Water Resource Policies And Authorities Incorporating Sea-level Change Considerations In Civil Works Programs By Department of the Army & U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Paperback: $15.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
This circular provides United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) guidance for incorporating the direct and indirect physical effects of projected future sea-level change in managing, planning,... More > engineering, designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining USACE projects and systems of projects. Recent climate research by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts continued or accelerated global warming for the 21st Century and possibly beyond, which will cause a continued or accelerated rise in global mean sea-level. Impacts to coastal and estuarine zones caused by sea-level change must be considered in all phases of Civil Works programs.< Less

The following book is my complete unpublished dissertation on the early Cenozoic fossil mammals of western Colorado. My research discusses the influence of a changing climate on the local mammalian... More > community in the Piceance Creek Basin of Colorado across the Paleocene and Eocene Epochs. I present evidence for a significant alteration of the mammalian fauna at the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM). The book is divided into four sections; an introduction of the Piceance Creek Basin and the regional geology of Western Colorado; stratigraphic framework and carbon isotopic results; systematic paleontology of the 149 species of mammals documented, and a faunal analysis of the mammalian community through the entire stratigraphic sequence. The book includes over 500 high quality figures of fossilized dentitions that will be useful to researchers in the identification of fossil mammal species.< Less

OTREC-RR-11-24 By Miguel Figliozzi et al.
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This study investigated potential road closure travel disruption due to climate change in two Portland watersheds. We used multiple models to develop an impact assessment method. Runoff was... More > validated for 1988-2006 and used to estimate flood probability for 2020-2049. We surveyed streams at five crossings and found four bridges and roadways below the 100-year flood elevation, leading to frequent floods. Floods will become more frequent under some climate change scenarios. Vehicle miles traveled were not significantly affected by road closure, but vehicle-hours delay increased. Cost analysis is very sensitive to human fatalities or injuries and fairly insensitive to delays. This study presents a comprehensive classification of flood costs, identifies preventative measures, and makes recommendations. Results demonstrate the benefit of integrating top-down and bottom-up approaches in climate change impact assessment, and the need for spatially explicit modeling and participatory planning in flood management.< Less
