On 14 November 2016, northeastern South Island of New Zealand was struck by a major moment magnitude (Mw) 7.8 earthquake. Field observations, in conjunction with interferometric synthetic aperture radar, Global Positioning System, and seismology data, reveal this to be one of the most complex earthquakes ever recorded. The rupture propagated northward for(More)
The dusty challenge Obtaining reliable level measurement has traditionally been a severe challenge because cement production is such a dusty process. During homogenization, for example, silos are continuously filled and emptied, and the component materials are constantly aerated to ensure good mixing. This creates a tremendous amount of dust that makes it(More)
The SC Project is an alliance of 10 colleges and universities working together to achieve the goal of engineering a functional, 3D, bioengineered construct. Scientific progress includes computational modeling of vascular trees and experimental testing of natural and engineered constructs. Future directions of the science focus on overcoming challenges such(More)
Gas phase Raman spectroscopy can frequently be used to obtain the conformational stability of monosubstituted four-membered rings. Similar data can also be quite useful in determining the barriers to internal rotation for many molecules which contain either the CR3 or CF3 groups by observation of the torsional overtones. By utilizing far infrared spectra(More)
We show results from a network of campaign Global Positioning System (GPS) sites in the Woodlark Rift, southeastern Papua New Guinea, in a transition from seafloor spreading to continental rifting. GPS velocities indicate anticlockwise rotation (at 2–2.7 /Myr, relative to Australia) of crustal blocks north of the rift, producing 10–15 mm/yr of extension in(More)
The use of computation alongside the natural sciences is moving research forward at unprecedented rates. Computational scientists are in high demand, and the undergraduate level is a great place to begin training students for work in this area. Furthermore, studies have shown that applied programs such as computational science are attractive to students and(More)
