Epistemic Sensibility: Third Dimension of Virtue Epistemology  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

The author tries to argue how epistemic sensibility as virtue sensibility can complement virtue epistemology. Many philosophers interrelated virtue reliabilism (e.g., Brogaard, 2006) and virtue responsibilism (e.g., Code, 1987) to virtue epistemology as two dimensions with many diverging and a few converging characters. The possible new dimension…

Human Sensibility Ergonomics Approach to Vehicle Simulator Based on Dynamics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Simulators have been used to evaluate drivers' reactions to various transportation products. Most research, however, has concentrated on their technical performance. This paper considers driver's motion perception on a vehicle simulator through the analysis of human sensibility ergonomics. A sensibility ergonomic method is proposed in order to improve the reliability of vehicle simulators. A simulator in a passenger vehicle consists of three main modules such as vehicle dynamics, virtual environment, and motion representation modules. To evaluate drivers' feedback, human perceptions are categorized into a set verbal expressions collected and investigated to find the most appropriate ones for translation and angular accelerations of the simulator. The cut-off frequency of the washout filter in the representation module is selected as one sensibility factor. Sensibility experiments were carried out to find a correlation between the expressions and the cut-off frequency of the filter. This study suggests a methodology to obtain an ergonomic database that can be applied to the sensibility evaluation of dynamic simulators.

Sensible heat receiver for solar dynamic space power system  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A sensible heat receiver considered in this study uses a vapor grown carbon fiber-carbon (VGCF/C) composite as the thermal storage media and was designed for a 7 kW Brayton engine. The proposed heat receiver stores the required energy to power the system during eclipse in the VGCF/C composite. The heat receiver thermal analysis was conducted through the Systems Improved Numerical Differencing Analyzer and Fluid Integrator (SINDA) software package. The sensible heat receiver compares well with other latent and advanced sensible heat receivers analyzed in other studies while avoiding the problems associated with latent heat storage salts and liquid metal heat pipes. The concept also satisfies the design requirements for a 7 kW Brayton engine system. The weight and size of the system can be optimized by changes in geometry and technology advances for this new material.

Lack of impairment of kinaesthetic sensibility in cervicogenic headache patients.  

PubMed

To compare the cervical kinaesthetic sensibility of cervicogenic headache (CEH) patients and asymptomatic controls, the head repositioning accuracy of 10 CEH patients and 23 asymptomatic controls was measured. Should an impaired kinaesthetic sensibility be demonstrated, its assessment could be of diagnostic value in the evaluation of patients with suspected CEH. Additionally, specific exercises to improve cervical kinaesthesia could be prescribed. Kinaesthetic sensibility was assessed using a head repositioning task: subjects were asked to relocate their heads as accurately as possible to a previously memorized head position following an active movement (flexion, extension and left and right rotations). The repositioning error was registered using a validated magnetic tracking device (Flock of Birds). No significant differences were found between the asymptomatic controls and the CEH patients (independent-samples T-test, P < 0.05). We conclude that cervical kinaesthetic sensibility is not impaired in non-traumatic CEH. The use of kinaesthetic assessment and treatment in this patient group seems to be limited. PMID:18284421

Anterior insular cortex mediates bodily sensibility and social anxiety  

PubMed Central

Studies in psychiatry and cognitive neuroscience have reported an important relationship between individual interoceptive accuracy and anxiety level. This indicates that greater attention to one’s bodily state may contribute to the development of intense negative emotions and anxiety disorders. We hypothesized that reactivity in the anterior insular cortex underlies the intensity of interoceptive awareness and anxiety. To elucidate this triadic mechanism, we conducted functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and mediation analyses to examine the relationship between emotional disposition and activation in the anterior insular cortex while participants evaluated their own emotional and bodily states. Our results indicated that right anterior insular activation was positively correlated with individual levels of social anxiety and neuroticism and negatively correlated with agreeableness and extraversion. The results of the mediation analyses revealed that activity in the right anterior insula mediated the activity of neural correlates of interoceptive sensibility and social fear. Our findings suggest that attention to interoceptive sensation affects personality traits through how we feel emotion subjectively in various situations. PMID:22977199

Sensible and latent heat flux estimates in Antarctica  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The assumption has been made that the net annual contribution of water by the processes of deposition and sublimation to the Antarctic Ice Sheet is zero. The U.S. Antarctic Program started installing reliable automatic weather stations on the Antarctic Continent in 1980. The initial units were equipped to measure wind speed, wind direction, air pressure, and air temperature. During the 1983-1984 field season in Antarctica, three units were installed that measured a vertical air temperature difference between the nominal heights of 0.5 m and 3.0 m and relative humidity at a nominal height of 3 m. The measurements of the vertical air temperature difference and the relative humidity are the minimum required to estimate the sensible and latent heat fluxes to the air, while not exceeding the available energy requirements for the weather stations. The estimates of the net annual sublimation and deposition on the Ross Ice Shelf amount to 20 to 80 percent of the annual accumulation. We conclude that the assumption that annual sublimation and deposition are zero is not valid under Antarctic conditions.

Dietary goals, sensible eating and nutrition in the future.  

PubMed

Compared with our ancestor's diet, that consumed by present-day Western populations is higher in intake of energy, of protein (especially animal protein) and of fat (especially animal fat), but lower in intake of fibre-containing cereal foods; this diet is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality from degenerative diseases. In the USA, the Dietary Goals report has recommended partial reversion to our ancestors' diet, including decreased intake of animal fat and protein, cholesterol, salt, sugar and alcohol--hopefully to reduce mortality from the six leading causes of death. 'Dietary goals', 'sensible eating' and the extreme 'longevity diet' are discussed. It is concluded that the general public will not voluntarily accept dietary changes of the magnitude required to promote a meaningful decrease in the burden of ill-health from degenerative diseases, because of: (i) conservativeness of dietary habits; and (ii) uncertainties about the extent of benefits likely to accrue. It is speculated, however, that in the distant future dietary changes of the type recommended will gradually but compulsorily be introduced, because of: (i) increases in population numbers; and (ii) the far greater economy of land usage linked with production of a near-vegetarian diet.

Regional differences in surface sensible and latent heat fluxes in China  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This study documents the variability of surface sensible and latent heat fluxes in five regions of China (Northwest China, the Tibetan Plateau, Northeast China, North China, and Southeast China) using the ERA-40 reanalysis for the years 1960-2000. The surface sensible and latent heat flux variations are remarkably different in Northwest and Southeast China. The seasonal variation of the surface sensible heat fluxes is largest in Northwest China and smallest in Southeast China. In contrast, the seasonal variation in latent heat flux is largest in Southeast China and smallest in Northwest China. The interdecadal variation of surface sensible and surface latent heat fluxes strongly depends on both the region and season. The trends in surface sensible and latent heat fluxes in all four seasons are mainly caused by variations in both the land-air temperature difference and in the specific humidity. There is also a limited contribution of wind speed in some regions, depending on the season.

Mean surface temperature prediction models for broiler chickens-a study of sensible heat flow.  

PubMed

Body surface temperature can be used to evaluate thermal equilibrium in animals. The bodies of broiler chickens, like those of all birds, are partially covered by feathers. Thus, the heat flow at the boundary layer between broilers' bodies and the environment differs between feathered and featherless areas. The aim of this investigation was to use linear regression models incorporating environmental parameters and age to predict the surface temperatures of the feathered and featherless areas of broiler chickens. The trial was conducted in a climate chamber, and 576 broilers were distributed in two groups. In the first trial, 288 broilers were monitored after exposure to comfortable or stressful conditions during a 6-week rearing period. Another 288 broilers were measured under the same conditions to test the predictive power of the models. Sensible heat flow was calculated, and for the regions covered by feathers, sensible heat flow was predicted based on the estimated surface temperatures. The surface temperatures of the feathered and featherless areas can be predicted based on air, black globe or operative temperatures. According to the sensible heat flow model, the broilers' ability to maintain thermal equilibrium by convection and radiation decreased during the rearing period. Sensible heat flow estimated based on estimated surface temperatures can be used to predict animal responses to comfortable and stressful conditions. PMID:23820939

Commercial remote sensing uses satellite imagery to provide valuable information about the planet's features. By capturing light reflected from the Earth's surface with cameras or sensor systems, usually mounted on an orbiting satellite, data is obtained for business enterprises with an interest in land feature distribution. Remote sensing is practical when applied to large-area coverage, such as agricultural monitoring, regional mapping, environmental assessment, and infrastructure planning. For example, cellular service providers use satellite imagery to select the most ideal location for a communication tower. Crowsey Incorporated has the ability to use remote sensing capabilities to conduct spatial geographic visualizations and other remote-sensing services. Presently, the company has found a demand for these services in the area of litigation support. By using spatial information and analyses, Crowsey helps litigators understand and visualize complex issues and then to communicate a clear argument, with complete indisputable evidence.

However, the latent and sensible heat fluxes were overestimated by ~26% by assuming a constant air density of 1.3 kg m-3. As a result, the net heat flux was underestimated, bringing into question conclusions regarding the convective circulation.

Cervicocephalic kinesthetic sensibility and postural balance in patients with nontraumatic chronic neck pain – a pilot study  

PubMed Central

Background Although cervical pain is widespread, most victims are only mildly and occasionally affected. A minority, however, suffer chronic pain and/or functional impairments. Although there is abundant literature regarding nontraumatic neck pain, little focuses on diagnostic criteria. During the last decade, research on neck pain has been designed to evaluate underlying pathophysiological mechanisms, without noteworthy success. Independent researchers have investigated postural balance and cervicocephalic kinesthetic sensibility among patients with chronic neck pain, and have (in most cases) concluded the source of the problem is a reduced ability in the neck's proprioceptive system. Here, we investigated cervicocephalic kinesthetic sensibility and postural balance among patients with nontraumatic chronic neck pain. Methods Ours was a two-group, observational pilot study of patients with complaints of continuous neck pain during the 3 months prior to recruitment. Thirteen patients with chronic neck pain of nontraumatic origin were recruited from an institutional outpatient clinic. Sixteen healthy persons were recruited as a control group. Cervicocephalic kinesthetic sensibility was assessed by exploring head repositioning accuracy and postural balance was measured with computerized static posturography. Results Parameters of cervicocephalic kinesthetic sensibility were not reduced. However, in one of six test movements (flexion), global repositioning errors were significantly larger in the experimental group than in the control group (p < .05). Measurements did not demonstrate any general impaired postural balance, and varied substantially among participants in both groups. Conclusion In patients with nontraumatic chronic neck pain, we found statistically significant global repositioning errors in only one of six test movements. In this cohort, we found no evidence of impaired postural balance. Head repositioning accuracy and computerized static posturography are imperfect measures of functional proprioceptive impairments. Validity of (and procedures for using) these instruments demand further investigation. Trial registration Current Controlled Trials ISRCTN96873990 PMID:19566929

Sensible heat flux - Radiometric surface temperature relationship for eight semiarid areas  

SciTech Connect

Measurements of sensible heat flux, radiometric surface temperature, air temperature, and wind speed made at eight semiarid rangeland sites were used to investigate the sensible heat flux-aerodynamic resistance relationship. The individual sites covered a wide range of vegetation (0.1-4 m tall) and cover (3%-95% bare soil) conditions. Mean values of k/B, a quantity related to the resistance of heat versus momentum transfer at the surface, for the individual sites varied between 3.5 and 12.5. A preliminary test of the utility of an excess resistance based on the mean value of k/B showed that the difference between the mean estimated and measured sensible heat fluxes varied +/- 60 W/sq m for the eight semiarid sites. For the eight sites the values of k/B were plotted against the roughness Reynolds number. The plot showed considerable scatter with values ranging between and beyond the theoretical curves for bluff rough and permeable rough surfaces.

Hearing as substitution for sensation: a new principle for artificial sensibility.  

PubMed

We describe a new principle for artificial sensibility of the hand based on sense substitution, using hearing as substitution for loss of sensation. The experiments were performed on 3 patients who had recently undergone isolated median nerve repair, 1 patient with replantation of an amputated forearm, 1 patient using a myoelectric prosthesis, and 4 patients using cosmetic prostheses. Small condenser microphones were mounted dorsally on the distal phalanges of multiple fingers of the nonsensate hands or prostheses. The friction sound, reflecting the vibrotactile stimuli generated by the moving touch of the objects, was picked up by the microphones and processed in a stereo amplifier that separated signals from individual fingers into different channels. The signals were transmitted to earphones, making possible a spatial resolution that enabled identification of each finger by the generated acoustic stimuli. Since the friction sound is characteristic of specific surfaces and textures, the corresponding acoustic stimuli made possible identification of different textures, such as glass, metal, wood, and paper, without using vision. We conclude that sense substitution using specifically processed acoustic stimuli as a substitute for sensation may represent a useful principle for generation of artificial sensibility in prostheses or hands lacking sensibility due to lesions in the peripheral or central nervous system or because of neurologic disease.

Aircraft- and tower-based fluxes of carbon dioxide, latent, and sensible heat  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Fluxes of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and sensible heat obtained over a grassland ecosystem, during the First International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) Field Experiment (FIFE), using an aircraft- and two tower-based systems are compared for several days in 1987 and in 1989. The tower-based cospectral estimates of CO2, sensible heat, water vapor, and momentum, expressed as a function of wavenumber K times sampling height z, are relatively similar to the aircraft-based estimates for K x z greater than 0.1. A measurable contribution to the fluxes is observed by tower-based systems at K x z less than 0.01 but not by the aircraft-based system operating at an altitude of approximately 100 m over a 15 x 15 km area. Using all available simultaneous aircraft and tower data, flux estimates by both systems were shown to be highly correlated. As expected from the spatial variations of the greenness index, surface extrapolation of airborne flux estimates tended to lie between those of the two tower sites. The average fluxes obtained, on July 11, 1987, and August 4, 1989, by flying a grid pattern over the FIFE site agreed with the two tower data sets for CO2, but sensible and latent heat were smaller than those obtained by the tower-based systems. However, in general, except for a small underestimation due to the long wavelength contributions and due to flux divergence with height, the differences between the aircraft- and tower-based surface estimates of fluxes appear to be mainly attributable to differences in footprint, that is, differences in the area contributing to the surface flux estimates.

Fluxes of CO2, water vapor and sensible heat were measured in a grassland ecosystem near Manhattan, Kansas, employing the eddy correlation technique. The vegetation at this site is dominated by big bluestem ( Andropogon gerardii), switchgrass ( Panicum virgatum), and indiangrass ( Sorghastrum nutans). Diurnal patterns of the energy budget components and CO2 fluxes are evaluated on a few selected days. Influence of high atmospheric evaporative demand and low availability of soil water are examined on (a) energy partitioning, and (b) the magnitudes and patterns of atmospheric carbon dioxide exchange.

Development of Novice Teachers' Views of Students Ideas as Sensible and Productive  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Novice teachers in Seattle Pacific Universityâs (SPUâs) Learning Assistant (LA) Program shifted their views of student thinking over the course of two academic quarters. LAs originally valued student ideas as (1) a part of caring for students as whole people and (2) instrumental for diagnosing misunderstandings. As the second quarter of the course proceeded, LAs highlighted the intellectual value of student thinking, treating student ideas as sensible and productive. This paper proposes plausible mechanisms that foster this expanded view. In particular, we suggest that articulating teaching values that prioritize student reasoning, searching for "kernels of correctness" in student thinking, and negotiating curricular knowledge promote this particular attention towards student ideas.

Sensible heat flux at the spray-laden air-sea interface  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Air-sea exchange processes are typically parameterized in large-scale numerical models owing to the prohibitively large length and time scales involved. For example, intensity predictions of tropical cyclones rely heavily on accurate knowledge of the fluxes of momentum, heat, and moisture from the ocean surface, but these quantities must be computed using bulk flux coefficients since small-scale exchange processes cannot be fully resolved. As a result, these exchange coefficients attempt to represent a large number of physical processes, whose individual roles are difficult to distinguish. One such near-surface process is the formation and transport of sea spray, which has been identified as a possible source of flux modification. In this study, we investigate the role of spray in the turbulent transfer of sensible heat at the air-sea interface using direct numerical simulation (DNS) and a Lagrangian point-particle tracking technique. This is a follow-up to our previous work where the influence of spray on the transfer of momentum was examined. Our idealized simulations suggest that sea spray has the ability to greatly enhance the transfer of sensible heat at the ocean surface, in agreement with existing sea spray models. The physical explanation of this behavior and a discussion of its apparent contradiction with observational studies will be included. Simulation snapshot showing particle-turbulence interaction

Simulation of Atmospheric Dispersion of a Radioactive Plume Including Sensible Heat  

SciTech Connect

A postulated fire scenario in a Savannah River Site (SRS) laboratory facility could result in release of radioactive materials to the environment.The Technology Center is located in the general proximity of the site boundary.The relatively short distance to potential off- site receptors makes it important to consider the effects of plume rise and the effects of the sensible heat of the escaping combustion products. The potential consequences from the airborne release are calculated with the MACCS, Version 1.5.11.1, computer code. Calculation of atmospheric dispersion without consideration of plume rise results in a monotonically decreasing dose response. When the plume rise is modeled in the dose calculation, the results show that the cloud touchdown point and the location of highest off-site dose do not follow a monotonically decreasing pattern.

Sensible and Latent Heat Exchange at the Soil Surface Beneath a Maize Canopy  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Soil heat and vapor exchange at the soil surface beneath a plant canopy was measured using heat and vapor source plates. Data from field and laboratory experiments were used to derive equations predicting interfacial heat and vapor transfer coefficients for inclusion in an existing, comprehensive soil-plant-atmosphere model, Cupid. Heat and vapor source plates constructed of anodized aluminum (305 by 864 mm by 13 mm thick) were installed level with the soil surface within a maize (Zea mays, L.) field to provide an area of known and controllable temperature and/or vapor pressure and sensible and/or latent heat flux. Sensible heat flux density was determined from an energy budget analysis while evaporation from wetted felt fabric on one plate's surface was used to determine the latent heat flux density. Flux measurements were combined with measured temperature and vapor pressure differences to determine the interfacial transfer coefficients. Field measurements were made during all stages of canopy development and were supplemented by extensive measurements of the local microclimate. Controlled forced convection experiments were also conducted in a wind tunnel using three levels of turbulence intensity and two arrays of aluminum roughness elements to assess the effects of turbulence and surface roughness on heat and mass transfer. Measured interfacial transfer coefficients during the field experiments ranged from 2 to 30 mm s ^{-1} over wind speeds of 5 to 280 cm s^{-1} measured 3 cm above the plate surface. Equations based on dimensionless parameters were developed and fit to the wind tunnel data, compared with the field data, and incorporated into the computer model. The new transfer coefficient relationships had less scatter and were more closely correlated to within -canopy wind speed than the previous formulations. Predictions of canopy microclimate characteristics were significantly improved as compared to those predictions obtained using transfer coefficients calculated by dividing a near-surface eddy diffusivity by the thickness of the air layer nearest the soil surface.

Effects of cold fronts on MODIS-derived sensible and latent heat fluxes in Itumbiara reservoir (Central Brazil)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this work we investigate the cold front passage effects on sensible and latent heat flux in a tropical hydroelectric reservoir. The study area, Itumbiara reservoir (Goiás State/Brazil) at the beginning of the austral winter, is characterized by the presence of a weak thermal stratification and the passage of several cold fronts from higher latitudes of South America. Sensible and latent heat fluxes were estimated considering the atmospheric boundary layer stability. In situ and MODIS water surface temperature data were used to adjust the coefficients for momentum and heat exchanges between water and atmosphere and spatialize the sensible and latent heat fluxes. The results showed that during a cold front event the sensible heat flux can be up to five times greater than the flux observed before. The latent heat flux tends to decrease during the cold front but increase again after the passage. The highest values of heat loss were observed at littoral zone and some Reservoir's embayment. The heat loss intensification can be separated in two moments: first, during the cold front passage, when the wind speed increases and the air temperature decreases; second, after the cold front passage, with air humidity decreasing. This can be considered a key process to understanding the heat loss in the Itumbiara reservoir.

Persistent unstable atmospheric boundary layer enhances sensible and latent heat loss in a tropical great lake: Lake Tanganyika  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Energy fluxes across the surface of lakes regulate heat storage and affect the water balance. Sensible and latent heat fluxes are affected by atmospheric stability, especially for large lakes. We examined the effect of atmospheric stability on the heat fluxes on seasonal time scales at Lake Tanganyika, East Africa, by estimating hourly sensible and latent heat fluxes and net radiation using thermistor chains and meteorological stations. The atmosphere was almost always unstable, in contrast to the atmosphere above North American Great Lakes which is unstable in winter and stable in summer. Persistent atmospheric instability resulted in a 13% and 18% increase in the annual mean heat loss by latent and sensible heat fluxes, respectively, relative to conditions of neutral stability. The persistent unstable atmosphere is caused by a higher water surface temperature compared with air temperature, which we argue is the case in general in (sub)tropical lakes. Low humidity further enhanced the frequency of unstable conditions and enhanced the exchange of heat and vapor from the lake to the atmosphere. The estimated heat fluxes were sensitive to the temporal scale of data inputs and to the local values of parameters such as air density. To our knowledge this is the first paper that demonstrates and quantifies the effect of atmospheric stability on latent and sensible heat fluxes from a lake on an annual basis, using data collected from the lake surface.

Role of Sensible and Latent Heat Fluxes from the Ocean in the Genesis of Tropical Cyclone Nargis (2008)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

On May 2, 2008, Tropical Cyclone Nargis killed over 130,000 people in southern Myanmar making it the 8th deadliest cyclone of all time. A better understanding of the mechanisms in the early stages of development of tropical cyclones, such as the role of latent and sensible heat fluxes from the ocean, could help forecast modelers better understand the physics of the cyclogenesis, improve the model forecasts and ultimately gain a greater lead time in detecting and predicting cyclones. We conducted two experiments using the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model version 3.3.1 to determine the impact of surface fluxes on the genesis of Cyclone Nargis during a 60-hour forecast. The two experiments included: a control run (CNTRL), where the model forecast had full physics, including sensible and latent heat fluxes from the surface, and a no flux run (NOFLX), which turned off both surface sensible heat and latent heat fluxes. The CNTRL produced a strong cyclone, with a maximum wind of 65 knots (33.4 m/s) and a minimum pressure of 955 hPa. The NOFLX produced a weak cyclone with a maximum wind of 25 knots (12.9 m/s) and a minimum pressure of 1002 hPa. Thus major factors in the genesis of Cyclone Nargis were the surface latent and sensible heat fluxes over the ocean, where the sea-surface temperature was above normal.

The concrete columns as a sensible thermal energy storage medium and a heater  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This study investigated storage possibility of sensible thermal energy in the concrete columns of multi-storey buildings and the heating performance of the indoors with the stored energy. In the suggested system, the dry air heated in an energy center will be circulated in stainless steel pipes through columns. The sensible thermal energy would firstly be stored by means of forced convection in column medium. Then, the stored thermal energy will transfer by natural convection and radiation from the column surfaces to indoor spaces. The transient thermal calculations are realized for a flat of the 11-storey building in Kayseri city of Turkey. The thermal energy requirement of the flat is nearby 5.3 kW as an average of a winter season. The simplified transient calculations were carried out over a concrete hollow cylindrical column having outer radius of 0.31 m and inner radius of 0.05 m corresponding an averaged column section in the sample flat. The flow temperature was selected between T = 350 and 500 K, which are considerably lower than the temperature of 573 K assumed as a limit for thermal strength of the concrete in the literature. The flow velocity ranges were selected between V = 1.0 and 5.0 m/s. The initial temperature was assumed as 293 K. After the first energy charging process of 23 h, for T = 350 K and V = 1.0 m/s, the total heat flux from the column surfaces into indoors are nearby 5.5 kW. The first charging time required to reach the energy requirement of 5.3 kW is decreased by increasing the flow velocity and temperature. Also for 5.0 m/s-350 K and 5.0 m/s-450 K, this time can decrease to 10 and 4.5 h, respectively. In addition, with 4.0 m/s-360 K or 2.0 m/s-400 K, after the energy charging of 8 h, the energy requirement of 5.3 kW can be provided by the energy discharging of 16 h and the energy charging of 8 h during 7 days. The results are very attractive in terms of the building heating systems of the future.

From Sensibility to Pathology: The Origins of the Idea of Nervous Music around 1800  

PubMed Central

Healing powers have been ascribed to music at least since David’s lyre, but a systematic discourse of pathological music emerged only at the end of the eighteenth century. At that time, concerns about the moral threat posed by music were partly replaced by the idea that it could over-stimulate a vulnerable nervous system, leading to illness, immorality, and even death. During the Enlightenment, the relationship between the nerves and music was more often put in terms of refinement and sensibility than pathology. However, around 1800, this view was challenged by a medical critique of modern culture based on a model of the etiology of disease that saw stimulation as the principal cause of sickness. Music’s belated incorporation into that critique was made possible by a move away from regarding music as an expression of cosmic and social order toward thinking of it as quasi-electrical stimulation, something that was intensified by the political and cultural changes unleashed by the French Revolution. For the next hundred and fifty years, nervousness caused by musical stimulation was often regarded as a fully fledged Zivilisationskrankheit, widely discussed in psychiatry, music criticism, and literature.

Vertically integrated sensible-heat budgets for stable nocturnal boundary layers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The stable nocturnal boundary layer is commonly viewed or modelled as a balance between the temperature tendency (cooling) and vertical heat-flux divergence. Sometimes the radiative-flux divergence is also included. This perspective has dictated the design of field experiments for investigating stable nocturnal boundary layers.Tower-based micrometeorological data from three field campaigns are analysed to evaluate the vertically integrated sensible-heat budget for nocturnal stable conditions. Our analysis indicates frequent occurrence of large imbalance between the temperature tendency and vertical heat-flux divergence terms. The values of the radiative-flux divergence are generally too small and sometimes of the wrong sign to explain the residual. An analysis of random flux errors and uncertainties in the tendency term indicate that such errors cannot explain large imbalances, suggesting the importance of advection of temperature or possibly the divergence of mesoscale fluxes. The implied role of advection is consistent with circumstantial evidence. Even weak surface heterogeneity can create significant horizontal gradients in stable boundary layers. However, it is shown that existing field data and observational strategy do not allow adequate evaluation of advection and mesoscale flux divergence terms.

Assessing Inter-Sensor Variability and Sensible Heat Flux Derivation Accuracy for a Large Aperture Scintillometer  

PubMed Central

The accuracy in determining sensible heat flux (H) of three Kipp and Zonen large aperture scintillometers (LAS) was evaluated with reference to an eddy covariance (EC) system over relatively flat and uniform grassland near Timpas (CO, USA). Other tests have revealed inherent variability between Kipp and Zonen LAS units and bias to overestimate H. Average H fluxes were compared between LAS units and between LAS and EC. Despite good correlation, inter-LAS biases in H were found between 6% and 13% in terms of the linear regression slope. Physical misalignment was observed to result in increased scatter and bias between H solutions of a well-aligned and poorly-aligned LAS unit. Comparison of LAS and EC H showed little bias for one LAS unit, while the other two units overestimated EC H by more than 10%. A detector alignment issue may have caused the inter-LAS variability, supported by the observation in this study of differing power requirements between LAS units. It is possible that the LAS physical misalignment may have caused edge-of-beam signal noise as well as vulnerability to signal noise from wind-induced vibrations, both having an impact on the solution of H. In addition, there were some uncertainties in the solutions of H from the LAS and EC instruments, including lack of energy balance closure with the EC unit. However, the results obtained do not show clear evidence of inherent bias for the Kipp and Zonen LAS to overestimate H as found in other studies. PMID:24473285

Sense and Sensibility: The Case for the Nationwide Inclusion of Engineering in the K-12 Curriculum  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The competitive status of the United States is inextricably linked to innovation just as innovation is inseparable from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. To stay competitive in innovation requires that the United States produce a 21st century workforce complete with requisite education, training, skills, and motivation. If we accept a priori that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education are crucial to competitiveness and innovation and that, in terms of innovation, mathematics, science, and engineering are interdependent, why are mathematics and science uniformly ubiquitous in the K-12 curriculum while engineering is conspicuously absent? We are passionate in our belief that the uniform addition of engineering to the K-12 curriculum will help ensure that the nation has "the right" 21st Century workforce. Furthermore, we believe that a nationwide effort, led by a coalition of engineering academics, practitioners, and societies is required to turn this goal into reality. However, accomplishing this goal necessitates, as we are reminded by the title of Jane Austen's timeless novel, "Sense and Sensibility", a workable solution that seeks the "middle ground" between passion and reason. We begin our paper by making two essential points: Engineers are not scientists. Engineering exists separate from science, has its own specialized knowledge community apart from science, and it is largely responsible for many of the most significant advancements and improvements in the quality of our life. Our workable solution requires that K-12 education, nationwide, accommodate the inclusion of engineering as a stand alone curriculum and we offer three reasons to support our position: (1) workforce development, (2) stimulating interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) courses and careers, and (3) creating a technologically literate society. We conclude with some thoughts on how this important goal can be accomplished.

Numerical evaluation of subsurface soil water evaporation derived from sensible heat balance  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A recently introduced measurement approach allows in situ determination of subsurface soil water evaporation by means of heat-pulse probes (HPP). The latent heat component of subsurface evaporation is estimated from the residual of the sensible heat balance. This heat balance method requires measurement of vertical soil temperature and estimates of thermal properties for soil water evaporation determination. Our objective was to employ numerically simulated thermal and hydraulic processes using constant or diurnally cycled surface boundary conditions to evaluate and understand this technique. Three observation grid spacings, namely, 6 mm (tri-needle HPP), 3 mm (penta-needle HPP) and 1 mm, along with three soil textures (sand, silt, and silty clay) were used to test the heat balance method. The comparison of heat balance-based evaporation rate estimates with an independent soil profile water balance revealed substantial errors when thermal conductivity ? was averaged spatially across the evaporation front. Since the conduction component of heat flux is the dominant process at the evaporation front, the estimation of evaporation rate was significantly improved using depth-dependent ? instead of a space-averaged ?. A near-surface "undetectable zone" exists, where the heat balance calculation is irreconcilable, resulting in underestimation of total subsurface evaporation. The method performs better for medium- and coarse-textured soils than for fine-textured soils, where portions of the drying front may be maintained longer within the undetectable zone. Using smaller temperature sensor spacing near the soil surface minimized underestimation from the undetectable zone and improved accuracy of total subsurface evaporation rate estimates.

Turbulent Fluxes of Sensible Heat Measured by Research UAV 'M2AV Carolo'  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Research aircraft equipped for turbulence measurements in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) are suitable platforms to measure area-representative mean values and statistical moments of second order - like variance, spectral distribution and turbulent fluxes - in situ i.e. without the use of any theoretical assumptions. Since manned research aircraft are expensive the use of small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or mini aerial vehicles (MAV) is attractive. Such research UAV are able to measure vertical profiles of the lower troposphere, for instance. The next, more challenging league is the measurement of the turbulent fluctuations of the wind vector and simultaneously at least one scalar quantity in order to calculate turbulent fluxes using eddy covariance. To do this, fast and accurate sensors are required, with small weight, small dimensions and small power consumption, in order to be operated on a small research UAV. Beside absolute and relative measurement accuracy, the response time of the sensors has to be short (in the order of several 10 Hz) to resolve turbulent eddies also in stable stratification (i.e. sub-metre range). Since light, small and fast sensors for air humidity and trace gases are not available currently, the first step is to measure the vertical flux of sensible heat H. Beside a slow (about 1 Hz) water vapour sensor, the automatically operating meteorological mini aerial vehicles (M2AV) are equipped with two temperature sensors and a wind measurement unit. One of the temperature sensors is slow but offers a high absolute accuracy, while the fast sensor (up to 100 Hz) has a high relative accuracy but is unstable in time. The two signals are blended using a complementary filter. The wind vector can be calculated using the inertial velocity (aircraft speed relative to the earth) and the true airspeed (aircraft speed relative to the airflow). The true airspeed of M2AV is computed from five-hole-probe pressure measurements whereas the aircraft inertial velocity, position, and attitude is calculated by combining data from a global positioning system (GPS) and an inertial navigation system (INS). Both the temperature and the wind units were calibrated in several wind tunnels and in-flight, using specially designed flight patterns, also in comparison with a 99-m tower of the German Meteorological Service (DWD). Measured time series are analysed in several ways. Fourier-based power spectra allow the identification of any harmonic distortion of the signal. Any deviation from Kolmogorov's law - to identify how far the inertia subrange of turbulence was resolved - is better identified using structure functions. The presentation will also show first results, in terms of turbulent heat fluxes, from LITFASS-2009 campaign.

Limits of deterministic predictability in limited area models due to sensible dependence on initial conditions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the late 50ies and the 60ies the limit of predictability of weather has been shown to be 5 to 14 days by theoretical and numerical studies as consequence of sensible dependence on initial conditions. The simulation of an ensemble is the standard approach to address this uncertainty. Climatological means over time scales of 30 years are regarded as 'certain' under constant climate forcing conditions. A systematic analysis of predictability limits on different space and time scales in the earth system is still missing. It is relevant in particular for time scales between the time scales of weather and climate and helps avoiding misinterpretation of the results and/or to find an optimal configuration for the ensemble. In terms of statistics, the predictability of weather can be associated with the predictability of 6h and 100 km mean values. In mid latitudes it reaches a saturation value at the time scale of baroclinic instability Ti of 3-5 days. In the case of a purely stochastic process, this uncertainty is decreasing with N- where N is the number of instability time periods. One of the open questions is, which field variables exhibit a purely stochastic behavior and where. The application of Earth System Models is computationally demanding. Chaotic behavior may occur in some regions at certain conditions affecting the analysis. A huge number of degrees of freedom makes very long simulation times necessary. The application of limited area modeling opens the opportunity to analyse the behavior in different regions independently und thus to investigate the stochastic properties in different climates. Three different regions Europe, Africa and Central America have been simulated twice (reference and disturbance run) at standard grid resolution of 18 to 25 km using the community model COSMO-CLM. In Europe a purely stochastic behavior was found for the momentum, pressure and precipitation. A strong memory effect was found for soil moisture and temperature and a weak memory effect for the atmospheric temperature. The analysis of the simulation for Africa and Meso-America is ongoing. Predictability limits for different thresholds and variables can be calculated in terms of the ensemble size needed to keep the uncertainty below the threshold. Such maps will be presented and the differences between the variables and regions will be discussed.

Advances in estimating the climate sensibility of a large lake using scenario simulations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The vertical mixing behaviour of large deep lakes as e.g. Lake Constance is reflecting the long-term meteorological conditions and therefore is likely to be sensible to climate change. Today, Lake Constance does not mix completely every year, but only once in 2-3 years, which leads to the typical saw-tooth pattern in the deep water temperature. Whether complete mixing does occur is not only depending on the meteorological conditions in the respective winter period, but also on the thermal conditions in the lake and hence on the meteorological conditions in the preceding years. The lake's response to climate change thus depends on the temperature increase itself as well as on its gradient and on the inter-annual variability of the meteorological variables. Last year we showed first steps towards a model system to evaluate possible effects of climate change on Lake Constance: The Vector-Autoregressive Weathergenerator VG produces time series of meteorological data, which are used as boundary conditions for the 3D hydrodynamic lake model ELCOM (Centre of Water Research, University of Western Australia). As VG gives the opportunity to change mean and variability of selected variables, "What if?" - scenarios for process understanding can be performed. The time scales of variability turned out to be a critical point in the artificial time series for modelling the hydrodynamics of Lake Constance, as the big water body integrates over time and thus the hydrodynamics overlook the variability of air temperature on short time scales. Therefore, VG was developed further, especially with respect to the time scales of variability. While for heat input, the time scale of several days to weeks seems to be more important, wind and, when biology is modelled, short-wave radiation should be given at a sub-daily timestep. Besides producing user-defined scenario time-series, VG can also be used to stochastical downscale output of global climate model IPCC scenarios for lake modelling. The poster " Simulating the effect of meteorological variability on a lake ecosystem" by Marieke Anna Frassl in this session "Lakes and Inland Seas" shows lake model runs focusing on water quality and ecosystem behavior under different climate change scenarios. For further information on VG see "Stochastic Downscaling for Hydrodynamic and Ecological Modeling of Lakes" by Dirk Schlabing in Session "Hydroclimatic stochastics" (HS7.5 / NP8.3).

Some safe and sensible shortcuts for efficiently upscaled updates of existing elevation models.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Danish national elevation model, DK-DEM, was introduced in 2009 and is based on LiDAR data collected in the time frame 2005-2007. Hence, DK-DEM is aging, and it is time to consider how to integrate new data with the current model in a way that improves the representation of new landscape features, while still preserving the overall (very high) quality of the model. In LiDAR terms, 2005 is equivalent to some time between the palaeolithic and the neolithic. So evidently, when (and if) an update project is launched, we may expect some notable improvements due to the technical and scientific developments from the last half decade. To estimate the magnitude of these potential improvements, and to devise efficient and effective ways of integrating the new and old data, we currently carry out a number of case studies based on comparisons between the current terrain model (with a ground sample distance, GSD, of 1.6 m), and a number of new high resolution point clouds (10-70 points/m2). Not knowing anything about the terms of a potential update project, we consider multiple scenarios ranging from business as usual: A new model with the same GSD, but improved precision, to aggressive upscaling: A new model with 4 times better GSD, i.e. a 16-fold increase in the amount of data. Especially in the latter case speeding up the gridding process is important. Luckily recent results from one of our case studies reveal that for very high resolution data in smooth terrain (which is the common case in Denmark), using local mean (LM) as grid value estimator is only negligibly worse than using the theoretically "best" estimator, i.e. ordinary kriging (OK) with rigorous modelling of the semivariogram. The bias in a leave one out cross validation differs on the micrometer level, while the RMSE differs on the 0.1 mm level. This is fortunate, since a LM estimator can be implemented in plain stream mode, letting the points from the unstructured point cloud (i.e. no TIN generation) stream through the processor, individually contributing to the nearest grid posts in a memory mapped grid file. Algorithmically this is very efficient, but it would be even more efficient if we did not have to handle so much data. Another of our recent case studies focuses on this. The basic idea is to ignore data that does not tell us anything new. We do this by looking at anomalies between the current height model and the new point cloud, then computing a correction grid for the current model. Points with insignificant anomalies are simply removed from the point cloud, and the correction grid is computed using the remaining point anomalies only. Hence, we only compute updates in areas of significant change, speeding up the process, and giving us new insight of the precision of the current model which in turn results in improved metadata for both the current and the new model. Currently we focus on simple approaches for creating a smooth update process for integration of heterogeneous data sets. On the other hand, as years go by and multiple generations of data become available, more advanced approaches will probably become necessary (e.g. a multi campaign bundle adjustment, improving the oldest data using cross-over adjustment with newer campaigns). But to prepare for such approaches, it is important already now to organize and evaluate the ancillary (GPS, INS) and engineering level data for the current data sets. This is essential if future generations of DEM users should be able to benefit from future conceptions of "some safe and sensible shortcuts for efficiently upscaled updates of existing elevation models".

Reconciling Latent and Sensible Energy Fluxes with Footprints in a Heterogeneous Landscape at an Urban-suburban Tower near Baltimore, Maryland  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Measurements of eddy-fluxes in an urban-suburban landscape may create technical difficulties as latent and sensible energy fluxes in the tower’s footprint are non-uniform. In an earlier study, we have found that the average vegetation cover surrounding the Cub Hill tower was 64 %; ranging from 46 to 77 % among 8 wind directions. We measured latent and sensible energy fluxes using a closed-path eddy-covariance system in the Cub Hill tower near Baltimore, Maryland. Half-hourly values of latent and sensible energy fluxes were stratified according to 24 15-degree bins of wind direction in each of the 16-day compositing periods for Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) during 3 years of study (2004 to 2006). We used the daytime latent and sensible energy fluxes in the multivariate regression analyses to model fluxes of water vapor or evapotranspiration (ET) and sensible heat (H) as functions of micrometeorological variables (net radiation, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and soil moisture), NDVI, and land cover. Empirical models are developed at 16-day intervals for each of the 24 bins of wind direction to establish the relationships between energy fluxes (i.e., latent and sensible) and footprints (i.e., micrometeorology, NDVI, and land cover) around the Cub Hill tower.

Comparing the Alteration of Nasal Tip Sensibility and Sensory Recovery Time following Open Rhinoplasty with and without Soft Tissue Removal  

PubMed Central

In this study we evaluated sensory alteration in nasal tip and adjacent upper columella (territory of external nasal nerve) after open rhinoplasty. Two groups were randomly selected, each containing 25 patients with thick nasal skin; sensory testing was done preoperatively in all patients; in group one, subdermal soft tissue in tip and supratip areas was removed but in group two no soft tissue removal was done; we compared sensory pressure threshold values 3 weeks and 6 months postoperatively. Results showed no statistical difference between the two groups in nasal skin sensibility at these times; also this study showed that 6 months after rhinoplasty normal sensation of nasal skin will be achieved.

Nerve conduction, tactile sensibility, and the electromyogram after suture or compression of peripheral nerve: a longitudinal study in man.  

PubMed Central

In three patients sequential studies were performed of sensory and motor conduction after complete section and suture of the median nerve at the wrist and in one patient after partial section of the nerve. The sensory potential evoked by stimuli to digits III and I and recorded proximal to the suture line at the wrist appeared after a delay of three to four months, corresponding to a growth rate of 1.5-2.0 mm per day. From early in the course of regeneration the sensory potential was dispersed in 40 components. In the adult patient the cumulative amplitude increased for two years slowly and thereafter at a two times faster rate. Amplitude and tactile sensibility were normal after 40 months, but the sensory potential was still five times more dispersed than normal. The overall increase in the amplitude of the sensory potentials in children aged 10 and 12 years was three times faster than in adults. In the adults and in the children the maximum sensory conduction velocity was 10-25% of normal. It then increased at 3% per month during the first two years, and thereafter 10 times slower. Forty months after suture in the adults and 13-19 months after suture in the children the conduction velocity had reached 65-75% of normal. The pattern of discrete electrical activity during voluntary effort and the prolonged duration of motor unit potentials indicate persistent enlargement of the reinnervated motor units by peripheral sprouting. The sensory potential recovered five times faster after a compressive nerve lesion than after section and suture as seen in another patient with an affection of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Normal tactile sensibility was attained 10 times faster than after section and suture. Maximum sensory and motor condution velocity recovered within one year from 60-70% to 80-90% of normal.

A benchmark-problem specification and calculation using SENSIBL, a one- and two-dimensional sensitivity and uncertainty analysis code of the AARE system  

SciTech Connect

The lack of suitable benchmark problems makes it difficult to test sensitivity codes with a covariance library. A benchmark problem has therefore been defined for one- and two-dimensional sensitivity and uncertainity analysis codes and code systems. The problem, representative of a fusion reactor blanket, has a simple, three-zone )tau)-z geometry containing a D-T fusion neutron source distributed in a central void region surrounded by a thick /sup 6/LiH annulus. The response of interest is the /sup 6/Li tritium production per source neutron, T/sub 6/. The calculation has been performed with SENSIBL using other codes from the AARE code system as a test of both SENSIBL and the linked, modular system. The caluclation was performed using the code system in the standard manner with a covariance data library in the COVFILS-2 format but modified to contain specifically tailored covariance data for H and /sup 6/Li (Path A). The calculation was also performed by a second method which uses specially perturbed H and Li cross sections (Path B). This method bypasses SENSIBL and allows a hand calculation of the benchmark T/sub 6/ uncertainties. The results of Path A and Path B were total uncertainties in T/sub 6/ of 0.21% and 0.19%, respectively. The closeness of the results for this challenging test gives confidence that SENSIBL and the AARE system will perform well for realistic sensitivity and uncertainty analyses

Estimating sensible heat exchange between screen-covered canopies and the atmosphere using the surface renewal technique  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Screenhouses and screen-covers are widely used in arid and semi-arid agriculture to protect crops from direct solar radiation and high wind speed, and to increase water use efficiency. However, accurate estimation of crop water use under screens is still a challenge. The most reliable method that directly measures evapotranspiration, the Eddy Covariance (EC), is both expensive and complex in data collection and processing. This renders it unfeasible for day to day use by farmers. A simpler alternative is the Surface Renewal (SR) technique which utilizes high frequency temperature readings of low-cost fine-wire thermocouples, to estimate the sensible heat flux. Assuming energy conservation and employing relatively cheap complementary measurements, the evapotranspiration can be estimated. The SR technique uses a structure function mathematical analysis that filters out noise and involves a time lag parameter to provide amplitude and time period of a ramp-like temperature signal. This behavior arises from the detachment of air parcels that have been heated or cooled near the surface and sequentially renewed by air parcels from above. While the SR technique is relatively simple to employ, it requires calibration against direct measurements. The aim of this research is to investigate the applicability of the SR technique in screenhouses in two different climatic regions in Israel. Two field campaigns were carried out: In the first campaign we studied a banana plantation grown in a shading screenhouse in the coastal plane of northern Israel. In the second campaign a pepper plantation cultivated in an insect-proof screenhouse in the Jordan Valley region of eastern Israel was examined. In the two campaigns, SR sensible heat flux estimates were calibrated against simultaneous eddy covariance measurements. To optimize the SR operation, in each campaign fine-wire (50 - 78 ?m) exposed T-type thermocouples were placed at several heights. Thermocouple output was continuously recorded at 10 Hz and data analysis was performed at 10, 5, 2 and 1 Hz to examine the validity of low frequency data acquisition. Results for daytime hours revealed temperature ramp amplitudes of up to 2°C. Best linear regressions between EC and SR sensible heat fluxes during validation were obtained for the thermocouples located adjacent to the screen, for both banana and pepper screenhouses. The coefficients of determination were generally higher for the banana than the pepper screenhouses. This was due to the effect of the insect-proof screen which induces a higher resistance to airflow than the light shading screen that covers the banana plantation. At both campaigns, results were better for unstable than for stable boundary layers. At stable conditions, and at unstable conditions above the canopy, low frequency data analysis produced reasonable results, such that 2 Hz analysis performed as good as 10 Hz. Parameters like turbulence intensity, two-point correlation and quadrant analysis illustrate the effect of the two different screenhouses on turbulence characteristics of the flow.

Evaluation of sensible heat fluxes derived from Large Aperture Scintillometer measurements over irrigated and dryland cotton during BEAREX08  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The path integrating capabilities of scintillometer over heterogeneous landscapes makes it a powerful tool for validating satellite-based evapotranspiration (ET) maps. Numerous studies have evaluated the accuracy of sensible heat fluxes (H) derived from Large Aperture Scintillometer (LAS) measurements using eddy covariance (EC) measurements. EC systems have the energy balance closure problem (Rn-H-LE-G?0) up to 20 percent. For that reason we chose to evaluate the accuracy of the LAS-based ET fluxes against lysimeter data. Data used in this study was collected during the Bushland Evapotranspiration and Agricultural Remote Sensing Experiment 2008 (BEAREX08). The BEAREX08 was conducted at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Research Laboratory (CPRL) in Bushland [350 11' N, 1020 06' W; 1,170 m elevation MSL] located in the semi-arid Southern High Plains of Texas, USA during the 2008 summer cropping season. The CPRL is equipped with four large (3 x 3 x 2.5 m) monolithic lysimeters, with each lysimeter located in the center of 210 x 225 m fields arranged in a block pattern. One LAS was deployed across two dryland lysimeter fields (designated as NW and SW) and another on two irrigated lysimeter fields (designated as NE and SE), and all four fields were planted to cotton. The structure parameter of the refractive index of air was monitored at a 1-min interval and averaged for 15-minute periods between 10 July and 30 August, synchronized with weather station and lysimeter measurements. In addition, net radiation (Rn) and soil heat fluxes (G) were measured in all four lysimeter fields. Sensible heat fluxes (H) were derived from LAS measurements using a heat flux source area function and estimated ET fluxes as a residual from the energy balance were compared against lysimeter data. Trends in the LAS-based ET fluxes closely followed those in the observed data. However, LAS-based ET fluxes were over predicted by 10-35%. Differences between lysimeter- and LAS-based ET estimates over dryland cotton may be partly due to non-uniform vegetation growth on the NW and SW lysimeter fields. Overall, results indicate that the LAS is a promising tool for estimating ET fluxes.

Multi-Scale Sensible Heat Fluxes in the Suburban Environment from Large-Aperture Scintillometry and Eddy Covariance  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Sensible heat fluxes () are determined using scintillometry and eddy covariance over a suburban area. Two large-aperture scintillometers provide spatially integrated fluxes across path lengths of 2.8 and 5.5 km over Swindon, UK. The shorter scintillometer path spans newly built residential areas and has an approximate source area of 2-4 , whilst the long path extends from the rural outskirts to the town centre and has a source area of around 5-10 . These large-scale heat fluxes are compared with local-scale eddy-covariance measurements. Clear seasonal trends are revealed by the long duration of this dataset and variability in monthly is related to the meteorological conditions. At shorter time scales the response of to solar radiation often gives rise to close agreement between the measurements, but during times of rapidly changing cloud cover spatial differences in the net radiation () coincide with greater differences between heat fluxes. For clear days lags , thus the ratio of to increases throughout the day. In summer the observed energy partitioning is related to the vegetation fraction through use of a footprint model. The results demonstrate the value of scintillometry for integrating surface heterogeneity and offer improved understanding of the influence of anthropogenic materials on surface-atmosphere interactions.

Thermoregulation during flight: body temperature and sensible heat transfer in free-ranging Brazilian free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis).  

PubMed

Bat wings are important for thermoregulation, but their role in heat balance during flight is largely unknown. More than 80% of the energy consumed during flight generates heat as a by-product, and thus it is expected that bat wings should dissipate large amounts of heat to prevent hyperthermia. We measured rectal (T(r)) and surface (T(s)) temperatures of Brazilian free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) as they emerged from and returned to their daytime roosts and calculated sensible heat transfer for different body regions (head, body, wings, and tail membrane). Bats' T(r) decreased from 36.8°C during emergence flights to 34.4°C during returns, and T(s) scaled positively with ambient temperature (T(a)). Total radiative heat loss from bats was significantly greater for a radiative sink to the night sky than for a sink with temperature equal to T(a). We found that free-ranging Brazilian free-tailed bats, on average, do not dissipate heat from their wings by convection but instead dissipate radiative heat (L) to the cloudless night sky during flight ([Formula: see text] W). However, within the range of T(a) measured in this study, T. brasiliensis experienced net heat loss between evening emergence and return flights. Regional hypothermia reduces heat loss from wings that are exposed to potentially high convective fluxes. Additional research is needed to establish the role of wings in evaporative cooling during flight in bats. PMID:21034204

Eddy covariance measurements of carbon dioxide, latent and sensible energy fluxes above a meadow on a mountain slope  

PubMed Central

Carbon dioxide, latent and sensible energy fluxes were measured by means of the eddy covariance method above a mountain meadow situated on a steep slope in the Stubai Valley/Austria, based on the hypothesis that, due to the low canopy height, measurements can be made in the shallow equilibrium layer where the wind field exhibits characteristics akin to level terrain. In order to test the validity of this hypothesis and to identify effects of complex terrain in the turbulence measurements, data were subjected to a rigorous testing procedure using a series of quality control measures established for surface layer flows. The resulting high-quality data set comprised 36 % of the original observations, the substantial reduction being mainly due to a change in surface roughness and associated fetch limitations in the wind sector dominating during nighttime and transition periods. The validity of the high-quality data set was further assessed by two independent tests: i) a comparison with the net ecosystem carbon dioxide exchange measured by means of ecosystem chambers and ii) the ability of the eddy covariance measurements to close the energy balance. The net ecosystem CO2 exchange measured by the eddy covariance method agreed reasonably with ecosystem chamber measurements. The assessment of the energy balance closure showed that there was no significant difference in the correspondence between the meadow on the slope and another one situated on flat ground at the bottom of the Stubai Valley, available energy being underestimated by 28 and 29 %, respectively. We thus conclude that, appropriate quality control provided, the eddy covariance measurements made above a mountain meadow on a steep slope are of similar quality as compared to flat terrain.

Improvements in Sensible Heat-Flux Parametrization in the High-Resolution Regional Model (HRM) Through the Modified Treatment of the Roughness Length for Heat  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We discuss the impact of the differential treatment of the roughness lengths for momentum and heat (z_{0m} and z_{0h}) in the flux parametrization scheme of the high-resolution regional model (HRM) for a heterogeneous terrain centred around Thiruvananthapuram, India (8.5°N, 76.9°E). The magnitudes of sensible heat flux ( H) obtained from HRM simulations using the original parametrization scheme differed drastically from the concurrent in situ observations. With a view to improving the performance of this parametrization scheme, two distinct modifications are incorporated: (1) In the first method, a constant value of 100 is assigned to the z_{0m}/z_{0h} ratio; (2) and in the second approach, this ratio is treated as a function of time. Both these modifications in the HRM model showed significant improvements in the H simulations for Thiruvananthapuram and its adjoining regions. Results obtained from the present study provide a first-ever comparison of H simulations using the modified parametrization scheme in the HRM model with in situ observations for the Indian coastal region, and suggest a differential treatment of z_{0m} and z_{0h} in the flux parametrization scheme.

The near-surface small-scale spatial and temporal variability of momentum, sensible and latent heat exchange in Arctic regions: a case study  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The coupling behaviour of the Arctic atmospheric boundary layer with surface processes in different atmospheric situations is important for their parameterizations in numerical weather prediction and regional climate models. Ny-Ålesund is already known as a place where boundary layer measurements are challenged by local orographical effects. In this work we present data from two eddy covariance systems for determining the sensible heat flux, latent heat flux and the shear stress near the earth's surface, one close to the village (position: 78° 55.287' N, 011° 54.851' E), the other one located on Kongsvegen glacier (position: 78° 84.70' N, 012° 66.76' E) which was operated for a short period in April 2011 contemporary to the Polar Airborne Measurements and Arctic Regional Climate Model Simulation Project (PAMARCMiP) 2011. Two examples for small-scale variability are discussed: near surface external gravity waves associated with katabatic wind from the Broggerbreen glacier at the site Ny-Ålesund and an episode when the two eddy system at the two measurement sites captured very different conditions at the same time. In case of gravity wave motion the eddy covariance method results in fictitious positive fluxes due to the strong correlation between temperature and vertical wind, which had to be considered carefully. The comparison between the two sites showed, that generally the exchange processes near Ny-Ålesund and the Kongsvegen glacier are different and local. But there are cases of synchronization due to synoptical influences, and then the same processes are visible at the two measurement sites. Both examples show that the boundary layer in Ny-Ålesund is not only influenced from neighbouring glaciers, but also by other orographical characteristics, sometimes synoptical influences play the major role. It is clearly visible, that general statements about the Arctic boundary layer are mostly difficult with single measurements in space and time due to the high variability of the surface properties and meteorological conditions in Arctic regions.

Problem drinking and exceeding guidelines for 'sensible' alcohol consumption in Scottish men: associations with life course socioeconomic disadvantage in a population-based cohort study  

PubMed Central

Background With surveys suggesting that exceeding guidelines for 'sensible' alcohol intake is commonplace, the health and social impact of modifying intake on a population level is potentially considerable. If public health interventions are to be successfully implemented, it is first important to identify correlates of such behaviours, including socioeconomic disadvantage. This was the aim of the present study. Methods Population-representative cohort study of 576 men from the West of Scotland. Data on life course socioeconomic position were collected in 1988 (at around 55 years of age). Alcohol consumption patterns (detailed seven day recall) and problem drinking (CAGE questionnaire) were ascertained in 1990/2 (at around 59 years of age). A relative index of inequality was computed to explore the comparative strength of different indicators of social circumstances from different periods of the life course. Results Socioeconomic adversity in both early life and in adulthood was related to an increased risk of exceeding the weekly and daily alcohol guidelines, with adult indicators of socioeconomic position revealing the strongest associations. Of these, material indicators of socioeconomic deprivation in adulthood – car ownership, housing tenure – were marginally more strongly related to heavy alcohol intake and problem drinking than education, income and occupational social class. A substantial proportion of the influence of early life deprivation on alcohol intake was mediated via adult socioeconomic position. Similar results were apparent when problem drinking was the outcome of interest. Conclusion In men in this cohort, exposure to disadvantaged social circumstances across the lifecourse, but particularly in adulthood, is associated with detrimental patterns of alcohol consumption and problem drinking in late middle age.

Observations of the scale-dependent turbulence and evaluation of the flux-gradient relationship for sensible heat for a closed Douglas-fir canopy in very weak wind conditions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Observations of the scale-dependent turbulent fluxes, variances, and the bulk transfer parameterization for sensible heat above, within, and beneath a tall closed Douglas-fir canopy in very weak winds are examined. The daytime sub-canopy vertical velocity spectra exhibit a double-peak structure with peaks at timescales of 0.8 s and 51.2 s. A double-peak structure is also observed in the daytime sub-canopy heat flux co-spectra. The daytime momentum flux co-spectra in the upper bole space and in the sub-canopy are characterized by a relatively large cross-wind component, likely due to the extremely light and variable winds, such that the definition of a mean wind direction, and subsequent partitioning of the momentum flux into along- and cross-wind components, has little physical meaning. Positive values of both momentum flux components in the sub-canopy contribute to upward transfer of momentum, consistent with the observed sub-canopy secondary wind speed maximum. For the smallest resolved scales in the canopy at nighttime, we find increasing vertical velocity variance with decreasing timescale, consistent with very small eddies possibly generated by wake shedding from the canopy elements that transport momentum, but not heat. Unusually large values of the velocity aspect ratio within the canopy were observed, consistent with enhanced suppression of the horizontal wind components compared to the vertical by the very dense canopy. The flux-gradient approach for sensible heat flux is found to be valid for the sub-canopy and above-canopy layers when considered separately in spite of the very small fluxes on the order of a few W m-2 in the sub-canopy. However, single-source approaches that ignore the canopy fail because they make the heat flux appear to be counter-gradient when in fact it is aligned with the local temperature gradient in both the sub-canopy and above-canopy layers. While sub-canopy Stanton numbers agreed well with values typically reported in the literature, our estimates for the above-canopy Stanton number were much larger, which likely leads to underestimated modeled sensible heat fluxes above dark warm closed canopies.

Determination of the Sensibility Factors for TLD-100 Powder on the Energy of X-Ray of 50, 250 kVp; 192Ir, 137Cs and 60Co  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

TLD-100 powder is calibrated in terms of absorbed dose to water Dw, using the protocols AAPM TG61, AAPM TG43 and IAEA-TRS 398, for the energy of RX 50, 250 kVp, 137Cs and 60Co respectively. The calibration curves, TLD Response R versus Dw, are fitted by weighted least square by a quadratic polynomials; which are validated with the lack of fit and the Anderson-Darling normality test. The slope of these curves corresponds to the sensibility factor: Fs = R/DW, [Fs] = nC Gy-1. The expanded uncertainties U's for these factors are obtained from the ANOVA tables. Later, the Fs' values are interpolated using the effective energy hvefec for the 192Ir. The SSDL sent a set of capsules with powder TLD-100 for two Hospitals. These irradiated them a nominal dose of Dw = 2 Gy. The results determined at SSDL are: for the Hospital A the Dw is overestimated in order to 4.8% and the Hospital B underestimates it in the range from -1.4% to -17.5%.

The psychopharmacology of violence: making sensible decisions.  

PubMed

Violent behavior associated with mental disorders is a common reason for admission to a psychiatric inpatient unit. Once hospitalized, patients may continue to be intermittently agitated and have persistent aggressive behaviors, preventing their discharge back into the community. Managing agitation quickly with effective pharmacological agents can avoid further escalation to aggression and violence. In the acute setting, this usually involves the parenteral use of antipsychotics, with or without benzodiazepines. Within the past decade, short-acting intramuscular formulations of second-generation antipsychotics have become available and provide a means to induce calm with a substantially lower risk of acute dystonia or akathisia compared with haloperidol. New alternative formulations that avoid injections include inhalation and sublingual administration. Longer-term management of persistent aggressive behavior by reducing the frequency and intensity of future episodes of agitation is more complex. In contrast to agitation associated with schizophrenia or bipolar mania, no agents have yet been approved by regulatory agencies for the treatment of persistent aggressive behavior. The strongest evidence supports the use of clozapine as an antihostility agent, followed by olanzapine. Adjunctive strategies with anticonvulsants and beta-adrenergic agents may also be worthwhile to consider. PMID:24571828

The invasion of non-native grasses into California grasslands has caused a shift in energy partitioning between latent and sensible heat flux, reduced albedo and higher surface temperatures  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In California, native grasses have been largely displaced across millions of acres of grassland habitat by the invasion of non-native grasses from Mediterranean Europe. Although seemingly subtle, this shift in grass species composition has altered the water and energy cycles in these ecosystems due to a shift in life cycle strategy. Native California grasses are perennial and long-lived. To survive California's long summer drought, they possess deep roots to harvest moisture along the full depth of the soil profile. Aboveground, most California perennial grasses are bunchy and dense, covering the ground and restricting soil evaporation. Their growing season extends over most of the year, thus maintaining an unbroken interaction along the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum, and enabling the plants to draw water from deep soil layers well into the dry summer. In contrast, the now-dominant non-native grasses are annuals. They grow from seed each year when Autumn rains begin, and die with the onset of summer drought. Aboveground, non-native annuals are sparse relative to native perennials, and possess a shallow root system with the large majority of root biomass above 20 cm depth. To determine the impact of this land cover shift on ecosystem water and energy cycles, we measured the components of the surface energy balance at a grassland site in northern coastal California where remnant perennial grasses are found growing alongside regions that have undergone non-native invasion. Specifically, in locations dominated by each grass type, we measured net radiation and ground and canopy heat flux through the surface renewal method. We also measured midday PAR albedo to determine the impact of grassland invasion on energy capture. In three years of measurements, corresponding to average, wet and dry years, we found that energy partitioning during the growing season is similar between grass types. However, once non-native annual grasses senesce in mid to late spring, the ratio of latent to sensible heat flux is higher where native perennial grasses are found, particularly in wet years. Annual sums of total evaporation are likewise higher in native-dominated regions, and soil moisture is lower relative to non-natives in the deep soil. We also found that PAR albedo is lower in native grasslands compared to non-natives during significant portions of the year, and corresponding to the hotter months. In all, our findings indicate that the non-native annual grasses which now dominate California grasslands, promote conditions that support higher surface temperatures relative to native perennial grasses.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper proposes the impact assessment of the jobs order in the optimal time of operations in a Flexible Job Shop Scheduling Problem. In this work a real assembly cell was studied: the AIP-PRIMECA cell at the Université de Valenciennes et du Hainaut-Cambrésis, in France, which is considered as a Flexible Job Shop problem. The problem consists in finding the machines operations schedule, taking into account the precedence constraints. The main objective is to minimize the batch makespan, i.e. the finish time of the last operation completed in the schedule. Shortly, the present study consists in evaluating if the jobs order affects the optimal time of the operations schedule. The genetic algorithm was used to solve the optimization problem. As a conclusion, it's assessed that the jobs order influence the optimal time.

Face Generation Using Emotional Regions for Sensibility Robot  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We think that psychological interaction is necessary for smooth communication between robots and people. One way to psychologically interact with others is through facial expressions. Facial expressions are very important for communication because they show true emotions and feelings. The ``Ifbot'' robot communicates with people by considering its own ``emotions''. Ifbot has many facial expressions to communicate enjoyment. We developed a method for generating facial expressions based on human subjective judgements mapping Ifbot's facial expressions to its emotions. We first created Ifbot's emotional space to map its facial expressions. We applied a five-layer auto-associative neural network to the space. We then subjectively evaluated the emotional space and created emotional regions based on the results. We generated emotive facial expressions using the emotional regions.

[Predicating the sensibility of patients with multiple myeloma to glucocorticoid by cochaperone P23].  

PubMed

This study was aimed to investigate the sensitive index for predicting the sensitivity of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) to glucocorticoid (GC). MM1.S, MM1.R cell lines and 10 MM patients sensitive or non-sensitive to GC were enrolled in this study. The expression of heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) and P23 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNC) of MM patients was detected by Western blot, and its relation with GC resistance was explored. The results showed that there were no differences in HSP90, GR and I?B-? expressions among MM1.S, MM1.R, PBMNC of normal persons and MM patients, while there was apparent difference in P23; along with increasing of dexamethasone dose, the survival rate of MM1.S decreased, but that of MM1.R did not change so obviously. Among 7 cases with P23 low expression, combination treatment scheme with GC was effective in 6 cases (86%), uneffective in 1 cases (14%); while among 3 cases with P23 high expression, 1 cases (33%) showed effective to combination treatment with GC, 2 cases (67%) showed uneffective (P < 0.05). It is concluded that the P23 expression may predict the sensitivity of MM patients to GC and may be used as index for guiding clinical treatment. PMID:22391176

Sensible and latent heat transfer in cross-counterflow gas-to-gas heat exchangers  

SciTech Connect

Simultaneous heat and mass transfer during condensation in cross-counterflow gas-to-gas heat exchangers has been analyzed. The coupled heat and mass transfer equations are derived for boundary-layer controlled heat and mass transfer and include longitudinal heat conduction in the exchanger wall. A numerical method of the finite-difference type is applied to the steady-state performance. Temperature and absolute humidity distributions are calculated for exchanger parameters that are typical in air conditioning systems. Temperature and humidity efficiencies together with frosting limits are evaluated for different inlet air conditions.

Sensible Treatment of Obesity in Rural Youth (STORY): Design and Methods  

PubMed Central

Project STORY is a 3-arm, randomized, planning and feasibility study assessing the effectiveness of two behavioral weight management interventions in an important and at-risk population, overweight children and their parents in medically underserved rural counties. Participants will include 90 parent-child dyads from rural counties in north central Florida. Families will be randomized to one of three conditions: (a) a Family-Based Behavioral Group Intervention, (b) a Parent-Only Behavioral Group Intervention, and (c) a waitlist control condition. Child and parent participants will be assessed at baseline (month 0), post-treatment (month 4) and follow-up (month 10). Assessment and intervention sessions will be held at Cooperative Extension offices within each local participating county. The primary outcome measure is change in child body mass index (BMI) z-score. Additional key outcome measures include child dietary intake, physical activity, self-esteem, body image, and parent BMI. The goals of the study are to (a) assess the feasibility of recruitment in rural settings, (b) develop and evaluate training protocol for group leaders, (c) determine strategies to increase adherence to monitoring and goal setting protocol, (d) evaluate strategies for participant retention, (e) assess the relative cost-effectiveness of the interventions, (f) assess the acceptability of the intervention to families and Cooperative Extension administrators and personnel, and (g) if successful, estimate the sample size needed for a full scale trial. This research has potential implications for medically underserved rural communities with limited resources and preventive health care services. If successful, a Parent-Only intervention program may provide a cost-effective and practical intervention for families in underserved rural communities. PMID:17588503

Application of the Development in Environment Measurement and Sensibility Nano-Sensing  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recently, environmental pollution is social problem with nano materials and food contamination is a new social problem. On the other hand, the complaint related to the offensive odor in Japan exceeded 20,000 affairs in 1998, and these problems are not solved. The odor sensing system for detecting and control an offensive odor at an early stage is required. The sensing system using the sense of odor known as one of the fifth senses of human is proposed to these demands. Especially as for e-NOSE system, application will be expected from now on in many fields, such as medical diagnosis, health monitoring, environment, food, robot and a car. The sensing technology in which an electrochemical sensor called quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) is mainly used is making detection mechanisms, such as an electrode and a detection thin film on the nano-level. Therefore, detection films of sensor depend on the characteristic of the sensing devices using on material and processing technology. That the new technology sensor is asked can detect extremely low concentration from ppm to ppb level, and it is the sensor with low influence of environment, such as a gas of the outside for detection, temperature and humidity.

Sense or Sensibility?: How Commitment Mediates the Role of Self-Service Technology on Loyalty  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It has been well documented that employing self-service technology (SST) results in considerable cost savings but few studies have examined its impact on consumers’ behavior. We apply a well-recognized model from the field of services marketing in an SST context. We examine how the established relationships between satisfaction, affective and calculative commitments, and loyalty are affected when the service is provided through a technology interface as opposed to service personnel. We then present two alternative perspectives on the role of SST. The first is based on the predominant assumption that SST is a moderator of the relationship between customer loyalty and its drivers, while the other rests on the assumption that SST is just another context and that its role in affecting customer loyalty is mediated by drivers of loyalty. A cross-sectional study conducted in the banking industry shows that SST does not change everything. The classical model of how customers evaluate services and the predictors of loyalty are replicated in the SST setting. Interestingly, SST does not have a direct influence on loyalty by itself but its effects are mediated by commitment. However, it is the affective commitment that is more important in forming loyalty toward the service provider.

This column describes federal and state laws to restrict access to firearms among people with mental illness. The contribution to public safety of these laws is likely to be small because only 3%-5% of violent acts are attributable to serious mental illness, and most do not involve guns. The categories of persons with mental illnesses targeted by the laws may not be at higher risk of violence than other subgroups in this population. The laws may deter people from seeking treatment for fear of losing the right to possess firearms and may reinforce stereotypes of persons with mental illnesses as dangerous. PMID:20591996

Energy balance components obtained over five grass-covered sloping surfaces near Manhattan, KS, using the Bowen ratio energy balance technique with the instruments mounted horizontally were compared with calculated values when the instruments were mounted parallel to the surfaces. Hourly values of the components changed when the instruments were parallel to the surfaces. The changes were larger at low solar angles (spring and fall) and on steeper slopes. An area average of daylight totals, assuming that all aspects were equally represented, changed only 0.1 percent on June 6 and 2.3 percent on October 11. The calculations, extended to steeper slopes, indicated small changes in the daylight totals for slopes of less than 10 deg.

Realities of weather extremes on daily life in urban India - How quantified impacts infer sensible adaptation options  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Emerging and developing economies are currently undergoing one of the profoundest socio-spatial transitions in their history, with strong urbanization and weather extremes bringing about changes in the economy, forms of living and living conditions, but also increasing risks and altered social divides. The impacts of heat waves and strong rain events are therefore differently perceived among urban residents. Addressing the social differences of climate change impacts1 and expanding targeted adaptation options have emerged as urgent policy priorities, particularly for developing and emerging economies2. This paper discusses the perceived impacts of weather-related extreme events on different social groups in New Delhi and Hyderabad, India. Using network statistics and scenario analysis on Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCMs) as part of a vulnerability analysis, the investigation provides quantitative and qualitative measures to compare impacts and adaptation strategies for different social groups. Impacts of rain events are stronger than those of heat in both cities and affect the lower income classes particularly. Interestingly, the scenario analysis (comparing altered networks in which the alteration represents a possible adaptation measure) shows that investments in the water infrastructure would be most meaningful and more effective than investments in, e.g., the traffic infrastructure, despite the stronger burden from traffic disruptions and the resulting concentration of planning and policy on traffic ease and investments. The method of Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping offers a link between perception and modeling, and the possibility to aggregate and analyze the views of a large number of stakeholders. Our research has shown that planners and politicians often know about many of the problems, but are often overwhelmed by the problems in their respective cities and look for a prioritization of adaptation options. FCM provides this need and identifies priority adaptation options when resources are scarce. 1 Parry ML, Canziani OF, Palutikof JP, van der Linden PJ, Hanson CE (eds) (2007) Contribution of Working Group II to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

General Relativity Without Paradigm of Space-Time Covariance:. Sensible Quantum Gravity and Resolution of the "problem of Time"  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Covariance of space and time in General Relativity (GR) entails a number of technical and conceptual difficulties. Remarkably, these can be resolved by a paradigm shift from full 4-dimensional general coordinate invariance to invariance only with respect to spatial diffeomorphisms. The framework for a theory of gravity with this paradigm shift, from quantum to classical regimes, is presented; GR is contained as a special case. Appositely formulated as a master constraint, the Hamiltonian constraint now determines only dynamics; and is relieved of its dual role of generating symmetry transformations. The Dirac algebra, in which 4-dimensional diffeomorphism symmetry is only realized on-shell, is replaced by the master constraint algebra which possesses only spatial diffeomorphism gauge symmetry, both on- and off-shell. Decomposition of the spatial metric into unimodular and determinant, q, factors results in mutually commuting pairs of canonical variables. The classical content of GR can be captured with a Hamiltonian constraint linear in the trace of the momentum. This implies a theory of quantum gravity can be described by a Schrodinger equation first order in intrinsic time ln q accompanied with positive semi-definite probability density. The semi-classical Hamilton-Jacobi equation is also first order in intrinsic time, with the implication of being complete; and gauge-invariant physical observables can be constructed from integration constants of its complete integral solution. Classical space-time, with direct correlation of its proper times and intrinsic time intervals, emerges from constructive interference; and the physical content of GR can be regained from a theory with a true Hamiltonian generating intrinsic time translations, but with only spatial diffeomorphism symmetry. The framework also prompts natural extensions towards a well-behaved quantum theory of gravity.

ADMA Products’s metal foil-like membrane consists of a paper thin, porous metal sheet coated with a layer of water-loving molecules. This new membrane allows water vapor to permeate across the membrane at high fluxes and at the same time, blocks air penetration efficiently resulting in high selectivity. The high selectivity of the membrane translates to less energy use, while the high permeation fluxes result in a more compact device. The new materials and the flat foil-like nature of the membrane facilitate the mass production of a low-coast compact dehumidification device

This article reconsiders on two counts the highly influential and eloquent interpretation of Barrett Browning's poetic engagement with the Risorgimento offered by Sandra Gilbert, who sees her personal and professional rejuvenation in direct correspondence with the Risorgimento. Firstly, her poetic response to Italian politics radically alters between her elopement to Italy in 1846 and her death in 1861, in contradistinction

Programmable writing of graphene oxide/reduced graphene oxide fibers for sensible networks with in situ welded junctions.  

PubMed

Direct spinning of the graphene oxide (GO) dispersions from a moveable spinneret along the programmed track, i.e., a "programmable writing" technique, was developed to make nonwoven, nonknitted, graphene-based networks with excellent mechanical properties. The resulting GO networks can be successfully converted into reduced GO (RGO) ones with better mechanical properties as well as excellent electrical conductivity via thermal/chemical reduction. In situ welded junctions formed during processing of the spun fibers have made the resulting networks with the integral structure, and outstanding mechanical properties and high electrical conductivities of the spun fibers and their web integrations have provided a great opportunity to remotely sense the external mechanical stimuli via electrical signal monitoring.

Observation of Sensible and Latent Heat Fluxes Over a Mixed Savanna - Agricultural Catchment in the Semi-Arid Sudanian Savanna, Burkina Faso  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Evaporation and the surface energy balance over two land cover types in Sudanian savanna were investigated in terms of their seasonal and interannual variability using four years of eddy covariance measurement (2009-2013). The observations demonstrate the strong controls on evaporation by vegetation through modification of the surface roughness, albedo, and available moisture related to seasonal variations in land cover and topography. Two characteristic land uses of semi-arid West Africa (Burkina Faso) were monitored: agricultural fields and gallery forest. The sites receive around 800 mm of rain most years, typically between the months of May and October, with up to approximately 20% being transferred to runoff. Seasonal variation in all components of the energy balance was found to be greater over the agricultural landscape, the total latent energy flux over the gallery forest was higher by approximately 30%, and the evaporative fraction was more dependent on soil moisture in the agricultural fields. According to the diurnal behavior of the evaporative fraction, we isolate constant periods that we compare with measures of cloudy sky, NDVI and soil moisture. We identify predictors of diurnal variation of the evaporative fraction according to land cover, which allows incorporation of remote sensing and satellite data. Improved understanding of the variability of fluxes over diverse land cover will allow us to improve the estimation of evaporation to the atmosphere over the entire watershed. Ongoing outreach projects accompany this research to integrate findings with local knowledge to improve resilience of small-scale rain fed agriculture.

L'utilisation de la polarimetrie radar et de la decomposition de Touzi pour la caracterisation et la classification des physionomies vegetales des milieux humides : le cas du lac Saint-Pierre  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Wetlands fill many important ecological functions and contribute to the biodiversity of fauna and flora. Although there is a growing recognition of the importance to protect these areas, it remains that their integrity is still threatened by the pressure of human activities. The inventory and the systematic monitoring of wetlands are a necessity and remote sensing is the only realistic way to achieve this goal. The primary objective of this thesis is to contribute and improve the wetland characterization using satellite polarimetric data acquired in L (ALOS-PALSAR) and C (RADARSAT-2) band. This thesis is based on two hypotheses (Ch. 1). The first hypothesis stipulate that classes of plant physiognomies, based on plant structure, are more appropriate than classes of plant species because they are best adapted to the information content of polarimetric radar data. The second hypothesis states that polarimetric decomposition algorithms allow an optimal extraction of polarimetric information compared to a multi-polarized approach based on the HH, HV and VV channels (Ch. 3). In particular, the contribution of the incoherent Touzi decomposition for the inventory and monitoring of wetlands is examined in detail. This decomposition allows the characterization of the scattering type, its phase, orientation, symmetry, degree of polarization and the backscattered power of a target with a series of parameters extracted from an analysis of the coherency matrix eigenvectors and eigenvalues. The lake Saint-Pierre region was chosen as the study site because of the great diversity of its wetlands that are covering more than 20 000 ha. One of the challenges posed by this thesis is that there is neither a standard system enumerating all the possible physiognomic classes nor an accurate description of their characteristics and dimensions. Special attention was given to the creation of these classes by combining several data sources and more than 50 plant species were grouped into nine physiognomic classes (Ch. 7, 8 and 9). Several analyzes are proposed to validate the hypotheses of this thesis (Ch. 9). Sensitivity analysis using scatter plots are performs to study the characteristics and dispersion of plant physiognomic classes in various features space consisting of polarimetric parameters or polarization channels (Ch. 10 and 12). Time series of made of RADARSAT-2 images are used to deepen the understanding of the seasonal evolution of plant physiognomies (Ch. 12). The transformed divergence algorithm is used to quantify the separability between physiognomic classes and to identify the parameters (s) that contribute the most to their separability (Ch. 11 and 13). Classifications are also proposed and the results compared to an existing map of the lake Saint-Pierre wetlands (Ch. 14). Finally, an analysis of the potential of polarimetric parameters in C and L-band is proposed for the monitoring of peatlands hydrology (Ch. 15 and 16). Sensitivity analyses show that the parameters of the 1st component, relative to the dominant (polarized) part of the signal, are sufficient for a general characterization of plant physiognomies. The parameters of the second and third components are, however, needed for better class separability (Ch. 11 and 13) and a better discrimination between wetlands and uplands (Ch. 14). This thesis shows that it is preferable to consider individually the parameters of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd components rather than their weighted sum by their respective eigenvalues (Ch. 10 and 12). This thesis also examines the complementarity between the structural parameters and those related to the backscattered power, often ignored and normalized by most polarimetric decomposition.

Recent work at the Centre for Building Studies of Concordia University on the incorporation of various phase change materials (PCMs) in gypsum wallboard has resulted in the addition of their latent heat values to the sensible heat storage value of wallboard. In this way its heat storage

[Therapy verification film for field control during cobalt-60 radiotherapy].  

PubMed

The therapy-verification-film RP/V X-omat, which the Society Kodak produces, is a gamma ray sensible film, which because of its relative non-sensibility by irradiation of about 25-150 r, presents a density of S =0,7 to S = 3,9 and is good exploitable. Therefore, it is appropriated to the field controls during the radiotherapy especially for the mantel field technique. It represents a good complement of the gamma ray sensible film RPTL.

Dental Pulp Testing: A Review  

PubMed Central

Dental pulp testing is a useful and essential diagnostic aid in endodontics. Pulp sensibility tests include thermal and electric tests, which extrapolate pulp health from sensory response. Whilst pulp sensibility tests are the most commonly used in clinical practice, they are not without limitations and shortcomings. Pulp vitality tests attempt to examine the presence of pulp blood flow, as this is viewed as a better measure of true health than sensibility. Laser Doppler flowmetry and pulse oximetry are examples of vitality tests. Whilst the prospect is promising, there are still many practical issues that need to be addressed before vitality tests can replace sensibility tests as the standard clinical pulp diagnostic test. With all pulp tests, the results need to be carefully interpreted and closely scrutinised as false results can lead to misdiagnosis which can then lead to incorrect, inappropriate, or unnecessary treatment.

Blood flow dynamics and sensitivity in breasts after reconstruction with DIEP-flap.  

PubMed

Abstract A method of breast reconstruction is based on the Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) technique. Skin and fat are transplanted from the abdomen to the chest; blood vessels are reconnected through microsurgery. Nerves are, however, left unconnected. This study aims to evaluate the blood flow and reinnervation of blood vessels and skin in breasts reconstructed by DIEP flaps without neural repair. In all, DIEP flaps of 10 patients were tested at an average of 16.3 months postoperatively. Blood flow was assessed by PeriScan PIM II System, both before and after indirect heating. Tactile perception threshold was assessed by Semmes-Weinstein monofilament and thermal sensibility by SENSELab MSA Thermotest. The patients' contralateral breasts were used as controls. The blood flow of the flaps was statistically significantly lower than in the control breasts, both before and after indirect heating. The change in blood flow after indirect heating did, however, not significantly differ when comparing the breasts. All flaps regained deep pressure sensibility in all four quadrants. Five patients regained even better sensibility in one of their quadrants. Seven patients regained perception of cold stimuli, five perceived warmth. This study has shown that skin blood flow regulation is present in DIEP flaps 1 year after reconstruction. Blood flow dynamics are very similar to those in the normal breast. There is also a recovery of tactile and thermal sensibility, but this study has not shown any clear parallels between recovery blood flow, tactile sensibility and thermal sensibility. PMID:24693867

Comparative Analysis of Evapotranspiration Using Eddy Covariance  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The eddy covariance method has been widely used to quantify evapotranspiration. However, independent measurements of energy components such as latent heat flux, sensible heat flux often lead to under-measurements, this is commonly known as a lack of closure of the surface energy balance. In response to this methodological problem, this study is addressed specifically to correction of the latent and heat sensible fluxes. The energy components observed in agricultural and grassland from January 2013 were measured using the eddy covariance method. As a result of the comparison of the available energy (Rn-G) with the sum of the latent and sensible heat fluxes, R-Squared values were 0.72 in the agricultural land, 0.78 in the grassland, indicating that the latent and sensible heat fluxes were under-measured. The obtained latent and sensible heat fluxes were then modified using the Bowen-ratio closure method. After this correction process, the values of the sum of the latent and sensible heat fluxes have increased by 39.7 percent in the agricultural land, 32.2 percent in the grassland respectively. Evapotranspiration will be calculated with both the unmodified and modified latent heat flux values, the results will be then thoroughly compared. The results will be finally verified by comparison with evapotranspiration obtained from energy balance based model.

Is the comprehension of idiomatic sentences indeed impaired in paranoid Schizophrenia? A window into semantic processing deficits  

PubMed Central

Schizophrenia patients have been reported to be more impaired in comprehending non-literal than literal language since early studies on proverbs. Preference for literal rather than figurative interpretations continues to be documented. The main aim of this study was to establish whether patients are indeed able to use combinatorial semantic processing to comprehend literal sentences and both combinatorial analysis, and retrieval of pre-stored meanings to comprehend idiomatic sentences. The study employed a sentence continuation task in which subjects were asked to decide whether a target word was a sensible continuation of a previous sentence fragment to investigate idiomatic and literal sentence comprehension in patients with paranoid schizophrenia. Patients and healthy controls were faster in accepting sensible continuations than in rejecting non-sensible ones in both literal and idiomatic sentences. Patients were as accurate as controls in comprehending literal and idiomatic sentences, but they were overall slower than controls in all conditions. Once the contribution of cognitive covariates was partialled out, the response times (RTs) to sensible idiomatic continuations of patients did not significantly differ from those of controls. This suggests that the state of residual schizophrenia did not contribute to slower processing of sensible idioms above and beyond the cognitive deficits that are typically associated with schizophrenia.

Warming Asymmetries due to Surface Turbulent Heat Flux Feedbacks in IPCC AR4 Climate Simulations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We use the newly developed Climate Feedback Response Analysis Model (CFRAM) to evaluate the coupled atmosphere-surface temperature changes due to the surface latent and sensible heat flux feedbacks in IPCC AR4 climate simulations. The CFRAM enables us to examine the warming patterns due to both feedbacks that directly affect the TOA radiative fluxes and feedbacks that do not, such as evaporation and surface sensible flux feedbacks. We estimate the surface flux feedback patterns from the difference between the 2×CO2 and control experiments. The temperature changes attributable to the surface sensible heat flux feedback are positive over the ocean with maximum values over the southern ocean and northern hemisphere gulf currents. Over land, the surface sensible heat flux feedback causes a reduction of surface warming over southern Africa, the northeastern part of South America and around the northern hemisphere mid-latitudes, corresponding to a negative feedback. The temperature response attributable to the evaporation feedback is a warming over land with the exception of the equatorial Africa and the mid to high latitudes of the northern hemisphere. Over oceans, the evaporation feedback is negative, causing a reduction of sea surface warming except over the equatorial Pacific Ocean where the evaporation feedback is positive. Overall, the effects of evaporation and surface sensible flux feedbacks tend to cancel one another. The net temperature change patterns in response to total surface flux feedbacks are positive in the mid-latitudes, Arctic region, and equatorial Pacific, but negative in sub-tropics and over Antarctica.

Estimative of energy budget in Brazilian Savanna  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The main goal of this work was to estimate the sensible (H) and latent (LE) heat flux using the eddy covariance method in a Cerrado "Campo Sujo" area, basically with herb-shrub physiognomy, sparse woody vegetation and approximately 2m height. The geographical position of the Cerrado, altitude, latitude, longitude, climate and weather conditions are determined by the dynamics of the atmosphere that affects the whole South America and consequently influence the ecological framework of ecosystems. The results shown by the components considered in the energy balance were more significant during the day, which the atmospheric boundary layer extends from the ground to about 50 or 100 meters height, showing greater instability and turbulence (u* > 0.2 m / s), and this turbulence is what justifies the use of the eddy covariance method to estimate the sensible and latent heat flux. The Cerrado presents seasonal difference between the densities estimates of sensible (H) and latent (LE) heat flux. During the rainy season the sensible heat flux (H) was 25% and the latent heat flux (LE) 54%. During the dry season the sensible heat flux (H) was 42% and the latent heat flux (LE) 30% of the energy budget.

Comparison of measured and modeled radiation, heat and water vapor fluxes: FIFE pilot study  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The feasibility of using radio frequency receivers to collect data from automated weather stations to model fluxes of latent heat, sensible heat, and radiation using routine weather data collected by automated weather stations was tested and the estimated fluxes were compared with fluxes measured over wheat. The model Cupid was used to model the fluxes. Two or more automated weather stations, interrogated by radio frequency and other means, were utilized to examine some of the climatic variability of the First ISLSCP (International Satellite Land-Surface Climatology Project) Field Experiment (FIFE) site, to measure and model reflected and emitted radiation streams from various locations at the site and to compare modeled latent and sensible heat fluxes with measured values. Some bidirectional reflected and emitted radiation data were collected from 23 locations throughout the FIFE site. Analysis of these data along with analysis of the measured sensible and latent heat fluxes is just beginning.

Hydride heat pump with heat regenerator  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A regenerative hydride heat pump process and system is provided which can regenerate a high percentage of the sensible heat of the system. A series of at least four canisters containing a lower temperature performing hydride and a series of at least four canisters containing a higher temperature performing hydride is provided. Each canister contains a heat conductive passageway through which a heat transfer fluid is circulated so that sensible heat is regenerated. The process and system are useful for air conditioning rooms, providing room heat in the winter or for hot water heating throughout the year, and, in general, for pumping heat from a lower temperature to a higher temperature.

Feature Extraction on Brain Computer Interfaces using Discrete Dyadic Wavelet Transform: Preliminary Results  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The purpose of this work is to evaluate different feature extraction alternatives to detect the event related evoked potential signal on brain computer interfaces, trying to minimize the time employed and the classification error, in terms of sensibility and specificity of the method, looking for alternatives to coherent averaging. In this context the results obtained performing the feature extraction using discrete dyadic wavelet transform using different mother wavelets are presented. For the classification a single layer perceptron was used. The results obtained with and without the wavelet decomposition were compared; showing an improvement on the classification rate, the specificity and the sensibility for the feature vectors obtained using some mother wavelets.

Extension of the Averaging Time in Eddy-Covariance Measurements and Its Effect on the Energy Balance Closure  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The modified ogive analysis and the block ensemble average were employed to investigate the impact of the averaging time extension on the energy balance closure over six land-use types. The modified ogive analysis, which requires a steady-state condition, can extend the averaging time up to a few hours and suggests that an averaging time of 30 min is still overall sufficient for eddy-covariance measurements over low vegetation. The block ensemble average, which does not require a steady-state condition, can extend the averaging time to several days. However, it can improve the energy balance closure for some sites during specific periods, when secondary circulations exist in the vicinity of the sensor. These near-surface secondary circulations mainly transport sensible heat, and when near-ground warm air is transported upward, the sensible heat flux observed by the block ensemble average will increase at longer averaging times. These findings suggest an alternative energy balance correction for a ground-based eddy-covariance measurement, in which the attribution of the residual depends on the ratio of sensible heat flux to the buoyancy flux. The fraction of the residual attributed to the sensible heat flux by this energy balance correction is larger than in the energy balance correction that preserves the Bowen ratio.

Emergency Communications over Satellite: the WISECOM Approach  

Microsoft Academic Search

This paper presents the overall architecture of the WISECOM system, which can quickly re-establish and provide telecommunication services after a disaster. The architecture is explained and it is described together with a role model, which adapts to the system. The work tries to map the existing complex interactions taking place nowadays in an emergency situation to a sensible architecture, which

Bites and stings in travellers  

Microsoft Academic Search

As a rule, bites and stings in travellers are merely a nuisance. But it is sensible to be informed about the more serious possibilities which can result. Systemic diseases can be transmitted, the skin lesions from insects can be troublesome and finally, some bites and stings can cause envenoming. Thus, the bather may be harmed by venomous fish stings, sea

Heat storage of pavement and its effect on the lower atmosphere  

Microsoft Academic Search

Heat flux at the air\\/ground interface was observed and analyzed for various pavement materials on summer days. The surface temperature, heat storage and its subsequent emission to the atmosphere were significantly greater for asphalt than for concrete or bare soil. At the maximum, asphalt pavement emitted an additional 150 W m?2 in infrared radiation and 200 W m?2 in sensible

The Past in the Present: Historicising Contemporary Debates about Gender and Education  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

History is often embedded, explicitly or implicitly, in discourses on contemporary aspects of gender and education, but relatively few scholars engage critically with history as they grapple with current issues. This article posits "historical sensibility" as a means of engaging constructively with the past when scrutinising and working…

Modeling Neuronal Response to Disparity Gradient  

Microsoft Academic Search

There is a rich literature of physiological studies that a subset of neurons in visual cortices is discriminative of 3-D surface orientation using only the disparity gradient information. One of the physiological models to account for this sensibility to surface slant is the dif-frequency disparity model. Although this model is physiologically plausible, no computational analysis is available to explain how
