Primula sect. Parryi comprises five species endemic to western North America: P. parryi, P. angustifolia, P. rusbyi, P. capillaris, and P. cusickiana with four varieties. This section, derived from a clade with representatives in Asia and Europe, exemplifies a phytogeographic pattern in which a widespread species is accompanied by multiple...
The effectiveness of the passive anti-roll tank system aboard
the R/V YAQUINA was determined. Measurements of ship roll,
effective waveslope and tank water transfer were analyzed using a
systems analysis technique. Time series of the inputs and outputs of
the ship/tank system and of the tank itself were processed using...
Present GEK (Geomagnetic Electrokinetograph) theory is extended
to include internal waves of the lowest mode. The predicted
towed electrode GEK signal is determined to second-order for long-crested
internal waves in a finite but deep ocean. The analysis includes
the determination of GEK signatures for small amplitude and
finite amplitude interfacial...
The distribution of particles in the Eastern Pacific Ocean was
investigated from 2 January to 14 February, l969, on the YALOC-69
cruise of Oregon State University. The size distributions were well
fitted by the two-parameter Weibull distribution function, with a
predominant number of them nearly exponential in distributional
The Columbia River plume region was investigated during the
period of 20 June to 3 July, 1968 by light scattering measurements
and standard hydrographic station observations. The Columbia
River plume was traced by the light scattering particles of the plume
water. The light scattering particles are estimated to be contained...
The art of software engineering inherently requires high-level problem solving and perseverance, as programmers and designers wrestle with complex design and implementation challenges in the process of turning loose concepts and ideas into working code. In the current developer ecosystem, engineers are commonly incentivized extrinsically by monetary rewards, approval or...
