On the Velocity Gradient in Stably Stratified Sheared Flows. Part 2: Observations and Models
Observations of the dependence of the dimensionless wind speed gradient φm as a function of the Monin–Obukhov stability parameter z/Lo under strong stability diverge from results of large-eddy simulation (LES) modelling. ...
Effects of diapycnal and isopycnal mixing on the ventilation of CFCs in the North Atlantic in an isopycnic coordinate OGCM
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2003)
Simulated distributions of the chlorofluorocarbons CFC-11 and CFC-12 are used to examine the ventilation of the North Atlantic Ocean in a global version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM). Three simulations ...
Coastal ocean fronts and eddies imaged with ERS 1 synthetic aperture radar
(American Geophysical Union, 1996-03-15)
ERS 1 C band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data were collected during the Norwegian Continental Shelf Experiment (NORCSEX) both in November 1991 during the ERS 1 commissioning phase and at different seasons in 1992 and ...
Correction to “Sea ice velocity in the Fram Strait monitored by moored instruments”
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-12-11)
Cleavage modification did not alter blastomere fates during bryozoan evolution
(BioMed Central, 2017-04-28)
Background: Stereotypic cleavage patterns play a crucial role in cell fate determination by precisely positioning early embryonic blastomeres. Although misplaced cell divisions can alter blastomere fates and cause embryonic ...
Increased taxon sampling reveals thousands of hidden orthologs in flatworms
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2017)
Gains and losses shape the gene complement of animal lineages and are a fundamental aspect of genomic evolution. Acquiring a comprehensive view of the evolution of gene repertoires is limited by the intrinsic limitations ...
Working with Research Integrity—Guidance for Research Performing Organisations: The Bonn PRINTEGER Statement
This document presents the Bonn PRINTEGER Consensus Statement: Working with Research Integrity—Guidance for research performing organisations. The aim of the statement is to complement existing instruments by focusing ...
Erythrocyte DHA and AA in infancy is not associated with general development five years later in Nepalese children
Background Long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (AA) are crucial for normal brain development in utero and in early infancy. Data on fatty acid status ...
Pairwise comparisons across species are problematic when analyzing functional genomic data
(National Academy of Sciences, 2018-01-04)
There is considerable interest in comparing functional genomic data across species. One goal of such work is to provide an integrated understanding of genome and phenotype evolution. Most comparative functional genomic ...
Temporal biomass dynamics of an Arctic plankton bloom in response to increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide
(European Geosciences Union, 2013-01-11)
Ocean acidification and carbonation, driven by anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), have been shown to affect a variety of marine organisms and are likely to change ecosystem functioning. High latitudes, ...
