Sustainable Energy Systems: A New Paradigm for New Energy Technologies
The fundamental links between energy production/use and the environment are becoming increasingly apparent. The major environmental challenges of global climate change, acid precipitation,...

Oceanic CO2 Uptake and Future Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations
The global pattern of water column inventories of bomb-produced 14C suggests that an upwelling of bomb 14C-free...

Potential Effects of Global Climate Change on the Central and Southern Florida Project
The possible impacts of some potential climate change effects such as sea level rise, changes in tropical cyclone intensity and frequency, and changes in precipitation and temperature...

Projecting Climate Change to Small Basins: Potential Impact of Global Warming on Hurricane-Induced Flooding in South Florida
An important difficulty in evaluating potential hydrologic impacts of climate variability is that predictions of climate change require global simulation models that do not resolve phenomena...

Volume-Controlled Approach for Direct Measurements of Compressibility and Hydraulic Conductivity

Calculation of Three-Dimensional Turbulent Flow in Francis Turbine Runner
A numerical scheme, based on MacCormack's predictor-corrector explicit finite volume method, for solving three-dimensional weakly compressible inviscid, laminar, and turbulent...

Sea Level Rise and Maritime Boundaries: The Effect of Rising Sea Level on International Boundaries
This paper, jointly written by a lawyer and a coastal geomorphologist, will examine the possible responses at a legal level to the implications of global warming induced sea level rise...

Western Surface Climate and Streamflow and the El Nino/Southern Oscillation
Climate variability has direct social and economic impacts the most direct of which occur through the hydrologic cylce. Of primary concern to society are the hydrologic extremes of floods...

Environments of the Last 50,000 Years in the Vicinity of Yucca Mountain, Central-Southern Nevada
Located within the southern hydrographic Great Basin, the Nevada Test Site lies astride the transition between the Mojave Desert to the south and the Great Basin Desert to the north. Fossil...

Data Collection Using a Portable Computer and Digitizing Tablet
This paper describes a data collection system developed by the New Hampshire Technology Transfer Center. The key features of this data collection method are its ease of use, single step...

Climate Change and Resulting Hydrologic Response: Illinois River Basin
In the last 20 years, the northern half of the Illinois River basin has been experiencing a wetter and cooler climate. This climate change has significantly increased Illinois River flows...

Possible Climate Change and Its Impact on Snowmelt and Water Supply in California
Global climate modelers are forecasting relatively large future climate change, with warming of 2 to 5°C. These changes, if they do occur, would have major impacts on California's...

Large Floods and Climate Change in the Southwestern United States
Floods can have a tremendous impact on water resources but their properties may fluctuate at frequencies that defy recognition in short-term instrumented records. Paleoflood deposits provide...

Complex Geomorphic Response to Minor Climate Changes, San Diego County, CA
Precipitation in San Diego County, California over the past several hundred years has been characterized by excursions between periods of relatively low precipitation having durations...

Untangling A Can of Worms
Increasing traffic volumes combined with rush-hour delays and commuter complaints have spurred New York State DOT to improve the capacity of a major interchange near Rochester. The interchange,...

Bayesian Framework for Model Structure Uncertainty: Application to Sea-Level Response to Changing Global CO2

Some Hydrological Impacts of Climate Change for the Delaware River Basin
To gain insight into possible impacts of climate change on water availability in the Delaware River, two models are linked. The first model is a monthly water balance model that converts...

Synthetic O-D Microcomputer Trip Table Packages
Three microcomputer models for synthetic estimation of origin-destination trip tables are compared based on theoretical foundations, implementability, and operating performances. Each...

DELVACS: A Computer Program for Performance Evaluation of Low Volume Coordinated Semi-Actuated Systems
This paper presents a computer program which provides a tool for making choices between coordinated and free operation on an arterial roadway under semi-actuated control. The decision...

Great Lakes Waters: Too Little or Too Much?
Water supplies in the Great Lakes Basin, the world's largest fresh water supply, are more than adequate to meet current and projected needs. However, supplies could become...
