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...

Climate Change: Is Trouble Ahead for Water Engineers?
Very long range forecasts of future global warming from 2 to 5°C have been made as a result of the increase in carbon dioxide and trace gases in the atmosphere due to man's activities....

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...

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...

Structure of Coastal Upwelling on a Sloping Bottom
A large eddy simulation of coastal upwelling on a sloping bottom is carried out. The structure of the upwelling consists of a persistent primary front, a temporary secondary front which...

Short Beach Nourishment Fill Performance on an Irregular Coatline
A review of the beach nourishment fill performance literature reveals that the accepted and proven theories of beach fill performance can be categorized as either one-line models or analytic...

Numerical Modeling of Proposed Kawaihae Harbor, HI
The Kawaihae shallow-draft harbor site is located on the northwest coast of the island of Hawaii, HI. An entrance channel, turning basin, and breakwater currently exist at the harbor site....

Coupled Heat and Moisture Transport Model for Underground Climate Prediction

Performance Assessment for a High-Level Waste Repository at Yucca Mountain

An Overview of the Yucca Mountain Global/Regional Climate Modeling Program

A Description of LANDSIM and Its Uses

Hedratecture in Severe Climates
There are still vast areas of the world that are almost untouched by human activity. There is need to make access to these regions with special new structures and there is also a need...

Global Change: Geoengineering and Space Exploration
Increased concern over the effects of global climate change and depletion of the ozone layer has resulted in support for the Global Change Research Program and for the Mission to Planet...

The Army Corps of Engineer's (ACE) Interaction with the Mission to Planet Earth Initiative
The Corps of Engineers Research and Development Directorate has identified Mission to Planet Earth Initiative as of possible interest in supporting the non-tactical missions of the Army...

Space Exposed Experiment Developed for Students
Space Exposed Experiment Developed for Students (SEEDS), a cooperative endeavor of NASA Headquarters, the NASA Langley Research Center, and the George W. Park Seed Company, resulted in...

Climatic Change and Ensuing Risks Facing Water Resources Managers
Global climatic changes will have a significant effect on the utilization of regional water resources and will influence markedly the operation and management of water storage and delivery...

Responding to Public Opinion About Cumulative Long-Term Risks: Analysis and Communication of Risks from Climate Change and Hazardous Waste Sites
Public reactions to cumulative, uncertain, and long-term (CULT) risks pose particular problems to risk communicators. Low-magnitude and low-probability risks (e.g., living next to a hazardous...
