GeoHazardTalks are a series of workshops developed by transportation industry and academia to promote the safe design and repair of transportation infrastructure and resources. Each workshop will present innovative methods and processes for landslide repair, rockfall mitigation, ground improvement, and soil slope stabilization. Particular attention will be paid to geohazard events affecting critical assets (highways and transportation corridors, pipelines, transmission lines, and other important infrastructure). Participants will learn design methodologies for a variety of innovative mitigation techniques, proper construction for various solutions, and will be guided through several case studies showing the application of various solutions with actual design examples. Coupled with the workshops will be keynote presentations to bring cutting-edge technologies and ideas to the participants.
