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...

Three-Dimensional Numerical Modeling for Transport Studies
Modeling three-dimensional transport of salinity and sediments in estuarine flows requires that hydrodynamics be accurately modeled with sufficient precision to describe the advection...

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...

Numerical Modeling of Salinity Transport in a Shallow Well-Mixed Tidal Reach
This paper is concerned primarily with the development of numerical salinity transport model using 8-point implicit finite difference scheme for predicting the salinity variation in a...

Importance of ET on Colorado River Water Quality
Salinity is a major problem in the Colorado River. About 37 percent of the salt loading is contributed by irrigated agriculture activities. Deep percolation and seepage from irrigated...

Crack Growth Stability in Ice
The mechanics of stable, time dependent crack growth as a function of geometry and increasing crack length in saline an freshwater columnar ice are examined in this paper. Experimental...

Decision Making Using the Florida Coastal Management Program—A Case Study in Apalachicola Bay, Florida
The management of Sikes Cut, a man-made inlet connecting Apalachicola Bay, Florida, and the Gulf of Mexico, has recently become a controversial issue requiring a number of regulatory agencies...

Saline Intrusion in Marine Effluent Outfalls
The paper presents an experimental investigation of saline intrusion in long sea outfalls. This intrusion is caused by the influx of sea water that may occur during periods of low discharge,...

Gravitational Circulation in a Tidal Strait
Eight months of continuous measurements of tidal current profiles with an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) were made in Carquinez Strait, California, during 1988 for the purpose...

Laboratory Methods for Preparing Low-Density Frozen Saline Soil Samples
Laboratory methods were developed for preparing low-density frozen saline soil samples with density values ranging from 85-110 lb/ft3. This range...

Numerical Modeling of the Vertical Salinity Distribution in Coastal Canals
A two dimensional (laterally averaged) numerical model of estuarine circulation has been developed for the prediction of the vertical salinity distribution in coastal canals. The model...
