Update item information
Title Calculated Hydrographs for the Colorado River Downstream from Glen Canyon Dam during the Experimental Release, March 22-April 8, 1996
Creator Wiele, Stephen Mark
Subject Hydrology; Hydrographic surveying; Water levels
Spatial Coverage Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico); Colorado Plateau; Colorado; Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.)
Description As part of Glen Canyon Environmental Studies, an experimental flood release from Glen Canyon Dam of discharges up to 45,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) is planned for spring 1996. To aid in preparation for this release and to help researchers and boaters who will be working and traveling on the Colorado River during that time, this Fact Sheet presents estimates of the progression and evolution of the step waves that will result from the transitions between high and low flow.
