In order to provide balanced overhaul capability and flexibility in the 1990's and beyond, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery Maine, a major U.S. Navy submarine and overhaul repair...

Experiments with a Terrain-Following Hydrodynamic Model for Cobscook Bay in the Gulf of Maine
A terrain-following (sigma-coordinate) hydrodynamic model with 10 vertical levels and horizontal resolution of 225 m on a 70×60 grid has been applied to Cobscook Bay, located in the eastern...

The Thermal Regime Surrounding a Longitudinal Edge Drain
Newton Airfield in Jackman, Maine, was constructed in 1986 to perform as a drained pavement system. The drainage design consisted of a permeable base course with a longitudinal edge drain...

Building a Regional Consensus for Ecosystem Management: The Gulf of Maine Experience

Controlling Nitrogen Loading to Coastal Waters
Of the countless contaminants that reach coastal waters, nitrogen is one of the most problematic and least regulated. There is ample evidence that many coastal embayments are overwhelmed...

How the Office of Hydropower Licensing Resolved Seven Recent Relicensing Disputes
In May 1989, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) issued relicensing regulations in Order No. 513 to (1) help licensees whose hydropower licenses were about to expire...

Using Project Management Techniques in Hydro-Relicensing
To answer a pressing need for managing today's complex process and requirements of hydro relicensing, Central Maine Power Company (CMP) has applied the principles of project management,...

Environmental and Hydraulic Considerations in the Design of a Circulating Water Cooling System
Environmental considerations play an important part in the design of a condenser cooling system. A once-through system may require assessment of a combination of events to determine the...

Wave-Current Interaction at Wells Inlet, Maine
Wells Inlet is a jettied waterway along the southern coast of Maine. Since its initial structuring and dredging for harborage, the inlet has been plagued by severe shoaling. The jetties...

Sensitivity of Gulf of Maine Tide Model to Depth
A 2-D tide model of the Gulf of Maine failed to produce accuracies necessary for the de-tiding of Geosat satellite data. A subsequent sensitivity analysis indicated that the model was...

Design of a Lined Landfill on Compressible Clays
In mid-August, 1989, a 500,000m3 landslide occurred at a commercially operated landfill in central Maine. The landslide material consisted of municipal...
