Visualization in Hydrology using Google Earth

submitted by: broxtopd
This submission is designed to illustrate the effectiveness of using Google Earth visualizations to convey hydrologic information. The presentation is divided into several parts. After an introduction, there is a section describing the usefulness of using Google Earth to display spatial data, a section highlighting the overlay of static map coverages in Google Earth such as USGS topographic overlays and maps representing various topographic characteristics, and a section pertaining to my...

Characterizing an Artificial-Recharge Site in a Desert Environment Using Time-Domain Electromagnetics - Matt Burgess; M.S. Candidate, Advisors Dr. George Jiracek, Dr. Paul Bedrosian (USGS): Time-domain electromagnetics (TEM) were applied to characterize the subsurface in the vicinity of a proposed artificial hydraulic recharge site. Because of the investment involved, it is important to know the possible barrier effect of a major fault situated near the proposed recharge site. In this...

Southern Coyote Creek Fault to Superstition Hills Fault: New Insight to the San Jacinto Fault System - Afton Van Zandt; M.S. Candidate, Advisors Dr.Rob Mellors , Dr. Thomas K. Rockwell, and Dr. Douglas A. Stow: The Superstition Hills fault (SHF) is an active fault in the San Jacinto fault zone that also creeps aseismically. 58 interferograms from ERS-1 and ERS-2 satellite data (descending, track 356, frame 2943) spanning a time period from 1992 to 2000 were analyzed to measure surface...

Study of crustal structure in the Caucasus and Caspian regions using receiver functions - Rumi Takedatsu; B.S. Candidate- Advisor Dr.Rob Mellors: The Eurasia-Arabia collision has created complex tectonics and structure in the Caucasus and Caspian region. In particular, Caspian Basin has a very different lithospheric structure from the surrounding region and the origin of the basin and nearby structures, such as the Kura Depression, are not well understood. This study will map the main...

Potential Controls Affecting Gastropod Biomass in the the High Intertidal Zones at Neighboring Locations - Tiffany Schillereff; B.S. Candidate, Advisor Dr.Stephen Schellenberg: San Diego California’s coastlines include rocky intertidal zones that contain an abundance of the Class Gastropoda. What are the potential controls on gastropod abundance and size? Do wave energy, anthropogenic impact, substrate lithology and predation play a role? The locations in this study were Bathtub Rock...

Crustal Structure of the Caucasus/Caspian region using gravity and receiver functions - Jason Ricketts; B.S. Candidate, Advisor Dr.Rob Mellors: The area west of the South Caspian basin is an area of complex and uncertain tectonic structure. Thick sediments within the Kura Depression mask the basement and its subsurface geology is poorly constrained. Forward modeling of receiver functions provides initial constrains. However, a good match is sometimes difficult due to the thick sediments....
