An Annual Water Balance for a Surface Mining Overburden Waste Embankment
The embankment contained a volume of 257 thousand cubic yards and resulted from a phosphate surface mining operation in southeastern Idaho. The elevation of the embankment is about 7500...

Predicting Forest Snow Water Equivalent
In California, the snowpack of the Sierra Nevada provides more than one-third of the state's water needs. Regression models used to forecast this supply do not include measurement...

Snow Management Practices for Increasing Soil Water Reserves in Frozen Prairie Soils
It is demonstrated that stubble management practices can be used to increase snowcover accumulations in the Canadian Prairies. However, the potential for significant increasing soil water...

Longterm Changes of Tidal Regime in the German Bight (North Sea)
Sea level changes are caused by astronomical tides (periodical changes), meteorological, geological and oceanographical conditions, vertical movements of the earth's crust...

Microcomputer Applications in Flood Management
Historically Salt Lake City has been subject to flooding from spring snow melt runoffs. Even though the volume and the rate of runoffs were similar during both years, the 1984 runoff created...

Salt Lake City Flood Experiences
Salt Lake City experienced snowmelt floods during 1983 and 1984. Peaks during these years were very high with many historic records being set in both years. Different and unique problems...

Roadway Salting Effects on Snowmelt Water Quality

CREST: A Plan to Augment the Colorado River

Testing for Salt Damage
Salts used to melt snow can contribute to deterioration of concrete structures. Various tests were used to determine the extent of damage in two structures in Rochester, N.Y. One is an...

Snowmelt Runoff Models for Water Supply Forecasting
Remote sensing is changing the approach in snowmelt runoff modelling. Instead of a simulated snow cover, the areal extent of the real snow cover can be periodically evaluated. Adaptation...

Forecasting and Warning for Mt. St. Helens Streams
The eruption of Mt. St. Helens in southern Washington on May 18, 1980, created great devastation both by the blast itself and by mudflows generated by melting snow and ice. Several hydrologic...
