This capstone project is presented for the completion of Oregon State University’s (OSU) Master of Natural Resources Program. Water resource reliability in the Pacific Northwest is becoming less dependable, but population and municipal water demand is increasing. The Gales Creek Watershed and its tributary Clear Creek encompass 48,481 acres in...
The ChemCam campaign at the fluvial sedimentary outcrop ‘‘Shaler’’ resulted in observations of 28
non-soil targets, 26 of which included active laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), and all of
which included Remote Micro-Imager (RMI) images. The Shaler outcrop can be divided into seven facies
based on grain size, texture, color,...
Leadership, organizational structure, and communication/interpersonal relations are
key functions studied. Evaluation of the Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem
Management Project (Project) considers how well those factors were managed by
Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management in a bioregional assessment during
a period from November, 1994 to November, 1995.
In order to properly utilize organic amendments as nitrogen sources, reliable methods
to estimate plant-available nitrogen (PAN) are needed. The objectives of this study
were to (1) evaluate the use of crop and soil responses in fertilizer N equivalence
(FNE) calculations, (2) examine the relationships between the C/N ratio, total...
There is significant interest in the fabrication of nano- and micro-structured silica with spatially ordered features, which exhibit enhanced optoelectronic properties with application to the next generation of display devices, semiconductors, and sensors. Currents methods of fabrication employ top down processes which use extremes of temperature, pressure, and power. There...
The equations of motion of an elastic cable suspended in a
viscous medium from two arbitrary points are derived. These are
then linearized for the undamped, inextensible case, and it is found
that the equations describing the in-plane motion of the cable are
then independent of the equation describing the...
Preliminary studies with a dog (Canis familiaris) and a coyote
(Canis latrans) showed that these carnivores can serve as definitive
hosts in the life cycle of Sarcocystis fusiformis of cattle (Bos
taurus) and a microscopic Sarcocystis of mule deer (Odocoileus
hemionus hemionus). Preliminary studies to determine effects of the
