Spatial, diel and seasonal variations in dissolved oxygen and
temperature were measured in Triangle Lake, Oregon. Spatial dissolved
oxygen and temperature variations measured in the stratified
lake are presented to illustrate the horizontal uniformity of the lake
and to demonstrate the applicability of the one dimensional assumption
for sampling and...
Phosphate, silicate and nitrate concentrations in the sea off
the coast of Oregon were determined to study their seasonal distribution
patterns. The water samples were collected monthly along the
east-west hydrographic line off Newport, Oregon, from the shore to
165 miles (310 km) offshore. The samples were analyzed by both...
There is evidence that recent ecological changes in lakes and their watersheds can be detected from analysis of lake sediments. This study was initiated to correlate
changes in some sediment characteristics of four Oregon lakes with past cultural developments of the lakes and their watersheds. The lakes chosen for this...
The red-band trout is native to many small, isolated streams in southeastern Oregon. A study of the red-band population of Three-
mile Creek and Reservoir was conducted from August 1973 to June 1975. Data were collected concerning population size, age composition,
growth, biomass, recruitment, fecundity, and habitat. During the spring...
Female participation in high-contact sports has increased
dramatically in the past two decades, raising concern regarding injury to
the female breast and the need for protective equipment. While the use of
chest/breast protectors by women is advocated, little is known of their
efficacy and effect on athletic performance. The purpose...
Over the last two decades, archaeologists have documented the widespread ancient Maya practice of collecting cave formations (speleothems) from ritually important caves and transporting them to their settlements. Little is known about their specific uses within settlements, but it is hypothesized that these objects convey a degree of sanctity from...
This study describes and quantifies some microprocesses of malaria
transmission including blood vessel location by Anopheles stephensi and
sporozoites delivery of An. stephensi infected by Plasmodium berghei. The
study models the effects of malaria parasite-induced changes in probing
behavior and mosquito mortality on disease transmisson. Finally, host, vector,
Rotary dryers are the most commonly used wood drying system in the particleboard industry. These dryers also play an increasingly important role in drying wood residues for fuel. Many potential benefits may be realized through an improved understanding of the rotary drying process. A rotary dryer simulation model was developed,...
Lorentz forces provide a unique method for the control and mixing of gas
flows without the physical intrusion of objects into the flow. Lorentz forces arise
when an electric current is passed through a volume in the presence of a magnetic
field. The interaction between the electric current and the...
