This Committee report, Hydroelectric Pumped Storage Technology: International Experience, was prepared by the Task Committee on Pumped Storage,...

Energy-Based Modeling of High Damping Rubber Seismic Isolators for Dynamic Analysis

Application of Vertical Turbulence Closure Schemes in the Chesapeake Bay Circulation Model — A Comparative Study

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...

An Update on Surface Renewal Estimation of Evapotranspiration
The surface renewal (SR) method for estimating sensible heat flux density (H) has been shown to give good estimates of evapotranspiratiou (ET) when used in an energy balance equation with...

Impact of Sedimentation Caused by Runoff
As water is pumped into a reservoir, sedimentation caused by runoff can be an important factor in the reservoir's storage capacity. This report discusses various studies conducted...

Optimizing Municipal Wastewater Treatment in Cold Climates: Scale, Process and Benefits
Although conventional wisdom demands large, centralized facilities for municipal sewage treatment, much has recently been made of the potential of low tech, decentralized systems for wastewater...

Protecting Drinking Water: Rapid Detection of Human Fecal Contamination, Injured, and Non-Culturable Pathogenic Microbes in Water Systems
The rapid, potentially-automatable extraction of filter retentates has allowed quantitative detection of the unique biomarker for human fecal contamination, coprostanol, and the signature...

Application of Regime Theory in Practice: A Case Study
Alluvial channels are known to adjust their slope, width, depth and velocity to achieve stable conditions given a supply of water and sediment. Scientific investigations of stable channels...

Identifying Potential Trophic Relationships and Bioaccumulation Pathways between Fish and Invertebrates
A large ocean monitoring database was used to quantify relationships between demersal fish, epibenthic macroinvertebrates (EMI) and benthic infauna that provide potential pathways for...

Direct Sizing of Small Stormwater Pump Stations
Pump stations are components of stormwater drainage systems that remove collected storm runoff from locations where drainage by gravity is not feasible. Usually pump stations will operate...

Adhesion Kinetics of Fuel Oil #6 and Oil-in-Water Emulsions on Marine Sediments under Turbulent Mixing Conditions
Oil spilled in the marine environment is subject to a great variety of physical, chemical and biological processes, which determine its ultimate fate in the aquatic environment. Many of...
