The field of Affective Computing AC expects to narrow the communicative gap between the highly emotional human and the emotionally challenged computer by developing computational systems that recognize and respond to the affective states of the user. Affect-sensitive interfaces are being developed in number of domains, including gaming, mental health, and learning technologies. Emotions are part of human life. Recently, interest has been growing among researchers to find ways of detecting subjective information used in blogs and other online social media.
Army began looking for land to create a chemical manufacturing center. Army purchased 20, acres. The location was ideal, not only because of the proximity to the airport, but because of the geographic features of the site, it was less likely to be attacked.
The Rocky Mountain Arsenal manufactured chemical weapons including mustard gas, napalm, white phosphorus, lewisite, chlorine gas, and sarin gas. In the early s, the U. Army began to lease out its facilities to private companies to manufacture pesticides. In the early s the site was selected as a superfund site and the cleanup process began.
In the mids, wildlife, including endangered species, moved into the space and the land became a protected park. Please help improve this section by adding citations to reliable sources.

Policy[ edit ] The environmental movement began in the United States in the s. CERCLA also gave the Federal government the authority to respond to the release of life threatening hazardous materials.
Rocky Mountain Arsenal, among other post-military sites, was a top priority, establishing RMA as a superfund site. This was further exacerbated when the U. Army discovered an endangered species, the bald eagle. This led to the State of Colorado to take legal action over who has legal authority over RMA remediation efforts, payment of natural resource damages NRDsand reimbursement of costs expended for cleanup activities response costs.
It was also helpful that the location was close to Stapleton airfield, a major transportation hub.
A lateral was built off the High Line Canal to supply water to the Arsenal. Manufacturing operations[ edit ] Rocky Mountain Arsenal, south plant. The manufacture of these weapons continued until Subsequently, through the s untilRMA was used as a demilitarization site to destroy munitions and chemically related items.
Coinciding with these activities, from tothe Army leased RMA facilities to private industries for the production of pesticides. The military reserved the right to oust these companies and restart chemical weapon production in the event of a national emergency.
Deep injection well[ edit ] RMA contained a deep injection well that was constructed in The well was cased and sealed to a depth of 11, feet mwith the remaining 70 feet 21 m left as an open hole for the injection of Basin F liquids. The injected fluids had very little potential for reaching the surface or usable groundwater supply since the injection point had 11, feet m of rock above it and was sealed at the opening.
The Army discontinued use of the well in February because the fluid injection triggered a series of earthquakes in the area. Environmental issues[ edit ] Rabbit used to check for leaks at Sarin nerve gas production plant. Sincethe mission at RMA has been the remediation of the site. Contaminants[ edit ] The primary contaminants include organochloride pesticides, organophosphate pesticides, carbamate insecticides, organic solvents and feedstock chemicals used as raw products or intermediates in the manufacturing process e.
Additionally, ordnance including incendiary munitions was manufactured and tested, and asbestos and polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs were used at RMA.Hydrology & Hydraulics As hydrologic and hydraulic engineers, we have extensive experience in hydrologic investigations, bridge hydraulics, geomorphology, stable channel design, scour computations, countermeasures, flood plain analysis, and permitting.
