Impact of Chemically-Induced Clay Transport and Deposition on the Hydraulic Conductivity of a Natural Sand
The purpose of this paper is to understand in part the dynamic impact of surfactants on hydraulic conductivity for designing enhanced pump and treat operations. This paper has two aims:...

Nanotechnology Takes Roots
Nanoscale particles of zero-valent iron with a trace of noble metal catalyst are punching well above their weight in the area of environmental remediation. Their ability to destroy a wide...

Technology: Nanoparticles Help Cut Groundwater Cleanup Costs

Application of a SonTek Argonaut Side-Looking (SL) Doppler Flow Meter for Measuring Discharge on the Southern Leg of the Parana' River at the Entrance to the Itaipu Binacional Reservoir, Parana', Brasil
Index-velocity and water level data collected with a SonTek Argonaut Side-Looking (SL) Doppler Flow Meter and channel cross-sectional area data were used to compute total discharge on...

Calibration of Water-Velocity Meters
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as part of its responsibility to appraise the quantity of water resources in the United States, maintains facilities for the calibration of water-velocity...

The Determination of Velocity Spectra and Dissipation by Direct and Indirect Means using Second-Order Accurate PIV
In this paper we present a 2 nd order accurate technique in space (following Wereley & Meinhart's (2001) extension of Cowen & Monismith's (1997) dynamic sub-window PIV...
