    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 ...
  • Stewart, R. D.; Liu, Z.; Rupp, D. E.; Higgins, C. W.; Selker, J. S. (Copernicus Publications, 2014)
    Accurate measurement of the amount and timing of surface runoff at multiple scales is needed to understand fundamental hydrological processes. At the plot-scale (i.e., length scales on the order of 1 to 10 m) current met ...
  • Stewart, R. D.; Liu, Z.; Rupp, D. E.; Higgins, C. W.; Selker, J. S. (Copernicus Publications, 2015)
    Accurate measurement of the amount and timing of surface runoff at multiple scales is needed to understand fundamental hydrological processes. At the plot scale (i.e., length scales on the order of 1–10 m) current method ...
  • 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 ...

    A new multi-telescope scanning Raman lidar designed to measure the water vapor mixing ratio for a complete diurnal cycle with high raw spatial (1.25 m) and temporal (1 s) resolutions is presented. The high resolution all ...
  • Dickson, David J.; Ely, Roger L. (Springer, 2013-03)
    Cyanobacteria inhabit nearly every ecosystem on earth, play a vital role in nutrient cycling, and are useful as model organisms for fundamental research in photosynthesis and carbon and nitrogen fixation. In addition, ...
  • Barry, D. A.; Sander, G. C.; Jomaa, S.; Yeghiazarian, L.; Steenhuis, T. S.; Selker, J. S. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-10-07)
