Marginal Permafrost a Foundation Material in Transition
At the edges of the world's cold regions lie areas of marginal permafrost. It is a changing landscape that seems to be growing in extent, yet it retains chameleon-like qualities...

Projection of Water Needs: Case Study in Bloem Water Service Area, South Africa

A Participatory Approach to Development of a Decision Support Tool
Effective decision-making in water management must consider both the physical characteristics of the system and the social, political, and institutional aspects. These latter aspects cannot...

Characteristics and Implications of Relict Carbonate Paleoshorelines
Throughout the Florida-Bahamas region, the accumulation of coastal carbonate deposits, excepting the present highstand, appears to be episodic. Back through time these deposits provide...

Water Yield Responses to High and Low Spatial Resolution Climate Change Scenarios in the Missouri River Basin
Water yield responses to two climate change scenarios of different spatial scales were compared. Responses were determined by applying the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) hydrologic...

Into the Fourth Dimension
A team of contractors designed a pharmaceutical plant entirely in 3-D CAD, then linked the renderings to a cost program and scheduling software, adding a fourth dimension—time—to the process....
