• 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 ...
    • Hydraulic Evidence For Vertical Flow From Okefenokee Swamp To The Underlying Floridan Aquifer In Southeast Georgia 

      Kitchens, Susannah; Rasmussen, Todd C. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      rapid response is observed between water level fluctuations in the Okefenokee Swamp and water levels in the underlying Floridan Aquifer. A lag of approximately one month is common, and a hydraulic diffusivity of 3.83 ...
    • Low Dioxin and Asbestos Levels in Georgia's Drinking Water 

      Fuller, Wayne R. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      The Environmental Protection Division (EPD) is researching the presence of asbestos and dioxin in Georgia's drinking water. The results of the research will be included in vulnerability assessments to determine public water ...
    • National Water-Quality Assessment Program: Environmental Distribution of Organochlorine Compounds in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin 

      Buell, Gary R.; Couch, Carol A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      The Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River basin, which drains about 20,000 square miles of Georgia, Florida, and Alabama, is one of 20 large hydrologic systems included in the first phase (1991-1996) of the U.S. Geological ...
    • Nitrogen Release from Land-applied Animal Manures 

      Cabrera, Miguel L.; Gordillo, R. M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      Animal manures are a valuable source of nitrogen (N) for crops. However, not all N in manure is available to plants. In general, manure N in inorganic form is immediately available to plants, although some inorganic N ...
    • Reservoir Hydrodynamics, Nutrients and Primary Productivity in Lake Blackshear 

      Cofer, Harland E., Jr.; Tietjen, William L.; Williams, Patti Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCarl Vinson Institute of Government, 1995-04)
      Nutrient load in the main lake is similar to that found in tributary embayments. Chlorophyll a productivity is generally lower in the main lake than in the embayments, and this is thought to result from the short hydraulic ...
