New Design and Construction of Marinas in Israel

Step Pool Geometry and Flow Characteristics in Low-Sediment-Storage Channel Beds
Data from two small ephemeral streams in Israel indicate that step pool geometry in bedrock channels is similar, in its salient features, to that in alluvial channels. For steep (>0.10)...

Optimal Strategy Within a Traffic Control Center
This paper describes part of a new Central Traffic Control System (CTCS), implemented in several sites in Europe, and recently in Haifa, Israel. The CTCS effected in Haifa contains enhanced...

Evaluation of Runway Roughness for Fighter Jets
A new roughness evaluation procedure is needed, especially, when dealing with modern fighter jets. To this end, a comprehensive pilot attitude survey was conducted in Israel in order to...

Risk Assessment and Management of an Oil Contaminated Aquifer: A Case History Study
This paper concerns the provision of the basic information needed for the decision-making process regarding the remedial measures leading to reutilization of an oil contaminated aquifer....

On the Application of Multiphase Flow Models for the Simulation of Density Stratified Flow in Aquifers
Two types of numerical simulation approach are usually applied when simulating density-stratified flow in aquifers: (a) the sharp interface approach, and (b) the coupling of flow transport...

Eilat—A Paradise of Coast and Sealife
This paper describes the development of the existing lagoon in Eilat, Israel, into a modern marina and the dredging of two new lagoons. The existing lagoon was dredged and developed some...

Artificial Recharge of Ground Water
A need for international and interdisciplinary technology transfer on the subject of artificial recharge resulted in the American Society of Civil Engineers' (ASCE) Irrigation...

Issues in Specifying Climate Forcing of Variability
Several issues arise in the specification of the role of climatic forcing of variability of water resources. The effects of human intervention must be removed so that the climate signal...
