PODCAST: George Koerner on Exposed Geomembrane Performance

George Koerner, Director of the Geosynthetic Institute, had the honor this year of delivering the first Koerner Lecture—a series named in honor of his father Dr. Robert Koerner, who is internationally recognized as one of the godfathers of geosynthetics and who continues his work as Director Emeritus at GSI. Last year, I had the pleasure to see both Koerners at an ASCE’s GeoChicago conference and ... »

Effective Education for Erosion and Sediment Control System Adoption

Erosion and sediment control advances have produced enormously beneficial results, in infrastructure performance and economics; yet, rates of erosion and sediment control system adoption rates have lagged behind the research supporting them. Dr. Eve Brantley, an extension specialist and associate professor with Auburn University’s Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences Department in the renowned C... »
