Vadose zone characterization using ground penetrating radar groundwaves.
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a non-invasive geophysical technique that can be used to estimate the soil water content quickly and with high resolution over large areas. This research explores the potential of GPR ...
Discounting of Delayed and Probabilistic Rewards in Gambling and Non-Gambling College Students.
Holt, Green, & Myerson (2003) found college-aged gamblers and non-gamblers to be indistinguishable in terms of delay discounting. This suggests that, with positive outcomes, gamblers and non-gamblers are similar in terms ...
