Influence of Storm Type and Urbanization on Tidal Flooding

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...

Intermediate Service Levels in Water Distribution
This paper is concerned with design standards for secondary water distribution networks. Based on field studies in the Middle East and Africa, mathematical equations were developed for...

Subsidence From Lowering of the Ground Water Level

Geodetic Leveling in Land Subsidence Studies

Definition of Mean High Water Line
Ever since the Pilgrims set foot on these shores Americans have been concerned with riparian rights; The King of England had retained the right of navigation. In the past, tidal observations...

East Mesa Geothermal Test Site
Geothermal fluid with its inherent heat energy has the potential of providing high quality water for augmentation of the Colorado River system. Desalting tests have been conducted utilizing...

Probability Analysis of Historical Flood Data
In addition to routinely collected hydrometric data, information on past river water levels at a site can often be gathered from various other sources such as residents and archives. However...

Water Supply Regionalization: A Critical Evaluation
The Safe Drinking Water Act will cause a careful examination of the way water is handled before it is delivered to the consumer. A part of the Act explicitly encourages development of...

Automatic Water-Level Control in South Africa
The principle of proportional, integral, and derivative sensing constitutes the theme of this paper. A study was made of the different types of control elements involved. This resulted...

The Water Levels of the Great Lakes

Shoreline Resource Change Due to High Water Levels

A Remote Water Level Telemetry System

Ice Sheet Loads on Marina Piles
Two marina piles were instrumented with steel sleeves. The steel sleeves were fixed rigidly to the top of the piles. The bottoms of the sleeves were free to freeze into the ice sheet....

Sedimentation of River Navigation Channels
The sedimentation of navigation channels due to leveling of side slopes is investigated. This leveling is caused by the deviation of the particle path from the direction of bed shear on...
