An experimental investigation was conducted to determine
characteristics of natural convection of mercury in a vertical channel,
which was open at both ends. Two cases were investigated separately:
1) both walls uniformly and symmetrically heated, and 2) one wall
heated with the other insulated.

The free amino acid content of the intracellular pools in higher
marine fungi was determined by thin-layer and gas-liquid chromatography.
The organisms investigated include:
Ascomycetes; Nais inornata, Leptosphaeria oraemaris, Corollospora
maritima, Haligena elaterophora, Halosphaeria mediosetigera, Halosphaeria
appendiculata, Halosphaeria quadriremis, Lignincola Laervis
and Remispora hamata, and Fungi Imperfecti; Zalerion maritimum and...
Because of the fuel crisis and problems associated with thermal
pollution there is new impetus and urgency for developing more
efficient energy conversion systems for power generation. A preliminary
analysis was undertaken to determine the potential of staged
Rankine cycle systems for substantially higher efficiency. It was
necessary to optimize...
The role of detritivores in the conversion of allochthonous
leaf material in two small streams in the Cascade Range of Oregon
was studied. Their importance in relation to other consumers was
estimated from emergence and benthic standing crop data.
