Nonuniformity and Sprinkler Application Efficiency
The effects on nonuniformity of application on the application efficiency of sprinkler irrigation are investigated, first by considering three special cases, and then by deriving a general...

Environmental Behavior of Nuclear Debris
A review of the data collected since 1954 by the USPHS, AEC and its contractors, as well as other groups, on a global scale, confirms the latitudinal banding of debris from nuclear testing...

Securing More Nearly True Precipitation Measurement
The catch of freely exposed precipitation gages is deficient during windy conditions. Small-scale attached wind shields improve gage performance to some extent, but larger-scale obstructions...

Estimating the Probable maximum Precipitation
DataNotAvailable...

Economics of Urban Drainage Design
Determination of air-water space to emphasize problems of avoiding damage from excess precipitation and runoff; application of laws of continuity and of conservation of energy is considered...

Method for Estimating Consumptive Use of Water for Agriculture
Monthly and annual estimates in planning of irrigation projects; data on measured rates of consumptive use of water and on estimated consumptive use determined by various formulas; procedure...

Estimating the Probable Maximum Precipitation
A method for the systematic analysis of precipitation data for the purpose of estimating the probable maximum precipitation is proposed. Empirical distributions of the spatial and temporal...

Power from the Sea
Evaporation exceeds precipitation over the Red Sea by 1.5 x 106 cfs. All this amount is now supplied from the Indian Ocean through the narrow Straits...

Hydrology of Lake Ontario
Physical and climatological features of Lake Ontario basin; effects of climate and topography on supply of water into Lake Ontario; factors causing variation in water supplies; seasonal...

Climate and Crops in Humid Areas
Discussion of geographical variation of precipitation, temperature, sunlight and day-length, humidity, evaporation and evapotranspiration and their general effect on crops; microclimate...

The Nature of Cloud Systems
Cloud systems suitable for modification by seeding; mechanisms of precipitation formation and results obtained from seeding various types of clouds....

Physical Properties of Clouds
Results of tests on physical evaluations; evaluations included: precipitation development, temperature of region of first precipitation, dimensions of cloud required for precipitation...

Method for Estimating Consumptive Use of Water for Agriculture
Monthly and annual estimates in planning of irrigation projects; data on measured rates of consumptive use of water and on estimated consumptive use determined by various formulas; procedure...

Climate and Crops in Humid Areas
Discussion of geographical variation of precipitation, temperature, sunlight and day-length, humidity, evaporation and evapotranspiration and their general effect on crops; microclimate...

Behavior of Suspensions
Phenomena and theory of settling; analysis of slurries; settling velocity as function of temperature and of concentration; rate of precipitation; description of upflow basin, which eliminates...

Evaporation of Lake Ontario
Precipitation falling over surface of Great Lakes is considerably less than precipitation falling on adjacent land areas; evaporation computed by water budget method is reduced in same...

Hydrology of Lake Ontario
Physical and climatological features of Lake Ontario basin; effects of climate and topography on supply of water into Lake Ontario; factors causing variation in water supplies; seasonal...

Annual Droughts
Records of temperature, precipitation and crop yield are most useful tools in correlating droughts and crop yield; study of weather records and yield of corn in Iowa indicated that gain...

Water Yields as Influenced by Watershed Management
Hydrologic studies on small brush-covered watersheds in California show that increases in runoff can result from replacement of brush by grass; water yield increases of as much as 10 in....
