Proceedings of the workshop, the environmental implications of cargo sweeping in the Great Lakes by David Fulton Reid( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Cargo sweeping" is the practice of removing the residues of dry bulk cargoes, such as iron ore, coal, grain, and various rock materials, from the deck and holds of cargo vessels. Such residues occur after most loading or unloading operations. Cleanup is accomplished by washing the decks and cargo spaces with water, which is then discharged over the side, usually while underway. Coast Guard regulations proposed in 1989 would have made the discharge of cargo residues illegal on the Great Lakes, which would have disrupted the continued operations of the U.S. Great Lakes shipping industry. In September 1994 a workshop was held to identify the research needed to provide a scientific basis for regulatory decisions. Three separate work groups, Risk to Fisheries & Habitat, Sediment Accumulation & Toxicity, and Water Column Impacts, were convened. Each group was asked to consider and identify what we already know and what gaps there are in our knowledge and understanding related to cargo sweeping, what further information or studies are needed, and how best to obtain the requisite information. [1.] All three groups identified the need for comprehensive information on the composition of the commodities, especially relative to impurities and added chemicals that might prove environmentally harmful. Such information should be obtained by literature searches and direct analyses of the composition. [2.] Each group indicated the need for studies to determine the bioavailability and bioaccumulation of cargo components and impurities that may be toxic. [3.] Each group identified a series of other information gaps and questions in need of answers, and recommended various approaches to obtain needed information."--Executive summary, Overview, p. 4

Lumped modeling of Laurentian Great Lakes evaporation, heat storage, and energy fluxes for forecasting and simulation by Thomas E Croley( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lake evaporation for the Laurentian Great Lakes is of the same order of magnitude as precipitation and runoff to the lakes and its estimation is important for simulations and forecasts of lake levels. Water or energy balance estimates of Great Lakes evaporation require storage-change data, not available in simulations or forecasts, and errors in the components of the balances are summed in the residual, giving large estimation errors for evaporation. Evaporation models, which use the aerodynamic equation with mass transfer coefficients developed originally in the Lake Hefner studies, were further developed for Lake Ontario during the International Field Year for the Great Lakes and adapted for other Great Lakes. Neither these models nor the balance models can be verified since independent estimates of evaporation are not available with sufficient accuracy. However, surface temperatures are available and can be used as verification data. The mass transfer coefficient research (where water surface temperatures must be known) is combined here with lumped model concepts of classical energy conservation and superposition heat storage to provide continuous simulation capability of both water surface temperatures and lake evaporation for use in outlooks and forecasts of lake levels. A new function is presented that uses a simple relation between surface temperature and heat stored in a lake based on current understandings of the thermal structure of large lakes. Calibration of the resulting model matches the water surface temperatures for those Great Lakes and small Lake St. Clair with satellite observations of water surface temperatures over the past 20 years. Evaporation and heat budgets over the annual cycle are presented for four of the Great Lakes and Lake St. Clair, and comparisons with long-term water balances are made
