  • Making Spatial Information Accessible on Touchscreens for Users who are Blind and Visually Impaired 

    Grussenmeyer, William (2017)
    Touchscreens have become a de facto standard of input for mobile devices as they most optimally use the limited input and output space that is imposed by their form factor. In recent years, people who are blind and visually ...
  • Managing and Controlling the Thermal Environment in Underground Metal Mines 

    Roghanchi, Pedram (2017)
    The main aim of this research work was to discuss the methods of identifying and control heat in underground mine environments. The research contains three main sections as follow:1. Selecting an appropriate heat stress ...
  • Manipulation of ubiquitin/SUMO pathways in human herpesviruses infection 

    Gan, J; Qiao, N; Strahan, R; Zhu, C; Liu, L; Verma, Subhash C.; Wei, F; Cai, Q (11/16/2017)
    Post-translational modification of proteins with ubiquitin/small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) molecules triggers multiple signaling pathways that are critical for many aspects of cellular physiology. Given that viruses ...
  • Mascots: the History and Role of a Figurehead 

    Holmes, Ian (2012)
    Mascots play a prominent role in American society, but where did they come from and what purpose or purposes do they serve? One may not realize it, but the mascot concept has been a part of human culture for perhaps thousands ...
  • Measurement comparisons towards improving the understanding of aerosol-cloud processing 

    Noble, Stephen R. (2017)
    Cloud processing of aerosol is an aerosol-cloud interaction that is not heavily researched but could have implications on climate. The three types of cloud processing are chemical processing, collision and coalescence ...
  • Measurement of mercury in soil gas: an aid to mineral exploration in Nevada 

    Barnes, James Irvin (University of Nevada, Reno, 1971)
    A method for determining the mercury content of soil gas has been developed and demonstrated. Additionally, resulting data shows a correlation between pronounced mercury accumulations and known copper, gold, molybdenum or ...
  • Measurement of shallow shear wave velocities at a rock site using the ReMi technique 

    Pancha, Aasha; Anderson, John G.; Louie, John N.; Pullammanappallil, Satish K. (7/1/2008)
    Shallow shear wave velocities beneath a rock site are characterized using the refraction microtremor (ReMi) technique developed by Louie [Faster, better: shear-wave velocity to 100 m depth from ReMi arrays. Bull Seism Soc ...
  • Measurements of Light-Absorbing Particles on the Glaciers in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru 

    Schmitt, C. G.; All, J. D.; Schwarz, J. P.; Arnott, W. P.; Cole, R. J.; Lapham, E.; Celestian, A. (2/12/2015)
    Glaciers in the tropical Andes have been rapidly losing mass since the 1970s. In addition to the documented increase in temperature, increases in light-absorbing particles deposited on glaciers could be contributing to the ...
