International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering
Two of the objectives of 2001-2005 Technical Committee 1 “Offshore and Nearshore Geotechnical Engineering” of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) were: -Provide support to ISSMGE member countries requesting dissemination of offshore/nearshore geotechnical expertise from other countries. -Prepare documentation that gives practical information on executing nearshore and/or offshore geotechnical projects. In view of these objectives, Technical Committee 1 (TC1) members agreed that industry would be served with a handbook giving an inventory of geotechnical and geophysical data acquisition techniques for characterising offshore and nearshore soil conditions. This should include recommended planning schedules for offshore and nearshore projects. Thus, TC1 members supported by numerous other colleagues prepared this handbook and made this available to attendees of the two September 2005 Geotechnical Conferences: -16th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ICSMGE) in Osaka, Japan. -International Symposium on Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics (ISFOG) in Perth, Australia. This handbook was also published on the web site of the ISSMGE at about the same time.
