### Crustal Density Variation of the Eastern U.S.

Henglei Zhang, Dhananjay Ravat & Anthony R. Lowry
EarthScope’s USArray Transportable Array (TA) has shortcomings for the purpose of interpreting geologic features of wavelengths less than the 70 km TA station spacing, but these can be overcome by using higher spatial resolution gravity data. In this study, we exploit USArray receiver functions to reduce non-uniqueness in the interpretation of gravity anomalies. We model gravity anomalies from previously-derived density variations of sedimentary basins, crustal Vp/Vs variation, Moho variation, and upper mantle density variation derived...

### Water Distribution System Research Database

The ASCE Task Committee on Research Databases for Water Distribution Systems was formed in 2013 for the purpose of developing a database for use by the water distribution system community in developing and testing new algorithms for network design, analysis, and operations. This effort has led to the identification and collection of data files and supporting narratives for over 40 different distribution systems. Members of the task committee volunteered to collect and submit data on...

### Bacterially Expressed dsRNA Causes Gene Silencing in EAB

Lynne Rieske-Kinney
RNA interference (RNAi) is a naturally occurring, biological process in which RNA molecules inhibit gene expression or translation by neutralizing target mRNA molecules. Recent advances in our understanding of the RNAi mechanism have allowed its development as an emerging tool to protect against insect pests. The major challenge for efficient pest management using RNAi as a molecular bio-pesticide in the field is development of convenient and efficient methods for production, and practical delivery of stable...
