The San Francisco Bay watershed covers 40% of the State of California. Nonpoint source pollutants from cars, lawns, houses, parks and people residing within the watershed contribute contamination into San Francisco Bay. To measure the contribution from our neighborhoods we collected runoff from storm-drains at 10 different sites around San Francisco and tested them for heavy metals, Total Organic Carbons (TOC), and Methylene Blue Active Substances (MBAS) during a six-month period. Each sample site location is situated within one block of each participant's home. The goal of this study was to determine the contaminants contributed as nonpoint source pollution into San Francisco Bay. Our results show that a variety of contaminants are entering the Bay's ecosystem via sources in our residential settings. While this contribution may be thought of as unsubstantial, our results show that our neighborhoods are significant sources of watershed pollution.

Attenuation Tomography of the San Andreas Fault Near Parkfield, CA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

P and S wave spectra from about 400 local earthquakes recorded by the Parkfield Area Seismic Observatory (PASO) network were used to determine spatial variations in seismic attenuation (1/Q) in the region around the San Andreas Fault near Parkfield, CA. Starting with wave speed images derived from arrival time tomography using the same data set, we adapted the finite difference algorithm of Hole and Zelt (1995) to the attenuation tomography algorithm of Shotterbeck and Abers (2002) to account for severe ray bending effects in a medium with strong lateral variations in structure. Results thus far show high attenuation within the heterogeneous Franciscan rocks east of the fault and low attenuation in the Gabilan granites to the west. The fault zone itself is characterized by a region of exceptionally low Q.

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

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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.

Currents and Stratification on the Continental shelf to the Southwest of San Clemente Island, CA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Results of moored current, pressure, temperature and salinity measurements from January 2006 to July 2007 at 130 m depth on the continental shelf offshore Eel Point, San Clemente Island, CA, (mooring located at 32° 55.73'N, 118° 35.50'W) are presented. Statistics for the flow and stratification are presented including probability distribution functions, empirical orthogonal functions, and spectra. The flow field was dominated by persistent poleward flow with two-three flow reversal events per six month period. The structure and possible causes of these flow reversal events are described. Tidal analyses are also presented; higher harmonics of the M2 tide were statistically significant for the onshore flow component.

Diary of an astronaut: examination of the remains of the late Israeli astronaut Colonel Ilan Ramon's Crew Notebook recovered after the loss of NASA's space shuttle Columbia.  

PubMed

Two months after the fatal re-entering into the Earth's atmosphere of Columbia flight STS-107, the remains of Israeli astronaut Colonel Ilan Ramon's Crew Notebook were found strewn in a field in San Augustine County, TX. 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.

Noncharacteristic Slip on the Northern San Andreas Fault at the Vedanta Marsh, Marin County, CA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Three-dimensional excavations along the 1906 trace of the northern San Andreas fault at the Vedanta marsh paleoseismic site near Olema, CA have yielded new data on the timing and amount of slip during the penultimate earthquake on this fault section. The excavations exposed a 3-m-wide paleochannel that has been offset right-laterally 7.8-8.3 m by coseismic slip during the past two large earthquakes: 1906 and the penultimate earthquake. The paleochannel was eroded into a silty clay marsh deposit and was filled after AD 1400. Both the silty clay layer and the paleochannel deposit are directly overlain by an in situ burn/peat sequence. The penultimate earthquake occurred while the peat was at the ground surface whereas faulting from the 1906 earthquake terminates within an overlying gravel/fill sequence. Preliminary OxCal analyses of radiocarbon dates indicate that the penultimate earthquake occurred in the late 17th to early 18th century. In plan view, two main fault traces were mapped in the excavation. The northwestern portion of the paleochannel is offset across a single fault trace. Just southeast of this portion of the channel the fault splits into two traces. We believe that one of these traces likely slipped only during 1906 and the other trace slipped on during the penultimate earthquake. Unfortunately, the overlying stratigraphic section that could resolve the exact reconstruction of movement on these faults is missing due to the excavation of an artificial drainage ditch at this location in the 1940's. Matching the north margin of the paleochannel to the first exposure of gravel in the zone between the two fault traces gives an offset of 5 m. We have historic records that show the 1906 coseismic slip near the study site was about 5m from field notes of David Starr Jordan (Stanford University Archives) who describes two 16 ft (5m) offsets: one of a tree located about 150m SE of the offset channel and the other of a path to the Shafter barn located about 300m NW. As the locations of these two historical records are so close to the study site, it is reasonable to assume that our excavation site has the same amount of coseismic slip in 1906. Our data indicate that the paleochannel was offset about 2.8 to 3.3 m during the penultimate earthquake which occurred in the late 17th to early 18th century, and that the San Andreas fault at this section is capable of slip in earthquakes smaller than 1906.

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

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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.

Pollutants and the health of green sea turtles resident to an urbanized estuary in San Diego, CA.  

PubMed

Rapid expansion of coastal anthropogenic development means that critical foraging and developmental habitats often occur near highly polluted and urbanized environments. Although coastal contamination is widespread, the impact this has on long-lived vertebrates like the green turtle (Chelonia mydas) is unclear because traditional experimental methods cannot be applied. We coupled minimally invasive sampling techniques with health assessments to quantify contaminant patterns in a population of green turtles resident to San Diego Bay, CA, a highly urbanized and contaminated estuary. Several chemicals were correlated with turtle size, suggesting possible differences in physiological processes or habitat utilization between life stages. With the exception of mercury, higher concentrations of carapace metals as well as 4,4'-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) and ? chlordane in blood plasma relative to other sea turtle studies raises important questions about the chemical risks to turtles resident to San Diego Bay. Mercury concentrations exceeded immune function no-effects thresholds and increased carapace metal loads were correlated with higher levels of multiple health markers. These results indicate immunological and physiological effects studies are needed in this population. Our results give insight into the potential conservation risk contaminants pose to sea turtles inhabiting this contaminated coastal habitat, and highlight the need to better manage and mitigate contaminant exposure in San Diego Bay.

Re-evaluation of heat flow data near Parkfield, CA: Evidence for a weak San Andreas Fault  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Improved interpretations of the strength of the San Andreas Fault near Parkfield, CA based on thermal data require quantification of processes causing significant scatter and uncertainty in existing heat flow data. These effects include topographic refraction, heat advection by topographically-driven groundwater flow, and uncertainty in thermal conductivity. Here, we re-evaluate the heat flow data in this area by correcting for full 3-D terrain effects. We then investigate the potential role of groundwater flow in redistributing fault-generated heat, using numerical models of coupled heat and fluid flow for a wide range of hydrologic scenarios. We find that a large degree of the scatter in the data can be accounted for by 3-D terrain effects, and that for plausible groundwater flow scenarios frictional heat generated along a strong fault is unlikely to be redistributed by topographically-driven groundwater flow in a manner consistent with the 3-D corrected data.

San Francisco Estuary Striped Bass Migration History Determined by Electron-microprobe Analysis of Otolith Sr/Ca Ratio  

SciTech Connect

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.

Trace metals in an urbanized estuarine sea turtle food web in San Diego Bay, CA.  

PubMed

San Diego Bay is an anthropogenically impacted waterway that is also a critical habitat for many sensitive species such as the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas). In this study, we quantified trace metal concentrations in sediment and organisms composing the green sea turtle diet, and identified bioaccumulation patterns for a suite of trace metals. We found Ag, Cd, Cu, Mn, Se, and Zn exhibited the highest bioaccumulation levels in this food web. Cu and Mn concentrations in resident biota displayed a strong spatial gradient from the mouth to the head of the Bay, which was different from the patterns found in the sediment itself. Sediment median concentrations followed a general pattern across the bay of Al>Mn>Cu?Zn>Pb>As>Cd>Ag>Se>Hg. In contrast, eelgrass displayed differential patterns in the mouth versus the back of the Bay (three front Bay sites: Al>Mn>Zn>Cu>Pb>Se>Cd?Ag>As; five back Bay sites: Mn>Al>Zn>Cu>Pb?Se>Cd>Ag>Hg>As) with the exception of Shelter Island where levels of Zn and Cu were elevated as a result of anti-fouling paint pollution. Observed differences between sediment and biota metal patterns are likely due to complex processes related to trace metals input and bioavailability, habitat characteristics and specific metabolic functioning of the trace metals for each member of the food web. These data highlight the fact that for the San Diego Bay ecosystem, the current use of toxicity reference values scaled up from sediment and invertebrate testing ex-situ is likely to be inaccurate when transposed to the green sea turtle. Here, we illustrate how identifying spatial variability in metal exposure can improve our understanding of habitat utilization by sea turtles in highly urbanized estuaries. Monitoring contaminants directly in food webs of sensitive vertebrates may greatly improve our understanding of their direct and indirect exposure to potentially deleterious contamination, and should be considered in the future to improve traditional risk assessment approaches.

SAXS, SANS and NSE Studies on “Unbound State” in DPPC/Water/CaCl2 System  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The temperature and CaCl2 concentration dependence of the lamellar repeat distance of a dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) aqueous solution was investigated by small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering, and neutron spin echo. At certain CaCl2 concentrations, the repeat distance in the liquid-crystalline phase tends to increase up to infinity while that in the gel phase has an upper limit. This behavior is attributable to the fact that the steric repulsion of lipid bilayers due to the membrane undulation in the liquid-crystalline phase is larger than that in the gel phase. The free-energy calculation suggested that the cooperation of the short-range electrostatic interaction and the long-range steric interaction is the origin of the increase in the repeat distance in the liquid-crystalline phase, and it can be the origin of an “unbinding transition”.

Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry of the Centennial Re-survey of the San Jacinto Mountains, CA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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, ?15N of plants at more arid stations are more positive by 3-5‰. Plants on westward facing slopes have more negative ?15N (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 ?13C, 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.

Subsurface imaging of the eastern Ramon fault, Wadi Neqarot, south Israel  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Ramon fault is a major element within the Central Sinai-Negev shear zone, extending across the Negev and central Sinai, from the Dead Sea Transform (DST) to the Gulf of Suez. Right lateral strike-slip motion, dated as post early Miocene, has been recorded along several elements of this system. Some evidence of earlier activity has been noticed along several faults belonging to this system, but only in few cases the nature of this activity is known. The eastern part of the Ramon fault from Wadi Geled to the DST is known from surface geology as a high angle reverse fault. A vertical separation of almost 200 meters is based on lower Cretaceous sandstone abutting upper Cretaceous units. Recent seismic lines carried out across the eastern segment of the Ramon fault reveal new information from subsurface concerning the geometry and history of the Ramon fault zone. We suggest two alternative models to image the subsurface, both leaning on interpretation of seismic lines across the fault. No other subsurface stratigraphic information apart from a distant borehole was available to this research. The first model show three phases of deformation: I. Post Triassic tensional phase, forming normal fault. This fault changes its inclination from a sub vertical angle at surface to a sub horizontal within few hundred meters. II. Compressional phase, during the late Cretaceous, which recorded by a thicker section of units at south of the fault compared to northern part. III. Deformation which took place after early Miocene, and based on surface geology. The second model based on structural considerations and consists of two phases of deformation I. Post Triassic normal fault, which form a listric fault within few hundred meters. II. Post Miocene reverse faulting, which is a reactivation phase along same fault plane that is also responsible for the antithetic reverse faults.

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

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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.

Pore fluid ‘ages’ suggest fluid replacement events across the San Andreas Fault at Depth, Parkfield, CA (Invited)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The presence of aqueous reaction produced low strength mineral surfaces is linked to low friction slip along the San Andreas Fault Zone (SAFZ) as shown in core samples recovered from the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) in Parkfield, CA. These mineral phases are a product of fluid-rock interaction in the fault zone. SAFOD drill cores show multiple zones of alteration and deformation due to fluid-rock interaction (Schleicher et. al, 2008), which requires transport of fluids into the fault zone. We present pore fluid ages, age gradients, as well as 3He and 4He isotope profiles of matrix fluids obtained from drill core samples during SAFOD phases 1, 2, and 3 to constrain fluid flow across the SAFZ. Helium and argon concentration profiles in the pore fluids suggest the fault represents a sink for 3He, 4He and 40Ar. The 3He/4He profile across the SAFZ confirms the mantle helium signature is introduced from the North American Plate side of the SAFOD drillhole and the lack of mantle-derived fluid component through the fault zone. Noble gas measurements on the solid phase indicate that more than 90% of in situ produced He has entered the fluid phase. The presence of mantle-derived He in both plates and the fault zone suggests that the fluids are accumulating both locally produced and externally produced He. Apparent maximum pore fluid ages range from ˜300,000-700,000 years (3050m-measured depth (MD)) in the Pacific Plate and ˜300,000 -500,000 years (3989m-MD) in the North American Plate, compared to relatively younger ages of <200,000 years in the actively creeping trace of the SAFZ at 3300m-MD. The pore fluid ages suggest fluid flow events on these or shorter timescales in the respective zones. Each fluid event results into further dissolution and precipitation in the SAFZ creating a new layer of minerals, which in turn can enhance further slip along the fault.

HCV infection prevalence lower than expected among 18-40-year-old injection drug users in San Diego, CA.  

PubMed

San Diego, California shares the world's busiest land border crossing with Tijuana, Mexico-a city where 95 % of injection drug users (IDUs) test hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody-positive. Yet, little is known about the prevalence and risk behaviors for HCV among IDUs in San Diego. In 2009-2010, 18-40-year-old IDUs in San Diego County completed a risk assessment interview and serologic testing for HCV and HIV infection. Recruitment involved respondent-driven sampling, venue-based sampling at a syringe exchange program, and convenience sampling. Correlates of HCV infection were identified by multivariable logistic regression. Among 510 current IDUs, 26.9 % (95 % CI 23.0-30.7 %) and 4.2 % (95 % CI 2.4-5.9 %) had been infected with HCV and HIV, respectively. Overall, median age was 28 years; 74 % were male; 60 % white and 29 % Hispanic; and 96 % were born in the U.S. Median years of injecting was 6; 41 % injected daily; 60 % injected heroin most often; 49 % receptively shared syringes and 68 % shared other injection paraphernalia; and only 22 % reported always using new syringes in the past 3 months. Two thirds had ever traveled to Mexico and 19 % injected in Mexico. HCV infection was independently associated with sharing injection paraphernalia (adjusted odds ratio [AOR]?=?1.69) and SEP use (AOR?=?2.17) in the previous 3 months, lifetime history of drug overdose (AOR?=?2.66), and increased years of injecting (AOR?=?2.82, all P values <0.05). Controlling for recruitment method did not alter results. HCV infection prevalence among IDUs in San Diego was modest compared to other US cities and much lower than Tijuana. Given that known individual-level HCV risk factors were common in San Diego, the city's lower HCV prevalence might be due to differences in social and structural factors between the cities.

Magnetostratigraphy and Rotation of Pleistocene Sedimentary Rocks in the San Jacinto Fault zone, Western Salton Trough, CA.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Pleistocene sedimentary rocks in the San Felipe Hills (SFH) and Borrego Badlands (BB), Salton Trough, are deformed by the diffuse seismogenic San Jacinto fault zone. The Plio-Pleistocene lacustrine Borrego Fm is sharply overlain by the alluvial Ocotillo Fm in the southwest (BB and Ocotillo Badlands) and its finer-grained equivalent (Brawley Fm) in the northeast (SFH). This contact records rapid progradation of alluvium and termination of paleo Borrego Lake in response to initiation or reorganization of the San Jacinto fault. We sampled these units in measured sections at Oil Well Wash (in the SFH) and Beckman Wash (in the BB), and collected a thick composite section that includes all of the Borrego Fm in the southern BB. Sites were located at 10-50 m intervals in each section. Paleomagnetic results from 31 sites in the Oil Well Wash and Beckman Wash sections have well-defined components of magnetization in most samples. A persistent magnetic overprint, and some mineralogical alteration during thermal demagnetization, hampers analysis of magnetization vectors in some sites. Our results indicate that the age of the Ocotillo and Brawley Fms ranges from 0.5-0.6 Ma to 1.0-1.1 Ma, based on the presence of the Brunhes / Matuyama boundary and Jaramillo sub-chron in both sections, and Bishop ash in the BB. The Borrego-Ocotillo contact coincides with the base of the Jaramillo in both sections and in the nearby Ocotillo Badlands section (Brown et al., 1991). This result is consistent with evidence for a depositional hiatus at the contact in the BB section and an erosional disconformity at Oil Well Wash. Sites with well-defined directions and k>16 can be used to determine vertical-axis rotations. In Beckman Wash the tilt-corrected mean is D=360, I=38.2, k=48, \\alpha95=8.1° , N=8, indicating little or no rotation. In Oil Well Wash the tilt-corrected mean is D=8.5, I=61.1, k=51.0, \\alpha95=9.5° , N=6, indicating a cw rotation of 8.5° \\pm$5.7° . Combined, these data lead us to conclude that only minor (8° or less) rotation has occurred in the two areas since 1.0 Ma, despite structural and stratigraphic evidence for significant fault reorganization during this time. The larger (35° ) clockwise rotation documented in the Fish Creek-Vallecitos Basin (Johnson et al, 1983) may have occurred prior to 1.0 Ma, but the timing and amount of rotation is poorly known in that area and will be tested in future work.

Quantifying Beach Response to Episodic Large Wave Events, a Predictive Empirical Model, Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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.

In memoriam: Celso-Ramon Garcia, M.D. (1922-2004), reproductive medicine visionary  

PubMed Central

This article traces the career of Celso-Ramon Garcia (1922–2004), noted physician, educator, and internationally renowned pioneer in the field of reproductive endocrinology. His work helped to formulate oral contraceptives used by millions of women throughout the world. Garcia's research collaborators included Gregory Pincus and John Rock, who together finalized the landmark clinical data needed to secure initial FDA approval for "the pill" in 1960. In addition to Garcia's monumental work in contraceptive endocrinology, his scholarly interests encompassed physiology of the menopause, minimally invasive reproductive surgery, as well as psychological aspects of infertility. Closely identified with the University of Pennsylvania, Garcia was instrumental in establishing the first formal clinical program in reproductive biology and influenced countless young scientists whose training he supervised and mentored. His distinguished career was emblematic of the best of the medical profession, characterized by compassion, intellect, and a sincere desire to help others. Our manuscript outlines Garcia's wide range of interests, acknowledges his superior fund of knowledge, and honors his humanitarian spirit – all of which contributed to an impressive legacy of medical discoveries. The impact of Prof. Garcia's work will continue to be felt for many years.

Water management controls net carbon exchange in drained and flooded agricultural peatlands in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, CA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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.

Modeling Evaluation of Retention and Release of Atmospheric Deposition N in Mixed Coniferous Forests, San Bernardino National Forest, CA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Atmospheric N deposition usually benefits N limited forests; however, sustained high deposition may cause N saturation in ecosystems. This study presents a modeling analysis on soil-plant ecosystem retention of N deposition and its releases using DAYCENT at two mixed coniferous forest sites, Camp Paivika (CP) and Barton Flats (BF). These sites represent high and low levels of N depositions (currently about 70 and 10 kgN ha-1 yr-1) in the San Bernardino Mountains, California. In addition to differences in N deposition CP has annual precipitation of 105.7 cm while BF average 48.7 cm. Using available information, DAYCENT was calibrated to simulate biomass and SOM accumulation reasonably well, but underestimated litter C likely due to lack of ozone injury induced litter-fall in the model. The model also competently predicted biomass C/N ratios. Model showed that the ecosystem retained 80-90% of deposition N with SOM the largest retention pool (40-50%) at both sites. At the high-N and wet CP, the litter stored higher percentage (20-25%)of deposition N than plants (10-15%), while in reverse at the low-N and dry BF site. This difference could be related to plant N uptake per biomass production (1.8 gN per kgC at CP and 1.2 gN per kgC at BF) and immobilization/mineralization ratios (0.83 at CP and 0.74 at BF) due to the contrasted litter/SOM accumulation and soil wetness. It showed that about 40% of added N was captured by plants for about 10 years since N deposition, and up to 50% was incorporated into litter in about 20 years. While it took 40~50 years for SOM pool to immobilize 40% of total N deposited. Meanwhile soil inorganic N was gradually accumulating up to 9 mg kg-1 at CP while only 1.5 mg kg-1 at BF. The model demonstrated that a large amount of N was released to the atmosphere (5-15 kgN ha-1 at CP and <1-4 kgN ha-1 at BF), because of seasonal inconsistency of N addition and plant production, and high soil saturation during winter period. However, N losses into aquatic systems occurred in the late winters of the wet years, and were therefore highly variable from negligible to 5-12 kgN ha-1 when high precipitation occurred at CP, but only 0.1-0.3 kgN ha-1 at BF. This modeling analysis demonstrated that forest atmospheric deposition induced N saturation and possible environmental impacts are a comprehensive expression of fast plant physiological responses with lagged soil biogeochemical processes. These responses occur in a context of environmental driving forces, specifically the precipitation regime in this study.

Decadal to Multi-centennial SST Reconstructions From the Anthropocene Into the Last 2 Millennia: Planktonic Foraminiferal Mg/Ca Evidence From San Lazaro Basin (NE Pacific)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

On inter-annual time scales, the El Niño / Southern Oscillation (ENSO) climatic phenomenon is the largest driver of change in the ocean-atmosphere system. Significant impacts also arise from longer-term phenomena at decadal to centennial timescales, such as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO). It is a primary interest to understand how modern global warming has impacted such drivers of significant climatic impacts, and how the marine sedimentary archive records this linkage in the southern California Current (CC). This would allow detailed comparison against other high-resolution archives, such as corals, and an improved ability to interpret past events as potential analogs for the future of ENSO and PDO. Furthermore, such reconstructions in recent millennia are crucial, since they record pre-anthropogenic climates under interglacial (warm) boundary conditions that allow us to characterize the nature of modern influence on this system. Here we present sub-decadal reconstructions of sea surface temperature (SST), derived from the Mg/Ca ratio of the shallow-dwelling planktonic foraminifera Globigerinoides ruber. The samples come from San Lázaro Basin in the southern Baja California continental margin (25°N; 112°W), situated beneath the dynamic boundary of the cool eastern Pacific boundary CC of northern origin, and the warm subtropical water masses of southern origin. The bottom of this coastal basin (maximum depth of 540m) is bathed by oxygen-depleted waters that flow over a shallow sill at 370m. High levels of primary production and export of biogenic particles to depth ensue from strong seasonal upwelling processes during spring to early summer. This combination of high sediment production and preservation in an area very sensitive to ENSO and PDO impacts allows for a high-resolution reconstruction of inter-annual climatic phenomena in this unique eastern boundary current setting. For our highest temporal detail, we examine 2 cores at interannual resolution for the past ~90 years, which we use to validate our proxy against instrumental SSTs. This variability is effectively traced by Mg/Ca in G. ruber, which has an affinity for warmer waters during summer. We then sampled down-core continuously at a temporal resolution between 4-6 years, tracking inter-decadal to centennial variability and capturing well PDO-driven variability, which further enables reconstruction of southern CC response to Northern Hemisphere multi-decadal to centennial anomalies, such as the Little Ice Age and the relatively warmer Medieval Warm Period. Our record shows no significant 20th-century departure relative to earlier centuries, thus resembling a "hockey stick without a blade". We will present the complete 1200-year composite reconstruction, and explore causes for 20th-century and earlier discrepancies, as well as decadal to multi-centennial modes of cyclicity and variability. We will also compare our record in detail to available and appropriate ENSO and PDO reconstructions from the region.

Concentrations and time trends of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in aquatic bird eggs from San Francisco Bay, CA 2000-2003  

USGS Publications Warehouse

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.

San Marino.  

PubMed

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

Identification of prognostic and predictive markers in pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Highlights from the "2011 ASCO Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium". San Francisco, CA, USA. January 20-22, 2011.  

PubMed

Pancreatic cancer remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. While increasing treatment options have improved outcomes for many patients, they have also complicated decision-making for treatment. Unfortunately, most patients with pancreatic cancer die from their disease. Prognostic and predictive markers could play a role to improve treatment by identifying patients who may or may not require a given therapy, and determining those most likely to benefit from a therapy. At the 2011 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium held in San Francisco, January 2011, several interesting abstracts were presented that focused on prognostic and predictive markers associated with pancreatic adenocarcinomas. These abstracts discuss progress made in identifying molecular subtypes of pancreatic cancers that may provide insight into selection of patients likely to benefit from certain therapies.

Fault-Bounded Late Neogene Sedimentary Deposits in the Santa Rosa Mountains, Southern CA: Constraints on the Evolution of the San Jacinto Fault  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the Santa Rosa Mountains (SRM) on the W side of the Salton Trough, a late Neogene sedimentary sequence (Zosel sequence, ZS) in the hanging wall of the E-dipping Zosel normal fault (ZFHW) has implications for the geologic history of the southern San Andreas Fault (SAF) system. The upper conglomeratic part of the ZS records the culmination of slip on the ZF, which preceded strike-slip faulting on the right-lateral San Jacinto Fault (SJF) a few km to the W. The conglomerate is an alluvial-fan complex of fluvial, debris-flow, and rock-avalanche deposits that prograded NE over underlying paralic and marine deposits. Clasts are ?10m, and fluvial imbrications indicate mean streamflow trending ~N30E; paleocurrent indicators and clast compositions suggest sediment was derived mainly from granitoid terrains SW of the SRM. Deposition appears to have ceased by early Quaternary time: cosmogenic analysis of boulders from the eroded upper surface of the ZS indicates min and max exposure ages of 500Ka and 1.3Ma (Ne in qtz), 514Ka to 1.17Ma (Ne in hbl), and 647Ka to 1.158Ma (He). Granitoid clasts include distinctive texturally massive hbl- bio tonalite unlike any basement rock exposed in the SRM or in other footwall crystalline terranes directly to the W. The tonalite clasts are similar to bedrock in the White Wash (WW) area 24 km to the NW on the W side of the Clark strand of the SJF (SJFC). Initial Sr ratios for WW samples range from 0.70622 to 0.70631; ZS clasts range from 0.70615 to 0.70638. One sample from ZS and WW have identical light REE patterns that appear to be unique in the Peninsular Ranges batholith. U/Pb zircon ages for WW samples range from 96.6 to 98.2Ma while ZS clasts range from 95.8 to 98.7Ma. Based on these data, tonalite clasts in the ZS match tonalite now exposed in the WW area. We propose the following reconstruction: (1) From 6Ma to 1.2Ma, Zosel sediment is deposited near sea level as an alluvial-fan and fan-delta complex interfingering NE-ward with paralic and marine sediment. Deposition occurs on the ZFHW as it drops relative to footwall rocks, including the WW tonalite terrane. (2) ZS deposition ceases by1.2Ma, as right slip on SJFC succeeds detachment-style normal slip on the ZF. (3) Subsequently, complex en-echelon fault relations within the evolving SJF zone produce large vertical and horizontal displacements in the SRM region. Extensional collapse of the WW terrane and neighboring areas occurs between the right-stepping Coyote Creek strand and SJFC, while contraction across a regional left step between the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults simultaneously uplifts the main body of the SRM, including marine ZS now situated 600m above sea level. This implies that the ZF hanging wall rose more than 600m relative to sea level, apparently buoyed up together with underlying footwall crystalline rocks. (4) Relative vertical displacement between the SRM core and its downdropped W flanks was accommodated by down-to-the-SW slip on the Santa Rosa Fault and associated listric mega-landslide blocks N and NW of Clark Lake Valley (CLV). These events downdropped CLV and produced the high-relief W face of the SRM. (5) The unique WW tonalite terrane is displaced dextrally ~24km, leaving behind a cross-fault counterpart presumably concealed deep beneath NW CLV. This apparently represents total displacement on all strands of the SJF zone since ~1.2Ma, implying a minimum slip rate of about 20mm/yr.

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

USGS Publications Warehouse

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.

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)

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 152.5±2 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.

Superfund Record of Decision (EPA Region 9): Solvent Service Superfund site, San Jose, CA. (First remedial action), September 1990. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The 3-acre Solvent Service (SSI) site is an active treatment, storage and disposal facility in San Jose, California. Since 1983, SSI has been operated as a treatment, storage, and disposal facility. Mixed and segregated solvents have been recycled by a variety of methods including distillation, separation, and blending. After VOCs were detected in the ground water, the California Water Quality Control Board adopted Waste Discharge Requirements requiring further site investigations and implementation of interim remedial measures. In 1988 and then again in 1989, the Board adopted Revised Waste Disposal Requirements requiring completion of the pollution investigation, final installation of soil cleanup measures, and submittal of an RI/FS and RAP. SSI is currently operating a containment/extraction system for the ground water plume. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, toluene, and xylenes.

The Social and Environmental Context of Cross-border Drug Use in Mexico: Findings from a Mixed Methods Study of Young IDUs Living in San Diego, CA  

PubMed Central

We report the results of qualitative (n=19) and quantitative (n=545) interviews with young injection drug users (IDUs) in San Diego, California, USA about their experiences using drugs in Tijuana, Mexico, and associated risks for HIV infection. Young IDUs who have ever traveled to Mexico (n=365) used a variety of injection (54%) and non-injection (30%) drugs there, and appear to be heavier users than those who have never traveled to Mexico. Sociocultural themes influencing drug use in Mexico included: interactions amongst the purpose of travel, drug preference, and route of administration; familiarity with the border region; evolving relationships with the US and Mexican drug markets; and the experience of crossing the US/Mexico border. Interventions for IDUs in border regions need to be sensitive to the ethnicity, familiarity with the border region, and life history of participants, as well as differences in national policies that could influence drug use and risk for HIV on both sides of the border.

Synthetic Streams Constructed for Multi-policy Framework, Marin County, CA, Reveal Right-lateral Offset Drainages 5.5 km Offshore of San Andreas Fault  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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

Geologic Investigation of a Potential Site for a Next-Generation Reactor Neutrino Oscillation Experiment -- Diablo Canyon, San Luis Obispo County, CA  

SciTech Connect

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.

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

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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.

ENSO- and PDO-modulated SST Reconstructions From the Anthropocene Into the Last 2 Millennia: Planktonic Foraminiferal Mg/Ca Evidence at Inter-annual Resolution From San Lázaro Basin (NE Pacific)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

On inter-annual time scales, the El Niño / Southern Oscillation (ENSO) climatic phenomenon is the largest driver of change in the ocean-atmosphere system. As such, it is a primary interest to understand how modern global warming has impacted ENSO, and how the marine sedimentary archive records this linkage in the southern California Current (CC). This would allow detailed comparison against other high-resolution archives, such as corals, and an improved ability to interpret past events as potential analogs for the future of ENSO. Furthermore, such reconstructions in recent millennia are crucial, since they record pre- anthropogenic climates under interglacial (warm) boundary conditions that allow us to characterize the nature of modern influence on this system. Here we present sub-decadal reconstructions of sea surface temperature (SST), derived from the Mg/Ca ratio of the shallow-dwelling planktonic foraminifera Globigerinoides ruber. The samples come from San Lázaro Basin in the southern Baja California continental margin (25° N; 112° W), situated beneath the dynamic boundary of the cool eastern Pacific boundary CC of northern origin, and the warm subtropical water masses of southern origin. The bottom of this coastal basin (maximum depth of 540m) is bathed by oxygen-depleted waters that flow over a shallow sill at 370m. High levels of primary production and export of biogenic particles to depth ensue from strong seasonal upwelling processes during spring to early summer. This combination of high sediment production and preservation in an area very sensitive to ENSO impact allows for a high-resolution reconstruction of inter-annual climatic phenomena in this unique eastern boundary current setting. For our highest temporal detail, we examine 2 cores at interannual resolution for the past ~90 years, which we use to validate our proxy against instrumental SSTs. This variability is effectively traced by Mg/Ca in G. ruber, which has an affinity for warmer waters during summer. We then sampled down-core continuously at a temporal resolution between 4-6 years, tracking inter-decadal to centennial variability and capturing the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), which further enables reconstruction of southern CC response to Northern Hemisphere multi-decadal to centennial anomalies, such as the Little Ice Age and the relatively warmer Medieval Warm Period. Our record shows no significant 20th-century departure relative to earlier centuries, thus resembling a "hockey stick without a blade". We will explore causes for this and other discrepancies, as well as cyclicity with respect to inter-annual climate phenomena.

Earthquakes: San Francisco  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The prediction of earthquakes may be inexact, but it is vital, especially when large cities such as San Francisco or Los Angeles are threatened. The San Andreas Fault and two other faults, the Heyward and Calaveras faults, all have the potential to deliver a massive earthquake to the San Francisco Bay area. In this video segment, a seismologist explains the historical pattern of seismic activity in the Bay area, and how this information may be used to predict the location and timing of San Francisco's next big earthquake. The segment is three minutes twenty-eight seconds in length. A background essay and discussion questions are included.

We mapped over 70 faults in the San Gorgonio Pass-San Bernardino Mountains region using the

San Francisco disaster  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

A silent film from May of 1906 that seeks to simulate the San Francisco fire and earthquake using a small-scale model of the city. The film's realism and accuracy are questionable-the flames reach unrealistic heights, and the real fire was more scattered than the flame shown-but it marks an early attempt to visualize and recreate the disaster. The film is available in Real Media, QuickTime and MPEG format.

Paradoxical Effect of Increased Diastolic Ca2+ Release and Decreased Sinoatrial Node Activity in a Mouse Model of Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia  

PubMed Central

Background Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT) is characterized by stress-triggered syncope and sudden death. CPVT patients manifest sino-atrial node (SAN) dysfunction, the mechanisms of which remain unexplored. Methods and Results We investigated SAN [Ca2+]i handling in mice carrying the CPVT-linked mutation of ryanodine receptor (RyR2R4496C) and on their wild-type (WT) littermates. In vivo telemetric recordings showed impaired SAN automaticity in RyR2R4496C mice following Isoproterenol (ISO) injection, analogous to what was observed in CPVT patients after exercise. Pacemaker activity was explored by measuring spontaneous [Ca2+]i transients in SAN cells within the intact SAN by confocal microscopy. RyR2R4496C SAN presented significantly slower pacemaker activity and impaired chronotropic response under ?-adrenergic stimulation, accompanied by the appearance of pauses (in spontaneous [Ca2+]i transients and action potentials) in 75% of the cases. Ca2+ spark frequency was increased by 2-fold in RyR2R4496C SAN. Whole-cell patch-clamp experiments performed on isolated RyR2R4496C SAN cells showed that L-type Ca2+ current (ICa,L) density was reduced by ~50%, an effect blunted with internal Ca2+ buffering. ISO dramatically increased the frequency of Ca2+ sparks and waves by ~5 and ~10-fold, respectively. Interestingly, the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+ content was significantly reduced in RyR2R4496C SAN cells in the presence of ISO, which may contribute to stopping the “Ca2+-clock” rhythm generation, originating SAN pauses. Conclusions The increased activity of RyR2R4496C in SAN leads to an unanticipated decrease on SAN automaticity by Ca2+-dependent decrease of ICa,L and SR Ca2+ depletion during diastole, identifying subcellular pathophysiologic alterations contributing to the SAN dysfunction in CPVT patients.

Reactivity of San Andres dolomite  

SciTech Connect

The San Andres formation is routinely stimulated with acid. Although numerous acidizing simulators are available to aid in treatment optimization, existing reactivity data were generated with quarried rock rather than formation samples. This paper presents reactivity data for five San Andres dolomite samples. These data can be used in most fracture-acidizing-design simulators to allow more accurate simulation of the acidizing process.

The project is based at their Oviatt Library, and it contains historically significant documents, manuscripts, photographs and related graphic materials from public and private collections in the San Fernando Valley. The project started in 2000, and today visitors can browse the collection at their leisure. First-time visitors can look over the "Topics" here, which include "Animals", "Economics", "Industries", and six other areas. The "Communities" area features a fun map with all of the communities of the area on it. Clicking on one of the icons will take users to archived items associated with each place. Also, visitors shouldn't miss the "Transportation" tab as they can view classic images of the old Pacific Electric Railway as well as images of early bus terminals and more contemporary shots of Amtrak in action.

Fusion of 40Ca + 40Ca, 40Ca + 48Ca and 48Ca + 48Ca  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The recent experiment on fusion of 40Ca + 40Ca is described in some detail and the results are reported. A full excitation function has been measured from well above the Coulomb barrier, down to low energies where the cross section reduces to ?20 µb. A comparison is done with the recently published data on fusion of 40Ca + 48Ca and of 48Ca + 48Ca. The trends are different, in particular as far as the logarithmic derivatives (slopes) are concerned, in the interesting energy region below the barrier. The slope for systems where 40Ca is involved, show a characteristic behavior with a tendency to saturate in a limited energy range just below the main barrier. The slopes resume increasing at lower energies, possibly indicating the influence of nuclear structure (the strong octupole vibration of 40Ca) at such low energies, together with the clear presence of the fusion hindrance phenomenon. The results of coupled-channels calculations are presented.

San Andreas drilling sites selected  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A new initiative for drilling and coring directly into the San Andreas fault at depths up to 10 km is being proposed by an international team of scientists led by Mark Zoback, Stanford University; Steve Hickman and Bill Ellsworth, U.S. Geological Survey; and Lee Younker, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. In addition to exhuming samples of fault rock and fluids from seismogenic depths, the hole will be used to make a wide range of geophysical measurements within the fault zone and to monitor the fault zone over time. Four areas along the San Andreas have been selected as candidates for deep drilling: the Mojave segment of the San Andreas between Leona Valley and Big Pine, the Carrizo Plain, the San Francisco Peninsula between Los Altos and Daly City, and the Northern Gabilan Range between the Cienga winery and Melendy Ranch. These sites were chosen from an initial list compiled at the International Fault Zone Drilling Workshop held in Asilomar, Calif., in December 1992 and at meetings held this winter and spring in Menlo Park, Calif.

Has the San Gabriel fault been offset  

SciTech Connect

The San Gabriel fault (SGF) in southern California is a right-lateral, strike-slip fault extending for 85 mi in an arcuate, southwestward-bowing curve from near the San Andreas fault at Frazier Mountain to its intersection with the left-lateral San Antonio Canyon fault (SACF) in the eastern San Gabriel Mountains. Termination of the SGF at the presently active SACF is abrupt and prompts the question Has the San Gabriel Fault been offset. Tectonic and geometric relationships in the area suggest that the SGF has been offset approximately 6 mi in a left-lateral sense and that the offset continuation of the SGF, across the SACF, is the right-lateral, strike-slip San Jacinto fault (SJF), which also terminates at the SACF. Reversing the left-lateral movement on the SACF to rejoin the offset ends of the SGF and SJF reveals a fault trace that is remarkably similar in geometry and movement (and perhaps in tectonic history), to the trace of the San Andreas fault through the southern part of the San Bernardino Mountains. The relationship of the Sierra Madre-Cucamonga fault system to the restored SGF-SJF fault is strikingly similar to the relationship of the Banning fault to the Mission Creek-Mill Creek portion of the San Andreas fault. Structural relations suggest that the San Gabriel-San Jacinto system predates the San Andreas fault in the eastern San Gabriel Mountains and that continuing movement on the SACF is currently affecting the trace of the San Andreas fault in the Cajon Pass area.

Deglaciation and postglacial timberline in the San Juan Mountains, Colorado  

USGS Publications Warehouse

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.

Microscopic study of Ca + Ca fusion  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We investigate the fusion barriers for reactions involving Ca isotopes 40Ca+40Ca, 40Ca+48Ca, and 48Ca+48Ca using the microscopic time-dependent Hartree-Fock (TDHF) theory coupled with a density constraint. In this formalism the fusion barriers are directly obtained from TDHF dynamics. We also study the excitation of the preequilibrium GDR for the 40Ca+48Ca system and the associated ?-ray emission spectrum. Fusion cross sections are calculated using the incoming-wave boundary condition approach. We examine the dependence of fusion barriers on collision energy as well as on the different parametrizations of the Skyrme interaction.

Metamorphism of San Antonio Terrane metapelites, San Gabriel Mountains, California  

SciTech Connect

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.

Striped Bass Habitat use in the San Francisco Estuary Determined Using Otolith Microchemistry Techniques  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Habitat use has been shown to be an important factor in the bioaccumulation of contaminants in striped bass ( Morone saxatilis). This study explores techniques to determine migration in striped bass as part of a larger study investigating maternal transfer of xenobiotics to progeny in the San Francisco Estuary. The timing of movement of fish between salt and fresh water can easily be determined using a number of chemical markers in otoliths. Determining movement within estuaries, however, is a more difficult problem because mesohaline geochemical signatures approach the marine end member at very low salinities. Two tracers were used to reconstruct the migration history of striped bass in the San Francisco Estuary: Sr/Ca (measured by electron microprobe and LA-ICP-MS) and Sr isotope ratio (measured by LA-MC-ICP-MS). Both tracers can be used to map the salinity the fish is exposed to at the time of otolith increment deposition. Salinity, in turn, is mapped to location within the San Francisco Bay estuary based on monthly salinity surveys. The two methods have their respective benefits. Sr/Ca can be measured with higher spatial resolution (<10 microns). Sr isotope ratios are not modulated by metabolism. Sr isotope measurements were made to check the Sr/Ca results. In the San Francisco Estuary, low 87Sr/86Sr (0.706189) river water mixes with high 87Sr/86Sr (0.709168) marine water to 80% of the marine signal (0.7085) when the salinity is only 5% (1.8 ppt) seawater, and 95% of the marine signal (0.7090) at salinities of 20% (6.6 ppt) seawater (Ingram and Sloan, 1992). This salinity model should map directly to the otolith because there is no biological fractionation of Sr isotopes. The Sr/Ca otolith and salinity models predict a similar response. For both models, calculated otolith salinity is mapped to location within the San Francisco Estuary based on monthly salinity surveys. Using previously published salinity models, the otolith Sr/Ca and Sr isotope results are offset. These results suggest that a new Sr/Ca salinity model must be developed for this population of striped bass.

Small angle neutron scattering (SANS and V-SANS) study of asphaltene aggregates in crude oil.  

PubMed

We report small angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments on two crude oils. Analysis of the high-Q SANS region has probed the asphaltene aggregates in the nanometer length scale. We find that the radius of gyration decreases with increasing temperature. We show that SANS measurements on crude oils give similar aggregate sizes to those found from SANS measurements of asphaltenes redispersed in deuterated toluene. The combined use of SANS and V-SANS on crude oil samples has allowed the determination of the radius of gyration of large scale asphaltene aggregates of approximately 0.45 microm. This has been achieved by the fitting of Beaucage functions over two size regimes. Analysis of the fitted Beaucage functions at very low-Q has shown that the large scale aggregates are not simply made by aggregation of all the smaller nanoaggregates. Instead, they are two different aggregates coexisting. PMID:19063643

Rapid episodic fluid flow within the San Andreas Fault--based on drill core samples recovered during the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) drilling project  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The long-term evolution of the San Andreas Fault (SAF) system is recorded in the chemistry of the rocks. The pore fluids have recorded the last fluid event likely related to a stick-slip motion (rupture) while the solid phase chemistry is dominated by the subsequent evolution to a stable-sliding fault (creep). We constrain the timescale of localized fluid flow and mineral formation in the SAF at seismogenic depths (~2700m) near Parkfield, CA, based on drill cores samples recovered during the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) drilling project. Helium isotope and concentration data exclude recent upward or perpendicular fluid flow as an explanation for the weakness of the fault. However, our data indicate that shallow oxic meteoric water reached the seismogenic zone on timescales as short as <5ky forming hydrated clay minerals of similar ages that are responsible for the creeping behavior of the SAF.

Contrast variation by nuclear polarisation in SANS  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In order to study properties of block-copolymers, SANS with dynamic nuclear polarisation is taken from polymers in frozen solution. Bulk scattering from toluene and from ortho-terphenyl has been compared. The experimental results show that OTP is a polymer solvent which gives a modest scattering contribution itself in the glassy state. The strong influence of proton polarisation on SANS from a block-copolymer (polystyrene D-H in OTP) is shown.

Isotope constraints on the involvement of fluids in the San Andreas Fault System, California  

SciTech Connect

Fluids are suspected to play a major role in earthquake mechanics, especially in the case of the weak San Andreas Fault (SAF). Models developed to explain the weakness of the fault are similar but rely on different fluid sources. A recent study of groundwaters associated with the SAF has provided evidence for a geopressured mantle fluid source (Kennedy et al., 1997). We present here an isotope study comparing deformation zones (gouges, breccias, fault veins, slickensides, cataclasites), and vein fillings with their hosts and the fluids associated with these materials, as sampled by fluid inclusions. We are investigating ca. 250 samples from over 20 localities along the San Andreas and adjacent faults from South San Francisco to East Los Angeles. Samples from the exhumed San Gabriel Fault, a deeper equivalent of the SAF, are included as well as samples from the Santa Ynez Fault, another former strand of the SAF embedded in Miocene limestones. All the major lithologies (granites, gneisses, sandstones, limestones, marbles and serpentinites) have been sampled for isotope analyses of C, O, H, He, Ne, Ar, Sr, Nd, and Pb.

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

PubMed

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.

Ca Isotopic Ratios in Igneous Rocks: Some Preliminary Results  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Calcium (Ca) is the 5th most abundant element on the Earth, and it is an important geochemical and cosmochemical tracer. It has six isotopes and only H and He have a larger percentage mass difference (?m/m) between the heaviest and the lightest isotopes. Systematic Ca isotopic studies have mostly focused on low-temperature geochemical processes, and most Ca isotopic analyses have been applied on modern and ancient marine carbonates and sulphates, documenting large and systematic isotopic variations, which were used to infer the chemical evolution of seawater. Detailed work on igneous rocks is very limited. Here we show two examples of how stable Ca isotopic ratios can be a useful geochemical tool in understanding igneous processes. Ca isotopic fractionation between coexisting clinopyroxene and orthopyroxene from mantle peridotites: We report Ca isotopic ratios on co-existing clino- and ortho-pyroxenes from Kilbourne Hole and San Carlos mantle peridotites. The 44Ca/40Ca in orthopyroxenes is ~0.5 per mil heavier than that in co-existing clinopyroxenes. Combined with published Ca isotopic data on low-temperature Ca-bearing minerals (calcite, aragonite and barite), we show that the fractionation of Ca isotopes between Ca-bearing minerals (at both low-temperature and high-temperature) is primarily controlled by the strength of Ca-O bond in the minerals. The mineral with shorter (i.e., stronger) Ca-O bond yields heavier Ca isotopic ratio. Using our measured 44Ca/40Ca in mantle pyroxenes and the relative proportions of major Ca-bearing minerals in the upper mantle, the estimated 44Ca/40Ca of the upper mantle is 1.1 per mil heavier relative to the NIST 915a, ~0.1 to 0.2 per mil higher than basalts. Ca isotopic variation in Hawaiian shield lavas: Large geochemical and isotopic variations have been observed in lavas forming the large tholeiitic shields of Hawaiian volcanoes, with lavas from the surface of the Koolau volcano (Makapuu-stage) defining one compositional and isotopic endmember. Specifically, among Hawaiian shield lavas, Makapuu-stage Koolau lavas have the lowest isotopic ratios of Nd, Hf and Pb , and the highest isotopic ratios of Sr and Os and olivine ?18O, and these observed isotopic characteristics are attributed to sampling recycled ancient oceanic crust (including sediments). Specifically, Makapuu-stage Koolau lavas have the highest Sr/Nb and La/Nb among Hawaiian lavas, which were interpreted as a result of sampling up to 3% recycled ancient carbonate-phosphate-rich sediments. Since ancient carbonates tend to have significantly lower 44Ca/40Ca than mantle value (up to 1 per mil), it is expected that Makapuu-stage Koolau lavas also have lower 44Ca/40Ca than other Hawiian shield lavas. Our preliminary Ca isotopic data confirmed this prediction. Specifically, Makapuu-stage Koolau lavas have slightly lower 44Ca/40Ca (average ?44/40Ca of 0.78±0.06, 2?, n=4) than other Hawaiian lavas, mantle clinopyroxenes and nephelinites from the Oslo rift (average ?44/40Ca of 0.97±0.12, 2?, n=17). The lighter 44Ca/40Ca observed in Makapuu-stage Koolau lavas can be explained as a result of adding 2-5% recycled ancient (2-3 Ga) carbonate into a typical mantle source. The amount of required ancient carbonate estimated based on Ca isotopes is comparable to those inferred using trace elements.

The structural variety of DNA-DPPC-divalent metal cation aggregates: SAXD and SANS study  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We examine the structure of aggregates formed due to DNA interaction with dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) in presence of Ca2+ and Zn2+ using small-angle synchrotron X-ray diffraction (SAXD) and neutron scattering (SANS). SAXD shows structural heterogeneity as a function of the cation concentration and temperature: At low cation concentration (˜1 mM), aggregates show two DPPC phases, one with a lateral segregation of DNA and cation, while higher cation concentration improves the DNA packing and the condensed lamellar phase is observed in DNA+DPPC+20mMion2+ aggregates. The SANS detected the dissolution of the condensed lamellar phase into unilamellar DPPC+Zn2+ vesicles due to gel ? liquid-crystal phase transition in DNA+DPPC+20mM Zn2+ aggregates with the short fragmented salmon sperm DNA.

Cumulative offset of the San Andreas fault in Central California: A seismic approach  

SciTech Connect

Scattered-wave imaging of upper crustal heterogeneity along nearly 500 km of the San Andreas fault in central California is used to estimate cumulative offset of basement rocks in the fault zone. Optimal cross-fault realignment of scattering patterns in achieved through removal of nearly 315 km of right-lateral slip. This value agrees with most previous estimates of early Miocene displacement, placing the initiation of movement on the San Andreas no earlier than ca, 23.1 Ma. Scattering along the fault correlates with segment boundaries established on the basis of historic and paleo seismicity, corroborating evidence from southern California that the upper crustal structures responsible for scattering are important in seismogenesis. 23 refs., 3 figs.

Cacao use and the San Lorenzo Olmec  

PubMed Central

Mesoamerican peoples had a long history of cacao use—spanning more than 34 centuries—as confirmed by previous identification of cacao residues on archaeological pottery from Paso de la Amada on the Pacific Coast and the Olmec site of El Manatí on the Gulf Coast. Until now, comparable evidence from San Lorenzo, the premier Olmec capital, was lacking. The present study of theobromine residues confirms the continuous presence and use of cacao products at San Lorenzo between 1800 and 1000 BCE, and documents assorted vessels forms used in its preparation and consumption. One elite context reveals cacao use as part of a mortuary ritual for sacrificial victims, an event that occurred during the height of San Lorenzo's power.

Tsunami Hazards in San Diego Bay, California  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We assess tsunami hazards in San Diego Bay, California, using recently available high resolution bathymetric/topographic data and newly identified offshore tsunami sources. Using MOST (Titov and Synolakis, 1998), we simulate locally, regionally, and distant-generated tsunamis. Local tsunami source models use more realistic fault and landslide data than previous efforts. Modeling results suggest that local sources are responsible for the largest waves within the San Diego Bay and Mission Bay. Because San Diego Bay is naturally protected by North Island and the Silver Strand, the wave heights predicted are consistently smaller inside the harbor than outside. However, historical accounts and our predicted currents do imply that San Diego Bay may be vulnerable to strong tsunami induced currents. More specifically, large currents are expected inside the harbor for various distant and local tsunami sources with predicted flow velocities exceeding 100cm/sec (Borrero, et al, 1996). Such currents have been damaging to harbor facilities, such as wharves and piers, and may cause boats to break from moorings and ram into adjacent harbor structures as observed in recent historic tsunamis. We note that the first generation of inundation maps in use in San Diego County by emergency management is based on much larger "worst case but realistic scenarios" (Synolakis et al, 2002), which reflected the understanding of offshore hazards pervasive ten years ago. Large inundation and flow depths were not observed in any of our simulations with a possible exception in Mission Bay. -Borrero, J.C., M. Ortiz, V. Titov, and C.E. Synolakis.

Onion and garlic dehydration in the San Emidio Desert, Nevada  

SciTech Connect

Integrated Ingredients dedicated their new onion and garlic processing plant on May 25th. {open_quotes}Grunion{close_quotes} as the new community of 72 employees has been labeled, is located just south of Empire and Gerlach and about 100 miles north of Reno, Nevada. The plant, run by Integrated Ingredients (based in Alameda, CA), is a division of Burns Philp Food, Inc., which owns brands such as Spice Islands, Durkee-French and Fleischmann`s. This plant gives the company the ability to produce its own products for industrial and consumer markets instead of purchasing them. The plant was located in the San Emidio Desert at the edge of the vast Black Rock Desert and the Great Basin to take advantage of the high temperature geothermal resource (approximately 270{degrees}F). The resource is also used by the OESI/AMOR II 3.6 MW binary plant about a mile south of the dehydration plant and a gold heap leaching operation just to the north of the plant (Wind Mt. mine operated by AMAX). In addition to the geothermal energy, the high desert is an ideal location for onion and garlic processing because the cold winters kill damaging microbes. Dry winters and summers also help.

SANS Measurement of Hydrides in Uranium  

SciTech Connect

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

The San Joaquin Valley Westside Perspective  

SciTech Connect

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

Investigating Sources and Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds in California's San Joaquin Valley  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are regulated both as primary air pollutants and as precursors to the formation of secondary organic aerosol and tropospheric ozone. The San Joaquin Valley, a non-attainment area for ozone and PM2.5, contains a variety of point, area, and mobile VOC sources that contribute to both primary and secondary pollution. Using ambient measurements of over 100 different VOCs and Intermediate Volatility Organic Compounds (IVOCs) made at multiple field sites, we assess the magnitude and importance of various VOC sources in the San Joaquin Valley. Hourly measurements were made during the spring and summer of 2010 via in-situ gas chromatography in Bakersfield, CA as part of the CalNex experiment and also at a rural site located 100 km north of Bakersfield. Additionally, in-situ measurements of fresh motor vehicle exhaust were made in Oakland's Caldecott tunnel during the summer of 2010. Measurements include a broad array of anthropogenic and biogenic VOCs ranging in size from 1 to 17 carbon atoms, including many compounds with functional groups or substituents (e.g. aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, halogens, sulfur, & nitrogen). Using statistical methods of source apportionment, covariance, source receptor modeling, and air parcel back trajectories, we assess the impact of various sources on observed VOC concentrations at our field sites in the San Joaquin Valley. Prevalent sources include gasoline and diesel-vehicle exhaust, petroleum extraction/refining, biogenic emissions from agricultural crops and natural vegetation, and emissions from dairy operations and animal husbandry. We use measurements of fresh motor vehicle emissions from the Caldecott tunnel to constrain apportionment of gasoline and diesel-related VOCs and IVOCs in the San Joaquin Valley. Initial results from Bakersfield show substantial influence from local anthropogenic VOC sources, but there is evidence for transport of emissions from both anthropogenic and biogenic sources elsewhere in the region. For example, large biogenic sources appear to be regional rather than local since concentrations of isoprene peak in the late afternoon/evening suggesting transport from northern parts of the valley. We observed elevated concentrations of numerous alcohols and carbonyls in the San Joaquin Valley; for example mixing ratios of ethanol and acetone at the Bakersfield supersite had inner quartile ranges of 1.2-9.4 ppbv and 0.58-1.6 ppbv, with daytime averages near 2 and 1 ppbv, respectively. Additionally, we assess the sources and emissions of the IVOCs observed in the San Joaquin Valley, which include polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, large biogenic compounds, and high molecular weight alkanes and aromatics.

Performance of San Fernando dams during 1994 Northridge earthquake  

SciTech Connect

The 1994 Northridge and 1971 San Fernando Earthquakes subjected the Lower and Upper San Fernando Dams of the Van Norman Complex in the San Fernando Valley, Calif., to strong near-source ground motions. In 1994, these earth dams, which were out of service and retained only a few meters of water, extensively cracked and settled due to the liquefaction of their hydraulic fill. The Lower San Fernando Dam moved over 15 cm upstream as the hydraulic fill liquefied beneath its upstream slope. The Upper San Fernando Dam moved even more and deformed in a complicated three-dimensional pattern. The responses of the Lower and Upper San Fernando Dams during the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, although less significant than in 1971, provide the geotechnical engineering community with two useful case histories.

Arsenic concentrations were determined in fine-grained, oxidized, surface sediments and in two benthic bivalves, Corbicula sp. and Macoma balthica, within San Francisco Bay, the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta, and selected rivers not influenced by urban or industrial activity. Arsenic concentrations in all samples were characteristic of values reported for uncontaminated estuaries. Small temporal fluctuations and low arsenic concentrations in bivalves and sediments suggest that most inputs of arsenic are likely to be minor and arsenic contamination is not widespread in the Bay.

Structure and Composition of the San Andreas Fault at Seismogenic Depths: Recent Results from the SAFOD Experiment  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) was drilled into the San Andreas Fault Zone to study the physics of earthquake nucleation and rupture and determine the composition, physical properties, and mechanical behavior of an active, plate-bounding fault at seismogenic depths. SAFOD is located 10 km NW of Parkfield, CA, and penetrates a section of the fault that is moving through a combination of repeating microearthquakes and fault creep. During Phases 1 and 2 in the summers of 2004 and 2005, SAFOD was drilled vertically to a depth of 1.5 km and then deviated to penetrate the active San Andreas Fault Zone at a vertical depth of about 2.7 km. During Phase 3 in the summer of 2007, cores were acquired from holes branching off the main SAFOD borehole to directly sample fault and country rocks at depth. Geophysical logs and cuttings analyses conducted during Phases 1 and 2 define the San Andreas Fault Zone to be relatively broad (~250 m), containing several discrete, highly localized zones only 2-3 m wide that exhibit very low P- and S-wave velocities and low resistivity. Two of these zones have progressively deformed the cemented casing at measured depths of 3194 m and 3301 m, indicating that they are actively creeping shear zones. These active shear zones were targeted for coring during Phase 3. The 3194 m casing deformation zone lies ~100 m above a cluster of repeating M2 earthquakes that form the southwestern boundary of the creeping and microseismically active San Andreas Fault Zone. Casing deformation is most pronounced across the 3301 m zone; hence this zone is believed to accommodate most of the current creep deformation across the San Andreas Fault at this location. During Phase 3 we have obtained core from just outside the geologically defined San Andreas Fault Zone, at the boundary between the Salinian and Great Valley/Franciscan terranes, and from the active deformation zones at 3194 and 3301 m. The cores obtained from these deformation zones exhibit a variety of features indicating pronounced strain localization and probably marked weakening. These include highly sheared and foliated shales and siltstones, cataclasites, veined serpentinite and chert bodies, and compacted, cohesionless serpentine-bearing fault gouge, all juxtaposed in shear zones only a few meters wide. The occurrence of serpentinite is particularly significant, because serpentine and related minerals are widely regarded to be important in controlling frictional strength and the stability of sliding. The Phase 3 core samples will be extensively tested in the laboratory to study the composition, deformation mechanisms, physical properties and rheological behavior of fault rocks from the active traces of the San Andreas Fault at realistic in-situ conditions.

Ruptures of the San Andreas fault system in San Gorgonio Pass  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Fault behavior models for the San Andreas fault system in San Gorgonio Pass hinge upon contrasting interpretations of the structural complexity and diffuse seismicity in the Pass region. One model maintains that the fault system can rupture through the Pass in ~ M 7.8 earthquakes that extend from the Salton Sea to the Mojave Desert. Another model argues that the structural complexity here arrests San Andreas ruptures as they approach from either side of the Pass and limits their size to ~ M 7.5. One way to test these models is to examine the paleoseismic record of active faults in the Pass. Work at the Burro Flats site, located where the San Bernardino strand feeds into San Gorgonio Pass from the north, reveals evidence for at least nine earthquakes in the last 2000 yrs. The average earthquake recurrence is about 200 yrs with the maximum and minimum intervals between earthquakes equal to about 550 and 80 yrs, respectively. The average recurrence is considered to be a maximum value because a hiatus in sedimentation during the Early Middle Ages may ‘hide’ one or more event during this time period. The maximum recurrence interval of 550 yrs is likely an overestimate owing to the large errors in the timing of one event ~1300 yrs ago. In general, the Burro Flats event record and average recurrence is very similar to those at sites in the San Bernardino and Coachella Valley regions. The most recent rupture at Burro Flats cuts strata that contain European-introduced pollen and is interpreted to record the southeastern extent of the 1812 Wrightwood earthquake, a possible example of a ‘Pass-as-a-barrier’, moderate-sized event. The timing of pre-1812 events at Burro Flats correlate with the timing of San Andreas events in the San Bernardino and Coachella Valley regions, possible examples of through going, larger-sized earthquakes. Work at the Cabezon site, located on a thrust segment of the San Gorgonio Pass fault zone, shows evidence for two ruptures since ~ AD 1300. Age data permit correlating the two events at Cabezon with the second and third events at Burro Flats, assuming that the 1812 earthquake died out between the Burro Flats and Cabezon sites. Another test of the likelihood of a through going rupture is the analysis of fault steps in the Pass region. Mapping of the active faults here shows that fault steps are smaller than the 3-4 km limit that has halted historic ruptures worldwide, and within the size range where ruptures cease only ~40 per cent of the time. Though the 1812 earthquake appears to have stopped within the Pass, active fault maps in combination with paleoseismic data cannot preclude that very large, through going San Andreas earthquakes happen in San Gorgonio Pass.

Various data, representing diverse periods of time (5 Ma to present), constrain the displacement histories of the San Jacinto and southernmost San Andreas fault zones in southern California. Apparent discrepancies between long- and short-term averaged displacement rates can be reconciled if the southernmost San Andreas displacement rate dropped rapidly from its former rate of 35~mm\\/yr to near zero with the

Regional and interspecific variation in Sr, Ca, and Sr/Ca ratios in avian eggshells from the USA.  

PubMed

To examine regional variation in strontium (Sr), which at high concentrations may reduce eggshell quality, increase egg breakage and reproductive failure, we analyzed Sr, and calcium (Ca) concentrations and Sr/Ca ratios in eggshells from 20 avian species from California, Texas, Idaho, Kansas, and Michigan. In addition, we included data previously reported from Arizona to expand the regional comparisons and to better establish patterns of Sr, and Sr/Ca ratios in bird species across the United States. We found Sr concentrations varied significantly among regions, among species, and among foraging guilds; this variability is strongly influenced by the Sr/Ca ratios in surface water from locations close to the region where the eggshells were collected. Sr concentrations and Sr/Ca ratios were significantly higher in bird eggshells from the Volta wildlife region in the San Joaquin Valley, California and in various locales from Arizona. Sr concentrations and Sr/Ca ratios in bird eggshells from other locations in the USA were lower than those detected in these two regions. Among foraging guilds, invertivores had the highest Sr concentrations and Sr/Ca ratios and carnivores had the lowest. In general, the Sr/Ca ratio increased strongly with increasing Sr concentrations (R(2) = 0.99, P < 0.0001). There was a significant correlation (R(2) = 0.58, P < 0.0001) between Sr/Ca ratios in water and the average Sr/Ca ratios in eggshells suggesting that these values could be determined from Sr/Ca ratios in water. Eggshell thickness was poorly correlated with Sr (R(2) = 0.03) but had a significant and positive correlation with Ca and was more properly correlated by a quadratic equation (R(2) = 0.50, Thickness = 2.13 - 0.02Ca - 3.07 * 10(-5)Ca(2)). Our study provides further evidence that Sr accumulates significantly in the avian eggshell, in some regions at concentrations which could be of concern for potential negative effects on reproduction. We suggest that when assessing the effects of metals on avian reproduction in regions with high Sr deposits in rock and soil, Sr concentrations in the eggshell also should be measured to evaluate additional effects on thickness and reproduction.

Source rock maturation, San Juan sag  

SciTech Connect

Kinetic modeling for thermal histories was simulated for seven wells in the San Juan sag honoring measured geochemical data. Wells in the area of Del Norte field (Sec. 9, T40N, R5E), where minor production has been established from an igneous sill reservoir, show that the Mancos Shale source rocks are in the mature oil generation window as a combined result of high regional heat flow and burial by approximately 2,700 m of Oligocene volcanic rocks. Maturation was relatively recent for this area and insignificant during Laramide subsidence. In the vicinity of Gramps field (Sec. 24, T33N, R2E) on the southwest flank of the San Juan sag, these same source rocks are exposed due to erosion of the volcanic cover but appear to have undergone a similar maturation history. At the north and south margins of the sag, two wells (Champlin 34A-13, Sec. 13, T35N, R4.5E; and Champlin 24A-1, Sec. 1, T44N, R5E) were analyzed and revealed that although the regional heat flow was probably similar to other wells, the depth of burial was insufficient to cause maturation (except where intruded by thick igneous sills that caused localized maturation). The Meridian Oil 23-17 South Fork well (Sec. 17, T39N, R4E) was drilled in a deeper part of the San Juan sag, and source rocks were intruded by numerous igneous sills creating a complex maturation history that includes overmature rocks in the lowermost Mancos Shale, possible CO{sub 2} generation from the calcareous Niobrara Member of the Mancos Shale, and mature source rocks in the upper Mancos Shale.

Landslide oil field, San Joaquin Valley, California  

SciTech Connect

The Landslide field, located at the southern margin of the San Joaquin basin, was discovered in 1985 by a partnership headed by Channel Exploration Company, on a farm out from Tenneco Oil Company. Initial production from the Tenneco San Emidio 63X-30 was 2064 BOPD, making landslide one of the largest onshore discoveries in California during the past decade. Current production is 7100 BOPD from a sandstone reservoir at 12,500 ft. Fifteen wells have been drilled in the field, six of which are water injectors. Production from the Landslide field occurs from a series of upper Miocene Stevens turbidite sandstones that lie obliquely across an east-plunging structural nose. These turbidite sandstones were deposited as channel-fill sequences within a narrowly bounded levied channel complex. Both the Landslide field and the larger Yowlumne field, located 3 mi to the northwest, comprise a single channel-fan depositional system that developed in the restricted deep-water portion of the San Joaquin basin. Information from the open-hole logs, three-dimensional surveys, vertical seismic profiles, repeat formation tester data, cores, and pressure buildup tests allowed continuous drilling from the initial discovery to the final waterflood injector, without a single dry hole. In addition, the successful application of three-dimensional seismic data in the Landslide development program has helped correctly image channel-fan anomalies in the southern Maricopa basin, where data quality and severe velocity problems have hampered previous efforts. New exploration targets are currently being evaluated on the acreage surrounding the Landslide discovery and should lead to an interesting new round of drilling activity in the Maricopa basin.

SANS Study of Protein Adsorption on Nanoparticles  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Adsorption of lysozyme protein on silica nanoparticle has been studied using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) at pH 7. The measurements were carried out on fixed concentration (1 wt %) of nanoparticles and varying concentration of protein in the range 0 to 2 wt%. It has been found that the protein is adsorbed on the nanoparticle surface at very low protein concentrations whereas strong electrostatic interaction of lysozyme with silica nanoparticles at higher protein concentrations leads to the aggregation of nanoparticles. The adsorption is found to be increased with increase in the particle size and the aggregation is determined to be fractal structure.
