Effects of Climate Change on Drought Risks in the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, and Flint River Basin
Possible effects of climate change on the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River basin is simulated with a computer model. Model inputs are monthly temperature and precipitation...

Impacts of Climate Change on Evapotranspiration and Runoff in the Tennessee River Basin
Recent climate change studies using general circulation models demonstrated the potential for a 1 to 3°C warming in North America, as well as increases in precipitation and evaporation...

A Statistical Climate Inversion Scheme and its Application in Hydrologic Impact Assessment Studies Associated with Global Climate Variability
The use of deterministic atmospheric, general circulation models (GCM's) to understand potential global climate change under doubled CO2 forcing...

Simulation of Daily Climatic Series for the Assessment of Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources
A new approach to the generation of climatic time series for studies of the impact of climate change on water resources is presented. The method adapts a current stochastic weather generator...

Modeling Water Table Response to Climate Change in a Norther Minnesota Peatland
Projections of global warming raise questions concerning the fate of wetlands in many parts of the world. In northern Minnesota, there is concern that the nearly 3 million hectares of...

Impacts of Potential Climate Change on Colorado-Big Thompson System Operations
The objective of this study is to examine the response of the Colorado-Big Thompson (CBT) system to specific local changes in climate, using the model CBTAOP to project the operating plan...

Watershed Simulation for Characterizing Droughts Under the Influence of Climate Change
The paper describes a model for simulating soil moisture deficit on a daily basis using historical rainfall and climatic data for the analysis of droughts. Distributed parameter hydrologic...

Application of Distributed Parameter Watershed Model for Determining the Effects of Climate Change on Water Resources
Projected scenarios of climate change are likely to have significant effects on hydrology and water resources in the semi-arid western United States. The paper describes the application...

Climate Change: Is Trouble Ahead for Water Engineers?
Very long range forecasts of future global warming from 2 to 5°C have been made as a result of the increase in carbon dioxide and trace gases in the atmosphere due to man's activities....

BASIN 2.0 for the Design of Level-Basin Irrigation Systems
The purpose of this paper is to present a computer program for the hydraulic design of level-basin irrigation systems. The first of three design modes provides design based on the advance...

AZSCHED—Software for Real-time Irrigation Scheduling
A user-friendly computer based scheduling program was developed to minimize the amount of data which needs to be input by the user by utilizing a network of twenty automated weather stations...

Comparison of Advective Transport Algorithms with an Application in Suisun Bay, a Sub-Embayment of San Francisco Bay, California
This paper examines the conservative properties of several numerical treatments of the salt conservation equation. Specifically, computationally efficient first and second order Eulerian-Lagrangian...

Debris Flow & Hyperconcentrated Flow: A UK Perspective
Debris-flow activity within the UK is largely confined to upland regions and certain coastal locations. Within the uplands, debris-flow and hyperconcentrated flood waters pose a local...

Digital Image Techniques for Volume Change Measurements in Triaxial Tests
This paper presents an innovative technique that has been used for measuring the volumetric deformation that cylindrical specimens experience during the shearing stages of a triaxial test....

Elasto-Plastic Volume Change of Unsaturated Compacted Clay
Isotropic compression tests were performed on samples of unsaturated compacted kaolin in a modified triaxial cell that allowed separate control of pore water pressure and pore air pressure....

A Leap of Faith in China: A Viewpoint
The author, a senior vice president of LoBuono, Armstrong & Associates in Tampa, Florida, says that evaluating projects in the difficult but lucrative China market means looking...

Global Change: Geoengineering and Space Exploration
Increased concern over the effects of global climate change and depletion of the ozone layer has resulted in support for the Global Change Research Program and for the Mission to Planet...

The Army Corps of Engineer's (ACE) Interaction with the Mission to Planet Earth Initiative
The Corps of Engineers Research and Development Directorate has identified Mission to Planet Earth Initiative as of possible interest in supporting the non-tactical missions of the Army...

Traffic Data Collection: What Really Needs to be Done?
The collection of 'existing' traffic data such as the 24-hour counts, turning movement counts, driveway volumes, and vehicle classification counts near the proposed project site becomes...
