Ambient Air Monitoring to Support HLW Repository Site Characterization
This paper is a description of the program that has been operating in support of the Yucca Mountain site site characterization activities since 1985.The ambient air monitoring is designed...

Computer-based Building Design and Pedestrian-level Wind Conditions
Knowledge based computer system has been developed for the evaluation of wind conditions around buildings at pedestrian level. This paper concentrates on two major components of the system,...

Recovery of Shoreline Ecosystems Following the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill and Subsequent Treatment
High-pressure, hot-water washing was evaluated as one of several countermeasures for cleaning oiled shorelines. This was the primary treatment method for nearly all treated shorelines...

The Coastal Data Information Program—A Successful Federal, State and University Cooperation
The Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) is a cooperative effort managed jointly by the U.S. Army Engineers, Waterways Experiment Station and the State of California, Department of...

Driver Response to Fog Conditions — An Intelligent Approach
The Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) on NSW is currently examining options for replacing its Driver Aid System on the F6 Tollway south of Sydney. On this road drivers are affected by...

Precipitation Data in the Mountains of the Western United States: Do We Have What We Need?
Data collected by the National Weather Service and the Soil Conservation Service in the western United States are the primary sources of precipitation information for engineering and hydrologic...

Development of an Isohyetal Analysis for Oregon Using the Prism Model
PRISM (Precipitation-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model) is an analytical model that uses point data and a digital elevation model (DEM) to generate gridded estimates of...

Evaluation of the Effects of Weather Modification to Enhance Reservoir Yield During Drought—Salinas Valley, California
Cloud seeding has been conducted for water years 1990-91 and 1991-92 in Monterey County, California in response to the extended drought. The Monterey County Water Resources Agency weather...

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...

A New Look at the Potential of Hygroscopic Seeding in Summertime Convective Clouds
Hygroscopic seeding was conducted in the sixties and early seventies in the USA, but since then, most cloud seeding efforts have used glaciogenic seeding materials, usually silver iodide...

Hourly Reference Evapotranspiration by Bowen Ratio and Penman Methods
Hourly and daily reference evapotranspiration (ETo) computed from Bowen ratio energy balance (BREB) measurements were compared with ETo estimated from the hourly Penman equation (ETP)....

Siting Agricultural Weather Stations
Studies were conducted in Arizona and Washington to investigate how the surrounding fetch affects data collected by agricultural weather stations (AWS). AWS surrounded by extensive areas...

The Utah Climate Center Weather Data Network
The Utah Climate Center weather data network includes 52 sophisticated, automated weather stations. Weather parameters are monitored in real-time and hourly summarized data are gathered,...

Updating Utah's Crop Water Use Estimates
Crop water use was estimated at National Weather Service stations throughout Utah for the 1961-1990 normal period. Daily weather data (air temperature, solar radiation, humidity, wind...

Evapotranspiration Data Management in California
This paper will discuss components of the California Irrigation Management Information System (CIMIS). CIMIS is an automated agricultural weather network operated by the California Department...

Results from a Long-Term Winter Cloud Seeding Program in Utah
An operational wintertime cloud seeding program has been conducted in portions of Utah since 1974. North American Weather Consultants (NAWC) has conducted this program for a consortium...

Cloud Seeding: The Engineering is Done, but What About Social Impacts?
As engineers, we tend to focus on the technical aspects of cloud seeding, and may neglect important social aspects or potential side effects. Often people in the target area are more concerned...

The Present Status of Precipitation Enhancement by Cloud Seeding
Atmospheric water in the form of precipitation, is one of the primary sources of fresh water in the world. However, a large amount of water present in clouds never gets transformed into...
