Plot and Small Watershed Scale Modeling of Infiltration and Runoff on a Semiarid Grassland Using Distributed Green and Ampt Infiltration Parameters

Surface Irrigation
Surface irrigation refers to a large group of irrigation methods in which water is distributed by gravity over the surface of the field. Water is typically introduced at the high point...

Simulating Evapotranspiration on Semi-Arid Rangelands
Detailed simulations of the surface energy balance using the Simultaneous Heat and Water (SHAW) model were compared with measurements collected at the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed...

A Regional Management Plan to Improve Water Quality in the Grassland Basin
Seven irrigation and drainage districts on the west side of Californias San Joaquin Valley have formed a regional drainage entity to implement programs that will reduce the load of selenium...

Economic Issues Regarding Water Quality Objectives in the Grassland Basin
A conceptual framework is presented for evaluating the potential costs and benefits of water quality objectives in the Grassland Basin. The investments and expenditures required to achieve...

Adapting Water Resources of the Canadian Prairies under the impact of Climatic Warming
Given that future droughts could become more frequent and more severe because of climatic warming, this paper discusses some strategies to manage and to develop the water resources of...

Predicting Effects of Modifying Tussock Grassland
Measurements of rainfall, drainage, and weight change of a 6 m2 surface area cylindrical lysimeter containing nine snow tussocks (Chionochloa rigida)...

Use of Lysimeters to Measure Fog Interception in Tussock Grassland New Zealand
Previous studies of the water balance of single Tussock plants in small non-weighing lysimeters over a range of elevations in east-central Otago province suggest that tussock grassland...

Rangeland Evaluation of WEPP Hydrology
The hydrology component of the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) utilizes the W.H. Green and G.A. Ampt infiltration equation to simulate the rate and volume of excess rainfall. Excess...

Snow Fencing to Increase Streamflow on Rangelands
Snow deposition and water yield were increased 55% and 127% respectively, and duration of surface runoff was lengthened 17 days in response to snow fencing a sagebrush-covered watershed...

Application of RUSLE to Rangelands
The Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) has been revised to more accurately estimate soil loss from both crop and rangeland areas. Major revisions affecting rangeland soil loss estimates...

Influence of Tillage on Hydrology in Western Iowa
USDA Agricultural Research Service has operated four field-sized watersheds in the deep loess soils of western Iowa since 1964. Throughout this time, two watersheds were cropped to corn...

Engineering a Corporate Statement
Frito-Lay National Headquarters, Plano, Tex., occupies a 218 acre site in a corporate office park that had been a cow pasture. It was unusual in having mature trees and a natural watercourse...

Cover Allocation in Rangeland Watershed Management (A Review)
The importance of cover on rangelands has been recognized for many years. This paper reviews the importance of cover in terms of infiltration and erosion and provides management recommendations...
