US Coast Guard differential GPS network  

SciTech Connect

In order to aid navigation and to prevent disasters such as oil spills, collisions, and wrecks of vessels and aircraft, the US Coast Guard is charged with establishing, maintaining, and operating electronic aids to navigation. In a technological advance developed and operated by the Department of Defense, the global positioning system (GPS) provides all-weather global coverage, 24 hours/day at unprecedented accuracies. GPS provides standard positioning service (SPS) and precise positioning service (PPS). By applying differential techniques to GPS, navigational accuracies of better than 10 meters can be achieved. For the first time, an all-weather system is possible to meet all the marine navigator's needs including harbor and harbor approach navigation. This should revolutionize navigation safety and efficiency, surveying operations, search and rescue operations, and underwater mine disposal efficiency and safety.

Introduction to the U.S. Coast Guard Differential GPS Program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Background information is given explaining the need to broadcast differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) corrections to mariners. Results from a DGPS experiment carried out by the US Coast Guard (USCG) over the last three years are then discussed. In this experiment, differential corrections were modulated onto the signal from an existing maritime radiobeacon. The experiment proved that DGPS could provide the additional accuracy required for harbor and harbor approach navigation. As a result of this experiment the USCG is implementing a program to provide DGPS coverage to US harbors and harbor approaches. The authors discuss how this program will be implemented and the improvements to GPS accuracy and integrity that it will provide to mariners.

Littoral processes: US Coast Guard Station, Fort Point, San Francisco  

SciTech Connect

The US Coast Guard Station, Fort Point is located three-quarters of a nautical mile southeast of the Golden Gate Strait, the entrance to San Francisco Bay. The existing storm wave conditions at Fort Point Station pier make it extremely dangerous for the SAR crews to get on and off the Motor Life Boats at times requiring the vessels to be moored at the San Francisco Yacht Harbor about 1.5 miles east of the Fort Point Station. To mitigate these harsh working conditions the US Coast Guard is considering the feasibility of constructing suitable all-weather moorings for the three Motor Life Boats at the Fort Point Station to enable unimpeded SAR operations, to provide safe working conditions for Coast Guard small boat crews, and to improve small boat maintenance conditions at Fort Point Station. The purpose of this report is to identify, analyze and evaluate physical environmental factors that could affect all-weather moorings siting, configuration and entrance location, as well as potential post construction alterations to littoral conditions and processes. This report includes a description of the site, description of pertinent littoral processes, evaluation of how these processes could affect construction of all-weather moorings, and discussion of design considerations, as well as mitigation measures to minimize potential adverse effects to the physical environment. 19 references, 27 figures, 26 tables.

Intelligent scheduling support for the US Coast Guard  

SciTech Connect

This paper will discuss a joint effort by the U.S. Coast Guard Research & Development Center, Idaho National Engineering Laboratory and Brunel University to provide the necessary tools to increase the human scheduler`s capability to handle the scheduling process more efficiently and effectively. Automating the scheduling process required a system that could think independently of the scheduler, that is, the systems needed its own control mechanism and knowledge base. Further, automated schedule generation became a design requirement and sophisticated algorithms were formulated to solve a complex combinatorial problem. In short, the resulting design can be viewed as a hybrid knowledge-based mathematical programming application system. This document contains an overview of the integrated system, a discrete optimization model for scheduling, and schedule diagnosis and analysis.

Mortality among shipyard Coast Guard workers: a retrospective cohort study  

PubMed Central

Background The mortality experience of 4702 (4413 men and 289 women) civilian workers in a US Coast Guard shipyard was evaluated. Methods All workers employed at the shipyard between 1 January 1950 and 31 December 1964 were included in the study and were followed through 31 December 2001 for vital status. Detailed shipyard and lifetime work histories found in the shipyard personnel records and job descriptions were evaluated. Workers were classified as likely exposed to any potential hazardous substances. In addition, 20 job groups were created on likely similar exposures. Standardised mortality ratios (SMRs) were calculated based on the general population of the state and adjusted for age, calendar period, sex and race. Results The follow?up was successful for 93.3% of the workers. Among all men employed in the shipyard, there was an excess of mortality from all causes of death (SMR 1.08; 95% CI 1.04 to 1.12), respiratory cancers (SMR 1.29; 95% CI 1.15 to 1.43), lung cancer (SMR 1.26; 95% CI 1.12 to 1.41), mesothelioma (SMR 5.07; 95% CI 1.85 to 11.03) and emphysema (SMR 1.44; 95% CI 1.01 to 1.99) and a decrease for cardiovascular diseases (OR 0.95; 95% CI 0.90 to 1.00), vascular lesions of the central nervous system (SMR 0.80; 95% CI 0.67 to 0.96), cirrhosis of the liver (SMR 0.38; 95% CI 0.25 to 0.57) and external causes of death (SMR 0.55; 95% CI 0.44 to 0.68). A similar pattern was observed for the men classified as exposed. No increasing trend of mortality was found with duration of employment in the shipyard, with the exception of mesothelioma (SMRs of 4.23 and 6.27 for <10 years and ?10 years, respectively). In occupations with at least three cases and with an SMR of ?1.3, the authors observed a significantly elevated mortality for lung cancer among machinists (SMR 1.60; 95% CI 1.08 to 2.29) and shipfitters, welders and cutters (SMR 1.34; 95% CI 1.07 to 1.65) and for oral and nasopharyngeal cancers among wood workers (SMR 6.20; 95% CI 2.27 to 13.50). Conclusion Employment in this Coast Guard shipyard revealed a small but significant excess mortality from all causes, lung cancer and mesothelioma, most of which is probably related to asbestos exposure.

The discovery of oil and gas along the Alaskan coast has led to development and exploration on shore; offshore drilling on the continental shelf is certain to increase rapidly in the near future. The Coast Guard has the legislated responsibility for insuring effective oil spill response in these waters which may be ice-infested during all or part of the year.

The Coast Guard's VHF-FM national distress system: Analysis for recapitalization  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Twenty years ago the U.S. Coast Guard established the National Distress System (NDS) of VHF-FM remote-controlled transceivers to provide nationwide maritime distress coverage and Coast Guard C(sup 2) communications. The NDS was designed to provide radio coverage along the coasts, the inland waterways, and the Great Lakes. The current NDS equipment is reaching the end of its useful life and the new requirements placed upon the system have mandated its replacement. In this thesis the author first details the C(sup 2) structure of the Coast Guard and identifies its major missions, and then relates history of the NDS. An examination of the NDS' current configuration is performed, the requirements are identified, and applicable technology is explored. The author concludes that present technology and commercially available equipment is available to solve the present and anticipated requirements placed upon the NDS. The author provides a model of the proposed system and presents an implementation schedule for replacement of the NDS.

U.S. Coast Guard: overview of operational narcotic detection program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Multiple Coast Guard commands incorporate a variety of advanced narcotic detection technologies into their normal Law Enforcement routine. Planning calls for new commands to expand their narcotic detection capability via the introduction of additional advanced narcotic detection systems before 1997. The successful integration of new technology is the result of the synergistic relationship between the Research and Development Center and operational units during technology development. This paper will give an overview of the Coast Guard methodology emphasizing the requirements and related issues of law enforcement in the maritime environment. Topics to be discussed include: An overview of the initial research incorporating both operational commands and the Research and Development Center; How the instruments were initially implemented in the field; How the instruments are currently used; How law enforcement officers are currently trained to be equipment operators; Lessons learned from different case studies; and research currently being conducted to support the field law enforcement officer.

Coast Guard exposure to gasoline, MTBE, and benzene vapors during inspection of tank barges.  

PubMed

A field study was conducted June through August 1996 in an attempt to quantify short-term exposure levels to Coast Guard personnel performing routine inspection activities aboard commercial tank barges carrying gasoline. Transfer and fleeting operations were monitored in the ports of Pittsburgh, Pa., Huntington, W.Va., Baton Rouge, La., and Galveston, Tex. A total of 43 personal and 68 area samples were analyzed for benzene and total hydrocarbons as gasoline ("gasoline"). Results can be summarized as follows: Personal exposure to benzene gave 15-min time-weighted-average (TWA) results ranging from <0.10 to 0.50 ppm. Area benzene levels ranged from <0.04 to 170 ppm. Personal monitoring for gasoline revealed a range of <2.0 to 590 mg/m3 with a GM of 23 mg/m3. Area sample results for gasoline ranged from 1.7 to 90,000 mg/m3. Twelve personal samples were collected for methyl-tert butyl ether (MTBE). Only two of these were above the limit of detection and had 15-min time-weighted averages of 22 ppm and 1.3 ppm. Eighteen MTBE area samples ranged in value from <3.0 to 38 ppm. Although none of the personal samples met or exceeded proposed or established short-term exposure standards, many of the area sampling results indicated that a significant risk of acute exposure exists in the vicinity of valves, pressure lines, and connections. This includes anticipated sources such as pressure vent valves as well as unexpected sources resulting from structural deficiencies onboard the vessels. These results further emphasize the value of safe work practices and proper vessel maintenance in controlling exposure to harmful chemicals. PMID:11192221

A secondary objective of the study is to provide USCG management with a methodologically and theoretically sound aid to effective policy decision-making. The MOEs constructed in this study are specific to the Marine Inspection and Boarding Program, but the methodology of the study is based on sound theoretical principles that are probably applicable to a range of USCG activities. Hence the methodology applied equally to other important USCG programs and can be similarly used to measure their effectiveness and as an aid to decision-making.

The MOEs constructed in this study are specific to the Marine Inspection and Boarding Program, but the methodology of the study is based on sound theoretical principles that are probably applicable to a range of USCG activities. Hence the methodology applies equally to other important USCG programs and can be similarly used to measure their effectiveness and as an aid to decision-making.

OREOS: a new EO-IR modeling and simulation tool for U.S. Coast Guard search and rescue applications  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Georgia Tech has developed a new modeling and simulation tool that predicts both radar and electro-optical infrared (EO-IR) lateral range curves (LRCs) and sweep widths (SWs) under the Optimization of Radar and Electro-Optical Sensors (OREOS) program for US Coast Guard Search and Rescue (SAR) applications. In a search scenario when the location of the lost or overdue craft is unknown, the Coast Guard will conduct searches based upon standard procedure, personnel expertise, operational experience, and models. One metric for search planning is the sweep width, or integrated area under a LRC. Because a searching craft is equipped with radar and EO-IR sensor suites, the Coast Guard is interested in accurate predictions of sweep width for the particular search scenario. Here, we will discuss the physical models that make up the EO-IR portion of the OREOS code. First, Georgia Tech SIGnature (GTSIG) generates thermal signatures of search targets based upon the thermal and optical properties of the target and the environment; a renderer then calculates target contrast. Sensor information, atmospheric transmission, and the calculated target contrasts are input into NVESD models to generate probability of detection (PD) vs. slant range data. These PD vs. range values are then converted into LRCs by taking into account a continuous look search from a moving platform; sweep widths are then calculated. The OREOS tool differs from previous methods in that physical models are used to predict the LRCs and sweep widths at every step in the process, whereas heuristic methods were previously employed to generate final predictions.

Selection and testing of a glove combination for use with the U. S. Coast Guard's chemical response suit  

SciTech Connect

A study was sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard to select a glove system for its chemical response suit that could meet or exceed the chemical resistance performance of the suit's base material. Three different protective glove combinations were evaluated for their permeation resistance to 28 chemicals. The glove combinations were based on three materials--Viton, butyl rubber, and Silvershield. The test chemicals were selected for one of two reasons. First, no single glove material could be identified to be resistant against the chemical of interest, or second, no permeation test data were available for judging glove material performance for the specific chemical. As can be expected, the permeation resistance of the glove combinations greatly exceeded that of the single glove material components. The butyl rubber/Silvershield glove combination was found to provide permeation resistance greater than 1 hr for all but one of the chemicals tested.

Seakeeping and vibration tests of the Coast Guard 110 foot surface effect ship SEA BIRD class (WSES)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Seakeeping and vertical acceleration tests were performed on the U.S. Coast Guard 110 ft Surface Effect Ships USCGC SHEARWATER and USCGC SEA HAWK. Roll, pitch and heave motions were recorded and later analyzed. All motions were averaged by highest one tenth and highest one third single amplitudes. Vertical accelerations were further analyzed using ISO standards to determine the human response and fatigue limits relative to high frequency (1.8 HZ) heave motions encountered. Tests were conducted in 2.5 to 4 foot seas at speeds of 16 to 28 knots. The objective of this technical evaluation was to quantify the ride quality of the Coast Guard 110 ft SES. This 110-foot surface effect ship is a high-performance air-cushion-assisted craft, designed for on-cushion speeds of 30 knots in calm water and 25 knots in sea state 3. The ship rides on a drag-reducing cushion of air contained by catamaran-type sidehulls and flexible bow and stern seals. When cruising on cushion, the center portion of the hull is clear of the water and supported by the air cushion, thereby reducing the wetted surface area and decreasing the resistance and enabling higher speed. The ship is also capable of off-cushion operations at low speeds in all sea states. The SHEARWATER was able to maintain 28 knots in 2-foot seas in December 1982; however, recent operations such as the SEA HAWK tests in November 1983 and August 1984 show lower maximum speeds than designed (18-23 knots) are attained.

Overview of surface-water resources at the U.S. Coast Guard Support Center Kodiak, Alaska, 1987-89  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Hydrologic data at a U.S. Coast Guard Support Center on Kodiak Island, Alaska, were collected from 1987 though 1989 to determine hydrologic conditions and if contamination of soils, ground water, or surface water has occurred. This report summarizes the surface-water-discharge data collected during the study and estimates peak, average, and low-flow values for Buskin River near its mouth. Water-discharge measurements were made at least once at 48 sites on streams in or near the Center. Discharges were measured in the Buskin River near its mouth five times during 1987-89 and ranged from 27 to 367 cubic feet per second. Tributaries of Buskin River below Buskin Lake that had discharges greater than 1 cubic foot per second include Bear Creek, Alder Creek, Magazine Creek, Devils Creek and an outlet from Lake Louise. Streams having flows generally greater than 0.1 cubic foot per second but less than 1 cubic foot per second include an unnamed tributary to Buskin River, an unnamed tributary to Lake Catherine and a drainage channel at Kodiak airport. Most other streams flowing into Buskin River, and all streams on Nyman Peninsula, usually had little or no flow except during periods of rainfall or snowmelt. During a low-flow period in February 1989, discharge measurements in Buskin River and its tributaries indicate that three reaches of Buskin River below Buskin Lake lost water to the ground-water system, whereas two reaches gained water; the net gain in streamflow attributed to ground-water inflow at a location near the mouth was estimated to be 2.2 cubic feet per second. The 100-year peak flow for Buskin River near its mouth was estimated to be 4,460 cubic feet per second. Average discharge was estimated to be 125 cubic feet per second and the 7-day 10-year low flow was estimated to be 5.8 cubic feet per second.

US Coast Guard/US Maritime Administration Cooperative Research on marine engine exhaust emissions. Marine exhaust emissions measurement of the M/V Kings Pointer. Final report  

SciTech Connect

This report presents the results of emissions testing conducted on board the M/V KINGS POINTER in May 1995. The objective of this testing was to conduct baseline instrumentation, monitoring, and evaluation of the engine exhaust emissions as part of joint U.S. Coast Guard/Maritime Administration cooperative research on controlling air pollution from ships. The U.S. Coast Guard`s interest in emissions testing arises from both its desire to meet all federal and state air quality regulations and the fact that in the future it may be called upon to enforce regulations in the marine environment. The U.S. Maritime Administration`s interest in this and related research is based on its efforts to assure that its vessels and those of the privately-owned U.S. Flag Merchant Marine can comply with future air pollution control requirements. Underway tests were conducted of the 224-foot M/V KINGS POINTER in which two of its four diesel-electric generators were sampled for NO, NO2, CO, and SO2 in the exhaust. Additional data on fuel flow and power output were collected at five speeds over the full range of vessel operating ranges. NOx values were calculated and compared with standards proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Results showed that average NOx values were 9.4 g/kWh which is slightly below the 10.9 g/kWh upper limit or cap that is being proposed by the IMO for a diesel engine with a rated speed of 1200 RPM. Additional conclusions and recommendations on the technique of portable emissions monitoring instrumentation are made.

Final report on testing of ACONF technology for the US Coast Guard National Distress Systems : a study for the DOE Energy Storage Systems Program.  

SciTech Connect

This report documents the results of a six month test program of an Alternative Configuration (ACONF) power management system design for a typical United States Coast Guard (USCG) National Distress System (NDS) site. The USCG/USDOE funded work was performed at Sandia National Laboratories to evaluate the effect of a Sandia developed battery management technology known as ACONF on the performance of energy storage systems at NDS sites. This report demonstrates the savings of propane gas, and the improvement of battery performance when utilizing the new ACONF designs. The fuel savings and battery performance improvements resulting from ACONF use would be applicable to all current NDS sites in the field. The inherent savings realized when using the ACONF battery management design was found to be significant when compared to battery replacement and propane refueling at the remote NDS sites.

Subtidal eelgrass/macroalgae surveys for the proposed breakwaters at the US Coast Guard Station at Ediz Hook, Washington, March 1993  

SciTech Connect

In 1993, the US Coast Guard proposed to construct two breakwaters and a debris boom to protect its existing pier and moored vessels inside Ediz Hook in Port Angeles Harbor, Washington. To assist the US Army Corps of Engineers -- Seattle District in determining the potential environmental impacts of the proposed breakwaters, Battelle/Marine Sciences Laboratory performed subtidal SCUBA surveys as specified in the Washington Department of Fisheries intermediate eelgrass/macroalgae habitat survey guidelines. The objectives of the subtidal surveys were to (1) quantify the shoot densities of eelgrass; (2) provide percent cover estimates for non-eelgrass macroalgae species; (3) develop a site map indicating the qualitative distribution of eelgrass/macroalgae species, substrate characterization, approximate depth contours, and the approximate location of the proposed project features; and (4) document the time and date of the surveys, turbidity/visibility, presence of invertebrate/vertebrate species, and anecdotal observations pertinent to habitat characterization of the project site. A total of 14 dives along 12 transects (T1--T12) were successfully completed between March 15 and March 17, 1993. Eelgrass was observed on all of the transects except T7 and T8 at the western debris barrier and T12 along the waterward margin of the existing T-pier. The vicinity of the proposed east breakwater had the highest eelgrass shoot densities (up to 89 shoots/m{sup 2}) observed by the divers. Macroalgae and invertebrate species diversity were also highest at the east breakwater site. The low eelgrass densities observed at the west debris barrier site (0 to 14 shoots/m{sup 2}) can be attributed mostly to the lack of suitable substrate. The existing layer of wood debris armoring the bottom at the west project site currently limits, and in the areas of heaviest deposition probably precludes, the growth of eelgrass. As was expected, no eelgrass was observed at the south breakwater site.

Long-term performance monitoring for a permeable reactive barrier at the U.S. Coast Guard Support Center, Elizabeth City, North Carolina.  

PubMed

A continuous hanging iron wall was installed in June, 1996, at the U. S. Coast Guard (USCG) Support Center near Elizabeth City, NC, United States, to treat overlapping plumes of chromate and chlorinated solvent compounds. The wall was emplaced using a continuous trenching machine whereby native soil and aquifer sediment was removed and the iron simultaneously emplaced in one continuous excavation and fill operation. To date, there have been seven rounds (November 1996, March 1997, June 1997, September 1997, December 1997, March 1998, and June 1998) of performance monitoring of the wall. At this time, this is the only full-scale continuous 'hanging' wall installed as a permeable reactive barrier to remediate both chlorinated solvent compounds and chromate in groundwater. Performance monitoring entails the following: sampling of 10-5 cm PVC compliance wells and 15 multi-level samplers for the following constituents: TCE, cis-dichloroethylene (c-DCE), vinyl chloride, ethane, ethene, acetylene, methane, major anions, metals, Cr(VI), Fe(II), total sulfides, dissolved H(2), Eh, pH, dissolved oxygen, specific conductance, alkalinity, and turbidity. Electrical conductivity profiles have been conducted using a Geoprobe to verify emplacement of the continuous wall as designed and to locate upgradient and downgradient wall interfaces for coring purposes. Coring has been conducted in November, 1996, in June and September, 1997, and March, 1998, to evaluate the rate of corrosion on the iron surfaces, precipitate buildup (particularly at the upgradient interface), and permeability changes due to wall emplacement. In addition to several continuous vertical cores, angled cores through the 0.6-m thick wall have been collected to capture upgradient and downgradient wall interfaces along approximate horizontal flow paths for mineralogic analyses.

Temperature and Abscisic Acid Can Be Used to Regulate Survival, Growth, and Differentiation of Cultured Guard Cell Protoplasts of Tree Tobacco.  

PubMed Central

Guard cell protoplasts isolated from leaves of Nicotiana glauca (Graham) were cultured. Conditions were sought that would maximize survival and maintain cells in their differentiated state. Temperature was an important determinant of survival, growth, and differentiation. As temperatures were increased from 24 to 32[deg]C, survival for 1 week in culture increased from approximately 20% to approximately 80% of cells used to initiate cultures. At all of these temperatures, approximately 90% of surviving cells divided to form callus tissue. "Footprint" areas of cells cultured for 1 week at 32[deg]C increased almost 30-fold. Cells cultured for 1 week at 34 to 40[deg]C also survived in high percentages (approximately 80%), but they retained a morphology similar to that of guard cells and they did not divide. Footprint areas of cells cultured for 1 week at 38[deg]C increased 6-fold. Cells cultured at 36 to 40[deg]C in media containing 0.1 or 1.0 [mu]M abscisic acid survived in high percentages and did not divide. At 38[deg]C their footprint areas did not increase, but cells so cultured increased in diameter when treated with fusicoccin. Morphologies and electrophoretic profiles of total sodium dodecyl sulfate-extractable proteins suggest that cells cultured at 38[deg]C in media containing abscisic acid remain differentiated. L-[alpha]-(2-Aminoethoxyvinyl)-glycine reduced survival to <1% at 26 or 32[deg]C but had no effect at 38[deg]C. At lower temperatures, cell growth and survival appear to be ethylene dependent.

Human mate guarding.  

PubMed

Long-term committed mating is a fundamental strategy in the human repertoire. Successful enactment of this strategy requires solving two related adaptive problems--fending off potential mate poachers and preventing a mates from defecting. Mate guarding adaptations evolved to solve these persistent problems. Those who failed in mate guarding risked suffering substantial reproductive costs ranging from genetic cuckoldry to reputational damage to the entire loss of a mate. Because the precise nature of the adaptive problems confronted differed historically for the sexes, men and women evolved corresponding differences in the underlying psychology of mate guarding. Men's mate guarding, relative to that of women's, is strongly triggered as a consequence of being mated to young and physically attractive women, being confronted by interested rivals who have superior economic resources or prospects, and having a mate who displays signs of sexual involvement with a rival. Women's mate guarding, relative to that of men's, is triggered as a consequence of being mated to men high in income and status striving, rivals who are more physically attractive, and having a partner who shows signs of emotional involvement with another woman. Behavioral output of mate guarding adaptations range from vigilance to violence. PMID:12496732

A p-n junction is formed with a thin layer of heavily doped semiconductor material disposed on a lightly doped, physically thick base material. An annular groove cuts through the thin layer and into the base for a short distance, dividing the thin layer into a peripheral guard ring that encircles the central region. Noise signal currents are shunted through the guard ring, leaving the central region free from such currents. (AEC)

When the guards guard themselves: Undercover tactics turned inward  

Microsoft Academic Search

The perennial issue of who guards the guards? has taken a new turn in the U.S. with the increased use of covert means to ferret out corruption among police, prison guards, prosecutors, defense attorneys and judges. This specialized use is located within the recent general expansion of undercover policing in the United States. Theoretical issues involved in controlling the controllers,

We introduce a notion of guarded recursive (g.r.) datatype constructors, generalizing the notion of recursive datatypes in functional programming languages such as ML and Haskell. We address both theoretical and practical issues resulted from this generalization. On one hand, we design a type system to formalize the notion of g.r. datatype constructors and then prove the soundness of the type

Building an FTP guard  

SciTech Connect

Classified designs usually include lesser classified (including unclassified) components. An engineer working on such a design needs access to the various sub-designs at lower classification levels. For simplicity, the problem is presented with only two levels: high and low. If the low-classification component designs are stored in the high network, they become inaccessible to persons working on a low network. In order to keep the networks separate, the component designs may be duplicated in all networks, resulting in a synchronization problem. Alternatively, they may be stored in the low network and brought into the high network when needed. The latter solution results in the use of sneaker-net (copying the files from the low system to a tape and carrying the tape to a high system) or a file transfer guard. This paper shows how an FTP Guard was constructed and implemented without degrading the security of the underlying B3 platform. The paper then shows how the guard can be extended to an FTP proxy server or an HTTP proxy server. The extension is accomplished by allowing the high-side user to select among items that already exist on the low-side. No high-side data can be directly compromised by the extension, but a mechanism must be developed to handle the low-bandwidth covert channel that would be introduced by the application.

Application of adaptive noise cancellation to Coast Guard voice communications  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A variety of approaches to the digital filtering of voice signals corrupted by background engine noise are presented. These approaches include the standard Least Mean Square adaptive noise cancellation algorithm, an optimum fixed weight filter, a special type of notch filter and frequency domain adaptive noise cancellation. The filters have been implemented both off-line using FORTRAN programs on an LSI-11/2 microcomputer, and in real time using thee Texas Instruments TMS 320 microprocessor and in PDP-11 assembly language using an LSI-11/2. Frequency domain adaptive filtering was seen to be superior to the LMS time domain algorithm because its much greater computational efficiency allowed the analysis of much longer filters. A digital filter that exploits the engine noise by having a notch at each harmonic was seen to be more effective than any of the adaptive filters. The digital filter equations are derived, starting with a particular periodic reference input. This adaptive filter is shown to be, in reality, an infinite impulse response, time invariant filter.

Successful Army National Guard units: A guard perspective  

SciTech Connect

This project sought to identify factors contributing to a healthy Army National Guard (ARNG) unit. Its results were intended to contribute to a computerized forecasting model under development at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The model, the ARNG Regional Recruiting Potential Model (RRPM), forecasts locations of successful new or modified Guard units. The study was expected to enhance the understanding of what constituents a healthy Guard unit. A Delphi approach was used to define criteria for healthy Guard units and to elicit rankings of those criteria. Two sets of telephone interviews were conducted with a sample of 102 individuals-two battalion-level administrative officers, or their equivalents, in each state in Washington, DC. During these telephone calls, the phrase unit supportability'' was used to express the notion of a healthy unit. The first set of interviews obtained background information and respondents' ideas of the criteria that lead to unit supportability and to a lack of supportability. The data were analyzed to develop a list of ten criteria for unit supportability. In the second interview, the same respondents were asked to rank those criteria in order of importance.

Spatial differentiation of coral species related to wave energy along the Changqi coast, Hainan island, southern China  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The regularities of the composition and the spatial distribution of hermatypic coral community is an essential aspect of coral reef ecosystem studies. The relationship between the structure and spatial distribution of hermatypic coral communities and hydrodynamics and wave energy, along the Changqi coast, are investigated. Differences in abundance of hermatypic coral species, at different depths, were found; these were related mainly to the varying influence of waves. Under average weather conditions, the wave energy was dissipated regularly at a depth of 2 m. Here, the coral cover was the lowest of all of the depths. However, corals growing in that area is adapted to the conditions; therefore, wave damage was low. The areas at 5-6 m water depth were influenced by waves primarily during episodes of extreme weather, with high wave energy resulting in severe damage of the corals. The coral cover in this depth was the highest observed, but the corals were generally smaller and had a short growth period. These findings indicate that the strong waves damaged particularly the weak corals, such as Acropora sp. and Montipora sp., during these short term events. Nevertheless, upon the return of normal conditions, coral communities can grow back and reproduce asexually in the damaged areas. As a result of this regrowth, Acropora sp. and Montipora sp. were highly abundant in areas at a depth of 5 m. It appears that knowledge on the physical setting, i.e. the relationship between wave properties and the spatial distribution patterns of corals, is essential for understanding coral reef succession rules; likewise, protection and recovery mechanisms of the coral reef ecosystem.

Tubular actin filaments in tobacco guard cells  

PubMed Central

The dynamic remodeling of actin filaments in guard cells functions in stomatal movement regulation. In our previous study, we found that the stochastic dynamics of guard cell actin filaments play a role in chloroplast movement during stomatal movement. In our present study, we further found that tubular actin filaments were present in tobacco guard cells that express GFP-mouse talin; approximately 2.3 tubular structures per cell with a diameter and height in the range of 13 m and 35 m, respectively. Most of the tubular structures were found to be localized in the cytoplasm near the inner walls of the guard cells. Moreover, the tubular actin filaments altered their localization slowly in the guard cells of static stoma, but showed obvious remodeling, such as breakdown and re-formation, in moving guard cells. Tubular actin filaments were further found to be colocalized with the chloroplasts in guard cells, but their roles in stomatal movement regulation requires further investigation.

Fluorescence Properties of Guard Cell Chloroplasts  

PubMed Central

The presence of chloroplasts in guard cells from leaf epidermis, coleoptile, flowers, and albino portions of variegated leaves was established by incident fluorescence microscopy, thus confirming the notion that guard cell chloroplasts are remarkably conserved. Room temperature emission spectra from a few chloroplasts in a single guard cell of Vicia faba showed one major peak at around 683 nanometers. Low-temperature (77 K) emission spectra from peels of albino portions of Chlorophytum comosum leaves and from mesophyll chloroplasts of green parts of the same leaves showed major peaks at around 687 and 733 nanometers, peaks usually attributed to photosystem II and photosystem I pigment systems, respectively. Spectra of peels of V. faba leaves showed similar peaks. However, fluorescence microscopy revealed that the Vicia peels, as well as those from Allium cepa and Tulipa sp., were contaminated with non-guard cell chloroplasts which were practically undetectable under bright field illumination. These observations pose restrictions on the use of epidermal peels as a source of isolated guard cell chloroplasts. Studies on the 3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea-sensitive variable fluorescence kinetics of uncontaminated epidermal peels of C. comosum indicated that guard cell chloroplasts operate a normal, photosystem II-dependent, linear electron transport. The above properties in combination with their reported inability to fix CO2 photosynthetically may render the guard cell chloroplasts optimally suited to supply the reducing and high-energy phosphate equivalents needed to sustain active ion transport during stomatal opening in daylight.

Microtubules of guard cells are light sensitive.  

PubMed

Guard cells of stomata are characterized by ordered bundles of microtubules radiating from the ventral side toward the dorsal side of the cylindrical cell. It was suggested that microtubules play a role in directing the radial arrangement of the cellulose micro-fibrils of guard cells. However, the role of microtubules in daily cycles of opening and closing of stomata is not clear. The organization of microtubules in guard cells of Commelina communis leaves was studied by analysis of three-dimensional immunofluorescent images. It was found that while guard cell microtubules in the epidermis of leaves incubated in the light were organized in parallel, straight and dense bundles, in the dark they were less straight and oriented randomly near the stomatal pore. The effect of blue and red light on the organization of guard cell microtubules resembled the effects of white light and dark respectively. When stomata were induced to open in the dark with fusicoccin, microtubules remained in the dark configuration. Furthermore, when incubated in the light, guard cell microtubules were more resistant to oryzalin. Similarly, microtubules of Arabidopsis guard cells, expressing green fluorescent protein-tubulin alpha 6, were disorganized in the dark, but were organized in parallel arrays in the presence of white light. The dynamics of microtubule rearrangement upon transfer of intact leaves from dark to light was followed in single stomata, showing that an arrangement of microtubules typical for light conditions was obtained after 1 h in the light. Our data suggest that microtubule organization in guard cells is responsive to light signals. PMID:15169939

Increasing separation between reference and roaming receivers dilutes this improvement, largely because ionospheric and tropospheric effects differ between their two locations. We correct differential corrections for this difference and determine the improvement with this "atmospheric" DGPS method at roaming receiver positions that are separated from a Coast Guard reference receiver at Annapolis, Maryland, by 44, 67, and 228 km. For ionospheric corrections we use our Raytrace-Ionospheric conductivity and electron density-Bent-Gallagher ionospheric propagation model with driving parameters obtained from two-frequency data of surveyed reference GPS receivers. For tropospheric corrections we use the Hopfield model and weather station data for surface temperature, pressure, and relative humidity. Internet delivery of atmospheric differential corrections is used to avoid blockage or range cutoff of radio transmissions. Some comparisons are made with Wide Area Augmentation System GPS receiver performance.

OnGuard, a computational platform for quantitative kinetic modeling of guard cell physiology.  

PubMed

Stomatal guard cells play a key role in gas exchange for photosynthesis while minimizing transpirational water loss from plants by opening and closing the stomatal pore. Foliar gas exchange has long been incorporated into mathematical models, several of which are robust enough to recapitulate transpirational characteristics at the whole-plant and community levels. Few models of stomata have been developed from the bottom up, however, and none are sufficiently generalized to be widely applicable in predicting stomatal behavior at a cellular level. We describe here the construction of computational models for the guard cell, building on the wealth of biophysical and kinetic knowledge available for guard cell transport, signaling, and homeostasis. The OnGuard software was constructed with the HoTSig library to incorporate explicitly all of the fundamental properties for transporters at the plasma membrane and tonoplast, the salient features of osmolite metabolism, and the major controls of cytosolic-free Ca? concentration and pH. The library engenders a structured approach to tier and interrelate computational elements, and the OnGuard software allows ready access to parameters and equations 'on the fly' while enabling the network of components within each model to interact computationally. We show that an OnGuard model readily achieves stability in a set of physiologically sensible baseline or Reference States; we also show the robustness of these Reference States in adjusting to changes in environmental parameters and the activities of major groups of transporters both at the tonoplast and plasma membrane. The following article addresses the predictive power of the OnGuard model to generate unexpected and counterintuitive outputs. PMID:22635116

Improved catalyst loading reduces guard reactor fouling  

SciTech Connect

A new catalyst-loading strategy reduced the fouling tendency of the gas oil hydrotreater guard reactors at Syncrude Canada Ltd.'s heavy-crude upgrading facilities. Studies conducted on the guard reactors were designed to determine the thermal stability of the coker gas oil and to understand the properties of the fouling material. Small particles (described as fines) were present in the upper section of the removed catalyst bed. This part of the bed was then replaced in one of three ways. One way was to replace the catalyst with used, nonregenerated catalyst, and cover the catalyst with nonactive support balls, 10 and 13 mm in diameter. The second way was to fill the entire space with nonactive support balls, and the third way was to fill with regenerated oxidic catalyst combined with semiactive support balls (unsulfided).

The conceptual approach to quantitative modeling of guard cells  

PubMed Central

Much of the 70% of global water usage associated with agriculture passes through stomatal pores of plant leaves. The guard cells, which regulate these pores, thus have a profound influence on photosynthetic carbon assimilation and water use efficiency of plants. We recently demonstrated how quantitative mathematical modeling of guard cells with the OnGuard modeling software yields detail sufficient to guide phenotypic and mutational analysis. This advance represents an all-important step toward applications in directing reverse-engineering of guard cell function for improved water use efficiency and carbon assimilation. OnGuard is nonetheless challenging for those unfamiliar with a modelers way of thinking. In practice, each model construct represents a hypothesis under test, to be discarded, validated or refined by comparisons between model predictions and experimental results. The few guidelines set out here summarize the standard and logical starting points for users of the OnGuard software.

Comparison of soccer shin guards in preventing tibia fracture.  

PubMed

The goal of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a number of shin guards in protecting against tibia fracture in soccer players. A secondary purpose was to determine the relationship between the material and structural differences in shin guard design and the protection provided. Twenty-three commercially available shin guards were tested on a model leg containing a synthetic tibia that had been calibrated against human cadaver specimens. Each guard was categorized into one of four material types: plastic (N = 9), fiberglass (N = 6), compressed air (N = 4), and Kevlar (N = 4). The maximum combined force at the ends of the tibia, the principal strain on the posterior side of the tibia, and the contact time of the impact were measured using a drop track impact simulation. Shin guards provided significant protection from tibia fracture at all drop heights. The average guard reduced force by 11% to 17% and strain by 45% to 51% compared with the unguarded leg. At the higher drop heights, material composition and structural characteristics of the shin guards showed significant differences in protective abilities. These findings indicate that all shin guards provide some measure of protection against tibia fracture, although the level of protection may vary significantly among the different guards.

LG-GUARD for missile defense and offence  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

LG-GUARD employs a hierarchy of multi-resolution games (LG hypergame) to represent various areas of operations at different levels of detail. LG-GUARD includes a full implementation of advanced fire control by dynamic preemptive control of sensor-to-shooter and shooter-to-target pairing. However, the greatest advantage of LG-GUARD is a fast planning and re-planning based on the Linguistic Geometry (LG) approach. This ability allows LG-GUARD to generate COA aiming to achieve the commander"s intent for the entire operation, vs. an ability to shoot as many targets as possible at each snapshot of a battle. LG-GUARD operates in two modes. The Planning Mode (long range planning) enabled LG-GUARD to automatically select best types, quantities, and locations for defensive assets from the entire area permitted for the operations of the Blue side to achieve a given probability of success (with as little total opportunity cost as possible). After selection and turning to the Engagement Mode (short range planning), LG-GUARD generates the best courses of action for all sides of the most probable operation (which involves defensive assets selected in the Planning Mode). The capabilities of LG-GUARD are shown in this paper by describing two kinds of scenarios, those executable now and those to be executable in the near future.

Shoplifter faces 27 years in prison for biting security guard.

A Pennsylvania man was sentenced to 13.5 to 27 years in prison following a biting incident after he was caught shoplifting at a Wal-Mart. Eric Rivera Perez was convicted of aggravated assault for attempting to inflict serious bodily harm on a security guard by "knowingly exposing her to an infectious disease". Perez bit the guard who detained him and told the guard repeatedly that he had AIDS. A blood test later confirmed his HIV status. The prosecution argued that the guard did not have to show that she had a serious injury, only that Perez had placed her at risk. The prosecutor and defense attorneys had earlier agreed to a plea bargain with a sentence of no more than 27 months, but the judge rejected the plea, citing the seriousness of the offense and the defendant's long criminal record.

This is surprising in light of the fact that this equipment is often made of materials that are reported to cause allergies, and that friction and moisture from the use of these shin guards during the sport would seem to predispose soccer players to the development of an allergic response. We present eight patients that presented for evaluation of dermatitis under their shin guards--some of which had allergy to their shin guards and some of which were diagnosed as having an irritant reaction.

Wrist injuries in guarded versus unguarded first time snowboarders.  

PubMed

In 1999, a study was done examining the injury risk and pattern in first time snowboarders versus first time skiers. Although these rates were similar, snowboarders sustained a higher percentage of injuries to the upper extremity, particularly wrist sprains and fractures. As an extension of this previous study, the protective value during snowboarding of an off-the-shelf wrist guard originally designed for inline skating was tested. Two thousand three hundred fifty-five first time snowboarders were evaluated at one northeastern ski resort. Five hundred fifty-one snowboarders wore wrist guards and a control group of more than 1800 snowboarders did not wear wrist guards. Forty wrist injuries were sustained in the control group (2.2%), compared with no injuries (0%) in the snowboarders who wore wrist guards. Importantly, there was no increase in more proximal or distal upper extremity injuries in the group of snowboarders who wore wrist guards. PMID:12671490

Precopulatory mate guarding in the hermit crab Pagurus middendorffii (Brandt) (Decapoda: Paguridae): effects of population parameters on male guarding duration  

Microsoft Academic Search

The effects of sex ratio, competitor size, and the encounter rate with females on the duration of male precopulatory guarding were tested in the hermit crab Pagurus middendorffii (Brandt, 1851) to examine how guarding duration varies in relation to social factors. Size and owner advantages in malemale contest competition were also examined. Larger and owner males were stronger competitors than

Central power generation system for U. S. Coast Guard polar icebreakers  

SciTech Connect

One of the more important decisions in overall ship design is the selection of the propulsion plant type, a consideration of particular significance for a polar class icebreaker. Propeller interactions with huge fragments of broken ice place added emphasis on the drive train's ability to operate and survive in an environment where rescue is difficult, dangerous and therefore costly, if not impossible. This paper describes the application of a new type opf diesel electric machinery plant which is similar to these installed by other icebreaking nations of the world and which includes several features to correct certain troublesome problems experienced by their designs. The machinery plant presented improves on, but does not strain or surpass the current state of the art. The basic cutter configuration and certain auxiliary systems of interest are also described.

Predictors of postdeployment alcohol use disorders in National Guard soldiers deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom.  

PubMed

Alcohol use in the military is a significant problem. The goal of this study was to examine the associations between personality, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, and postdeployment alcohol use disorders (AUDs) among a group of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) deployed National Guard soldiers, with a focus on differentiating predeployment and postdeployment onset AUDs. Participants were 348 National Guard soldiers deployed to Iraq from March 2006 to July 2007 drawn from the Readiness and Resilience in National Guard Soldiers (RINGS) study. Participants completed self-report measures one month before deployment and 3 to 6 months postdeployment; current and lifetime history of AUDs were assessed 6 to 12 months postdeployment, using the Structured Clinical Interview for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed. text rev.; DSM-IV; American Psychiatric Association, 2000). Overall, 13% of the panel was diagnosed with a current AUD. Of those who met criteria for a current AUD, 38% had an AUD that developed following return from deployment (new onset AUD). The development of new onset AUDs was uniquely predicted by higher levels of PTSD symptom severity, higher levels of avoidance-specific PTSD symptoms, and lower levels of positive emotionality. AUDs with onset prior to deployment were predicted by higher levels of negative emotionality and disconstraint. Results of this study suggest that combat deployed soldiers with current AUDs are a heterogeneous group and point to the influence of combat-related PTSD symptoms in the development of AUDs following deployment.

Physiology and Regulation of Calcium Channels in Stomatal Guard Cells  

SciTech Connect

Stomatal pores in the epidermis of leaves regulate the diffusion of CO2 into leaves for photosynthetic carbon fixation and control water loss of plants during drought periods. Guard cells sense CO2, water status, light and other environmental conditions to regulate stomatal apertures for optimization of CO2 intake and plant growth under drought stress. The cytosolic second messenger calcium contributes to stomatal movements by transducing signals and regulating ion channels in guard cells. Studies suggest that both plasma membrane Ca2+ influx channels and vacuolar/organellar Ca2+ release channels contribute to ABA-induced Ca2+ elevations in guard cells. Recent research in the P.I.'s laboratory has led to identification of a novel major cation-selective Ca2+-permeable influx channel (Ica) in the plasma membrane of Arabidopsis guard cells. These advances will allow detailed characterization of Ica plasma membrane Ca2+ influx channels in guard cells. The long term goal of this research project is to gain a first detailed characterization of these novel plasma membrane Ca2+-permeable channel currents in Arabidopsis guard cells. The proposed research will investigate the hypothesis that Ica represents an important Ca2+ influx pathway for ABA and CO2 signal transduction in Arabidopsis guard cells. These studies will lead to elucidation of key signal transduction mechanisms by which plants balance CO2 influx into leaves and transpirational water loss and may contribute to future strategies for manipulating gas exchange for improved growth of crop plants and for biomass production.

Cytochemical and cytofluorometric evidence for guard cell photosystems  

SciTech Connect

Evidence for photosynthetic linear electron transport in guard cells was obtained with two sensitive methods of high spacial resolution. Light-dependent diaminobenzidine oxidation (an indicator of PSI) and DCMU-sensitive, light-dependent thiocarbamyl nitroblue tetrazolium reduction (an indicator of PSII) were observed in guard cell plastids of Hordeum vulgare L. cv Himalaya using electron microscopic cytochemical procedures. DCMU-sensitive Chl a fluorescence induction (an indicator of PSII) was detected in individual guard cell pairs of Vicia faba L. cv Longpod using an ultramicrofluorometer. At least for these species, we conclude these results are proof for the presence of PSII in guard cell chloroplasts, which until now has been somewhat controversial. 31 references, 2 figures.

Membrane trafficking in guard cells during stomatal movement  

PubMed Central

Pairs of guard cells form small pores called stoma in the epidermis, and the reversible swelling and shrinking of these guard cells regulate the stomatal apertures. The well-documented changes in guard cell volume have been associated with their vacuolar structures. To investigate the contribution of the guard cell vacuoles to stomatal movement, the dynamics of these vacuolar structures were recently monitored during stomatal movement in vacuolar-membrane visualized Arabidopsis plants. Calculation of the vacuolar volume and surface area after reconstruction of three-dimensional images revealed a decrease in the vacuolar volume but an increase in the vacuolar surface area upon stomatal closure. These results implied the possible acceleration of membrane trafficking to the vacuole upon stomatal closure and membrane recycling from the vacuole to the plasma membrane upon stomatal opening. To clarify and quantify membrane trafficking during stomatal movement, we describe in this addendum our development of an improved image processing system.

Stomatal pores in leaves enable plants to regulate the exchange of gases with their environment. Variations of the pore aperture are mediated by controlled changes of potassium salt concentrations in the surrounding guard cells. The voltage-dependent gating of K+-selective channels in the plasma membrane (plasmalemma) of cell-wall-free guard cells (protoplasts) was studied at the molecular level in order to investigate

(Selected aspects of guard-cell biochemistry)  

SciTech Connect

Synopsis of progress on current grant. The studies were proposed for five years. The proposal was funded for three years, and I am pleased to report that the proposed experiments have been conducted, in essence, although some protocols were altered as the work unfolded. We found that Abscisic acid (ABA) accumulates in guard cells before it does in other leaf cells during stress imposition. This is an important result that eliminates a long-standing objection to unequivocal assignment of a role to ABA in stress-related decrease in stomatal conductance. We also followed the kinetics of ABA following relief of stress. In a published manuscript, we report values for protoplasts. The results did not permit a conclusion as to the cellular source of ABA. We did not detect physiological isoforms and therefore did not search for phosphorylation or aggregation states. We have been successful in measuring plant cytoplasmic malate concentration, though not in Crassula, which presented intractable technical difficulties. These results lead me to the heretical general conclusion that malate inhibition is not the major single factor that regulates phosphoenolpyruvate. 48 refs., 8 figs.

Effects of Cations and Abscisic Acid on Chlorophyll a Fluorescence in Guard Cells of Vicia faba1  

PubMed Central

The effects of cations and abscisic acid on chloroplast activity in guard cells of Vicia faba were investigated by analysis of the transient of chlorophyll a fluorescence. When epidermal strips containing guard cells as the only living cells were incubated in water and illuminated with strong light, chlorophyll a fluorescence rose rapidly to a high intensity and then declined slowly to a stationary level. The rate of this decline was enhanced by K+ or Na+, and the effect of these cations was greater when added with phosphate than with chloride as the anion. Ca2+ suppressed the enhancement by Na+ and, to a lesser extent, that by K+. Abscisic acid also suppressed the enhancement by K+ and Na+. Since the fluorescence decline reflects the increase of intrathylakoid H+ concentration necessary for photophosphorylation, the acceleration of the decline by K+ (or Na+ in the absence of Ca2+) implicates chloroplast activity in ion accumulation by guard cells in the light. The differential effects of phosphate and chloride suggest that chloroplast activity may be involved in malate formation in guard cells in the light. Images

Chlorophyll a Fluorescence Transients in Mesophyll and Guard Cells 1  

PubMed Central

Chlorophyll fluorescence transients from mesophyll and guard cell chloroplasts of variegated leaves from Chlorophytum comosum were compared using high resolution fluorescence spectroscopy. Like their mesophyll counterparts, guard cell chloroplasts showed the OPS fluorescence transient indicating the operation of the linear electron transport and the possible generation of NADPH in these organelles. They also showed a slow fluorescence yield decrease, equivalent to the MT transition in mesophyll, suggesting the formation of the high energy state and photophosphorylation. Unlike the mesophyll chloroplasts, the fluorescence from guard cell chloroplasts lacked the increment of the SM transition, indicating that the two types of chloroplasts have some metabolic differences. The presence of CO2 (supplied as bicarbonate, pH 6.7) specifically inhibited the MT-equivalent transition while its absence accelerated it. These observations constitute the first specific evidence of a guard cell chloroplast response to CO2. Control of photosynthetic ATP levels in the guard cell cytoplasm by CO2 may provide a mechanism regulating the availability of high energy equivalents at the guard cell plasmalemma, thus affecting stomatal opening.

Guarded capacitance probes for measuring particle concentration and flow  

DOEpatents

Guarded capacitance probe structures are constructed with guard electrodes surrounding one or more sensor electrodes and ground electrodes or grounded surfaces surrounding the guard electrodes. In a one sensor embodiment, the probe utilizes an apertured sensor electrode and the guard electrode both surrounds the sensor electrode and fills the aperture. This embodiment is particularly useful for measuring particle concentration in a fluid suspension contained within a vessel or pipe. The portion of the guard electrode within the aperture of the sensor electrode prevents electric field lines from emanating from the sensor electrode into the fluid suspension and toward infinity. A two sensor embodiment of the probe is useful for measuring flow velocities of fluid suspensions through cross correlation of the outputs generated by each sensor. The relative dimensions of the guard and sensor electrodes are selected to provide the most accurate measurements by confining the electric lines emanating from the sensor electrode or electrodes and terminating on the surrounding grounded surfaces to a small measurement volume of the fluid suspension near the vessel or pipe wall. 14 figs.

West Coast Chlorophyll Bloom  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) on board the Orbview 2 satellite captured the phytoplankton bloom October 6, 2002 . Red represents high concentration of chlorophyll, follow by orange, yellow and green. Land and cloud portions of the image are presented in natural color. SeaWiFS monitors ocean plant life by measuring the amount of chlorophyll in the ocean. Large phytoplankton blooms tend to coincide with natural phenomena that drive that nutrient-rich water to the surface. The process is called upwelling. Winds coming off principal land masses push surface layers of water away from the shore. Into the resulting wind-driven void deeper water underneath the surface layers rushes in toward the coast, bringing with it nutrients for life to bloom. This upwelling fuel the growth of marine phytoplankton which, along with larger seaweeds, nourishes the incredible diversity of creatures found along the northern and central California coast.

Light Quality and Osmoregulation in Vicia Guard Cells 1  

PubMed Central

Osmoregulation in opening stomata of epidermal peels from Vicia faba L. leaves was investigated under a variety of experimental conditions. The K+ content of stomatal guard cells and the starch content of guard cell chloroplasts were examined with cobaltinitrite and iodine-potassium iodide stains, respectively; stomatal apertures were measured microscopically. Red light (50 micromoles per square meter per second) irradiation caused a net increase of 3.1 micrometers in aperture and a decrease of ?0.4 megapascals in guard cell osmotic potential over a 5 hour incubation, but histochemical observations showed no increase in guard cell K+ content or starch degradation in guard cell chloroplasts. At 10 micromoles per square meter per second, blue light caused a net 6.8 micrometer increase in aperture over 5 hours and there was a substantial decrease in starch content of chloroplasts but no increase in guard cell K+ content. At 25 micromoles per square meter per second of blue light, apertures increased faster (net gain of 5.7 micrometers after 1 hour) and starch content decreased. About 80% of guard cells had a higher K+ content after 1 hour of incubation but that fraction decreased to 10% after 5 hours. In the absence of KCl in the incubation medium, stomata opened slowly in response to 25 micomoles per square meter per second of blue light, without any K+ gain or starch loss. In dual beam experiments, stomata irradiated with 50 micomoles per square meter per second of red light for 3 hours opened without detectable starch loss or K+ gain; addition of 25 micomoles per square meter per second of blue light caused a further net gain of 4.4 micometers in aperture accompanied by substantial K+ uptake and starch loss. Comparison of K+ content in guard cells of opened stomata in epidermal peels with those induced to open in leaf discs showed a substantially higher K+ content in the intact tissue than in isolated peels. These results are not consistent with K+ (and its counterions) as the universal osmoticum in guard cells of open stomata under all conditions; rather, the data point to sugars arising from photosynthesis and from starch degradation as additional osmotica. Biochemical confirmation of these findings would indicate that osmoregulation during stomatal opening is the result of three key metabolic processes: ion transport, photosynthesis, and sugar metabolism.

OnGuard, a Computational Platform for Quantitative Kinetic Modeling of Guard Cell Physiology1[W][OA  

PubMed Central

Stomatal guard cells play a key role in gas exchange for photosynthesis while minimizing transpirational water loss from plants by opening and closing the stomatal pore. Foliar gas exchange has long been incorporated into mathematical models, several of which are robust enough to recapitulate transpirational characteristics at the whole-plant and community levels. Few models of stomata have been developed from the bottom up, however, and none are sufficiently generalized to be widely applicable in predicting stomatal behavior at a cellular level. We describe here the construction of computational models for the guard cell, building on the wealth of biophysical and kinetic knowledge available for guard cell transport, signaling, and homeostasis. The OnGuard software was constructed with the HoTSig library to incorporate explicitly all of the fundamental properties for transporters at the plasma membrane and tonoplast, the salient features of osmolite metabolism, and the major controls of cytosolic-free Ca2+ concentration and pH. The library engenders a structured approach to tier and interrelate computational elements, and the OnGuard software allows ready access to parameters and equations on the fly while enabling the network of components within each model to interact computationally. We show that an OnGuard model readily achieves stability in a set of physiologically sensible baseline or Reference States; we also show the robustness of these Reference States in adjusting to changes in environmental parameters and the activities of major groups of transporters both at the tonoplast and plasma membrane. The following article addresses the predictive power of the OnGuard model to generate unexpected and counterintuitive outputs.

Probing the Extrasolar Planet Diversity with SEE-COAST  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

SEE-COAST is a space mission concept designed for the study of physical and chemical characteristics of exoplanets. The science driver of SEE-COAST is the exploration of the planetary diversity, which has been unveiled in the past 15 years. Both spectral and polarimetric properties of the parent starlight reflected by the planets are analyzed to better constraint the atmosphere of planets. The SEE-COAST concept relies on a series of high contrast imaging techniques like coronagraphy, differential imaging and possibly wavefront control. The science objectives as well as the wavelength range (0.4-1.25 microns) are complementary to the future near-infrared ground-based coronagraphic instruments and to the exoplanet imaging capability of the JWST. We propose SEE-COAST as a relatively secure step to prepare the more ambitious characterization mission of Earth-like planets. The strategy of the mission is presented and the instrumental concept is briefly introduced.

ILC TARGET WHEEL RIM FRAGMENT/GUARD PLATE IMPACT ANALYSIS  

SciTech Connect

A positron source component is needed for the International Linear Collider Project. The leading design concept for this source is a rotating titanium alloy wheel whose spokes rotate through an intense localized magnetic field. The system is composed of an electric motor, flexible motor/drive-shaft coupling, stainless steel drive-shaft, two Plumber's Block tapered roller bearings, a titanium alloy target wheel, and electromagnet. Surrounding the target wheel and magnet is a steel frame with steel guarding plates intended to contain shrapnel in case of catastrophic wheel failure. Figure 1 is a layout of this system (guard plates not shown for clarity). This report documents the FEA analyses that were performed at LLNL to help determine, on a preliminary basis, the required guard plate thickness for three potential plate steels.

Coasts in Crisis  

SciTech Connect

Coastal areas are staggering under an onslaught of human activity. We are presently in the process of destroying 70 percent of the world`s 600,000 square kilometers of coral reefs, an ecosystem containing some 200,000 different species and rivaling tropical rain forests in biodiversity. A combination of pollution, habitat destruction, and gross overfishing has led to the collapse of major fisheries and paved the way for malnutrition and disease in regions where people fish for subsistence. Globally, little is being done to manage the crisis of our coasts. Management strategies, if they exist at all, often deal with economic development along a wafer-thin strip of coastal land. Resource degradation is ignored, and watershed management is mostly rhetoric. Although some 55 countries have drawn up coastal management plans, only a handful have been properly implemented. Coasts must be managed in an integrated manner that takes into account the full range of human activities. Initiating this process is costly, time-consuming, and difficult. Yet we have more than three decades of accumulated experience to draw on.

Guarded commands, nondeterminacy and formal derivation of programs  

Microsoft Academic Search

So-called guarded commands are introduced as a building block for alternative and repetitive constructs that allow nondeterministic program components for which at least the activity evoked, but possibly even the final state, is not necessarily uniquely determined by the initial state. For the formal derivation of programs expressed in terms of these constructs, a calculus will be be shown.

Regulation of stomatal opening by the guard cell expansin AtEXPA1  

PubMed Central

Stomatal movement is strictly regulated by various intracellular and extracellular factors in response environmental signals. In our recent study, we found that an Arabidopsis guard cell expressed expansin, AtEXPA1, regulates stomatal opening by altering the structure of the guard cell wall. This addendum proposes a mechanism by which guard cell expansins regulate stomatal movement.

Texas inmate who spat on guard loses habeas appeal.  

PubMed

The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected Curtis Weeks' petition for a writ of habeas corpus after concluding that Weeks could have killed a prison guard by infecting him with saliva. Weeks, a prisoner with HIV, will spend the rest of his life behind bars for spitting in the prison guard's face in June 1988. However, the prosecution never established that virus was present in Weeks' saliva, and the guard tested negative for HIV antibodies. The appeals court decided to uphold the jury's decision to believe the witnesses who testified that HIV could be transmitted through saliva. Although the appeals court found that the defense presented enough scientific evidence to show that HIV cannot be transmitted by saliva, the court decided that as long as some evidence existed for the jury to draw its conclusions, they could not disturb the jury's assessment. The defense also contended that the trial judge gave improper instructions to the jury in how to evaluate whether an act tends to but fails to effect the commission of murder. The appeals court found the judge's instructions to be flawed, but not so much as to harm Weeks' due process rights. PMID:11362693

Stimulus-Induced Oscillations in Guard Cell Cytosolic Free Calcium.  

PubMed Central

Ca2+ is implicated as a second messenger in the response of stomata to a range of stimuli. However, the mechanism by which stimulus-induced increases in guard cell cytosolic free Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) are transduced into different physiological responses remains to be explained. Oscillations in [Ca2+]i may provide one way in which this can occur. We used photometric and imaging techniques to examine this hypothesis in guard cells of Commelina communis. External Ca2+ ([Ca2+]e), which causes an increase in [Ca2+]i, was used as a closing stimulus. The total increase in [Ca2+]i was directly related to the concentration of [Ca2+]e, both of which correlated closely with the degree of stomatal closure. Increases were oscillatory in nature, with the pattern of the oscillations dependent on the concentration of [Ca2+]e. At 0.1 mM, [Ca2+]e induced symmetrical oscillations. In contrast, 1.0 mM [Ca2+]e induced asymmetric oscillations. Oscillations were stimulus dependent and modulated by changing [Ca2+]e. Experiments using Ca2+ channel blockers and Mn2+-quenching studies suggested a role for Ca2+ influx during the oscillatory behavior without excluding the possible involvement of Ca2+ release from intracellular stores. These data suggest a mechanism for encoding the information required to distinguish between a number of different Ca2+-mobilizing stimuli in guard cells, using stimulus-specific patterns of oscillations in [Ca2+]i.

Andrew spares Florida Coast  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

When geologists heard of the intensity of Hurricane Andrew, which struck the Florida coast on August 25 and then moved on to southern Louisiana, they were expecting the same kinds of coastal damage that Hurricane Hugo brought to the Caribbean and Carolina shores in 1989. Both storms were category 4 hurricanes, having winds of 131-155 mph and surges of 13-18 feet. However, the coastal damage never materialized, leaving geologists to analyze the factors that lessened the impact of the storm. For minimum coastal damage, you couldn't have designed a better storm, said Orrin Pilkey, director of the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines (PSDS) in Durham, N.C. This was due in part to the nature of the storm itself and where it hit land, and in part to the regional geology, said Rob Thieler of PSDS. Despite the huge amounts of damage to buildings, there was virtually no evidence of coastal process destruction, he said.

Comparative study on foraminifera of east and west coast of India.

The oceanographic conditions of west and east coasts of India provide variations in ecological conditions. Hence, the present study was undertaken to assess the geographic distribution and diversity of foraminifera (Protista) of west and east Coasts of India to gain insights in to ecological conditions that effect their distribution. The intertidal sediment samples, collected for a period of two years from October 2004 to September 2006 were analysed for foraminiferal diversity and sediment characteristics by standard methods. Relatively high densities (west coast--156 to 19,400 g(-1), east coast--37-214 g(-1)) and diversities were observed at all the sites of the West (74 species) compared to the east coast (57 species). Thirty three species were common to both the coasts. Forty one and 24 species were found to be unique to west and east coast, respectively. Foraminifera of west and east coasts form distinct clusters as revealed by Bray-Curtis cluster analysis, indicating distinctly different foraminiferal assemblages. The geographical and oceanographic conditions thus seem to influence a differential diversity of forams. PMID:23734457

Effects of fusicoccin on ion fluxes in guard cells.  

PubMed

The pharmacology has been further investigated of the two transport systems mediating potassium (rubidium) (K(+)(Rb(+))) release from the guard cell vacuole, responsible, respectively, for the resting efflux and abscisic acid (ABA)-induced transient stimulation of efflux, and for the transient stimulation induced by hypotonic treatment. Here, the effects of fusicoccin and of butyrate-induced cytoplasmic acidification on (86)Rb efflux were measured in isolated guard cells of Commelina communis. Fusicoccin (10 microM) inhibited the resting efflux at the tonoplast and the ABA-induced transient, but had no effect on the hypotonic transient. All three processes were inhibited by cytoplasmic acidification. Fusicoccin did not inhibit efflux at the plasmalemma. As the hypotonic response is inhibited by cytoplasmic acidification but not by fusicoccin, the effect of fusicoccin on the resting efflux and ABA response must be direct, and not the result of fusicoccin-induced cytoplasmic acidification. The collected tonoplast efflux properties resemble those of TPC1 (two-pore channel) rather than TPK1 (two-pore K channel). The flux and TPC1 are both activated by Ca(2+), but inhibited by phenylarsine oxide and by cytoplasmic acidification. The flux is inhibited by fusicoccin. TPC1 is inhibited by 14-3-3 proteins and has the C-terminal sequence STSDT, a type III binding site for 14-3-3 proteins, of the kind involved in fusicoccin binding. PMID:20298482

During drought, the plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) inhibits stomatal opening and promotes stomatal closure, thereby promoting water conservation. Here we synthesize experimental results into a consistent guard cell signal transduction network for ABA-induced stomatal

A Comparative Study of the Arabidopsis thaliana Guard-Cell Transcriptome and Its Modulation by Sucrose  

PubMed Central

Microarray analysis was performed on RNA isolated from guard cells that were manually dissected from leaves of Arabidopsis. By pooling our data with those of two earlier studies on Arabidopsis guard cell protoplasts, we provide a robust view of the guard-cell transcriptome, which is rich in transcripts for transcription factors, signaling proteins, transporters, and carbohydrate-modifying enzymes. To test the hypothesis that photosynthesis-derived sugar signals guard cells to adjust stomatal opening, we determined the profile of genes expressed in guard cells from leaves that had been treated with sucrose. The results revealed that expression of 440 genes changed in guard cells in response to sucrose. Consistent with this hypothesis, these genes encoded cellular functions for photosynthesis and transport of sugars, water, amino acids, and ions. Plants of T-DNA insertion lines for 50 genes highly responsive to sucrose were examined for defects in guard cell function. Twelve genes not previously known to function in guard cells were shown to be important in leaf conductance, water-use efficiency, and/or stomate development. Of these, three are of particular interest, having shown effects in nearly every test of stomatal function without a change in stomatal density: TPS5 (At4g17770), a TRAF domain-containing protein (At1g65370), and a WD repeatcontaining protein (At1g15440).

Live cell imaging of cytoplasmic Ca2+ dynamics in Arabidopsis guard cells.  

PubMed

This protocol describes a classical method for measuring cytoplasmic Ca(2+) dynamics in Arabidopsis thaliana guard cells. The Frster (fluorescence) resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based genetically modified Ca(2+) indicator Yellow Cameleon YC3.6, under the control of the guard cell-specific promoter GC1, is used for Ca(2+) measurements.

Potassium-selective single channels in guard cell protoplasts of Vicia faba  

Microsoft Academic Search

In plants, stomata control the gaseous exchange between the intercellular spaces of the leaf and the atmosphere. Fluxes of ions, in particular potassium fluxes, across the membranes of the guard cells produce changes in turgor of the guard cells which in turn result in the opening and closing of the stomatal pore1,2. The molecular mechanisms involved in the uptake or
