Rex Bingham, A. Dale Magoun, Stephen P. Cobb. ABSTRACT: The term flashiness reflects the frequency and rapidity of short term changes in streamflow, especially during runoff events. Flashiness is an important component of a stream's hydrologic regime. A variety of land use and land management changes may lead to increased or decreased flashiness, often to the detriment of aquatic by: To provide insightful information on water quality management, it is crucial to improve the understanding of the complex biogeochemical cycles of Chesapeake Bay (CB), so a three-dimensional unstructured grid-based water quality model (ICM based on the finite-volume coastal ocean model (FVCOM)) was configured for CB. To fully accommodate the CB study, the water quality simulations were Cited by:

Final report. Research report,   Sediment toxicity and benthic macroinvertebrate community structure were measured as one component of a study cohceived to determine the distribution and effect of sediment contamination in tidal freshwater portions of the Potomac and Anacostia rivers in the Washington, D.C., area.

The general traits of these three levels are described in the introductory chapter of this book. For monitoring fluvial systems, as with other geologic systems, selection of a high-level method (i.e., level 3) does not negate the concurrent use of the lessintense, sophisticated methods (i.e., levels 1 and 2).
