Effects that Omega 3 and Omega 6 Dietary Ratios have on Cellular Stress in C. elegans
Our Western diet, which is deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and has excessive omega- 6 fatty acids, has been highly correlated with the central nervous system and metabolic disorders (Western diseases). However, it is ...
Assessing Thermal Comfort in Deep Underground MinesAssessing Thermal Comfort in Deep Underground Mines
The importance of workers maintaining relative body comfort in deep hot underground mines is of great significance. This is because productivity, health, safety and the bottom line of mine operations depend on it. Comfort ...
Detrital zircon uranium-lead geochronology and hafnium-isotope analyses of passive margin and Roberts Mountains allochthonstrata: Interpreting the Early Paleozoic tectonic evolution of western LaurentiaDetrital zircon uranium-lead geochronology and hafnium-isotope analyses of passive margin and Roberts Mountains allochthonstrata: Interpreting the Early Paleozoic tectonic evolution of western Laurentia
This dissertation investigated Neoproterozoic–Devonian units of the western Laurentian passive margin and Roberts Mountains allochthon (RMA) and determined U-Pb detrital ages and Hf isotope zircon analyses that provide new ...
A carbon-14 calibrated discrete-state compartment model of the groundwater flow system, Yucca Mountain and vicinity, Nevada-California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1991)
A carbon-14 calibrated discrete-state compartment model simulates the regional groundwater flow system in southern Nevada yielding estimates of long term average annual recharge volumes, groundwater ages, volumetric flow, ...
Streamflow and water quality effects of groundwater discharge to Steamboat Creek, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
The rate of groundwater discharge to Steamboat Creek varies with location but is greatest adjacent to Steamboat Springs, at the Huffaker Narrows, and near the Truckee River confluence. Total groundwater discharge to the ...
The geology of the Copper Basin ore deposits, Lander County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1967)
The ore deposits at Copper Basin consist principally of supergene enriched copper minerals contained in arenites of the Cambrian Harmony Formation. Hypogene metallization is thought to be coincident with Eocene quartz ...
The effect of particle size on heat of immersion of bituminous high volatile Pittsburgh seam coal
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
A Setaram C-80 heat flux calorimeter was used to measure the heat of immersion of Pittsburgh seam coal. The investigation was focused to determine the effect of the coal particle size on the heat of immersion in water, 20% ...
Geology and mineralization of the Luning (New Boston) tungsten - molybdenum prospect, Mineral County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1983)
The geology and mineralization of the Luning (New Boston) Tungsten/Molybdenum Prospect located in Mineral County, Nevada was studied. It is a distal skarn vein system containing tungsten, molybdenum, and very minor copper.
Porphyry-type gold mineralization of late Neogene age at the Zule volcanic center, Sierra County, California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1992)
The volcanic setting, alteration, geochemical characteristics, and association of gold with quartz stockwork, hydrogene iron oxides, and hypersaline fluid inclusions suggest this is a shallowly-exposed porphyry gold system.
