Co2-Warming, Rising Sea-Level And Retreating Coasts: Review And Critique, Edward A. Bryant Nov 1987

Co2-Warming, Rising Sea-Level And Retreating Coasts: Review And Critique, Edward A. Bryant

Faculty of Science - Papers (Archive)

A CO2-warming atmospheric scenario, whereby increased concentrations of 'greenhouse' gases result in warmer temperatures that either melt near-polar ice or cause thermal expansion of ocean waters, thus leading to increased sea-levels and exacerbated coastal erosion, assumes fundamental but unproven cause-and-effect relationships. General circulation models have reinforced claims of an accelerated warming and indirectly given support to the complete scenario, but ignore the point that global climate and not just air temperatures have changed over the past century. Indeed, it is difficult to prove that air temperatures have warmed naturally outside of urban centres over this period. To attribute recent temperature ...


Labouring Men: Love, Sex And Strife , Mike Donaldson Jul 1987

Labouring Men: Love, Sex And Strife , Mike Donaldson

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

Studies of masculinity and studies of class are incomplete unless they take each other seriously. This article explores the interrelations between class situation and experience, paid work, the family-household, masculinity and male heterosexuality as they are borne and reproduced by labouring men. Against the psycho┬Člogisation of the 'men's liberationists' this article insists on the salience of structure. It suggests that the working class, of which labouring men are a small part, can be understood in its strategic power and weaknesses only through the study of the whole lives of its members, changing and changed by each other as ...


Identification Of Cryptosporidium Oocysts In River Water, Jerry Ongerth, Henry Stibbs Jan 1987

Identification Of Cryptosporidium Oocysts In River Water, Jerry Ongerth, Henry Stibbs

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Water samples were collected from four rivers in Washington State and two rivers in California and examined for the presence of Cryptosporidium oocysts. Oocyst-sized particles were concentrated from 20-liter samples of water by membrane filtration, centrifugation, and differential sedimentation. The particle concentrate was then deposited on a 25-mm-diameter membrane filter for oocyst identification by indirect immunofluorescence assay. The identification procedure had a limit of detection of about five oocysts per liter. Cryptosporidium oocysts were found in each of 11 river water samples examined. Concentrations ranged from 2 to 112 oocysts per liter. The finding of Cryptosporidium oocysts in all samples ...


The Archaeology Of Social Complexity In South-East Queensland, Michael Morwood Jan 1987

The Archaeology Of Social Complexity In South-East Queensland, Michael Morwood

Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health - Papers: part A

The widespread alliance systems of Australian Aboriginal society had an economic and survival value in harsh environments, but in resource-rich areas such as South-east Queensland it is more a question of strategies for increasing regional carrying capacity. Recent archaeological results in the area, with evidence of increases in site numbers and artefact deposition rates and diversification of subsistence resources to include small-bodied species, show the development of new patterns of technology, economy and demography following major environmental changes in the post-Pleistocene period. Widespread changes in Australian prehistory around 4000 years ago may have been triggered in certain key areas such ...


A Study Of Headache In North American Primary Care: Report For The Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network, L A. Becker, Donald C. Iverson, F M. Read, N Calogne, R S. Miller, W L. Freeman Jan 1987

A Study Of Headache In North American Primary Care: Report For The Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network, L A. Becker, Donald C. Iverson, F M. Read, N Calogne, R S. Miller, W L. Freeman

Headache is a common symptom in primary care about which surprisingly little is known. Over a 14-month period 3847 patients making 4940 consecutive visits for headache to 38 primary care practices in the USA and Canada were studied. The clinical characteristics of patients, as well as the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies employed by their doctors, were examined. Visits for headache represented 1.5% of all visits during this period. Most patients (72.0%) made only one visit, and nearly half of the headaches reported were new. Only a small number of patients (3.0%) received a computerized tomographic scan; other ...


Ephemera In Archives: What To Do?, Michael K. Organ Jan 1987

Ephemera In Archives: What To Do?, Michael K. Organ

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

This article attempts to define ephemera for archivists and librarians; looks at the methods o f dealing with ephemera previously employed by both groups; suggests that instead o f undergoing off-hand destruction, ephemera be considered a necessary part o f a comprehensive archival collection; and, finally, proposes a simple system for gaining physical and intellectual control over ephemera in an Archives, based on methods employed by the University o f New South Wales Archives.


Reminiscences Of Illawarra By Alexander Stewart, Michael K. Organ Jan 1987

Reminiscences Of Illawarra By Alexander Stewart, Michael K. Organ

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The following "Reminiscences of Illawarra" initially appeared in the Illawarra Mercury between 17 April and 18 August 1894 in 24 parts, each part usually dealing with a separate aspect of the very early history of Illawarra, and more specifically with the early development of the township of Wollongong.This book is one of a continuing series to be published as aids to the study of local history in Illawarra. Some thirty works are at present in preparation or in contemplation. The series' objective is to provide low-cost authentic source material for students as well as general readers. Some of the ...


Representations Of Crossed Products By Coactions And Principal Bundles, M B. Landstad, J Phillips, Iain Raeburn, C E. Sutherland Jan 1987

Representations Of Crossed Products By Coactions And Principal Bundles, M B. Landstad, J Phillips, Iain Raeburn, C E. Sutherland

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

The main purpose of this paper is to establish a covariant representation theory for coactions of locally compact groups on C*-algebras (including a notion of exterior equivalence), to show how these results extend the usual notions for actions of groups on C*-algebras, and to apply these ideas to classes of coactions termed pointwise unitary and locally unitary to obtain a complete realization of the isomorphism theory of locally trivial principal G-bundles in this context. We are also able to obtain all (Cartan) principal G-bundles in this context, but their isomorphism theory remains elusive.


An Application Of Optical Surface Assessment To Engine Preparation Techniques, F. Sweeney, E. J. Davis, Trevor A. Spedding, K. J. Stout Jan 1987

An Application Of Optical Surface Assessment To Engine Preparation Techniques, F. Sweeney, E. J. Davis, Trevor A. Spedding, K. J. Stout

Faculty of Commerce - Papers (Archive)

This paper presents a study of established two dimensional models which have been applied to the characterization of the preparation of engine cylinder liners and bores. These models are extended to three dimensions and quantified using a three dimensional stylus measuring system consisting of a computer controlled Talysurf 5 stylus instrument and a precision linear translation stage. Relocation techniques are then employed and the surface finish is assessed using a computer controlled laser measuring system. With reference to the original models it is shown that engine preparation techniques may be monitored using an optical assessment of this kind. Thus an ...
