Uncertainty in Climate Change and Drought
A series of projections of climate change were applied to a watershed model of the Delaware River basin to identify sources of uncertainty in predicting effects of climate change on drought...

Effect of Choptank Watershed Drainage Project on Suspended Sediment Concentration
Between 1974 and 1982, the Soil Conservation Service, U.S.D.A. conducted a sediment concentration study on the Choptank Watershed in Caroline County, Maryland to monitor the effects of...

Model Comparisons of Oyster Recruitment in Delaware Bay
A second order particle trajectory model using surface currents from a three-dimensional model of Delaware Bay was run for a period equivalent to the larval stage of the oyster C. virginica...

Effects of Surface Drainage on Sediment Yield in Southern Delaware
Sediment surveys were conducted over a period of 16 years on two small reservoirs in the Nanticoke River basin, Delaware in order to assess the effects of watershed drainage projects on...

Discussion of a Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamic Model of the Upper Chesapeake and Delaware Bays
A time-varying three-dimensional (3-D) numerical model of the Upper Chesapeake and Delaware Bays has been developed to address the impact of deepening the Chesapeake and Delaware (C&D)...

U.S. Construction Aggregates
Crushed stone and sand and gravel are the two main sources of natural construction aggregates in the United States as well as in the world. At the beginning of the 20th century, the production...

Field Installation of Strain Gaged Geotextiles
High-strength polyester geotextiles were used in two major Corps of Engineers projects: Wilmington Harbor, Del. and New Bedford, Mass. To verify design assumptions and as part of monitoring...

Simulated Effects of Climatic Change on Runoff and Drought in the Delaware River Basin
Various projection of climatic change were applied to watershed models of the Delaware River basin. Simulations indicate that a warming could reduce annual runoff by as much as 25 percent...

Delaware's Natural Resource Damage Assessment of the Presidente Rivera Spill

Effects of Surface Drainage on Sediment Yield in Southern Delaware
Sediment surveys were conducted over a period of 16 years on two small reservoirs in the Nanticoke River basin, Delware in order to assess the effects of watershed drainage projects on...

Effects of the Presidente Rivera Oil Spill on Young-of-Year Striped Bass

Some Hydrological Impacts of Climate Change for the Delaware River Basin
To gain insight into possible impacts of climate change on water availability in the Delaware River, two models are linked. The first model is a monthly water balance model that converts...

Alternative Charge Systems for Water Supply Projects

Design and Construction of Stone Column Reinforced Cofferdams
A recent expansion of the North Carolina State Port Facility, at Wilmington, involved the use of six cellular cofferdams as earth retaining structures during dredging and final filling...

Scenarios for Land Use on Delaware Barrier Beaches
Design criteria developed from tenets of the industrial-scientific world view emphasized capital-intensive use of barrier beaches for maximum economic productivity, whereas bioregional...

Groundwater Protection—The Delaware Experience
Groundwater protection in the State of Delaware has been an evolving process requiring the planning, cooperation, and implementation of rules and regulations by several state and local...

Potential Non-Traffic Benefits from a New Highway
The State of Delaware is now in the design/build phase of a major north-south relief highway. Expedient action included an Environmental Impact Statement adequate to show that the project...

Formulating a Coastal Plain Water Quality Project
In 1988, the Soil Conservation Service in Delaware helped local sponsors prepare a detailed preauthorization planning report for water quality improvement in Indian River Bay watershed,...

Effects of Climate Change on Watershed Runoff
This paper examines forecasts of changes in watershed runoff in the Delaware River basin that result from a range of predicted effects of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2)...

Effects of Runoff Changes and Sea Level Rise on Salinity in the Delaware River Estuary
The objective of this study is to investigate changes in the spatial distribution of salt in the Delaware Estuary resulting from climate induced changes in freshwater inflows and in the...
