Microbial communities are responsible for the bulk of biogeochemical processing in temporary headwater streams, yet there is still relatively little known about how community structure and function respond to periodic drying and re-wetting. Moreover, the ability to sample temporary habitats can be a logistical challenge due to the capability to measure and predict the timing, intensity and frequency of wet-dry events. Unsurprisingly, published datasets on microbial community structure and function are limited in scope and temporal resolution and vary widely in the molecular methods applied. We compared environmental and microbial community datasets for permanent and temporary tributaries of two different North American headwater stream systems: Speed River (Ontario, Canada) and Parkers Creek (Maryland, USA). We explored whether taxonomic diversity and community composition were altered as a result of flow permanence and compared community composition amongst streams using different 16S microbial
Historically, this species is known from seven occurrences in the Ocmulgee River system (no recent specimens, see Sukkestad et al. 2006) of Georgia, one in the Oconee River system, six in the Altamaha River system, one in the Ogeechee River system, six in the Savannah River system, one in the Wateree River, and three in the Santee River system. In a recent survey of the Altamaha River drainage it was found at about 60 occurrences of 276 sites surveyed (G. Keferl pers. comm. 2000). Bogan and Alderman (2004) list the South Carolina distribution as in the Savannah River basin, the Wateree River and the Santee River both in the Cooper-Santee River basin; and the Waccamaw River of the Pee Dee River basin. Recently found in low numbers in three sites in the Pee Dee River drainage (Pocotaligo River at Brewington Lake; Lynches River, Waccamaw River) in South Carolina (Catena Group 2006 ...
Beijing (AsiaNews/Agencies) - A third of all fish species in the Yellow River have become extinct because of dams, shrinking water levels, over-fishing and pollution. According to official sources pollution in China has caused damages worth 30 years of economic growth.. The Yellow River used to be home to more than 150 species of fish, but a third of them are now extinct, including some precious ones, agriculture department sources said. Fishing has also dropped, falling 40 per cent from an annual average of 700 tonnes in the past.. It can be mainly blamed on hydropower projects that block fishs migration routes, declining water flow caused by scarce rainfall, over-fishing and severe pollution, the source said. Some 21,000 chemical plants are located on shores of Chinas rivers and coastline, about 11,000 along the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers. In 2005 the Yellow River alone received 4.35 billion tonnes of contaminated effluents, 88 million more than in 2004.. Provincial authorities reported ...
Many studies have examined whether longitudinal variation exists in stream fish communities. Despite the acknowledged importance of adjacent floodplains, no study has investigated longitudinal variation in fish communities in floodplain wetlands. I conducted research to determine if distinct fish communities exist between upper and lower floodplains reaches. I predicted that upper reach floodplains, where flooding is brief and intense, would be dominated by opportunistic fishes. In contrast, lower reach floodplains, which experience longer and more predictable flooding, would primarily consist of fishes specifically adapted to live and breed on the floodplain. To test this hypothesis, I examined fish populations along a gradient of discharge at floodplain sites along the lengths of the Oconee/Altamaha and Broad/Savannah river systems in eastern Georgia. Two unique communities were discovered related to stream reach, yet community utilization of reach-specific floodplains remains unclear. The ...

Pearl River is the easternmost city in Louisiana, located on the banks of the waterway that shares its name and adjacent to the remote, mysterious Honey Island Swamp. The river was known by local American Indian tribes for the abundant shells found within it. When French explorers arrived in the 1600s, they renamed the river for the contents of those shells - pearls. Pearl River (the city) began as a railroad town in the 1850s. Originally known as Halloo, for the exclamations of loggers shouting to each other from the banks of the Pearl River, its best known these days for its proximity to the Honey Island Swamp (in fact, Pearl Rivers nickname is The Home of the Honey Island Swamp). Nurmerous kayak and swamp tour operators can be found in Pearl River and its neighboring cities.

Title: Wildfire smoke cools summer river and stream water temperatures. Authors: David, Aaron T.; Asarian, J. Eli; Lake, Frank K.. Date: 2018. Source Water Resources Research. Abstract: To test the hypothesis that wildfire smoke can cool summer river and stream water temperatures by attenuating solar radiation and air temperature, we analyzed data on summer wildfire smoke, solar radiation, air temperatures, precipitation, river discharge, and water temperatures in the lower Klamath River Basin in Northern California. Previous studies have focused on the effect of combustion heat on water temperatures during fires and the effect of riparian vegetation losses on postfire water temperatures, but we know of no studies of the effects of wildfire smoke on river or stream water temperatures. Wildfire smoke is difficult to quantify, but we successfully used a newly available daily high-resolution (1 km) data set of aerosol optical thickness (AOT) derived from satellite imagery to represent smoke density ...
Contacts: Gabriel Singer, Thibault Datry. Climate change and biodiversity in river networks: Launch of the H2020 DRYvER project. Rivers, streams, lakes, wetlands and other aquatic environments are among the worlds most biodiverse ecosystems. They are also those most threatened by human activities. River networks also provide essential ecosystem services - such as drinking water, food and climate regulation - that enhance societys well-being. But climate change and humans growing water needs cause river networks to dry up around the world. The effects on biodiversity, the networks ecological integrity and the ecosystem services they provide are devastating. Today, scientists estimate that more than half of the worlds river networks are going dry, a phenomenon that is worsening dramatically around the planet. And yet, so far the scientific community, natural resource managers and legislators have devoted little attention to drying river networks, which are often not even on the publics ...
The Manawatū River is a major river of the lower North Island of New Zealand. The river has its headwaters to the northwest of Norsewood in the Ruahine Ranges of the Tararua District. It flows initially eastward before turning south-west near Ormondville, flowing 40 kilometres (25 mi) before turning north-west near Woodville. At this point the river enters the Manawatū Gorge. Beyond the gorge it again turns south-west, flowing through the city of Palmerston North, and finally becomes the Manawatū Estuary as it enters the Tasman Sea at Foxton Beach. The river, along with the more northern Whanganui River, gives its name to the Manawatū-Whanganui region. The rivers name comes from the Māori words manawa (heart, spirit) and tū (stand still, or depressed), therefore heart standing still with fear, or depressed spirit. Haunui was in pursuit of his wife and arrived at this river clutching his chest when he named this river. The river is unique among New Zealand rivers, starting on the east side ...
What interesting is that in the subsequent years, no investigative reporting that I know of has done on an in-depth report on the health of the Genesee River? Rarely is there even an article in any local news about the Genesee River. So, what does it mean that the Genesee River does not appear the worst rivers list in American Rivers (www.americanrivers.org)? It does not mean that American Rivers or any other environmental group has come to the Genesee River and conducted a full environmental study. What it does mean that no one has conducted a thorough environmental study on the Genesee River and sent that in to American Rivers. My point: The Genesee River could be very polluted, maybe one of the most toxic polluted rivers in the US. Who, without doing a compressive study, would know? The Genesee River was used as a chemical toilet for decades and few I suspect are drinking the water near our (the Rochester region) end of the river. Without a full testing of all our rivers, we cannot ...
Little is known of the occurrence of pesticides in urban streams compared to streams draining agricultural areas. Water samples from eight urban streams from across the United States were analyzed for 75 pesticides and seven transformation products. For six of the eight urban streams, paired agricultural streams were used for comparisons. The herbicides detected most frequently in the urban streams were prometon, simazine, atrazine, tebuthiuron, and metolachlor, and the insecticides detected most frequently were diazinon, carbaryl, chlorpyrifos, and malathion. In contrast to similar-sized agricultural streams, total insecticide concentrations commonly exceeded total herbicide concentrations in these urban streams. In general, the temporal concentration patterns in the urban streams were consistent with the characteristics of the local growing season. The insecticides carbaryl and diazinon exceeded criteria for the protection of aquatic life in many of the urban streams in the spring and summer. ...
Claims that rural communities and rural authorities in Wales were backwards conceal not only growing sensitivity to industrial river pollution, but also their active efforts to regulate the regions rivers. This article uses evidence from South Wales to explore rural responses to industrial river pollution and to provide the micro-contextualization essential for understanding how environmental nuisances were tackled around sites of pollution. Efforts to limit industrial effluent at both local and regional levels highlight strategies of control, the difficulties of intervention at the boundaries of authorities, and how rural authorities were not always peripheral to an urban metropole. This lack of passivity challenges the idea that river pollution interventions merely displaced rather than confronted the problem of pollution, providing insights into how rural authorities worked, and into how those living in rural communities turned to them to clean-up their environment.. ...
Streamwater nitrate dynamics in the River Hafren, Plynlimon, mid-Wales were investigated over decadal to sub-daily timescales using a range of statistical techniques. Long-term data were derived from weekly grab samples (1984-2010) and high-frequency data from 7 hourly samples (2007-2009) both measured at two sites: a headwater stream draining moorland and a downstream site below plantation forest.This study is one of the first to analyse upland streamwater nitrate dynamics across such a wide range of timescales and report on the principal mechanisms identified. The data analysis provided no clear evidence that the long term decline in streamwater nitrate concentrations was related to a decline in atmospheric deposition only; nitrogen deposition first increased and then decreased during the study period. Increased streamwater temperature and denitrification may also have contributed to the decline in stream nitrate concentrations, the former through increased N uptake rates and the latter ...
Beginning in northwestern Jacksonville, in Duval County, the river starts out as a creek. 0.03 miles (0.048 km) east of the source, the river is crossed by U.S. 1. 0.4 miles (0.64 km) downstream, the creek passes through the subdivision of River Falls. After this, the river widens into wetlands with a multitude of tributaries. 2.3 miles (3.7 km) downstream, a long tributary named the Little Trout River. It originates at the forest at the corner of U.S. 1 and Interstate 295. 2.1 miles (3.4 km) downstream, Lem Turner Road (State Road 115) crosses the river as the C Ray Greene Bridge. 2.2 miles (3.5 km) downstream, the river becomes brackish. There is also the Ribault River, the longest of the three main tributaries. 0.7 miles (1.1 km) downstream, Interstate 95 crosses the river as the Trout River Bridge. 0.4 miles (0.64 km) downstream is Moncrief Creek, the third and last tributary of the Trout River. 0.7 miles (1.1 km) downstream, U.S. Route 17 crosses the river, spanning 0.2 miles (0.32 km). ...
The surface distribution of CH4, photoproduction capacity of seawater for CO, and CH4 and CO microbial oxidation rates and turnover times were determined for the surface waters of the southeastern Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Paria as affected by the Orinoco River. Measurements were made during the spring (low river flow) and the fall (high river flow) in order to determine the influence of Orinoco River discharge on these parameters. Methane concentrations were generally lower in the fall than in the spring. Low CH4 oxidation rates and similar surface distributions were observed during both seasons. Methane oxidation in the river plume was significantly higher in the fall. Potential CO photoproduction and CO oxidation rates were generally higher during the fall. Possible effects of the Orinoco River on potential CO photoproduction capacity were observed as far as Puerto Rico. Turnover times for CH4 were in the order of years, whereas CO turnover times were in the order of hours. The Orinoco River ...

The Equilibrium Phosphorus Concentration (EPC0) of river bed sediments has been measured for a wide range of agricultural subcatchments and main river sites across two major eutrophic river basins: the Hampshire Avon and Herefordshire Wye catchments, to examine whether bed sediments are acting as sources or sinks of soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP) under low flows and times of greatest eutrophication risk. A conceptual reach-based model of interactions between bed sediment and river water has been used to estimate relative differences in bed-sediment SRP flux transfers. In this model, processes of SRP uptake and release are assumed to occur within an operationally defined 0.1 m river water boundary layer and the uptake and release of SRP is assumed to be driven by a differential between the EPC0 of the sediment and SRP concentration in the boundary layer. Most of the river monitoring sites in the Wye and Avon catchments had elevated SRP and boron (B) concentrations in the water column at low ...
Splays are common features of many rivers and deltas, forming as a result of overbank flooding and sediment deposition, but they have rarely been described from modern dryland settings. This paper investigates splay formation along the lower reaches of ephemeral rivers on the Northern Plains of arid central Australia. Here, splays vary from small, lobate or tongue-shaped features , 1 km long, to larger, elongate features up to ~ 4 km long, and are supplied with rare floodwater and sediment through well-defined breaches in the upper parts of the main channel banks. In proximal and medial parts, splay channels are incised up to ~ 2 m into pre-splay, fine-grained floodplain sediments but remain elevated between ~ 0.5 m and 2 m above the main channels. Only in the very distal parts are splay channels less deeply incised, either grading into the floodplain surface or terminating as sediment lobes that are deposited upon the floodplain. Aerial photographs and field observations indicate that many ...

water transport - though at the expense of permanently flooding many existing towns (including numerous ancient cultural relics) and causing large-scale changes in the local ecology.. Opponents of the dam point out that there are three different kinds of floods on the Yangtze River: floods which originate in the upper reaches, floods which originate in the lower reaches, and floods along the entire length of the river. They argue that the Three Gorges dam will actually make flooding in the upper reaches of the river worse and have little or no impact on floods which originate in the lower reaches. Twelve hundred years of low water marks on the river were recorded in the inscriptions and the carvings of carp at ...
The River Niger is the longest river passing through Nigeria, and also the longest river in West Africa. It is the third longest river on the African continent, after the Nile and Congo rivers. It extends through 2,597 miles surging through four other countries. Its main tributary is river Benue. The source of the Niger is the Guinea highlands in southeastern Guinea and discharges to the Atlantic Ocean through the Niger delta. The Niger has one of the most unusual routes of any of the major rivers in the world. It follows a northeasterly course towards the Sahara Desert before turning southeast to discharge in the Atlantic Ocean. The unusual geography is because it is two ancient rivers joined together to a single route. Niger river has thirty-six families of fresh water fish and around 250 species within them, of which 20 are unique to this environment. Other Niger fauna include the hippopotamus, three different types of crocodiles (including the Nile crocodile) and a variety of lizards. The ...
In 2014, the volunteer-based non-profit Urban Rivers experimented with installing floating rafts with native plants growing into the river to see how the introduction of platforms mimicking natural habitat might increase fish populations compared to fish habitat along the straight walls of the river. This installation led to the Wild Mile project There will be habitats designed for pollinators like bees and butterflies which in then will create the building blocks for more animals like insects, mussels, fish, turtles, bats, and birds. Research has been done to support methods for creating and sustaining habitat along the river. Ideas for attracting this fauna include: - hexagonal apiaries - floating wetlands - native plant palettes were chosen based on native status and wildlife value (specific plant palette matrix is available in the additional resources). - submerged habitats that will artfully peek out of the water - gourd birdhouses for Purple Martins - Large submerged concrete tubes for ...

Floridas longest river is a liquid chameleon. During its slow 310-mile northerly journey, the St. Johns River morphs from a marsh in Indian River County into a broad waterway with expansive views as it flows to northeast Florida and into the Atlantic Ocean.. The sawgrass marsh areas of the rivers headwaters are teeming with alligators, wading birds and waterfowl. In Brevard County, the marsh becomes a navigable river, gently twisting as it crawls north. Then the river reveals a tapestry of lakes, bottle-clear spring runs and darkwater tributaries. As the river leaves Putnam County for Clay and St. Johns counties, it widens considerably, in some locations exceeding two miles across. After passing Mayport in Duval County, the longest river contained in the state of Florida ends its journey where it mixes with the Atlantic Ocean.. The St. Johns River is an ancient intracoastal lagoon system, which gets its tea color from tannins, a natural color caused by decaying plant material. As sea levels ...

The Department continued to work in the Urban Rivers Team. The team focuses on the Woonasquatucket River until priority issues such as dioxins are controlled.. The Woonasquatucket River watershed encompasses most of the Town of Smithfield as well as parts of North Smithfield, Glocester, Johnston, and Providence. The 18 mile river arises in a rural area, flows into increasingly urbanized territory and ends at Waterplace Park in Providence. The River suffers from the cumulative impacts of industrial contaminants such as dioxins and PCBs in urban stretches. Other problems include excess nutrient loading, abandoned industrial sites, litter and illegal dumping of solid waste. While some stretches of the urban river bank are surprisingly healthy, others are degraded and provide poor habitat.. In 1999, the Department began work with the American Heritage River Steering Committee, the Urban Rivers Team, and the USEPA River Navigator to coordinate watershed efforts and to produce a State of the Watershed ...
Huron River watershed spans a land area of more than 900 square miles and drains water to the Huron River through hundreds of tributary creeks and streams. The river flows more than 125 miles from its headwaters at Big Lake, near Pontiac, to its mouth at Lake Erie. The rivers drainage area includes seven Michigan counties (Oakland, Livingston, Ingham, Jackson, Washtenaw, Wayne, Monroe), 63 municipal governments, and a half million residents. Upstream of Ann Arbor, the Huron is a relatively clean and clear river, making it ideal location to learn about stream ecology via snorkeling.. ...
The National Nuclear Security Administration on Friday reaffirmed its January decision to pick Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC to manage and operate the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge and Pantex Plant near Amarillo, Texas.. That earlier decision, announced almost 10 months ago, had been challenged in two rounds of bid protests. Those protests delayed the transition to a new contractor, and it wasnt clear Friday if the NNSAs new decision might also be challenged.. The five-year extendable contract, which could be worth up to $22.8 billion over 10 years, includes project management of the Uranium Processing Facility at Y-12 and an unexercised option for Savannah River Tritium Operations at the Savannah River Site near Aiken, S.C..

Sigi River is a very important fresh water resource in resident of Tanga region in Tanzania. Sigi River basin is one of the basins within Pangani main catchments contributing most of the recharge water into a man made reservoir named Mabayani Dam.. The SWAT model was applied to the Sigi Basin for modelling of the hydrological water components. The objective of this study is to evaluate the water balance of Mabayani reser-voir (dam) over the range of different years and to asses and evaluate the hydrological com-ponents of the catchments in relation to existing land use and stream flow prediction. The input data for this research were DEM, land use map, soil data, daily precipitation, daily min-imum and maximum temperature, dam management data, daily river discharge and dam wa-ter abstraction.. The sensitivity analysis of the model indicates that some hydrological controlling parameter can be identified without observed data. The sensitivity analysis indicates the flow is more sensitive to ...
University of Texas at Austin. New method -- the first physics-based look at the net effect of nitrate removal in the Mississippi network -- shows the filtering system operating at max capacity. A new method of measuring the interaction of surface water and groundwater along the length of the Mississippi River network adds fresh evidence that the networks natural ability to chemically filter out nitrates is being overwhelmed.. The research by hydrogeologists at The University of Texas at Austin, which appears in the May 11 edition of the journal Nature Geoscience, shows for the first time that virtually every drop of water coursing through 311,000 miles (500,000 kilometers) of waterways in the Mississippi River network goes through a natural filtering process as it flows to the Gulf of Mexico.. The analysis found that 99.6 percent of the water in the network passes through filtering sediment along the banks of creeks, streams and rivers.. Such a high level of chemical filtration might sound ...

The Snake River is a river in the U.S. states of Wyoming, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. It is a tributary of the Columbia River. The river rises in western Wyoming, and flows through the Snake River Plain in Idaho. It turns north, forming the border with Oregon and Idaho, and the border with Washington and Idaho. At Lewiston it turns west and flows through Washington to the Columbia River. The Shoshone and Nez Perce Indians lived on the Snake River. The Lewis and Clark Expedition was the first American expedition to sight the Snake River. The river later was part of the Oregon Trail. Many pioneers traveled down the river to settle in the fertile Willamette Valley in Oregon. There are fifteen dams on the Snake River. Some are for hydropower, some for irrigation, and some for navigation. ...
Ten antibiotics belonging to three groups (macrolides, fluoroquinolones and sulfonamides) were investigated in riverine runoff of the Pearl River Delta (PRD) and Pearl River Estuary (PRE), South China for assessing the importance of riverine runoff in the transportation of contaminants from terrestrial sources to the open ocean. All antibiotics were detected in the eight outlets with concentrations ranging from 0.7 to 127 ng L-1. The annual mass loadings of antibiotics from the PRD to the PRE and coast were 193 tons with 102 tons from the fluoroquinolone group. It showed that antibiotics decreased from the riverine outlets to the PRE and open ocean. Risk assessment showed that most of these antibiotics showed various ecological risks to the relevant aquatic organisms, in which ofloxacin (OFL), erythromycin (ETM) and ciprofloxacin (CIP) posed high ecological risks to the studied aquatic environments.

Downstream of the Mississippi River, the Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown keeps watch: a lecture report by Michael Macpherson. It was at a Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists lecture several years ago (2007) that scientist Paul Hamilton of the Canadian Museum of Nature came to Almonte to talk about Water Quality as part of our lecture series focusing on the Mississippi River Watershed. At that time Hamilton told us that the health of the Mississippi River, flowing through our towns on its way from Mazinaw Lake near Bon Echo to the Ottawa River, was similar to the health of rivers in relatively remote parts of Northern Europe. In other words, he considered the Mississippi River to be quite pristine. He also said, though, that it would take work to keep it that way.. The relatively good environmental health of the Mississippi River watershed was and still is good news for downstream areas such as the grand ...
View more ,A field study in the Pearl River Delta of China was conducted in order to describe to the spatial and seasonal variation of occurrence and concentrations of total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) in surface water and sediments. Petroleum hydrocarbons and isoprenoid alkanes were quantified by UV spectroscopy and gas chromatography with a mass selective detector. The concentrations of TPH ranged from 4.3 to 68.7 µg L−1 in surface water, and from 66.6 to 1445 µg g−1 in surface sediments. The ratios of pristine to phytane suggested that the main sources of TPH in the sediment were petroleum importation. The highest concentrations of TPH were present in the spring season. When compared with results from previous studies, it can be concluded that the Pearl River Delta was moderately polluted by TPH. No statistically significant correlations were observed between the concentrations of TPH in surface water and sediments ...

The Colorado River and its tributaries drain a complex provenance that includes multiple tectonic elements of the Proterozoic to Phanerozoic Cordilleran margin. In order to provide (1) a more reliable estimate than that reported in the literature for the composition of Holocene Colorado River sand, and (2) a standard for comparison with ancient sandstones that may contain detritus derived from a similar complex provenance, 25 unconsolidated samples were collected along the lower reaches of the Colorado River for detailed petrological examination. Each specimen was artificially consolidated with epoxy, thin sectioned, and stained for feldspar. Each author, utilizing the Gazzi-Dickinson point-count method, counted 400 points per sample; the results from the two point-count operators were averaged. The average Colorado River sand in our collection is medium-grained, moderately to well sorted, and composed of 66.2%Q, 18.1%F, 14.7%L, and 1.3% miscellaneous grains. Q, on average, is composed of 89% ...
The natural abundance of nitrogen and oxygen isotopes in nitrate can be a powerful tool for identifying the source of nitrate in streamwater in forested watersheds, because the two main sources of nitrate, atmospheric deposition and microbial nitrification, have distinct δ18O values. Using a simple mixing model, we estimated the relative fractions in streamwater derived from these sources for two forested watersheds with markedly different streamwater nitrate outputs. In this study, we monitored δ15N and δ18O of nitrate biweekly in atmospheric deposition and in streamwater for 20 months at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, New Hampshire, USA (moderate nitrogen export), and monthly in streamwater at the Bowl Research Natural Area, New Hampshire, USA (high nitrogen export). For rain, δ18O values ranged from +47 to +77‰ (mean: +58‰) and δ15N from −5 to +1‰ (mean: −3‰); for snow, δ18O values ranged from +52 to +75‰ (mean: +67‰) and δ15N from −3...

This image shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal January. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2620 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Catlins River Mouth, located 21 km away (13 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.. According to the model, the dominant wind at Catlins River Mouth blows from the S. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Catlins River Mouth. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a ...
Stock transfers from within or introductions from outside the Snake River were unreported prior to the mid-1900s. Since then, transfers have been extensive. Here, we briefly review the history of artificial propagation and summarize the outplantings of spring and summer chinook salmon in the Snake River.. Chapman et al. (1991) listed 24 facilities in the Snake River that have produced, held, or released various life stages of spring or summer chinook salmon since the early 1960s. Currently, major hatcheries producing spring or summer chinook salmon in the Snake River include Sawtooth, McCall, Rapid River, Pahsimeroi, Dworshak, Kooskia, Lyons Ferry, and Lookingglass. Satellite facilities for brood-stock capture, juvenile rearing or conditioning, and juvenile release are associated with most of the hatcheries. Two additional hatcheries, the Clearwater and Nez Perce Tribal Hatcheries, are planned for construction in the near future. Stocks used in most hatcheries were derived from various exotic ...

The river measures about 1,838 kilometres (1,142 mi) in length and starts in the Serra do Mar in Brazil,[4][5][6][7][8] where the Canoas River and the Pelotas River are joined, at about 200 metres (660 ft) above mean sea level. In this stage the river goes through uneven, broken terrain, forming rapids and falls. Its course through Rio Grande do Sul is not navigable. An unusual feature of the Uruguay River is a submerged canyon. This canyon formed during the Ice Age, when the climate was drier and the river was narrower. Its depth is up to 100 metres (330 ft) below the bottom of the river channel and it is 1/8 to 1/3 as wide as the river.[7][9] The canyon is only visible in two places, one of which is the Moconá Falls (also called the Yucumã Falls). However, the falls are not visible for 150 days per year and become more like rapids when they are not visible. Unlike most waterfalls, the Moconá Falls are parallel to the river, not perpendicular. The falls are 10 metres (33 ft) to 12 metres (39 ...
The damming of Shoalhaven completely transformed the river and had a profoundly negative effective on the local environment, as is apparent in the damming of many rivers worldwide. Paine spent time interviewing the community surrounding the river to capture local perspectives. This included Aboriginal men who offered a critical understanding of the river from the perspective of traditional owners. His ambisonic field recordings captured the environmental soundscapes of the river, from the jumping fish to the temporal flow of the landscape itself (Paine, 2011). Present in the Landscape was presented as a six-channel composition and has also been published as a stereo recording. The diverse literature inspired by rivers is impossible to capture in a short article, but this collection of works would not be complete without mention of Annea Lockwoods trilogy of river sound maps. The trilogy begins with A Sound Map of the Hudson River (1982), and is followed by A Sound Map of the Danube (2005) and A ...

Abstract. Benzene (C6H6) and toluene (C7H8) are toxic to humans and the environment. They are also important precursors of ground-level ozone and secondary organic aerosols and contribute substantially to severe air pollution in urban areas in China. Discrepancies exist between different bottom-up inventories for benzene and toluene emissions in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) and Hong Kong (HK), which are emission hot spots in China. This study provides top-down estimates of benzene and toluene emissions in the PRD and HK using atmospheric measurement data from a rural site in the area, Heshan, an atmospheric transport model, and an inverse modeling method. The model simulations captured the measured mixing ratios during most pollution episodes. For the PRD and HK, the benzene emissions estimated in this study for 2010 were 44 (12-75) and 5 (2-7) Gg yr−1 for the PRD and HK, respectively, and the toluene emissions were 131 (44-218) and 6 (2-9) Gg yr−1, respectively. Temporal and spatial ...

Each year, scuba divers in the Hudson River randomly pick rocks from the hard or rocky areas of the river bottom. They count the number of mussels attached to the rocks, and measure their shell sizes. Scientists use a device called a benthic grab to look for zebra mussels in soft-bottom areas, and they count the mussels they find in these samples too.. Since scientists know approximately how much of the river bottom is rocky and how much is soft, they can combine these averages for an annual estimate of the total number of mussels in the freshwater portion of the river, as well as the average per unit of river bottom.. This graph shows that substantial numbers of zebra mussels were first observed in the Hudson River in 1992. At that time the average population size was 4,000 per square meter of river bottom. We can see that since then the numbers have changed each year, from a high of 4,000 mussels/m2 to a low of about 500 mussels/m2 in 2003… (step the viewer through the sample graph). ...
Humans have played an important role in fluvial systems because of the impact of their land-use activities, frequently leading to degradation of environmental conditions. Rivers, which are the primary agents in sediment transport, have thus been subject to changes in sediment fluxes. The Suriname River has been affected by anthropogenic ... read more activities since colonial times, and has experienced strong discharge and sediment-load changes since the construction of the Afobaka Dam in 1964. The rivers estuary sediments largely consist of fine-grained sediments, originating, ultimately, from the Amazon River and transported by the strong tidal current. The influence of this tidal current is diminished at the head of the estuary, allowing the river flow to become dominant. Also remarkable is the interaction of the Suriname River and the westward-migrating mudbanks which is evident in the changing magnitude and volume of Braamspunt, a mudcape located at the mouth of the estuary. The regulated ...
Many in Pearl River would consider their sight to be their most important sense, so it is logical to look after your vision by paying regular visits to the optometrist. But another part of maintaining good vision is to know when something is wrong, and to seek treatment for it. Here are some of the most common eye conditions, their symptoms, and the vision correction methods that can help remedy them.
UMESC Publications Selecting a distributional assumption for modelling relative densities of benthic macroinvertebrates. Gray, B. R., 2005, Selecting a distributional assumption for modelling relative densities of benthic macroinvertebrates: Ecological Modelling, v. 185, p. 1-12.. Abstract. The selection of a distributional assumption suitable for modelling macroinvertebrate density data is typically challenging. Macroinvertebrate data often exhibit substantially larger variances than expected under a standard count assumption, that of the Poisson distribution. Such overdispersion may derive from multiple sources, including heterogeneity of habitat (historically and spatially), differing life histories for organisms collected within a single collection in space and time, and autocorrelation. Taken to extreme, heterogeneity of habitat may be argued to explain the frequent large proportions of zero observations in macroinvertebrate data. Sampling locations may consist of habitats defined ...

The federal-state Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Task Force has been trying to get states along the river to reduce their use of fertilizer, and the amount ending up in the river, since 1998. Voluntary reduction efforts have been largely unsuccessful. Pahl said the modeling of nutrients diverted from the river to the basin assumes that the amount of nutrients carried by the river doesnt change from levels measured during the past 50 years.. In the basin, nutrients might still impair oxygen in the water, but not to levels violating state Department of Environmental Quality standards, the Corps environmental statement concludes.. Another area of uncertainty is the potential for block faulting: Whether the weight of sediment in newly built wetlands could cause the geologic blocks of the underlying earth to sink rapidly. Pahl said the environmental statement acknowledges theres a chance that would happen, but assumes it will not.. Just because theres a fault somewhere, what is our ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Benzene Dynamics and Biodegradation in Alluvial Aquifers Affected by River Fluctuations. AU - Batlle Aguilar, Jordi. AU - Morasch, Barbara. AU - Hunkeler, Daniel. AU - Brouyère, Serge. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - The spatial distribution and temporal dynamics of a benzene plume in an alluvial aquifer strongly affected by river fluctuations was studied. Benzene concentrations, aquifer geochemistry datasets, past river morphology, and benzene degradation rates estimated in situ using stable carbon isotope enrichment were analyzed in concert with aquifer heterogeneity and river fluctuations. Geochemistry data demonstrated that benzene biodegradation was on-going under sulfate reducing conditions. Long-term monitoring of hydraulic heads and characterization of the alluvial aquifer formed the basis of a detailed modeled image of aquifer heterogeneity. Hydraulic conductivity was found to strongly correlate with benzene degradation, indicating that low hydraulic conductivity areas are ...
Algeria and Chad together cover about 9% of the total Niger River basin, but there are almost no renewable water resources in these areas.. The area of the Niger River basin in Guinea is only 4% of the total area of the basin, but the sources of the Niger River are located in this country. The quantity of water entering Mali from Guinea (40 km3/yr) is greater than the quantity of water entering Nigeria from Niger (36 km3/yr), about 1800 hen further downstream. This is due among other reasons to the enormous reduction in runoff in the inner delta in Mali through seepage and evaporation combined with almost no runoff from the whole of the left bank in Mali and Niger.. The most important areas of the Niger basin are located in Mali, Niger and Nigeria (25 % in each of these three countries). Mali and Niger are almost entirely dependent on the Niger River for their water resources. In the case of Niger nearly 90% of its total water resources originates outside its borders (the Niger River and other ...
Sufficient levels of dissolved oxygen is vital for most forms of aquatic life, including fish, but extensive pollution from riverside households and industries can drastically reduce those levels. Fertilizers and other chemical pollutants, which are often directly dumped into rivers or else leach away from nearby farms and factories, pose especial dangers to the health of rivers in parts of Malaysia.. Needless to say, Sarawak is hardly alone in the country when it comes to the blight of river pollution. In Penang, for instance, recent investigations have found that long stretches of several local waterways are little more than smelly and unsightly stretches of putrid water. In all, of the nations 473 rivers, only half, or 244, are considered clean with the rest of them having been polluted to varying degrees. More than 40 rivers have been classified as extremely polluted.. In these latter rivers only a few hardy species can survive. Species like cockles and mussels cant live in Sungai ...

Impacts of Hydropower Operation on Water Supply from Lower Colorado River in Texas. The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) of Texas is both a water and energy supplier to a large area of Central Texas. LCRA generates approximately 10 percent of its power from hydroelectric power plants on the six dams in the Highland Lakes system of reservoirs. To improve power production, LCRA has investigated alternative operating procedures to increase the winter scheduling of hydroelectric power generation in the upper reservoirs of the Highland Lakes system without adversely impacting available water supplies. A methodology using both optimization and simulation techniques was developed to evaluate the ability of the hydroelectric facilities to meet weather-related winter peaking requirements. A linear programming procedure determined the hourly power generation schedule, over a 24 hour period, that maximized the total amount of power generated over the six hours of peak power demand. The full installed
