The Waste Dump Design for Erosion Control study was initiated in 1983. Several foothills/mountain coal mine waste dumps were selected for the purpose of evaluating the effects of final configuration on the amount of surface erosion occurring on those dump surfaces. A series of research plots was...
Methods to improve air quality emission and meteorological model input data records and validation techniques used to verify calculated annual, monthly, and daily calculations at ground level for the CRSTER model are described. Due to the limited nature of verification data and unique polar...
Using drilled-undrilled shell damage analysis to estimate crushing predation frequencies in modern marine gastropod assemblagesDownload
Predation is a frequently studied subject, but estimating crushing predation in mollusk communities is challenging. Shells record successful attacks, but it is not always possible to identify attacks on an individual basis. Repair scar frequency is a common proxy for crushing mortality, but shell...
Two-Dimensional Modeling of the Effect of Relative Humidity on Volatile Organic Compounds Adsorption in a Fixed Bed AdsorberDownload
Water vapor can affect adsorption of volatile organic compound (VOC) onto activated carbon. In this research, a two-dimensional heterogenous computational fluid dynamics model was developed and validated to understand the mechanism and kinetics during competitive adsorption between VOC and water...
Sodium proton exchangers (NHEs) are polytopic membrane proteins that, in archaea, bacteria, yeast and plants, provide increased salt tolerance by removing excess toxic sodium, and in mammals regulate cell volume, growth, differentiation, proliferation, migration and apoptosis in relation to...
Based on the underlying structure of fabric materials, a three-scale model is constructed to describe the mechanical behavior of fabric materials. The current model assumes that fabric materials take on an overall behavior of anisotropic membranes, so membrane scale is taken as the macroscopic or...
A study of the winds of the Alberta Tar Sands region was performed by the MEP Company from 1974 to 1976. The objectives of this study were to establish the wind climatology of the region in order to predict the dispersion of emissions from the Syncrude plant. Detailed studies of the vertical,...
High-resolution regional climate simulations of the Karakoram, Himalaya have been performed for investigation into the atmospheric dynamics in this region, and their role in the Karakoram’s snowfall accumulation and glacial evolution. It has been seen through a combination of field measurements...
Purpose: This study examined whether parent physical activity (PA) is related to children’s PA, as measured with pedometers. Methods: As part of a longitudinal cohort study being conducted in Edmonton, Canada, 471 children between the ages of 6- and 10-years-old, wore SC-T2 pedometers for four...
