Geomorphological Changes in Young Soils with Sparse Vegetation: Mathematical Modeling and Numerical Simulation

The Geoscience Research Institute partially funded a recently published article modeling erosion rates in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California near Yosemite. The algorithms simulated weathering of complex topography at each point and time step in air, ground surface, and soil. The numerical model included the effects of air velocity, rainfall, temperature variation, heat and water infiltration into soils, soil topography and porosity fraction, and freezing and thawing of water in granitic rock.

The Syntactic-Pragmatic Function of Genesis 1:1-2 in the Creation Narrative

A textlinguistic analysis—focusing especially on word order, forms of predication, clause types, and their functions on both clause and text levels—suggests that Gen 1:1-2 is an antecedent information which provides the narrative base for the six-day creation. V. 1 reports a previous act of creation and v. 2 describes the state of the earth as it was originally created, thereby setting the narrative stage for the six-day creation (vv. 3-31). Article published on Valley View University Journal of Theology 3 (2014): 67 - 85.

Genesis 1:1-2:3 as a Historical Narrative Text Type

The ‘genre’ of Genesis 1 has long been debated, with approaches centering largely on traditional form criticism. From a textlinguistic perspective—especially examining such elements as clause types, word order, grounding, lexical repetition, prose particles, and linear structuring—this study argues that the first pericope of the Hebrew Bible is better read as a historical narrative text type in its own right. Article originally published on Valley View University Journal of Theology 1 (2011): 18-35.
