BBC News: Lords Reform  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

On January 19, 1999, Tony Blair's government announced the most radical restructuring of the House of Lords, the UK's second chamber, in its 600-year existence. Honoring the Labour Party election manifesto, the Bill will remove all 759 hereditary peers, those with an automatic right to sit by virtue of birthright, within the year. In the meantime, a Royal Commission will formulate proposals for a new upper house and issue a report by December 31, 1999. A fully reformed chamber is expected to be in place by 2002, and in the meantime, publicly nominated "People's Peers" may sit in the Lords in addition to the politically appointed Life Peers. The BBC Special Report outlines this momentous constitutional change in Britain, and offers analysis, commentary, and the latest news.

Law Lords Decision in Pinochet Case  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

On Wednesday, the UK's highest court refused to grant General Pinochet immunity from prosecution for the second time. The court ruled six-to-one that he could face extradition to Spain where he would be charged with torture, conspiracy to torture, and conspiracy to murder. Pinochet was originally arrested in October on an extradition warrant from Spain, and the following month, the Law Lords ruled that he was not immune to prosecution for acts committed as a head of state. However, for the first time in British legal history, that decision was set aside after conflict of interest charges were levelled against one of the Lords who was connected to Amnesty International. Despite this second ruling, the case is far from settled, as the extradition proceedings themselves remain, and it is expected that Pinochet's lawyers will drag the case out for months, or even years if possible. In the meantime, the former dictator remains under house arrest in England. Users can read the full text of the Law Lords' lengthy decision at this site, provided by the UK Stationery Office.

Ozone profiles above Palmer Station, Antarctica  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center/Wallops Flight Facility conducted a series of 52 balloon-borne measurements of vertical ozone profiles over the National Science Foundation (NSF) research facility at Palmer Station, Antarctica (64 deg 46 S, 64 deg 3 W) between August 9 and October 24, 1987. High resolution measurements were made from ground level to an average of 10 mb. While much variation was seen in the profile amounts of ozone, it is clear that a progressive depletion of ozone occurred during the measurement period, with maximum depletion taking place in the 17 to 19 km altitude region. Ozone partial pressures dropped by about 95 percent in this region. Shown here are plotted time dependences of ozone amounts observed at 17 km and at arbitrarily selected altitudes below (13 km) and above (24 km) the region of maximum depletion. Ozone partial pressure at 17 km is about 150nb in early August, and has decreased to less than 10nb in the minimums in October. The loss rate is of the order of 1.5 percent/day. In summary, a progressive depletion in stratospheric ozone over Palmer Station was observed from August to October, 1987. Maximum depletion occurred in the 17 to 19 km range, and amounted to 95 percent. Total ozone overburden decreased by up to 50 percent during the same period.

The Palmer Drought Severity Index: limitations and assumptions.  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The structure of the Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), which is perhaps the most widely used regional index of drought, is examined. The PDSI addresses two of the most elusive properties of droughts: their intensity and their beginning and ending times. Under certain conditions, the PDSI values are very sensitive to the criteria for ending an 'established' drought and precipitation during a month can have a very large effect on the PDSI values for several previous months. -from Author

New geophysical models of Palmer Deep crustal structure  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 2004 (9th) and 2006 (11th) Ukrainian Antarctic expeditions acquired new geoelectrical data (‘short-impulse electromagnetic field formation' - FSPEF, and ‘vertical electric-resonance sounding' - VERS) along profiles across Drake Passage and along Bransfield Strait, Antarctic Peninsula, with the aim of studying the crustal structure of these features down to depths of >30 km. The sounding on this depth in Antarctic region was the first experience of deep modification of the VERS method using. Modelling experience of deep crustal structure by geophysical data with VERS method shows that there is a possibility to investigate the fluid regime, tectonic disturbances and crush zones in basement and local places of submarine volcanic activity too. This technology also gives a possibility to efficiently divide the cross-section on separate stratigraphic subsections in the sounding site and to determine its depth with high accuracy (Levashov et al., 2003; Levashov et al., 2007). Geophysical surveys enabled to yield new data set with information about Drake Passage and Palmer Deep inner crustal structure on broad continental margin of Antarctic Peninsula. Palmer Deep is located on continental (Pacific) shelf of the Antarctic Peninsula near Anvers Island and consists of three deep basins with depths from 1200? to 1500?. These basins were part of glacial outlet during glaciation's period (Rebesco et al., 1998). Geoelectrical models of Palmer Deep crustal structure along three profiles were built on the sounding data in separate points of continental shelf. Heterogeneity of Palmer Deep earth's crust obtained from VERS data modelling testified to processes of tectonic transformations of internal shelf structures. Tectonic factor explains some conformities of the most recent glaciomarine sediments and glacial streams forming during recent shelf-wide glaciations. New information about sediment distribution and inner crustal structure has an important value for searching and prospecting the hydrocarbon deposits of Palmer Deep region. These geophysical data are of particular importance for understanding of evolution and geodynamic processes at continental margin of Antarctic Peninsula. References 1.

New variants of the Palmer drought scheme capable of integrated utility  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Palmer drought model that was developed half a century ago has often been used for monitoring and decision making. It has gained wide-spread familiarity and acceptance, together with numerous complaints, criticisms and improvements. This study first introduces a recent variation of Palmer's model, i.e. the standardized Palmer drought index (SPDI) as a hybrid of a Palmer drought index (PI) and a standardized drought index (SI). Then, a more complicated methodology is employed to propose an SPDI-based joint drought index (SPDI-JDI), which is also physically based on the Palmer drought model and is a multivariate SI in nature. Using meteorological observations from twelve WMO gauges from all around the globe, empirical and parametric copula-based approaches are adopted and compared for the construction of SPDI-JDI. The findings in this study indicate that the SPDI-JDI derived from parametric copulas can provide an overall measure of the joint probability-based drought status by combining the probabilistic properties and dependence structure of multi-temporal scale marginals of SPDI. Meanwhile, the SPDI-JDI shows high coherence and correlation with individual PIs and performs well in drought detection when compared to the integration of Palmer drought severity index, Palmer modified drought index, Palmer hydrologic drought index and Palmer Z index as well as to the U.S. Drought Monitor observations. Taken together, new variations of the SPDI-JDI and/or SPDI are expected to bring new vigor and vitality into Palmer's drought model, making it more up-to-date for drought monitoring and prediction.

Applying the Palmer Drought Severity Index to regional climate models  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Drought is one of the climate states that are most difficult to analyse scientifically. Amongst other things it depends on (lack of) precipitation, evapotranspiration, and water holding capacity of the soil at a given place, and how the two first parameters vary with time. One of the most used parameters to evaluate the occurrence and severity of drought is the Palmer Drought Severity Index. We have calculated the Self-Calibrated Palmer Drought Severity Index (SC-PDSI) of the output of some of the regional climate models included in the Ensembles data base covering the area of Europe, in the case where the climate models are forced by the real weather in the period 1960 to 2000. The climate models provide precipitation data as well as the data needed to calculate the potential evapotranspiration in an unbroken time series on a regular grid in the area covered by the regional climate model. To calculate the evapotranspiration we use the Penman-Monteith equation following the guidelines of FAO of the United Nations. The regularity of the output of the climate models makes the output ideal for determining the time-varying SC-PDSI over the entire model area and the entire period. We have compared the simulations of the occurrence of meteorological drought made by the SC-PDSI with independent data of hydrological drought, which has become available with the drought analyses, that has been made as part of the WATCH project. This allows us to evaluate if the predictions of the SC-PDSI are coherent with some of the direct observations of drought, and thus if the SC-PDSI calculated from climate model data gives a good representation of the real occurrence of droughts.

Lord Byron's physician: John William Polidori on somnambulism.  

PubMed

John William Polidori (1795-1821) was the Edinburgh-trained physician hired by Lord Byron to accompany him to Switzerland, where he participated in the story-telling event proposed by Byron that led, with Polidori's help, to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Although those interested in English literature might also remember Polidori as the author of The Vampyre, one of the first extended works of fiction about vampires, his earlier interest in somnambulism and trance states is only beginning to be appreciated. Even more than students of Romantic literature, historians of science and medicine seem little aware of what Polidori had written about oneirodynia, a synonym for somnambulism, and how his thoughts from 1815 about such activities reflected the changing medical zeitgeist at this time. This chapter examines Polidori's medical thesis in a neuroscience context and compares what he wrote to the writings of several other physicians who were fascinated by nocturnal wanderings, their causes, their manifestations, and their possible treatments.

The snow samples contained (from high to low mass concentration) total organic carbon, chloride, inorganic carbon, sodium, sulfate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, fluoride, ammonium, and nitrate, excluding hydrogen and hydroxide. The pH of these samples ranged between 4.0-6.2. The relatively low nitrate and relatively high sulfate concentrations found in our samples are consistent with the results of other studies for this region of Antarctica. The ions and pH do not appear to favor a particular wind direction during this period. The total deposition of sulfate and flouride via snowfall between 10 January and 10 February is conservatively estimated to be 4.78 and 1.3 kg km -2, respectively.

Lord Rayleigh: John William Strutt, third Baron Rayleigh.  

PubMed

John William Strutt, first son of the second Baron Rayleigh, was born on November 12, 1842. He was a sickly boy, so his schooling was sporadic. Nevertheless, he graduated first in his year at Cambridge and subsequently was a Fellow of Trinity College until his marriage in 1871. His father died in 1873, and he succeeded to the title third Baron Rayleigh. He converted the stable block of his country house, Terling Place, into a laboratory. In 1879, he moved back to Cambridge as Professor of Experimental Physics, but he returned to Terling in 1884. He published The Theory of Sound in 1877/1878 and, in his lifetime, 466 scientific articles. He received the 1904 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of argon and made numerous seminal contributions to scientific progress. In the field of acoustics, he studied scattering, the diffraction limit, surface waves, resonance phenomena, reciprocity, streaming, radiation force, cavitation, relaxation, and binaural perception. He received many honors, was President of the Royal Society, one of the founding members of the Order of Merit, and Chancellor of Cambridge University. He also was interested in psychical research. Lord Rayleigh died on June 30, 1919. PMID:17375827

The House of Lords report on complementary medicine: a summary.  

PubMed

The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee reviewed a large amount of oral and written evidence from a wide variety of sources in order to scrutinize CAM. In their published report, they propose that CAM be subdivided into three groups for operational purposes. They note that public satisfaction with CAM is high and use of CAM is increasing. Evidence is required that CAM has an effect above and beyond placebo, and once this is provided the public should have access to it and its potential benefits. Public interest is not protected by the current lack of regulation of CAM, which should be organized in an appropriate way by and for each therapy. Acupuncture and herbal medicine should be subject to statutory regulation, and possibly non-medical homeopathy. The regulatory status of herbal medicines is particularly unsatisfactory, and should be clarified and enforced in law. Training for CAM professionals should be standardized and independently accredited and, for many, should include basic biomedical science. Registered conventional health professionals should become more familiar with CAM. Research into CAM requires the same rigour as is required of conventional medicine, and recommendations are made as to how research could be encouraged, including pump-priming by the National Health Service and Medical Research Council. The provision of information to the public and health professionals is inadequate and recommendations are made on how this should be improved. Those working in the best regulated CAM professions should work towards integration with conventional medicine. PMID:11264968

The M51 mystery: Lord Rosse, Robinson, South and the discovery of spiral structure in 1845  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In April 1845 Lord Rosse discovered the spiral structure of M51 with his 72-inch reflector at Birr Castle. Already in March the new telescope had been pointed at the object in Canes Venatici, later nicknamed the 'Whirlpool Nebula'. Two experienced astronomers were present: Sir James South and the Reverend Thomas Romney Robin-son. The problem is that there is no record that they noticed the spiral structure, even though it was immediately seen by Lord Rosse the next month. The solution presented here is based on evidentiary facts, highlighting the nineteenth century astronomical praxis. Focal points are bias, fantasy and a sometimes fatal conspiracy of eye and brain.

Palmer Quest: A Feasible Nuclear Fission "Vision Mission" to the Mars Polar Caps  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

We are engaged in a NASA Vision Mission study, called Palmer Quest after the American Antarctic explorer Nathaniel Palmer, to assess the presence of life and evaluate the habitability of the basal domain of the Mars polar caps. We address this goal through four objectives: 1. Determine the presence of amino acids, nutrients, and geochemical heterogeneity in the ice sheet. 2. Quantify and characterize the provenance of the amino acids in Mars ice. 3. Assess the stratification of outcropped units for indications of habitable zones. 4. Determine the accumulation of ice, mineralogic material, and amino acids in Mars ice caps over the present epoch. Because of the defined scientific goal for the vision mission, the Palmer Quest focus is astrobiological; however, the results of the study make us optimistic that aggressive multi-platform in-situ missions that address a wide range of objectives, such as climate change, can be supported by variations of the approach used on this mission.

Uplift of Lord Howe Rise during the Late Paleogene: Constraints from Micropaleontological Proxies  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lord Howe Rise is located east of Australia and northwest of New Zealand within a series of basins and ridges in the Southwest Pacific Ocean that formed during the Cretaceous breakup of Gondwana. Coring of Lord Howe Rise during Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) Legs 21 and 90 recovered pelagic sediments of Late Cretaceous to Cenozoic age. Neogene sequences in the region contain few hiatuses, whereas the Paleogene interval records an Eocene/Oligocene unconformity of varying duration originally interpreted to reflect major oceanographic circulation changes resulting from the development of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. Recent work based primarily on stratal geometries and seismic reflection facies suggests that the unconformity may be related to uplift of the rise to at or near sea level as a result of subduction processes in the New Zealand region. To test this hypothesis, we collected high-resolution samples across the unconformity at three sites cored on Lord Howe Rise (DSDP Sites 207, 208, and 592) and one site in the adjacent New Caledonia Basin (DSDP Site 206) to examine changes in paleoenvironment across the unconformity. Biostratigraphic results based on calcareous nannofossils and planktic and benthic foraminifera indicate that the hiatus is of varying duration and at one site is a distinctly different age. At Sites 206, 207, and 208, the Eocene/Oligocene boundary is missing, with sediments below the unconformity of Middle Eocene age and sediments above the unconformity of Early Oligocene (Sites 206 and 208) to Middle Miocene (Site 207) age. In contrast, Site 592 records a complete Eocene/Oligocene boundary sequence, with the hiatus spanning the late Early Oligocene to Early Miocene. Sediments below the unconformity at this site are similar in age to those deposited directly above the unconformity in the New Caledonia Basin and on northern Lord Howe Rise. Paleodepths based on benthic foraminifera assemblages suggest some shallowing across the unconformity at all sites, which is consistent with tectonic activity in the region during the late Paleogene. The New Caledonia Basin and northern Lord Howe Rise sites show ~1000 m of shallowing across the unconformity, despite being at significantly different water depths today. Southern Lord Howe Rise Site 207 records the greatest change in paleodepth, with more than 1000 m of shallowing. At Site 592, only approximately 500 m of shallowing occurred across the unconformity. These results suggest tectonic activity in the region near the Eocene/Oligocene transition, in addition to the oceanographic changes that occurred at that time.

Antibiotic resistance among bacteria isolated from seawater and penguin fecal samples collected near Palmer Station, Antarctica.  

PubMed

Antibiotic resistance in aquatic bacteria has increased steadily as a consequence of the widespread use of antibiotics, but practice and international treaty should have limited antibiotic contamination in Antarctica. We estimated antibiotic resistance in microorganisms isolated from the Antarctic marine waters and a penguin rookery, for 2 reasons: (i) as a measure of human impact and (ii) as a potential "snapshot" of the preantibiotic world. Samples were taken at 4 established sampling sites near Palmer Station, which is situated at the southern end of the Palmer Archipelago (64 degrees 10'S, 61 degrees 50'W). Sites were chosen to provide different potentials for human contamination. Forty 50 mL samples of seawater were collected and colony-forming units (CFU)/mL were determined at 6 and 20 degrees C. For this study, presumed psychrophiles (growth at 6 degrees C) were assumed to be native to Antarctic waters, whereas presumed mesophiles (growth at 20 degrees C but not at 6 degrees C) were taken to represent introduced organisms. The 20-6 degrees C CFU/mL ratio was used as a measure of the relative impact to the ecosystem of presumably introduced organisms. This ratio was highest at the site nearest to Palmer Station and decreased with distance from it, suggesting that human presence has impacted the natural microbial flora of the site. The frequency of resistance to 5 common antibiotics was determined in each group of isolates. Overall drug resistance was higher among the presumed mesophiles than the presumed psychrophiles and increased with proximity to Palmer Station, with the presumed mesophiles showing higher frequencies of single and multiple drug resistance than the psychrophile population. The frequency of multidrug resistance followed the same pattern. It appears that multidrug resistance is low among native Antarctic bacteria but is increased by human habitation. PMID:19190699

Effects of Thermal Exposure on the Optical Properties of LORD Aeroglaze A276  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A lunar outpost will require electrical energy. One potential source is fission surface power where heat from a reactor is converted into electricity utilizing an energy conversion system, and waste heat will need to be rejected from the system. The Second Generation Radiator Demonstration Unit is a technology demonstration unit leading towards operational radiators. To approximate the infrared emittance of the lunar outpost radiators, a low-cost coating compatible with the test conditions was sought. LORD Aeroglaze A276 has a similar emittance, but its performance in air and vacuum at the desired operating temperatures was unknown. This study determined that the emittance remained above 0.86 for all conditions tested and that LORD Aeroglaze A276 is a suitable surrogate coating for the Second Generation Radiator Demonstration Unit.

Observation of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos from lunar orbit: LORD space experiment  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The problem of detecting highest-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos in the Universe is reviewed. Nowadays, there becomes clear that observation of these particles requires approaches based on novel principles. Projects based on orbital radio detectors for particles of energies above the CZK cut-off are discussed. We imply the registration of coherent Cherenkov radio emission produced by cascades of most energetic particles in radio-transparent lunar regolith. The Luna-Glob space mission proposed for launching in the near future involves the Lunar Orbital Radio Detector (LORD). The feasibility of LORD space instrument to detect radio signals from cascades initiated by ultrahigh-energy particles interacting with lunar regolith is examined. The comprehensive Monte Carlo calculations were carried out within the energy range of 10 (20) -10 (25) eV with the account for physical properties of the Moon such as its density, the lunar-regolith radiation length, the radio-wave absorption length, the refraction index, and the orbital altitude of a lunar satellite. We may expect that the LORD space experiment will surpass in its apertures and capabilities the majority of well-known current and proposed experiments dealing with the detection of both ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos. The design of the LORD space instrument and its scientific potentialities in registration of low-intense cosmic-ray particle fluxes above the GZK cut-off up to 10 (25) eV is discussed as well. The designed LORD module (including an antenna system, amplifiers, and a data acquisition system) now is under construction. The LORD space experiment will make it possible to obtain important information on the highest-energy particles in the Universe, to verify modern models for the origin and the propagation of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos. Successful completion of the LORD experiment will permit to consider the next step of the program, namely, a multi-satellite lunar systems to increase the statistics and the accuracy of the experiment. Opportunities and prospects of a multi-satellite system for observation of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos are also investigated. In addition, possibilities of future missions to Jovian satellites are analyzed, insofar as the largest ice planets of the Solar System (Ganymede and Europe) can be considered as convenient targets for registration of ultrahigh-energy particles by orbiting radio detectors. The expected results are compared to those for the lunar target. The conclusion is made that within the Solar System, there are no objects with better registration efficiency for ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos that can be utilized in space experiments of as an alternative to the future space mission Luna-Glob with the LORD orbital radio detector.

Continuation of the New England Orogen, Australia, beneath the Queensland Plateau and Lord Howe rise  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Greywacke, argillite, greyschist and hypabyssal igneous rocks have been obtained from an Ocean Drilling Program core on the Queensland Plateau and from xenoliths in a volcanic breccia dredged from the crest of the Lord Howe Rise. Low to intermediate detrital quartz contents, 260-240 Ma K-Ar ages, and only moderately radiogenic Sr and Nd isotope compositions, suggest a correlation with the New England Orogen of eastern Australia, rather than with Australia's Lachlan Orogen or other adjacent geological provinces. Our results indicate that the New England Orogen terranes continue towards New Zealand at least as far as the southern Lord Howe Rise. The projected offshore boundaries of the major east Australian orogens are now known with more confidence, and do not appear to require any major cross-orogen offsets.

Abundance, diversity, and feeding behavior of coral reef butterflyfishes at Lord Howe Island.  

PubMed

Endemic species are assumed to have a high risk of extinction because their restricted geographic range is often associated with low abundance and high ecological specialization. This study examines the abundance of Chaetodon butterflyfishes at Lord Howe Island in the south-west Pacific, and compares interspecific differences in local abundance to the feeding behavior and geographic range of these species. Contrary to expected correlations between abundance and geographic range, the single most abundant species of butterflyfish was Chaetodon tricinctus, which is endemic to Lord Howe Island and adjacent reefs; densities of C. tricinctus (14.1 ± 2.1 SE fish per 200m(2)) were >3 times higher than the next most abundant butterflyfish (Chaetodon melannotus), and even more abundant than many other geographically widespread species. Dietary breadth for the five dominant butterflyfishes at Lord Howe Island was weakly and generally negative correlated with abundance. The endemic C. tricinctus was a distinct outlier in this relationship, though our extensive feeding observations suggest some issues with the measurements of dietary breadth for this species. Field observations revealed that all bites taken on benthic substrates by C. tricinctus were from scleractinian corals, but adults rarely, if ever, took bites from the benthos, suggesting that they may be feeding nocturnally and/or using mid-water prey, such as plankton. Alternatively, the energetic demands of C. tricinctus may be fundamentally different to other coral-feeding butterflyfishes.

Asteroid Lightcurve Analysis at CS3-Palmer Divide Station: 2014 January-March  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lightcurves for 40 main-belt asteroids were obtained at the Center for Solar System Studies-Palmer Divide Station (CS3-PDS) from 2014 January through March. The majority of the objects were members of the Hungaria group/family. In many cases, the observations were follow-up to previous apparitions to check for the possibility of undiscovered satellites or to provide additional data for spin axis and shape modeling. One Hungaria, 5175 Ables, showed indications of a satellite in the form of having two periods. However, there were no decisive observations of mutual events due to a satellite. This makes the asteroid a possible, but not probable, binary.

``Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey-Stuff:'' Teaching with a Time Lord  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

November 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Doctor Who, the longest-running science fiction television series in history (790 episodes spanning 1963-1989 and 2005-present). The revival of the BBC series in 2005 has been both critically acclaimed and commercially successful. The travels of the 900-plus-year-old Time Lord and his companions introduce viewers to the past, present, and future of our planet and many others. While the series is obviously fictional, there is also a surprising amount of fairly accurate science as well.

Effects of temperature anomalies on the Palmer Drought Severity Index in the central United States  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The purpose of this study is to improve our understanding of temperature and precipitation effects on the Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI). Both theoretical and observational analyses were applied to separate and compare temperature and precipitation effects on PDSI. The results showed that because of the dependence of PDSI on the 'climatologically appropriate rainfall', which is a function of time and varies with surface air temperature, the PDSI can be equally affected by temperature and precipitation, when both have similar magnitudes of anomalies. Calculations using observational data further illustrated the temperature influence on PDSI in different climate regions in the central United States. The temperature effect on PDSI complicates the usage of the index in interpreting precipitation anomalies and its application in inferring precipitation variations, particularly from reconstructed PDSI.

Bursts of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) by dissipating clouds at Palmer Station, Antarctica  

SciTech Connect

The authors present here a case study of cloud-mediated production of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) recorded at Palmer Station (64{degrees}46`S, 64{degrees}05`W), Antarctica on 20 Jan 1994. Four instances of CCN bursts occured on January 17, 19, 20 and February 7, 1994 when cloud base descended to the surface and dissipated under prevailing meteorlogical conditions. The most spectacular event ocurred on January 20 when the CCN concentration was enhanced by a factor of four at 0.025% supersaturation (with respect to water) compared to the prevent concentration. At 1.25% supersaturation, the corresponding enhancement was by a factor of seven. This indicated a larger production of aerosol particles in smaller size ranges. The elevated CCN concentrations were measured for over fifteen hours. The CCN activity spectrum during the event resembled the ones that are typical of previous measurements in the urban plumes of St. Louis and Denver. 30 refs., 3 figs.

In addition, data for 1355 Magoeba from 2006 were re-analyzed. The periods derived from the 2006 and 2009 apparitions cannot be reconciled. The solution based on the 2009 data has been adopted as the one more likely correct. For four of the asteroids, 2001 Einstein, 3086 Kalbaugh, 4736 Johnwood, and 5841 Stone, the 2009 data were combined with those from earlier apparitions to derive spin axis and shape models.

The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life (by Parker J. Palmer)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Most of us would willingly - perhaps even passionately - tackle the question of what we should teach our students. Similarly, we are likely to engage in a conversation about how we teach and our preferences for organizing classroom time and structures. Although the question of why we teach may be raised less often (and perhaps with a hint of sarcasm), this too is a question to which most can offer a thoughtful response. An entirely different matter, however, is the question of who is the person teaching. This who involves the inner realms of one's heart, mind, and soul. How does our identity affect the teaching and learning processes? As we teach, what paths are we following intellectually, emotionally, or even spiritually? How do these paths influence our relationship to our content and to our students? With an engaging honesty, Parker Palmer pursues these questions in The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of A Teacher's Life. At the outset he points out (p 4): I have no quarrel with the what or how or why questions - except when they are posed as the only questions worth asking. All of them can yield important insights into teaching and learning. But none of them opens up the territory I want to explore in this book: the inner landscape of the teaching self. One might well question why those of us teaching chemistry should be interested in examining ourselves as part of the teaching equation. Isn't scientific knowledge supposed to be as objective as we can make it? Isn't it better for us to check our emotional or intellectual baggage at the classroom door, rather than to taint the content with our biases? Or perhaps more directly stated, is it not more practical and a better use of our time to simply deal with the realities of the day-to-day classroom issues? Admittedly these are fair questions. However, to become stuck on them is to miss the opportunities for reflection and growth as teachers that Palmer's book offers. Simply put, people teach. Without putting the human factor into the teaching equation, you miss one of the key variables. In the early chapters, Palmer offers the readers simple statements to entice them to delve more deeply into his later discussions. "Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher," or, "Bad teachers distance themselves from the subject they are teaching - and in the process, from their students," or ultimately, "Only one resource is at my immediate command: my identity, my selfhood, my sense of this 'I' who teaches - without which I have no sense of the 'Thou' who learns." Readers can expect to find both ideas and a personal honesty on Palmer's part that inspires one to accept human limitations and evokes a gentle chuckle at our good days...and at our bad ones as well. Palmer has strong credentials to write about the self as teacher. In recent years, he has been a visiting faculty member at Beloit College, Berea College, and Georgetown University. Over past few decades, he has written extensively on the teaching and learning process, including To Know as We Are Known: Education as a Spiritual Journey (1983). He holds a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley and has lived and taught in a variety of settings and communities around the globe. Woven through his writings is a sense of both the human and the spiritual dimensions of being a teacher. Thus, those who most might appreciate his reflections are comfortable with language drawn from spiritual traditions. Palmer spent a number of years as teacher and writer-in-residence at Pendle Hill, a Quaker community in Pennsylvania, and the respect and appreciation that he holds for silence and reflection come through in his writing. Expect to find no religious dogma or prescriptions in what he offers. What might those of us who teach chemistry expect to gain from this book? One possibility offered at the start is his examination of fear as a part of human nature that affects our teaching. Chapter 3 is entitled "A Cul

Long-term clinical and radiological results of the Lord total hip prosthesis. A prospective study.  

PubMed

We enrolled 98 patients (107 hips) with a mean age of 47 years (SD 8.6) into a prospective study of the Madreporic Lord THR; 34 hips had primary and 73 secondary osteoarthritis. After ten years, the survival rate using revision as the endpoint for failure was 70% (+/-9) for the cup and 98% (+/-0.3) for the stem. The combined clinical and radiological survival rates were 46% (+/-11) and 81% (+/-10), respectively. Osteoporosis due to stress-shielding was observed in the proximal femur. Hips with radiologically dense bone postoperatively showed the most pronounced bone loss. We recommend continued radiological follow-up of patients with this type of implant to allow revision to be performed before there is severe bony destruction of the pelvis. PMID:8951001

Relativity in Transylvania and Patusan: Finding the roots of Einstein's theories of relativity in "Dracula" and "Lord Jim"  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This thesis investigates the similarities in the study of time and space in literature and science during the modern period. Specifically, it focuses on the portrayal of time and space within Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897) and Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim (1899-1900), and compares the ideas presented with those later scientifically formulated by Albert Einstein in his special and general theories of relativity (1905-1915). Although both novels precede Einstein's theories, they reveal advanced complex ideas of time and space very similar to those later argued by the iconic physicist. These ideas follow a linear progression including a sense of temporal dissonance, the search for a communal sense of the present, the awareness and expansion of the individual's sense of the present, and the effect of mass on surrounding space. This approach enhances readings of Dracula and Lord Jim, illuminating the fascination with highly refined notions of time and space within modern European culture.

Stochastic forecasting of agricultural drought based on Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Drought roots in natural climate variability over mid- to long-term time periods and often causes serious water and environmental consequences for human societies and ecosystems. Due to the random nature of contributing factors, occurrence and severity of droughts may be treated by stochastic techniques. Early indication of droughts can help to activate the corresponding mitigation strategies and measures in advance. Therefore, drought forecasting comes to the aid of decision makers for planning and management of water resource systems. In arid and semi-arid regions, drought negative effects on crops may be reduced by storing sufficient water from available sources. As a result, it is quite important to forecast the drought duration in the growing season in terms of irrigation scheduling. In this study, duration of agriculture droughts, quantified by the Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), is forecasted through the application of linear stochastic models for Mashhad, Khorasan-Razavi province, northwest of Iran. Study of the temporal characteristics of droughts indicated that the region is affected by severe and, more or less, prolonged droughts from 1971 to 2004. Results showed that over 64% of the studied period, droughts prevailed that increased in duration and severity in recent years. A SARIMA (Seasonal Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average) model was developed to predict drought duration and was found to provide acceptable results up to 2 months ahead.

Joint spatiotemporal variability of global sea surface temperatures and global Palmer drought severity index values  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Dominant modes of individual and joint variability in global sea surface temperatures (SST) and global Palmer drought severity index (PDSI) values for the twentieth century are identified through a multivariate frequency domain singular value decomposition. This analysis indicates that a secular trend and variability related to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) are the dominant modes of variance shared among the global datasets. For the SST data the secular trend corresponds to a positive trend in Indian Ocean and South Atlantic SSTs, and a negative trend in North Pacific and North Atlantic SSTs. The ENSO reconstruction shows a strong signal in the tropical Pacific, North Pacific, and Indian Ocean regions. For the PDSI data, the secular trend reconstruction shows high amplitudes over central Africa including the Sahel, whereas the regions with strong ENSO amplitudes in PDSI are the southwestern and northwestern United States, South Africa, northeastern Brazil, central Africa, the Indian subcontinent, and Australia. An additional significant frequency, multidecadal variability, is identified for the Northern Hemisphere. This multidecadal frequency appears to be related to the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation (AMO). The multidecadal frequency is statistically significant in the Northern Hemisphere SST data, but is statistically nonsignificant in the PDSI data.

Lightcurves for 42 asteroids were obtained at the Palmer Divide Observatory (PDO) from 2011 September to December: 92 Undina, 413 Edburga, 802 Epyaxa, 971 Alsatia, 1987 Kaplan, 3260 Vizbor, 3880 Kaiserman, 4172 Rochefort, 4217 Engelhardt, 4713 Steel, 4898 Nishiizumi, 5384 Changjiangcun, 5426 Sharp, 5427 Jensmartin, 6029 Edithrand, (6382) 1988 EL, 6485 Wendeesther, 6646 Churanta, 7829 Jaroff, (12453) 1996 YY, (16681) 1994 EV7, (20699) 1999 VJ144, (30019) 2000 DD, (32753) 1981 EB14, (46037) 2001 DF33, (57276) 2001 QP139, (59962) 1999 RL234, (63633) 2001 QR84, (71734) 2000 LX9, (84890) 2003 NP9, (96253) 1995 BY1, (105844) 2000 SH160, (106620) 2000 WL124, (114086) 2002 VG36, (114367) 2002 XA89, (134507) 1999 CR142, (138666) 2000 RX96, (178734) 2000 TB2, (203095), (303013) 2003 WC125, and 2000 YA. Two asteroids showed indications of being a binary asteroid. For the Hungaria asteroid 4217 Engelhardt, two, possibly three, potential mutual events (occultations and/or eclipses) were observed. No mutual events were observed for the Phocaea asteroid (46037) 2001 DF33 but a strong secondary period was found in the data with the lightcurve similar to that of a tidallylocked, slightly elongated satellite. New values for absolute magnitude (H) were found for several Hungaria asteroids using either derived or assumed values of G. These H values were compared against those used in the WISE mission to determine diameters and albedos. In all cases where the WISE results featured an unusually high albedo for the asteroid in question, the new value of H resulted in an albedo that was significantly lower and closer to the expected value for type E asteroids, which are likely members of the Hungaria collisional family.

Characteristics and trends in various forms of the Palmer Drought Severity Index during 1900-2008  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) has been widely used to study aridity changes in modern and past climates. Efforts to address its major problems have led to new variants of the PDSI, such as the self-calibrating PDSI (sc_PDSI) and PDSI using improved formulations for potential evapotranspiration (PE), such as the Penman-Monteith equation (PE_pm) instead of the Thornthwaite equation (PE_th). Here I compare and evaluate four forms of the PDSI, namely, the PDSI with PE_th (PDSI_th) and PE_pm (PDSI_pm) and the sc_PDSI with PE_th (sc_PDSI_th) and PE_pm (sc_PDSI_pm) calculated using available climate data from 1850 to 2008. Our results confirm previous findings that the choice of the PE only has small effects on both the PDSI and sc_PDSI for the 20th century climate, and the self-calibration reduces the value range slightly and makes the sc_PDSI more comparable spatially than the original PDSI. However, the histograms of the sc_PDSI are still non-Gaussian at many locations, and all four forms of the PDSI show similar correlations with observed monthly soil moisture (r = 0.4-0.8) in North America and Eurasia, with historical yearly streamflow data (r = 0.4-0.9) over most of the world's largest river basins, and with GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellite-observed water storage changes (r = 0.4-0.8) over most land areas. All the four forms of the PDSI show widespread drying over Africa, East and South Asia, and other areas from 1950 to 2008, and most of this drying is due to recent warming. The global percentage of dry areas has increased by about 1.74% (of global land area) per decade from 1950 to 2008. The use of the Penman-Monteith PE and self-calibrating PDSI only slightly reduces the drying trend seen in the original PDSI. The percentages of dry and wet areas over the global land area and six select regions are anticorrelated (r = -0.5 to -0.7), but their long-term trends during the 20th century do not cancel each other, with the trend for the dry area often predominating over that for the wet area, resulting in upward trends during the 20th century for the areas under extreme (i.e., dry or wet) conditions for the global land as a whole (˜1.27% per decade) and the United States, western Europe, Australia, Sahel, East Asia, and southern Africa. The recent drying trends are qualitatively consistent with other analyses and model predictions, which suggest more severe drying in the coming decades.

LORD-Q: a long-run real-time PCR-based DNA-damage quantification method for nuclear and mitochondrial genome analysis  

PubMed Central

DNA damage is tightly associated with various biological and pathological processes, such as aging and tumorigenesis. Although detection of DNA damage is attracting increasing attention, only a limited number of methods are available to quantify DNA lesions, and these techniques are tedious or only detect global DNA damage. In this study, we present a high-sensitivity long-run real-time PCR technique for DNA-damage quantification (LORD-Q) in both the mitochondrial and nuclear genome. While most conventional methods are of low-sensitivity or restricted to abundant mitochondrial DNA samples, we established a protocol that enables the accurate sequence-specific quantification of DNA damage in >3-kb probes for any mitochondrial or nuclear DNA sequence. In order to validate the sensitivity of this method, we compared LORD-Q with a previously published qPCR-based method and the standard single-cell gel electrophoresis assay, demonstrating a superior performance of LORD-Q. Exemplarily, we monitored induction of DNA damage and repair processes in human induced pluripotent stem cells and isogenic fibroblasts. Our results suggest that LORD-Q provides a sequence-specific and precise method to quantify DNA damage, thereby allowing the high-throughput assessment of DNA repair, genotoxicity screening and various other processes for a wide range of life science applications.

Medical doctors as the captain of a ship: an analysis of medical students’ book reports on Joseph Conrad’s “Lord Jim”  

PubMed Central

Purpose: In South Korean ferry disaster in 2014, the captain abandoned the ship with passengers including high school students still aboard. We noticed the resemblance of abandoning the ship with passengers still aboard the ferry (named the Sewol) and the ship Patna, which was full of pilgrims, in Joseph Conrad’s novel “Lord Jim.” The aim of this study is to see how medical students think about the role of a medical doctor as a captain of a ship by analyzing book reports on Conrad’s “Lord Jim.” Methods: Participants included 49 third-year medical students. Their book reports were analyzed. Results: If placed in the same situation as the character of Jim, 24 students of the 49 respondents answered that they would stay with the passengers, while 18 students indicated they would escape from the ship with the crew. Most of the students thought the role of a doctor in the medical field was like that of a ‘captain.’ The medical students reported that they wanted to be a doctor who is responsible for his or her patients, highly moral, warm-hearted, honest, and with high self-esteem. Conclusion: In conclusion, we found that “Lord Jim” induced the virtue of ‘responsibility’ from the medical students. Consequently, “Lord Jim” could be good teaching material for medical humanities.

Exploring the Components of the Palmer Drought Indices Using the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River Basin as a Case Study  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Water resources are vital to sustaining ecosystem services, energy and food supplies, and industrial processes. Competition for water resources is likely to intensify as the population increases, economy grows, and land develops. Drought events intensify water scarcity, and recent events in many countries, including the United States (US), Great Britain, and Sri Lanka, highlight how important it is to provide meaningful context to water planners and managers. Palmer's drought indices - Z Index, Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), and Palmer Hydrological Drought Index (PHDI) - are widely used and accepted by scientists and policy makers in the US to understand drought and manage water resources. Drought index values at the climate division scale are available, but a transparent calculation tool at multiple spatial and temporal scales is not readily available. Moreover, a close look at the development of the indices reveals a number of subjective calculation methods and regionally biased factors. For researchers studying areas with overlapping climate divisions, performing international research, or working with limited, site-specific data, the ability to control and modify calculations is desired. This research presents a transparent tool for calculating Palmer's drought indices. We use the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River Basin, located in the southeastern US, as our case study to explore and evaluate the sensitivity of Palmer's indices to temperature and precipitation anomalies, calibration periods, and other index components. The ACF has suffered two major droughts (2007 and 2012) in the past five years and supports multiple demand-side sectors - agriculture in Georgia, public and recreational supply for the Atlanta metropolitan area, hydroelectric power in Alabama, tri-state navigation, and ecosystem services. We show how the PDSI varies in response to changes in precipitation, calibration period, and a number of other variables. The aim of the work is to make this easily used tool available to help professionals who work toward facilitating water management and reducing water conflicts in the future.

Lord Justice of Appeal John Fletcher Moulton and explosives production in World War I: 'the mathematical mind triumphant'.  

PubMed

At the end of November 1914 Lord Moulton (1844-1921) became the director of explosives production in the War Office. A 70-year-old jurist may seem an extraordinary choice, but he was an extraordinary man. He was Senior Wrangler at Cambridge, was elected to the Royal Society for research on electricity, and learned about chemistry as a barrister for dye and explosives manufacturers. He assembled an able team of administrators and chemists who designed and managed mammoth new national explosives factories. They could not make enough TNT and picric acid from obtainable precursors, so Moulton persuaded the reluctant armed services to adopt mixtures of TNT and ammonium nitrate, which enabled them to make even more than was needed. In mid-1915 they moved to the new Ministry of Munitions, where they also became responsible for fertilizers and poison gases. In 1917 they produced explosives at a higher rate than was attained in World War II. PMID:24921109

Comparative study of Ksharasutra suturing and Lord's anal dilatation in the management of Parikartika (chronic fissure-in-ano)  

PubMed Central

Background: Parikartika resembles fissure-in-ano which is very common among all ano-rectal disorders. In Ayurvedic texts, Parikartika is described as a complication of Vamana and Virechana as well as complication of Atisara. Ksharasutra was proved successful in the management of fistula-in-ano, piles, and there is a need to try its efficacy in fissure-in-ano. Aim: To evaluate the role of Ksharasutra suturing (KSS) in fissure bed in chronic fissure-in-ano. Materials and Methods: Total 100 patients of chronic fissure-in-ano were selected and randomly divided into two groups (50 in each group). In group-A, patients were undergone by KSS; while in patients of Group-B Lord's anal dilatation followed by KSS was done under spinal anesthesia. The KSS was done once and after slough out of Ksharasutra, the wound was treated for 4 weeks and assessment of the result was done on the basis of gradation adopted. Results: The pain relief on 14th day in Group-A was 86% while in Group-B 100% was observed. As on 7th day in Group-A, oozing was stopped in 68% patients, while in Group-B, oozing was stopped in 82% patients. On 21st day, Group-B showed more healing (85%) as compared to Group-A (69%). In this study 68% of patients were cured. Conclusion: In Group-B (KSS with Lord's anal dilatation) patients were cured early as compared to patients of Group-A (KSS alone).

Composition, distribution and regional affinities of the deepwater ichthyofauna of the Lord Howe Rise and Norfolk Ridge, south-west Pacific Ocean  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Fishes were collected from seamounts and insular slopes of the northern Tasman and southern Coral Seas in the environs of the Reinga Ridge, Norfolk Ridge and Lord Howe Rise, at depths ranging from 49 to 1927 m. A total of 348 demersal fish species in 99 families, which were collected from 135 samples taken with a variety of sampling gear, greatly improved taxonomic knowledge of this poorly known area. Twenty five percent of the fish sampled are considered to be potentially new species. Relatively high levels of regional endemicity and diversity are attributed to geological history, and the complexity of contemporary climatology, hydrography and habitat diversity of the region. Fish assemblages were highly structured by depth, but across regions, deep-water fish faunas showed stronger taxonomic affinities than shallower faunas. Although less pronounced, spatial differences pointed towards distinct faunas between the southern and northern parts of the area. The distribution patterns and affinities to regions adjacent to the survey area indicate that (1) the fish fauna on the Lord Howe Rise near Lord Howe Island and further north is distinct from the rest of the survey regions, and exhibits eastern Australian and northern (Coral Sea) affinities, (2) the Northern Norfolk Ridge fauna is distinct from the other regions and has strong affinities with New Caledonia, (3) fishes on the Southern Norfolk Ridge, Western Norfolk Ridge and Lord Howe Plateau have more shared species compared to the other regions indicating a high level of connectedness and affinities with New Zealand fauna, and (4) some species have a wide distribution along the Norfolk Ridge providing a possible deepwater pathway between New Caledonia and New Zealand. Survey data is also useful for assessing the regions' conservation values by identifying rare or unusual components of the fauna, those with very limited distributions, those with low productivity that may be vulnerable to human disturbance (fishing, mining), and for defining bioregions.

Who is the Lord of the Rings in the Zeeman-spin-orbit Saga: Majorana, Dirac or Lifshitz?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Zeeman, spin-orbit fields and interactions can be tuned in the context of ultra-cold atoms and allow for the visitation of several different phases. For systems with zero Zeeman field, the evolution from BCS to BEC superfluidity in the presence of spin-orbit effects is only a crossover [1]. In contrast, for finite Zeeman fields, spin-orbit coupling induces a triplet component in the order parameter that produces nodes in the quasiparticle excitation spectrum leading to bulk topological phase transitions of the Lifshitz type [2]. A fully gapped phase also exists, where a crossover from indirect to direct gap occurs. For spin-orbit couplings with equal Rashba and Dresselhaus strengths the nodal quasi-particles are Dirac fermions that live at and in the vicinity of rings of nodes. Transitions from and to nodal phases can occur via the emergence of zero-mode Majorana fermions at phase boundaries, where rings of nodes of Dirac fermions annihilate [3]. Lastly, we characterize different phases via spectroscopic and thermodynamic properties and conclude that Lifshitz is the ``Lord of the Rings.'' [4pt] [1] Li Han, C. A. R.

Deep-sea bio-physical variables as surrogates for biological assemblages, an example from the Lord Howe Rise  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Little is known about diversity patterns of biological assemblages in deep-sea environments, primarily because sampling deep-sea biota over vast areas is time consuming, difficult, and costly. In contrast, physical mapping capabilities are increasing rapidly, and are becoming more cost-effective. Consequently, the growing need to manage and conserve marine resources, particularly deep-sea areas that are sensitive to anthropogenic disturbance and change, is leading the promotion of physical data as surrogates to predict biological assemblages. However, few studies have directly examined the predictive ability of these surrogates. The physical environment and biological assemblages were surveyed for two adjacent areas - the western flank of Lord Howe Rise (LHR) and the Gifford Guyot - spanning combined water depths of 250-2200 m depth on the northern part of the LHR, in the Coral Sea. Multibeam acoustic surveys were used to generate large-scale geomorphic classification maps that were superimposed over the study area. Forty towed-video stations were deployed across the area capturing 32 h of seabed video, 6229 still photographs, that generated 3413 seabed characterisations of physical and biological variables. In addition, sediment and biological samples were collected from 36 stations across the area. The northern Lord Howe Rise was characterised by diverse but sparsely distributed faunas for both the vast soft-sediment environments as well as the discrete rock outcrops. Substratum type and depth were the main variables correlated with benthic assemblage composition. Soft-sediments were characterised by low to moderate levels of bioturbation, while rocky outcrops supported diverse but sparse assemblages of suspension feeding invertebrates, such as cold-water corals and sponges which in turn supported epifauna, dominated by ophiuroids and crinoids. While deep environments of the LHR flank and lower slopes of the Gifford Guyot were characterised by bioturbation with high occurrences of trails, burrows, and mounds, evidence for bioturbation was significantly less on the upper sections of Gifford Guyot, with mostly trails on the more sediment starved environments. The seamount summit also supported a variety of taxa, such as benthic ctenophores and rock-associated fishes that were not recorded in the deeper basin habitats. Physical characteristics of the seabed, particularly geomorphology, were good predictors of biological assemblage composition and percent cover of key taxa. Of the nine geomorphic classes assessed in this study, six predicted different physical habitats that supported distinct biological assemblages. However, other classes that were defined by spatial features (e.g., valleys, seamount dunes) where surficial physical variables were not unique, provided little predictive power of biological assemblages, but rather had characteristics that were shared with adjacent/surrounding geomorphic classes. Given the growing need to use surrogates in the management and conservation of marine environments, these results are promising. However, our findings suggest that there is a pressing need for careful testing and validation of surrogates, such as geomorphic classes, before classification schemes can be deemed effective and employed as a management tool to predict seabed habitats and their biological assemblages.

Mesozoic diapirs at the eastern edge of Lord Howe Rise (southwest Pacific): ZoNéCo 5 cruiseMise en évidence de diapirs mésozoïques sur la bordure orientale de la ride de Lord Howe (Sud-Ouest Pacifique) : campagne ZoNéCo 5  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The objective of the ZoNéCo 5 cruise on R/V L'Atalante was the bathymetrical and geological survey of the eastern edge of the Lord Howe Rise, a key structure between New Caledonia and the eastern margin of Australia. The acquired data better defines the relationships between the New Caledonia Basin and the Lord Howe Rise in an area which is the southern prolongation of the Fairway basin. This basin contains a thick sedimentary sequence ranging from Lower Cretaceous to the present day. This basin extends on more than 70?000 km 2. The main result of the cruise was the discovery of a Pre-Cretaceous or Cretaceous series including salt or mud diapirs. At about 600 m below the sea floor and coincident with the distribution of diapirs, an extensive BSR (Bottom Simulating Reflector) suggests the existence of a large gas hydrates deposit.

PREFACE: Celebrating 20 years of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter—in honour of Richard Palmer Celebrating 20 years of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter—in honour of Richard Palmer  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter in 1989. The journal was formed from the merger of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics and Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics which had separated in 1971. In the 20 years since its launch, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter has more than doubled in size, while raising standards. Indeed, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter has become one of the leading scientific journals for our field. This could not have occurred without great leadership at the top. No one has been more responsible for this growth in both size and quality than our Senior Publisher, Richard Palmer. Richard first started work at IOP in March 1971 as an Editorial Assistant with J. Phys. B After a few months, he transferred to J. Phys.C The following year, the Assistant Editor of J. Phys. C, Malcolm Haines, left suddenly in order to work on his family vineyard in France, and Richard stepped into the breach. In those days, external editors had a much more hands-on role in IOP Publishing and he had to travel to Harwell to be interviewed by Alan Lidiard, the Honorary Editor of J. Phys. C, before being given the job of Assistant Editor permanently. Since J. Phys. C and J. Phys. F re-merged to form Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Richard gradually shed his other journal responsibilities, except for Reports on Progress in Physics, to build up Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. He has worked closely with four Editors-in-Chief of J. Phys. C and five of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. When Richard announced his retirement this past winter, we met it with a great deal of both happiness and sadness. Of course, we are happy that he is going to be allowed to enjoy his retirement, but we remain very sad to lose such a valuable member of our team, especially the one who had provided the heart and soul of the journal over its 20 years. We will be able to rely upon the team which Richard ably trained as we go into the future. The Executive Board decided to do this special issue, both to commemorate the 20th year of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter and to honour Richard for his long years of service to IOP Publishing and Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. This issue is dedicated to Richard for his many years of work and friendship with the journal board that has seen a great many changes over the years. This issue covers a very wide range of topics, since we approached all current and past members of the various boards of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter in seeking papers for this special issue. The response has been very positive and this will be one of our larger special issues. The desire to honour Richard is widespread among these various boards, so that we have been almost overwhelmed with submissions, although many who wished to contribute could not because of other obligations. We hope that you, the readership, will enjoy these articles.

Drought in the U.S. Great Plains (1980-2012): A sensitivity study using different methods for estimating potential evapotranspiration in the Palmer Drought Severity Index  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) has been widely used to evaluate drought conditions since it was developed in 1965. In the original formulation of the PDSI, potential evapotranspiration (PET) was estimated using the Thornthwaite equation. This study evaluates how using more physically based approaches for estimating PET influences the depiction of drought conditions over the U.S. Great Plains from 1980 to 2012. Both the Penman-Monteith equation and the two-source PET model are compared to the original Thornthwaite-based PDSI. The differences in PET between the three methods are much larger than the resulting differences in the PDSI. Results show that the original PDSI has a stronger drying trend than versions of PDSI that use more physically based methods of estimating PET. Spatially, all three versions of the PDSI show similar distributions of drying and wetting trends; however, there are significant regional variations that appear to be associated with land cover. PDSI and observed soil moisture in the top 1 m are moderately correlated (correlation coefficient is ~0.5) over the U.S. Great Plains, except in Texas (correlation coefficient is ~0.3). Although all three approaches result in a similar area-averaged PDSI for the U.S. Great Plains, there are large differences in the area affected by drought, especially during extreme drought events.

Composition and distribution of deep-sea benthic invertebrate megafauna on the Lord Howe Rise and Norfolk Ridge, southwest Pacific Ocean  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The deep-sea biodiversity of the Lord Howe Rise and Norfolk Ridge - two complex submarine features that extend in a north-south direction either side of a deep basin within the northern Tasman Sea and southern Coral Sea - was sampled in 2003 for the first time on a broad regional scale. The total of 1313 megabenthic invertebrate species from 17 higher order taxa collected between 100 and 1800 m depths showed faunal diversity and novelty was high. Only 256 of these species were named, and 10% of these were described as a result of this survey; 78% are un-named and believed to be mostly new species. Of the 1253 species included in quantitative analyses, most appeared to be rare - 85% were only found once. This indicates intra-regional endemism may be high, but undersampling is also likely. Species accumulation curves confirm that many additional species remain to be collected. There was high regional-scale spatial heterogeneity in species distribution patterns which appeared to be influenced by hydrographic patterns and feature-scale topography, and to a lesser extent by seabed type. Depth and oxygen concentration (correlated with depth) had most influence on distribution patterns of fauna, with assemblages identified from three depth-zones: 100-400 m (deep continental shelf and shelf edge), 400-700 m (upper continental slope) and >700 m (mid-continental slope). In the shallowest depth zone, there were north-south (latitudinal) patterns in invertebrate assemblages that appeared to be influenced by water mass distribution. Species overlap was higher in the south than the north, probably due to the Tasman Front forming a hydrographic connection between the southern parts of the Rise and the Ridge at shallower depths. At depths >700 m, the absence of a latitudinal pattern in assemblage structure was attributed to the continuity of Antarctic Intermediate Water in the study area. Differentiation of two assemblages in sled samples from the >700 m depth zone, as well as some patterns of diversity of large sessile fauna between sub-regions within the study area, suggested a relationship with bottom type but this was not fully analysed. While providing a major increase in scientific knowledge of marine biodiversity in deep waters of the Coral and Tasman Seas, these results also highlighted the paucity of biogeographical knowledge that exists for the area. Some science advances needed to inform national and international conservation plans currently under development are identified. They include taxonomic standardisation at a regional-scale (Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia) for informative higher level taxa, and some additional surveys of selected areas and seabed features, including off northeastern Australia.

Viscosity Coefficient Curve Fits for Ionized Gas Species Grant Palmer  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Viscosity coefficient curve fits for neutral gas species are available from many sources. Many do a good job of reproducing experimental and computational chemistry data. The curve fits are usually expressed as a function of temperature only. This is consistent with the governing equations used to derive an expression for the neutral species viscosity coefficient. Ionized species pose a more complicated problem. They are subject to electrostatic as well as intermolecular forces. The electrostatic forces are affected by a shielding phenomenon where electrons shield the electrostatic forces of positively charged ions beyond a certain distance. The viscosity coefficient for an ionized gas species is a function of both temperature and local electron number density. Currently available curve fits for ionized gas species, such as those presented by Gupta/Yos, are a function of temperature only. What they did was to assume an electron number density. The problem is that the electron number density they assumed was unrealistically high. The purpose of this paper is two-fold. First, the proper expression for determining the viscosity coefficient of an ionized species as a function of both temperature and electron number density will be presented. Then curve fit coefficients will be developed using the more realistic assumption of an equilibrium electron number density. The results will be compared against previous curve fits and against highly accurate computational chemistry data.

Controversy and the state: lord ARPA and intelligent computing.  

PubMed

This is a study of a well-known controversy in computer science, between artificial intelligence and neural networks researchers. It examines claims made by participants in the field that the controversy was triggered, shaped and finally resolved in connection to activities of state research agencies, particularly the US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). In contrast to these claims, this account concludes that, although ARPA's relations to the controversy among researchers were important, they were indirect. This study thus beings the analytical resources of studies of scientific controversy to bear on a domain which has so far gone largely unexamined in studies of 20th-century controversies - namely, state research policy and management. The account is based on contemporary documents, historical literatuare, and interviews with researchers and ARPA officials. PMID:11619937

“Kerrr” black hole: The lord of the string  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Kerrr in the title is not a typo. The third “r” stands for regular, in the sense of pathology-free rotating black hole. We exhibit a long search-for, exact, Kerr-like, solution of the Einstein equations with novel features: (i) no curvature ring singularity; (ii) no “anti-gravity” universe with causality violating time-like closed world-lines; (iii) no “super-luminal” matter disk. The ring singularity is replaced by a classical, circular, rotating string with Planck tension representing the inner engine driving the rotation of all the surrounding matter. The resulting geometry is regular and smoothly interpolates among inner Minkowski space, borderline de Sitter and outer Kerr universe. The key ingredient to cure all unphysical features of the ordinary Kerr black hole is the choice of a “non-commutative geometry inspired” matter source as the input for the Einstein equations, in analogy with spherically symmetric black holes described in earlier works.

Granitoid pluton formation by spreading of continental crust: the Wiley Glacier complex, northwest Palmer Land, Antarctica  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The emplacement mechanism, geometry, and isotope geochemistry of plutons of the Wiley Glacier complex suggest that new continental crust grew by multiple injection of tonalitic dykes during dextral transtension in the Antarctic Peninsula magmatic arc in Early Cretaceous times. The suggested mechanism is analogous to basalt dyke injection during sea-floor spreading. During normal-dextral shear, the Burns Bluff pluton, a sheeted, moderately east-dipping, syn-magmatically sheared tonalite-granodiorite intruded syn-magmatically sheared quartz diorite of the Creswick Gap pluton and 140 ± 5 Ma hornblende gabbro. U?Pb dating of zircon and Ar?Ar dating of hornblende and biotite suggest that both granite s.l. plutons were emplaced between 145 and 140 Ma, but that extensional shearing was active from the time of emplacement until ca. 127 Ma. The Burns Bluff pluton is chilled at its margin, and grades through mylonitised, porphyritic tonalite-granodiorite sheets and tonalite-granodiorite sheets with minor chilling, to a kilometre-scale body of coarse-grained, hypidiomorphic tonalite-granodiorite. Co-magmatic microdiorite forms dykes and abundant synplutonic mafic enclaves. These dykes opened as echelon veins during episodic dextral shear and were deformed to trains of enclaves during continued normal-dextral shear. Pluton-marginal porphyritic and hypidiomorphic tonalite-granodiorite forms large, fault-hosted sheets emplaced progressively under extension with minor dextral shear. Kinematic indicators from pluton-marginal granite s.l. dykes suggest that early in pluton accretion, intrusive sheets cooled rapidly, with simple shear prior to full crystallisation changing to ductile simple shear during cooling. Kinematic indicators towards the pluton core suggest that as the pluton grew, and cooled more slowly, emplacement switched from sheeting to in situ inflation with simple shear distributed across a broad zone prior to full crystallisation of magma. Cross-cutting relationships with the coeval, syn-extensional, Creswick Gap pluton suggest that the Burns Bluff pluton was emplaced in a steeper, second generation shear structure, like those in normal fault systems. This suggests that the Wiley Glacier complex was emplaced above the base of the brittle-ductile transition zone (15-18 km depth). The Burns Bluff pluton has Nd and Sr isotope values that range from mantle dominated ( ?Nd 141 = +3.8, {87Sr }/{86Sr 141} = 0.70468 ) to more crustally influenced ( ?Nd 141 = -1.7, {87Sr }/{86Sr 141} = 0.70652 ). This range probably represents different degrees of mixing between mantle-derived magma and lower crustal partial melts generated in the garnet-stability zone (40+ km depth). Addition of new crustal material by mafic underplating at the base of the crust and by redistribution of granitic s.l. and mafic, modified, underplated magma to mid-crustal levels along extensional shear zones as the arc 'spread' were the primary mechanisms of crustal growth.

The S-R issue: its status in behavior analysis and in Donahoe and Palmer's learning and complex behavior.  

PubMed Central

The central focus of this essay is whether the effect of reinforcement is best viewed as the strengthenng of responding or the strengthening of the environmental control of responding. We make the argument that adherence to Skinner's goal of achieving a moment-to-moment analysis of behavior compels acceptance of the latter view. Moreover, a thoroughgoing commitment to a moment-to-moment analysis undermines the fundamental distinction between the conditioning process instantiated by operant and respondent contingencies while buttressing the crucially important differences in their cumulative outcomes. Computer simulations informed by experimental analyses of behavior and neuroscience are used to illustrate these points. PMID:9132463

Level II scour analysis for Bridge 5 (IRASTH00010005) on Town Highway 1, crossing Lords Creek, Irasburg, Vermont  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Contraction scour for all modelled flows ranged from 2.4 to 4.6 ft. The worst-case contraction scour occurred at the 500-year discharge. Abutment scour ranged from 7.2 to 9.8 ft. The worst-case abutment scour also occurred at the 500-year discharge. Additional information on scour depths and depths to armoring are included in the section titled “Scour Results”. Scoured-streambed elevations, based on the calculated scour depths, are presented in tables 1 and 2. A cross-section of the scour computed at the bridge is presented in figure 8. Scour depths were calculated assuming an infinite depth of erosive material and a homogeneous particle-size distribution. It is generally accepted that the Froehlich equation (abutment scour) gives “excessively conservative estimates of scour depths” (Richardson and others, 1995, p. 47). Usually, computed scour depths are evaluated in combination with other information including (but not limited to) historical performance during flood events, the geomorphic stability assessment, existing scour protection measures, and the results of the hydraulic analyses. Therefore, scour depths adopted by VTAOT may differ from the computed values documented herein.

Lord Rutherford of Nelson, his 1908 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and why he didn't get a second prize  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

'I have dealt with many different transformations with various periods of time, but the quickest that I have met was my own transformation in one moment from a physicist to a chemist.' Ernest Rutherford (Nobel Banquet, 1908) This article is about how Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) got the 1908 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and why he did not get a second Prize for his subsequent outstanding discoveries in physics, specially the discovery of the atomic nucleus and the proton. Who were those who nominated him and who did he nominate for the Nobel Prizes? In order to put the Prize issue into its proper context, I will briefly describe Rutherford's whereabouts. Rutherford, an exceptionally gifted scientist who revolutionized chemistry and physics, was moulded in the finest classical tradition. What were his opinions on some scientific issues such as Einstein's photon, uncertainty relations and the future prospects for atomic energy? What would he have said about the 'Theory of Everything'?

FIVE HUNDRED YEARS OF HYDROLOGICAL DROUGHT IN THE UPPER COLORADO RIVER BASIN1  

Microsoft Academic Search

This article evaluates drought scenarios of the Upper Colorado River basin (UCRB) considering multiple drought variables for the past 500 years and positions the current drought in terms of the magnitude and frequency. Drought characteristics were developed considering water-year data of UCRB's streamflow, and basin-wide averages of the Palmer Hydrological Drought Index (PHDI) and the Palmer Z Index. Streamflow and

Evaluation and application of the SPDI-JDI for droughts in Texas, USA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The lack of a system/model for integration of drought-related information has been an important obstacle in efforts for accurate and reliable drought monitoring and prediction. This study proposes an integrated multivariate standardized drought index (i.e. standardized Palmer drought index-based joint drought index, SPDI-JDI), where the Palmer scheme/model is accepted as a multivariate multi-index conceptual framework that integrates multiple drought-related indicators for characterizing drought. Using the meteorological data of ten climate divisions from Texas, the computed SPDI-JDI index is first compared to various ground observations (e.g. streamflow, lake/reservoir water level, soil moisture content and groundwater level) for the reflection of drought/wetness conditions. Moreover, the SPDI-JDI is also evaluated against Palmer drought indices and US Drought Monitor for drought detection. Results indicate that the SPDI-JDI is in good/acceptable agreements with surface and subsurface water anomalies and performs well with respect to the integrated use of Palmer drought severity index, Palmer modified drought index, Palmer hydrologic drought index and Palmer Z index as well as to the US Drought Monitor observations. Potential implications are that the SPDI-JDI allows for insights into different impacts of drought and leads to high probability of drought detection versus multi-source drought information, implying attractive properties originating from its physically inclusive and multivariate joint probabilistic combined nature.

Constructing a philosophy of chiropractic: evolving worldviews and modern foundation?  

PubMed Central

Objective The purpose of this article is to trace the foundations of DD Palmer's sense of self and philosophy of chiropractic to its sources in modern Western philosophy as well as current metatheories about modernity. Discussion DD Palmer's sense of self was indicative of a modern self. A modern self is characterized as a self that developed after the Western Enlightenment and must come to terms with the insights of modernity such as Cartesian dualism, Spinoza's substance, Rousseau's expressivism, and Kant's critiques. It is argued that Palmer's philosophy can be viewed as part of the this tradition alongside his involvement in the 19th century American metaphysical religious culture, which was itself a response to these challenges of the modern self of modernity. Conclusion Palmer's development of chiropractic and its philosophy was a reaction to the challenges and promises of modernity. PMID:22693479

Constructing a philosophy of chiropractic: evolving worldviews and postmodern core?  

PubMed Central

Objective The purpose of this article is to explore the postmodern, postrational, and postconventional core of DD Palmer's self-sense and philosophy. Discussion DD Palmer's self and philosophy can be viewed as a reaction to the self of modernity and its challenges of a fracture between mind and body, spirit, and nature. It is argued that Palmer's solution to these vexing problems facing the modern self was to use postrational and postconventional logic to overcome the dualisms. His philosophy resonates with similar postrational approaches, most notably, the German idealist Schelling. Conclusion It is argued that Palmer was one of the first postrational individuals in America and that chiropractic was an attempt at the first postrational health profession. PMID:22693480

Gastrointestinal Helminths of Magpies (Pica pica), Rooks (Corvus frugilegus) and Carrion Crows (Corvus corone) in Mazandaran Province, North of Iran  

PubMed Central

Background Corvidae is a cosmopolitan family of oscine birds including crows, rooks, magpies, jays, chough, and ravens. These birds are migratory species, especially in the shortage of foods, so they can act like vectors for a wide range of microorganisms. They live generally in temperate climates and in a very close contact with human residential areas as well as poultry farms. There is no available information in the literature concerning the parasitic infections of these three species of corvidae in Mazandaran Province, northern Iran, so this study was conducted to clarify this. Methods As there are three species of corvid birds in Mazandaran Province, 106 birds including 79 magpies, 11 rooks, and 16 carrion crows were examined between winter 2007 and spring 2008 at post mortem for gastrointestinal helminths. The helminths were drawn and identified morphologically in the Laboratory of Parasitology, Islamic Azad University, Science and Research Branch, Tehran and also partly in the School of Public Health, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, based on the reference books and identification keys like Soulsby, Khalil et al. and Anderson et al. Results Four species of nematodes, 2 species of cestodes, 1 species of trematodes and 1 species of acanthocephalans were identified in these three corvid species. Conclusion Five species of the helminths are identified for the first time in Iran, and the acanthocephalan species is new host record for rooks. It is clear that these corvid birds have diverse range of helminths and can act as carriers for infecting the domestic fowls. PMID:22347286

Stueckelberg owed this position devoted several papers to problems of molecular physics. Stueckelberg had the benefit at Princeton of exchanges with other gifted members of the Palmer Physical Laboratory, Philip M. Morse and E. U. Condon among others.3 to a recommendation by A. Sommerfeld.2 In this stimulating environment, he devoted several papers to problems of molecular physics.

Innate intelligence: its origins and problems  

PubMed Central

Animal Magnetism and Radionics were among several occult practices used during the 19th century for the treatment of disease. D.D. Palmer was exposed to these teachings and derived many of his ideas about health from the folk medicine practices of his time. As a ‘magnetic healer’ Palmer believed he was correcting an undefined fifth force in the body that is otherwise unknown to science. Palmer believed he could influence this fifth force, termed Innate Intelligence, and that it was the explanation for the presence or absence of health. Today, Innate Intelligence remains an untestable enigma that isolates chiropractic and impedes its acceptance as a legitimate health science. The concept of Innate is derived directly from the occult practices of another era. It carries a high penalty in divisiveness and lack of logical coherence. The chiropractic profession must decide whether the concept of Innate should be retained.

Amplified fragment length polymorphism-based genetic relationships among weedy Amaranthus species.  

PubMed

Weedy Amaranthus species frequently cause economically significant reductions in crop yields. Accurate identification of Amaranthus species is important for efficient weed control, but Amaranthus species can interbreed, which might cause difficulty when identifying hybrid-derived specimens. To determine which of several economically important weedy Amaranthus species are most genetically similar, and thus most likely to produce viable hybrids, we performed amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP)-based unweighted pair group method with arithmetic mean (UPGMA) analysis on 8 of these species, with 141 specimens representing 98 accessions. The analysis grouped the specimens into four principal clusters composed of Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri S. Wats.) and spiny amaranth (Amaranthus spinosus L.); Powell amaranth (Amaranthus powellii S. Wats.), redroot pigweed (Amaranthus retroflexus L.), and smooth pigweed (Amaranthus hybridus L.); waterhemp (Amaranthus tuberculatus (Moq.) Sauer) and sandhills amaranth (Amaranthus arenicola I.M. Johnst.); and tumble pigweed (Amaranthus albus L.). The cluster analysis provided evidence suggesting hybridization among Powell amaranth, redroot pigweed, and smooth pigweed. Further investigations using molecular analysis of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer region from atypical plants supported this notion. Three species, Palmer amaranth, sandhills amaranth, and waterhemp, are dioecious; nevertheless, the Palmer amaranth and waterhemp-sandhills amaranth clusters were distinct from each other. The Palmer amaranth-spiny amaranth cluster included a cluster of Palmer amaranth and two clusters of spiny amaranth, a monoecious species. Thus the dioecious species Palmer amaranth and waterhemp may not necessarily hybridize with each other more readily than they would to one or more of the monoecious Amaranthus species. PMID:15829725
