Risk and uncertainty analysis procedures for the evaluation of environmental outputs by Charles E Yoe( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecosystem restoration projects are replete with uncertainties, large and small. A major source of uncertainty in many such projects is the environmental output of the project. To estimate existing and future environmental outputs, many U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' projects rely on habitat evaluation models like the Habitat Evaluation Procedures (REP) developed by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Fish and Wildlife Service (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). REP analysis, as this process is called, relies on the estimation of the number of habitat units that exist at a site under certain environmental conditions. Habitat units are the simple product of a number of acres of habitat and a habitat suitability index that indicates the relative suitability of those acres for a particular wildlife species. The habitat suitability index is based on the mathematical manipulation of a set of habitat variables. A case study is used to illustrate the role that habitat variable measurements play in the uncertainty that attends the estimation of project outputs. The lessons learned during the course of the case study investigation can be grouped into three categories: preparation, data collection and analysis. During the preparation of the risk-based analysis several things were learned. First, it is necessary to realize that uncertainty exists, it cannot be eliminated and it is best to address it explicitly. Second, one must understand the nature of uncertainty and how to think about it. Third, the purpose of the risk analysis, to improve decision-making, must be clear to all. Fourth, the major sources of uncertainty must be identified as soon as possible. Fifth, care must be taken to assure that everyone is using the language consistently. Sixth, preparing ahead of time for the risk-based analysis is important
Annotated bibliography of vessel simulation studies used in channel design by L. Leigh Skaggs( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The information contained in this report was collected while writing IWR rept. no 86-R-2. That report was authorized to assess the shiphandling simulation capabilities of the U.S. Marine Administration, Army Corps of Engineers, and Coast Guard, as well as private facilities in the U.S. with respect to aiding the USACE in channel design and modification. In course of examining the vessel simulators, a brief annotated bibliography was compiled of each facility's channel design related reports. This bibliography provides citations and abstract to 74 reports on shiphandling simulation studies relating to channel design and/or modification. Keywords: Navigation; Channel design; Waterway configuration; Vessel manuevering performance; Validation; project costs and benefits; Computer Aided Operations Research Facility (CAORF)
Current status of cost-shared deep-draft harbor projects by L. Leigh Skaggs( )

Catalog of residential depth-damage functions used by the Army Corps of Engineers in flood damage estimation by Stuart A Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A depth-damage function is a mathematical relationship between the depth of flood water above or below the first floor of a building and the amount of damage that can be attributed to that water. The depth-damage relationship is the most important tool in the cost-benefit analysis of flood damage reduction projects. This reports presents a comprehensive catalog of residential depth-damage functions used by Corps of Engineers district offices. These damage functions include those computed from National data of flood damage records as well as those originally computed on a project-specific basis and now in general use. This catalog should help analysts who perform flood damage estimates to carefully consider existing local damage functions, and has the functions compare with depth-damage functions used by other Corps of Engineers districts
National economic development procedures manual by Inc Greeley-Polhemus Group( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this manual is to provide a description of coastal storm damage erosion prevention benefit evaluation procedures based on principles included. The U.S. Water Resources Council's Economic and Environmental Principles and Guidelines for Water and Related Land Resources Implementation Studies. The report presents selected, specific procedures for the entire process of benefit estimation and is intended for use in project feasibility planning and evaluation. It is intended to serve as a reference guide to questions posed by an economic analyst in conducting a coastal storm damage and erosion prevention benefit evaluation
