Within a few hours of a quake, the USGS tries to figure out who going out to the location of the earthquake, and what equipment they be taking. For the Ridgecrest quakes, they did flyovers in a helicopter looking for ruptures, and then sent people on the ground to measure the rupture. They then deployed additional seismometers so that we could get an even clearer picture of any aftershocks..
AMERICAN RIVER The section of the American upstream from the power lines at Ancil Hoffman Park to the USGS gauging station wire crossing the river below the weir at Nimbus Hatchery closes to all fishing Oct. 31. In the meantime, the very few anglers on the water have been finding fair fishing for mostly smallish steelhead plus striped bass surprising given that years past, stripers have been replaced by salmon, which again sadly appear to be mostly no shows.
A common problem across science and engineering is that aspects of models have to be estimated from observed data. An instance of this familiar to control engineers is system identification. Bayesian inference is a principled way to estimate parameters: exploiting Bayes theorem, an equational probabilistic model is inverted , yielding a probability distribution for the unknown parameters given the observations.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION The NIH Intramural Sequencing Center (NISC), established in 1997, is a multi disciplinary genomics facility that emphasizes the generation and analysis of DNA sequence. In addition to providing investigators at the NIH access to large scale DNA sequencing, NISC plays a major role in several efforts related to the Human Genome Project including a Comparative Vertebrate Sequencing Initiative, the ENCODE Project, and the Mammalian Gene Collection Program. NISC is also an active participant in the International Sequencing Consortium.
This contract incorporates one or more clauses by reference, with the same force and effect as if they were given in full text. Upon request, the Contracting Officer will make their full text available. The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible quoter whose quote conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered; and are determined to be fair and reasonable.
In the meantime Marya sought laboratory experience. Finding this type of work was not easy due to the Czarist ban, but in talking to her cousin Joseph Boguski she found help. He ran the Museum of Industry and Agriculture and asked one of his colleagues to tutor her.
