The Relationships Between Climatic And Hydrological Changes In The Upper Mississippi River Basin: A Swat And Multi-Gcm Study, Er Lu, Eugene S. Takle, Manoj Jha 2010 Iowa State University

The Relationships Between Climatic And Hydrological Changes In The Upper Mississippi River Basin: A Swat And Multi-Gcm Study, Er Lu, Eugene S. Takle, Manoj Jha

Geological and Atmospheric Sciences Publications

Changes in major climatic and hydrological quantities in the upper Mississippi River basin and their interrelationships are studied with the Soil and Water Assessment Tool being driven by the contemporary climate and future scenario simulations of 10 global models in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Data Archive. Although the seasonal cycles of climate and hydrological quantities simulated by the 10 models have differences, the ensemble is very close to the observation. Ensemble predictions show that with warming in all months, precipitation decreases in summer but increases in all other seasons. Correspondingly, streamflow decreases in all seasons except winter ...

Sustainable Portland: Implementation Series 3, New England Environmental Finance Center

Climate Change

This report is the third in a series of efforts by students at the Muskie School of Public Service, Community Planning and Development Master’s program, in a core class called “Sustainable Communities.” In this course students seek to understand principles of sustainability and how efforts to implement Sustainability programs can become more successful. The report assembles term papers students completed on particular efforts by municipalities, universities, and other groups to achieve sustainability goals. Students worked on each project in a service learning format with real world clients. They were asked to fashion their papers around lessons learned by other ...


Minimun Riparian Buffer Width For Maintaining Water Quality And Habitat Along Stevens Creek, Sammi Bray 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Minimun Riparian Buffer Width For Maintaining Water Quality And Habitat Along Stevens Creek, Sammi Bray

Environmental Studies Undergraduate Student Theses

ABSTRACT Riparian buffer zones are important sites of biodiversity, sediment trapping, pollutant removal, and hydrologic regulation that have significant implications for both people and wildlife. Urbanization’s influence on and need for adequate water quality increases the need for careful planning in regards to riparian areas. Wildlife are key components in the ecosystem functions of riparian zones and require consideration in peri-urban planning as well. This study reviews relevant literature to determine the recommended minimum riparian buffer width for maintaining water quality and habitat along Stevens Creek in Lincoln, Nebraska. Only sources that listed a specific purpose related to water ...

Alaska Spartina Prevention, Detection And Response Plan, Vanessa Howard Morgan, Mark Sytsma 2010 Portland State University

Alaska Spartina Prevention, Detection And Response Plan, Vanessa Howard Morgan, Mark Sytsma

Center for Lakes and Reservoirs Publications and Presentations

This Alaska Spartina Prevention and Response Plan reviews the known impacts, biology, and invasion history of Spartina on the west coast. It outlines strategies for prevention, early detection and efficient organization of rapid response efforts following the confirmation of an infestation. The goal of the plan is to prevent the establishment of any Spartina populations and to eradicate established infestations if detected within the State’s estuaries or coastal wetlands. Five objectives and strategies are described and 31 specific tasks are outlined to achieve this goal. These include: • Prevention of establishment through vector and source population control. • Plan coordination by ...

Conservation Implications Of Distinct Genetic Structuring In The Endangered Freshwater Fish Nannoperca Oxleyana (Percichthyidae), James Knight, Catherine Nock, Martin Elphinstone, Peter Baverstock 2010 Southern Cross University

Conservation Implications Of Distinct Genetic Structuring In The Endangered Freshwater Fish Nannoperca Oxleyana (Percichthyidae), James Knight, Catherine Nock, Martin Elphinstone, Peter Baverstock

Martin S Elphinstone

The maintenance of genetic diversity and gene flow in threatened species is a vital consideration for recovery programs. The endangered Oxleyan pygmy perch Nannoperca oxleyana has a fragmented distribution within coastal freshwater drainages of southern Queensland and northern New South Wales, Australia. In the present study, mitochondrial DNA control region variation was used to assess genetic diversity and structure across the geographical range of this species. Haplotypic diversity was highest in a small NSW subcatchment south of Evans Head (h = 0.594) followed by Marcus Creek in Queensland (h = 0.475). Distinct genetic differentiation was evident among the Queensland localities ...

Use Of Fluorimetry To Evaluate Atrazine Toxicity To Phytoplankton Communities, Tiffany Zananski, Michael Twiss, Timothy Mihuc 2010 SUNY Plattsburgh

Use Of Fluorimetry To Evaluate Atrazine Toxicity To Phytoplankton Communities, Tiffany Zananski, Michael Twiss, Timothy Mihuc

Timothy Mihuc

Toxicity of atrazine was determined for natural phytoplankton communities in lake water samples from Missisquoi Bay (Lake Champlain, CA, US) at monthly intervals from May to August 2005 in order to assess how this herbicide could affect phytoplankton dynamics. Atrazine was added at 0, 5, 20, and 50 μ g L− 1 in 14 L treatments and incubated under simulated ambient light conditions (43 μ mol m− 2 s− 1). Phytoplankton community composition changes in the treatments were followed using a phytoplankton-specific fluorometer (FluoroProbe) and size fractionated filtration and analysis of extracted chlorophyll-a. Phycocyanin-rich Cyanobacteria decreased with increasing atrazine concentration ...
