Based on a pilot study completed near Heceta
Beach, Oregon, guidelines have been proposed for
the development of Oregon coastal sand areas.
The guidelines, in the form of performance standards
are designed with respect to the variability of
coastal sand areas. Landscape units and vegetation
associations were grouped to reflect...
This paper involved the estimation of a series of fare
equations in order to ascertain the effects of actual and
potential competition by Southwest on markets for air
travel. The results indicate that pricing strategies differ
depending on Southwest's presence on a route, which is not
consistent with the theory...
Purpose of the Study
The purpose of this study was to determine if eighth grade
students taking industrial arts education for the first time would
experience a significant shift in beliefs about the problem solving
process and have class performance altered by participation in project
Occupational Versatility. In order to...
Altitudinal variations in upland regions of the earth create
variable climatic zones and conditions. Plant and animal
communities must adapt to these conditions, and when they reach
their tolerance limits for environmental conditions at the upper
levels of a zone, they cease to exist in the environment. Humans
This report frames the debate over studded tires in terms of economic principles of marginal cost pricing and efficient resource allocation. In the absence of a user tax, the pavement damage caused by studded tires results in inefficient pricing because social costs associated with the damage are excluded from the...
This dissertation consists of two essays that address code-sharing alliances in the U.S. domestic airline industry.
The first essay examines the economic impact of code-sharing using data from the complementary code-sharing agreement between Southwest and ATA Airlines. This code-share agreement is found to decrease air fares and increase passenger volumes...
This study re-examines how variations in market power
across industries affect the relative number of females and
males hired in a given occupation. The study builds upon
similar work done by Sharon Oster (1975) to examine the female
to male wage differences. Both market power and human capital
Collaborative fisheries research provides a mechanism for integrating the unique knowledge, experience, and skills of fishermen and scientists. It is a joint intellectual endeavor that begins with the inception of a project and continues until its final stages, with each group having mutual investment in-and ownership of-the project. Collaborative fisheries...
