Survey of GIS Applications in Surface Water Hydrology
Geographic information systems (GIS), computerized tools for management and manipulation of spatially referenced data, are increasingly being used for engineering analysis and design of...

Artificial Neural Networks as Unit Hydrograph Applications
A simple artificial neural network is shown to have the same structure as the application of a unit hydrograph. An artificial neural network representing such an application was constructed,...

Computerized Maintenance Planning for Agency-Managed Irrigation Systems
Computerized maintenance planning has been established to facilitate: (1) preparation of the 'Catch-Up' Maintenance Plan using the field data collected while conducting the Diagnostic...

The Integration and Management of Ground- and Surface-Water Resources for Drought Response in New Castle County, Delaware
This paper reports on a program for the integration and management of ground- and surface-water resources for drought management purposes in the southeastern area of the Commonwealth of...

U.S. Geological Survey Bedload Sampling Policy
During the late 1960's, the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Water Resources Division (WRD) developed the Helley-Smith bedload sampler. Since then, the USGS and the Technical Committee...

Plans for a Sensitivity Analysis of Bridge-Scour Computations
Plans for an analysis of the sensitivity of Level 2 bridge-scour computations are described. Cross-section data from 15 bridge sites in Texas are modified to reflect four levels of field...

Sediment Disposal and Transport in Central SF Bay
The relocation of dredged material from navigation channels in the Francisco Bay is crucial to the movement of deep-draft shipping and shallow-draft recreational vessels. The margins of...

Debris Flows and Mass Wasting in Volcanic Torrents
Observation of debris flow and topographic survey for mass wasting in the volcanic torrents clarified that (1) mass wasting processes such as rock fall from the side-wall and toppling...

Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler for Inlet Current Measurements
A BroadBand Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (BroadBand ADCP) was used to survey tidal currents at Shinnecock and Moriches Inlets, Long Island, NY. Measurements were made remotely form...

Estimating Bridge Scour in New York from Historical U.S. Geological Survey Streamflow Measurements
Historical streamflow measurements by the U.S. Geological Survey an bridge-inspection reports by the New York State Department of Transportation are being used to estimate scour at 31...

Instrumentation for Detailed Bridge-Scour Measurements
A portable instrumentation system is being developed to obtain channel bathymetry during floods for detailed bridge-scour measurements. Portable scour measuring systems have four components:...

A Culvert Analysis Program for Indirect Measurement of Discharge
A program based on the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) methods for indirectly computing peak discharges through culverts allows users to employ input data formats used by the water surface...

Depth of Cover Surveys for Waterway Crossings
The majority of pipelines cross at least one waterway of some type, especially the interstate lines which from start to end cross numerous bayous, canals and major rivers. These waterways...

Identifying Transportation Control Measures: a Straighforward Approach to Identifying Transportation Control Measures to Address Concerns with Air Quality
The 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) exemplify society's increasing environmental concern. Regions not attaining the CAAA requirements must develop methods to reduce the pollution....

Trip Rates Adjustments for Impact Assessment and Congestion Management
Evidence that all urban trips are not equal and that trip rates need to be adjusted to reflect the differential contribution of trips to traffic loads and congestion is presented. Adjustments...

Traffic Accident Analysis System
While statistical data on traffic accidents are invaluable in devising effective traffic safety measures, the number of data items and samples are vast and they must be processed and edited...

Some Problems Encountered in the Design and Construction of Hydroelectric Projects

Evaluation of Runway Roughness for Fighter Jets
A new roughness evaluation procedure is needed, especially, when dealing with modern fighter jets. To this end, a comprehensive pilot attitude survey was conducted in Israel in order to...
