Convective Model Applications: Mountainous Terrain
Evaluation of precipitation in mountainous terrain has posed a vexing problem to many water-resources investigations due to the sparse and spotty network of reporting stations and gages....

Flood Elevation Limits in the Rocky Mountains
An analysis of 77,987 station-years of streamflow-gaging station data from 3,748 stations in the Rocky Mountains indicates that there is a latitude-dependent elevation limit to substantial...

Flood Damage Mitigation Efforts in a Small Mountainous Community in Jamaica
About 60 percent of the mountainous Caribbean island of Jamaica is underlain by karstic limestone. 'Sinkholes' in this limestone form the natural outlets to many surface waters. During...

Travel Time in Mountain Basins
An empirical relationship is developed for estimating travel time in high gradient stream channels with natural beds of large gravel, cobbles and random boulders and which are flowing...

Hydrologic Modelling of Extreme Flood on Small Mountainous Watersheds
Statistical and deterministic methods for extreme flood estimation were applied to Swiss alpine catchments to assess the application limits of each approach. Comparative results produced...

Sediment Entrapment by Stream Channel Vegetation
Degraded headwater streams are common in the mountainous West. They have experienced a variety of stresses from public and private uses and will require specific management consideration...

Atmospheric Radiation Balance Over Alfalfa
An experiment was carried out in an alfalfa field in Logan, Utah, U.S.A., during 8-12 September 1992, to evaluate methods and expected accuracy of continuous radiation balance component...

Sediment Deposition in Jennings Randolph Reservoir, Maryland and West Virginia
The watershed of the Jennings Randolph Reservoir covers 263 square miles of mountainous terrain in western Maryland and West Virginia. Sedimentation studies performed prior to impoundment...

Differentiation of Debris-Flow and Flash-Flood Deposits: Implications for Paleoflood Investigations
Debris flows and flash floods are common geomorphic processes in the Colorado Rocky Mountain Front Range and foothills. Usually, debris flows and flash floods are associated with excess...

Standardizing Instream Flow Requirements at Hydropower Projects in the Cascade Mountains, Washington

The Eagle Mountain Pumped Storage Hydroelectric Project

Sensitivity Analysis of Design and Operational Characteristics of Reservoirs

Initial Planning and Implementation of the Telluride Gondola Transit System
Construction on the first phase of a gondola transit system began in the summer of 1992, with the goal of connecting the town of Telluride, Colorado with the Telluride Mountain Village,...

Tunnel Boring Machine Applications—Yucca Mountain Exploratory Studies Facility

Denver International Airport Fabric Roof Design
The design of Denver's Landside Terminal Complex for the new Denver International Airport, called for some far reaching vision coupled with imaginative building technologies. Because of...

Development of the San Fernando Basin Groundwater Flow Model
This paper describes the development and calibration of the San Fernando Basin (SFB) groundwater flow model. The SFB is the largest groundwater basin in the Upper Los Angeles River Area...

Restricting Rockfalls
Predicting and controlling rockfalls has always been a high priority in Colorado, where many mountainous roads pass through hazardous rockfall areas with extensive and highly variable...

The Long Climb to Remediation
During World War II, the Rocky Mountain Arsenal in Colorado served as an Army manufacturing center for the production, then destruction, of mustard gas, napalm, cluster bomb mixtures,...

The State of Nevada Operational Seeding Program
Integration of the Nevada Operational Weather Modification Program into management of the region's water supply is a key element to meet the increasing demands placed on these...

Ferroresonance & the Snettisham Hydroelectric Project
Key system features of the Snettisham power plant in Alaska will be highlighted along with a discussion of the operational problems encountered due to a ferroresonant condition. The project...
