This study compared three approaches to the improvement of
vocabulary in ninth grade language arts classes: the direct-teaching
approach, the interest-in-words approach, and the wide-reading
approach. Answers to the following questions were sought: which of
these approaches to vocabulary improvement is more effective than
each other approach used in this...
Miniature satellites called cubesats have been gaining increasing popularity in
both academic and private spaceflight ventures. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
has recently been accepting design proposals for a cubesat mission to Europa, where
solar and battery power would be inadequate power sources. In this thesis, a
radioisotope powered cubesat was...
Trawl cables are wire ropes which corrode under the influence of
seawater depending on fishing habits.
Information about the problem was obtained from the preceeding
work by Robert D. Malloch, and from contacts with the fishermen.
Statistical data about fishing boats and fishing habits on the Pacific
Northwest Coast are...
Ocean health is a major concern for coastal communities dependent on the ocean for their livelihood. Recent changes in in ocean health force researchers to examine the factors that influence the decline in ocean health. The paper developed production functions using the Global Ocean Health Index (OHI) for 2014 and...
To address patterns of genetic connectivity in a mass-aggregating marine fish, we analyzed genetic variation in
mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), microsatellites, and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for Nassau grouper (Epinephelus
striatus). We expected Nassau grouper to exhibit genetic differentiation among its subpopulations due to its reproductive
behavior and retentive oceanographic conditions...

Nassau grouper Epinephelus striatus are a large bodied, top level predator that is ecologically important throughout
the Caribbean. Although typically solitary, Nassau grouper form large annual spawning aggregations at predictable times in specific
locations. In 2003, The Cayman Islands Marine Conservation Board established protection for a newly rediscovered Nassau
The results of light scattering measurements made with a Brice-Phoenix photometer and particle size distribution measurements made with a Model A Coulter Counter are presented. The data were collected on five cruises off the Oregon coast during the period June - October 1972. The cruises were a part of the...
Nitrogen is a crucial nutrient required by yeast to successfully complete alcoholic fermentation. In particular, the concentration of yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN) influences fermentation kinetics and the production of a range of volatile aroma compounds, both desirable and undesirable. YAN is naturally present in the grape, but producers can boost...
