• #### Oblique-incidence fiber-optic reflectometry for measuring absorption and scattering in turbid media ﻿

(1997)
Oblique-incidence, fiber-optic reflectometry is a simple and accurate method for measuring the absorption and reduced scattering coefficients, $\mu\sb{a}$ and $\mu\sb{s}\sp\prime ,$ of semi-infinite turbid media. Obliquely ...

(1973)
• #### Observation of jet photoproduction and comparison to Monte Carlo simulation ﻿

(1994)
The photon is the carrier of the electromagnetic force. However in addition to its well known nature, the theories of QCD and quantum mechanics would indicate that the photon can also for brief periods of time split into ...
• #### Observational analysis of the compositional variation in solar filaments ﻿

(2007)
Solar filaments have long been associated with coronal mass ejections and Space Weather phenomena. Filaments are dynamcal, and changes in their overall mass or its distribution could trigger an eruption. However, a ...
• #### Observational and theoretical interpretation of energetic particle transport in solar flares ﻿

(2008)
The combination of excellent space-based remote sensing, and image reconstruction techniques, as well as improvements in numerical modeling, help enhance our understanding of particle transport in solar flares. We conduct ...

• #### Observations of dayside magnetopause oscillations and concurrent temporal variations in cusp precipitation ﻿

(1999)
On April 13, 1996, while Russia's Interball Tail spacecraft was travelling through the dayside magnetosheath, NASA's Polar spacecraft traversed the northern cusp. Transients observed in the data from the Interball Tail/SCA-1 ...
• #### Observations of magnetic signatures and structure in the dayside ionosphere of Venus ﻿

(1993)
Present models of the Venus solar wind interaction do not allow for changes in the orientation of the field as you approach the planet. Analysis of high resolution magnetic field data from the Pioneer Venus Orbiter spacecraft ...

• #### Obstructions to the Concordance of Satellite Knots ﻿

(2012-09-05)
Formulas which derive common concordance invariants for satellite knots tend to lose information regarding the axis a of the satellite operation R(a,J). The Alexander polynomial, the Blanchfield linking form, and Casson-Gordon ...
• #### Occupancy Study of the CMS Pixel Subdetector for the Phase 1 Upgrade ﻿

(2013-08-15)
The Phase 1 Upgrade for CMS includes the installation of a new pixel subdetector, complete with newly designed readout chips as well as a new geometry. This upgrade is necessary to replace the existing irradiated pixel ...
• #### "Oculus" for chamber orchestra ﻿

(2002)
"Oculus" is comprised of a single movement for chamber orchestra. The title refers to the circular opening at the top of a domed structure such as the Pantheon in Rome. An oculus allows natural light to flow freely in and ...
• #### Of kings and common touch: An answer to the question of James and the educated lay reader ﻿

(2001)
"Of Kings and the Common Touch" asserts that James is accessible and likeable in ways consistent with the fundamental interests of common readers. The American depicts a transcendently American Christopher Newman who ...

(1974)
• #### Off the wall: Exploring waterfront reciprocities of surface and space ﻿

(2004)
Off the Wall explores how Tampa's central business district sea wall may become more than a water/land boundary, functioning as an interactive surface and infrastructure mechanism that unifies, organizes, and defines public ...
• #### Offshore Concourse: New ground for a landless urbanism ﻿

(2010)
'Offshore Concourse' is an urban proposal for a response to changing ecological, economic and political conditions in Alaska and the Arctic. Since 2007, the Northwest Passage has been navigable without need of an icebreaker. ...
• #### Oh No You Didn't ﻿

(2004)
Oh No You Didn't features battling of different musical parameters. These confrontations occur through both simultaneous and alternating presentation of contrasting ideas. The piece's form contains different levels of ...
• #### Oil and Macroeconomy ﻿

(2013-09-16)
Traditional literature on energy economics gives a central role to exogenous political events (supply shocks) or to global economic growth (aggregate demand shock) in modeling the oil market. However, more recent literature ...
• #### OIL SLICK BEHAVIOUR IN WAVES ﻿

(1982)
An experimental investigation was performed to determine the drift velocities of oil slicks and the pile up of oil layers against barriers in the presence of water waves. Other investigations of the drift response were ...
