Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America By Sam Roberts. New York City: Grand Central Publishing, 2013

Simulating Radionuclide Transport Away from an Underground Nuclear Test: Linking Non-Isothermal Flow and Mechanistic Reactive Transport
The low-yield (0.75 kiloton) Cambric underground nuclear test situated in alluvium below the water table offers unique perspectives on radionuclide transport in groundwater. The Cambric...

Monitoring and Quantifying Rate-Limited Mass Transfer Using Geoelectrical Measurements
Non-Fickian solute-transport behavior has been observed at research and aquifer remediationsites in diverse geologic settings. Anomalous behavior such as concentration rebound, long breakthrough...

Simulation/Optimization Modeling Post-Audits
S/O models have long been used to compute optimal strategies for user-specified optimization problems. It is useful to provide a retrospective of two S/O modeling applications, and how...

Impact of Ground Water Management on the Hydropattern of Wetlands
In this paper, we examine the effect of altering the pumping rates of a large municipal well field, on the hydropattern of the near by PENSUCO wetland. A flow model developed earlier using...

Book Review: Water Follies: Groundwater Pumping and the Fate of America's Fresh Waters by Robert Glennon. Washington, D.C.: Island Press, 2002

Freight Pipelines: Past, Present and Future
Freight pipelines are a set of time-honored methods to transport solids by underground pipelines, and the technology is improving. However, for intercity and interstate freight transport...

Use of Piles and Deep Well Pumping in Slide Stabilization

Chicago's Urban Public Transportation System: Its Operations and Use by People
The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) faces a number of challenges of all kinds in its attempts to gain and keep riders. But most important is finding ways to serve and satisfy its customers....

Urban Public Transportation of Singapore
Singapore is a city state with a land area of 648 sq km and a population of 3.8 million. The total daily trips generated is about 7 million. Of these, around 5 million trips are on public...

Application of the Texas A&M University (TAMU) Dredging Cost Model to Long Distance Transport
To develop intelligent decisions about moving sediment long distances to the coast from dams, the cost becomes a major factor. The cost will be a function of many factors including cleaning...

Coastal Benefits and Impacts of Dismantling Matilija Dam
A numerical shoreline evolution model was used to examine the shoreline changes associated with the release of 2.3 million cubic meters of beach quality sediment from behind Matilija Dam....

Environmentally Friendly Transport of Reservoir Sediment for Beach Nourishment with EDDY Pump
Sand impounded behind hydroelectric, flood-control and debris dams not only diminishes the intended function of the reservoir, but also starves downstream coastline by denying natural...

The Transportation System for the New Hong Kong International Airport
The decision by the Hong Kong Government in 1989 to relocate the city airport at Kai Tak had resulted in the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken in Hong Kong in recent times....

Hong Kong's Public Transport System: Harmonizing Choice, Diversity and Urban Integration
The benefits of integrating railways with land use planning and active urban development and why this is rather successfully achieved in Hong Kong are discussed. The people of Hong Kong...

Overview of ASCE Technical Guidance Document: Management of Leachate from Sanitary Landfills

In-Well Aeration: An Alternative to Pump and Treat

Application of Linear Programming Techniques to Optimize Groundwater Withdrawals for a Pump and Treat System at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland
The U.S. Army disposed chemical agents, laboratory materials, and unexploded ordnance at the O-Field landfill from before World War II until at least the 1950s. Soil, ground water, surface...

Use of Optimization Techniques to Evaluate Ground-Water Management Strategies in the Central and West Coast Basins, Los Angeles County, California
The U.S. Geological Survey and the Water Replenishment District of Southern California are engaged in a cooperative study of the geohydrology, geochemistry, and ground-water management...

Dynamic Groundwater Remediation Design with Genetic Algorithms
In groundwater remediation design it has been shown that dynamic policies, in which the pumping strategies may vary throughout the remediation period, can result in more cost-effective...
