Professor Canale publishes in Aquaculture and Lake and Reservoir Management

Professor Emeritus Ray Canale recently published two papers, one in Aquaculture and the other in Lake and Reservoir Management.| Short Read

Aquaculture is an international journal for the exploration, improvement and management of all freshwater and marine food resources. Canale’s recent paper from September 2015 is titled, “A bioenergetic approach to manage production and control phosphorus discharges from a salmonid hatchery.”

This paper describes the development and application of models designed to quantitatively analyze the issues created when phosphorus from fish hatcheries drains into downstream oligotrophic lakes. The researchers looked at the Platte River State Fish Hatchery in Michigan as an example. To read the paper, please download the PDF.

Lake and Reservoir Management (LRM) functions as a record of advances in lake management and a resource for lake managers, researchers and policy makers. Canale’s recent paper from July 2015 is titled, “An analysis of sampling programs to evaluate compliance with numerical standards: total phosphorus in Platte Lake, MI.”

This paper uses statistical methods to evaluate whether Platte Lake complies with the numerical standard for total phosphorus. To read the paper, please download the PDF.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
