52 Jarrard, Richard D.The magnetostratigraphy of ocean drilling program leg 105 sedimentsDuring Leg 105 of the Ocean Drilling Program, a series of 11 holes was drilled at three sites along a north-south transect in Baffin Bay and the Labrador Sea. Intermittent recovery and drilling disturbance, resulting in part from the harsh weather conditions encountered, hampered magnetostratigraph...1989
53 Brown, Francis HaroldMagnetostratigraphy of the Koobi Fora Formation, Lake Turkana, KenyaThe Koobi Fora Formation, a Pliocene and Pleistocene sequence of sedimentary deposits northeast of Lake Turkana, has yielded numerous fossils and stone artifacts of early hominids.

56 Brown, Francis HaroldMethods of datingThe fossil record of primates begins in the latest Cretaceous period, so primate palaeontologists are interested in techniques of dating applicable over the past 70 million years. Fossil bones themselves are rarely datable with any precision, and these are mainly of late Pleistocene or Holocene age....1992
57 Chapman, David S.; Harris, Robert N.Mid-Latitude (30°-60° N) climatic warming inferred by combining borehole temperatures with surface air temperaturesWe construct a mid-latitude (30°-60° N) reduced temperature-depth profile from a global borehole temperature database compiled for climate reconstruction. This reduced temperature profile is interpreted in terms of past surface ground temperature change and indicates warming on the order of 1°C...Surface air temperature; Surface ground temperature; Borehole temperatures; Geothermal observations2001
58 Jarrard, Richard D.Milankovitch paleoceanographic cycles in geophysical logs from ODP Leg 105, Labrador Sea and Baffin BayOcean Drilling Program (ODP) Sites 645 and 646, in Baffin Bay and the Labrador Sea, respectively, were logged following drilling during Leg 105. Geophysical logs in ODP drill sites yield long, continuous records of sedimentary sequences and thus provide the opportunity for examining evidence of peri...1990
59 Chapman, David S.Monitoring aquifer recharge using repeated high-precision gravity measurements: a pilot study in South Weber, UtahRepeated high-precision gravity surveys were conducted over two infiltration cycles on an alluvial-fan aquifer system at the mouth of Weber Canyon in northern Utah as part of the Weber River Basin Aquifer Storage and Recovery Pilot Project (WRBASR). Gravity measurements collected before, during, an...Aquifer recharge; Gravity measurements; Infiltration ponds; Weber River Basin Aquifer Storage and Recovery Pilot Project2008
60 Fernandez, Diego P.Near-criticality in dilute binary mixtures: distribution of azulene between coexisting liquid and vapor carbon dioxideThe equilibrium distribution of dilute solutes between vapor and liquid coexisting phases of near-critical solvents exhibits a simple dependence on the solvent's liquid density which extends over a wide temperature range; however, theory predicts this dependence only as an asymptotic limit. In order...Near-critical solvents; Azulene; Binary mixtures; Dilute solutions2002
61 Zhdanov, Michael S.New approach to interpretation of airborne magnetic and electromagnetic dataWe present a new technique for underground imaging based on the idea of space-frequency filtering and downward continuation of the observed airborne magnetic and electromagnetic data. The technique includes two major methods. The first method is related to the downward analytical continuation and ...1996-01-01
62 Zhdanov, Michael S.Novel approach to the model appraisal and resolution analysis of regularized geophysical inversionThe existing techniques for appraisal of geophysical inverse images are based on calculating the model resolution and the model covariance matrices. In some applications, however, it becomes desirable to evaluate the upper bounds of the variations in the solution of the inverse problem. It is possib...Geophysical inversion; Electromagnetic modeling; Cauchy inequality; Resolution analysis; Lanczos decomposition method; SLDM; Voisey's Bay; 3-D modeling2006
63 Brown, Francis HaroldObservations on the stratigraphy and rediometric age of the omo beds, lower omo basin, southern EthiopiaDuring September and October, 1966, the author measured a stratigraphic section for a portion of the Omo Beds, as exposed north of Kalam, Ethiopia. Additional field observations were also made at the time in other parts of the lower Omo Basin. Samples were collected for analysis and for radiometric ...1969
64 Jarrard, Richard D.Origin of seismic reflectors within carbonate-rich sediments from northeastern Australian marginWe use continuous velocity records from 12 sites and continuous density records from 9 sites from Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 133 to examine both direct and indirect controls on seismic reflectors and depth-to-time conversion for the northeastern Australian margin. In these carbonate-rich sedim...1993
65 Jewell, PaulPaleoredox conditions and the origin of bedded barites along the Late Devonian North American continental marginThe most important controls of the redox state of natural waters are the flux of organic matter from the photic zone, the degree of physical mixing, and oxygen concentrations of any connecting water masses. In coastal upwelling zones, these factors can be described with a simple box model constraine...Bedded barites; Late Devonian; Continental margin; Redox state1994
66 Zhdanov, Michael S.Parameter estimation for 3-D geoelectromagnetic inverse problemsParameter estimation in geoelectromagnetics aims to obtain the most important parameters of a well-defined conductivity model of the Earth. These parameters are features of typical geological structures, such as depth and size of conductive or resistive targets, angle of dike inclination and its le...1999-01-01
