As more sites containing contaminated sediments are remedied with sediment caps, so grows the interest among site managers and engineers in the benefits afforded by active capping. While traditional sediment caps can ...
Harvesting microalgae for biofuel : processes and mechanisms
The application of microalgae for biofuel production is a subject of increasing interest as fuel prices continue to fluctuate and the United States aims to secure a reliable, domestic fuel source. Though microalgae have ...
Geospatial metadata and an ontology for water observations data
Work has been successfully performed by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) to synthesize the nation’s hydrologic data. Through the building of a national Hydrologic ...
Primary and secondary emissions from green building materials : large chamber experiments
Indoor sources of air pollution generate a large fraction of overall human exposure to airborne pollutants. Materials used in buildings have been shown to be a major contributor to indoor air pollution, with green building ...
Analysis of stormwater runoff from permeable friction course
Recently, the Texas Department of Transportation began using Permeable Friction Course (PFC), a 5 cm overlay of porous pavement that is applied over conventional pavement. PFC was initially developed because it allows ...
A two-zone model to predict inhalation exposure to toxic chemicals in cleaning products
The use of cleaning products can lead to indoor concentrations of toxic air contaminants above regulatory levels. Studies show that the use of cleaning products is related to adverse respiratory health effects in adults ...
