You are, or imagine you are, retired and reflecting. You recall unfulfilled personal and professional dreams, some held for decades. You might have wanted to walk the Appalachian Trail. Perhaps you longed...

Appalachian Piedmont Regolith: Relations of Saprolite and Residual Soils to Rock-Type

The Saint Lawrence River System, Atlantic Coast of Qu?bec
At the 1:250,000 scale, Quebec has 13 773 km of coasts, 6 772 km of which belong solely to the Saint Lawrence River System. This system can be divided into six portions: river, limnetic...

Probabilistic Characteristics of Elapsed Time Between Rainfalls
The elapsed time between rainfalls is analyzed statistically using the hourly rain data at two locations: the flat-plain at Urbana, Illinois and the northwestern Appalachian foothills...

Acid Mine Drainage Control Utilizing Fly Ash
Acid mine drainage is a serious environmental problem confronting the Appalachian region. Fly ash, the air particulate residual from the combustion of coal, is also an environmental concern...

The U.S. Office of Surface Mining (OSM) Proposed Strength-Durability Classification System
Federal regulations for the surface mining of coal stress proper design and construction of stable waste rock disposal areas. A key to the long-term stability of these excess spoil fills...

Precipitation Variability Effects on Modeled Soil Water Deficits
Effective management of forages in steep Appalachian pastures requires an understanding of hydrologic and microclimatic processes on the area. This study was conducted to determine the...

Land Management and Water Yield in the Appalachians
Watershed treatments on the Fernow Experimental Forest have included individual tree selection, commercial clearcutting, clearcutting upper and lower halves of watersheds, clearcutting...

Foundation Engineering Constraints in Karst Terrane
Cavity-prone carbonate rocks are found in many Appalachian valleys and represent a poorly recognized hazard. This paper reviews the nature of the problem of founding above these Cambro-Ordovician...

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....

Effect of Irrigated Agriculture on Ground-Water Quality in the Appalachian and Northeastern States
