The French and Belgian Coast from Dunkirk to De Panne: A Case Study of Transborder Cooperation in the Framework of the Interreg Initiative of the European Community
The North Sea coast between the French town of Dunkirk and the Belgian sea resort of De Panne consists of sandy beaches bordered by dunes. A number of smaller sea resorts lie between these...

Argentina: Coastal Lagoons and Other Circulation—Restricted Environments
Argentina shows a peculiar profile concerning coastal management. On one hand the country does not have a integrated coastal management program as defined by international institutional...

Patos Lagoon
Patos Lagoon is one of South America's most important lagoonal environments. There is a complex of basins, controlled by the coastal lagoons Mirim and Patos, whose salinity regime is influenced...

Framework for the Planning and Coastal Management of the Concepcion, San Vicente and Coronel Bays, Chile
During recent years, coastal area degradation in the Biobio Region, especially in the enclosed bays and estuaries, have been monumental. At this time, the progressive loss of resources,...

Special Area Management Planning in Ecuador's Rio Chone Estuary
The preparation and adoption of community-based plans for sustainable use and development of coastal resources and areas has been one of the major early goals of the Ecuador coastal resources...

Indian River Lagoon Consensus Management, Florida
The Indian River Lagoon, Florida is a bar-built estuarine system extending along forty percent of Florida's Atlantic coast. While one of the earliest mapped features in North America,...

Argentina: Advances on Coastal Management
This paper updates the description and analysis of coastal management strategies and institutional arrangements as practiced in Argentina at national, provincial and municipal levels....

Establishing a Human Factors Focus and Approach for North Carolina's IVHS Efforts
The paper discusses the behavioral and human factors issues associated with the development and operation of North Carolina's CARAT program (Congestion Avoidance and Reduction for Autos...

Impacts of Climate Change on Evapotranspiration and Runoff in the Tennessee River Basin
Recent climate change studies using general circulation models demonstrated the potential for a 1 to 3°C warming in North America, as well as increases in precipitation and evaporation...

Estimation and Regionalization Procedures of Nash's Instantaneous Unit Hydrograph
A 'total fit' method is suggested for computing Nash's instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) which minimizes the errors of all ordinates between the observed and generated hydrographs. Previous...

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...

Estimating Runoff from Precipitation and Temperature
Increasing demands for water and the global climate change resulting from the CO2 buildup in the atmosphere require an improved evaluation of surface-water...

Effect of Agricultural Drainage on Water Quality in the Southeastern Coastal Plain
This paper is designed to consolidate selected research and results from investigations of the impacts of agricultural drainage on water quality in North Carolina, South Carolina, and...

Watershed Erosion
Scientific agricultural planning requires knowledge of the relations between soil and water that cause soil loss, and of the procedure to reduce such losses on cropland. This paper presents...

Stratification Models Sensitivity to Solar Radiation Data
A one-dimensional water quality model (WESTEX model) for simulation of thermal stratification is used to test the performance of such models related to hydrometeorological input data....

Salt Transport in a Tidal Canal, West Neck Creek, Virginia
Flow and stability were monitored during 1989-92 in West Neck Creek, Virginia, which provides a direct hydraulic connection between the saline waters of Chesapeake Bay and the relatively...

Chatuge Hydroproject Aerating Infuser Physical Model Study
The Tennessee Valley Authority is investigating the feasibility of a dual purpose reregulation and aeration weir to increase the dissolved oxygen in water releases and to provide continuous...

Modeling Vertical Stratification in the Pamlico River Estuary Using Modern Hydrodynamics
A modern hydrodynamic model is applied to the Pamlico River estuary. Good agreement was obtained between measured and predicted water elevations and salinity distributions during the one...

New Canadian Provisions Related to the Design of Composite Beams
In this paper, the new provisions in CAN/CSA-S16.1-M89 for the design of composite beams, together with reasons for changes, are discussed. Some of the new provisions reflect results of...
