Geotechnical engineering, also known as geotechnics, is the application of scientific methods and engineering principles to the acquisition, interpretation, and use of knowledge of materials of the Earth's crust and earth materials for the solution of engineering problems and the design of engineering works. It is the applied science of predicting the behavior of the Earth, its various. The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of biochar application on soils in the main tobacco-producing areas in China. The study was conducted in four study regions in China, where the same three experimental treatments were set up in each area, including a control (CK), a treatment involving the application of chemical fertilizer (F), and a treatment involving the application of Author: Huanhuan Wang, Tianbao Ren, Yuqing Feng, Kouzhu Liu, Huilin Feng, Guoshun Liu, Hongzhi Shi.

Tropical soils cover about 30 million km 2 of the Earth's surface, and are loosely defined as those weathering profiles that are characteristic of the non-desert low latitudes.

Such soils are defined principally by climate and stage of genetic development with particular examples dependent upon parent material and topography. The term ‘tropical soils’ is not as geographically inclusive as might be inferred from the name.

From a pedological point of view, the term traditionally does not include all soils occurring in tropical environments, soils of low‐latitude deserts typically being excluded, as are some pedogenically young (poorly developed) soils.

The Handbook of Tropical Residual Soil Engineering is intended as a complete reference source and manual for every engineer working on or interested in soil and foundation engineering in tropical areas. Almost all aspects of tropical residual soils are treated, including a range of engineering applications.
