An SCS-Based Model for Hydrologic Analysis of Watersheds
A single-event mathematical watershed model is presented in this paper to compute runoff resulting from any natural or synthetic rainfall. The formulations of the various hydrologic processes...

Runoff Prediction by Recession Curves
Based on the characteristics of the discharge hydrograph such as the rising limb and the recession curve, a simple water tank model is constructed. This water tank has cross-sectional...

On the Calibration of Hydrologic Models
A procedure is proposed to calibrate hydrologic models to generate representative design flows and flood hydrographs. This procedure includes two calibration steps; event calibration and...

A Sharp-Interface Salt Water Intrusion Code for Layered Aquifer Systems
This paper presents a quasi three dimensional, sharp-interface code that simulates salt water intrusion problems in layered aquifer systems. Efficient and robust numerical schemes make...

Application of a Density-Dependent Flow and Transport Model to a Coastal Aquifer System
A three-dimensional density-dependent groundwater flow and solute transport model for a coastal region in east-central Florida is presented. The model covers an area of approximately 2900...

Verification Tests for Transport Modeling in Coastal Aquifers
The U.S. Geological Survey three dimensional Heat and Solute Transport (HST3D) model is used to simulate fate and transport of dissolved contaminant in coastal aquifers. The model originally...

Large Flood Plains Modeling by a Cell Scheme: Application to the Pantanal of Mato Grosso
The computational modeling of large flood plains presents difficulties related to the mathematical approach of the phenomenon and also to the discretization of the area under study. In...

Global Search Technique to Calibrate Rainfall Runoff Models
The calibration of rainfall-runoff models in hydrology has not yet reached a satisfactory solution, using either manual or automatic procedures. This paper introduces a simple conceptual...

Modeling Water Table Response to Climate Change in a Norther Minnesota Peatland
Projections of global warming raise questions concerning the fate of wetlands in many parts of the world. In northern Minnesota, there is concern that the nearly 3 million hectares of...

Chaos Characteristics of Tree-Ring Series
Thirteen tree-ring series from the Salt and Verde River basins in Arizona are studied to distinguish between chaos and randomness. A chaotic moving average model that represents the time...

Characterization of Thunderstorm Rainfall for Hydrologic Modeling
Rainfall and runoff records for 30 events from a 630-hectare subwatershed on the USDA-ARS Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed in southeastern Arizona were used to estimate the desirable...

Point Precipitation Models to Simulate Water Balance at a Constructed Wetland
We compare two point precipitation models in a water balance simulation performed at a wetland constructed to treat municipal wastewater. The first precipitation model uses a simple Poisson...

Nested Modeling of Watershed Precipitation
The U. S. Bureau of Reclamation's GCCRP (Global Climate Change Research Program) is concerned with the possible impacts of global change upon precipitation, environmental variables and...

Evaluating and Guiding Weather Modification Efforts with Advanced Three-Dimensional Numerical Models
Several recent developments have expanded our capabilities to understand and document precipitation processes. One of these developments is the recent advances in computer hardware and...

Multiquadrics in Engineering Modeling
The theory of multiquadrics (MQ) is advancing rapidly and it is usable today. When appropriate MQ can accurately interpolate for unknown values with less computational cost than Kriging....

Establishing a Drought Reserve Policy for the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District
The Monterey Peninsula Water Management District was created by the California Legislature in 1977 for the purpose of developing an integrated management program for all of the water resources...

Integrated Description of Wetland Hydrology and Ecology by Mathematical Models
The agricultural utilization of the natural zone between the terrestrial and the aquatic system has reduced these important bufferzones in the last 30 years. The use of wetlands as nutrient...

Nonlinear Flow in Embankments
For a large number of water resources projects, the Dupuit-Forchheimer (D-F) assumption is considered a viable design criterion and, consequently, Darcy law is used to determine the locus...

Modeling Ground Water Mounding in a Heterogeneous Unconfined Aquifer
A numerical, potential flow solution for the flow pattern and water table elevation due to recharge in unconfined, heterogeneous aquifers has been developed using boundary, conforming...

Development of a Two-Layered Groundwater Model for the Taipei Basin
The objective of this paper is to develop a groundwater model for flow simulation in the Taipei basin. A conceptual model of the basin is first developed; the model consists of an upper...
