Lithofacies heterogeneity, fluvial style variations, and floodplain vegetation distributions : deposition and diagenesis of the Chinle Formation at Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona.
The Upper Triassic Chinle Formation in the Petrified Forest National Park (PFNP) was evaluated using sedimentologic, stratigraphic, paleopedologic and petrographic criteria. The study interval, which includes the Blue Mesa ...
Seismic anisotropy in Texas and Oklahoma and its relationship to tectonic events that shaped southern Laurentia.
We present new shear wave splitting measurements of approximately 1500 SKS phases recorded at 176 broadband seismic stations deployed in Texas and Oklahoma. SKS splitting on the North American (NA) craton show NE-SW fast ...
Existence of positive solutions to right focal three point singular boundary value problems.
In this dissertation, we prove the existence of positive solutions to two classes of three point right focal singular boundary value problems of at least fourth order.
Pseudo self-forgiveness : a response to self-integrity threat.
Self-forgiveness has been promoted as a self-compassionate response following ownership of one’s transgressions. However, a sense of self-forgiveness may also result from defensive processes that circumvent responsibility, ...

Communication expectations between younger superiors and older subordinates.
One of the most important workplace relationships is that of superiors and subordinates. However, it is not clear if this relationship becomes more complex if traditional age roles are reversed and a younger superior ...
Seismic Vp & Vs tomography of Texas and Oklahoma with a focus on the Gulf Coast margin.
We present new 3D seismic tomography velocity models with data from 326 stations, located in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico, which utilized 537 seismic events. Tomography results on the North American (NA) craton show a ...
