A parallel algorithm is described for variational assimilation of observations into oceanic and atmospheric models. The algorithm may be coded first for execution on a serial computer and then trivially modified for execution on a parallel computer such as the Intel iPSC/860. The speedup factor for parallel execution is roughly...
My thesis explores the later work of author J.D. Salinger, including two narratives featured in Nine Stories, "A Perfect Day for Bananafish," and "Teddy," and Franny and Zooey, "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters," and "Seymour: an Introduction." Through my analysis I argue that the religious nature of Salinger's fiction...

During the North Pacific cruise of the R/V Yaquina in 1966,
total magnetic field intensity was measured in the Andreanof group
of the Aleutian Islands. Three north-south track lines were made
across the Aleutian Trench and ridge between longitudes 175° W
Three small scale magnetic profiles across the...
A method to measure consumers' housing consumption and
investment attitudes according to various dimensions was initiated.
In addition, construct validity of the measurement instrument was
initiated through use of personal variables.
Two scales were developed to measure homeownership consumption
and investment attitudes. The dimensions of homeownership consumption
and investment found...
A method for predicting the harvest of commercial Dungeness
crab (Cancer magister) one year in advance of the fishing season is
described. The technique is based on the hypothesis that the relative
abundance of sub-legal crabs one year is directly proportional to the
harvest of legal crabs the following year....
