Saugerties: Water Supply May Be Inadequate for Additional Development This is an excerpt from the presentation made by Paul Rubin, a hydrologist hired by the PROTECT THE PLATTEKILL CREEK & WATERSHED group to help us evaluate the capacity of the Blue Mtn. Reservoir to supply drinking water in the present and in the future. It seems that we're running pretty close to capacity now and the Town anticipates further industrial development without having studied our ability to deliver clean water. How will we protect ourselves from shortages, lawsuits and property devaluation? This program will be screened in it's entirety on Public Access Channel 23, in Saugerties for the next few weeks.

Hydrologist Greenslade Finds Ford Model Lacking During the Arizona Department of Water Resources' Administrative Hearing, April 13 - 15, respected hydrologist William Greenslade testifies that the Ford model does not provide reliable or verifiable information.
Bushkill Creek | Tatamy, Pennsylvania | baseflow/stormflow This video depicts Bushkill Creek in Northampton County, Pennsylvania in June 2009 at two different times: one during a period of baseflow (23 June 2009) and another during a period of stormflow (18 June 2009). Video taken from the small Bushkill Street bridge crossing Bushkill Creek in Tatamy, Pennsylvania. The view is northward looking upstream from the bridge. The water cycling through Earth's environment falls from the sky as rain where it infiltrates into soil. Below the soil layer this water percolates into bedrock where it takes up residence in the bedrock's pore spaces becoming groundwater; part of this groundwater seeps from the contiguous body of groundwater to flow in streams. Thus streams flow, though it may not have rained for many days.In climates with plenty of rainfall--such as Pennsylvania's climate (Koeppen System Cfa to Dfa)--the year-round source of water flowing in perennial streams (excluding drought years) is groundwater. Hydrologists call this baseflow, that is, the normal or average level of water flowing in a given stream as a result of groundwater seepage. The 17th century French scientist Pierre Perrault was the first to demonstrate that water flowing in perennial streams was the result of water seeping from the water table out of the sides of a stream's channel. When storms occur, baseflow is augmented with additional water. Since its origin lies with individual rain events, hydrologists call this additional flow of water stormflow. In humid ...

Drinking Water related Hydrology In the past, the drinking water was so bad here on the Sunshine Coast BC Canada that groups of citizens formed to fight for better water. Since I am a science guy, I took on the study of hydrology, geotechnical engineering and epidemiology among other things. Other people studied the law, politics, economics, journalism and history of drinking water. The Ministry of Forests, with whom I disagree, counted over 200 landslides in the 64 square kilometers of the Chapman Creek valley. The one I have been studying is an average sized one. In the 1990s, the MoF spent four million dollars to fix the damage done to the watershed by past logging. This watershed restoration involved spraying grass seed and sticking willow sticks into the sliding soil. My research shows that their restoration efforts did not work. The MoF, on the other hand is proceeding to allow further logging in the watershed as if it is fully restored. I have much more documentation showing that the MoF and the Forest Industry does very poor quality science. s471

Rye City Hydrologist - not so independent after all After almost 3 years of rejecting the public appeals of resident Bob Schubert to investigate the loss of waterflow to his wetlands, City of Rye Mayor Steve Otis finally under pressure outlines the parameters of the City's hiring of an independent hydrologist to investigate the loss. Otis is well aware that Schubert blames the City for permitting a neighbor to do upstream drainage work that caused the water to stop flowing thus turning the Schubert pond into a stink hole. Thus here the Mayor goes to great pains to emphisize the independence of the professional to be hired - up to and until it becomes evident that the City's lawyer has been the source of the hire. Ultimately it will become clear that this particular hydrologist has not only worked in Westchester County before but has in fact worked for the City of Rye before. "Independent?" Clearly questionable.

Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii -1930's Eruption Remarkable silent film, 16mm Kodachrome movie film, YouTube of it's day. Probably the first color film ever made of a volcanic eruption. Mauna Loa's summit Mokuaweoweo Crater eruption filmed probably in 1933 by Harold T. Stearns, a USGS Hydrologist-Volcanologist. The lava fountains are hundreds of feet high, the erupting fissure inside the crater is about two thousand feet long. The crater floor is at an elevation of 13100' ASL. Stearns is flying in an open ***pit at an altitude of around 15000' ASL. Note patches of snow on the rim of the crater! At 1 min, 50 secs into the video, a plane will enter the lower right corner of the frame. View the entire 66 minute SILENT FILM compilation that was hand edited by Stearns himself, but you have to use Windows Media Player, on the file menu select "open URL" and past in: mms://video.wr.usgs.gov/movies/early_hawaiian_volcanoes.wmv This file contains all of this footage plus all of Stearn's other film covering about 15 years in Hawaii between the late 1920's and the early 1940's.

Gozo Farmers manipulated by MEPA and Church Speaking at a Press Conference in Nadur Gozo, Alternattiva Demokratika Chairperson Dr Harry Vassallo said that the issue of a permit for the development of a garigue area containing a perched aquifer overlooking Ramla l-Hamra has created an unnecessary embarrassment for the Diocese of Gozo. "After several recommendations to refuse on valid grounds were ignored, the permit has been issued, placing Church authorities on the spot." Dr Vassallo said "The Land in question belongs to the Joint Office and the applicant is a Gozitan parish." "The construction of this new cemetery will make Nadur top the list of villages endowed with outsize cemeteries in relation to their resident populations" Dr Vassallo said. "Not only will it accommodate far more burials than those required by Nadur residents, but it will also maintain and operate its present cemetery regardless of all excuses that the present cemetery could not be extended because of its proximity to residences" "An alternative site should be sought for several reasons. The concerns of farmers have not been put at rest with assurances that the graves will be hermetically sealed and waterproofed." Dr Vassallo said "Farmers' concerns would have been satisfied were it not for the refusal by Water Services Corporation (WSC) to approve an alternative site for the cemetery at Ta' Xhajma for fear of borehole contamination. If the WSC has cause for serious concern regarding water contamination, so do the farmers." "Despite efforts by ...
Yaadgaar(1970)Joh Yaadon mein Bas Jaatah Hain, puja keh wahi phool arpit hain! Kalibangān (Hindi: काली बंगा) is a town located at 29.47°N 74.13°E on the left or southern banks of the Ghaggar (Ghaggar-Hakra River), identified by some scholars with Saraswati River in Tehsil Pilibangān, between Suratgarh and Hanumāngarh in Hanumangarh district, Rajasthan, India 205 km. from Bikaner. The prehistoric and pre-Mauryan character of Indus Valley Civilization was first identified by Luigi Tessitori at this site. Kalibangan's excavation report was published in its entirety in 2003 by the Archaeological Survey of India, 34 years after the completion of excavations. The report concluded that Kalibangan was a major provincial capital of the Indus Valley Civilization. Kalibangan is distinguished by its unique fire altars and "world's earliest attested ploughed field" Fire altars At Kalibangan fire Vedi (altar)s have been discovered  , similar to those found at Lothal which SR Rao thinks could have served no other purpose than a ritualistic one . These altars suggest fire worship or worship of Agni, the Hindu god of fire. It is the only Indus Valley Civilization site where there is no evidence to suggest the worship of the "mother goddess". Within the fortified citadel complex, the southern half contained many (five or six) raised platforms of mud bricks, mutually separated by corridors. Stairs were attached to these platforms. Vandalisation of these platforms by brick robbers makes it difficult to reconstruct the original shape of ...
