The Use of Iron Salts to Control Dissolved Sulfide in Districts' Trunk Sewers
Headspace H2S removal via the precipitation of dissolved sulfide was investigated using iron chlorides. Full-scale experiments were conducted in...

Threshold Precipitation Events and Groundwater Recharge
Data from two study sites on the Nevada Test Site, Nevada are used with precipitation data from other long-term precipitation gages to identify the frequency of precipitation events that...

Minimizing the Probable Maximum Flood
A newly-developed probable maximum precipitation (PMP) estimate for Wisconsin and Michigan reduced precipitation depths by 20%. Should a given area's probable maximum flood...

A Methodology for the Evaluation of Global Warming Impact on Soil Moisture and Runoff
Global warming is expected to increase the intensity of the global hydrologic cycle. Precipitation and temperature patterns, soil moisture requirements, and the physical structure of the...

The National Drought Atlas

Selected Precipitation Characteristics in Antelope Valley, Mojave Desert, CA
An urban hydrology study currently in progress in Antelope Valley, California, includes the collection and analyses of precipitation and runoff data. Storms in Antelope Valley are most...

Temporal Variation of Precipitation Trend at Seoul, Korea, 1771-1991
This paper describes temporal variation of annual precipitation trend from 1771 to 1991 at Seoul, Korea. Analysis of the series shows no distinct trend over years. A linear trend would...

Combining Orographic Precipitation and Runoff Models for Improving Reservoir Operations
This paper reports on a study being conducted by the Bureau of Reclamation whose end objectives are improved quantitative precipitation forecast (QPF) for use in hydrologic runoff models...

Precipitation Data in the Mountains of the Western United States: Do We Have What We Need?
Data collected by the National Weather Service and the Soil Conservation Service in the western United States are the primary sources of precipitation information for engineering and hydrologic...

Mountainous Precipitation Estimation Using Multivariate Statistical Analysis and Geographic Information Systems
Using rotated principal component analysis (PCA), unique, orthogonal spatial patterns of daily and monthly precipitation on a well-instrumented, mountainous watershed in Idaho (USA) were...

Development of an Isohyetal Analysis for Oregon Using the Prism Model
PRISM (Precipitation-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model) is an analytical model that uses point data and a digital elevation model (DEM) to generate gridded estimates of...

Peaks Over Threshold Model for Seasonal Flood Variations
The peaks over threshold (POT) series model has been used in hydrology to analyse extreme phenomena such as floods or precipitation amounts exceeding a certain threshold level. The results...

PMF Estimation for a Sparsely Gaged Watershed
This paper describes a procedure used to determine the design-basis and probable maximum flood (DBF and PMF) for Jiguey Dam located in the Dominican Republic. This dam is situated upstream...

A New Look at the Statistical Estimation of PMP
The statistical base of Hershfield's Kmvalue Method and its application for estimating Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) were reviewed. The mathematical...

Mean Areal Precipitation Estimation Using Radar
The accuracy of mean areal total storm precipitation (MAP) over small urban basins (30-100 km2) in the Denver, CO metro region was examined using...

WSR-88D Precipitation Processing and Its Use in National Weather Service Hydrologic Forecasting
The National Weather Service (NWS), along with the Department of Defense and Transportation, have begun deployment of a new national network of weather radars referred to as the WSR-88D....

A Continuous, Incremental Antecedent Precipitation Index (API) Model for use with the National Weather Service River Forecast System

Strategy for Utilizing Radar-Based Precipitation Estimates for River Forecasting

Spatial and Temporal Precipitation Characteristics in Southwest Idaho
The USDA-ARS, Northwest Watershed Research Center operates a precipitation gage network on the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed in southwest Idaho. Analysis of the 30-yr (1962-1991)...

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...
