The purpose of this study was to examine the problem solving processes of
Thai gifted students when they solved non-routine mathematical problems. The
research questions guiding the study were: (1) What is the nature of the problem
solving processes that Thai gifted students use as they engage in solving non-routine...
Fine and coarse particles were collected for eight weeks during the
summer of 1991, at a coastal site (Yaquina Head) and a non-industrial site
(Corvallis) in Western Oregon to characterize the aerosol composition and
evaluate whether the sites are appropriate for sampling "background" marine
air. Concentrations of up to 11...
American meteorology was synonymous with subjective weather forecasting in the early twentieth century. Controlled by the Weather Bureau and with no academic programs of its own, the few hundred extant meteorologists had no standing in the scientific community. Until the American Meteorological Society was founded in 1919, meteorologists had no...
A two-dimensional numerical mesoscale model, which ic1udes
radiative and turbulent transfers, has been constructed to study the
formation, development and dissipation of coastal stratus cloud
under an inversion. In the model, the delta-Eddington and emissivity
approximations are used for the solar and thermal radiative
transfers, respectively. K-theory parameterization is adopted...
The dynamical role of mesoscale eddies in the ocean general
circulation is investigated using eddy-resolving quasigeostrophic
(QG) and primitive equation (FE) models which are parametrically
identical. The results of both QG and FE numerical
experiments in mid-latitude, rectangular ocean basins are
systematically intercompared and extensively analyzed in terms
The major purpose of this study was to test the relationship between
students' cerebral lateralization for the Arabic language and
their achievement in science. A secondary purpose was to investigate
handedness as a factor in that relationship. The experiment was conducted
in the City of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, using dichotic...
The Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX) had as a primary objective
determining the radiative forcing due to anthropogenic aerosols over
climatologically significant space and time scales: the Indian Ocean during the
winter monsoon, January-March. During the winter monsoon, polluted, low-level
air from the Asian subcontinent blows over the Arabian Sea and...
A radiation model was developed for retrieving cloud visible optical depth,
droplet effective radius, and cloud top emission temperature using AVHRR satellite
observations at 0.63, 3.7, and 11 μm. The model was used to determine the sensitivity
of the retrieved properties to various approximations often employed in such retrievals.
