Simulating Effects of Weather on Construction
Three simulation models used to evaluate the effect of weather on construction projects are described. Models differ in the ways decisions are made to work or not to work, in the ways...

Ecological Consequences of Winter Cloud Seeding
Some ecological consequences of cloud seeding are considered with special reference to winter orographic programs using silver iodide as the seeding agent. It appears that with present...

Waves off Mangalore Harbor—West Coast of India
Detailed statistical investigations of recorded waves off Mangalore on the West Coast of India are presented. Rayleigh distribution is found to describe adequately the distribution of...

Slope Stability in Tropically Weathered Diorite

Colorado Pilot Project: Design Hydrometeorology
A large, 4-yr winter cloud seeding pilot project has been started by the Bureau of Reclamation in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. This paper describes how precipitation, snowpack,...

Evaluating Water Surface Heat Exchange Coefficients
Field measurements of the water surface heat exchange coefficient, K, can be obtained using the methodology presented. The method was developed in conjunction with a hydraulic model study...

Foundation Practices for Talbingo Dam, Australia
The dam site for Talbingo Dam, a 530-ft high rockfill structure, is located in shyolite lava flows except for the upper right abutment, which is in tuff beds. On the right abutment the...

Cloud Seeding Interpreted through Atmospheric Water Balance
The study of the flow and storage change of water vapor in the atmosphere above the Colorado River Basin is used to interpret the results of cloud seeding experiments. Particular interest...

Orographic Cloud Seeding as a Water Resource

Modification of Convective Clouds in Northern Plains

Investigation of Deteriorated Concrete Arch Dam
Investigation of a 40-yr old concrete arch dam is described. Apparent normal weathering processes had caused deterioration to a point where repairs were necessary. Repairs were started...

Scheduling Irrigations Using Climate-Crop-Soil Data
The most important factor affecting irrigation efficiencies and crop yields is scheduling irrigations in time and amount. Overirrigation may result in waterlogged soils, a condition which...

New Water for Northern Plains
Current research follows a plan to progress from experimental projects on individual clouds (or areas less than 1,000 sq miles) to pilot projects involving several thousand square miles...

Arizona Weather Modification Research Program
The paper presented here is an interim progress review for the period ending with the fourth summer season at Flagstaff. In 1967, randomized seeding of isolated cumulus clouds was the...

Silver Iodide Generations and Public Health
Exposure of the operator of a cloud seeding generator is compared with threshold limits for prolonged exposure established by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists....

Design of Cloud Seeding Program
Evaluation of the results of cloud seeding in test projects in mountain areas during the winter season would be speeded by the use of a natural mesoscale unit of observation, the convection...

All-Weather Tanker Terminal For Cook Inlet, Alaska
This paper describes the design and construction of a 30,000 DWT to 60,000 DWT capacity tanker loading facility constructed in Cook Inlet, Alaska for year-round operations. Particular...

Consumptive Use Derived from Evaporation Pan Data
Evapotranspiration measurements or computations provide basic information for the computation of irrigation requirements. Unfortunately, in underdeveloped or developing countries both...

Pan Evaporation and Evapotranspiration from Climatic Data
Pan evaporation data are useful in estimating losses from reservoirs and lakes, and for estimating evapotranspiration from agricultural crops using procedures relating evapotranspiration...

Use of Atmometers in Estimating Evapotranspiration
Studies conducted by the California Department of Water Resources during the past 10 yr show that Livingston black and white spherical atmometers provide a practical means of estimating...
