    Full Text Available El sitio Rincón del Atuel 1 (RA-1 fue uno de los primeros estudiado sistemáticamente en los inicios de la arqueología del sur de Mendoza y del que se conocía solo información proveniente de la superficie. Sobre la base de excavaciones recientes se detallan las evidencias arqueológicas del sitio. Asimismo se incorporan datos disponibles de colecciones previas. Sus ocupaciones se registran en los últimos 1500-1700 años AP y mostrarían dos momentos distintos; el más tardío desde hace unos 1000-1200 años AP y el otro desde esa fecha a unos 1500-1700 años AP. El conjunto más tardío se asocia a un suelo y mostraría características de "sitio somero" mientras que el conjunto inferior se relacionaría depositacionalmente con la planicie de inundación del río Atuel por lo que presentaría mejor resolución temporal. El registro arqueobotánico y los valores isotópicos en muestras humanas avalan una dieta mixta de maíz con otras plantas silvestres al menos para el conjunto más antiguo. La evidencia no es concordante con lo esperable para un patrón semi-sedentario o sedentario propuesto previamente para entender las ocupaciones agrícolas del área. Este registro es significativo para comprender la estructura arqueológica en valles fluviales de zonas áridas, y discutir temas como la intensificación regional y el significado de los cultígenos.Rincón del Atuel-1 is an open air archaeological site located in the current alluvial valley of the Atuel River, Mendoza Province (Argentina. The site was studied during the first stage of archaeological research in southern Mendoza. However, only the surface archaeological record was studied and no information was published about the material in stratigraphic context. Recently, excavations were carried out in order to explore issues related to the Late Holocene human occupation. The results presented here show that the site was occupied from 1500-1700 14C years BP until recently (at least ca

  3. Treatment of mine water and solid residues (RS) in San Rafael mining and milling complex

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    San Rafael Mining and Milling Complex is located in Mendoza Province, in San Rafael Department, 38 km West from San Rafael city and 240 km south from Mendoza city, capital of the province. Activities related with yellow cake production were performed from 1979 to 1999. Nowadays the mine and the plant are in stand by. At the moment technical, economic and environmental studies are being done in order to restart the activities. Different kind of residues are accumulated in the site: a) Tailing; b) Sludges; c) Low grade ores; e) Waste rock; f) Mine water; g) Solid residues (RS). In this paper methodology to treat mine water and solid residues (RS) will be informed. a) Mine water: 800.000 m3 of mine water are accumulated in different open pit. Uranium, radium and arsenic are the main ions to take into account to treat the water. Several laboratory and pilot test have been performed in order to define the treatment of the water, according with the regulatory requirement. A methodology using anion exchange resin to fix uranium and precipitation using barium chloride and iron sulfate to separate radium and arsenic has been developed. b) Solid residues (RS): these residues (precipitates) have been produced by neutralization of effluents in a nuclear purification process (TBP process). They are accumulated in drums. These residues come from Cordoba plant, a factory which produces UO2 powder. The total content of uranium in the precipitate is 14.249 kg with an average uranium concentration of 1,33%. A methodology using sulfuric acid dissolution of the precipitates and anion exchange resin to recovery the uranium has been developed. (author)

  4. Public communication on times of environmental crisis. The opening of San Rafael 's uranium complex

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: Argentina has had a lot of cultural changes in the last few years. An environmental movement has gathered and is trying to stop the opening of the Sierra Pintada uranium complex, near the city of San Rafael, in the south of Mendoza province. Since 2005, several 'groundless information' have been published in the local media about the dangers of this re-opening. These news exaggerate the properties of radon gas, claiming that it will reach San Rafael city (20 miles from the complex), rising radiological risk among the population, etc. This scene shows a 'non-real' picture of the regulatory activities that the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (ARN), a government agency that regulates nuclear facilities in Argentina, is really and systematically accomplishing. In this situation, the board of Directors of ARN decided to entrust a full analysis of the environmental issue in the area. The Office of Press and Communication implemented a local communication plan, using a Strategic and Systemic tool kit. The period to be analyzed is from second semester 2005 to February 2007. A little bit of history: the San Rafael Complex started in September 20 of 1979. It belongs to the National Commission of Atomic Energy (CNEA), a government agency. Until its temporary suspension in 1995 for international market reasons (uranium price was U$S 10 / pound), almost 2 million tons of uranium were processed. Besides its temporary suspension, the ARN has been constantly monitoring this particular former complex. In the year 2001, CNEA notices that the uranium price starts to rise and entrust National Technology University, Avellaneda Branch, to accomplish an Environmental Impact Report, according to the argentine law 25.585. Due especially to the rising of uranium price, (actually, the uranium price is approximately U$S 200) the national government determined to restart the extraction of the mineral again. By the year 2004, with the results of the Environmental Impact report, CNEA

    The San Rafael Swell project area in east-central Utah is approximately 3,000 sq mi and includes the San Rafael Swell anticline and the northern part of the Waterpocket Fold monocline at Capitol Reef. Rocks in the area are predominantly sedimentary rocks of Pennsylvanian through Cretaceous age. Important deposits of uranium in the project area are restricted to two formations, the Chinle (Triassic) and Morrison (Jurassic) Formations. A third formation, the White Rim Sandstone (Permian), was also studied because of reported exploration activity. The White Rim Sandstone is considered generally unfavorable on the basis of lithologic characteristics, distance from a possible source of uranium, lack of apparent mineralization, and the scarcity of anomalies on gamma-ray logs or in rock, water, and stream-sediment samples. The lower Chinle from the Moss Back Member down to the base of the formation is favorable because it is a known producer. New areas for exploration are all subsurface. Both Salt Wash and Brushy Basin Members of the Morrison Formation are favorable. The Salt Wash Member is favorable because it is a known producer. The Brushy Basin Member is favorable as a low-grade resource.

    1995-07-01

    Surveys of the intertidal fauna and flora, the plankton, fish, birds and marine mammals of the Laguna San Rafael were carried out by a Raleigh International Expedition in January-February 1993. The Laguna is dominated by the effects of scouring, low temperature and low salinity produced by the calving, tide-water San Rafael glacier that discharges into the Laguna. The fauna and flora are simple and largely limited to a small sector of the Laguna, relatively unaffected by ice. There is a predominance of herbivorous fish, ducks, geese and swans, feeding mainly on macroalgae. Penguins, cormorants, sea lions and porpoises make up the top predators. The strandline is influenced by very heavy rainfall and supports a fauna of freshwater and terrestrial molluscs and earthworms, fed upon by birds and frogs. Large numbers of mussels are present in the north-eastern sector of the Laguna, but many are found in poor condition, high on the shore. It is suggested that poor condition and mortality are caused by large calving waves that dislodge mussels. Such waves are caused by occasional loss of massive quantities of ice from the glacier.

    Data about the nature and timing of Holocene events from the Southern Hemisphere, especially in southern South America, are required to provide insight into the extent and nature of past climate change in a region where land-based records are restricted. Here we present the first use of single grain Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating of a moraine sequence recording glacial advance along the western side of the Patagonian Icefields. Dates from the Tempanos moraines at Laguna San Rafael (LSR) show that the San Rafael Glacier (SRG) advanced to maximum Holocene positions during the period 9.3 to 9.7 ka and at 5.7 ka. Outwash lying beneath the moraine in its northern portion, dated to 7.7 ka, indicates that the glacier front was also advanced at this time. Since these advances span both the regional early Holocene warm-dry phase (11.5 ka to 7.8 ka) and the subsequent cooling and rise in precipitation in the mid-late Holocene (since 6.6 ka) we infer that the advances of the SRG are not simply climate-driven, but that the glacier has also probably responded strongly to non-climatic stimuli such as internal ice dynamics and the transition between calving and non-calving. Many westwards-flowing glaciers in Patagonia were probably calving during much of the Late Pleistocene and Holocene, so we conclude that establishing robust glacial chronologies where climatic and non-climatic factors cannot be distinguished is likely to remain a challenge.

Los resultados sugieren una distancia muy corta entre las ciudades en las cuales las tasas han aumentado y aquellas en las que han disminuido. La diferencia más significativa es que en Venado Tuerto se encontró una mayor fragilidad en las instituciones públicas, por la falta de articulación entre las mismas. En tanto en San Rafael, los actores entrevistados atribuyen el bajo nivel de conflictividad a una red de prevención de violencias en la cual se coordinan agencias provinciales y municipales. Sin tratarse, ni Venado Tuerto, ni San Rafael, de ciudades violentas en los niveles latinoamericanos más truculentos, ambas muestran resultados diferentes que apuntan directamente a la posibilidad de juntar a las instituciones en un entramado de conversaciones, acuerdos y políticas en conjunto.This article presents the results of a comparative study of two Argentinian cities, namely Venado Tuerto and San Rafael, which revealed different trends in the rates of firearm-related homicides.

  12. The Choiyoi volcanic province at 34°S-36°S (San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina): Implications for the Late Palaeozoic evolution of the southwestern margin of Gondwana

    The Choiyoi rhyolitic province of Chile and Argentina (23°S-42°S) was emplaced at the SW margin of Gondwana during the Permian. The San Rafael Massif (Mendoza, Argentina, 34°-36°S), is a key area to analyse the relative timing of Choyoi magmatism and related deformation as it bears one of the most complete and well exposed succession. Stratigraphic, structural and magmatic studies indicate that major changes of geodynamic conditions occurred during the Permian since arc-related sequences syntectonic with transpression (lower Choiyoi) were followed by transitional to intraplate, postorogenic suites coeval with transtension (upper Choiyoi). During the Early Permian, a major event of N-NNW dextral transpressional motions deformed the Carboniferous foreland basin in the San Rafael Massif. This event is attributed to the first episode of the San Rafael orogeny and can be related to oblique subduction (Az. 30°) of the Palaeo-Pacific plate. Ca. 280 Ma the inception of voluminous calc-alkaline volcanism (lower Choiyoi) syntectonic with WNW sinistral transpression of the second episode of the San Rafael orogeny, is associated with an eastward migration of the magmatic arc at this latitude. To the southeast of San Rafael, magmatism and transpression continued to migrate inland suggesting that a progressively younger, WNW, sinistral, thick skinned deformation belt broadens into the foreland and can be traced from San Rafael to Sierra de la Ventana, linking the San Rafael orogeny with the Gondwanide orogeny of the Cape Fold Belt in South Africa. This distribution of magmatism and deformation is interpreted as being the consequence of a progressive shallowing of the Palaeo-Pacific plate starting to the north of San Rafael, and culminating with a flat-slab region south of 36°S. Ca. 265 Ma the onset of predominantly felsic volcanism (upper Choiyoi) in San Rafael occurred in a Post-San Rafael extensional setting. Kinematic indicators and strain fabric analyses of San Rafael

    Full Text Available Las mineralizaciones más importantes del distrito uranífero Sierra Pintada (Bloque de San Rafael, Mendoza se asocian a las rocas pertenecientes al ciclo magmático Choiyoi. En la sección inferior de este ciclo predominan los yacimientos alojados en areniscas de origen epiclástico. En la sección superior, en cambio, se encuentran pequeñas mineralizaciones vetiformes de escasa importancia económica. Durante el emplazamiento y la acumulación de estas volcanitas y sedimentitas pérmicas prevalecieron dos regímenes de esfuerzo diferentes: transpresional (fase orogénica San Rafael y transtensional (etapa postorogénica, los cuales condicionaron los sistemas mineralizantes. Mediante un estudio de fábrica deformacional se evaluó el grado de control ejercido por las estructuras sobre la distribución de las mineralizaciones de uranio durante estas dos etapas de deformación. De esta forma, se intenta aportar nuevos conocimientos sobre la génesis de estos depósitos en la provincia magmática Choiyoi y generar nuevas guías de exploración. A través de este análisis se pudieron definir tres órdenes de magnitud en el control estructural sobre los depósitos asociados al ciclo Choiyoi inferior, cuyo desarrollo fue condicionado por la fábrica de la fase orogénica sanrafaélica. En el caso de las mineralizaciones alojadas en rocas de la sección superior del ciclo Choiyoi, el campo transtensional post-sanrafaélico ejerció un control, directo o indirecto, durante el proceso mineralizante.The main mineralizations of the Sierra Pintada uranium district, San Rafael Massif, Mendoza, are associated with the Choiyoi volcanic province. In the lower section of this magmatic cycle uranium deposits hosted by epiclastic sandstones are predominant.

    2010-11-01

    Full Text Available Glaciar San Rafael in the Northern Patagonian Icefield, with a length of 46 km and an ice area of 722 km2, is the lowest latitude tidewater outlet glacier in the world and one of the fastest and most productive glaciers in southern South America in terms of iceberg flux. In a joint project of the TU Dresden and CECS, spatio-temporal velocity fields in the region of the glacier front were determined in a campaign in austral spring of 2009. Monoscopic terrestrial image sequences were recorded with an intervallometer mode high resolution digital camera over several days. In these image sequences, a large number of glacier surface points were tracked by subpixel accuracy feature tracking techniques. Scaling and georeferencing of the trajectories obtained from image space tracking was performed via a multi-station GPS-supported photogrammetric network.

    The technique allows for tracking hundreds of glacier surface points at a measurement accuracy in the order of one decimeter and an almost arbitrarily high temporary resolution. The results show velocities of up to 16 m per day. No significant tidal signals could be observed. Our velocities are in agreement with earlier measurements from theodolite and satellite interferometry performed in 1986–1994, suggesting that the current thinning of 3.5 m/y at the front is not due to dynamic thinning but rather by enhanced melting.

    Full Text Available Las mineralizaciones más importantes del distrito uranífero Sierra Pintada (Bloque de San Rafael, Mendoza se asocian a las rocas pertenecientes al ciclo magmático Choiyoi. En la sección inferior de este ciclo predominan los yacimientos alojados en areniscas de origen epiclástico. En la sección superior, en cambio, se encuentran pequeñas mineralizaciones vetiformes de escasa importancia económica. Durante el emplazamiento y la acumulación de estas volcanitas y sedimentitas pérmicas prevalecieron dos regímenes de esfuerzo diferentes: transpresional (fase orogénica San Rafael y transtensional (etapa postorogénica, los cuales condicionaron los sistemas mineralizantes. Mediante un estudio de fábrica deformacional se evaluó el grado de control ejercido por las estructuras sobre la distribución de las mineralizaciones de uranio durante estas dos etapas de deformación. De esta forma, se intenta aportar nuevos conocimientos sobre la génesis de estos depósitos en la provincia magmática Choiyoi y generar nuevas guías de exploración. A través de este análisis se pudieron definir tres órdenes de magnitud en el control estructural sobre los depósitos asociados al ciclo Choiyoi inferior, cuyo desarrollo fue condicionado por la fábrica de la fase orogénica sanrafaélica. En el caso de las mineralizaciones alojadas en rocas de la sección superior del ciclo Choiyoi, el campo transtensional post-sanrafaélico ejerció un control, directo o indirecto, durante el proceso mineralizante.

  7. Magnetic properties of the remagnetized Middle-Ordovician limestones of the Ponón Trehué Formation (San Rafael Block, central-western Argentina): Insights into the Permian widespread Sanrafaelic overprint

    2016-10-01

    The widespread Sanrafaelic remagnetization reset most of the early Cambrian to mid-Ordovician carbonate platform of the Argentine Precordillera and the calcareous units of the San Rafael Block. We conducted a detailed rock-magnetic study on the Middle-Ordovician limestones of the Ponón Trehué Formation at both limbs of a tight anticline exposed in the San Rafael Block (Mendoza province, central-western Argentina) that are carriers of a syntectonic magnetization of Permian age. We found that the magnetic overprint in the Ponón Trehué Formation is carried by both pyrrhotite and magnetite, with goethite and subordinate haematite likely related to weathering. Hysteresis parameters, frequency dependence of magnetic susceptibility, Cisowski and modified Lowrie-Fuller tests suggest the presence of ultrafine particles of chemical origin. Demagnetization of natural remanent magnetization and of three-axis isothermal remanence confirm pyrrhotite and magnetite as important contributors to the remanence. Both minerals carry the same magnetic syntectonic component suggesting a coeval or nearly coeval remanence acquisition and therefore mineral formation. This and the results of the magnetic fabric analyses indicate an authigenic origin of the magnetic minerals during folding associated with the Sanrafaelic tectonic phase (ca. 280 Ma). Although the chemically active (oxidizing?) fluids expelled from the orogen as it developed in the early Permian is a viable explanation for the Sanrafaelic remagnetization, the role of the nearly coeval magmatism in Precordillera and the San Rafael Block remains to be properly evaluated.

  8. Effects of flooding and tamarisk removal on habitat for sensitive fish species in the San Rafael River, Utah: implications for fish habitat enhancement and future restoration efforts.

    Tamarisk removal is a widespread restoration practice on rivers in the southwestern USA, but impacts of removal on fish habitat have rarely been investigated. We examined whether tamarisk removal, in combination with a large spring flood, had the potential to improve fish habitat on the San Rafael River in southeastern Utah. We quantified habitat complexity and the distribution of wood accumulation in a tamarisk removal site (treated) and a non-removal site (untreated) in 2010, 1 year prior to a large magnitude and long-duration spring flood. We used aerial imagery to analyze river changes in the treated and untreated sites. Areas of channel movement were significantly larger in the treated site compared to the untreated site, primarily because of geomorphic characteristics of the channel, including higher sinuosity and the presence of an ephemeral tributary. However, results suggest that tamarisk removal on the outside of meander bends, where it grows directly on the channel margins, can promote increased channel movement. Prior to the flood, wood accumulations were concentrated in sections of channel where tamarisk had been removed. Pools, riffles, and backwaters occurred more frequently within 30 m upstream and downstream of wood accumulations compared to areas within 30 m of random points. Pools associated with wood accumulations were also significantly larger and deeper than those associated with random points. These results suggest that the combination of tamarisk removal and wood input can increase the potential for channel movement during spring floods thereby diversifying river habitat and improving conditions for native fish.

    Full Text Available El exceso de peso representa un problema emergente en salud pública, su prevalencia varía según zona de residencia, nivel socio-económico, edad y sexo. El objetivo del trabajo fue analizar las prevalencias de sobrepeso y obesidad en niños urbanos y rurales del Departamento de San Rafael, Mendoza, en relación a las condiciones socio-ambientales. Se realizó un estudio antropométrico transversal en 1176 individuos de 6 a 12 años. Se relevaron peso corporal, talla y pliegues subcutáneos tricipital y subescapular. El sobrepeso y la obesidad fueron determinados utilizando los criterios del International Obesity Task Force. El patrón de distribución adiposa se analizó mediante el índice Subescapular/Tricipital (IST. Un valor de IST>1 indicó centralización adiposa. El relevamiento socio-ambiental se realizó mediante encuesta autoadministrada. Los datos fueron procesados por análisis de componentes principales categórico (catACP. El catACP discriminó cuatro grupos según su condición socio-ambiental: Urbano: (Alto, Medio y Empobrecido y Rural. Las prevalencias para sobrepeso fueron de 14,4% y para obesidad de 7,6%, siendo las diferencias sexuales no significativas. La población con sobrepeso presentó en ambos sexos, valores de IST<1. En los varones obesos el IST fue >1 a partir de los 9 años y en las mujeres a los 9 y 12 años. El sobrepeso se distribuyó homogéneamente en los cuatro grupos, en tanto que la obesidad fue mayor en el grupo con características rurales. Los resultados dan cuenta del creciente aumento del sobrepeso con distribución homogénea e independiente de la condición socioeconómica. La obesidad en cambio, se concentra principalmente en la zona rural.

    Full Text Available Durante el Pérmico Temprano se desarrolló, en el margen sudoccidental del Gondwana, una extensa faja de deformación contraccional conocida con el nombre de cordón de las Gondwánides. En el extremo occidental de esta faja se instaló, durante el Carbonífero Tardío-Pérmico Temprano, una cuenca de antepaís cuyo relleno se encuentra representado por las sedimentitas de la Formación El Imperial aflorante en el bloque de San Rafael. Esta unidad presenta una sección superior que registra una inversión de las paleopendientes, la cual ha sido interpretada como la primera evidencia de la migración del frente de deformación hacia el antepaís. Se ha encarado un estudio paleomagnético de esta unidad en busca de elementos que permitan acotar la deformación en el tiempo para poder evaluar así el posible carácter diacrónico de la misma. Se presentan y discuten los primeros resultados paleomagnéticos obtenidos en sedimentitas del miembro inferior (Represa Agua del Toro y superior (Puesto La Josefa de la Formación El Imperial. Estas rocas son portadoras de magnetizaciones remanentes reversas portadas principalmente por hematita, de posible edad pérmica.

    Full Text Available Monnina salicifolia R&P (Polygalaceae se reporta como una de las tres especies más abundantes y representativas en la dispersión de semillas por aves en la zona del Embalse San Rafael La Calera. Es una especie que presenta fenofases reproductivas de forma simultánea y siendo ampliamente consumida por aves, por lo que se le podría atribuir como especie clave en la regeneración de áreas alteradas, y considerada como pionera en los procesos de sucesión. Entre septiembre de 2001 y agosto de 2002, se determinó la estacionalidad de las fases reproductivas, la producción de flores y frutos; y la disponibilidad de frutos maduros de 20 individuos entre 1,5 y 2 m de altura, mediante conteos directos de las estructuras presentes en cada individuo, quincenalmente. Así mismo, se evaluó la dispersión regional de semillas mediante la utilización de perchas artificiales, como última etapa en el ciclo de vida de Monnina salicifolia. Monnina salicifolia presentó floración y fructificación durante todo el año de muestreo y de forma continua. Sin embargo, la mayor producción floral coincidió con la estación seca, mientras que la fructificación aumentó su producción durante la estación de lluvias. Patrón observado generalmente en zonas tropicales y característico de algunas especies pioneras. Aparentemente los factores climáticos que se tuvieron en cuenta en este estudio no actuaron como señales disparadoras en la producción de flores y frutos, quizás debido a la variación poco significativa de estos durante el período de muestreo. Con respecto a la dispersión regional de semillas de Monnina salicifolia, fue constante durante los 12 meses de muestreo, lo cual pudo favorecerse por la fructificación constante de la planta. El mayor número de semillas encontradas bajo las perchas, coincidió con la época seca, época de menor disponibilidad de frutos maduros a escala local, lo cual puede deberse a que la dispersión ocurre a escala

  16. Performance evaluation of the activity meters of nuclear medicine services of the hospitals Rafael Angel Calderon, San Juan de Dios and Mexico during the period from July 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Nuclear medicine has used radioisotopes associated to drugs in order to get them to an organ of interest. The radioisotope has the quality to emit radiation, which passes through the body, after being admitted to it, and this is perceived by equipment such as a gamma camera to study the behavior of the organ under study. The radiation is a energy emission able to boot electrons from atoms and produce ions, thus the chemical composition may be altered, resulting in alterations in the cells. Conditions such as: a onreproductive of the cells, causing a tumor; or alterations in geminal cells, causing genetic alterations, which may occur in the offspring of an individual. For the above reason is that the use of radiopharmaceuticals should be as careful as possible, doing as little radiation exposure, without compromising the quality of the study, these should be applied with more important in more radiosensitive population such as children and older adults. The doses used in nuclear medicine are quantified using a device called activity meters and the proper functioning of the overexposures shall impose or low-quality studies doses outside the range of usefulness. The operation of these machines based on the quality control logs have been studied to discover if there are alterations in dosages of nuclear medicine departments of hospitals Calderon Guardia, San Juan de Dios and Mexico. Tests of zero settings, display, physical monitoring, high voltage, linearity test, stability, background radiation, precision, accuracy and consistency have been performed as quality control. This research is classified as non-experimental longitudinal quantitative. The study population was the record set and the realization of quality control tests made to the hospital activity meters above. The collection of data was performed by two steps, the first taking records concerning quality control of the different hospitals, completed tabulation, gratification and analysis of the same. The

    San Miguel volcano, also known as Chaparrastique, is one of many volcanoes along the volcanic arc in El Salvador. The volcano, located in the eastern part of the country, rises to an altitude of about 2130 meters and towers above the communities of San Miguel, El Transito, San Rafael Oriente, and San Jorge. In addition to the larger communities that surround the volcano, several smaller communities and coffee plantations are located on or around the flanks of the volcano, and the PanAmerican and coastal highways cross the lowermost northern and southern flanks of the volcano. The population density around San Miguel volcano coupled with the proximity of major transportation routes increases the risk that even small volcano-related events, like landslides or eruptions, may have significant impact on people and infrastructure. San Miguel volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in El Salvador; it has erupted at least 29 times since 1699. Historical eruptions of the volcano consisted mainly of relatively quiescent emplacement of lava flows or minor explosions that generated modest tephra falls (erupted fragments of microscopic ash to meter sized blocks that are dispersed into the atmosphere and fall to the ground). Little is known, however, about prehistoric eruptions of the volcano. Chemical analyses of prehistoric lava flows and thin tephra falls from San Miguel volcano indicate that the volcano is composed dominantly of basalt (rock having silica content

    The San Francisco Bay Area in California and its surroundings are shown in this radar image from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). On this image, smooth areas, such as the bay, lakes, roads and airport runways appear dark, while areas with buildings and trees appear bright. Downtown San Francisco is at the center and the city of Oakland is at the right across the San Francisco Bay. Some city areas, such as the South of Market district in San Francisco, appear bright due to the alignment of streets and buildings with respect to the incoming radar beam. Three of the bridges spanning the Bay are seen in this image. The Bay Bridge is in the center and extends from the city of San Francisco to Yerba Buena and Treasure Islands, and from there to Oakland. The Golden Gate Bridge is to the left and extends from San Francisco to Sausalito. The Richmond-San Rafael Bridge is in the upper right and extends from San Rafael to Richmond. Angel Island is the large island east of the Golden Gate Bridge, and lies north of the much smaller Alcatraz Island.

The San Andreas fault, on the San Francisco peninsula, is seen on the left side of the image. The fault trace is the straight feature filled with linear reservoirs, which appear dark. The Hayward fault is the straight feature on the right side of the image between the urban areas and the hillier terrain to the east.This radar image was acquired by just one of SRTM's two antennas and, consequently, does not show topographic data, but only the strength of the radar signal reflected from the ground.

  11. Connecting Realities: Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse-based Works

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is a Mexican digital artist recognized for creating large-scale theatrical interactive installations for museum and public spaces, as well as small-scale works with custom-made interfaces and digital technologies. Since 2006 this artist has created eight works that require the physiological input (pulse and heartbeats of the audience in order to be completed. Light in the pulse-based works of Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is the main vehicle that serves to visualize heartbeats outside the realm of the body, facilitating its reterritorialization and conceptualization as a malleable material that can cross the boundaries of the skin, expanding it to other three-dimensional extents in which new spatiotemporal relationships and interactions between participants and the surroundings are produced. This paper explores how these rhizomatic digital installations create a community conscience and engagement between different people in various spaces dedicated to art, while challenging our conception of reality.

Sin embargo, durante el primer año del gobierno de Rafael Reyes en 1905, fueron instituidos seis nuevos departamentos, para luego, ya en 1908, subdividir el territorio nacional en 34 secciones. El movimiento contrarreformista que siguió a la administración de Reyes en 1909 restableció la división territorial existente antes del Quinquenio, pero ciertas resistencias locales permitieron que algunos de los nuevos departamentos creados recientemente lograran subsistir. El presente artículo constituye una revisión histórica de las transformaciones que sufrió el ordenamiento territorial colombiano durante el gobierno de Reyes, todo con el fin de dar cuenta del papel que cumple el Quinquenio en la definición del mapa político administrativo del país.

    1985-02-01

    San Marino, an independent republic located in north central Italy, in 1983 had a population of 22,206 growing at an annual rate of .9%. The literacy rate is 97% and the infant mortality rate is 9.6/1000. The terrain is mountainous and the climate is moderate. According to local tradition, San Marino was founded by a Christian stonecutter in the 4th century A.D. as a refuge against religious persecution. Its recorded history began in the 9th century, and it has survived assaults on its independence by the papacy, the Malatesta lords of Rimini, Cesare Borgia, Napoleon, and Mussolini. An 1862 treaty with the newly formed Kingdom of Italy has been periodically renewed and amended. The present government is an alliance between the socialists and communists. San Marino has had its own statutes and governmental institutions since the 11th century. Legislative authority at present is vested in a 60-member unicameral parliament. Executive authority is exercised by the 11-member Congress of State, the members of which head the various administrative departments of the goverment. The posts are divided among the parties which form the coalition government. Judicial authority is partly exercised by Italian magistrates in civil and criminal cases. San Marino's policies are tied to Italy's and political organizations and labor unions active in Italy are also active in San Marino. Since World War II, there has been intense rivalry between 2 political coalitions, the Popular Alliance composed of the Christian Democratic Party and the Independent Social Democratic Party, and the Liberty Committee, coalition of the Communist Party and the Socialist Party. San Marino's gross domestic product was $137 million and its per capita income was $6290 in 1980. The principal economic activities are farming and livestock raising, along with some light manufacturing. Foreign transactions are dominated by tourism. The government derives most of its revenue from the sale of postage stamps to

En la obra de García Márquez, renace Rafael Uribe Uribe y se reconoce su vigencia histórica. El escritor nos reenseña su importancia, pero los desacraliza y los desciende del desafortunado pedestal de héroes nacionales, de ídolos de piedra, en el cual los había ubicado la historiografía tradicional.______________________ABSTRACT:This article presents the coincidences between the protagonist of the most outstanding work of Gabriel García Márquez and the president of Colombia Rafael Uribe.

    2016-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper aims to study the implications which shows the phenomenon of noise connected to the violent act in the novel Santo remedio (2006 of Rafael Courtoisie. From a literary perspective, one comes to diverse disciplines as the sociology or the art in search of the links that connect noise and violence in the contemporary society, specially in the postmodernism. Likewise, theoretical as Julia Kristeva or Michel Foucault complete a theoric map that claims of explaining the micropolitics carried out by the protagonist of the work, who ends up by infecting of abject bodies his building. The hypothesis of the paper resides in connecting the violent acts done by Paul Green, protagonist of the novel, with the constant submission of his body and mind to the noise, from every aspect.

    Full Text Available Vibrationism was an art movement developed by the painter Rafael Barradas (1890-1929 between 1917 and 1920, and this period remains one of the most recognized and recognizable of his artistic legacy. The aim of this paper is to look further into the concept of vibrationism in an attempt to reveal which elements of Barradas’ artistic vision he sought to highlight by choosing this particular word. The author begins by addressing the frequent use of the concept of vibration in European avant-garde circles and then focuses on its emergence in Barradas’ works from 1917 onwards. Finally, the meaning given to vibrationism in a text published by Torres- García is analyzed and his artistic interpretation of the style in his own paintings is discussed.El vibracionismo fue el movimiento pictórico practicado por el pintor Rafael Barradas (1890-1929 entre 1917 y 1920, y constituye una de las etapas artísticas más reconocidas y reconocibles de su trayectoría. El objetivo del artículo es el de profundizar en el concepto mismo de “vibracionismo”, para descubrir qué elementos de su propuesta plástica pretendía Barradas poner de relieve al escoger esta palabra en particular. Partiremos del frecuente uso del concepto de vibración en los medios de la vanguardia europea, para centrarnos después en su aparición en relación a la obra barradiana a partir de 1917; finalmente se analiza su significado a partir de un texto publicado por Torres-García, y se estudia su concreción plástica en la obra pictórica del autor.

  10. Pulse on pulse: modulation and signification in Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's Pulse Room

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Merete Carlson

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available This article investigates the relation between signifying processes and non-signifying material dynamism in the installation Pulse Room (2006 by Mexican Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. In Pulse Room the sense of pulse is ambiguous. Biorhythms are transmitted from the pulsing energy of the visitor's beating heart to the flashing of a fragile light bulb, thereby transforming each light bulb into a register of individual life. But at the same time the flashing light bulbs together produce a chaotically flickering light environment composed by various layers of repetitive rhythms, a vibrant and pulsating “room”. Hence, the visitor in Pulse Room is invited into a complex scenario that continuously oscillates between various aspects of signification (the light bulbs representing individual lives; the pulse itself as the symbolic “rhythm of life” and instants of pure material processuality (flickering light bulbs; polyrhythmic layers. Taking our point of departure in a discussion of Gilles Deleuze's concepts of modulation and signaletic material in relation to electronic media, we examine how the complex orchestration of pulsation between signification and material modulation produces a multilayered sense of time and space that is central to the sensory experience of Pulse Room as a whole. Pulse Room is, at the very same time, a relational subject–object intimacy and an all-encompassing immersive environment modulating continuously in real space-time.

  13. Some contributions of Rafael Lorente de Nó to neuroscience: a reminiscence.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Larriva-Sahd, Jorge

    2002-10-15

    Rafael Lorente de Nó is one of the towering neuroscientists of the 20th century. He was born in Zaragoza, Spain, in 1902. In 1920, he moved to Madrid where he became the youngest, and eventually the best known, of Ramón y Cajal's disciples. In his youth, Lorente de Nó worked with Oskar and Cécile Vogt in Germany and with Robert Bárány in Sweden. In 1934, he moved to the United States, where he first worked at the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID); in 1936, he was invited by Herbert S. Gasser to work at the Rockefeller Institute. After his formal retirement from this institute in 1972, Lorente de Nó spent 5 years at the Head and Neck Surgery Department and Brain Research Institute of the University of California at Los Angeles. He died in Tucson, Arizona, in 1990. Lorente de Nó was a gifted person: a polyglot with a remarkable memory and a versatile intellect, which together with his strong, almost belligerent character, made him a rather controversial human. The strength of his scientific contributions is evident by their current impact. Among these are: the modular (i.e., columnar) organization of the cerebral cortex, the synaptic delay, nerve volume conduction, synaptic summation, and the cybernetic (feed-back) neuron circuit. The present article provides a comment upon some of his neurohistological studies (including the cerebral isocortex, Ammon's horn, brainstem, and spinal cord), highlighted by transcripts from taped conversations with him, and illustrated by reproductions of some of his original figures.

    Ilka TREMINIO SÁNCHEZ

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available El último proceso constituyente de Ecuador dio como resultado en 2008 una nueva Carta Magna que guiaría los preceptos de la llamada «Revolución Ciudadana» iniciada por Rafael Correa desde su llegada al poder por primera vez en 2007. El nuevo texto adoptó entre sus principales cambios institucionales la reelección inmediata. Con esta cláusula dejó a un lado el criterio de alternancia y se sumó a una creciente tendencia en la región latinoamericana asociada con la flexibilización de los límites a la reelección presidencial. La nueva cláusula le ha permitido al presidente permanecer en el cargo durante los últimos ocho años y en el espacio político se discute si el presidente buscará expandir aún más sus períodos de mandato siguiendo una lógica incremental del cambio constitucional. En este escenario, el presente trabajo se propone atender la pregunta: ¿Cómo consiguió Rafael Correa adoptar la reelección presidencial en el marco de la nueva Constitución política? Todo ello se discute a la luz de la celebración del 35.º aniversario del régimen democrático ecuatoriano y de las condiciones que garantizaron el éxito de la incorporación de la reelección inmediata en la Constitución de 2008.

    The San Diego Bay Bibliography references the scientific & gray literature on the Bay up through 1994 and it is NOT current. Compiled from numerous resources (including Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute, Regional Water Quality Control Board, & local library catalogs), it is not comprehensive since so the Bay literature is elusive. In addition, there can be duplicate references varying in completeness. The San Diego Bay Bibliography is the outcome of discussion and networking within ...

Los porcentajes y distribución de los componentes orgánicos, constituidos por humus, carbón, fitolitos y colofanita, es muy variable y está regulada por la actividad del hombre y de los animales. Los componentes detríticos son los más abundantes y generalmente superan el 90%, con amplio predominio de los constituyentes livianos. Los litoclastos volcánicos, los vitroclastos y las plagioclasas cálcicas son las variedades más abundantes, acompañadas por escaso cuarzo mono y policristalino, feldespatos potásicos, fragmentos carbonáticos y minerales pesados. De acuerdo a las características de los clastos se puede inferir un aporte sedimentario local, representado por clastos volcánicos provenientes de derrumbes y su mezcla con materiales similares derivados de la erosión de los depósitos subyacentes y otro alóctono fluvial, a los que se suma el aporte piroclástico. El conjunto de sedimentos analizados puede ser incluido en el grupo de las paratufitas. La baja madurez mineralógica de los sedimentos sugiere condiciones climáticas frias y secas. Sin embargo en los niveles superficiales, la presencia de agregados micríticos originados por precipitación in situ de aguas bicarbonatadas, indica condiciones esporádicas de humedad, las que son corroboradas, al igual que las bajas temperaturas, por la presencia de fragmentos quebrados de gutolitas.

    Full Text Available Le poète et traducteur Rafael Pombo (1833-1912 constitue un exemple intéressant pour découvrir les échanges dont ont bénéficié les intellectuels colombiens du XIXe siècle. Cette époque est caractérisée par la constitution des États-Nations, par la recherche de modèles à imiter dans tous les domaines, et par une ambiance « interculturelle » propice pour établir des contacts. Pendant son séjour de dix-sept ans aux États-Unis, Pombo a mené diverses activités telles que le contact avec les poètes nord-américains William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878 et Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882. Ces contacts deviennent des éléments importants pour connaître un peu mieux l'histoire de la traduction en Colombie ainsi que l'histoire culturelle du pays.

    San Jose, capital city of Costa Rica, fills the valley between two steep mountain ranges. In this image made from data collected by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) instrument on NASA's Terra satellite, visible, shortwave, and near-infrared wavelengths of light that the sensor observed have been combined to produce a false-color version of the scene in which vegetation is red, urban areas are silvery gray, water is dark blue, and clouds are white. The image was captured on February 8, 2007. San Jose is in the center of the image. The Rio Torres winds through downtown San Jose. Cartago, the much smaller colonial capital, sits in the lower right corner, while the city of Alajuela appears across the river, northwest of San Jose. The cities' manmade surfaces contrast sharply with the lushly vegetated landscape surrounding the city. Greenhouses are common in the region, and their glass roofs may be the brilliant white spots around the outer edges the cities. The long, straight runway of the Tobias Bolanos International Airport is visible as a dark line southeast of Alajuela. The landscape around the two cities shown here is rugged. Steep mountain peaks cast dark shadows across their leeward slopes. Patches of dark red vegetation on the mountains north of San Jose may be rainforest. Coffee plantations also cover the slopes of the mountains around the city. February is the dry season in Costa Rica. During the rainy season, from about April to November, clouds usually block the satellite's view of this tropical location.

    Full Text Available Dentro de la rica y poco estudiada tradición de la literatura popular de Chile se destaca en el siglo XIX la figura del poeta y dramaturgo Juan Rafael Allende Astorga (1848-1909. En este estudio se hace una presentación del carácter carnavalesco de su obra literaria durante la década de 1880, expresada en los popularísimos volúmenes de poesía firmados como El Pequén y en su periódico de caricaturas El Padre Padilla. A contrapelo del estiramiento y britanización burguesa que caracterizó a su tiempo, Allende asoció su espíritu festivo a las luchas democráticas, y en particular al nacimiento del Partido Democrático, una nueva forma de hacer política de cara a las necesidades concretas y materiales de los trabajadores y "rotos" chilenos, a partir de 1887. El espíritu de la élite era para Allende el de una forzada e hipócrita cuaresma impuesta al pueblo común. La forma de combatir ese mundo era la aparición del Carnaval, como una exaltación de sus valores a través del banquete, el erotismo, la fiesta y la subversión. Este espíritu recorre gran parte del discurso literario de Allende, incluso permitiendo comprender, desde su mirada de un "mundo al revés", la conducta pública del Presidente José Manuel Balmaceda ante la élite de Chile.In the rich but little researched tradition of the popular literature of Chile, the figure of the poet and playwright Juan Rafael Allende Astorga (1848-1909 brigthly shines in the XIX century.

    Parsons, Tom; Bruns, Terry R.; Sliter, Ray

    2005-01-01

    The right-lateral San Gregorio and San Andreas faults meet west of the Golden Gate near San Francisco. Coincident seismic reflection and refraction profiling across the San Gregorio and San Andreas faults south of their junction shows the crust between them to have formed shallow extensional basins that are dissected by parallel strike-slip faults. We employ a regional finite element model to investigate the long-term consequences of the fault geometry. Over the course of 2-3 m.y. of slip on the San Andreas-San Gregorio fault system, elongated extensional basins are predicted to form between the two faults. An additional consequence of the fault geometry is that the San Andreas fault is expected to have migrated eastward relative to the San Gregorio fault. We thus propose a model of eastward stepping right-lateral fault formation to explain the observed multiple fault strands and depositional basins. The current manifestation of this process might be the observed transfer of slip from the San Andreas fault east to the Golden Gate fault.

    The use of prosthesis in reconstruction for the management of extensive tumor bone lesions. The study of six patients treated is performed at the Hospital Rafael Angel Calderon Guardia, who were treated for aggressive tumors in the period 2001-2006. Bony tumors are conceptualized, as well as fundamental aspects of cell biology in its development and the classification of the same. Also, relevant information is included with relation to the most frequent indications and possible treatments. In all six cases was placed the rescue prosthesis, four of them has been obtained excellent results. Limb amputation has been the only alternative until the decade of the 70 and survival rates with this treatment were 10 to 20% survival at 5 years. Today, with advances in chemotherapy and limb salvage prosthesis, patients without metastases at diagnosis have a survival of 65 to 75% at five years. The study has made it possible to simultaneously to analyze some aspects of care to these patients; such as: time of biopsy, time of diagnosis, time of initiation of chemotherapy and surgical intervention time. Through this study has concluded that when referring to a malignant tumor of bone is absolutely essential that the process of diagnosis and initiation of treatment of limb salvage surgery are addressed as soon as possible. Finally, some recommendations are raised to strengthen the treatment of malignant tumors in the Hospital Rafael Angel Calderon Guardia. (author)

The horizontal distribution of the infilling is sometimes disrupted by basaltic crumble from the roof of the shelter. The distribution of organic components is quite variable and it is controlled by the human and animal activity. They include: humus, coal, silicophytoliths and collophanite. Detrital grains are the most abundant and represent over 90 % of the whole samples analysed. They are clearly dominated by the light fraction. Volcanic lithoclasts, vitroclasts and calcic plagioclases are the more frequent constituents accompanied by scarce monocrystalline and polycrystalline quartz, potash feldspar, carbonate fragments and heavy minerals. A local sedimentary provenance is suggested on the basis of the clasts features. They are associated with roof's crumbles and the mixture with similar debris resulted from the erosion of the underlying deposits, and aloctonous fluvial and pyroclastic materials. The sediments may be included it the group of the para-tuff and the low mineralogical maturity observed suggests a dry and cold climate. However, micritic aggregates deposited on the surface are considerd to be the result of precipitation in situ of bicarbonated waters which indicates transient humid conditions. This interpretation is constrained for broken dripstones fragments.

The most common indications for cesarean section were before cesarean (35.5%, cephalo pelvic disproportion (30.6% and oligoamnios (10.8%. The most common adverse maternal outcomes were bleeding requiring transfusion (9.17%, surgical wound hematoma (3.28% and admission to ICU (1.5%. The most common adverse neonatal outcomes were APGAR <7 per minute (21.3%, transient tachypnea of the newborn (9.6% and Apgar <7 at 5 ‘(4.3%. Prenatal care (PNC was protective factor for uterine bleeding requiring transfusion (OR crude 0.54, CI 0.38 to 0.76, OR adjusted 0.53 IC 0.38 to 0.76, uterine bleeding which required hysterectomy (OR crude 0.20, CI 0.01 to 0.72, OR adjusted 0.11, IC: 0.11 to 0.72, obstetric shock (OR crude 0.06, IC: 0.00 to 0.55 ,OR adjusted 0.04, CI 0.04 to 0.38 and destination (rooming (OR 0.66, IC 0.49 to 0.90, APGAR <7 at 1 ‘( OR 0.78 IC 0.44 to 0.72, Apgar <7 at 5 ‘(adjusted OR 0.48, IC 0.28 to 0.82 and the presence of respiratory distress (OR crude 0,28 IC, 0.15 to 0.51; OR adjusted 0.53, IC 0.28 to 0.98 Conclusions: the proportion of cesarean sections performed in the CMRC (46.5% is above 15% recommended by WHO.

    Full Text Available Analisa-­se, neste artigo, a monstruosidade de o grande peixe, do Livro de Jonas e sua reaparição no romance A estranha nação de Rafael Mendes, 1983, de Moacyr Scliar. Por meio dessa análise, apontam-­se algumas características de contraste e de semelhança da função que esse monstro apresenta em cada um desses textos. Trabalha-­se a hipótese de que o peixe grande, no texto bíblico, seria marcado por uma função de constituição e manutenção da identidade, enquanto, no romance, o monstro apareceria como desconstrutor de sistemas de significação que pretendem ser imutáveis e herméticos.

    Full Text Available Antecedentes: La miastenia gravis es una enfermedad autoinmune cuya etiología aún no está claramente definida. Desde 1912 se describió mejoría del cuadro posterior a timectomía. Este procedimiento es actualmente una de las formas aceptadas para su tratamiento. El objetivo del presente trabajo fue estudiar los resultados de la timectomía para el tratamiento de la miastenia gravis en el Hospital Rafael Angel Calderón Guardia. Materiales y Métodos: Estudio retrospectivo, basado en la revisión de los expedientes de 24 pacientes, a quienes se les realizó timectomía como parte de su tratamiento de miastenia gravis entre enero de 1992 y mayo de 1999, en el Hospital Dr. Rafael Angel Calderón Guardia. Resultados: Se encontró que un 75% de los pacientes presentaron una franca mejoría, 17% permaneció en igual condición y un 8% empeoró. No se observó diferencia en la evolución por sexo, edad o la presencia de timoma, sin embargo en los pacientes que presentaban únicamente síntomas oculares se dio una tendencia a persistir sintomáticos. Se observó que la preparación pre-operatoria del paciente con gamaglobulina y la modernización de la técnica anestésica disminuyó notablemente la necesidad de ventilación mecánica. Conclusión: La timectomía fue útil en el tratamiento del 75% de los pacientes, especialmente aquellos con no sólo ptosis palpebral y permitió disminuir la dosis de medicamentos en 12 de los 24 casos estudiados.

    2007-04-01

    Full Text Available Accostumed as we are to the struggles between Spanish Liberal and Conservative traditions, the internal tensions within the reformist field have hardly been attended to. Such is the case with the controversy around the management of intellectual exchanges with Latin America that confronted the University of Oviedo and Rafael Altamira on one side, and the JAE and Canalejas on the other, over the politics of Science promotion taken up by the latter. This articles studies that ideological debate in the 1907-1913 political context, through the analysis of unpublished sources and Altamira's texts on Latin America. The aim is to understand why the shared ideal of international projection of the Spanish science gave way to conflictive strategies

    Acostumbrados a atender a las pujas entre las tradiciones liberales y conservadoras españolas, las tensiones internas del campo reformista han pasado casi desapercibidas. Tal es el caso de la controversia acerca de la gestión del intercambio intelectual con América Latina, que enfrentara a la Universidad de Oviedo y Rafael Altamira, con la política de fomento de la ciencia de Canalejas y la JAE. Proponemos aquí recuperar este debate ideológico en el contexto político de 1907- 1913, analizando fuentes inéditas y textos americanistas de Altamira, para comprender por qué el ideal compartido de la apertura y proyección internacional de la ciencia española, dio lugar a estrategias de acción conflictivas.

Comprende una zona de alteración, con mineralización diseminada, desarrollada en rocas volcánicas pertenecientes al Ciclo Magmático Choiyoi. En sus proximidades, aflora un conjunto de vetas polimetálicas las cuales, basándose en relaciones estratigráficas, han sido genéticamente relacionadas con el pórfiro. Estudios petrográficos y microtermométricos de inclusiones fluidas llevados a cabo en muestras de las vetas permiten confirmar dicha vinculación genética y establecer la existencia de dos etapas en la evolución del sistema hidrotermal. En la primera etapa participan fluidos magmáticos de elevada salinidad (37,5-41 % en peso equivalente NaCl y temperatura (356-389°C que dan origen a la alteración potásica y a la mineralización de Cu y en la segunda etapa participan fluidos magmáticos de bajas temperaturas (176-276°C y salinidades (0,35-8,68 % en peso equivalente NaCl los cuales dan lugar a la alteración fílica.

  3. Marketing San Juan Basin gas

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Marketing natural gas produced in the San Juan Basin of New Mexico and Colorado principally involves four gas pipeline companies with significant facilities in the basin. The system capacity, transportation rates, regulatory status, and market access of each of these companies is evaluated. Because of excess gas supplies available to these pipeline companies, producers can expect improved take levels and prices by selling gas directly to end users and utilities as opposed to selling gas to the pipelines for system supply. The complexities of transporting gas today suggest that the services of an independent gas marketing company may be beneficial to smaller producers with gas supplies in the San Juan Basin

  4. Structure of microemulsions by SANS

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) has been used to determine the structure of microemulsions in the system hydrocarbon-water-sodium di-ethylhexylsulfosuccinate (AOT). SANS spectra taken in a deuterated solvent showed a perfect Guinier fit with a radius of gyration of 15A regardless of the amount of AOT from 0.1 to 5% present. By varying the proportions of deuterated and undeuterated solvent to vary the contrast between the micelles and the solvent, it is concluded that the micelles are basically monodispersed spherical aggregations of 22 AOT molecules

    Full Text Available As reflexões de Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio sobre a contraposição de personagens de “Destino” e personagens de “Caráter” incorporam-se como discurso crítico ao romance El vientre de la ballena (1997 do espanhol Javier Cercas. Conciliando o gênero policial com a ficção crítica, o romance de Cercas repensa questões vinculadas ao mundo do escritor e da literatura. Com esse propósito, vale-se da leitura feita por Ferlosio do ensaio “Destino e Caráter” (1921 de Walter Benjamin. A ambiguidade irônica do narrador de Cercas e a figura do duplo nos seus relatos são vinculados à consciência da heterogeneidade enunciativa e do reconhecimento da complexidade da situação do escritor na atualidade, colocado entre a aceitação das normas da sociedade do espetáculo na literatura e o rechaço das mesmas. Destino e Caráter também como ponto de partida para interpretar o sentido do narrar e do narrador na modernidade.

    2002-01-01

    The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection radiometer, ASTER, is an international project: the instrument was supplied by Japan's Ministry of International Trade and Industry. A joint US/Japan science team developed algorithms for science data products, and is validating instrument performance. With its 14 spectral bands, extremely high spatial resolution, and 15 meter along-track stereo capability, ASTER is the zoom lens of the Terra satellite. The primary mission goals are to characterize the Earth's surface; and to monitor dynamic events and processes that influence habitability at human scales. ASTER's monitoring and mapping capabilities are illustrated by this series of images of the San Francisco area. The visible and near infrared image reveals suspended sediment in the bays, vegetation health, and details of the urban environment. Flying over San Francisco (3.2MB) (high-res (18.3MB)), we see the downtown, and shadows of the large buildings. Past the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island, we cross San Pablo Bay and enter Suisun Bay. Turning south, we fly over the Berkeley and Oakland Hills. Large salt evaporation ponds come into view at the south end of San Francisco Bay. We turn northward, and approach San Francisco Airport. Rather than landing and ending our flight, we see this is as only the beginning of a 6 year mission to better understand the habitability of the world on which we live.

    San Miguel volcano, also known as Chaparrastique, is a basaltic volcano along the Central American Volcanic Arc (CAVA). Volcanism is induced by the convergence of the Cocos Plate underneath the Caribbean Plate, along a 1200-km arc, extending from Guatemala to Costa Rica and parallel to the Central American Trench. The volcano is located in the eastern part of El Salvador, in proximity to the large communities of San Miguel, San Rafael Oriente, and San Jorge. Approximately 70,000 residents, mostly farmers, live around the crater and the city of San Miguel, the second largest city of El Salvador, ten km from the summit, has a population of ~180,000 inhabitants. The Pan-American and Coastal highways cross the north and south flanks of the volcano.San Miguel volcano has produced modest eruptions, with at least 28 VEI 1-2 events between 1699 and 1967 (datafrom Smithsonian Institution http://www.volcano.si.edu/volcano.cfm?vn=343100). It is characterized by visible milddegassing from a summit vent and fumarole field, and by intermittent lava flows and Strombolian activity. Since the last vigorous fire fountaining of 1976, San Miguel has only experienced small steam explosions and gas emissions, minor ash fall and rock avalanches. On 29 December 2013 the volcano erupted producing an eruption that has been classified as VEI 2. While eruptions tend to be low-VEI, the presence of major routes and the dense population in the surrounding of the volcano increases the risk that weak explosions with gas and/or ash emission may pose. In this study, we present the first inventory of SO2, CO2, HCl, and HF emission rates on San Miguel volcano, and an analysis of the hazard from volcanogenic SO2 discharged before, during, and after the December 2013 eruption. SO2 was chosen as it is amongst the most critical volcanogenic pollutants, which may cause acute and chronicle disease to humans. Data were gathered by the geochemical monitoring network managed by the Ministerio de Medio Ambiente

    Full Text Available Antecedentes: La miastenia gravis es una enfermedad autoinmune cuya etiología aún no está claramente definida. Desde 1912 se describió mejoría del cuadro posterior a timectomía. Este procedimiento es actualmente una de las formas aceptadas para su tratamiento. El objetivo del presente trabajo fue estudiar los resultados de la timectomía para el tratamiento de la miastenia gravis en el Hospital Rafael Angel Calderón Guardia. Materiales y Métodos: Estudio retrospectivo, basado en la revisión de los expedientes de 24 pacientes, a quienes se les realizó timectomía como parte de su tratamiento de miastenia gravis entre enero de 1992 y mayo de 1999, en el Hospital Dr. Rafael Angel Calderón Guardia. Resultados: Se encontró que un 75% de los pacientes presentaron una franca mejoría, 17% permaneció en igual condición y un 8% empeoró. No se observó diferencia en la evolución por sexo, edad o la presencia de timoma, sin embargo en los pacientes que presentaban únicamente síntomas oculares se dio una tendencia a persistir sintomáticos. Se observó que la preparación pre-operatoria del paciente con gamaglobulina y la modernización de la técnica anestésica disminuyó notablemente la necesidad de ventilación mecánica. Conclusión: La timectomía fue útil en el tratamiento del 75% de los pacientes, especialmente aquellos con no sólo ptosis palpebral y permitió disminuir la dosis de medicamentos en 12 de los 24 casos estudiados.Background: Miastenia gravis is an autoimmune disease, its etiology has not been defined clearly.

    Full Text Available The dialogical relation that the Spanish Vanguard settled with tradition —a usual phenomenon also in Latinamerica— has given place to parceled interpretations of the art and literature of the early XXth century, and, specially, of the poetry of the so-called «Generación del 27». During the last two decades, critical approaches has shown that the alliance between the past and «the new» is far from being an obstacle that condemns the Spanish «ismos» to be seen as inauthentic ones, and therefore to be accused of not having the transformative impulse that characterized the artistic projects of the early modernized European countries. Based on the recent works that have reviewed these premises (Soria, Olmedo, Geist, Bosi, García Montero, Wilson..., the purpose of this article is to analyze the well known (and many times cited Rafael Alberti’s poem «Madrigal al billete de tranvía», with the aim to explore, in a creative text, the manifestations of a vanguardist aesthetic that re-elaborated the lyric models inherited from the tradition. In addition to this, this article aims to show that, below the hermeticism of the «neo-Gongorian» madrigal discourse, lies the brief manifesto of a poetics whose decipherment enriches the interpretations of Alberti’s works during the 20s.El diálogo que la vanguardia española entabló con la tradición —fenómeno común también a Latinoamérica— ha dado lugar a interpretaciones parceladas del arte y de la literatura del temprano siglo XX, y muy especialmente, de la poesía de la llamada Generación del 27. En las últimas dos décadas, las aproximaciones de la crítica han demostrado que la alianza entre el pasado y lo nuevo está lejos de constituir una rémora que condena a los ismos hispánicos a arrastrar un estigma de inautenticidad, acusados de carecer del impulso transformador de los programas artísticos de los países europeos tempranamente modernizados.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: El caso de Rafael Gasset, propietario y director de "El Imparcial", sirve como modelo ilustrativo del ascenso político y social protagonizado por las élites salidas del periodismo desde fines del siglo XIX. El protagonismo político asumido por Gasset en la crítica coyuntura del 98 sería inexplicable sin tener en cuenta el crédito que le confería su periódico, el diario de más influencia en la España de la Restauración. Todo partido y todo líder político necesitaban en aquellos momentos ejercer algún tipo de control e influencia sobre un gran periódico. Sin él, la jefatura y los partidos no valían nada. Por ello, el periodismo era ya, a fines del siglo XIX, uno de los medios más representativos de ascenso en la política profesional y en el liderazgo social. Las campañas periodísticas de "El imparcial" (Madrid, 1867-1933 fueron, durante décadas, decisivas en la creación de estados de opinión. Estas campañas serían el medio utilizado por Gasset para influir sobre los medios oficiales y para integrarse, de ese modo, en la élite gobernante del régimen de la Restauraciuón. Esta integración se produjo al ser nombrado ministro de Agricultura por Francisco Silvela en abril de 1900. La estrecha vinculación existente desde entonces entre los intereses políticos y periodísticos del nuevo ministro, sin embargo, habría de pagarla muy cara su órgano de información, en términos de pérdida de credibilidad y prestigio entre el público lector independiente. Palabras Clave: Restauración Española, Élites políticas, Periodismo, Opinión pública, Política de masas.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo es resultado de un análisis cuya pregunta central es ¿Cuál es la genealogía de los reglamentos en las escuelas de educación primaria en México? el objetivo es analizar la obra de Rafael Ramírez, a través de la literatura formativa de los profesores, considerada un elemento fundacional de los mandatos institucionales de la escuela primaria, ya que genera un discurso que instituye la normatividad en la escuela básica mexicana. El método utilizado es el análisis crítico del discurso de Van Dijk, los actos de habla de Searle y la perspectiva de las metáforas de la vida cotidiana de Lakoff. La hipótesis que orienta la indagación plantea que los primeros pasos de la institucionalización del control escolar estuvieron atravesados por el discurso cristiano-católico expresado en diversos interdiscursos de la época y fundamentalmente en los reglamentos escolares que comenzaron a aparecer como parte de la literatura formativa de los profesores de escuelas primarias. Dicho análisis permite concluir que esta literatura refleja gran parte del imaginario de los profesores de escuelas públicas, ya que expresa un nacionalismobasado en el imaginario de la familia nuclear cristiana, elemento clave que configuró una de las imágenes más vivas en la conformación del estado mexicano posrevolucionario.

    Full Text Available Introduction: adolescent pregnancy is considered a problem of public health. The existing care measures do not influence, in a decisive way, in the education of the adolescents, they do not bear in mind neither the familiar niche nor the social niche of poverty that the adolescents have to affront, which lead them to an active sexual life to early age. Where, personal, familiar and social risk factors participate. To overcome them is a matter of educational and economic policies that promote the sexual and reproductive rights of the woman. Objective: to characterize the social factors that are present in pregnant adolescents. Methods: qualitative study of intentional sampling, interviews and focal groups with analysis according to the theory based on pregnant adolescents that attend to the Clínica Maternidad Rafael Calvo, Cartagena, Colombia. Results: personal, familiar and social factors were observed in stories that reveal: “My family did not pay attention to me and I did not fix my limits… I had the support and love of my partner, and although I was not prepared for the pregnancy, it was something that I wanted to go out of my house”. Or in another expression: “I remained a pregnant woman because my friends had sexual relationships and they were telling me… To me, these secrets touched me”. Conclusions: it was observed that pregnant adolescents were in a context lacking in options, which favor decisions in conducts of risk. The state has the obligation and the responsibility of proposing social actions of prevention. Rev.cienc.biomed. 2013;4(2:262-269

  12. Cytological and sonographic correlation of the biopsies by fine needle aspiration (FNAB) of thyroid nodules in the Hospital San Rafael de Alajuela of July 1, 2006 to February 28, 2007

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The importance of the use of aspiration biopsy with ultrasonic-guided fine needle is recognized as screening method for diagnosis of thyroid nodules. Thyroid nodules are very common, the prevalence of palpitation has been estimated by 4% and 6% by ultrasound. The prevalence in autopsy data of patients with no history of thyroid pathology has been up to 50%. The use set of advanced imaging techniques and modified techniques of biopsy is implemented in order to increase the diagnostic security of thyroid lesions. The incidental finding of thyroid nodules or incidentalomas has soared dizzily, since the advent of ultrasound as an element in the valuation of thyroid disease and thyroid in the neck. Incidence has been reported even up to 40%. A growing number of endocrinologists are using aspiration biopsy with ultrasound guided fine needle of thyroid nodules as initial diagnostic procedure to identify discrete nodules with a direct location. The percentage of malignant nodules or that require surgery by size or symptomatology, generally, is very low, had to be established a systematic approach to reducing morbidity and mortality associated with major surgery of the neck and reduce costs. The biopsy by fine needle aspiration has been a well established diagnostic technique for preoperative evaluation of thyroid nodules, which has led a significant reduction in the number of unnecessary surgeries in most centers has been between 35-75%. This biopsy has been a specific method, sensitive and inexpensive. The sonographic guidance for biopsy by fine needle aspiration offers the following benefits: is safe and inexpensive, able to reduce costs in 25%, minimally invasive and highly effective, this guidance has increased the detection of malignancy of 14 to 39%. Among the complications that can occur is the formation of hematoma and pain, which are rare. On the other hand, the sonographic guidance is essential for biopsy nonpalpable nodules helping to ensure proper placement of the needle for a more accurate sampling. The nodule with the most striking characteristics or suggestive of malignancy can be biopsied, in patients with multiple nodules, instead of taking the largest size, namely irregular or microlobulated, marked hypoechogenicity, presence of microcalcifications and shape taller high than wide.

    2005-01-01

    San Antonio was selected as an official Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) demonstration site by National Association of County and City Officials in 2000. The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, under the leadership of Dr Fernando A. Guerra, agreed to facilitate the process. The MAPP process provided the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, the local public health authority, a defined process for community health improvement, as well as a mechanism to help bridge the gap between public health and the community. The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District organized a Core Planning Team to lead the MAPP process in April 2001. By October 2002, the Core Planning Team was expanded to a full community working group named the Alliance for Community Health in San Antonio and Bexar County (Alliance). The Alliance identified six strategic issues, which eventually became the basis of the San Antonio Community Health Improvement Plan. The strategic issues are Public Policy, Data Tracking, Healthy Lifestyles, Promoting a Sense of Community, Access to Care, and Safe Environment. San Antonio's MAPP experience has been successful in bringing together the public health system partners, and establishing public health priorities collectively. The MAPP process has resulted in the development of many new initiatives, and, most important, has opened the door to many partnership opportunities in the future. The work of the Alliance, through the MAPP process, has helped to leverage resources for public health improvement in San Antonio, and has the potential to effect positive change in public health in the future.

    Full Text Available Justificación: La oclusión trombótica de las venas cerebrales o senos durales es una causa menos frecuente de enfermedad cerebrovascular que la trombosis arterial. Sin embargo; los estudios epidemiológicos indican que esta entidad no es tan inusual como o ser pensaba previamente. Hasta donde sabemos, no hay ningún estudio publicando al respecto en la literatura nacional, siendo precisamente el motivo del presente trabajo. Objetivos: Identificar las características demográficas, clínicas y diagnósticas de los pacientes que sufrieron una trombosis de senos venosos durales. Describir los métodos terapéuticos empleados y la evolución que tuvieron estos pacientes. Materiales y métodos: Se revisaron los expedientes clínicos de 11 casos diagnosticados de trombosis de senos durales en el Hospital Dr. Rafael Ángel Calderón Guardia, en el período comprendido entre enero de 1996 a enero de 1999. Se analizaron los posibles factores de riego, formas de presentación clínica, estudios de radio imagen y tratamiento empleado. Resultados: El promedio de edad fue de 32,6 años. Un 18,2% fueron varones, mientras que el 81,8% correspondió a mujeres. Las manifestaciones más frecuentes fueron: cefalea (100%, vómito (91%, déficit motor 882%, alteración del sensorio (73%, papiledema (54,5%, crisis convulsiva (54,5% y datos de irritación meníngea (36,4%: el signo del delta vacío se documentó en 27,3% de los estudios tomográficos. El seno sagital superior fue el más frecuentemente afectado (91%. Se anticoaguló con heparina intravenosa al 54, 5% de los casos. Conclusiones: Aunque somos conscientes de las limitaciones de nuestra serie, nuestra intención ha sido llamar la atención sobre una patología vascular cerebral, que aunque no es tan frecuente como su contraparte arterial, debe tenerse en consideración por sus potenciales efectos sobre la salud del paciente. El conocimiento adecuado de esta condición es importante, debido a que a

Calderón Guardia, Costa Rica y comparar los resultados obtenidos con los observados en la población costarricense, con el fin de determinar si difieren entre sí. Materiales y métodos: Se realizó un estudio observacional analítico de corte transversal. Mediante un muestreo consecutivo se analizaron 360 historias clínicas de pacientes gestantes atendidas en HCG entre el 1 de agosto y 7 de septiembre de 2007. Se excluyó del análisis toda paciente que no perteneciera al área de atracción del HCG o que presentara de forma incompleta alguna de las variables de interés. La recolección de la información se realizó mediante una hoja precodificada diseñada con base la que se utiliza para el control prenatal en el sistema de salud nacional. Resultados: Aproximadamente una de cada 5 pacientes embarazadas que dan a luz en el HCG son inmigrantes. La mayor parte de ellas son de origen nicaragüense, relativamente jóvenes, multíparas y con controles prenatales adecuados. Además, presentan una morbilidad previa e inducida por el embarazo semejante a la encontrada en las gestantes nacionales. Si bien aproximadamente la mitad de las pacientes inmigrantes se captan de forma tardía y presentan una cantidad menor de consultas prenatales a la observada en las embarazadas costarricenses, este aspecto no parece influir en los resultados derivados de la atención de su parto ni en las características de los recién nacidos al momento de su nacimiento. Conclusión: Las características de la población inmigrante que da a luz en el Hospital no son diferentes a las encontradas en las mujeres costarricenses.

    Full Text Available The Trans Bay Cable (TBC is a ±200-kilovolt (kV, 400 MW 85-km long High Voltage Direct Current (DC buried transmission line linking Pittsburg, CA with San Francisco, CA (SF beneath the San Francisco Estuary. The TBC runs parallel to the migratory route of various marine species, including green sturgeon, Chinook salmon, and steelhead trout. In July and August 2014, an extensive series of magnetic field measurements were taken using a pair of submerged Geometrics magnetometers towed behind a survey vessel in four locations in the San Francisco estuary along profiles that cross the cable's path; these included the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (BB, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge (RSR, the Benicia-Martinez Bridge (Ben and an area in San Pablo Bay (SP in which a bridge is not present. In this paper, we apply basic formulas that ideally describe the magnetic field from a DC cable summed vectorially with the background geomagnetic field (in the absence of other sources that would perturb the ambient field to derive characteristics of the cable that are otherwise not immediately observable. Magnetic field profiles from measurements taken along 170 survey lines were inspected visually for evidence of a distinct pattern representing the presence of the cable. Many profiles were dominated by field distortions unrelated to the cable caused by bridge structures or other submerged objects, and the cable's contribution to the field was not detectable. BB, with 40 of the survey lines, did not yield usable data for these reasons. The unrelated anomalies could be up to 100 times greater than those from the cable. In total, discernible magnetic field profiles measured from 76 survey lines were regressed against the equations, representing eight days of measurement. The modeled field anomalies due to the cable (the difference between the maximum and minimum field along the survey line at the cable crossing were virtually identical to the measured values. The

    The Trans Bay Cable (TBC) is a ±200-kilovolt (kV), 400 MW 85-km long High Voltage Direct Current (DC) buried transmission line linking Pittsburg, CA with San Francisco, CA (SF) beneath the San Francisco Estuary. The TBC runs parallel to the migratory route of various marine species, including green sturgeon, Chinook salmon, and steelhead trout. In July and August 2014, an extensive series of magnetic field measurements were taken using a pair of submerged Geometrics magnetometers towed behind a survey vessel in four locations in the San Francisco estuary along profiles that cross the cable's path; these included the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (BB), the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge (RSR), the Benicia-Martinez Bridge (Ben) and an area in San Pablo Bay (SP) in which a bridge is not present. In this paper, we apply basic formulas that ideally describe the magnetic field from a DC cable summed vectorially with the background geomagnetic field (in the absence of other sources that would perturb the ambient field) to derive characteristics of the cable that are otherwise not immediately observable. Magnetic field profiles from measurements taken along 170 survey lines were inspected visually for evidence of a distinct pattern representing the presence of the cable. Many profiles were dominated by field distortions unrelated to the cable caused by bridge structures or other submerged objects, and the cable's contribution to the field was not detectable. BB, with 40 of the survey lines, did not yield usable data for these reasons. The unrelated anomalies could be up to 100 times greater than those from the cable. In total, discernible magnetic field profiles measured from 76 survey lines were regressed against the equations, representing eight days of measurement. The modeled field anomalies due to the cable (the difference between the maximum and minimum field along the survey line at the cable crossing) were virtually identical to the measured values.

    1985-08-01

    Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) has proved to be an excellent technique for the study of complex fluids. This article introduces SANS from the viewpoint of such studies. The use of SANS to determine the structures of concentrated micellar fluids is then discussed within the framework of current one-component macrofluid (OCM) models, and experimental examples are taken from several contemporary studies. Finally, the discussion is extended to magnetic fluids (ferrofluids) in which the neutron magnetic interaction plays an important experimental role. 25 refs., 11 figs., 1 tab.

    The creation and use of a vertically integrated data base, including LANDSAT data, for local planning purposes in a portion of San Bernardino County, California are described. The project illustrates that a vertically integrated approach can benefit local users, can be used to identify and rectify discrepancies in various data sources, and that the LANDSAT component can be effectively used to identify change, perform initial capability/suitability modeling, update existing data, and refine existing data in a geographic information system. Local analyses were developed which produced data of value to planners in the San Bernardino County Planning Department and the San Bernardino National Forest staff.

  5. Vertical tectonic deformation associated with the San Andreas fault zone offshore of San Francisco, California

    Ryan, H. F.; Parsons, T.; Sliter, R. W.

    2008-10-01

    A new fault map of the shelf offshore of San Francisco, California shows that faulting occurs as a distributed shear zone that involves many fault strands with the principal displacement taken up by the San Andreas fault and the eastern strand of the San Gregorio fault zone. Structures associated with the offshore faulting show compressive deformation near where the San Andreas fault goes offshore, but deformation becomes extensional several km to the north off of the Golden Gate. Our new fault map serves as the basis for a 3-D finite element model that shows that the block between the San Andreas and San Gregorio fault zone is subsiding at a long-term rate of about 0.2-0.3 mm/yr, with the maximum subsidence occurring northwest of the Golden Gate in the area of a mapped transtensional basin. Although the long-term rates of vertical displacement primarily show subsidence, the model of coseismic deformation associated with the 1906 San Francisco earthquake indicates that uplift on the order of 10-15 cm occurred in the block northeast of the San Andreas fault. Since 1906, 5-6 cm of regional subsidence has occurred in that block. One implication of our model is that the transfer of slip from the San Andreas fault to a fault 5 km to the east, the Golden Gate fault, is not required for the area offshore of San Francisco to be in extension. This has implications for both the deposition of thick Pliocene-Pleistocene sediments (the Merced Formation) observed east of the San Andreas fault, and the age of the Peninsula segment of the San Andreas fault.

    SANS data from some standard samples have been obtained using BATAN-SANS instrument in Serpong. The experiments were performed for various experimental set-ups that involve different detector positions and collimator lengths. This paper describes the BATAN-SANS instrument briefly as well as the data taken from those experiments and followed with discussion of the results concerning the performance and calibration of the instrument. The standard samples utilized in these experiments include porous silica, polystyrene-poly isoprene, silver behenate, poly ball and polystyrene-poly (ethylene-alt-propylene). Even though the results show that BATAN-SANS instrument is in good shape, but rooms for improvements are still widely open especially for the velocity selector and its control system. (author)

    Full Text Available The recovery of the districts built during the second half of the twentieth century, especially those with greater social difficulties, constitutes a sustainable alternative to the failure of continuous urban growth. It is essential to promote integral actions in order to correct both deficiencies and deterioration in residential buildings, improve the relationship of these areas with their urban environments, provide them with facilities and high quality public spaces, as well as to encourage local civil community involvement. On the basis of the experiences and tools that have been developed over the past decade in Andalusia, this paper analyzes the integral renovation of the so called San Martin de Porres district. Here we study its urban and architectural development –standing out the work of the architect Rafael de La-Hoz– as well as the social transformations of its population. From the study of the design, management and execution of its renovation the most relevant aspects are deduced with the objective of facilitating their consideration in future renovation policies.La recuperación de barriadas construidas en la segunda mitad del siglo XX, especialmente aquellas con mayores dificultades sociales, constituye una alternativa sostenible al fracaso del continuo crecimiento urbano. Es necesario promover actuaciones integrales que corrijan el deterioro y carencias de edificios residenciales, mejoren las relaciones de estos ámbitos con sus entornos urbanos, los doten de equipamientos y espacios públicos de calidad e impulsen la participación vecinal y su desarrollo social y económico. A partir de experiencias e instrumentos desarrollados en la última década en Andalucía, se analiza la rehabilitación integral de la barriada de San Martín de Porres en Córdoba.

    Full Text Available This article contributes to the history of Cuban and Colombian literary criticism at the end of the 19[th] century. It analyzes Rafael María Merchán's Estudios críticos (1886, written and published during the author's exile in Colombia, and suggests that this kind of transnational Cuban-Colombian-Spanish American corpus is positioned within, and is the result of, the negotiations between coloniality and post-coloniality in the late 19[th] century. Its findings show that the important critical legacy of Merchan - trapped between the tangles of Cuba's colonial situation and a post-colonial, post-independent Colombia - constitutes an unclaimed inheritance in the history of Spanish American (and especially Cuban and Colombian literature.

  7. Abrupt along-strike change in tectonic style: San Andreas Fault zone, San Francisco Peninsula

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zoback, Mary Lou; Jachens, Robert C.; Olson, Jean A.

    1999-05-01

    Seismicity and high-resolution aeromagnetic data are used to define an abrupt change from compressional to extensional tectonism within a 10- to 15-km-wide zone along the San Andreas fault on the San Francisco Peninsula and offshore from the Golden Gate. This 100-km-long section of the San Andreas fault includes the hypocenter of the Mw = 7.8 1906 San Francisco earthquake as well as the highest level of persistent microseismicity along that ˜470-km-long rupture. We define two distinct zones of deformation along this stretch of the fault using well-constrained relocations of all post-1969 earthquakes based a joint one-dimensional velocity/hypocenter inversion and a redetermination of focal mechanisms. The southern zone is characterized by thrust- and reverse-faulting focal mechanisms with NE trending P axes that indicate "fault-normal" compression in 7- to 10-km-wide zones of deformation on both sides of the San Andreas fault. A 1- to 2-km-wide vertical zone beneath the surface trace of the San Andreas is characterized by its almost complete lack of seismicity. The compressional deformation is consistent with the young, high topography of the Santa Cruz Mountains/Coast Ranges as the San Andreas fault makes a broad restraining left bend (˜10°) through the southernmost peninsula. A zone of seismic quiescence ˜15 km long separates this compressional zone to the south from a zone of combined normal-faulting and strike-slip-faulting focal mechanisms (including a ML = 5.3 earthquake in 1957) on the northernmost peninsula and offshore on the Golden Gate platform. Both linear pseudogravity gradients, calculated from the aeromagnetic data, and seismic reflection data indicate that the San Andreas fault makes an abrupt ˜3-km right step less than 5 km offshore in this northern zone. A similar right-stepping (dilatational) geometry is also observed for the subparallel San Gregorio fault offshore. Persistent seismicity and extensional tectonism occur within the San Andreas

  8. Chronology of eclipse "San Miao"

    2001-06-01

    The ancient book "Mozi" (5th century BC) records: "In ancient times, the San Miao tribes were in disarray. The sun rose in the evening...King Yu vanquished them. "King Yu is a prehistoric person living in 23-19th century BC. The strange phenomena "sun rose in evening" was explained as a large solar eclipse at sunset by Pang. Therefore investigations on it may lead to an important progress of Chinese chronology. After an analysis on all similar records in Chinese history, we pay main attention to the relationship of eclipse computations with parameter "c", the long term of earth's rotation rate. We have computed all the solar eclipses in that period by the way similar to that used for investigating the "double dawn" eclipse. By change parameter "c" in reasonable range (28-36 sec/cy2), we have found 11 possible results listed in a table. One figure shows the eclipse maps and relative "double dawn/dusk" areas while another one illustrates how the parameter "c" affects the result. For an exact conclusion of King Yu's chronology, we need further progress from both side: history which may limit the King Yu's period and astronomy which may limit the possible range of parameter "c".

  13. The San Andreas Fault 'Supersite' (Invited)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hudnut, K. W.

    2013-12-01

    An expanded and permanent Supersite has been proposed to the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) for the San Andreas Fault system, based upon the successful initial Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Geohazard Supersite for the Los Angeles region from 2009-2013. As justification for the comprehensive San Andreas Supersite, consider the earthquake history of California, in particular the devastating M 7.8 San Francisco earthquake of 1906, which occurred along the San Andreas Fault, as did an earthquake of similar magnitude in 1857 in southern California. Los Angeles was only a small town then, but now the risk exposure has increased for both of California's megacities. Between the San Francisco and Los Angeles urban areas lies a section of the San Andreas Fault known to creep continually, so it has relatively less earthquake hazard. It used to be thought of as capable of stopping earthquakes entering it from either direction. Transitional behavior at either end of the creeping section is known to display a full range of seismic to aseismic slip events and accompanying seismicity and strain transient events. Because the occurrence of creep events is well documented by instrumental networks such as CISN and PBO, the San Andreas Supersite can be expected to be especially effective. A good baseline level of geodetic data regarding past events and strain accumulation and release exists. Many prior publications regarding the occurrence of geophysical phenomena along the San Andreas Fault system mean that in order to make novel contributions, state-of-the-art science will be required within this Supersite region. In more recent years, the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake struck adjacent to the San Andreas Fault and caused the most damage along the western side of the San Francisco Bay Area. More recently, the concern has focused on the potential for future events along the Hayward Fault along the eastern side of San Francisco Bay. In Southern California, earthquakes

  15. Compact High Resolution SANS using very cold neutrons (VCN-SANS)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    SANS (Small Angle Neutron Scattering) is a popular method for elucidation of nano-scale structures. However science continually challenges SANS for higher performance, prompting exploration of ever-more exotic and expensive technologies. We propose a compact high resolution SANS, using very cold neutrons, magnetic focusing lens and a wide-angle spherical detector. This system will compete with modern 40 m pinhole SANS in one tenth of the length, matching minimum Q, Q-resolution and dynamic range. It will also probe dynamics using the MIEZE method. Our prototype lens (a rotating permanent-magnet sextupole), focuses a pulsed neutron beam over 3-5 nm wavelength and has measured SANS from micelles and polymer blends. (authors)

Materiales y Métodos: Se estudiaron 360 historias clínicas de pacientes embarazadas menores de 18 años que llevaron su control prenatal en la Clínica de Adolescentes del Servicio de Ginecología y Obstetricia en el 2010. Las variables incluidas en el estudio abarcaban la atención prenatal, el parto y postparto. Para la comparación de los resultados obtenidos en la presente investigación con los reportados por el CLAP se utilizó una Prueba de Conformidad para el Contraste de Hipótesis. Se estableció como el nivel de significancia a valores de Z menores o mayores de 1,96. (p Aim: To compare perinatal results of pregnant adolescents that attend the prenatal control consultation at HCG with those published by the CLAP for adolescent population in Latin America. Materials and methods: 360 medical records of pregnant patients under 18 years, that undertook prenatal control at the Adolescents’ Clinic of the Department of Obstetrics of the HCG in 2010, were studied. The variables included in the study were those related with prenatal care, childbirth and postpartum. Hypothesis Testing was used to compare the results obtained in this investigation with those reported by the CLAP. 1.96 was adopted as the critical value from Z distribution (p <0.05. Results: This study showed that maternal morbidity and mortality of adolescent patients that received attention in our hospital is lower than that reported by the CLAP. Although there was a higher percentage of some diseases such as urinary tract infections or anemia in our population, this might be due to a better case detection system rather than to an increase in disease.

    Full Text Available Storage replication is one of the back bones for network environments. While many forms of Network Attached Storage (NAS, Storage Area Networks (SAN and other forms of network storage exist, there is a need for a reliable storage replication technique between distant sites (> 1 Km. Such technology allows setting new standards and removes demerits of network failover and failback systems for virtual servers; specifically, the growing storage need for effective disaster recovery (DR planning. The purpose of this manuscript is to identify growing technologies such as IP-SAN that allow with remote storage cluster replication for virtual servers. This study (Cluster Replication provides an analysis of improving the uptime and availability of SAN. For higher levels of availability, mirrored images maintained in Active/Active Cluster mirroring can provide a system with No Single Points of Failure, which is designed to improve the overall uptime of the storage system for organizations with 7x24x365 requirements.

  19. A Case for Historic Joint Rupture of the San Andreas and San Jacinto Faults

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lozos, J.

    2015-12-01

    The ~M7.5 southern California earthquake of 8 December 1812 ruptured the San Andreas Fault from Cajon Pass to at least as far north as Pallet Creek (Biasi et al., 2002). The 1812 rupture has also been identified in trenches at Burro Flats to the south (Yule and Howland, 2001). However, the lack of a record of 1812 at Plunge Creek, between Cajon Pass and Burro Flats (McGill et al., 2002), complicates the interpretation of this event as a straightforward San Andreas rupture. Paleoseismic records of a large early 19th century rupture on the northern San Jacinto Fault (Onderdonk et al., 2013; Kendrick and Fumal, 2005) allow for alternate interpretations of the 1812 earthquake. I use dynamic rupture modeling on the San Andreas-San Jacinto junction to determine which rupture behaviors produce slip patterns consistent with observations of the 1812 event. My models implement realistic fault geometry, a realistic velocity structure, and stress orientations based on seismicity literature. Under these simple assumptions, joint rupture of the two faults is the most common behavior. My modeling rules out a San Andreas-only rupture that is consistent with the data from the 1812 earthquake, and also shows that single fault events are unable to match the average slip per event for either fault. The choice of nucleation point affects the details of rupture directivity and slip distribution, but not the first order result that multi-fault rupture is the preferred behavior. While it cannot be definitively said that joint San Andreas-San Jacinto rupture occurred in 1812, these results are consistent with paleoseismic and historic data. This has implications for the possibility of future multi-fault rupture within the San Andreas system, as well as for interpretation of other paleoseismic events in regions of complex fault interactions.

  6. A case for historic joint rupture of the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lozos, Julian C.

    2016-01-01

    The San Andreas fault is considered to be the primary plate boundary fault in southern California and the most likely fault to produce a major earthquake. I use dynamic rupture modeling to show that the San Jacinto fault is capable of rupturing along with the San Andreas in a single earthquake, and interpret these results along with existing paleoseismic data and historic damage reports to suggest that this has likely occurred in the historic past. In particular, I find that paleoseismic data and historic observations for the ~M7.5 earthquake of 8 December 1812 are best explained by a rupture that begins on the San Jacinto fault and propagates onto the San Andreas fault. This precedent carries the implications that similar joint ruptures are possible in the future and that the San Jacinto fault plays a more significant role in seismic hazard in southern California than previously considered. My work also shows how physics-based modeling can be used for interpreting paleoseismic data sets and understanding prehistoric fault behavior. PMID:27034977

    dominantly by sand- to coarse sand-sized sediment. Sandy areas also include Raccoon Strait, off Point Tiburon, and on the subtidal Alcatraz, Point Knox, and Presidio Shoals. Drab-colored silty clays are the dominant sediment observed in gravity cores from central bay. Their dominance along the length of the core suggests that silty clays have been deposited consistently over much of this subembayment for the time period covered by the recovered sediments (Woodrow and others, this report). Stratification types include weakly-defined laminae, 1-3 mm thick. Few examples of horizontal lamination in very fine sand or silt were observed. Cross lamination, including ripples, was observed in seven cores. Erosional surfaces were evident in almost every core where x-radiographs were available (they are very difficult to observe visually). Minor cut-and-fill structures also were noted in three cores and inclined strata were observed in three cores. Textural patterns in central bay indicate that silts and clays dominate the shallow water areas and margins of the bay. Sand dominates the tidal channel just east of Angel and Alcatraz Islands and to the west of the islands to the Golden Gate. The pattern of sand-sized sediment, as determined by particle-size analysis, suggests that sand movement is easterly from the west-central part of the bay. A second pattern of sand movement is to the south from the southwestern extremity of San Pablo Bay (boundary approximated by the location of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge). Age dates for central bay sediment samples were obtained by carbon-14 radiometric age dating. Age dates were determined from shell material that was interpreted to be largely in-place (not transported). Age dates subsequently were reservoir corrected and then converted to calendar years. Sediments sampled from central bay cores range in age from 330 to 4,155 years before present. Foraminiferal distribution in the San Francisco Bay estuary is fairly well

    The San Cristobal Galapagos wind power project was described. With its unique endemic flora and fauna, the Galapagos Islands were declared a world heritage site and marine reserve. The San Cristobal wind project was initiated in 1999 to reduce the environmental impacts of energy use on the island, and has been operational since 2007. Three 800 kW wind turbines have been installed in order to reduce 52 per cent of the island's diesel generation. The project's high penetration wind-diesel hybrid system included 300 kW diesel generators, a 13.2 kV utility distribution system, and six 300 kW wind turbines. The project is located outside of Galapagos Petrel flight paths and nesting areas. Turbines from a factory in Spain were used. The wind turbine foundation was constructed from concrete sand and stone mined on the island. Photographs of the installation process were included. tabs., figs.

  10. SANS Measurement of Hydrides in Uranium

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    SANS scattering is shown to be an effective method for detecting the presence of hydrogen precipitates in uranium. High purity polycrystalline samples of depleted uranium were given several hydriding treatments which included extended exposures to hydrogen gas at two different pressures at 630 C as well as a furnace anneal at 850 C followed by slow cooling in the near absence hydrogen gas. All samples exhibited neutron scattering that was in proportion to the expected levels of hydrogen content. While the scattering signal was strong, the shape of the scattering curve indicated that the scattering objects were large sized objects. Only by use of a very high angular resolution SANS technique was it possible to make estimates of the major diameter of the scattering objects. This analysis permits an estimate of the volume fraction and means size of the hydride precipitates in uranium

    An updated summary of a future large astrometric catalogue is presented, based on the two most important astrometric projects carried out by the Real Instituto y Observatorio de la Armada de San Fernando (ROA). The goal is to make a catalogue of positions and proper motions based on ROA's Cart du Ciel (CdC) and the Astrographic Catalogue (AC) San Fernando zone plates, and the HAMC2 meridian circle catalogue. The CdC and AC plates are being reduced together to provide first-epoch positions while HAMC2 will provide second-epoch ones. New techniques have been applied, that range from using a commercial flatbed scanner to the proper reduction schemes to avoid systematics from it. Only thirty plates (out of 540) remain to be processed, due to scanning problems that are being solved.

  14. Examination of spotted sand bass (Paralabrax maculatofasciatus pollutant bioaccumulation in San Diego Bay, San Diego, California

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Chad L. Loflen

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available The spotted sand bass (Paralabrax maculatofasciatus is an important recreational sport and subsistence food fish within San Diego Bay, a large industrialized harbor in San Diego, California. Despite this importance, few studies examining the species life history relative to pollutant tissue concentrations and the consumptive fishery exist. This study utilized data from three independent spotted sand bass studies from 1989 to 2002 to investigate PCB, DDT, and mercury tissue concentrations relative to spotted sand bass age and growth in San Diego Bay, with subsequent comparisons to published pollutant advisory levels and fishery regulations for recreational and subsistence consumption of the species. Subsequent analysis focused on examining temporal and spatial differences for different regions of San Diego Bay. Study results for growth confirmed previous work, finding the species to exhibit highly asymptotic growth, making tissue pollutant concentrations at initial take size difficult if not impossible to predict. This was corroborated by independent tissue concentration results for mercury, which found no relationship between fish size and pollutant bioaccumulation observed. However, a positive though highly variable relationship was observed between fish size and PCB tissue concentration. Despite these findings, a significant proportion of fish exhibited pollutant levels above recommended state recreational angler consumption advisory levels for PCBs and mercury, especially for fish above the minimum take size, making the necessity of at-size predictions less critical. Lastly, no difference in tissue concentration was found temporally or spatially within San Diego Bay.

    Salt management has been a challenge to westside farmerssince the rapid expansion of irrigated agriculture in the 1900 s. Thesoils in this area are naturally salt-affected having formed from marinesedimentary rocks rich in sea salts rendering the shallow groundwater,and drainage return flows discharging into the lower reaches of the SanJoaquin River, saline. Salinity problems are affected by the importedwater supply from Delta where the Sacramento and San Joaquin Riverscombine. Water quality objectives on salinity and boron have been inplace for decades to protect beneficial uses of the river. However it wasthe selenium-induced avian toxicity that occurred in the evaporationponds of Kesterson Reservoir (the terminal reservoir of a planned but notcompleted San Joaquin Basin Master Drain) that changed public attitudesabout agricultural drainage and initiated a steady stream ofenvironmental legislation directed at reducing non-point source pollutionof the River. Annual and monthly selenium load restrictions and salinityand boron Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) are the most recent of thesepolicy initiatives. Failure by both State and Federal water agencies toconstruct a Master Drain facility serving mostly west-side irrigatedagriculture has constrained these agencies to consider only In-Valleysolutions to ongoing drainage problems. For the Westlands subarea, whichhas no surface irrigation drainage outlet to the San Joaquin River,innovative drainage reuse systems such as the Integrated Farm DrainageManagement (IFDM) offer short- to medium-term solutions while morepermanent remedies to salt disposal are being investigated. Real-timesalinity management, which requires improved coordination of east-sidereservoir releases and west-side drainage, offers some relief toGrasslands Basin farmers and wetland managers - allowing greater salinityloading to the River than under a strict TMDL. However, currentregulation drives a policy that results in a moratorium on all

    The Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS) provides observations of tides, tidal currents, and meteorological conditions in real-time. The San Francisco Bay PORTS (SFPORTS) is a decision support system to facilitate safe and efficient maritime commerce. In addition to real-time observations, SFPORTS includes a nowcast numerical model forming a San Francisco Bay marine nowcast system. SFPORTS data and nowcast numerical model results are made available to users through the World Wide Web (WWW). A brief overview of SFPORTS is presented, from the data flow originated at instrument sensors to final results delivered to end users on the WWW. A user-friendly interface for SFPORTS has been designed and implemented. Appropriate field data analysis, nowcast procedures, design and generation of graphics for WWW display of field data and nowcast results are presented and discussed. Furthermore, SFPORTS is designed to support hazardous materials spill prevention and response, and to serve as resources to scientists studying the health of San Francisco Bay ecosystem. The success (or failure) of the SFPORTS to serve the intended user community is determined by the effectiveness of the user interface.

    High frequency (HF) radar measurements of the surface current averaged over the upper 0.5 m in San Pablo Strait were compared with current meter measurements of the subsurface current made at 9.4 m below mean lower low water (MLLW) over two 12.4-h tidal cycles. After averaging the radar and current meter data over two tidal cycles, a southerly (ebbing direction) surface current of 32 cm·s−1 was deduced from the radar measurements and a northerly (flooding direction) subsurface current of 7 cm·s−1 from the current meter measurements. This nontidal flow is maintained by freshwater discharge from the Sacramento–San Joaquin Rivers into Suisun and San Pablo Bays. The radar measurement technique provides quantitative estimates of the surface currents that previously were determined only from surface drifter studies.

  20. Space Radar Image of San Francisco, California

    Science.gov (United States)

    1994-01-01

    This is a radar image of San Francisco, California, taken on October 3,1994. The image is about 40 kilometers by 55 kilometers (25 miles by 34 miles) with north toward the upper right. Downtown San Francisco is visible in the center of the image with the city of Oakland east (to the right) across San Francisco Bay. Also visible in the image is the Golden Gate Bridge (left center) and the Bay Bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland. North of the Bay Bridge is Treasure Island. Alcatraz Island appears as a small dot northwest of Treasure Island. This image was acquired by the Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C and X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SIR-C/X-SAR) aboard the space shuttle Endeavour on orbit 56. The image is centered at 37 degrees north latitude, 122degrees west longitude. This single-frequency SIR-C image was obtained by the L-band (24 cm) radar channel, horizontally transmitted and received. Portions of the Pacific Ocean visible in this image appear very dark as do other smooth surfaces such as airport runways. Suburban areas, with the low-density housing and tree-lined streets that are typical of San Francisco, appear as lighter gray. Areas with high-rise buildings, such as those seen in the downtown areas, appear in very bright white, showing a higher density of housing and streets which run parallel to the radar flight track. Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C and X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SIR-C/X-SAR) is part of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth. The radars illuminate Earth with microwaves, allowing detailed observations at any time, regardless of weather or sunlight conditions. SIR-C/X-SAR uses three microwave wavelengths: the L-band (24 cm), C-band (6 cm) and X-band (3cm). The multi-frequency data will be used by the international scientific community to better understand the global environment and how it is changing. The SIR-C/X-SAR data, complemented by aircraft and ground studies, will give scientists clearer insights into those environmental changes

  1. Development of 40m SANS and Its Utilization Techniques

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) has been a very powerful tool to study nanoscale (1-100 nm) bulk structures in various materials such as polymer, self assembled materials, nano-porous materials, nano-magnetic materials, metal and ceramics. Understanding the importance of the SANS instrument, the 8m SANS instrument was installed at the CN beam port of HANARO in 2001. However, without having a cold neutron source, the beam intensity is fairly low and the Q-range is rather limited due to short instrument length. In July 1, 2003, therefore, the HANARO cold neutron research facility project was launched and a state of the art 40m SANS instrument was selected as top-priority instrument. The development of the 40m SANS instrument was completed as a joint project between Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and the HANARO in 2010. Here, we report the specification of a state of art 40m SANS instrument at HANARO

  2. A Study of the San Andreas Slip Rate on the San Francisco Peninsula, California

    The most recent large earthquake on the San Andreas Fault (SAF) along the San Francisco Peninsula was the great San Francisco earthquake of April 18, 1906, when a Mw= 7.8 event ruptured 435-470 km of the northern SAF. The slip rate for this segment of the SAF is incompletely known but is important for clarifying seismic hazard in this highly urbanized region. A previous study south of our site has found an average slip rate of 17±4 mm/yr for the late Holocene on the San Francisco Peninsula segment of the SAF. North of the Golden Gate, the SAF joins the San Gregorio Fault with an estimated slip rate of 6 mm/yr. A trench study north of where the two faults join has produced an average late Holocene slip rate of 24±3 mm/yr. To refine slip-rate estimates for the peninsula segment of the SAF, we excavated a trench across the fault where we located an abandoned channel between the San Andreas and Lower Crystal Springs reservoirs. This abandoned channel marks the time when a new channel cut across the SAF; the new channel has since been offset in a right-lateral sense about 20 m. The measured amount of offset and the age of the youngest fluvial sediments in the abandoned channel will yield a slip rate for the San Francisco Peninsula segment of the SAF. We excavated a trench across the abandoned channel and logged the exposed sediments. Our investigation revealed channel-fill alluvium incised and filled by probable debris flow sediments, and a wide fault zone in bedrock, west of the channel deposits. The most prominent fault is probably the strand that moved in 1906. We completed a total-station survey to more precisely measure the offset stream, and to confirm that the fault exposed in the trench aligns with a fence that is known to have been offset 2.8m during the 1906 earthquake. We interpret the debris flow sediments to represent the last phase of deposition prior to abandonment of the old channel. We collected samples for radiocarbon dating, optically stimulated

  6. "¡Y NO SE RÍEN DE ESTE LESO PORQUE ES DUEÑO DE MILLONES!": EL ASEDIO CÓMICO Y POPULAR DE JUAN RAFAEL ALLENDE A LA BURGUESÍA CHILENA DEL SIGLO XIX

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maximiliano Salinas Campos

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available La historia de las elites decimonónicas ha sido contada como la historia de un Olimpo tan elevado e inalcanzable como serio. Juan Rafael Allende logró en el mismo siglo XIX crear un mundo paralelo si no alternativo que derribó tanta sospechosa sublimidad. El gran autor satírico se hizo cargo del habla histórica de la plebe chilena que provenía en alguna medida de la Picaresca española de los siglos XVI y XVII con su anticlericalismo y su anticapitalismo visceral y carnavalesco. Prolongando este mundo al siglo XIX Allende lo convirtió en una dinamita contra la gravedad del Estado y del Mercado `en forma'. En particular, fueron atacados insignes representantes de la burguesía chilena como Eduardo Matte, Manuel José Irarrázaval, Agustín Edwards, Julio Zegers o Federico Varela. Ellos habían creado una nueva religión del dinero que Allende se apresuró a denunciar como una burda parodia del Dios cristiano. Había nacido en el país un nuevo credo, el "credo de los salitreros". El origen del pensamiento satírico de Allende tiene larguísimas raíces de las que no podemos obviar, además de la mencionada Picaresca, la tradición de la España hispano-árabe, que se rió de ricos y magnates en el mejor espíritu del Libro del Buen Amor y sus antecedentes musulmanesThe history of Chile's 19th-century elites has been narrated as an Olympian story: lofty, unreachable and grave. During the same century, writer Juan Rafael Allende managed to create a parallel, if not alternative world which demolished such suspect sublimity. The great satiric author appropriated Chile´s historic plebeian speech, somehow descended from the Spanish picaresque of the 16th and 17th centuries, adopting its visceral and carnival-like anti-clericalism and anti-capitalism. Projecting this mode into the 19th century, Allende turned it into a weapon to be used against the gravitas of the formal Market and State. In particular, his attacks were leveled against renowned

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Silica gels under study are materials intended for use as the packing sorbents in liquid chromatography (LC), namely in gel permeation chromatography (GPC). The quality of silica for LC should meet strict physical and chemical parameters. Especially in GPC is very important to know pore size and pore shape because they control the whole process of chromatographic separation. Pore size and thickness of pore wall can be measured by various methods. SANS technique is a nondestructive method providing an average information about a large number of scattering object in our case about objects (pore or wall) in silica and their shape. (author)

    Full Text Available INTRODUCCIÓN: las hemoglobinopatías son desórdenes innatos hereditarios que comprenden un grupo heterogéneo de anemias,son las enfermedades más comunes en los seres humanos afectando aproximadamente el 5% de la población mundial. Los genesanómalos de la hemoglobina se originaron en África, Asia y la cuenca mediterránea, y debido a las migraciones de este grupopoblacional se han esparcido en todo el mundo, especialmente en América Latina. En esta zona geográfica, a la que pertenece elCaribe colombiano, es notorio el predominio de la anemia de células falciformes o drepanocitosis. Este tipo de anemia se caracterizapor la presencia de hematíes en forma de hoz como consecuencia de la presencia de hemoglobina S, con manifestaciones clínicascomo anemia hemolítica y fenómenos vasooclusivos. La alteración en la estructura y función de la hemoglobina causa deficiencias enel transporte de oxígeno por parte de los eritrocitos, con el consiguiente daño tisular con lesiones infartantes que se reflejan enincapacidad parcial o total e incluso en la muerte. La prevención de las complicaciones debidas a las hemoglobinopatías se basa en laidentificación de los individuos en riesgo a través de sus antecedentes familiares o mediante programas de detección de losportadores, y en proveer la información adecuada sobre los riesgos y las posibilidades de minimizarlos. En la ciudad de Cartagena seha iniciado un estudio piloto de programa de tamizaje neonatal en el que se incluyeron más de 1000 neonatos de la E.S.E. Clínica deMaternidad Rafael Calvo de Cartagena (CMRC, en el período de enero a junio de 2010, mediante la utilización de la técnica delisoelectroenfoque.

  12. Synthetic seismicity for the San Andreas fault

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    S. N. Ward

    1994-06-01

    Full Text Available Because historical catalogs generally span only a few repetition intervals of major earthquakes, they do not provide much constraint on how regularly earthquakes recur. In order to obtain better recurrence statistics and long-term probability estimates for events M ? 6 on the San Andreas fault, we apply a seismicity model to this fault. The model is based on the concept of fault segmentation and the physics of static dislocations which allow for stress transfer between segments. Constraints are provided by geological and seismological observations of segment lengths, characteristic magnitudes and long-term slip rates. Segment parameters slightly modified from the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities allow us to reproduce observed seismicity over four orders of magnitude. The model yields quite irregular earthquake recurrence patterns. Only the largest events (M ? 7.5 are quasi-periodic; small events cluster. Both the average recurrence time and the aperiodicity are also a function of position along the fault. The model results are consistent with paleoseismic data for the San Andreas fault as well as a global set of historical and paleoseismic recurrence data. Thus irregular earthquake recurrence resulting from segment interaction is consistent with a large range of observations.

    The San Joaquin - Tulare Conjunctive Use Model (SANTUCM) was originally developed for the San Joaquin Valley Drainage Program to evaluate possible scenarios for long-term management of drainage and drainage - related problems in the western San Joaquin Valley of California. A unique aspect of this model is its coupling of a surface water delivery and reservoir operations model with a regional groundwater model. The model also performs salinity balances along the tributaries and along the main stem of the San Joaquin River to allow assessment of compliance with State Water Resources Control Board water quality objectives for the San Joaquin River. This document is a detailed description of the various subroutines, variables and parameters used in the model.

  17. Beneficial Reuse of San Ardo Produced Water

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Robert A. Liske

    2006-07-31

    This DOE funded study was performed to evaluate the potential for treatment and beneficial reuse of produced water from the San Ardo oilfield in Monterey County, CA. The potential benefits of a successful full-scale implementation of this project include improvements in oil production efficiency and additional recoverable oil reserves as well as the addition of a new reclaimed water resource. The overall project was conducted in two Phases. Phase I identified and evaluated potential end uses for the treated produced water, established treated water quality objectives, reviewed regulations related to treatment, transport, storage and use of the treated produced water, and investigated various water treatment technology options. Phase II involved the construction and operation of a small-scale water treatment pilot facility to evaluate the process's performance on produced water from the San Ardo oilfield. Cost estimates for a potential full-scale facility were also developed. Potential end uses identified for the treated water include (1) agricultural use near the oilfield, (2) use by Monterey County Water Resources Agency (MCWRA) for the Salinas Valley Water Project or Castroville Seawater Intrusion Project, (3) industrial or power plant use in King City, and (4) use for wetlands creation in the Salinas Basin. All of these uses were found to have major obstacles that prevent full-scale implementation. An additional option for potential reuse of the treated produced water was subsequently identified. That option involves using the treated produced water to recharge groundwater in the vicinity of the oil field. The recharge option may avoid the limitations that the other reuse options face. The water treatment pilot process utilized: (1) warm precipitation softening to remove hardness and silica, (2) evaporative cooling to meet downstream temperature limitations and facilitate removal of ammonia, and (3) reverse osmosis (RO) for removal of dissolved salts, boron

    The addition of 17 wells to the existing 86-well network is proposed to improve the ground-water monitoring in the Hollister and San Juan Valleys in California. The new wells were selected on the basis of well-construction data, availability, location, accessibility, use, and condition, either to replace wells that are no longer accessible or to furnish needed additional data for planning artificial recharge, preparing water-level-contour maps, and digital ground-water modeling.

    A study was conducted to determine the suitability of the San Fernando Observatory's 61 cm (24 inch) aperture vacuum solar telescope and 3 m (118 inch) focal length vacuum spectroheliograph for Stokes Polarimetry measurements. The polarization characteristics of these two instruments was measured by determining their Mueller matrices as a function of telescope orientation, field angle, wavelength, grating type, and position of the measuring beam in the telescope entrance window. In general, the polarizing and depolarizing properties are small so that inversion of the system Mueller matrix will permit the accurate measurement of Stokes profiles for vector magnetic field determination. A proposed polarimeter design based on the use of a TV camera system to simultaneously scan six different polarization components of a given line profile is described. This design, which uses no rotating optics or electronic modulators and makes efficient use of the available irradiance, promises to yield high quality vector magnetograms.

  20. San Onofre - the evolution of outage management

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    With the addition of units 2 and 3 to San Onofre nuclear station in 1983 and 1984, it became evident that a separate group was needed to manage outages. Despite early establishment of a division to handle outages, it was a difficult journey to make the changes to achieve short outages. Early organizational emphasis was on developing an error-free operating environment and work culture. This is difficult for a relatively large organization at a three-unit site. The work processes and decision styles were designed to be very deliberate with many checks and balances. The organization leadership and accountability were focused in the traditional operations, maintenance, and engineering divisions. Later, our organization emphasis shifted to achieving engineering excellence. With a sound foundation of operating and engineering excellence, our organizational focus has turned to achieving quality outages. This means accomplishing the right work in a shorter duration and having the units run until the next refueling

    Nous utilisons un Oscillateur Paramétrique Optique (OPO) pompé sous le seuil dans le but d'amplifier une image multimode transverse sans dégradation du rapport signal à bruit. Le dispositif expérimental met en œuvre un OPO de type II triplement résonant et semi-confocal pour le faisceau amplifié. L'existence d'effets quantiques lors de l'amplification multimode dans un tel dispositif a été montrée expérimentalement. Plus généralement, ceci nous a amené à étudier les propriétés quantiques transverses des faisceaux lumineux amplifiés. Une telle étude peut trouver des applications non seulement en imagerie, mais également dans le traitement quantique de l'information.

  4. Developing solar power programs : San Francisco's experience

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This keynote address discussed an array of solar programs initiated in government-owned buildings in San Francisco. The programs were strongly supported by the city's mayor,and the voting public. Known for its fog and varying microclimates, 11 monitoring stations were set up throughout the city to determine viable locations for the successful application of solar technologies. It was observed that 90 per cent of the available sunshine occurred in the central valley, whereas fog along the Pacific shore was problematic. Seven of the monitoring sites showed excellent results. Relationships with various city departments were described, as well as details of study loads, load profiles, electrical systems, roofs and the structural capabilities of the selected government buildings. There was a focus on developing good relations with the local utility. The Moscone Convention Center was selected for the program's flagship installation, a 675 kW solar project which eventually won the US EPA Green Power Award for 2004 and received high press coverage. Cost of the project was $4.2 million. 825,000 kWh solar electricity was generated, along with 4,500,000 kWh electricity saved annually from efficiency measures, resulting in a net reduction of 5,325,000 kWh. Savings on utilities bills for the center were an estimated $1,078,000. A pipeline of solar projects followed, with installations at a sewage treatment plant and a large recycling depot. A program of smaller sites included libraries, schools and health facilities. Details of plans to apply solar technology to a 500 acre redevelopment site in southeast San Francisco with an aging and inadequate electrical infrastructure were described. A model of efficient solar housing for the development was presented, with details of insulation, windows, heating ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), water heating, lighting, appliances and a 1.2 kilowatt solar system. Peak demand reductions were also presented. tabs., figs

Materiales y Métodos: Se estudiaron 360 historias clínicas de pacientes embarazadas menores de 18 años que llevaron su control prenatal en la Clínica de Adolescentes del Servicio de Ginecología y Obstetricia en el 2010. Las variables incluidas en el estudio abarcaban la atención prenatal, el parto y postparto. Para la comparación de los resultados obtenidos en la presente investigación con los reportados por el CLAP se utilizó una Prueba de Conformidad para el Contraste de Hipótesis. Se estableció como el nivel de significancia a valores de Z menores o mayores de 1,96. (p < 0.05. Resultados: El presente estudio mostró que la morbi-mortalidad materna de las pacientes adolescentes atendidas en nuestro hospital es menor a la reportada por el CLAP. Si bien, algunas patologías como las infecciones urinarias o la anemia presentaron porcentajes significativamente mayores en nuestra población. Con relación al recién nacido, no se encontraron diferencias significativas respecto al porcentaje de partos pretérmino, productos con bajo peso o muy bajo peso al nacer. El hecho de que aproximadamente el 97% de las pacientes tuvieran su parto al término o cercano a este (más de 34 semanas de gestación y el contar con una Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales podría explicar la baja mortalidad neonatal presentada en nuestras adolescentes. Conclusiones: La morbi-mortalidad materna y neonatal de las pacientes adolescentes atendidas en nuestro hospital es menor a la reportada por el CLAP para la población adolescente.

    Full Text Available Durante el período comprendido entre 1990 y 2006, 28 pacientes fueron sometidos a resección esofágica por cáncer en el Servicio de Cirugía de Tórax del Hospital Dr. Rafael Á. Calderón Guardia. La edad promedio fue de 65 años y la relación hombre mujer, de 6 a 1. El antecedente de tabaquismo se confirmó en un 80%, etilismo en un 75% y 8 pacientes eran conocidos portadores de esófago de Barret. Disfagia, dolor epigástrico y pérdida de peso fueron los síntomas más frecuentes; siendo la epigastralgia debida a otra patología digestiva coexistente, como reflujo o enfermedad péptica. Los pacientes clasificados como estadio IIb, III y IV recibieron terapia de inducción y aunque en 3 de estos no se encontró tumor residual en la pieza quirúrgica, en 2 casos quedó tumor adherido a la aorta. A 21 pacientes se les realizó esofagectomía total con ascenso gástrico y anastomosis cervical y a 7 esofagectomía parcial con ascenso gástrico al tórax en 5 y 2 esófago-yeyuno anastomosis, una intratorácica y otra abdominal. La complicación más frecuente fue la claudicación respiratoria por bronconeumonía, que se produjo en 7 pacientes y que fue mortal en 3. Dos de estos pacientes presentaron además fuga de anastomosis, una en el cuello y otra en el tórax. A largo plazo la complicación más frecuente fue estrechez de la anastomosis, que en los 7 casos se ha manejado con dilataciones. La mortalidad quirúrgica fue del 10.7% y en los 3 casos la bronconeumonía fue la causa principal. La supervivencia a 5 y 10 años fue del 31.5% y el 18%, respectivamente.

    1999-01-01

    Recently acquired high-resolution aeromagnetic data delineate offset and/or truncated magnetic rock bodies of the Franciscan Complex that define the location and structure of, and total offset across, the San Andreas fault in the San Francisco Bay region. Two distinctive magnetic anomalies caused by ultramafic rocks and metabasalts east of, and truncated at, the San Andreas fault have clear counterparts west of the fault that indicate a total right-lateral offset of only 22 km on the Peninsula segment, the active strand that ruptured in 1906. The location of the Peninsula segment is well defined magnetically on the northern peninsula where it goes offshore, and can be traced along strike an additional ~6 km to the northwest. Just offshore from Lake Merced, the inferred fault trace steps right (northeast) 3 km onto a nearly parallel strand that can be traced magnetically northwest more than 20 km as the linear northeast edge of a magnetic block bounded by the San Andreas fault, the Pilarcitos fault, and the San Gregorio-Hosgri fault zone. This right-stepping strand, the Golden Gate segment, joins the eastern mapped trace of the San Andreas fault at Bolinas Lagoon and projects back onshore to the southeast near Lake Merced. Inversion of detailed gravity data on the San Francisco Peninsula reveals a 3 km wide basin situated between the two strands of the San Andreas fault, floored by Franciscan basement and filled with Plio-Quaternary sedimentary deposits of the Merced and Colma formations. The basin, ~1 km deep at the coast, narrows and becomes thinner to the southeast along the fault over a distance of ~12 km. The length, width, and location of the basin between the two strands are consistent with a pull-apart basin formed behind the right step in the right-lateral strike-slip San Andreas fault system and currently moving southeast with the North American plate. Slight nonparallelism of the two strands bounding the basin (implying a small component of convergence

The delta of the combined Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers occupies the foreground with San Francisco Bay in the middle distance, then the Pacific Ocean. Variations in water color caused both by sediment load and by wind streaking strike the eye. Man-made features dominate this scene. The Lafayette/Concord complex is left of the bay head, Vallejo is to the right, the Berkeley/Oakland complex rims the shoreline of the main bay, and San Francisco fills the peninsula beyond. Salt-evaporation ponds contain differently-colored algae depending on salinity. The low altitude (less than 120 nautical miles) and unusually-clear air combine to provide unusually-strong green colors in this Spring scene.

    2000-01-01

    These images of the San Francisco Bay region were acquired on March 3, 2000 by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA's Terra satellite. Each covers an area 60 kilometers (37 miles) wide and 75 kilometers (47 miles) long. With its 14 spectral bands from the visible to the thermal infrared wavelength region, and its high spatial resolution of 15 to 90 meters (about 50 to 300 feet), ASTER will image the Earth for the next 6 years to map and monitor the changing surface of our planet.Upper Left: The color infrared composite uses bands in the visible and reflected infrared. Vegetation is red, urban areas are gray; sediment in the bays shows up as lighter shades of blue. Thanks to the 15 meter (50-foot) spatial resolution, shadows of the towers along the Bay Bridge can be seen.Upper right: A composite of bands in the short wave infrared displays differences in soils and rocks in the mountainous areas. Even though these regions appear entirely vegetated in the visible, enough surface shows through openings in the vegetation to allow the ground to be imaged.Lower left: This composite of multispectral thermal bands shows differences in urban materials in varying colors. Separation of materials is due to differences in thermal emission properties, analogous to colors in the visible.Lower right: This is a color coded temperature image of water temperature, derived from the thermal bands. Warm waters are in white and yellow, colder waters are blue. Suisun Bay in the upper right is fed directly from the cold Sacramento River. As the water flows through San Pablo and San Francisco Bays on the way to the Pacific, the waters warm up.Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) is one of five Earth-observing instruments launched December 18, 1999, on NASA's Terra satellite.

    Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) has been remarkably successful in providing detailed quantitative structural information on complex everyday materials, such as polymers and colloids, which are often of considerable industrial as well as academic interest. This paper reviews some recent SANS experiments on polymers and colloids, including ferrofluids, and discusses the use of these apparently complex systems as general physical models of the liquid or solid state.

  19. Teaching Geology at San Quentin State Prison

    Science.gov (United States)

    D'Alessio, M. A.; Pehl, J.; Ferrier, K. L.; Pehl, C. W.

    2004-12-01

    The students enrolled in our Geology 215 class are about as on-traditional as it gets. They range in age from about 20 - 50 years old, they are all male, all from under-represented ethnic groups, and they are all serving time in one of the country's most notorious prisons. We teach in a degree-granting community college program inside California's San Quentin State Prison. The program is run entirely by volunteers, and students who participate in educational programs like ours are about 5 times less likely to return to prison than the general inmate population in California. The prison population of California is ethnically diverse, though minorities are present in higher proportion than in the general population. Last semester, our geology class happened to be composed entirely of minorities even though the college program serves the full spectrum of the prison population. While some trends in geoscience education encourage the use of technology in the classroom, security restrictions prevent us from using even some of the simplest visual aids. Faced with these challenges, we have developed an inquiry-based syllabus for an introductory Geology class at the community college level. We find that kinaesthetic learning activities such as urban geologic mapping and acting out plate tectonic motions from ridge to trench (complete with magnetic pole polarity shifts) are not only possible in restricted learning environments, but they promote student learning in unexpected ways.

  20. Trans Women Doing Sex in San Francisco.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Williams, Colin J; Weinberg, Martin S; Rosenberger, Joshua G

    2016-10-01

    This research investigates the sexuality of trans women (individuals who were assigned male status at birth who currently identify as women), by focusing on the "bodily techniques" (Crossley, 2006) they use in "doing" sexuality. The "doing sexuality" framework not only is modeled after the "doing gender" approach of West and Zimmerman (1987), but also utilizes the idea of "sexual embodiment" to emphasize the agency of trans women as they conceptualize and organize their sexuality in a socially recognized way. This is often difficult as they confront discrimination from medical and legal professionals as well as intimate partners who may find it difficult to adapt to the trans woman's atypical body and conception of gender. However, with a study group of 25 trans women from San Francisco, we found the study participants to be adept at overcoming such hurdles and developing techniques to "do" their sexuality. At the same time, we found trans women's agency constrained by the erotic habitus (Green, 2008) of the wider society. The interplay between innovation and cultural tradition provides an opportunity to fashion a more general model of "doing" sexuality. PMID:27091188

  1. The San Andreas Fault in the San Francisco Bay area, California: a geology fieldtrip guidebook to selected stops on public lands

    Stoffer, Philip W.

    2005-01-01

    This guidebook contains a series of geology fieldtrips with selected destinations along the San Andreas Fault in part of the region that experienced surface rupture during the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. Introductory materials present general information about the San Andreas Fault System, landscape features, and ecological factors associated with faults in the South Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains, the San Francisco Peninsula, and the Point Reyes National Seashore regions. Trip stops include roadside areas and recommended hikes along regional faults and to nearby geologic and landscape features that provide opportunities to make casual observations about the geologic history and landscape evolution. Destinations include the sites along the San Andreas and Calaveras faults in the San Juan Bautista and Hollister region. Stops on public land along the San Andreas Fault in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties include in the Loma Prieta summit area, Forest of Nicene Marks State Park, Lexington County Park, Sanborn County Park, Castle Rock State Park, and the Mid Peninsula Open Space Preserve. Destinations on the San Francisco Peninsula and along the coast in San Mateo County include the Crystal Springs Reservoir area, Mussel Rock Park, and parts of Golden Gate National Recreation Area, with additional stops associated with the San Gregorio Fault system at Montara State Beach, the James F. Fitzgerald Preserve, and at Half Moon Bay. Field trip destinations in the Point Reyes National Seashore and vicinity provide information about geology and character of the San Andreas Fault system north of San Francisco.

  2. Fine-scale delineation of the location of and relative ground shaking within the San Andreas Fault zone at San Andreas Lake, San Mateo County, California

    The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission is seismically retrofitting the water delivery system at San Andreas Lake, San Mateo County, California, where the reservoir intake system crosses the San Andreas Fault (SAF). The near-surface fault location and geometry are important considerations in the retrofit effort. Because the SAF trends through highly distorted Franciscan mélange and beneath much of the reservoir, the exact trace of the 1906 surface rupture is difficult to determine from surface mapping at San Andreas Lake. Based on surface mapping, it also is unclear if there are additional fault splays that extend northeast or southwest of the main surface rupture. To better understand the fault structure at San Andreas Lake, the U.S. Geological Survey acquired a series of seismic imaging profiles across the SAF at San Andreas Lake in 2008, 2009, and 2011, when the lake level was near historical lows and the surface traces of the SAF were exposed for the first time in decades. We used multiple seismic methods to locate the main 1906 rupture zone and fault splays within about 100 meters northeast of the main rupture zone. Our seismic observations are internally consistent, and our seismic indicators of faulting generally correlate with fault locations inferred from surface mapping. We also tested the accuracy of our seismic methods by comparing our seismically located faults with surface ruptures mapped by Schussler (1906) immediately after the April 18, 1906 San Francisco earthquake of approximate magnitude 7.9; our seismically determined fault locations were highly accurate. Near the reservoir intake facility at San Andreas Lake, our seismic data indicate the main 1906 surface rupture zone consists of at least three near-surface fault traces. Movement on multiple fault traces can have appreciable engineering significance because, unlike movement on a single strike-slip fault trace, differential movement on multiple fault traces may exert compressive and

  3. Solar-energy-system performance evaluation. San Anselmo School, San Jose, California, April 1981-March 1982

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pakkala, P. A.

    The San Anselmo School is a one story brick elementary school building in San Jose, California. The active solar energy system is designed to supply 70% of the space heating and 72% of the cooling load. It is equipped with 3740 square feet of evacuated tube collectors, a 2175 gallon tank for heat storage, a solar supplied absorption chiller, and four auxiliary gas fired absorption chillers/heaters. The measured solar fraction of 19% is far below the expected values and is attributed to severe system control and HVAC problems. Other performance data given for the year include the solar savings ratio, conventional fuel savings, system performance factor, and solar system coefficient of performance. Also tabulated are monthly performance data for the overall solar energy system, collector subsystem, space heating and cooling subsystems. Typical hourly operation data for a day are tabulated, including hourly isolation, collector array temperatures (inlet and outlet), and storage fluid temperatures. The solar energy use and percentage of losses are also graphed.

    Heavy metals are natural elements that generally occur in minute concentrations in the earth's crust. While some of these elements, in small quantities, are vital to life, most are harmful in larger doses. Various industrial and agricultural processes can result in dangerously high concentrations of heavy metals in our environment. Consequently, humans can be exposed to unsafe levels of these elements via the air we breathe, the water and food we consume, and the many products we use. During a two week study we collected numerous samples of sediments, water, food, and household items from around the San Francisco Bay Area that represent industrial, agricultural, and urban/residential settings. We analyzed these samples for Mercury (Hg), Lead (Pb), and Arsenic (As). Our goal was to examine the extent of our exposure to heavy metals in our daily lives. We discovered that many of the common foods and materials in our lives have become contaminated with unhealthy concentrations of these metals. Of our food samples, many exceeded the EPA's Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL) set for each metal. Meats (fish, chicken, and beef) had higher amounts of each metal than did non-meat items. Heavy metals were also prevalent in varying concentrations in the environment. While many of our samples exceeded the EPA's Sediment Screening Level (SSL) for As, only two other samples surpassed the SSL set for Pb, and zero of our samples exceeded the SSL for Hg. Because of the serious health effects that can result from over-exposure to heavy metals, the information obtained in this study should be used to influence our future dietary and recreational habits.

    Alameda County is located at the northern end of the Diablo Range of Central California. It is bounded on the north by the south flank of Mount Diablo, one of the highest peaks in the Bay Area, reaching an elevation of 1173 meters (3,849 ft). San Francisco Bay forms the western boundary, the San Joaquin Valley borders it on the east and an arbitrary line from the Bay into the Diablo Range forms the southern boundary. Alameda is one of the nine Bay Area counties tributary to San Francisco Bay. Most of the country is mountainous with steep rugged topography. Alameda County is covered by twenty-eight 7.5' topographic Quadrangles which are shown on the index map. The Quaternary deposits in Alameda County comprise three distinct depositional environments. One, forming a transgressive sequence of alluvial fan and fan-delta facies, is mapped in the western one-third of the county. The second, forming only alluvial fan facies, is mapped in the Livermore Valley and San Joaquin Valley in the eastern part of the county. The third, forming a combination of Eolian dune and estuarine facies, is restricted to the Alameda Island area in the northwestern corner of the county.

  6. Evidence for 115 kilometers of right slip on the san gregorio-hosgri fault trend.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Graham, S A; Dickinson, W R

    1978-01-13

    The San Gregorio-Hosgri fault trend is a component of the San Andreas fault system on which there may have been about 115 kilometers of post-early Miocene right-lateral strike slip. If so, right slip on the San Andreas and San Gregorio-Hosgri faults accounts for most of the movement between the Pacific and North American plates since mid-Miocene time. Furthermore, the magnitude of right slip on a Paleogene proto-San Andreas fault inferred from the present distribution of granitic basement is reduced considerably when Neogene-Recent San Gregorio-Hosgri right slip is taken into account.

    Full Text Available The aim of this study is to elucidate butterfly fauna in Mt. Gariwang-san, Korea. A field survey was conducted from 2010 to 2015 using the line transect method. A literature survey was also conducted. A total of 2,037 butterflies belonging to 105 species were recorded. In the estimation of species richness of butterfly, 116 species were estimated to live in Mt. Gariwang-san. In butterfly fauna in Mt. Gariwang-san, the percentage of northern species was very high and the percentage of grassland species was relatively higher than that of forest edge species and forest interior species. Sixteen red list species were found. In particular, Mimathyma nycteis was only recorded in Mt. Gariwang-san. When comparing the percentage of northern species and southern species including those recorded in previous studies, the percentage of northern species was found to have decreased significantly whereas that of southern species increased. We suggest that the butterfly community, which is distributed at relatively high altitudes on Mt. Gariwang-san, will gradually change in response to climate change.

  8. Solar energy system performance evaluation-seasonal report for Elcam San Diego, San Diego, California

    Science.gov (United States)

    1980-01-01

    The solar energy system, Elcam San Diego, was designed to supply domestic hot water heating for a single family residence located in Encinitas, California. System description, performance assessment, operating energy, energy savings, maintenance, and conclusions are presented. The system is a 'Sunspot' two tank cascade type, where solar energy is supplied to either a 66 gallon preheat tank (solar storage) or a 40 gallon domestic hot water tank. Water is pumped directly from one of the two tanks, through the 65 square feet collector array and back into the same tank. Freeze protection is provided by automatically circulating hot water from the hot water tank through the collectors and exposed plumbing when freezing conditions exist. Auxiliary energy is supplied by natural gas. Analysis is based on instrumented system data monitored and collected for one full season of operation.

  9. Geodetic Investigation of Compliant Fault Zones on the San Francisco Peninsula segment of the San Andreas Fault

    Science.gov (United States)

    Materna, K.; Burgmann, R.

    2015-12-01

    At many places along the San Andreas Fault, geodetic and seismic studies have suggested the presence of near-field compliant fault zones (CFZs). These zones of damaged rock display reduced elastic moduli compared to intact rock, resulting in both higher geodetic strain rates and lower seismic velocities within the fault zones. In this study, we investigate the CFZ surrounding the San Andreas Fault in the San Francisco Peninsula by examining interseismic deformation over the past several decades. We use new and existing survey GPS measurements, as well as older electronic distance measurements, to characterize the deformation of the CFZ. The data come from networks at Black Mountain and Lake San Andreas, both small-aperture geodetic networks on the San Francisco Peninsula with survey GPS occupations spanning at least 15 years. We compare the inferred fault zone properties between the two networks, which are separated by less than 40 kilometers but which represent different geologic boundaries and show different fault ages. We also compare patterns in seismicity between the two regions. The differences in inferred fault parameters between these two regions may be related to differences in fault age and development, giving clues into how CFZs develop over time.

  10. Neutron optics optimization for the SNS EQ-SANS diffractometer

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The extended Q-range small angle neutron scattering (EQ-SANS) diffractometer at the Spallation Neutron Source has recently been completed. Initial commissioning has shown that it has achieved its high intensity, low background, and wide dynamic range design goals. One of the key components that enable these performances is its neutron optics, which are extensively optimized using analytical and Monte Carlo methods. The EQ-SANS optics consist of a curved multichannel beam bender and sections of straight neutron guides on both ends of the bender. The bender and the guide are made of float glass coated with supermirror multilayers. The function of the optics is to ensure low instrument background by avoiding the direct line of sight of the neutron moderator at downstream locations, while transporting thermal and cold neutrons to the sample with maximum efficiency. In this work, the optimization of the EQ-SANS optics is presented.

    1969-01-01

    Seven species of geographically variable birds have been reported as part of the resident avifauna of San Esteban Island in the Gulf of California, Sonora. Two of these, the Curvebilled Thrasher and the Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, may not actually have breeding populations there, at least at the present time. Of the seven, only two, the Verdin and the doubtfully resident thrasher, can be used in a determination of the relationships of the avifauna, and both show affinities to that of Sonora. The Ash-throated Flycatcher and the House Finch are represented by the same form on San Esteban and in both Sonora and Baja California at the latitude of the island. Neither the Ladder-backed Woodpecker nor the endemic Black-throated Sparrow shows greater similarity to the Baja California or Sonoran avifauna. The slight balance of evidence indicates that the avifauna of San Esteban Island is best considered with that of Sonora.

    San Vicente volcano, also known as Chichontepec, is one of many volcanoes along the volcanic arc in El Salvador. This composite volcano, located about 50 kilometers east of the capital city San Salvador, has a volume of about 130 cubic kilometers, rises to an altitude of about 2180 meters, and towers above major communities such as San Vicente, Tepetitan, Guadalupe, Zacatecoluca, and Tecoluca. In addition to the larger communities that surround the volcano, several smaller communities and coffee plantations are located on or around the flanks of the volcano, and major transportation routes are located near the lowermost southern and eastern flanks of the volcano. The population density and proximity around San Vicente volcano, as well as the proximity of major transportation routes, increase the risk that even small landslides or eruptions, likely to occur again, can have serious societal consequences. The eruptive history of San Vicente volcano is not well known, and there is no definitive record of historical eruptive activity. The last significant eruption occurred more than 1700 years ago, and perhaps long before permanent human habitation of the area. Nevertheless, this volcano has a very long history of repeated, and sometimes violent, eruptions, and at least once a large section of the volcano collapsed in a massive landslide. The oldest rocks associated with a volcanic center at San Vicente are more than 2 million years old. The volcano is composed of remnants of multiple eruptive centers that have migrated roughly eastward with time. Future eruptions of this volcano will pose substantial risk to surrounding communities.

  7. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in San Francisco Bay.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Davis, J A; Hetzel, F; Oram, J J; McKee, L J

    2007-09-01

    San Francisco Bay is facing a legacy of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) spread widely across the land surface of the watershed, mixed deep into the sediment of the Bay, and contaminating the Bay food web to a degree that poses health risks to humans and wildlife. In response to this persistent problem, water quality managers are establishing a PCB total maximum daily load (TMDL) and implementation plan to accelerate the recovery of the Bay from decades of PCB contamination. This article provides a review of progress made over the past 15 years in managing PCBs and understanding their sources, pathways, fate, and effects in the Bay, and highlights remaining information needs that should be addressed in the next 10 years. The phaseout of PCBs during the 1970s and the 1979 federal ban on sale and production led to gradual declines from the 1970s to the present. However, 25 years after the ban, PCB concentrations in some Bay sport fish today are still more than ten times higher than the threshold of concern for human health. Without further management action it appears that the general recovery of the Bay from PCB contamination will take many more decades. PCB concentrations in sport fish were, along with mercury, a primary cause of a consumption advisory for the Bay and the consequent classification of the Bay as an impaired water body. Several sources of information indicate that PCB concentrations in the Bay may also be high enough to adversely affect wildlife, including rare and endangered species. The greater than 90% reduction in food web contamination needed to meet the targets for protection of human health would likely also generally eliminate risks to wildlife. PCB contamination in the Bay is primarily associated with industrial areas along the shoreline and in local watersheds. Strong spatial gradients in PCB concentrations persist decades after the release of these chemicals to Bay Area waterways. Through the TMDL process, attention is being more sharply

    The HANARO cold neutron research facility project was launched on July 1, 2003. A state of the art SANS instrument was selected as a top-priority instrument by an instrument selection committee, which consisted of domestic users and HANARO personnel. An instrument development team and an international and domestic instrument advisory team were formulated. The guide and the instrument simulation were performed using Vitess software and the optimum basic design was completed based on the simulation results and the international advisory team reviews. The optimum design of the guide for the 40M SANS instrument was completed and the optimum basic design of the 40M the SANS instrument was also completed based on the Vitess simulation results. The Q range of the instrument will cover from 0.0008 to 1.0 A-1 and the maximum flux at a sample position can reach about 5.5x10 7 n/cm2sec. The simulation results and the basic design product will be used for the detailed design and the construction of the SANS instrument. The simulation results could be applied to the development of the other instrument.

    Heavy metal pollution in water is generally associated with industrial and municipal discharges into rivers, estuaries and lagoons. Once metals are in the water column, they may be taken up by organisms, deposited in the sediments or remain for some period in the water itself. The deposition rate in sediments depends on, among other factors, metal concentration in surface sediments. The concentrations of heavy metals in sediments of coastal, estuarine and lagoon environments have been determined by many workers. For the past several years, we have been interested in determining trace and heavy metal concentrations in the lagoons in Mexico to establish the levels of metal pollution. The work reported here is the completion of our ongoing study in San Andres lagoon. San Andres lagoon is located north of two industrial ports, Tampico and Altamira. In this industrial zone, the basins of the Panuco and Tamesi Rivers are localized and have industrial effluent throughout the year. All these activities and the input of the Tigre River, which runs through an agricultural and cattle-raising region, may affect the biogeochemistry of the San Andres lagoon. In the present work, we report concentrations of Cd, Co, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Zn and Pb in sediments of San Andres lagoon. The measurements were made in different seasons; Rain-84 (August-September 1984); North (October-December 1984); Dry (April 1985); and Rain-85 (April-June 1985). 13 refs., 1 fig., 2 tabs.

    Mental health and psychiatric diseases have always attracted people's and health authorities' attention due to its magical approach, the lack of knowledge that surrounds them, and, at the same time, the religious fear they provoke. Both have played an important role in the history of humanity, of public health politics, and of physicians. The places where psychiatric patients were treated are of historical interest, because through the historical knowledge we can identify an approach from the science and the health policies that prevailed in each age. At the beginning of the 20th century, it was developed in México a new model of hospital care attention to psychiatric patients. La Casa de Salud San Juan de Dios para Pacientes Alienados is an example; the concept "alienated patients" suggests a social and cultural perspective. This paper presents a chronological type description of one of the major institutions involved in mental health care in México. Similarly, it shows a review of the events that affected the religious order San Juan de Dios from 1901 to 2012, when the hospitaller order was reinstated in México and established the Casa de Salud San Juan de Dios para Pacientes Alienados in the town of Zapopan, Jalisco, institution that exists up to the present day and keeps participating in the mental health care in the state of Jalisco, with the current name of Servicios de Salud San Juan de Dios.

  1. Characterization of aerosols in the Metropolitan Area of San Jose

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The objective of the present study, was to elaborate a profile of the contamination by private matter and to characterize the aerosols collected in the Metropolitan Area of San Jose (Costa Rica). For that, a campaign of sampling was carried out in three points of the city of San Jose, differentiated by there degree of activity: Center of San Jose (Central Station of Firemen), San Isidro of Coronado -Canton of Vasquez of Coronado- (Municipality) and Escazu (Municipality). Such campaign was carried out from April 4 to July 4, 1996 (transition summer-winter), and in two periods of time of 8 hours: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and of 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. The aerosols were collected utilizing Gent Pm-10 samplers, in filters of polycarbonate of 0,4 μm and 8 μm in cascade, with a flow average of 15 L/min., and it determined the composition average of the present aerosols. The concentration of the majority of the anions were obtained by means of ionic chromatography of high resolution, and the main cations by spectrophotometry of atomic absorption with electro thermic atomization. The space-temporary variations of the concentrations were evaluated and their correlation with the meteorologic variable. (S. Grainger)

  2. Petrology and geochemistry of the San Félix-San Ambrosio islands, Eastern Pacific

    The San Félix-San Ambrosio (SF-SA) islands, Eastern Pacific, are fragments of two volcanic sequences 20 km apart. Both represent the top of an eroded large shield-volcano which rises over the Nazca Plate. Here, new geochemical and 40Ar/39Ar geochronological data are presented in order to understand magmatic evolution and source features. Two units are recognized on the SF island: (1) the Cerro Amarillo unit (CAU) (190±30 ka) formed by a hyaloclastic-tuff cone and basanitic lavas (Ba/Yb=519; Ba/Zr=2.19; La/Yb=49.88; Nb/Ta=17.96; Nb/Y=3.78; Nb/Zr=0.25) with absent or scarce modal content of plagioclase (20%). The hyaloclastic-tuff cone of the CAU contains aphanitic-trachytic lithic fragments of Na-augite and kaersutite, which correspond to the final product of fractional crystallization of olivine+clinopyroxene+Fe-Ti oxides+apatite±plagioclase from alkaline primitive liquids similar to SF-SA lavas. The geochemical data suggest that the islands represent different evolutive stages of a same volcanic intraplate complex. The alkaline to transitional SA lavas (Ba/Yb=249; Ba/Zr=1.60; La/Yb=24.62; Nb/Ta=16.55; Nb/Y=2.22; Nb/Zr=0.19) would represent the shield stage (ca 2.9 Ma), while the basanitic SF lavas the post-erosional stage (ca 0.2 Ma). Considering the Sr-Nd-Pb isotopic data of the SF-SA lavas, previous works have ruled out a genetic relationship between SF-SA islands and the nearby Nazca Ridge. An heterogeneous mantle plume with mantelic metasomatized recycled lithologies is hypothesized as a possible magmatic source capable of explaining the petrologic differences between the SF-SA islands and between the CAU and PU, in SF island. This research is supported by FONDECYT Project 1141303.

  3. The green areas of San Juan, Puerto Rico

    Full Text Available Green areas, also known as green infrastructure or urban vegetation, are vital to urbanites for their critical roles in mitigating urban heat island effects and climate change and for their provision of multiple ecosystem services and aesthetics. Here, I provide a high spatial resolution snapshot of the green cover distribution of the city of San Juan, Puerto Rico, by incorporating the use of morphological spatial pattern analysis (MSPA as a tool to describe the spatial pattern and connectivity of the city’s urban green areas. Analysis of a previously developed IKONOS 4-m spatial resolution classification of the city of San Juan from 2002 revealed a larger area of vegetation (green areas or green infrastructure than previously estimated by moderate spatial resolution imagery. The city as a whole had approximately 42% green cover and 55% impervious surfaces. Although the city appeared greener in its southern upland sector compared to the northern coastal section, where most built-up urban areas occurred (66% impervious surfaces, northern San Juan had 677 ha more green area cover dispersed across the city than the southern component. MSPA revealed that most forest cover occurred as edges and cores, and green areas were most commonly forest cores, with larger predominance in the southern sector of the municipality. In dense, built-up, urban land, most of the green areas occurred in private yards as islets. When compared to other cities across the United States, San Juan was most similar in green cover features to Boston, Massachusetts, and Miami, Florida. Per capita green space for San Juan (122.2 m²/inhabitant was also comparable to these two U.S. cities. This study explores the intra-urban vegetation variation in the city of San Juan, which is generally overlooked by moderate spatial resolution classifications in Puerto Rico. It serves as a starting point for green infrastructure mapping and landscape pattern analysis of the urban green spaces

  5. 3D Geologic Model of the San Diego Area

    Danskin, W. R.; Cromwell, G.; Glockhoff, C.; Martin, D.

    2015-12-01

    Prior geologic studies of the San Diego area, including northern Baja California, Mexico, focused on site investigations, characterization of rock formations, or earthquake hazards. No comprehensive, quantitative model characterizing the three-dimensional (3D) geology of the entire area has been developed. The lack of such a model limits understanding of large-scale processes, such as development of ancient landforms, and groundwater movement and availability. To evaluate these regional processes, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) conducted a study to better understand the geologic structure of the San Diego area. A cornerstone of this study is the installation and analysis of 77 wells at 12 multiple-depth monitoring-well sites. Geologic information from these wells was combined with lithologic data from 81 oil exploration wells and municipal and private water wells, gravity and seismic interpretations, and paleontological interpretations. These data were analyzed in conjunction with geologic maps and digital elevation models to develop a 3D geologic model of the San Diego area, in particular of the San Diego embayment. Existing interpretations of regional surficial geology, faulting, and tectonic history provided the framework for this model, which was refined by independent evaluation of subsurface geology. Geologic formations were simplified into five sedimentary units (Quaternary, Plio-Pleistocene, Oligocene, Eocene and Cretaceous ages), and one basal crystalline unit (primarily Cretaceous and Jurassic). Complex fault systems are represented in the model by ten fault strands that maintain overall displacement. The 3D geologic model corroborates existing geologic concepts of the San Diego area, refines the extent of subsurface geology, and allows users to holistically evaluate subsurface structures and regional hydrogeology.

    In 2007, the California Ocean Protection Council initiated the California Seafloor Mapping Program (CSMP), designed to create a comprehensive seafloor map of high-resolution bathymetry, marine benthic habitats, and geology within the 3-nautical-mile limit of California's State Waters. The CSMP approach is to create highly detailed seafloor maps through collection, integration, interpretation, and visualization of swath sonar data, acoustic backscatter, seafloor video, seafloor photography, high-resolution seismic-reflection profiles, and bottom-sediment sampling data. The map products display seafloor morphology and character, identify potential marine benthic habitats, and illustrate both the surficial seafloor geology and shallow (to about 100 m) subsurface geology. The Offshore of San Gregorio map area is located in northern California, on the Pacific coast of the San Francisco Peninsula about 50 kilometers south of the Golden Gate. The map area lies offshore of the Santa Cruz Mountains, part of the northwest-trending Coast Ranges that run roughly parallel to the San Andreas Fault Zone. The Santa Cruz Mountains lie between the San Andreas Fault Zone and the San Gregorio Fault system. The nearest significant onshore cultural centers in the map area are San Gregorio and Pescadero, both unincorporated communities with populations well under 1,000. Both communities are situated inland of state beaches that share their names. No harbor facilities are within the Offshore of San Gregorio map area. The hilly coastal area is virtually undeveloped grazing land for sheep and cattle. The coastal geomorphology is controlled by late Pleistocene and Holocene slip in the San Gregorio Fault system. A westward bend in the San Andreas Fault Zone, southeast of the map area, coupled with right-lateral movement along the San Gregorio Fault system have caused regional folding and uplift. The coastal area consists of high coastal bluffs and vertical sea cliffs. Coastal promontories in

  11. Hydrostratigraphy of the Westside Groundwater Basin, San Francisco and San Mateo Counties, California

    Rogge, E. H.; Laforce, M. J.

    2002-12-01

    The Westside Groundwater Basin is a coastal aquifer system located on the San Francisco Peninsula between Golden Gate Park and Burlingame. Since the beginning of the 20th century groundwater from the Basin has been used for drinking water and irrigation purposes. Unfortunately, the Basin wide potentiometric surface has gradually declined and saltwater intrusion from the Pacific Ocean is threatening this fragile aquifer system. Several studies have looked at groundwater movement within the Basin (Boone, Cook and Associates (1987), Yates et al. (1990), Applied Consultants (1991), Geo/Resources Consultants (1993), Phillips et al. (1993), CH2Mhill (1997)); unfortunately, all of the studies assumed horizontal layering of the hydrostratigraphic units. However, recent studies indicate that tectonic deformation and intense folding has altered the stratigraphy of the Westside Basin close to the Pacific Ocean (Bonilla (1998), Barr (1999)). Accordingly, the purpose of this study is to delineate hydrostratigraphic units within the Westside Basin by using tritium, helium, and oxygen isotopes in conjunction with general mineral water quality data, water level data, and geologic cross-sections to depict the subsurface hydrogeology of the system. Our results indicate that the upper part of the Merced Formation (sequences P through Z of Clifton and Hunter (1991, 1999)) forms the major hydrostratigraphic units where groundwater is extracted, and that the Serra Fault separates the upper part of the Merced from the lower part (below sequence P) along most of its extent. In addition, thick clay layers, observed in well logs and identified in cross sections, were tentatively correlated with sequences W and S2. These clay layers, although discontinuous at places, work as aquitards between the hydrostratigraphic units as the difference in water chemistry and age indicates.

  12. SANS study of three-layer micellar particles

    Plestil, J; Kuklin, A I; Cubitt, R

    2002-01-01

    Three-layer nanoparticles were prepared by polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) in aqueous micellar solutions of poly(methyl methacrylate)-block-poly(methacrylic acid) (PMMA-b-PMA) and polystyrene-block-poly(methacrylic acid) (PS-b-PMA). The resulting polymer forms a layer on the core surface of the original micelles. SANS curves were fitted using an ellipsoidal (PMMA/PMMA/PMA) or spherical (PS/PMMA/PMA) model for the particle core. The particle size (for the presented series of the PMMA/PMMA/PMA particles, the core semiaxes ranged from 87 to 187 A and the axis ratio was about 6) can be finely tuned by variation of monomer concentration. Time-resolved SANS experiments were carried out to describe the growth of the PS/PMMA/PMA particles during polymerization. (orig.)

  13. Record of Environmental Change in San Francisco Bay, California

    2004-05-01

    Benthic foraminifera in a 3.52 m core recovered from San Francisco Bay, CA yield a 3,800-year sediment record of climate and environmental change. The microfaunal assemblage of the core contains abundant subtidal estuarine benthic foraminifers found today at shallow water depths (urban areas; its presence being regarded as an index for anthropogenic eutrophication. In San Francisco Bay, this species now commonly comprises over 50% of the foraminiferal fauna, peaking at over 90% at some locations. Such dominance suggests that the environmental conditions of the bay have decreased substantially in the recent past. As an arenaceous species, T. hadai's appearance also marks a possible change in the carbon budget for the bay. Whereas the four most abundant species of foraminifera prior to the T. hadai invasion have tests composed of nearly 100% calcite, T. hadai has only about 6%.

  14. San Jacinto River oil spill: wetland bioremediation project

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Gasoline, diesel and unrefined Arabian light crude oil were accidentally released into the San Jacinto River after a series of pipelines ruptured. Natural removal processes (volatilization, dissolution, weathering), fire, and the spill clean-up effort, removed approximately 95% of the petroleum. The area where residual oil was found was an estuarine wetland on the lower San Jacinto River. Samples were collected from 21 study areas and an evaluation of the varying levels of bioremediation was conducted. Phase one has been completed and involved the evaluation of the natural recovery of oil from the spill. Phase two was still in progress and involved the addition of inorganic nutrients and the alternate electron acceptor to enhance the biodegradation of the petroleum. Results showed that biodegradation was responsible for much of the reduction of certain components in petroleum within the first 150 days. 12 refs., 8 figs

    We examine quantitatively the instrumental factors that affect the theoretical performance and practical application of conventional pinhole collimation and focusing optics for small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) measurements. We calculate the relative performance of pinhole collimation vis-à-vis focusing by grazing incidence elliptical mirrors and compare the results with a recent ray-tracing simulation to show that the performance gains due to focusing found in the simulation arise largely from assuming a much larger sample size. We also compare measurements of the parasitic scattering from pinhole collimation with that from focusing cylindrical quartz mirrors, and a focusing refractive optic, to stress the importance of signal-to-noise as the true measure of performance for SANS instruments.

  17. Emplacement, offset history, and recent uplift of basement within the San Andreas Fault System, northeast San Gabriel Mountains, California

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kenney, Miles Douglas

    1999-11-01

    Mapping, petrography, cross-sections, structure contours, earthquake locations, and focal mechanism analogues of summed moment tensors have provided insights into the reconstruction and deformation associated with the San Andreas Fault System in the San Gabriel and Western San Bernardino Mountains (WSBM) of the Central Transverse Ranges. The San Gabriel Mountains (SGM) represent a Quaternary 'arch' that extends across the northwest trending San Andreas Fault (SAF). Mechanisms to explain the relatively large magnitudes of uplift on both sides of this relatively straight strike slip fault have been problematical. The uplift results from the interactions between the right lateral San Jacinto Fault (SJF) and SAF, and the thrust Cucamonga-Sierra Madre Faults (CF-SMF). Uplift south of the SAF occurs as the SGM Block propagates through the restraining bend at the intersection of the SJF and SAF at the surface, which has produced an antiform in the topography of the range and in the Vincent Thrust. Uplift is also due to motion on the CF-SMF. Uplift north of the SAF is attributed to an upper-crustal north-dipping subsurface restraining bend in the SAF due to the projected intersection of the CF-SMF and SJF, with the SAF. Northwest migration of the restraining bend in the Quaternary has produced a ˜1.5 km high, northeast dipping monocline in crystalline basement which is adjacent and parallel to the SAF. Reverse faults and deformation of alluvial terraces document a northwest migrating locus of compression and uplift. Toward the southeast, the subsurface restraining bend becomes a subsurface lateral ramp where the SJF intersects the SAF at depth. Crystalline basement of the Holcomb Ridge-Table Mountain 'slice' consists of a syntectonically emplaced, intercalated, north-dipping, igneous and metamorphic suite. Cretaceous igneous rocks were emplaced as tabular bodies, which now strike eastwest, and are concordant with a relatively older metasedimentary screen and para

  1. Aggregate Settling Velocities in San Francisco Estuary Margins

    Science.gov (United States)

    Allen, R. M.; Stacey, M. T.; Variano, E. A.

    2015-12-01

    One way that humans impact aquatic ecosystems is by adding nutrients and contaminants, which can propagate up the food web and cause blooms and die-offs, respectively. Often, these chemicals are attached to fine sediments, and thus where sediments go, so do these anthropogenic influences. Vertical motion of sediments is important for sinking and burial, and also for indirect effects on horizontal transport. The dynamics of sinking sediment (often in aggregates) are complex, thus we need field data to test and validate existing models. San Francisco Bay is well studied and is often used as a test case for new measurement and model techniques (Barnard et al. 2013). Settling velocities for aggregates vary between 4*10-5 to 1.6*10-2 m/s along the estuary backbone (Manning and Schoellhamer 2013). Model results from South San Francisco Bay shoals suggest two populations of settling particles, one fast (ws of 9 to 5.8*10-4 m/s) and one slow (ws of < 1*10-7 to 1.4*10-5 m/s) (Brand et al. 2015). While the open waters of San Francisco Bay and other estuaries are well studied and modeled, sediment and contaminants often originate from the margin regions, and the margins remain poorly characterized. We conducted a 24 hour field experiment in a channel slough of South San Francisco Bay, and measured settling velocity, turbulence and flow, and suspended sediment concentration. At this margin location, we found average settling velocities of 4-5*10-5 m/s, and saw settling velocities decrease with decreasing suspended sediment concentration. These results are consistent with, though at the low end of, those seen along the estuary center, and they suggest that the two population model that has been successful along the shoals may also apply in the margins.

    The overall objective of this research is to better understand the sediment transport processes in the microtidal San Jacinto Estuary (near Houston, TX) under variable hydrologic conditions. A numerical modeling approach is selected to answer the main question of; how will changes in freshwater input change the sedimentation pattern of the region? In this computational work, no new numerical method or code is developed, but rather an existing technology (MIKE 3D developed by DHI) is used to build a virtual San Jacinto Estuary laboratory where boundary conditions could be applied and altered to the domain to observe the general functional response of the system. Two synthetic freshwater inflows, simulating dry and wet conditions, were used in the numerical modeling experiments. Simulations showed that change in freshwater inflow has major impact on the salinity magnitude within the estuary. In dry conditions, the 5 ppt isohaline traveled all the way upstream of Morgans Point, almost to the confluence of San Jacinto River with Buffalo Bayou. During the extreme wet weather conditions, the 5 ppt isohaline of the surface water was pushed almost as far as Galveston Island. Overall erosion and deposition pattern showed little change between extreme dry and wet years. In general, part of the shallow areas experienced erosion whereas deeper parts of the estuary were under deposition. High freshwater inflow caused around 30% higher deposition in some parts of the channel compared with the low freshwater. Furthermore, examining the mass balance within the whole San Jacinto Estuary showed that around 28% of the input sediment was flushed out during the wet season. But in dry season, not only no sediment left the domain but also it received around 17% of the total available sediment within the estuary from the shelf.

    Danggui-Shaoyao-San (DSS), also called Toki-shakuyaku-san (TJ-23) or Dangguijakyak-san (DJS), is a well-known herbal formula (Angelica sinensis (Oliv.) Diels., Ligusticum chuanxiong Hort., Paeonia lactiflora pall., Poria cocos (Schw.) Wolf, Alisma orientalis (Sam.) Juzep., Atractylodes macrocephala Koidz.), which has been widely used in oriental countries for the treatment of various gynecological diseases. Recent studies show that DSS has an effect on free radical-mediated neurological diseases and exhibits anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities and reduces cell apoptosis in the hippocampus. In addition, DSS mediates the modulation of central monoamine neurotransmitter systems and ameliorates dysfunction of the central cholinergic nervous system and scopolamine-induced decrease in ACh levels. DSS improves the function of the dopaminergic, adrenergic, and serotonergic nervous systems. Interestingly, DSS can alleviate cognitive dysfunction of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, suggesting that it is a useful therapeutic agent for AD. This paper reviews the mechanism of DSS for the treatment of AD. PMID:27493835

    The San Carlos Apache Tribe (Tribe) in the interests of strengthening tribal sovereignty, becoming more energy self-sufficient, and providing improved services and economic opportunities to tribal members and San Carlos Apache Reservation (Reservation) residents and businesses, has explored a variety of options for renewable energy development. The development of renewable energy technologies and generation is consistent with the Tribe’s 2011 Strategic Plan. This Study assessed the possibilities for both commercial-scale and community-scale solar development within the southwestern portions of the Reservation around the communities of San Carlos, Peridot, and Cutter, and in the southeastern Reservation around the community of Bylas. Based on the lack of any commercial-scale electric power transmission between the Reservation and the regional transmission grid, Phase 2 of this Study greatly expanded consideration of community-scale options. Three smaller sites (Point of Pines, Dudleyville/Winkleman, and Seneca Lake) were also evaluated for community-scale solar potential. Three building complexes were identified within the Reservation where the development of site-specific facility-scale solar power would be the most beneficial and cost-effective: Apache Gold Casino/Resort, Tribal College/Skill Center, and the Dudleyville (Winkleman) Casino.

    Wetland ecosystems may serve as either a source or a sink for atmospheric carbon and greenhouse gases. This delicate carbon balance is influenced by the activity of belowground microbial communities that return carbon dioxide and methane to the atmosphere. Wetland restoration efforts in the San Francisco Bay-Delta region may help to reverse land subsidence and possibly increase carbon storage in soils. However, the effects of wetland restoration on microbial communities, which mediate soil metabolic activity and carbon cycling, are poorly studied. In an effort to better understand the underlying factors which shape the balance of carbon flux in wetland soils, we targeted the microbial communities in a suite of restored and historic wetlands in the San Francisco Bay-Delta region. Using DNA and RNA sequencing, coupled with greenhouse gas monitoring, we profiled the diversity and metabolic potential of the wetland soil microbial communities along biogeochemical and wetland age gradients. Our results show relationships among geochemical gradients, availability of electron acceptors, and microbial community composition. Our study provides the first genomic glimpse into microbial populations in natural and restored wetlands of the San Francisco Bay-Delta region and provides a valuable benchmark for future studies.

    The Colorado Geological Survey initiated and carried out a fully integrated assessment program of the geothermal resource potential of the western San Luis Valley during 1979 and 1980. The San Luis Valley is a large intermontane basin located in southcentral Colorado. While thermal springs and wells are found throughout the Valley, the only thermal waters found along the western part of the Valley are found at Shaw Warm Springs which is a relatively unused spring located approximately 6 miles (9.66 km) north of Del Norte, Colorado. The waters at Shaws Warm Spring have a temperature of 86 F (30 C), a discharge of 40 gallons per minute and contain approximately 408 mg/l of total dissolved solids. The assessment program carried out din the western San Luis Valley consisted of: soil mercury geochemical surveys; geothermal gradient drilling; and dipole-dipole electrical resistivity traverses, Schlumberger soundings, Audio-magnetotelluric surveys, telluric surveys, and time-domain electro-magnetic soundings and seismic surveys. Shaw Warm Springs appears to be the only source of thermal waters along the western side of the Valley. From the various investigations conducted the springs appear to be fault controlled and is very limited in extent. Based on best evidence presently available estimates are presented on the size and extent of Shaw Warm Springs thermal system. It is estimated that this could have an areal extent of 0.63 sq. miles (1.62 sq. km) and contain 0.0148 Q's of heat energy.

    The San Pedro River in Southeastern Arizona is home to nearly 45% of the 900 total species of birds in the United States; millions of songbirds migrate though this unique flyway every year. As the last undammed river in the Southwest, it has been called one of the “last great places” in the US. Human activity has had striking and highly visible impacts on the San Pedro River. As a result, and to help preserve and conserve the area, much of the region has been designated the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (SPRNCA). Attention has been directed to impacts of population, water depletion, and border fence barriers on the riparian environment. To date, there has been little recognition that light at night (LAN), evolving with the increased local population, could have moderating influences on the area. STEM Laboratory has pioneered techniques of coordinated airborne and ground based measurements of light at night, and has undertaken a program of characterizing LAN in this region. We conducted the first aerial baseline surveys of sky brightness in 2012. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) shapefiles allow comparison and correlation of various biological databases with the LAN data. The goal is to better understand how increased dissemination of night time lighting impacts the distributions, behavior, and life cycles of biota on this ecosystem. We discuss the baseline measurements, current data collection programs, and some of the implications for specific biological systems.

The objective of this research was to conduct a historical ecotoxicological assessment of the San Juan de Santiago de Cuba ecosystem. This was considered a systematic environmental monitoring which ran from 2010 to 2013, made q?uarterly. Physicochemical parameters such as electrical conductivity, total alkalinity, total hardness, pH, total solids, dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand were determined. All parameters of environmental risk prediction were performed using the GECOTOX program. The concentrations of Cu, Zn, Pb and Cd on three target organs (brain, gills and liver in the biomonitor adult Gambusia punctata (Poecilidae were analyzed. In this species, the effect of total protein and enzymatic activity of acetylcholinesterase as biomarkers were evaluated. In general, the parameters were outside the values set used by the Cuban quality standards. The GECOTOX program said that the waters of the San Juan ecosystem presented a high rate of risk. The highest concentrations of metals were determined in the gills, liver and brain, respectively. Biomarker values w? ere high, being higher for females. Finally, it was concluded that from one year to another all responses were ascending; thus, the San Juan ecosystem presented ecotoxicological effects in time.

  20. The Cenozoic evolution of the San Joaquin Valley, California

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bartow, J. Alan

    1991-01-01

    The San Joaquin Valley, which is the southern part of the 700-km-long Great Valley of California, is an asymmetric structural trough that is filled with a prism of upper Mesozoic and Cenozoic sediments up to 9 km thick; these sediments rest on crystalline basement rocks of the southwestward-tilted Sierran block. The San Joaquin sedimentary basin is separated from the Sacramento basin to the north by the buried Stockton arch and associated Stockton fault. The buried Bakersfield arch near the south end of the valley separates the small Maricopa-Tejon subbasin at the south end of the San Joaquin basin from the remainder of the basin. Cenozoic strata in the San Joaquin basin thicken southeastward from about 800 m in the north to over 9,000 m in the south. The San Joaquin Valley can be subdivided into five regions on the basis of differing structural style. They are the northern Sierran block, the southern Sierran block, the northern Diablo homocline, the westside fold belt, and the combined Maricopa-Tejon subbasin and southmargin deformed belt. Considerable facies variation existed within the sedimentary basin, particularly in the Neogene when a thick section of marine sediment accumulated in the southern part of the basin, while a relatively thin and entirely nonmarine section was deposited in the northern part. The northern Sierran block, the stable east limb of the valley syncline between the Stockton fault and the San Joaquin River, is the least deformed region of the valley. Deformation consists mostly of a southwest tilt and only minor late Cenozoic normal faulting. The southern Sierran block, the stable east limb of the valley syncline between the San Joaquin River and the Bakersfield arch, is similar in style to the northern part of the block, but it has a higher degree of deformation. Miocene or older normal faults trend mostly north to northwest and have a net down-to-the-west displacement with individual offsets of as much as 600 m. The northern Diablo

    1995-09-01

    Conventional neotectonic interpretations place the Lucia and Point Sur subterranes of the Franciscan subduction complex on opposite sides of the San Gregorio San Simeon Hosgri dextral fault system and connect that system through the Sur fault zone. Our reconstructed paleotemperature contours, however, are not offset across the San Simeon segment, so differential displacement between the subterranes after peak heating appears to have been negligible. One explanation is that dextral slip on the faults has totaled only 5 10 km. A second possibility is that a discrete Hosgri San Simeon segment extends offshore of the amalgamated Point Sur and Lucia subterranes and that an en echelon stepover transfers dextral slip eastward to the San Gregorio Palo Colorado segment. In either case, the Sur fault zone appears to play a relatively insignificant role in the late Cenozoic tectonic evolution of central California.

    Saiki, Michael K.; Palawski, Donald U.

    1990-01-01

    Concentrations of selenium and other trace elements were determined in 55 whole body samples of juvenile anadromous striped bass (Morone saxatilis) from the San Joaquin Valley and San Francisco Estuary, California. The fish (≤1 yr old—the predominant life stage in the San Joaquin Valley) were collected in September–December 1986 from 19 sites in the Valley and 3 sites in the Estuary, and analyzed for the following elements: aluminum (Al), arsenic (As), boron (B), barium (Ba), beryllium (Be), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), mercury (Hg), magnesium (Mg), molybdenum (Mo), nickel (Ni), lead (Pb), selenium (Se), strontium (Sr), vanadium (V), and zinc (Zn). When compared to concentrations in whole freshwater fish measured by surveys from other waters, a few samples contained higher levels, of As, Cd, Cu, Pb, and Se. The median concentrations of Al, As, Cu, Fe, Mg, Se, and Sr also differed significantly (P⩽0.05) among sites. However, only Se concentrations were highest (up to 7.9 μg/g dry weight) in samples from Valley sites exposed to agricultural subsurface (tile) drainwater; concentrations were lower in samples collected elsewhere. Water quality variables—especially those strongly influenced by tile drainwater (conductivity, total dissolved solids, total alkalinity, and total hardness)—were also significantly correlated (P⩽0.05) with Se concentrations in fish. Selenium concentrations in striped bass from the Estuary were only one-fourth to one-half the concentrations measured in the most contaminated fish from the San Joaquin River.

  7. A newly developed simultaneous SANS/FTIR measuring system for structural study on polymer solid states

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) is a powerful and convenient method to investigate the higher order structure of static polymer systems. SANS has increased its presence even in the research concerning time-dependent structural evolution. Although we have employed timeresolved SANS (TR-SANS) for the study on syndiotactic polystyrene (sPS) cocrystals so far, exploiting the large difference in molecular scattering length between fully deuterated and protonated compounds, recently we have tried to develop a new measuring system, which combine TR-SANS with the merit of FTIR spectroscopy, i.e., high potential of quantitative analysis of chemical constituents and high sensitivity to local structures such as chemical structure and molecular conformation, to enrich structural information and interpret SANS data in a more reliable manner. In this paper, we would like to introduce the simultaneous timeresolved SANS and FTIR (STR-SANS/FTIR) system and its application to sPS cocrystals. Fig 1(left) shows schematically our STR-SANS/FTIR measurement system, composed of an FTIR spectrometer and our own designed optical system, which enables the IR radiation and the neutron beam to impinge the sample film coaxially. The device was installed on a small-angle neutron diffractometer KWS2 at MLZ, as shown Fig. 1 (middle). The structural changes in a cocrystal of deuterated sPS (d-sPS) with triethylene glycol dimethyl ether (TEGDME) during the course of heating were followed with this system. Fig. 1(right) reproduces the changes in SANS 2D images and FTIR spectra measured in parallel. As for SANS images, the two lamellar reflections gradually decreased in intensity as the temperature increased and then increased slowly above 100°C. The infrared bands due to TEGDME significantly decreased in intensity, whereas the bands due to d-sPS remained almost unchanged. The information obtained by combining the SANS and FTIR data will be presented at the conference.

    1998-01-01

    San Francisco Bay is the largest estuary on the conterminous U.S. Pacific Coast and is one of the world's largest natural harbors. It is a biologically productive and diverse environment. San Francisco Bay has a maritime economy that annually generates over $7.5 billion, handles 50 million tons of cargo, and involves thousands of jobs. Recent investigations by the USGS in this estuary help address both socio-economic and scientific issues: *Trimming pinnacles may prevent a calamitous oil spill. *Can San Francisco Bay accept more dredge spoil? *Bay floor biological habitats are quite varied. *How thick and how variable is the sediment fill in central San Francisco Bay?

  12. STUDY ON STABILITY OF STRUCTURE AND PROPERTIES OF TIOPC/SAN PHOTOCONDUCTIVE COMPOSITES

    2003-01-01

    The influence of the condensed structure of poly(styrene-co-acrylonitrile) (SAN) and traces of tetrahydrofuran (THF) that remained in titanyl phthalocyanine (TiOPc)/SAN films after fabrication on the photoconductive stability of TiOPc/SAN composites is studied. The results reveal that the existence of traces of THF results in the increase of the photoconductivity and the charging voltage. The main factors responsible for the unstable photoconductivity of the photoconductors are believed to be the relaxation of SAN and the slow volatilization of THF.

Ceux que l’on appelle aujourd’hui les « sans papiers », quelle que soit la raison pour laquelle ils ont décidé d’émigrer et leur carrière migratoire, sont également pour une grande majorité d’entre eux des travailleurs « illégaux ». L’intérêt croissant du gouvernement belge pour la problématique des sans-papiers a amené les différentes inspections sociales chargées de faire respecter les droits sociaux à se concentrer de manière privilégiée sur le contentieux particulier de l’occupation de main-d’œuvre étrangère.Our aim is to argue that increased criminalization of immigration is extended to the sphere of employment too. Persons we call “sans papiers”, the illegal immigrants, no matter why they decided to migrate or which are their careers of migration, represent a vast majority of "illegal" workers too.

  15. San Francisco Bay Sand Mining Resource Evaluation and Impact Analysis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fenical, S.; Tirindelli, M.; Sicular, D.; Gragg, J.; Huitt, C.

    2012-12-01

    This paper presents results of the evaluation of potential future sand resources within certain Central San Francisco Bay (Central Bay) sand mining lease areas, as well as the potential impacts of further mining these areas for a ten-year period. The study consisted of morphological analysis using field measurements and hydrodynamic modeling, and covered a wide spectrum of physical processes including tidal and river circulation, salinity, sediment transport, and morphology. The study was conducted within the framework of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prepared by the California State Lands Commission (CSLC) as part of the discretionary approval process for issuing new mining leases. The results of the morphological analysis indicate a measurable depletion of sand resources in the Central Bay lease areas during the period 1997-2008, and that for the purposes of the proposed ten-year mining lease renewal, sand mining resources in Central Bay are largely limited to material already in place. The morphological analysis results also indicate that the proposed additional ten years of sand mining in the Central Bay lease areas are not likely to cause a significant impact on sediment transport and budgets in areas outside the vicinity of the lease areas, such as the San Francisco Bar, Ocean Beach, etc. Numerical modeling results, including particle tracking exercises, do indicate a net seaward transport of sand, and that a linkage exists between the mining areas and offshore areas (San Francisco Bar, Ocean Beach, etc). However, the modeling results demonstrate that the linkage is weak, and that any measurable changes in hydrodynamics, salinity and sediment transport/morphology caused by the mining activities are likely to be confined to the vicinity of the mining areas.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Halliburton NUS Corporation (NUS) has developed a risk-based configuration management software tool for use at Southern California Edison's San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. The software, called the Safety Monitor, calculates an estimate of current plant core damage risk based upon the plant's current operating configuration (e.g., equipment operability, system operating alignments). All data is entered and displayed in a format easily understood by plant personnel. The plant hopes to use this tool to ensure that risk is minimized during plant operations and to identify situations in which current Technical Specifications can be optimized. Plant configuration data and out-of-service time data is also automatically collected. (author)

    2002-01-01

    The cities of San Francisco and the East Bay are highlighted in this computer-generated perspective viewed from west of the Golden Gate. San Francisco occupies the peninsula jutting into the picture from the right. Golden Gate Park is the long rectangle near its left end and the Presidiois the green area at its tip, from which Golden Gate Bridge crosses to Marin. Treasure Island is the bright spot above San Francisco and Alcatraz Island is the small smudge below and to the left. Across the bay from San Francisco lie Berkeley (left) and Oakland (right). Mount Diablo, a landmark visible for many miles, rises in the distance at the upper right.This three-dimensional perspective view was generated using topographic data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) and an enhanced false-color Landsat 5 satellite image. Colors are from Landsat bands 3, 2, and 1 as red, green and blue, respectively. Topographic expression is exaggerated two times.Landsat has been providing visible and infrared views of the Earth since 1972. SRTM elevation data matches the 30-meter (98-foot) resolution of most Landsat images and will substantially help in analyzing the large and growing Landsat image archive.The Landsat Thematic Mapper image used here came from an on-line mosaic of Landsat images for the continental United States (http://mapus.jpl.nasa.gov), a part of NASA's Digital Earth effort.Elevation data used in this image was acquired by the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, launched on Feb. 11, 2000. SRTM used the same radar instrument that comprised the Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C/X-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SIR-C/X-SAR) that flew twice on the Space Shuttle Endeavour in 1994. SRTM was designed to collect 3-D measurements of the Earth's surface. To collect the 3-D data, engineers added a 60-meter (approximately 200-foot) mast, installed additional C-band and X-band antennas, and improved tracking and navigation devices. The mission

    Free meals often serve as a primary food source for adults living in poverty, particularly the homeless. We conducted a nutritional analysis of 22 meals from 6 free meal sites in San Francisco to determine macronutrient and micronutrient content. Meals provided too little fiber and too much fat but appropriate levels of cholesterol. They were also below target for potassium, calcium, and vitamins A and E. These findings may inform development of nutritional content standards for free meals, particularly for vulnerable patients who might have, or be at risk of developing, a chronic illness.

  6. Deep permeability of the San Andreas Fault from San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) core samples

    Morrow, Carolyn A.; Lockner, David A.; Moore, Diane E.; Hickman, Stephen H.

    2014-01-01

    The San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) scientific borehole near Parkfield, California crosses two actively creeping shear zones at a depth of 2.7 km. Core samples retrieved from these active strands consist of a foliated, Mg-clay-rich gouge containing porphyroclasts of serpentinite and sedimentary rock. The adjacent damage zone and country rocks are comprised of variably deformed, fine-grained sandstones, siltstones, and mudstones. We conducted laboratory tests to measure the permeability of representative samples from each structural unit at effective confining pressures, Pe up to the maximum estimated in situ Pe of 120 MPa. Permeability values of intact samples adjacent to the creeping strands ranged from 10−18 to 10−21 m2 at Pe = 10 MPa and decreased with applied confining pressure to 10−20–10−22 m2 at 120 MPa. Values for intact foliated gouge samples (10−21–6 × 10−23 m2 over the same pressure range) were distinctly lower than those for the surrounding rocks due to their fine-grained, clay-rich character. Permeability of both intact and crushed-and-sieved foliated gouge measured during shearing at Pe ≥ 70 MPa ranged from 2 to 4 × 10−22 m2 in the direction perpendicular to shearing and was largely insensitive to shear displacement out to a maximum displacement of 10 mm. The weak, actively-deforming foliated gouge zones have ultra-low permeability, making the active strands of the San Andreas Fault effective barriers to cross-fault fluid flow. The low matrix permeability of the San Andreas Fault creeping zones and adjacent rock combined with observations of abundant fractures in the core over a range of scales suggests that fluid flow outside of the actively-deforming gouge zones is probably fracture dominated.

  7. Near-surface structure of the 1906 main trace of the San Andreas Fault, San Francisco peninsula segment, California

    The peninsula segment of the San Andreas Fault (SAF) is forecasted to have the second highest probability of producing a M6.7 or greater earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area in the next 30 years; yet, relatively little is known about its slip history. In most places, the surface location of the SAF has been determined primarily on the basis of geomorphic features and from mapping surface ruptures associated with the 1906 M7.9 San Francisco earthquake. To more precisely locate traces of this segment of the SAF along the San Francisco peninsula in the subsurface, we acquired a high-resolution seismic imaging survey, using both seismic refraction and reflection profiling, south of Upper Crystal Springs Reservoir near Woodside, California in June 2012. High-resolution seismic images produced from this study may benefit ongoing paleoseismological investigations along the SAF because the seismic data can be used to precisely locate the main fault trace and auxiliary faults that may contribute to the earthquake hazards associated with the fault zone. Furthermore, the seismic images provide insights into near-surface fault structure and P- and S-wave velocities, which can be important in understanding strong shaking resulting from future earthquakes along this segment of the SAF. We acquired both P- and S-wave data using a 60-channel seismograph system connected via cable to 40-Hz vertical-component and 4-Hz horizontal geophones, which were spaced at 1-m intervals along a 60-m-long transect. Seismic sources (shots) were generated by hammer impacts on a steel plate or aluminum block at each geophone location. All shots were recorded on all channels. This survey design permits simultaneous acquisition of reflection and refraction data so that both refraction tomography and reflection images can be developed. Our initial analysis of the P-wave data shows that seismic velocities across the main trace of the SAF vary from about 700 m/s near the surface to more than 2500 m

    1993-01-01

    The Airglow and Solar Spectrometer Instrument (ASSI) on the San Marco D/L satellite has measured solar extreme ultraviolet irradiances. The data are currently being released for analysis. As a preliminary step in evaluating this important dataset, modeled solar irradiances from 4 to 105 nm are presented for comparison to the San Marco data. The comparable flux for March-December 1988 is obtained from a revised and extended empirical solar EUV model derived from OSO 1, OSO 3, OSO 4, OSO 6, AEROS A, and AE-E satellite and six rocket flight datasets. Solar rotational features are prominent on several occasions in the model time series. A useful example is the modeled integrated flux between 30-31 nm which includes the Si XI (30.3-nm) and He II (30.4-nm) irradiance. The modeled flux in this 1-nm range shows both an absolute 22 percent increase from beginning to end of mission and a solar rotational variability with a typical peak-to-valley ratio of 14 percent.

    Ecker, R.M.; Whelan, G.

    1983-10-01

    The US Coast Guard Station, Fort Point is located three-quarters of a nautical mile southeast of the Golden Gate Strait, the entrance to San Francisco Bay. The existing storm wave conditions at Fort Point Station pier make it extremely dangerous for the SAR crews to get on and off the Motor Life Boats at times requiring the vessels to be moored at the San Francisco Yacht Harbor about 1.5 miles east of the Fort Point Station. To mitigate these harsh working conditions the US Coast Guard is considering the feasibility of constructing suitable all-weather moorings for the three Motor Life Boats at the Fort Point Station to enable unimpeded SAR operations, to provide safe working conditions for Coast Guard small boat crews, and to improve small boat maintenance conditions at Fort Point Station. The purpose of this report is to identify, analyze and evaluate physical environmental factors that could affect all-weather moorings siting, configuration and entrance location, as well as potential post construction alterations to littoral conditions and processes. This report includes a description of the site, description of pertinent littoral processes, evaluation of how these processes could affect construction of all-weather moorings, and discussion of design considerations, as well as mitigation measures to minimize potential adverse effects to the physical environment. 19 references, 27 figures, 26 tables.

  11. Lessons from monitoring water quality in San Francisco Bay

    San Francisco Bay is the defining landscape feature of the place we call ‘The Bay Area,’ but most of us only experience the Bay as we view it from an airplane window or drive across one of its bridges. These views from afar suggest that the Bay is static and sterile, but this impression is deceptive. If you are one of the many thousands of students who have experienced the Bay through a school excursion with the Marine Science Institute or other educational programs, you observed its rich plankton soup under a microscope, sorted clams and worms and crustaceans from mud samples, and identified the gobies, sole, halibut, bat rays, sharks, sardines, and smelt caught with trawls. San Francisco Bay is much more than a landscape feature. It is a dynamic ecosystem, continually changing and teeming with life. The Bay once supported the most valuable fisheries on the west coast of the United States, but commercial fishing for shellfish, shrimp, sturgeon, shad, salmon, and striped bass ended many decades ago because of habitat loss, pollution, invasive species and over harvest.

    Past and future climate data for the San Francisco Bay Area were classified using the Rivas-Martinez (R-M) system to group long-term annual climate averages into categories with biotic significance based on thermotypic and ombrotypic regimes. Bioclimate maps were generated at 270 meter resolution for ten San Francisco Bay Area counties for six 30-year periods from 1911 to 2100 which include the historical 1) 1911-1940, 2) 1941-1970, 3) 1971-2000, and future 4) 2011-2040, 5) 2041-2070, and 6) 2071-2100. Historic averages were generated from PRISM climate data. Future climate projections were generated from two IPCC-based future scenarios (A2 and B1) and two coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation models (NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and the Parallel Climate Model). Strong congruence was found among the boundaries for historic bioclimates and current vegetation types. However, future scenarios had varying patterns of losses and gains in bioclimate classes and these tracked mesoclimate gradients. Comparisons between projected bioclimatic categories and modeled future climatic water deficit show strong correspondence except in zones of deep alluvial deposits. Maps show areas of bioclimatic stability, e.g. areas that did not change under any future projection, versus areas with significant bioclimatic shifts in all future scenarios. These analyses and maps will be useful for assessing natural resource vulnerability to climate change and natural resource conservation-based climate adaptation decisions.

    Full Text Available The herpetofaunal richness of San Julian Universitary Farm (FUSJ, in Patulul, Suchitepequez, Guatemala, was investigated using three methods: (1 Capture/sighting of specimens, (2 social inquiry and (3 desk research. The field work was distributed over a 10 year period (2003-2013 at a rate of six fieldwork sessions each year. A 4.5 km long transect extending through the agricultural landscape of the farm was run repeatedly. Each fieldwork session included diurnal and nocturnal travels. The accumulated search time was 420 hr-transect. The equivalent to 337.5 of accumulated miles were traveled, including elevations between 1490 and 1833 feet above sea level. Three former hunters were interviewed and asked to identify species they think are present at the FUSJ. Published data were reviewed to determine which species were expected to occur in San Julian. Two lists (amphibians andreptiles totaling 97 species (including 95 expected, 38 found and 2 not expected was generated. The quality and significance of our data is discussed.

  14. Designing and application of SAN extension interface based on CWDM

    2005-11-01

    As Fibre Channel (FC) becomes the protocol of choice within corporate data centers, enterprises are increasingly deploying SANs in their data central. In order to mitigate the risk of losing data and improve the availability of data, more and more enterprises are increasingly adopting storage extension technologies to replicate their business critical data to a secondary site. Transmitting this information over distance requires a carrier grade environment with zero data loss, scalable throughput, low jitter, high security and ability to travel long distance. To address this business requirements, there are three basic architectures for storage extension, they are Storage over Internet Protocol, Storage over Synchronous Optical Network/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) and Storage over Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM). Each approach varies in functionality, complexity, cost, scalability, security, availability , predictable behavior (bandwidth, jitter, latency) and multiple carrier limitations. Compared with these connectiviy technologies,Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) is a Simplified, Low Cost and High Performance connectivity solutions for enterprises to deploy their storage extension. In this paper, we design a storage extension connectivity over CWDM and test it's electrical characteristic and random read and write performance of disk array through the CWDM connectivity, testing result show us that the performance of the connectivity over CWDM is acceptable. Furthermore, we propose three kinds of network architecture of SAN extension based on CWDM interface. Finally the credit-Based flow control mechanism of FC, and the relationship between credits and extension distance is analyzed.

  16. Mesoscopic structure of cerium waste loaded hydrated cement by SANS

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Cementation is one of the most commonly used methods for conditioning radioactive wastes. It provides a cost-effective solution for encapsulation of low and intermediate level radioactive wastes into suitable solid form for long term safety storage. Cerium is used for decontamination of alpha contaminated metallic waste and after this decontamination process, secondary wastes with corrosion products are created, which must be managed properly and cemented for near surface disposal. In the present work, modification of mesoscopic structure in hydrated cement due to addition of simulated cerium waste at different concentrations has been investigated by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). Structural modifications, in mesoscopic length scale, have been observed. The scattering profiles for three kinds of cement blocks (virgin, 10 g/l and 20 g/l of corrosion product (C.P.) with 4 mm thickness) are shown. Data have been analyzed in the light of polydisperse spherical particles model assuming a log-normal distribution. Widely separated bimodal particle size distributions best represent the present data. Further, it has been observed that the scattering profile obeys power-law (Q-n) behaviour in two domains of Q, which reflects the self-similar/self-affined morphology of the inhomogeneities. Estimated parameters from SANS data are tabulated. A comparison is shown mentioning the value of scattering radius of gyration, exponent values (η) and average particle size for each kind of hydrated cement sample. (author)

    At the June, 1997 AAS meeting in San Diego I arranged a topical session on the Shapley Visiting Lectureships Program. There were poster papers and speakers from the early days of the program, going back to the Visiting Lectureships Program of the AAS. Then the three past directors and the present director described their activities in running the program from 1979 to 1997. We had other speakers who described their many visits to institutions over the years and representatives from two institutions which had received many visits. This session provided much interesting information about the Shapley Program and its history. At the end of the program several people pledged, and then gave, a substantial sum to the Shapley Endowment Fund. Because of all these events and happenings, the San Diego Meeting was a highlight meeting for me. A second meeting with significance to the Shapley Program was the June, 1996 meeting in Madison, Wisconsin. At this meeting certificates were awarded to 31 lecturers who had made 15 or more Shapley visits and 18 lecturers who had made 25 or more visits. A dinner was held at which those lecturers in these two groups who were present at the meeting were personally awarded their certificates. The remaining certificates were mailed after the meeting. The success of the Shapley Program is directly related to the devotion of its group of lecturers who spend considerable time and effort in making the two day visits to host institutions.

    This report describes geophysical data acquired by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in San Andreas Reservoir and Upper and Lower Crystal Springs Reservoirs, San Mateo County, California, as part of an effort to refine knowledge of the location of traces of the San Andreas Fault within the reservoir system and to provide improved reservoir bathymetry for estimates of reservoir water volume. The surveys were conducted by the Western Coastal and Marine Geology (WCMG) Team of the USGS for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC). The data were acquired in three separate surveys: (1) in June 2007, personnel from WCMG completed a three-day survey of San Andreas Reservoir, collecting approximately 50 km of high-resolution Chirp subbottom seismic-reflection data; (2) in November 2007, WCMG conducted a swath-bathymetry survey of San Andreas reservoir; and finally (3) in April 2008, WCMG conducted a swath-bathymetry survey of both the upper and lower Crystal Springs Reservoir system.

    Population pressures within the greater San Francisco Bay Area are forcing development into nearby rural communities, and are impacting local environments. This study of the San Gregorio Creek Watershed is designed as a baseline for evaluating the effect increasing development within the drainage basin has on its river system. We hope to provide evidence for that impact through laboratory and field studies that provide a snap-shot of this drainage basin's current characteristics. The San Gregorio Creek watershed, in the Coast Ranges, is located in the southwestern portion of San Mateo County, California. It drains the western slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains, in the Coast Ranges into the Pacific Ocean at the town of San Gregorio. Most of its fingertip tributaries flow into the trunk from the north and west, with elevations as high as 2050 feet. The watershed includes an area of approximately 51.6 square miles and San Gregorio Creek, the trunk stream, is roughly 12 miles long. San Gregorio Creek is a fourth order perennial stream. It is fed by a number of major tributaries, the largest of which are Alpine, Mindego, and La Honda creeks. The U.S. Geological Survey maintains a stream gauging station for San Gregorio Creek at the town of San Gregorio, where it has been monitoring stream flows for more than 30 years through its Water Resources Department. The resulting data indicate a mean discharge of 36.4 cfs. Map studies of hydraulic geometry for the drainage basin reveal geometric characteristics for San Gregorio Creek that coincide with similar streams in comparable climatic and environmental settings. Stream table studies are used to further investigate fundamental stream processes. Field studies at selected reaches throughout the drainage basin will document hydraulic characteristics. The results of this study will contribute to more comprehensive studies demonstrateing channel response to changing environmental conditions.

    2001-01-01

    This illustration features images of southern California and southwestern Nevada acquired on January 3, 2001 (Terra orbit 5569), and includes data from three of MISR's nine cameras. The San Joaquin Valley, which comprises the southern extent of California's Central Valley, covers much of the viewed area. Also visible are several of the Channel Islands near the bottom, and Mono and Walker Lakes, which stand out as darker patches near the top center, especially in the vertical and backward oblique images. Near the lower right of each image is the Los Angeles Basin, with the distinctive chevron shape of the Mojave Desert to its north.The Central Valley is a well-irrigated and richly productive agricultural area situated between the Coast Range and the snow-capped Sierra Nevadas. During the winter, the region is noted for its hazy overcasts and a low, thick ground fog known as the Tule. Owing to the effects of the atmosphere on reflected sunlight, dramatic differences in the MISR images are apparent as the angle of view changes. An area of thick, white fog in the San Joaquin Valley is visible in all three of the images. However, the pervasive haze that fills most of the valley is only slightly visible in the vertical view. At the oblique angles, the haze is highly distinguishable against the land surface background, particularly in the forward-viewing direction. Just above image center, the forward view also reveals bluish-tinged plumes near Lava Butte in Sequoia National Forest, where the National Interagency Coordination Center reported an active forest fire.The changing surface visibility in the multi-angle data allows us to derive the amount of atmospheric haze. In the lower right quadrant is a map of haze amount determined from automated processing of the MISR imagery. Low amounts of haze are shown in blue, and a variation in hue through shades of green, yellow, and red indicates progressively larger amounts of airborne particulates. Due to the topographically

  4. Coastal Adaptation: The Case of Ocean Beach, San Francisco

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cheong, S.

    2012-12-01

    Coastal erosion, storms, sea-level rise, and tsunamis all lead to inundation that puts people and communities at risk. Adapting to these coastal hazards has gained increasing attention with climate change. Instead of promoting one particular strategy such as seawalls or defending against one type of hazard, scholars and practitioners encourage a combination of existing methods and strategies to promote synergistic effects. The recently published Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on climate extremes reflects this trend in the integration of disaster risk management and climate change adaptation. This paper focuses on the roles, compatibilities, and synergies of three coastal adaptation options - engineering, vegetation, and policy - in the case of Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Traditionally engineering approach and ecosystem conservation often have stood in opposition as hard shoreline structures destroy coastal habitats, worsen coastal erosion, divert ocean currents, and prevent the natural migration of shores. A natural migration of shores without structure translates into the abandonment of properties in the coastal zone, and is at odds with property rights and development. For example, policies of relocation, retreat, and insurance may not be popular given the concerns of infrastructure and coastal access. As such, engineering, natural defense, and policy can be more conflictual than complementary. Nonetheless, all these responses are used in combination in many locations. Complementarities and compatibilities, therefore, must be assessed when considering the necessity of engineering responses, natural defense capabilities, and policy options. In this light, the question is how to resolve the problem of mixed responses and short- and long-term interests and values, identify compatibilities, and generate synergies. In the case of Ocean Beach, recent erosions that endangered San Francisco's wastewater treatment system acted as major

  5. SRTM Perspective View with Landsat Overlay: San Joaquin Valley, California

    Science.gov (United States)

    2000-01-01

    San Joaquin, the name given to the southern portion of California's vast Central Valley, has been called the world's richest agricultural valley. In this perspective view generated using data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission and an enhanced Landsat image, we are looking toward the southwest over a checkerboard pattern of agricultural fields. Mt. Pinos, a popular location for stargazing at 2,692 meters (8,831 feet) looms above the valley floor and is visible on the left side of the image. The productive southern San Joaquin is in reality a desert, averaging less than 12.7 cm (5 inches) of rain per year. Through canals and irrigation, the region nurtures some two hundred crops including grapes, figs, apricots, oranges, and more than 4,047 square-km (1,000,000 acres) of cotton. The California Aqueduct, transporting water from the Sacramento River Delta through the San Joaquin, runs along the base of the low-lying Wheeler Ridge on the left side of the image. The valley is not all agriculture though. Kern County, near the valley's southern end, is the United States' number one oil producing county, and actually produces more crude oil than Oklahoma. For visualization purposes, topographic heights displayed in this image are exaggerated two times. Colors, from Landsat data, approximate natural color.The elevation data used in this image was acquired by SRTM aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, launched on February 11, 2000. SRTM used the same radar instrument that comprised the Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C/X-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SIR-C/X-SAR) that flew twice on Endeavour in 1994. SRTM was designed to collect three-dimensional measurements of Earth's land surface. To collect the 3-D SRTM data, engineers added a mast 60 meters (about 200 feet)long, installed additional C-band and X-band antennas, and improved tracking and navigation devices. The mission is a cooperative project between the NASA, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) of the U

    A unique arrangement has the science coordinator for Capistrano Unified School District's (CUSD) grades kindergarten through eight (K-8) as a part-time contract employee at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS). The purpose is to assess the science capabilities at SONGS useful to CUSD teachers and to assist in making them available. This is different from the usual single-teacher renewal program or from part-time employment. This creates several unique situations for SONGS and the 23 K-8 schools in CUSD, supplementing the existing program of optional science field trips to SONGS. This approach also interests the developing mind in science before being turned off by uninteresting, user-unfriendly, bookish approaches

    Ce papier présente la commande par flux orienté d'une machine asynchrone sans capteur de vitesse ou de position. Le flux rotorique est évalué grâce à un observateur d'ordre réduit d'un type voisin de Luenberger travaillant dans un repère fixe statorique. L'estimation de la vitesse est obtenue à partir du module du flux rotorique, des courants statoriques mesurés et de l'angle d'orientation du flux rotorique. Cette étude basée sur des simulations démontre un comportement acceptable de la comma...

    We are developing a set of synoptic image maps compiled from daily photometric images taken at the San Fernando Observatory. Our initial maps show the progression of solar features across the central meridian for approximately one solar rotation. The red continuum maps show the photometric contrast of solar features in the photosphere while the Ca II K-line maps show the same in the lower chromosphere. Comparing these maps with each other, and with those of other solar groups, will yield information regarding the evolutionary patterns of solar activity at different heights of the solar atmosphere. This is a first step toward a comprehensive set of synoptic maps covering the period from mid-solar cycle 22 in 1988 to the present. This work has been supported in part by NSF grant ATM-0848518.

    Except for in Mexico City, abortion is legally restricted throughout Mexico, and unsafe abortion is prevalent. We surveyed 1,516 women seeking abortions in San Diego, California. Of these, 87 women (5.7%) self-identified as Mexican residents. We performed in-depth interviews with 17 of these women about their experiences seeking abortions in California. The Mexican women interviewed were generally well-educated and lived near the U.S.-Mexican border; most sought care in the United States due to mistrust of services in Mexico, and the desire to access mifepristone, a drug registered in the United States for early medical abortion. Several reported difficulties obtaining health care in Mexico or reentering the United States when they had postabortion complications. Several areas for improvement were identified, including outreach to clinics in Mexico. PMID:23066967

    Full Text Available  Geometric logic characterizes the function and standard structure of the castles built under Frederick II: a square form with four square towers inserted at the summit. Any changes made have been few and slight, all intended to optimize the adaption of the structure to the site. However, the Matinale Castle in San Felice a Cancello, province of Caserta, in the region of Campania, represents an innovative exception. The study of the ruins confirms a rather singular guiding principle: the position and shape of the foundations of the towers allowed them to halve the number of the inevitable sectors used for flank defence. This solution anticipates by more than two centuries the advent of the bastion, the key element of the trace italienne or star fort. In order to fully comprehend this sophisticated concept, unique of its type, for a restoration was made aware of the critical survey.

  16. Enteric pathogenic protozoa in homosexual men from San Francisco.

    The prevalence of enteric protozoa was studied in a survey conducted among 150 male homosexual patients in San Francisco. All patients were from a private practice in internal medicine. Each was asked to complete a questionnaire and to submit multiple stool specimens for examination. Of this group, 47% were positive for one or more potentially pathogenic intestinal protozoa; Entamoeba histolytica was found in 36%, Entamoeba hartmanni in 35%, Giardia lamblia in 5%, and Dientamoeba fragilis in 1.3%. Symptoms were unreliable as a diagnostic index of intestinal protozoan infection. Colonization rates could not be correlated with any specific sexual technique. The large number of homosexuals at risk, combined with the potential for difficulties in diagnosis and contact-tracing, indicate the possibility that enteric pathogenic protozoa will cause future health problems in this population.

    A plan was developed during 1971 to determine gross tectonic plate motions along the San Andreas Fault System in California. Knowledge of the gross motion along the total fault system is an essential component in the construction of realistic deformation models of fault regions. Such mathematical models will be used in the future for studies which will eventually lead to prediction of major earthquakes. The main purpose of the experiment described is the determination of the relative velocity of the North American and the Pacific Plates. This motion being so extremely small, cannot be measured directly but can be deduced from distance measurements between points on opposite sites of the plate boundary taken over a number of years.

    As part of a multi-institutional simulation effort, we present large scale computations of the ground motion during the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake using a new finite difference code called WPP. The material data base for northern California provided by USGS together with the rupture model by Song et al. is demonstrated to lead to a reasonable match with historical data. In our simulations, the computational domain covered 550 km by 250 km of northern California down to 40 km depth, so a 125 m grid size corresponds to about 2.2 Billion grid points. To accommodate these large grids, the simulations were run on 512-1024 processors on one of the supercomputers at Lawrence Livermore National Lab. A wavelet compression algorithm enabled storage of time-dependent volumetric data. Nevertheless, the first 45 seconds of the earthquake still generated 1.2 TByte of disk space and the 3-D post processing was done in parallel.

    Despite widespread detection of microplastic pollution in marine environments, data describing microplastic abundance in urban estuaries and microplastic discharge via treated municipal wastewater are limited. This study presents information on abundance, distribution, and composition of microplastic at nine sites in San Francisco Bay, California, USA. Also presented are characterizations of microplastic in final effluent from eight wastewater treatment plants, employing varying treatment technologies, that discharge to the Bay. With an average microplastic abundance of 700,000particles/km(2), Bay surface water appears to have higher microplastic levels than other urban waterbodies sampled in North America. Moreover, treated wastewater from facilities that discharge into the Bay contains considerable microplastic contamination. Facilities employing tertiary filtration did not show lower levels of contamination than those using secondary treatment. As textile-derived fibers were more abundant in wastewater, higher levels of fragments in surface water suggest additional pathways of microplastic pollution, such as stormwater runoff.

    Cluster analysis offers an agnostic way to organize and explore features of the current GPS velocity field without reference to geologic information or physical models using information only contained in the velocity field itself. We have used cluster analysis of the Southern California Global Positioning System (GPS) velocity field to determine the partitioning of Pacific-North America relative motion onto major regional faults. Our results indicate the large-scale kinematics of the region is best described with two boundaries of high velocity gradient, one centered on the Coachella section of the San Andreas Fault and the Eastern California Shear Zone and the other defined by the San Jacinto Fault south of Cajon Pass and the San Andreas Fault farther north. The ~120 km long strand of the San Andreas between Cajon Pass and Coachella Valley (often termed the San Bernardino and San Gorgonio sections) is thus currently of secondary importance and carries lesser amounts of slip over most or all of its length. We show these first order results are present in maps of the smoothed GPS velocity field itself. They are also generally consistent with currently available, loosely bounded geologic and geodetic fault slip rate estimates that alone do not provide useful constraints on the large-scale partitioning we show here. Our analysis does not preclude the existence of smaller blocks and more block boundaries in Southern California. However, attempts to identify smaller blocks along and adjacent to the San Gorgonio section were not successful.
