Agricultural Salinity—Nature, Extent & Concerns
This paper presents an overview on the nature, extent and concerns of agricultural salinity problems. The problem of salinity has extended beyond the farmlands, and the practice of saline...

Effects of Salts on Soils and Plants
Salinity is a major constraint to crop production in many irrigated lands of the world. Management practices are needed for the control of soil and water salinity. The development of appropriate...

Root Zone Salinity Control—Leaching Fraction, Spatial Variability
This paper gives an overview of three chapters that are contained in a new ASCE manual called Agricultural Salinity Assessment and Management Manual. Chapter 9 is entitled Field Sampling...

Land Drainage and Estuarine Salinity Response
An investigation is being conducted to (1) quantify the short-term effects of freshwater agricultural drainage on salinity in a tidal creek and (2) evaluate the off-site effects of water-control...

Effects of Runoff Changes and Sea Level Rise on Salinity in the Delaware River Estuary
The objective of this study is to investigate changes in the spatial distribution of salt in the Delaware Estuary resulting from climate induced changes in freshwater inflows and in the...

Case Study in the Rehabilitation of a Pumped/Storage Installation - Salina Powerhouse Grand River Dam Authority
This paper presents a specific case study in the rehabilitation of a pump/turbine for the Grand River Dam Authority at its Salina plant. The study addresses problems such as cavitation...

The Effects of Freshwater Canal Discharges on Salinities in Biscayne National Park

Benefits and Risks of Artificial Recharge of Saline Aquifers
Artificial recharge of saline aquifers by deep well injection of treated effluents is attractive, as it provides a solution to an environmental problem, and possibly creates groundwater...

Molluscan Communities of Laguna Madre, Texas: Man's Impact
The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that due to human intervention the two parts of the Laguna Madre now differ in molluscan species composition and the most heavily-impacted...

A Prospective Study of the Oyster-Farming in Senegal, West Africa
Various coastal lagoons and estuaries of the region have become oversaline as a consequence of the persistant drought across Sahel. We have monitored the possible consequences of hight...

Salinity Intrusion Predictions by Analytical Expressions
Salinity intrusion in estuaries has traditionally been predicted by use of physical models and more recently by numerical models. Analytic techniques have seen quite limited use because...

Salinity Intrusion in Louisiana Coastal Canals
Field data of the salinity intrusion in three Louisiana coastal canals were presented. In these canals, the mixing state can be categorized as, in general, well mixing at the Gulf side...

Comparing Two Estuarine Mass Transport Models
Two simplified mass transport models for partially mixed estuaries were evaluated using data from the Patuxent and James Estuaries. The first of the models was developed by Pritchard in...

Optimum Irrigation Under Saline Conditions
A dynamic production function for cotton is estimated. Optimal irrigation volumes, timing, and qualities are calculated using dynamic programming. Optimal water quantities are sensitive...

Development of a Self-Heating Thermal Probe for Saline Permafrost
Geothermal modelling and prototype testing are described to support the development of a self-heating thermal probe. This has application for in-situ determination of the amount of unfrozen...
