Among the questions that ecosystem-based management raises for economists is how to partition uses of the many biological, chemical and physical attributes of marine ecosystems into sets of property rights that undergird total ocean wealth. An elemental basis of property rights for fisheries involves the interplay between ecological and technological...
Several uranium anomalies, with concentrations of U₃0₈ that
average below 0.003 percent and reach maximums of 0.069 percent,
are associated with black, fossiliferous, pyritic parts of the Ordovician
Ledbetter Slate in northern Stevens County, Washington. The most
uraniferous parts of the slate occur in small (average of 5 by 30...
The loss of all deuterium labels from previous feedings of [2-²H]-,
[3,3-²H₂]-, and [2,3,3-²H₃]arginines had indicated the possible intermediacy
of β-hydroxy- and β-ketoarginine (30 and 31, respectively) in the
biosynthesis of the streptolidine portion of streptothricin F (la).
In order to confirm or refute this evidence, D,L-[2,3,3,5,5-²H₅]-
arginine (32) was...
The wind and thermodynamic fields associated with eastern
Atlantic cloud clusters are studied using radiosonde data from
the Global Atmospheric Research Program Atlantic Tropical Experiment
(GATE). These data are from the gridded set of winds prepared
by Dr. Katsuyuki Ooyama (AOML-NOAA) and Dr. Jan-Hwa Chu
(SSEC, University of Wisconsin, Madison)...
In this work we will analyze branching Brownian motion on a finite interval with oneabsorbing and one reflecting boundary, having constant drift rate toward the absorbingboundary. Similar processes have been considered by Kesten (), and more recently byHarris, Hesse, and Kyprianou (). The current offering is motivated largely by the...
A mechanism for filiform corrosion of aluminum is proposed
based on experimental evidence and the known aqueous chemistry of
the trivalent aluminum ion. Experimental methods utilized include
autoradiographs with Cl³⁶; pH paper determination of the filiform
head pH; activator concentration and activation period as they affect
A publication containing advice on a wide range of gardening topics, including composting, container gardens, fall/winter gardens, fertilizing, insect pests, plant diseases, planting guidelines, raised beds, site selection, slugs, soil improvement, tilling, warm-season crops, watering, and weeds. Includes regional tips for various parts of Oregon.
The purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy of eight
anthropometric regression equations with hydrostatic weighing for
predicting the percent body fat of adult males with Down Syndrome
(DS). Body fat percentages were predicted for 18 adult males with DS.
Skinfold, circumference, and bioelectric impedance analysis data were...
