Infiltration Properties at Two Sites in the Konza Prairie
The spatial variability of soil hydraulic properties that govern infiltration were investigated at a pristine site and an agricultural site in the Konza Prairie Research Area of east-central...

On Conductivity of Soils with Preferential Flow Paths
Laboratory soil column experiments were conducted to study the distribution of preferential flow paths resulting from removal of colloidal size clay particles. These experiments specifically...

Guist Creek Dam Spillway Upgrade: A Maze (Labyrinth) of Difficulties
Any dam that holds back a large quantity of water is potentially dangerous. Some dams are more of a threat than others, especially those with human populations and valuable property in...

Using Probabilistic Balancing Rules in the Development of Multi-Purpose Multi-Reservoir Systems Operation Models
This paper focuses on the development of short-term (real-time) reservoir operation strategies by the incorporation of Probabilistic Balancing Rules (PBR). Probabilistic Balancing Rule...

Forcing Function and Climate Change
A system framework for investigating the effect of climate change in the upper Rio-Grande river basin, New Mexico, is developed. The forcing function or input into a climate change model...

Uncertainty Analysis of Reservoir Sedimentation
In estimating reservoir sedimentation, a number of uncertainties arise. These are related to annual streamfiow, sediment load, sediment particle size, trap efficiency, and reservoir operation....

Probabilistic Approach for Cancer Risk Assessment
Carcinogenic chemicals have entered ground water systems from surface spills and leaching from subsurface disposal sites. Of particular interest in this study was the contaminant tetrachioroethylene...

Distributions of Return Flow in Navigable Waterways
Physical impacts of barge traffic on the riverine environment have drawn increasing attention from resource managers of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Return flow, which can...

Automated Tools for Spatially Distributed Rainfall/Runoff Modeling
A watershed modeling system (WMS) has been developed to address the needs of surface water rainfall/runoff computer simulations. WMS, developed at the Engineering Computer Graphics Laboratory...

Construction of Performance Contours on the Storage-Yield Plane of a Within-Year Reservoir System
The reservoir storage-reliability-yield (S-R-Y) relationships developed in the past have considered only the probability of failure to meet the target requirements, but not the likely...
