  • Geiger, Cathleen A.; Müller, Hans-Reinhard; Samluk, Jesse P.; Bernstein, E. Rachel; Richter-Menge, Jacqueline A. (International Glaciological Society, 2015-10-01)
    We explore spatial aliasing of non-Gaussian distributions of sea-ice thickness. Using a heuristic model and >1000 measurements, we show how different instrument footprint sizes and shapes can cluster thickness distributions ...
  • Yu, Xuan; Graf, Thomas; Koneshloo, Mohammad; O'Neal, Michael A.; Michael, Holly A.; Yang, Jie (American Geophysical Union, 2016-08-05)
    Sea-level rise and increases in the frequency and intensity of ocean surges caused by climate change are likely to exacerbate adverse effects on low-lying coastal areas. The landward flow of water during ocean surges ...
  • Haulsee, Danielle E.; Fox, Dewayne A.; Breece, Matthew W.; Clauss, Tonya M.; Oliver, Matthew J. (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2016-02-05)
    We developed a long-term tagging method that can be used to understand species assemblages and social groupings associated with large marine fishes such as the Sand Tiger shark Carcharias taurus.We deployed internally ...

    Lakes nested in forested watersheds play an important role in mediating the concentrations and fluxes of dissolved organic matter. We compared long-term patterns of concentrations and fluxes of dissolved organic carbon ...
  • Fischel, Matthew H. H.; Fischel, Jason S.; Lafferty, Brandon J.; Sparks, Donald L. (BIOMED CENTRAL LTD, 2015-09-16)
    BACGROUND: Manganese-oxides are one of the most important minerals in soil due to their widespread distribution and high reactivity. Despite their invaluable role in cycling many redox sensitive elements, numerous ...
  • Srinivasan, Padma P.; Parajuli, Ashutosh; Price, Christopher; Wang, Liyun; Duncan, Randall L.; Kirn-Safran, Catherine B. (PLOS (Public Library of Science), 2015-05-26)
    Voltage-sensitive calcium channels (VSCC) regulate cellular calcium influx, one of the earliest responses to mechanical stimulation in osteoblasts. Here, we postulate that T-type VSCCs play an essential role in bone ...
  • Glaum, M.; Kumar, Arun (Professor); El-Badri, N.; Mohapatra, S.; Haller, E.; Park, Sunhee; Patrick, L.; Nattkemper, L.; Vo, D.; Cameron, D. F. (Cognizant Communication Corporation, 2011)
    Using current methodologies, drug delivery to small airways, terminal bronchioles, and alveoli (deep lung) is inefficient, especially to the lower lungs. Urgent lung pathologies such as acute respiratory distress ...
  • Rivera-Torres, Natalia; Banas, Kelly; Bialk, Pawel; Bloh, Kevin M.; Kmiec, Eric B. (Public Library of Science, 2017-01-04)
    CRISPR/Cas9 and single-stranded DNA oligonucleotides (ssODNs) have been used to direct the repair of a single base mutation in human genes. Here, we examine a method designed to increase the precision of RNA guided genome ...
  • Gilkey, Matthew J.; Mironenko, Alexander V.; Yang, Leerang; Vlachos, Dionisios G.; Xu, Bingjun (Wiley Online, 2016-10-14)
    Selective ring opening of cellulose-derived furanic molecules is a promising pathway for the production of industrially relevant linear oxygenates, such as 1,6-hexanediol. 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) is employed as a model ...
  • Soltani,Mohammad; Vargas-Garcia,Cesar A.; Antunes,Duarte; Singh,Abhyudai (Public Library Science, 8/18/16)
    Inside individual cells, expression of genes is inherently stochastic and manifests as cell-to-cell variability or noise in protein copy numbers. Since proteins half-lives can be comparable to the cell-cycle length, ...
