The charge to this committee—to envision the future of geotechnology—
is at once a grand challenge and a problem. In
many ways, geotechnology is a mature field having come to its
majority in the last 50 years. Many serious problems have been
solved. We know how to build strong foundations, safe dams,
and stable roads and tunnels. We have a good understanding
about the behavior and protection of groundwater, how to
extract the petroleum resources, and develop a geothermal

We thank the University of Washington Department of Economics for
sponsoring ‘Frontiers in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics’,
a conference in honor of Gardner M. Brown, Jr., that led to this book. In
particular, we thank Richard Parks for his eﬀorts in planning a wonderful
event and helping to lay the foundation for this book; Neil Bruce, who sup-
ported and encouraged us to plan a conference worthy of Gardner’s career;
and Gary Waterman who helped to make the event, and in turn this book,
Discover the many facets of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The first part of this book describes the current thermodynamic formalism recognized as the classical theory. The second part focuses on different approaches. Throughout the presentation, the emphasis is on problem-solving applications. To help build your understanding, some problems have been analyzed using several formalisms to underscore their differences and their similarities.
