A Graphic Résumé Of The Pleistocene Of Nebraska
(With Notes On The Fossil Mammalian Remains), C. Bertrand Schultz, Gilbert C. Lueninghoener, W. D. Frankforter
Bulletin of the University of Nebraska State Museum
I T SEEMS desirable at this time to present a graphic resume of the Nebraska Pleistocene, together with a summary of the stratigraphic sequences of the fossil vertebrates. This report is based on data taken from various publications' in addition to information gathered by the present writers during the past fifteen or more field seasons. Intensive work has been done in the past five years in connection with recovery of paleontological material in the areas where government dams are under construction (Schultz, Lueninghoener, and Frankforter, 1948; Schultz and Frankforter, 1948; Holder and Wike, 1949). The information in the present paper ...
Numerical Methods 101 - Convergence Of Numerical Models,

Numerical Methods 101 - Convergence Of Numerical Models, David B. Thompson
USGS Staff -- Published Research
A numerical model is convergent if and only if a sequence of model solutions with increasingly refined solution domains approaches a fixed value. Furthermore, a numerical model is consistent only if this sequence converges to the solution of the continuous equations which govern the physical phenomenon being modeled. Given that a model is consistent, it is insufficient to apply it to a problem without testing for sensitivity to the size of the time and distance steps which form the discrete approximation of the solution domain. That is, convergence testing is a required component of any modeling study.
Two models were ...
A Numerical Model Investigation Of The Role Of The Glacier Bed In Regulating Grounding Line Retreat Of Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica,
Portland State University
A Numerical Model Investigation Of The Role Of The Glacier Bed In Regulating Grounding Line Retreat Of Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica, Michael Scott Waibel
Dissertations and Theses
I examine how two different realizations of bed morphology affect Thwaites Glacier response to ocean warming through the initiation of marine ice sheet instability and associated grounding line retreat. A state of the art numerical ice sheet model is used for this purpose. The bed configurations used are the 1-km resolution interpolated BEDMAP2 bed and a higher-resolution conditional simulation produced by John Goff at the University of Texas using the same underlying data. The model is forced using a slow ramp approach, where melt of ice on the floating side of the grounding line is increased over time, which gently ...
Extent Of Capillary Rise In Sands And Silts,
Western Michigan University
Extent Of Capillary Rise In Sands And Silts, Rachel Lynn Salim
The values reported in literature for the height of capillary rise in fine sands, silts, and clays are contradictory. Most of the values were based on mathematical models, which used estimated rather than measured input data. This work measured capillary rise values in laboratory experiments in fine-grained sands and silts.
Two uniform sands with grains 0.35--0.7 mm in diameter and 0.3-0.6 mm in diameter, silt with an average grain size below 40 microns, and 0.35--0.7 mm sand coated with a water-repellant spray were carefully packed into two-inch diameter glass columns. These columns were placed ...
Optimum Moisture Content And Maximum Dry Unit Weight For Compaction Of Interdisciplinary Science Center Soil,

Optimum Moisture Content And Maximum Dry Unit Weight For Compaction Of Interdisciplinary Science Center Soil, Rachel A. Lunstroth, Maria Camilla O'Toole, Melissa Simbler
Eastern Washington University’s is currently undergoing construction with the addition of the Interdisciplinary Science Center. A soil sample was collected from the construction site and over the course of Fall Quarter 2018 we performed a series of tests on this soil allowing us to classify the soil based on the Unified Soil Classification System. These tests include: a specific gravity determination test according to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard D854, a sieve and hydrometer analysis according to the ASTM standard D422, and an Atterberg limits test according to the ASTM standard D-4318. We also performed ...
Water Resources Data For Nebraska Water Year 1976,
University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Water Resources Data For Nebraska Water Year 1976
Conservation and Survey Division
Water resources data for the 1976 water year for Nebraska consist of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; stage and contents of lakes and reservoirs; and water levels and water quality in wells and springs. This report contains discharge records for 146 gaging stations; stage and contents for 9 lakes and reservoirs; water quality for 40 gaging stations, 18 ungaged stations, 27 partial-record flow stations, and 96 wells; and water levels for 66 observation wells. Also included are 114 crest-stage partial-record stations and 12 low-flow partialrecord stations. Additional water data were collected at various sites, not part ...

Principles Of Stable Isotope Geochemistry, 2nd Edition,
University of New Mexico
Principles Of Stable Isotope Geochemistry, 2nd Edition, Zachary Sharp
Principles of Stable Isotope Geochemistry is written as a textbook to accompany a one semester course in Stable Isotope Geochemistry. There are 13 chapters, each dealing with a specific subtopic of the field. Other than Chapters 1 and 2 – introduction and definitions – most of the remaining chapters can be read without reliance on the preceding ones. It is also hoped that the book will serve as a general reference volume for researchers in the field.
Principles of Stable Isotope Geochemistry has been organized in such a way that major concepts are explained and accompanied by numerous examples. In most cases ...
