- Scanning Sonar Survey Report- Buffalo Bill Power Plant Tailrace - This report demonstrates the utility of using a high resolution scanning sonar imaging/profiling system to evaluate underwater infrastructure at a Reclamation hydropower plant.
- Use of Temperature Control Curtains to Modify Reservoir Release Temperatures - This paper presents performance data collected near temperature control curtains in Lewiston and Whiskeytown Reservoirs. Monitoring included extensive temperature profiling and velocity profiling using an ADCP.
- Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler Measurements near the Proposed Southern Nevada Water System Intake No. 3 in Lake Mead, Nevada - Velocity profile measurements in reservoirs can be a challenge because of the low velocities and the large depths. However, these measurements are necessary for understanding reservoir ecology and the hydraulics of reservoir releases with respect to water quality. This report documents acoustic velocity measurements taken in one of the largest reservoirs in the U.S.
- Glen Canyon Dam Multi-Level Intake Structure Hydraulic Model Study. This report is the final product for the hydraulic model study of the multi-level intake structure design. This modification to Glen Canyon Dam is designed to provide selective withdrawal capability for the power plant penstock intakes.
- Experiences using Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) for Physical Model Calibrations. This paper was prepared and submitted for the Third International Symposium on Ecohydraulics to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, July 13-16, 1999.
- Measuring Selective Withdrawal Characteristics using an Argonaut Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter in Folsom Lake, California. As part of a project to construct a selective withdrawal structure for an M&I water intake at Folsom Dam, the SELECT model was used to compute the near-field velocity profiled in a thermally stratified reservoir.
