A study of the impact of doubling carbon dioxide and solar radiation variations on the climate system
The exchange of moisture and heat between the atmosphere and the Earth's surface fundamentally affect the dynamics and thermodynamics of the climate system. In order to trace moisture flow through the climate system and ...
Probabilistic analysis in surface water hydrology: Open drainage channels and detention basins
A reliability-based method for analyzing open drainage channels and detention basins using the full marginal distributions of uncertain parameters together with correlation coefficients will be presented in this work. A ...
Integration of a surcharged pipe model and an overland flow model for flood prediction in a highly urbanized area
Two models were incorporated to evaluate the hydrologic and hydraulic behavior of the Harris Gully watershed in Houston, Texas. A HEC-1 model was created and calibrated to three historical storms for average errors of 6% ...
Mixed finite element methods for variably saturated subsurface flow
The flow of water through variably saturated subsurface media is commonly modeled by Richards' equation, a nonlinear and possibly degenerate partial differential equation. Due to the nonlinearities, this equation is difficult ...
Determination of streamflow characteristics for ungaged Texas streams using regression analysis
The harmonic mean, 7Q2 (7-day, 2-year low-flow), and 7Q10 are streamflow characteristics used to determine stream waste load allocations. Predictive equations for these characteristics of ungaged Texas streams are developed ...
