"Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Challenging Environments: Earth & Space 2004" is the Proceedings of the Ninth Biennial Conference organized by the Aerospace Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The conference was held in League City/Houston, Texas, from March 7-10, 2004. Conference attendees addressed technology challenges relevant to Space, Earth, and other planetary bodies including the Moon and Mars. The goal was to create a multidisciplinary program with a dynamism that would encourage technology transfer between those conducting research and development work in Space and on Earth and those practicing in civil engineering and aerospace disciplines. Included in the Proceedings are 139 papers from academia, aerospace and civil engineering industries, and leading government agencies; the papers address the challenges facing today's aerospace and civil engineering industry and the technology needed for future generations. Topics covered include: Lunar and Martian Exploration and Development; New Frontiers in Technology; Life Support Systems; Structures and Materials; Engineering and Architecture in Extreme Environments; Advanced Space Systems; Field Sensing and Robotics; Space Engineering, Construction, and Architecture; Space Exploration and Transportation; Advanced Technologies for Infrastructure Monitoring; Remote Sensing, GPS and GIS; and Space-Based Water Resources, Hydroclimatology and Hydrometeorology.
