      Giant strata-bound magnesite deposits are absent in modern and most Phanerozoic sedimentary environments but occur predominantly in Precambrian strata. These deposits may have formed directly through precipitation of evolved ...
    • Geometrical Frustration and Static Correlations in a Simple Glass Former 

      Charbonneau, Benoit; Charbonneau, Patrick; Tarjus, Gilles (American Physical Society, 2012-01-18)
      We study the geometrical frustration scenario of glass formation for simple hard-sphere models. We find that the dual picture in terms of defects brings little insight and no theoretical simplification for the understanding ...
    • Geometrical frustration and static correlations in hard-sphere glass formers 

      Charbonneau, Benoit; Charbonneau, Patrick; Tarjus, Gilles (American Institute of Physics, 2013-03-28)
      We analytically and numerically characterize the structure of hard-sphere fluids in order to review various geometrical frustration scenarios of the glass transition. We find generalized polytetrahedral order to be correlated ...
    • Geophysical response to simulated methane migration in groundwater based on a controlled injection experiment in a sandy unconfined aquifer 

      Klazinga, Dylan R.; Steelman, Colby M.; Endres, Anthony L.; Parker, Beth L. (Elsevier, 2019-09)
      Geophysical methods have the capacity to detect and characterize gas-phase dynamics in groundwater. Suitable methods can be deployed at surface or within boreholes depending on the required depth of investigation, ...
    • Geriatric Medicine Leadership of Health Care Transformation: To Be or Not To Be? 

      Heckman, George A.; Molnar, Frank J.; Lee, Linda (Canadian Geriatrics Society, 2013-12-03)
      Geriatric Medicine is well-suited to inform and lead healthcare system redesign to address the needs of seniors with complex conditions. We posit that geriatricians must urgently consider how to “brand” Geriatric Medicine ...
    • Getting Started with Topic Modeling and MALLET 

      Graham, Shawn; Weingart, Scott; Milligan, Ian (The Editorial Board of the Programming Historian, 2012-09-02)
      In this lesson you will first learn what topic modeling is and why you might want to employ it in your research. You will then learn how to install and work with the MALLET natural language processing toolkit to do so. ...
    • Gibbs Energy Dynamic Yield Method (GEDYM): Predicting microbial growth yields under energy-limiting conditions 

      Smeaton, Christina M.; Van Cappellen, Philippe (Elsevier, 2018-11-15)
      Biomass-explicit biogeochemical models assign microbial growth yields (Y) using values measured in the laboratory or predicted using thermodynamics-based methods. However, Y values are rarely measured under the low energy ...
    • Gini-type measures of risk and variability: Gini shortfall, capital allocations, and heavy-tailed risks 

      Furman, Edward; Wang, Ruodo; Zitikis, Ricardas (Elsevier, 2017-10-01)
      We introduce and explore Gini-type measures of risk and variability, and develop the corresponding economic capital allocation rules. The new measures are coherent, additive for co-monotonic risks, convenient computationally, ...
    • Glassy States in Asymmetric Mixtures of Soft and Hard Colloids
