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...
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...

As indicated by the title, this thesis generalizes the Main Inertia
Theorem of Ostrowski and Schneider . The first three results
concern the formation of a polynomial function f(A, A*, H) so that
the existence of an hermitian H for which f(A, A*, H) is positive
definite is a necessary...
Throughout the course of this thesis, I argue that the prose of David Foster Wallace, specifically his posthumously published novel The Pale King, inhabits a middle ground between universal sincerity and the particularized authenticity of postmodern irony. I examine Lionel Trilling's definitions of sincerity and authenticity before moving toward an...
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...
The Champoeg townsite first developed due to its ideal settlement and trade location within the Willamette Valley, becoming the ‘legal birthplace of Oregon’ in 1843. However, by 1860 Champoeg’s significance had begun to decline, and in December of 1861 a devastating flood wiped out the townsite. Archaeological excavations took place...
Using an oral history method, the author has recorded the life
history of Rosa González Gómez, a Mexican woman who spends part of
each year in the United States and part in Mexico. Comparing the
story of Rosa's life, as told in her own words, with literature in the
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.

Despite the considerable advances of deposition technologies, it remains a significant challenge to form conformal deposition on surface of nanoporous carbons. Here, we introduce a new ambient hydrolysis deposition method that employs and controls pre-adsorbed water vapor on nanoporous carbons to define the deposition of TiO₂. We converted the deposited...
