Sustainable Steep Vegetated Slopes Through Soil Bioengineering

Nanotechnology Takes Roots
Nanoscale particles of zero-valent iron with a trace of noble metal catalyst are punching well above their weight in the area of environmental remediation. Their ability to destroy a wide...

Examining the Alternatives
A study being conducted at the variety of locations around the country is investigating whether landfill covers made of fine soils and vegetation can be just as effective as traditional...

Changing Channels
When the strict design parameters of a correctional facility in remote Pennsylvania meant blocking a headwater stream, a team of environmental engineers rerouted the waterway 400 ft (122...
