Plans for the Land Management System (LMS) initiative by William D Goran( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Land Management System (LMS) is an initiative of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to address technology requirements related to land and water resource management in both military and Civil Works mission areas. The purpose of LMS is to provide relevant tools and information to land and water resource managers and decisionmakers to enhance their ability to understand and communicate past, current, and potential impacts of management decisions. This report provides details of plans to design, develop, and transition LMS as an integrated computer-based capability, and to test and evaluate this capability for solving specific land and water resource management problems at field sites

Quantitative and landscape approaches to amphibian conservation by Anthony J Krzysik( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural resources and wildlife managers for Federal agency lands, including those dedicated to military training and testing missions, must make decisions at multiple scales and with implications that extend far beyond the local boundaries of the land the managers are responsible for. Although landscape management at the local level is still as important as ever, current perception for long-term ecological sustainability requires regional contexts and conservation efforts. This document contains three peer-reviewed chapters from Status and Conservation of Midwestern Amphibians, M.J. Lannoo, editor, published by the University of Iowa Press in 1998. These chapters provide quantitative guidance and landscape perspectives to military land managers. The first chapter describes a very fundamental approach to coarse-grained classification of ecosystems on a regional or continental basis and classifying taxa within the ecosystems. The second chapter provides guidance to novice and experienced field biologist for designing and implementing ecological assessment or monitoring programs, and identifies important principles and issues in experimental design, field data collection, data management, and statistical analysis. The third chapter provides an introduction to the complex and valuable technologies and applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), cartography, landscape ecology and its metrics, and spatial modeling
UV-VIS spectroscopy of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene-hydroxide reaction [final report] by Deborah R Felt( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contamination of groundwater, surface water, and soil by explosives has occurred at military sites throughout the world as a result of manufacture of explosive compounds, assembly of munitions, and deployment of explosives containing devices. As a result of the adverse effects of explosives on humans and environmental receptors, a low-cost means of decontaminating explosives and energetics contaminated areas is needed. Base-induced transformation of explosives shows promise as a rapid, low-cost technology for detoxifying explosives in soil and water. To understand the reaction mechanism, a reaction mixture of 2:1:1 (water: 100 ppm 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT): 1N KOH) was analyzed by ultraviolet-visible (UV/VIS) spectrometry from 190 to 1,100 nm. Time course measurements were conducted at 25, 20,15, and 12 C.A factor analysis program was used to analyze the spectral data. Principal component analysis indicated that six principal components explained the spectra to within experimental error, with four factors explaining the majority of the variance. Test spectral vectors for four components were developed, including TNT, two intermediates, and the final product, and tested against the abstract vectors. Two possible reaction mechanisms were suggested and tested to explain the spectral data
Site evaluation for application of fuel cell technology : Naval Hospital - Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, CA by Michael J Binder( Book )

41 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fuel cells are an environmentally clean, quiet, and a highly efficient method for generating electricity and heat from natural gas and other fuels. Researchers at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) have actively participated in the development and application of advanced fuel cell technology since fiscal year 1993 (FY93), and have selected and evaluated application sites, supervised the design and installation of fuel cells, actively monitored the operation and maintenance of fuel cells, and compiled "lessons learned" for feedback to manufacturers for 29 of 30 commercially available fuel cell power plants and their thermal interfaces installed at Department of Defense (DoD) locations. This report presents an overview of the information collected at Pine Bluff Arsenal, AR, along with a conceptual fuel cell installation layout and description of potential benefits the technology can provide at that location. Similar summaries of the site evaluation surveys for the remaining 28 sites where CERL has managed and continues to monitor fuel cell installation and operation are available in the companion volumes to this report
Roofer steep roofing inventory procedures and inspection and distress manual for asphalt shingle roofs by David M Bailey( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report gives instructions for using ROOFER procedures for establishing a steep roofing inventory and evaluating the condition of asphalt shingle roofs. ROOFER is an engineered management system designed to help facility managers more efficiently manage their roofing assets and make the best use of roof maintenance and repair dollars. This document includes the standardized information the user needs to divide steep roofs into manageable sections and collect and maintain inventory information. Visual inspection survey procedures, which include distress descriptions, severity levels, measurement criteria and photographs of shingle and flashing distresses, are presented. Procedures for distress density calculations are also provided. Roof inspectors can use this information to objectively determine condition indexes that reflect (1) the ability of the shingles and flashings to perform their function, (2) needed level of repair, and (3) waterproof integrity
Marine ice atlas for Cook Inlet, Alaska by Nathan D Mulherin( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cook Inlet, a 350-km-long estuary located in south-central Alaska, is a region of great importance to the economy of the entire state. Approximately half the population of Alaska resides near its shores, and Anchorage, at its northern end, is the state's largest city and a focus for commerce, industry, recreation, and transportation. Tidal height variations at Anchorage are the second most extreme in the world, exceeded only by those in Canada's Bay of Fundy. Cook Inlet's extreme tidal range and the shallow bathymetry produce extreme tidal currents as well. During winter the marine ice that forms in the Inlet can have a substantial impact on human activities. This report is a compilation of previously published and unpublished information on the climatic, meteorological, oceanographic, and hyrodynamic conditions that influence the marine ice cover in Cook Inlet. Biweekly maps, based on historical conditions from 1984 through 1999, are presented that show the expected concentrations and stages of development of the ice cover. These maps were produced by re-analyzing approximately 675 archived ice charts that were produced by the National Weather Service between 1984 and 1999, using ArcView TM GIS software

Military examples of coastal engineering by Robert L Wiegel( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coastal engineering is required for military ports and harbors and across-the-beach amphibious operations. Examples are given for operations during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam Conflict, one very large (Normandy, France), and some small. Examples are provided to illustrate that no two beach operations are ever the same and that the effects of nature (storms and swell even in the absence of local storms) are often as important or even more important than enemy action. Both functional and structural design for planning and operations are needed. Past military operations have required coastal data and the development of coastal science and engineering in subject areas such as tidal/current analysis, wave/surf forecasting, surf characteristic estimation (including breaker type), surf effects on amphibious craft, beach characteristic estimation (onshore and nearshore profile, sediments), wave runup and bachwash on beaches, littoral current estimation (including alongshore and rip currents), processes at harbor entrances, beach trafficability, wave diffraction at breakwaters, and wave-induced forces. Some of this is described in context with operational needs. The need for reliable coastal intelligence information is emphasized. Thirty-six illustrations and 68 references are given

Tidal inlet equilibrium area experiments, inlet laboratory investigations by William C Seabergh( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was designed to examine the relationship among channel area, tidal period, tidal prism, and maximum channel velocity. Movable-bed model experiments were run to define an equilibrium area for different tidal periods and sediments. The magnitude of the areas measured provided additional data for the relationship of the tidal prism versus minimum channel area in a size range slightly larger than previous laboratory data in the continuum to very large field inlets. These data may help define the tidal prism-minimum channel cross-sectional area relationship in the midrange channel size
