Improved native grasses and establishment methods for use on military training lands by A. J Palazzo( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this project was to develop more wear-resistant plants and evaluate the relationships between military training and plant injury, regrowth, and wear-resistance. Through plant breeding, we were able to improve traits related to resiliency and establishment in introduced and native species of rangeland grasses. We selected for early spring growth, increased seedling vigor, improved tiller and rhizome development after disturbance, and resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses. Our improved plant materials will be ecologically compatible at the military sites because they were developed from collections of species native to or previously seeded at these sites. We made advances in relating molecular markers to plant characteristics and in using DNA fingerprinting techniques to characterize genetic diversity. We used markers to identify species and plants that can grow better at low temperatures. We now have the tools to assess the genetic differences and similarities in commercial and natural seed sources, enabling land managers to select seed sources that will ensure genetic compatibility with existing populations. Our tank traffic studies showed that naturalized, introduced species are more tolerant and recover more rapidly under repeated tracking than native plants. However, two improved native species, western wheatgrass and Snake River wheatgrass, showed promise as stabilization species because of their ability to colonize damaged areas. Our studies on what we call "ecological bridges" confirm that we can select seed mixtures that will establish more rapidly than all-native mixes and will ultimately lead to healthy and persistent stands of native plants. The species in the seed mixtures and the equipment needed are readily available, and the seeding can be done in one application, thus saving money. Our improved germplasm will make these seeding mixes even more desirable

Eagle River Flats Remediation Project comprehensive bibliography, 1998 to 2003 by Michael R Walsh( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

White phosphorus (WP) has been implicated in the deaths of thousands of waterfowl annually at Eagle River Flats (ERF), an estuarine salt marsh located on Fort Richardson near Anchorage, Alaska. The source of WP contamination at ERF was the firing of WP-containing munitions into the area by the U.S. military. WP is a well known toxicant and is lethal to a wide range of species. However, WP contamination at ERF is the first documented case of a U.S. Army munitions impact area contaminated with WP particles. This has led to the designation of ERF as a Superfund site by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Army must follow the guidelines of remediation set by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Numerous studies have been conducted to better characterize the nature and the extent of WP contamination, and treatability studies for remediation processes are currently being implemented. This comprehensive bibliography provides all publications related to WF contamination remediation project at Eagle River Flats through 2003

Periodic inspections of Kahului and Laupahoehoe breakwaters, Hawaii : armor unit monitoring for period 1992/93-2001 by Robert R Bottin( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected coastal navigation structures are periodically monitored under the "Periodic Inspections" Work Unit of the monitoring Completed Navigation Projects Program. Such monitoring is done to gain an understanding of the long-term structural response of unique structures to their environment. Periodic data sets are used to improve knowledge in design, construction, and maintenance of both existing and propose coastal navigation projects. The Kahului Harbor breakwaters and the Laupahoehoe boat-launching facility breakwater, HI, were nominated for periodic monitoring by the U.S. Army Engineer District, Honolulu. The positions of the above-water, concrete armor units (tetrapods, tribars, and/or dolosse photogrammetric analysis. The structures were revisited in 2001 to determine changes that had occurred. Results indicated that some armor units had moved along the seaward quadrant of the head of the Kahului east breakwater. These units were intact, however, and are still functional. Armor unit movements on the Kahului west breakwater and the Laupahoehoe breakwater were minimal. A detailed inventory of broken armor units on these structures was obtained. The sites will be revisited in the future and the long-term structural response of the structures to their environment will continued to be tracked. These data sets will facilitate engineering decisions concerning whether or not closed surveillance and/or repair of the breakwaters might be required to reduce their chances of failing catastrophically. The periodic inspection methods developed and validated for the Hawaii breakwaters may also be used to gain insight into other Corps structures
Navigation conditions in lower lock approach of Ice Harbor Lock and Dam, Snake River, Washington by Howard Park( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Possible construction of facilities to improve passage of juvenile and adult migratory fish at Ice Harbor Lock and Dam on the Snake River, Washington, caused concern over the impacts to navigation especially in the lower lock approach. A 1:55-scale physical model of the project was used to help identify these impacts. Navigation conditions in the lower lock approach were determined for various discharges and barge configurations of rock dikes placed in the lower lock approach. The study revealed that the installation flow deflectors at Ice Harbor Dam caused adverse impacts to navigation in the lower lock approach. An intense eddy formed near the downstream guard wall, and the angle magnitude of the crosscurrent in the lower lock approach were larger than those with the no-deflector conditions. Several alternatives included the placement of four, 40-ft-diam circular cells, 120-ft on center, located downstream, parallel, and riverward of the lower guard wall
Salinity changes in Pontchartrain Basin Estuary, Louisiana, resulting from Mississippi River-Gulf outlet partial closure plans with width reduction( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet (MRGO) consists of a ship channel 36 ft deep and 500 ft wide, extending approximately 76 miles from the juncture of the Inner Harbor Navigation Channel and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in New Orleans, LA, to the -38 mlw (mean low water) -ft contour in the Gulf of Mexico, The purpose of the MRGO is to provide a deep-draft channel to the Port of New Orleans Inner Harbor Facilities. Since the MRGO's completion in January 1968, saltwater flux from the MRGO through direct connections to Lake Borgne and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway has contributed to an increase in the salinity concentration of the lakes and Biloxi Marshes. This report presents the results of a numerical mode investigation used to predict average salinity changes that will occur in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin as a result of varying levels of depth and width closure of the MRGO below Lake Borgne. This report follows a previous study, ERDC/CHL TR-01-14, that modeled depth closure alone, which produced very low changes in salinity

Study of navigation channel feasibility, Willapa Bay, Washington by Nicholas C Kraus( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report represents results of Phase II of a study performed for the U.S. Army Engineer District, Seattle, to determine the technical feasibility of maintaining a reliable bar or entrance navigation channel into Willapa Bay, Washington. The study was authorized by the Seattle District in cooperation with the Port of Willapa Harbor under a Partnering Agreement. The Phase I study was an intensive effort to understand the physical processes at the study site, collect data, and establish numerical simulation models of the waves and currents at the entrance. Numerous alternatives for creating and maintaining the most reliable entrance channel were also identified and screened. The Phase II study describes the results of ongoing monitoring of the existing natural navigation channel, changes in bathymetry, and refinements to the numerical models. Also included is an application of the monitoring and modeling technology to the entrance channel leading from Willapa Bay to Bay Center, a small fishing harbor. The entrance area of this shallow-draft navigation channel served as a convenient surrogate for improving the predictive technology, as well as advancing understanding of sediment transport processes in the bay and the deep Willapa Bay entrance channel
UV-VIS spectroscopy of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene-hydroxide reaction : [final report] by Deborah R Felt( Book )

3 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. Due to the adverse effects of explosives on humans and other natural receptors, a low cost means of decontaminating these areas of contamination is needed. Base-induced transformation of explosives has shown promise as a rapid, low cost, and minimally resource-intensive technology for detoxifying explosives in soil and water. In order to understand the reaction mechanism, a reaction mixture of 2:1:1 (water:2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT):1 N KOH) was analyzed by UV/VIS spectrometry from 190 to 1,100 nm. Time course measurements were conducted at 25, 20, 15, and 12 degrees 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 were tested against the abstract vectors. Two possible reaction mechanisms were suggested and tested to explain the spectral data
