Beer's Secret Ingredient: geology
As anyone in the beer business should know, water -- and what's in the water, courtesy of the geology through which it percolates -- can make all the difference in an end...

Effects of Density on Cross-Shore Sediment Transport

The U.S. Minerals Management Service Oil Spill Research Program

Geochemical Modeling of Lead in Vadose Zone
In recent years, researchers have used multicomponent reactive transport models to study the mobility of potentially toxic heavy metals in the subsurface. In this study, such a mathematical...

Recover Inorganic Solids from Obsolete Propellants
A feasible process was developed to recover inorganic solids (energetics and metallic fuel) from obsolete polyurethane-based propellants in order to solve their associated long-term disposal...

Mechanical Response of Woven Graphite/Copper Composites

Appalachian Piedmont Regolith: Relations of Saprolite and Residual Soils to Rock-Type

Applications of Soil Nailing in Residual Soil

Estimation of In Situ Hydraulic Properties of Saprolite

Friction Characteristics of Cohesionless Soil Penetrated by Polymer and Mineral Slurries

Amphibole in Quaternary Basalts of the Yucca Mountain Region: Significance to Volcanism Models

Eolian-Deposited Minerals Around Drill Hole USW SD-9, Yucca Mountain, Nevada

Sorption of Radionuclides at Tracer Level on Mineral Colloids

Behavior of Bolted Joints in 3-D Braided Composites
As composites are used more as replacements for metals in space structures, the question arises as to the most efficient way to join the components. Mechanical fasteners are a common joining...

JSC-1: A New Lunar Soil Simulant
A new lunar soil simulant, JSC-1, has been developed and characterized under the auspices of the NASA Johnson Space Center. This simulant was produced in large quantities to satisfy the...

Mineral Liberation and Beneficiation of Lunar High-Ti Mare Basalt, 71055: Digital-Imaging Analyses
Knowledge of the abundance of various lunar minerals and the ability to effectively beneficiate thee minerals are important requirements for effective utilization of lunar resources. SEM/EMP...

A Remote Sensing Evaluation of Lunar Pyroclastic Deposits

An Ultra-Lightweight Advanced Technology Telescope for Space Applications
We propose a new type of telescope designed specifically for space and lunar applications. The optical reflecting surfaces of the telescope are made by replication onto thin ultra-lightweight...

Water Polishing by Constructed Wetland Ecosystems
This paper gives results of a five-year study of minerals and nutrients reduction in a large constructed wetland facility in Central Florida, on the periphery of Orlando. The 120 ha system...
