Effect of Future High Speed Ground Transportation on Airport Expansion Needs in the State of Washington
A high speed ground transportation system is proposed to be built in the State of Washington to connect all regions. The proposed system will be approximately 700 miles in length and would...

Are Landscape Patterns Related to Marsh Loss Processes?
Marsh loss that occurs in Louisiana is seldom associated with shoreline erosion of lakes and bayous; instead, marshes break up internally. Marsh loss is attributed to processes that stress...

Traffic and Lead Pollution on Lake Maracaibo's Western Coast
This project focused on Nerium Oleander (NO) (Berberia), an ornamental plant. Chemical analyses (acid digestion and atomic absorption spectrophotometry) of the plant's tissue and the soil...

Habitat Degradation of the LaBranche Wetlands and an Approach to its Restoration
Considered the most productive wetlands within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, the LaBranche Wetlands south of Lake Pontchartrain consists of over 18,000 acres of brackish to fresh marsh...

Pointe Mouillee: a 4600-acre Multiple Purpose Habitat Constructed and Restored in Western Lake Erie, USA
Pointe Mouille, part of a Michigan Wildlife Management Area, is the site of a major restoration project funded and constructed in the late 1970's by the US Army Corps of Engineers and...

Chlorinated Pesticide in a Fish Farming Station in the Lake Maracaibo Basin
The present evaluation of chlorinated pesticides is the result of the detection of tumors, hepatic and renal necrosis and skeletal anomalies in species of fish cultivated in artificial...

Incremental Influence of Shore Structures Determined Using a Shoreline Change Model
Shore erosion at Ogden Dunes, Indiana, is thought to be caused by shore structures making up the Burns International Harbor complex, located on the southern shore of Lake Michigan. Long-term...

Evolution and Dynamics of the Chilka Lake
The Chilka Lake, the largest coastal lagoon in Asia, has occupied a possible tectonic depression along the east coast of India. Although the open sea coast was along the western margin...

Shoreline Management Along the Cohesive Shorelines of the Great Lakes
The primary focus of Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs) is minimizing the risks to life and property due to flood and erosion hazards. Various approaches are utilized to minimize these...

A Wave-Energy Dissipation Structure for Shore Protection and Beach Generation, Recovery, and Stabilization
WAVEBLOCK a steel reinforced concrete modularized structure designed to dissipate the energy of saline and freshwater waves is described. The modularized structure, which weighs upwards...

Meeting Information and Communication Needs in Regional Coastal Zone Management: Case Studies from the Great Lakes
Recent initiatives in regional coastal management within the Ontario Great Lakes basin, such as the preparation of Shoreline Management Plans by Ontario Conservation Authorities, background...

Overview of the FAST-TRAC IVHS Program
A major new IVHS initiative, called FAST-TRAC, is taking place in Oakland County, Michigan. It originated as a bottom-up strategy for solving mobility and highway safety problems in this...

Lake-Level Declines in Karst Lake During Droughts
Lake-level declines in Brooklyn Lake, a karst lake in north-central Florida, have been investigated. Below average rainfall, vertical leakage to the underlying aquifer system, declining...

A Lake Water Quality Management Model to Evaluate Stormwater Management
A research project was completed to develop a dynamic lake water quality management model for Lake Tarpon, a 10.3 km2, shallow lake in Central Florida....

3D-Simulation of the Twin Lake Tracer Test
The 1983 Twin Lake tracer test was simulated using a three-dimensional finite element model. The model was calibrated comparing calculated and measured piezometric heads as well as vertical...

Real-Time Forecast and Its Use for Bradley Lake Project
A forecast model was developed to assist the project operator to make a realistic prediction of lake inflow and to optimize the water usage in Bradley Lake which has an active storage...

Streamflow Forecasting for the Bradley Lake Project
The National Weather Service (NWS) uses a suite of software called NWS River Forecast System (NWSRFS) for operational river stage and streamflow forecasting. NWSRFS is a modular system...

Ground Water Management in the Salt Lake Valley, Salt Lake County, Utah
The perfected and approved water right applications in Salt Lake Valley could potentially withdraw from the principal aquifer a quantity of water far greater than the annual recharge....

Ground Water Management for Wellhead Protection in a Confined to Semiconfined Aquifer, Salt Lake County, Utah
The 1986 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) established the first nation-wide program to protect ground water resources used for public water supplies. The SDWA seeks to...

Effect of Agricultural Drainage on Water Quality in the Great Lakes and Cornbelt States
The soils and the climate of the Great Lakes and Cornbelt states dictate that drainage is required to carry out economically viable farming activities. When drained, the soils are very...
