  • Dam breach modelling: influence on downstream water levels and a proposal of a physically based module for flood propagation software

    The influence exerted by the method used for computing the dam breach hydrograph on the simulated maximum water levels throughout the downstream valley is essential for selecting a specific computing module to be implemented in the numerical codes used by practitioners. This module should be able to balance the need for a reasonable physical description of the phenomenon and, at the same time, ...

  • Effects of androstenedione exposure on fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) reproduction and embryonic development

    High concentrations (300 ng/L) of androstenedione (A4) were identified in snowmelt runoff from fields fertilized with manure from livestock feeding operations in Wisconsin. In fishes, A4 is an active androgen and substrate for biosynthesis of functional androgens (e.g., testosterone and 11‐ketotestosterone) and estrogens (e.g., estradiol‐1713). Thus, A4 has the potential to be a powerful ...
