Geomorphology and quaternary geologic history of the Lower Mississippi Valley by Roger T Saucier ( )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Abstract: this comprehensive, two-volume synthesis, the first in 50 years, is aimed at a multidisciplinary audience concerned with multiple aspects of water resources engineering and natural and cultural resources management. It presents at a scale of 1:250,000 the distribution of environments of deposition as compiled from more than 30 years of detailed geologic mapping, as well as a new interpretation and delineation of the eroded suballuvial surface. A detailed interpretation of the evolution of the alluvial valley and deltaic plain is presented and illustrated by a series of 13 paleogeographic reconstructions. The chronology of valley events is based on stratigraphic relationships and radiometric age determinations but relies heavily on archeological evidence. The geologic processes and controls that affect the entire region include continental glaciations, climate, sea level variations, tectonics and diapirism, and subsidence. Both erosional and depositional landscapes are represented, and the lithology, soils, and geotechnical properties of the latter are presented in narrative and tabular form for the principal fluvial, lacustrine, eclian, deltaic, and deltaic-marine environments. Discussions of neotectonics in the region focus on the New Madrid Seismic Zone, and a section of the synthesis addresses special engineering considerations such as groundwater occurrence, mass movements, river meandering, and long-term stability."--Publisher's website

An approach for assessing wetland functions using hydrogeomorphic classification, reference wetlands, and functional indices ( )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report outlines an approach for assessing wetland functions in the 404 Regulatory Program as well as other regulatory, planning, and management situations. The approach includes a development and application phase. In the development phase, wetlands are classified into regional subclasses based on hydrogeomorphic factors. A functional profile is developed to describe the characteristics of the regional subclass, identify the functions that are most likely to be performed, and discuss the characteristics that influence how those functions are performed. Reference wetlands are selected to represent the range of variability exhibited by the regional subclass in a reference domain, and assessment models are constructed and calibrated by an interdisciplinary team based on reference standards and data from these reference wetlands. Reference standards are the conditions exhibited by the undisturbed, or least disturbed, wetlands and landscapes in the reference domain. The functional indices resulting from the assessment models provide a measure of the capacity of a wetland to perform functions relative to other wetlands in the regional subclass. The application phase of the approach, or assessment procedure, includes the characterization of the wetland, assessing its functions, analyzing the results of the assessment, and applying them to a specific project. The assessment procedure can he used to compare project alternatives, determine the impacts of a proposed project, avoid and minimize impacts, determine mitigation requirements or success, as well as other applications requiring the assessment of wetland functions
A hydrogeomorphic classification for wetlands by Mark M Brinson ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wetlands can be classified by methods that range from the use of commonly recognized vegetation or cover types, to systems based on hydrology, geomorphology, or some combination of the two. The classification presented here is based on the hydrogeomorphic functions of wetlands. There are three basic properties that are used to provide insight into wetland functions: 1. Geomorphic setting-The three categories are depressional, riverine, and fringe. Extensive peatlands constitute a separate category because of their unique topographic and hydrologic conditions. Depressional wetlands can be open or closed to surface flows, and can be tightly or loosely connected to groundwater flows. Riverine wetlands range from those associated with steep to low gradient streams and are represented by floodplains. Fringe wetlands are sea level or lake level controlled. Peat lands normally initiate their development in depressions. If peat lands develop beyond the original depression, they can create their own unique geomorphic settings. Each of these four types roughly corresponds with limited combinations of water sources and hydrodynamic conditions
Wildlife community habitat evaluation using a modified species-area relationship by Richard L Schroeder ( )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These general guidelines for developing wildlife community habitat models will provide Corps field biologists with an improved understanding of applications of the principles of community ecology. These guidelines meet the need of the field biologist under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act to prevent or mitigate for habitat impacts to wetlands by aiding in the assessment of models to evaluate wildlife community habitat value under different spatial scales. This document provides guidance on using species-area relationships to develop wildlife community habitat models. Establishing clear wildlife resource objectives is important prior to model development. Different measures of species richness can be used to meet different objectives. Species-area curves can be used independently or with either spatial or habitat modifiers. The use of spatial or habitat modifiers improves the power of the species-area relationship in predicting species richness. Limitations of using the species-area relationship include the possibility of overlooking the value of small areas for certain species and the difficulty in considering the effects of regional dynamics on species richness

Wildlife community habitat evaluation a model for deciduous palustrine forested wetlands in Maryland by Richard L Schroeder ( )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The species richness of forest interior birds, reptiles, and amphibians in deciduous palustrine forested wetlands is influenced by habitat conditions within the forest and the spatial arrangement of forest tracts within the surrounding landscape. Habitat fragmentation is a major determinant of species richness and composition in these forests. The model predicts richness from an evaluation of habitat and spatial variables, with the highest levels of richness assumed to be found in mature, unfragmented forested wetland tracts. The spatial variables in the model can be assessed with remotely sensed data and analyzed with geographic information systems software. A test of the tract portion of the model revealed positive correlations between the spatial model variables and forest interior bird richness from 18 eastern forest Breeding Bird Census plots
A guidebook for application of hydrogeomorphic assessments to riverine wetlands ( )

The report outlines an approach for assessing wetland functions in the 404 Regulatory Program as well as other regulatory, planning, and management situations. The approach includes a development and application phase. In the development phase, wetlands are classified into regional subclasses based on hydrogeomorphic factors. A functional profile is developed to describe the characteristics of the regional subclass, identify the functions that are most likely to be performed, and discuss the characteristics that influence how those functions are performed. Reference wetlands are selected to represent the range of variability exhibited by the regional subclass in the selected reference domain, and assessment models are constructed and calibrated by an interdisciplinary team based on reference standards and data from reference wetlands. Reference standards are the conditions exhibited by the undisturbed, or least disturbed, wetlands and landscapes in the reference domain. The functional indices resulting from the assessment models provide a measure of the capacity of a wetland to perform functions relative to other wetlands in the regional subclass.

Floristic index for establishing assessment standards a case study for Northern Ohio by Barbara K Andreas ( )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this report was to adapt the existing Wilhelm method (Swink and Wilhelm 1979, 1994) for evaluating the reference standard for species occurrences at reference wetlands and other vegetated habitats as a method to evaluate natural places by providing a floristic quality assessment index. This report contains a floristic checklist that is applicable to 31 counties in northern Ohio. The quality index ratings presented here are intended to both assist regional efforts to establish reference standards for species occurrence in wetlands and evaluate natural places in this region. The modem native flora of northern Ohio is composed of a mixture of taxa that became established after the melting of the last Wisconsinan ice advance, about 16,000 BP (Goldthwait 1959). The native flora of this part of glaciated Ohio resulted from (a) the northward migration of species that survived south of the glacial moraine (Delcourt and Delcourt 1981), (b) the establishment in suitable habitats of northern plants that had migrated southward into Ohio in front of the glacial advance, (c) the eastward extension of prairie plants and plants more typical of drier areas that occurred during the Xerothermic Period 8,000 - 5,000 years BP (Benninghoff 1964), and (d) the westward migration of coastal species via eastward drainage channels that formed in the St. Lawrence lowlands as the ice front retreated (Andreas 1989)

An introduction to risk and uncertainty in the evaluation of environmental investments by Charles E Yoe ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Civil Works program has historically evolved and changed to meet the changing needs and priorities of the Nation. Two relatively recent changes in the Corps' program are of particular interest in this report. They are the increased emphasis on environmental outputs of existing and new projects and the increasing use of risk and uncertainty analysis in the Corps' decision-making processes. The trends toward greater emphasis on environmental outputs and more use of risk and uncertainty analysis began at different times and for different reasons. Now, as environmental activities are routinely undertaken by planning, operations, engineering and construction divisions throughout all Corps districts and risk and uncertainty analyses have reached a level of maturity and acceptance, there is a confluence of these two trends. The national interest in risk and uncertainty analysis had its genesis in the analysis of environmental risk analysis in the late 1960s. The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is generally credited with beginning the interest in risk and uncertainty analysis. It stands to reason therefore, that now that the Corps' involvement in environmental activities is reaching a critical mass, the Corps should begin to introduce techniques of risk and uncertainty analysis into its decision process in order to improve the quality of decisions. Introducing risk and uncertainty analysis to the Corps' environmental activities is a new initiative. It will require personnel to learn a few new tricks. But the introduction of risk and uncertainty analysis to this area of endeavor will not impose new significant burdens on analysts or managers
