Fatty Acid Analysis of Egg Yolks as a Method in Determining Diet in a Seabird, the Black-Legged Kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla)
Fatty acid signature analysis is a new technique that may provide a non-invasive way to obtain dietary information from seabirds using their eggs. The fatty acid profile of the mother's diet should be reflected in the profile in the yolks of her eggs ...

Flexural Strength of Pre-stressed Wood-Plastic Composite Beams
Pre-stressing a beam is the practice of applying a tendon to a beam which effectively increases the beams ability to resist tensile forces by creating stresses opposite to those caused by external loads. Prestressing allows beams, floors, and bridges ...

Flume testing of character (size)of undisturbed sediment samples
We are developing a flume that will be capable of testing the erodibility and character (size) of eroded sediment particles. Existing flumes measure the rate of sediment erosion as a function of the hydrodynamic conditions, but not the character of t ...
