The complexity of human/riverine systems has led to an increasing focus on land
use patterns and policy. My goal is to understand the dynamics of a coupled human and
natural system. The central question is how people in the community of Scio, Oregon
perceive flooding, water quality, and riparian habitat....
Six Tertiary units are exposed in the Onion Peak area near the town of Cannon Beach., Oregon. The units consist of: late Eocene to
early Miocene Oswald West mudstones (informal), middle Miocene Astoria Formation (Angora Peak sandstone and Silver Point mudstone members.-informal), middle Miocene basalts of intrusive and extrusive Depoe...
Prairies were once the dominant vegetation type in Oregon's Willamette
Valley. Land use conversion, fire suppression, succession, and invasive species have
reduced Willamette Valley prairies to less than 1% of their historical area. The
remnant prairies that persist today are small in size and are highly fragmented.
Marginal strips of...

Longitudinal patterns of fish and benthic invertebrate distribution and
habitat use were similar in Thomas Creek, Oregon but clarity of these patterns
differed. I studied fish and aquatic invertebrates simultaneously, at multiple
scales, and used multivariate statistical techniques to compare responses to the
same environmental conditions. Both types of organisms...
The Thomas Kay Woolen Mill once manufactured cloth with a
reputation renowned throughout the United States. This study is an
attempt to report the history of the mill. Data are categorized by:
the Kay family; production including plant, machinery, raw materials
used, goods manufactured; management including the effects of
Experiments were conducted to determine the influence of cultural management practices on weed growth in nursery containers. Experiments 1 and 2 evaluated the effects of dolomitic lime rate and application method on substrate pH, creeping woodsorrel (Oxalis corniculata L.) establishment in containers, and growth of azalea (Rhododendron ‘Rosebud’) and pieris...
The electric motor has for an number of
years occupied an important position in the operation
of wood-working machinery, of moderate capacity, for
example the planing mills, sash and door factories
and many of the other similar wood working shops.
However its adoption in the more trying field of saw...
Gravity, magnetic and seismic data indicate that the oceanic
crust is 9.7 km thick west of the Continental Borderland. The top
of the mantle is about 12 km deep under the Borderland, and deepens
to 27 km beneath the Peninsular Ranges of Baja California. The
mantle is about 20 km...
