Remote Sensing and GIS for Nonpoint Source Pollution Analysis in the City of Dallas' Eastern Watersheds

Remote Sensing and GIS for Nonpoint Source Pollution Analysis in the City of Dallas' Eastern Watersheds

Date: June 1989
Creator: University of North Texas. Dept. of Biological Sciences.
Description: This report describes the findings of a study conducted on the Eastern Watersheds of Lake Lavon, Lake Ray Hubbard, Lake Tawakoni, Lake Palestine and Lake Fork, which are located within the Blackland Prairie, Post Oak Savannah and Pineywoods provinces. These watersheds are among nine that provide drinking water to Dallas, Texas. The study examines the potential benefit of "remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) for watershed management" in these five watersheds (p. iii).

Sweetpotato Diseases

Sweetpotato Diseases

Date: 1955
Creator: United States. Agricultural Research Service. Horticultural Crops Research Branch.
Description: Revised edition. There are two classes of sweet potato diseases, 1) field troubles (which are either root and stem diseases or leaf diseases), and 2) storage rots. Root and stem diseases include stem-rot, black-rot, foot-rot, scurf, and root-rot; and leaf disease, leaf-blight, white-rust, and leaf-spot. There are many methods of control for field diseases which are discussed. Control of the five storage rots described hinges on careful storage-house management.

Antarctic fact-file

Antarctic fact-file

Date: 2003
Creator: British Antactic Survey
Description: Antarctica is a continent for science. All countries working in Antarctica carry out scientific research, in a surprising range of physical and biological sciences, from the vastness of space to the minute scale of micro-organisms. Activities are regulated by the Antarctic Treaty, which has been in force since 1959 and is signed by all countries operating there. The Treaty reserves the continent for peaceful purposes, and all military and industrial activities are banned.
