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

Secondary Containment Design Practices
Over the past several decades the design approach to containment of spills has not been consistent resulting in release of hazardous substances into the environment. The increased discovery...

Comparative Simulation of Oil Weathering
Oil spills in the aquatic environment, an unfortunately more and more common occurrence, cause contamination effects which negatively impact water quality, health of ecosystems and water...

Rehabilitating Arctic Tundra in Alaska
During the past 25 years, there has been significant progress in tundra rehabilitation. Initially, agronomic practices requiring large quantities of grass seed and fertilizer were believed...

Oil Spills: Prevention, Prediction, and Preparation
This paper summarizes some of the state and federal rules, assessment techniques, and response procedures being used by marine terminals along coastal California to prevent, predict, and...

Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Treatment and Supply Facilities Handling Highly Hazardous Chemicals
Due to increasing public concern of risks from handling highly hazardous chemicals at various facilities, a number of state regulatory agencies, including the State of California, have...

Catastrophic Floods and Their Risk in the Rivers of Albania

Estimate the Hazards of Bank Burst in the Lower Yellow River

Significance of Geologic Features on the Contaminant Migration from Landfill Sites
Contaminants (leachate) migration pathways in various media at hazardous waste and landfill sites are primarily defined by the local geologic features at such sites, namely:stratigraphy,...

Hazardous Soil Remediation: A Cooperative Effort between Industry and Government
E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company's Antioch Works (Dupont) is on the San Joaquin River 30 miles east of San Francisco, California. For about 25 years, ending in 1981, Dupont...

Health Risk Sensitivity to Variable and Uncertain Parameters
A methodology is presented that attempts to quantify the effects of individual variability and parameter uncertainty in a groundwater-driven health risk assessment. Two modeling approaches...

Regional Groundwater Management with Health Risk Assessment
A regional groundwater system may have several areas which are contaminated with organic chemicals. In general, the objective of groundwater management is to supply the demand for water...

System of River Floods Warning in Ukraine
The diversity of climatic, geomorphologic, and soil conditions causes significant space differences in the conditions of river flood formation in Ukraine. The Carpathians region is the...

The Use of Monitoring of Russian Water Objects for the Decrease of Disaster Consequences
The project of the United States Monitoring System for Water Resources was created. This system united the possibilities of different kinds of existed systems for observation of water...

A Cost-Effective approach to In Situ Remediation of Soil and Groundwater at a Diesel Fuel Spill Site
A bioventing and groundwater treatment system designed to enhance the natural biodegradation of diesel fuel residuals in soil and prevent further groundwater degradation was installed...

Draining Himalayan Glacial Lakes Before They Burst
Glacial lakes are a common feature of the Himalaya in general and the Khumbu Himal region of eastern Nepal in particular. Some of these glacial lakes are naturally unstable because of...

Management of Contaminated Groundwater Using Natural Attenuation
Many state and federal regulations governing remediation of contaminated groundwater give preference to the implementation of remedial alternatives which are capable of providing protection...

The South Bay Ocean Outfall
For more than 60 years, raw sewage has flowed down the hills of Tijuana, Mexico into the Tijuana River, crossing the U.S.-Mexican border. The sewage contaminates the low-lying river valley...
