    • Environmental Education Program Design for Student and Adult Audiences 

      Mitchell, Sarah V. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      Environmental Education Programs have historically provided a series of activities unrelated to each other or to existing curricula, with minimal emphasis on an ecosystem approach. Any significant improvement in environmental ...
    • Erosion of Cohesive Sediments in Uniform Flow 

      Dennett, Keith E.; Sturm, Terry W.; Amirtharajah, Appiah; Mahmood, Talat (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      The erosion of cohesive sediments under conditions of uniform flow has been studied. The rate of erosion and the total mass eroded increased linearly as bed shear stress increased. These results, along with additional ...
    • Erosion of Colloids Coated With Humic Substances in Fixed and Fluidized Beds 

      Mahmood, Talat; Amirtharajah, Appiah; Sturm, Terry W.; Dennett, Keith E. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      Migration of various pollutants associated with colloidal particles has been reported by several researchers. Detachment of colloids and their associated pollutants could be controlled by hydrodynamic as well as chemical ...
    • Establishing Dynamic Equilibrium in an Urban Stream 

      Lucas, W. Drew; Ferguson, Bruce K. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      Channelization of urban streams has reduced infiltration and riparian habitat, increased flooding and isolated urban residents from natural processes. One possible way to restore environmental integrity of channeled ...
    • Ex Post Financial Analysis of the Performance of the Hartwell Reservoir Project 

      Pless, Al; Sellers, Jackie (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      Some Federal multiple purpose water projects have performed more favorably in financial terms than forecast in initial plan formulation documents. This analysis evaluates the economic and financial performance of the ...
    • Floods in Central and Southwestern Georgia in July 1994 

      Stamey, Timothy C. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      Parts of central and most of southwestern Georgia were devastated by floods resulting from rainfall produced by Tropical Storm Alberto in July 1994. Whole communities were inundated by floodwaters as numerous streams ...
