Fatigue Damage Accumulation Under Non-Gaussian Loads
The stochastic fatigue life prediction method, namely the Rayleigh approximation method, is almost exact when the loading is both normal (Gaussian) and narrowband. However, in many realistic...

Management of Spent Nuclear Fuel in Sweden—Experiences and Plans
The principle adopted for the management of spent nuclear fuel from the Swedish reactors is final disposal without reprocessing. During the 1980ies systems and facilities for the transport...

Isotopic Evidence of Complex Ground-Water Flow at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, USA
Strontium isotopes (expressed as per mill deviation from mean sea water, δ87Sr) reflect interaction between ground water and the aquifer through...

Economics of Endangered Salmon in the Pacific Northwest
Economic factors play important roles in designating endangered species and the design of recovery plans. Economics is important irrespective of the role it plays in decisions to classify...

Snake River Salmon Recovery Plan Development
The process used by the Snake River Salmon Recovery Team to develop its recovery plan is described. Major conditions affecting fish survival are identified. The Team's approach to evaluate...

Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program Strategy for Salmon
Three species of Snake River salmon have been listed as threatened or endangered under the federal Endangered Species Act. In response, the Northwest Power Planning Council worked with...

The Impact of Global Warming on Water Resources: Overview and Implications for Coastal California
In the past two years, impressive evidence has accumulated that global warming is occurring and is related to the increase in greenhouse gasses. The impact of the warming process on water...

The Strategic Development of a Sole Source Aquifer to Improve Water Quality While Minimizing Environmental Impact
A water supply project is currently underway which prevents future degradation of a sole source aquifer while providing a groundwater resource with limited usage restrictions. Salt water...

Global Distribution of Water Through the Oceans
The paper is a conceptual investigation of a pipeline and bladder system for conveying and storing fresh water in the oceans. Modeling is recommended to provide background on what could...

Urban Runoff Considerations in the Design of Wastewater Management Programs for Coastal Areas
The continuing increase in the population of the nation's coastal areas is placing additional stress on coastal aquatic systems faster than it can be reduced through improved wastewater...

The Kettering Community Demonstration Project Non-Point Pollution Control and Environmental Enhancement Program
With the advent of the U.S. EPA's municipal/ industrial NPDES and Coastal Zone Management programs the development of effective non-point pollution control programs has become the most...

Optimization of a Maintenance Station Network
This report is about a method for optimizing maintenance station and storage networks for maintenance of various traffic channels like streets, roads and sea channels. The results that...

Characterizing Coastal Pollution Sources: Lessons Learned by the National Coastal Pollutant Discharge Inventory Program
The past ten years, NOAA has been developing and refining its capabilities to inventory and estimate pollutant discharges form point and nonpoint sources located in the Nation's coastal...

Free the Elwha|
The Elwha River flows northward from the middle of Washington's Olympic Peninsula to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. As a coastal river basin, it was once home to all five species of Pacific...

Depositional Sediment on Intertidal Marshes Near Terrebonne Bay and Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana
The net transport of inorganic sediment through tidal bayous and dispersal into adjacent marsh systems are considered important contribution to marsh accretion. Marsh habitats are dependent...

Marsh Submergence vs. Marsh Accretion: Interpreting Accretion Deficit Data in Coastal Louisiana
The apparent imbalance between relative sea-level rise and vertical marsh accretion is frequently cited as a major factor in the problem of wetland loss in Louisiana. Rates of relative...

The National Status and Trends Program: Development and Future Directions
NOAA's National Status and Trends Program was initiated in 1983 to provide information on environmental quality related to levels and effects of toxic contaminants in U.S. coastal and...
