Drainage by Evaporation for Soil Salinity Control

Evaporation at the Surface of Permeable Pavement and Its Impacts on the Urban Thermal Environment

Dormant Season Evaporation: Challenges to the Current Models
Dormant season evaporation is a critical component of the hydrologic balance and can be considered as the winter period or the time in which there is not a crop actively growing. It is...

Drainage Ponds and Demonstration Wetlands
In California's southern San Joaquin Valley, subsurface irrigation drainage pumped into shallow evaporation ponds often contains elevated concentrations of selenium. The selenium...

Evaluation of Dormant Season Evapotranspiration
Water use during the dormant season is often considered to be insignificant in terms of the total water balance. Evapotranspiration was measured over three fields with different crop covers...

Bird Use of an Evaporation Basin and a Mitigation Wetland
A 58-ha freshwater wetland was constructed to mitigate for decreased avian reproductive success and survivorship caused by a 296-ha selenium contaminated evaporation basin. To decrease...

A Three Dimensional Oil Spill Model
This paper reports the development and testing of a comprehensive three-dimensional oil spill model. At present time, the model components include advection and turbulent diffusion, vertical...

Southern San Joaquin Drainage Water Management
This paper addresses management of subsurface saline drainage water in a closed basin in the Southern San Joaquin Valley. A large number of ponds have been constructed to evaporate saline...

Nongrowing Season Evaporation in Northern Utah
Dormant season evaporation is a critical component of the hydrologic balance and can be considered as the winter period or the time in which there is not a crop actively growing. It is...

Modeling Runoff and Baseflow with a Conceptual Model of Water Balance

Observations on the Growth of an Internal Boundary Layer with a Lidar Technique
The distribution of atmospheric water vapor across a step change in surface humidity (dry-wet) was observed by a Lidar measurement technique under neutral atmospheric stability condition....

Evaporation Ponds: What are They; Why Some Concerns
This is the first of eight papers about agricultural evaporation ponds or basins. This paper describes what evaporation ponds are and why there are some concerns about them. Evaporation...

Evaporation Pond Hydrology
Drainwater evaporation ponds are impoundment facilities designed for drainwater disposal by evaporation. In California, these ponds are typically constructed on the clay soils of the western...

Pond Biology and Food Chain Implications

Legal and Regulatory Considerations in Agricultural Drainage Water Management
The institutional and jurisdictional framework applicable to agricultural drainage limits disposal of such flows to evaporation ponds for the foreseeable future. Originally seen as an...

Alternative Drain Water Management Options
Various options are available as alternatives to the shallow, large-sized, earthen evaporation basins that are customarily constructed for disposal of agricultural drainage water in California....
