The results of a new multispectral infrared retrieval scheme for obtaining fractional cloud cover and 11-μm emissivity are compared with those of the spatial coherence method which obtains fractional cloud cover assuming that the clouds are opaque at infrared wavelengths. Both methods are applied to 4-km NOAA advanced very high...
From 25 April through 30 October 1992, I conducted 14 waterbird and raptor censuses at Cabell Marsh. I observed 33 waterbird taxa and seven raptor species, including hatch-year individuals of five waterbird species. The records for each census are given.

The purpose of this study was to compare Far Eastern
influences on Western women's dress as represented in both
a high fashion and mass fashion magazine between 1910 and
1925. Vogue was selected as the high fashion magazine and
Ladies Home Journal as the mass fashion magazine. The
The purpose of this study was to compare the levels of bone
mineral density (BMD) of the whole body (WB) and proximal
femurs of physically active men with spinal cord injuries (SCI) to
nonactive men with spinal cord injuries. Also, the lean muscle
mass (LMM) of active men with SCI...
The southern portion of the Kodiak-Bowie seamonnt chain in the southeastern
Gulf of Alaska presents a unique opportunity to investigate loading on young oceanic
lithosphere. Oceanic lithosphere younger than 25 Ma is loaded both by sediments in a deep
offshore trough and by seamount 100-200 km offshore. Free-air gravity anomaly...
For many years, the von Neumann bottleneck has imposed speed limits on the execution of a program. Because of their sequential nature, von Neumann computers can only execute a single instruction at a time. Instructions that are side-effect free and can be executed in parallel must wait. In an effort...
Sod-seeding techniques offer graziers a convenient way to introduce superior grass cultivars into underproductive permanent pastures. Production loss and erosion are minimized. In conjunction with improved grazing management and fertilization, renovation can significantly improve yield and quality of pastures. Existent vegetation must be suppressed prior to introducing new cultivars. This...
Zimbabwe's Communal Areas Management Program For Indigenous
Resources (CAMPFIRE), is a grassroots natural resource management
initiative that promotes utilization of natural resources as an
economic and sustainable land use option in Zimbabwe's rural areas.
Currently the program focuses on wildlife utilization as a
development intervention to improve the economic livelihood...
Summaries from 49 published articles on tree volume and taper equations are presented for 39 tree species found in California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, southeast Alaska, Idaho, and western Montana. The summaries are organized by species and then by type of equation (volume or taper). Each summary describes the types...
