Meteorological Aspects of Drought
This is an overview paper discussing meteorological aspects of drought, and it is part of the report of the Task Committee on Water Management During Droughts. Several drought definitions...

Seven Legal Strategies to Cool Global Warming
The author holds that there are seven types of legal approaches which can be employed by different levels of government to cool global warming. Application of these strategies, singly...

Beyond Push-Button GPS
In 1993, the U.S. Air Force Space Command will complete its deployment of 24 satellites for the Global Positioning System, affording 3-dimensional positions and velocities 24 hours a day...

Global Warming and Possible Effects on the Central and Southern Florida Project
The possible impacts of global warming on the operation and management of the Central and Southern Florida Project are examined. The potential impacts include sea level rise, tropical...

Seven Legal Strategies to Cool Global Warming
There are seven types of legal approaches which can be employed by different levels of government to cool global warming. Application of these strategies, singly or in various combinations,...

Projecting Climate Change to Small Basins: Potential Impact of Global Warming on Hurricane-Induced Flooding in South Florida
An important difficulty in evaluating potential hydrologic impacts of climate variability is that predictions of climate change require global simulation models that do not resolve phenomena...

Incorporating Global Positioning System Technology Into Coastal Mapping and Research Efforts

Monitoring Absolute Sea Level Change
Global-scale monitoring of sea level change is a key component of the U.S. Global Change Research Program. The NOAA Global Sea Level program incorporates state-of-the-art satellite and...

Sea Level Rise and Maritime Boundaries: The Effect of Rising Sea Level on International Boundaries
This paper, jointly written by a lawyer and a coastal geomorphologist, will examine the possible responses at a legal level to the implications of global warming induced sea level rise...

Global Climate Change Assessment in Washington State
Two global climate change assessment projects were initiated by Washington state in 1988: first a Sea Level Rise Response Program and then Washington Environment 2010. The Sea Level Rise...

3-D Positioning for Construction Surveying and Automation
Three-dimensional real-time positioning is a critical requirement to allow for improved surveying and autonomous vehicle control. Given such a system and a project data link, multiple...

Evaluation of Global Warming Impact on Soil Moisture and Water Runoff in Texas
In this paper a numerical evaluation of the variability of soil moisture and surface runoff due to global warming is carried out. An analytical model of the soil moisture balance based...

Possible Climate Change and Its Impact on Snowmelt and Water Supply in California
Global climate modelers are forecasting relatively large future climate change, with warming of 2 to 5°C. These changes, if they do occur, would have major impacts on California's...

Closing The Floodgates
The White Rock Creek basin in Dallas and Collin Counties, is one of Texas' most crucial resources. While large tracts of undeveloped land in Collin County remain under agricultural...

Hydrologic Implications of Global Warming on Water Resources in California
The possible effects of climate change on the water resources of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Basin, as predicted by general circulation models (GCM's) were evaluated...

Advances in Flood Plain Management Techniques

Surveying's New Promise: Centimeters from Space
One centimeter accuracy at far less cost than surveying by traditional methods is promised by the Global Positioning System (GPS). Signals from NAVSTAR satellites are received by two or...

Projecting Sea Level Rise to the Year 2100

Surveying and Photogrammetry Research Needs
An ASCE-National Science Foundation committee listed and prioritized research needs in surveying and photogrammetry. Among them are the Department of Defense's Global Positioning...

Geodetic Surveying: The Next Decade
By the end of the next decade (1988), most large-area geodetic surveys will probably be made using a satellite Doppler positioning system, an inertial positioning system, or some combination...
