Radar Rainfall Measurements and Runoff Forecasting
Rainfall varies in intensity and depth over time and space. Weather radar systems can provide estimates of rainfall at points in space with nearly continuous coverage with respect to time....

New Clues to PMP
Great changes have occurred in meterology in the last two decades. Formerly, weather data were available for forecasting and climatological analyses only at points - at weather stations....

From Guesswork to Guarantee?
Maser describes a project to determine the effectiveness of radar and infrared thermography in detecting deterioration of asphalt overlaid bridge decks. The project, sponsored by the New...

The Effect of Seeding on Convective Cells in West Texas
The effect on convective cells of randomized seeding for dynamic effects in the Southwest Cooperative Program is addressed. Analysis of three-dimensional, volume-scan, radar data using...

Utilization of Ground Penetrating Radar to Conduct Sediment Surveys of Frozen Reservoirs
The ground penetrating radar (GPR) system consisted of a control unit, antenna, recorder, a power supply on a sled towed by a snowmobile. A 120 Mhz antenna was utilized and gave excellent...

A Regional Program on Coastal Monitoring and Management of Mangrove in Brazil
The results presented in this paper correspond to a synthesis of the evaluation of mangrove in the Brazilian coastal zone, based on calculations over radar imagery generated by RADAMBRASIL...

Measurements of Near-Survface Current in Inlets and Bays with Synthetic Aperture Radar
Synthetic Aperture Radar, SAR, provides images of land and ocean surfaces irrespective of solar illumination, and practically under all weather conditions. Developed originally for land...

The Estimation of Rainfall for Flood Forecasting Using Radar and Rain Gage Data
The use of radar-rainfall data in combination with rain gage measurements may improve rainfall estimates over those based on either form of measurement alone. A set of rainfall analysis...

Storm Dynamics in the Lake Ontario Region
A program package, RAINPAK, was written to develop appropriate rainfall input, based on concepts of the physical processes behind the temporal and spatial distribution of storm rainfall...

Hydrologic Modeling Using Radar-Rainfall Imagery
A flash flood forecasting system is being developed which has three main elements: 1) high resolution estimation of rainfall in time and space using radar and ground-based gages; 2) computer...

Grouting a Sand Dam
Hardy Dam, owned by Michigan's Consumers Power Co., was constructed in 1929 by dumping sand from railroad trestles for an embankment to support a concrete core wall. Some...

An HF CODAR Doppler Transponder System
Gulf Oil Exploration and Production Company completed two major phases in the development of a high frequency (HF) CODAR Doppler transponder system for measuring sea ice motion. The system...

Rainfall Results of the Florida Area Cumulus Experiment and Their Implications for Drought Problems in the South
Evidence is presented for treatment effects during the Florida Area Cumulus Experiment (FACE). The sizes of the apparent effects are a function of scale, largest for the cell scale and...

Texas Hiplex—A Summary
Beginning in 1974, a new, concerted effort was undertaken by the Federal government, in cooperation with various High Plains states - including Texas - and local entities, to gain a better...

Radar for Flood Forecasting-Reservoir Operation
The A&M Watershed Model will soon be capable of improved weather radar supported real-time flood forecasting and reservoir operations. Improvement in the scheme for inputting radar...

The Application of Seismic Reflection Profiling in Determining Subsurface Alluvial Stratigraphy

Weather Modification Made Easy — A Cookbook Recipe
This paper takes a cookbook approach to the development of a well organized and efficient cloud seeding endeavor, by discussing seven important items necessary for a successful program....
