Karst-Related Sinkholes: Dynamic Compaction as an Effective Remediation Option
The paramount issue to address before constructing at sites underlain by karst topography is identification and remediation of sinkholes which exist close to the surface, and specifically...

A Historical Review of the Geotechnical Offshore Site Investigation Practice

Sonic Drilling in Support of Geotechnical Investigation and Geo-Construction

Geotechnical Considerations in Grouting Program Planning
This chapter explores geotechnical considerations in grouting program planning. Topics include: basic considerations; geotechnical investigation and geotechnical design summary; grouting...

Constitutive Models: Tools for Advanced Analysis of Geotechnical Problems

Using Numerical Analysis in Geotechnical Engineering Practice

Groundwater Flow Model Development at the Nevada Test Site
The Underground Test Area Project (UGTA) of the National Nuclear Security Administration.s Nevada Site Office is in the process of assessing and developing regulatory decision options...

Transport Model Uncertainty and Sensitivity Analysis for Groundwater Releases of Radionuclides from Subsurface Nuclear Tests
Uncertainty analysis of groundwater flow and transport models is a topic of considerable interest in the groundwater modeling communities. The Underground Test Area (UGTA) Project of the...

Groundwater Transport Modeling Using Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic
Modeling of groundwater flow and transport is inherently uncertain. The predictive capability of the model depends upon both the quantity and quality of hydrogeologic data. The introduction...

Considerations Regarding Geochemical Transformations Downstream of Subsurface Wastewater Effluent Disposal Facilities
Many suburban and rural communities use subsurface disposal in conjunction with on-site and other small decentralized systems. In addition, to reduce the impacts of wastewater treatment...

Watershed Modeling for Surface-Groundwater Interaction
Groundwater use has increased rapidly due to irrigation development in the Great Plains. This is especially true in the Republican Basin that intersects the three states of Nebraska, Kansas...

Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and Nitrogen Conversions in the Groundwater Environment
EPA's regulatory focus on concentrated animal feeding operations has historically concentrated on potential surface water impacts from direct discharges as well as nutrient-laden runoff....

Optimization of Well Placement in Groundwater Long Term Monitoring Networks
Long Term Monitoring (LTM) networks play critical roles in tracking the migration of contaminants in groundwater, evaluating the efficiency of the existing remediation techniques, and...

Optimal Resource Allocation for the Cleanup of Petroleum Contaminated Sites
Site rehabilitation is conducted in many states using a risk-based corrective action process wherein alternative remedial actions are evaluated and implemented, depending on the level...

The Need for Geotechnical Investigation
Knowledge of the subsurface conditions is needed to decide which type of foundation to use. In the discontinuous permafrost zone, some generalizations may be made about the location of...

A Knowledge-Based Decision Support System for Selection of Recharge Pond Sites for Streamflow Augmentation of Waterfowl Habitat

Fate of Nitrogen Compounds in Animal Waste Lagoons
This chapter examines the fate of nitrogen compounds in animal waste lagoons. Topics include nitrogen in animal waste lagoons; transformations and removal; and subsurface transport....

Assessment of Water Quality Monitoring Sites by an Optimization Method
Allocation of sampling sites is the initial and the most crucial step of the water quality monitoring network design and redesign process. Several different approaches have been used within...

Monitored Natural Recovery and Dredging Decision Analysis at Bellingham Bay, Washington
The Whatcom Waterway Site, located within inner Bellingham Bay, Washington consists of intertidal and subtidal aquatic lands within and adjacent to the Whatcom Waterway in Bellingham,...

Application of the NRC Framework for Evaluation of Remedial Actions at a PCB Contaminated Sediment Site
The National Research Council recently proposed that the framework of the Presidents/Congressional Commission on Risk Assessment and Risk Management be applied to the selection and implementation...
