Interactions between surface winds and meanders in mid-latitude sea surface temperature
(SST) fronts with horizontal length scales of 100-1000 km are investigated
from satellite observations and numerical simulations. Observations from the Sea-
Winds scatterometer on the QuikSCAT satellite show that the magnitude, direction,
curl, and divergence of the surface wind...
Experiments were conducted to study the effect of pore size
distribution on the diffusion of 2, 4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (carbon-
14) through water saturated porous media. Eight size fractions of
glass beads were used representing the porous media. It was found
that as the average particle radius, and hence pore radius,...
The surface wind and stress responses to sea surface temperature (SST) are examined using collocated moored buoy and satellite observations in the Gulf Stream and the eastern equatorial Pacific. Using 17 buoy pairs, differences in the wind speed, 10-m equivalent neutral wind speed (ENW), and surface wind stress magnitude between...
Mice were used to compare the index and elite selection
methods for simultaneous selection of four traits. Selection was
for litter size, birth weight, weaning weight and post-weaning
gain. Progress was evaluated by examining total phenotypic merit.
The standard deviations from the cycle mean for the four traits
