Space-Time-Frequency Analysis of Rainfall, Runoff and Temperature in the Casamance River basin, Southern Senegal, West Africa
Using long-term data on rainfall and annual runoff, an investigation was made of the spatial and temporal variability of rainfall and runoff in the Casamance River basin located in southern Senegal, West Africa. A 5-year ...
Effect of Groundwater Pumping on Seawater Intrusion in Coastal Aquifers
(Sultan Qaboos University, 2002)
Many aquifers around the globe are located in coastal areas and are thus subjected to the seawater intrusion phenomenon. The growth of population in coastal areas and the conjugate increase in human, agricultural, and ...
Model Error In Flood Frequency Estimation
Asymptotic bias in large quantiles and moments for three parameter estimation methods, including the maximum likelihood method (MLM), moments method (MOM) and linear moments method (LMM), is derived when a probability ...
Watershed Management: New Approaches and Paradigms
(Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Louisiana State University, 2002)
Integrated watershed management is being increasingly accepted now-a-days for environmental and water resources conservation, protection and management. Watershed management links human activities within the watershed to ...
Derivation Of The SCS-CN Parameter S From Linearized Fokker-Planck Equation
The potential maximum retention, S, of the Soil Conservation Service Curve Number (SCS-CN) method (SCS, 1956) was derived for a large set of published infiltration data ranging from Plainfield sand to Yololight clay using ...
Granulometric characterization of sediments transported by surface runoff generated by moving storms
Due to the combined effect of wind and rain, the importance of storm movement to surface flow has long been recognized, at scales ranging from headwater scales to large basins. This study presents the results of laboratory ...
Determination of Critical Head in Soil Piping
One of the main mechanisms of failure of levees is a phenomenon called ‘‘piping,’’ which generally begins with the formation of a sand boil at the leeward side of the levee, and has been frequently observed to proceed ...
SCS-CN Method. Part I: Derivation of SCS-CN-Based Models
This part of the paper, in a sequence of two, provides an analytical treatment of the Soil Conservation Service Curve Number (SCS-CN) method including its derivation from a) early rainfall-runoff methods, such as the Mockus ...
Bauman's Verbal Art and the Social Organization of Attention: The Role of Reflexivity in the Aesthetics of Performance
(American Folklore Society/University of Illinois Press, 2002-01)
In Richard Bauman's landmark study Verbal Art as Performance, reflexivity plays a small but important role. Combining ideas from Verbal Art with insights from phenomenology, this article uses the concept of reflexivity ...
