Debris Flows and Mass Wasting in Volcanic Torrents
Observation of debris flow and topographic survey for mass wasting in the volcanic torrents clarified that (1) mass wasting processes such as rock fall from the side-wall and toppling...

Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler for Inlet Current Measurements
A BroadBand Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (BroadBand ADCP) was used to survey tidal currents at Shinnecock and Moriches Inlets, Long Island, NY. Measurements were made remotely form...

Using Geophysical Data to Assess Scour Development
The development of scour holes in the Connecticut River near the new Baldwin Bridge has been documented by comparing geophysical records collected before (1989), during (1990), and after...

Instrumentation for Detailed Bridge-Scour Measurements
A portable instrumentation system is being developed to obtain channel bathymetry during floods for detailed bridge-scour measurements. Portable scour measuring systems have four components:...

Storm Water Regulations—Aircraft Deicer/Anti-icers Operations
In 1991, FAA has initiated a storm water program to assist airport operators in complying the EPA Storm Water NPDES regulations. The first FAA project, a survey, addresses present operational...

Depth of Cover Surveys for Waterway Crossings
The majority of pipelines cross at least one waterway of some type, especially the interstate lines which from start to end cross numerous bayous, canals and major rivers. These waterways...

Real World Applications of Pipeline Leak Detection
This paper covers various leak detection methodologies and how they are integrated into the Williams Pipe Line system. Special emphasis is given to the dynamic model method of leak detection...

Identifying Transportation Control Measures: a Straighforward Approach to Identifying Transportation Control Measures to Address Concerns with Air Quality
The 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) exemplify society's increasing environmental concern. Regions not attaining the CAAA requirements must develop methods to reduce the pollution....

Trip Rates Adjustments for Impact Assessment and Congestion Management
Evidence that all urban trips are not equal and that trip rates need to be adjusted to reflect the differential contribution of trips to traffic loads and congestion is presented. Adjustments...

Traffic Accident Analysis System
While statistical data on traffic accidents are invaluable in devising effective traffic safety measures, the number of data items and samples are vast and they must be processed and edited...
