Abstract/Summary

This report results from work that was first proposed to a meeting of the International Association of Engineering Geology (IAEG), Commission No.1 held in Bratislava (Slovakia) in 1992. Following the publication of the Commission’s report on Engineering Geological Maps (Engineering geological maps (1976) and reports on the description and classification of rock and soil and on recommended symbols for engineering geological mapping (Bull. Int. Assoc. Eng. Geol. 24 (1981) 235; see also 227), a period of consolidation ensued in which the approaches suggested in those reports were implemented. The decision to prepare an additional report reflected the increasing need to apply these approaches to a range of specific activities. The background to the report was provided in a paper by two of the authors presented at the IAEG conference in Athens in 1997 (Proc Int. Symp. Int. Assoc. Eng. Geol. Environ. 2 (1997) 2103).
