Uranium isotopes as indicators of uranium immobilization and remobilization in contaminated aquifer settings (2018-08-27)Tracking U immobilization through U(VI) reduction and mobilization induced by U(IV) oxidation using U concentrations alone is challenging, as groundwater transport, aquifer heterogeneity, and U(VI) adsorption can complicate ...
Archives of climate variability on Kiritimati: lacustrine, aeolian and remote sensing perspectives (2018-12-06)Sedimentary archives from tropical Pacific islands, together with records of modern hydrological processes, can provide information on past changes in tropical hydroclimate and test island landscape sensitivity to changes ...
Predition of compressive strength from point-load and moisture content indices of highly anisotropic, coal-bearing strata of the Illinois Basin (1983)
(2018-07-12)Recent advances in high-resolution multibeam bathymetric imaging have revealed step-like structures interpreted as cyclic steps, or sediment waves, along the bottom of deep-sea canyons and channel levees. These bed features ...
Studying subduction zone dynamics and continental evolution in South America using data-oriented geodynamic models (2018-07-06)Among all continental plates, South America remains one of the least explored regarding its geological evolution. This continent possesses the longest subduction zone, the second highest continental plateau and tremendous ...
