Richard Cowling Taylor; founder of Appalachian coal geology

, : Richard Cowling Taylor; founder of Appalachian coal geology. International Journal of Coal Geology 90-91

Richard Cowling Taylor (1789-1851) was a British-born American geologist, generally specializing in the coal geology of the Pennsylvanian system and in the Triassic coals of Pennsylvania and Virginia. While he long clung to older, disproved age assignments and made some mistakes in structural geology, therefore missing coal-bearing synclines beyond the immediate study area, he did pioneer the use of cross sections of coal basins and made advancements in the uniform expression of geologic maps. His work in the western end of Pennsylvania's Southern Anthracite field, Broad Top coalfield, and the North-central coalfields and in Virginia's Richmond Basin provided valuable insights into the exploration and development of those areas in the 1830's and 1840's.

The severity of allergic diseases may be modified by vitamin D. However, the immune pathways modulated by the active form of vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) [1,25(OH)(2)D(3)], are yet to be fully elucidated. In this study, naturally occurrin...

The blue spots in the scale-skin of the Japanese porgy are observed to be composed of an assemblage of small Iridophores which are located in the connective tissue under the epithelial layer, frequently together with chromatophores. In each iridop...

The effect of potential chemical constraints on the performance of two relatively new soil P testing methods, anion exchange membrane (AEM) and diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT), were evaluated. Exposures to ranges of anion (Cl(-), NO(3)(-),...

Zhou, Y.; Liu, J.; Wang, J.; Wang, Y.; Sun, P., 2010: Measurement of electrophoretic mobility of cardiomyocytes. The electrophoretic mobility (EPM) of rat cardiomyocytes with or without the treatment of neuraminidase was studied by cell electrophoresis. The EPM was found to change over a range from 0 to 8.67 microm s(-1)/V cm(-1), depending on ionic strength...
