L. C. Dunn (1893-1974) spent most of his scientific career conducting research in
developmental genetics as a member of the Zoology Department at Columbia
University in the City of New York. He had an accomplished scientific career
researching mutations in mice, which earned him respect from other geneticists and
This study examines the interactions between the scientific communities of the
Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center
(SLAC) in the discovery of the tau lepton by physicist Martin Perl between 1973-
1977. Perl became interested in searching for heavy leptons through positron-electron
collision experiments using the...
The Lawrence Memorial Grassland Preserve, located in
Wasco County, Oregon, exhibits a wide variety of soil mounds and
patterned ground features. The size, shape, and distribution of
several elements of this peculiar landscape were analyzed with a
detailed map, field observations, and statistical procedures.
Common soil mound shapes are circular,...
Recent state and national standards have increased the interest in engineering at the K-12 level. Science standards, in particular, have begun to make the case for including engineering throughout the K-12 scope of study. Despite the increased attention to engineering, the characteristics and uniqueness of the field of engineering are...
Student engagement in a course plays a vital role in a student’s ability to process and construct knowledge. Student engagement research has investigated how students engage in and out of the classroom on a macro scale, through observation and survey data collection of large student populations, which lack focus on...
Controversy regarding moral development research has given rise to a proliferation of theories competing for acceptance. For all these researchers, the work of Lawrence Kohlberg is the pivot point for comparisons, contrasts, and discussions. Still, no theories to date adequately describe and document a theoretically complete conception of moral judgment...
The type section of the Mascall Formation, which is located in
the John Day Valley, is interpreted to represent a sequence of
paleosols. These fossil soils were formed on a floodplain during the
middle Miocene. The measured thickness of this section is 1340 feet,
and although the top of the...
The Cottage Grove Reservoir has been impacted by a point source (Black Butte
Mine), where mercury mining and processing has occurred within its watershed
from the 1890's to the late 1960's. Total mercury concentrations in surface
sediments transect samples, core samples, tributary samples, and representative
food web species were measured...
