A chemostatic system was developed for the long term studies
of population dynamics of chain forming diatoms. Vessel volume
rather than flow rate was varied in these systems to obtain different
growth rates at steady state in systems with an equal capacity to
Population level responses to high dilution...
Measuring coastal and oceanic absorption coefficients of dissolved and particulate matter in the visible domain usually requires a methodology for amplifying the natural signal because conventional spectrophotometers lack the necessary sensitivity. The WET Labs ac-9 is a recently developed in situ absorption and attenuation meter with a precision better than...
The temperature and salt dependencies of absorption by liquid water (H₂O) and heavy water (D₂O) were
determined using a hyperspectral absorption and attenuation meter (WET Labs, AC-S). Sodium chloride
(NaCl) was used as a proxy for seawater salts. There was no significant temperature (ψₜ) or salt (ψₛ)
dependency of absorption...
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
The pre-Tertiary oceanic crust exposed on the west coast of Costa Pica has been broadly referred to as the Nicoya Complex. This study was designed to determine the age of the Nicoya Complex in the Nicoya Peninsula, Playa Jaco, and the Quepos Peninsula using Ar-40-Ar-39 radiometric dating and to assess...
