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...

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...

The Tides Effects on the Dam Break Flood Wave
The accuracy of water level predictions downstream of the dam is dependent upon the breach evaluation, the correct estimation of the roughness coefficients and when the flood wave reaches...

New Clues to PMP
Great changes have occurred in meterology in the last two decades. Formerly, weather data were available for forecasting and climatological analyses only at points - at weather stations....

Management of Computer Systems

Foundation Treatment of Karstic Features Under TVA Dams
TVA has constructed many of its dams on limestone foundations. Some of these foundations have been highly weathered and required special treatment not only to ensure strength but to develop...

Clogging Study of Geotextile with Weathered Mudstone
This paper focuses on the combined use of fly ash and geotextiles as a solution for the typical engineering problem of weathered mudstone slopes encountered in Taiwan. In situ collapsed...

Section One—Embankment Design and Construction in Cold Regions: An Overview

Section Five—Construction Materials and Field Placement

Section Seven—Case Histories in Seasonal Frost Areas

Probabilistic Design of Flexible Pavements
Numerous random phenomena enter into the process of deterioration of pavements under the effect of traffic. It is felt that improvement in current design methods could be obtained by adopting...

Reported Results from 600 Cloud Seeding Projects
The authors conclude that cloud seeding is an effective way of increasing precipitation when applied to the appropriate clouds and climate. Reported results from research projects show...

Use of the Penman Equation in Inter-Mountain Valleys
H.L. Penman equation as well as the J.L. Monteith version of this equation were compared under the advective conditions of the Grand Valley of Colorado. The wind function in the general...

Near-Real Time Weather Information for Irrigation Management in Arizona
The Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET) is a near-real time ag-weather information system for Arizona. A single personal computer running inexpensive bulletin board software controls...

Collection, Quality Control and Dissemination of Weather Data for Irrigation and Other Operations in an Automated Setting
High technology has made it possible to completely automate the collection of weather data. Care must be taken in designing the automated system to generalize the software components thereby...

Irrigation Scheduling Using Voice Synthesis, the Next Logical Step
An irrigation management program sponsored by the Raft River Electric Cooperative in Malta, Idaho, provided directly measured soil moisture data to selected irrigators each week during...

The North Dakota Atmospheric Resource Program
For over a third of a century regions of North Dakota have conducted cloud seeding operations aimed at hail damage mitigation or rainfall enhancement. Cloud modification has become an...

Modelling the Effects of Wind on Pavement Runoff
Phase I of this study, the primary focus of this paper, consists of the development of a mathematical model to predict runoff depths from a pavement under uniform wind conditions. The...

Weathering Steel: Industry's Stepchild
Improper location and poor detailing are two reasons why some weathering steel bridges are not living up to their early promise. That was the consensus reached during a July 1988 forum...
