Up against the Wall (available in Geoenvironmental special issue only)
A tight site in Portland, Oregon, bounded by existing roads and a light rail line and bordered by underground utilities, required project engineers to develop a new type of shoring wall...

Metal Building Systems: A New Look
The use of metal building systems in low-rise, non-residential construction under 150,000 square feet has grown from less than 50 percent in 1986 to almost 70 percent today. Such systems...

Perpetual Pilots
Because testing new processes, treatment chemicals, and operational modifications is difficult in full-scale water treatment facilities, many utilities are installing permanent pilot plants....

Leaching Models for Subsurface Pollution Assessment in Agroecosystems

Effects of Soil Layering and Interfacial Tension on Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (DNAPL) Migration in Subsurface Environments

Robust Techniques for Extension of Streamflow Records
Longer hydrological records are required for the planning of water resource systems. Sensitivity of a system is studied under various scenarios of hydrological inputs to understand its...

A Risk-Based Approach to Subsurface NORM Disposal
(No paper) Naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) has become an environmental concern for the petroleum industry. NORM scales results when naturally occurring radium co-precipitates...

A GIS-Based Interactive Decision Making Tool for Watershed Management
(No paper) BASINS—Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources, a geographical information system- (GIS-) based tool developed and released by the US EPA, provides...

Interactive Flood Response Plans: Internet/Intranet Formats with National Implications
(No paper) An effective flood response plan takes into account the needs of and utility to the end user of that plan—namely the local emergency response community. A flood response plan...
