Digging the dirt

Penny Hirsch
2016 Nature Microbiology  
The first part of the book describes the genesis of soil -the geological, climatic and biological factors that drive its formation.  ...  Unfortunately, the production lets the book down somewhat -the pictures are of poor quality and are not reproduced in colour which I feel is essential for illustrating, at the very least, the soil profile  ...

Dig the Dirt [chapter]

John Leslie King
IFIP International Federation for Information Processing  
In the span of a few generations, "reality" for most families shifted from life-with-dirt to life-without-dirt.  ...  Laurie Anderson's aspiration to put some dirt into virtual reality is superficially a plea to make the virtual a little more like the real by incorporating an essential element of the real-dirt.  ...

Digging up the Dirt on Galaxies with Herschel

Loretta Dunne
2014 Proceedings of The Life Cycle of Dust in the Universe: Observations, Theory, and Laboratory Experiments — PoS(LCDU2013)   unpublished
Herschel's unique strength was that it covered the peak of the dust thermal spectrum, from nearby galaxies out to those at high redshifts.  ...  Opening a new observing window in the sub-millimetre, Herschel imaged cool dust in galaxies with higher angular resolution than previously possible and with unprecedented sensitivity.  ...  The problem is that the UV slope is sensitive to the age of the stellar populations as well as the dust attenuation (which in turn depends on dust properties and geometry).  ...

Digging the dirt on density: a study of medium density housing in Christchurch's Living Three zone [article]

Susan Jane Lilley, University Of Canterbury
2008
The principle purpose of the zone is the development of medium-density residential accommodation, however greater residential density is relatively new to Christchurch where the potential for expansion  ...  Since the 1987 Brundtland Report, the development of urban areas has been considered a key determinant in achieving 'sustainability'.  ...  It includes the scope of the topic and the aims of this research. The study area is presented and placed in context. The Chapter concludes with an outline of the form that this thesis will take.  ...

The French began on the top and hoisted out the dirt, bucket by bucket, whereas the workers are now be- ginning at the center and digging down and hauling the dirt away on minimum grades.  ...  The slides on the Culebra cut, which caused some apprehension, were simply a matter of more dirt to dig, and getting back to the rock,—doing a little more digging than ‘ was originally scheduled.  ...

The Temporality of Dirt: Queer Materiality in Jarman's Modern Nature

Jim Ellis
2014 English studies in Canada  
But saying that a gardener digs into time, rather than into soil, can also lead to the question that I want to reflect on here, of the temporality of dirt.  ...  One recurring thought, which is at first glance unremarkable, is Jarman's claim that "the gardener digs in another time" (30).  ...  Freeman's metaphor of mining, of digging in the dirt, is especially apropos with respect to Jarman.  ...

Then he continued on to the surface losing most of the dirt on the way; turning around, he dug down again, throwing the already loosened dirt to the surface with his hind feet.  ...  When a load of dirt accumulated behind him, he turned, by means of a sideward somersault, and pushed the dirt to the end of the horizontal tunnel with his nose.  ...

The rat digs rapidly with its front feet, sometimes kicking away some of the dirt with its hind legs, until a pit is made that will hold the contents of the cheek pouches.  ...  The pouches are then emptied into the pit and the dirt quickly scraped over and patted down.  ...
