Assessing the Impact of Changing Climate on Agriculture in Missouri and the use of Crop Insurance as Adaptation Strategy (1980-2010)
as an adaptation strategy by farmers in Missouri is driven primarily by the volume of crop production and not vulnerability to changing climate....
Detrital zircon geochronology of the Upper Miocene Boleo Formation in the Santa Rosalia, Baja California Sur, Mexico
(University of Missouri -- Kansas City, 2019)
The Santa Rosalía Basin (SRB), Baja California Sur, is a transtentional to rift basin that formed during the opening of the Gulf of California. The Boleo Formation is the oldest and dominant sedimentary fill of the ...
The Influence of Regional Stress and Structural Control Over the Shape of Maar Craters
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2018)
This study aims to gain a better understanding of the factors leading to the expressed shape of individual maars in volcanic fields. Maars are volcanic features produced by phreatomagmatic eruptions which excavate a ...
Ripening Kinetics of Iron Sulfides in the Presence/Absence of a Carbonyl Group
(University of Missouri -- Kansas City, 2018)
The ripening of mackinawite (Fe₁+ₓS) to pyrite (FeS₂) or greigite (Fe²⁺Fe³⁺ ₂S₄) was examined at temperatures between 23 and 90°C to better understand the kinetics of low temperature iron sulfide crystallization in the ...
Scientific Evidence on the Environmental and Health Effects of Land Application of Biosolids
The study is an objective evaluation of the controversy on whether the practice of land application of biosolids for soil enrichment and restoration poses significant harm to the environment, human and animal health. ...
A Comparison Study of Grace-Based Groundwater Modeling for Data-Rich and Data-Scarce Regions
Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) modeling in water resources is an emerging field in hydrology. Investigation of groundwater change using remote sensing data helps overcome data limitation at a regional ...
