Numerical simulation of the Jovian torus-driven plasma transport
The Rice Convection Model has been modified and applied to the study of the Jovian magnetospheric system, which is interchange unstable. The basic interchange instability of the Io plasma torus is opposed by pressure ...
Mesozoic Geology of the Sand Springs Range, West-Central Nevada
Mesozoic structures and rock types mapped at a scale of 1:80000 in the Sand Springs Range (SSR), west-central Nevada, differ from those in adjacent allochthons. SSR structures and rock types contrast with those in better-known ...
The growth of fractures in the Earth
Fracture growth under compressive loading is studied using the maximum strain energy release rate criterion by means of both the finite element and the boundary element methods. Although this approach is computationally ...
Global analysis of linearized inversion for the acoustic wave equation
To predict the location of natural resources and reduce the cost of exploration, geophysicists rely on various techniques to map the internal structure of the earth. One common mapping method probes the earth's interior ...
Scattering of acoustic energy from rough deep ocean seafloor: A numerical modeling approach
The highly heterogeneous and anelastic nature of deep ocean seafloor results in complex reverberation as acoustic energy incident from the overlaying water column interacts and scatters from it. To gain a deeper understanding ...
