Freshwater Diversion to Reduce Estuarine Salinities

Optimization of Managed Runoff to the St. Lucie Estuary

Impact of the C&D Canal on the Hydrodynamics

Negatively-Buoyant Thermal-Saline Plume Experiment

Galveston Bay 3D Model Study, Channel Deepening, Circulation, and Salinity Results
Galveston Bay in Texas contains the Houston Ship Channel connecting the port of Houston to the Gulf of Mexico. Due to navigational hazards, the Galveston District Corps of Engineers began...

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

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

Watershed Effects on the Value of Marshes to Fisheries
Watershed size and rainfall patterns are among the factors that influence the extent to which fishery species use estuarine marshes as nurseries. We examined three Texas bays with different...

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...

Salinity-Colorado River Water Quality Crisis
The major concern cited is excessive salt concentrations caused by salt loading of return flows to the Colorado River. Salinity levels measured as milligrams per liter (mg/L) are monitored...

Study of the Circulatory and Salinity Changes in Galveston Bay, Texas by Using a Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamic and Transport Model
The effects of tides and freshwater inflows on the circulation and salinity changes in Galveston Bay are investigated numerically by using three-dimensional hydrodynamic and transport...

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...

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...

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

How Federal Mandates to Protect Wetland Resource Value Necessitates a Multi-Agency Approach to Balance that with Other National Economic Goals
A national controversy focused on wetlands exists because of the complex problem of balancing federal mandated protection of wetland values and needs to pursue national economic growth....
