Design Hydrographs in Coastal Wetland Watersheds
The use of synthetic unit-hydrographs for hydraulic design in ungaged watersheds has been an accepted practice for over 50 years. In southeastern U.S. coastal regions, which contain extremely...

Lag Relations for Semi-Arid Regions and Urban Areas
The use of synthetic unit hydrographs often requires the estimation of lag or other travel time parameters. Several procedures are available for estimating such unit hydrograph parameters....

Hydrologic Modelling of Extreme Flood on Small Mountainous Watersheds
Statistical and deterministic methods for extreme flood estimation were applied to Swiss alpine catchments to assess the application limits of each approach. Comparative results produced...

Robust Method to Generate Multiple Unit Hydrographs
When performing a rainfall runoff study, it is sometimes necessary to change the duration of a given unit hydrograph. The instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) provides an ideal tool to...

PMF Estimation for a Sparsely Gaged Watershed
This paper describes a procedure used to determine the design-basis and probable maximum flood (DBF and PMF) for Jiguey Dam located in the Dominican Republic. This dam is situated upstream...

A GIS Application to Hydrology
This paper illustrates an application of Geographic Information System (GIS) in estimating input parameters for Penn State Runoff Model (PSRM), a watershed rainfall-runoff simulation model....

Nonpoint Source Pollution Model for Agricultural and Rural Watersheds
A dynamic hydrologic and nonpoint source pollution simulation model for agricultural and rural watersheds; capable of simulating rainfall-runoff, soil erosion, sediment transport, mixing...

Urban Nonpoint Pollution Control Kettering Demonstration Project
The development of effective nonpoint pollution control programs has become one of the most complex challenges facing local and state authorities. Because of the multifarious nature of...

Unit Hydrograph Estimation Procedures Using Orthogonal Functions
All unit hydrograph estimation procedures based on orthogonal functions are reviewed in this paper. A more physically based orthogonal function (a gamma function) for unit hydrograph estimation...

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,...

Watershed-Wide Stormwater Management Planning Issues
Pennsylvania counties are responsible for basinwide stormwater management planning under the Stormwater Management Act of 1978. The predominant engineering technique employed within these...

Comprehensive Stormwater Management Planning
Prince William County, Virginia and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region III, are implementing an interagency, interdisciplinary stormwater management demonstration project....

Impact of Urbanization on Storm Runoff
The engineering design of hydraulic structures is directly associated with the estimation of design parameters connected with extreme events. Methods of estimating extreme events typically...

An SCS-Based Model for Hydrologic Analysis of Watersheds
A single-event mathematical watershed model is presented in this paper to compute runoff resulting from any natural or synthetic rainfall. The formulations of the various hydrologic processes...

County Hydrology, Regional Approach
The effort to update the regional hydrology methods of the Santa Clara Valley Water District (District) entails a series of tasks that are long and difficult. This paper enumerates the...

River Characteristics of the Blue Nile Watershed
A common difficulty in modeling hydrological systems is the lack of available field data to assess the model parameters. In some cases, it is physically very difficult and expensive to...

Stormwater Management Practices in New Jersey—Suggestions for Improvements
The State of New Jersey, due to large population density and intensive development, has become a frontier in regulating the stormwater runoff. This paper presents an overview of current...

Estimating Watershed Runoff fro Lightning Data—A Case History
A major problem in the application of hydrologic models to ungaged watersheds is the lack of necessary rainfall data. In most cases watersheds gaged for streamflow have no or only one...

Characterization of Thunderstorm Rainfall for Hydrologic Modeling
Rainfall and runoff records for 30 events from a 630-hectare subwatershed on the USDA-ARS Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed in southeastern Arizona were used to estimate the desirable...

Analysis of Spatial and Temporal Precipitation Data Over a Densely Gaged Experimental Watershed
Historical precipitation data from the densely gaged Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed in southeastern Arizona are used to quantify watershed-scale properties of precipitation. Daily,...
