Instrumental tide gauge records indicate that the modern rates of sea-level rise in the Chesapeake Bay more than double the global average of 1.2-1.5 mm yr-1. The primary objective for this study is to establish a relative depositional history for the tidal marshes of the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers that will help us improve our understanding of… (More)
His research focuses on the interaction of biological and physical processes in the upper ocean and uses remote sensing and field observations. Dr. Abbott is a pioneer in the use of satellite ocean color data to study coupled physical/biological processes. He has served as member or chair on several National Academy of Science committees and panels… (More)
The EUVE Knowledge Base (KB) will be an on-line repository of the expertise of the developers and users of the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) satellite and data analysis software. It will help to address the issue of maintaining adequate support for Guest Investigators after the project has entered a purely archival stage with few or no personnel… (More)
The university traditionally has had three roles: a) student instruction, b) pure research, and c) community service.

Due to budgetary constraints and constituent expectations, HBCU faculty and… (More)
Introduction In recent years, a great deal of work has been done on distributed and parallel file systems. Although the motivations behind these two types of file systems are quite different, they share many underlying characteristics and techniques. Distributed file systems need to provide clients with efficient, usable, and scalable high-bandwidth access… (More)
