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...

Estimation of the Probable Maximum Rainfall and Snowmelt Floods Via Physically Based Model of River Runoff Generation
Disastrous floods can be caused by unusual combinations of hydrometeorological factors and river basin conditions that have not been observed during a long observation period. The physically-based...

Debris Flow Events at Mountainous Creeks near Santiago, Chile- Hydrologic Analysis
One of the most important aspects in relation to peak flows magnitudes generated in mountainous catchments at the western side of the Andes facing the city of Santiago, Chile (latitude...

Stormwater Management Plan Updated for Climate System Changes
When large watershed stormwater management plans are updated, climate system change factors due to global warming effects should be considered. Climate system changes may cause changes...

Draining Himalayan Glacial Lakes Before They Burst
Glacial lakes are a common feature of the Himalaya in general and the Khumbu Himal region of eastern Nepal in particular. Some of these glacial lakes are naturally unstable because of...

A Stormwater Management Plan
Part 2 of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Permit requires both sampling and analysis of stormwater and the control of illicit discharges to stormwater...

Rainfall-Runoff Modeling for Watershed Stormwater Management
In the design of watershed stormwater management plans used for land development, the Pennsylvania State Runoff Model (PSRM) presents upstream subbasin flows that contribute to the peak...

Identification of a General Linear Model for Reservoir Inflows Forecasting
General linear stochastic models represent a valuable alternative to conceptual models in order to describe runoff generating mechanisms in a drainage basin. In regions such as Quebec,...

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...

Automated Tools for Spatially Distributed Rainfall/Runoff Modeling
A watershed modeling system (WMS) has been developed to address the needs of surface water rainfall/runoff computer simulations. WMS, developed at the Engineering Computer Graphics Laboratory...

Flood Destruction and Abatement in China
About two-thirds of Chinese territory experiences flood disas ters of different types and varied degrees. The flood disasters in the east half of China are mainly caused by excessive rainfalls...

The Analysis of the Failure of the Minte Stream Culvert
A persistent and continuous rainfall that lasted for more than 30 hours on May 6–7, 1995, caused the sudden failure of an embank ment on the main road between Puerto Varas and Ensenada,...

Immobilization of Metals and Solids Transported in Urban Pavement Runoff
Urban areas in North America continue to grow in size and population. With this growth is an increase in automotive traffic, roadway pavement and deleterious anthropogenic constituents....

Effective Management and Control of Urban Flood Disasters in West Africa
This paper begins by examining the characteristics of the impacts of flood disasters in the urban centers of West Africa. The paper then examines some significant examples of individual...

Hydrologic Modeling System
The Hydrologic Modeling System (HEC-HMS) is new-generation software for precipitation-runoff simulation that will supersede the Hydrologic Engineering Centefs HEC-l program. Technical...
