  • Directly estimating earthquake rupture area using second moments to reduce the uncertainty in stress drop 

    McGuire, Jeffrey J.; Kaneko, Yoshihiro (Oxford University Press, 2018-06-01)
    The key kinematic earthquake source parameters: rupture velocity, duration and area, shed light on earthquake dynamics, provide direct constraints on stress drop, and have implications for seismic hazard. However, for ...

  • Neural control of dynamic 3-dimensional skin papillae for cuttlefish camouflage 

    Gonzalez-Bellido, Paloma T.; Scaros, Alexia T.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Wardill, Trevor J. (Cell Press, 2018-04-04)
    The color and pattern changing abilities of octopus, squid, and cuttlefish via chromatophore neuro-muscular organs are unparalleled. Cuttlefish and octopuses also have a unique muscular hydrostat system in their skin. When ...
  • A phytoplankton model for the allocation of gross photosynthetic energy including the trade‐offs of diazotrophy 

    Nicholson, David P.; Stanley, Rachel H. R.; Doney, Scott C. (John Wiley & Sons, 2018-06-18)
    Gross photosynthetic activity by phytoplankton is directed to linear and alternative electron pathways that generate ATP, reductant, and fix carbon. Ultimately less than half is directed to net growth. Here we present a ...

    Umling, Natalie E.; Thunell, Robert C.; Bizimis, Michael (John Wiley & Sons, 2018-06-04)
    Published estimates of the radiocarbon content of middepth waters suggest a decrease in ventilation in multiple locations during the last glacial maximum (LGM; 24.0–18.1 ka). Reduced glacial ventilation would have allowed ...
