Because traditional procedures of evaluating elastic-like behaviour have yielded mixed results, the purpose of this work was to explore two methods of measuring elastic-like behavior in the power squat. The entire concentric time method was based on traditional procedures. The initial concentric time method was developed to examine elastic-like behavior for(More)
We have used time resolved spectroscopy to measure the relaxation of spin polarization in InSb/AlInSb quantum wells (QWs) as a function of temperature and mobility. The results are consistent with the D'yakonov–Perel (DP) mechanism for high mobility samples over the temperature range from 50 to 300 K. For low mobility samples at high temperature the(More)
Peatland methane (CH4) fluxes may vary between plant types; however, in mixed communities, the specific role of each species is difficult to distinguish. The goal of this study was to determine the individual and interacting effect of moss, graminoid and shrub plant functional types on CH4 dynamics of experimentally planted plots in a rewetted minerotrophic(More)
