Foundation Engineering Constraints in Karst Terrane
Cavity-prone carbonate rocks are found in many Appalachian valleys and represent a poorly recognized hazard. This paper reviews the nature of the problem of founding above these Cambro-Ordovician...

Location of Geologic Discontinuities by Geophysical Techniques
An overview of the seismic refraction method and resistivity methods is given. These two geophysical techniques are integrated into a systematic method for locating geologic discontinuities...

Some Dilatometer Test Results in Pennsylvania and New York
This paper starts with a brief introduction to the dilatometer and piezoblade. Test results in four different areas are presented. DMT soundings at LR 67057 (Legislative Route numbers...

Design Methodology for Foundations on Stone Columns
Stone columns offer the geotechnical engineer a valuable and viable technique for stabilizing sites underlain by soils ranging from soft clays to loose silty sands. A discussion of the...

The Effect of Hard Stabilization upon Dry Beach Width

Digital Interactive Ocean Feature Analysis Techniques in an Operational Environment

Sand Accounting Methodology for Barrier Island Sediment Budget Analysis
A wide variety of theoretical and analytical techniques are used for estimating island budgets, but surveying has provided the most accurate means of evaluating change. To make comparisons...

Impacts of Tidal Inlet Formation on the Physical Characteristics of a Barrier Beach—Estuary System
A new tidal inlet at Nauset Beach, an 11 km-long barrier beach in Chatham, Massachusetts, has severely impacted the physical characteristics of the estuary-barrier beach system of which...

Environment Exploitation by Prehistorical Population of Rio De Janeiro
The specific purpose of this project was to establish the cultural contexts in the area being studied as well as to define the mechanisms of environmental manipulation that were employed...

Perspectives on Irrigation/Drainage Education and Training
The Task Committee on Water Resources Education and Training (TCWRE) was organized in 1985 for the purpose of conducting an opinion survey to assess the adequacy of current education and...

100 Years of Sedimentation Study by the USGS
On January 15, 1889, the U.S. Geological Survey began collecting sediment data on the Rio Grande at Embudo, New Mexico. During the past 100 years the U.S. Geological Survey's...

Corps of Engineers' Mississippi River Sediment Studies
In conjunction with the 1838 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hydrographic survey of the Mississippi River, CPT A. Talcott collected sediment samples in the passes 'to determine...
