Experimental and numerical investigation of saltwater intrusion dynamics in flux-controlled groundwater systems
Sea level rise and reduction of groundwater fluxes due to changes in rainfall patterns are the two major climate change–induced hydrological variables that can severely affect saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers. In ...
Forest restoration as a strategy to mitigate climate impacts on wildfire, vegetation, and water in semiarid forests
Climate change and wildfire are interacting to drive vegetation change and potentially reduce water quantity and quality in the southwestern United States, Forest restoration is a management approach that could mitigate ...
Formation, Fate, and Impacts of Microscopic and Macroscopic Oil-Sediment Residues in Nearshore Marine Environments: A Critical Review
Crude oil that is spilled in marine environments often interacts with suspended sediments to form residues that can impact the recovery of the affected nearshore ecosystems. When spilled oil and sediment interact, they can ...
Sea level rise and inundation of island interiors: Assessing impacts of lake formation and evaporation on water resources in arid climates
Coasts of many low-lying islands will be inundated should sea level rise by 1 m by 2100 as projected, thereby decreasing water resources through aquifer salinization. A lesser known impact occurs if rising sea level elevates ...
The unconfined compression test. Collect approcimately 1200g of soil passing through the No. 4 Sieve. Add water and mix soil sample thoroughly. Weigh empty Harvard Miniature Mold and place layer of soil in mold. Compact ...
