Combining the Census Tiger Files and Geographic Information System Technology for More Effective Transportation Planning
The Bureau of the Census, in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey, has created a topological data base containing every street and block face in the United States for use in the...

Advances in Trip Matrix Estimation
The derivation of Origin-Destination (O-D) trip matrices is a vital component of much transportation planning. Obtaining accurate O-D data often poses a challenge on account of the large...

Traffic Congestion Data Collection and Analysis System
The system was developed to allow traffic engineers to analyze the magnitude, duration and location of traffic congestion on highways and city streets. It is used to prioritize traffic...

Maximizing Your Use of Interactive Graphics in Transportation Simulation Modeling
The paper discusses the capabilities, through the aid of computer graphics,now that exist to take analysis and reporting of traffic simulation model studies several steps further than...

A Survey of Three-Dimensional Numerical Estuarine Models
This paper surveys the existing 3-D estuarine hydrodynamic and solute transport models by a review of the commonly used assumptions and approximations, and by an examination of the methods...

Application of Geological Information to Arizona Flood Hazard Assessment
Hydrological modeling procedures applied to regulatory flood-hazard zonation can be misapplied when assumptions concerning flood-hazardous processes are violated. Geomorphological mapping...

Major Sedimentation Issues for the USGS
Historically, sediment information has been used primarily in planning for engineering structures that were designed to meet a single or a very limited number of objectives. Today most...

Effects of Turbulence on Price AA Meter Rotors
Field and laboratory studies were conducted during 1988 and 1989 by the U.S. Geological survey to determine the effect of turbulence on the performance of price AA meter rotors. Two different...

Pending Oil Spill Law: An Environmentalist's View

ASCE Salary Survey 1989
The 20th biennial ASCE salary survey of the engineering profession conducted by the ASCE Committee on Employment Conditions during the fourth quarter of 1989 is presented. It consists...

Processing Automatically Collected Patronage Data
Since the late 1970's, the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) has had the capability to automatically collect trip origin and destination data from its faregates. This...

An Acoustic Doppler Discharge-Measurement System
A discharge-measurement system that uses a vessel-mounted acoustic Doppler current profiler has been developed and tested by the U.S. Geological Survey. Discharge measurements using the...

Data Acquisition for Determining the Physical Impacts of Navigation
Research is being conducted to determine the physical effects of navigation on the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Extensive field data on various aspects of physical effects of...

Beach Evolution in Sulphur Island
Seasonal variation of shore area of Sulphur Island is studied by analyzing aerial photographs of the island taken seasonally for the past two years. Analysis reveals that shore area in...

A Comprehensive Method for Capacity Analysis and Signal Timing Design
This paper presents a rational methodology which combines several of the most significant programs in the signalized intersection and traffic signal timing design are in a comprehensive...

Building of a Conceptual Model at the UE25-C Hole Complex
U.S. Geological Survey and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory are attempting to construct a conceptual model of the UE25-c hole complex. An interdisciplinary approach is discussed where all...

U.S. Geological Survey DLG-3 and Bureau of the Census TIGER Data: Development and GIS Applications
The U.S. Geological Survey has been actively developing digital cartographic and geographic data and standards since the early 1970's. One product is Digital Line Graph data, which offer...

Preparing a Safety Analysis Report Using the Building Block Approach
The credibility of the applicant in a licensing proceeding is severely impacted by the quality of the license application, particularly the Safety Analysis Report. An incomplete, unintelligible,...

Arterial Traffic Flow in Construction Zones
Previously, NETSIM (NETwork SIMulation model) was the only available simulation model that could investigate a wide mix of traffic control and traffic management strategies for a network...
