UNSW Water Research Laboratory Report No. 162

An improvement to the probabilistic discrete state modelling of reservoir behaviour. March 1975.

D. G. Doran
Develops a method for dealing with the computation of stochastic reservoir behaviour which is to be called the "divided interval technique", which offers better accuracy. An outline of storage behaviour analysis techniques followed by a literature review on storage theory precedes an account of probabilistic reservoir models. Many methods suffer from inaccuracies because of dicretetization. This study develops a technique to overcome this problem, and its efficacy is exemplified. This improved method is used to...

Wastewater discharge at casey Station, Antarctica. December 1999.

B. Cathers, C. E. Morris & P. M. Tate
Over the summer period December 1997/January 1998, a program of field work was undertaken as part of a research project to develop numerical models of the wastewater discharge systems entering the marine waters off Casey Station in Antarctica. Samples were evaluated for ammonia, total phosphorus, and four categories of bacteria of the study period , and levels compared with the wastewater treatment plant influent and effluent, and marine background levels. Elevated levels of all parameters...

Mitigation of siltation in farm water storages. May 1969.

R. T. Hattersley & R. C. Nelson
Present practices for the prevention of siltation in rural storages are reviewed in this report and compared with overseas practices. An anlysis of the effectivesness of conventional silt tanks is provided based on the approximate theories for settling of granular solids in sedimentation basins. A limited gtoup of case studies was made in an endeavour to highlight significant factors for the control and prevention of siltation in rural storages as topics for further research.

Gove Northern Territory harbour feasibilty studies. March 1968.

P. B. Stone, D. N. Foster & R. C. Nelson
Investigations to provide design data for shipping operations on the gulf of Carpentaria at Gove.Waves due to trade winds and tropical cyclones were forecast for two possible harbour locations. The likely characteristics of seiche at one site was found unlikely to affect shipping. Current and sand movements were studied. Model studies investigated breakwater overtopping and harbour protection.

Monthly streamflow extension with multiple regression techniques. January 1976.

G. L. Wright
Presents a procedure for estimating monthly streamflow data for a given gauging station by multiple regression analysis by using surrounding stations with longer records. This need arises when a when a gauging network has stations established or discontinued at different times, or when there are gaps in records.

A Program Suite for the Statistical Analysis and Comparison of Historical and Synthetic Hydrologic Records. July 1978.

M. A. Lindner
Synthetically generated records of streamflow, rainfall, and evaporation may be used in river valley simulation models as an aid to decision making. Before use, the records need to be validated by a comparison of their statistical properties with those of the historical records. A program is developed to assist in this comparison. A problem chosen as an example is described , and selective output is given to illustrate applications.

Berowra Creek: a hydrodynamic investigation. June 1998.

D. A. Luketina, D. C. van Senden & D. Piper
This report outlines the methodology for the analysis and interpretation of the results of a field investigation carried out in 1995 into the hydrodynamics of Berowra Creek, New South Wales. This investigation is centred around a three month set of data collected from May to August 1995. The data analysis is used to elucidate dominant physical processes so that models can be developed to predict flushing rates within the estuary.

Finite element solution of two-regime flow towards wells. December 1973.

P. S. Huyakorn
The report has two parts. The first deals with the general theory, variation principles, and finite element methods for confined and unconfined flow problems. Numerical solutions for several transient and steady flow cases in graphical form. The second discusses verification of the analysis by laboratory and field investigations. Type curve methods developed for determining aquifer hydraulic coefficients are presented. Typical pumping test results are compared with the numerical solutions.

Monkey Mia: a hydrodynamic investigation. June 1998.

D. A. Luketina, I. P. King & L. M. Lyons
This report outlines the methodology and results of a RMA10 hydrodynamic model investigation funded by the Department of Conservation and Land management (W.A.) into the hydrodynamics of Monkey Mia lagoon and Shark Bay. More specifically, the model results show the dilution of a variety of neutrally buoyant pollutant releases in Monkey Mia Lagoon (Red Cliff Bay). In addition, the key processes governing the dilution are elucidated.

Evaluation and imptovement of quality characteristics of urban stormwater. October 1976.

Ian Cordery
Stormwater from three Sydney urban catchments show that in separately sewered areas has a greater concentration and carries a greater total load of pollutants than effluent from secondary sewage treatment plants. Pollution and nutrient indicators are highly concentrated in the first flush of a storm, but fall rapidly to low levels. An important exception is that phosphate concentration remains approximately constant. When the discharge increases sharply, the suspended solids and phosphates increase slightly. Faecal coliform...

Flood forecasting for the City of Launceston. August 1960.

D. N. Foster
Based on rainfall records at seven index stations to predict peak discharge and time of peak. The warning period for overtopping levees is approximately fifteen hours and the accuracy of the estimate plus or minus 15 %.

A generalised model for flood loss estimation. September 1970.

D. K. Robinson
A generalised model to predict the the estimated annual economic loss in the river valley, and expected annual deviations. The effects of the detention reservoir, land use changes and flood mitigation measures are evaluated. The model may be modified easily to yield a loss estimate for any storm or flood of specified characteristics.

Application of GIS for modelling of the spatial distribution of rainfall. October l996.

K. C. Luk & J. E. Ball
A generic procedure developed in a geographical information system for estimating spatial distribution of rainfall in an urban catchment. Five different techniques were used to estimate point values at ungauged sites as well as average values for subcatchments. Thiessen Polygon, Inverse Distance Weighted, Kriging, Trend and Spline. Basic principles of the techniques outlined. Both visual and arithmetic comparisons were established. It ws found that using spline surfaces within a GIS produced robust and accurate estimates...
