Monitoring coastal change is vital because a high percentage of the world’s population lives in close proximity to coastal areas. This paper examines a portion of Lake Superior’s shoreline where coastal landscape has been shaped by the introduction of 25 billion kg of stamp sand from the copper industry and subsequent dynamics associated with longshore(More)
In 1994, an outbreak of dysentery caused by Shigella dysenteriae type I resistant to all public health antibiotics in vitro occurred among rwandan refugees in Zaïre. The only active antimicrobial agent available was ciprofloxacin. It was administered to hospitalized patients in a conventional 5-day schedule. To ration the supply for the benefit of the(More)
Due to its high spatial resolution and excellent water penetration, coastal light detection and ranging (LiDAR) coupled with multispectral imaging (MSS) has great promise for resolving shoreline features in the Great Lakes. Previous investigations in Lake Superior documented a metal-rich ‘‘halo’’ around the Keweenaw Peninsula, related to past copper mining(More)
There are numerous examples of past and present mine disposal into freshwater and marine coastal bays and riverine environments. Due to its high spatial resolution and extended water penetration, coastal light detection and ranging (LiDAR), coupled with multispectral scanning (MSS), has great promise for resolving disturbed shoreline features in low(More)
