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,...

Sediment Remediation at the Unnamed Tributary to the Ottawa River
A sediment removal action was conducted in the Unnamed Tributary to the Ottawa River to address sediments containing polychlorinated biphenyls(PCBs) at concentrations up to 74,000 mg/kg....

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...

An Arbor for Art
The new $50-million, 153,000 sq ft (14,200 m²) building for the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will provide the museum with more than five times its current gallery space. The design...

Larger Foraminifers as Contributors to Carbonate Beach Sands
Larger foraminifers are locally significant contributors to tropical carbonate sediments, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region. The two major factors influencing foraminiferal production...

Amino Acid Geochronology Applied to the Dating of Eolianites on San Salvador Island, Bahamas
Using amino acid racemization data measured on carbonate eolianite sediments, we assess the ability of amino acid geochronology to distringuish among several stratigraphic units on San...

Testing a Multi-Tiered Stress-Gradient Model for Risk Assessment Using Sediment Constituents from Coral Reef Environments
Coral reefs are threatened worldwide by stresses ranging from local to global in extent. Local stresses range from boat/ship groundings and sewage outfalls to dredging and coastal clearing....

Turbulence, Bottom Boundary Conditions, and Sediment Transport in a Shallow Water Habitat
Field experiments were designed to explore the effects of vegetation on the hydrodynamics and sediment transport in Franks Tract, a shallow water habitat in the Sacramento-San Joaquin...

Sediment and Nutrient Monitoring and Modeling in Lake Tahoe Basin, California, U.S.A.
The water quality of Trout Creek, South Lake Tahoe, California is monitored to assess the system's response to stream restoration. It is the principal endeavor to conduct a systematic...

Amino Acid Geochronology Applied to the Dating of Eolianites on San Salvador Island, Bahamas
Using amino acid racemization data measured on carbonate eolianite sediments, we assess the ability of amino acid geochronology to distringuish among several stratigraphic units on San...

Effects of Wildfire on Water Supplies: A Case Study from Denver, Colorado
Wildfires can directly impact municipal water supplies by increasing a watersheds susceptibility to erosion, and thereby potentially increasing the transport of sediment and organic matter...

Erosion from an Industrial Forest Road in the Ouachita Mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma
Erosion from 4 segments of a 2-year old forest road in a 740 ha basin was measured for each of 105 storms that occurred in a 3.5 year period. Two road segments were part of a mid-slope...

Design Considerations for the North Railroad Alluvial Fan Levee System in Boulder City, Nevada
This paper presents a drainage study for a flood control levee system in Boulder City, Nevada. This levee system is located below an alluvial fan watershed and was proposed to protect...

Sedimental Journey
A numerical shoreline evolution model was used to examine the shoreline changes associated with the release of 2.3 million m³ of beach-quality sediment from behind Matilija Dam in Ventura...

Piece by Piece
The Lions' Gate Suspension Bridge, a landmark structure in Vancouver, British Columbia, marks the entrance to one of the busiest harbors on the west coast of North America....

A New Skew
Most bridges that cross roadways or other elements at a skewed angle are designed based on right-angle crossings with inefficient modifications. A new concept for skewed crossings is a...
