Surveying and Geodesy in the Exploration and Production of Oil and Gas

Comprehensive Leak Detection Survey and Benefit/Cost Analysis
Fort Carson, Colorado was the site of a comprehensive leak detection investigation of the potable water system with the express purpose of quantifying the benefits to be derived by a military...

Dynamic Use of Geoscience Information to Develop Scientific Understanding for a Nuclear Waste Repository
The development and safety evaluation of a nuclear waste geologic repository require a proper scientific understanding of the site response. Such scientific understanding depends on information...

Tomographic Geophysics for Better Subsurface Geologic Information
Geologic skepticism among engineers owes much of its origin to common ambigueties in geologic interpretations and the innate artistic aspects of geology and its related diciplines. Geophysical...

Rationale and Requirements for Lunar Exploration

A Survey of Lunar Construction Techniques

Remote Infrared Thermal Sensing of Sewer Voids
The question addressed by this paper is how to detect unseen problem areas in sewer systems before they give way. At present, progressive sewer administrations may use crawl crews or television...

A Travel Time Template for Water Body Field Surveys
A LOTUS 1-2-3 spreadsheet application has been developed to help plan water body surveys. The template calculates travel times between sampling stations and outputs a time schedule for...

Contributions of Satellite Imagery to Water Resource Evaluations
Satellite images may also facilitate the development and maintenance of regional Geographic Information Systems (GIS) by providing both a source of base map creation and update, as well...

Regional Traffic Assessment for Major Growth
This paper presents the methodology and findings of a major regional transportation analysis. The results of the study lead to the development of a Transportation Improvement Plan for...

Tri-County Based Travel Demand Forecasting Analyses in the Tampa Bay Area, State of Florida
This paper describes the application of the micro-computer compatible Florida Standard Urban Transportation Modeling Structure (Micro-FSUTMS) to estimate traffic volume for the purpose...

Focused Model Approach for Corridors and Subareas
A focused modeling approach utilizes calibrated model parameters and inputs from a regional model, yet allows the flexibility to quickly test land use, network and other policy alternatives....

Evaluation of Microcomputer Traffic Forecasting Models: The Michigan Experience
The paper describes results of the needs assessment for modelling software of Michigan's thirteen '3C' areas, criteria used to compare software capabilities...

Microcomputer Tools for Small Area Planning Analysis
A microcomputer software concept is presented which integrates the traffic engineering and planning functions of traffic impact studies. A collection of suggested ideas for better integration...

A Comprehensive Method for Capacity Analysis and Signal Timing Design
This paper presents a rational methodology which combines several of the most significant programs in the signalized intersection and traffic signal timing design are in a comprehensive...

A Microcomputer Package for Interrelating the Highway Capacity Manual and SOAP 84
There is some evidence that the SOAP program may replicate signalized intersection delay more realistically than the 1985 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) operational procedure for signalized...

A Practical Way of Using the 1985 HCM - Signalized Intersection Methods
The signalized intersection chapter of the 1985 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) is probably the most widely used chapter, and thereby the most significant, and yet is very complex and sometimes...

TRAF-EDIT: An Interactive Data Editor for the TRAF Simulation System
This paper describes TRAF-EDIT, an interactive data entry/editing program for the TRAF simulation system. TRAF-EDIT will provide the user with the capability of creating an input data...

The Integrated Traffic Data System
Integrated Traffic Data System (ITDS) is a microcomputer-based system designed to allow traffic engineers to store, maintain and update traffic network information in a centralized data...

Traffic Simulation at Unsignalized Intersections Using GPSS
This paper develops a simulation model, based on actual field data, that simulates the minor street left turn movement at a STOP-controlled T-intersection. This simulation model predicts...
