Prediction of Runoff-Evapotranspiration to Estimate Leachate Generation in a Landfill
The fraction of precipitation that remains after runoff and surface water evaporation, enters into the solid waste landfill and generates leachate flow at the bottom. A part of the infiltration...

Flood Hazard Scenarios in a Pleistocene-Holocene Basin
Technical scenarios are used to characterize the flood hazard in the Bayou Fountain Basin, an area of complex geomorphology and urbanization. Floods from three sources, 1) local precipitation,...

Erosion Potential of Pacific Basin Precipitation
Average annual erosivity (EI) values were developed using 20 years of hourly precipitation data from weather stations located on each of 10 Pacific Basin islands. Average annual erosivity...

Evaluation of the FASTCHEM Model for Predicting Leachate Attenuation at Fossil Power Plants
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has applied the model FASTCHEM to identify retardation mechanisms and predict solute transport at two fossil power plants. FASTCHEM (acronym for fly...

Uncertainty in Climate Change and Drought
A series of projections of climate change were applied to a watershed model of the Delaware River basin to identify sources of uncertainty in predicting effects of climate change on drought...

A Preliminary Model for Carbon-14 Transport in a Clay Buffer
A model has been developed to assess the effect of calcite dissolution and precipitation reactions on the transport of 14C through a saturated, calcite-containing...

Simulation of Reactive Chemical Transport in a Varying Thermal Field with Reaction-Flow Coupling
A computer program, THCVP, simulates coupling between advective/diffusive solute transport and chemical reactions, coupling of the reactions to heat transport, and feedback from precipitation/dissolution...

Calibration of High Frequency Pollen Sequences and Tree-Ring Records
Two radiocarbon dated paleoenvironmental records from southern Nevada are being examined with the possibility of correlating high-frequency pollen samples with nearby long-term tree-ring...

Evaluation of Global Warming Impact on Soil Moisture and Water Runoff in Texas
In this paper a numerical evaluation of the variability of soil moisture and surface runoff due to global warming is carried out. An analytical model of the soil moisture balance based...

Reservoir Operations by Fuzzy Goal Programming
The reservoir operations problem is composed of obtaining optimal releases, and storages of a reservoir and downstream reach routed flows based on forecasted inflows and precipitation....

Some Hydrological Impacts of Climate Change for the Delaware River Basin
To gain insight into possible impacts of climate change on water availability in the Delaware River, two models are linked. The first model is a monthly water balance model that converts...

Precipitation Variability Effects on Modeled Soil Water Deficits
Effective management of forages in steep Appalachian pastures requires an understanding of hydrologic and microclimatic processes on the area. This study was conducted to determine the...

Optimizing Wet-Dry Precipitation Probabilities for Improving Plant Establishment
Studies have shown that the chances of achieving successful seedling establishment in arid and semiarid regions is dependent upon the pattern of favorable wet-dry precipitation sequences....

Supplemental Irrigation by Runoff Farming: An Economic Assessment
A simulation model was used to evaluate the economic potential for using runoff farming techniques for growing grain sorghum at two locations in Texas. The results show that the yearly...

Mechanism of Chemical Phosphorus Removal in Activated Sludge with Al(III) and Fe(III)

Coprecipitation of Methylarsenate by Hydrolyzing Metals

Droughts and Water Supply
The current drought in California and the western U.S. are set in the framework of drought persistence, drought forecasting and reducing the consequences of droughts. During the fifteen...

Cyclic Streamflow Test for Validity of Randomness
Long-term Arizona runoff records used for flood insurance frequency analysis estimates are compared with long-term precipitation station records for cyclic behavior. Runoff cumulative...

Precipitation on Arid or Semi-Arid Regions of the Southwestern United States: Research Needs from a Consultant's Perspective
In terms of both instantaneous flow peaks and total runoff volumes, a key element in the quantification of stormwater runoff from arid and semi-arid regions of the southwestern United...

Design Cloudburst and Flash Flood Methodology for the Western Mojave Desert, California
A methodology was required for estimating flow in ungaged drainages. An analysis of floods in the western Mojave Desert showed that the largest events on basins below 1,500 meters MSL...
