201 Exploring the use of fine resolution nested ecological niche models to identify greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus Urophasianus) habitat and connectivity potential across a diverse landscapeSuitable habitat for greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) has been greatly reduced over a relatively short ecological scale (1800s - Present). This reduction of habitat has had a negative impact on the current distribution and connectivity of the species. There has been work to map sage-g...Climate change; Habitat model; Landscape ecology; Niche model; Sagebrush; Sage-grouse2014-12
202 Expressive suppression deleteriously impacts cognitive aspects of motor outputGrowing evidence demonstrates that (a) executive functions (EF) become deleteriously affected by engagement in the emotion regulation strategy known as expressive suppression and (b) EF show considerable functional and neuroanatomical overlap with motor output.

215 Flow instabilities of Alaskan glaciersOver 300 of the largest glaciers in southern Alaska have been identified as either surge-type or pulse-type, making glaciers with flow instabilities the norm among large glaciers in that region. Consequently, the bulk of mass loss due to climate change will come from these unstable glaciers in the f...Glaciers; Climate change; Alaska2014-08
216 Flow reversal events and statistical modeling of flow dynamics of hypersaline water across a constructed causeway, Great Salt Lake, Utah, USAThe hypersaline Great Salt Lake (GSL), located in the western United States, is divided into a north arm (Gunnison Bay) and a south arm (Gilbert Bay) by a 29-km earth-filled railroad causeway completed in 1959. Flow between the two bays is restricted to an 88-m wide breach at the western end of the ...flow reversals; generalized additive model; Great Salt Lake; hydrodynamics; statistical modeling2014-08
