Critical Evaluation of Risk Assessment: A Look from the Inside Out

Non-Growing Season Water Budgets for a Shortgrass Steppe
The seasonal characteristics of water inputs and outputs during the non growing seasons (October through May) of 1986 to 1992 in a shortgrass steppe are presented in this paper. About...

Concept Ecology Integrated Project Engineering and Environment; Relating a Project to the Surroundings
The selected alignment of the 27.3 km long Veterans Expressway in Tampa, Florida was constructed for better access to the downtown area from a relatively rural but fast growing area of...

South Florida Water Management District: Reconstructing the Everglades Ecosystem
Anthropogenic influences have reduced florida's Everglades over the last 140 years to a struggling remnant of its historic size and ecological potential. The State of Florida's...

The Importance of Plant Community Structure on Form and Function of Created Wetland Systems
If we consider that the creation and the restoration of a wetland system begins with the design of the hydrology, then establishing the form and function of a wetland begins with the design...

Design of Riparian Habitat Replacement in Active Floodplains
Conventional flood control engineering techniques and approaches that have been traditionally been applied are now challenged by the public and no longer readily available as floodplain...

The Balanced Indigenous Population (BIP) and Statistical Process Control (SPC) in Marine Pollution Ecology
This account discusses the regulatory requirement of maintaining a Balanced Indigenous Population (BIP) as it relates to an ocean outfall. A brief history of the development of the BIP...

Reversibility Measures for Sustainable Decisions
Increasing stress on the environment and current norms of sustainable development have prompted the formalization of new approaches to decision making. This may be achieved through the...

Modeling the Ecological Impacts of Flaming Gorge Dam Operations
Hydropower operations at Flaming Gorge Dam on the Green River in Utah, U.S.A., can produce rapid downstream changes in flow and stage during a day. These changes can, in turn, affect ecological...

Vulnerability of Water Resources to Global Climate Change in the Agricultural Midwest- Ecological, Economic, and Regulatory Aspects
As climate changes, so will water resources. General climate change will alter the distribution of hydrometeorological events and will affect water use, in turn resulting in further alterations...

Modeling of Possible Outflow of Radionuclides from Deep Burials into Biosphere

Biosphere Modelling for Radioactive Waste Disposal

Biosphere Model for Assessing Doses from Nuclear Waste Disposal

Biosphere FEP List Development Specific to Yucca Mountain

The Part of Precipitation in Some Ecological Problems of the Dnister Basin
The purpose of the present paper is to study the peculiarity of precipitation falling in the Dnister basin, their distribution on territory, and research of several year's precipitation...

Alternative Urban Flood Control
The hydrological impact of urban growth on urban ecology, water resources, and specifically on urban flooding has been profound. Urban growth in Iran, assuming the continuation of past...

Ecological and Biological Considerations in River Restoration
When planning river restoration projects, proper consideration must be given to the target resources of concern. This should include provisions to meet the physical, hydraulic, and biological...

River Meander Zones and Floodplain Reconnection
A natural disturbance regime concept is described for understanding ecosystem changes due to human activities. Re-establishment of river meander zones is proposed as an application of...

Design Guidance—Instream and Bank Restoration Structures
Despite an urgent need for river and stream restoration design criteria, little guidance has emerged in recent years. Existing guidance is largely unsatisfactory, promoting empiricism...
