Global Sea Level in the Past and Future Century
During the past 150 years sea level may have risen globally by, at the most, 1.1 mm/year from about 1850 to 1930-1940. There is no straightforward relation between climate and sea level....

Coastal Processes and Management of the Mahanadi River Deltaic Complex, East Coast of India
The Mahanadi river deltaic complex in the tropical climatic setting on the east coast of India has been studied with respect to geomorphology, land use/cover, coastal processes and management....

Preliminary Study on Impacts of Sea Level Rise and Response Strategies in Japan
This paper presents the outline of the study carried out by a Japanese committee on the impacts of and response options to the anticipated sea level rise and climate change induced by...

Impacts of Climate Change on Evapotranspiration and Runoff in the Tennessee River Basin
Recent climate change studies using general circulation models demonstrated the potential for a 1 to 3°C warming in North America, as well as increases in precipitation and evaporation...

A Statistical Climate Inversion Scheme and its Application in Hydrologic Impact Assessment Studies Associated with Global Climate Variability
The use of deterministic atmospheric, general circulation models (GCM's) to understand potential global climate change under doubled CO2 forcing...

Simulation of Daily Climatic Series for the Assessment of Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources
A new approach to the generation of climatic time series for studies of the impact of climate change on water resources is presented. The method adapts a current stochastic weather generator...

Spatial and Temporal Characterization of Drought
Drought is difficult to define for common understanding. Several definitions are presented. The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), the Palmer Drought Hydrologic Index (PDHI) and the...

Chaos Characteristics of Tree-Ring Series
Thirteen tree-ring series from the Salt and Verde River basins in Arizona are studied to distinguish between chaos and randomness. A chaotic moving average model that represents the time...

Estimating Runoff from Precipitation and Temperature
Increasing demands for water and the global climate change resulting from the CO2 buildup in the atmosphere require an improved evaluation of surface-water...

Watershed Simulation for Characterizing Droughts Under the Influence of Climate Change
The paper describes a model for simulating soil moisture deficit on a daily basis using historical rainfall and climatic data for the analysis of droughts. Distributed parameter hydrologic...

Comparison of Nested Models' Local-Scale Precipitation from a Three-Year Base Run and a Corresponding Doubled CO2 Run
Comparisons were made of nested model simulated precipitation from a 3-yr base run and the corresponding doubled-CO2 run for the Gunnison watershed...

Application of Distributed Parameter Watershed Model for Determining the Effects of Climate Change on Water Resources
Projected scenarios of climate change are likely to have significant effects on hydrology and water resources in the semi-arid western United States. The paper describes the application...

Nested Modeling of Watershed Precipitation
The U. S. Bureau of Reclamation's GCCRP (Global Climate Change Research Program) is concerned with the possible impacts of global change upon precipitation, environmental variables and...

Effect of Agricultural Drainage on Water Quality in the Great Lakes and Cornbelt States
The soils and the climate of the Great Lakes and Cornbelt states dictate that drainage is required to carry out economically viable farming activities. When drained, the soils are very...

The Utah Climate Center Weather Data Network
The Utah Climate Center weather data network includes 52 sophisticated, automated weather stations. Weather parameters are monitored in real-time and hourly summarized data are gathered,...

Multiquadrics in Engineering Modeling
The theory of multiquadrics (MQ) is advancing rapidly and it is usable today. When appropriate MQ can accurately interpolate for unknown values with less computational cost than Kriging....

Debris Flow & Hyperconcentrated Flow: A UK Perspective
Debris-flow activity within the UK is largely confined to upland regions and certain coastal locations. Within the uplands, debris-flow and hyperconcentrated flood waters pose a local...

Three-Dimensional Modeling of Tides and Wind-Waves
A third-generation coupled discrete numerical wave prediction model is dynamically linked to a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model. The effects of water level, currents, and bottom friction...
