Rocky Mountain Project Seepage Cutoff in Solutioned Limestone
The right abutment of the main closure dam for the Rocky Mountain Project required extensive treatment of deeply weathered shale and solutioned limestone to assure control of seepage and...

Rocky Mountain Project Power Tunnel Filling Test
The Rocky Mountain Project, a pumped storage development located in NW Georgia, is owned jointly by Oglethorpe Power Corporation and Georgia Power Company. Initial construction included...

Rocky Mountain Project—Probable Maximum Floods
Probable maximum floods (PMF's) were estimated for use in designing spillways for the lower reservoir main dam and two auxiliary pool dams at the Rocky Mountain pumped-storage...

Rocky Mountain Project Conceptual Design of Upper Reservoir
The 9300 acre-foot upper reservoir for the Rocky Mountain Project will be formed by an 80-ft high ring dam with a crest length of 12,800 feet. Sandstone and shale of the Pottsville formation...

Rocky Mountain Project—Overview
The Rocky Mountain Project, in Northwest Georgia, will be a three unit hydroelectric pumped-storage project with 850,000 kW installed in an above ground powerhouse. The gross water volumes...

A Rocky Mountain Project Intake/Discharge Channel Flow Simulation Study
A two-dimensional depth-integrated finite element flow model was applied to evaluate pumping and generating flow conditions at the Rocky Mountain Project powerhouse intake/discharge channel....

Rocky Mountain Pump-Turbines and Related Mechanical Equipment
The Rocky Mountain powerplant will have three reversible, single stage, vertical shaft pump-turbine units, each having a maximum output of 321 MW generating and a maximum pumping capacity...

Hydraulic Roughness and Sediment Yield in Wheel Ruts on Forest Roads
Clear water flow and sediment yield from simulated wheel ruts in a forest road were measured at five different sites in the Northern Rocky Mountains. These measurements provided information...

Largest and Characteristic Earthquakes in the U.S. East of the Rocky Mountains
A new statistical procedure is proposed for the estimation of maximum earthquake magnitude M in intraplate regions. Starting from a historical catalog of events and a seismotectonic classification...

The Area of Most Recent Volcanism Near Yucca Mountain, Nevada: Implications for Volcanic Risk Assessment
The proposed area of most recent volcanism (AMRV) includes all known post-6 Ma volcanic complexes in the Yucca Mountain area and encompasses the four volcanic centers in Crater Flat, the...

Ute Mountain Ute Indian Water Rights Settlement of 1988
The Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, located in the southwest corner of Colorado, agreed to a negotiated settlement of Winters Doctrine Water Rights rather than pursuing litigation. The Tribe will...

High-Country Hydro
The North Fork Stanislaus River Hydroelectric Development Project is a new 205 MW $267 million hydro plant in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Completed in 1989, the project was the largest...

Glacial Icemelt in the Wind River Range, Wyoming
The Wind River Range of Wyoming contains the greatest concentration of glaciers in the American Rocky Mountains with two of the larger glaciers being Dinwoody and Gannett Glaciers. This...

Debris Flow Potential and Sediment Yield Analysis Following Wild Fire Events in Mountainous Terrain
The Pacific Southwest Inter-Agency Committee (PSIAC) 1968 Sediment Yield Rating Model provides a method to rapidly assess any increase in potential sediment yields following a wild fire...

Spectral Analysis of Annual Time Series of Mountain Precipitation
In this paper we examine the statistical moments of long record, annual, precipitation time series for 19 west facing stations along the Wasatch Front, northern Utah. The mean, variance,...

Precipitation Simulation Model for Mountainous Areas
This study investigated the use of the Markov chain-mixed exponential (MCME) model as a means of obtaining synthetic daily precipitation amounts at a site, based on knowledge of the mean...

Way Against Debris Flows at China's Mountain Towns
For important protected objectives, the measures against debris flow in mountain towns should ensure all-round reliability and adopt a comprehensive system of engineering projects combined...

Mountain Glaciers - An Overview with Emphasis on Alaska

Effects of a Mountain on the Motion of a Layer of Cold Air

Pilot Bore Pays Off
The primary purpose of tunneling through Cumberland Mountain is to ease the 18,000 vehicle per day traffic through the rugged terrain that was a major transportation route when Daniel...
