14 Spaulding, Russel DaleThe use of subject matter experts to assess the intervention effectiveness of health and safety risk management systems in a cohort of United States minesIn the United States mining industry, fatality statistics from 2004 to 2015 have revealed that the reduction of mining fatalities has become stagnant. To improve safety beyond the levels obtained, safety and health risk management systems (SHRMSs) are being investigated by industry and academia. In ...Occupational health; Mining engineering; Systems science2017
15 Nielsen, Gregory BarryRegional correlation of diagenetic coloration facies and analysis of iron oxide cementation processes, Jurassic Navajo Sandstone, southwestern UtahThe effects of iron chemistry dominate the visual landscape of southwestern Utah, producing not only the well-known red rock scenery, but also a broad variety of other colorful features.
