Rainfall Infiltration-Induced Landslides

Estimating Slope Stability Reduction due to Rain Infiltration Mounding
(Originally published in J. of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering 2006, 132(9), 1219-1228.)...

Estimation of Curve Numbers for Concrete and Asphalt
All impervious surfaces are assigned a Curve Number (CN) of 98. However, no field or experimental evidence exists (to our knowledge) that shows why the impervious CN was assigned a value...

Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) Prediction of Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO) Events and Water Quality in Milwaukee, WI

Basin Response Time: Potential Hydrologic Basin Handprint
Hydrologic lead time is an important factor in many water resources engineering applications. The determination of the response time of a watershed to runoff-producing rainfall is the...

Practical Applications of Gage-Adjusted Radar–Rainfall Estimates
(no paper) It is radar's estimates of rainfall at a specific location that tends to disappoint. On the other hand, the strength of rain gage observations is in estimating rainfall at a...

Fuzzy Rule-Based Forecasting of Extreme Rainfall Probability Conditioned on Sea Surface Temperature
(No paper) The recent El Nino event demonstrated the importance of sea-surface temperature on rainfall anomalies. The purpose of this paper is to develop a methodology to forecast extreme...
