Olfaction on a chip
On-chip sensing of physical signals is now relatively straightforward, with on-chip tilt sensors and cell phone cameras now ubiquitous, but sensing of odorants has proven to be far more challenging. A general purpose, ...
Cetaceans in the Southern California Bight: behavioral, acoustical and spatio-temporal modeling
This dissertation examines the behavior, occurrence patterns, and distribution of small cetaceans in the Southern California Bight (SCB) across a variety of temporal and spatial scales in order to elucidate how they ...
CounterNet is a single-player, web-based counter-terrorism game that teaches how to identify, track, counter and thwart online terrorist activity. Part of the Global Ecco suite of online games (NPS).
It’s all rocket science: on the equivalence of development timelines for aerospace and nuclear technologies
Early in the lifecycle of a system development, systems engineers must execute trade studies to allocate resources between different research and development efforts that are developing technologies to be deployed into ...
Computational provenance in hydrologic science: a snow mapping example
(Royal Society Publishing, 2008)
Computational provenance—a record of the antecedents and processing history of digital information—is key to properly documenting computer-based scientiﬁc research. To support investigations in hydrologic science, we ...
Chemically isolating hot spots on concave nanocubes
(American Chemical Society, 2012)
We report a simple and general strategy for selectively exposing and functionalizing the sharp corners of concave nanocubes, which are the SERS hot spots for such structures. This strategy takes advantage of the unique ...
Temporal separation of two fin whale call types across the eastern North Pacific
Fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus) produce a variety of low-frequency, short-duration, frequencymodulated calls. The differences in temporal patterns between two fin whale call types are described from long-term passive ...
Airflow distortion at instrument sites on the RV Knorr
This report describes an investigation of the air flow around the RV Knorr using the Computational Fluid Dynamics software package "VECTIS" to simulate a flow of air directly over the bows of the ship. Section 2 gives a ...
Capillary force-driven, large-area alignment of multi-segmented nanowires
We report the large-area alignment of multi-segmented nanowires in nanoscale trenches facilitated by capillary forces. Electrochemically synthesized nanowires between 120 and 250 nm in length are aligned and then etched ...
