Impact of Surface Topography on Colloidal and Bacterial Adhesion
Although the importance of substrate surface topography in colloidal and bacterial adhesion is widely recognized, how it affects the adhesion process has been a controversial topic. In this study, the impact of surface ...
Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols in Kathmandu, New Hampshire, and Texas: Carbonaceous, Isotopic, and Water-soluble Organic Composition
To improve the understanding of aerosol composition, sources, and spatial and temporal variations, atmospheric aerosols were characterized in three locations. Ambient aerosols were characterized using 24-hour samples ...
Developing a Radar-based Flood Alert System For Sugar Land, Texas
This thesis presents a framework for a radar-based flood alert system (FAS) for the Oyster Creek Watershed to aid the City of Sugar Land in flood forecasting. The motivation for using this particular system stems from a ...
Synthesis and application of phosphonate scale inhibitor nanomaterials for oilfield scale control
In this study, several synthesis routes were adopted to prepare nanometer sized metal-phosphonate particles to expand their use in the delivery of phosphonate mineral scale inhibitors into formation porous media for oilfield ...
Strategies for the Mitigation of Oxysterol-Induced Cytotoxicity
Chronic exposure to some oxysterols might contribute to deterioration of human or environmental health. Oxysterols are both biomarkers of oxidative stress as well as mediators of its damage, and play a central role in many ...
