        The hydraulic relationship between the stream and aquifer can be altered from hydraulic connection to disconnection when the pumping rate exceeds the maximum seepage flux of the streambed. This Cited by: An automated extraction tool was developed through the model builder technique in ArcGIS environment to delineate the basin morphometry. The basic requirements to run this tool are a SRTM data, and a pour point shapefile. The developed model will create necessary data required for morphometric analysis after the processing of the input data. The output from this model .

Overview of design discharges. Probability. Gage analysis for flow frequency.   A first-order stream is the smallest of the world's streams and consists of small tributaries. These are the streams that flow into and "feed" larger streams but do not normally have any water flowing into them. Also, first- and second-order streams generally form on steep slopes and flow quickly until they slow down and meet the next order Author: Amanda Briney.

Ephemeral streams: hydraulic factors and their relation to the drainage net by Luna Bergere Leopold Download PDF EPUB FB2

The method developed for determining this interrelation allows an integration of the geographic and physiographic characteristics of a drainage basin with the channel characteristics; specifically, the interrelation of the length, number, and drainage area of streams of various sizes with their respective discharge, width, depth, velocity, slope, channel roughness, and.

[Luna B Leopold; John P Miller; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. These interrelations show that stream order is related to stream length, number of streams, drainage area, and discharge by simple exponential functions.

The relation of discharge to width, depth, velocity, slope, and other hydraulic factors can be approximated by simple power functions. Thus, any pair of these factors is related by exponential or power functions. The File Size: 4MB.

Meander hydromorphology of ephemeral streams: Similarities and differences with perennial rivers. The geomorphology, hydrology and processes of ephemeral streams are poorly known and studies on the geomorphic characteristics of ephemeral meandering streams (EMS) are even less investigated.

Culvert and road locations have modified drainage patterns of ephemeral streams 2 and 3. Locations A and B become potential failure sites. Stream 3 is forced to accept more water below B due to inadequate drainage at A.

Estimating runoff. An ephemeral stream is one that flows only in direct response to precipitation. It receives little or no water from springs and no long-continued supply from melting snow or other sources (Bryan, ). By their nature, these streams are most common in arid and semiarid regions of the earth where precipitation is scant and a moisture deficiency exists most of the time.

Streams are a major part of the erosional process, working in conjunction with weathering and mass wasting. Much of the surface landscape is controlled by stream erosion, evident to anyone looking out of an airplane window. Streams are a major source of water, waste disposal, and transportation for.

The literature on ephemeral streams in general is not rich, and only one paper by Li et al. () was found to deal specifically with a modern example of ephemeral.

From the consistency with which rivers of all sizes increase in size downstream, it can be inferred that the physical laws governing the formation of the channel of a great river are the same as those operating in a small one. One step towards understanding the mechanisms of operation is to describe many rivers of various by: Hydraulic Factors.

Hydraulic factors include depth, slope, and velocity of a stream. These factors are the characteristics which directly produce bank cutting, sediment transport, and the like.

Hydraulic factors tend to change channel cross-sectional shape, pool and riffle formation, and meander Size: 1MB.

In the southeastern United States, average annual discharge (Q) for surface streams scales linearly with drainage area A, allowing drainage area to be used in place of discharge (Schumm,Hack,Brush, ).Base-flow discharge in karst regions is also shown to be directly related to drainage area (Hess et al.,Hess and White,Quinlan and Ray, ).Cited by: The downstream hydraulic geometry relationships, i.e., the downstream variation of the water surface width W, the hydraulic depth H, and the mean velocity V at a constant flow frequency, represent the adaptation of channel geometry and flow dynamics to a given hydrological regime.

It has been reported that W, H, and V all tend to increase in the downstream direction for most Cited by: 6.
