1D and 2D Methods for Modeling Floodplains under Storm Surge Conditions
This study evaluates a 1D and a 2D method for analyzing the combined effect of inland rainfall and hurricane-induced storm surge on a coastal floodplain. Horsepen Bayou near Clear Lake, southeast of Houston, Texas is ...
Impact of Surface Topography on Colloidal and Bacterial Adhesion
Although the importance of substrate surface topography in colloidal and bacterial adhesion is widely recognized, how it affects the adhesion process has been a controversial topic. In this study, the impact of surface ...
Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols in Kathmandu, New Hampshire, and Texas: Carbonaceous, Isotopic, and Water-soluble Organic Composition
To improve the understanding of aerosol composition, sources, and spatial and temporal variations, atmospheric aerosols were characterized in three locations. Ambient aerosols were characterized using 24-hour samples ...
Assessing Biological Interactions and Potential Impacts of Emerging Carbonaceous Materials to Terrestrial Organisms
This research addresses the potential ecotoxicity of two emerging carbonaceous materials: C 60 and biochar. The use of these materials is rapidly increasing, as well as their potential for widespread applications. Thus, ...
Synthesis and application of phosphonate scale inhibitor nanomaterials for oilfield scale control
In this study, several synthesis routes were adopted to prepare nanometer sized metal-phosphonate particles to expand their use in the delivery of phosphonate mineral scale inhibitors into formation porous media for oilfield ...
Strategies for the Mitigation of Oxysterol-Induced Cytotoxicity
Chronic exposure to some oxysterols might contribute to deterioration of human or environmental health. Oxysterols are both biomarkers of oxidative stress as well as mediators of its damage, and play a central role in many ...
