Mercury contamination of wildlife populations has been documented widely in recent years as biomonitoring has become an important tool for assessing environmental contamination. Avian eggs provide an ideal assay material for Hg biomonitoring, particularly when the collection of eggs is simplified by using cavity-nesting species that nest in easily monitored nest boxes. However. studies are needed that address the dynamics of how Hg is distributed within eggs, and how Hg is deposited naturally within clutches laid by a single female and among clutches laid by different females occupying the same contaminated environment. We collected 138 eggs from 13 complete clutches of box-nesting wood ducks (Aix sponsa) during...

Coal is the one fossil energy source that can play a substantial role as a transitional energy source as one moves from the petroleum and natural gas based economic system to the future economic system based on nondepletable or renewable energy systems. For coal to remain competitive with other sources of energy in the industrialized countries of the world, continuing technological improvements in all aspects of coal extraction have been necessary. Coal has many important uses, but most significantly in electricity generation, steel and cement manufacture, and industrial process heating. Despite the long-term importance of oil and gas use, coal will remain a major pillar of the world’s energy supply. Developing...

This dataset presents information about mineral commodity exporting ports relating to the mineral industries of Latin America and the Caribbean. Port data records were originally derived from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's World Port Index, with additional research conducted by the Material Flow Analysis section of the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Minerals Information Center (NMIC) to add specific mineral-related data. These ports represent known exporting ports over a time period of 2010-2016 and relevant data fields include the mineral commodities exported, the form of the exported mineral commodity, the port owner, the estimated annual tonnage, destination countries, as well as sources...
