Co-ordinated Microcomputer-Based Rain Data Network and Modeling Environment
A co-ordinated microcomputer controlled rainfall collection network has been designed which includes drop counting precipitation sensors, tipping bucket raingauges, Z80-A microprocessor...

Water Use by Saltcedar in an Arid Environment
Specialized instruments and measurement techniques developed at the University of Arizona facilitate precise estimation of evapotranspiration (ET) with the energy budget model. Use of...

A Field Study of Wind-Induced Conductor Loads
A 161 kV steel pole line in Omaha, Nebraska, is instrumented to provide conductor load field data due to climatic events. Various transducers and monitoring equipment used for data acquisition...

Hot Sand for Improved Traction on Icy Roads
Experiments were performed to determine if heating sand prior to spreading it on icy roads would improve the skid resistance of the road more than cold sanding. Tests were made on a full-scale...

Wastewater Plant Cold Weather Operational Problems
A questionnaire survey was conducted at biological wastewater treatment facilities in northern New England. Problems associated with various unit processes, due to cold weather operations,...

Legal Concerns in Cold Regions Engineering and Construction
For a variety of reasons the potential for the imposition of liability and the potential for comparatively large damage claims is greater in cold regions. It is the purpose of this paper...

Evaluation of Runoff Prediction Using Synthetic Rainfall and CREAMS
Of all the climatological data, rainfall is the variable to which a watershed responds most significantly. The amount and sequence of occurrence of rainfall are most important in the prediction...

Simulation of Airborne Snow Water Equivalent Measurement Errors Made over a Forest Environment
The Office of Hydrology of the National Weather Service has developed and maintains an operational Airborne Gamma Radiation Snow Survey Program in the upper Midwest (Peck, et al. , 1980)....

Characterization of Indoor Carbon Monoxide Levels Produced by the Automobile
Integrated air samples were obtained at seven small and six large service stations and two dealerships. These establishments were sampled during cold and warm weather operations for eight...

Rainfall Results of the Florida Area Cumulus Experiment and Their Implications for Drought Problems in the South
Evidence is presented for treatment effects during the Florida Area Cumulus Experiment (FACE). The sizes of the apparent effects are a function of scale, largest for the cell scale and...

Texas Hiplex Experimental Design
Research into rainfall enhancement in Texas expanded rapidly during the 1970's with the Texas HIPLEX program. More recently, the states of Texas and Oklahoma and the United...

Evaluation of Cloud Seeding: Southern Great Plains
One of the important aspects of planned weather modification in the United States is that many operational, non-experimental cloud seeding projects have occurred since 1950. Further, several...

Radar for Flood Forecasting-Reservoir Operation
The A&M Watershed Model will soon be capable of improved weather radar supported real-time flood forecasting and reservoir operations. Improvement in the scheme for inputting radar...

Statewide Hydrologic Data Base and Analysis System
The Wyoming Water Research Center (WWRC) at the University of Wyoming has developed, in cooperation with the Wyoming State Engineer's Office, a statewide Water Resources Data...

Microcomputer Program for Daily Weather Simulation
Extensive climatic data have been collected by the National Weather Service and other agencies, and are available in printed form or on magnetic tapes. The published data are expensive...

Near Real-Time Climatic Data in Illinois
The need for making real-time climatic data available for use was recognized in Illinois, and a concerted effort began in 1983 to develop a system for collecting and disseminating near...

Transmission Tower Foundations in Weathered Rock
A case history is presented which discusses the siting, design and construction of the tower foundations for a transmission line in southwest Alaska. The project, completed in 1983, consists...

Concrete Face Rockfill Dams of the Winneke Project
Two of the three dams forming the Winneke Reservoir, near Melbourne, Australia, are concrete face rockfill dams. A minor dam forming the sludge storage pond for the project's...
