      Ivey, Olin M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, 1997-03)
      The objective is to implement an integrated approach to EcoBasin planning, protection, and management grounded in citizen initiative and leadership. In Georgia, three projects have been developed to further this objective. ...
    • Aquifer Vulnerability in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain: Some Environmental Tracer Evidence of Recharging 

      Stone, Peter A.; Devlin, Robert J.; Moore, Jerry P. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, 1997-03)
      Detectable tritium, elevated nitrate concentration, and radiocarbon in ground water are used as tracers from the surface environment in surveys to determine the innate (i.e., physical hydrologic) vulnerability to contamination ...
