10 Archaeological Potential of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National MonumentExecutive proclamation 9682 reduces the size of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (GSENM), removing protections for at least 2,000 known archaeological sites and an unknown number of undiscovered cultural properties. Because only 10% of the GSENM's 1.9 million acres has been inventorie...Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument; Anthropology-Research2018
11 Femtosecond dynamics of quasi-particles in YBa2Cu3O7-δ superconductor filmsWe have studied the transient electronic response of YBa2Cu307-δ epitaxialy grown H T c superconductor thin films in the femtosecond time domain, using transient photoinduced reflectivity (AR) with 60 fsec time resolution. For temperatures T>Tc only a bolometric signal was observed with ARrO. For ...Femtosecond dynamics; YBa2Cu3O7-8; Transient electronic response; Transient optical response1991-03
12 Noncyanide leaching of an auriferous pyrite ore from EcuadorGold leaching of an auriferous pyrite ore from the Portovelo deposit in Ecuador indicates that noncyanide leaching systems, such as thiocyanate and thiourea, are not as effective as the traditional cyanide system. For example, whereas approximately 95% of the gold can be leached from the ore with cy...Gold leaching; Refractory ores; Thiocyanate; Thiourea2000
13 Acquiring minds want to know: CAUSEThis year I went to CAUSE in Orlando FL, December 3-5, for the first time to see how it differed from EDUCOM (at the CAUSE meeting the two organizations voted to merge next year). The content seemed similar and some of the same attendees and vendors were there. Typical topics covered campus informat...Education; Technology; CAUSE; Libraries1998
14 Charge transfer complexes of 2,4,6-tricyano-s-triazine with tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) and N,N,N' ,N'-tetramethyl-p-phenylenediamine (TMPD)Reaction of 2,4,6-tricyano-s-triazine (TCT) with tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) and N,N,N',N'-tetramethylp-phenylenediamine (TMPD) leads to 1 : 1 charge transfer complexes.

15 Acquiring minds want to know: acquisitions and new technologyAn Acquiring Minds Want to Know column: "Acquisitions as a function faces two major challenges. One is the general lack of an automated system that manages complicated acquisitions processes, provides interfaces to vendors, publishers, and institutional financial departments, and gathers significant...Automated library systems; Acquisitions1994-06
16 A fast iterative method for a class of Hamilton-Jacobi equations on parallel systemsIn this paper we propose a novel computational technique, which we call the Fast Iterative Method (FIM), to solve a class of Hamilton- Jacobi (H-J) equations on massively parallel systems. The proposed method manages the list of active nodes and iteratively updates the solutions on those nodes u...Fast Iterative Method; FIM; Parallel systems2007
17 Open access: clear benefits, hidden costsOpen Access offers real benefits to society. However, the net value of those benefits cannot be determined unless its costs are computed as well.
