Modeling best management practices in a small watershed using process based modeling approaches and GIS: The cases of row cropping, filter strip, and grassed waterway
Soil erosion is a problem that causes both the loss of valuable soil and water quality degradation by sediment and attached nutrients and pollutants. Soil loss and sediment discharge to waterbodies can be prevented and ...
Development of a formal verification and validation database for the computational mass-flow simulator Titan2D
Titan2D is a numerical model developed for the purpose of simulating dry, cohesionless, granular avalanches over digitized elevation models (DEMs) of natural terrain. This includes certain classes of geological mass flows ...
Using multi-frequency synthetic aperture radar to develop regional-scale groundwater maps
The majority of accessible, potable water exists as ground water. Understanding regional-scale, ground-water transport is therefore vital to water resource management. Considering surface water as an outcropping of shallow ...
Contextually-based framework for improved data reduction in regional scale analytic element groundwater models
This dissertation introduced a conceptual framework for improved data reduction for numerical environmental models. Its key conceptual idea was a simulation-driven feature simplification, which based a simplification ...
Insertion ant colony optimization for solving the traveling salesman problem
Inspired from the ant foraging behavior, the ant colony algorithm has provided a new approach for solving discrete optimization problems--the traveling salesman problem (TSP), for instance, is usually tested as the benchmark. ...
