  • The quasi-steady variation of uranium and radium isotopes from the decay of /sup 238/U, /sup 235/U, and /sup 232/Th has been determined along an idealized, one-dimensional aquifer which is a distributed source of activity and from which the transfer of radionuclides to solution occurs by alpha recoil and chemical exchange. The model includes the effects of dispersive flow and retardation by adsorption. The importance of these effects on the variation of U and Ra activity ratios along the model aquifer is shown. Predicted limiting activity ratios (for large flow times) of /sup 226/Ra//sup 223/Ra, /sup 224/Ra//sup 228/Ra, and /sup 226/Ra//supmore » 228/ are 21.4, 1.5, and (approx. 1.7 - 2.0) (U/Th)/sub s/, respectively (where (U/Th)/sub s/ is the activity ratio /sup 238/U//sup 232/Th in the aquifer rocks), although in many cases, an aquifer may not be long enough for the ratios involving /sup 226/Ra to achieve their limiting values.« less
  • The sensitivity of proteomics measurements using liquid chromatography (LC) separations interfaced with electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) improves approximately inversely with liquid flow rate, making attractive the use of smaller inner diameter LC columns. We report the development and initial application of 10 µm i.d. silica-based monolithic LC columns providing more sensitive proteomics measurements. The implementation provides robust performance and suitability for automated proteome analyses due to integration with a micro solid phase extraction pre-column for ease of sample injection and clean-up prior to the reversed phased LC separation. Greater than 10-fold improvement in sensitivity was obtained compared to analyses usingmore » more conventional capillary LC, enabling e.g. the identification of >5000 different peptides by MS/MS from 100-ng of a Shewanella oneidensis tryptic digest using an ion trap MS. The low nL/min LC flow rates provide more uniform signal intensities for different peptides, and provided improved quantitative measurements compared to conventional separation systems without the use of internal standards or isotopic labeling. The improved sensitivity allowed LC-MS measurements of immunopurified protein phosphatase 5 that were in good agreement with quantitative western blot analyses.« less

  • High-order harmonics and single attosecond pulse generation by using an infrared laser pulse combined with attosecond pulse trains (APT) interacting with He{sup +} have been investigated. We show that the ionization for different instant time intervals can be controlled by altering the time delay between the APT and the infrared pulse. Consequently, APT can be used as a tool to control the efficiency of high-order harmonics emitted at different times. By choosing appropriate APT and time delay, the driving pulse width for single attosecond pulse generation can be extended up to six optical cycles.
  • Interactions between surface and ground water are a key component of the hydrologic budget on the watershed scale. Models that honor these interactions are commonly based on the conductance concept that presumes a distinct interface at the land surface, separating the surface from the subsurface domain. These types of models link the subsurface and surface domains via an exchange flux that depends upon the magnitude and direction of the hydraulic gradient across the interface and a proportionality constant (a measure of the hydraulic connectivity). Because experimental evidence of such a distinct interface is often lacking in field systems, there ismore » a need for a more general coupled modeling approach. A more general coupled model is presented that incorporates a new two-dimensional overland flow simulator into the parallel three-dimensional variable saturated subsurface flow code ParFlow. In ParFlow, the overland flow simulator takes the form of an upper boundary condition and is, thus, fully integrated without relying on the conductance concept. Another important advantage of this approach is the efficient parallelism incorporated into ParFlow, which is efficiently exploited by the overland flow simulator. Several verification and simulation examples are presented that focus on the two main processes of runoff production: excess infiltration and saturation. The model is shown to reproduce an analytical solution for overland flow and compares favorably to other commonly used hydrologic models. The influence of heterogeneity of the shallow subsurface on overland flow is also examined. The results show the uncertainty in overland flow predictions due to subsurface heterogeneity and demonstrate the usefulness of our approach. Both the overland flow component and the coupled model are evaluated in a parallel scaling study and show to be efficient.« less
