A Fluorescence Technique to Measure Concentration Gradients near an Interface
A new fluorescence technique which measures the concentration profile in a mass transfer boundary layer is described. It uses a tracer whose fluorescent intensity is inversely proportional...

Tracer Gas Transfer Technique for Shallow Bays
Developmental field tests using propane and Rhodamine WT tracers were conducted to adapt the tracer gas method for use in shallow bays. A special injection box was built to prevent mixing...

From Mean Fluxes to a Detailed Experimental Investigation of the Gas Transfer Process
Three new experimental techniques are discussed which allow a much more detailed investigation of the gas transfer process than any previous techniques. Using heat as a proxy tracer for...

Methane Tracer Technique for Gas Transfer at Hydraulic Structures
Using a simple headspace gas chromatographic technique, gas transfer at several hydraulic structures were investigated. Naturally occurring methane was used as a tracer gas to measure...

Measurement of Reaeration Coefficient with the Soluble Solids Probe
The results of analytical and experimental studies are presented, showing that the proposed method for indirect determination of gas transfer coefficients at gas-liquid interfaces, based...

A Gas Chromatographic Protocol for the Measurement of Krypton Gas in Water
This paper presents the results of a study to investigate the feasibility of using a gas chromatographic (GC) technique for the measurement of non-radioactive krypton gas concentrations...

Measurement of Stream Reaeration Rate Coefficients Using Propane Gas
Three determinations of the reaeration rate coefficient, K2, were made on a 1185-m reach of the upper Assabet River in Westborough and Northborough,...

Gas Transfer Measurements on an Ice-Covered River
Wasteload allocation for existing and proposed pulp mills in the Athabasca River Basin of northern Alberta, Canada, necessitated measurement of the atmospheric reaeration rate, K2,...

Gas Transfer Velocities on Lakes Measured with Sulfur Hexafluoride
Gas transfer velocities have been determined on five lakes ranging in size from 0.13 km2 to 450 km2 using...

Lysimeters for Evapotranspiration and Environmental Measurements
Lysimeters have been used extensively in the past to provide baseline information for development, calibration, and validation of evapotranspiration methods. This proceedings, Lysimeters...

Instrumentation for SASW Testing
The Spectral-Analysis-of-Surface-Waves (SASW) method is presented. Various test setups and corresponding data reduction procedures are discussed. Several instrumentation systems have been...

In-Situ Calibration of USGS Piezometer Installations
Among the few potentially liquefiable sites around the world that have been permanently instrumented with pore-pressure transducers and accelerometers, only the Wildlife Site in the Imperial...

Report of the DEVLONICS Video Based Traffic Detector Systems (DRS-CCATS/DTMSA)
In traffic monitoring systems many detectors are in widespread use to provide the necessary information. Image and video processing is one of the most defiant newcoming technologies in...

Stereo Vision with Scan-Line Cameras for Intrusion Detection on L.R.T. Tracks
In this paper we present a new method for the detection of intrusions by means of stereo vision in order to infer 3D information from two linear sensors. This method can be used for security...

Infrared Detector Developments
Modern road transport systems rely on information from sensors to operate safely and efficiently. The sensors are typically used to provide vehicle counting, occupancy, speed measurement...

The California Inductive Loop Radio Demonstration Project
There is growing interest at both the national and international level in the application of new technologies to the highway system. While many of these new technologies are revolutionary...

Observation and Modeling of Mobile Environment
Perception of the environment in a mobile robot is a difficult task. Other moving objects and various changes in the environment and motion of the robot must be handled together. Control...

Recent Advances in Instrumentation, Data Acquisition and Testing in Soil Dynamics
This proceedings, Recent Advances in Instrumentation, Data Acquisition and Testing in Soil Dynamics, consists of papers presented at the ASCE...

A Low Pass Filter for Incident Detection
A new algorithm for automatic incident detection was developed after observing that existing algorithm performance can improve if detector data are filtered before use. The new algorithm...
