    • Growth responses of giant sequoia to fire and climate in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, California

      Mutch, Linda Susan.; Swetnam, Thomas W.; Graumlich, Lisa J.; McPherson, Guy R. (The University of Arizona., 1994)
      I investigated the radial growth responses of giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) to fire in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Mean ring-width indices were used to compare growth between burned and unburned sites and between four different levels of fire severity. Mean growth increased in all sites in the postburn periods relative to pre-burn periods. Favorable climatic conditions contributed to these growth increases. Post-fire mean growth for four out of seven burn sites, however, was significantly higher than that on unburned sites. In general, lower severity fire resulted in lower magnitude growth increases than those observed after moderate to higher severity fire. Very high severity fire that caused extensive foliage damage resulted in post-burn growth suppressions. Post-fire growth increases occurred whether post-burn years were wet or dry. Fire effects on site conditions may moderate climatic impacts on sequoia growth. Giant sequoia seedling establishment was favored by a combination of high severity fire and wet post-burn conditions.
    • The Guadalajara Spanish as a second language summer program in Mexico

      Miller, Glen; Gillespie, Steven Ray, 1949- (The University of Arizona., 1992)
      The purpose of this study was to determine the self percieved levels of Spanish proficiencies of the 1990 and 1991 Guadalajara students at the beginning of their respective summer SSL programs and at the end of the program, the circumstances under which the student uses their Spanish skills, the frequency of usage of these Spanish skills and the satisfaction that the 1990 and 1991 Guadalajara summer SSL program students derived from their participation in their respective SSL summer classes. Four hundred and fifty-nine students from the 1990 and 1991 classes were surveyed to supply the information used in this research document.

    • Guided Wave Inspection of Pipes Using Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducers

      Vasiljevic, Milos; Kundu, Tribikram (The University of Arizona., 2007)
      This research covers modeling of Electro Magnetic Acoustic Transducers (EMATs) and their application in excitation and detection of longitudinal guided Lamb wave modes for evaluation of flaws in cylindrical pipes. The combination of the configuration of transducers and the frequency of the input current is essential for successful excitation of desired guided wave modes and for proper interpretation of the results. In this study EMATs were successfully constructed and longitudinal modes L(0,1) and L(0,2) were excited in the pipe. From the recorded signals the level of simulated damage in pipes could be assessed. It is also possible to theoretically predict the location of the pipe flaws. Theoretical predictions are matched with experimental results. Dents and holes in pipes are detected by appropriate signal processing of received L(0,1) and L(0,2) modes.
    • Guidelines for the Design and Development of Golf Courses Adjacent to Riparian Habitat in Semi-Arid Desert Landscapes

      Dietz, Robert Joseph.; Livingston, Margaret; Havens, William H.; Gimblett, H. Randal (The University of Arizona., 1998)
      With the growth of golf has come polarity. Environmentalists have targeted this growth as a misuse of precious land resources, fostering environmental fragmentation. The golf industry has countered by promoting the local implementation of strict environmental guidelines designed to minimize golf's impact on natural resources. Attempts to secure a compromise between developers and environmentalists in Pima County, Arizona have been moderately successful. There, existing environmental golf development guidelines are broad and insufficient to protect a declining riparian habitat. The purpose of this study is to offer improved guidelines for the future development of golf courses in the southwestern United States near sensitive riparian habitat. A comparative analysis of two local case studies provides the key to the development of new guidelines for golf courses near riparian areas in desert landscapes. Guidelines proposed within this study offer planning, design, construction, and maintenance direction related to the development of regional golf courses.
    • Guidelines: the use of cultural resource information in water resource environmental impact reports

      Altshul, Dale Alan.; Bradley, Michael D. (The University of Arizona., 1980)
      The essence of this study was to develop a standardized method for developing comprehensive planning techniques which catalogue and evaluate the good cultural resources. The method chosen has been the development of general guidelines to be followed by project planners and administrators in conducting cultural resource analysis on Federally funded water projects. Through the use of these guidelines the author has attempted to demonstrate complete analysis of the cultural resource component of the environmental constraint. Analysis of this constrain component should be broadly applicable. Water related projects were singled out because of their unique impact on cultural resources. In the Southwestern United States in particular, development has been riverine and riparian in both the prehistoric and historic eras. If it is indeed recognized that the past is important enough to rate at least partial preservation, then water resource projects must be evaluated in terms of their potential impact upon these resources. This need has been mandated by Federal code, and in many instances has been placed into State and local code. In this report techniques for putting law into practical action will be demonstrated.

    • The guitar anthology of Henry Francois de Gallot (1661): A preliminary study

      Anthony, James R.; Corcoran, Kathleen Anne, 1959- (The University of Arizona., 1988)
      The manuscript entitled "Pieces de Guitarre de differende Autheure recuellis par Henry Francois de Gallot" (GB:Ob Ms. Mus. Sch. C94) is one of the largest single collections of music for the Baroque guitar. The source contains over 600 pieces by various composers, including Gallot and Corbetta. An overview of the physical characteristics, organization, and stylistic features of this important source is intended to provide a basis for further study and concordance search.

    • Gustave Flaubert et La Conscience dans l'Art: Portrait de l'Artiste en Arbitre d'un Plan d'Action Responsable

      Le Hir, Marie-Pierre; Mastin, Randy Leon; Leibacher, Lise; McGinnis, Reginald; Provencher, Denis (The University of Arizona., 2016)
      It is virtually impossible today to broach the subject of realism in the arts without at least mentioning the name Gustave Flaubert. Long considered the father of realism in the modern novel, with his seminal works Madame Bovary and The Sentimental Education, Gustave Flaubert was an integral part of that continuing movement in France that was determined to sever once and for all the novel's binds to aristocratic convention and pretension in order to focus on the life of the common woman and man. And Flaubert did find himself in good company then--Zola, Stendhal, Balzac, Hugo, the list goes on, were artists all for whom the effort to advance the form, so that the novel had much greater relevance to the modern world, was of paramount importance. Singularly devoted to stripping the gauze from the lens that had softened the edge for centuries, these few would endeavor to present the human being, the human condition, in its raw, natural, often unpleasant form. For the majority of these writers, however, this new chapter in the history of the novel would rely almost exclusively on this change in primary subject matter. Not so chez Flaubert. In examining the correspondence and major works of Gustave Flaubert, it is possible to track the development of the artist, to follow the arc of thought and opinion that would ultimately shape Flaubert's determination to "write about nothing." Like most of his contemporaries, who were wholly (and vocally) disgusted by the world around them, what this determination meant for Flaubert was that the utter banality of modern life should be reflected in every face, it should be heard in every word, seen in every action, in every place, in every object. What this also meant, and that which further separates Flaubert from the pack, was that Flaubert's narrator, and indeed Flaubert himself, should blend so well with the background presented that both writer and conduit would ultimately disappear. Sorting through the formidable catalogue of analysis available today in articles, reviews and full-length texts, some written more than 100 years ago, it is possible to piece together the "how" at the heart of Flaubert's masterworks--the development and strategic use of free indirect speech, the reliance on action/inaction and dialogue, the astute staging of object, the seamless integration of place, all of which facilitates Flaubert's ability to present, if not the fully realized psychological portrait, then at the very least the sophisticated vehicle designed exclusively to reveal the inner life. In Flaubert's hands, we the reader would directly experience the world as it is/was through the eyes and minds of his principal characters. Still, the question remains. Flaubert would devote five full years of his life to the development of his first masterwork. He would devote another five to the crafting of the second. With this determined Flaubert, we have the who, therefore. With Madame Bovary and The Sentimental Education, we have the what. In France at mid-century, we find the when and the where and, through a close reading of the literature, we can begin to piece together the how. But why? In the correspondence alone, we bear witness to a man struggling mightily to bring to fruition two works of highly uncertain promise. Why would Flaubert endure, why would he fight, when the result, the future of these works, was so uncertain? Via the analysis of specific strings of correspondence, through a sampling of solid, inspired critique, through close readings of the texts themselves and, of course, through acknowledgment of the no-holds-barred approach of the author himself, we arrive at one possible explanation here. "Notre coeur ne doit être bien qu'à sentir celui des autres," Flaubert once wrote, and it is with this in mind that we offer to you this glimpse of the man who would live and die by that problematic, much-maligned maxim "art for the sake of art."
