Models for Estimating Core-Cycle Rate of Penetration at Yucca Mountain, Nevada

Cropping Systems on the Delmarva Peninsula to Reduce Ground Water Contamination
A total of twelve cropping systems were simulated with the GLEAMS model for nitrate leaching. A precipitation model was developed using a Markov chain model and a gamma distribution for...

Preparation of Notification Models Using Continuous Modeling Techniques
Public health departments in many states now require that operators of collection systems notify them of discharges from combined sewer systems soon after these events occur. This allows...

COASTMAP: An Integrated System for Environmental Monitoring, Modeling and Management
The development of COASTMAP, an integrated system for environmental monitoring, modeling and management for fresh and marine waters, is presented. The system allows the user to collect,...

Detailed Measurements of Scour at Bridges
The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, has recently developed equipment and techniques for collecting detailed bathymetric and hydraulic data...

Computational Tools for Subsurface Conceptualization
Development of subsurface conceptual models for use in groundwater flow and transport modeling requires that existing data in the form of boring logs, cone penetrometer (CPT) logs, geophysical...

Effects of Spatial Data Resolution and Subarea Size on a Distributed Runoff Model
Spatial data layers of elevation, land use, and soils for a small agricultural watershed in Pennsylvania were used to study the effect of resolution degradation of raster data on the output...

Modeling the Impact of Uncertainty in Spatial Variability of Estuarine Boundary Conditions
Multi-dimensional numerical estuarine models that consider baroclinic forcing require the specification of both the water surface and the water density (salinity and temperature) at the...

Hydrodynamic Changes Associated with Navigation Traffic on the Upper Mississippi River System
Research has been conducted at the Illinois State Water Survey for the last five to seven years to collect field data from the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers to determine the extent and...

Spatial Statistics for Rainfall Forecasts Assessment
Assessments of rainfall forecasts were developed using GIS-based spatial statistical procedures applied to calibrated radar-rainfall fields in central Oklahoma. The overall objective of...

Automated Tools for Spatially Distributed Rainfall/Runoff Modeling
A watershed modeling system (WMS) has been developed to address the needs of surface water rainfall/runoff computer simulations. WMS, developed at the Engineering Computer Graphics Laboratory...

Status Report — Task Committee on GIS Models and Distributed Models of the Watershed
In recognition of the trend toward the adoption of geographic information system (GIS) technology in analyzing hydrologic problems and the obvious applications of GIS in incorporating...

Water Use Recession in San Diego Region
Water use in the San Diego region was studied using historical records collected over a period of a half century. The results indicated that the water use in this region was historically...

Measurements of Bridge-Scour Depths in Mississippi
This paper briefly summarizes 190 measured pier-scour depths collected dur ing 1942–94 at 22 selected bridges in Mississippi and presents an envelope-curve equation for the data. The envelope-curve...

Scour Processes Observed in Field Data
River channels scour and aggrade due to complex, interrelated natural processes that are dynamic over space and time. Channel scour is particularly difficult to predict for bridge crossings,...

Analysis of Long-term Supply-demand Planning of Water Resources in Taiwan
The purpose of the present study is to analyze the long-term supply-demand planning of water resources in Taiwan under future conditions. Since last decade, the Water Resources Planning...

Development of a Hydrologic Model with Both Spatially Distributed and Physically Based Capabilities
A distributed hydrologic model is developed at The Pennsylvania State University for use with rasterized data bases. The purpose of the Terrestrial Hydrologic Model or THM is to investigate...

Runoff Computation Using Spatially Distributed Terrain Parameters
A spatially distributed unit hydrograph is developed based on linear system theory applied to subareas or cells within a watershed Each cell has a unique unit response function independent...
