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 ...
The Impact of Palustrine Wetland Loss on Flood Peaks: An Application of Distributed Hydrologic Modeling in Harris County, Texas
This study uses a distributed hydrologic model to assess the impact of wetland loss on flood peaks. There is large agreement among hydrologists that wetlands have significant flood-mitigation potential. However, the lack ...
Evaluation of fuel ethanol releases in a pilot-scale aquifer tank: Source dynamics, NAPL migration and microbial community response
Ethanol is playing a key role in current discussions on energy, agriculture, taxes and the environment. This work addresses the potential environmental impacts and behavior of subsurface fuel-ethanol releases. A continuous-flow ...
Settling characteristics of fractal aggregates
The settling velocity of aggregates found in engineered water and wastewater treatment facilities are usually assumed to follow Stokes' law. These particles, however, are typically porous and may be fractal in nature. As ...
Bacteria and fullerene: The microbial response to fullerene water suspensions
The current nanotechnology boom necessitates timely research into the health and environmental impacts of nanomaterials to enhance their eco-responsible manufacture, use, and disposal. Using the water-insoluble C60 as a ...
Effect of recirculation on the performance of a trickling filter
Abstract Not Available.
Kinetics of core material dissolution in the presence of inhibitors for application in geologic carbon sequestration
With increased attention on rising carbon dioxide levels, carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) has become a commonly proposed solution. CCS has been studied for several decades, but is being researched more and more ...
Arsenic Adsorption to N anoparticulate Magnetite in Natural Waters: Batch versus Column-Specific Effects
Increasingly, cities in Latin America recognize the importance of drinking water quality on public health. A water assessment of Guanajuato, Mexico, and surrounding areas found arsenic in wells above the Mexican drinking ...
Propagation via a Peridynamics Formulation: A Stochastic\Deterministic Perspective
Novel numerical methods for treating fractional differential and integrodifferential equations arising in non local mechanics formulations are proposed. For fractional differential equations arising in modeling oscillatory systems ...
The role of polymer flocculants in microfiltration of surface water
Polymer flocculants, traditionally used with primary coagulant to enhance flocculation and sedimentation, are used in the coagulation-/microfiltration process as well assuming they can improve membrane performance similarly. ...
