Any attempt to stop the settlement without making the proposed preliminary investigation would be an irresponsible gamble. Since I have witnessed many gambles of this kind I can state from personal experience that the savings associate with inadequate preliminary investigations are entirely out of proportion to the financial risks.”

I feel overwhelmed to have received affection and cooperation from all of you. ISEG has a glorious past beginning from 1965 since when it is tirelessly working towards development of Engineering Geology not only in India but also on an international platform, it being the Indian National group of International Association of Engineering Geology and Environment (IAEG). Under the aegis of ISEG, the Journal of Engineering Geology (JOEG) was founded in the year 1966. ISEG council is taking care of JOES. JOEG celebrated its Golden Jubilee during 2016 and a special Golden Jubilee issue (Vol. 41) of the journal was released during EGCON 2017 which was the last issue to be published in form of hard copy version. From volume 42 onwards, the journal is being published online through its official website

JOEG is the only journal published in India which not only serves engineering geologist & geophysicists but also cater a vast fraternity of civil & geotechnical engineers, mining engineers, hydro geologists, tunnels and dam designers working in hydropower, infrastructure, landslide hazard, mining, environment and other related sectors. This is a peer reviewed journal. The journal is approved by CSIR-NISCAIR in 2017 and also abstracted during 2018 with Indian Citation Index (ICI). The journal has a very exclusive editorial board consisting of thirty renowned national & international experts in various fields of engineering geology, geotechnical engineering, rock mechanics, engineering geophysics, civil engineering and other allied fields.

Journal of Engineering Geology is not only the flagship publication of Indian Society of Engineering Geology but also a harbinger of knowledge sharing and propagating innovation in the field of engineering geology and geotechniques.

Keeping pace with present time in prevailing circumstances, ISEG had organized a three days International Conference on “Recent Advances in Geotechnics (EGCON 2021)” during December, 2021 through Virtual Mode with the objective to provide a platform to deliberate upon recent developments in the field of Engineering Geology, Engineering Geophysics, Earthquake Engineering, Remote Sensing and other related areas for development of infrastructure projects. Selected papers of EGCON2021 will be published in the next volumes of the journal.

With the new ISEG council taking over, I as President of the society along with our new flag bearers will strive hard to carry forward the legacy left behind by all the previous members and take ISEG as well as JOEG to new heights.
