Methodology for quantifying wetland landscape parameters for highway right of way decisions utilizing GIS
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Wetlands are a type of habitat which forms an interface between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. A growing problem in the state of Missouri and around the nation is the loss of the natural wetlands due to the expansion ...
Development and application of vegetative buffer width modeling using geographic information systems
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
It has been widely accepted that vegetative buffers are effective in removing nonpoint source pollutants. However, problems focusing on vegetated buffers studies remain, especially in technical aspects (i.e., how to design ...
Development of solution techniques and design guidelines for equestrian trails on public lands
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Increasing equestrian use on recreational trails puts intense pressure on the environment. Horse traffic produces high stresses that can cause trail degradation such as erosion and muddiness. Much is known about causes of ...
Development of implementation methods of water quality trading policy : using the Hydrological simulation program-Fortran (HSPF)
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
The recently promulgated water quality trading (WQT) policy is an innovative approach for achieving water quality standards with flexibility and economic efficiency. The policy allows for the trading of point and nonpoint ...
GIS-based, python modeling of the spatial and temporal distribution of water on the landscape for wetlands decision making
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2020)
Wetlands provide many benefits for humans and the natural environment, but land use changes have reduced their number and areal extent. Interest has grown in examining surface water distribution both spatially and temporally, ...
Simulation and optimization of low impact development for mitigating combined sewer overflows associated with climate change
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] Modeling rainfall runoff can help to understand what is happening throughout the system, how can control of water to prevent flood, and how much the ...
