At present, deep earth resources remain poorly understood and entirely under-utilised. There is a growing appreciation of the important role deep earth will play in future sustainability, particularly in opportunities for new and sustainable large-scale energy alternatives, and extraction of resources through mining and greenhouse mitigation. Deep Rock Mechanics: From Research to Engineering is a collection of papers on the effective development of deep earth resources, which were presented at the International Conference on Geo-mechanics, Geo-Energy and Geo-Resources 2018 (Chengdu, P.R. China, 22-24 September 2018). The contributions aim at breaking beyond existing patterns of discovery, to advance research on geomechanical and geophysical processes in deep earth resources and energy development, enhancing deep earth energy and mineral extraction and mitigating harmful atmospheric emissions.

Deep Rock Mechanics: From Research to Engineering covers a wide range of topics:

1. Deep rock mechanics and mining theory
2. Water resources development and protection
3. Unconventional oil and gas extractions
4. CO2 sequestrations technologies and nuclear waste disposal
5. Geothermal energy
6. Mining engineering
7. Petroleum engineering
8. Geo-environmental engineering
9. Civil geotechnical engineering

Deep Rock Mechanics: From Research to Engineering promotes safer and greener ways for energy and resource production at great depth, and will serve as a must-have reference for academics and professionals involved or interested in geo-mechanics, geo-energy, and geo-resources.
