The environmental target: In recent years floods all over Europe drastically increased the importance of monitoring geotechnical characteristics of loose sedimentary geological environment beneath riverside embankments. The methodological aim: The goal of the presented methodological research was to solve some important soil testing problems concerning sedimentary embankment basements. The main aim was to develop a scheme of several geophysical profiling complexes for the quality controlled recognition of some frequent soil-classes (clay, silt, sand, gravel etc.) and for the quality controlled estimation of some important geotechnical parameters (porosity, permeability, consistency, clay content, silica content as well as geometry of the layers etc.) of alluvial environment under the surface into 10 m - 30 m depth along riverside earth dams.
