Effect of Agricultural Drainage on Water Quality in the Great Lakes and Cornbelt States
The soils and the climate of the Great Lakes and Cornbelt states dictate that drainage is required to carry out economically viable farming activities. When drained, the soils are very...

Observations of Artificial Destratification
Artificial destratification using bubble plumes is one means whereby low dissolved oxygen in the hypolimnion of lakes and reservoirs may be averted. Temperature and DO were measured at...

Design and Performance of Emergency Spillway Channel Erosion Protection—Grenada Lake Dam, Grenada, Mississippi
Grenada Lake Dam located on the Yalobusha River in northeast Mississippi is part of the Mississippi River and Tributaries comprehensive plan for flood control. The 13,000-ft-long earthfill-type...

A 2-D Lake Model with Artificial Destratification
Artificial destratification of lakes and reservoirs is used to influence a variety of water quality parameters. It relies on localized, vertical mixing of the water column and the subsequent...

Wind Induced Circulation in Shallow Lakes
Clear Lake is a relatively shallow lake in Northern California. Natural flows are small but at times they do transport heavy metals into the lake. In order to predict water quality constituent...
