There was a report before the pandemic about an ocean turbine that used wave energy to produce electricity. Two guys in the pacific northwest won a competition.  Why not follow up on that? Where is the prototype? Who has invested in the award winning solution?  Competition went from 2015 to ?   ...

I managed a civil works project for a river conservancy. We had to come up with a low cost way to prevent sedimentation movement in a large incoming tributary. (we built a diversion into a new two stage constructed wetland to address the chemical issues in the urban runoff of incoming flows - if that ...

Muhammed, With the rapid changes in types of transportation, there are a variety of interesting areas that have not been researched yet.  Depending on your own personal interest, a few of the topics that might be fascinating in Peshawar . .  1. Rail system advances in this century  (electrification ...

Kaylyn, You might investigate some of the municipalities in Southern California.  The general stormwater permit from the Regional Boards to the munis supports some incentives as I understand it - talk to the planners at the City of San Diego, Encinitas, Chula Vista, National City etc. Also, give ...

Larry, Thank you for your kind words. For Oumar and others in developing nations: I have managed the restoration of river systems damaged by sand and gravel mining, dumping, homeless / drug encampments, brownfields, and paradoxically, nearby infrastructure and entering flood control channels ...

Start with UN Reporting. https://www.unenvironment.org/resources/report/unep-africa https://www.unenvironment.org/annualreport/2018/index.php Lots to explore there. Like a structural system must be complete for the building to have integrity, natural systems also work this way. When you pull one ...

Along the upper San Diego River, I built some constructed wetlands and bioswales to treat channelized (read, dirtier than usual) stormwater before they entered the larger streamcourse that has outfall downstream  in the Pacific.  The principles of using a grassy swale, or a larger, two stage process ...

Ashish and Hari, Hari, can you help us engineers in the United States understand the translation of "water spout"?  Is it what we might call a natural "spring" or "Seep/spring" or perhaps run as a waterfall when the rains come or the snow melts?    I'm also interested to know the historical significance ...

​If you can reduce the velocity of the stream just above the intake, it will drop some of its sediment load - r.o.w. for a pond was suggested, deeper or wider may also accomplish the goal if you can do it without destroying your banks (consider filter fabric, interplanted rip rap).. at low flows, you ...

​Certain kinds of clay material may be helpful in keeping the dam watertight - perhaps as a transitional layer between the bottom of the reservoir and up the internal face of the dam, despite the challenges of compaction and structural integrity for the dam structure. Maintaining water without infiltration ...

Barbara, My advice is unique to the list. Find some clients. If you are a rainmaker, and identify work to go after, several of the consulting firms are likely to want to add your resume to their team and take you to interviews. Many engineers wait for someone else to provide work for their desk. Instead, ...
