Remote Sensing: A New Revolution in Geotechnical Engineering
Remote sensing in the form of satellite imagery has become part of our everyday life—from displaying boring locations at a job site to the various mapping apps on our smart phones that help us get there....

The Rise of UAVs Signals a New Era in Geotechnics
Big Data in Geotechnics is Coming from Above
If you have been following the news, browsing the internet, or even gazing up in the sky, it is likely that you have seen an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), also commonly known as Unmanned Aircraft System...

Making Big Data Work for You and Your Project: A 3-D Geotechnical Model is a Smart Way to Work
Modeling the stratigraphy beneath a site and assigning soil and rock properties are important steps in geotechnical engineering. Geotechnical engineers often need to model ground conditions...

Enhanced Detection and Mapping of Buried Utilities—A Sustainability Perspective
The social and environmental impacts and benefits of projects make up the triple bottom line that represents a modern view of sustainable project development. Rather than considering only...

Geologic Mapping for Offshore Engineering, Mississippi Delta

Mapping Aquifer Zones Based on Microbial Ecology and Geochemistry in a Landfill Leachate Plume with a Self Organizing Map
We implemented a self-organizing map to delineate aqueous geochemistry and microbial ecology in landfill leachate. In subsurface ecosystems microorganisms mitigate a myriad of chemical...

Evaluation of Satellite-Based Impervious Surface Data for the Mid-Atlantic Region Using an Independently Collected, High-Resolution Validation Database
Satellite-based estimates of impervious surfaces are being produced for the entire United States as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Landsat-based National Land Cover Database...

Regional Disaster Resilience
A Guide for Developing an Action Plan
Regional Disaster Resilience: A Guide for Developing an Action Plan provides a much-needed strategy to develop the level of preparedness necessary...

Lessons Learned from Experience Dealing with Risks of Extreme Events: Part I
The five speakers in this session talked about a wide variety of topics, including schedule dependencies in hurricane preparedness, knowledge mapping across networks, extreme events in...

Surveying and Mapping: History, Current Status, and Future Projections
Since the founding of ASCE in 1852, remarkable changes have occurred in all areas of civil engineering practice, including surveying and mapping. Instruments employed in surveying and...

Depth Measurement Using Remotely Sensed Data, Specifically A casi
The compact airborne spectrographic imager (casi) is what is referred to as an imaging spectrometer. This is an optical device that is mounted on an aircraft and used to collect high resolution...

Returning to the Source
One hundred years ago, Las Vegas was a dry, dusty dot on the map with a population of only 100. The city grew up to become perhaps the gambling capital of the world, and more recently...

Integration of Watershed and Ecological Site Land Classification Scales Using GIS Technology
Advanced analysis of hydrologic processes for use in natural resource simulation models and related applications including rangeland health assessments can be facilitated by the integration...

Dealing with Debris
A comprehensive debris-management plan for the city of Houston will facilitate and coordinate the management of debris removal and disposal following a disaster to mitigate any threat...
