This Science and Technology Studies Dissertation Research Improvement Grant will examine the determinants of the transactional use of websites in public locations by considering the facilitating conditions in a public ...
Collaborative Research: Landscape, Image, and Language Among Some Indigenous People of the American Southwest and Northwest Australia
Scholars from a range of disciplines long have sought to understand relationships between visual representations and linguistic categories of landscape elements. One line of inquiry has sought to address the question: Do ...
Ontogeny and Dynamics of Cnidarian-Algal Symbioses
Symbioses between cnidarians and dinoflagellates in the genus Symbiodinium are widespread in the marine environment. Their importance to reef-building corals and reef nutrient cycles is well documented, but surprisingly ...
Building ocean crust: Quantitative analyses of submarine lava channel formation and laboratory simulations
Abstract (0425073) - Gregg<br/>Submarine lava channels are a vital mechanism for lava transport, particularly at mid-ocean ridges where they play an important role in distributing lava away from the ridge axis. ...
Charge-Carrier Dynamics in Novel Photorefractive Inorganic: Organic Nanocomposites
This project focuses on the study of basic processes associated with the photorefractive effect in a novel class of inorganic nanocrystal: polymer nanocomposites. The proposed new class of materials holds promise in that ...
