BASIN 2.0 for the Design of Level-Basin Irrigation Systems
The purpose of this paper is to present a computer program for the hydraulic design of level-basin irrigation systems. The first of three design modes provides design based on the advance...

CPIVOT v 2.0 Center Pivot Analysis and Design Software
A micro-computer based software package is presented which can be used for hydraulic design and/or analysis of center pivot irrigation systems. The software is written in C and requires...

Flow Simulation for Surface Irrigation Design
Experience shows that even the most sophisticated and accurate computer models of the surface-irrigation process will not be widely used by design agencies unless they manifest a certain...

Density Fluctuations and Use of the Krypton Hygrometer in Surface Flux Measurements
The magnitude of the of the Webb et al. (1980) density corrections on water vapor fluxes due to the flux of sensible heat is examined in terms of the Bowen ratio. The correction due to...

Comparing Bowen Ratio-Energy Balance Systems for Measuring ET
Two Bowen ratio-energy balance (BREB) systems for measuring evapotranspiration (ET) under wet and dry conditions were compared. The study sites were an irrigated grass sod near Kimberly,...

Growing Season Evapotranspiration and Crop Coefficient
The Bowen ratio-energy balance (BREB) method was used to continuously estimate 20-minute actual evapotranspiration (ETa) in the middle of a 36-ha...

Standards for Automated Agricultural Weather Stations
A progress report is presented on American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) Standards Project X505: Measurement and Reporting Standards for Automated Agricultural Weather Stations....

Nongrowing Season ET from Irrigated Fields
The evaporative loss of water from agricultural fields during the nongrowing season is an important component of the annual water balance of irrigated lands. This study was conducted to...

Updating Utah's Crop Water Use Estimates
Crop water use was estimated at National Weather Service stations throughout Utah for the 1961-1990 normal period. Daily weather data (air temperature, solar radiation, humidity, wind...

Revision of Oregon Crop Water Use and Irrigation Requirements
A project to revise the crop water use estimates and irrigation requirements for the state at Oregon is described. The FAO modified Blaney-Criddle method was applied in this project since...

Streamflow Depletions and Water Transfers in Idaho
In the state of Idaho, streamflow depletions are quantified utilizing parameters of rate of flow, total volume diverted, and volume consumptively used. This paper summarizes the engineering...

Streamflow Depletions for Water Transfers in Utah
All inter- or intra-state transfers of Utah water rights must be accomplished by application and receive the approval of the Utah State Engineer. This paper summarizes the engineering...

Streamflow Depletions Considered in Water Transfers
In the State of Colorado, streamflow depletions are defined as that amount of water diverted to beneficial use minus return flows to the stream system. This paper summarizes the engineering...

Evaluating the Facts in Water Right Changes
Under the western system of appropriation water rights may be separated from the land and the time, type and place of use changed. Such changes are governed by the principle that there...

Water Transfer: Applicants and Objectors Analyses
Two different analyses of the historical on-farm consumptive use and return flows of agricultural water rights in Northern Colorado are discussed. The City of Thornton plans the transfer...

Water Penetration Manual for California Soils
Slow water penetration in irrigated soils is a complex problem of major importance in California's $18 billion agricultural industry. The Kearney Foundation of Soil Science chose to work...

Evapotranspiration of Dry Beans with Drip Irrigation
Information about the effect of irrigation on dry bean production in the Southwestern Colorado is very limited. The primary objective of this study is to establish a crop water use (ET)...

Coping with Agricultural Shortages
Coping with agricultural shortages occupies most of the time and energy of the Kern County Water Agency (Agency). The Agency's participation in the State Water Project (SWP) originated...

Central Valley Project Energy Efficiency Study

Earthquake Risk GIS Analysis for Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, China
The Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region is a small autonomous region in the eastern part of northwest China and below Inner Mongolia with an area of 66,400 square meters. Ningxia's population...
