Abstract: Proceedings of the Geological Environment and Soil Properties Convention held in Houston, Texas, October 17-21, 1983. Sponsored by the ASCE Geotechnical Engineering Division. Geological Environment and Soil Properties contains many papers coverings a broad range of issues relevant to geotechnical engineering. Topics include chemical profiles in soft clay and the role of long-term diffusion; geological aspects of a cutting failure in clay; geology and soil properties of Winnipeg; slope stability in coarse sediments; stress-deformation properties of loess and loess-derived; and characteristics of guri soils. These proceedings will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers in the field of geotechnical engineering.
