  • Stratum 14: A Site Analysis

    919 Words  | 4 Pages

    because in stratum 16 there is Early Pleonastic pottery then in stratum 14 there is Late Chiastic pottery. Stratum 14 has Late Chiastic pottery, indicating the site has a population again. However, the stratum is clearly a hole that cuts through strata 15, 16, 17, and 18. In the stratum, burnt animal bones, seeds, broken pottery, and broken groundstones are found, possibly indicating nomadic people travelling through. The C-14 dates on the seeds are 720 ± 30 BC and

  • Stratum 3

    1875 Words  | 8 Pages

    Stratum III Stratum III is ubiquitous at both Cienega Amarilla and Cottonwood Canyon exposures. It is typically ~3 m thick at Cienega Amarilla, but it is generally thinner at Cottonwood Canyon. At the Cienega Amarilla spring mound, stratum III consists primarily of spring travertine and tufa facies, whereas muddy paludal facies are predominant in the floodplain areas surrounding the spring mound. In contrast, stratum III at Cottonwood Canyon consists entirely of fluvial deposits. Stratum III was

    stratification and IPTW (Linden, 2014; Hong, 2012; Linden et al., 2010). It works by first stratifying the analytic sample into quantiles of the generalized propensity score, and secondly, generating a weight for each individual based on their corresponding stratum and treatment assignment (Linden, 2015; 2014). The stratification process is meant to reduce bias in the observed covariates used to create the propensity score (Rosenbaum & Rubin, 1984), whilst the weighting processes standardizes each treatment

  • Oman And The Middle East Stratum

    1183 Words  | 5 Pages

    Over the past thousand years, Oman has occupied a key strategic space in the Middle East stratum. With its vast mountain ranges, desert terrain, and steep cliffs along the coast, Oman over the years has proven to be very difficult to invade. This has allowed Oman to repel the majority of attacks from foreign militaries and maintain their sovereignty. The Southern and Eastern coastline of the country represents the key that makes Oman so important to the strength of the Middle East. Oman is a major

  • Stratum 3 In The Blue Mountain Site

    381 Words  | 2 Pages

    Stratum 3 in the Blue Mountain site lacks any evidence of settlement or subsistence; on the other hand, this could be evidence that the people who were there were nomadic rather than sedentary. The 4,534 debitage pieces and 234 cores suggest that it was a hunter-gatherer society and they used local obsidian which means that they could have had no contact with other people and likely did not travel very far. The majority of their tools were also made from the outer part of the cores. Stratum 2 is

    the law of superposition, with a start and end date of approximately 200 BCE – 1 CE or 100 BCE ± 100, stratum 800 is the oldest stratum represented. This date was formulated from the average of seven radiocarbon samples. Due to the lack of cultural material present in the stratum, it can be surmised that this stratum was uninhabited. The next oldest stratum using the law of superposition, is stratum 700, dates to 200 BCE- 1 CE to 43 CE. I

  • Skin: The Integumentary System

    A topical dosage form applied on the skin will have to cross the stratum corneum which would then allow the dosage form to traverse the subsequent layers of skin. The stratum corneum acts as a lipophilic barrier to xenobiotics thereby acting as body’s defence mechanism.3There exist three possible routes by which the drug molecule can permeate the skin ie. intracellular

    periods, based on Stratum 1’s TPQ date from a Pepsi can dated to 1969 AD, and the white glazed pottery characterized in the Modern period and the blue glazed pottery characterized in the Splenetic period strewn about strata 2, 3, 4 and 5. The site does not seem to have been occupied throughout the Late Frenetic period, because there is no evidence of purple glazed pottery throughout the relevant strata. However, the site was occupied by the earlier Middle and Early Frenetic periods. Stratum 6 has many

    on contracts. The five layers of skin are stratum basale, stratum spinosum, stratum granulosum, stratum lucidum, and stratum corneum. The stratum basale consists of basal cells. The dermal papillae, which increases the strength between the epidermis and dermis, are found there. All keratinocytes are produced here, as
