Urban travel demand forecasting; proceedings by Virginie, 1972 Conference on Urban Travel Demand Forecasting( Book )

4 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume constitutes the record of a conference on urban travel demand forecasting held December 3-7, 1972 at Williamsburg, Virginia. Resource papers, prepared prior to the conference, served as a starting point and catalyst for six workshop sessions. The workshops viewed travel forecasting and its present deficiencies from the perspectives of the transportation options being evaluated, the broad range of social, economic, and environmental impacts that depend on traffic volumes and traffic operating conditions, and the requirements and opportunities for travel forecasting that result from considering how people make travel choices. Several speakers discussed what decision-makers want from the planning process in general and the forecasting procedure in particular and where they think deficiencies currently exist. In addition two state-of-the-art papers where presented
Soil erosion : causes and mechanisms, prevention and control : proceedings of a Conference-workshop held January 26, 1973, Washington, D.C. by Conference-Workshop on Soil Erosion( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When man disturbs or modifies the surface of the ground, the soil may erode. The effects are not confined to the site of the disturbance; sediment is washed into nearby streams, then into rivers and reservoirs, representing what most authorities call the largest single stream pollutant. Physical damages from sediment include reservoir silting and resultant loss of storage capacity; filling of harbors and navigation channels; altering of morphology and stability of stream channel systems; and clogging of drainage ditches, culverts, and underflows along highways. Sediment restricts recreational use of water and disrupts stream ecology. Ultimately, erosion and sediment are expensive problems. The report is presented in two parts. Part One contains a state-of-the-art report along with the papers that provided the basis for panel and open forum discussions held in the first session of the conference-workshop
