A soil-vegetation-atmospere model for microclimatological research in arid regions
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1985)
A global study on phase velocity, group velocity and attenuation of Rayleigh waves in the period range 20 to 100 seconds
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1987)
Inhomogeneous potential vorticity homogenization and equilibrium in simple models of baroclinic instability with implications for the extratropical circulation by Pablo Zurita-Gotor.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
Baroclinic eddies are an important component of the General Circulation which regulate the extratropical climate by transporting heat and momentum. An idealization of this feedback is provided by baroclinic adjustment ...
Structural, thermal, and geomorphic evolution of the eastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
The eastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau adjacent to and north of the Sichuan Basin poses a fundamental geodynamic problem; the topography of eastern Tibet apparently developed in the absence of significant shortening of ...
Earthquake nucleation and rupture at a range of scales : laboratories, gold mines, and subduction zones
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
We measured spectral and time-domain properties of seismic events over a size range that spans magnitudes M [approx.] -2 to 8 in order to study earthquake source processes. In addition, we conducted laboratory experiments ...
The trace metal geochemistry of suspended oceanic particulate matter
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1989)
