Biological indicators are being increasingly used to rapidly monitor changing river quality. Among these bioindicators are macroinvertebrates. A short-coming of macroinvertebrate rapid assessments is that they use higher taxa, and therefore lack taxonomic resolution and species-specific responses. One subset of invertebrate taxa is the Odonata, which as(More)
Title of Thesis: HIGH ACCELERATIONS PRODUCED THROUGH SECONDARY IMPACT AND ITS EFFECT ON RELIABILITY OF PRINTED WIRING ASSEMBLIES Stuart Taylor Douglas, Master of Science, 2010 Thesis directed by: Professor Abhijit Dasgupta Department of Mechanical Engineering The focus of this thesis is the investigation of extremely high accelerations through secondary(More)
The application of distributional modelling techniques to invertebrates has seldom been explored, primarily due to a lack in adequate distributional data for these taxa. Here, we have selected a simple modelling approach for the generation of distribution maps from a limited dataset, as a first step to the atlassing of Odonata in South Africa. The(More)
We consider the problem of incompressible, forced, nonhelical, homogeneous, and isotropic MHD turbulence with no mean magnetic field and large magnetic Prandtl number. This type of MHD turbulence is the end state of the turbulent dynamo, which generates folded fields with small-scale direction reversals. We propose a model in which saturation is achieved as(More)
We report onK-band interferometric observations of the bright, rapidly rotating star Regulus (type B7 V) made with the CHARAArray onMountWilson, California. Through a combination of interferometric and spectroscopicmeasurements, we have determined for Regulus the equatorial and polar diameters and temperatures, the rotational velocity and period, the(More)

We have measured the cosmic ray spectrum above 10(17.2) eV using the two air-fluorescence detectors of the High Resolution Fly's Eye observatory operating in monocular mode. We describe the detector, phototube, and atmospheric calibrations, as well as the analysis techniques for the two detectors. We fit the spectrum to a model consisting of galactic and(More)
We have obtained high-resolution orbital data with the CHARAArray for the bright star 12 Persei, a resolved doublelined spectroscopic binary.We describe the data reduction process, which can give precision in separation of up to 25 as along a given baseline. For this object we find a semimajor axis of a 1⁄4 53:18 0:15 mas, which is 0.3% smaller than that of(More)
The microwave cavity perturbation (MCP) technique is used to identify the transition from magnetite (Fe3O4) to the meta-stable form of maghemite (γ-Fe2O3). In this study Fe3O4 was annealed at temperatures from 60 to 300 °C to vary the oxidation. Subsequent to annealing, the complex permittivity and magnetic permeability of the iron oxide powders were(More)
