Potential Geologic Hazards Near the Thistle Landslide, Utah County, Utah

United States Geological Survey

In mid-April, 1983, an old landslide near Thistle, Utah, began to move, and within days had blocked Spanish Fork Canyon. As the slide's movement continued, construction crews gradually converted the toe of the slide into an earth-filled dam--Thistle dam--that impounded northwest-flowing Spanish For...

Estimación de la disponibilidad de frío invernal para cerezos de la zona norte de la provincia de Mendoza, Argentina/ Winter chill availability estimation for sweet cherries in northern Mendoza province, Argentina

Naranjo, G.; Tersoglio, E.
2010-06-01

Resumen en español Durante el reposo invernal los frutales de clima templado deben estar expuestos a bajas temperaturas para satisfacer sus necesidades de frío. La disponibilidad de frío varía entre regiones y entre años, y puede ser insuficiente para los cerezos. Por lo tanto cuando se desea incorporar el cultivo del cerezo a nuevas regiones se debe conocer previamente la disponibilidad de frío invernal. Los objetivos del presente estudio fueron: desarrollar un pronóstico para estima (mas) r la disponibilidad de frío invernal y calcular la probabilidad de satisfacer una determinada demanda de frío del año en curso. Los modelos mostraron que el porcentaje de variabilidad explicado de las unidades de frío Utah modificado en las fechas de referencias (UFUM FR) varía entre 50 y 87% para Junín y entre 50 y 86% para San Martín. La probabilidad que posee Junín de alcanzar el valor medio de 884 unidades de frío Utah Modificado (UFUM) es 28%, mientras el valor medio de San Martín es 816 UFUM y su probabilidad es 16%. El pronóstico de frío invernal permitirá al productor evaluar los riesgos que posee su plantación de experimentar daños por falta de frío invernal y eventualmente ejecutar medidas correctivas. Resumen en inglés During the winter rest, fruit trees of temperate zones should be exposed to low temperatures in order to satisfy their chilling requirements. Chill availability varies through regions and years, and this may be insufficient for cherry trees. Therefore, when farmers want to incorporate new areas, they should be acquainted with winter chilling availability beforehand. The objectives of this study were: to develop a prognosis to estimate the amount of winter chilling and to (mas) calculate the probability of satisfying the amount of chilling requirement of any given year. Models showed that the proportion explained by modified Utah chill units at reference date (MUCU RD) varied between 50 to 87% for Junín and 50 to 86% for San Martín. For Junín, the probability to reach an average value of 884 chill units Utah modified (MUCU) is 28%, whereas the average value for San Martín is 816 MUCU and its probability correspond to 16%. The winter chill prognosis will allow the producer evaluates the risks which has its plantation suffer damage due to lack of winter chill and eventually implement corrective measures.

Investigación y docencia en salud mental: (I) Reflexiones para el clínico antes de la autoinmolación/ Research and teaching in Mental Health: Reflections for clinics before self-sacrifice

Tizón, Jorge L.
2001-03-01

Resumen en español Se resumen algunos rasgos de la conyuntura ideológica, social e institucional de la investigación, la formación y la docencia en salud mental y el efecto que ciertos de ellos están poseyendo de desmovilizar a los clínicos y provocar "bum-out" o "desengaño" de los mismos. Se especifican algunos de los escandalosos déficits formativos de los nuevos profesionales de las técnicas de "salud mental": en entrevista clínica, técnicas psicológicas, técnicas mixtas, té (mas) cnicas adaptadas a la red y condiciones autóctonas... En cuanto a la investigación, se describen el efecto Utah y los afer Darsee y Burt con el fin de efectuar algunas reflexiones sobre su fundamentación metodológica y epistemológica y sobre sus repercusiones pragmáticas. Por último, se propone una tipología irónica de las pespectivas dogmáticas de la investigación y la docencia en salud' mental: la "perspectiva Bambi" y la "perspectiva Godzilla". Resumen en inglés Paper resumes sorne issues of social, ideological and institutional context for teaching and researching in mental health as well as its effects 'on clinic's hope and implicit pressures to "burn-out". Sorne new-mental health professional's scandalous training deficits are specified: on clinical interview, psychological techniques, shared techniques, technical adaptations to health network and autochthonous context... On research issues, the author remembers the Utah effec (mas) t and Darsee and Burt's affairs with the aim to illustrate methodological, epistemological and pragmatic shunts. To end, a ironic typology is proposedfor the dogmatic points ofview on mental health research and teaching: Bambi's perspective and Godzilla's perspective.

Resumen en español El trabajo parte de una reflexión epistemológica sobre la investigación en psicoterapia y una descripción de las áreas, métodos y condicionantes para el futuro de la misma. Se describen asimismo algunas consecuencias ilustrativas de los sesgos que han venido mostrándose anteriormente, tanto de la "perspectiva Bambi" como de la "perspectiva Godzilla". Se plantean como ejemplos ilustrativos los siguientes: la santificación del "managed care"; el efecto Utah en el la (mas) nzamiento de nuevos neurolépticos y antidepresivos; los resultados negativos de los metaanálisis de una técnica que sigue practicándose y defendiéndose, como es la TEC; los resultados positivos pero poco conocidos de algunas técnicas psicológicas elementales en el cuidado de los pacientes graves y sus familiares así como de la depresión puerperal; los resultados negativos o inciertos de determinadas técnicas "contraculturales", etc. Para terminar, se realizan una serie de propuestas integradoras, tanto para la investigación como para la docencia en salud mental, orientadas por un intento de soslayar los dogmatismos y sectarismos habituales. Resumen en inglés Paper begins with an epistemological reflection on psychotherapy research and a description of areas, methods and condition ants for its future. Sorne shunts of Bambi's perspective and Godzilla's perspective are described. Sorne illustrative examples are considered: the sanctification of "managed care", the Utah effect on marketing of new neuroleptics and antidepressants, the meta-analysis negative results about ECT, the positive but almost unknown effects of sorne elemen (mas) tary psychological techniques on severe disorders care and on puerperal depression, the negative results of sorne "contra cultural" techniques... To end, a series of integrative proposals for research and teaching in mental health are developed --with the common objective to avoid the sectarian and dogmatic trends almost habitual in that field.

Características de la disponibilidad de frío invernal para cerezos en la zona norte de la provincia de Mendoza, Argentina/ Features available of winter cold to sweet cherry north areas of the province of Mendoza, Argentina

Naranjo, G.; Tersoglio, E.
2010-06-01

Resumen en español La carencia de frío invernal afecta la calidad y reduce los rendimientos de los frutales de carozo. Los cerezos poseen fuertes exigencias de frío invernal. La acumulación de unidades de frío Utah modificada (UFUM) que presentan las zonas estudiadas, San Martín y Junín, varía a través de los años. En tales áreas el cultivo del cerezo aún no se ha difundido. Junín posee un valor medio de 884 UFUM, mientras que en San Martín es de 816 UFUM, suficiente sólo para (mas) variedades de requerimientos bajos. El 95% de los ciclos invernales oscilaron de 459 a 1310 para Junín y de 390 a 1241 UFUM para San Martín. En ambos departamentos sólo el 45% de los años se alcanzan las 900 UFUM, mientras que la probabilidad de cumplir 900 UFUM es 57% y 41% para Junín y San Martín respectivamente. La probabilidad de 1200 UFUM es de sólo 8 y 5% para Junín y San Martín respectivamente. Este estudio establece bases que deberían ser consideradas para el desarrollo de proyectos de producción de cerezas en áreas con baja disponibilidad de frío y sin experiencia en el cultivo. Además, permitiría seleccionar las variedades más adaptadas y desarrollar una zonificación para el cultivo. Resumen en inglés The lack of winter chilling has an effect on fruit quality and yield in stone fruits. Sweet cherry trees have strong winter chilling demands. The accumulation of modified Utah chill units (MUCU) observed in these areas, San Martín and Junín, is variable. In these areas, the cultivation of the sweet cherry tree has not spread yet. Junín shows a mean of 884 MUCU, meanwhile San Martín has 816 MUCU, just enough for low requirement varieties. However, 95% of winters oscill (mas) ated between 459 and 1310 MUCU for Junín, and 390 to 1241 MUCU for San Martín. In both areas only 45% of the years reaches 900 MUCU, while probabilities to fulfill 900 MUCU are 57% and 41% for Junín and San Martín respectively. The probability of 1200 MUCU is 8% and 5% for Junín and San Martín. This study establishes the basis that should be considered for sweet cherry development projects in areas with low chilling availability and no experience in crop production. Moreover, it allows to select more adapted varieties and to develop crop zoning.
