On August 6, 1945 the United States of America dropped an atomic bomb
on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later another atomic bomb was
dropped on the city of Nagasaki, Japan. The events that led up to the United
States' decision to drop the atomic bombs on Japanese...
The goals of this research were to a) characterize the protein-function
relationships of skeletal muscle single fibers from the mouse hindlimb b) examine
mouse-strain related differences in myosin heavy chain composition (MHC) and
single fiber contractile function, and c) quantify changes in fiber size and
contractile function in response to...
Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas), Alaska pink salmon (Oncorynchus
gorbuscha) roe and chum salmon (Oncorynchus keta) fillets were treated with
aqueous ozone in both pilot plant and commercial settings to determine its effect on
shelf-life and microbial changes. The microbial quality was analyzed by conducting
pyschrotrophic and coliform plate counts on...
A documented case history of riparian grazing at Oregon State University's
Soap Creek Ranch was conducted from 1999 to 2001. Impacts of four different
riparian grazing treatments were evaluated. Emphasis was placed on investigating
the relationship between riparian cattle use and water quality.
Through a series of carefully designed and...
The internal structure of natural fiber composites can be manipulated by controlling the spatial distribution of fiber orientation and internal chemical and thermodynamic conditions during their consolidation. Objects highly tailored to specific service demands may thereby be produced. Techniques to form miniature structural beams from oriented hemp and random wood...
