The Army Corps of Engineer's (ACE) Interaction with the Mission to Planet Earth Initiative
The Corps of Engineers Research and Development Directorate has identified Mission to Planet Earth Initiative as of possible interest in supporting the non-tactical missions of the Army...

Seven Legal Strategies to Cool Global Warming
The author holds that there are seven types of legal approaches which can be employed by different levels of government to cool global warming. Application of these strategies, singly...

Probability and Climatology of Droughts in the Western United States
The incidence of drought in the western United States is caused primarily by large-scale anomalies in the circulation of atmospheric, midlatitudinal, transport and the occurrence of the...

A Guideline for Determining Minimum Threshold Requiring Traffic Impact Studies
Over the years, a number of localities have developed and adopted some form of traffic impact assessment (TIA) guidelines. As part of this study, an informal survey conducted showed that...

Global Change: Geoengineering and Space Exploration
Increased concern over the effects of global climate change and depletion of the ozone layer has resulted in support for the Global Change Research Program and for the Mission to Planet...

Responding to Public Opinion About Cumulative Long-Term Risks: Analysis and Communication of Risks from Climate Change and Hazardous Waste Sites
Public reactions to cumulative, uncertain, and long-term (CULT) risks pose particular problems to risk communicators. Low-magnitude and low-probability risks (e.g., living next to a hazardous...

Climatic Change and Ensuing Risks Facing Water Resources Managers
Global climatic changes will have a significant effect on the utilization of regional water resources and will influence markedly the operation and management of water storage and delivery...

Improvements on Quantifying Pass-By Trips for Shopping Centers
Improvements to the procedures for quantifying pass-by trips (T), handling imbalanced traffic volume conditions, and collecting field pass-by trip data are suggested. A simpler model which...

Using Climate Model Output to Assess the Impacts of Climate Change on Water Resources
The use of general circulation models (GCMs) to provide climate data for regional assessments of the impacts of changing climate on water resources stretches the limits of what the models...

Implications of Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change on Two Developing Resort Islands in Thailand and Singapore
The increasing demand of coastal tourism in the East Asian Seas region has led to islands being developed into holiday resorts. The appeal of these resort islands depends on the developed...

Global Climate Change: Institutional and Policy Considerations
This paper briefly describes research in progress by the authors on the institutional and policy considerations of issues related to global climate change. The aim of the research is to...

Global Climate Change: USFWS Coastal Research
Scenarios of global climate change are still ambiguous; however, increasing sea level and atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations seem certain,...

Uncertainty in Climate Change and Drought
A series of projections of climate change were applied to a watershed model of the Delaware River basin to identify sources of uncertainty in predicting effects of climate change on drought...

Taller Tunnels
Between 1984 and 1991, Shannon & Wilson, Inc., Seattle, designed renovation programs for more than 25 mi of tunnels for four western railroads. We performed all of this work under...

Exploring CO2 Emissions Reduction Strategies
Concern for potential climate change resulting from the greenhouse effect may be the biggest factor in energy planning in the 1990s. A 20% reduction in CO2,...

Volume-Controlled Approach for Direct Measurements of Compressibility and Hydraulic Conductivity

Calculation of Three-Dimensional Turbulent Flow in Francis Turbine Runner
A numerical scheme, based on MacCormack's predictor-corrector explicit finite volume method, for solving three-dimensional weakly compressible inviscid, laminar, and turbulent...

Implications of Accelerated Sea-Level Rise on Louisiana Coastal Environments
Natural and human-induced processes have combined to produce high rates of relative sea-level rise and coastal land loss in Louisiana. This paper presents historical trends in sea-level...

Oceanic CO2 Uptake and Future Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations
The global pattern of water column inventories of bomb-produced 14C suggests that an upwelling of bomb 14C-free...

Heavy Traffic Control Measurement Techniques and Control Strategies
Advanced technologies for traffic detection for freeway control systems are described. mm-wave radar detectors are used with a correlation of vehicle reflexion patterns to acquire section...
