Many states recommend the use of best management practices (BMPs) to reduce non-point source pollution that might occur during forestry practices. There are many studies that look at BMP effectiveness, but few have concentrated on...read more.
Explores the variability of phosphorus (P) concentration, load, and delivery in different hydrologic pathways at different spatiotemporal scales. Three scales of hydrologic pathways are being...read more.
This study addresses the influence of basin surface characteristics (topography, land use, and soils) on baseflow discharge in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Georgia. Stream baseflow is fed by...read more.
The tributaries of the Lower Flint River in southwest Georgia are incised into the Upper Floridan semi-confined limestone aquifer, and thus seepage of relatively old groundwater sustains baseflows and provides some influence over temperature and dissolved oxygen fluctuations. Read more.
Forty-nine states have recommendations, most commonly known as “Best Management Practices” (BMPs), for minimizing non-point pollution from forest practices. A major component of all BMP programs is the maintenance of...read more.
The Natural Conservation Service Curve Number (NRCS-CN) procedure, which predicts runoff volume from a rainfall volume, is a widely used hydrologic model because of its simplicity and convenience. However, its applicability in forecasting runoff...read more.
Green roofs, also known as vegetated roofs or roof gardens, use soil and vegetation to retain and detain precipitation on impervious roof tops. While runoff reduction is an accepted benefit of traditional green roofs, not all roofs are...read more.
Every year cities are required to submit a watershed protection plan with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division to comply with their NPDES municipal separate storm sewer system discharge permits. Read more.
Relationships between physical parameters (suspended sediment concentrations (SSC), turbidity, particle size distribution, and specific conductivity) and ecological indicators are poorly understood. Aquatic biological indicators (fish and macroinvertebrate indices) have been used to identify impacted streams. Read more.
While sewer line failures can be readily identified and corrected, other failures may be more difficult to remedy. This research examines the general problem of sewer line failures at two local creeks in Athens, Georgia: Stinky Creek, located on the University of Georgia campus, and Trail Creek, located downstream from a mixed residential and industrial zone in town. Read more.
Surface runoff is not commonly considered a problem in forests. However, massive site disturbance occurring from normal practices of logging compaction and site preparation can cause production and movement of muddy water with the potential for disruption of...read more.
The complex variable boundary-element method is routinely used to determine the complex potential, θ = φ + ¡ψ , at any position, z = x + iy, internal to the flow domain. Read more.
