    The performance of an over 10 times larger microbial fuel cell (MFC) with double cloth electrode assembly (CEA) during 63 days of continuous operation demonstrates that the excellent performance of CEA-MFC can be further ...
  • Bailey, D. R.; Owen, J. S.; Wagner, J.; Selker, J. S. (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2013-09)
    Many nurseries are considering soil moisture sensor networks to improve water application efficiency. Due to the necessarily wide distribution of sensors at a nursery, a wireless network is easier to install, more flexi ...
  • Asmare, A. M.; Demessie, B. A.; Murthy, G. S. (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2014)
    Treatment of waste streams using algae can minimize eutrophication by removing inorganic nutrients while producing biomass which can be used for biofuels, animal feed, and fertilizer production. While there are many stu ...
  • Kumar, Deepak; Murthy, Ganti S. (Springer, 2012-05)
    Background, aim and scope: The aim of this study was to perform a well-to-pump life cycle assessment (LCA) to investigate the overall net energy balance and environmental impact of bioethanol production using Tall Fescue ...
  • Mochizuki, Junko; Yanagida, John F.; Kumar, Deepak; Takara, Devin; Murthy, Ganti S. (American Institute of Physics Publishing, 2014-07)
    This study conducted well-to-pump and well-to wheel life-cycle assessment of fossil energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions during ethanol production from tropical Banagrass (Pennisetum purpureum) using green-pro ...
  • Sayde, Chadi; Benitez Buelga, Javier; Rodriguez-Sinobas, Leonor; El Khoury, Laureine; English, Marshall; van de Giesen, Nick; Selker, John S. (American Geophysical Union, 2014-09)
    The Actively Heated Fiber Optic (AHFO) method is shown to be capable of measuring soil water content several times per hour at 0.25 m spacing along cables of multiple kilometers in length. AHFO is based on distributed ...
  • Higgins, Chad W.; Pardyjak, Eric; Froidevaux, Martin; Simeonov, Valentin; Parlange, Marc B. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-12)
    The flux of water vapor due to advection is measured using high-resolution Raman lidar that was orientated horizontally across a land–lake transition. At the same time, a full surface energy balance is performed to asse ...
  • Stewart, Ryan D.; Abou Najm, Majdi R.; Rupp, David E.; Selker, John S. (Soil Science Society of America, 2012-05)
    Shrinkage cracks in soil function as a dominant control on the partitioning and distribution of moisture fluxes in the vadose zone. Their dynamics influence moisture balance and control water availability for runoff, dee ...
  • Li, Cheng; Lesnik, Keaton L.; Liu, Hong (MDPI - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2013-09-10)
    Biodiesel has gained a significant amount of attention over the past decade as an environmentally friendly fuel that is capable of being utilized by a conventional diesel engine. However, the biodiesel production proce ...
  • Stewart, Ryan D.; Rupp, David E.; Abou Najm, Majdi R.; Selker, John S. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-10-28)
    A soil’s capillarity, associated with the parameter sorptivity, is a dominant control on infiltration, particularly at the onset of rainfall or irrigation. Many mathematical models used to estimate sorptivity are only ...
  • Eberly, Jed O.; Ely, Roger L. (Springer, 2012-03-01)
    The growth characteristics of Thermosynechococcus elongatus on elevated CO₂ were studied in a photobioreactor. Cultures were able to grow on up to 20% CO₂. The maximum productivity and CO₂ fixation rates were 0.09 ± A 0. ...
  • Steenhuis, Tammo S.; Baver, Christine E.; Hasanpour, Bahareh; Stoof, Cathelijne R.; DiCarlo, David A.; Selker, John S. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-11-22)
    To explain the dynamic behavior of the matric potential at the wetting front of gravity driven fingers, we take into account the pressure across the interface that is not continuous and depends on the radius of the men ...
  • Juneja, Ankita; Kumar, Deepak; Williams, John D.; Wysocki, Donald J.; Murthy, Ganti S. (American Institute of Physics, 2011-11-01)
    Increase in energy demand has led towards considering lignocellulosic feedstocks as potential for ethanol production. Aim of this study was to estimate the potential of grass straws from conservation reserve program (CRP ...
