Geomorphic Effects of Projected Sea Level Rise: A Case Study of Galveston Bay, Texas

Lifting and Leveling Heavy Concrete Structures

Prediction of Water Level in Tidal Inlet
A very important and difficult problem is operation of gates at the inlet of tidal lakes in order to control water quality and quantity. The gate operation must sufficiently satisfy both...

Localized Destratification at Lake Texoma
An axial flow Garton Pump was used to improve release water quality from Lake Texoma during thermal stratification. An 8-ft (2.44m) diam propeller pump, mounted on a floating support platform,...

Jackson Mississippi Computer-Aided Flood Warning

Model Intercomparison of Lake Erie Storm Surge Resonance Predictions

Subsidence in Harris and Galveston Counties, Texas
Land-surface subsidence is of critical concern for the Harris-Galveston Region of Texas. Subsidence has been predominately associated with the removal of ground water in this area. Water-level...

Predicting Lake Levels by Exponential Smoothing
A statistical univariate forecasting technique called Exponentially Weighted Moving Average (EWMA) is used to obtain the estimates of future water levels of a large lake. The characteristics...

Salinity Forum: What? How? Why—
Historically, salinity in the Colorado River System has increased significantly due to export of high quality water from the upper reaches and salt pickup from irrigation return flow....

Disposal of Utility Wastes Over a High Water Table

Computer Applications Used in Operational Planning and Real-Time Economic Control of Hydro Power

Golden Gate Tidal Measurements: 1854-1978
The recent discovery of leveling connections between the bench marks of the tide stations at Fort Point Sausalito, and the Presidio, San Francisco, California, between 1954 and the present,...

Lake Michigan Water Allocation in Illinois
In 1967 the United States Supreme Court entered a Decree that limited the direct diversion of Lake Michigan water by the State of Illinois to annual average flow of 3,200 cfs. The state...

Ground-Water Management with Fixed Charges
The problem of where to drill wells, how many to drill, and how to pump them in order to maintain low water levels in an excavation most economically is formulated as a fixed-charge problem....

Asymmetric Variation of Ghyben-Herzberg Lens
An asymmetric freshwater lens is shown to exist in a long narrow coastal barrier beach bounded on one side by a salt water lagoon and on the other by the ocean. Field measurements of ground-water...

Water Level Variations along California Coast
Daily, monthly, yearly, and long-term variations in sea level relative to land, and highest water levels are examined at 15 locations along the California coast. The longest, uninterrupted,...

Hydraulic Considerations in Declining-Rate Filtration
Flow control through granular filters is an important factors in filter performance in both water and wastewater treament. Declining-rate filtration plants operate without effluent rate...
