Alfalfa ET Measurements with Drainage Lysimeters
Drainage lysimeters were used to measure alfalfa evapotranspiration (ET) under a line-gradient sprinkler system in the high-elevation desert conditions of northwest New Mexico. The lysimeters...

Lysimeters Versus Buffer Areas Et and Agronomic Comparisons
Evapotranspiration (Et) from lysimeters may not represent Et of undisturbed, surrounding sites because of factors related to water, soils, plants, and even animal life. Et and agronomic...

Lysimetry for Evaporation and Transpiration Measurement
Large hydraulically weighed lysimeters were used to measure evapotranspiration (ET), evaporation (E), and transpiration (T). Weighing lysimeters for T measurements were covered to suppress...

Water Quality Sampling Under Preferential Flow Conditions
Shallow wells, porous cup samplers, and wick and gravity pan lysimeters were used to observe the movement of bromide applied to the surface of a grass covered field during a 23 day period....

Lysimeters to Study Soil Water Movement and Crop Water Use Under High Water Table Conditions
A system of 6 drainage lysimeters was constructed to conduct studies of water use and water movement in 3 different soils influenced by high water tables. The lysimeters were equipped...

Drainage Lysimeters for High Water Table Citrus Studies
Forty drainage lysimeters were installed in 1988 to conduct water quality and consumptive use studies for citrus. The lysimeters were designed to simulate the high water table conditions...

High Saline Water-Table Effect on Wheat Irrigation
Hydraulic, weighing lysimeters were used for five years to measure the effect of high, saline water tables on irrigation requirement of wheat. Each year the wheat was grown with no water...

Comparation of Different Forms of Penman Equation
The research was carried out near Foggia (in Southern Italy) at 90 m above sea level and at 41° 27' N latitude, using two drainage lysimeters, filled with a silt clay soil...

Temporal Ion Balance Variation of an Irrigated Soil
The research was carried out in Southern Italy, from 1983 to 1988, using two gravity lysimeters irrigated with non saline water. The objective of this study was to test wether long-term...

Installation and Operation of Large Drainage Lysimeters on Grapes
Six large (3.05 m × 3.66 m × 1.83 m) drainage lysimeters were installed in 1984 in the middle of a 1.2 ha trickle irrigated experimental vineyard. Each was planted to two V. vinifera grapevines....

Relationship Between Lysimeter Area and Evapotranspiration (ET)
The lysimeter is an important instrument for measuring evapotranspiration (ET) of crops. It is widely used in the irrigation and drainage experimental stations in China. However, the areas...

Measurement and Analysis of Hydraulic Conductivity Variability of a Heterogeneous Aquifer
The spatial variability of hydraulic conductivity of a shallow alluvial aquifer was investigated using borehole flowmeter measurements. The study was conducted at the site of a large-scale...

Practical Technology Resulting from MADE Research
As is often the case, when theoretical research is performed, practical technology is developed in the process. This has occurred with the Macrodispersion Experiment (MADE) conducted at...

Application of Tracer Tests in Groundwater Remediation Design
Recent advances in the area of field testing for the quantification of hydraulic conductivity have resulted in improved site characterization of aquifer hydraulics and greater reliability...

Modeling and Field Experiments for Tracer Gas Tests
Numerical modeling and field experiments were used to extend the tracer gas technique for determining surface gas transfer rates to shallow bays. Two-dimensional modeling was used to investigate...

Scour Measuring and Monitoring Equipment for Bridges
The National Cooperative Highway Research program (NCHRP), through the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academy of Sciences, is currently sponsoring a research effort...

Use of Electronic Microprocessor-Based Instrumentation by the U.S. Geological Survey for Hydrologic Data Collection
The U.S. Geological Survey is acquiring a new generation of field computers and communications software to support hydrologic data-collection at field locations. The new computer hardware...

Development of Crop Coefficients Using Lysimeters
A long term record of evapotranspiration by grass as measured with the large weighing lysimeter at the University of California at Davis provided an excellent background for the initiation...

Who Pays for the Unexpected in Construction: Hi-Rise Engineers Point of View
The unexpected in high-rise construction can be traced to design criteria evolving from environmental models and probes, as well as 3 general problems dealing with quality control in contract...

Isotropic Fractionation During Air-Water Transfer of Oxygen and Nitrogen
We present empirical results that show the kinetic fractionation during gas exchange is 0.9972 ± .0002 for oxygen and 0.9987 ± .0001 for nitrogen. These values are larger than the solubility...
