Structural Changes in United States Cotton Supply
Agricultural supply represents the quantity supplied for a given price of a commodity. The supply function is an algebraic representation that shows, in this case, how much yield and acreage output changes from variations ...
Using Genetic Algorithms to Optimize Bathymetric Surveys for Hydrodynamic Model Input
The first part of this thesis deals with studying the effect of the specified bathymetric resolution and ideal bathymetric form parameters on the output from the wave and hydrodynamic modules of Delft-3D. This thesis then ...
Amphibian and Reptile Trade in Texas: Current Status and Trends
The non-game wildlife trade poses a risk to our natural landscape, natural heritage, economy, and security. Specifically, the trade in non-game reptiles and amphibians exploits native populations, and is likely not sustainable ...
The Conservation of Seventeenth Century Archaeological Glass
The primary goal of the conservator is to stabilize and conserve artifacts with the best possible treatment available. Ideally, these treatments are noninvasive and reversible, and maintain the integrity of the object as ...
Development of Cochliomyia macellaria on Equine and Porcine Striated Muscle Tissue and Adult Attraction to Larval Resource
Cochliomyia macellaria (Fabricius) has great importance in forensics and is commonly utilized in estimating the period of insect activity (PIA) on a corpse due to its rapid colonization time of fresh remains, active ...
A 10Gb/s Full On-chip Bang-Bang Clock and Data Recovery System Using an Adaptive Loop Bandwidth Strategy
As demand for higher bandwidth I/O grows, the front end design of serial link becomes significant to overcome stringent timing requirements on noisy and bandwidthlimited channels. As a clock reconstructing module in a ...
A CASE STUDY ON USING GIS AS A TOOL TO ENABLE LEARNING OF SPATIAL PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITIES IN AN ONLINE ENVIRONMENT
RENR 405 GIS Environmental Problem Solving is a course offered at Texas A
Population Dynamics of Plain Chachalacas in the Lower Rio Grande Valley
The Lower Rio Grande Valley (LRGV) of Texas is an ecologically diverse region in the United States and marks the northernmost extension for many tropical species of plants and animals. Since the early 1900s, 95% of the ...
Confronting Ego Threats with Reappraisal versus Rumination
Two experiments compared the effects of two cognitive responses (i.e., rumination and cognitive reappraisal) individuals may adopt when confronted with a threat to self-regard. In Study 1, participants received negative ...
An AVO method toward direct detection of lithologies combining P-P and P-S reflection data
(Texas A&M University, 2004-09-30)
I here present a combined AVO analysis of P-P and P-S reflection data whose objective is to improve the identification of lithology by estimating the specific values of Poisson's ratio, [sigma], for each rock formation in ...
