Mass wasting in coastal Alaska

, : Mass wasting in coastal Alaska.

Mass wasting, a dominant form of erosion in coastal Alaska, is common where slopes are oversteepened by glacial erosion, soils are newly developed and shallow, and there is abundant rainfall. Presently, the most practical policy for the forest-land manager is avoidance of susceptible areas during timber harvest. Old debris avalanche and flow scars are visible on aerial photos, but a more accurate identification of these areas can be made from a slope-gradient map, which can be used to (1) delineate potential slide areas, (2) determine percentage of slide-prone ground, and (3) establish cutting patterns causing minimum disturbance.

The adsorption process of mercury vapor on sulfur-impregnated activated carbon, active alumina, and zeolite was experimentally studied by using packed beds. It was found that the sulfur-impregnated active alumina and zeolite have unusual concave b...

A potential role of group IIC-attC introns in integron gene cassette formation, that is, the way in which they could provide the attC sequence essential for recombination, has been proposed. Group IIC introns usually target the attC site of gene c...
