To obtain data on the decomposition of the forest floor, a battery operated electrolytic respirometer was developed making it possible to measure CO₂ evolution from field moist forest floor samples in situ independent of root respiration. Banks of four respirometers powered by two 12-volt batteries were installed in three old...
Three deep experimental filters were used to evaluate the influence
of the physical factors of media size, depth of filter, and organic and hydraulic loading on contact time and the rate of removal
of organic material by the biological growth on the filters. A
further correlation was made between contact...
This study measures the recreational boating use in Prince William Sound,
Alaska. Improved access conditions to the Sound over the last decade coupled with a
statewide increase in outdoor recreation participation among both resident and out of
state tourists have made the Sound a focal point for recreational boating in...
The problem of this study was to determine whether graduate students
in education (the experimentals) participating in a counseling
practicum would demonstrate a change in self-actualization which would
be significantly different when compared with other graduate students
in education (the comparisons) who were not participating in the above
Modern science was produced by a Christian society,
and although science has had an effect on Christianity, it
could not itself remain unaffected. In the second half of
the nineteenth century, the subject of evolution was as
much a religious as a scientific issue. The battle line
was drawn and...
The objective of this study was to determine the internal consistency
rating for the Film Test for Understanding Behavior (FUB)
and the three subscales within the test. An estimation formula which
contrasts sums of squares generated from an analysis of variance
was used to compute the internal consistency reliability coefficients...
Industry today is pushing personal portable handheld communication de- vices, from cellular telephones to personal navigation systems, and society is embracing the push. The goal is to make compact multi-functional handheld products that can transfer information to those around us through high bandwidth mobile communications. These modules rely heavily on...
The influence of media size upon the effective removal
of organic waste from a liquid substrate was studied by the
use of three experimental trickling filters under a set
of uniform operating conditions. The range of experiments
involved hydraulic loadings of increasing magnitude and
of constant organic strength.
The analysis of prehistoric stone features has suffered for two separate but related reasons. The first is the lack of stringency in defining the terms attributed to these structures and, second, the perception of a lack of formal attributes exhibited by them. These two factors have made it impossible to...
