  • Plant litter was collected in traps from 8 to 10 replicates each of Ambrosia dumosa, Ephedra nevadensis, Krameria parvifolia, Larrea tradentata, Lycium andersonii, and Lycium pallidum in Rock Valley, southern Nevada, USA. Collections were made at biweekly to monthly intervals from 1975 to 1977 and handsorted into leaves, stems, flowers, and fruits. Litter fall was generally correlated with annual rainfall, which was low in 1975 (62 mm), high in 1976 (223 mm), and close to the longterm mean in 1977 (141 mm). Leaves were generally the largest litter category, followed by stems, fruits, and flowers. Large sample variations were found,more » particularly for reproductive parts. Aboveground litter fall from the six species, which comprise approx. = 82% of pernnial plant biomass and approx. = 81% of shrub cover in Rock Valley, was about 117 kg/ha in 1975 and 318 kg/ha in 1976. Total aboveground litter fall for Rock Valley (all perennial and annual plants) was estimated to be 194 kg/ha in 1975 and 530 kg/ha in 1976. Distinct litter fall patterns occurred for shrub species and litter categories. Most litter fell during the summer months, with individual species peaks reflecting particular phenologies. Significant amounts of live aboveground biomass were shed as litter. Amounts of litter from the six species ranged from 7 to 83% of their respective live aboveground biomass.« less
  • On February 13 and April 1, 1960, nuclear test devices, reportedly in the kiloton range, were exploded in southern Algeria. These tests followed a prolonged period during which no nuclear tests were conducted, with the result that fall-out of short-lived fission products had decreased to a very low level. The tests offered an opportunity of observing fall-out from isolated and well- defined sources of activity in this area. Radioactive materials resulting from those tests were first picked up by the Israel Fall-out Moritoring Network on February 17, and were repeatedly observed again during the following months. The irterpretation of themore » resulting fall-out deposition pattern in the light of the meteorolcgical data gives some insight into the movement of radioactive clouds and their mode of deposition of activity. Data are presented graphically. (auth)« less
  • Wetlands are a major contributor to the global methane (CH{sub 4}) budget. Currently there is a consensus view that drought restrains CH{sub 4} emissions from wetlands. However, a 6-year field experiment investigating the effects of persistent summer water table drawdown on a gully mire in mid-Wales, U.K. demonstrated a 2-year boom and bust cycle of CH{sub 4} emissions followed by a recovery during the third year, when compared with emissions from a control wetland in which the water table remained at or above the peat surface. This cyclical trend was subsequently replicated by the control wetland following natural summer drought.more » The experimental wetland was affected less by this natural drought following previous water table drawdown. Depth profiles of CH{sub 4} production suggested that consecutive water table drawdown resulted in a translocation of peak methanogen activity lower down the peat profile, where emissions were affected less by subsequent drawdown. These findings suggest that wetland CH{sub 4} flux models need to consider the possibility that methane emission-water table relationships are dependent on the pattern and frequency of drought events.« less
