This working paper gives an overview of the available global datasets on irrigated areas and an evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses. From these analyses an outline on how to develop a global irrigated area map, based on a generic methodology, is be presented. Some examples are given for the area covering India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. These countries offer a broad range of irrigated areas in different environmental settings, ranging from deserts to humid tropics.

This paper examines a small area west of Verrill Canyon on the Scotian Slope to address whether sedimentological and geomechanical features of piston cores would explain the localized occurrence of sediment failures. The seabed in the area was divided into zones of disturbed, undisturbed, and erosional areas, and six continuous acoustic reflectors were traced throughout the area from high-resolution acoustic records. Nine sediment cores, providing a composite stratigraphy of the acoustic section, are described and the relationship of the failure horizons to core lithology and physical properti

Presents a compelling portrayal of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake on the Hayward fault in the San Francisco Bay Area. All aspects of such an earthquake are covered, from the social & economic setting of the San Francisco Bay Area, through the geologic, seismologic, & earthquake engineering issues raised by such a severe earthquake in a heavily urbanized region. Also covers the emergency response & recovery aspects that would challenge the capabilities of Bay Area neighborhoods, organizations, & governments. Photos, maps & tables.
