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...

Optimization of Freshwater Inflow to Estuaries
This paper presents a methodology that can be used for determining the optimal freshwater inflows into bays and estuaries for the purpose of balancing freshwater demands with the harvest...

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...

Three-Dimensional Numerical Modeling of Tidal Circulation and Salinity Transport in James River Estuary
Tidal circulation and salinity transport in the James River and Hampton Roads estuarine system has been simulated using a three-dimensional curvilinear-grid hydrodynamic model, CH3D, developed...

Computer Simulation of Weeks Bay, Alabama
Results of a two-dimensional, depth averaged (WIFM) mathematical model for Weeks Bay, Alabama under equatorial tide conditions are presented. Comparisons of model predicted hydrodynamic...

Multi-Dimensional Modeling of Hydrodynamics and Salinity in San Francisco Bay
This paper presents a modeling study of salt intrusion into San Francisco Bay that used a three dimensional finite element model capable of different approximation levels in different...

The Colorado River Salinity Program—An Overall Perspective
Economic losses resulting from increases in salinity in the Colorado River system were estimated to be $311 million annually in 1986. As a result of protests by Mexico to the United States...

The USDA Colorado River Salinity Control Program
Approximately 37 percent of the salt contribution in the Colorado River can be attributed to irrigation activities in the river basin. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA),...

Blending Saline and Non-Saline Waters Reduces Water Usable for Crop Production
The purpose of this paper is to provide theoretical and conceptual evidence to show that water quality protection programs which dispose of agricultural drainage waters through blending...

Groundwater Depletion and Salinity in Yazd, Iran
The central Iranian plateau contains part or all of five provinces and covers more than a third of the total area of Iran (Figure 3). This area has one of the most unfavorable hydrologic...
