Radiometric age map of southcentral Alaska

This map includes published, thesis, and open-file radiometric data available to us as of June, 1975. Some dates are not plotted because of inadequate location data in the original references.The map is divided into five sections, based on 1:1,000,000 scale enlargements of the National Atlas maps of Alaska. Within each section (e.g., southeastern...

Location and description of spiral-shaped microorganisms in the normal rat cecum

Some indigenous microorganisms have been shown to localize in certain anatomical sites of the digestive tract of mammals. We studied the ceca of normal adult rats by light and electron microscopy to determine whether any specific bacterial population localizes in this area. All rats studied showed that the crypt was packed with organisms whose...

Effect of vancomycin, streptomycin and tetracycline pulsating jet lavage on contaminated wounds

The treatment of contaminated wounds in order to prevent infection has not varied remarkably for several decades. Although much effort has been directed towards finding a more satisfactory treatment, these efforts have generally resulted in failure or in minimal improvement.Studies at this Institute have shown that pressure pulsating water lavage...

Data on uranium and radium in ground water in the United States, 1954 to 1957

This report is one of a series resulting from a study by the U.S. Geological Survey to determine the occurrence and distribution of naturally radioactive substances in water. From 1954-57 uranium and radium concentrations were determined in 561 samples, mainly of ground water, having wide geologic and geographic distribution. These concentrations...

Water problems in the present trend towards greater aridity

In the past few days we have heard a number of scientists, gathered here at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, discuss research work which, in one manner or another, bears on problems related to water resources. They have been discussing, particularly, problems in the field of climatology, and have speculated on the meaning of the results of...
