Such information may be obtained, often online, from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) water science center that covers the study area, or from the State engineer’s or State geologist’s offices. Once the status of existing data is established, areas where additional data are needed can be identified and new data can be obtained.

This project is designed to increase the resilience of agricultural production in the Tennessee and Cumberland River Basins (TCB) by promoting the adaptation of land management practices to climate-related changes in water availability and growing conditions.

Our action plan will address the following questions: (1) How do changes in climate, land use and industrial/ consumer.

Remote sensing-based discharge estimation makes use of the gaging station data for calibration of the signal to discharge, and thus effectively extends the instrumental information in time.

Abstract: As a civil engineer with a long and distinguished career, Whitney McNair Borland () focused his research on sedimentation, hydraulics, avalanches and other aspects of hydrology. He was employed by the United States Bureau of Reclamation for over forty years, spending some of that time conducting model sedimentation studies in Fort Collins, working in.

A major problem in the Nation today is that the U.S. Forest Service, custodian of 8 percent of the Nation's land and 5 1/2 percent of the Nation's commercial forest land is inhibited in applying the best available technology to its management of these lands by legislative and judicial restrictions and by inadequate funding.

The feed-forward back-propagation network (BPN) and radial basis function network (RBFN) model prediction results produced excellent agreement with measured data at a correlation coefficient above for filtrate water quality parameters, including temperature as well as turbidity, heterotrophic bacteria, and coliform removal.

The size of particles moving as suspended load may include a portion of the bed sediment load, depending on the energy available for transport (Vanoni, ). For example, the suspended load frequently reported by U.S. Geological Survey publications usually includes a portion of the bed sediment load and all of the wash load.
