Climatic Data in the Coastal Zone—Our Climate as a Natural Resource

Weathering of Constituents at Land Treatment Sites
The objectives of this research were to: 1) determine the leachability of metals and organics from soils at hazardous waste land treatment sites; 2) evaluate the mobility of hazardous...

Advisory System for South Florida Water Management
A comprehensive, real-time advisory system was developed for the operation of water control facilities within the South Florida Water Management District. The Operations Assistant and...

Development of the Hydrodata CD-ROM Data Storage System
To store and retrieve data from two of the USGS WATSTORE databases - the daily and peak values files - and the Summary of the Day file from the National Climatic Data Center, the authors...

Flood Warning Using Wide-Area Computer Networks
Wide-area computer networks are being used with increasing frequency to improve regional response to flood events, coordinate efforts between agencies and communities, and to improve flood...

PROFS Role in Modernization of the National Weather Service
This paper describes the overall modernization procedure and the computing infrastructure that will support hydrologic operations in a prototype workstation that will be available in National...

Mesoscale Numerical Weather Prediction for Reservoir Design and Flash Flood Management
A portable, interactive weather prediction system (PIWPS), which runs on a desktop workstation, has been developed and tested on several heavy precipitation events in the Rocky Mountains,...

Innovative Uses of Rainfall Prediction in Urban Flash Flood Forecasting
Operational prediction of excessive convective rainfall and the ensuing urban flooding has been an integral part of the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District's (UDFCD)...

WATFLOOD: A Real-Time, Microcomputer-Based Data Management and Flood Forecast System
WATFLOOD is a menu-driven micro-computer based flood forecasting system incorporating data management programs to enable real-time use of weather radar for flood forecasting. The main...

Simulation Model for Economic Irrigation Project Planning and Design
The principle design parameters considered are: water supply configurations (quantity, source and storage); shapes and sizes of the area to be served; on-farm irrigation techniques; cropping...

Tapping A Glacier
The Eklutna water project receives a 1988 Outstanding Civil Engineering Award of merit. The project—a 30 mile pipeline and treatment plant that brings glacial runoff from Eklutna lake...

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...

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....

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...
