  • Biological Contaminants in Indoor Environments

    The purpose of this symposium on biological contaminants in indoor environments was to develop and explore sampling and analytical protocols for microbial agents that may be commonly or uncommonly found indoors. Classes of microbial agents considered in this symposium were: • Viruses • Bacteria including, gram negative, gram positive, ...

  • Modeling Dynamic Biological Systems

    Models help us understand the nonlinear dynamics of real-world processes by using the computer to mimic the actual forces that are known or assumed to result in a system's behavior. The complexity of biological systems, from cells to ecosystems, are particularly well suited to this method because the feedback processes governing them have made it ...

  • Hydrological and Biological Responses to Forest Practices

    My original idea to reactivate the Alsea streamflow monitoring program was part of a sabbatical leave supported by the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, Inc. (NCASI) and the Department of Forest Engineering, Oregon State University (OSU). The camaraderie of George Ice and Ben Stout (NCASI) in particular made for an enjoyable leave ...

  • Heavy Metals in the Environment

    This text presents contemporary analytical techniques for the determination of heavy metals in air particles, water, soil and biological samples. It details experimental studies to reduce the occurance of disease, remediate contaminated sites and establish acceptable range of oral intakes (AROI) guidelines. ...

  • Fate of Estrogenic Compounds during Municipal Sludge Stabilization and Dewatering

    This project convened a team of experts in the fields of environmental engineering (AECOM), analytical chemistry and hydrogeology (USGS), and biological assay analysis (UA) to evaluate the occurrence and fate of estrogenic compound, and the estrogenicity of biosolids derived from wastewater treatment. Sludge and biosolids samples were collected ...
