We, for the first time, demonstrate that orthorhombic V₂O₅ can exhibit superior electrochemical performance in sodium ion batteries when uniformly coated inside nanoporous carbon. The encapsulated V₂O₅ shows a specific capacity as high as 276 mAh/g, while the whole nanocomposite exhibits a capacity of 170 mAh/g. The V₂O₅/C composite was...

This dissertation considers two approaches for testing hypotheses in
unbalanced mixed linear models. The first approach is to construct a design with
some type of structure or "partial" balance, so that some of the optimal properties of
a completely balanced design hold. It is shown that for a particular type...
Data from the southern Cascade Mountains of
Oregon has been collected for application in computer
analysis of snowfields. Vegetation type, canopy
cover, slope, aspect, insolation, and snowfield
ground truth delineation are given consideration.
In addition, a procedure for transferral of data
onto Landsat imagery was derived.

Throughout the Holocene, appreciable changes in bathymetry are hypothesized to have resulted in large changes to tidal datums in coastal and estuarine areas. An understanding of tidal change is an important contribution to the knowledge of relative historical sea-level change and future coastal planning. To test this hypothesis, the Advanced...
Over 10,000 feet of marine and nonmarine Late Cretaceous sedimentary rocks are exposed within a 110 square mile area in northeastern Teton County, Wyoming. An additional 1400 feet of nonmarine Paleocene and Miocene rocks overlie these. Landslide deposits and Pleistocene glacial moraine cover over one-half of the area. The Late...
Estuaries represent the confluence of land and ocean environments and encompass a number of complex interactions amongst tides, winds, offshore waves and the riverine contributions, all of which contribute to total water levels (TWLs). The study of TWLs and the relative weight of its components can assist local communities in...
The glaciated coastal mountain watersheds that drain into the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) provide a model laboratory to explore the challenges of hydrological modeling and study the impact of climate and glacier cover change on regional hydrology. The region is data-sparse and contains a complex assemblage of topography and land...
Regression equations for mean monthly streamflow in watersheds running off into the Gulf of Alaska have been determined. The equations were obtained by regressing observed streamflow at 246 USGS and Environment Canada gaging stations against a number of relevant meteorological and basin physical parameters. Meteorological parameters include mean monthly precipitation,...
Coastal communities in the U.S. Pacific Northwest (PNW) are rapidly engaging with the idea that hazards and environmental pressures are changing and may be characteristically different in the near future. This has led to a need for scientific knowledge and tools that can help coastal communities prepare and build resilience...
The hazards associated with tsunamis are well known and have been studied for decades. The majority of research is, however, focused on open coastlines which bear the brunt of a tsunamis force. Other regions that can be strongly impacted by a tsunami are large estuaries. Here, the tsunami encounters a...
