This paper describes a method for measuring nearshore ocean wave characteristics with a land-based, long-period vertical seismometer. The wavemeter system has proven to be highly reliable and produces continuous wave observations at low cost. It is now operational at six Coast Guard stations along the Oregon and Washington coasts; data...
The second volume of a five-volume series is presented. The contents are arranged under the following chapter headings: (1) Fluid Mechanics of Liquid Metals, (2) Liquid-Metal Heat Transfer, (3) Intermediate Heat Exchangers, and (4) Steam Generators.
Stem form development of trees in response to wind has been established in the literature to be a response to stem sway induced by the wind. The response is manifested in modifications to height and diameter growth which strengthen the stem against wind stresses. Experiments in the literature show that...
Radiosonde data from the National Hail Research Experiment and the Wangara experiment are examined to study vertical gradients of moisture in heated boundary layers which are well-mixed in virtual potential temperature. The frequent occurrence of a significant decrease of moisture with height in the mixed layer over the high plains...
The influence of boundary layer pumping on an externally forced, synoptic-scale flow is examined. The results follow earlier theories of stratified incompressible Boussinesq flow theories in that the spin-down time scale and the penetration depth of the influence of boundary layer pumping are inversely proportional to the stratification and proportional...
As the demands for forest products increase, additional timber harvesting operations can be expected on steep mountainous terrain, The resulting disruption of natural slope stability by man's disturbances (roadbuilding, logging and vegetative manipulation, etc.) may also accelerate mass movement processes in this terrain. Swanston (1969) defines mass movement as ".,...
Commercial thinning young growth forests is an increasingly
important silvicultural technique for improving second growth
management of Douglas-fir stands. Research aimed at advancing the
efficiency of skyline logging operations in small wood timber stands
is essential in order to make thinning these young stands economical.
The purpose of this study...
The preparation of suitable sites for planting and growing of tree seedlings following logging is recognized by British Columbia Forest Service as a major silvicultural problem in the Central and Northern Interior regions of the province. Over the past few decades, scarification trials have been made with various types of...

This paper, then, serves as an operating manual and reference guide to the use of the glass distillation equipment and the...
Where there’s a law, there is probably someone trying to evade that law. In this document, ODFW personnel working with the Oregon Commission on Fish and Wildlife attempted to tweak crabbing regulations to prevent unfair exploitation of a limited resource. This document addresses the need to sort and discard undersized...
We give a nonstandard method of integrating the equation Bu" + Cu’ + Au = f in Hilbert space by reducing it to a first order system in which the differentiated term corresponds to energy. Semigroup theory gives existence for hyperbolic and for parabolic cases. When C = εA, ε...

Facility location studies involve the selection of a preferred
course of action from an array of multiattributed alternatives. The
factors affecting this selection are defined in both quantifiable and
qualifiable terms. The former comprises primarily monetary or operational
data, and the latter consists of nonmonetary and environmental
parameters; where the...
A procedural manual for sampling and analyzing sanitary landfill
leachate was designed to guide sanitarians and other public health
officials in monitoring mineral and organic material drainage from
landfill sources. The manual was constructed to allow flexibility of
conducting analytical tests in a field or laboratory environment.
Step-by-step procedures for...
The Late Spring Secondary Precipitation Maximum in the
Interior Pacific Northwest results from a complex system of climatic
controls. The Secondary Maximum is most strongly developed over the
high plateau of Oregon immediately in the lee of the Cascade
Mountains. Local topographic
organization exerts strong control
over the magnitude and...
An ancient delta complex is partly recorded by the upper seven
formations of the Cretaceous Nanaimo Group exposed on Mayne and
Samuel Islands of southwestern British Columbia. Features especially
suggestive of deltaic sedimentation here are: upward-coarsening
marine to fluvial sequences, cyclic repetition of facies, subaqueous
slumping, fluvial-marine interfingering, facies changes,...
The Duzel Rock area includes four square miles in the eastern
Paleozoic subprovince of the Klamath Mountains southeast of Fort

Persistent levels of high turbidity in the outflow from the
Prineville Reservoir led to development of relationships between
watershed soils, land use, and resource management and water
quality in the Upper Crooked River, Central Oregon.
Seven stations, strategically located for measurement of runoff
volume and water sample collection, were established...
The necessity for the evaluation of training methods on a between
methods basis is suggested. Current methods of training evaluations
are considered, and found to be generally deficient for their
lack of between technique comparisons. The necessity for an outline
of planned comparative analysis of training methods is indicated and...
Paleozoic limestones, dolomites, quartz arenites, and other
clastic rocks were mapped in the vicinity of Dobbin Summit and
Clear Creek in the central Monitor Range. Sedimentary rock units
present in this area represent the shallow-shelf eastern assemblage
and basin and also the basin-slope facies of the traditional limestoneclastic
In light of the current world-wide energy situation,
the utilization of the immense reserves of geothermal
energy is being actively pursued. The thermal energy contained
in a geothermal reservoir is mainly stored in rocks,
but is also held in liquid water and/or steam. The generation
of electrical power from these...
