Risk Analysis: Wet Weather Flows in S.E. Michigan
Institutional aspects of risk analysis are examined in two separate activities in the state of Michigan. The state of Michigan's relative risk project, patterned after the U.S. EPA's risk...

Climate Warming and Great Lakes Management
A decision-analysis approach to determining the relevance of information on climate change for near-term Great Lakes management decisions is outlined. Simplified applications to decisions...

Behavioral, Social, and Institutional Aspects of Risk Analysis
The paper summarizes the third session of the conference which discussed four items that become pitfalls for decision makers when neglected. These are parameter uncertainties as distinct...

Evaluation and Management of Non-Point Source Pollutants in the Lake Tahoe Watershed
Lake Tahoe, California-Nevada, one of the most oligotrophic lakes in the world, is experiencing decreased water clarity and increased periphyton growth, and water supplies drawing from...

Measurement of Turbulent Properties in a Natural System
Instruments designed to measure flow properties in stratified estuaries, lakes and oceans are reviewed. Emphasis is given to the measurement of turbulent fluxes and recent developments...

Interactive Models for the Regulation of Lake Ontario
Extensive studies are underway to improve the regulation of Lake Ontario. These studies not only involve the inclusion of factors and interest groups not previously considered, but also...

Benefits of Hazard Mitigation Planning to Reduce Shoreline Impacts Due to Great Lakes Water Level Management Fluctuations and Severe Storms
Recent experience with flood hazard mitigation planning that encompassed aspects of pre-disaster preparedness and recovery operations have proven to be an effective tool in geographic...

GLFSVIEW - GLFS Product Viewing Application
GLFSVIEW is a menu-driven Visual Basic application running under MicroSoft Windows. This application allows quick downloading, browsing, printing and display of two-dimensional data maps...

Spectral and Parametric Wave Models of Lake Erie
The GLERL-Donelan parametric wave model and the SHALWV spectral wave model are presently being used as modules of the Great Lakes Forecasting System in order to determine which best fits...

Short-Term Forecasts for Lake Erie
Short-term forecasts for Lake Erie were generated by coupling a mesoscale atmospheric prediction system with a lake forecast system. The modeling systems used were The Pennsylvania State...

Third Lake Watershed Assessment and Action Plan
Third Lake, located in Lake County, Illinois, is expected to exhibit worsening inlake water quality as development occurs within its watershed. A geographic information system (GIS) application...

Fish Entrainment and Strategies for Diversion
Hydroelectric power projects often impound reservoirs which contain important recreational fisheries. The entrainment of fish through these facilities and the possible associated entrainment...

Mixing of Thermal Discharges at Low Froude Numbers
A study was performed to develop an optimum configuration for the discharge canal of a cooling lake. The objective was to minimize the initial mixing at the end of the discharge canal,...

Stratified Flow in an Impounded Inland River
Stratified flow in the Seneca River of central New York is described. This flow condition occurs in the vicinity of the outflow from saline Onondaga Lake, and exists both upstream and...

1993 Ground-Water Flooding in the Havana Area
The Havana area in Mason County, west-central Illinois, experienced nearly continuous rises in the water table beginning in the fall of 1992 which created lakes in depressed areas. Water...

Sedimentation and Remediation Aspects of Recreation Lakes
Relatively higher rates of silting in Lake Shafer, Indiana during the past few years have been a matter of concern to its owners, operators, and users. Potential causes for observed increases...

Modeling Ecological Impacts of Destratification
Artificial destratification has long been advocated as a means of improving water quality in lakes and reservoirs. The results have been varied with examples of both water quality improvement...
