Section 1, The Scientific Basis

Alkaline Ferrous and Sulfide Reduction of Chromium

Converging Flow Model Applied to Urban Catchment
A converging kinematic wave overland flow model was applied to an urban catchment, Rock Creek Watershed in Maryland. The 2-parameter model was easily calibrated and gave reasonable predictions...

Precipitation Forecasting at a National Center

Modelling Climatic Effects on Clay Beneath Slabs

Comparative Metals Precipitation Techniques

Acid Precipitation: Spatial and Temporal Trends

Water Shortages in the Southeast

The NWS Extended Streamflow Prediction Technique

Optimal Sequence of Incremental Precipitation
Safety related components of nuclear power plants and a number of strategic onshore river structures are designed to withstand the severe hydraulic conditions associated with a probable...

Drainage Rates and Water-Table Depths
Precipitation and evapotranspiration data for 27 years from three stations in the Ottawa and St. Lawrence Lowlands have been used together with a hydrologic model of the drainage process...

The Effect of Precipitation Patterns on Surface Runoff

Virus Sampling in Wastewater - Field Experiences
Membrane adsorption, chemical precipitation, and soluble alginate filtration methodologies have been combined in the development of a relatively simple yet sensitive procedure for detecting...

Leachate Production at Sanitary Landfill Sites
It is becoming increasingly important to minimize the quantity of leachate produced at a sanitary landfill site to reduce contamination of ground water and surface water. The water balance...

Population Balance Use in Dilute Impurity Problems
The application of population balance and kinetic analysis to problems concerning removal of dilute amounts of impurities from liquids is demonstrated. The technique is applied to data...

Correlation Analysis of Hydrometeorological Data
Mean monthly time series of precipitation, runoff, atmospheric water vapor transport, terrestrial storage, and evapotranspiration for watersheds distributed over the entire continental...

Sprinkler Uniformity Measures and Skewness
The measures of uniformity of sprinkler irrigation like Christiansen's coefficient of uniformity, Wilcox-Swale's coefficient and pattern efficiency has, in the...

Coal Pile Leachate—Quantity and Quality Characteristics
A detailed monitoring of an existing coal pile at Ithaca, N.Y. was performed to determine coal pile leachate (CPL) quantity and quality variations. The total quantity of CPL generated...

Water Harvesting — Modern Application of an Ancient Method
Water harvesting—The process of collecting natural precipitation from prepared watersheds for beneficial use was the topic of a 3-day symposium held in Phoenix, Arizona, in March 1974....
