    Economics is the science of allocating scarce resources among unlimited wants." That was Krista Gebert's response when I asked her to define economics for me. Having taught several economics classes at the University of Montana after graduate school, Krista had the definition down to its essence. As an economist with RMRS in Missoula, Krista applies economics...

  18. Flow Rate In Microfluidic Pumps As A Function Of Tension and Pump Motor Head Speed

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Irwin, Anthony; McBride, Krista

    2015-03-01

    As the use of microfluidic devices has become more common in recent years the need for standardization within the pump systems has grown. The pumps are ball bearing rotor microfluidic pumps and work off the idea of peristalsis. The rapid contraction and relaxation propagating down a tube or a microfluidic channel. The ball bearings compress the tube (occlusion) and move along part of the tube length forcing fluid to move inside of the tube in the same direction of the ball bearings. When the ball bearing rolls off the area occupied by the microfluidic channel, its walls and ceiling undergo restitution and a pocket of low pressure is briefly formed pulling more of the liquid into the pump system. Before looking to standardize the pump systems it must be known how the tension placed by the pumps bearing heads onto the PDMS inserts channels affect the pumps performance (mainly the flow rate produced). The relationship of the speed at which the bearings on the motor head spin and the flow rate must also be established. This research produced calibration curves for flow rate vs. tension and rpm. These calibration curves allow the devices to be set to optimal user settings by simply varying either the motor head tension or the motor head speed.

  19. Event Study of a Persistent Coronal Hole, its Solar Wind Signatures at L1, and Recurrent Relativistic Electron Enhancements at Geostationary Orbit

    persistent CH. This paper addresses the question: how do the properties of this particularly geoeffective CH and its solar wind manifestations at 1 AU vary from rotation to rotation and how is it distinguished from less geoeffective CHs (and ICMEs) during the same period? The Coronal Hole Automated Recognition and Monitoring (CHARM; Krista and Gallagher, 2009) algorithm is used to identify CHs and to quantify their physical properties (e.g., boundary, area, magnetic field strength and polarity). The Minor Storm (MiSt) algorithm is used to link the CHs to their in situ signatures (e.g., IMF, velocity, number density, temperature) observed by the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) satellite. The properties of the CHs and associated geoeffective solar wind properties are evaluated and compared, as well as the Dst geomagnetic index. With these results, we determine whether any of the characteristics of the CHs and their in situ solar wind signatures distinguish them in their relative geoeffectiveness.

    h continuous glucose monitoring. Two weeks of IWT, but not CWT, improves S G but not S I in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Moreover, changes in S G are associated with changes in glycaemic control. Therefore, increased S G is likely an important mechanism by which training improves glycaemic control in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

    . The positive atmosphere, the high attendance in the sessions and the lively discussions made the conference a great success and a memorable event. It was pointed out, that Mössbauer spectroscopy is still an interesting and powerful method with great opportunities in the future. Herbert Müller (Secretary) Michael Reissner (Chairman) This book is dedicated to our colleagues Nicol Malcom, who could not come, because he suddenly died a few weeks in advance to the conference and Hercilio Rechenberg, who died on his way home from Vienna.
