9 Anderson, Lawrence A.A proposed standard method of testing oil-shales for their crude oil yieldBecause so little is known regarding the oil-shales of this country and their properties, a great many delays were incurred in obtaining the information contained herein. Much preliminary work had to be done before a satisfactory study of analytical retorting of oil shales could even begin. In the...Oil-shales1920
10 Schmidt, Clinton ToddA simplified model for understanding the evolution of Cirrus cloudsDeveloping an understanding of cloud evolution is central to understanding the climate system as a whole. Stratiform cirrus layers play a significant role in the radiative interaction with the climate system.

11 Parr, Clayton JosephA study of primary sedimentary structures around the Moab anticline, Grand County, Utah (Thesis and maps)This study was undertaken to describe the structural development of the Moab salt anticline. Special emphasis was placed on a study of primary sedimentary structures in order to detect any influence the rising salt mass had on patterns of sedimentation during various phases of its growth. The study ...Geology; Utah; Grand County; Thesis and dissertation georeferencing project1965-08
12 Sarma, BiplabAccelerated kinetics and mechanism of growth of boride layers on titanium under isothermal and cyclic diffusionThe tendency of titanium (Ti) and its alloys to wear, gall and seize during high contact stresses between sliding surfaces severely limits their applications in bearings, gears etc. One way to mitigate these problems is to modify their surfaces by applying hard and wear resistant surface coatings. ...Borides; Diffusion; Kinetics; Phase; Titanium; Coatings; Boriding2011-05
13 Boonyasiriwat, ChaiwootAcoustic waveform inversion of two-dimension Gulf of Mexico dataAcoustic waveform tomography can provide a velocity model with higher accuracy than traveltime tomography because the forward modeling is based on the complete wave equation rather than the high-frequency approximation of ray tracing. Moreover, each trace contains both shallow and deep reflection...Acoustic waveform tomography; Ray-based spatial resolution; Multiscale waveform tomography2009-04
14 Stika, MilanActinide Concentration Monitoring and Extraction from Molten Fluoride and Chloride SaltsThe electrochemical properties of actinides in molten salt are of importance in the nuclear pyrochemical material processing. Specifically, the ability to perform fast (real-time) concentration monitoring in such environments is of great importance (and currently not developed).
