Neashore Sediment Transport by Slush/Brash Ice in Southern Lake Michigan
Bands of mobile ice are common features in the Great Lakes nearshore zone during the winter months. Samples were collected during December, 1989 to determine the sediment content in the...

The Structural Evolution of a Wave-Current Sediment Concentration Boundary Layer

Spit Formation in Lake and Bay
A technique of superimposing beach profiles, as a method for analyzing the characteristics and deformation process of a sand spit topography, is proposed, and the morphological changes...

Initial Shoreline Response at the Presque Isle Erosion Control Project
Construction of the Presque Isle Shoreline Erosion Control Project in Lake Erie at Erie, PA began October 1989 and consists of fifty-eight offshore segmented breakwaters with beachfill....

Influence of Water-Level Variation on the Performance of Great Lakes Beach Nourishments
In an effort to evaluate the influence of Great Lakes water level change on beach nourishment profile adjustment, an extensive ten year monitoring study was conducted in southern Lake...

Harvest Facility Protects and Improves Fishery
By constructing a trap and transfer/harvest facility to control anadromous fish migration, the trout fishery on the Boardman River was protected and the salmon fishery was improved. The...

Fish Entrainment and Mortality at the French Landing Hydroelectric Powerhouse
This case study explains the fish mortality study performed and results obtained at an existing hydroelectric powerhouse in Michigan. Undertaken in 1989 and 1990, this study provides data...

Lake Siskiyou Power Project
The Lake Siskiyou Power Project was constructed at the foot of the existing Box Canyon Dam on the Sacramento River in Northern California. Major project features included the construction...

Digital Governor Application — Bradley Lake Project
The Bradley Lake Project has two impulse turbines rated at 60 MW each to provide power to the Railbelt region of Alaska. Solid state digital governors are utilized to respond to system...

Satellite Imagery Refines PMF Determination
This paper focuses on electromagnetic energy sensors, and describes how they are being used to determine the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) for a drainage basin in Michigan. Remote sensing...

Evaluating History—The Edison Sault Powerhouse
The hydroelectric facility owned by the Edison Sault Electric Company at Sault Ste Marie, Michigan was an engineering marvel when it was designed and constructed. This paper explores the...

Research for New Water Table Management Systems
Water table management in the form of controlled-drainage and controlled-drainage/subirrigation is a feasible, yet under-utilized, practice in the Atlantic Coast flatwoods, the Ohio River...

Three-Dimensional Modeling of Transport of Fine Sediments and Contaminants in Lakes and Estuaries
The transport of fine sediments and contaminants due to currents and wind waves in estuaries and lakes have been studied by means of field experiment, laboratory experiment and a comprehensive...

A Modular Visual Interface for Computational Fluids Forecasting
A forecasting system is under development for predicting the three-dimensional physical features (e.g. velocity, temperature etc.) of large water bodies. Visualization and interface development...

Application of a 2-D Water Quality Model (BETTER) to Manage Effects of Low Flow and Wastewater Effluents in Cheatham Lake, Tennessee
Applications of BETTER, a 2-D reservoir water quality model, have been made by the Nashville District Corps of Engineers (Corps) and by the Nashville Metropolitan Water and Sewerage Services...
