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...

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....

Directional Spectra from Air- and Spaceborne Radar

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

Hydrographic Surveying Turns to Electronics
Traditional technique for measuring water depth is to use a lead-weighted line. The tag line, stretched along the water surface so soundings are made in orderly fashion, can be dangerous....

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...
