Landscape attributes that vary with microtopography, such as active layer thickness (ALT), are labor intensive and difficult to document effectively through in situ methods at kilometer spatial extents, thus rendering remotely sensed methods desirable. Spatially explicit estimates of ALT can provide critically needed data for parameterization,(More)
The respiratory tract of male and female Syrian golden hamsters was treated intratracheally with 7H-dibenzo[c,g]carbazole (DBC), a tobacco smoke component. The carcinogen was given by multiple instillations at two dose levels. At the lower dose (9 mg), 35 of 46 hamsters (72%) developed respiratory tract tumors. The group receiving treatment at the higher(More)
The possible carcinogenic or fibrogenic effects of intratracheal instillation of a polycyclic hydrocarbon, benzo(a) pyrene (B(a)P), alone or in combination with several dusts - titanium dioxide (TiO2), aluminum oxide (Al2O3), carbon (C), and ferric oxide (Fe3O3) - were investigated in hamsters. When administered alone, the dusts induced interstitial cell(More)

Leveed submarine channels play a critical role in the transfer of sediment from the upper continental slopes to intraslope basins and ultimately deeper marine settings. Despite a reasonable understanding of how these channels grow once established, how such channels are initiated on previously unchannelized portions of the seafloor remains poorly(More)
