A Compact and Efficient Steam Methane Reformer for Hydrogen Production
A small-scale steam-methane reforming system for localized, distributed production of hydrogen offers improved performance and lower cost by integrating the following technologies developed at the University of Houston; ...
DEVELOPING A HOPE SCALE WITH A STORY- BASED APPROACH
The purpose of this study was to develop a tacit scale for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to measure their level of hope accurately by relieving social desirability concerns and testing pressure. Story Hope Scale was ...
HISTOGRAM MATCHING SEISMIC WAVELET PHASE ESTIMATION
The seismic wavelet phase can be estimated by histogram matching between seismic inverted reflectivity and well log reflectivity. Histogram matching is based on the convolutional model and assumes the wavelet is constant. ...
A FIT THEORY OF ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND TWO EMPIRICAL EXAMINATIONS
In a three manuscript dissertation, I propose a Meso-model of organizational leadership based on fit theory and then test key propositions of the model concerning exchange relationships between leaders and followers. The ...
Understanding Parental Choice of A Charter School
The overall condition of education within the state of Texas, as well as the nation as a whole, depends greatly upon the efforts and contributions offered by students’ parents. In fact, the overall success of a student ...
Bed and suspended sediments as source and transport mechanisms for polychlorinated biphenyls in the Houston Ship Channel Estuary System
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) are pollutants of global concern. Though their industrial histories differ, they both represent large classes of chemicals ...
Neutrophil Interstitial Migration
Purpose: Molecular events regulating neutrophil extravasation have been extensively researched and described. However, relatively little is known about extravascular interstitial migration of neutrophils and then, much of ...
Electrochemical Synthesis of Magnetic Nanostructures for Mutifunctionalization
Compared to the traditional physical vapor deposition or chemical synthesis methods, electrochemical deposition has the advantages of low cost, high yield, low processing temperature and is easy to scale-up. In this study, ...
TOWARDS RETINA REGENERATION: THE EPIGENETIC BASIS OF NEURONAL AND AXON GUIDANCE GENE REGULATION
Degenerative disorders, such as glaucoma are among the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. With these disorders affecting a larger fraction of the population yearly, the need for regenerative retina and ...
