Aquatic animals are exposed to a variety of natural and
anthropogenic xenobiotics. Biotransformation of xenobiotics was
examined in three aquatic animals: a primitive mollusc (chiton);
a shellfish which is an important human food source (oyster);
and, a lower vertebrate model for toxicological studies (rainbow
trout). Since digestive glands of Cryntochiton...
In order to estimate wind turbine residL2;characteristics
in the presence of atmospheric turbulence, the important atmospheric
sources for the force excitations felt by the wind turbine system
must be identified and characterized. The goal of this research
is to develop the wind turbulence input model for horizontal axis
A five year longitudinal study was begun in 1976 to find a
solution to the problem of early primary children who fail in school
and then adopt the failure syndrome. The study was conducted in four
elementary schools in Oregon which had distinctly different
The tests used for...
Biogeochemical data from four small watersheds in the Silver Creek study area, southwestern Idaho, provide the basis for: 1. An estimate of chemical and erosional denudation rates (CD and ED), 2. an estimate of plagioclase weathering rate, 3. a rational basis for estimating the rate of nutrient supply to soil...
A theory is developed to provide an analytical solution to an
unsteady flow field which is partially occupied by a porous structure.
The flow is induced by a small amplitude incident wave
train. The porous structure may contain multi-layer anisotropic but
homogeneous media. Three typical porous structures are investigated:
