  • B cell development in common variable immunodeficiency of horses 

    Such, Kimberly (2010-01-27)
    Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID) has been diagnosed in several horses, and is characterized by a lack of B cells in peripheral blood and lymphoid tissues. CVID manifests in adult horses, causes recurrent bacterial ...
  • b-Bit Minwise Hashing in Practice 

    Li, Ping; Shrivastava, Anshumali; König, Arnd Christian (Fifth Asia-Pacific Symposium on Internetware, 2013-10)
    Minwise hashing is a standard technique in the context of search for approximating set similarities. The recent work [26, 32] demon- strated a potential use of b-bit minwise hashing [23, 24] for ef- ficient search and ...

    van de Giesen, Nick; Steenhuis, Tammo S.; Parlange, Jean-Yves (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    In 1993, Jean-Yves Parlange developed a very generic solution for the Laplace equation in the archetypal drainage geometry of an aquifer on an impermeable layer between two parallel drains with linearized boundary conditions. ...
  • B1. Recession Slope Analysis Coefficients, Low Flows, Groundwater and Precipitation Responses for Climate Change Studies 

    Sharma, Asha N; Pereira, Vania; Walter, Michael Todd (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    Recession slope analysis has often been used to estimate aquifer thickness, i.e. groundwater depth. Here we look at long term trends in the coefficients of this analysis for several large watersheds in areas potentially ...
  • B2. Modelling (Flash) Floods in a Dutch Lowland Catchment 

    Brauer, Claudia; Teuling, Ryan; Overeem, Aart; van der Velde, Ype; Hazenberg, Pieter; Warmerdam, Piet; Kloosterman, Peter; Uijlenhoet, Remko (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    On 26 August 2010 the eastern part of The Netherlands and the bordering part of Germany were struck by a series of heavy rainfall events. We investigated the unprecedented flash flood triggered by this exceptionally heavy ...
  • B2. The Isotopic Age of Runoff in Natural Flow Systems 

    Duffy, Christopher (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    This paper outlines a theory describing fundamental controls on the isotopic “age” of runoff from watersheds. In this context “age” is defined as the time since the water and environmental tracer entered the system as ...
  • B3. Approximate Solution to the Generalized Boussinesq Equation 

    Telyakovskiy, Aleksey S (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    The Boussinesq equation describes water flows in unconfined groundwater aquifers under the Dupuit assumption that the equipotential lines are vertical, making the flow essentially horizontal. It is a nonlinear diffusion ...
  • B3. Climate-vegetation-soil Interactions and Long-term Hydrologic partitioning: Signatures of Catchment Co-evolution? 

    Troch, Peter A. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    Catchment hydrologic partitioning, regional vegetation composition and soil properties are strongly affected by climate (Budyko, 1974; Whittaker, 1962; Jenny, 1941), but the effects of climate-vegetation-soil interactions ...
  • B4. Capillary Effects on Groundwater Waves in Unconfined Coastal Aquifers 

    Kong, Jun; Shen, Cheng-Ji; Xin, Pei; Song, Zhi-Yao; Li, Ling; Barry, D.A.; Jeng, D.-S.; Lockington, D. A.; Stagnitti, F.; Parlange, J.-Y. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    Various types of Boussinesq model exist, including those that account for finite-depth aquifers and capillary effects. Such models are used to simulate propagation of groundwater waves (watertable fluctuations) due to, for ...
  • B4. Improving Risk Estimates of Runoff Producing Areas: Formulating Variable Source Areas as a Bi-variate Process 

    Cheng, Xiaoya; Dahlke, Helen E.; Shaw, Stephen B.; Marjerison, Rebecca D.; Yearick, Chris; DeGloria, Stephen D.; Walter, M. Todd (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    Predicting runoff producing areas and their corresponding risks is important for developing watershed management strategies for protecting water quality from nonpoint source pollution. However, the currently proposed ...
  • B5. Determining Waste Load Allocations for Water Bodies by Coupling an In-Stream Macroinvertebrate Model with SWAT 

    Garland, Casey A; Gladding, Steven M; Duffy, Brian T; Steenhuis, Tammo S (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    The Clean Water Act requires states to identify water bodies that do not meet water quality criteria for their designated use (human consumption, aquatic life support, recreational use, etc.) and develop total daily maximums ...
  • B6. Suitability of Using Groundwater Temperature and Geology to Predict Arsenic Contamination in Drinking Water – A Case Study in Central Mexico 

    Gevaert, Anouk I.; Hoogesteger, Jaime D.; Stoof, Cathelijne R (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    Arsenic in drinking water poses a risk to people’s health and can cause skin disorders, irritation of the respiratory and digestive systems and increased risk of cancer. In parts of Irapuato, central Mexico, arsenic levels ...
