Optimization of Managed Runoff to the St. Lucie Estuary

Three Dimensional Modeling of Circulation and Salinity in Mt. Hope Bay and the Lower Taunton River
A three dimensional, vertical sigma coordinate hydrodynamic model was developed and applied to Mt. Hope Bay and the lower Taunton River. The model solves the conservation of water mass,...

Differential Dynamic Programming for Estuarine Management
Differential dynamic programming (DDP) is applied to solve the estuarine management problem to determine the optimal amount of freshwater inflows into bays and estuaries in order to maximize...

Influence of Sikes Cut on Apalachicola Bay, FL; A Preliminary Analysis from a Three-Dimensional Perspective

Salinity and Dissolved-Oxygen Dynamics in a Wind-Driven Estuary
Water levels, near-surface and near-bottom salinities, and near-surface and near-bottom dissolved-oxygen concentrations were measured continuously in the Pamlico River estuary, North Carolina,...

Stochastic Optimal Control for Determination of Freshwater Inflows to Estuaries
The objective of the research is to develop estuarine system management models based upon discrete-time stochastic optimal control. An analytical feedback control law is given. The control...

Object-oriented Model of Colorado River Salinity
A salt balance is incorporated into an object-oriented river-basin model and applied to the Colorado River. The model simulates seasonal variations in the basin's water balance and employs...

Salinity Variations in Two Louisiana Estuaries
Salinity variations, on a variety of time scales, are described for two shallow bar-built estuaries of the Louisiana coast. Tidal, sub-tidal, and seasonal scale variations are important...

Selection of Superior Planting Stocks and Development of Regeneration Techniques for Coastal Restoration: A Pilot Study
There is an increasing demand in the U.S. for wetland plants to be used for marsh restoration and coastal stability projects. However, physiologically adapted wetland plants suitable for...

The Use of Geographic Information Systems and Models on Personal Computer and Workstation Platforms, in the Development of a Wellhead Protection Program, Salinas Valley, California
The Salinas Valley is located on California's Central Coast. The ground water basin supports 850,000,000 M2 of irrigated crops which have a market...

Enhanced Recharge and Conjunctive Use in Groundwater Management Salinas Valley, California

USDA Actions to Replace Wildlife Values Lost Due to Irrigation Improvements — Colorado Salinity Program
USDA is challenged by the conflict generated within the environmental community between advocates wanting irrigation water conservation and water quality improvements and those wanting...

Galveston Bay 3-D Model Study Channel Deepening Circulation and Salinity Results
The effects of deepening the Houston Ship Channel through the Galveston Bay estuary are predicted using the 3-D finite element numerical model RMA10-WES. The primary concern is the effect...

Predicting Water Quality at Municipal Water Intakes—Part I: Application to the Contra Costa Canal Intake
The factors affecting water quality at a municipal surface water intake in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta are discussed. A model is developed that successfully predicts the seawater...

Accounting for Antecedent Conditions in Seawater Intrusion Modeling—Applications for the San Francisco Bay-Delta
A new method for predicting salinity variation with outflow is developed for the western Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta in northern California. A simple routing equation is used to calculate...

Patos Lagoon
Patos Lagoon is one of South America's most important lagoonal environments. There is a complex of basins, controlled by the coastal lagoons Mirim and Patos, whose salinity regime is influenced...
