Effect of Agricultural Drainage on Water Quality in the Humid Portion of the Pacific Northwest
Agricultural drainage first began in Washington around 1830 and in Oregon around 1840. The first efforts to drain soils for agricultural use began by constructing shallow ditches spaced...

A Removable Submarine Cover for Drydock No. 2 Modernization
In order to provide balanced overhaul capability and flexibility in the 1990's and beyond, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery Maine, a major U.S. Navy submarine and overhaul repair...

Urban Water Issues/Strategies in the Humid Tropics
Annual rainfall volumes in the Humid Tropics are large, and the events can be quite intense, but they can also be highly variable, with periods in which little or no rainfall occurs. Streams...

Practical Prediction of Concrete Shrinkage and its Uncertainty
An improved prediction model for shrinkage is proposed. The main features are (1) diffusion-type size dependence for humidity effects, (2) initial and final asymptotic forms of the shrinkage...

Lessons Learned in Southeast United States
The droughts during the decades of the eighties in the southeast were the most severe during the period of record. In addition to the immediate inconvenience they caused, they were precursors...

Effect of Humidity on Low Temperature Thermal Desorption of Volatile Organic Compounds from Contaminated Soil

Effective On-Farm Irrigation Scheduling in the Humid Southeast
An extension demonstration of a checkbook type irrigation scheduling system using a personal computer and spread sheet is described. The system incorporates typical crop water use curves,...

Sedimentation of Lakes and Reservoirs in Illinois
A generalized analysis of lake sedimentation rates in Illinois provides a representative 'window' on sedimentation rates of midwestern lakes located in humid...

CWSI and Stomatal Resistance of Cotton and Soybeans
A new instrument, Scheduler(TRADEMARK), has been developed to measure the onset and duration of plant water stress. This device consists of a sensor package (containing an infrared thermometer,...

Remote Sensing Applications in the Model of Runoff Formation in Excess of Storage
The model of runoff formation in excess of storage applied in some humid regions of China is revised in this paper, so that the model can adopt the information provided by Landsat remote...

Monitoring Groundwater Quality in the Southwest
Monitoring groundwater quality near sources of pollution in the southwest commonly involves highly productive alluvial aquifers. Experience in monitoring in such a setting indicates that...

Impact of Irrigation on Groundwater Quality in Humid Areas
The GLEAMS Model (Groundwater Loading Effects of Agricultural Management Systems) was applied to estimate the effects of soil, planting date, irrigation level, and pesticide characteristics...

Predicting Carbon Adsorption of Organics from Humid Air
Increased levels of humidity resulted in reduced adsorption capacity for trichloroethylene (TCE) at low influent concentrations on a microporous activated carbon. Water vapor also reduced...
