    We anticipate the first direct detections of gravitational waves (GWs) with Advanced LIGO and Virgo later this decade. Though this groundbreaking technical achievement will be its own reward, a still greater prize could ...
  • Dionne, Michele; Burdick, David M.; Hobbie, Erik A.; Vincent, Robert (Springer US, 2015-05)
    High marsh pools are natural features in New England salt marshes that provide important subtidal refuge for the dominant resident fish, Fundulus heteroclitus (mummichog). F. heteroclitus is considered an important component ...
  • Sheikh, J. A.; Nazarewicz, W.; Kerman, Arthur Kent; Pei, J. C. (American Physical Society, 2009-05)
    The dependence of fission barriers on the excitation energy of the compound nucleus impacts the survival probability of superheavy nuclei synthesized in heavy-ion fusion reactions. In this work, we investigate the isentropic ...

  • Rockland, Kathleen (Frontiers Media, 2010-06)
    “Column,” like “gene,” has both conceptual and linguistic shortcomings. The simple question “what is a column” is not easy to answer and the word itself is not easy to replace. In the present article, I have selected five ...
