Assessing the vulnerability of public-supply wells to contamination: Rio Grande aquifer system in Albuquerque, New Mexico [ More info] Explains the natural and human-affected factors that determine the concentration of contaminants in groundwater, especially where the concentration is different at the surface than at depth, and where pumping varies with time.
Assessment of potential coastal impacts: Hurricane Rita [ More info] Areas susceptible to inundation during landfall of Hurricane Rita are assessed by comparing lidar-derived dune elevations to simulated storm surge values. Results shown on pictorial maps.
BRASS: Bedrock Regional Aquifer Systematics Study [ More info] Description of the project to publish new bedrock geologic maps in the United States to advance the understanding of the region's bedrock aquifers. Includes list of projects.
Borehole geophysics as applied to geohydrology [ More info] Project summary, photos of logging truck, and bibliographies on log interpretation techniques and instrumentation to record geophysical data in wells and test holes for studying ground water hydraulics and evaluate waste disposal sites.
Calculating weighted estimates of peak streamflow statistics [ More info] A method of improving our estimates of statistics used to describe flood frequency, taking into account information obtained from the stream whose flood frequency is being investigated.
Canoeing North Dakota rivers [ More info] Links to streamflow, stage, pictures, maps, river descriptions, and general information for canoeing on North Dakota's rivers. Files are in PDF format.
Characterization of Fish Creek, Teton County, Wyoming, 2004-08 [ More info] Preliminary results of hydrologic and biological sampling confirm anecdotal reports that this stream shows unusually high algal growth due to elevated nutrients, probably from groundwater.
Coastal Change During Hurricane Dennis 2005 [ More info] Summary of study to document the impact of Hurricane Dennis on Santa Rosa Island, in the Florida Panhandle.
Coastal Change During Hurricane Isabel 2003 [ More info] Summary of study to document the impact of Hurricane Isabel in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, near Cape Hatteras. Methods included pre- and post-storm photography, videography, and lidar.
