Potential Microbial Impacts on Groundwater Quality
Over the last decade there has been significant progress in the understanding of sub-surface microbiology. The ubiquity of microorganisms within groundwaters forms a major part of these...

Flood Quantiles for Small Watersheds Using Peak Elevation to Volume Method

Evaluation of Sampling Properties of General Extreme Value (GEV) Distribution-L-Moments Vs Conventional Moments
The sample estimates of conventional moments are shown to be biased and this bias increases for small samples, and especially so when the skewness is high (Wallis et al., 1974). The recently...

FLODRO 2.0: A User Friendly Personal Computer Package for Flood and Drought Frequency Analyses
The use of personal computers have changed dramatically the way to perform several studies related with hydrological problems. The increased capabilities of the current generation of personal...

Depth-Averaged Boussinesq Equations Applied to Flow in a Converging Channel
Supereritical flow in a contracting channel is simulated by numerically solving the 2D depth-averaged Boussinesq equations using a fmite-difference model DASH (Molls and Chaudhry 1995,...

Dam Foundation Erosion Study: The Design of a Sidewall Orifice for Simulation of a Free Trajectory Overtopping Jet
This paper describes the design of a sidewall discharging orifice for simulation of a free trajectory overtopping jet. A sidewall orifice discharges through the sidewall of a pipe. The...

Genetic Algorithm Design of Piped Irrigation Systems
The design of piped irrigation systems is a complex matter. In its simplest form it involves the selection of the sizes of pipes and other hydraulic elements so as to ensure that the varying...

Automatic Control of Flocculation Processes
A control system for flocculation, used in water and wastewater treatment operations is being developed. The approach is based on detailed particle size distribution measurements of influent...

Flow through Vertical Barrier Screens—Numerical Model
A simple one-dimensional numerical model based on the energy equation is developed to predict the normal flow distribution through barrier screens composed of several vertical segments...

Periodic Variation in Karst Stream Losses
A cave taking water from an ephemeral stream periodically reroutes surface and subsurface drainage because of a plug that forms 10 m below the main entrance to the cave. The plug of sand,...

Infiltration Properties at Two Sites in the Konza Prairie
The spatial variability of soil hydraulic properties that govern infiltration were investigated at a pristine site and an agricultural site in the Konza Prairie Research Area of east-central...
