USGS Materials Maps
Visitors can learn about the relatively new field of imaging spectroscopy, which allows specific absorption features, caused by chemical bonds in materials, to be mapped spatially. Topics include an introduction to the procedure, environmental applications, vegetation and biota mapping, lithologic, and mineral mapping. A set of links provides access to reports, accompanied by spectroscopic images, on the use of this new tool in chosen locations.
Offshore Hydromechanics includes the following modules: 1. Hydrostatics, static floating stability, constant 2-D potential flow of ideal fluids, and flows in real fluids. Introduction to resistance and propulsion of ships. Review of linear regular and irregular wave theory. 2. Analytical and numerical means to determine the flow around, forces on, and motions of floating bodies in waves. 3. Higher order potential theory and inclusion of non-linear effects in ship motions. Applications to motio
The Thin Blue Line-Forensic Scientists
This site draws on, and brings together, many scientific disciplines-identification of hairs and fibers, forensic psychology,DNA testing, photography, bloodstain pattern analysis, and computer forensics-that contribute to the integrated analysis of a crime and the physical evidence left at a crime scene.

Quelles machines pour enseigner la langue ?
This paper first presents a history of Computer-Assisted Learning (CAL), setting its origins in the 1920s with the invention of mechanical learning machines. The use of the computer then allowed the development of different types of language learning activities: comprehension tasks, simulations, etc. However, without the contribution of natural language processing (NLP), these activities are of limited use. We address the problem of the integration of NLP in CALL systems while summing up the cha

Closing the Gaps in Indigenous Mortality & Housing: Perspectives from the Social Sciences
In delivering an apology to the Stolen Generations the Prime Minister set a concrete target to halve the gap in infant mortality rates between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children within a decade. Related to this is a subsequent declared need to improve housing conditions for Indigenous Australians with the establishment of a housing policy commission as the first step. In this forum, leading academics discuss the scale and nature of the issues facing the new government as it attempts to achie

Introduction to X-ray Diffraction
This site is intended as a brief introduction to some of the common x-ray diffraction techniques used in materials characterization. It is designed for people who are novices in this field but are interested in using the techniques in their research. Topics include x-ray generation and properties, lattice planes and Bragg's Law, powder and thin film diffraction, texture measurement and pole figures, residual stress measurements, small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS), and x-ray crystallography.

Lecture 1: Introduction to the Jenkin Lecture
Patron of the Centenary, Lord Jenkin of Roding's inaugural Centenary lecture. Lord Jenkin of Roding, the grandson of the first Professor of Engineering Science at Oxford University, Frewen Jenkin, formally launched Oxford's Centenary of Engineering Science on 15th September 2007. In his introduction to The Jenkin Lecture Lord Roding, Patron of the Centenary, shared his recollections of his grandfather Frewen Jenkin - who was elected Oxford's first Professor of Engineering Science in 1908.
Elementary Statistics is an introduction to data analysis course that makes use of graphical and numerical techniques to study patterns and departures from patterns. The student studies randomness with emphasis on understanding variation, collects information in the face of uncertainty, checks distributional assumptions, tests hypotheses, uses probability as a tool for anticipating what the distribution of data may look like under a set of assumptions, and uses appropriate statistical models to
Why study languages?
Learning languages and finding out about other countries can be fun, as well as useful, and this unit is an introduction to the differences in culture and language about which we all need to be aware. There are 10 independent sections: any selection of them can be studied in any order. Some are about why knowledge of other languages and cultures can be important; others are about what it’s like to study a foreign language or to have a career using a foreign language. This unit is aimed at seco
References Air Waves "are in the Public Domain": Public Television Advocacy in the 1950s References
Although educational radio stations flourished in the early 1920s--more than 200 existed prior to the introduction of network radio in 1926--most faltered shortly thereafter. One reason was the alignment of the Federal Radio Commission (FRC), created by legislation declaring that the airwaves belonged to the public, with commercial interests. When the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) replaced the FRC in 1934, educational, religious, and labor groups promoted an amendment requiring the all
