Mitteilungen der Oesterreichischen Geologischen Gesellschaft 79: 213-283
The rapid increase of waste-quantity and problematic substances, which are a potential danger to lithosphere, atmosphere and last but not least to all living creatures, make the installation of Controlled Tippings absolutely necessary. Controlled Tipping means reduction respectively elimination of environment-contaminations. To reach this aim various specialities must co-operate, whereat the contribution of geologists is a very great one. This allegation will be proved by showing the great range of use concerning planing, construction and recultivation or reconstruction of refuse tips. The measures of recultivation and reconstruction will be especially discussed, also the different systems of drainage and tightening (advantage and disadvantage of artificial and natural thightening-materials).
