Effect of Heterogeneous Prestress on Near-Field Rupture Directivity Andrew Gritz M.S. Candidate Department of Geological Sciences San Diego State University Advisor Steven Day To supplement the very limited number of strong motion recordings in areas near to earthquake sources, numerical modeling of the rupture process and radiated seismic energy was carried out to study such ground motion. The near fault region is susceptible to very strong shaking both because of proximity to the...

International Soil Metagenome - Sequencing Project

submitted by: dougramsey
Soil is often considered to be one of the main reservoirs of microbial diversity on the planet. This diversity could provide a range of information about the origins of microbial functional diversity as well as novel genetic resources. However, our historical inability to cultivate the majority of soil bacteria has hampered our understanding and exploitation of this large diverse community (more than 95% are often considered inaccessible through traditional culture techniques). Over the last...
