State-of-the-Art for Assessing Earthquake Hazards in the United States: Report 11, Imagery in Earthquake Analysis

Description: Partial abstract: "Recent advances in the fields of remote sensing, engineering geology, seismology, and earthquake engineering have developed a need for a systematic comprehensive review of the basic principles and methods of applying remote sensing for evaluation of earthquake hazards and seismic risk. This paper responds to this need by reviewing basic concepts, summarizing essential, state-of-the-art knowledge of theory and instrumental methods, establishing procedures evaluations, and discussing representative case histories that illustrate earthquake hazard evaluations that are based on remote sensing analysis."

Development of Nondestructive Testing Systems for in situ Evaluation of Concrete Structures

Description: Final report regarding the testing of concrete structures. Partial abstract: "The need for additional capability to nondestructively evaluate concrete in large structures is similar for both the US Army Corps of Engineers (CE) and the US Bureau of Reclamation (USBR). In view of this mutual need, the CE and the USBR entered into a cooperative program of research and development designed to increase the nondestructive testing evaluation capabilities of these two organizations, with each agency sharing the program planning and financial support."

A Technique for Quantifying Forest Stands for Management Evaluations

Description: "In this study, a system for describing the three-dimensional geometry of trees and stands is presented. The system consists of two survey instruments, a theodolite and transit, and basic triangulation principles. A spotting laser has recently been added to the system to facilitate the spotting of the tree nodes to be surveyed" (p. ix). Results show significant differences in tree productivity as a result of fertilization and changes in heights, bole diameters, etc.
