Outline of the History  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The term `electrophoresis,' that is, the motion of charged particles under the influence of an applied electric field, was formulated as early as the nineteenth century. The first to use electrophoresis as a technique for mixtures separation was Tiselius, who for his accomplishments was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 11 years later. Others to contribute to the development of capillary electrophoresis were Hjertén, Jorgenson and Lukacs, as well as Terabe. This chapter presents a brief historical outline of electromigration techniques.

Implementation of outline software for priority management  

SciTech Connect

No matter what your profession, most busy days require that you juggle priorities -- especially when an unexpected occurrence changes your plans. In spite of such priority juggling, relatively few people use computers to help them to decide on which job to do next. Such lack of this computer application is of no surprise. Consider that the human brain has a 100 billion-cell capacity. Each neuron of the brain is capable of receiving 100,000 or more signals. It is easy to understand, then, why such a powerful organizing and memory system is so apt with notebook, yellow stickies, or pad and pencil. But if you are responsible for the status or progress of as many as 25 to 200 or more jobs on a given day, then a computer with outliner software could be one of your most useful tools. Some trees in the work-jungle change overnight. Outliner software can help you to keep track of such changes that beget changes, seemingly without end. 14 figs.

Gauge Theory Gravity: Outline and Utility  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Gauge Theory Gravity, as formulated by Lasenby, Doran, and Gull, is a reformulation of gravitation as a gauge theory in Minkowski spacetime. This picture makes gravitation look formally analogous to the other forces of nature. It is locally equivalent to general relativity (the basic field equations are equivalent in form to the Cartan formulation of general relativity), but presents significant conceptual differences and certain calculational advantages. We provide an overview of the theory, its explicit relation to general relativity, and outline a constructive method for generating solutions. As an illustration, we obtain the most general spherically symmetric stationary vaccum solution, which explicitly displays all coordinate freedom and contains as special cases all common forms of the spherically symmetric vacuum metric.

Originally developed for the classification of materials held in the US Library of Congress, today the LCC is used to classify and arrange materials from academic libraries to virtual collections of Internet resources, such as the Scout Report Signpost. The LCC is maintained by the Cataloging Policy and Support Office of the Library of Congress. The 21 broad classes of LCC listed on the main page are further broken down by subclass for browsing. While not as easy to read as the tables in the "Unofficial Guide" to the Library of Congress Classification System (discussed in the September 13, 1996 Scout Report), the CPSO outline is the authoritative source for the LC Classification; it contains the latest additions and changes to the classification scheme.

The influence of initial outlines on manual segmentation  

PubMed Central

Purpose: Initial outlines are often presented as an aid to reduce the time-cost associated with manual segmentation and measurement of structures in medical images. This study evaluated the influence of initial outlines on manual segmentation intraobserver and interobserver precision. Methods: Three observers independently outlined all pleural mesothelioma tumors present in five computed tomography (CT) sections in each of 30 patient scans. After a lapse of time, each observer was presented with the same series of CT sections with the outlines of each observer superimposed as initial outlines. Each observer created altered outlines by altering the initial outlines to reflect their perception of the tumor boundary. Altered outlines were compared to original outlines using the Jaccard similarity coefficient (J). Intraobserver and interobserver precision of observer outlines were calculated by applying linear mixed effects analysis of variance models to the J values. The percent of minor alterations (alterations that resulted in only slight changes in the initial outline) was also recorded. Results: The average J value between pairs of observer original outlines was 0.371. The average J value between pairs of observer outlines when altered from an identical initial outline was 0.796, indicating increased interobserver precision. The average difference between J values of an observer’s segmentation created by altering their own initial outline and when altering a different observer’s initial outline was 0.476, indicating initial outlines strongly influence intraobserver precision. Observers made minor alterations on 74.5% of initial outlines with which they were presented. Conclusions: Intraobserver and interobserver precision were strongly dependent on the initial outline. These effects are likely due to the tendency of observers to make only minor corrections to initial outlines. This finding could impact observer study design, tumor growth assessment, computer-aided diagnosis system validation, and radiation therapy target volume definition when initial outlines are used as an observer aid.

Scientists Outline Volcanic Ash Risks to Aviation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The ash clouds that belched out of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano last spring and dispersed over much of Europe, temporarily paralyzing aviation, were vast smoke signal warnings about the hazard that volcanic ash poses for air traffic around the world. At a 15 December news briefing at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, two experts with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) presented an overview of the damage airplanes can sustain from rock fragment- and mineral fragment-laden ash, an update on efforts to mitigate the hazard of ash, and an outline of further measures that are needed to address the problem. Between 1953 and 2009, there were 129 reported encounters of aircraft with volcanic ash clouds, according to a newly released USGS document cited at the briefing. The report, “Encounters of aircraft with volcanic ash clouds: A compilation of known incidents, 1953-2009,” by Marianne Guffanti, Thomas Casadevall, and Karin Budding, indicates that 26 encounters involved significant damage to the airplanes; nine of those incidents resulted in engine shutdown during flight. The report, which does not focus on the effects on airplanes of cumulative exposure to dilute ash and does not include data since 2009, indicates that “ash clouds continue to pose substantial risks to safe and efficient air travel globally.”

Sex differences in proximal humeral outline shape: elliptical Fourier functions.  

PubMed

A method is presented for the numerical analysis of sex differences in size and shape of the proximal humeral outlines using elliptical Fourier functions (EFFs). A skeletal sample consisting of right and left humeri pairs of 69 individuals, 36 males and 33 females, was used. The proximal superior view in the plane of the proximo-distal axis of each humerus was photographed and then 54 boundary points were located on the two-dimensional outline tracings. These points were digitized and used to compute EFFs with 27 harmonics. From the EFFs, a set of expected points on the proximal humeral outline was generated using the centroid as an origin. Superimposition of the male and female outlines on this centroid provided a detailed picture of the relative sex differences in size and shape with respect to that center. The bounded area of the proximal humeral outline showed statistically significant sex differences. Additionally, statistical results of the amplitudes derived from the "area-standardized" EFFs and visual assessments of the mean outline plots indicated significant sex differences in shape of the proximal humeral outlines. Focusing on localized regional differences, the greater tubercle was located more postero-medially and the lesser tubercle was located more anteriorly in the males compared to the females. Sex determinations from the proximal humeri were also examined with discriminant functions based on the amplitudes, which represent shape characteristics of the outline, and the hounded area. Using a cross-validation method, predictions of the percentages of cases correctly classified with the discriminant functions were ranged from 92.8% to 95.7% for the right and left humeral data. These results suggest that differences in size and shape of the proximal humeral outlines may be better predictors of sex when compared with conventional measurements of the humerus. PMID:10782949

Three implementations of fractal analysis of particle outlines  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Three methods of calculating the stride (perimeter step-off) for determining the fractal (Hausdorff-Besicovitch) dimension from Richardson Plots are described. The initial input of two-dimensional projections of grains or of micrographs is from a videodigitizer which supplies coordinates of the particle outline. The three algorithms give differences in the speed and accuracy of the calculated fractal dimension according to the way in which the stride is calculated from the coordinate (pixel) information. Although the FAST method may be suitable for some types of (grain) outline, it is considered best to standardize on either the EXACT or HYBRID algorithms for all outline roughness assessments.

Numerical analysis of the proximal humeral outline: Bilateral shape differences.  

PubMed

A new method is presented for the numerical analysis of bilateral differences in the size and shape of the proximal humeral outlines using elliptical Fourier functions (EFFs). A skeletal sample of 36 pairs of right and left humeri was used. The proximal superior view in the plane of the proximodistal axis of each humerus was photographed with an 800 mm telephoto lens. The two-dimensional humeral outlines were carefully traced onto acetate sheets and 54 boundary points were located. These points were digitized and used to compute size-standardized EFFs with 27 harmonics. From the EFFs, a set of expected points on the proximal humeral outline was generated using the centroid as an origin. Superimposition of the right and left humeral outlines on this centroid provided a detailed picture of the relative bilateral shape differences with respect to that center. The proximal humeri showed significant bilateral size and shape differences, although the pattern of asymmetry in shape varied with respect to the region on the boundary outline. In particular, one localized aspect, the tubercular region of the proximal humeri showed significant bilateral shape differences. In contrast, the humeral head consistently showed not only a much smaller degree of bilateral shape differences, but also much less variability in size as well as shape. The results suggest that while the overall articular shape changes little with altered mechanical loadings placed on articular surfaces, the changes in the tubercular regions of the proximal humeri may be susceptible to the varying stresses associated with particular physical activities.

Shape detection of Gaborized outline versions of everyday objects  

PubMed Central

We previously tested the identifiability of six versions of Gaborized outlines of everyday objects, differing in the orientations assigned to elements inside and outside the outline. We found significant differences in identifiability between the versions, and related a number of stimulus metrics to identifiability [Sassi, M., Vancleef, K., Machilsen, B., Panis, S., & Wagemans, J. (2010). Identification of everyday objects on the basis of Gaborized outline versions. i-Perception, 1(3), 121–142]. In this study, after retesting the identifiability of new variants of three of the stimulus versions, we tested their robustness to local orientation jitter in a detection experiment. In general, our results replicated the key findings from the previous study, and allowed us to substantiate our earlier interpretations of the effects of our stimulus metrics and of the performance differences between the different stimulus versions. The results of the detection task revealed a different ranking order of stimulus versions than the identification task. By examining the parallels and differences between the effects of our stimulus metrics in the two tasks, we found evidence for a trade-off between shape detectability and identifiability. The generally simple and smooth shapes that yield the strongest contour integration and most robust detectability tend to lack the distinguishing features necessary for clear-cut identification. Conversely, contours that do contain such identifying features tend to be inherently more complex and, therefore, yield weaker integration and less robust detectability.

A clinical outline to fever in intensive care patients.  

PubMed

Fever is a common symptom in intensive care unit (ICU) patients and is caused by a wide variety of infectious and noninfectious disorders. The presence of fever often results in the act of diagnostic tests and procedures that considerably increase medical costs and expose the patient to inappropriate use of antibiotics which eventually results in antibiotic resistance. Thus, evaluation of the febrile patient in the ICU requires a meticulous and attentive approach. Currently, managing ICU patients with fever should be towards a more restrictive approach than simply starting antibiotic therapy. This review summarizes the common causes of fever in ICU patients and outlines a clinical approach to the management of these patients. PMID:23370123

The lifestyle of our kids (LOOK) project: outline of methods.  

PubMed

This methods paper outlines the overall design of a community-based multidisciplinary longitudinal study with the intent to stimulate interest and communication from scientists and practitioners studying the role of physical activity in preventive medicine. In adults, lack of regular exercise is a major risk factor in the development of chronic degenerative diseases and is a major contributor to obesity, and now we have evidence that many of our children are not sufficiently active to prevent early symptoms of chronic disease. The lifestyle of our kids (LOOK) study investigates how early physical activity contributes to health and development, utilizing a longitudinal design and a cohort of eight hundred and thirty 7-8-year-old (grade 2) school children followed to age 11-12 years (grade 6), their average family income being very close to that of Australia. We will test two hypotheses, that (a) the quantity and quality of physical activity undertaken by primary school children will influence their psychological and physical health and development; (b) compared with existing practices in primary schools, a physical education program administered by visiting specialists will enhance health and development, and lead to a more positive perception of physical activity. To test the first hypothesis we will monitor all children longitudinally over the 4 years. To test the second we will involve an intervention group of 430 children who receive two 50min physical education classes every week from visiting specialists and a control group of 400 who continue with their usual primary school physical education with their class-room teachers. At the end of grades 2, 4, and 6 we will measure several areas of health and development including blood risk factors for chronic disease, cardiovascular structure and function, physical fitness, psychological characteristics and perceptions of physical activity, bone structure and strength, motor control, body composition, nutritional intake, influence of teachers and family, and academic performance.

Multi-scale Gaussian representation and outline-learning based cell image segmentation  

PubMed Central

Background High-throughput genome-wide screening to study gene-specific functions, e.g. for drug discovery, demands fast automated image analysis methods to assist in unraveling the full potential of such studies. Image segmentation is typically at the forefront of such analysis as the performance of the subsequent steps, for example, cell classification, cell tracking etc., often relies on the results of segmentation. Methods We present a cell cytoplasm segmentation framework which first separates cell cytoplasm from image background using novel approach of image enhancement and coefficient of variation of multi-scale Gaussian scale-space representation. A novel outline-learning based classification method is developed using regularized logistic regression with embedded feature selection which classifies image pixels as outline/non-outline to give cytoplasm outlines. Refinement of the detected outlines to separate cells from each other is performed in a post-processing step where the nuclei segmentation is used as contextual information. Results and conclusions We evaluate the proposed segmentation methodology using two challenging test cases, presenting images with completely different characteristics, with cells of varying size, shape, texture and degrees of overlap. The feature selection and classification framework for outline detection produces very simple sparse models which use only a small subset of the large, generic feature set, that is, only 7 and 5 features for the two cases. Quantitative comparison of the results for the two test cases against state-of-the-art methods show that our methodology outperforms them with an increase of 4-9% in segmentation accuracy with maximum accuracy of 93%. Finally, the results obtained for diverse datasets demonstrate that our framework not only produces accurate segmentation but also generalizes well to different segmentation tasks.

Importance of elliptic Fourier methods for morphometry of complex outlines: application to the distal human femur.  

PubMed

The purpose of this technical note is to present an automatic procedure of shape characterisation using new developments in elliptical Fourier methods combined with image analysis techniques. It was applied, as an example, to the outline of the distal extremity of the distal human femur in inferior axial view. This outline was automatically extracted and characterised by an ordered series of harmonics, each harmonic being described by four new parameters called elliptical descriptors. Step by step reconstructions of outlines using an increasing number of harmonics were than performed. The simultaneous study of the elliptic descriptors and of the step by step reconstructions allowed a considerably easier geometric and morphologic interpretation of the harmonic contributions than classically. The main morphologic features of the distal femur (lateral and medial condyles, intercondylar fossa, lateral and medial borders of the articular surface, and patellar groove) were mainly described by the first seven harmonics. These new developments in elliptic Fourier methods open interesting perspectives for the study of complex outlines, providing an accurate individual morphologic characterisation, and thus the possibility of polymorphic analysis.

Effective Source-to-Source Outlining to Support Whole Program Empirical Optimization  

SciTech Connect

Although automated empirical performance optimization and tuning is well-studied for kernels and domain-specific libraries, a current research grand challenge is how to extend these methodologies and tools to significantly larger sequential and parallel applications. In this context, we present the ROSE source-to-source outliner, which addresses the problem of extracting tunable kernels out of whole programs, thereby helping to convert the challenging whole-program tuning problem into a set of more manageable kernel tuning tasks. Our outliner aims to handle large scale C/C++, Fortran and OpenMP applications. A set of program analysis and transformation techniques are utilized to enhance the portability, scalability, and interoperability of source-to-source outlining. More importantly, the generated kernels preserve performance characteristics of tuning targets and can be easily handled by other tools. Preliminary evaluations have shown that the ROSE outliner serves as a key component within an end-to-end empirical optimization system and enables a wide range of sequential and parallel optimization opportunities.

Building outline detection based on height and intensity information of airborne laser scanning data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Urban environment is extremely complex due to a multitude of features with different heights and structures. Traditional methods available to extract information regarding the buildings by using optical remote sensing images are highly labor-intensive and time-consuming. This paper developed a new method to detect building outlines based on height and intensity information of Airborne LiDAR data. Texture, relative height and intensity characteristics were first extracted from the LiDAR point cloud. Then, Support Vector Data Description was used to detect buildings with training knowledge. Finally, building outlines were obtained after data post process including small region removal, raster to vector conversion and so on. Experiments show the method proposed in this study is reliable and could be widely used in other urban areas.

Building outline extraction from airborne laser scanning data over urban areas  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Urban building extraction is an important research topic in urban studies. We present a three-step method to detect the outline of buildings, Firstly, DEM (Digital Elevation Model) is separate from DSM (Digital Surface Model), in our algorithm, and surface based method is adopted. The second step is to classify buildings and other off-terrain objects. Texture characters are selected to classify them. Four parameters (Contrast, Energy, Entropy, and Homogeneity) are defined to describe textures. Rough set method is used to distinguish between buildings and non-buildings based on knowledge gained from training data. Finally, we convert images which buildings are detected to polygons, building outlines are obtained. The data set we use in this paper is located in Ada County of Idaho State, USA. Experiments show building detection rate with our method is more than 85%. It shows the method adopted in this paper is feasible.

Effective basis for modelling outlines of envelopes generated by motion of surfaces of revolution  

SciTech Connect

This paper considers effective solutions of problems on parallel processing of envelopes generated by three-dimensional movement of surfaces of revolution. In general, determining the points outlining the envelope corresponding to concrete values for motion parameters reduces to numerical solution of nonlinear equations in generatrix parameters. For surfaces of revolution whose generatrix is a circular arc, this problem reduces to solution of a fourth-degree algebraic equation. It is shown that an envelope outline can be specified in the form of an explicit function of the motion parameters for any motion if the generatrix of the surface of revolution is a strait line, and, for motion with a fixed point or a fixed axis for the surface of revolution, if the generatrix is a conic section, spline, or a number of other curves.

Scatterogram: a method for outlining the body during lymphoscintigraphy without using external flood source  

PubMed Central

Background We evaluated the feasibility of outlining the body with scattered photons using a low dose intradermal injection of the radiotracer. Patients and methods. Sixty breast cancer patients were included into the study. 30 minutes post radiotracer injection static lymphoscintigraphy images were acquired using low energy high resolution collimator in anterior and lateral views. For patients with 2-day protocol another set of images was taken 20 hours post-injection. Two photopeaks were used during imaging: 1-Tc-99m (130-150 keV) and 2- Scatter photons (60-120). The fusion image of these two images was constructed by NM-NM fusion workflow of the workstation. The usual body outline of the patients was also acquired in 20 cases using the external flood source without moving the patients from their positions. Results The early (30 minute image) scatterograms of the patients clearly showed the contour of the body. The 20 hour scatterograms were not as high quality as the corresponding early images. The constructed overlaid images showed the location of the axillary sentinel nodes and the body contours clearly for early scatterograms but not the delayed (20 hour) ones. The processing of the images for the reconstruction of overlaid scatterograms took the mean time of 10±5 seconds. Conclusions Imaging the scattered photons is feasible for the intradermal low dose injection of the radiotracers in order to outline the body contour. This imaging method does not increase the radiation exposure of the patients or operators and does not extend the time of imaging either.

The human mandible in lateral view: elliptical fourier descriptors of the outline and their morphological analysis.  

PubMed

An original procedure based on new developments in elliptical Fourier methods associated with image analysis technics was applied to 117 human mandibles in lateral view (69 males, 48 females) in order to analyze interindividual variability and sexual dimorphism. Original parameters, called elliptical Fourier descriptors, allowed for the quantification of the shape of an outline irrespective of its morphological complexity, and provided a precise individual characterization. The use of step by step reconstructions with an increasing number of harmonics allowed for demonstration of the morphological contributions of the elliptical Fourier descriptors, and relationships to precise anatomical features were established. The first harmonics (1st to 8th) described the general mandibular shape, and the later harmonics (8th to 14th) characterized accessory and finer morphological features. The proportion of individuals presenting significant sexual dimorphism was 97.1% in males and 91.7% in females, and after size normalization 84.1% in males and 81.2% in females. Even after removal of the size component, these results in regard to mandibular dimorphism remained better than those found by classical approaches; this could be due to the use of elliptical Fourier analysis which takes into account all the information of the mandibular outline. Compared to the size component, the shape component seemed to be more important in the sexual dimorphism of the human mandible than previously recognized. The present approach opens interesting anthropological and clinical perspectives for the characterization of mandibular morphology. PMID:11936202

Correlation between variability of hand-outlined segmentation drawn by experts and local features of underlying image: a neuronal approach  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Detection of contours in biomedical imags is quite often an a priori step to quantification. Using computer facilities, it is now straightforward for a medical expert to draw boundaries around regions of interest. However, accuracy of drawing is an issue, which is rarely addressed although it may be a crucial point when for example one looks for local evolution of boundaries on a series of images. The aim of our study is to correlate the local accuracy of experts' outlines with local features of the underlying image to allow meaningful comparisons of boundaries. Local variability of experts' outlines has been characterized by deriving a set of distances between outlines repeatedly drawn on the same image. Local features of underlying images were extracted from 64 by 64 pixel windows. We have used a two-stage neural network approach in order to deal with complexity of data within windows and to correlate their features with local variability of outlines. Our method has been applied to the quantification of the progression of the Cytomegalovirus infection as observed from a series of retinal angiograms in patients with AIDS. Reconstruction of new windows from the set of primitives obtained from the GHA network shows that the method preserves desired features. Accuracy of the border of infection is properly predicted and allows to generate confidence envelope around every hand-outlined.

The installation of an optical outlining system on both a simulator and treatment unit has enabled patient cross-sectional outlines to be measured throughout a radical treatment period of 5 weeks. Two studies were conducted to assess the reproducibility of positioning in treatments for breast carcinoma. The first study assessed changes in outline for 23 patients treated on a home-made tilt-board. Seven patients (32%) displayed a change in shape in excess of 1 cm during the course of treatment, which could have significant dosimetric consequences. The second study focused on the reproducibility of set-up using different tilt-boards. This included a further 19 patients treated using a commercial board, which is now in routine use. PMID:9488133

Comparison of geometric morphometric outline methods in the discrimination of age-related differences in feather shape  

PubMed Central

Background Geometric morphometric methods of capturing information about curves or outlines of organismal structures may be used in conjunction with canonical variates analysis (CVA) to assign specimens to groups or populations based on their shapes. This methodological paper examines approaches to optimizing the classification of specimens based on their outlines. This study examines the performance of four approaches to the mathematical representation of outlines and two different approaches to curve measurement as applied to a collection of feather outlines. A new approach to the dimension reduction necessary to carry out a CVA on this type of outline data with modest sample sizes is also presented, and its performance is compared to two other approaches to dimension reduction. Results Two semi-landmark-based methods, bending energy alignment and perpendicular projection, are shown to produce roughly equal rates of classification, as do elliptical Fourier methods and the extended eigenshape method of outline measurement. Rates of classification were not highly dependent on the number of points used to represent a curve or the manner in which those points were acquired. The new approach to dimensionality reduction, which utilizes a variable number of principal component (PC) axes, produced higher cross-validation assignment rates than either the standard approach of using a fixed number of PC axes or a partial least squares method. Conclusion Classification of specimens based on feather shape was not highly dependent of the details of the method used to capture shape information. The choice of dimensionality reduction approach was more of a factor, and the cross validation rate of assignment may be optimized using the variable number of PC axes method presented herein.

Local and global level-priming occurs for hierarchical stimuli composed of outlined, but not filled-in, elements  

PubMed Central

When attention is directed to the local or global level of a hierarchical stimulus, attending to that same scale of information is subsequently facilitated. This effect is called level-priming, and in its pure form, it has been dissociated from stimulus- or response-repetition priming. In previous studies, pure level-priming has been demonstrated using hierarchical stimuli composed of alphanumeric forms consisting of lines. Here, we test whether pure level-priming extends to hierarchical configurations of generic geometric forms composed of elements that can be depicted either outlined or filled-in. Interestingly, whereas hierarchical stimuli composed of outlined elements benefited from pure level-priming, for both local and global targets, those composed of filled-in elements did not. The results are not readily attributable to differences in spatial frequency content, suggesting that forms composed of outlined and filled-in elements are treated differently by attention and/or priming mechanisms. Because our results present a surprising limit on attentional persistence to scale, we propose that other findings in the attention and priming literature be evaluated for their generalizability across a broad range of stimulus classes, including outlined and filled-in depictions.

Extracting tissue and cell outlines of Arabidopsis seeds using refraction contrast X-ray CT at the SPring-8 facility  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

How biological form is determined is one of the important questions in developmental biology. Physical forces are thought to be the primary determinants of the biological forms, and several theories for this were proposed nearly a century ago. To evaluate how physical forces can influence biological forms, precise determination of cell and tissue shapes and their geometries is necessary. Computed tomography (CT) is useful for visualizing three-dimensional structures without destroying a sample. Because recent progress in micro-CT has enabled visualizing cells and tissues at the sub-micron level, we investigated if we could extract cell and tissue outlines of seeds using refraction contrast X-ray CT available at the SPring-8 synchrotron radiation facility. We used Arabidopsis seeds because Arabidopsis is a well-known model plant and its seed size is small enough to obtain whole images using the X-ray CT experimental system. We could trace the outlines of tissues in dry seeds using beamline BL20B2 (10 keV, 2.4µm.pixel-1). Although we could also detect the outlines of some cell types, the image resolution was not adequate to extract whole cell edges. To detect the edges of cells in the epidermis and cortex, we obtained CT images using beamline BL20XU (8 keV, 0.5 µm.pixel-1). With these CT images, we could extract the facets and edges of each cell and determine cell vertices. This method enabled us to compare the numbers of cell facets among various cell types. We could also describe cell geometry as a set of points that showed these cell vertices.

Shape of the lateral mandibular outline in Lemuridae: a quantitative analysis of variability using elliptical Fourier analysis.  

PubMed

While several morphometric analyses in lemurids have focused on the craniofacial complex, the characterization of their mandibular morphology has received less attention. The mandibular outline, in lateral perspective, was quantified using elliptical Fourier analysis, in an osteological sample encompassing 189 lemurid mandibles (66 Eulemur, 51 Hapalemur, 22 Lemur and 50 Varecia), and compared using multivariate statistical techniques. The taxonomic value of this outline in Lemuridae was demonstrated by the existence of significant separations between the four genera studied. In particular, the mandibular morphology of Hapalemur was markedly different from that in the group Eulemur-Lemur-Varecia. Excluding Hapalemur from analysis, the distinctions between Eulemur, Lemur and Varecia were enhanced suggesting the existence of more subtle intergeneric differences in mandibular morphology. Variation in mandibular form was greatest in Hapalemur and smallest in Eulemur and Varecia (as demonstrated by the mean values of interindividual distances); variation was higher in Lemur than in Eulemur and Varecia, but not higher than in Hapalemur. This morphological diversity may be related to functional adaptation in response to particular dietary habits. The patterns of intergeneric and intrageneric shape variations of the mandible in Lemuridae presented here provide a valuable resource for the analysis of variation among living and fossil lemurids.

Influence of the DSM-IV Outline for Cultural Formulation on multidisciplinary case conferences in mental health.  

PubMed

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-IV-TR) includes an Outline for Cultural Formulation (CF) that identifies cultural information that can be used to modify diagnosis, clinical assessment and treatment plan. This study examined the use of the CF by a Cultural Consultation Service in the psychiatric assessment of patients referred by primary care providers. The study uses conversation analysis of 12 clinical case conferences to explore the ways in which the CF influenced the interaction of a multidisciplinary group of mental health professionals in conceptualizing the implications of patients' cultural background and current context for diagnosis and treatment planning. The results suggest that the CF can be a useful tool for interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge transfer by providing a framework to systematically introduce different disciplinary perspectives and levels of description that transcend the narrow frame of disorder-centred psychiatric diagnosis, assessment and care.

Using the example of Istanbul to outline general aspects of protecting reservoirs, rivers and lakes used for drinking water abstraction.  

PubMed

The six main drinking water reservoirs of Istanbul are under the threat of pollution due to rapid population increase, unplanned urbanisation and insufficient infrastructure. In contrast to the present land use profile, the environmental evaluation of the catchment areas reveals that point sources of pollutants, especially of domestic origin, dominate over those from diffuse sources. The water quality studies also support these findings, emphasising that if no substantial precautions are taken, there will be no possibility of obtaining drinking water from them. In this paper, under the light of the present status of the reservoirs, possible and probable short- and long-term protective measures are outlined for reducing the impact of point sources. Immediate precautions mostly depend on reducing the pollution arising from the existing settlements. Long-term measures mainly emphasise the preparation of new land use plans taking into consideration the protection of unoccupied lands. Recommendations on protection and control of the reservoirs are stated. PMID:10842805

Model curriculum outline for Alternatively Fueled Vehicle (AFV) automotive technician training in light and medium duty CNG and LPG  

SciTech Connect

This model curriculum outline was developed using a turbo-DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process which utilizes practicing experts to undertake a comprehensive job and task analysis. The job and task analysis serves to establish current baseline data accurately and to improve both the process and the product of the job through constant and continuous improvement of training. The DACUM process is based on the following assumptions: (1) Expert workers are the best source for task analysis. (2) Any occupation can be described effectively in terms of tasks. (3) All tasks imply knowledge, skills, and attitudes/values. A DACUM panel, comprised of six experienced and knowledgeable technicians who are presently working in the field, was given an orientation to the DACUM process. The panel then identified, verified, and sequenced all the necessary job duty areas and tasks. The broad duty categories were rated according to relative importance and assigned percentage ratings in priority order. The panel then rated every task for each of the duties on a scale of 1 to 3. A rating of 3 indicates an {open_quotes}essential{close_quotes} task, a rating of 2 indicates an {open_quotes}important{close_quotes} task, and a rating of 1 indicates a {open_quotes}desirable{close_quotes} task.

[Colors and their meaning in culture and psychology--a historical outline and contemporary status of color vision theories].  

PubMed

The mechanism of color perception has intrigued scholars from antiquity. However, the understanding of this phenomena only came with the recognition of the nature of light and visual perception. Ancient concepts, present in science until the Renaissance, were based more on philosophical considerations and theoretical speculations than on anatomical studies and a matter-of-fact assessment of physiological functions of the visual system. From antiquity to 17th century scientific approach to the concept of vision was dominated by two theories: intromission and extramission (emanation). Intromission theory, propagated by Alhazen (lbn al.-Haythama), Vitello, John Peckham, Roger Bacon and Leonardo da Vinci, assumed that the light was transmitted from the observed object perpendicularly to the transparent eye structures. Johannes Kepler was the first scholar to propose that the retina was the receptive part of the eye. In the first half of the 17th century, Kepler's groundbreaking optical achievements and anatomical discoveries of many other scientists cast new light on the understanding of the role of different eye structures, finally wiping out the intromission theory. A further major achievement contributing to the recognition of the true nature of colors was a theory presented by Newton in 1688. He argued that they were colored rays, and not white light, that were composed of homogenous and pure light. It was, however, not until the 19th century when two modern theories of color appeared, i.e. a trichromatic theory mostly associated with the names of Young and Hemlholtz, and an opponent colors theory of Hering. In the 20th century, the two theories--previously assumed as contradictory--were joined into the zone theories of color vision. Colors have their cultural and social meanings, as far as a very individual and personal interpretation. In the former function they are used to illustrate some cultural and sociological phenomena; in the latter, they are helpful in psychological analyses of patients. The paper outlines major historical concepts of color perception and the present usefulness of color vision tests in psychology. PMID:18669099

The validation index: a new metric for validation of segmentation algorithms using two or more expert outlines with application to radiotherapy planning.  

PubMed

Validation is required to ensure automated segmentation algorithms are suitable for radiotherapy target definition. In the absence of true segmentation, algorithmic segmentation is validated against expert outlining of the region of interest. Multiple experts are used to overcome inter-expert variability. Several approaches have been studied in the literature, but the most appropriate approach to combine the information from multiple expert outlines, to give a single metric for validation, is unclear. None consider a metric that can be tailored to case-specific requirements in radiotherapy planning. Validation index (VI), a new validation metric which uses experts' level of agreement was developed. A control parameter was introduced for the validation of segmentations required for different radiotherapy scenarios: for targets close to organs-at-risk and for difficult to discern targets, where large variation between experts is expected. VI was evaluated using two simulated idealized cases and data from two clinical studies. VI was compared with the commonly used Dice similarity coefficient (DSCpair - wise) and found to be more sensitive than the DSCpair - wise to the changes in agreement between experts. VI was shown to be adaptable to specific radiotherapy planning scenarios. PMID:23591482

Febrile neutropenia: outline of management.  

PubMed

Febrile neutropenia is a common emergency encountered in children receiving chemotherapy for a malignancy. Left untreated, it can lead to serious morbidity and mortality. Febrile neutropenia is suspected in any patient on chemotherapy who presents with fever. Prompt evaluation and management by the primary contact pediatrician is essential for a successful outcome. A detailed history and physical examination is warranted to identify source of infection, although two thirds of them may not have localizing symptoms or signs. Risk stratification is valuable in categorizing the severity and guiding therapy. Initial stabilization, prompt initiation of appropriate antibiotics and adequate supportive care are the cornerstone of treatment. Knowledge of the locally prevailing bacteriological profile and antimicrobial susceptibility data is crucial for each hospital/unit to frame and periodically modify guidelines for the choice of antimicrobials. Delay in initiating antimicrobials significantly worsens the outcome. Education of the family as well as the members of the treating unit is important in this regard. Pro-active steps must be taken to reduce incidence of hospital acquired sepsis. Diagnosis and management in relevance to the emergency room is reviewed and institutional practice is shared.

The effect of somatic cell count data adjustment and interpretation, as outlined in European Union legislation, on herd eligibility to supply raw milk for processing of dairy products.  

PubMed

Somatic cell count (SCC) limits are a key component of national and international regulation for milk quality. As yet, very limited work has been published on SCC regulatory standards, including on the effect of different approaches to SCC data adjustment and interpretation. This study examines the effect of SCC data adjustment and interpretation, as outlined in current European Union (EU) legislation, on herd eligibility to supply raw milk for processing of dairy products for human consumption, using Irish data for illustration. The study used Irish milk-recording data as a proxy for bulk tank SCC (BTSCC) data, to calculate an unadjusted monthly SCC value for each herd during each month of participation. Subsequently, 4 data adjustments were applied, as outlined in EU and national legislation: seasonal adjustment; 3-mo rolling geometric average, without accounting for a break in the supply; 3-mo rolling geometric average, after accounting for a break in the supply; and seasonal adjustment and 3-mo rolling geometric average combined, after accounting for a break in the supply. Analyses were conducted to examine the effect, during the period from 2004 to 2010, of data adjustment on the percentage of herds with herd SCC >400,000 cells/mL. In all, 4 interpretation scenarios, incorporating different data adjustment combinations, were used to estimate herd eligibility (compliant, under warning, or suspended, as defined by legislation) to supply raw milk for processing. The 4 methods of data adjustment each led to a sizable reduction (6.7, 5.0, 5.3, and 11.1 percentage points, respectively, compared with the unadjusted data) in the percentage of herds exceeding a herd SCC of 400,000 cells/mL. Herd eligibility varied by interpretation scenarios, in particular those incorporating seasonal adjustment. The study provides new perspectives on the effect of data adjustment on herd SCC and of interpretation scenarios on herd eligibility. The results provide an illustrative, rather than definitive, picture of this effect, as national authorities use BTSCC data when determining herd eligibility, whereas this study was conducted using milk-recording data as a proxy. Some aspects of the primary EU legislation are unclear, which may lead to differences in interpretation and application. The potential impact of data adjustment and milk purchaser pricing on farm-level mastitis control in Ireland is considered. PMID:23587392

Outline of a philosophy of anticipation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the first part of the paper, a metaphysics of anticipation is presented through the ordering of the different levels of anticipation in the natural world. The interconnections between those different levels are highlighted. In the second part, an attempt is first made to delineate the various mathematically expressible forms of anticipation, but then, the limits of mathematical efforts to express anticipatory phenomena are shown; these limits arise from the difficulty in quantifying the imagination, creativity, improvisation, cultural synchronicity, and autopoesis, all of which are relevant to anticipation. And so in the third part, the paper concludes with a preliminary classification of the different computational and non-computational meanings of our concept of anticipation.

[Definition and outline on geriatric oncology].  

PubMed

Geriatric oncology is the concept for management of elderly cancer patients. It is an equal approach of the health status problems and of cancer in a patient considered as a whole. Therefore it is not a subspecialty but a practice which can be translated in the elderly cancer patient's care. The treatment of cancer is based on the same principles than this of younger patients; recommendations used are those of the scientific oncological societies. Health problems of elderly patients are screened by specific tools. Patients without major health problems are managed by the oncological team in the routine; those for whom screening have demonstrated problems are first evaluated in the geriatrics setting and then oncological decisions are adapted to the patient situation. Decisions are made in specific geriatric oncology conferences. Specific clinical trials are required to build an Evidence Based Medicine background. Geriatric oncology teaching programs are warranted. PMID:20123506

Outline of the ELI-Beamlines facility  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

ELI-Beamlines will be a high-energy, repetition-rate laser pillar of the ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) project. It will be an international facility for both academic and applied research, slated to provide user capability since the beginning of 2016. The main objective of the ELI-Beamlines Project is delivery of ultra-short high-energy pulses for the generation and applications of high-brightness X-ray sources and accelerated particles. The laser system will be delivering pulses with length ranging between 10 and 150 fs and will provide high-energy petawatt and 10-PW peak powers. For high-field physics experiments it will be able to provide focused intensities attaining 1024 Wcm-2, while this value can be upgraded in a later phase without the need to upgrade the building infrastructure. In this paper we describe the overall conception and layout of the designed ELI-Beamlines facility, and review some essential elements of the design.

The Telescope: Outline of a Poetic History  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Amongst the first editions of Galileo's books, only the Saggiatore has on its frontispiece the image of the telescope. Indeed, the telescope is not pictured on the very emphatic frontispieces of the other books in which Galileo was presenting and defending the results achieved by his celestial observations, such as the Sidereus Nuncius. Many contemporary scientists denied the reliability of the telescope, and some even refused to look into the eyepiece. In the 16th and 17th century, the lenses, mirrors, and optical devices of extraordinary complexity did not have the main task of leading to the objective truth but obtaining the deformation of the reality by means of amazing effects of illusion. The Baroque art and literature had the aim of surprising, and the artists gave an enthusiastic support to the telescope. The poems in praise of Galileo's telescopic findings were quite numerous, including Adone composed by Giovanni Battista Marino, one of the most renowned poets of the time. The Galilean discoveries were actually accepted by the poets as ideologically neutral contributions to the "wonder" in spite they were rejected or even condemned by the scientists, philosophers, and theologians.

Kanto Asperity Project -Background and Outline-  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Kanto region (Tokyo and the surrounding area) is one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world and has been devastated by repeated great earthquakes. This region is located at an island arc-island arc collision zone and a zone where Pacific and Philippine Sea plates are subducting. Great earthquakes along the Sagami trough, where the Philippine Sea slab is subducting, have repeatedly occurred. The 1703 Genroku and 1923 (Taisho) Kanto earthquakes caused severe damages in the metropolitan area. The recurrence periods of Taisho- and Genroku-type earthquakes are about 200-400 and 2000 years, respectively (e.g., Earthquake Research Committee, 2004). Many studies on the asperities along the Sagami trough have been carried out. Two asperities of the 1923 Kanto earthquake are located around the western part of Kanagawa prefecture (the base of the Izu peninsula) and around the Miura peninsula. An additional asperity of the 1703 Genroku earthquake is located the southern part of the Boso Peninsula. Slow slip events have also repeatedly occurred in an area adjacent to the asperities of the great earthquakes, off Boso peninsula (e.g., Ozawa et al 2007). In the cases of Nankai and Cascadia, slow slip events occur at deeper levels than the asperities, in a transition zone between the asperity and a region of steady slip. In contrast, slow slip events in the Kanto region have occurred at relatively shallow depths, at the same level as the asperity, raising the possibiltiy of friction controlled by different conditions (materials, fluid, or surface roughness) to those (temperature and pressure) encountered at Nankai and Cascadia. Deep seismic profiling have been carried out since the Special Project for Earthquake Disaster Mitigation in Urban areas (DaiDaiToku) (2002-2006). These profiling successfully presented a new image of the upper surface of the Philippine Sea slab (Sato et al. 2005), which is shallower than the previous models. This profiling also presents that amplitudes of reflections are different between in the asperity and non-asperity regions, suggesting the different characteristics on the plate boundaries in these regions. The Kanto Asperity Project (KAP) have been submitted to IODP to know the geometry, physical properties, and tectonics along the Sagami trough, which are considered to control the occurrence of the great earthquakes and slow slips. The KAP consists of three research components. The first component is shallow drilling, coring, and logging at several sites distributed in wide area for the combined purposes of geological characterization (sediments, basements, and faults), tectonic reconstruction (collision, accretion, and rotation), earthquake history inferred from sediments, and in situ stress measurements. The second is long-term geophysical monitoring with wide area network, focusing on understanding the geometrical and geophysical situation of the system of asperities and non-asperities. The third one is coring and logging plate boundaries in asperity and slow slip regions to measure physical properties. Information obtained in this plan may be effective to modify simulations of earthquake cycles, strong motion, and tsunamis for seismic hazard assessment.

EBE is a publication of Eastern Bloc Research Ltd., Newton Kyme, England. Gazprom, responsible for more than 90% of Soviet gas production, predicts Soviet gas production will continue to increase beyond 2030 and expects the resource base ultimately will total more than 330 trillion cu m, EBE the. Soviet Central Asia will begin to decline as a major source of gas during the early years of the next century, but western Siberian production will continue to grow after 2030. The continental shelf, mainly the Barents Sea, will eventually become a very large supplier of gas, EBE reported.

Outline of a theory of manic-depressive illness.  

PubMed

Manic-depressive illness is characterized by locking into extreme states and alternation between those extremes. Locking into extreme states is also characteristic of a bistable, a basic electronic device of which the essential feature is a positive feedback loop with greater than unity gain. An argument is presented that under natural selection there has evolved a well-known and advantageous tendency for perceptions of successes to increase confidence, and that it is in the nature of confidence to increase perceptions of successes. Thus arises a positive feedback loop, in which perceptions of successes increase confidence, which further increases perceptions of successes, and so on, and the converse with failure and inconfidence. When the gain of the loop exceeds unity then locking into mania or depression will result. The feedback gain depends on both internal 'biological' factors and external situational factors. As a result of natural fluctuations the gain will occasionally fall temporarily below unity, releasing from the extreme state. Escape from mania will bias towards depression, whereas escape from depression will be elating. The physical embodiment of confidence may be serotonergic (or closely related) activity. PMID:9881834

National plan of action for promoting breastfeeding: an outline.  

PubMed

The International Code of Marketing of Breast Milk Substitutes came into existence in 1981. The Innocenti Declaration was signed in 1990 for protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding. A significant development took place with the enactment of "Infant Milk Substitutes, Infant Foods and Feeding Bottles Act 1992". The establishment of the Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India (BPNI) in 1991 led to several significant initiatives in partnership with Association for Consumers Action on Safety and Health (ACASH) and several other NGOs and professional associations. After 10 years of movement, a meeting of the key partners was thought of to review the ongoing initiative to protect, promote and support breastfeeding. In the meeting the partners discussed objectives, key issues, advocacy and policy development, training and capacity development, communication and social mobilisation, community action and intervention, monitoring, evaluation and research. It was hoped that this would provide the necessary impetus for concerted action to be taken by different partners at all levels to organise "baby friendly communities" a reality in India where young children's rights to breastfeeding for survival, growth and development would be fulfilled in partnership with families and communities.

[Calcium homeostasis in the animal cell--an outline].  

PubMed

Calcium ions are universal and versatile intracellular signalling molecule which is involved in regulation of many cellular functions in all living cells throughout all animal species. It results from unique properties of Ca2+ in comparison to other two- and monovalent cations commonly present inside and outside cells. On the other hand an excessive increase of intracellular Ca2+ accumulation may exert toxic effect leading to cell death. Therefore calcium content in particular cellular compartment must be precisely regulated. All cells have a complex set of proteins which allow them to remove, store or take up Ca2+ in very controlled manner. This article gives a concise survey of mechanisms involved cellular calcium homeostasis and signalling. PMID:23662432

Outline of multipurpose utilization of geothermal resources in China  

SciTech Connect

China is rich in geothermal resources. The lower temperature limit of geothermal waters in China is defined as 25/sup 0/C. The thermal waters are categorized into three groups: low (25/sup 0/ to 60/sup 0/C), medium (60/sup 0/ to 100/sup 0/C) and high (> 100/sup 0/C) temperature thermal water. Xizang (Tibet), Taiwan and Yunnan are the most promising regions for the development of high temperature geothermal energy. Medium-low temperature water is more efficient for direct use. Since 1977, six experimental geothermal power stations have been set up throughout the country. In Beijing (Peking), Tianjin and other places thermal water has been used for space heating, industrial processing, agriculture, horticulture, and therapeutic sanatoriums, etc.

IGF-I/IGFBP system: metabolism outline and physical exercise.  

PubMed

The GH/IGF-I system plays a well-known hormonal role and its effects, mainly anabolic and insulin-sensitizing, are mediated through endocrine as well as paracrine/ autocrine mechanisms. This system includes the binding proteins, namely GH binding proteins and IGF-I binding proteins (IGFBP). As expected, this axis plays a key role in organism modification in consequence of a physical exercise. Physical activity, training, and exercise capacity chiefly involve anabolism process modifications of various tissues, in particular muscular adjustments. Numerous investigators found a correlation among the level of exercise tolerance, muscle strength or walking speed and IGF-I/IGFBP-3 concentrations. However, also inverse and absent correlations between circulating IGF-I concentrations and acute or chronic exercise responses have been reported. IGF-I is generally accepted as an important GH mediator with metabolic effects, through both endocrine and paracrine or autocrine mechanisms. GH is the main regulator of the hepatic synthesis of IGF-I and IGFBP-3, which is the most abundant IGF carrier in human plasma. Recently, it has been shown that the physical exercise stimulatory impact on skeletal muscles is mediated through an increased local IGF-I synthesis with an IGFPB involvement. An absent association of exercise performance and circulating IGF-I may indicate that exercise will exert muscle strength by predominately locally derived paracrine or autocrine mediators rather than endocrine circulating IGF-I. The present review considers the general aspects of the IGF/IGFPB system and the role of the IGF/IGFPB system in relation to physical exercise (type, duration, etc.) taking into account the training aspects.

THE GALACTIC BULGE SURVEY: OUTLINE AND X-RAY OBSERVATIONS  

SciTech Connect

We introduce the Galactic Bulge Survey (GBS) and we provide the Chandra source list for the region that has been observed to date. Among the goals of the GBS are constraining the neutron star (NS) equation of state and the black hole (BH) mass distribution via the identification of eclipsing NS and BH low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs). The latter goal will, in addition, be obtained by significantly enlarging the number of BH systems for which a BH mass can be derived. Further goals include constraining X-ray binary formation scenarios, in particular the common envelope phase and the occurrence of kicks, via source-type number counts and an investigation of the spatial distribution of X-ray binaries, respectively. The GBS targets two strips of 6{sup 0} x 1{sup 0} (12 deg{sup 2} in total), one above (1{sup 0} < b < 2{sup 0}) and one below (-2{sup 0} < b < -1{sup 0}) the Galactic plane in the direction of the Galactic center at both X-ray and optical wavelengths. By avoiding the Galactic plane (-1{sup 0} < b < 1{sup 0}) we limit the influence of extinction on the X-ray and optical emission but still sample relatively large number densities of sources. The survey is designed such that a large fraction of the X-ray sources can be identified from their optical spectra. The X-ray survey, by design, covers a large area on the sky while the depth is shallow using 2 ks per Chandra pointing. In this way we maximize the predicted number ratio of (quiescent) LMXBs to cataclysmic variables. The survey is approximately homogeneous in depth to a 0.5-10 keV flux of 7.7 x 10{sup -14} erg cm{sup -2} s{sup -1}. So far, we have covered about two-thirds (8.3 deg{sup 2}) of the projected survey area with Chandra providing over 1200 unique X-ray sources. We discuss the characteristics and the variability of the brightest of these sources.

An outline of recent advances in birdsong neurobiology.  

PubMed

Several landmark discoveries have shaped the recent study of brain substrates for birdsong. The failure of deaf birds to reproduce a song from memory lent support for the concept of a song template. An attempt to test this idea resulted in the discovery of lateralization of song control. Search for the brain sites of lateralization and auditory control of voice led to the discovery of the main song control nuclei. Neurophysiological studies have unequivocally shown that auditory information reaches the song control system, but the exact pathway by which the song control system receives auditory inputs needs further investigation. The finding that lesions of the lateral magnocellular nucleus of the anterior neostriatum or area X affect song development in young birds but not the maintenance of song in adults suggested a role of the anterior forebrain pathway to RA in song learning. Another area of research in which much progress has been made concerns the relationships between the vocal and respiratory systems. The archistriatal and midbrain vocal nuclei innervate some of the respiratory centers in the medulla. The old questions of 'mini-breath' during fast singing and independent control of the two sides of the syrinx have been resolved. Finally, comparisons of the vocal and auditory systems between taxa indicate that different groups may use different neural circuits to achieve similar vocal-auditory behavior. PMID:7842286

Heart failure (HF) is a condition with high mortality worldwide characterized by persistent progression. Myocardial hypertrophy is a dominant feature during the early stage of HF. The development of HF is a complex process related to a series of physiologic and molecular factors. Although the treatment of HF has been changed during the past century, the knowledge on its molecular mechanism is still very limited. The review herein tries to touch the molecular basis underlying HF and discusses the relevance between HF and other diseases such as thrombosis. Furthermore, we believe that the global alterations during progression of HF revealed by high content screening techniques may facilitate our understanding on HF, and thereby the development of new therapeutics with less side effect.

A molecular and genetic outline of cardiac morphogenesis.  

PubMed

Perturbations in cardiac development result in congenital heart disease, the leading cause of birth defect-related infant morbidity and mortality. Advances in cardiac developmental biology have significantly augmented our understanding of signalling pathways and transcriptional networks underlying heart formation. Cardiogenesis is initiated with the formation of mesodermal multipotent cardiac progenitor cells and is governed by cross-talk between developmental cues emanating from endodermal, mesodermal and ectodermal cells. The molecular and transcriptional machineries that direct the specification and differentiation of these cardiac precursors are part of an evolutionarily conserved programme that includes the Nkx-, Gata-, Hand-, T-box- and Mef2 family of transcription factors. Unravelling the hierarchical networks governing the fate and differentiation of cardiac precursors is crucial for our understanding of congenital heart disease and future stem cell-based and gene therapies. Recent molecular and genetic lineage analyses have revealed that subpopulations of cardiac progenitor cells follow distinctive specification and differentiation paths, which determine their final contribution to the heart. In the last decade, progenitor cells that contribute to the arterial pole and right ventricle have received much attention, as abnormal development of these cells frequently results in congenital defects of the aortic and pulmonary outlets, representing the most commonly occurring congenital cardiac defects. In this review, we provide an overview of the building plan of the vertebrate four-chambered heart, with a special focus on cardiac progenitor cell specification, differentiation and deployment during arterial pole development.

The analyses can be performed on different sub-groups of type 1 and 2 diabetic patients, defined in terms of age, gender, baseline risk factors and pre-existing complications. The model performs real-time simulations. Full on-screen documentation of the model structure, logic, calculations and data sources is available to maximize the model's transparency. Economic and clinical data used in the disease management model are editable by the user, allowing the input of new data as they become available, the creation of country-specific, HMO-specific, or provider-specific versions of the model, and the exploration of new hypotheses ('what-if' analyses). The approach used allows maximum flexibility, adaptability, and transparency within the model structure. For the user-defined patient cohorts and intervention strategies the diabetes disease management model compares life expectancy, expected incidence and prevalence of complications as well as expected life-time (or shorter) treatment cost. Diabetes and complication management strategies can be compared in different patient populations in a variety of realistic clinical settings. The model allows extrapolation of results obtained from relatively short-term clinical trials to longer-term medical outcomes, and from trial populations to real-life populations providing a tangible yardstick to judge the quality of diabetes care. The model was used to evaluate diabetes care options in Germany, France, Switzerland, UK and US. PMID:11080562

Outline of a general theory of behavior and brain coordination.  

PubMed

Much evidence suggests that dynamic laws of neurobehavioral coordination are sui generis: they deal with collective properties that are repeatable from one system to another and emerge from microscopic dynamics but may not (even in principle) be deducible from them. Nevertheless, it is useful to try to understand the relationship between different levels while all the time respecting the autonomy of each. We report a program of research that uses the theoretical concepts of coordination dynamics and quantitative measurements of simple, well-defined experimental model systems to explicitly relate neural and behavioral levels of description in human beings. Our approach is both top-down and bottom-up and aims at ending up in the same place: top-down to derive behavioral patterns from neural fields, and bottom-up to generate neural field patterns from bidirectional coupling between astrocytes and neurons. Much progress can be made by recognizing that the two approaches--reductionism and emergentism--are complementary. A key to understanding is to couch the coordination of very different things--from molecules to thoughts--in the common language of coordination dynamics. PMID:23084845

LabNet: Toward a community of practice  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is common currency that science education in America isn't working well enough. We are failing to excite the curiosity of young minds in the great questions of the physical universe. LabNet—a prototype teacher-support project developed by TERC, and funded by the National Science Foundation, is dedicated to addressing this issue. The first three year phase of LabNet began in January 1989 and ended in mid-1992. During that time, some 562 high school teachers of physics in 37 states were involved. Three interconnected threads are woven through the fabric of LabNet. The first, and most vivid, is the use of projects to enhance students' science learning. LabNet's second thread is building a community of practice among LabNet teachers. The third thread woven into LabNet is promoting the use of new technologies in science teaching and learning. The most notable use of new technology in the LabNet project is telecommunications—computer-to-computer communication via telephone lines. A dedicated network has been created and made available to all participants. As the first national network designed for high school teachers of physical science, the LabNetwork is a dynamic medium for building and sustaining a community of practice for physics teachers separated by many thousands of miles. In recommendations directed at teachers, scientists, and particularly the National Science Foundation, steps are outlined that can be taken to strengthen the community and the teaching of science in both the secondary and elementary grades.

Making the Case for Jefferson Lab  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This chapter is a personal account of the initial planning and competition for a new laboratory, which eventually became known as the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, with the official nickname "Jefferson Lab." The period covered starts as far back as 1964, with the introduction of quarks, and extends up to the late 1980s after the initial team was assembled, the superconducting design was in place, and construction was well underway. I describe some of the major experiments that were proposed to justify the laboratory, reflect on the present status of those initially proposed experiments, and very briefly outline some of the new ideas that emerged after the laboratory was constructed. The science is presented in a simple manner intended for a lay audience, with some of the ideas illustrated by cartoons that were often used in popular lectures given during this period.

Subliminal psychodynamic activation: an experiment controlling for major possible confounding influences outlined by Fudin.  

PubMed

40 and 48 subjects participated in two separate experiments aimed at reproducing the subliminal psychodynamic activation (SPA) phenomenon and taking into account the major methodological critique by Fudin (1986, 1990). Subjects were first exposed either to a full or one of all possible partial symbiotic messages and then to their anagram equivalents. Confounding and irrelevant influences were controlled; the results indicate that only the full symbiotic message improved motor performance. This strongly suggests that subjects encode the meaning of the full message and supports an interpretation in terms of an alleviation of an internal symbiotic conflict leading to a state of calmness conducive to improved motor performance.

Comparing the robustness of ordinary kriging and lognormal kriging: outliner resistance  

SciTech Connect

Ordinary kriging is well-known to be optimal when the data have a multivariate normal distribution (and if the variogram is known), whereas lognormal kriging presupposes the multivariate lognormality of the data. But in practice, real data never entirely satisfy these assumptions. In this article, the sensitivity of these two kriging estimators to departures from these assumptions and in particular, their resistance to outliers is considered. An outlier effect index designed to assess the effect of a single outlier on both estimators is proposed, which can be extended to other types of estimators. Although lognormal kriging is sensitive to slight variations in the sill of the variogram of the logs (i.e., their variance), it is not influenced by the estimate of the mean of the logs.

Using Auditory Steady State Responses to Outline the Functional Connectivity in the Tinnitus Brain  

PubMed Central

Background Tinnitus is an auditory phantom perception that is most likely generated in the central nervous system. Most of the tinnitus research has concentrated on the auditory system. However, it was suggested recently that also non-auditory structures are involved in a global network that encodes subjective tinnitus. We tested this assumption using auditory steady state responses to entrain the tinnitus network and investigated long-range functional connectivity across various non-auditory brain regions. Methods and Findings Using whole-head magnetoencephalography we investigated cortical connectivity by means of phase synchronization in tinnitus subjects and healthy controls. We found evidence for a deviating pattern of long-range functional connectivity in tinnitus that was strongly correlated with individual ratings of the tinnitus percept. Phase couplings between the anterior cingulum and the right frontal lobe and phase couplings between the anterior cingulum and the right parietal lobe showed significant condition x group interactions and were correlated with the individual tinnitus distress ratings only in the tinnitus condition and not in the control conditions. Conclusions To the best of our knowledge this is the first study that demonstrates existence of a global tinnitus network of long-range cortical connections outside the central auditory system. This result extends the current knowledge of how tinnitus is generated in the brain. We propose that this global extend of the tinnitus network is crucial for the continuos perception of the tinnitus tone and a therapeutical intervention that is able to change this network should result in relief of tinnitus.

Radon-222 in Brazil: an outline of indoor and outdoor measurements.  

PubMed

This study discusses the methodology for measuring and assessing the radon concentration in indoor and outdoor environments. A research study was developed to investigate the long-term behavior of the diurnal and seasonal fluctuations of radon (222)Rn EEC (Equilibrium-Equivalent Concentration) and the influence of temperature and other climatic aspects on this behavior. The study was performed by means of both integrated and instantaneous measurements of radon and its short-lived daughter products for a period of 1 year in an indoor environment in Rio de Janeiro city, Brazil (reference environment), with continuous measurement, using a radon monitor with an alpha spectrometry detector. For a single day, a variability of about 50% could be observed in the (222)Rn EEC values measured on a hourly basis, with a maximum occurring early in the morning and a minimum in the afternoon. For the long-term period, seasonality is responsible for a two order of magnitude variability, with a maximum of 50 Bq.m(-3) in winter (dry season) and a minimum of 0.5 Bq.m(-3) in the summer months (wet season), outdoors. A negative correlation with temperature was observed. The conclusions of this experiment led to a survey of radon gas concentration in dwellings in Rio de Janeiro city, Brazil, in urban area with nearly 7 million inhabitants, through integrated sampling methods, using a Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors Technique (SSNTD). The study was conducted in different geomorphological locations in town. The radon gas concentration in Rio de Janeiro dwellings ranged from 5 Bq.m(-3) to 200 Bq.m(-3). A good correlation between indoor radon gas concentration and location of dwellings was observed. The seashore areas presented the lowest levels of indoor radon concentration, whereas the highest levels were found close to the mountains. PMID:12660045

Monitoring solar-thermal systems: An outline of methods and procedures  

SciTech Connect

This manual discusses the technical issues associated with monitoring solar-thermal systems. It discusses some successful monitoring programs that have been implemented in the past. It gives the rationale for selecting a program of monitoring and gives guidelines for the design of new programs. In this report, solar thermal monitoring systems are classified into three levels. For each level, the report discusses the kinds of information obtained by monitoring, the effort needed to support the monitoring program, the hardware required, and the costs involved. Ultimately, all monitoring programs share one common requirement: the collection of accurate data that characterize some aspect or aspects of the system under study. This report addresses most of the issues involved with monitoring solar thermal systems. It does not address such topics as design fundamentals of thermal systems or the relative merits of the many different technologies employed for collection of solar energy.

Psychotherapy research needs theory. Outline for an epistemology of the clinical exchange.  

PubMed

This paper provides an analysis of a basic assumption grounding the clinical research: the ontological autonomy of psychotherapy-based on the idea that the clinical exchange is sufficiently distinguished from other social objects (i.e. exchange between teacher and pupils, or between buyer and seller, or interaction during dinner, and so forth). A criticism of such an assumption is discussed together with the proposal of a different epistemological interpretation, based on the distinction between communicative dynamics and the process of psychotherapy-psychotherapy is a goal-oriented process based on the general dynamics of human communication. Theoretical and methodological implications are drawn from such a view: It allows further sources of knowledge to be integrated within clinical research (i.e. those coming from other domains of analysis of human communication); it also enables a more abstract definition of the psychotherapy process to be developed, leading to innovative views of classical critical issues, like the specific-nonspecific debate. The final part of the paper is devoted to presenting a model of human communication--the Semiotic Dialogical Dialectic Theory--which is meant as the framework for the analysis of psychotherapy.

The V World Youth Championship for FIFA Cup was held for the first time in Saudi Arabia from 16-2-89 till 3-3-89. Sports injuries at this competitions was reported from the city of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia with eight matches taking place at different days. Out of 176 soccer players from group C (Brazil, Germany DR, Mali and USA) who participated in this competition, only six were injured and 7 injuries were noted with an incidence of 3.98% (n = 7/176). Lower limb injuries predominated (ankle sprain: 28.57%; tibia fracture: 14.29%), whereas head, facial, radius and rib injuries had equal rates (14.29%). Also, fractures predominated (42.86%) due to the aggressive attitudes. Concussion (14.29%) and cut wound (14.29%) were less common. High skills, good physical fitness, compliance of rules and regulations, strict surveillance of violence and misbehaviour by the FIFA cup organizing team and allied offices led to the well performance, safer environment and low incidence of sports injuries.

AIDS and food production in East and Central Africa: a research outline.  

PubMed

AIDS has penetrated at least 42 countries in Africa. Death of Africans usually occurs within 3 years of diagnosis. Not much is currently known about the demographics of the disease or about its impact on economic and social behavior, farming, and food production. There is currently a food crisis in Africa, so it is appropriate to study how much of an impact this disease has on future food production. In order to study the problem, one must predict the spread of AIDS. 2nd, one must infer how labor loss effects current rural production. Labor loss will cause changes in organization of production, technology, and types of crops grown. As a crisis increases, certain groups will be cut out of the food distribution. Characterizations such as these allow the mapping of areas vulnerable to labor loss. Field analysis and modeling must substantiate the theories and predictions. This paper describes the research design which will be used by 2 researchers from the Overseas Development Group of the University of East Anglia to measure the impact of AIDS on food production, working initially in a high HIV - prevalent area in Uganda.

Development of Hydrologic Characterization Methodology of Faults: Outline of the Project in Berkeley, California  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan (NUMO), after volunteering municipalities arise, will start a three-staged program for selecting a HLW and TRU waste repository site. It is recognized from experiences from various site characterization programs in the world that the hydrologic property of faults is one of the most important parameters in the early stage of the program. It is expected that numerous faults of interest exist in an investigation area of several tens of square kilometers. It is, however, impossible to characterize all these faults in a limited time and budget. This raises problems in the repository designing and safety assessment that we may have to accept unrealistic or over conservative results by using a single model or parameters for all the faults in the area. We, therefore, seek to develop an efficient and practical methodology to characterize hydrologic property of faults. This project is a five year program started in 2007, and comprises the basic methodology development through literature study and its verification through field investigations. The literature study tries to classify faults by correlating their geological features with hydraulic property, to search for the most efficient technology for fault characterization, and to develop a work flow diagram. The field investigation starts from selection of a site and fault(s), followed by existing site data analyses, surface geophysics, geological mapping, trenching, water sampling, a series of borehole investigations and modeling/analyses. Based on the results of the field investigations, we plan to develop a systematic hydrologic characterization methodology of faults. A classification method that correlates combinations of geological features (rock type, fault displacement, fault type, position in a fault zone, fracture zone width, damage zone width) with widths of high permeability zones around a fault zone was proposed through a survey on available documents of the site characterization programs. The field investigation started in 2008, by selecting the Wildcat Fault that cut across the Laurence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) site as the target. Analyses on site-specific data, surface geophysics, geological mapping and trenching have confirmed the approximate location and characteristics of the fault (see Session H48, Onishi, et al). The plan for the remaining years includes borehole investigations at LBNL, and another series of investigations in the northern part of the Wildcat Fault.

Anatomy in the Third Reich: an outline, part 2. Bodies for anatomy and related medical disciplines.  

PubMed

All anatomical departments of German universities used bodies of the executed and other victims of the National Socialist (NS) regime for their work. Many of these victims had been executed in prisons and were members of the German political opposition; others had perished in camps for prisoners of war or forced laborers and concentration camps, and were of various European and other descent. Anatomists generally welcomed the increased influx of "fresh material" for purposes of research and education of the growing numbers of medical students. No anatomist is known to have refused work with the bodies of NS victims. Other medical disciplines also made use of these bodies, among them were racial hygienists and neuropathologists. In the late 19th and early 20th century, the fields of anatomy, physical anthropology, and racial hygiene (eugenics) were closely related in their subject matter. Anatomists were involved in the biological foundation of racial hygiene, most prominently among them Eugen Fischer. The discipline was established as part of the medical curriculum after 1920. Racial hygiene became the scientific justification for NS policies that led to racial discrimination, involuntary sterilization and ultimately mass murder. Anatomists taught racial hygiene throughout the Third Reich and did research in this area. Some were actively involved in NS policies through propaganda and evaluations for the so-called Genetic Health Courts, whereas others became victims of their own science in that they were dismissed for racial reasons.

[Smoking in Morocco: an outline of the anti-smoking campaign].  

PubMed

In Morocco, as in many developing countries, tobacco use has become a plague which aggravates the many already existing problems. A coordinated prevention programme which included research and a variety of educational efforts, has been underway for the past five years. The preliminary stage of the non-smoking campaign consisted of research through use of a variety of standardized questionnaires. The research results showed tobacco use in Morocco to be the following: 23.8% of secondary students are smokers with variation according to family, culture, environment and sex (33% male vs. 8.6% female); 33.8% of university students smoke, including those in Medical Schools; 52.1% of adults in the work environment smoke, including doctors. The rate declines drastically among practicing muslims (between the ages of 14 and 65) to 9.8%. The use of other drugs is significantly higher in students who use tobacco (25%) than those who do not (1.5%). A common factor appeared regardless of age, sex, or occupation: there was insufficient information available concerning the harmful effects of smoking. An educational campaign was therefore launched. As the youth were considered to be the most vulnerable target group, a major part of the educational efforts was concentrated on them. A variety of activities was implemented including conference-debates using audiovisual supports; radio and T.V. broadcasts; contests run with the assistance of the CIPADED (International Committee for the Prevention of Alcohol/Drug Dependence). Information of the harmful effects of tobacco use was diffused in workplaces, government offices, and at public assemblies. Efforts were also implemented to promote adoption of legislation which would limit tobacco consumption.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) PMID:3371994

How Neurons Generate Behavior in A Hatchling Amphibian Tadpole: An Outline  

PubMed Central

Adult nervous systems are so complex that understanding how they produce behavior remains a real challenge. We chose to study hatchling Xenopus tadpoles where behavior is controlled by a few thousand neurons but there is a very limited number of types of neuron. Young tadpoles can flex, swim away, adjust their trajectory, speed-up and slow-down, stop when they contact support and struggle when grasped. They are sensitive to touch, pressure, noxious stimuli, light intensity and water currents. Using whole-cell recording has led to rapid progress in understanding central networks controlling behavior. Our methods are illustrated by an analysis of the flexion reflex to skin touch. We then define the seven types of neuron that allow the tadpole to swim when the skin is touched and use paired recordings to investigate neuron properties, synaptic connections and activity patterns. Proposals on how the swim network operates are evaluated by experiment and network modeling. We then examine GABAergic inhibitory pathways that control swimming but also produce tonic inhibition to reduce responsiveness when the tadpole is at rest. Finally, we analyze the strong alternating struggling movements the tadpole makes when grasped. We show that the mechanisms for rhythm generation here are very different to those during swimming. Although much remains to be explained, study of this simple vertebrate has uncovered basic principles about the function and organization of vertebrate nervous systems.

Outline of a failure: a true story of nine precepts, with two morals  

SciTech Connect

This is not a conventional case history. It is concerned with failure rather than with triumph, and further, with a personal definition of failure. Failure, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. The system I shall call SOS, when measured in terms of absolute achievement, might not be considered a failure. When measured against corporate plans and goals it might not be admitted to be a failure. But when measured against some aspects of the state-of-the-art it professed to advance, against fundamental ergonomic principles, and, especially, against its potential, it was a failure. Specifically, it failed to meet the expectations of one user. It is only fair, then, to begin by characterizing those expectations and giving some indication of their sources. Then follow five sections on various classes of failure. (The Precepts of the title are embedded in these sections.) The paper concludes with a brief discussion of the Two Morals.

'Never twice without thrice'. An outline for the understanding of traumatic neurosis.  

PubMed

Following the review of Freud's work on trauma (1916-17, 1920, 1926, 1933, 1939), this article proposes to view the traumatic scene as a screen which acts as an active process in the case of many victims who, like Mrs D, break down a few days after being assaulted. After a first attempt at denial, the ego is submerged with repressed content. Repetition is seen as a means of abreacting the trauma by seeking to bind the enormous quantity of excitations that cannot find discharge. Repetition, because of its compulsive quality, fails. The victim remains in a state of helplessness against which she resorts to denial, splitting and projection (Freud, 1920, 1926). This strategy is seen, however, as maintaining the victim in a state of helplessness. Thus, I suggest that, overwhelmed, the ego finally resorts to a multi-levelled system of defence. On a first level, fixation to the trauma, like in screen-memories, gives way to a first displacement. On a second level, the adoption of an identity built upon being a victim contributes to the strength of this displacement. On a third level, identification with the aggressor consolidates this defensive strategy by giving meaning to the hostility awakened by the sexual assault. PMID:11915128

Outline for the Winter T-PARC (THORPEX Pacific-Asia Regional Campaign)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

For the purpose of improvement of 1-14 day high impact weather forecast, the wintertime THORPEX Pacific-Asia Regional Campaign (Winter T-PARC) was carried out by the lead organization of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in United States from 12 January to the end of February 2008. Main observation platforms were enhanced upper air soundings in Siberia, Russia, two aircrafts (G-IV and C-130) for drop-sonde soundings. NOAA G-IV was located at Yokota AB in Tokyo, Japan and USAF C-130 was at Anchorage in Alaska, USA. As the rapidly deepening low pressure systems in the Northwestern Pacific region strongly affect downstream regions, such as Alaska, Arctic and entire North-American continent, they have a great contribution to the improvement of the forecasting in the Unite Sates and Canada. Winter T-PARC is assigned as a part of International Polar Year (IPY) program in the Unites States. National Institute of Polar Research in Japan supports the Winter T-PARC as a part of Japanese IPY activity. Using NCEPFNL dataset, temperature and moisture transportations and storm activities were analyzed over the North Pacific and Arctic regions from December 2008 to March 2009. As shown in Yoshida and Asuma (2004) and Kuwano-Yoshida and Asuma (2008), explosively deepening cyclones in the Northwestern Pacific region had distinct seasonal variations. That is, cyclones rapidly developed near the east coast of the Eurasian Continent (OJ cyclones) in December, moved quickly straightforward to the East in January (PO-L cyclones) and formed over the East China Sea where the south of Japan, moved to the Northward and developed over the east of Hokkaido (PO-O cyclones) in February and March. Figure shows monthly low pressure systems and their tracks in the Arctic region. Large amounts of heat and moisture flow into the Arctic region from the lower and mid latitudes through the Bearing Straight as well as the Norwegian Sea. Storms entered and traveled into the Arctic region continued from the Northwestern Pacific region through the Eastern Siberia and Bearing Straight in December and February. We could identify the linkage between the explosively deepening low pressure systems in the Northwestern Pacific region and storms in the Arctic region through the Bering Straight region.

An outline of the interdisciplinary survey on a new type intra-plate volcanism -  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Several very young volcanoes (< 1 Ma) were discovered on the Early Cretaceous (~135 Ma) NW Pacific Plate. They are very small knolls on the abyssal plane (~ 6000 m water depth) and erupted strong to moderate alkaline basalt, generally including deep-seated xenoliths. This volcanic field is far from any trenches and also spreading centers, therefore these are classified as a kind of intra-oceanic plate volcanism. In this area, however, there are neither any hotspots nor large igneous province previous reported. Therefore, this volcanic activity is not adequate for any existence volcanic models on the earth. Then, we named this special volcanism Petit Spot. To understand this petit spot volcanism, we've been taking interdisciplinary surveys. The main results of these surveys using JAMSTEC four cruises (KR03-07, KR04-08, YK05-06 and KR05-10) and shore-based research are listed below. 1) Volcanic rocks were sampled from three small knolls by dredges and submersible dives. They are highly vesicular, and generally include peridotite xenoliths and peridotitic xenocrysts. 2) Terrestrial Heat Flow was measured at two points with piston coring on the pelagic sediments. 3) Seabeam mapping shows there are a lot of small knolls assumed young volcanoes. The arrangement and the size of the knolls imply that this volcanic field is a monogenic volcanic cluster, which are often observed in the intra-continental plate. 4) Single Channel Seismic (SCS) Reflection survey profiles suggest that main body of the young volcano exists between pelagic sediment and oceanic basement. 5) Magnetotelluric soundings (MT) experiment using ocean bottom electromagnetometers (OBEM) implies the maximum electric conductivity observed around 100-130 km depth. In addition to these results, some seismic activities (M3 - 5) were observed in this area by world network of seismic stations for this quarter century. As a whole, petit spot volcanism is quite unique and highly remarkable phenomenon.

Falling Evaporating Bodies as a Clue to Outline the Structure of the ? Pictoris Young Planetary System  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Transient redshifted events monitored in the spectrum of ? Pictoris have been interpreted for many years as resulting from the evaporation of numerous comet-like bodies in the vicinity of this stars. This motivated the investigation of dynamical mechanisms responsible for the origin of these star-grazing comets. Among various ideas, a model involving mean-motion resonances with a jovian-like planet was proposed a few years ago and applied to the ? Pictoris case (H. Beust and A. Morbidelli 1996 Icarus120, 358-370). According to this model, the 4:1 and possibly the 3:1 mean-motion resonances are able to generate numerous star-grazers from an initially dynamically cold disk of planetesimals. In this paper, detailed numerical simulations of this dynamical process over a large number of particles are presented, showing in particular that the model is robust toward the presence of additional planets around the star. The question of the evaporation rate of the comet-like bodies is also investigated, showing that, in order to explain the observed spectral events, the comet-like bodies should be larger than 10-20 km, rather than 1 km as previously conjectured. This in turn makes it possible to estimate the typical density of the planetesimal disk required to explain the observed spectral phenomena, i.e., ˜10 8 bodies per astronomic unit in the resonance at 4 AU from the star. Apart from the main redshifted spectral events, a few blueshifted events were observed over the past few years. These spectral events are clearly distinct from the main redshifted ones and cannot be considered as outliers, although they are far less numerous. In the simple framework of the mean-motion resonance model, these events, which should correspond to bodies moving on differently oriented orbits, should not be expected. We show that assuming the presence of a terrestrial-like planet, well inside the orbit of the jovian planet, may generate these additional events. Close encounters with a terrestrial planet may extract some particles from the resonance, and bring some of them to star-grazing orbits, but with a different orbital orientation, so that they generate blueshifted events. The question of the refilling of the resonance is investigated. Two basic models may be invoked: First, collisions among planetesimals may replenish the resonance. This appears to be possible, but the mass density of the planetesimal disk in the vicinity of the resonance needs to be ˜10 M? per astronomic unit or more, which is hardly realistic. Planetary migration may be a second possible mechanism. A migrating resonance can capture new bodies as it sweeps the disk. We show that this model is realistic only if the migration velocity is high enough, i.e., compatible with models invoking a tidal interaction with the disk, but the reality of this mechanism in the ? Pictoris disk must be questioned.

DORT and TORT workshop -- Outline for presentation for splicing with TORSED and TORSET  

SciTech Connect

This paper addresses the problem of solving a problem which is larger than can be accommodated by the computer system at your disposal. This can result from two constrains: (1) The available memory of the machine is too small to contain the problem. (2) Individual files may be too large to store on-line. It also addresses the problem of what to do when you want to alter only a subset of a solution space of a larger problem and don`t want to rerun the entire problem. These problems can be solved by splicing with TORSED AND TORSET. If the basic shape of your problem is cylindrical and azimuthally uniform, with only a small region of three-dimensionality, then the best splicing method is the TORSED -- DORT to TORT splice. However, if there is no part of the problem which is azimuthally constant, then one might want to consider a TORT to TORT splice. Both methods are discussed here.

Transmuted Labs  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This article describes a first year high school chemistry lab program which its author has developed over the past fifteen years. It features laboratory exercises that have have been altered ("transmuted") so that students may be evaluated on the accuracy of their work. For example, a traditional lab may ask that students determine the amount of product obtained from a reaction and compare it to theoretical value. In its transmuted form this lab would require that students either deduce the mass of a reactant from a measured mass of product, or perhaps predict the mass of product from a known mass of reactant. The author reports that lab exercises transmuted in this way work well with beginning students because the labs 1) make immediate sense to scientifically unsophisticated students, 2) challenge students to do their best work, 3) motivate by enlisting students' desires for social recognition, and 4) appeal to students' love of games and play.

Advanced LabVIEW Labs  

SciTech Connect

In the world of computer-based data acquisition and control, the graphical interface program LabVIEW from National Instruments is so ubiquitous that in many ways it has almost become the laboratory standard. To date, there have been approximately fifteen books concerning LabVIEW, but Professor Essick's treatise takes on a completely different tack than all of the previous discussions. In the more standard treatments of the ways and wherefores of LabVIEW such as LabVIEW Graphical Programming: Practical Applications in Instrumentation and Control by Gary W. Johnson (McGraw Hill, NY 1997), the emphasis has been instructing the reader how to program LabVIEW to create a Virtual Instrument (VI) on the computer for interfacing to a particular instruments. LabVIEW is written in G a graphical programming language developed by National Instruments. In the past the emphasis has been on training the experimenter to learn G . Without going into details here, G incorporates the usual loops, arithmetic expressions, etc., found in many programming languages, but in an icon (graphical) environment. The net result being that LabVIEW contains all of the standard methods needed for interfacing to instruments, data acquisition, data analysis, graphics, and also methodology to incorporate programs written in other languages into LabVIEW. Historically, according to Professor Essick, he developed a series of experiments for an upper division laboratory course for computer-based instrumentation. His observation was that while many students had the necessary background in computer programming languages, there were students who had virtually no concept about writing a computer program let alone a computer- based interfacing program. Thus the beginnings of a concept for not only teaching computer- based instrumentation techniques, but aiso a method for the beginner to experience writing a com- puter program. Professor Essick saw LabVIEW as the perfect environment in which to teach computer-based research skills. With this goal in mind, he has succeeded admirably. Advanced LabVIEW Labs presents a series of chapters devoted to not only introducing the reader to LabVIEW, but also to the concepts necessary for writing a successful computer pro- gram. Each chapter is an assignment for the student and is suitable for a ten week course. The first topic introduces the while loop and waveform chart VI'S.

Advanced LabVIEW Labs  

SciTech Connect

In the world of computer-based data acquisition and control, the graphical interface program LabVIEW from National Instruments is so ubiquitous that in many ways it has almost become the laboratory standard. To date, there have been approximately fifteen books concerning LabVIEW, but Professor Essick's treatise takes on a completely different tack than all of the previous discussions. In the more standard treatments of the ways and wherefores of LabVIEW such as LabVIEW Graphical Programming: Practical Applications in Instrumentation and Control by Gary W. Johnson (McGraw Hill, NY 1997), the emphasis has been instructing the reader how to program LabVIEW to create a Virtual Instrument (VI) on the computer for interfacing to a particular instruments. LabVIEW is written in "G" a graphical programming language developed by National Instruments. In the past the emphasis has been on training the experimenter to learn "G". Without going into details here, "G" incorporates the usual loops, arithmetic expressions, etc., found in many programming languages, but in an icon (graphical) environment. The net result being that LabVIEW contains all of the standard methods needed for interfacing to instruments, data acquisition, data analysis, graphics, and also methodology to incorporate programs written in other languages into LabVIEW. Historically, according to Professor Essick, he developed a series of experiments for an upper division laboratory course for computer-based instrumentation. His observation was that while many students had the necessary background in computer programming languages, there were students who had virtually no concept about writing a computer program let alone a computer- based interfacing program. Thus the beginnings of a concept for not only teaching computer- based instrumentation techniques, but aiso a method for the beginner to experience writing a com- puter program. Professor Essick saw LabVIEW as the "perfect environment in which to teach computer-based research skills." With this goal in mind, he has succeeded admirably. Advanced LabVIEW Labs presents a series of chapters devoted to not only introducing the reader to LabVIEW, but also to the concepts necessary for writing a successful computer pro- gram. Each chapter is an assignment for the student and is suitable for a ten week course. The first topic introduces the while loop and waveform chart VI'S. After learning how to launch LabVIEW, the student then leans how to use LabVIEW functions such as sine and cosine. The beauty of thk and subsequent chapters, the student is introduced immediately to computer-based instruction by learning how to display the results in graph form on the screen. At each point along the way, the student is not only introduced to another LabVIEW operation, but also to such subjects as spread sheets for data storage, numerical integration, Fourier transformations', curve fitting algorithms, etc. The last few chapters conclude with the purpose of the learning module, and that is, com- puter-based instrumentation. Computer-based laboratory projects such as analog-to-digital con- version, digitizing oscilloscopes treated. Advanced Lab VIEW Labs finishes with a treatment on GPIB interfacing and finally, the student is asked to create an operating VI for temperature con- trol. This is an excellent text, not only as an treatise on LabVIEW but also as an introduction to computer programming logic. All programmers, who are struggling to not only learning how interface computers to instruments, but also trying understand top down programming and other programming language techniques, should add Advanced Lab-VIEW Labs to their computer library.

Unique Approach to Hydraulic Characterization at an Underground Lab  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Sanford Underground Laboratory is the interim lab for the future federally funded DUSEL (Deep Underground Science and Engineering Lab). The Sanford Lab took over the abandoned Homestake mine in Lead, SD. Over three hundred miles of drift, extending 8,000 feet below the surface, are now being used to house experiments in disciplines including physics, geology, and biology. The lab is situated in Precambrian metamorphic rocks intersected by Tertiary dike swarms. Three relevant geologic units are defined within the Precambrian rock system; all of which are interpreted to be metamorphosed igneous and sedimentary deposits. The Sanford Lab provides a unique environment to study several aspects of hydrogeology and hydrology; including geochemistry, hydraulic systems in fractured aquifers, and fluvial activity within mine workings. Aquifer characteristics housing the mine workings’ is important to define for future and present research at the underground lab. Outlined here is a unique approach to defining the matrix porosity within the fractured aquifer system. The Homestake mine was abandoned and the pump system keeping the mine dry was turned off in 2003. Over the course of the next five years the water level rose 3470 feet. Oxidation of iron from the water left a red staining on the submerged rocks. Hydrological observations are conducted on different levels throughout the Homestake facility as the water levels are lowered. Isolated air pockets and long stretches of unstained areas along the roof of drifts have been observed, together with less frequent occurrences of seepages. These observations are documented to supplement hydrological monitoring and testing with sensors. The sizes and widths of the trapped air pockets are indications of low permeability values and can be used to estimate the degree of heterogeneity along drifts. It is noted that sections of long stretches of trapped air have more delayed drainages, consistent with low effective permeability values for the metamorphic rocks. The air pockets reveal a distinctive difference in size between the geologic units; the average size of the air pockets associated with different geologic units differs by an order of magnitude. The infrequent seepage observations are also consistent with the hydrological setting of this facility with low inflow rates.

Paleotempestology Lab  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This introductory lab introduces students to stratigraphic correlation and the dating of geologic materials. Students analyze sediment cores derived from coastal marshes that preserve a record of past hurricane activity. The task is for students to assess the past frequency and intensity of hurricane activity in the region from which the cores were derived. In teams, students log the sedimentological variations in the cores. Then each individual student builds stratigraphic columns for each core. Based on their stratigraphic columns, students try to preliminarily correlate hurricane events between the cores. In small teams, they then collectively decide to "purchase" absolute dates using a fixed budget to test their preliminary correlations and arrive at an overall interpretation of the hurricane activity in the region.

PubMed

Radioiodine ((131)I) treatment for nontoxic and toxic multinodular goiter (MNG) is an alternative therapeutic procedure used especially for patients with contraindication for surgery. Several studies have been conducted in recent years assessing the use of recombinant human TSH (rhTSH) in increasing (131)I uptake in MNGs. This procedure also decreases the activity level of the administered (131)I, changes the distribution of (131)I in the thyroid, lowers the absorption dose, and dramatically reduces the volume of the goiter (50-75% of the baseline volume). A major disadvantage, however, is the induction of hypothyroidism in a relatively large number of patients. A transient increase in thyroid volume and tenderness was noted in the first week of treatment. Also a short period (2-4 weeks) of hyperthyroidism was observed in most patients with potential consequences particularly for the elderly. Still, there has been no evidence to date that the adverse effects outweigh the positive results of using rhTSH. The use of rhTSH in benign goiter disease has not yet been approved worldwide, but its positive activity in MNG is remarkable and promising. PMID:18491237

Potential feedbacks of northern wetlands on climate change: An outline of an approach to predict climate-change impact  

SciTech Connect

Atmospheric concentrations of many greenhouse gases, in particular carbon dioxide and methane, are rapidly increasing from preindustrial levels. This paper explores the potential feedback from northern wetlands, particularly with regard to carbon dioxide and methane flux, to climate change. Although progress has been made in determining current trace gas fluxes from major biomass, the authors believe that a mechanistic approach is necessary to predict the direct and indirect feedbacks between climate and northern wetlands. Relevant areas covered in the article include the following: feedback mechanisms; carbon and nutrient mineralization; the kinetics of carbon and nutrient mineralization; methane oxidation and the role of plants; field dynamics of gases in a meadow and bog in Minnesota; and extrapolating to larger scales. 80 refs., 8 figs., 1 tab.

ILAS for stratospheric ozone layer monitoring: Outline of data processing (version 3. 00 and 3. 10) and validation experiments  

SciTech Connect

The Improved Limb Atmospheric Spectrometer (ILAS) developed by the Environment Agency of Japan was successfully flown in space on board the sun synchronous polar-orbiting satellite ADEOS (Advanced Earth Observing Satellite) on August 17, 1996. ADEOS, with ILAS and other sensors on board, performed successfully until June 30, 1997, after which an unexpected sudden failure of the ADEOS satellite solar battery system prevented further measurements. ILAS made over 6,700 measurements of the stratospheric ozone layer with the solar occultation technique, producing vertical profiles of ozone, other ozone-chemistry related gases, aerosol extinction coefficients, temperature, and pressure in the high-latitude stratosphere. The ILAS data processing software so far used was Version 3.00, and algorithm tests are currently being made for the improved Version 3.10 software which includes correction of nongas contribution due to aerosols and polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs). The present paper describes mainly the status of data processing and validation and the results of validation and comparison with other independent data sets.

Joint reconstruction of galaxy clusters from gravitational lensing and thermal gas. I. Outline of a non-parametric method  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present a method of estimating the lensing potential from massive galaxy clusters for given observational X-ray data. The concepts developed and applied in this work can be easily combined with other techniques to infer the lensing potential, e.g. weak gravitational lensing or galaxy kinematics, to obtain an overall best-fit model for the lensing potential. After elaborating on the physical details and assumptions the method is based on, we explain how the numerical algorithm itself is implemented with a Richardson-Lucy algorithm as a central part. Our reconstruction method is tested on simulated galaxy clusters with a spherically symmetric NFW density profile filled with gas in hydrostatic equilibrium. We describe in detail how these simulated observational data sets are created and how they need to be fed into our algorithm. We tested the robustness of the algorithm against small parameter changes and estimate the quality of the reconstructed lensing potentials. As it turns out, we achieve a very high degree of accuracy in reconstructing the lensing potential. The statistical errors remain below 2.0%, whereas the systematical error does not exceed 1.0%.

Origin and propagation of the slow wave in the canine stomach: the outlines of a gastric conduction system.  

PubMed

Slow waves are known to originate orally in the stomach and to propagate toward the antrum, but the exact location of the pacemaker and the precise pattern of propagation have not yet been studied. Using assemblies of 240 extracellular electrodes, simultaneous recordings of electrical activity were made on the fundus, corpus, and antrum in open abdominal anesthetized dogs. The signals were analyzed off-line, pathways of slow wave propagation were reconstructed, and slow wave velocities and amplitudes were measured. The gastric pacemaker is located in the upper part of the fundus, along the greater curvature. Extracellularly recorded slow waves in the pacemaker area exhibited large amplitudes (1.8 +/- 1.0 mV) and rapid velocities (1.5 +/- 0.9 cm/s), whereas propagation in the remainder of the fundus and in the corpus was slow (0.5 +/- 0.2 cm/s) with low-amplitude waveforms (0.8 +/- 0.5 mV). In the antrum, slow wave propagation was fast (1.5 +/- 0.6 cm/s) with large amplitude deflections (2.0 +/- 1.3 mV). Two areas were identified where slow waves did not propagate, the first in the oral medial fundus and the second distal in the antrum. Finally, recordings from the entire ventral surface revealed the presence of three to five simultaneously propagating slow waves. High resolution mapping of the origin and propagation of the slow wave in the canine stomach revealed areas of high amplitude and rapid velocity, areas with fractionated low amplitude and low velocity, and areas with no propagation; all these components together constitute the elements of a gastric conduction system.

Geologic setting, genesis and transformation of sulfide deposits in the northern part of Khetri copper belt, Rajasthan, India — an outline  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The present study is confined to the northern part of the Khetri copper belt that extends for about 100 km in northern Rajasthan. Mineralization is more or less strata-bound and is confined to the garnetiferous chlorite schist and banded amphibolite quartzite, occurring towards the middle of the Proterozoic Delhi Supergroup. Preserved sedimentary features and re-estimation of the composition of the pre-metamorphic rocks suggest that the latter were deposited in shallow marine environment characterized by tidal activity. Cordierite-orthoamphibole-cummingtonite rock occurring in the neighbourhood of the ores is discussed, and is suggested to be isochemically metamorphosed sediment. The rocks together with the ores were deformed in two phases and metamorphosed in two progressive and one retrogressive events of metamorphism. Study of the host rocks suggests that the maximum temperature and pressure attained during metamorphism are respectively 550 600°C and < 5.5 kb. Principal ore minerals in Madan Kudan are chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite and locally magnetite. In Kolihan these are chalcophyrite, pyrrhotite and cubanite. Subordinate phases are sphalerite, ilmenite, arsenopyrite, mackinawite, molybdenite, cobaltite and pentlandite. The last two are very rare. Gangue minerals comprise quartz, chlorite, garnet, amphiboles, biotite, scapolite, plagioclase and graphite. The ores are metamorphosed at temperatures > 491°C. Sulfide assemblages are explained in terms of fS 2 during metamorphism. Co-folding of the ore zone with the host rocks, confinement of the ores to the carbonaceous pelites or semi-pelitic rocks, strata-bound and locally even stratiform nature of the orebodies, lack of finite ‘wall rock alteration’, metamorphism of the ores in the thermal range similar to that for the host rocks, absence of spatial and temporal relationship with the granitic rocks of the region led the authors to conclude that the entire mineralization was originally sedimentary-diagenetic. Any loss of primitive features and development of incongruency are due to subsequent deformation and metamorphism to which the ores and their hosts were together subjected.

An outline of the role of anti-Candida antibodies within the context of passive immunization and protection from candidiasis.

The role played by antibodies (Abs) in the anticandidal defense has long been a matter of controversy, mostly due to the past inability to clearly define antigen specificity, the relationship between the type of immune response within the different settings of experimental and human candidiasis and, last but not least, a misunderstanding about the role of T helper cell in cell-mediated versus the humoral immunity. Contributory was also the lack of precise identification of virulence traits of the fungus which are the best candidates for a protective Ab response. In recent years, an impressive amount of experimental evidence, and also some clinical proof, have been generated which assign to Abs of defined specificity an important role in the anticandidal defense both at systemic and mucosal sites. Paradigmatic among them, Abs against defined virulence factors such as adhesins or aspartyl-proteinase enzymes, or against critical viability molecules such as beta-glucan, have been detected or generated which hold great promise for immunotherapeutic interventions in humans.

A Rationale and Outline for an Undergraduate Course on the Philosophy and History of Science for Life Science Students.  

PubMed

There are compelling reasons for teaching a philosophy of science course to undergraduate life science students. The main reason is to help them understand that modern science is not based upon a single, consistent philosophical system; nor is it based upon common sense, or a method, set of rules or formulas that can be used to make unerring predictions. Rather, science is a dynamic process that is constantly being modified and refined to reflect and encompass an ever-expanding set of hypotheses, observations, and theories. To illustrate these points, we developed a course that examined the history and philosophical underpinnings of modern science, and we discussed famous experiments that challenged the prevailing norm and led to Kuhnian revolutions in scientific thought. Building upon this knowledge, students investigated how different philosophical systems address controversial social issues in the biological sciences. They examined the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools, the implications of legalized abortion and physician-assisted suicide, the potential impact of DNA fingerprinting on human rights and racism, the promise and pitfalls of stem cell research, and the neurobiological basis of consciousness and its relevance to mental health therapies and the animal rights movement. We believe undergraduate life science students should be exposed to these issues and have an opportunity to develop informed opinions about them before they graduate from college. Exploration of such topics will help them become better prepared for the inevitable public debates that they will face as science educators, researchers, and leaders of society. PMID:21289866

Causes of insufficient quality of middle-term geomagnetic storms prognosis and outline of problem-solving  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Modern investigations of space weather and revelation of the geomagnetic storms' nature are mainly aimed at examination of such bright events like CMEs or CIRs coming, and, correspond-ingly, severe geomagnetic storms prediction. Methods of forecast and detection of CME-like conditions in solar wind work very well for short-term storm prognosis, but meet with failure at the attempts of their alert time extension from 1 day to several days. The middle-term prognoses of all intensities geomagnetic storms have low quality, because they are based on the prediction of solar wind conditions typical for exciting of severe storms only. Statistical investigations show that predicting combination "high solar wind velocity + strong negative IMF Bz-component" successfully works only for strong geomagnetic storms beginning, but weak and mild storms do not obey this rule. Analysis of several lists of geomagnetic storms (list of geomagnetic storms with sudden com-mencement, McPherron's list of magnetic storms in the space age, and list of major geomagnetic storms) allows formulate additional rule: "sharp solar wind density increase + consequent neg-ative IMF Bz = weak or moderate geomagnetic storm". The studies show that the solar wind density plays more significant geoeffective role than it was previously assumed. Sharp density increase and consequent negative Bz (sometimes Bz turns negative several hour after density jump) can produce weak, moderate and even strong magnetic storms without any significant changes in the solar wind velocity. This fact could be explained by prevailing of "loading-unloading mechanism" of magnetospheric energy transfer from the solar wind in the most of cases of mixed type solar wind streams' interaction with magnetosphere over the "directly driven magnetosphere" mechanism, which is more appropriate for explanation of solar wind-magnetosphere interaction for the streams like ICMEs and CIRs .

Great earthquakes and slow slip events along the Sagami trough and outline of the Kanto Asperity Project  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Kanto region is one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world. Complicated plate configurations are due to T-T-T type triple junction, island arc-island arc collision zone, and very shallow angle between axis of the Sagami trough and subducting direction. Great earthquakes along the Sagami trough have repeatedly occurred. The 1703 Genroku and 1923 (Taisho) Kanto earthquakes caused severe damages in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Intriguingly slow slip events have also repeatedly occurred in an area adjacent to the asperities of the great earthquakes, off Boso peninsula (e.g., Ozawa et al 2007). In the cases of the Nankai and Cascadia subduction zones, slow slip events occur at deeper levels than the asperity, in a transition zone between the asperity and a region of steady slip. In contrast, slow slip events in the Kanto region have occurred at relatively shallow depths, at the same level as the asperity, raising the possibility of friction controlled by different conditions to those (temperature and pressure) encountered at Nankai and Cascadia. We focus on three different types of seismic events occurring repeatedly at the almost same depth of the seismogenic zone along the Sagami trough (5-20 km) (1) The 1923 M~7.9 Taisho earthquake, located in Sagami Bay. Maximum slip is about 6 m, the recurrence interval is 200-400 yr, and the coupling rate is 80-100% (“coupling rates” = “slip amounts during earthquakes or slow-slip events” / [“rate of motion of the Philippine Sea Plate” - “recurrence interval”]) . (2) The 1703 M~8.2 Genroku earthquake, located in Sagami Bay, but also extending to the southern part of Boso Peninsula. Maximum slip is 15-20 m, the recurrence interval is ~2000 yr, and the coupling rate at the southern part of the Boso Peninsula is 10-30%. (3) Boso slow-slip events, located southeast of Boso Peninsula. Maximum slip is 15-20 cm over ~10 days, the recurrence interval is 5-6 yr, and the coupling rate is 70-100%. Proposals of the Kanto Asperity Project (KAP) have been submitted to the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) to investigate the three patches. The scientific objectives are Objective 1: To understand why the three different types of events occur side by side at almost same depth (in same P-T conditions), and Objective 2: To establish realistic earthquake-generation models using data on each step of the process of natural earthquakes. The KAP consists of three research programs for these objectives. In Program A (not submitted yet), we will propose shallow drilling, coring, and logging at several sites to get input materials on the Philippine sea plate and to measure stress in wide area. In Program B, we propose long-term monitoring with wide area network to observe 2-3 cycles of slow slip events and to verify a model of earthquake generation cycle through model of slow slip event cycle. In Program C, we propose coring and logging plate boundaries in asperity to measure physical properties (particularly frictional parameters) and pore pressures to establish a realistic earthquake cycle model.
