Using Spaceborne Imaging Radar to Identify Lake Water Resources on the Alaskan North Slope

Developing Parameters for a Quasi-Distributed Runoff Model Using GIS
The widespread availability of radar precipitation data is driving rainfall-runoff modeling from lumped-input to distributed-input methods. As a consequence, model parameterization is...

Coastal Evolution Downdrift of St. Joseph Harbor on Lake Michigan

Distributed Parameter Hydrologic Modeling and NEXRAD for River Forecasting: Scale Issues Facing the National Weather Service
With the advent of NEXRAD (Next Generation RADar), the National Weather Service has the opportunity to move from current lumped parameter modeling to more of a distributed parameter hydrologic...

Application of Ground-Penetrating Radar to a Site Investigation Involving Shallow Faults

Clark's Unit Hydrograph Method-50th Anniversary

Observations of Wind Wave Growth by ERS-1 SAR
Spatial variations of ocean waves can be observed from space-borne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of ocean surface. For a steady offshore wind, the growth of wind wave from an upwind...

Conceptual Design of a Monitoring System for Maglev Guideways
The state-of-the-art in nondestructive testing (NDT) technology has advanced significantly over the past fifteen years and has reached a stage where continuous monitoring of structures...

Highway Speed Radar for Pavement and Bridge Deck Evaluation
Radar has been developed as an economical alternative evaluating pavement layer properties and estimating quantities of deterioration in bridge decks. These highway applications are based...

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....

Scour Inspection Using Ground Penetrating Radar
This paper examines the capabilities of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for river bed scour inspection based on a study carried out by Clarkson University, Potsdam, New York in association...

Using Neural Network to Identify Pavement Structure Based on Radar Output
Knowledge of asphaltic layer thickness and structure are important in many areas of pavement management. Accurate thickness and structure measurements are needed throughout the roadway...

Application of Radar Imaging Techniques to Concrete
Wideband radar imaging techniques have the potential of being a powerful tool in detecting steel reinforcing bars and delaminations inside concrete. The success of the method as a nondestructive...

Ground Penetrating Radar: Images of Subsurface Characteristics
Ground penetrating radar has not been widely used for subsurface exploration in Civil Engineering. This paper describes the experimental setup used to explore ground penetrating radar...

Non-Destructive Remote Sensing of Hazardous Waste Sites
This paper describes how the non-contact, nondestructive, remote sensing techniques, of Computer Enhanced Infrared Thermography and Ground Penetrating Radar, may be used to detect buried...

Strategy for Utilizing Radar-Based Precipitation Estimates for River Forecasting

Evaluation of Historical Scour at Selected Stream Crossings in Indiana
Geophysical data were collected by means of ground-penetrating radar and tuned transducer systems to estimate the historical scour at ten bridges in Indiana. These geophysical data were...

Aircraft Noise Monitoring at Denver International Airport
This paper describes design of the noise monitoring system for Denver International Airport. When the airport opens in 1993, the system must monitor compliance with two standards established...

Importance of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Satellite to Hydrological Investigations
Rainfall over the global tropics is crucial to the global hydrological cycle and to water resources in most developing countries. Its magnitude and variations are presently poorly known....
