Tenders are invited for Providing and laying pitching at down stream slope of earthen dam of Vartu-1 Irrigation Scheme
Because the stream sinuosity was similar to a reference reach, the existing stream slope and baseflow channel width were maintained.
Others took measurements of the stream slope and gradient and calculated the flow of the Ware River in cubic meters per second.
where, Q is the discharge and S is the stream slope.
1]) order subwatersheds were thus calculated from the measurements of their drainage area and average stream slope as:
The changes include stream slope, stream width, stream depth, bed material, riparian vegetation, and aquatic life.
At equilibrium, the carrying capacity of the stream defined as a combination of streamflow and stream slope must be balanced against sediment transport, defined as a combination of the sediment discharge and size.
Of initial interest was a region of relatively warm water on the edge of the Continental Shelf that the Fish Commission called the Gulf Stream Slope.
In 1881-82, Spencer Baird continued to use the Fish Hawk to dredge in waters as deep as 780 fathoms, primarily along the Gulf Stream Slope (Smith, 1888:915-932; Linton, 1915:741-744).
These benefits typically include improved instream habitat conditions (for example, through the restoration of self-scouring pools at channel bends), improved flood storage, and enhanced longitudinal stability with lower stream slope.
The streams which spawn salmon are found to have lower stream slopes.
Riprap will be placed for scour protection, and channel work shall be performed upstream and downstream to stabilize the channel and stream slopes as needed.
