The Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences, Inc. (CUAHSI) began the Hydrologic Measurement Facility (HMF) program in June 2005 to advance hydrologic measurement capability within the research community. To provide guidance for this effort, a recent survey assessed the level of need among the hydrological sciences community...
Current anthropogenic pressures drive the widespread loss of apex consumers where the effects of their removal from a system may cascade through lower trophic levels, with unanticipated impacts (Estes et al. 2011; Ripple et al. 2014). Similarly, the observed global decline in large herbivores has complex outcomes for ecosystem functioning...
Understanding the frequency, magnitude, and nature of explosive volcanic eruptions is essential for hazard planning and risk mitigation. Terrestrial stratigraphic tephra records can be patchy and incomplete due to subsequent erosion and burial processes. In contrast, the marine sedimentary record commonly preserves a more complete historical record of volcanic activity...
The federally threatened northern spotted owl (Strix occidentalis caurina) is the focus of intensive
conservation efforts that have led to much forested land being reserved as habitat for the owl and associated wildlife
species throughout the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Recently, however, a relatively new threat to spotted...
Few studies have examined the acute effects of
resistive-type exercise on lipid-lipoprotein profiles. This
study examined the acute effects of a single session of
circuit weight training (CWT) on plasma lipid-lipoprotein
profiles: triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), high
density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low density
lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and the ratio...
Infiltration, soil erosion, nitrogen loss and soil profile
characteristics were measured on 36 sites representing land occupied
by Artemisia tridentata ssp. tridentate, wyomingensis, and vaseyana.
Infiltration, soil erosion, and nitrogen loss were strongly correlated
but highly variable. Soil loss, but not infiltration or nitrogen
loss was significantly different between subspecies....
The study was devoted to formulating answers to the following
1. What factors did students report to be influential in their
choice of a community college major ?
2. What factors influenced students in the selection of a
community college to attend?
3. What factors influenced students to continue...
