Production and soil effects of sorghum biofuel cropping systems in semiarid marginal regions
In order to meet the growing demands for food, fiber, and biofuels, land management decisions will require identification of lands most suitable for each crop. Biofuel production that occurs on lands otherwise constrained ...
Dynamic instability in the planetary boundary layer over the arid land
(Texas Tech University, 1988-12)
Classic baroclinic theory is one of the most significant findings of modern meteorology and has often been used to investigate the nature of wave-like disturbances introduced onto a mean flow field. The theory provides an ...
The effect of daily temperature variability on microbial and plant processes in a Chihuahuan Desert ecosystem
Worldwide, the daily temperature range of air (DTRair = Tmax – Tmin) has decreased by 0.07 °C per decade, with a 43% stronger decline for arid and semiarid regions. Although the daily temperature range of soil (DTRsoil) ...
Effects of biosolids and an inorganic mulch on soil-plant relationships in two Chihuahuan Desert grasslands
(Texas Tech University, 2000-12)
In-depth research is needed to understand the effects of biosolids (sewage sludge) application on plant growth in semiarid regions. The objectives of this research were to determine the effects of surface application of ...
