Real-Time Rainfall Monitoring-Prediction System
During a 4-year period (1975-1979), a comprehensive hydrometeorological research program was carried out in the Chicago metropolitan area to develop better methods of utilizing meterorological...

Torsional Vibration Tests on Embedded Footings
Torsional vibrations are of common occurrence in foundations of structures subjected to eccentric loading in a horizontal plane. Foundations of radar and communication antennae and certain...

Airborne Laser Acquisition of Cross-Section Data

Remote Sensing and Mine Subsidence
Several types of remote sensor impagery was evaluated for identifying and mapping surface subsidence resulting from underground coal mining in the Northern Anthracite Coal Basin of Pennsylvania....

Channel Siltation Determined with Side-Scan Radar
Of the new electronic means to measure water depth, side-scan sonar is unusual in that it gives not just a cross-section of the bottom but a semi-3-D picture of the bottom surface. Experienced...

Plastic Tower Solves Radar Interference
A new nonmetallic tower section has been designed to eliminate major rador interference problems caused by a steel Radar Microwave Link tower. The replacement section is composed of a...
