The decay of ⁶¹Cu and ⁵⁹Cu produced by (d, n) reactions on
natural nickel has been investigated. Gamma-ray energies and relative
intensities were measured with a high resolution Ge(Li) spectrometer.
The gamma-gamma coincidence spectrum of ⁶¹Cu was
studied with a Ge(Li)-NaI(T1) system. From these data decay
schemes of ⁶¹Cu and...
Although studies have shown that some marine invertebrates
can obtain a portion of their nutrition from dissolved and nonliving
particulate organic matter, the relative importance of such foods in
their diet has not been established. The success of oyster hatcheries
could be significantly improved if the diet of living algal...
The lack of availability of a single, complete paper on the
analysis of a digital data acquisition system for in situ oceanographic
measurements brought about the present work. In order to compile
an accurate technical paper on such a complex system, it was necessary
to design, construct, and calibrate a...
A strain of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae Born. et Flah. has been
introduced into culture and maintained since August of 1964 in completely
defined media. It exhibits the planktonic, colonial flake form
found in nature, and both heterocysts and akinetes are present. The
color and size of the flake and general appearance...
Investigations with ram semen were conducted to develop procedures
of cyrogenic preservation that would provide long-term
retention of fertilizing capacity in ram spermatozoa.
An isotonic extender consisting of egg yolk, sodium citrate,
lactose, glycerol, and a broad spectrum antibiotic was selected from
among several extenders tested in pilot studies. Using...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship
between poverty and mental retardation and to place mental retardation
in its true perspective as a social condition which thrives especially
in poverty areas. More specifically, this study attempted
to determine if there was any significant relationship between selected
The wetlands are distinguished from other lands of the Mid-Willamette Valley by excessive soil moisture. The wetlands, as defined for this study, consist of 20 soil series (in 22 soil mapping units) which are classified by the Soil Conservation Service as having excessive wetness as the major factor limiting their...
