In tidally dominated deltas, sediment discharged from the river sources must transit through an estuarine region located within the distributary channels, where particle pathways can undergo significant transformations. Water column profiles and time series data were collected in the distributaries and shallow nearshore region offshore of the Fly River, Papua...
Although an inordinate fraction of the global sediment flux to the ocean occurs in tropical mountainous river margins, little is known regarding the sources and fate of organic matter in these systems. To address these knowledge gaps, the distribution and composition of organic matter in sediments from the Fly River...
This history concerns the scientific contributions of Charles
Babbage (1791-1871) to mathematics, to the invention of calculating
machines, and machine tools, to the development of scientific ideas
through a wide variety of scientific investigations and his involvement

During the depression era, millions of Americans listened to the weekly radio
addresses given by Father Charles Edward Coughlin. He devoted his career to
speaking out against the evils of America and felt it his duty to warn Americans
against the perpetrators of this evil. But after 1934, the tone...
Outcrops of old strata at the shelf edge resulting from erosive gravity‐driven flows
have been globally described on continental margins. The reexposure of old strata allows
for the reintroduction of aged organic carbon (OC), sequestered in marine sediments for
thousands of years, into the modern carbon cycle. This pool of...
Dedicated to recording, portraying, and indicting
the social inequities that he witnessed in nineteenth
century Victorian England, one of Charles Dickens' many
concerns was the roles assigned to women both in the
public and private spheres.
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the
narratives of Amy Dorrit and...
