We adapted a commercially available flow‐injection autoanalyzer (Lachat Quik‐Chem 8000) to measure seawater nitrate concentrations at a rate of nearly 0.1 Hz and phosphate and silicate concentrations at a rate half that. Several minor improvements, including reduced sample‐loop size, high sample flushing rate, modified carrier chemistry, and use of peak...
Statistics and Metrics Generator (SMG), is a software tool that gathers, stores and reports
performance and execution metrics for a web-based software installation process. The
purpose of this project was to develop a software utility that provides feedback about software
download and installation process efficiency. A web-based software installation is...
Grower cooperatives and quasi-cooperative producer associations
have a long tradition of using group action to establish or
improve quality standards and to promote product uniformity
for their crops and livestock. These efforts have often been key
to creating new domestic and international markets. Such
endeavors often include working closely with...
End-user programmers are writing an unprecedented number of programs, primarily using languages and
environments that incorporate a number of interactive and visual programming techniques. To help these
users debug these programs, we have developed an entirely visual, interactive approach to fault localization.
This paper presents the approach. We also present...
By mapping the three-dimensional density field while simultaneously tracking a subsurface, isopycnal float, direct observations of upwelling along a shelfbreak front were made on the southern flank of Georges Bank. The thermohaline and bio-optical fields were mapped using a towed undulating vehicle, and horizontal velocity was measured with a shipboard...
Americans have enjoyed cakes for hundreds of years. Back in colonial
days, the old “recipes” called for measurements like “a lump of
butter the size of a walnut” or “a dessert spoon full of sugar.” Ingredients were beaten for hours and housewives guessed at the oven
temperatures in their wood...
