Numerical Simulation of Flow Generated by Local Density Perturbation in Stratified Medium

Sedimentology of a Composite Inner-Shelf Sand Body Resulting from the Resuspension of Nearshore Sediment by Episodic, Storm-Generated Currents: Oceanside, California

Routing a Cold Water Release Through TVA Reservoirs to Control Intake Temperatures at a Power Plant
A volume of cold water was routed some 160 miles through the TVA reservoir system to keep a nuclear plant intake temperature within safety limits. Mathematical modeling of the operation...

Effects on Reservoir Water Quality Caused by Changes in Inflow Plume Hydrodynamics
In this paper, the effects of environmental changes on the hydrodynamic behavior of the Las Vegas Wash inflow into Lake Mead are discussed from the view-point of water quality. It is hypothesized...

Initiation of Density Currents in Diverging Channels: Comparison of Field and Laboratory Data
The transition from free surface channel flow to a submerged density current has been investigated in the laboratory. A set of field data has been collected at a wastewater effluent site....

An Alternate Theory of Density Current Propagation
Density current propagation has been previously analyzed by employing a one-dimensional momentum balance in a frame of reference moving with the density current head. Experimental data...

Interfacial Instabilities Associated with Density Currents
Three-dimensional behavior of density currents flowing down a sloping surface has been analytically and experimentally investigated. Attention has been given to the presence of interfacial...

Entrainment of Bed Sediment by Density Underflows
The erosion caused by a density-driven underflow has been studied experimentally. The observations indicate that a strong density current can entrain substantial amounts of bed sediment....

Importance of Density Gradient Terms in Estuaries
In estuaries classified as well-mixed or unstratified, two-dimensional depth averaged models have often been applied with the density considered as constant. Calculations, based on measured...

Predicting Tidal Currents in San Francisco Bay Using a Spectral Model
This paper describes the formulation of a spectral (or frequency based) model which solves the linearized shallow water equations. To account for highly variable basin bathymetry, spectral...

Density Currents and Their Application in Hydraulic Engineering: Task Committee Progress Report
The Task Committee on Density Currents and Their Applications in Hydraulic Engineering operates under the Technical Committee on Hydrologic Transport and Dispersion. The Task Committee...

Slopes and Densities of Hydraulically Placed Sands

Downhole Nuclear Density Logging in Sand Tailings

The Importance of Large Landsat Data Sets for Isolating Sediment Resuspension Processes
An optical density analysis of Landsat film transparencies would show spatial variations of suspended sediment concentrations. The residual optical density profile inversely shows above...

Protecting the Reservation Environment Under the Coastal Zone Management Act
Current federal law and practice does not provide direction for the development of Indian tribal coastal zone management programs. The relationship between state, federal and tribal governments...

An Observational Model of Far-Field Transport
Accurate numerical simulation of the transport and fate of constituents in coastal waters is made difficult by the general inability to adequately specify open-water boundary conditions...

A Survey of Selected Arctic Petroleum Drilling Locations in the Alaskan Coastal Arctic Region (abstract)
There exists in the central coastal region of arctic Alaska, a number of drill site locations which were used to explore for oil and gas in the 1960's and 1970's....

Forecasting Currents in Coastal Waters
A service for current and temperature forecasts has been developed for the coastal waters along the west coast casts has led to several improvements. Future modeling efforts are expected...
