We have measured ³He/⁴He ratios and He and Ne concentrations on a suite of 24 basalt glasses from the neovolcanic zone of the Juan de Fuca Ridge (JdFR) from 44.6°N near the Blanco Transform up to 48.0°N on the Endeavour Segment. The helium isotope ratios exhibit a clear geographic variation,...
Experimental data on the structural phase changes in zirconia are summarized. The computational
techniques of molecular dynamics are reviewed and equations of motion are formulated
which allow the study of phase changes as a function of temperature and pressure.
The molecular dynamics program NPT which was written for this purpose...
Remote sensing of variables necessary to estimate net primary
production of vegetation over large temporal and spatial scales has been a
goal of climate change research. This thesis consists of two studies that
address the reliability of satellite and airborne sensors to quantify a basic
component of all production models,...
