This thesis reports on an investigation of flow patterns in
shallow geothermal wells in Klamath Falls, Oregon, Although
wells have been extensively used in the area, the exact nature of
the flows in the wells has not been characterized.
Flow characterization is a principal object of this study.
An investigation has been made of several physical parameters of the effluent plume of the Columbia River as it enters the Pacific
Ocean. Radioactive material in trace amounts enters the Columbia River from the Hanford nuclear reactors at Richland, Washington. One of these nuclides, chromium -51, has been used to...
Despite the considerable advances of deposition technologies, it remains a significant challenge to form conformal deposition on surface of nanoporous carbons. Here, we introduce a new ambient hydrolysis deposition method that employs and controls pre-adsorbed water vapor on nanoporous carbons to define the deposition of TiO₂. We converted the deposited...
We, for the first time, demonstrate that orthorhombic V₂O₅ can exhibit superior electrochemical performance in sodium ion batteries when uniformly coated inside nanoporous carbon. The encapsulated V₂O₅ shows a specific capacity as high as 276 mAh/g, while the whole nanocomposite exhibits a capacity of 170 mAh/g. The V₂O₅/C composite was...

The central purposes of this study were to review the
historical sources of David Kolb's formulation of experiential
learning theory, and to determine the effect and
application of Kolb's theory and Learning Style Inventory
as reflected in the literature between 1971 and 1990.
It was found that Kolb based his...
It was observed that certain myoelectric surface
potentials are of a pulse nature. The pulses have nearly
the same exact waveshape, but are asynchronously
Physiological evidence indicated that myoelectric
pulses are concurrent with the activity of a small unit
of organized muscle fibres (motor unit). The electrical
