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...

Amino Acid Geochronology Applied to the Dating of Eolianites on San Salvador Island, Bahamas
Using amino acid racemization data measured on carbonate eolianite sediments, we assess the ability of amino acid geochronology to distringuish among several stratigraphic units on San...

Recent Developments in Stochastic Modeling and Upscaling of Hydrologic Properties in Tuff
A set of detailed geostatistical simulations of porosity has been produced for a layered stratigraphic sequence of welded and non-welded volcanic tuffs at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. The simulations...

Origin, Development and Stratigraphy of Tidal Deltas at Hurricane Pass, Pinellas County, Florida—An Example of Modern Tidal Delta Architecture from a Microtidal Coast
Sequential analysis of aerial photographs taken between 1926 and 1990 have helped to define the morphological development of the tidal deltas at Hurricane Pass, and along with other historical...

Interpreting Debris-Flow Hazard from Study of Fan Morphology
The deposits, stratigraphy, and surface morphology of debris-flow fans are a record of past debris-flow activity, and as such can provide useful information about debris-flow hazards....

40Ar/³9Ar Laser Fusion and K-Ar Ages From Lathrop Wells, Nevada, and Cima, California: The Age of the Latest Volcanic Activity in the Yucca Mountain Area
K-Ar and 40Ar/39Ar ages from the Lathrop Wells volcanic center, Nevada, and from the Cima volcanic field,...

Foundation Evaluation of Barkley Dam for Seismic Analysis
An in-situ site investigation was performed at Barkley Dam, KY to gather essential information on the stratigraphy and nature of the foundation soils. From this information the site was...

The Petroleum Geology of the Oceanside Trough, Capistrano Basin, Offshore Southern California
The Caoistrano Basin represents one of the last essentially unexplored Neogene depocenters along the southern California coast. Within the greater Capistrano Basin, the Oceanside Trough...

Evidence for Eustatic Influence on Cenozoic Sedimentation of Coastal Washington and Oregon
Comparison of the absolute age boundaries of the West Coast biozonation with the Cenozoic global cycle chart indicates that 12 of the 15 zonal boundaries coincide with regressive sequence...

Preservation Potential of the Delaware Atlantic Coast Barrier—Backbarrier System
Volumes of Delaware Atlantic barrier and shoreface lithosomes were digitized to evaluate preservation potential during transgression. Erosion during headland retreat of less than 0.5 km...

Late Quaternary (Pre-Holocene) Coastal Systems of New Jersey
The coastline and the area adjacent to the present shoreline of New Jersey has not been explored as intensely as the same region of neighboring states for pre-Holocene high sea level stillstands....

The Stratigraphic Record of Oxygen Isotope Stage 5 on the Maryland Inner Shelf
Present knowledge of Holocene transgressive coastal/shelf systems, while extensive, cannot directly address the effects and consequences of an extended period of relatively high sea levels...

Controls on Sand Resources: Cape Canaveral Area, Florida
Analysis of Holocene stratigraphy and sediments of the continental shelf off Cape Canaveral Florida shows that three basic factors control the quality of sand resources. Antecedent topography...

Practical Technology Resulting from MADE Research
As is often the case, when theoretical research is performed, practical technology is developed in the process. This has occurred with the Macrodispersion Experiment (MADE) conducted at...

Predicting Alluvial-Fan Sediment-Water Slurry Characteristics and Behavior from Sedimentology and Stratigraphy of Past Deposits
Slurry characteristics can be predicted by a combination of field and laboratory analyses. Field observations are needed to determine deposit stratigraphy and to estimate the abundance...

Sediment Sources, Transport and Delivery to an Alluvial Fan, Caliente Creek, California
Sediment delivery to a proposed flood detention reservoir site in the medial region of the Caliente Creek alluvial fan is dependant on the magnitude and duration of flood flows. Because...

Geologic and Geomorphic Controls on Bank Erosion
Bank erosion is affected by both geologic (alluvial stratigraphy, sediment type, tectonics) and geomorphic (channel and valley morphology and history) variables. For example, present meander...

Highway Damage Due to Subsidence
In this study subsidence profiles over three longwall panels, which were mined beneath state highways in Southeastern Ohio, were obtained. Immediate and short term subsidences were recorded....
