Point Precipitation Models to Simulate Water Balance at a Constructed Wetland
We compare two point precipitation models in a water balance simulation performed at a wetland constructed to treat municipal wastewater. The first precipitation model uses a simple Poisson...

Analysis of Spatial and Temporal Precipitation Data Over a Densely Gaged Experimental Watershed
Historical precipitation data from the densely gaged Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed in southeastern Arizona are used to quantify watershed-scale properties of precipitation. Daily,...

Comparison of Nested Models' Local-Scale Precipitation from a Three-Year Base Run and a Corresponding Doubled CO2 Run
Comparisons were made of nested model simulated precipitation from a 3-yr base run and the corresponding doubled-CO2 run for the Gunnison watershed...

Nested Modeling of Watershed Precipitation
The U. S. Bureau of Reclamation's GCCRP (Global Climate Change Research Program) is concerned with the possible impacts of global change upon precipitation, environmental variables and...

Probable Maximum Precipitation Study for Michigan and Wisconsin: Procedures and Results

Engineering Hydrology
This proceedings, Engineering Hydrology, contains papers that were presented at the Symposium held in San Francisco, California, July 25-30,...

Mechanism of a Landslide Caused by Rainfall

Deformation of Fill Slopes Caused by Wetting

A Markov Chain Approach for Analyzing Palmer Drought Index
Drought is conceived as a period of below normal precipitation or moisture deficiency that would affect the social and economic activities of a region. The Palmer Drought Index (PDI) is...

The Use of Sophisticated Three-Dimensional Numerical Models in Weather Modification Efforts
Understanding of the complex interactions between the mesoscale and cloud environment and between microphysical and dynamical processes within clouds can be substantially increased with...

The Present Status of Precipitation Enhancement by Cloud Seeding
Atmospheric water in the form of precipitation, is one of the primary sources of fresh water in the world. However, a large amount of water present in clouds never gets transformed into...

Probability and Climatology of Droughts in the Western United States
The incidence of drought in the western United States is caused primarily by large-scale anomalies in the circulation of atmospheric, midlatitudinal, transport and the occurrence of the...

Assessing the Reliability of the Water Supply to a Closed Basin Wetlands
In many reports, it has been predicted that the loss of the Cheyenne Bottoms as a wetlands area would have an adverse effect on a great deal of the North American migratory shore bird...

Regional Frequency Analysis Using L-Moments

Stochastic Simulation of Climate Input for Water Supply Forecasting

Small-Scale Meteorology of Freezing Precipitation
Freezing rain and glazing are extremely disruptive to transportation, communication and power transmission. Local variations in the occurrence of freezing rain may be difficult to forecast....

Sustainable Energy Systems: A New Paradigm for New Energy Technologies
The fundamental links between energy production/use and the environment are becoming increasingly apparent. The major environmental challenges of global climate change, acid precipitation,...

Major and Trace Elements Regulation in Natural Granitic Waters. Application to Deep Radioactive Waste Disposals
In order to forecast the evolution of deep groundwaters in the environment of a radioactive waste disposal, one must be able to understand the behaviour of major and trace elements in...

CALIBRE and CRYSTAL: Near-field and Geosphere Models for Project-90
A new near-field model (CALIBRE) and a fractured geosphere model (CRYSTAL) have been developed in support of the Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate's Project-90 safety assessment...

Evaluation of Intensity-Duration-Frequency Curves by Point Precipitation Models
In this work an alternative approach to estimate the Intensity-Duration-Frequency curves is used. This approach which uses point precipitation models recently proposed in the literature...
