The mission of the Geotechnics of Soil Erosion Committee is to advance the understanding of soil erosion and its prevention and remediation in geotechnical engineering practice and education. The topics covered by this committee include the geotechnical engineering aspects of the erosion of soils, such as erosion at bridges and dams (scour); meander migration and other riverbed evolutions; erosion at inlets including tidal problems; piping of dams; erosion of tailing dams; slope erosion; erosion near platforms and pipelines; beach, sea cliff, lake bluff, and river bank erosion; erosion of highways and other embankments; and sediment loads in water.
