Discharge of Selected Rivers of the World: Mean Monthly and Extreme Discharges, v.3 (Studies & Reports in Hydrology)Author: Unesco.

The Global River Discharge Database development efforts represent the first step in a continually evolving compilation of river discharge information. One of the primary sources of information for the database development was the UNESCO river archives and the series of publications entitled "The Discharge of Selected Rivers of the World" which.

Get this from a library. Discharge of selected rivers of Canada = Débit de certains cours d'eau du Canada. [Jacqueline Demers; Canadian National Committee for. The first 10 rivers represent the highest discharge of all world rivers, the Amazon having discharge equal to the combined discharge of the next seven largest rivers.

Basin areas of these rivers vary from (Amazon) to (Mekong) ×10 3 km 2, and runoffs vary from (Amazon) to mm y −1 (Mississippi). Perhaps, the most lasting result of this effort was the compilation of a comprehensive global river discharge database “The Discharge of Selected Rivers of the World” which was published in book form from through with some updates in The digitized version of this data compendium served as the basis of the GRDC data archive.

The original UNESCO site and discharge data were entered from a hardcopy series of publications entitled "The Discharge of Selected Rivers of the World" which were published in book form from through The series has served as an important source of information on approximately stations.

The Amazon is generally considered the world's second-longest river, after the Nile, with a length of about 6, km (4, mi). Channel-Forming Discharge Selection in River Restoration Design Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Hydraulic Engineering (7) July.

Sediment transport equation assessment for selected rivers in Malaysia Conference Paper (PDF Available) in International Journal of River Basin Management 3(3). The Sheshpeer Spring discharge regime was observed daily during the wet season and once every three weeks during the rest of the study period from March to November (Figure ).The recession coefficients (α) were evaluated using the Maillet equation ().The first and second recession periods resulted with α equal to – and – Explores how these rivers (the planet's two longest rivers, which flow through African deserts and Amazon jungles) came to exist, their place in history, what makes each unusual, and environmental challenges.

The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean.

Rivers provide the primary link between land and sea. Utilizing the world's largest database, River Discharge to the Coastal Ocean presents a detailed analysis and synthesis of the processes affecting fluvial discharge of water, sediment and dissolved solids.

The ways in which climatic variation, episodic events, and anthropogenic activities – past, present. Rivers are the great shapers of terrestrial landscapes. Very few points on Earth above sea level do not lie within a drainage basin.

Even points distant from the nearest channel are likely to be influenced by that channel. Tectonic uplift raises rock thousands of meters above sea level. Precipitation falling on the uplifted terrain concentrates into channels that carry sediment Author: Ellen Wohl. [1] This paper presents a quantitative estimation of the impact of reservoirs on discharge and irrigation water supply during the 20th century at global, continental, and river basin scale.

Compared to a natural situation the combined effect of reservoir operation and irrigation extractions decreased mean annual discharge to oceans and significantly changed the timing Cited by: Cambridge Core - Oceanography and Marine Science - River Discharge to the Coastal Ocean - by John D.

MillimanCited by: A river wordsearch based on the top 20 longest rivers in the British Isles. In this activity, the pupils have to use an atlas or an online mapping software like Google Earth to identify the 15 longest rivers in the World on the map.

The pupils develop their locational knowledge of rivers and for an extension activity, the pupils can list the. The resultant discharge time series for the Mission and Aransas rivers reflected the natural discharge variability of very low baseflows occasionally punctuated by extreme stormflows [16,18,21].

The tidal rating curve method for estimating tidally-influenced baseflow river discharge was shown to provide a new, simple, and inexpensive.

Reviews “Environmental Flows: Saving Rivers in the Third Millennium is well written, hangs together well and reads smoothly. The book achieves the aim of the author, which is to provide a single source of information on environmental flows Indeed, I wish that this book had been published when I started my research degree!”—Emma Neachell, University of.

The H2O chemical science of selected rivers at Kota Marudu, Sabah, were studied based on its major ion chemical science and its suitableness for imbibing and irrigation propose.

This survey was conducted for four months included August and November and besides February and March Ten trying Stationss were chosen around Kota. Rivers -- Colorado. See also what's at your library, or elsewhere.

Broader terms: Rivers; Rivers -- United States; Colorado; Narrower terms: Cache La Poudre River (Colo.) Crystal. This study compiles the annual peak discharge records of rivers from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) gauges to determine the rate (c) at which discharge and drainage increase downstream. The peak annual discharge records were selected to represent a variety of watersheds spanning multiple climatic and geographic settings as well as to illustrate.

Many of the rivers in this list have uncertain discharges. With the exception of those in Russia, streamgauges have seldom (if ever) been placed on the majority of the largest unfragmented river systems, due to the remoteness and/or ruggedness of the terrain in which they are located.

Unemployment, poverty, and inequality - among the highest in the world - remain a challenge. Official unemployment is roughly 27% of the workforce, and runs significantly higher among black youth. Even though the country's modern infrastructure supports a relatively efficient distribution of goods to major urban centers throughout the region.Streamflow is very important in estimating hydrology cycle [].In practice, hydraulic structures are installed in open channels or rivers with a free water level to estimate discharge based on the measured upstream water level [].The main critical factors in constructing hydraulic structures across an open channel throughout the world are need for the reliable source of water supply, Author: Adeniyi Adeogun, Abdul Rasak Apalando Mohammed./ A BRIEF REVIEW OF HYDRAULIC MODELLING (SEDIMENT DISPERSION, STAGE DISCHARGE, HYDRAULIC MODELS) OF BRAIDED GRAVEL-BED RIVERS IN NEW ZEALAND, Journal of Hydrology, New Zealand, Special Issue, Volume 35 # 2,pb, pages, - 3 .
