Climate Change and Water-Resource Planning

Large Space Systems in Global Change Mitigation
Alternative courses of action are an important aspect of reacting to climate changes, including the greenhouse effect, and other environmental issues such as depletion of the ozone layer....

Predicting Effects of Global Climate Change on Reservoir Water Quality and Fish Habitat
This paper demonstrates the use of general circulation models (GCMs) for assessing global climate change effects on reservoir water quality and illustrates that general conclusions about...

Simulated Effects of Climatic Change on Runoff and Drought in the Delaware River Basin
Various projection of climatic change were applied to watershed models of the Delaware River basin. Simulations indicate that a warming could reduce annual runoff by as much as 25 percent...

Robustness of a Multiple-Use Reservoir to Seasonal Runoff Shifts Associated with Climate Change

Application of Weakly Compressible Flow Method to 2-D Open Channel Flows
The depth averaged equations for open channel flows are shown to be similar to that of the weakly compressible flows. The finite volume scheme developed for weakly compressible flows has...

The Long-Term Climate Change Assessment Task of the Protective Barrier Development Program for Low-Level Waste Site Remediation at the Hanford Site
A study plan is being developed to guide a multiyear program to assess long-term climate change and optimize the design of protective barriers. A protective barrier alternative is being...

Watershed Planning and Analysis in Action
This proceedings consists of papers presented at the 1990 Watershed Management Symposium held in Durango, Colorado from July 9-14, 1990. These papers present both research performed in...

Drought in Tennessee: Implications on Irrigation System Capacity
Recent droughts in Tennessee have led to a study of the required irrigation system capacity for the state. Data from 1951 through 1988 were analyzed for probabilities of precipitation...

Issues of Detectability of Climate Change Impacts on the Runoff of a Southeastern River Basin
Can we detect and predict changes in hydrology caused by climate changes? Assuming credible predictions of climate change, can we predict corresponding hydrologic effects? Are uncertainties...

Climate Change and U.S. Water Resources: Results from a Study by the American Association for Advancement of Science
The time horizon of the changes that might occur is similar to the time required for planning, approval, funding, construction and economic life of such major water facilities as dams,...

Effects of Climate Change on Watershed Runoff
This paper examines forecasts of changes in watershed runoff in the Delaware River basin that result from a range of predicted effects of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2)...

Expert System for Energy Conservation in Affordable Housing

Change Orders & Claims—An Owner's Perspective
Generally, the changes come before the claims. The owner wants to know why a change is needed, how much it will cost, and why the need for it was only just discovered. More money spent...

Packaging Claims
The paper briefly discusses project records and how they may provide important information for claims, what they should contain, and packaging the claim....

Who Pays for the Unexpected?—An Attorney's View
From an attorney's point of view, the answer to the question, 'Who Pays for the Unexpected?' in construction depends upon several considerations....

Simulation of Precipitation by Weather-Type Analysis
A new approach that uses weather-type analysis as a basis for stochastic precipitation modeling was developed and tested for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The weather types permit the identification...
