    Although clouds obscure part of the city of San Francisco and the mouth of the Bay (37.5N, 122.0W), many cultural and natural features in the immediate vicinity are obvious. The Bay Bridge which was damaged in the 1989 earthquake, Candlestick Park, San Mateo and Dumbarton Bridges as well as the various colored settling ponds rimming the south end of the Bay, the San Andreas and Calaveras faults and many of the major highways can be seen. Color infrared photography is very useful for haze penetration and greater definition of the imagery as well as vegetation detection, depicted as shades of red.

  5. Swash zone characteristics at Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    Erikson, L.H.; Hanes, D.M.; Barnard, P.L.; Gibbs, A.E.

    2007-01-01

    Runup data collected during the summer of 2005 at Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA are analyzed and considered to be typical summer swash characteristics at this site. Analysis shows that the beach was dissipative with Iribarren numbers between 0.05 and 0.4 and that infragravity energy dominated. Foreshore slopes were mild between 0.01 and 0.05 with swash periods on the order of a minute. Predicted runup heights obtained with six previously developed analytical runup formulae were compared to measured extreme runup statistics. Formulations dependent on offshore wave height, foreshore slope and deep water wavelength gave reasonable results.

  9. Copper bioavailability and toxicity to Mytilus galloprovincialis in Shelter Island Yacht Basin, San Diego, CA.

    PubMed

    Bosse, Casey; Rosen, Gunther; Colvin, Marienne; Earley, Patrick; Santore, Robert; Rivera-Duarte, Ignacio

    2014-08-15

    The bioavailability and toxicity of copper (Cu) in Shelter Island Yacht Basin (SIYB), San Diego, CA, USA, was assessed with simultaneous toxicological, chemical, and modeling approaches. Toxicological measurements included laboratory toxicity testing with Mytilus galloprovincialis (Mediterranean mussel) embryos added to both site water (ambient) and site water spiked with multiple Cu concentrations. Chemical assessment of ambient samples included total and dissolved Cu concentrations, and Cu complexation capacity measurements. Modeling was based on chemical speciation and predictions of bioavailability and toxicity using a marine Biotic Ligand Model (BLM). Cumulatively, these methods assessed the natural buffering capacity of Cu in SIYB during singular wet and dry season sampling events. Overall, the three approaches suggested negligible bioavailability, and isolated observed or predicted toxicity, despite an observed gradient of increasing Cu concentration, both horizontally and vertically within the water body, exceeding current water quality criteria for saltwater.

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    2002-01-01

    STS-107 Mission Specialist Ilan Ramon is seen during this preflight interview, where he gives a quick overview of the mission before answering questions about his inspiration to become an astronaut and his career path. He outlines his role in the mission in general, and specifically in conducting on-board science experiments. He discusses the following instruments and sets of experiments in detail: CM2 (Combustion Module 2), FREESTAR (Fast Reaction Enabling Science Technology and Research), MEIDEX (Mediterranean Israeli Dust Experiment) and MGM (Mechanics of Granular Materials). Ramon also mentions on-board activities during launch and reentry, mission training and microgravity research. In addition, he touches on the dual work-shift nature of the mission, the use of crew members as research subjects including pre and postflight monitoring activities, the emphasis on crew safety during training and the value of international cooperation.

  11. Implications for San Andreas Fault Ruptures Based on New Evidence from the Cabazon, CA Paleoseismic Site, San Gorgonio Pass Fault Zone

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Scharer, K. M.; Yule, D.; Humbert, L. R.; Witkowsky, R.

    2013-12-01

    The 10-km section of the San Gorgonio Pass fault zone (SGPFZ) between the Banning and San Bernardino strands of the San Andreas fault is composed of roughly orthogonal, alternating strike slip and thrust fault sections. In order to investigate whether the complexity of the fault system is a barrier to thoroughgoing ruptures and consequently a limit on earthquake magnitude, we excavated a mega-trench across a compressional section of the SGPFZ approximately 2 km northeast of Cabazon, CA. The mega-trench was located at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains and exposed Pleistocene Cabazon Formation in the hanging wall block, thrust over Holocene alluvial units. Sediments in the 9-m-deep trench consisted of boulder to cobble debris flow deposits and silty sand fluvial sequences, which buried and were interbedded with incipient soil horizons. We present evidence for five earthquakes in the mega-trench, determined by several generations of fault scarps buried by progressively younger sediments. Vertical separation for each event was small, on the order of 30 to 60 cm at the paleo-ground surfaces. Preliminary radiocarbon dating of charcoal collected from the deformed sediments constrains the five observed events to the past ~6000 years and the most recent event to ca. 500-700 years ago; additional dates are pending that will enable us to determine the age of each earthquake. Based on the existing age control, the average earthquake recurrence interval for the SGPFZ is ~1400 years, seven times longer than the average interval for neighboring sections on the southern San Andreas fault. If the earthquakes recorded at the Cabazon site record great San Andreas fault ruptures like those modeled in the 2008 ShakeOut Scenario, much of the vertical slip must occur within the bedrock in the hanging wall or in blind faults in the alluvium below the site. Alternatively, these earthquakes may represent more local, M6-M7 events that rupture the San Gorgonio Pass and possibly portions of the San Andreas fault. Either result requires that other strands of the SGPFZ must be active to maintain slip across this complex system.

  7. Estimating solar access of typical residential rooftops: A case study in San Jose, CA

    SciTech Connect

    Levinson, Ronnen M.; Gupta, Smita; Akbari, Hashem; Pomerantz, Melvin

    2008-03-03

    Shadows cast by trees and buildings can limit the solar access of rooftop solar-energy systems, including photovoltaic panels and thermal collectors. This study characterizes rooftop shading in a residential neighborhood of San Jose, CA, one of four regions analyzed in a wider study of the solar access of California homes.High-resolution orthophotos and LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) measurements of surface height were used to create a digital elevation model of all trees and buildings in a 4 km2 residential neighborhood. Hourly shading of roofing planes (the flat elements of roofs) was computed geometrically from the digital elevation model. Parcel boundaries were used to determine the extent to which roofing planes were shaded by trees and buildings in neighboring parcels.In the year in which surface heights were measured (2005), shadows from all sources ("total shading") reduced the insolation received by S-, SW-, and W-facing residential roofing planes in the study area by 13 - 16percent. Shadows cast by trees and buildings in neighboring parcels reduced insolation by no more than 2percent. After 30 years of simulated maximal tree growth, annual total shading increased to 19 - 22percent, and annual extraparcel shading increased to 3 - 4percent.

  10. Fluvial systems response to rift margin tectonics: Makhtesh Ramon area, southern Israel

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Ben-David, Ram; Eyal, Yehuda; Zilberman, Ezra; Bowman, Dan

    2002-06-01

    The geomorphic evolution of Makhtesh Ramon, a feather-shaped erosional valley, and the Nahal Neqarot drainage system to the south occurred largely in response to tectonic activity along the Dead Sea Rift and its western shoulder. Remnants of Miocene clastic sediments (Hazeva Formation) deposited on an erosional peneplain that formed over this area during the Oligocene epoch provide a datum plane for reconstructing subsequent fluvial evolution. These clastic remnants are presently located on the shoulders of Makhtesh Ramon at various elevations. The peneplain truncating the Makhtesh Ramon block has been tilted 0.7% northeastward since the Pliocene epoch (post-Hazeva Formation), whereas that of the Neqarot syncline, south of the Ramon, has been tilted 1.2%. The elliptical exposure of friable Lower Cretaceous sandstone, exposed in the core of the truncated Ramon structure, governed the development of a new ENE directed (riftward) drainage system through capture of streams that previously drained toward the Mediterranean Sea to the northwest. Incised fluvial gaps in the southern rim of Makhtesh Ramon and alluvial fan relicts within Makhtesh Ramon attest to original drainage into the Makhtesh from the south. Remnants of the Plio-Pleistocene Arava Conglomerate on the eastern end of the Neqarot syncline contain clasts from rocks exposed within Makhtesh Ramon, also indicating that streams flowed into the Makhtesh from the southern Neqarot block through the western gaps, then turning eastward and exiting the Makhtesh via the next (Sha'ar-Ramon) gap to the east. Further down-faulting of the Neqarot block during Mid-Late Pleistocene time led to westward retreat of the Neqarot valley and capture of the last stream flowing northward into the Ramon, leaving the modern Makhtesh Ramon isolated from the southern drainage system.

  11. Analysis of Serpentine Soils in the Presidio of San Francisco, CA

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Matthew, A.; Chan, L.; Cheng, J.; Khalil, M.; White, L. D.; Gonzales, J.; La Force, M. J.

    2004-12-01

    Serpentine soils and their associated serpentine prairie habitats are extremely rare. Within California, serpentine-derived soil comprises only 2,860 km2 of the State and represents less than 1% of the total land surface. The Presidio, a National Park located in San Francisco, CA, hosts several patches of serpentine habitat, which are currently being encroached by non-native plant species. The serpentine soils support threatened and endangered plant species, and are defined by the geochemical properties inherent to the soils. We analyzed the physical and geochemical properties of soils within the West Grassland area of the Presidio to characterize the distribution of serpentine soils across the study site. Our goal is to further understand sub-surface conditions, including depth to bedrock and changes in lithology with depth. Nine locations throughout the West Grassland portion of the Park were randomly selected and hand augured to a depth of 3-5 feet, and soil samples were obtained at 1-foot intervals. Physical properties including color and texture were obtained in the field. Soils overlying serpentine bedrock were found to have a clayey-loam texture. Depth to bedrock was shallow in hilly areas underlain by resistant, hill-forming serpentine bedrock. Auguring further revealed that topographic lows correlated to changes in lithology from soils that were serpentine-derived to sandy loams consistent with sand dune deposits found elsewhere in the vicinity. The geochemistry of selected samples is being analyzed for namely pH, nitrogen, calcium, and magnesium concentrations. Geochemical data will be compared to an existing database and a statistical analysis of the geochemical data will be used to correlate physical and textural data.

  12. The observed relationship between wave conditions and beach response, Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    Hansen, J.E.; Barnard, P.L.

    2009-01-01

    Understanding how sandy beaches respond to storms is critical for effective sediment management and developing successful erosion mitigation efforts. However, only limited progress has been made in relating observed beach changes to wave conditions, with one of the major limiting factors being the lack of temporally dense beach topography and nearshore wave data in most studies. This study uses temporally dense beach topographic and offshore wave data to directly link beach response and wave forcing with generally good results. Ocean Beach is an open coast high-energy sandy beach located in San Francisco, CA, USA. From April 2004 through the end of 2008, 60 three-dimensional topographic beach surveys were conducted on approximately a monthly basis, with more frequent short-term surveys during the winters of 2005-06 and 2006-07. Shoreline position data from the short-term surveys show good correlation with offshore wave height, period, and direction averaged over several days prior to the survey (mean R*=0.54 for entire beach). There is, however, considerable alongshore variation in model performance, with R- values ranging from 0.81 to 0.19 for individual sections of the beach. After wave height, the direction of wave approach was the most important factor in determining the response of the shoreline, followed by wave period. Our results indicate that an empirical predictive model of beach response to wave conditions at Ocean Beach is possible with frequent beach mapping and wave data, and that such a model could be useful to coastal managers.

The random pile of papers was found to have survived the calamity of the Shuttle's disintegration remarkably well. Most of the papers recovered were torn and/or washed out to varying degrees but only mildly charred around the edges. The sheets of paper could be categorized into four groups: Group I: eight sides of paper written while in space in black ink and in pencil--Ramon's personal diary; the writing on these eight sides of paper survived well and is only missing where the pages were torn. Small fragments found in the field were physically matched to holes in the pages thus locating their original positions in the text. Group II: six sides of technical preparation notes written by Ramon before the mission. The writing on these pages was washed out entirely, but much of it was visualized using infrared luminescence. Group III: eight sides of personal notes prepared by Ramon before the mission written in blue ink. The writing on these pages was barely visible to the naked eye and not visualized by infrared luminescence, but was made largely legible by digital enhancement imaging. Group IV: a few sides of printed technical information. These pages were mostly intact and were not examined at length as they contained standard printed material. After completion of examinations at the Questioned Document Laboratory of the Israel Police, the diary was transferred to the Paper Conservation Department of the Israel Museum for preservation and strengthening treatments.

    Ocean Beach in San Francisco, California, contains a persistent erosional section in the shadow of the San Francisco ebb tidal delta and south of Sloat Boulevard that threatens valuable public infrastructure as well as the safe recreational use of the beach. Coastal managers have been discussing potential mediation measures for over a decade, with little scientific research available to aid in decision making. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) initiated the Ocean Beach Coastal Processes Study in April 2004 to provide the scientific knowledge necessary for coastal managers to make informed management decisions. This study integrates a wide range of field data collection and numerical modeling techniques to document nearshore sediment transport processes at the mouth of San Francisco Bay, with emphasis on how these processes relate to erosion at Ocean Beach. The Ocean Beach Coastal Processes Study is the first comprehensive study of coastal processes at the mouth of San Francisco Bay.

    Habitat use has been shown to be an important factor in the bioaccumulation of contaminants in striped bass. This study examines migration in striped bass as part of a larger study investigating bioaccumulation and maternal transfer of xenobiotics to progeny in the San Francisco Estuary system. Habitat use, residence time and spawning migration over the life of females (n = 23) was studied. Female striped bass were collected between Knights Landing and Colusa on the Sacramento River during the spawning runs of 1999 and 2001. Otoliths were removed, processed and aged via otolith microstructure. Subsequently, otoliths were analyzed for strontium/calcium (Sr/Ca) ratio using an electron-microprobe to measure salinity exposure and to distinguish freshwater, estuary, and marine habitat use. Salinity exposure during the last year before capture was examined more closely for comparison of habitat use by the maternal parent to contaminant burden transferred to progeny. Results were selectively confirmed by ion microprobe analyses for habitat use. The Sr/Ca data demonstrate a wide range of migratory patterns. Age of initial ocean entry differs among individuals before returning to freshwater, presumably to spawn. Some fish reside in freshwater year-round, while others return to more saline habitats and make periodic migrations to freshwater. Frequency of habitat shifts and residence times differs among fish, as well as over the lifetime of individual fish. While at least one fish spent its final year in freshwater, the majority of spawning fish spent their final year in elevated salinity. However, not all fish migrated to freshwater to spawn in the previous year. Results from this investigation concerning migration history in striped bass can be combined with contaminant and histological developmental analyses to better understand the bioaccumulation of contaminants and the subsequent effects they and habitat use have on fish populations in the San Francisco Estuary system.

    2007-01-01

    We analyze seismic data from the San Andreas Fault (SAF) near Parkfield, California, to test for annual modulation in seismicity rates. We use statistical analyses to show that seismicity is modulated with an annual period in the creeping section of the fault and a semiannual period in the locked section of the fault. Although the exact mechanism for seasonal triggering is undetermined, it appears that stresses associated with the hydrologic cycle are sufficient to fracture critically stressed rocks either through pore-pressure diffusion or crustal loading/ unloading. These results shed additional light on the state of stress along the SAF, indicating that hydrologically induced stress perturbations of ???2 kPa may be sufficient to trigger earthquakes.

    In 1908, the San Jacinto Mountains were first surveyed for their animal and plant diversity by Joseph Grinnell and Harry Swarth, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, UC Berkeley. In 2008, continuing until 2011, the ecology and stable isotope biogeochemistry of the plants, insects, birds, and mammals is being re-surveyed. Results of carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen isotopes in organic matter show the variation in regional climate and trophic structure. For example, δ15N of plants at more arid stations are more positive by 3-5‰. Plants on westward facing slopes have more negative δ15N (to -6‰) possibly indicating N sources from atmospheric N deposition originating from urban Los Angeles. Isotopic analyses of recent collections will be compared with historic, museum archived specimens of plants and resident birds species. Our initial results show that the carbon isotopic compositions of plants collected in 1908 and during the early part of the 20th century are 1.6‰ enriched in δ13C, as predicted with the rise in industrially influenced atmospheric CO2. Isotopic data will be augmented by species diversity to test the hypothesis that 100 years of human influence has affected the ecosystem in this area and in what manner.

    The NOAA WP-3D aircraft performed several flights in the San Joaquin Valley (SJV), California during the CalNex-2010 (California Research at the Nexus of Air Quality and Climate Change) field project in May-June 2010. SJV is generally a rural valley, with a high concentration of feedlots and agricultural sites as well as urbanized centers such as Fresno and Bakersfield. Preliminary results on size-resolved chemical composition of sub-micron aerosols measured using a compact time-of-flight aerosol mass spectrometer, measurements of trace gases affecting secondary production of aerosols, and FLEXPART back trajectory analyses are presented in order to identify sources of aerosols transported to or produced in the valley. Observed enhancements in various trace gases and aerosol species indicate a mixed influence from urban, industrial, and animal feedlots in the SJV. Three distinct observations suggest a complex transport pattern of pollutants with different origins to and within the valley: 1) CO and NOx mixing ratios were prominent downwind of the urban areas in the valley; 2) SO2, aerosol organics and sulfate were higher closer to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the east of the valley; 3) high concentration of aerosol phase ammonium and nitrate were observed in NH3-rich air masses, directly downwind of the feedlots in the central part of the valley. Aerosol enhancements in each of these air mass categories relative to the background determine the relative contribution and significance of different sources to aerosol loadings in the valley. Differences in VOC measurements and meteorology will be explored to investigate the observed variation in characteristics of organics on different days.

  18. Results of integrated geological-geophysical investigations in Makhtesh Ramon (Israel) aimed to revealing diamondiferous associations

    Analysis of several geological, mineralogical, petrological and geophysical factors makes possible to select the Makhtesh Ramon erosional-tectonic structure (southern Israel) for searching of diamondiferous associations. About 200 kg of geological associations (concentrate) have been withdrawn in this area (during 2001-2002 field works) from the depth of 0.2-1 m for mineralogical-geochemical analyses. The following minerals of the anticipating diamondiferous association were revealed in the selected probes: (first group) - chrome-diopside, orange garnet, bright-crimson pyrope, picroilmenite, moissanite, corundum, perovskite, black spinel, olivine, anatase, titanomagnetite and tourmaline (including black samples). Chrome-diopside as an indicator mineral may be found only in the neighboring zone of basic pipe occurrence. Orange garnet, bright-crimson pyrope and tourmaline also are essential indicators of the presence of diamondiferous association in the studied district. Moissanite and corundum are the rarely occurring minerals indicating certain presence of buried kimberlite pipes. These minerals do not rolled and oxidized that is additional evidence of the neighboring occurrence of the indigenous rocks. Data of electronic microscopy show that the grains of (1) picroilmenite and (2) pyrope contain, respectively: (1) cobalt, chrome, magnesium and nickel and (2) chrome, magnesium and aluminum. These data indicate that both picroilmenite and pyrope have the hyper-abyssal origin. Besides above mentioned minerals, list of indicator minerals (second group) in the probes includes: hexagonal quartz, feldspars, pyroxenes (black, green, dark-green, gray-green, brown-green), magnetite, hematite, ilmenite, galenite, pyrite, limonite, small magnetic spheres (quant. matter), mica, hydro-mica, chromite, leucoxene, zircon, rutile, secondary minerals of cuprum (green and blue), calcite, etc. The last minerals (by their combined considering with the first group) are also indicators of diamond-bearing of the studied area. It should be noted that the amount of these minerals (first and second groups) is extremely high: in 200 kg of the investigated geological concentrate (selected from the loose deposits and conglomerate) till the present time (January 2003) altogether were detected more than 14,000 grains of the proposed diamondiferous association. Identification of small plates of Au and Ag as well as tracing of La, Ce, Th, Nb and Ta also maybe linked with the nearest kimberlite rock occurrence. Analysis of the studied polymineral fractions has been performed using electronic scanning raster microscope CAMSCAN-4DV with energy-dispersion Roentgen micro-analyzer Link AN10000 (binocular microscopes were applied only by initial analyzing). Examination of the performed geophysical investigations: (1a) magnetic field (applied ground observations were integrated with the previous airborn measurements), (1b) magnetic susceptibility measurements; (2) self-potential field and (3) set of physical-chemical examinations of significant features (S2+, CO2-_3, Eh{-}Pt, N0^-_3, Br^-, F^-, I^-, Cl^-, Ca2+, B^+, ClO^-_4, pH, Hg2+, Na^+, K^+, Cd2+, Cu2+ &Pb2+) using ion-selective electrodes (gradient mode was applied) testifies to high probability of discovering diamondiferous pipes (dykes) at the depths from several meters up to 30 meters. The latest important petrological identifications include discovering of blue clay (usually occurring at the top of kimberlite pipe) and yttrium phosphate (it is a known signature of kimberlite associations). Finally, the total number of recognized diamonds exceeds 400 units (size of the largest crystal is about of 1.5 mm). On basis of the mentioned positive features we can unambiguously estimating that the Makhtesh Ramon Canyon is highly perspective area for discovering indigenous diamond-containing targets.

  19. A sediment budget for the southern reach in San Francisco Bay, CA: implications for habitat restoration

    2013-01-01

    The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project is overseeing the restoration of about 6000 ha of former commercial salt-evaporation ponds to tidal marsh and managed wetlands in the southern reach of San Francisco Bay (SFB). As a result of regional groundwater overdrafts prior to the 1970s, parts of the project area have subsided below sea-level and will require between 29 and 45 million m3 of sediment to raise the surface of the subsided areas to elevations appropriate for tidal marsh colonization and development. Therefore, a sufficient sediment supply to the far south SFB subembayment is a critical variable for achieving restoration goals. Although both major tributaries to far south SFB have been seasonally gaged for sediment since 2004, the sediment flux at the Dumbarton Narrows, the bayward boundary of far south SFB, has not been quantified until recently. Using daily suspended-sediment flux data from the gages on Guadalupe River and Coyote Creek, combined with continuous suspended-sediment flux data at Dumbarton Narrows, we computed a sediment budget for far south SFB during Water Years 2009–2011. A Monte Carlo approach was used to quantify the uncertainty of the flux estimates. The sediment flux past Dumbarton Narrows from the north dominates the input to the subembayment. However, environmental conditions in the spring can dramatically influence the direction of springtime flux, which appears to be a dominant influence on the net annual flux. It is estimated that up to several millennia may be required for natural tributary sediments to fill the accommodation space of the subsided former salt ponds, whereas supply from the rest of the bay could fill the space in several centuries. Uncertainty in the measurement of sediment flux is large, in part because small suspended-sediment concentration differences between flood and ebb tides can lead to large differences in total mass exchange. Using Monte Carlo simulations to estimate the random error associated with this uncertainty provides a more statistically rigorous method of quantifying this uncertainty than the more typical “sum of errors” approach. The results of this study reinforce the need for measurement of estuarine sediment fluxes over multiple years (multiple hydrologic conditions) to adequately detail the variability in flux. Additionally, the timing of breaching events for the restoration project could be tied to annual hydrologic conditions to capitalize on increased regional sediment supply.

  20. Channel Morphology Response to Differential Rock Uplift Rates in the San Gabriel Mountains, CA

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Dibiase, R. A.; Whipple, K. X.; Heimsath, A. M.

    2007-12-01

    The San Gabriel Mountains in southern California provide an excellent opportunity to study landscape response to both spatial and temporal rock uplift patterns. Both published low temperature thermochronometry data and our preliminary cosmogenic erosion rate data show a strong gradient in uplift rates from west to east, ranging from <0.1 mm/yr to >1.0 mm/yr respectively. Cosmogenic 10Be in stream sands from 13 basins have already been measured, and 50 more are currently in progress at Purdue University's PRIME Lab. These erosion rates will be a major focus of this study, revealing in detail the nature of the relationship between uplift rates and landscape morphology, including the channel steepness index. These erosion rates also allow for analysis of correlations between rock uplift rate and channel morphology (e.g. width, bed state). Detailed field surveys in summer 2007 conducted with a laser rangefinder provide georeferenced data on channel geometry, bedrock exposure, median and maximum grain size, and valley width for ~25 km of 7 channels, spanning millennial-scale erosion rates from 0.05 to 0.4 mm/yr. Preliminary observations focus mainly on channel response across knickpoints recording landscape response to a temporal increase in rock uplift rate, and detail the partitioning of bedrock and alluvial reaches in over-steepened zones. Much of the relief across knickpoints is expressed in waterfalls and steep bedrock reaches that interrupt alluvial reaches (likely transport-limited). In addition, though channel width appears to decrease with increasing channel steepness index, there is a tendency for over-narrowing in knickzones that is not matched in adjusted high uplift zones. Indeed, knickpoints, especially the tectonically induced knickpoints along the Big Tujunga, consistently produced steep, narrow, inner gorges that are uncommon elsewhere in the landscape, suggestive of a sediment-flux control on channel width. More field data is needed to answer the question of whether this over-narrowing is a transient condition or if it is simply the result of increasing rates of incision.

  2. Assessing the solubility controls on vanadium in groundwater, northeastern San Joaquin Valley, CA

    Wright, Michael T.; Stollenwerk, Kenneth G.; Belitz, Kenneth

    2014-01-01

    The solubility controls on vanadium (V) in groundwater were studied due to concerns over possible harmful health effects of ingesting V in drinking water. Vanadium concentrations in the northeastern San Joaquin Valley ranged from 25 ?g/L) and lowest in samples collected from anoxic groundwater (70% 2VO4?. Adsorption/desorption reactions with mineral surfaces and associated oxide coatings were indicated as the primary solubility control of V5+ oxyanions in groundwater. Environmental data showed that V concentrations in oxic groundwater generally increased with increasing groundwater pH. However, data from adsorption isotherm experiments indicated that small variations in pH (7.48.2) were not likely as an important a factor as the inherent adsorption capacity of oxide assemblages coating the surface of mineral grains. In suboxic groundwater, accurate SM modeling was difficult since Eh measurements of source water were not measured in this study. Vanadium concentrations in suboxic groundwater decreased with increasing pH indicating that V may exist as an oxycationic species [e.g. V(OH)3+]. Vanadium may complex with dissolved inorganic and organic ligands under suboxic conditions, which could alter the adsorption behavior of V in groundwater. Speciation modeling did not predict the existence of V-inorganic ligand complexes and organic ligands were not collected as part of this study. More work is needed to determine processes governing V solubility under suboxic groundwater conditions. Under anoxic groundwater conditions, SM predicts that aqueous V exists as the uncharged V(OH)3 molecule. However, exceedingly low V concentrations show that V is sparingly soluble in anoxic conditions. Results indicated that V may be precipitating as V3+- or mixed V3+/Fe3+-oxides in anoxic groundwater, which is consistent with results of a previous study. The fact that V appears insoluble in anoxic (Fe reducing) redox conditions indicates that the behavior of V is different than arsenic (As) in aquifer systems where the reductive dissolution of Fe-oxides with As adsorbed to the surface is a well-documented mechanism for increasing As concentrations in groundwater. This hypothesis is supported by the relation of V to As concentrations in oxic versus anoxic redox conditions. Sequential extraction procedures (SEP) applied to aquifer material showed that the greatest amount of V was recovered by the nitric acid (HNO3) extract (3771%), followed by the oxalate-ascorbic acid extract (1960%) and the oxalate extract (314%). These results indicate that V was not associated with the solid phase as an easily exchangeable fraction. Although the total amount of V recovered was greatest for the HNO3 extract that targets V adsorbed to sorption sites of crystalline Al, Fe and Mn oxides, the greatest V saturation of sorption sites appeared to occur on the amorphous and poorly crystalline oxide solid phases targeted by the oxalate and oxalate-ascorbic acid extracts respectively. Adsorption isotherm experiments showed no correlation between V sorption and any of the fractions identified by the SEP. This lack of correlation indicates the application of an SEP alone is not adequate to estimate the sorption characteristics of V in an aquifer system.

  3. Sediment Supply Differences Between Soil and Bedrock Dominated Landscapes, San Gabriel Mountains, CA

    The importance of quantifying sediment delivery to channels is clear across disciplines. Processes that produce regolith, transport sediment, and incise valleys are complex, however, and are influenced by tectonic, lithologic, climatic, and anthropogenic factors in poorly constrained ways. As a result of our incomplete understanding of these processes, the extensive information encoded in the topography of a landscape remains out of reach. There remain significant gaps in our understanding of this interface between humans, the atmosphere, biosphere, and lithosphere. One of the most significant gaps is quantifying the controls on soil presence or absence in hilly and mountainous regions and the impacts of these controls on sediment supply to channels. Here we evaluate the controls exerted by erosion on soil production rates in the San Gabriel Mountains, California, measured by in situ produced cosmogenic nuclide (10Be) analyses and two widely used topographic metrics: mean hillslope gradient and the channel steepness index. We present data that show that the transition from soil-mantled to rocky landscapes is set by the maximum rate of soil production. Seventy measurements of 10Be concentrations in detrital sands collected from catchments spanning our field area yield a strikingly clear relationship between mean basin slope and average erosion rate. These data quantify a clear increase of erosion rate with mean slope, from the relatively gentle catchments in the west (10 degrees avg. slope) to the steepest soil mantled catchments near the middle of the range (30 degrees avg. slope). Above about 30 degrees, slopes are at threshold despite a factor of five increase in erosion rates, but become bedrock-dominated. To test controls on the transition from soil to bedrock-dominated landscapes, we measured soil production rates from point samples of bedrock and saprolite in forty-seven soil pits from across different soil-mantled hillslopes spanning the study area. Although these measurements are from ridges responding to a wide range in channel incision rates, they define a robust soil production function for the region. Strikingly, the maximum soil production rate of about 200 m/Ma corresponds to the transition from soil to bedrock-dominated landscapes that is shown clearly by our catchment-averaged rates. We couple these data with measurements of short-lived isotopes (210-Pb and 137-Cs) in soil profiles from several transects to quantify decadal transport processes that deliver sediment to the actively incising channels. Short-lived isotope data show clear increases in delivery rates from low-gradient to high-gradient hillslopes. Finally, the recent fires have devastated our field area and our data provide a critical baseline that we will use to predict and quantify the impact of these fires on sediment delivery to the channels.

    Groundwater quality in the ~2,600 km2 North San Francisco Bay groundwater basins was investigated as part of the Priority Basin Project of the GAMA Program, a collaboration of the California State Water Resources Control Board, U.S. Geological Survey and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Samples from 96 wells and 1 hydrothermal spring were analyzed for water chemistry, isotopic abundances, and dissolved gases. The study, designed to provide a spatially unbiased assessment of untreated groundwater quality in the primary aquifer systems, was based on water-quality and ancillary data from 84 of the wells sampled and water-quality data from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) database. The primary aquifers are defined as those parts of the aquifers corresponding to the perforated intervals of wells listed in the CDPH database. Inorganic constituents with human-health benchmarks were present at high concentrations in 14%, moderate in 35.8%, and low in 50.2% of the primary aquifers. Arsenic, boron, and lead were the trace elements that most frequently occurred at high concentrations. Fluoride is a minor element, and nitrate, a nutrient were present at high concentrations in ~1% of the primary aquifers. In contrast, organic constituents (one or more) with human-health benchmarks were present at high concentrations in 1.4%, moderate in 4.9%, and low in 93.7% (not detected in 64.8%) of the primary aquifers. The high proportion of organic constituents primarily reflected high concentrations of PCE (1.3%), TCE (0.1%), and 1,1-dichloroethene (0.1%). Of the 255 organic constituents analyzed for, 26 constituents were detected. Two organic constituents were frequently detected (detected in 10% or more of samples): the trihalomethane chloroform and the herbicide simazine, but both were detected at low concentrations. In this study, arsenic is the constituent which most frequently exists at high concentrations (about 10%) in the primary aquifers. Natural sources of arsenic include the dissolution of arsenic-rich minerals such as arsenian pyrite, that is a common constituent of shales, and apatite, that is a common constituent of phosphorites. The U.S. EPA MCL for arsenic is 10 ?g/L. Nearly all of the high-concentration arsenic samples were collected from valley wells in the Quaternary alluvium. Groundwater with high arsenic concentrations are grouped into 4 areas: the Santa Rosa Valley, the southern Napa Valley, the Calistoga area, and the Aquas Caliente area. The elevated arsenic concentrations in groundwaters from the Santa Rosa and southern Napa Valley were attributed to the release of arsenic during dissolution of iron or manganese oxides under iron- or manganese-reducing (anoxic) conditions. The elevated arsenic concentrations in the Calistoga and Aquas Caliente areas most likely result from the mixing of shallow groundwater and deep thermal waters, which have elevated temperatures and high pH values. The increase in arsenic solubility with water temperature and alkaline conditions (pH values greater than 8.0) results in arsenic desorption from aquifer sediments or inhibition of arsenic sorption to aquifer sediments.

    In the summer of 2001, a coastal ocean measurement program in the southeastern portion of San Pedro Bay, CA, was designed and carried out. One aim of the program was to determine the strength and effectiveness of local cross-shelf transport processes. A particular objective was to assess the ability of semidiurnal internal tidal currents to move suspended material a net distance across the shelf. Hence, a dense array of moorings was deployed across the shelf to monitor the transport patterns associated with fluctuations in currents, temperature and salinity. An associated hydrographic program periodically monitored synoptic changes in the spatial patterns of temperature, salinity, nutrients and bacteria. This set of measurements show that a series of energetic internal tides can, but do not always, transport subthermocline water, dissolved and suspended material from the middle of the shelf into the surfzone. Effective cross-shelf transport occurs only when (1) internal tides at the shelf break are strong and (2) subtidal currents flow strongly downcoast. The subtidal downcoast flow causes isotherms to tilt upward toward the coast, which allows energetic, nonlinear internal tidal currents to carry subthermocline waters into the surfzone. During these events, which may last for several days, the transported water remains in the surfzone until the internal tidal current pulses and/or the downcoast subtidal currents disappear. This nonlinear internal tide cross-shelf transport process was capable of carrying water and the associated suspended or dissolved material from the mid-shelf into the surfzone, but there were no observation of transport from the shelf break into the surfzone. Dissolved nutrients and suspended particulates (such as phytoplankton) transported from the mid-shelf into the nearshore region by nonlinear internal tides may contribute to nearshore algal blooms, including harmful algal blooms that occur off local beaches.

    Persons who inject drugs (PWID) are at increased risk for blood-borne virus (BBV) infections and overdose resulting from high-risk injecting practices. Studies of prefilled syringe use ([PFSU] using a syringe that already contained drug solution when it was obtained by the user), an injection practice previously described in Eastern Europe, suggest that it increases susceptibility to BBV. However, little is known about this practice in the USA. Data were obtained from an ongoing cohort study of PWID to determine the prevalence and assess correlates of PFSU in San Diego, CA. Baseline interviews assessed socio-demographics and drug use behaviors. Logistic regression was used to identify factors independently associated with ever using a prefilled syringe (yes/no). Participants (n?=?574) were predominately males (73.9%) and white (50.9%) with a mean age of 43.4years (range 18-80); 33.3% reported ever using prefilled syringes, although only 4.9% reported use in the past 6months. In multivariable analyses, PFSU was independently associated with ever having a rushed injection due to police presence [adjusted odds ratio (AOR)?=?2.51, 95% CI 1.66, 3.79], ever being in prison (AOR?=?1.80, 95% CI 1.23, 2.63), injecting most often in public versus private places in the past 6months (AOR?=?1.66, 95% CI 1.11, 2.48), and injecting drugs in Mexico (AOR?=?1.70, 95% CI 1.16, 2.49). Results indicate that a history of PFSU is common and associated with environmental factors that may also increase risk for adverse health outcomes. Studies are needed to better understand PFSU in order to develop interventions to prevent adverse outcomes associated with their use. PMID:26382653

    Canine heartworm is one of the most serious infections primarily affecting domestic dogs but will also infect cats and wild canids. To evaluate the potential of mosquitoes as vectors of dog heartworm, Dirofilaria immitis (Leidy) in San Joaquin County, CA, we collected mosquitoes in 2011 and analyzed for infection with heartworm by using polymerase chain reaction. Of 3,000 mosquito pools (total number of specimens = 36,554), D. immitis DNA was detected in 97 pools of seven species, and the overall minimum infection rate (MIR) for all mosquito species was 2.69: Culex pipiens L. (n = 40; MIR = 3.66), Culex tarsalis Coquillett (n = 25; MIR = 1.89), Culiseta incidens (Thomson) (n = 11; MIR = 2.81), Aedes vexans (Meigen) (n = 7; MIR = 2.18), Aedes melanimon Dyar (n = 5; MIR = 4.64), Culex erythrothorax Dyar (n = 5; MIR = 3.96), and Culiseta inornata (Williston) (n = 4; MIR = 2.65). Cx. pipiens and Cx. tarsalis had the highest number of D. immitis infections and collectively accounted for 67% of all positive pools. Ae. melanimon, Ae. vexans, and Cx. erythrothorax were found to be infected with D. immitis only in rural and agriculture areas, whereas infections in other species were identified in rural and agriculture areas, and urban and residential settings. The majority of positive pools were identified from June through November and peaked during August through October. This is the first report of D. immitis infection in Ae. melanimon, Cx. erythrothorax, Cx. tarsalis, Cs. incidens, and Cs. inornata. The frequent detection of D. immitis in field-collected Cx. pipiens and Cx. tarsalis in concert with their seasonal abundance and widespread distribution suggest a central role for these species in dog heartworm transmission. Other species, including Ae. vexans, Ae. melanimon, Cs. incidens, Cs. inornata, and Cx. erythrothorax, may play a secondary role in transmission. PMID:24843938

  9. Impact of Elevated CO2 on Trace Element Release from Aquifer Sediments of the San Joaquin Valley, CA

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a promising technique for mitigating climate change by storing large volumes of carbon dioxide in deep saline aquifers. In California, the thick marine sediments of the Central and Salinas Valleys have been identified as prime targets for future CO2 storage. However, the potential impacts on water quality of overlying drinking-water aquifers must be studied before CCS can be implemented. In this study, we compare trace element release from San Joaquin Valley aquifer sediments with a wide range of textural and redox properties. Kinetic batch experiments were performed with artificial groundwater continuously equilibrated under CO2-saturated (at 1 atm) and background CO2 (0.002-0.006 atm) conditions, resulting in a shift of nearly 3 pH units. In addition, the reversibility of trace element release was studied by sequentially lowering the CO2 from 1.0 atm to 0.5 atm to background concentrations (0.002-0.006 atm) for CO2-saturated systems in order to mimic the dissipation of a CO2 plume in the aquifer. During exposure to high CO2, a number of elements displayed enhanced release compared to background CO2 experiments (Ca, Mg, Li, Si, B, As, Sr, Ni, Fe, Mn, V, Ti, and Co) with concentrations of As, Fe, and Mn exceeding EPA maximum contaminant levels in some cases. On the other hand, Mo and U showed suppressed release. Most intriguing, many of the elements showing enhanced release displayed at least some degree of irreversibility when CO2 concentrations were decreased to background levels. In fact, in some cases (i.e., for V), an element showed further release when CO2 concentrations were decreased. These results suggest that there may be longer-term effects on groundwater quality that persist even after the CO2 plume has dissipated. Several different mechanisms of trace element release including ion exchange, desorption, and carbonate mineral dissolution are explored. Preliminary modeling results suggest that carbonate mineral dissolution can play a key role in driving trace element release even in sediments where carbonates are in low abundance.

    This special issue contains selected contributions from invited speakers to the 'Polycrystal Modelling with Experimental Integration: A Symposium Honoring Carlos Tom', held as part of the 2011 TMS Annual Meeting and Exhibition, that took place on February 27-March 3, 2011 in San Diego, CA, USA. This symposium honored the remarkable contributions of Dr Carlos N Tom to the field of mechanical behavior of polycrystalline materials, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Throughout his career, Dr Tom has pioneered the theoretical and numerical development of models of polycrystal mechanical behavior, with emphasis on the role played by texture and microstructure on the anisotropic behavior of engineering materials. His many contributions have been critical in establishing a strong connection between models and experiments, and in bridging different scales in the pursuit of robust multiscale models with experimental integration. Among his achievements, the numerical codes that Dr Tom and co-workers have developed are extensively used in the materials science and engineering community as predictive tools for parameter identification, interpretation of experiments, and multiscale calculations in academia, national laboratories and industry. The symposium brought together materials scientists and engineers to address current theoretical, computational and experimental issues related to microstructure-property relationships in polycrystalline materials deforming in different regimes, including the effects of single crystal anisotropy, texture and microstructure evolution. Synergetic studies, involving different crystal plasticity-based models, including multiscale implementations of the latter, and measurements of global and local textures, internal strains, dislocation structures, twinning, phase distribution, etc, were discussed in more than 90 presentations. The papers in this issue are representative of the different length-scales, materials, and experimental and modeling techniques addressed in the symposium. The special issue starts with two papers by Wang et al presenting molecular dynamics studies of the interaction of dislocations with grain and twin boundaries in hcp crystals. The papers by Vu et al and Mercier et al that follow present novel formulations based on non-linear homogenization for viscoelastic and elasto-viscoplastic polycrystals, respectively. Next, two papers by Merkel et al and Beaudoin et al report on synchrotron x-ray measurements of lattice strains in hcp-iron and Al-Li (fcc) polycrystals, respectively, interpreted by means of polycrystal plasticity models. The following two papers by Field et al and Lefebvre et al show how orientation images of polycrystalline cubic metals obtained by electron backscatter diffraction can be used as direct input of models for quantification of dislocation density fields and surface roughness, respectively. Finally, the papers by Jeong et al and Vanna Yang et al show applications of physically-based models of polycrystal plasticity to the analysis of the anisotropic plastic response of stainless steels, and the strain-hardening of Mg-Al alloys, respectively.

    After the 1994 Northridge and the 1995 Kobe earthquakes, the importance of modeling both 3-D crustal structure and subsurface structure has been widely recognized for ground motion evaluation in frequency range responsible for damage to buildings and urban structures. Urban areas often extend over large-scale sediment structures and S-wave velocity is a parameter of highest importance for estimation of ground motion amplification factor. Microtremor array observation is a strong tool to investigate subsurface S-wave velocity structures and has been adopted. In 2000, we conducted microtormor array measurements at several sites in the San Fernando Valley which were severely damaged during the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Formally, Kawase et al.(1998) performed microtremor array measurements at severely damaged sites in the center of San Fernando Valley, Sherman Oaks, and Los Angeles basin during the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Recently, SCEC proposed the crustal velocity structure model in the south California area. The aim of our observation is to obtain spatial variation of S-wave velocity structure in San Fernando Valley by combining with preexisting underground structure information at limited sites and compare it with the damage distribution. There are few underground structure information in San Fernando city area and we try to estimate S-wave velocity structure in that area. We did simultaneous array observations in Sherman Oaks and San Fernando city area By F-K analysis, we estimated phase velocity dispersion. Underground S-wave velocity structure is modeled by fitting the dispersion curve of the observed phase velocity with theoretical one for fundamental Rayleigh wave. We estimate S-wave velocity structures down to about 1km depth at those three sites. Estimated S-wave velocity structures are compared with the SCEC model and those by Kawase et al(1998). There are difference between the SCEC model and our model. Site amplifications from those structure models will be discussed.

    The 550-acre South Bay Asbestos Area site consists of a ring levee in Alviso, San Jose, California. Land use in the area is mixed residential, commercial, light industrial, and agricultural. The ring levee was constructed by the City of San Jose as an emergency measure during a flood in March 1983, but a number of subsequent EPA investigations determined that the levee soil was comprised of 40 percent asbestos. The ROD amends the 1988 ROD for the asbestos-contaminated soil in the ring levee and surrounding area. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil is asbestos, an inorganic. The selected remedial action for the site includes excavating and disposing offsite 25,000 cubic yards of asbestos-contaminated levee soil; and restoring any wetlands areas located under the levee.

    The overall rate of motion along the Pacific-North American plate boundary is well constrained from GPS data, but the distribution of this motion among the various faults of the San Andreas Fault System is not well understood, particularly in southern California. An especially complex and poorly understood part of the southern San Andreas Fault (sSAF) in southern California is along the Banning strand at the northwest end of the Coachella Valley near San Gorgonio Pass. Presently, slip rates for this part of the sSAF are entirely unconstrained, but are critical to earthquake forecasting efforts. Here we examine several displaced features along the Banning strand of the sSAF at a site known as Devers Hill, focusing primarily on Quaternary alluvial fans of varying ages. A first step in accurately deriving a slip rate for this location is to correlate these fan segments across the fault. To compare and correlate different offset features, we use several forms of remote sensing, including 0.5-m-resolution LiDAR data from the B4 dataset, 2- to 5-m-resolution MODIS/ASTER (MASTER) multispectral imagery, and high-resolution aerial photographs. These datasets allow us to quantitatively determine a) surface roughness, b) drainage density and morphology, and c) boulder distributions, sizes and concentrations. The remote sensing data we collect will be compared to independent correlations of offset features based on cosmogenic Be-10 dating of boulder tops and cobbles, as well as field-based measurements of surface characteristics too subtle for remote sensing imagery (see Gold et al. abstract submitted to Session T009, this meeting). We also use the remote-sensing data sets to investigate other types of offset features at other sites along the sSAF.

    The spatial and temporal variation of LURR (Load/Unload Respond Ratio) in California during April 2002 to June 2004 was studied in this paper. The result shows that before the San Simeon earthquake (35.7 N, 121.1 W) on Dec. 22, 2003, Y/Y c anomalous region occurred successively near the epicenter from April 2002 to June 2002, and the maximum anomaly of Y/Y c occurred in May, 2002. The published research work pointed out that the Y/Y c anomaly near the San Simeon earthquake appeared from March, 2002. Compared with the five earthquake cases out of the six with M ? 6.5 in California during the period from 1980 to 2001, the maximum Y/Y c and duration of Y/Y c anomaly before this earthquake are among the normal ranges, but the time delay from the maximum anomaly time to the occurrence time of this earthquake is the longest one. The result also shows that two areas with Y/Y c anomalies occurred from Oct. 2002 and Dec. 2002, respectively. According to statistical characteristics of the relationship between Y/Y c anomalies and the coming earthquakes, the seismic tendency in California was discussed in this paper.

    The Sharpe Army Depot (SHAD), consisting of 720 acres located in San Joaquin County, California, is on the National Priorities List. The site has served as a storage, receiving, packaging, and shipping facility since 1941. In the late 1940s the Depot also served as a maintenance facility for heavy equipment. Available data indicate that the primary contaminant sources are associated with past heavy equipment and aircraft-maintenance operations. Contaminants associated with SHAD include trichloroethene, arsenic, selenium, and bromacil (a herbicide). The site is considered to be of potential public health concern because of the risk to human health caused by the possibility of exposure to hazardous substances via ingestion, dermal contact, or inhalation of contaminants in ground water, subsurface soil, soil-gas, and food-chain entities.

    Decommissioned agricultural salt ponds within south San Francisco Bay, California, are in the process of being converted to habitat for the benefit of wildlife as well as water management needs and recreation. Little is known of baseline levels of contaminants in these ponds, particularly mercury (Hg), which has a well established legacy in the Bay. In this study we described spatial and short-term temporal variations in sediment Hg species concentrations within and among the Alviso and Eden Landing salt ponds in the southern region of San Francisco Bay. We determined total Hg (Hgt) and methylmercury (MeHg) in the top 5 cm of sediment of most ponds in order to establish baseline conditions prior to restoration, sediment Hgt concentrations in a subset of these ponds after commencement of restoration, and variation in MeHg concentrations relative to sediment Hgt, pH, and total Fe concentrations and water depth and salinity in the subset of Alviso ponds. Inter-pond differences were greatest within the Alviso pond complex, where sediment Hgt concentrations averaged (arithmetic mean) 0.74 ??g/g pre and 1.03 ??g/g post-restoration activity compared to 0.11 ??g/g pre and post at Eden Landing ponds. Sediment Hgt levels at Alviso were fairly stable temporally and spatially, whereas MeHg levels were variable relative to restoration activities across time and space. Mean (arithmetic) sediment MeHg concentrations increased (2.58 to 3.03 ng/g) in Alviso and decreased (2.20 to 1.03 ng/g) in Eden Landing restoration ponds during the study. Differences in MeHg levels were related to water depth and pH, but these relationships were not consistent between years or among ponds and were viewed with caution. Factors affecting MeHg levels in these ponds (and in general) are highly complex and require in-depth study to understand.

    Predicting beach response on an event scale is extremely difficult due to highly variable spatial and temporal conditions, lack of data on antecedent beach morphology, generic model shortcomings, and uncertainty of local forcing parameters. Each beach system is unique and classical beach erosion models may not be applicable to many high-energy beaches, especially those receiving large long-period waves. Therefore, developing an empirical model is the best way to predict future beach response at a given site. Based on 12 closely spaced (temporally) GPS topographic surveys during the winter of 2005-2006 at Ocean Beach, in San Francisco, California, we have developed a predictive empirical model that relates sub-aerial beach response to observed wave height, period, and direction. The model will provide important information to coastal managers, who will be able to better predict and mitigate possible loss from a forecasted wave event. Ocean Beach, located immediately south of the Golden Gate in San Francisco, is a high-energy, intermediate- slope beach that is exposed to waves generated in both the North and South Pacific. Winter breaking wave heights frequently reach 4 m and can exceed 7 m, with periods sometimes greater than 20 s. Our observations demonstrate that large seasonal variations in the sub-aerial beach profile are likely forced by several single large wave events. These events have led to the partial destruction of a recreational parking lot at the south end of the beach where an erosion hot spot is currently located, and continued erosion will threaten other parts of public infrastructure. This study, in combination with other ongoing research at Ocean Beach, will provide valuable insight that will not only aid local personnel in their management decisions but also contribute to a better understanding of sediment transport at high-energy beaches.

    San Francisco Bay is one of the largest estuaries along the U.S. West Coast and is linked to the Pacific Ocean through the Golden Gate, a 100 m deep bedrock inlet. A coupled wave, flow and sediment transport model is used to quantify the sediment linkages between San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate, and the adjacent open coast. Flow and sediment transport processes are investigated using an ensemble average of 24 climatologically derived wave cases and a 24.8 h representative tidal cycle. The model simulations show that within the inlet, flow and sediment transport is tidally dominated and driven by asymmetry of the ebb and flood tides. Peak ebb velocities exceed the peak flood velocities in the narrow Golden Gate channel as a result of flow convergence and acceleration. Persistent flow and sediment gyres at the headland tips are formed that limit sediment transfer from the ebb-tidal delta to the inlet and into the bay. The residual transport pattern in the inlet is dominated by a lateral segregation with a large ebb-dominant sediment transport (and flow) prevailing along the deeper north side of the Golden Gate channel, and smaller flood dominant transports along the shallow southern margin. The seaward edge of the ebb-tidal delta largely corresponds to the seaward extent of strong tidal flows. On the ebb-tidal delta, both waves and tidal forcing govern flow and sediment transport. Wave focusing by the ebb-tidal delta leads to strong patterns of sediment convergence and divergence along the adjacent Ocean Beach.

    Many East San Francisco Bay Area public parks are heavily populated by parents and their children and generally experience high levels of pedestrian traffic during the day, particularly during summer months. Consequently, if ever any of these visitors become thirsty they are likely to drink from the many public water fountains that exist. As most of the parks were established long before lead-related legislation was put in place, and their associated plumbing systems are very old, we decided to collect samples from a variety of locations to determine their lead concentration levels. Our rationale was that the public is generally not well informed about possible lead contamination related to a seemingly innocent source, namely drinking water fountains at parks, or about and the potential hazards related to lead consumption, and that our research could serve as a means of helping to increase public understanding of this important issue. This is especially important given that many young children populate parks during summer months and, according to the EPA, lead consumption in infants and young children is known to cause physical and mental development problems. With this situation in mind, our team collected multiple samples from water fountains in five different East Bay parks: Piedmont, San Antonio, Dracena, Mosswood, and Lake Merritt. Later these samples were analyzed using a spectrophotometer. Preliminary results indicate that lead concentration levels in waters issuing from fountains in all of the parks we collected samples from exceed the 15 ppb action limit set by the EPA for in-home tap water. Samples collected from the park in Piedmont yielded values as high as 35 ppb, greater than twice the EPA limit. Given these results, it is with most pressing urgency that we continue this study, and that we publicize our results as soon as possible so that the communities using these parks can decide for themselves whether or not to take the risks associated with drinking water from these fountains, and what steps they can take to improve current conditions.

    Since 2002 the Careers in Science (CiS) intern program has monitored Ocean Beach in San Francisco, California for the population of Emerita analoga (Pacific Mole Crab) as part of a partnership program with the Long-term Monitoring Program and Experiential Training for Students (LiMPETS). LiMPETS is an organization that conducts citizen science with Bay Area youth such as the CiS interns. We specifically assist in the collection of Pacific Mole Crab population statistics at Ocean Beach during the summer from June through August. The purpose of collecting Pacific Mole Crabs is to monitor Profilicollis spp. (Acanthocephalan parasites) - to which Pacific Mole Crabs serve as intermediate hosts - and to learn more about our environment as Pacific Mole Crabs are indicator species. During our collections at Ocean Beach we record size, sex, and number of individuals at specific transects. We then take a random sample from the day, return to the lab, and record their sizes, sexes, and Acanthocephalan parasite load. The results of the collection and dissections are then entered into the LiMPETS online database for scientist and researchers to use. Our project will focus on correlations relating to the data collected (Pacific Mole Crab population, parasite load, abiotic and biotic factors, et cetera).

    Big Bear Valley (elevation ~2060 m) is situated in the east-west trending San Bernardino Mountains of California, close to the transition between Mediterranean and Mojave Desert ecoregions. Baldwin Lake is the older of two basins occupying the valley, with a sediment sequence that demonstrates a high rate of deposition and an apparent synchronicity with marine isotope and global paleoclimate records. Chronology has been established with both AMS radiocarbon and infra-red stimulated luminescence (IRSL) dates. This offers the potential to further investigate paleoclimate change over the past c. 100 ka for Southern California at a high temporal resolution. Baldwin Lake's basal date of 95.9 +/- 6.7 ka is derived from IRSL on feldspar grains, placing the onset of sedimentation into the modern basin during cool MIS 5(b). Phases of high productivity in the lake, including values of up to 35% total organic matter and marl facies, correlate with warm events MIS 5(a) and MIS 3. Glacial stages are largely defined by inorganic sedimentation, though depositional regime varies between high-energy MIS 5(b) and MIS 4, and a relatively quiescent MIS 2. Future work will reconstruct vegetation change prior to MIS 1, in order to elucidate millennial-scale changes in alpine groundcover and forests in Southern California during these globally pervasive Stages.

    Elliot Ahumada, Esosa Oghogho, Samantha Nguyen, Humberto Bracho, Diego Quintero, Ashanti Johnson and Kevin Cuff Lake Merritt is a tidal lagoon in the center of Oakland, California, just east of Downtown. Water quality at Lake Merritt has been a major concern for community members and researchers for many years (Pham 200X). Results of past research lead to recommendations to lengthen a channel that connects Lake Merritt with the San Francisco Bay to improve water flow and quality. In 2012 the City of Oakland responded to these recommendations by initiating the creation of a 230-meter long channel. In conducting our research we use a water quality index that takes into account measurements of pH, temperature, water hardness (dissolved solids), ammonia, salinity, dissolved oxygen, and nitrate. Newly collected data is then compared with that collected by Pham using comparable parameters to assess the impact of recent changes at the Lake on its overall water quality. In addition, we measured the abundance of aquatic species at four different sites within the Lake. Preliminary results suggest that an increase in the abundance of fish and improved overall water quality have resulted from channel extension at Lake Merritt.

    Introduction Young injection drug users (IDU, under age 30) often inject with other IDU, creating an environment for risk of blood-borne disease transmission through sharing of needles and drug preparation equipment. Epidemiologic studies rely on self reported injection behavior data for measures of transmission risk, therefore we sought to quantify the degree of concordance of reported injecting risk behaviors between injecting dyads. Methods From May, 2006 through 2013 we enrolled 72 injecting dyads in San Francisco, California, who were hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA discordant. Each partnership was followed prospectively for up to six months. Monthly interviews from each partner were date-matched and responses to relationship characteristics and risk behavior questions were compared. Concordance of reporting was estimated with the concordance correlation coefficient for longitudinal data (CCC) and the prevalence adjusted bias adjusted kappa (PABAK). Results Participants had a median age of 26 (IQR: 23, 28) years and median years injecting of 7.0 (IQR: 3.0,10.6). Thirty-eight percent of the injecting dyads were also sexual partners. Concordance levels were highest for partnership characteristics, such as length of acquaintance, number of days cohabitating, and sexual intercourse in the past month (CCC = 0.95; 0.82, and 0.90, respectively). Shared injection risk behaviors such as injecting with the HCV+ partners previously used syringe and using contaminated injection preparation equipment had slight to fair agreement (CCC = 0.22; 0.23; PABAK = 0.43,0.36, respectively). Conclusions Concordance levels ranged from low to high. Potential sources of measurement error for low agreement items include recall and social-desirability biases and question interpretation.

    Nitrification is the sole link between nitrogen inputs and losses in marine ecosystems, and understanding the microbial ecology and biogeochemistry of nitrification is therefore crucial for understanding how aquatic ecosystems process nitrogen. Recently-discovered ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA), rather than ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB), appear to drive ammonia oxidation in many ecosystems, including much of the ocean. However, few studies have investigated these microbes in estuary waters, despite the fact nitrogen concentrations in estuaries are often far higher than the ocean, and can cause drastic ecological harm. We sought to determine the roles of AOA and AOB in driving pelagic nitrification throughout San Francisco Bay, by combining biogeochemical rate measurements with a suite of measurements of the abundance and diversity of AOA and AOB. It addition to traditional functional gene analyses and high-throughput 16S amplicon sequencing, we developed novel qPCR assays to selectively target the ammonia-oxidizing clades found in this estuary, which gave insights into clade-specific distributional patterns. Our biogeochemical data suggest a sizable fraction of ammonium in the bay is oxidized in the water column, likely by AOA, with nitrification in bottom waters also oxidizing a substantial portion of the ammonium exuded by sediments. Generally, Sacramento River waters and Suisun Bay bottom waters had the highest nitrification rates. AOA outnumbered AOB at most stations, and were present in high abundance at both the marine and freshwater ends of the estuary, while AOB abundance was highest in the low-salinity, brackish regions. Different archaeal clades were found at either end of the estuary, suggesting strong niche partitioning along the salinity gradient, with a third clade present largely in brackish waters. This work helps to assess the ability of ammonia-oxidizing microbes in estuaries to transform nitrogen prior to water discharge into the sea, and furthers our understanding of the roles of specific clades of these microbes in complex estuarine ecosystems.

    Draining peatlands for agricultural cultivation creates an ecosystem shift with some of the fastest rates and largest magnitudes of carbon loss attributable to land-use change, yet peatland drainage is practiced around the world due to the high economic benefit of fertile soil. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta in California was drained at the end of the 19th century for agriculture and human settlement, and as a result, has lost 5-8m of peat soil due to oxidation. To reverse subsidence and capture carbon, there is increasing interest in converting drained agricultural land-uses back to flooded conditions to inhibit further peat oxidation. However, this method remains relatively untested at the landscape-scale. This study analyzed the short-term effects of drained to flooded land-use conversion on the balance of carbon, water, and energy over two years at two landscapes in the Delta. We used the eddy covariance method to compare CO2, CH4, H2O, and energy fluxes under the same meteorological conditions in two different land-use types: a drained pasture grazed by cattle, and a flooded newly-converted rice paddy. By analyzing differences in the fluxes from these two land-use types we determined that water management and differences in the plant canopy both play a fundamental role in governing the seasonal pattern and the annual budgets of CO2 and CH4 fluxes at these two sites. While the pasture was a source of carbon to the atmosphere in both years, the rice paddy captured carbon through NEE, even after considering losses from CH4. Especially during the fallow winter months, flooding the soil at the rice paddy inhibited loss of CO2 through ecosystem respiration when compared with the carbon exchange from the drained pasture.

    Numerous studies have shown that one of the best ways to draw students into geoscience programs is to expose them and their teachers to research projects designed to investigate issues relevant to their lives and communities. To be most effective, involvement in these projects should begin at the pre-college level and continue throughout their college career. Recognizing the importance of genuine research experiences, the Department of Geology at California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB), with support from the National Science Foundation's Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences program, provides research participation opportunities for teachers and students from the Bakersfield City School District and the Kern High School District. Both districts have a high percentage of low-income and minority students that normally would not consider a degree or career in the geosciences. The project centers around a four-week summer research program and follow-up activities during the school year. The research investigates the climate history of the southern San Joaquin Valley as well as the frequency of flooding in the valley. Many teachers and students are familiar with periodic flooding from personal experience and are aware of the larger issue of climate change in the past and present from news reports. Thus, they can directly relate to the relevance of the research. The project draws on the faculty's expertise in paleoclimatology and geochemistry and takes advantage of CSUB's existing research facilities. Sediments in the dry lake basins of Buena Vista Lake and Kern Lake preserve a record of the regional climate history and flooding of the Kern River and its tributaries. In the first year of the project, 6 teachers and 10 high school students worked with CSUB faculty and students. Three cores from the lake basins were collected. The cores were analyzed using established geophysical, geochemical, lithological, and micropaleontological techniques. The analyses of the sediment samples range from simple tasks such as core descriptions or total organic carbon analysis to complex procedures such as the separation, identification, and chemical analysis of ostracode shells. Thus, the participants can find tasks appropriate to their diverse backgrounds and experience. CSUB students served as mentors and role models for high school students. Surveys conducted before and after the summer program indicate that knowledge of climate change and local geology of both teachers and students increased. Student's attitudes towards the geosciences and possible geoscience careers improved.

    Hydrocarbon contaminants are ubiquitous in urban aquatic ecosystems, and the ability of some microbial strains to degrade certain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is well established. However, detrimental effects of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination on nondegrader microbial populations and photosynthetic organisms have not often been considered. In the current study, fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) biomarkers in the sediment record were used to assess historical impacts of petroleum contamination on microbial and/or algal biomass in South San Francisco Bay, CA, USA. Profiles of saturated, branched, and monounsaturated fatty acids had similar concentrations and patterns downcore. Total PAHs in a sediment core were on average greater than 20× higher above ∼200 cm than below, which corresponds roughly to the year 1900. Isomer ratios were consistent with a predominant petroleum combustion source for PAHs. Several individual PAHs exceeded sediment quality screening values. Negative correlations between petroleum contaminants and microbial and algal biomarkers – along with high trans/cis ratios of unsaturated FA, and principle component analysis of the PAH and fatty acid records – suggest a negative impacts of petroleum contamination, appearing early in the 20th century, on microbial and/or algal ecology at the site.

    Coastal managers have faced increasing pressure to manage their resources wisely over the last century as a result of heightened development and changing environmental forcing. It is crucial to understand seasonal changes in beach volume and shape in order to identify areas vulnerable to accelerated erosion. Shepard (1950) was among the first to quantify seasonal beach cycles. Sonu and Van Beek (1971) and Wright et al. (1985) described commonly occurring beach states. Most studies utilize widest spaced 2-D cross shore profiles or shorelines extracted from aerial photographs (e.g. Winant et al. 1975; Aubrey, 1979, Aubrey and Ross, 1985; Larson and Kraus, 1994; Jimenez et al., 1977; Lacey and Peck, 1998; Guillen et al., 1999; Norcorss et al., 2002) to analyzed systematic changes in beach evolution. But with the exception of established field stations, such as Duck, NC (Birkemeier and Mason, 1984), ans Hazaki Oceanographical Research Station (HORS) in Japan (Katoh, 1997), there are very few beach change data sets with high temporal and spatial resolutions (e.g. Dail et al., 2000; Ruggiero et al., 2005; Yates et al., in press). Comprehensive sets of nearshore morphological data and local in situ measurements outside of these field stations are very rare and virtually non-existent high-energy coasts. Studied that have attempted to relate wave statistics to beach morphology change require some knowledge of the nearshore wave climate, and have had limited success using offshore measurement (Sonu and Van Beek, 1971; Dail et al., 2000). The primary objective of this study is to qualitatively compare spatially variable nearshore wave predictions to beach change measurements in order to understand the processes responsible for a persistent erosion 'hotspot' at Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA. Local wave measurements are used to calibrate and validate a wave model that provides nearshore wave prediction along the beach. The model is run for thousands of binned offshore wave conditions to help isolate the effects of offshore wave direction and period on nearshore wave predictions. Alongshore varying average beach change statistics are computed at specific profile locations from topographic beach surveys and lidar data. The study area is located in the San Francisco Bight in central California. Ocean Beach is a seven kilometer long north-south trending sandy coastline located just south of the entrance to the San Francisco Bay Estuary (Figure 1). It contains an erosion hotspot in the southern part of the beach which has resulted in damage to local infrastructure and is the cause of continued concern. A wide range of field data collection and numerical modeling efforts have been focused here as part of the United States Geological Survey's (USGS) San Francisco Bight Coastal Processes Study, which began in October 2003 and represents the first comprehensive study of coastal processes at the mouth of San Francisco Bay. Ocean Beach is exposed to very strong tidal flows, with measured currents often in excess of 1 m/s at the north end of the beach. Current profiler measurements indicate that current magnitudes are greater in the northern portion of the beach, while wave energy is greater in the southern portion where erosion problems are greatest (Barnard et al., 2007). The sub-aerial beach volume fluctuates seasonally over a maximum envelope of 400,000 m3 for the seven kilometer stretch (Barnard et al, 2007). The wave climate in the region is dominated by an abundance of low frequency energy (greater than 20 s period) and prevailing northwest incident wave angles. The application of a wave model to the region is further complicated by the presence of the Farallon Islands 40 kilometers west, and a massive ebb tidal delta at the mouth of San Francisco Bay (~150 km2), which creates complicated refraction patterns as wave energy moves from offshore Ocean Beach; however the cost and threat of the energetic nearshore environment have limited the temporal and spatial resolution of these measurements. Applying numerical models to predict wave and current patterns along the beach can help supplement the filed data that exists and provide opportunities to make prediction about the impacts of changing environmental forcing.

    The San Diego/Tijuana US-Mexico border crossing at the San Ysidro Port of Entry (POE) is the world's busiest international land border crossing (GSA, 2013). San Ysidro, California, is the US community immediately adjacent to the border crossing. More than 90% of San Ysidro residents are Hispanic, and the average household income is less than 60% of the San Diego regional average. This study investigated the San Ysidro POE as a source of traffic-related air pollutants in San Ysidro, especially in relation to wind direction and northbound vehicle wait times. The pollutants ultrafine particulate matter (UFP), black carbon (BC), and particulate matter <2.5 μm in diameter (PM2.5) were periodically sampled through the course of 2010 at four rooftop locations: one commercial establishment near the POE, two elementary schools in San Ysidro, and a coastal estuary reference site. Weather data from two nearby sites and northbound border wait times were also collected. Results indicate consistently higher daytime BC and UFP concentrations at the measurement sites near the POE. Pollution concentrations were higher during low wind speeds or when wind was blowing from the POE towards San Ysidro. In February, March and November measurements, black carbon pollution appeared to be significantly positively associated with the POE northbound wait times when the wind direction was blowing from the POE towards San Ysidro or during low wind speeds, but not when the wind direction was from the west/northwest towards the POE. This pilot study is the first to investigate the potential effect of the POE, especially the long northbound traffic delays, on the nearby community of San Ysidro. Disparities in traffic exposures are an environmental justice issue and this should be taken into account during planning and operation of POEs.

    This Interim Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the contamination at the Puente Valley Operable Unit (PVOU) located within the San Gabriel Valley Superfund Site in Los Angeles County, California. This ROD addresses ground water contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The selected remedy is containment of ground water contaminated with VOCs in the shallow and intermediate zones at the mouth of Puente Valley to prevent further migration of existing ground-water contamination. This remedy includes performance criteria that will require extraction and treatment of contaminated ground water at certain locations along the downgradient edge of the contamination and will require continued monitoring and evaluation at other locations. Treated ground water will be provided to local water purveyors or discharged to Puente Creek, immediately upstream of San Jose Creek. In addition, this remedy includes monitoring in the shallow, intermediate, and deep ground-water zones at mid-valley and at the mouth of the valley.

    Concentrations of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were measured in 169 avian eggs. We analyzed randomly collected eggs of two species of piscivorous birds: Caspian tern (Sterna caspia) (n = 78) and Forster's tern (Sterna forsteri) (n = 76). We also analyzed fail-to-hatch eggs from two species protected under the Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973, that breed in the San Francisco Bay region: the piscivorous California Least tern (Sterna antillarum brownii) (n = 11) and the omnivorous California Clapper rail (Rallus longirostris obsoletus) (n = 4). San Francisco Bay eggs were collected annually for four years (2000-2003), and additional 20 eggs were collected and analyzed from Gray's Harbor, Washington in 2001. Geometric mean PBDE concentrations did not significantly differ in the three tern species, but concentrations in eggs from the fail to hatch California Clapper rail eggs were significantly lower than those found in the randomly collected tern eggs. Median concentrations of ???PBDEs in Caspian tern eggs for 2000-2003 were 2410, 4730, 3720 and 2880 ng/g lipid weight (lw), respectively, in Forster's terns 1820, 4380, 5460 and 3600 ng/g lw, respectively, and in California Least terns for 2001 and 2002 were 5060 and 5170 ng/g lw, respectively. In contrast, median ???PBDEs concentration in California Clapper rail eggs for 2001 was 379 ng/g lw. Five PBDEs were the major congeners found and decreased in the order BDE-47, -99, -100, -153, and -154. BDE-32, -28, -71, -66, -85, -183 were less prevalent, minor congeners, as was BDE-209, which was measured in a subset of samples. PBDE concentrations in bird eggs from San Francisco Bay were site related. There was no significant difference in PBDE concentrations in Caspian tern eggs from San Francisco Bay and Gray's Harbor, WA. Average PBDE concentrations in eggs did not significantly increase over the period 2000-2003. ?? 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

  1. Peat accretion histories during the past 6,000 years in marshes of the Sacramento-San Joaquin delta, CA, USA

    Drexler, Judith Z.; de Fontaine, Christian S.; Brown, Thomas A.

    2009-01-01

    The purpose of this study was to determine how vertical accretion rates in marshes vary through the millennia. Peat cores were collected in remnant and drained marshes in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta of California. Cubic smooth spline regression models were used to construct age-depth models and accretion histories for three remnant marshes. Estimated vertical accretion rates at these sites range from 0.03 to 0.49 cm year-1. The mean contribution of organic matter to soil volume at the remnant marsh sites is generally stable (4.73% to 6.94%), whereas the mean contribution of inorganic matter to soil volume has greater temporal variability (1.40% to 7.92%). The hydrogeomorphic position of each marsh largely determines the inorganic content of peat. Currently, the remnant marshes are keeping pace with sea level rise, but this balance may shift for at least one of the sites under future sea level rise scenarios.

    Not Available

    1992-03-04

    The 13.19-acre Rhone-Poulenc/Zoecon site is located in East Palo Alto, San Mateo County, California. The site is composed of at least 12 separately owned parcels that include a 5.19-acre former pesticide manufacturing plant, a sludge pond, and a chemical storage facility owned by Sandoz Crop Protection Corporation. In 1980, an investigation by the new site owners revealed severe contamination of soil and ground water with arsenic, which resulted from improper handling of pesticides during unloading. The ROD addresses the contaminated soil and ground water in the upland operable unit. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water include arsenic, mercury, selenium, lead and cadmium. The selected remedial action for the site at the Sandoz and Bains properties includes removing and disposing of offsite soil from accessible areas with arsenic levels greater than 5,000 mg/kg and installing a cap; and removing or paving over soil.

  3. Sierran affinity (?) metasedimentary rocks beneath the Coast Range Ophiolite of the Sierra Azul block east of the San Andreas fault, Santa Clara County, CA

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    2011-12-01

    The Loma Prieta slate (LPS) is a <100 m thick slice of highly flattened and stretched, pebbly to shaly metasedimentary rocks exposed for a length of 700 m at Loma Prieta Peak, east of the San Andreas fault in the southern Santa Cruz Mountains. The LPS occurs along a low-dipping segment of the NW-trending, dextral-reverse Sargent fault, which places the slate and overlying Middle Jurassic Coast Range Ophiolite in the hanging wall, eastward over lower Eocene strata. The LPS and overlying Coast Range Ophiolite, in turn, form the base of a 60-80 km long fault block east of the San Andreas fault, overlain by Jurassic-lower Miocene marine strata that together define the Sierra Azul structural block (SAB). These rocks overlie terranes of the Franciscan Complex. The Sargent fault bisects the SAB section and is truncated along-strike and at depth, by the San Andreas fault. Reconstituted clastic grains of the LPS have dominant rhyo-dacitic and granitic sources and felsitic to granophyric grains preserve K-feldspar. Newly crystallized phengitic mica, chlorite and speculatively, incipient pumpellyite, are present in the LPS. No new high P/T metamorphic minerals are petrographically discernible, seemingly distinguishing the LPS from known cataclastic Franciscan Complex rocks structurally beneath the SAB. The LPS instead, has been proposed to correlate with the Jurassic arc-derived Mariposa Formation (MFS) in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, metamorphosed during the Nevadan orogeny. The correlation, however, has been problematic due to a lack of age control on the LPS, its limited surface distribution and its wide separation from the MFS. To test the correlation, we dated detrital zircons from the LPS at University of Arizona's LA-ICPMS lab and compared the results with detrital zircon data from the MFS (Snow and Ernst, 2008, GSA Special Paper 438). Weighted mean age calculations indicate a youngest zircon age cluster at about 152.52 Ma for the LPS, which indicates its maximum depositional age. The large number of zircons in the youngest LPS age cluster (31 out of 87) may reflect a contemporaneous volcanic source, consistent with the petrography. Zircon data for the MFS indicate earliest possible deposition at about 152 1 Ma. Zircon ages >200 Ma are generally similar in the LPS and MFS, with minor age groupings at roughly 950-1450 and 1750-2100 Ma. As with the MFS, the LPS data suggest a major influence from sources in the Sierra Nevada arc, with minimal influences from sources in the Klamath Mountains and Nevada miogeocline. Available detrital zircon data require Cretaceous or younger maximum depositional ages for metaclastic terranes of the Franciscan Complex. The LPS detrital zircon data thus, are in reasonable agreement with the MFS data and permit interpretation of the LPS as displaced northward by the San Andreas and Hayward-Calaveras faults from the southwestern Great Valley margin.

  4. Waves and tides responsible for the intermittent closure of the entrance of a small, sheltered tidal wetland at San Francisco, CA

    Crissy Field Marsh (CFM; http://www.nps.gov/prsf/planyourvisit/crissy-field-marsh-and-beach.htm) is a small, restored tidal wetland located in the entrance to San Francisco Bay just east of the Golden Gate. The marsh is small but otherwise fairly typical of many such restored wetlands worldwide. The marsh is hydraulically connected to the bay and the adjacent Pacific Ocean by a narrow sandy channel. The channel often migrates and sometimes closes completely, which effectively blocks the tidal connection to the ocean and disrupts the hydraulics and ecology of the marsh. Field measurements of waves and tides have been examined in order to evaluate the conditions responsible for the intermittent closure of the marsh entrance. The most important factor found to bring about the entrance channel closure is the occurrence of large ocean waves. However, there were also a few closure events during times with relatively small offshore waves. Examination of the deep-water directional wave spectra during these times indicates the presence of a small secondary peak corresponding to long period swell from the southern hemisphere, indicating that CFM and San Francisco Bay in general may be more susceptible to long period ocean swell emanating from the south or southwest than the more common ocean waves coming from the northwest. The tidal records during closure events show no strong relationship between closures and tides, other than that closures tend to occur during multi-day periods with successively increasing high tides. It can be inferred from these findings that the most important process to the intermittent closure of the entrance to CFM is littoral sediment transport driven by the influence of ocean swell waves breaking along the CFM shoreline at oblique angles. During periods of large, oblique waves the littoral transport of sand likely overwhelms the scour potential of the tidal flow in the entrance channel. ?? 2011.

  6. Aircraft Pilot Observation (APOB) Measurements of Summertime Ozone in the Residual Layer during 2008 - 2013 in the San Joaquin Valley (SJV), CA.

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Mahmud, A.; Di, P.; Avise, J.; DaMassa, J.; Kaduwela, A. P.

    2014-12-01

    The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has been operating the Aircraft Pilot Observation (APOB) campaign since 2008 to measure ozone in the upper air, mostly in the residual layer, with an objective to understand the impact of residual layer ozone on daily surface ozone concentrations in the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) where both federal and state standards are often violated. A contracted flight operates daily between 5 - 6 AM over Fresno during the summer months from June - September, and makes continuous measurements of ozone throughout the residual layer up to ~3000 m above ground. The objectives of the current study are to 1) examine the correlation between the residual layer ozone and the surface level 1-hr and/or 8-hr maximum ozone concentrations by analyzing the 2008 - 2013 APOB dataset, and 2) evaluate an air quality model's ability to capture vertical ozone profiles, especially in the residual layer, by comparing the modeling results with the measurements. Preliminary analysis shows that the summertime annual median ozone in the residual layer (between 150 - 3000 m above ground) has decreased by approximately 36% over the 2008 - 2013 period. The time series of daily 1-hr and 8-hr maximum ozone concentrations at a downtown Fresno monitoring site, and daily maximum ozone concentrations in the residual layer show similar patterns, although ozone in the residual layer shows stronger decreasing trends compared to the surface measurements. This, perhaps, indicates that the ozone in the residual layer over Fresno contains contributions from surrounding areas during the daytime. In addition, the ozone trend in the residual layer follows a similar decreasing trend as the reduction of basin-wide emissions of ozone precursors such as NOx and VOCs, which have decreased by 31% and 8%, respectively over the 2005 - 2010 period. The US EPA's CAMQ model will be utilized to model ozone concentrations during the summer months of 2012, and the vertical distributions will be compared with those obtained from the APOB measurements to determine how well the model predicts the measured profiles. Potential improvements to the modeling will be tested if found necessary. Keywords: residual layer, ozone, San Joaquin Valley, CMAQ

    The Vedanta marsh trench site is located along the San Andreas fault (SAF) near the town of Olema approximately 45 km north of San Francisco. Excavations into the Vedanta marsh provided exposures of the sediment across the SAF zone that preserves a nearly continuous earthquake record over the past 3,000 years. Evidence for thirteen earthquakes was identified from the main fault zone based on fault outward splays, fault upward terminations, fissures, colluvial wedges, and soft-sediment deformation. The deposits exposed in the trenches contain abundant organic material including peat, charcoal, and macrofossils such as wood, twigs, and leaves. In order to constrain the age of the deposits and prehistoric earthquakes, we radiocarbon-dated 132 samples. Many of the layers in the marsh contain organic materials with ages that range from hundreds to several thousands of years. Except for the peat that accumulates in-situ, most of the organic materials are detrital, washed in from the surrounding forests with long-lived species such as Douglas fir trees that grow to 400 years old. The age of the pre-1906 seismic events are defined by an age model using the OxCal radiocarbon analysis program. This model incorporated 66 of the original 132 dates, about one-half which is common for studies using dates on detrital materials. The paleoseismic record is most complete for the youngest seven earthquakes where faulting was documented in the upper portion of multiple trench exposures. The penultimate event likely occurred sometime during the interval of AD 1650-1735. The average recurrence interval for the past 1,000 years for the youngest seven earthquakes is ~ 140 years with a range of 79 to 220 years. However, when we consider the stratigraphic section back to approximately 1000 B.C., the longest recurrence time between the mean age of the seismic events is 488 years and the shortest is 40 years. These data yield an average earthquake recurrence time of about 240 years. Either the older record of earthquakes is incomplete, or there has been a change in the earthquake frequency on this segment of the SAF.

    Early career scientist were provided support to attend and participate in the Actinides 2009 (AN2009) International Conference held in San Francisco, California from 12-17 July 2011. This is the premier conference in the field of actinide chemistry, physics, and materials science of the actinide elements. Participation in the preeminent scientific meeting in actinide science keeps the U.S at the forefront of developments in this key field. The specific involvement of early career scientists combats the loss of expertise in the aforementioned critical areas related to f-element chemistry such as energy, homeland, and environmental security. Without these trained scientists, the U.S. will not be able to properly exploit nuclear technology to its fullest and will not be able to address its energy needs in either an environmentally safe or cost–effective manner nor will it be able to provide for its national defense. Furthermore, the early career scientists added greatly to the scientific content of the meeting and stimulates early career scientists to remain in the filed of actinide science. Providing support for participation in the AN2009 Conference via registration fee waivers, hotel cost support, and travel cost support, was extremely effective in securing the participation of early career scientists that would have not otherwise been able to attend.

    To investigate rainfall-runoff conditions that generate post-wildfire debris flows, we instrumented and surveyed steep, small watersheds along the tectonically active front of the San Gabriel Mountains, California. Fortuitously, we recorded runoff-generated debris-flows triggered by one spatially restricted convective event with 28 mm of rainfall falling over 62 minutes. Our rain gages, nested hillslope overland-flow sensors and soil-moisture probes, as well as a time series of terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) revealed the effects of the storm. Hillslope overland-flow response, along two ~10-m long flow lines perpendicular to and originating from a drainage divide, displayed only a 10 to 20 minute delay from the onset of rainfall with accumulated totals of merely 5-10 mm. Depth-stratified soil-moisture probes displayed a greater time delay, roughly 20- 30 minutes, indicating that initial overland flow was Hortonian. Furthermore, a downstream channel-monitoring array recorded a pronounced discharge peak generated by the passage of a debris flow after 18 minutes of rainfall. At this time, only four of the eleven hillslope overlandflow sensors confirmed the presence of surface-water flow. Repeat TLS and detailed field mapping using GPS document how patterns of rainsplash, overland-flow scour, and rilling contributed to the generation of meter-scale debris flows. In response to a single small storm, the debris flows deposited irregular levees and lobate terminal snouts on hillslopes and caused widespread erosion of the valley axis with ground surface lowering exceeding 1.5 m.

    This report provides information on the geology and selected physical and mechanical properties of surface rocks collected at Diablo Canyon, San Luis Obispo County, California as part of the design and engineering studies towards a future reactor neutrino oscillation experiment. The main objective of this neutrino project is to study the process of neutrino flavor transformation or neutrino oscillation by measuring neutrinos produced in the fission reactions of a nuclear power plant. Diablo Canyon was selected as a candidate site because it allows the detectors to be situated underground in a tunnel close to the source of neutrinos (i.e., at a distance of several hundred meters from the nuclear power plant) while having suitable topography for shielding against cosmic rays. The detectors have to be located underground to minimize the cosmic ray-related background noise that can mimic the signal of reactor neutrino interactions in the detector. Three Pliocene-Miocene marine sedimentary units dominate the geology of Diablo Canyon: the Pismo Formation, the Monterey Formation, and the Obispo Formation. The area is tectonically active, located east of the active Hosgri Fault and in the southern limb of the northwest trending Pismo Syncline. Most of the potential tunnel for the neutrino detector lies within the Obispo Formation. Review of previous geologic studies, observations from a field visit, and selected physical and mechanical properties of rock samples collected from the site provided baseline geological information used in developing a preliminary estimate for tunneling construction cost. Gamma-ray spectrometric results indicate low levels of radioactivity for uranium, thorium, and potassium. Grain density, bulk density, and porosity values for these rock samples range from 2.37 to 2.86 g/cc, 1.41 to 2.57 g/cc, and 1.94 to 68.5 percent respectively. Point load, unconfined compressive strength, and ultrasonic velocity tests were conducted to determine rock mechanical and acoustic properties. The rock strength values range from 23 to 219 MPa and the Poisson's ratio from 0.1 to 0.38. Potential geologic hazards in the Diablo Canyon area were identified and described to provide an overall picture of processes that may affect tunnel construction activities.

    The County of Marin General Plan enables protection of riparian, coastal, and wetland habitats identified in several incompatible ways. To establish a consistent hydrology framework for policies, topographic data were fused into a topographic-bathymetric model "tbsm45cm_20100823". The model surface contains closed basins that guide a hydro-enforcement workflow linking natural drainage with engineered structures that direct subsurface flow. Drainage was analyzed with ArcHydro (crwr.utexas.edu). Vector flow paths are diced into short segments, each with attributes of catchment area flowing through that segment. This vector flow paths are calculated county-wide below catchments of 2023 square meters (0.5 acre), providing useful detail for urban areas. With a near-continuous catchment area attribute, flow paths can quickly be classed as perennial, intermittent, or ephemeral based on catchment ranges respecting each watershed's climate and geology conditions. Annual rainfall in Marin County ranges from near 500 mm to 1500 mm, over elevations from sea level to 750 m, with a land area of 1315 square km. Watershed-specific catchment-based flow regimes offer a model of stream reaches subject to fish habitat protection. Small catchment areas help identify riparian vegetation patterns by linking sparse trees into logical groupings along drainage lines, for more comprehensive protection of watersheds. A novel finding of topo-bathy drainage analysis was drainage offsets revealed in the rocky seafloor southwesterly of Bolinas. The offset drainage patterns are in waters deeper than 20 meters, 5.5 kilometers from, and parallel to the active trace of the San Andreas Fault; one offset appears to be 1500 meters right-lateral. Data revealing this pattern were published by the California Seafloor Mapping Project seafloor.csumb.edu, converted from grid to masspoint form in the data fusion that yielded the tbsm45cm_20100823 model. A topographic-only surface model "dsm40cm_201001" was published as default terrain surface for Marin County in Google Earth in 201003. The surface models are available through the MarinMap.org consortium. Overview of synthetic drainage based on tbsm45cm_20100823 topo-bathy surface model

    Background It is increasingly recognized that the risk for HIV and hepatitis C (HCV) transmission among people who inject drugs (PWID), such as syringe sharing, occurs in the context of relationships between (at least) two people. Evidence suggests that the risk associated with injection behavior varies with injection partner types. Methods We utilized longitudinal dyad-level data from a study of young PWID from San Francisco (2006 to 2013) to investigate the relationship-level factors influencing high-risk injecting within HCV-serodiscordant injection partners (i.e., individuals who injected together ≥5 times in the prior month). Utilizing data from 70 HCV-serodiscordant injection partnerships, we used generalized linear models to examine relationship-level predictors (i.e., partnership composition, partnership closeness, and partnership dynamics) of: (1) receptive syringe sharing (RSS); and (2) receptive cooker use (RCU), as reported by the HCV-negative injection partner. Results As reported by the “at-risk” HCV-negative injection partner, receptive syringe sharing (RSS) and receptive cooker use (RCU) were 19% and 33% at enrollment, and 11% and 12% over all visits (total follow-up time 55 person-years) resulting in 13 new HCV-infections (incidence rate: 23.8/100 person-years). Person-level factors, injection partnership composition, and partnership dynamics were not significantly associated with either RSS or RCU. Instead, intimate injection partnerships (those who lived together and were also in a sexual relationship) were independently associated with a 5-times greater risk of both RSS and a 7-times greater risk of RCU when compared to injecting only partnerships. Conclusion Our findings suggest a positive, and amplified effect of relationship factors on injecting drug risk behaviors among young PWID injection partnerships. The majority of interventions to reduce injection drug use related harms focus on individual-based education to increase drug use knowledge. Our findings support the need to expand harm reduction strategies to relationship-based messaging and interventions. PMID:25286346

    The Lower Jurassic section at Makhtesh Ramon, in the northeastern Negev of Israel, comprises a sequence of fluviatile sediments of laterite composition. Post-depositional chemical weathering has resulted in marked facies changes whereby the clastic sequence passes laterally into high-alumina flint clays and bauxites (Goldbery, 1979). A geochemical and mineralogical investigation was initiated on 216 samples from several key sections of the facies change to obtain a more refined definition of the diagenetic overprint, to reconstruct the history of chemical weathering and finally to recognize the parent material of the unaltered laterite sediments. Results are presented herein on major and trace-element composition, normative mineralogical composition, kaolinite crystallinity and porosity and density measurements. Kaolinite crystallinity values proved to be a good indicator of intensity of leaching, showing a marked decline in ordering with increase of diagenetic reorganization. On the basis of mineralogical parameters it was possible to subdivide the section of flint clays and bauxites, generated under karstic conditions, into four units. Bivariate plots of Al 2O 3 vs. several elements within the section, plotted into four distinctive fields coinciding with the subdivision. Enrichment/depletion ratios, calculated from the element concentrations within these flint clays against element concentrations of the clastic parent material of the karstic infill, led to the reconstruction of a multi-cyclic leaching event, whose "signature" is left in each of the four units. At least 3 individual episodes of leaching, related to a rising water table and punctuated by "still-stands" could be recognized. Zr/TiO 2: Nb/Y plots of stable elements, using the diagram of Floyd and Winchester (1978) for determination of source rocks, indicated a rhyolite or alkaline rhyolite provenance for the clastic laterite detritus.

    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 collectors around the world and from payment of an annual budget subsidy by the Italian government. Despite its close ties with Italy, San Marino has maintained its distinctive status for centuries. PMID:12178101

    At the Vedanta and Olema Ridge paleoseismic trench sites along the San Andreas fault (SAF) in Marin County, we experimented with collecting tripod LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) data in order to test its utility in stratigraphic and tectonic geomorphic mapping. To characterized the terrain surface surroundings and within the exposed trench walls, we performed ground-based LiDAR surveys using a portable color sensitive tripod-mounted system. To produce a digital terrain model (DTM) for each site, we used a Riegl Z210i laser-scanner to target the ground and saturate it with point targets at three or more locations around the exposed trench. Local geo-referencing and control points were established using temporary auto reflectors. Using the LiDAR-based terrain model software package, ISite3D, we then merged these scans into a single surface model for each site. The same technique was used to image and process the exposed walls of the trench. We found that using a rotating scanning-laser allows us to very rapidly produce ultra-high resolution and quantitative DTMs for geomorphic analysis of a large (>0.1 km2) area surrounding the trench and that that the DTM can be used to resolve fine scale (<2.5 cm) morphologic features associated with the fault. The ability of the LiDAR to resolve color allows us another tool to investigate subtle variations in the soil structure exposed in the trench wall. By artificially modifying the color with false and enhanced colors, we can visually extract information not readily visible to the eye. At the Olema Ridge trench site, the 1906 trace of the SAF lies at the base of an east-facing scarp that formed as a slice of the ridge has been translated northwestward along the fault. As a means to compare technologies, we collected detailed geomorphic data from the site using both Total Station and LiDAR surveys. The superior coverage of the geospatial data recovered from the LiDAR allows for a more accurate rendering of the microtopography. Using the DTM for the Olema Ridge site, we can determine the probable age of the SAF at this location by palinspastic reconstruction of the surface topography and restoration of the ridge sliver back to its slope position. In addition, through comparison of archival photographs taken after the 1906 earthquake, our detailed tectonic morphologic mapping shows how the 1906 rupture has changed geologically over the past 100 years. We also compare the historical photographs to the subsurface stratigraphic section exposed in a trench. A low sedimentation rate and high rates of bioturbation have largely homogenized the stratigraphic data. We see clear evidence for the 1906 rupture and at least two prior earthquakes are also preserved. At the Vedanta marsh site, a 4-m-deep excavation exposes a section of nearly continuous deposition of organic-rich peat layers interbedded with marsh clay and silt, and fluvial to colluvial gravel deposits. This stratigraphic section contains evidence for approximately ten ground-rupturing earthquakes over the past ~3000 years. We tested the LiDAR system on the vertical exposure at the Vedanta site to see if high resolution geospatial data can capture individual stratigraphic layers, faults, and event horizons that can be interpreted directly from the remotely sensed data. In this presentation, we compare the LiDAR to trench logs mapped by photomosaic and graphical techniques.

    Reports by Nadeau and Dolenc (2005) that tremor had been detected near Cholame Valley spawned an effort to use UPSAR (U. S. Geological Survey Parkfield Seismic Array) to study characteristics of tremor. UPSAR was modified to record three channels of velocity at 40–50 sps continuously in January 2005 and ran for about 1 month, during which time we recorded numerous episodes of tremor. One tremor, on 21 January at 0728, was recorded with particularly high signal levels as well as another episode 3 days later. Both events were very emergent, had a frequency content between 2 and 8 Hz, and had numerous high-amplitude, short-duration arrivals within the tremor signal. Here using the first episode as an example, we discuss an analysis procedure, which yields azimuth and apparent velocity of the tremor at UPSAR. We then provide locations for both tremor episodes. The emphasis here is how the tremor episode evolves. Twelve stations were operating at the time of recording. Slowness of arrivals was determined using cross correlation of pairs of stations; the same method used in analyzing the main shock data from 28 September 2004. A feature of this analysis is that 20 s of the time series were used at a time to calculate correlation; the longer windows resulted in more consistent estimates of slowness, but lower peak correlations. These values of correlation (peaks of about 0.25), however, are similar to that obtained for the S wave of a microearthquake. Observed peaks in slowness were traced back to source locations assumed to lie on the San Andreas fault. Our inferred locations for the two tremor events cluster near the locations of previously observed tremor, south of the Cholame Valley. Tremor source depths are in the 14–24 km range, which is below the seismogenic brittle zone, but above the Moho. Estimates of error do not preclude locations below the Moho, however. The tremor signal is very emergent but contains packets that are several times larger than the background tremor signal and lasts about 5 s. These impulsive wavelets are similar to low-frequency earthquakes signals seen in Japan but appear to be broader band rather than just higher in low-frequency energy. They may be more appropriately called high-energy tremor (HET). HET signals at UPSAR correlate well with the record of this event from station GHIB of the HRSN borehole array at Parkfield and HETs typically have a higher cross-correlation coefficient than the rest of the tremor event. The amplitudes of a large HET are consistent with a magnitude of 0.1 when compared with a M2.3 event that had about the same epicenter. Polarizations of the tremor episode at UPSAR are mostly just north of east. Both linearity and azimuth evolve over time suggesting a change in tremor source location over time and linearity is typically higher at the HETs.

  11. Integration of remotely-sensed and ground-based measurements to constrain simulations of groundwater flow and land subsidence, San Joaquin Valley, CA

    Extensive groundwater withdrawal from the unconsolidated deposits in the San Joaquin Valley caused widespread aquifer-system compaction and resultant land subsidence between 1926 and 1970-locally exceeding 8 meters (m). To identify the extent of the subsidence, a monitoring network consisting of 31 extensometers was developed and maintained in the 1960s. The importation of surface water in the early 1970s resulted in decreased pumping and a steady recovery of water levels. This recovery reduced the rate of compaction, and consequently, the monitoring network deteriorated. However, lack of imported surface-water availability during 1976-77, 1986-92, and 2007-09 has caused groundwater pumping to increase, which has resulted in water levels to decline to near-historic lows and renewed compaction to occur. Land subsidence resulting from this compaction has reduced freeboard and flow capacity of the Delta-Mendota Canal, the California Aqueduct, and other canals that deliver irrigation water and transport floodwater, requiring expensive repairs. To identify existing and future subsidence, a monitoring network is being developed that includes resurrecting some of the extensometers and piezometers from the old network and augmenting these ground-based measurements with remotely-sensed measurements from Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar and continuous Global Positioning System stations. Preliminary results from the monitoring network indicate that subsidence is occurring in locations of known historical subsidence. These results are being used to develop groundwater-flow and subsidence models to help understand and effectively manage future subsidence. A 1-D model was developed to identify the depth of the compactable units near Oro Loma, where about 60 m of water-level decline is associated with about 3 m of subsidence. The subsurface geology is well-constrained by detailed descriptions of continuous core and by geophysical logs. Analysis indicates that the Corcoran Clay (CC) is about 27 m thick, which many think is the major compactable unit. The hydraulic parameters controlling subsidence-elastic and inelastic specific storage and vertical hydraulic conductivity-were constrained using results from consolidation tests. The model results indicate more than 90 percent of the total compaction is occurring below the CC in 18 clay layers ranging from about 0.03 to 11 m thick and totaling about 48 m, or about half of the aggregate thickness of all simulated aquitards. The model results also indicate that the CC has only compacted about 0.08 m owing to its low diffusivity and large thickness, and will ultimately compact in about 5,000 years. As the monitoring network becomes fully developed, high frequency measurements of compaction, land subsidence, and groundwater levels will enable inclusion of shorter-term elastic deformation in simulations. Results from the 1-D model, in terms of both model construction and hydraulic parameters, will be used to constrain the 3-D flow and subsidence models of the Central Valley. The measurements obtained from the monitoring network may ultimately provide managers with the subsidence information needed to manage the water conveyance systems, water-banking strategies, and other infrastructure.

  12. Evaluating the impact of Mexico’s drug policy reforms on people who inject drugs in Tijuana, B.C., Mexico, and San Diego, CA, United States: a binational mixed methods research agenda

    PubMed Central

    2014-01-01

    Background Policymakers and researchers seek answers to how liberalized drug policies affect people who inject drugs (PWID). In response to concerns about the failing “war on drugs,” Mexico recently implemented drug policy reforms that partially decriminalized possession of small amounts of drugs for personal use while promoting drug treatment. Recognizing important epidemiologic, policy, and socioeconomic differences between the United States—where possession of any psychoactive drugs without a prescription remains illegal—and Mexico—where possession of small quantities for personal use was partially decriminalized, we sought to assess changes over time in knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and infectious disease profiles among PWID in the adjacent border cities of San Diego, CA, USA, and Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Methods Based on extensive binational experience and collaboration, from 2012–2014 we initiated two parallel, prospective, mixed methods studies: Proyecto El Cuete IV in Tijuana (n = 785) and the STAHR II Study in San Diego (n = 575). Methods for sampling, recruitment, and data collection were designed to be compatible in both studies. All participants completed quantitative behavioral and geographic assessments and serological testing (HIV in both studies; hepatitis C virus and tuberculosis in STAHR II) at baseline and four semi-annual follow-up visits. Between follow-up assessment visits, subsets of participants completed qualitative interviews to explore contextual factors relating to study aims and other emergent phenomena. Planned analyses include descriptive and inferential statistics for quantitative data, content analysis and other mixed-methods approaches for qualitative data, and phylogenetic analysis of HIV-positive samples to understand cross-border transmission dynamics. Results Investigators and research staff shared preliminary findings across studies to provide feedback on instruments and insights regarding local phenomena. As a result, recruitment and data collection procedures have been implemented successfully, demonstrating the importance of binational collaboration in evaluating the impact of structural-level drug policy reforms on the behaviors, health, and wellbeing of PWID across an international border. Conclusions Our prospective, mixed methods approach allows each study to be responsive to emerging phenomena within local contexts while regular collaboration promotes sharing insights across studies. The strengths and limitations of this approach may serve as a guide for other evaluations of harm reduction policies internationally. PMID:24520885

  13. Evaluation of Exposures to Diesel Particulate Matter Utilizing Ambient Air Monitoring and Urinary Biomarkers Among Pedestrian Commuters who Cross the U.S.-Mexico Border at San Ysidro, CA

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Galaviz, Vanessa Eileen

    Background: Walk-in-line pedestrians crossing the U.S.-Mexico border northbound at the San Ysidro, CA Port of Entry ("Border Commuters") may be at an increased risk of experiencing elevated traffic-related air pollution, including diesel exhaust (DE). DE exposure has been associated with numerous adverse health effects, particularly cardiovascular and respiratory problems, including as lung cancer. Pedestrian crossers wait in line for extended periods and stand within 10 feet of highly concentrated traffic, particularly to diesel buses. Understanding the magnitude of traffic-related exposures is important for this vulnerable population. It was hypothesized that subjects who reside in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico and cross the border as a pedestrian will experience higher exposure to traffic-related pollutants than those who live and work in South San Diego, CA, USA and do not cross the border. Methods: Ninety-one participants were enrolled for this study; 80% were "Border Commuters" and 20% were "Non-Border Commuters". "Non-Border Commuters" served as the comparison group and were defined as residents who lived in or near and worked or went to school in San Ysidro, CA but did not cross the border. Questionnaires, time activity diaries, and urine samples were collected from all participants. Of the "Border Commuters", 56 personal 24-hour PM2.5 and 1-nitropyrene (1-NP) - a marker for diesel exhaust - samples were collected. There were 22 at-home indoor and 14 at-home outdoor 1-NP samples collected. Additionally, area samples collected at the border included 35 days of 1-NP, black carbon (BC), carbon monoxide (CO), fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ultrafine particulate matter (UFP). Of the "Non-Border Commuters", 15 personal 24-hour PM2.5 and 1-NP samples were collected. Additonally, 3 at-home indoor and outdoor 24-hour 1-NP samples were collected. Results: Personal exposure to PM2.5 was nearly 2-fold higher among "Border Commuters" compared to "Non-Border Commuters" (39 +/- 30 μg/m3 vs 21 +/- 11 μg/m3), while personal exposure to 1-NP was more than 8-fold higher among the "Border Commuters"(1.7 +/- 2.6 vs 0.22 +/- 0.21 pg/m3, p<0.01, Mann-Whitney). Two metabolites of 1-NP were readily detected in urine samples, the most abundant of which was 8-hydroxy-1-nitropyrene (8-OHNP). "Border Commuters" had greater than a 2-fold higher concentration of 8-OHNP (0.071 +/- 0.066 vs 0.032 +/- 0.021 pg/mL, p=0.05, Mann-Whitney) and a 3-fold higher concentration of 8-OHNAAP (0.063 +/- 0.11 vs 0.021 +/- 0.013 pg/mL, p=0.11, Mann-Whitney) as compared to "Non-Border Commuters". Home indoor concentrations of 1-NP were 30-60% of home outdoor concentrations with "Border Commuters" having higher concentrations both indoors (0.64 +/- 0.81 vs 0.078 +/- 0.075 pg/m3, p=0.04, Mann-Whitney) and outdoors (1.0 +/- 0.93 vs 0.27 +/- 0.24 pg/m3, p=0.11, Mann-Whitney) compared to "Non-Border Commuters". Border concentrations of 1-NP weighted by the time spent at the border, total travel given season, and season were all predictors of personal exposure to 1-NP among "Border Commuters". However, when placed in a multivariate linear regression model total travel given season was the only predictor variable to remain significant. Season was the only predictor for personal exposure to PM2.5 among "Border Commuters". Total travel was also a significant predictor for 8-OHNP among "Border Commuters." Median values (IQR) of daily averages for fixed-site measurements made at the border were as follows: 40,000 (24,000-52,000) UFP/cm3, 5 (3-6) ppm CO, 1.3 (0.5-2.6) pg/m3 1-NP, 4 (3-11) μg/m3 BC, 41 (23-57) μg/m3 real-time PM2.5, and 15 (13-22) μg/m3 gravimetric PM2.5. Wind speed was a predictor of gravimetric PM2.5 at the border explaining 22% of the variance. Relative humidity and vehicle delay were both predictors of UFP measured at the border, explaining 13% and 21% of the variance, respectively. However, when modeled together none remain significant. There were no predictors for 1-NP measurements at the border. Conclusions: This is the first quantitative study characterizing traffic-related exposure to a vulnerable population, indicating that this vulnerable population is indeed at high risk for exposure. "Border Commuters" experience higher exposure to 1-NP and PM2.5 as compared to "Non-Border Commuters", as determined by both personal and at-home measurements. In addition, traffic-related air pollution exposure among "Border Commuters" within 10 feet of highly concentrated traffic is of great public health concern as concentrations at the border are similar to near-roadway studies that link exposure to adverse health effects. Interventions to reduce border wait times would significantly reduce traffic pollutant exposures in this vulnerable population. However, further work needs to be done to understand the spatial heterogeneity of at-home exposures between the two study groups.

  17. Potential for a large earthquake rupture of the San Ramn fault in Santiago, Chile

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The San Ramn fault is an active west-vergent thrust fault system located along the eastern border of Santiago, capital of Chile, at the foot of the main Andes Cordillera. This is part of the continental-scale West Andean Thrust, at the western slope of the Andean orogen. The fault system is constituted by fault segments in the order of 10-15 km length, evidenced by conspicuous 3-over 100 m height fault scarps systematically located along the fault trace. This evidence Quaternary faulting activity, which together with the geometry, structure and geochronological data support slip rate estimations in the order of ~0.4 mm/year. To probe seismic potential for the west flank of the Andes in front of Santiago, we excavated and analyzed a trench across a prominent-young fault scarp. Together with geochronological data from Optically Stimulated Luminiscence complemented by radiocarbon ages, our paleoseismic results demonstrate recurrent late Quaternary faulting along this structure, with nearly 5 m of displacement in each event. With the last large earthquake nearly 8,000-9,000 years ago and two ruptures within the past 17,000-19,000 years ago, the San Ramon fault appears ripe for another large earthquake up to M7.5 in the near future, making Santiago another major world city at significant risk.

    The Female Athlete Triad is a medical condition often observed in physically active girls and women, and involves 3 components: (1) low energy availability with or without disordered eating, (2) menstrual dysfunction, and (3) low bone mineral density. Female athletes often present with 1 or more of the 3 Triad components, and an early intervention is essential to prevent its progression to serious endpoints that include clinical eating disorders, amenorrhea, and osteoporosis. This consensus statement represents a set of recommendations developed following the first (San Francisco, California) and second (Indianapolis, Indianna) International Symposia on the Female Athlete Triad. It is intended to provide clinical guidelines for physicians, athletic trainers, and other health care providers for the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of the Female Athlete Triad and to provide clear recommendations for return to play. The 2014 Female Athlete Triad Coalition Consensus Statement on Treatment and Return to Play of the Female Athlete Triad Expert Panel has proposed a risk stratification point system that takes into account magnitude of risk to assist the physician in decision-making regarding sport participation, clearance, and return to play. Guidelines are offered for clearance categories, management by a multidisciplinary team, and implementation of treatment contracts. This consensus paper has been endorsed by The Female Athlete Triad Coalition, an International Consortium of leading Triad researchers, physicians, and other health care professionals, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine.

  4. Broadband Waveform Modeling to Evaluate the USGS Seismic Velocity Model for the San Francisco Bay Area

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Rodgers, A.; Petersson, A.; Nilsson, S.; Sjogreen, B.; McCandless, K.

    2006-12-01

    As part of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake centenary, the USGS developed a three-dimensional seismic velocity and attenuation model for Northern California based on detailed geologic and geophysical constraints. The model was used to predict ground motions for the 1906 rupture. In this study we evaluate the model to assess its ability to accurately predict ground motions from moderate earthquakes recorded on broadband stations. Satisfactory prediction of ground motions from these events will provide hope for accurate modeling of future scenario earthquakes. Simulations were performed on large parallel computer(s) with a new elastic finite difference code developed at LLNL. We simulated broadband ground motions (0-0.25 Hz) for several moderate (magnitude 3.5-5.0) earthquakes in the region observed at Berkeley Digital Seismic Network (BDSN) broadband stations. These events are well located and can be modeled with simple point moment tensor sources (taken from the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory catalog), helping to isolate the effects of structure on the waveforms. These data sample the region's diverse tectonic structures, such as the bay muds, sedimentary basins and hard rock complexes. Preliminary results indicate that the simulations reproduce many important features in the data. For example, observed long duration surface waves are often predicted for complex paths (traveling across contrasting structures) and through sedimentary basins. Excellent waveform fits were frequently obtained for long-period comparisons (0.02-0.1) and good fits were often obtained for shorter periods. We will attempt higher frequency simulations to test the ability of the model to match the high frequency response. Finally, we performed large scenario earthquake simulations for the Hayward Fault. These simulations predict large amplifications across the Santa Clara and San Ramon/Livermore Valley sedimentary basins and with the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta.

  6. History of San Marco

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Caporale, A. J.

    1968-01-01

    A brief history is reported of the first San Marco project, a joint program of the United States and Italy. The Project was a three phase effort to investigate upper air density and associated ionosphere phenomena. The initial phase included the design and development of the spacecraft, the experiments, the launch complex, and a series of suborbital flights, from Wallops Island. The second phase, consisting of designing, fabricating, and testing a spacecraft for the first orbital mission, culminated in an orbital launch also from Wallops Island. The third phase consisted of further refining the experiments and spacecraft instrumentation and of establishing a full-bore scout complex in Kenya. The launch of San Marco B, in April 1967, from this complex into an equatorial orbit, concluded the initial San Marco effort.

  10. SANS studies of polymers

    SciTech Connect

    Wignall, G.D.

    1984-10-01

    Before small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), chain conformation studies were limited to light and small angle x-ray scattering techniques, usually in dilute solution. SANS from blends of normal and labeled molecules could give direct information on chain conformation in bulk polymers. Water-soluble polymers may be examined in H/sub 2/O/D/sub 2/O mixtures using contrast variation methods to provide further information on polymer structure. This paper reviews some of the information provided by this technique using examples of experiments performed at the National Center for Small-Angle Scattering Research (NCSASR).

  11. Radar image San Francisco Bay Area, California

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    2000-01-01

    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 Alameda Naval Air Station is seen just below the Bay Bridge at the center of the image. Two major faults bounding the San Francisco-Oakland urban areas are visible on this image. 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. This signal, known as radar backscatter, provides insight into the nature of the surface, including its roughness, vegetation cover and urbanization. The overall faint striping pattern in the images is a data processing artifact due to the preliminary nature of this image product. These artifacts will be removed after further data processing.

    This image was acquired by the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, launched on February 11,2000. SRTM uses 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. The mission is designed to collect three-dimensional measurements of the Earth's surface. To collect the 3-D data, engineers added a 60-meter-long (200-foot) mast, installed additional C-band and X-band antennas, and improved tracking and navigation devices. The mission is a cooperative project between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and the German and Italian Space agencies. It is managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, for NASA's Earth Science Enterprise, Washington, DC.

    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.

  18. If and SR Ca2+ release both contribute to pacemaker activity in canine sinoatrial node cells

    Increasing evidence suggests that cardiac pacemaking is the result of two sinoatrial node (SAN) cell mechanisms: a voltage clock and a Ca2+ dependent process, or Ca2+ clock. The voltage clock initiates action potentials (APs) by SAN cell membrane potential depolarization from inward currents, of which the pacemaker current (If) is thought to be particularly important. A Ca2+ dependent process triggers APs when sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+ release activates inward current carried by the forward mode of the electrogenic Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX). However, these mechanisms have mostly been defined in rodents or rabbits, but are unexplored in single SAN cells from larger animals. Here, we used patch-clamp and confocal microscope techniques to explore the roles of the voltage and Ca2+ clock mechanisms in canine SAN pacemaker cells. We found that ZD7288, a selective If antagonist, significantly reduced basal automaticity and induced irregular, arrhythmia-like activity in canine SAN cells. In addition, ZD7288 impaired but did not eliminate the SAN cell rate acceleration by isoproterenol. In contrast, ryanodine significantly reduced the SAN cell acceleration by isoproterenol, while ryanodine reduction of basal automaticity was modest (?14%) and did not reach statistical significance. Importantly, pretreatment with ryanodine eliminated SR Ca2+ release, but did not affect basal or isoproterenol-enhanced If. Taken together, these results indicate that voltage and Ca2+ dependent automaticity mechanisms coexist in canine SAN cells, and suggest If and SR Ca2+ release cooperate to determine baseline and catecholamine-dependent automaticity in isolated dog SAN cells.

  19. Ca2+ cycling properties are conserved despite bradycardic effects of heart failure in sinoatrial node cells

    PubMed Central

    2015-01-01

    Background: In animal models of heart failure (HF), heart rate decreases due to an increase in intrinsic cycle length (CL) of the sinoatrial node (SAN). Pacemaker activity of SAN cells is complex and modulated by the membrane clock, i.e., the ensemble of voltage gated ion channels and electrogenic pumps and exchangers, and the Ca2+ clock, i.e., the ensemble of intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) dependent processes. HF in SAN cells results in remodeling of the membrane clock, but few studies have examined its effects on [Ca2+]i homeostasis. Methods: SAN cells were isolated from control rabbits and rabbits with volume and pressure overload-induced HF. [Ca2+]i concentrations, and action potentials (APs) and Na+–Ca2+ exchange current (INCX) were measured using indo-1 and patch-clamp methodology, respectively. Results: The frequency of spontaneous [Ca2+]i transients was significantly lower in HF SAN cells (3.0 ± 0.1 (n = 40) vs. 3.4 ± 0.1 Hz (n = 45); mean ± SEM), indicating that intrinsic CL was prolonged. HF slowed the [Ca2+]i transient decay, which could be explained by the slower frequency and reduced sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) dependent rate of Ca2+ uptake. Other [Ca2+]i transient parameters, SR Ca2+ content, INCX density, and INCX-[Ca2+]i relationship were all unaffected by HF. Combined AP and [Ca2+]i recordings demonstrated that the slower [Ca2+]i transient decay in HF SAN cells may result in increased INCX during the diastolic depolarization, but that this effect is likely counteracted by the HF-induced increase in intracellular Na+. β-adrenergic and muscarinic stimulation were not changed in HF SAN cells, except that late diastolic [Ca2+]i rise, a prominent feature of the Ca2+ clock, is lower during β-adrenergic stimulation. Conclusions: HF SAN cells have a slower [Ca2+]i transient decay with limited effects on pacemaker activity. Reduced late diastolic [Ca2+]i rise during β-adrenergic stimulation may contribute to an impaired increase in intrinsic frequency in HF SAN cells. PMID:25698973

    Cardiac pacemaking is governed by specialized cardiomyocytes located in the sinoatrial node (SAN). SAN cells (SANCs) integrate voltage-gated currents from channels on the membrane surface (membrane clock) with rhythmic Ca(2+) release from internal Ca(2+) stores (Ca(2+) clock) to adjust heart rate to meet hemodynamic demand. Here, we report that stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1) and Orai1 channels, key components of store-operated Ca(2+) entry, are selectively expressed in SANCs. Cardiac-specific deletion of STIM1 in mice resulted in depletion of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca(2+) stores of SANCs and led to SAN dysfunction, as was evident by a reduction in heart rate, sinus arrest, and an exaggerated autonomic response to cholinergic signaling. Moreover, STIM1 influenced SAN function by regulating ionic fluxes in SANCs, including activation of a store-operated Ca(2+) current, a reduction in L-type Ca(2+) current, and enhancing the activities of Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger. In conclusion, these studies reveal that STIM1 is a multifunctional regulator of Ca(2+) dynamics in SANCs that links SR Ca(2+) store content with electrical events occurring in the plasma membrane, thereby contributing to automaticity of the SAN.

    2000-01-01

    The prominent linear feature straight down the center of this perspective view is California's famous San Andreas Fault. The image, created with data from NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), will be used by geologists studying fault dynamics and landforms resulting from active tectonics. This segment of the fault lies west of the city of Palmdale, Calif., about 100 kilometers (about 60 miles) northwest of Los Angeles. The fault is the active tectonic boundary between the North American plate on the right, and the Pacific plate on the left. Relative to each other, the Pacific plate is moving away from the viewer and the North American plate is moving toward the viewer along what geologists call a right lateral strike-slip fault. Two large mountain ranges are visible, the San Gabriel Mountains on the left and the Tehachapi Mountains in the upper right. Another fault, the Garlock Fault lies at the base of the Tehachapis; the San Andreas and the Garlock Faults meet in the center distance near the town of Gorman. In the distance, over the Tehachapi Mountains is California's Central Valley. Along the foothills in the right hand part of the image is the Antelope Valley, including the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. The data used to create this image were acquired by SRTM aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, launched on February 11, 2000.

    This type of display adds the important dimension of elevation to the study of land use and environmental processes as observed in satellite images. The perspective view was created by draping a Landsat satellite image over an SRTM elevation model. Topography is exaggerated 1.5 times vertically. The Landsat image was provided by the United States Geological Survey's Earth Resources Observations Systems (EROS) Data Center, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

    SRTM uses 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 three-dimensional measurements of the Earth's surface. To collect the 3-D data, engineers added a 60-meter-long (200-foot) mast, installed additional C-band and X-band antennas, and improved tracking and navigation devices. The mission is a cooperative project between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and the German and Italian space agencies. It is managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, for NASA's Earth Science Enterprise, Washington, DC.

    Store-operated Ca(2+) entry was investigated in isolated mouse sinoatrial nodes (SAN) dissected from right atria and loaded with Ca(2+) indicators. Incubation of the SAN in Ca(2+)-free solution caused a substantial decrease in resting intracellular Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) and stopped pacemaker activity. Reintroduction of Ca(2+) in the presence of cyclopiazonic acid (CPA), a sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) pump inhibitor, led to sustained elevation of [Ca(2+)](i), a characteristic of store-operated Ca(2+) channel (SOCC) activity. Two SOCC antagonists, Gd(3+) and SKF-96365, inhibited 72+/-8% and 65+/-8% of this Ca(2+) influx, respectively. SKF-96365 also reduced the spontaneous pacemaker rate to 27+/-4% of control in the presence of CPA. Because members of the transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) gene family may encode SOCCs, we used RT-PCR to examine mRNA expression of the 7 known mammalian TRPC isoforms. Transcripts for TRPC1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7, but not TRPC5, were detected. Immunohistochemistry using anti-TRPC1, 3, 4, and 6 antibodies revealed positive labeling in the SAN region and single pacemaker cells. These results indicate that mouse SAN exhibits store-operated Ca(2+) activity which may be attributable to TRPC expression, and suggest that SOCCs may be involved in regulating pacemaker firing rate.

    Contaminant concentrations from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River watershed were determined in water samples mainly during flood flows in an ongoing effort to describe contaminant loads entering San Francisco Bay, CA, USA. Calculated PCB and total mercury loads during the 6-year observation period ranged between 3.9 and 19 kg/yr and 61 and 410 kg/yr, respectively. Long-term average PCB loads were estimated at 7.7 kg/yr and total mercury loads were estimated at 200 kg/yr. Also monitored were PAHs, PBDEs (two years of data), and dioxins/furans (one year of data) with average loads of 392, 11, and 0.15/0.014 (OCDD/OCDF) kg/yr, respectively. Organochlorine pesticide loads were estimated at 9.9 kg/yr (DDT), 1.6 kg/yr (chlordane), and 2.2 kg/yr (dieldrin). Selenium loads were estimated at 16 300 kg/yr. With the exception of selenium, all average contaminant loads described in the present study were close to or below regulatory load allocations established for North San Francisco Bay. PMID:26462078

  3. Age-associated abnormalities of intrinsic automaticity of sinoatrial nodal cells are linked to deficient cAMP-PKA-Ca2+ signaling

    PubMed Central

    Liu, Jie; Sirenko, Syevda; Juhaszova, Magdalena; Sollott, Steven J.; Shukla, Shweta; Yaniv, Yael

    2014-01-01

    A reduced sinoatrial node (SAN) functional reserve underlies the age-associated decline in heart rate acceleration in response to stress. SAN cell function involves an oscillatory coupled-clock system: the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR), a Ca2+ clock, and the electrogenic-sarcolemmal membrane clock. Ca2+-activated-calmodulin-adenylyl cyclase/CaMKII-cAMP/PKA-Ca2+ signaling regulated by phosphodiesterase activity drives SAN cells automaticity. SR-generated local calcium releases (LCRs) activate Na+/Ca2+ exchanger in the membrane clock, which initiates the action potential (AP). We hypothesize that SAN cell dysfunctions accumulate with age. We found a reduction in single SAN cell AP firing in aged (2024 mo) vs. adult (34 mo) mice. The sensitivity of the SAN beating rate responses to both muscarinic and adrenergic receptor activation becomes decreased in advanced age. Additionally, age-associated coincident dysfunctions occur stemming from compromised clock functions, including a reduced SR Ca2+ load and a reduced size, number, and duration of spontaneous LCRs. Moreover, the sensitivity of SAN beating rate to a cAMP stress induced by phosphodiesterase inhibitor is reduced, as are the LCR size, amplitude, and number in SAN cells from aged vs. adult mice. These functional changes coincide with decreased expression of crucial SR Ca2+-cycling proteins, including SR Ca2+-ATPase pump, ryanodine receptors, and Na+/Ca2+ exchanger. Thus a deterioration in intrinsic Ca2+ clock kinetics in aged SAN cells, due to deficits in intrinsic SR Ca2+ cycling and its response to a cAMP-dependent pathway activation, is involved in the age-associated reduction in intrinsic resting AP firing rate, and in the reduction in the acceleration of heart rate during exercise.

    Sinus node dysfunction (SND) is a major public health problem that is associated with sudden cardiac death and requires surgical implantation of artificial pacemakers. However, little is known about the molecular and cellular mechanisms that cause SND. Most SND occurs in the setting of heart failure and hypertension, conditions that are marked by elevated circulating angiotensin II (Ang II) and increased oxidant stress. Here, we show that oxidized calmodulin kinase II (ox-CaMKII) is a biomarker for SND in patients and dogs and a disease determinant in mice. In wild-type mice, Ang II infusion caused sinoatrial nodal (SAN) cell oxidation by activating NADPH oxidase, leading to increased ox-CaMKII, SAN cell apoptosis, and SND. p47–/– mice lacking functional NADPH oxidase and mice with myocardial or SAN-targeted CaMKII inhibition were highly resistant to SAN apoptosis and SND, suggesting that ox-CaMKII–triggered SAN cell death contributed to SND. We developed a computational model of the sinoatrial node that showed that a loss of SAN cells below a critical threshold caused SND by preventing normal impulse formation and propagation. These data provide novel molecular and mechanistic information to understand SND and suggest that targeted CaMKII inhibition may be useful for preventing SND in high-risk patients. PMID:21785215

  5. Heat flow and energetics of the San Andreas fault zone.

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    Lachenbruch, A.H.; Sass, J.H.

    1980-01-01

    Approximately 100 heat flow measurements in the San Andreas fault zone indicate 1) there is no evidence for local frictional heating of the main fault trace at any latitude over a 1000-km length from Cape Mendocino to San Bernardino, 2) average heat flow is high (ca.2 HFU, ca.80 mW m-2) throughout the 550-km segment of the Coast Ranges that encloses the San Andreas fault zone in central California; this broad anomaly falls off rapidly toward the Great Valley to the east, and over a 200-km distance toward the Mendocino Triple Junction to the northwest. As others have pointed out, a local conductive heat flow anomaly would be detectable unless the frictional resistance allocated to heat production on the main trace were less than 100 bars. Frictional work allocated to surface energy of new fractures is probably unimportant, and hydrologic convection is not likely to invalidate the conduction assumption, since the heat discharge by thermal springs near the fault is negligible. -Authors

    2005-01-01

    For decades, the measurement of extracellular Ca(2+) ((40)Ca(o) (2+)) entry into cells, using (45)Ca(2+) as carrier, has been a widely used technique. One of the first studies was performed by Hodgkin and Keynes to measure the rate at which (40)Ca(2+) labeled with (45)Ca(2+) crosses the surface membrane of resting squid axons, or during nervous activity. In a few large excitable cells, it was also possible to measure Ca(2+) entry indirectly through the measurement of inward currents through Ca(2+) channels under voltage-clamp conditions; however, Ca(o) (2+) entry into small excitable cells could only be measured using (45)Ca(2+). With the improvement of patch-clamp techniques, Ca(o) (2+) entry was measured via the analysis of single-channel or whole-cell inward currents through Ca(2+) channels. The first detailed study of Ca(2+) channel currents in small mammalian excitable cells was performed in 1982 in bovine adrenal medullary chromaffin cells, in the laboratory of Erwin Neher, where patch-clamp methodologies were developed. As patch-clamp techniques evolved, it seemed that the measurement of Ca(o) (2+) entry using (45)Ca(2+) would no longer be useful. Isotopes and scintillation fluids are expensive, administrative controls for good laboratory practices are always increasing, and the manipulation of isotopes becomes a growing nuisance. On the other hand, the time resolution of techniques using (45)Ca(2+) entry are in the range of seconds, whereas the patch-clamp measurement of inward Ca(2+) currents is in the range of milliseconds, three orders of magnitude lower.

  12. Beneficial Reuse of San Ardo Produced Water

    SciTech Connect

    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, and organics. Pilot study results indicate that produced water from the San Ardo oilfield can be treated to meet project water quality goals. Approximately 600 mg/l of caustic and 100 mg/l magnesium dosing were required to meet the hardness and silica goals in the warm softening unit. Approximately 30% of the ammonia was removed in the cooling tower; additional ammonia could be removed by ion exchange or other methods if necessary. A brackish water reverse osmosis membrane was effective in removing total dissolved solids and organics at all pH levels evaluated; however, the boron treatment objective was only achieved at a pH of 10.5 and above.

    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.

    Lake Emma, which no longer exists because of a mining accident, was a tarn in a south-facing cirque near the headwaters of the Animas River in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. During the Pinedale glaciation, this area was covered by a large transection glacier centered over the Lake Emma region. Three radiocarbon dates on basal organic sediment from Lake Emma indicate that by ca. 15,000 yr B.P. this glacier, one of the largest in the southern Rocky Mountains, no longer existed. Twenty-two radiocarbon dates on Picea and Abies krummholz fragments in the Lake Emma deposits indicate that from ca. 9600 to 7800 yr B.P., from 6700 to 5600 yr B.P., and at 3100 yr B.P. the krummholz limit was at least 70 m higher than present. These data, in conjunction with Picea:Pinus pollen ratios from both the Lake Emma site and the Hurricane Basin site of J. T. Andrews, P. E. Carrara, F. B. King, and R. Struckenrath (1975, Quaternary Research 5, 173-197) suggest than from ca. 9600 to 3000 yr B.P. timberline in the San Juan Mountains was higher than present. Cooling apparently began ca. 3000 yr B.P. as indicated by decreases in both the percentage of Picea pollen and Picea:Pinus pollen ratios at the Hurricane Basin site (Andrews et al., 1975). Cooling is also suggested by the lack of Picea or Abies fragments younger than 3000 yr B.P. at either the Lake Emma or the Hurricane Basin site. ?? 1984.

  2. Ca2+-activated adenylyl cyclase 1 introduces Ca2+-dependence to beta-adrenergic stimulation of HCN2 current.

    PubMed

    Kryukova, Yelena N; Protas, Lev; Robinson, Richard B

    2012-06-01

    Previous observations show that ?-adrenergic modulation of pacemaker current (I(f)) in sinoatrial node (SAN) cells is impaired by disruption of normal Ca(2+)-homeostasis with ryanodine or BAPTA. Recently, the presence of Ca(2+)-activated adenylyl cyclase (AC) 1 was reported in SAN, and was proposed as a possible mechanism of Ca(2+)-dependence of ?-adrenergic modulation. However, direct evidence that pacemaker (HCN) channels can be regulated by Ca(2+)-activated AC and that such regulation introduces Ca(2+) dependence, is lacking. Here we co-expressed AC1 or AC6 with HCN2 in neonatal rat ventricular myocytes, which lack AC1. Although both isoforms have equivalent expression level and ability to interact with HCN2, only AC1 increases intracellular cAMP content, accelerates spontaneous beating rate and modifies HCN2 biophysics. Measured HCN2 current in the AC1 group activated ~10mV more positive than in GFP or AC6. The ?-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol induced a further positive shift under control conditions, but failed to do so after pretreatment with the Ca(2+) chelator BAPTA. In the AC6 group, isoproterenol shifted the HCN2 activation relation to a similar extent in the absence and presence of BAPTA. Thus, AC1 but not AC6 over-expression introduces Ca(2+)-sensitivity to the ?-adrenergic response of HCN2. These results demonstrate physical and functional interaction between AC isoforms and the HCN2 pacemaker channel and support a key role of Ca(2+) activated AC1 as a molecular mechanism in Ca(2+)-dependent modulation of ?-adrenergic response of heart rate.

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

    Cooper Percker, Oliver; Lara, Luis E.

    2015-04-01

    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 (<5%); and (2) Plateau unit (PU) (210±60 ka) formed by a basanitic lava succession with high 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.

    1993-04-01

    Pelitic schists and gneisses from the San Antonio terrane in the eastern San Gabriel Mountains consist of garnet, biotite, plagioclase, quartz, sillimanite, cordierite, hercynite [+-] alkali feldspar. Large garnet porphyroblasts contain quartz, plagioclase and sillimanite inclusions. Cordierite occurs as haloes around garnet porphyroblasts and as small subgrains always associated with hercynite and together replacing sillimanite blades. Hercynite additionally appears to have nucleated on the edges of sillimanite blades. Contrary to previous investigations, hercynite appears to be a late mineral phase. Reaction textures described above have been used to calculate a set of net-transfer reactions that can be used (1) to characterize all possible exchanges of matter between minerals in the system and (2) to construct a reaction space for the system. Fourteen thin sections with large garnet porphyroblasts and abundant biotite were used for microprobe analysis. Detailed probe analyses show well-developed zoning in the plagioclase and alkali feldspar whose character varies depending on location in the thin section relative to neighboring minerals. Generally, large plagioclase porphyroblasts display normal zoning and are not as calcium-rich as plagioclase inclusions in the garnet. Garnet porphyroblasts have flat zoning profiles due to high temperatures of metamorphism. Pressures and temperatures of metamorphism have been calculated from these assemblages using garnet-biotite geothermometry and quartz-garnet-aluminosilicate-plagioclase geobarometry.

    The operational, economic, environmental, social and engineering feasibility of utilizing deactivated maritime vessels as a waterfront quiet short takeoff and landing facility to be located near the central business district of San Francisco was investigated. Criteria were developed to evaluate each site, and minimum standards were established for each criterion. Predicted conditions at the two sites were compared to the requirements for each of the 11 criteria as a means of evaluating site performance. Criteria include land use, community structure, economic impact, access, visual character, noise, air pollution, natural environment, weather, air traffic, and terminal design.

  12. Space Radar Image of San Francisco, California

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    1994-01-01

    This image of San Francisco, California shows how the radar distinguishes between densely populated urban areas and nearby areas that are relatively unsettled. 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, called the SOMA district in San Francisco, appear bright red due to the alignment of streets and buildings to the incoming radar beam. Various bridges in the area are also visible including the Golden Gate Bridge (left center) at the opening of San Francisco Bay, the Bay Bridge (right center) connecting San Francisco and Oakland, and the San Mateo Bridge (bottom center). All the dark areas on the image are relatively smooth water: the Pacific Ocean to the left, San Francisco Bay in the center, and various reservoirs. Two major faults bounding the San Francisco-Oakland urban areas are visible on this image. The San Andreas fault, on the San Francisco peninsula, is seen in the lower left 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. The image is about 42 kilometers by 58 kilometers (26 miles by 36 miles) with north toward the upper right. This area is centered at 37.83 degrees north latitude, 122.38 degrees east longitude. The image was acquired by the Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C/X-band Synthetic Aperture (SIR-C/X-SAR) imaging radar when it flew aboard the space shuttle Endeavour on October 3, 1994. SIR-C/X-SAR, a joint mission of the German, Italian and the United States space agencies, is part of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth.

  13. Chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls in sediment cores from San Francisco Bay

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    Venkatesan, M.I.; De Leon, R. P.; VanGeen, A.; Luoma, S.N.

    1999-01-01

    Sediment cores of known chronology from Richardson and San Pablo Bays in San Francisco Bay, CA, were analyzed for a suite of chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls to reconstruct a historic record of inputs. Total DDTs (DDT = 2,4'- and 4,4'-dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane and the metabolites, 2,4'- and 4,4'-DDE, -DDD) range in concentration from 4-21 ng/g and constitute a major fraction (> 84%) of the total pesticides in the top 70 cm of Richardson Bay sediment. A subsurface maximum corresponds to a peak deposition date of 1969-1974. The first measurable DDT levels are found in sediment deposited in the late 1930's. The higher DDT inventory in the San Pablo relative to the Richardson Bay core probably reflects the greater proximity of San Pablo Bay to agricultural activities in the watershed of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers. Total polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) occur at comparable levels in the two Bays (< 1-34 ng/g). PCBs are first detected in sediment deposited during the 1930's in Richardson Bay, about a decade earlier than the onset of detectable levels of DDTs. PCB inventories in San Pablo Bay are about a factor of four higher in the last four decades than in Richardson Bay, suggesting a distribution of inputs not as strongly weighed towards the upper reaches of the estuary as DDTs. The shallower subsurface maximum in PCBs compared to DDT in the San Pablo Bay core is consistent with the imposition of drastic source control measures four these constituents in 1970 and 1977 respectively. The observed decline in DDT and PCB levels towards the surface of both cores is consistent with a dramatic drop in the input of these pollutants once the effect of sediment resuspension and mixing is taken into account.

    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.

    Identification and assessment of introduced and other toxicants is crucial to any comprehensive study of contaminants within the marine environment. The relationship between DNA single-strand breaks and the exposure of marine organisms to environmental contaminants was examined at sites in San Diego Bay, CA. A comprehensive assessment of the extent and consequences of marine environmental contamination in the area of Naval Station San Diego was conducted in the summer of 1995. The study addressed contamination sources, distributions, concentrations, transport, sediment-water exchange, biological effects, and degradation. The biological effects portion of the study (this paper) included contaminant bioaccumulation, organismal growth, and the determination of DNA single-strand breaks using the Comet assay. DNA damage was determined in hemocytes collected from deployed and resident mussels, Mytilus edulis, at six stations in and around the Naval Station San Diego. Deployed mussels were exposed on station for approximately 30 days in plastic mesh bags, placed 1 m above the bottom. Hemocyte samples were collected on days 0, 12, and 32. It was found that stations exhibiting the extremes of contaminant exposure, both highest and lowest concentrations, were easily identified using growth and DNA damage measurements. Sediment chemistry and bioaccumulation data indicated, Hg, Cu, and Zn, to be the most notable contaminants. The Comet assay, and in particular germ cell DNA damage determinations, were found to respond rapidly to station contaminants. Results from this study and an earlier 1993 study suggest that the non-sediment associated effects observed at one station may have been the result of the photoactivation of accumulated PAHs.

  13. A record of estuarine water contamination from the Cd content of foraminiferal tests in San Francisco Bay, California

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    VanGeen, A.; Luoma, S.N.

    1999-01-01

    A five-year dissolved Cd time series from San Francisco Bay and adjacent coastal water shows that the composition of surface water towards the mouth of the estuary is determined largely by the effect of coastal upwelling. Cd concentrations inside and outside the estuary (0.2-1.0 nmol/kg) increase as Cd-rich deep water is advected to the surface near the coast during spring and summer. On average, the mean Cd concentrations inside San Francisco Bay (0.54 nmol/kg) during 1991-1995 was significantly higher than outside (0.35 nmol/kg), however. Surface samples collected throughout San Francisco Bay confirm an internal Cd source unrelated to river discharge. The Cd content of the test of a benthic foraminifer (Elphidiella hannai) in a dated sediment core from San Francisco Bay was measured to determine if the water column Cd enrichments in San Francisco Bay could be related to the rapid development of the watershed. The method is based on the observation that the Cd/Ca ratio of carefully cleaned tests of foraminifera is, determined by the dissolved Cd content of overlying water at the time of test formation. Pre-industrial foraminiferal Cd/Ca ratios in the sediment core average 274 ?? 15 nmol/mol (n = 19) nmol/mol. Foraminiferal Cd/Ca ratios increased to 386 ?? 33 nmol/mol (n = 19) over the past several decades indicating a 40% increase in the mean Cd content of surface water in Central San Francisco Bay. We suggest that, in addition to Cd discharges into the estuary, indirect consequences of agricultural development in the Central Valley of California could have contributed to this increase. This new method to reconstruct estuarine contamination is not affected by some of the processes that complicate the interpretation of changes in bulk sediment metal concentrations.
