Understanding the Impact of Changes to Coastal Prairie Landscapes on Watershed Response and Urban Flood Mitigation: A Case Study of the Katy Prairie in Houston, Texas
Prairie landscapes are known to provide valuable ecosystem services, including floodwater retention, which have been widely studied for the Prairie Pothole Region and the Great Plains in the Midwestern United States. ...
Modeling of Mineral Scaling in a West Texas CO2-WAG EOR Field Using Produced Water Analysis and a 1-D Reactive Mixing-Material Balance Coupled Approach
With decreasing accessible oil and gas reserves, secondary and tertiary modes of EOR (enhanced oil recovery) are increasingly being used. WAG (water alternating with CO2 gas) injection for oil production alters the chemistry ...
Scaling behavior of concentrated urine membrane distillation systems for space applications
One challenge facing deep space exploration is the need to provide water with minimal input from Earth. Consequently, it is important to develop robust technology that can extract >90% of the water from urine produced by ...
Using a Distributed Hydrologic Model and Unsteady Hydraulic Model on the West Fork San Jacinto River
Spatially-distributed hydrologic models and 1D and 2D unsteady hydraulic models have successfully been used to replicate the flows and stages during flood events on creeks and bayous in the Houston area. This study applied ...
Distributed Hydrologic Modeling of Large Storm Events in the Houston-Galveston Region
In conjunction with the SSPEED Center, large rainfall events in the upper Gulf of Mexico are being studied in an effort to help design a surge gate to protect the Houston Ship Channel during hurricane events. When hurricanes ...
Evaluating a gas biosensor for the measurement of conjugative transfer in wastewater communities
Antibiotic resistance poses a threat to global public health causing simple infections to become untreatable and lead to potential fatality. Antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) can be exchanged between microorganisms via ...
