VERTICAL DISTRIBUTION OF VELOCITY AND SUSPENDED SEDIMENT, MIDDLE RIO GRANDE, NEW MEXICO By CARL F. NORDIN, JR. and GEORGE R. DEMPSTER, JR. ABSTRACT Samples of suspended sediment and measurements of velocity at 3 to 5 points in a vertical are used to define vertical sediment concentration and velocity profiles for cross Cited by: Get this from a library.

BEVERAGE ABSTRACT This report describes hydraulic data, observed and computed sediment concentrations, and size distributions of bed-material samples for observations and presents the results of a seriesCited by: HYDRAULIC MODELING ANALYSIS OF THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE - ESCONDIDA REACH, NEW MEXICO throughout the Middle Rio Grande region in central New Mexico, including problems By contrast, the mean daily suspended sediment discharge remained nearly constant.

Difference mass curves showed aggradation and degradation thatAuthor: Amanda K. Larsen. MIDDLE RIO GRANDE, NEW MEXICO The dynamic characteristics of the Middle Rio Grande (MRG) in central New Mexico have been of both interest and concern for the regulatory agencies involved with its management.

The MRG has experienced sedimentation problems, prompting the development and implementation of sediment detention and flood control features.

The Rio Grande in the Big Bend region of Texas, USA, and Chihuahua and Coahuila, Mexico, undergoes rapid geomorphic changes as a result of its large sediment supply and variable hydrology; thus, it is a useful natural laboratory to investigate the relative importance of flow strength and sediment supply in controlling alluvial channel change.

Sediment yields were developed for the 2- 5- and year events, which were then used to compute average-annual sediment yields. Sediment Delivery Ratios (SDR) were determined on the basis of basin area, connectivity of the tributary to the Rio Grande and whether the lower reaches of the.

The Middle Rio Grande Basin covers about 7, km2 along the Rio Grande Rift in central New Mexico, USA (Figure 1). The basin consists of generally unconsolidated Cenozoic basin-fill sediment with a maximum thickness of about 4, m.

The average elevation is about 1, m, with surrounding mountains approaching 3, m. Sediment transport in alluvial channels, Part or all of this report is presented in Portable Document Format (PDF).

Introduction. The Gulf of Mexico is one of the most extensively studied bodies of water in the world. Numerous investigations have focused on almost every aspect of Gulf sedimentology from sediment transport and dispersal (Coleman et al., ; Davies and Moore, ) to mineralogy (Griffen, ), grain shape (Mazzullo, ), acoustical and geological characteristics of Cited by: DISTRIBUTION AND MOVEMENT OF SUSPENDED SEDIMENT IN THE GULF OF MEXICO OFF THE TEXAS COAST" Ralph E.

Hunter, U. Geological Survey, Corpus Christi, Texas ABSTRACT ERTS-1 imagery has proven very useful in studies of the distribution of suspended sediment in the Gulf of Mexico off the Texas coast.

This study examines metal concentrations in sediment cores from three sites along the RES, one of the nine rivers draining the Caribbean National Forest (CNF) in Rio Grande.

Rio Grande is a municipality on the northeast coast of Puerto Rico with one of the highest population densities in Puerto Rico ( persons/km 2; U.S.

This reach of the Rio Grande, upstream of Elephant Butte Reservoir, is highly dynamic and behaves with a great deal of complexity. The geomorphic drivers of water discharge and sediment load, coupled with the primary control of downstream base level (reservoir pool) elevation, have varied significantly from the early ’s to the present.

The Rio Puerco (fig. 2) carries exceptionally high sediment loads, and is the major source of suspended sediment entering the Rio Grande; on average, the Rio Puerco delivers 78% of the total suspended sediment load of the Rio Grande although it drains only 26% of the Rio Grande Basin and provides only 4% of the runoff.

Distributions of woody vegetation on floodplain surfaces affect flood-flow erosion and deposition processes. A large flood along the lower Rio Puerco, New Mexico, in August caused extensive erosion in a reach that had been sprayed with herbicide in September for the purpose of saltcedar (Tamarix spp.) volumes of sediment, including a substantial Cited by: An intriguing event in the history of the Rio Grande rift, occurring in the latest Miocene or earliest Pliocene, was a remarkable downstream elongation of the Rio Grande from the Albuquerque Basin southward to southern New Mexico, where it alternately avulsed into several playa-lake systems (Mack et al., and ; Connell et al., ).File Size: 8MB.

A modeling approach using daily water and sediment discharges simulates the transient evolution of bed elevation changes. The analytical and numerical models are in very good agreement with the longitudinal profile measurements of the Bosque del Apache reach of the Rio Grande, NM, from to.

[Summarized by Author] The Middle Rio Grande Valley in central New Mexico has changed dramatically in the past 70 years.

Population has increased, agriculture has declined in importance, and much of the land near the river has been developed.A two-dimensional, digital, cross-sectional model was used to simulate seepage of water from an alluvial channel, which had the general characteristic of the Rio Grande channel, into the underlying alluvium within the reach from Cochiti Dam to Elephant Butte Reservoir.

Seepage rates were determined for losing and gaining reaches, and reaches affected by pumping of ground .A map of the sediment thickness (isopach) and occurrence of hydrocarbons is an initial step in identifying the petroleum system(s) of a basin.

Figure 1 shows the total Jurassic to Recent sediment thickness and hydrocarbon occurrences in the GOM basin. The hydrocarbon occurrences are concentrated in reservoir rocks that range in age from Jurassic to Pleistocene Link: Web page.
