Geographic Information System Planning for Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering Applications at the Savannah River Site, SC
... The Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC) of the Savannah River Site is in the planning stages of compiling a geological, geophysical, and seismological data base on an industry standard Geographic Information System (GIS). The system will serve as a tool for management and integration of already collected site data, planning for additional investigations, and for special studies such as seismic hazard and risk analyses for the Savannah River Site (SRS).http://cedb.asce.org/CEDBsearch/record.jsp?dockey=0084660
Frontiers | Microbial responses to changes in flow status in temporary headwater streams: a cross-system comparison |...
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 ...https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmicb.2015.00522/full
Burdekin River Flood Warning System
BURDEKIN RIVER CATCHMENT - ASSESSMENT OF THE FLOOD POTENTIAL. Major flooding requires a large scale rainfall situation over the Burdekin River catchment. The completion of the Burdekin Falls Dam in the 1980's has reduced to some extent the occurrence of major flooding in the lower reaches. Major flooding still occurs, however, in the lower reaches from the runoff produced by heavy rainfall and flooding in the lower Burdekin, Bowen and Bogie River catchments. The following can be used as a rough guide to the likelihood of flooding in the catchment:. Average catchment rainfalls of in excess of 200mm in 48 hours may cause moderate to major flooding and traffic disabilities to develop, particularly in low-lying areas of the Burdekin River catchment downstream of the Burdekin Falls Dam and extending into the Burdekin River delta area. Average catchment rainfalls of in excess of 300mm in 48 hours may cause major flooding and traffic disabilities to develop, particularly in low-lying areas of the ...http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/flood/brochures/burdekin/burdekin.shtml

Manawatu River - Wikipedia
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 river's 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 ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manawatu_River
Upland streamwater nitrate dynamics across decadal to sub-daily timescales: a case study of Plynlimon, Wales - NERC Open...
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 ...http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/508964/
Waikato River - Wikipedia
The Waikato River is the longest river in New Zealand, running for 425 kilometres (264 mi) through the North Island. It rises in the eastern slopes of Mount Ruapehu, joining the Tongariro River system and flowing through Lake Taupo, New Zealand's largest lake. It then drains Taupo at the lake's northeastern edge, creates the Huka Falls, and flows northwest through the Waikato Plains. It empties into the Tasman Sea south of Auckland, at Port Waikato. It gives its name to the Waikato Region that surrounds the Waikato Plains. The present course of the river was largely formed about 17,000 years ago. Contributing factors were climate warming, forest being reestablished in the river headwaters and the deepening, rather than widening, of the existing river channel. The channel was gradually eroded as far up river as Piarere, leaving the old Hinuera channel high and dry. The remains of the old river path can be clearly seen at Hinuera where the cliffs mark the ancient river edges. The river's main ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waikato_River

The river ecology is under threat from human activity. The river originates in the Oban Hills, in the Cross River National Park, and flows southwards to the Cross River estuary. Its lower reaches are tidal, with broad mud flats. and drain the eastern coast of the city of Calabar. Human activity in the Great Kwa basin has traditionally been limited to small scale farming, aquaculture and artisanal fisheries, mainly for shrimp. However, Calabar is growing, due in part to the Calabar Free Trade Zone, causing growing numbers of houses and factories to be built in the freshwater and mangrove swamps of the Great Kwa. The University of Calabar covers a 17-hectare (42-acre) site between the Great Kwa River and the Calabar River. The university has acquired ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Kwa_River
Methane and carbon monoxide production, oxidation, and turnover times in the Caribbean Sea as influenced by the Orinoco River -...
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 ...http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/92JC02769/abstract
Mithi River - Wikipedia
The Mithi River also known as "'Mahim River"' is a river on Salsette Island, the island of the city of Mumbai, India. It is a confluence of tail-water discharges of the Powai and Vihar lakes. The river is seasonal and rises during the monsoons. The overflowing lakes also contribute to the river flow, which is stopped by a dam at other times. During this season, the river is a favourite with anglers, who can catch large fish that have escaped from the lakes. Fishing is banned there. The international airport is located right next to the section of river at Andheri. The river originates from the overflow of Vihar Lake and also receives the overflows from the Powai Lake about 2 km later. It flows for a total of 15 km before it meets the Arabian Sea at Mahim Creek flowing through residential and industrial complexes of Powai, Saki Naka, Kurla, Kalina, Vakola, Bandra-Kurla complex, Dharavi and Mahim. The river has an average width of 5 metres in the upper ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mithi_River

River - Wikipedia
A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. In some cases a river flows into the ground and becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water. Small rivers can be referred to using names such as stream, creek, brook, rivulet, and rill. There are no official definitions for the generic term river as applied to geographic features, although in some countries or communities a stream is defined by its size. Many names for small rivers are specific to geographic location; examples are "run" in some parts of the United States, "burn" in Scotland and northeast England, and "beck" in northern England. Sometimes a river is defined as being larger than a creek, but not always: the language is vague. Rivers are part of the hydrological cycle. Water ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River
Splay Formation Along the Lower Reaches of Ephemeral Rivers on the Northern Plains of Arid Central Australia | Journal of...
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 ...https://pubs.geoscienceworld.org/sepm/jsedres/article-abstract/75/4/636/114209/splay-formation-along-the-lower-reaches-of?redirectedFrom=fulltext

Talk:Metolius River - Wikipedia
The Metolius River flows 28.6 miles from Metolius Springs through the Deschutes National Forest emptying into Lake Billy Chinook and ultimately the Deschutes River. The upper 11.5 miles of the river have a number of popular recreation sites for catch-and-release fishing, whitewater rafting, picnicking, and camping. The lower 17 miles run along the boundary of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. This section of the river is a primitive area where motorized vehicles are not allowed. Because of its unique beauty, the Metolius River was officially designated a Wild and Scenic River in 1988.. Facilities along the upper river include a number of developed campgrounds, hiking trails, and picnic areas. The Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery is also located in this area. Rafters enjoy Class III-IV rapids in the upper river. Only hatchery breed rainbow trout, kokanee salmon, and whitefish can be taken from the upper river. Additional fishing restrictions apply to specific areas along the river ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Metolius_River
