Simulating Evapotranspiration on Semi-Arid Rangelands
Detailed simulations of the surface energy balance using the Simultaneous Heat and Water (SHAW) model were compared with measurements collected at the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed...

River Restoration Considerations Beyond Channel Design
Restoration of river systems in highly disturbed environments poses unique challenges beyond channel design. The Jordan Creek Restoration project in Idaho was conducted in a valley disturbed...

Performance of New York's Long-span Bridges
This paper is a work-in-progress report on a database on the performance of long-span bridges located in New York State and built between 1801 and 1993. Of the 68 long-span bridges - bridges...

Mountainous Precipitation Estimation Using Multivariate Statistical Analysis and Geographic Information Systems
Using rotated principal component analysis (PCA), unique, orthogonal spatial patterns of daily and monthly precipitation on a well-instrumented, mountainous watershed in Idaho (USA) were...

Polyacrylamide Decreases Furrow Erosion
Erosion from furrow irrigated land is a serious problem in southern Idaho and several other areas. Polyacrylamide, a very long chain polymer, increases aggregate stability and flocculates...

Comparing Bowen Ratio-Energy Balance Systems for Measuring ET
Two Bowen ratio-energy balance (BREB) systems for measuring evapotranspiration (ET) under wet and dry conditions were compared. The study sites were an irrigated grass sod near Kimberly,...

Disposal of Defense Spent Fuel and HLW from the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant
Acidic high-level radioactive waste (HLW) resulting from fuel reprocessing at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant (ICPP) for the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been solidified to...

Nongrowing Season ET from Irrigated Fields
The evaporative loss of water from agricultural fields during the nongrowing season is an important component of the annual water balance of irrigated lands. This study was conducted to...

Whose Risk Is It, Anyway?
Near the now-closed Smuggler Mine in Aspen, Colo. toxic lead sits beneath the grass of area residents' yards. A major portion of soil in the area has lead above the EPA action...

Streamflow Depletions and Water Transfers in Idaho
In the state of Idaho, streamflow depletions are quantified utilizing parameters of rate of flow, total volume diverted, and volume consumptively used. This paper summarizes the engineering...

Flood Elevation Limits in the Rocky Mountains
An analysis of 77,987 station-years of streamflow-gaging station data from 3,748 stations in the Rocky Mountains indicates that there is a latitude-dependent elevation limit to substantial...
