Desert Pool {If Every Desert Was Once A Sea}, Karen Miranda Abel Sep 2017

Desert Pool {If Every Desert Was Once A Sea}, Karen Miranda Abel

The Goose

Desert Pool {If every desert was once a sea} is a site-specific art project by Canadian artist Karen Miranda Abel completed in 2016 while artist-in-residence at Joya: arte + ecología, an arts-led research centre situated in an alpine desert within a national park in southern Spain. The elemental installation represents an envisioning of the ancient sea that occupied the Sierra de María-Los Vélez Natural Park millions of years before the current desert ecology, a time when its highest mountain peaks may have been islands.


Coastal Eolian Sand-Ramp Development Related To Paleo-Sea-Level Changes During The Latest Pleistocene And Holocene (21–0 Ka) In San Miguel Island, California, U.S.A., Curt D. Peterson, Jon M. Erlandson, Errol Stock, Steve W. Hostetler, David M. Price Sep 2017

Coastal Eolian Sand-Ramp Development Related To Paleo-Sea-Level Changes During The Latest Pleistocene And Holocene (21–0 Ka) In San Miguel Island, California, U.S.A., Curt D. Peterson, Jon M. Erlandson, Errol Stock, Steve W. Hostetler, David M. Price

Geology Faculty Publications and Presentations

Coastal eolian sand ramps (5–130 m elevation) on the northern slope (windward) side of the small San Miguel Island (13 km in W-E length) range in age from late Pleistocene to modern time, though a major hiatus in sand-ramp growth occurred during the early Holocene marine transgression (16–9 ka). The Holocene sand ramps (1–5 m measured thicknesses) currently lack large dune forms, thereby representing deflated erosional remnants, locally covering thicker late Pleistocene sand-ramp deposits. The ramp sand was initially supplied from the adjacent island-shelf platform, extending about 20 km north of the present coastline. The sand-ramp deposits ...

High-Resolution Elevation Mapping Of The Mcmurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica, And Surrounding Regions, Andrew G. Fountain, Juan C. Fernandez-Diaz, Maciej K. Obryk, Joseph Levy, Michael N. Gooseff, David J. Van Horn, Paul Morin, Ramesh Shrestha Aug 2017

High-Resolution Elevation Mapping Of The Mcmurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica, And Surrounding Regions, Andrew G. Fountain, Juan C. Fernandez-Diaz, Maciej K. Obryk, Joseph Levy, Michael N. Gooseff, David J. Van Horn, Paul Morin, Ramesh Shrestha

Andrew G. Fountain

We present detailed surface elevation measurements for the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica derived from aerial lidar surveys flown in the austral summer of 2014–2015 as part of an effort to understand geomorphic changes over the past decade. Lidar return density varied from 2 to > 10 returns m−2with an average of about 5 returns m−2. Vertical and horizontal accuracies are estimated to be 7 and 3 cm, respectively. In addition to our intended targets, other ad hoc regions were also surveyed including the Pegasus flight facility and two regions on Ross Island, McMurdo Station, Scott Base (and surroundings ...

Estimation Of Total Dissolved Solid In Groundwater Using Multiple Linear Regression Analysis Around Igando Dumpsites In Lagos, South-West, Nigeria, Anthony A. Ameloko, Elijah A. Ayolabi Aug 2017

Estimation Of Total Dissolved Solid In Groundwater Using Multiple Linear Regression Analysis Around Igando Dumpsites In Lagos, South-West, Nigeria, Anthony A. Ameloko, Elijah A. Ayolabi

Confluence Journal of Environmental Studies (CJES), Kogi State University, Nigeria

This study presents a multiple linear regression (MLR) TDS model that relates the TDS data obtained from groundwater samples to the geophysical data obtained from Electromagnetic (EM) data, as an alternative approach to mapping and monitoring the impact of TDS in groundwater. The predictive power of the developed MLR TDS model was appraised to determine the feasibility of using the TDS model to predict groundwater TDS around the study area. Although, the accuracy of the developed TDS model is site specific, the EM data around the area can be applied to the model to determine TDS concentration in groundwater, thus ...

Aim of study: The objective of this study was to compare the quantity and quality of TF (throughfall) in an indigenous, but degraded, stand of Fagus orientalis and Picea abies plantation. Area of study: Forests of Kelar-Dasht region located in Mazandaran province, northern Iran. Material and Methods: TF measured by twenty collectors that were distributed randomly underneath each stand. For 21 storms sampled in 2012 (August-December) and 2013 (April-June), we analyzed pH, EC, Ca2+, Mg2+, K+, NO3-, and P of gross rainfall (GR) and TF. Main results: Cumulative interception (I) for F. orientalis and P. abies were 114.2 mm ...


Molecular And Optical Properties Of Tree-Derived Dissolved Organic Matter In Throughfall And Stemflow From Live Oaks And Eastern Red Cedar, Aron Stubbins, Leticia M. Silva, Thorsten Dittmar, John T. Van Stan Aug 2017

Molecular And Optical Properties Of Tree-Derived Dissolved Organic Matter In Throughfall And Stemflow From Live Oaks And Eastern Red Cedar, Aron Stubbins, Leticia M. Silva, Thorsten Dittmar, John T. Van Stan

John T. Van Stan II

Studies of dissolved organic matter (DOM) transport through terrestrial aquatic systems usually start at the stream. However, the interception of rainwater by vegetation marks the beginning of the terrestrial hydrological cycle making trees the headwaters of aquatic carbon cycling. Rainwater interacts with trees picking up tree-DOM, which is then exported from the tree in stemflow and throughfall. Stemflow denotes water flowing down the tree trunk, while throughfall is the water that drips through the leaves of the canopy. We report the concentrations, optical properties (light absorbance) and molecular signatures (ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry) of tree-DOM in throughfall and stemflow from ...
