  • Developing a Stormwater Infrastructure Geospatial Database for a Large Non-Traditional MS4 System

     ABSTRACT The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is a state agency which owns and maintains parks, conservation and watershed land, and roadways. They are regulated as a non-traditional MS4 stormwater municipality under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II program. To satisfy the ...

  • Geospatial water quality assessment system for the Sg. Buloh river basin in Malaysia

    Assessment of pollution risk requires the assimilation of spatio-temporally variable data on water quality parameters. This paper describes a GIS user-interface program coupled with a water quality index (WQI) model that was developed and built to assess water quality in the Sg. Buloh river basin. Fifty-two water sampling stations were selected for this study, and the WQI model considers ...

  • Giardiasis in the United States – an epidemiologic and geospatial analysis of county-level drinking water and sanitation data, 1993–2010

    Giardiasis is the most commonly reported intestinal parasitic infection in the United States. Outbreak investigations have implicated poorly maintained private wells, and hypothesized a role for wastewater systems in giardiasis transmission. Surveillance data consistently show geographic variability in reported giardiasis incidence. We explored county-level associations between giardiasis ...

  • Fluoride contamination mapping of groundwater in Northern India integrated with geochemical indicators and GIS

    There are many incidents of increasing fluoride concentrations observed in India's groundwater. In the present study, the fluoride content was chemically analysed and integrated with geochemical model WATEQ4F sampled from Allahabad district, Northern India, with other water quality parameters. Geospatial technique was employed to depict the spatial distribution of fluoride concentrations, ...

  • A river environment index for Korean national rivers: rationale, methods and application

    A methodology for indexing river environmental condition was developed and applied to 269 subsections of national rivers located in the Republic of Korea, based on a river management perspective. The resulting index has been called the River Environment Index (REI). To develop the methodology, a total of 32 factors related to a river's environment were initially investigated, from which ...

  • Remote sensing of soil degradation: Introduction

    In the 21st century, mapping and monitoring the occurrence of soil degradation will be an important component of successful land management. Remote sensing, with its unique ability to measure across space and time, will be an increasingly indispensible tool for assessing degradation. However, much of the recent experience and progress in using remote sensing and other geospatial technologies to ...

  • Position on Decision ‐/CP.20 Lima call for climate action and its Annex on elements for a draft negotiating text

    About one quarter of all human induced emissions come from agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU). A disproportional large part of these AFOLU emissions come from organic soils (peatlands) drained for agriculture, grazing, forestry or mining. This briefing provides recommendations to ensure that a new climate agreement provides strong incentives to reduce emissions from drained ...
