The Weathering of Spilled Crude Oil in Coastal Water Environment
A research project was conducted at the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) in order to study the long-term behaviour of spilled crude oil in the brackish water under cold and icy...

Grass Reference Measurements in Italy
In this paper, the description and the use of drainage and weighing lysimeters installed in different Italian locations are reported together with the results of the researches about the...

Evaporation and Snowmelt Estimates from Satellite Data
Satellite imagery has been used to estimate saltwater evaporation and snowmelt runoff. Water surface temperatures can be obtained from satellite thermal infrared data. Saltwater evaporation...

Overview: Steam-Water Phase Change in OTEC Systems
This paper presents an overview of the thermodynamics and the heat and mass transfer processes occurring in OTEC systems utilizing seawater as the working fluid....

A Semi-Empirical Model for an OC-OTEC Spout Flash Evaporator
A phenomenological model for the thermal-hydraulics of a spout flash evaporator is presented in this paper. The model considers the two-phase flow behavior both in the spout and in the...

Chemically Reacting Thermals with Buoyancy Reversal

Optimum Removal of Noncondensable Gases for Open Cycle OTEC System
For an open cycle OTEC system the dissolved gases in warm surface seawater are evolved in the flash evaporator. Those behave as noncondensable gases in the condenser and degrade the condensing...

Curing Time for CRCP Mixtures Based on Flexural Strength
In this paper, the effect of different curing conditions on the flexural strength is investigated, and also the minimum required period for moist curing is found. The combined effect of...

Evapotranspiration and Irrigation Water Requirements
This manual, Evapotranspiration and Irrigation Water Requirements (Manual No. 70), prepared by the Committee on Irrigation Water Requirements...

Retention of the First Inch of Runoff in Coastal Areas
More and more state agencies are requiring development to retain the first inch of runoff from impervious coverage and release this runoff only through evaporation and/or infiltration....

Roller Compacted Concrete with Marginal Aggregates
Roller compacted concrete is a technology which is vastly expanding beyond the traditional uses of pavement and dam oriented projects. Hornsby Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant required...

Methods of Evaluating Canal Transmission Losses
This paper discusses various methods presently used to evaluate transmission losses with particular emphasis on those methods used in the Bureau of Reclamation....

Canvas Covered Bellani Plate Atmometer
Crop water use information is essential for sound water management and conservation in irrigated agriculture. Many water management technologies are often inapplicable until accurate and...

Geothermal Salt Recovery From Evaporating Ponds
The water from geothermal reservoir 'Los Azufres' in Michoacan, Mexico, is characterized by its high content of chloride, silica, borum and arsenic. Due to the...

Simulation of Evaporation Ponds for Liquid Waste Disposal
A computer model for designing and simulation of evaporation ponds is developed. It is based on the principle of mass conservation for water, for the total dissolved solids (TDS), and...

Water Requirements of Mountain Meadow Vegetation
Measurements to define agricultural water consumption have been taken in the Green River Basin of Wyoming throughout the summers of 1983 and 1984. The weekly measurements included water...

Application of Water Budget to Seepage Loss Estimation
The seepage loss for the emergency cooling water spray pond has been calculated by performing a water balance study for the pond. A field test of the spray pond was performed to estimate...
