TRB Committee on Engineering Geology (AFP10)
 
 
Scope: This committee is concerned with the principles of engineering geology as they relate to:
    1. Distribution and relevance of earth materials,
    2. Potentially hazardous naturally occurring and human-induced geologic hazards,
    3. Assessment of risks of damage and/or injury resulting from the occurrence of natural and induced hazards as they can be quantified for application to planning, location, design, construction, and maintenance of transportation systems.
