The surface mining of coal has accelerated in
northwest Colorado to the point where public pressure
plus impending state and federal regulations dictate the
need for comprehensive reclamation plans. A large coal
company operating in Moffat County has solicited recommendations
concerning soils, hydrogeology, geomorphology,
aesthetics, wildlife, vegetation, microclimatology, and
A log step develops when large woody debris extends across the active
channel, creating a change in the water surface elevation as the stream
spills over the log step. By forming a series of vertical falls, log
steps reduce the amount of potential energy available for conversion to
The following pages will accomplish several tasks. First, the marsh subtypes described by Jefferson as used in the map legend will be outlined and critiqued. Second, the techniques used in the OCC & DC mapping will be discussed and consequent map overlays will be presented which depict the errors in...
The primary purpose of this study was to examine the relationship
between managing emotions scores and the variables of education level, affiliation,
number of relationships, commitment to relationships, and parental
The instrument used in the study was the Iowa Development
Inventory-B with questions added to measure behavior relative to...
Post World War II victory culture and its fallout-the consensus ideology-led to
the creation of a middle class willing to conform to a prescribed set of ideals, safely
removed from all danger, and enjoying the material benefits of a growing middle-class
income bracket. Walt Disney and Hugh Hefner, two seemingly...
The respiratory tract is lined with a mucous blanket which is
motivated by a ciliated epithelium. This blanket includes a lower
serous layer of fluid through which the cilia beat and an upper viscid
layer into which particulates from the inhaled air are deposited.
The movement of the mucous blanket...
Ant-300, a psychrophilic marine vibrio, was starved for periods in excess of one year. Cells starved at a high initial cell density increased in numbers from 100 to 800% of the initial number of cells during the first week. Fifty percent of the population remained viable for six weeks while...
Fuel loading patterns which have a minimum power peak are
economically desirable to allow power reactors to operate at the highest
possible power density and to minimize the possibility of fuel
failure. A computer code called SHUFLE was developed for pressurized
water reactors which shuffles the fuel in search of...
