Effect of Heterogeneous Prestress on Near-Field Rupture Directivity
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...
Respiratory microorganisms capture energy for growth and maintenance as they transfer electrons from energy sources to appropriate electron acceptors. Controlling the availability of electron donor and acceptor pairs provides opportunities for investigating fundamental aspects of energy transformation and distribution in defined and un defined microbial cultures. For example, we have noted that in all bacteria investigated to date electron acceptor limitation prompts the production of...
