  • The Basics of Drainage Media Design

    In undertaking drainage design for soil-based cover systems, it’s vital to consider not just the thickness of the soil cover but also the soil cover permeability and drainage layer transmissivity. Drainage layer transmissivity is related to water flow through cover soil due to rainfall precipitation less surface runoff, soil water storage, and to a lesser extent, evapotranspiration (surface ...

  • Webinar: Linked surface and subsurface modeling

    Surface flood modeling within urbanized areas has traditionally been performed using 1-D modeling techniques, i.e. HECRAS modeling for FIRM preparations. The recent implementation of 2D surface flow modeling has allowed urbanized areas to be modeled more accurately, but lack the subsurface drainage infrastructure interface. This presentation focuses on the current modeling practice of combining ...

  • Greenland`s rising air temperatures drive ice loss at surface and beyond

    Greenland's enormous ice sheet is home to enough ice to raise sea level by about 23 feet if the entire ice sheet were to melt into surrounding waters. Though the loss of the whole ice sheet is unlikely, loss from Greenland's ice mass has already contributed in part to 20th century sea level rise of about two millimeters per year, and future melt has the potential to impact people and economies ...
