Indianapolis Uses New Radar Technology to Refine Hyetographs for CSO Model and SSES Studies
Indianapolis is the first city in the country to install the French-developed technology designed by urban hydrologists to accurately measure rainfall between rain gauges. Installed in...

The Timberlake Dam Failure: A Hydrometeorological Assessment
Extremely heavy rainfall over the Timberlake basin in southwest Virginia on 23 June 1995 caused an earthen dam to fail and resulted in fatalities. The meteorological conditions are examined...

Spatial Statistics for Rainfall Forecasts Assessment
Assessments of rainfall forecasts were developed using GIS-based spatial statistical procedures applied to calibrated radar-rainfall fields in central Oklahoma. The overall objective of...

Sand Variability from Ground Penetrating Radar Data

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

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...

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...

Exploration of Ground Penetrating Radar for Railroad Tie Maintenance Scheduling
Assessment of railroad ties for replacement is currently performed by visual inspection. This paper describes a method of automated tie assessment using ground penetrating radar (GPR)...

Flash-Flood Forecasting by Using the HEC1F Model
The application of a lumped conceptual model, the well known HEC1F, for flash-flood forecasting and warning to the Venetikos river basin in Northwestern Greece, is presented. The combination...

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....

Strategy for Utilizing Radar-Based Precipitation Estimates for River Forecasting

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...

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...

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...
