The Professional Standards Dilemma Facing the Geoprofessional Community

Quality Control for Monitoring Programs for Hydrogeologic Projects

For Whom the Bugs Toil
Bioventing is soil ventilation intended to enhance the biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbon contaminants in soils by providing a supply of oxygen. Soil microbes are capable of consuming...

Grouting Pains (Available in Geoenvironmental Engineering Special Issue)
The article focuses on a new grouting technique for filling holes drilled during site investigation. The holes are grouted as the drill is withdrawn from the hole, instead of filled later....

Gaining Ground
A giant of the profession looks back at his own career and talks about his concerns for the future of geotechnical engineering, which range from education and litigation to mergers and...

Geophysical Exploration for Engineering and Environmental Investigations
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has prepared this Manual, Geophysical Exploration for Engineering and Environmental Investigations, to provide an introduction for...

Geotechnical Baseline Reports of Underground Construction
Guidelines and Practices
For many years, several forms of interpretive geotechnical reports have been incorporated into the Contract Documents for underground construction projects. Based on recent feedback obtained...

Unsaturated Soil Engineering Practice
This collection of papers presented at the sessions on Unsaturated Soil Engineering Practice held during the First National Conference of the ASCE Geo-Institute at the Utah State University...

Dredging and Management of Dredged Material
This proceedings, Dredging and Management of Dredged Material, consists of papers presented at GeoLogan '97 Conference held in...

Debris-Flow Hazards Mitigation
Mechanics, Prediction, and Assessment
This proceedings, Debris-Flow Hazards Mitigation: Mechanics, Prediction, and Assessment, contains papers presented at the First International...

Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering
The Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering covers the broad area of practice known as geotechnical engineering. Papers are welcomed on topics such as foundations, retaining structures,...

Small Firms, Big Challenges
Does it pay to be small? Though many small engineering firms find strength in their size, others are hampered by limited resources and a specialization that diminishes their client base....

Geotechnical Instrumentation for Boston's Central Artery/Tunnel Project: An Overview

Use of SALQR Optimization in Large Aquifer Cleanup
A modified form of Differential Dynamic Programming (DDP), called Suc cessive Approximation to a Linear Quadratic Regulator (SALQR), is used to compute optimal policies for remediation...

Siting of Grade Control Structures
In siting a grade control structure in a stream, hydraulic considerations must be integrated with other important siting factors. A review of several of the important siting factors is...

South Carolina Department of Transportation's Statewide Program of Bridge Scour Evaluation
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has instituted a program to satisfy the FHWAs requirements to evaluate the scour potential of the Nations bridges. The SCDOT's...

Modeling Groundwater Response to a Perimeter Flood
A large industrial facility in the west of France was impacted by a flood in January 1995. Costs associated with the disruption in one week of production were estimated at $15E6 US. In...

Mitigation of Predation at a Juvenile Bypass Outfall Site
Reducing predation at an outfall has become an increasingly important consideration in the design of a juvenile salmonid bypass system. To minimize the exposure juveniles have with predators...

Potential-Scour Assessments at 130 Bridges in Iowa
A total of 130 highway bridges in Iowa were assessed for potential scour using a potential-scour index developed by the U.S. Geological Survey for a bridge-scour study in western Tennessee....

Infiltration Properties at Two Sites in the Konza Prairie
The spatial variability of soil hydraulic properties that govern infiltration were investigated at a pristine site and an agricultural site in the Konza Prairie Research Area of east-central...
