Abstract (Water Management, Conservation of Natural Resources) Water resource management requires knowledge of the natural variability in streamﬂow over multiple time scales. Reconstructions of streamﬂow derived from moisture-sensitive trees extend, in both time and magnitude, the variability provided by relatively … Continue reading
ABSTRACT (Water Management, Conservation of Natural Resources) Water resource planning is based primarily on 20th century instrumental records of climate and streamflow. These records are limited in length to approximately 100 years, in the best cases, and can reflect only … Continue reading
Abstract (Conservation of Natural Resources, Valuable Resources, Community Education) The Greater Platte River Basins (GPRB), located in the heartland of the United States, provides a collaborative opportunity for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and its partners to understand the … Continue reading
Potential Habitat Loss and Population Fragmentation for Cold Water Fish in the North Platte River Drainage of the Rocky Mountains: Response to Climate Warming.
Abstract (Aquatic Life, Conservation of Natural Resources, Pollution – Climate) We used three approaches to examine potential habitat loss in relation to climate warming for cold water species of fish in the North Platte River drainage in Wyoming. The projected … Continue reading
Abstract (Pollution – Humans, Conservation of Natural Resources) Estimates of nonpoint and point sources of nitrogen were made for 107 watersheds located in the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Water Quality Assessment Program study units throughout the conterminous United States. The … Continue reading
Abstract (Pollution Human/Bacteria, Conservation of Natural Resources, Water Law, Community Education) This paper describes the areal distribution of fecal coliform densities within the stream system of the South Platte River basin in Colorado. Low densities, e.g., 0 to 99 fecal … Continue reading
Abstract (Restoration Areas, Watershed planning, Conservation of Natural Resources) Watershed Assessments are an excellent method of identifying landscape-scale environmental issues and targeting restoration projects that address those issues. Foster Wheeler Environmental conducted a landscape assessment on the 640,000 acre Upper … Continue reading
). Resource Management at the Watershed Level: An Assessment of the Changing Federal Role in the Emerging Era of Community-Based Watershed Management.
Abstract (Water Law, Conservation of Natural Resources) Under the Western Water Policy Review Act of 1992 (P.L. 102-575, Title XXX), Congress directed the President to undertake a comprehensive review of Federal activities in the 19 Western States that directly or … Continue reading
Abstract (Conservation of Natural Resources, Economic Redevelopment, Forest Mangement) We examine the response of streamflow to long-term rainfall variability under climate change by coupling downscaled global climate model precipitation to a distributed hydrologic model. We use daily output of the … Continue reading
Abstract (Water Management, Conservation of Natural Resources) Techniques employed to simulate infiltration and subsurface ground-water flow were examined for a number of available watershed models. The large number of processes that these models simulate prohibits detailed analysis of subsurface flow, … Continue reading
