    Estimating runoff volumes and flood hydrographs in the Colorado River Basin, southern Utah, , Water-Resources Investigations Report Waterlogging in an alluvial aquifer near Lake Minnequa, Pueblo, Colorado, , Water-Resources Investigations Report from rainfall-induced runoff can be simulated, and estimates of basin lagtime and flood-runoff volume can be made. This technique was developed from an analysis of flood records for 61 streamflow-gaging stations in small basins in Missouri. Final hydrograph shape and flood-runoff-volume analyses are based on a balanced, representative sampling.

    The Hardest Working River in the West: Common-Sense Solutions for a Reliable Water Future for the Colorado River Basin Identifies five innovative solutions that could eliminate Western water shortages stemming from the over-taxed and stressed Colorado River and meet the water needs of the West's business, agricultural and growing population. For example, in , the whole Yangtze River basin suffered from a monstrous flood, which led to economic losses of billion Chinese Yuan and affected nearly million people [32,

    THE USE OF A DIMENSIONLESS UNIT HYDROGRAPH TO DERIVE UNIT HYDROGRAPHS FOR SOME PACIFIC NORTHWEST BASINS by Bender, Donald L & Roberson, John A and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at The Bureau of Reclamation currently operates a model that projects future Colorado River reservoir volumes and potential dam operations based on current and forecasted hydrologic conditions, and operational policies and guidelines (the Month Study).Each month a water budget is developed and Colorado River reservoir volumes and releases are projected for the next month period.

Eychaner, Geological Survey (U.S.) and Utah. The Colorado begins at La Poudre Pass in the Southern Rocky Mountains of Colorado, at 10, ft (3, m) above sea level.

After a short run south, the river turns west below Grand Lake, the largest natural lake in the state. For the first miles ( km) of its course, the Colorado carves its way through the mountainous Western Slope, a sparsely populated region defined by the portion of • location: Rocky Mountains, Colorado, United States.

Two recent probable maximum flood (PMF) estimates for the dam range f to 18, m 3/s demonstrate the uncertainty in estimating extreme flooding in eastern Colorado. PMF difference is due in part to a lack of extreme.

Extreme flood hydrographs are needed for different engineering applications, such as risk analysis for dam safety (Nathan and Weinmann, ; Swain et al., ) or estimating floodwater recharge into alluvial aquifers (Greenbaum et al., ; Benito et al.

evolution of the runoff equation, point to this heritage. The principal application of the method is in estimat-ing quantities of runoff in flood hydrographs or in relation to flood peak rates (National Engineering Handbook (NEH), chapter 16).

An understand-ing of runoff types is necessary to apply the method. Over the period –, the Upper Colorado River Basin naturalized streamflow declined by %, despite the fact that annual precipitation in the UCRB over that period increased slightly (+%).

In order to examine the causes of the runoff declines, we performed a set of experiments with the Variable Infiltration Capacity hydrology model. PDF | Rainfall-runoff simulation is an essential step in analyzing the impacts of extreme flood events.

The year marks the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Colorado River Compact.
