Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization - Part Two

Module two discusses beach and dune restoration and nourishment as an important component of proper coastal system management. Construction and maintenance of the components that make up the coastal system, such as dune restoration (including dune vegetation and sand fencing) and beach nourishment, are discussed in detail, including construction techniques and costs. The variety of techniques and equipment used to construct projects is discussed at length, including locating and analyzing compatible sediment material, which includes grain size, composition, and color, both from offshore and upland areas. Finding and transporting the best sediment material for the appropriate beach and dune system is a major focal point.

Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization • Part One & Part Two

Module one discusses the components of the coastal system and explains longshore transport, tidal inlet processes, the causes of erosion and offers a variety of engineering solution to address these problems. Shoreline armoring methods (which can include a multitude of such engineering solutions as vertical sheet pile bulkheads or seawalls, revetments, geotextile structures, and other forms of armoring) are discussed, along with structural designs intended to protect the shoreline, such as groins and breakwaters. Examples of the variety of these types of structures, the materials that are used, and their application are discussed, outlining their function and potential adverse impacts as well as the benefits that they can provide.

Testing and Specifying Rolled Erosion Control Products

This technical presentation will cover the testing and specifying of Rolled Erosion Control Products based on ASTM standardized test methods. This presentation will describe and recommend test methods that should be used to evaluate Rolled Erosion Control Products for quality, uniformity, and performance. In addition, data will be presented that correlates testing of material properties to field performance characteristics. Attendees will learn of the effort by the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP) to create a nationwide system of testing requirements for Rolled Erosion Control Products, and how this effort has created a knowledge base of data derived from standardized test methods that allows end users, manufacturers, and designers to determine which Rolled Erosion Control Product is appropriate for use on any given construction site.

The Important Role of Vegetation in Stormwater Management

Vegetation is Nature’s best management practice (BMP) for controlling erosion, yet when we discuss BMPs, we are often focused on structural practices that reduce erosion and/or remove sediment. This webinar will focus on the important role that vegetation plays in stormwater management during and after construction and will present new guidance developed in Colorado that covers many fundamentals of successful revegetation and could be adapted to other regions. Dr. Earles will discuss the different hydrologic, physical and biological processes that make vegetation an effective BMP. Students will leave the webinar with a renewed appreciation for vegetation and the key role it plays in effective stormwater management.

The REVISED UNIVERSAL SOIL LOSS EQUATION (RUSLE) Version 2 - Part One

This is the first of a three part series on RUSLE Version 2. In this first module, we’ll be taking a look at the Essentials of Soil Loss Prediction. At the end of the module you’ll be able to define soil erosion and the types of soil erosion, as well as have a good understanding of the erosion process and why soilerosion is a concern. This understanding will be supported by a brief history of the prediction model and use of the erosion predictive tool. To access RUSLE2 please visit the NRCS RUSLE2 website(http://fargo.nserl.purdue.edu/RUSLE2_ftp/RUSLE2_Program_File/ ) since it also has the climate and soils data for the entire US and territories in other folders on this site. The installer file to download is: “Rusle2InstallerNRCS(2.5.2.11)b2014” This version is subject to updating from time to time, but this version is fairly current from August of 2014. The RUSLE2 installer comes with the base database for agriculture, but does have one user screen template for construction sites. Of course, you don’t get all the custom database or screen and printing enhancements for construction sites. If you are interested in full RUSLE2 training sessions please contact IECA Education at education@ieca.org or 303-640-7554. Thank You!

The REVISED UNIVERSAL SOIL LOSS EQUATION (RUSLE) Version 2 - Part One, Two & Three

In the first of a three part series on RUSLE Version 2. In this first module, we’ll be taking a look at the Essentials of Soil Loss Prediction. At the end of the module you’ll be able to define soil erosion and the types of soil erosion, as well as have a good understanding of the erosion process and why soilerosion is a concern. This understanding will be supported by a brief history of the prediction model and use of the erosion predictive tool. In the second of a three part series of the RUSLE Version 2. In this second module, we will look at the background for developing the RUSLE 2 model and how to apply it for plant development and land use. Also addressed are each factor within the equation and how to use RUSLE 2 as a planning tool. In the third of a three part series of the RUSLE Version 2. In this third and final module we explore the databases behind the model and show how RUSLE 2 software produces soil erosion estimates. Also covered in this module is everything from how the databases are organized to demonstrating the software with examples from real field data. To access RUSLE2 please visit the NRCS RUSLE2 website(http://fargo.nserl.purdue.edu/RUSLE2_ftp/RUSLE2_Program_File/ ) since it also has the climate and soils data for the entire US and territories in other folders on this site.
