  • Kiang, Julie E. (Julie Ega), 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Irrigated agriculture is an essential component of global food production. In many regions of the world, and Asia in particular, groundwater is a major source of irrigation water. Over-pumping of groundwater aquifers has ...
  • González Rodríguez, David, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Coastal erosion and, more generally, evolution of the beach morphology are major coastal engineering problems. Changes in beach morphology mostly occur in the nearshore region, or surf zone. They are caused by the local ...
  • Huang, Zhenhua, 1967- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, the nonlinear interaction of waves and current in water of finite depth is studied. Wind is not included. In the first part, a 2D theory for the wave effect on a turbulent current over rough or smooth bottom ...
  • Wu, Jingsong, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Demand for providing scalable distributed GIS services has been growing greatly as the Internet continues to boom. However, currently available data representations for these services are limited by a deficiency of scalability ...
  • Chen, Ying-Jui, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Wavelets and filter banks have revolutionized signal processing with their ability to process data at multiple temporal and spatial resolutions. Fundamentally, continuous-time wavelets are governed by discrete-time filter ...
  • Park, Joonsang, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    The Thin-Layer Method (TLM) is a semi-analytical technique that is efficient for wave propagation problems involving partially heterogeneous media. While the method has been used widely for horizontally stratified media, ...
  • Tajima, Yoshimitsu, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This study presents a theoretical model for predictions of near-shore hydrodynamic characteristics and the local sediment transport rate along long, straight beaches. The wave may be periodic or random, the beach may be ...
  • Akl, Sherif Adel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This dissertation investigates the stability of wellbores drilled in Ko-consolidated clays using non-linear finite element method (FEM) and effective stress soil models to characterize the behavior of clay and unconsolidated ...
  • Gong, Gavin, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Climate variability has emerged in recent decades as an important field of geoscience research. A thorough understanding of the patterns and causes of climate variability is required to predict and prepare for upcoming ...
