Inlet Control Concepts on Catchbasins—U.S. Experience

Real Time Flood Forecasting in New Zealand
Current New Zealand real time flood forecasting research developments are described. Successful flood forecasting using a linear system transfer function technique is described. Promising...

Uncertainty of Runoff Volume as a Function of Rainfall and Catchment Characteristics
The expected variability of runoff volume due to the uncertainties in spatial distribution of rainfall and catchment characteristics is quantified. A physically-based mathematical model...

Uncertainty Estimates for Rainfall-Runoff Model
Almost all rainfall-runoff link-node models in use today involve the subdivision of the catchment into smaller areas, linked together by a system of channel links. These 'link-node'...

Water Quantity/Quality Modelling in an Overseas Situation

Hydrologic Implications of Global Warming on Water Resources in California
The possible effects of climate change on the water resources of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Basin, as predicted by general circulation models (GCM's) were evaluated...

The Sediment Problem in South Africa Reservoirs
The reservoir sedimentation problem has been studied in South Africa from 1903 onwards. A substantial capacity reduction in reservoirs located in high sediment production regions has been...

An Approach to Quality-Orientated Management of Catchment Areas with Artificial Ground Water Recharge
In the Federal Republic of Germany the artificial ground water recharge is primarily used to replenish the ground water resources for municipal drinking water supply. Only in some cases...

Rain Data Telemetry for Operation of a Hydro-Reservoir
The Collywobbles hydro-electric station operates 42MW with very little river storage. Raindata is collected from 11 gauges distributed in the 5000 km**2 catchment and telemetered to a...

Kinematic, Diffusion and Dynamic Catchment Modeling
This paper reports on a series of tests aimed at developing improved procedures for catchment routing. The objective is to compare kinematic and diffusion models within several scenarios...

Rainwater Catchment Systems: Advancements in an Appropriate Technology

A Strategy for Caribbean Water Supply Planning

Rainwater Collection and Treatment at a Small Industrial Plant in Puerto Rico

Catchment Response Models in the Computer Age
The paper deals with catchment response models and addresses the question - what do we know when we know a model? The history of catchment modelling over the last seventy five years is...

Streamflow Monitoring with Ultrasonic Recorders
In September 1983, four new streamflow monitoring sites were established in a west Chestnut Ridge catchment at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Ultrasonic level/flow recorders were used...

A Hydrologic Model Developed for Microcomputers
An event oriented hydrologic catchment model has been programmed for use on a microcomputer. Because the program is written in PASCAL, it uses features of this language that eliminate...

Modelling Percentage Runoff Values for Urban Catchments

Mapping Dispersed Urban Flooding on Alluvial Fans

Urban Hydrology Progress Since 1979 in Australia
This report highlights urban hydrological activity in Australia in the period 1979-1983, since the earlier reports by Aitken (1976) and Aitken and Laurenson (1979). The high level of interest...

Urban Hydrology and Catchment Research in the United Kingdom - Progress Since 1979
The Wallingford Procedure for the design and analysis of urban drainage systems was released in late 1981 for use by drainage engineers in the United Kingdom. This was the most significant...
