This paper presents the major findings of a study to develop a system design for the implementation of an electronic network which uses personal computers in local highway maintenance...

Design Considerations Associated with Bioretention Practices
This paper presents the design requirements of bioretention practices. Bioretention is a stormwater management practice using a combination of retention, native terrestrial vegetation...

Effects of Reservoir Management on Establishment of Riparian and Wetland Vegetation in Northeastern Washington
The effects of various reservoir pool management scenarios on the establishment of riparian and wetland vegetation in arid regions of the Pacific Northwest are discussed. This study quantifies...

Towards a `Simple' Long Term Evaluation of HSGT
The author examines, analyzes, and pursues the roots of several fundamental economic and related theories and techniques commonly used to determine technological performance, its measurement...

Are Landscape Patterns Related to Marsh Loss Processes?
Marsh loss that occurs in Louisiana is seldom associated with shoreline erosion of lakes and bayous; instead, marshes break up internally. Marsh loss is attributed to processes that stress...

Using GIS to Monitor Wetlands Loss/Gain
This paper represents the work being done at the National Wetlands Research Center (NWRC) for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) to monitor wetland change in the Mississippi River...

Traffic and Lead Pollution on Lake Maracaibo's Western Coast
This project focused on Nerium Oleander (NO) (Berberia), an ornamental plant. Chemical analyses (acid digestion and atomic absorption spectrophotometry) of the plant's tissue and the soil...

Effects of Surface Brine Disposal on the Marshes in Coastal Louisiana
In 1986, more than 1 billion barrels of brine were disposed of in Coastal Louisiana. Disposal of brine into surface water body is economically practical but environmentally detrimental....

Accelerating and Evaluating the Development of Restored and Constructed Seagrass Ecosystems
Seagrass beds from one of the most productive ecosystems in the world (Zieman and Wetzel 1980). NOAA often recommends that unavoidable impacts to these highly productive systems be mitigated...

Coastal Restoration: Louisiana's Saving Grace
Louisiana loses an estimated sixty-five square kilometers of coastal wetlands per year. In response to this loss, the Coastal Restoration Division of the Louisiana Department of Natural...

Recovery of Vegetation of Barrier Island Washover Zones
Barrier islands are prime examples of disturbance dominated ecosystems. They are formed, shaped, and moved by hurricanes. During storms overwash uproots large expanses of vegetation and...

Application of Acoustic Hydrosurvey Technology to the Mapping of Eelgrass (Zostera marina) Distribution in Humboldt Bay, California
Acoustic hydrosurvey technology provides an efficient and accurate means of surveying the distribution of submerged aquatic vegetation under some circumstances. The San Francisco District,...

Nutrients in the Gulf of Mexico
Excess nutrients in the Gulf of Mexico are related to at least three important environmental problems: episodic oxygen depletion, sea grass decline, and shifts in composition of biological...

Distribution of Chlorophyll-a and Influence factors in Dapengao
The Present Paper majority describes the distribution and annual variational characteristics of the content of chlorophyll - a in the waters of Dapengao, Daya Bay of Guangdong Province....

Selection of Superior Planting Stocks and Development of Regeneration Techniques for Coastal Restoration: A Pilot Study
There is an increasing demand in the U.S. for wetland plants to be used for marsh restoration and coastal stability projects. However, physiologically adapted wetland plants suitable for...

Vegetation Monitoring of Beach Nourishment
The Gulf Islands National Seashore portion of Perdido Key, Florida is the site of a five year project established to monitor the response of undisturbed native barrier island plant communities...

Natural Cleaning Proficiency as a Coastal Macrodescriptor
The hypothesis that coastal susceptibility to pollution increases at sublittoral sites where natural cleaning proficiency (NCP) is exceeded was tested comparing values of the pollution...
