Soil surface-seal measurement using high-resolution x-ray computed tomography (HRCT)
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Rainfall on bare soil breaks soil aggregates, detaching particles, plugging pores and decreasing porosity in the top few mm of soil. This reduces hydraulic conductivity and increases runoff through a process known as surface ...
Impacts of soil management practices on soil fertility in potato-based cropping systems in the Bolivian Andean highlands
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
Due to changes in climate and socioeconomic developments, current soil management practices in the Bolivian Andean Highlands may be increasing soil degradation thereby threatening food security. A study was established in ...
A formal evaluation of storm type versus storm motion
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
, and subsequently, forecast for motion. This publication focuses on identifying the ambient environmental characteristics typical of several types of severe convective storms. Three types of severe convective storms are examined: supercell, linear, and multicell...
