The nuclear power plant on Daya Bay is the largest nuclear power plant under construction in China. In order to obtain reliable data about the possibility of blocking of the water intake...

Geomorphic Analysis for Enhancement and Restoration of the Tijuana Estuary, California
Geomorphic analysis and results of field investigations in the Tijuana Estuary, California, are used in developing the rationale for an enhancement and restoration design that increases...

Roadside Associated Disturbance on Coastal Dunes
Park Road 100 extends through the developed southernmost 8 km of South Padre Island and continues northward for 11.5 km through the Secondary Dunes and Vegetated Flats (SDVF) zone of the...

Success of Dune Restoration After Removal of UXO
The discovery of unexploded ordnance (UXO) at South Beach, a popular recreational beach on Martha's Vineyard island in Massachusetts, necessitated that the area be declared...

San Diego Bay Eeelgrass Planting and Mitigation
This paper will discuss the Navy's efforts to mitigate for the loss of eelgrass and creation of an eelgrass bank to compensate for possible future losses in San Diego Bay....

Resilience of Seacoast Bluestem Barrier Island Communities
Natural disturbance is an important force in population and community dynamics and barrier islands are paradigms of disturbance dominated ecosystems. They are formed, shaped, and moved...

Improving the Assessment of Instream Flow Needs for Fish Populations
Instream flow requirements are one of the most frequent and most costly environmental issues that must be addressed in developing hydroelectric projects. Existing assessment methods for...

Twin Falls Mitigation Plan: Long Term Monitoring of Fish Populations
A fishery monitoring and enhancement plan has been worked out for the Twin Falls Hydroelectric Project which diverts water from a one mile reach of the South Fork Snoqualmie River in Washington...

Fish Entrainment and Mortality at the French Landing Hydroelectric Powerhouse
This case study explains the fish mortality study performed and results obtained at an existing hydroelectric powerhouse in Michigan. Undertaken in 1989 and 1990, this study provides data...

Large, Monolithic, Weighing Lysimeters
Monolithic lysimeters preserve existing vegetation and soil properties that can be destroyed by excavation and filling. Site preparation for constructing large, monolithic lysimeters includes...

Water Balance Lysimetry at a Nuclear Waste Site
Lysimeters measure effects of soil, vegetation, and climate on water balance and groundwater recharge at a nuclear-waste site in arid-southcentral Washington State, USA. Data from 4 lysimeter...

Environmental Requirements of Lysimeters
Some of the more common environmental problems affecting measurement of evapotranspiration (Et) with lysimeters are discussed, including deviation...

Grass Reference Measurements in Italy
In this paper, the description and the use of drainage and weighing lysimeters installed in different Italian locations are reported together with the results of the researches about the...

Water Table Lysimeter Data Interpretation
Lysimeters were used to estimate seasonal water use of wet meadows and phreatophytes in northern Utah, southeast Idaho and southwest Wyoming (1983-1990). Twelve water table lysimeters...

Alfalfa ET Measurements with Drainage Lysimeters
Drainage lysimeters were used to measure alfalfa evapotranspiration (ET) under a line-gradient sprinkler system in the high-elevation desert conditions of northwest New Mexico. The lysimeters...

Comparation of Different Forms of Penman Equation
The research was carried out near Foggia (in Southern Italy) at 90 m above sea level and at 41° 27' N latitude, using two drainage lysimeters, filled with a silt clay soil...

Use of Lysimetric Measurements for Designing Major Irrigation Systems in the USSR
The bioclimatic method for calculation of crop water requirements has been widely used in the USSR in recent years. The author has analyzed the results of its application for designing...

Estimation of Ground Cover via Spectral Data
Potato ground cover and spectral data were measured in the Columbia Basin during 1990 growing season. Three spectral models were correlated with ground cover; normalized difference, red...

Hydrologic Change Caused by the Eruption of Mount St. Helens
On 18 May 1980, the eruption of Mount St. Helens created a massive landslide which covered 32 square miles and stripped all vegetation from 150 square miles. A study of changes in hydrologic...

Finite Element Modeling of Flow in Wetlands
Requirements for developing a mathematical model of unsteady flow in wetlands are suggested. An equivalent continuum approximation is appropriate to avoid problems of describing the turbulence...
