Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling in a Peanut-Cotton-Bahiagrass Rotation 

Audrey, Gamble (2013-12-11)
Restoration of soil fertility is important in the peanut-producing portion of the Coastal Plain, where many soils are highly weathered, structurally weak, and low in fertility as a result of intense row cropping. A ...

Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling under Conservation and Conventional Tillage in Peanut and Collard Agroecosystems 

Mulvaney, Michael (2009-12-18)
Although there has been considerable adoption of conservation tillage by agronomic and vegetable producers in the US, information on nutrient release from organic residues is lacking. Information on release of nutrients ...

Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling under Warm Season Turfgrasses 

Hamido, Said (2014-06-06)
Despite its large-scale presence in the urban ecosystem, the role of turfgrasses in C and N cycling in urban soils in the southeastern United States has not been documented, and in particular C and N cycling studies in ...

Carbon Nanofiller Reinforced Epoxy Nanocomposites 

Uzunpinar, Cihan (2011-07-28)
Nanocomposites are unique materials with unique physical, mechanical and chemical properties that can find use in a wide range of applications. Nanocomposites are made of at least one nanosize material with polymeric systems ...

Carbon Nanotube Based Vacuum Diode Characteristics at Elevated Temperatures 

Moxley, Michael (2016-05-18)
Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes twenty years ago, they have been studied heavily. Carbon nanotubes are known to have excellent mechanical, electrical, and thermal conductivity properties as well as for having a ...

Carbon Nanotube Cold Cathodes for Applications under Vacuum to Partial Pressure in Helium and Dryair 

Bokka, Ramesh (2011-05-10)
Carbon nanotubes are known for their excellent field emission characteristics. This property of carbon nanotubes makes them a good choice for the cold cathode material for many high power applications. In this work carbon ...

Carbon Nanotube Vacuum Tube Diode RFID Tag 

Jung, Michael (2015-08-19)
Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have been studied for the past two decades and their research continues with new commercial and practical purposes. The structure of carbon and the many shapes it can form makes it an extremely ...

Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) as Electron Emitters for Plasmas Operating in Subatmospheric pressure under DC and Pulsed Fields 

Li, Huirong (2014-05-05)
Subatmospheric pressure is defined as the pressure from several milliTorr to several hundred Torr. The plasmas operated in subatmospheric pressure have the advantages of easier construction and stable operation. The ...

Carbon Sequestration and Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction from Horticultural Production Practices 

Marble, Stephen Christopher (2013-02-27)
Over the past three decades, one issue which has received significant attention from the scientific community is climate change and the possible impacts on the global environment. Increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) ...

Carbonyl inhibition and detoxification in microbial fermentation of biomass hydrolysates 

Xie, Rui (2014-04-29)
Bioconversion of lignocellulosic biomass to biofuels has great potential to supplement petroleum-derived fuels. One of the major barriers to bioconversion is the release of considerable amount of carbonyl degradation ...

Carcass and Growth Characteristics and Consumer Acceptance of Grain vs. Forage Finishing of Standard and Miniature Cattle of the Same Age 

Welch, Tabitha (2012-04-19)
Crossbred standard cattle (STD, n=7) and crossbred miniature cattle (MINI, n=7) were raised on grain and forage finishing systems to determine the differences in growth performance, carcass characteristics, and retail yield ...

Carcass, Sensory, Quality and Instrumental Color Characteristics of Serially Harvested Forage-Fed Beef 

Rowe, Clinton (2010-12-06)
Striploins were used in two successive studies to evaluate the effects of serially harvested forage-finished steers and forage vs. grain-finished beef. The first study included six groups of steers that were serially ...

Cardiac Output Measurements with UDCO and ECHO under general anesthesia during normotension, hypotension and hypertension in adult alpacas 

Diaz Falcon, Noelia (2021-07-30)
Cardiac output (CO) is defined as the quantity of blood pumped into the aorta each minute by the heart. Measurement of CO is considered an important tool to determine oxygen deliver to the tissues. Currently, there are ...

Cardioprotective mechanisms of PPAR gamma in diabetic heart 

Nanayakkara, Gayani (2014-04-23)
Patients with diabetes exhibit significantly altered renin-angiotensin system (RAS). Recently it has been determined that hyperglycemic conditions induce an increase in angiotensin II (AT II) expression; specifically in ...
