The barium enemas of 119 patients with colorectal cancer and 119 age-matched controls were examined for evidence of diverticula. Amongst men, 39.6% of patients with colorectal cancer had diverticulosis, compared with 50% in the control group. In the women, 39.3% of patients with colorectal cancer had diverticular disease, compared with 36% of the controls.(More)
The frictional resistance on a fault during slip controls earthquake dynamics. Friction dissipates heat during an earthquake; therefore, the fault temperature after an earthquake provides insight into the level of friction. The Japan Trench Fast Drilling Project (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 343 and 343T) installed a borehole temperature(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o The Carrizo segment of the San Andreas Fault separates rocks of the Salinian Block southwest of the fault characterized by high heat flow (~75–95 mW/m 2) and shallow seismicity (b~10 km depth), from rocks of the Franciscan Complex and Great Valley Group northeast of the fault associated with low heat flow (50–60 mW/m 2) and deeper(More)
[1] Knowledge of frictional resistance along faults is important for understanding the mechanics of earthquakes and faulting. The clearest in situ measure of fault friction potentially comes from temperature measurements in boreholes crossing fault zones within a few years of rupture. However, large temperature signals from frictional heating on faults have(More)
