Estimation of key parameters in model for solute transport in rivers and streams

Posted by bodmer 2262 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://www.springerlink.com

The exchange mechanisms associated with transient storage zones of a natural heterogeneous environment are often modified by unsteady water flux in the transient storage zone. This phenomenon can play an important role in the mass exchange between the free flowing water zone and the transient storage zones and may be the cause of the plateau region of the tail of observed concentration curves in ...

Development of a Regional Neural Network for Coastal Water Level Predictions

Posted by dane307 2261 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://cirp.wes.army.mil

This paper presents the development of a Regional Neural Network for Water Level (RNN WL) predictions, with an application to the coastal inlets along the South Shore of Long Island, New York. Long-term water level data at coastal inlets are important for studying coastal hydrodynamics sediment transport. However, it is quite common that long-term water level observations may be not available, du ... Read More

Sand Waves That Impede Navigation of Coastal Inlet Navigation Channels

Posted by bodmer 2262 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://cirp.wes.army.mil

Large bed forms, such as dunes or sand waves, can pose a navigation hazard for inlet channels (Pope 2000). Understanding the conditions causing their formation can be an aid in navigation channel management. This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineer Technical Note (CHETN) is concerned with large bed forms that chronically or periodically encroach on the authorized navigation depth. Smaller bed forms h ...

German scientists warn of changes in Arctic Ocean circulation

Posted by dane307 2263 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://www.earthtimes.org

Marine scientists in Germany have issued an alarming warning about the radically alteration of the circulation of water in the Arctic Ocean. The findings by the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences (IFM- GEOMAR) in Kiel, Germany, have dire implications for climate change in the Northern Hemisphere. Hitherto, the circulation of the Arctic Ocean was driven by the formation of sea ice rather than th ... Read More

Dark Water near Rio de la Plata

Posted by maplover 2263 days ago in Fluid Mechanics from http://veimages.gsfc.nasa.gov

On April 28, 2002, the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) captured this image of very bright, sediment-laden water in the Rio de la Plata of South America. Along the coast to the northwest, however, very little light was reflected back to the orbiting sensor. It is not clear what is causing this large, very dark patch of water. Perhaps a phytoplankton bloom being fed by high-nutrient ... Read More
