dc.description.abstractfrom the Summary, ". . .Land filling is currently the only legal "ultimate" means of waste disposal. Limitations in land space and potential problems of drinking water pollution are the major disadvantages of this disposal method. The latter may be overcome by use of pollution abatement equipment. The U.S. EPA guidelines suggest that impermeable liners be used to seal the bottoms of landfills and that leachate collection systems be installed. This pollution abatement equipment is also required by New York State Law. The effectiveness of the equipment for preventing pollution of drinking water reservoirs is still unknown, be cause it has been used for only a very short time. . ."en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThe works contained within this collection are the final products of a joint collaboration between the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SOMAS); the MASIC Library and the Preservation Department. The project was conducted during the winter through summer 2013 academic semesters, and its focus was to convert older, archival records generated by SOMAS and maintained within the University Libraries to accessible, electronic resources in support of research and learning. All works are based on the original, analog (paper) records as released by SOMAS, except where born digital only records have been loaded to the system. All works have been preserved for historic purposes, please see the Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Library for assistance in viewing the analog originals upon which this project is based.en_US
