Reduction - alteration of living resources
(Galveston Bay National Estuary Program, 1990)
This article is about the reduction and alteration of living resources with an emphasis on habitat, salinity, and water quality and circulation.
Optimal water quality management for the Houston Ship Channel.
Savings can be obtained through the application of systems analysis and optimization method to water quality management problems of the Houston Ship Channel. A finite-difference, steady-state mathematical model was employed ...

Preliminary Investigation of Tracer Gas Reaeration Method for Shallow Bays
(Texas Water Resoruces Institute, 1987)
Accurate estimates of surface exchange rates for volatile pollutants in bays are needed to allow predictions of pollutant movement and retention time. The same types of estimates can be used to calculate reaeration rates. ...
Detection of Hepatitis A virus by hybridization with single-stranded RNA probes.
An improved method of dot-blot hybridization to detect hepatitis A virus (HAV) was developed with single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) probes. Radioactive and nonradioactive ssRNA probes were generated by in vitro transcription of ...
