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

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

    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.

    2007-12-01

    The movement of sand by ocean currents is an invisible but critically important phenomenon to coastal communities and sea-vessel-dependent economies such as in San Luis Obispo Bay. Over time, sand (or sediment) can cause beaches to erode or rebuild and harbors to "silt up." Dredging harbors is an obvious control mechanism, but the process is messy and expensive. Thus, such "coastal management" decisions should be well informed. Unfortunately, the effect of ocean currents on sand and sediment levels on the ocean floor is poorly understood in part because it is hard to observe: it occurs at the bottom of the ocean. But questions remain: What are the sand movement dynamics at the bottom of San Luis Obispo Bay? Is the bay filling in? Emptying out? What effects do persistent wind and wave patterns have on the ocean bottom? What about large storms? In order to answer these questions, we have installed a bathymetric Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR) system on the Cal Poly Center for Costal Marine Sciences Pier in Port San Luis Obispo, California. Using a 1 Watt ocean floor (benthic boundary layer or BBL). The photon detector is attached to a high resolution, multiple-stop timer, with 15 picoseconds of event-to-event resolution. This yields an approximate 1 cm resolution of LIDAR ranging and hence sediment transport dynamics. In this poster, we will present preliminary results of our work including evidence of surface- and BBL-scattered photons.

    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.

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

    2007-01-01

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

    Pulverized fault zone rocks have been observed in the damage structure of several large bimaterial faults. They appear to have been shattered in situ, are associated with significant grain size reduction, and may be produced in response to dynamic reduction of normal stress during earthquake ruptures. Here we present results of a detailed microstructural analysis of pulverized granitoids from samples of ~40 m deep borehole near the San Andreas Fault (Wechsler et al., 2011). The study makes extensive use of optical and electron microscopy (SEM and TEM) and associated techniques. The host rock is a coarse-grained biotite granite slightly metasomatised collected about 1 km from the San Andreas fault. The pulverized rocks have fine to very fine grain sizes, heterogeneously distributed in thin-sections, with some grains as small as <5 ?m. Nevertheless the mineralogical composition is essentially the same as the host granodiorite. All minerals, regardless of their composition, are fractured, and in most cases do not show evidence of rotation/translation. Shattered grains are highly angular and still preserve the high-temperature microstructures of the undeformed granodiorite, such as subgrains in quartz and feldspars. While quartz crystals have more anhedral shapes with few recognizable faces, plagioclase and K-feldspar fragments are more euhedral, suggesting that the pulverization process in feldspars is initiated and facilitated along their mechanical anisotropies. In some samples feldspar are mildly sericitized. Biotite grains might show intense kink-band development, typical of low-temperature deformation, and might be partially transformed to chlorite. When present, calcite grains have a very high twin density, suggesting relatively high stress conditions for their development. Further results (still in acquisition process) at ?m-to-nm scale will be presented at the conference.

    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.

    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.

    We performed campaign GPS measurements of near-field interseismic deformation in the Anza section of the San Jacinto fault zone. Our survey occupied 27 benchmarks within 4 km of the fault trace, including a 400-m long alignment array established across the fault in 1990 by SDSU investigators. To constrain the fault slip rate and locking depth, we used SCEC CMM4 velocities in addition to our near field campaign GPS measurements. We inverted GPS velocities using a non-linear Monte-Carlo algorithm. The best-fitting slip rate and fault locking depths are 14 ± 2 mm/yr and 17 ± 3 km, respectively. We also investigated the occurrence of shallow creep on the fault by comparing GPS positions of the alignment array monuments to the total station measurements conducted in the early 1990's. This comparison yields a maximum rate of rotation of .002 degrees per year within the array (see Figure). We combined these observations with simple models of shallow creep to place an upper bound on the amount of surface creep. The data appear to rule out shallow creep at a rate greater than 0.5 mm/yr. This upper bound is well below predictions of models of interseismic deformation on rate-and-state faults assuming a two to three kilometer deep velocity-strengthening layer.

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

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

    2013-01-01

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

  14. Paleoseismology and Tectonic Geomorphology: Results From the Parkfield, CA Segment of the San Andreas Fault

    The Parkfield segment of the San Andreas Fault (SAF) is the transition zone between the creep-dominated segment of the SAF to the northwest and the locked segment to the southeast. Geodetic studies indicate ~10 mm/year of the SAF 35 mm/year slip-rate is accommodated by creep at shallow depths of the SAF near Carr Hill, suggesting the remaining slip may occur in moderate to large earthquakes. Foreshock intensities of the 1857 M7.8 Fort Tejon earthquake were similar to 20th century Parkfield events, suggesting that the 1857 event may have nucleated in the Parkfield area. Paleoseismic investigations near Parkfield have achieved limited success in exposing useful fault zone stratigraphy. Our goals were to investigate the style and timing of late Pleistocene and Holocene faulting along this segment of the SAF. Specifically, did the 1857 or similar large prehistoric earthquakes rupture through the Parkfield segment? In addition, is it possible to distinguish deformation caused by these large magnitude earthquakes from deformation associated with the moderate 1966-style earthquakes and aseismic creep? Geomorphic mapping from Middle Mountain to Carr Hill revealed numerous tectonic landforms that define the fault trace and indicated possible excavation sites, including the sites used for this study. Two fault-perpendicular excavations were cut in a late Pleistocene fluvial terrace of Little Cholame Creek just north-northeast of Carr Hill. A thirty-meter excavation across an elongate sag pond, containing an apparently right-laterally offset fluvial channel and several small springs, revealed four fault zones. The outer fault zones were parallel with the regional trend of the SAF (313°), while the inner fault zones trended obliquely at ~350°. The three easternmost fault zones show apparent dip-slip deformation including truncation and down warping of sag and terrace deposits. The westernmost fault zone was characterized by upward splaying sub-vertical clay shear bands, which juxtaposed the youngest sag deposits against heavily bioturbated units. The orientation and styles of deformation are consistent with local extension due to a small right step in the SAF trace. Apparently, the two central, obliquely oriented, fault zones transfer slip across the step. A second ~35 m excavation across a ~2m pressure ridge, just southeast of the sag excavation, revealed two fault zones. The primary fault zone was characterized by upward splaying clay shear bands, most of which terminated within an undifferentiated organic unit associated with a spring line midway up the scarp. Higher on the scarp a zone of dip-slip faulting, characterized by apparent normal offset and stratigraphically lower terminations, is older than the primary fault zone. Strong indicators of coseismic ground rupture such as filled fissures were not observed. However, the lack of such features does not preclude the possibility of large earthquakes in Parkfield. Several upward terminating fault strands provide possible evidence for seismic events. It is likely that much of the deformation in these exposures (the down-warped sands in particular) is due to aseismic creep. Forthcoming radiocarbon ages will provide information about deformation rates and the development of the fault related structures exposed here.

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

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

    2014-01-01

    The solubility controls on vanadium (V) in groundwater were studied due to concerns over possible harmful health effects of ingesting V in drinking water. Vanadium concentrations in the northeastern San Joaquin Valley ranged from 25 ?g/L) and lowest in samples collected from anoxic groundwater (70% 2VO4?. Adsorption/desorption reactions with mineral surfaces and associated oxide coatings were indicated as the primary solubility control of V5+ oxyanions in groundwater. Environmental data showed that V concentrations in oxic groundwater generally increased with increasing groundwater pH. However, data from adsorption isotherm experiments indicated that small variations in pH (7.4–8.2) were not likely as an important a factor as the inherent adsorption capacity of oxide assemblages coating the surface of mineral grains. In suboxic groundwater, accurate SM modeling was difficult since Eh measurements of source water were not measured in this study. Vanadium concentrations in suboxic groundwater decreased with increasing pH indicating that V may exist as an oxycationic species [e.g. V(OH)3+]. Vanadium may complex with dissolved inorganic and organic ligands under suboxic conditions, which could alter the adsorption behavior of V in groundwater. Speciation modeling did not predict the existence of V-inorganic ligand complexes and organic ligands were not collected as part of this study. More work is needed to determine processes governing V solubility under suboxic groundwater conditions. Under anoxic groundwater conditions, SM predicts that aqueous V exists as the uncharged V(OH)3 molecule. However, exceedingly low V concentrations show that V is sparingly soluble in anoxic conditions. Results indicated that V may be precipitating as V3+- or mixed V3+/Fe3+-oxides in anoxic groundwater, which is consistent with results of a previous study. The fact that V appears insoluble in anoxic (Fe reducing) redox conditions indicates that the behavior of V is different than arsenic (As) in aquifer systems where the reductive dissolution of Fe-oxides with As adsorbed to the surface is a well-documented mechanism for increasing As concentrations in groundwater. This hypothesis is supported by the relation of V to As concentrations in oxic versus anoxic redox conditions. Sequential extraction procedures (SEP) applied to aquifer material showed that the greatest amount of V was recovered by the nitric acid (HNO3) extract (37–71%), followed by the oxalate-ascorbic acid extract (19–60%) and the oxalate extract (3–14%). These results indicate that V was not associated with the solid phase as an easily exchangeable fraction. Although the total amount of V recovered was greatest for the HNO3 extract that targets V adsorbed to sorption sites of crystalline Al, Fe and Mn oxides, the greatest V saturation of sorption sites appeared to occur on the amorphous and poorly crystalline oxide solid phases targeted by the oxalate and oxalate-ascorbic acid extracts respectively. Adsorption isotherm experiments showed no correlation between V sorption and any of the fractions identified by the SEP. This lack of correlation indicates the application of an SEP alone is not adequate to estimate the sorption characteristics of V in an aquifer system.

  16. Groundwater Quality in the North San Francisco Bay Groundwater Basins, CA

    2010-12-01

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

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

  1. Mechanical insights into tectonic reorganization of the southern San Andreas fault system at ca. 1.1-1.5 Ma

    Reorganization of active fault systems may result from changes in relative plate motion and evolving fault geometries. Between ~1.5 and 1.1 Ma the southern San Andreas fault system underwent a major reorganization that included initiation of the San Jacinto fault zone, termination of slip on the extensional West Salton detachment fault, and reorganization of structures in the Mecca Hills northeast of the San Andreas fault during a local change from transtension to transpression conditions with no known change in Pacific-North America relative plate motion. The active trace of the southern San Andreas fault itself also evolved during this time, with shifts in activity from the Mission Creek to Mill Creek to the present-day active fault geometry of the San Bernardino, Garnet Hill, and Banning strands of the San Andreas fault. Although there is a rich geologic record of these changes, the mechanisms that controlled abandonment of active faults, initiation of new strands, and shifting loci of uplift are poorly understood. We use three-dimensional mechanical Boundary Element Method models to investigate this major tectonic reorganization at ~1.1-1.5 Ma. Previous mechanical modeling studies have examined the evolution of the southern San Andreas fault geometry in the San Gorgonio Pass using a series of snapshot models of the succession of active fault geometries. We use the same approach to explore the role of fault interaction and tectonic loading in abandonment of the West Salton detachment fault and initiation of the San Jacinto fault. The snapshots include: (1) regional transtension with an active West Salton detachment fault and active Mission Creek strand of the San Andreas fault; (2) cessation of local extension in combination with initiation of the San Jacinto fault in which we explore both north-to-south propagation and simultaneous growth; (3) shift of activity to the Mill Creek strand of the San Andreas fault; and (4) shift of activity to the present-day configuration of faults. We assess the mechanical viability of our snapshot series of models by comparison with patterns of uplift and subsidence inferred from the stratigraphic record in the Salton Trough and Mecca Hills. Model results of present-day fault configuration are also compared with vertical axis rotation data from paleomagnetism studies in the Mecca Hills, Borrego Badlands, and San Timoteo Badlands (see Housen et al., this session). We examine incipient faulting using maps of the strain energy density, which identifies regions of high off-fault strain. Our model results explore the importance of interaction among faults and resulting shifts in stress and strain distributions in the reorganization of the southern San Andreas system at ~1.1-1.5 Ma.

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

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

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

    We report high-resolution (R ~ 40,000) spectra taken from Mt. Hamilton over the city of San Jose with the Hamilton Echelle Spectrometer on the Shane 3-m telescope. Apart from the strong atomic oxygen and molecular OH nightglow emissions, we find a rich array of atomic lines originating from city lighting. As expected, the strongest lines are from sodium and mercury,

  16. Sedimentologic evidence for structural and topographic evolution following the onset of strike slip, E San Francisco Bay area, CA

    Mid- to Upper Miocene continental (Orinda and Mulholland Fms.) and shallow marine (Neroly Fm.) strata in the Upper San Leandro Reservoir watershed (SLR) area east of San Francisco Bay preserve important information on structural and landscape evolution during the early phases of strike slip along the Pacific-North American plate boundary. The SLR area lies between the Hayward and Calaveras Faults, major strands of the San Andreas Fault system, and is bisected by the NW-striking Cull Creek Fault (CCF). Geologic mapping delineates five completely intercalated lithofacies in the Mulholland Fm. at SLR. The conglomerate-dominated, sandstone-dominated, and interbedded conglomerate, sandstone, and siltstone facies represent fluvial channel and floodplain deposits; the sandstone + mudstone facies represent lacustrine-deltaic and shallow lacustrine deposits; the shale facies records open lacustrine deposition. Sparse unidirectional paleocurrent indicators show southerly and easterly transport west of the CCF and both westerly and easterly transport east of the CCF. Conglomerate-rich and sand-rich facies tracts are juxtaposed along the CCF. Clast assemblages in Mulholland conglomerates include abundant chart, graywacke, blueschist, and vein quartz, suggesting derivation from a Franciscan-dominated source terrane. Clast assemblages in the gradationally underlying and interfingering Neroly Fm. suggest that it shared the same source terrane; this is atypical for the primarily andesitic (Sierra-derived) Neroly. Fluvial deposits are volumetrically dominant in the Mulholland Fm. at SLR; open-lacustrine shales occur in stratigraphically isolated lenses ranging from > 1 km to < 100 m along strike. This suggests numerous small lakes on a broad drainage plain rather than the single large lake envisioned by previous workers.

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

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

    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.

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

  5. Partitioning Nitrification Between Specific Archaeal and Bacterial Clades in a Large, Nitrogen-Rich Estuary (San Francisco Bay, CA)

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

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

  7. Identifying and locating tectonic tremor beneath the San Andreas Fault near Parkfield, CA, with the PASO array

    Tectonic tremor is a weak but persistent shaking of the Earth that was first discovered in subduction zones and later found beneath the San Andreas Fault (SAF). Tremor events represent spasmodic slip on the deep extension of the SAF, occurring at a depth of about 20-25 kilometers. Tremor occurs deeper than the nearby regular earthquakes, which can be found at maximum depths of 12-15 kilometers. Tremor is characterized by bursts of low frequency and/or very low frequency earthquakes (LFE/VLF) with dominant energy in the 1-10 Hz range. Tremor tells us about fault slip at depth in both space and time by illuminating the fault down to about the base of the crust. In the pursuit of deriving information about deep fault behavior and crustal structure, we are analyzing continuous data from the previously untapped Parkfield Area Seismic Observatory (PASO) temporary array, operated in 2000-2002 and 2004-2006. We started the identification process by correlating templates of known events from a nearby station array based on an existing catalog of tremor events. Using the dense PASO array and various correlation methods, including autocorrelation (Brown et. al. 2008), a scanning algorithm (Rowe, 2005), and cross correlation of template events (Shelly et al., 2007), we will refine the locations of these known events and seek to identify undiscovered clusters of LFEs and tremor. After generating an updated catalog initially for the month of September 2002, we will use S-wave arrivals from the 59 stations comprising the PASO array to provide strong constraints on the locations of identified events.

    Purpose To examine pathways between individual, social, and environmental factors associated with leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) among Mexican-American adults. Design Cross-sectional design using random digit dialing to administer a structured telephone interview. Setting Mexican-American adults living in a U.S./Mexican border community in San Diego, CA (N=672). Measures Data were collected on LTPA, demographic characteristics, acculturation, and other psychosocial and environmental factors associated with LTPA. Analysis Structural equation modeling to test an a priori model of LTPA. Results Participants were mostly female (71%) with a mean age of 39 years (SD = 13). Only 32% of participants met PA guidelines in their leisure time, with men (39%) meeting the guidelines more than women (29%). Using structural equation modeling, neighborhood factors, both social and environmental, showed indirect relationships with meeting PA guidelines through community resource factors. Significant covariates included marital status and age. Conclusion Individual, social and environmental factors were associated with LTPA in this sample of Mexican-American adults. These findings can inform intervention studies that aim to increase LTPA in this population. PMID:22548422

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

    Anthropogenic activities, including climate change, will influence connections between the hydrologic and carbon cycles as well as the exchange of materials between terrestrial and aquatic systems. Altered precipitation will influence the delivery of water, suspended sediment and carbon, while construction of dams and reservoirs and changes in land use alter the flow paths and transport of sediment and associated materials to downstream ecosystems. We used the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta CA (Delta, hereafter) as a model system for understanding how human activities influenced the delivery and composition of organic carbon (OC) over the past 50-60 years. Sediment cores from the Delta were used to examine human impacts on carbon sources, amounts, and ages. Sediment and carbon accumulation rates were four to eight-fold higher pre-1972 relative to post-1972, coincident with completion of several large reservoirs and increased agriculture and urbanization in the Delta watershed. Several classes of biomarkers demonstrate that terrigenous OC has decreased since the 1940s. Radiocarbon isotopes of TOC and fatty acids in surface sediments indicate that much of the OC is highly reworked (900-1400 years BP) and vascular plant biomarkers have the oldest ages suggesting erosion of soils. Together, these data suggest that human activities have altered the amount, sources, and ages of carbon accumulating in the Delta. Projected increases in aridity and changes in the timing and amounts of freshwater delivery associated with anthropogenic climate change are likely to exacerbate these modifications to the delivery of carbon and sediment.

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

    2007-12-01

    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.

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

  1. A Sequential Chemical Extraction and Spectroscopic Assessment of the Potential Bioavailability of Mercury Released From the Inoperative New Idria Mercury Mine, San Benito Co., CA

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The inoperative New Idria mercury mine in San Benito Co., CA, is a potential point source of Hg to the Central Valley of California. To determine the phases and the potential bioavailability of Hg present in stream bed deposits downstream of the mine, sequential chemical extractions (SCEs) targeting Hg-bearing phases and synchrotron-based spectroscopic and imaging techniques were used on sediment samples taken from the acid mine drainage (AMD) system, Hg sorbed in the laboratory to ferrihydrite (synthetic 2-line and natural), and Hg associated with diatom-rich samples. In all field samples examined, both the wet and dry seasons, removal of > 97% of the Hg required 1M KOH or harsher chemical treatments. X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) showed that HgS was the dominant inorganic Hg phase present, with no detectable Hg associated with the ferrihydrite. Uptake and subsequent SCE analysis of Hg to both synthetic and natural ferrihydrite showed that 1M MgCl2 removed ? 90% of the total Hg, suggesting that Hg does not sorb strongly to ferrihydrite. This finding is surprising, because in most settings ferrihydrite is considered to be a strong adsorbent of heavy metals. Due to the lack of Hg sorption to ferrihydrite in field samples, another pool for the non-HgS/HgSe fraction in sediments is needed. SEM analysis of the downstream samples showed that regardless of pH, freshwater diatoms were present. To determine if diatoms were the sink for dissolved Hg in this system, SCE analysis on commercially available and diatom-rich field samples from the New Idria site and Harley Gulch (Lake County, CA) were completed. The vast majority of Hg in diatom-rich samples was removed by 1M KOH, which corresponds to the non-HgS/HgSe fraction of the New Idria field samples. Analysis for carbon and nitrogen in the diatom-rich samples showed no detectable nitrogen, indicating little to no organic material was left in the samples. We therefore infer that Hg in the diatoms is contained in the silica tests. The possibility of Hg being incorporated in the silica tests of diatoms is surprising, but one of the few known Hg-silicates (Edgarbailyite) was first discovered in the New Idria forming under ambient conditions, thus, a Hg-silicate species is possible. The stability of Hg contained in diatoms is important because it represents a new sink for dissolved Hg in an impacted system that was previously unknown. Freshwater diatoms present in the New Idria drainage system were found to contain significant quantities (30-60%) of Hg in the non-HgS SCE fractions, similar to the New Idria sediments, and are thought to be the major association of Hg in this system. SCE analyses of Hg(II) sorbed to synthetic 2-line and natural ferrihydrite in the laboratory showed that Hg(II) does not bind strongly to either material. The adsorption/incorporation of Hg(II) with the silica tests of diatoms is an important discovery and has major implications for passive remediation strategies for Hg in natural systems. Because the vast majority of Hg contained in sediments downstream of the New Idria site require 1M KOH or harsher chemical treatment for removal, the Hg released from New Idria can be considered to be environmentally stable.

    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.

    Larson in 1991 put forward a hypothesis on the extremely high development of diamond-bearing kimberlites in the Mid-Cretaceous period. In Israel, the Cretaceous magmatic activity is well known in the central Negev. The first microdiamond in Israel was found in northern Negev and the authors associated its origin with an extraterrestrial event. An integrated analysis of several geological and geophysical factors enables us to select for detailed investigations the area of Makhtesh Ramon canyon situated near the town of Mizpe-Ramon (nothern Negev). Data of aero- and land magnetic surveys as well as self-potential method were analyzed using modern interpreting methods. Application of geochemical/geophysical ion-selective analysis testifies to presence of kimberlite-like bodies located at a small depth. Performed mineralogical analyses of subsurface geological associations allowed to identifying a variety of minerals of diamondiferous association: chrome-diopside, orange garnet, bright-crimson pyrope, picroilmenite, black spinel, olivine, anatase, tourmaline, aggregates of perovskite, yttrium phosphate, moissanite and corundum. The recent geochemical analyses signify to discovering of quasi-kimberlite rock -- meimechite, traces of REE and some platinum group elements also testify presence of diamondiferous associations. Finally, five diamonds (with a size exceeding 1 mm) and more than 400 microdiamonds (< 1 mm) have been discovered in this area. Thus, we can unambiguously concluding that the Makhtesh Ramon area contains typical products of kimberlite pipe destruction.

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

    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.

    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.

    Deadwood tree stems scattered above treeline on tephra-covered slopes of Whitewing Mtn (3051 m) and San Joaquin Ridge (3122 m) show evidence of being killed in an eruption from adjacent Glass Creek Vent, Inyo Craters. Using tree-ring methods, we dated deadwood to AD 815-1350 and infer from death dates that the eruption occurred in late summer AD 1350. Based on wood anatomy, we identified deadwood species as Pinus albicaulis, P. monticola, P. lambertiana, P. contorta, P. jeffreyi, and Tsuga mertensiana. Only P. albicaulis grows at these elevations currently; P. lambertiana is not locally native. Using contemporary distributions of the species, we modeled paleoclimate during the time of sympatry to be significantly warmer (+3.2°C annual minimum temperature) and slightly drier (-24 mm annual precipitation) than present, resembling values projected for California in the next 70-100 yr.

  11. Seismic and Aseismic Slip on the San-Jacinto Fault Near Anza, CA, from Joint Analysis of Strain and Aftershock Data

    The San-Jacinto Fault (SJF) is the most active fault in southern California, which together with the southern San-Andreas Fault accommodates a large fraction of the motion across the plate boundary. Seismicity along the SJF is distributed over several fault segments with distinct spatio-temporal characteristics. One of these segments, known as the Anza seismic gap, is a 25 km long strand almost devoid of seismicity. In recent years, four M4-5 events occurred SE of the gap. Despite their moderate magnitudes, these earthquakes triggered rich aftershock sequences and pronounced afterslip that lasted for several weeks, and was well captured by nearby PBO borehole strain meters. A similar transient was remotely triggered by the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. Geodetic and seismic observations following a local M5.4 mainshock indicate that afterslip propagated unilaterally towards the NW at speed of about 5 km/day. We infer the distribution of slip via a joint inversion of the aftershock and strain data. Our approach is based on Dieterich's (1994) model relating the evolution of seismicity rate to applied stresses, within the framework of rate-and-state friction. This approach provides resolution power at depths inaccessible to the surface geodetic network. Moreover, it allows us to gain important insights onto the fault mechanical properties. We apply this inversion scheme to episodes that occurred during 2010. Remarkably, we find that the cumulative moment released post-seismically during the locally triggered transient is 5-10 times larger than the moment of the mainshock. We show that the data favour a model in which deep slip transients, which may develop due to local or remote earthquakes, occur on a weak, close-to-velocity-neutral fault. The transients increase the stress along the Anza gap, and trigger earthquakes outside it through static stress transfer.

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

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

  13. CaMKII in sinoatrial node physiology and dysfunction.

    Wu, Yuejin; Anderson, Mark E

    2014-01-01

    The calcium and calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is present in sinoatrial node (SAN) pacemaker cells and is required for physiological "fight or flight" SAN beating rate responses. Inhibition of CaMKII in SAN does not affect baseline heart rate, but reduces heart rate increases in response to physiological stress. CaMKII senses intracellular calcium (Ca(2) (+)) changes, oxidation status, and hyperglycemia to phosphorylate substrates that regulate Ca(2) (+)-sensitive proteins, such as L-type Ca(2) (+) channels, phospholamban, and cardiac ryanodine receptors (RyR2). All of these substrates are involved in the SAN pacemaking mechanism. Excessive CaMKII activity, as occurs under pathological conditions such as heart failure, ischemia, and diabetes, can promote intracellular Ca(2) (+) overload and reactive oxygen species production. Oxidation of CaMKII (ox-CaMKII) locks CaMKII into a constitutively active configuration that contributes to SAN cell apoptosis and fibrosis. This ox-CaMKII-mediated loss of functional SAN cells contributes to SAN dysfunction (SND) and sudden death. Thus, CaMKII has emerged as a central regulator of physiological SAN responses and a key determinant of SND. PMID:24672485

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

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

    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.

  3. Large Earthquake Hazard of the San Jacinto Fault Zone, CA, from Long Record of Simulated Seismicity Assimilating the Available Instrumental and Paleoseismic Data

    We investigate spatio-temporal properties of earthquake patterns in the San Jacinto fault zone (SJFZ), California, between Cajon Pass and the Superstition Hill Fault, using a long record of simulated seismicity constrained by available seismological and geological data. The model provides an effective realization of a large segmented strike-slip fault zone in a 3D elastic half-space, with heterogeneous distribution of static friction chosen to represent several clear step-overs at the surface. The simulated synthetic catalog reproduces well the basic statistical features of the instrumental seismicity recorded at the SJFZ area since 1981. The model also produces events larger than those included in the short instrumental record, consistent with paleo-earthquakes documented at sites along the SJFZ for the last 1,400 years. The general agreement between the synthetic and observed data allows us to address with the long-simulated seismicity questions related to large earthquakes and expected seismic hazard. The interaction between m ? 7 events on different sections of the SJFZ is found to be close to random. The hazard associated with m ? 7 events on the SJFZ increases significantly if the long record of simulated seismicity is taken into account. The model simulations indicate that the recent increased number of observed intermediate SJFZ earthquakes is a robust statistical feature heralding the occurrence of m ? 7 earthquakes. The hypocenters of the m ? 5 events in the simulation results move progressively towards the hypocenter of the upcoming m ? 7 earthquake.

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

    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

    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% 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.

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

    Sneed, M.; Brandt, J.; Solt, M.

    2011-12-01

    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.

  8. Analysis of nonvolcanic tremor on the San Andreas Fault near Parkfield, CA using U.S. Geological Survey Parkfield Seismic Array

    Fletcher, Jon B.; Baker, Lawrence M.

    2010-01-01

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

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

    The San Jacinto Wilderness, located in the San Jacinto Mountains approximately 4 to 11 mi west of Palm Springs, California, was investigated by field and laboratory studies. The wilderness contains no known mineral deposits and no evidence of past mineral production. Geologic, geochemical, and geophysical studies indicate that the San Jacinto Wilderness has little promise for the occurrence of mineral or energy resources. However, if future studies of plutonism and related processes of mineralization are conducted in the San Jacinto Mountains and vicinity, the metasedimentary rocks and bordering intrusive contacts in the south parcel of the wilderness might merit further examination. In particular, such future studies might further evaluate the origin and significance of minor stream-sediment geochemical anomalies for tungsten, cerium, and lanthanum detected in our panned-concentrate samples collected near the heads of Murray and Andreas Canyons.

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

    PubMed Central

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

    2014-01-01

    A reduced sinoatrial node (SAN) functional reserve underlies the age-associated decline in heart rate acceleration in response to stress. SAN cell function involves an oscillatory coupled-clock system: the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR), a Ca2+ clock, and the electrogenic-sarcolemmal membrane clock. Ca2+-activated-calmodulin-adenylyl cyclase/CaMKII-cAMP/PKA-Ca2+ signaling regulated by phosphodiesterase activity drives SAN cells automaticity. SR-generated local calcium releases (LCRs) activate Na+/Ca2+ exchanger in the membrane clock, which initiates the action potential (AP). We hypothesize that SAN cell dysfunctions accumulate with age. We found a reduction in single SAN cell AP firing in aged (20–24 mo) vs. adult (3–4 mo) mice. The sensitivity of the SAN beating rate responses to both muscarinic and adrenergic receptor activation becomes decreased in advanced age. Additionally, age-associated coincident dysfunctions occur stemming from compromised clock functions, including a reduced SR Ca2+ load and a reduced size, number, and duration of spontaneous LCRs. Moreover, the sensitivity of SAN beating rate to a cAMP stress induced by phosphodiesterase inhibitor is reduced, as are the LCR size, amplitude, and number in SAN cells from aged vs. adult mice. These functional changes coincide with decreased expression of crucial SR Ca2+-cycling proteins, including SR Ca2+-ATPase pump, ryanodine receptors, and Na+/Ca2+ exchanger. Thus a deterioration in intrinsic Ca2+ clock kinetics in aged SAN cells, due to deficits in intrinsic SR Ca2+ cycling and its response to a cAMP-dependent pathway activation, is involved in the age-associated reduction in intrinsic resting AP firing rate, and in the reduction in the acceleration of heart rate during exercise.

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

    2010-05-01

    The mineralogy of the two uranium deposits (Victorino and San Marcos I) of Sierra San Marcos, located 30 km northwest of Chihuahua City, Mexico, was studied by optical microscopy, powder X-ray diffraction with Rietveld analysis, scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis, inductively coupled plasma spectrometry, and gamma spectrometry. At the San Marcos I deposit, uranophane Ca(UO2)2Si2O7·6(H2O) (the dominant mineral at both deposits) and metatyuyamunite Ca(UO2)(V2O8)·3(H2O) were observed. Uranophane, uraninite (UO2+x), masuyite Pb(UO2)3O3(OH)·3(H2O), and becquerelite Ca(UO2)6O4(OH)6 ·(8H2O) are present at the Victorino deposit. Field observations, coupled with analytical data, suggest the following sequence of mineralization: (1) deposition of uraninite, (2) alteration of uraninite to masuyite, (3) deposition of uranophane, (4) micro-fracturing, (5) calcite deposition in the micro-fractures, and (6) formation of becquerelite. The investigated deposits were formed by high-to low-temperature hydrothermal activity during post-orogenic evolution of Sierra San Marcos. The secondary mineralization occurred through a combination of hydrothermal and supergene alteration events. Becquerelite was formed in situ by reaction of uraninite with geothermal carbonated solutions, which led to almost complete dissolution of the precursor uraninite. The Victorino deposit represents the second known occurrence of becquerelite in Mexico, the other being the uranium deposits at Peña Blanca in Chihuahua State.

  12. Numerical Modeling Calcium and CaMKII Effects in the SA Node

    PubMed Central

    Yaniv, Yael; Maltsev, Victor A.

    2014-01-01

    Sinoatrial node (SAN) is the primary heart pacemaker which initiates each heartbeat under normal conditions. Numerous experimental data have demonstrated that Ca2+- and CaMKII-dependent processes are crucially important for regulation of SAN cells. However, specific mechanisms of this regulation and their relative contribution to pacemaker function remain mainly unknown. Our review summarizes available data and existing numerical modeling approaches to understand Ca2+ and CaMKII effects on the SAN. Data interpretation and future directions to address the problem are given within the coupled-clock theory, i.e., a modern view on the cardiac pacemaker cell function generated by a system of sarcolemmal and intracellular proteins.

    We investigate the fusion barriers for reactions involving Ca isotopes $\\mathrm{^{40}Ca}+\\mathrm{^{40}Ca}$, $\\mathrm{^{40}Ca}+\\mathrm{^{48}Ca}$, and $\\mathrm{^{48}Ca}+\\mathrm{^{48}Ca}$ using the microscopic time-dependent Hartree-Fock 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 pre-equilibrium GDR for the $\\mathrm{^{40}Ca}+\\mathrm{^{48}Ca}$ system and the associated $\\gamma$-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.

  4. Ca-Ca interaction in inverse sandwich Ca-C8H8-Ca.

    PubMed

    Liu, Nan-nan; Gao, Si-meng; Ding, Yi-hong

    2015-01-01

    The inverse sandwich Ca-C8H8-Ca is predicted to be an open-shell singlet state. Since the C8H8 ligand prevents the spin-up and spin-down electrons of different calcium atoms from forming Ca-Ca bonds, the spin-coupling electrons lead to a singlet diradical character. The metal-ligand interaction contributes to the stability of Ca-C8H8-Ca against dissociation and isomerization. For the coordination complex (DME)3Ca-C8H8-Ca(DME)3, the open-shell singlet state is unavailable, while the closed-shell singlet state with direct Ca-Ca bonds is more favorable, because dimethyl ether molecules could push the spin-paired electrons of different calcium atoms to migrate towards the direction of Ca-Ca bonding. For Ca-C4H4-Ca, the ground state is an open-shell singlet state, of which the diradical character is very similar to that of Ca-C8H8-Ca. For (DME)3Ca-C4H4-Ca(DME)3, the lowest energy is the triplet state. PMID:25382394

    In the 1936 film, "San Francisco" Jeannette MacDonald sings the film's title song, which of course includes the Gus Kahn-penned lyric "San Francisco, welcome me home again/I'm not at home to go roaming no more." For those who might be pining for Baghdad by the Bay (or for images from the infamous earthquake in 1906), this online collection from the San Francisco Public Library will be most welcome. All told, the San Francisco Historical Photograph Collection contains more than 250,000 photographs of San Francisco and California, although not all of these photographs are available online here. Visitors should begin their voyage through these images by using their search engine, which allows them to search by photographer, subject index, or by date. Perhaps the most novel way to search the images is to look through the photos by using an interactive map of the entire city. Here visitors can find photographs of the historic Moulin Rouge nightclub in the historic Barbary Coast area, or move on over to Sutro Heights over on the Pacific Ocean. For those who might be feeling a bit less adventurous, there are a number of thematic collections, including "Picture This: Family Photographs of Everyday San Francisco".

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

    USGS Publications Warehouse

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

    1999-01-01

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

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

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Cooper Percker, Oliver; Lara, Luis E.

    2015-04-01

    The San Félix-San Ambrosio (SF-SA) islands, Eastern Pacific, are fragments of two volcanic sequences 20 km apart. Both represent the top of an eroded large shield-volcano which rises over the Nazca Plate. Here, new geochemical and 40Ar/39Ar geochronological data are presented in order to understand magmatic evolution and source features. Two units are recognized on the SF island: (1) the Cerro Amarillo unit (CAU) (190±30 ka) formed by a hyaloclastic-tuff cone and basanitic lavas (Ba/Yb=519; Ba/Zr=2.19; La/Yb=49.88; Nb/Ta=17.96; Nb/Y=3.78; Nb/Zr=0.25) with absent or scarce modal content of plagioclase (<5%); and (2) Plateau unit (PU) (210±60 ka) formed by a basanitic lava succession with high modal content of plagioclase (>20%). The hyaloclastic-tuff cone of the CAU contains aphanitic-trachytic lithic fragments of Na-augite and kaersutite, which correspond to the final product of fractional crystallization of olivine+clinopyroxene+Fe-Ti oxides+apatite±plagioclase from alkaline primitive liquids similar to SF-SA lavas. The geochemical data suggest that the islands represent different evolutive stages of a same volcanic intraplate complex. The alkaline to transitional SA lavas (Ba/Yb=249; Ba/Zr=1.60; La/Yb=24.62; Nb/Ta=16.55; Nb/Y=2.22; Nb/Zr=0.19) would represent the shield stage (ca 2.9 Ma), while the basanitic SF lavas the post-erosional stage (ca 0.2 Ma). Considering the Sr-Nd-Pb isotopic data of the SF-SA lavas, previous works have ruled out a genetic relationship between SF-SA islands and the nearby Nazca Ridge. An heterogeneous mantle plume with mantelic metasomatized recycled lithologies is hypothesized as a possible magmatic source capable of explaining the petrologic differences between the SF-SA islands and between the CAU and PU, in SF island. This research is supported by FONDECYT Project 1141303.

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

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    VanGeen, A.; Luoma, S.N.

    1999-01-01

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

    Different input signals create their own characteristic Ca fingerprints. These fingerprints are distinguished by frequency, amplitude, duration, and number of Ca oscillations. Ca-binding proteins and protein kinases decode these complex Ca fingerprints through conformational coupling and covalent modifications of proteins. This decoding of signals can lead to a physiological response with or without changes in gene expression. In plants, Ca-dependent

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

  10. First-principles investigations of equilibrium calcium isotope fractionation between clinopyroxene and Ca-doped orthopyroxene

    2014-10-01

    Equilibrium fractionation factors of Ca isotopes among mantle minerals are essential for using Ca isotopes as an important tracer in mantle geochemistry. Using the vibrational frequencies obtained by the first-principles calculations based on density functional theory (DFT), we calculated equilibrium fractionation factors of Ca isotopes between two major Ca-bearing minerals, clinopyroxene (cpx) and orthopyroxene (opx). Our results show that opx has much higher 44Ca/40Ca than its co-existing cpx even at high temperatures (e.g., 1273 K), agreeing with the observations on mantle peridotites. In addition to the well-known temperature effect, our calculations for the first time reveal that the inter-mineral Ca isotope fractionation factor between opx and cpx also has a strong dependence on the chemical composition of opx (i.e., Ca content). Specifically, it increases substantially with decreasing Ca/Mg (atomic ratio) of opx when Ca/Mgopx is lower than 1/15. Such compositional effect on inter-mineral Ca isotope fractionation provides a convincing interpretation to the different isotope fractionations between coexisting opx and cpx observed in Kilbourne Hole and San Carlos peridotites.

    1998-07-01

    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.

    1996-11-01

    The City of San Diego remains on the cutting edge of water conservation. With an unwavering commitment to maintain an adequate water supply for the future, water repurification is now being considered. The City of San Diego and San Diego Water Authority (CWA) have proposed to recycle repurified water through San Vicente Reservoir. A key component of assessing the feasibility of such a project is to calculate the retention time of repurified water in the reservoir. Working with engineering consultant team (Montgomery-Watson Engineers and Flow Science, Incorporated) two tracer studies were conducted to model the circulation and mixing of repurified water introduced into the reservoir. The goal was to determine whether repurified water recycled through San Vicente will meet the retention time criteria established by the Department of Health Services. This presentation however, will not attempt to interpret the results of the study, that aspect will be evaluated by the Flow Scientist. The objective here is to explain how the project was carried out and to focus mostly on the analytical work performed on the samples by the chemist in the City of San Diego Water Quality Laboratory.

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

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    Zoback, M.L.; Jachens, R.C.; Olson, J.A.

    1999-01-01

    Seismicity and high-resolution aeromagnetic data are used to define an abrupt change from compressional to extensional tectonism within a 10- to 15-km-wide zone along the San Andreas fault on the San Francisco Peninsula and offshore from the Golden Gate. This 100-km-long section of the San Andreas fault includes the hypocenter of the Mw = 7.8 1906 San Francisco earthquake as well as the highest level of persistent microseismicity along that ???470-km-long rupture. We define two distinct zones of deformation along this stretch of the fault using well-constrained relocations of all post-1969 earthquakes based a joint one-dimensional velocity/hypocenter inversion and a redetermination of focal mechanisms. The southern zone is characterized by thrust- and reverse-faulting focal mechanisms with NE trending P axes that indicate "fault-normal" compression in 7- to 10-km-wide zones of deformation on both sides of the San Andreas fault. A 1- to 2-km-wide vertical zone beneath the surface trace of the San Andreas is characterized by its almost complete lack of seismicity. The compressional deformation is consistent with the young, high topography of the Santa Cruz Mountains/Coast Ranges as the San Andreas fault makes a broad restraining left bend (???10??) through the southernmost peninsula. A zone of seismic quiescence ???15 km long separates this compressional zone to the south from a zone of combined normal-faulting and strike-slip-faulting focal mechanisms (including a ML = 5.3 earthquake in 1957) on the northernmost peninsula and offshore on the Golden Gate platform. Both linear pseudo-gravity gradients, calculated from the aeromagnetic data, and seismic reflection data indicate that the San Andreas fault makes an abrupt ???3-km right step less than 5 km offshore in this northern zone. A similar right-stepping (dilatational) geometry is also observed for the subparallel San Gregorio fault offshore. Persistent seismicity and extensional tectonism occur within the San Andreas right stepover region and at least 15 km along-strike both to the SE and NW. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake may have nucleated within the San Andreas right stepover, which may help explain the bilateral nature of rupture of this event. Our analysis suggests two seismic hazards for the San Francisco Peninsula in addition to the hazard associated with a M = 7 to 8 strike-slip earthquake along the San Andreas fault: the potential for a M ??? 6 normal-faulting earthquake just 5-8 km west of San Francisco and a M = 6+ thrust faulting event in the southern peninsula.

    Stable isotope ({sup 18}O/{sup 16}O and {sup 13}C/{sup 12}C) and minor-element compositions (Sr/Ca and Mg/Ca ratios) of ostracodes and gastropods separated from marsh sediments from San Francisco Bay, Northern California, were used to reconstruct paleoenvironmental changes in Petaluma Marsh over the past 700 yr. The value of {delta}{sup 18}O in the marsh carbonates reflects changes in freshwater inflow, evaporation, and temperature. Mg/Ca and Sr/Ca in ostracode calcite reflect changes in both freshwater inflow and temperature, although primarily reflect temperature changes in the salinity range of about 10-35 {per_thousand}. Ostracode {delta}{sup 18}O values show a gradual increase by 5 {per_thousand} between 500 yr BR and the present, probably reflecting rising sea level and increased evaporation in the marsh. Superimposed on this trend are higher frequency Mg/Ca and {delta}{sup 18}O variations (3-4 {per_thousand}), probably reflecting changes in freshwater inflow and evaporation. A period of low Mg/Ca occurred between about 100-300 cal yr BP, suggesting wetter and cooler conditions during the Little Ice Age. Higher Mg/Ca ratios occurred 600-700 cal yr BP, indicating drier and warmer conditions during the end of the Medieval Warm Period. Both ostracode and gastropod {delta}{sup 13}C values decrease up-core, reflecting decomposition of marsh vegetation, which changes from C{sub 4} ({delta}{sup 13}C {approx} -12{per_thousand}) to CAM ({delta}{sup 13}C = -26 {per_thousand})-type vegetation over time.

  4. Sr 2+/Ca 2+ and 44Ca/ 40Ca fractionation during inorganic calcite formation: II. Ca isotopes

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Tang, Jianwu; Dietzel, Martin; Böhm, Florian; Köhler, Stephan J.; Eisenhauer, Anton

    2008-08-01

    Ca isotope fractionation during inorganic calcite formation was experimentally studied by spontaneous precipitation at various precipitation rates (1.8 < log R < 4.4 ?mol/m 2/h) and temperatures (5, 25, and 40 °C) with traces of Sr using the CO 2 diffusion technique. Results show that in analogy to Sr/Ca [see Tang J., Köhler S. J. and Dietzel M. (2008) Sr 2+/Ca 2+ and 44Ca/ 40Ca fractionation during inorganic calcite formation: I. Sr incorporation. Geochim. Cosmochim. Acta] the 44Ca/ 40Ca fractionation during calcite formation can be followed by the Surface Entrapment Model (SEMO). According to the SEMO calculations at isotopic equilibrium no fractionation occurs (i.e., the fractionation coefficient ?calcite-aq = ( 44Ca/ 40Ca) s/( 44Ca/ 40Ca) aq = 1 and ? 44/40Ca calcite-aq = 0‰), whereas at disequilibrium 44Ca is fractionated in a primary surface layer (i.e., the surface entrapment factor of 44Ca, F44Ca < 1). As a crystal grows at disequilibrium, the surface-depleted 44Ca is entrapped into the newly formed crystal lattice. 44Ca depletion in calcite can be counteracted by ion diffusion within the surface region. Our experimental results show elevated 44Ca fractionation in calcite grown at high precipitation rates due to limited time for Ca isotope re-equilibration by ion diffusion. Elevated temperature results in an increase of 44Ca ion diffusion and less 44Ca fractionation in the surface region. Thus, it is predicted from the SEMO that an increase in temperature results in less 44Ca fractionation and the impact of precipitation rate on 44Ca fractionation is reduced. A highly significant positive linear relationship between absolute 44Ca/ 40Ca fractionation and the apparent Sr distribution coefficient during calcite formation according to the equation ?Ca=(-1.90±0.26)·logD-2.83±0.28 is obtained from the experimental results at 5, 25, and 40 °C. Thus, Sr partitioning during calcite formation directly reflects Ca isotopic fractionation, independent of temperature, precipitation rate, and molar (Sr/Ca) aq ratio of the aqueous solution. If the (Sr/Ca) aq ratio is constant, ? 44/40Ca calcite-aq values can be directly followed by the Sr content of the precipitated calcite. A (Sr/Ca) aq ratio close to that of modern seawater yields the equation ?Ca=(-0.000940±0.000108)·Sr(mg/kgCaCO)-0.07±0.09. Our experimental results indicate that neither precipitation rate nor temperature dominantly controls Ca isotope fractionation. However, Ca isotopes and Sr content of inorganic calcite comprise an excellent environmental multi-proxy in natural and applied systems.

  5. Ca2+ current vs. Ca2+ channel cooperativity of exocytosis

    2009-01-01

    Recently there has been significant interest and progress in the study of spatio-temporal dynamics of Ca2+ that triggers exocytosis at a fast chemical synapse, which requires understanding the contribution of individual calcium channels to the release of a single vesicle. Experimental protocols provide insight into this question by probing the sensitivity of exocytosis to Ca2+ influx. While varying extracellular or intracellular Ca2+ concentration assesses the intrinsic biochemical Ca2+ cooperativity of neurotransmitter release, varying the number of open Ca2+ channels using pharmacological channel block or the tail current titration probes the cooperativity between individual Ca2+ channels in triggering exocytosis. Despite the wide use of these Ca2+ sensitivity measurements, their interpretation often relies on heuristic arguments. Here we provide a detailed analysis of the Ca2+ sensitivity measures probed by these experimental protocols, present simple expressions for special cases, and demonstrate the distinction between the Ca2+ current cooperativity, defined by the relationship between exocytosis rate and the whole-terminal Ca2+ current magnitude, and the underlying Ca2+ channel cooperativity, defined as the average number of channels involved in the release of a single vesicle. We find simple algebraic expressions that show that the two are different but linearly related. Further, we use 3D computational modeling of buffered Ca2+ diffusion to analyze these distinct Ca2+ cooperativity measures, and demonstrate the role of endogenous Ca2+ buffers on such measures. We show that buffers can either increase or decrease the Ca2+ current cooperativity of exocytosis, depending on their concentration and the single-channel Ca2+ current. PMID:19793978

    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. PMID:21555564

    The recently completed Extended Q-Range Small Angle Scattering Diffractometer (EQ-SANS) has put the focus on its software needs with renewed urgency. In a series of efforts, we aim at providing a complete set of software solutions on the EQ-SANS instrument. These programs include initial data processing, data correction and reduction, analytical model fitting to the scattering data, Monte Carlo simulation for structure determination, and virtual instrument simulation for experiment planning. SAAF is one such program for analytical data modeling. It takes the reduced EQ-SANS data and allows users to fit the data to analytical models. These models are easy to write. They can either be user written, or from the pre-supplied model library.

  13. Ca2+-Induced Ca2+ Release through Localized Ca2+ Uncaging in Smooth Muscle

    PubMed Central

    Ji, Guangju; Feldman, Morris; Doran, Robert; Zipfel, Warren; Kotlikoff, Michael I.

    2006-01-01

    Ca2+-induced Ca2+ release (CICR) from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) occurs in smooth muscle as spontaneous SR Ca2+ release or Ca2+ sparks and, in some spiking tissues, as Ca2+ release that is triggered by the activation of sarcolemmal Ca2+ channels. Both processes display spatial localization in that release occurs at a higher frequency at specific subcellular regions. We have used two-photon flash photolysis (TPFP) of caged Ca2+ (DMNP-EDTA) in Fluo-4–loaded urinary bladder smooth muscle cells to determine the extent to which spatially localized increases in Ca2+ activate SR release and to further understand the molecular and biophysical processes underlying CICR. TPFP resulted in localized Ca2+ release in the form of Ca2+ sparks and Ca2+ waves that were distinguishable from increases in Ca2+ associated with Ca2+ uncaging, unequivocally demonstrating that Ca2+ release occurs subsequent to a localized rise in [Ca2+]i. TPFP-triggered Ca2+ release was not constrained to a few discharge regions but could be activated at all areas of the cell, with release usually occurring at or within several microns of the site of photolysis. As expected, the process of CICR was dominated by ryanodine receptor (RYR) activity, as ryanodine abolished individual Ca2+ sparks and evoked release with different threshold and kinetics in FKBP12.6-null cells. However, TPFP CICR was not completely inhibited by ryanodine; Ca2+ release with distinct kinetic features occurred with a higher TPFP threshold in the presence of ryanodine. This high threshold release was blocked by xestospongin C, and the pharmacological sensitivity and kinetics were consistent with CICR release at high local [Ca2+]i through inositol trisphosphate (InsP3) receptors (InsP3Rs). We conclude that CICR activated by localized Ca2+ release bears essential similarities to those observed by the activation of ICa (i.e., major dependence on the type 2 RYR), that the release is not spatially constrained to a few specific subcellular regions, and that Ca2+ release through InsP3R can occur at high local [Ca2+]i.

  14. Salt Ponds, South San Francisco Bay

    2002-01-01

    higher resolution 1000 pixel-wide image The red and green colors of the salt ponds in South San Francisco Bay are brilliant visual markers for astronauts. The STS-111 crew photographed the bay south of the San Mateo bridge in June, 2002. This photograph is timely because a large number of the salt ponds (more than 16,500 acres) that are owned by Cargill, Inc. will be sold in September for wetlands restoration-a restoration project second in size only to the Florida Everglades project. Rough boundaries of the areas to be restored are outlined on the image. Over the past century, more than 80% of San Francisco Bay's wetlands have been filled and developed or diked off for salt mining. San Francisco Bay has supported salt mining since 1854. Cargill has operated most of the bay's commercial salt ponds since 1978, and had already sold thousands of acres to the State of California and the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge. This new transaction will increase San Francisco Bay's existing tidal wetlands by 50%. The new wetlands, to be managed by the California Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, will join the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge, and provide valuable habitat for birds, fish and other wildlife. The wetlands will contribute to better water quality and flood control in the bay, and open up more coastline for public enjoyment.

    During the January 17, 1994, Northridge earthquake, a 2.4 m diameter corrugated metal pipe was subjected to 90 m of extensive lateral crushing failure at the Lower San Fernando Dam. The dam and outlet works were reconstructed after the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake. In 1994, the dam underwent liquefaction upstream of the reconstructed berm. The pipe collapsed on the west side of the liquefied zone and a large sinkhole formed over the drain line. The failure of this drain line provides a unique opportunity to study the seismic response of buried drains and culverts.

  8. Divergence of Ca2+ selectivity and equilibrium Ca2+ blockade in a Ca2+ release-activated Ca2+ channel

    PubMed Central

    Yamashita, Megumi

    2014-01-01

    Prevailing models postulate that high Ca2+ selectivity of Ca2+ release-activated Ca2+ (CRAC) channels arises from tight Ca2+ binding to a high affinity site within the pore, thereby blocking monovalent ion flux. Here, we examined the contribution of high affinity Ca2+ binding for Ca2+ selectivity in recombinant Orai3 channels, which function as highly Ca2+-selective channels when gated by the endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ sensor STIM1 or as poorly Ca2+-selective channels when activated by the small molecule 2-aminoethoxydiphenyl borate (2-APB). Extracellular Ca2+ blocked Na+ currents in both gating modes with a similar inhibition constant (Ki; ?25 µM). Thus, equilibrium binding as set by the Ki of Ca2+ blockade cannot explain the differing Ca2+ selectivity of the two gating modes. Unlike STIM1-gated channels, Ca2+ blockade in 2-APB–gated channels depended on the extracellular Na+ concentration and exhibited an anomalously steep voltage dependence, consistent with enhanced Na+ pore occupancy. Moreover, the second-order rate constants of Ca2+ blockade were eightfold faster in 2-APB–gated channels than in STIM1-gated channels. A four-barrier, three–binding site Eyring model indicated that lowering the entry and exit energy barriers for Ca2+ and Na+ to simulate the faster rate constants of 2-APB–gated channels qualitatively reproduces their low Ca2+ selectivity, suggesting that ion entry and exit rates strongly affect Ca2+ selectivity. Noise analysis indicated that the unitary Na+ conductance of 2-APB–gated channels is fourfold larger than that of STIM1-gated channels, but both modes of gating show a high open probability (Po; ?0.7). The increase in current noise during channel activation was consistent with stepwise recruitment of closed channels to a high Po state in both cases, suggesting that the underlying gating mechanisms are operationally similar in the two gating modes. These results suggest that both high affinity Ca2+ binding and kinetic factors contribute to high Ca2+ selectivity in CRAC channels. PMID:24567508
