A Paleoclimate Modeling Experiment To Calculate The Soil Carbon Respiration Flux For The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, David M. Tracy 2012 University of Massachusetts Amherst

A Paleoclimate Modeling Experiment To Calculate The Soil Carbon Respiration Flux For The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, David M. Tracy

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) (55 million years ago) stands as the largest in a series of extreme warming (hyperthermal) climatic events, which are analogous to the modern day increase in greenhouse gas concentrations. Orbitally triggered (Lourens et al., 2005, Galeotti et al., 2010), the PETM is marked by a large (-3‰) carbon isotope excursion (CIE). Hypothesized to be methane driven, Zeebe et al., (2009) noted that a methane based release would only account for 3.5°C of warming. An isotopically heavier carbon, such as that of soil and C3 plants, has the potential to account for the warming ...

Anisotropic Diffusivity Of The Prismatic Surface Of Ice Is Model Independent, Natalie D. Bowens 2012 University of Puget Sound

Anisotropic Diffusivity Of The Prismatic Surface Of Ice Is Model Independent, Natalie D. Bowens

Summer Research

In simulations reported by Gladich et al., the surface diffusion on the prismatic surface of ice was found to be anisotropic at low temperatures and isotropic at high temperatures in the NE6 model. Our research investigated whether this effect is a true property of ice, or an artifact of NE6 model, by using the TIP4P/2005 and the TIP5P-EW representations. It was found that anisotropy of surface diffusion on the Prismatic facet at low temperatures is model independent. An Arrhenius analysis was also preformed to find the activation energies of diffusion in both models.


Set Ideal Topological Spaces, Florentin Smarandache, W.B. Vasantha Kandasamy 2012 University of New Mexico

Set Ideal Topological Spaces, Florentin Smarandache, W.B. Vasantha Kandasamy

Mathematics and Statistics Faculty and Staff Publications

In this book the authors for the first time introduce a new type of topological spaces called the set ideal topological spaces using rings or semigroups, or used in the mutually exclusive sense. This type of topological spaces use the class of set ideals of a ring (semigroups). The rings or semigroups can be finite or infinite order. By this method we get complex modulo finite integer set ideal topological spaces using finite complex modulo integer rings or finite complex modulo integer semigroups. Also authors construct neutrosophic set ideal toplogical spaces of both finite and infinite order as well as ...


Hydrogen Production From Biogas By Oxy-Reforming: Reaction System Analysis, Aleksandra Terlecka, Wojciech M. Budzianowski 2011 Wroclaw University of Technology

Hydrogen Production From Biogas By Oxy-Reforming: Reaction System Analysis, Aleksandra Terlecka, Wojciech M. Budzianowski

Wojciech Budzianowski

Oxy-reforming is emerging as an interesting alternative to conventional methods of hydrogen generation. The current article characterises this process through analysis of individual reactions: SMR (steam methane reforming), WGS (water gas shift) and CPO (catalytic partial oxidation). Analyses relate to optimisation of thermal conditions thus enabling cost-effectivenes of the process.


Assessment Of Collimator Jaw Optimization In Reducing Normal Tissue Irradiation With Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, Sarah Joy 2011 The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston

Assessment Of Collimator Jaw Optimization In Reducing Normal Tissue Irradiation With Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, Sarah Joy

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Dissertations and Theses (Open Access)

Purpose: To evaluate normal tissue dose reduction in step-and-shoot intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) on the Varian 2100 platform by tracking the multileaf collimator (MLC) apertures with the accelerator jaws.

Methods: Clinical radiation treatment plans for 10 thoracic, 3 pediatric and 3 head and neck patients were converted to plans with the jaws tracking each segment’s MLC apertures. Each segment was then renormalized to account for the change in collimator scatter to obtain target coverage within 1% of that in the original plan. The new plans were compared to the original plans in a commercial radiation treatment planning system (TPS ...

Influence Of Energy Policy On The Rate Of Implementation Of Biogas Power Plants In Germany During The 2001-2010 Decade, Izabela Chasiak, Wojciech M. Budzianowski

Wojciech Budzianowski

The current article describes energy policy tools, which caused intensive development of biogas-based power generation in Germany during the 2001-2010 decade. The German system of financial support to biogas power plants is presented in details. It is shown that in Germany, i.e. in a country characterised by similar climate and potentials to renewable energy to Poland, biogas power plants cover 10,7% of electricity demands in 2010, while all renewable energy sources cover only 5,4% of electricity demands. It is emphasised that under favourable Polish energy policy, the development of biogas energy can be very rapid.
