This study has been carried out focusing on petrofacies and geochronology of Permo-Carboniferous Gondwanan sequences of Barapukuria, Dighipara, and Khalaspir coal basins in the Bengal Basin and Jharia Basin in the Eastern ...

### Paleoseismic Investigation of the Relationship of Earthquake-Induced Liquefaction Deposits to Deformation at a Site in the New Madrid Seismic Zone ﻿

(2021-07-28)
Geophysical, geologic, and soil surveys were conducted at a site in the New Madrid seismic zone (NMSZ) to explore the relationship of fluvial sedimentary deposits to earthquake-induced liquefaction features, such as sand ...

### Palm Measure Invariance and Exchangeability for Marked Point Processes ﻿

(2008-12-15)
A random measure $\xi$ on a real interval $I$ is known to be exchangeable iff suitably reduced versions of the Palm distributions $Q_{t}$ are independent of $t \in I$. In this dissertation we prove a corresponding result ...

### Palmetto Navy: Ironclad Construction and the Naval Defense of Charleston During the Civil War ﻿

(2015-05-07)
This dissertation traces the creation and operation of the Charleston Naval Squadron in the Civil War through a look at the different ships and construction strategies implemented within Charleston Harbor. Under the ...

### Pannexin 1 Expression in Bovine Cumulus-Oocyte Complexes and Function During in vitro Maturation ﻿

(2019-07-03)
In this study we investigate the presence of pannexin 1 (PANX1) protein channels in bovine cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs). Pannexin channels are a recently discovered family of proteins which have been characterized in ...

### Parabolic-Elliptic Chemotaxis Models with Singular Sensitivity ﻿

(2022-07-25)  ETD File Embargoed
Chemotaxis describes the movement of biological cells or organisms in response to certain chemicals in their environments and occupies an essential role in coordinating cell movement in many biological circumstances such ...

### A Parallel Implementation of Fault Simulation on a Cluster of Workstations ﻿

(2006-12-15)
Parallel simulation on a cluster workstations is one method by which fault simulation time for large circuits can be reduced significantly. To get near-linear speedups from parallel processing, parallelization methods ...

### Parameter Estimation Techniques for Determining Safe Vehicle Speeds in UGVs ﻿

(2008-05-15)
This thesis develops simplified equations to predict a velocity in which vehicle rollover or tire saturation occurs. These equations are functions of different vehicle parameters that are important to vehicle handling ...
