Improving children's abilities to recognize when they are full is one strategy to prevent overweight, but currently, there are few validated instruments to assist this process. In the present study, we developed and tested the potential of an analog scaling device for quantifying sensations such as fullness in 4-5 year old children. The device was a picture(More)
In the transition zone between aquifers and basal aquitards, the perchloroethene-pools are more recalcitrant than those elsewhere in the aquifer. The aim of this study is to demonstrate that the transition zone is an ecotone where the biodegradation of chloroethenes from aged-pools of perchloroethene is favored. A field site was selected where an aged pool(More)
Methane cold seep systems typically exhibit extensive buildups of authigenic carbonate minerals, resulting from local increases in alkalinity driven by methane oxidation. Here, we demonstrate that modern seep authigenic carbonates exhibit anomalously low clumped isotope values (Δ47), as much as ∼0.2‰ lower than expected values. In modern seeps, this range(More)
