### 40Ar/39Ar age variations among cogenetic feldspars from the Benson Mines, New York ﻿

(2016-08-05)
The alkali feldspar group constitutes one the most common mineral groups of Earth’s crust. The 40Ar/39Ar method for dating potassium feldspars has proven to be a powerful analytical tool for evaluating low-temperature ...

### 40Ar/39Ar Ages of Feldspar and Muscovite from the Source and Detritus of the French Broad River, North Carolina ﻿

(2016-08-08)
As the westernmost metamorphic belt of the Appalachians, the Blue Ridge has been the subject of many geochronology studies. The Blue Ridge experienced high-grade deformation and peak metamorphism during Taconic orogeny, ...

### 40Ar/39Ar Ages of Muscovite from the Western Blue Ridge and Talladega Belt, Georgia and North Carolina ﻿

(2008-05-15)
Radiometric age constraints regarding the timing of metamorphism in the western Blue Ridge province of the southern Appalachians have been too limited or uncertain to enable broader correlation and understanding of Taconian, ...

### 40Ar/39Ar Dating of Detrital Muscovite and Sediment Compositional Analysis of the Pottsville Formation in the Black Warrior basin in Alabama: Implications for Tectonics and Sedimentation ﻿

(2012-11-05)
The Greater Black Warrior basin, including the Cahaba and Coosa synclinoria and the Black Warrior basin, contains the thickest preserved accumulation (ca. 2 km) of sediment in the Appalachian-Ouachita foreland. 40Ar/39Ar ...

### 40Ar/39Ar Diffusion and Age Constraints in Muscovite from the Ruby Mountains, Northeastern Nevada ﻿

(2018-06-05)
Plutonic rocks exposed in the Basin and Range province are known to have experienced widespread extension and uplift at ca. 16.5 Ma. This extension is broadly coincident with timing of earliest volcanism of the Yellowstone ...

### 4D Strain from Tagged Magnetic Resonance Images by Unwrapping the Harmonic Phase Images ﻿

(2010-12-14)
Accurate assessment of ventricular function is clinically important. Tagged magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the modality of choice for calculating parameters such as torsion, rotation and strain that characterize ...

### 5-cycle systems ﻿

(2014-04-25)
A k-cycle system of a multigraph G is an ordered pair (V,C) where V is the vertex set of G and C is a set of k-cycles, the edges of which partition the edges of G. A k-cycle system of lambda K_v is known as a lambda-fold ...

### 7 Tesla Functional Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Analysis of Pain Processing in Humans ﻿
