Measurement of the Interior Structure of Thin Polymer Films Using Grazing Incidence Diffuse X-Ray Scattering
(American Physical Society, 2010)
A method is developed for calculating the small-angle x-ray scattering originating from within the interior of a thin film under grazing incidence illumination. This offers the possibility of using x-ray scattering to ...
Mandala Fall/Winter 2010-2011
(Center for Southeast Asian Studies, 2010)
A Climatology of Fatal Convective Wind Events by Storm Type
(American Meteorological Society, 2010-10)
There are still hundreds of casualties produced by thunderstorm hazards each year in the United States despite the many recent advances in prediction and mitigation of the effects of convective storms. Of the four most ...
Climatological Radar Delineation of Urban Convection for Atlanta, Georgia
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2010)
The distribution of warm season (June through August) thunderstorm activity surrounding Atlanta, Georgia from 1997 to 2006 was determined utilizing composite reflectivity data obtained from the network of National Weather ...
Phylogenetically Widespread Multiple Paternity in New World Natricine Snakes
(Herpetological Conservation and Biology, 2010)
We used microsatellite DNA markers to identify the extent to which multiple paternity within litters occurs among species of New World natricine snakes. We selected seven species to represent the three major clades ...
Evolution and Function of the Plant Cell Wall Synthesis-Related Glycosyltransferase Family 8
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 2010)
Carbohydrate-active enzyme glycosyltransferase family 8 (GT8) includes the plant galacturonosyltransferase1-related gene family of proven and putative a-galacturonosyltransferase (GAUT) and GAUT-like (GATL) genes. We ...
Prognosis for Ecosystem Recovery Following Rodent Eradication and Seabird Restoration in an Island Archipelago
(Ecological Society of America, 2010-07)
Invasive species are widespread and can have devastating effects on biota, especially insular biota. Invasive species eradications are increasingly employed to promote island recovery to preinvasion states. However, it ...
A Skeleton Tells Its Own Story: Forensic Anthropological Analysis for the Science Classroom Laboratory
(University of California Press, 2010-03)
The techniques of forensic anthropology and pathology can provide new information to increase student interest in studying the structural details of the human skeleton. We present a simplified methodology for assessing ...
HOCHSCHILD COHOMOLOGY OF GROUP EXTENSIONS OF QUANTUM SYMMETRIC ALGEBRAS
(American Mathematical Society, 2010-09-16)
Quantum symmetric algebras (or noncommutative polynomial rings) arise in many places in mathematics. In this article we find the multiplicative structure of their Hochschild cohomology when the coefficients are in an ...
