Proceedings of the 63rd Annual Highway Geology Symposium (HGS 2012)

The Highway Geology Symposium (HGS) was established to foster a better understanding and closer cooperation between geologists and civil engineers in the highway industry. The HGS held its first meeting on March 14, 1950, in Richmond Virginia. In 2012, the 63rd Highway Geology Symposium was held in Redding, California. 29 papers were presented over five Technical Sessions. The sessions focused on rockfall, site investigations, roadways, landslides, structures, and project case studies. Topics covered subjects such as rock slope protection, monitoring, and stabilization, debris flow barriers, geotechnical investigations, stability analysis, slope movement, ground movement, sinkholes, and highway instability.
