a r t i c l e i n f o Accurate estimate of biomass and its changes at local to regional scales are important for a better understanding of ecosystem function, biodiversity and sustainability. In this study we explored the forest biomass prediction and dynamic monitoring from Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) waveform metrics at different key map scales.… (More)
The solid-state transformation phenomena of spinodal decomposition and nucleation and growth are presented as tools to create nanostructured thermoelectric materials with very low thermal conductivity and greatly enhanced figure of merit. The systems (PbTe)(1-x)(PbS)(x) and (Pb(0.95)Sn(0.05)Te)(1-x)(PbS)(x) are not solid solutions but phase separate into… (More)
Thermal adaptation of gross primary production and ecosystem respiration has been well documented over broad thermal gradients. However, no study has examined their interaction as a function of temperature, i.e. the thermal responses of net ecosystem exchange of carbon (NEE). In this study, we constructed temperature response curves of NEE against… (More)
The yield of neutrons produced by cosmic ray muons at a shallow depth of 32 meters of water equivalent has been measured. The Palo Verde neutrino detector, containing 11.3 tons of Gd loaded liquid scintillator and 3.5 tons of acrylic served as a target. The rate of one and two neutron captures was determined. Modeling the neutron capture efficiency allowed… (More)
The long-standing solar neutrino deecit and the anomaly in the ratio of electron to muon neutrinos, found for neutrinos generated in the atmosphere, are intriguing hints at the existence of nite neutrino masses and avor mixing. Our collaboration is preparing a low energy long baseline-oscillation experiment, to test the latter phenomenon. A 12 ton… (More)

Recognition for four types of sentences was assessed in 45 male and female kindergarteners, second, and fourth graders following story presentations, the recognition task consisting of true and false premise and inference sentences. The false recognition of the true inference type of sentence was thought to be indicative of active construction of meaning on… (More)
