Risk-Based Corrective Measures for Waste Management Facility Closure
(No paper) In the past several years, risked-based corrective measure has been gradually accepted by federal and state agencies as a standard practice for site remediation or site closure....

Estimation of Peak Flood Discharge for Halilrood Basin, Iran
The peak flood discharge from catchments is one of important information needed for the planning of the water resources projects. In many cases long term data of annual runoff are not...

Practical Applications of Gage-Adjusted Radar–Rainfall Estimates
(no paper) It is radar's estimates of rainfall at a specific location that tends to disappoint. On the other hand, the strength of rain gage observations is in estimating rainfall at a...

Adjustments to Short-Term Hydrologic Forecasts for Conceptual Models of Hydrologic Processes
(No paper) Real-time forecasting of streamflows is amorphous and multi-dimensional. Weather forecasts, which are synonymous in popular culture with uncertainty, are just one component...

Long-Term Streamflow Forecasting
(No paper) Technology is creating major impacts on water management decisions dynamics. Today emerging technologies, such as satellite rely of hydrological and meteorological data, improvement...

Rising Water and Nitrate Levels within an Alluvial Aquifer near Phoenix, Arizona
(No paper) An analysis of water level data from more than a hundred water supply wells show that water levels have been rising at a considerable rate since 1980 in some portions of the...

Catch the Wind
Wind turbines can now produce energy that is cost-competitive with other, more conventional power generation methods. The increased efficiency is due in part to the turbines'...
