Simulation of Flushing in Indian River Lagoon Using 1-D and 3-D Models
Indian River Lagoon is a long and narrow estuary along the Atlantic coast of Florida. It is connected to the ocean via three relatively narrow inlets from the north to the south: Sebastian...

Evaluating the Steady State Stochastic Dynamic Programming Model for the High Aswan Dam
The paper describes the results of a study to critically evaluate and test the Steady State Stochastic Dynamic Programming model (SSDP). Whenever a reservoir computer model is developed,...

Circulation and Flushing in Casco Bay, Maine
A modified 3-D hydrodynamic numerical model MECCA (Model for Estuarine and Coastal Circulation Assessment; Hess, 1989) has been applied to Casco Bay, Maine, with a horizontal resolution...

Application of the FESWMS-2DH Software to Solve the Navigation Problem at EL-Menya Bridge in Egypt
The purpose of this paper is to introduce the application of a two-dimensional Finite Element Surface Water Modelling System on a navigation problem located along the Nile river in front...

Marina Ashdod, Israel - An Investor's Turn-Key Project Design

New Design and Construction of Marinas in Israel

Calibration of Movable Bed Model for Armant Area
The morphology of the Nile River, in Egypt, is undergoing continuous changes which causes navigation bottle-necks in some local reaches. About 200 km downstream Aswan, at Armant area,...

Recent Applications of Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers
A Broadband acoustic Doppler current profiler (BB-ADCP) is a new instrument being used by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to measure stream discharge and velocities, and bathymetry....

The Miller City Levee Break and Incipient Meander Cutoff
On July 15, 1993, the flooding Mississippi River broke through a levee near Miller City, Ill., at the head of the Mississippi Embayment, approximately 55 km upstream from Cairo, Ill. Flow...

Step Pool Geometry and Flow Characteristics in Low-Sediment-Storage Channel Beds
Data from two small ephemeral streams in Israel indicate that step pool geometry in bedrock channels is similar, in its salient features, to that in alluvial channels. For steep (>0.10)...

World Bank Update: In Deep Water
The World Bank has announced a dramatic shift in water policy that will nearly quadruple its spending in this area while it shifts the emphasis toward sustainable development. Instead...
