A hydrogeomorphic classification for wetlands by Mark M Brinson( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wetlands can be classified by methods that range from the use of commonly recognized vegetation or cover types, to systems based on hydrology, geomorphology, or some combination of the two. The classification presented here is based on the hydrogeomorphic functions of wetlands. There are three basic properties that are used to provide insight into wetland functions: 1. Geomorphic setting-The three categories are depressional, riverine, and fringe. Extensive peatlands constitute a separate category because of their unique topographic and hydrologic conditions. Depressional wetlands can be open or closed to surface flows, and can be tightly or loosely connected to groundwater flows. Riverine wetlands range from those associated with steep to low gradient streams and are represented by floodplains. Fringe wetlands are sea level or lake level controlled. Peat lands normally initiate their development in depressions. If peat lands develop beyond the original depression, they can create their own unique geomorphic settings. Each of these four types roughly corresponds with limited combinations of water sources and hydrodynamic conditions
A guidebook for application of hydrogeomorphic assessments to riverine wetlands( )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report outlines an approach for assessing wetland functions in the 404 Regulatory Program as well as other regulatory, planning, and management situations. The approach includes a development and application phase. In the development phase, wetlands are classified into regional subclasses based on hydrogeomorphic factors. A functional profile is developed to describe the characteristics of the regional subclass, identify the functions that are most likely to be performed, and discuss the characteristics that influence how those functions are performed. Reference wetlands are selected to represent the range of variability exhibited by the regional subclass in the selected reference domain, and assessment models are constructed and calibrated by an interdisciplinary team based on reference standards and data from reference wetlands. Reference standards are the conditions exhibited by the undisturbed, or least disturbed, wetlands and landscapes in the reference domain. The functional indices resulting from the assessment models provide a measure of the capacity of a wetland to perform functions relative to other wetlands in the regional subclass. The application phase of the approach, or assessment procedure, includes the characterization of the wetland, assessing its functions, analyzing the results of the assessment, and applying them to a specific project. The assessment procedure can be used to compare project alternatives, determine the impacts of a proposed project, avoid and minimize impacts, determine mitigation requirements or success, as well as other applications requiring the assessment of wetland functions
Floristic index for establishing assessment standards : a case study for Northern Ohio by Barbara K Andreas( )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this report was to adapt the existing Wilhelm method (Swink and Wilhelm 1979, 1994) for evaluating the reference standard for species occurrences at reference wetlands and other vegetated habitats as a method to evaluate natural places by providing a floristic quality assessment index. This report contains a floristic checklist that is applicable to 31 counties in northern Ohio. The quality index ratings presented here are intended to both assist regional efforts to establish reference standards for species occurrence in wetlands and evaluate natural places in this region. The modem native flora of northern Ohio is composed of a mixture of taxa that became established after the melting of the last Wisconsinan ice advance, about 16,000 BP (Goldthwait 1959). The native flora of this part of glaciated Ohio resulted from (a) the northward migration of species that survived south of the glacial moraine (Delcourt and Delcourt 1981), (b) the establishment in suitable habitats of northern plants that had migrated southward into Ohio in front of the glacial advance, (c) the eastward extension of prairie plants and plants more typical of drier areas that occurred during the Xerothermic Period 8,000 - 5,000 years BP (Benninghoff 1964), and (d) the westward migration of coastal species via eastward drainage channels that formed in the St. Lawrence lowlands as the ice front retreated (Andreas 1989)

Cumulative impact analysis of wetlands using hydrologic indices by John M Nestler( )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to make informed decisions concerning cumulative impact analysis of wetlands, the Corps of Engineers Districts and other wetlands professionals need data often not directly available. Cumulative impact assessment of wetlands includes relating historic patterns of flow, derived from the stream's flow record, to changes in the watershed associated with that stream. Harmonic analysis and time-scale analysis were applied to selected stream records to ascertain their potential for describing cumulative impacts. The study area chosen included selected streams in the White River basin, Arkansas/Missouri. The Cache River received particular emphasis because a significant amount of information was readily available concerning it and its surroundings. Daily flow values were retrieved from each of the streams. Using nonlinear, harmonic analysis as well as time-scale analysis (a technique adapted from fractal geometry) to reveal the time-dependent patterns in the respective samples, the results were compared decade-by-decade to discern changes in the historic, seasonal patterns. Other streams in the White River basin were analyzed in the same manner and compared with the Cache River, noting historic changes in land use and stream regulation. The study identifies methods with the potential to differentiate historic time frames in which disruptions were likely to have occurred
Ethnicity, race, and outdoor recreation : a review of trends, policy, and research by James H Gramann( )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Differences in outdoor recreation behavior of ethnic groups has been the subject of research in the United States for more than 30 years. This report reviews the social science literature describing ethnic and racial differences in recreation and leisure behavior and summarizes the national policy context for that research. Major sections of the review included demographic trends in the ethnic and racial composition of the United States; national ethnic policy as reflected in the statutes and regulations of the United States, including two recent executive orders that are especially relevant to ethnicity, race, and outdoor recreation; a review of current research programs on ethnicity and recreation in the major Federal recreation resource management agencies; overview of major research issues in studies of ethnicity and recreation and recent applications of recreation ethnicity research to policy and program development, planning, and operations in Federal and State resource management agencies

User's guide : computer program for three-dimensional analysis of building systems (CTABS80) by Edward L Wilson( )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a user's guide for CTABS80, a computer program for the linear three-dimensional structural analysis of multistory frame and shear wall buildings subjected to static or dynamic loadings. In CTABS80, the building is idealized as an assemblage of vertical independent frame and shear wall systems interconnected by horizontal floor diaphragms which are rigid in their own plane. The frame and shear wall systems must basically be of rectangular geometry (in elevation) with vertical columns (or piers) and horizontal beams (or spandrels). However, with special modeling techniques, very complex situations may be considered. A special shear panel element is developed to enable modeling of discontinuous shear walls and shear walls with arbitrary openings. A diagonal bracing element to model braced frames (X-braced, K-braced, or eccentrically braced systems) is also presented. The column, shear panel, and diagonal formulations include the effects of bending, axial, and shear deformations. Bending and shear deformations are also included in the beam formulation; however, the effects of axial deformations are neglected. The effects of the finite dimensions of the beams and columns on the stiffness of a frame or shear wall system are automatically included
