A novel four nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-tube holder is described for quantitative Raman and resonance Raman spectroscopy. This cell has advantages over other divided cell designs in producing high precision quantitation and eliminating off-axis errors. Raman spectra were obtained for both...
Steel plate shear walls have typically been analyzed using quasi static and monotonic pushover analysis; however, dynamic excitations during an earthquake elicit different behaviour from the structure due to the nature of the loading. This report outlines the design and analysis of a steel plate...
Comparison of the open‐closed separatrix in a global magnetospheric simulation with observations: The role of the ring currentDownload
Kabin, Konstantin, Lu, J. Y., Rankin, Robert, Gombosi, Tamas I., Watt, Clare E. J., Ridley, Aaron J., Toth, Gabor, Milan, Steve E., Zhang, Jichun, Rae, I. Johnathan, Clauer, C. Robert, De Zeeuw, Darren L., Fenrich, Frances
The development of global magnetospheric models, such as Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF), which can accurately reproduce and track space weather processes has high practical utility. We present an interval on 5 June 1998, where the location of the polar cap boundary, or open-closed field...
The nonlinear dynamics of a shear flow and its subsequent evolution in the equatorial plane of the inner plasma sheet is studied. A linear analysis of the ideal MHD equations reveals a hybrid vortex instability which appears because of the coupling of Kelvin-Helmholtz (KH) and Rayleigh-Taylor...
Effect of age of the intermediate host Tribolium confusum (Coleoptera) on infection by Hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda).Download
A cross-sectional study of 27 cohorts of Tribolium confusum aged 2–78 wk was done to examine effects of host age on exposure to eggs of Hymenolepis diminuta under standardized conditions. Pre-exposure, fasting, and postexposure mortality were low, sex ratio was equal, and fecundity of hosts was...
Electrically induced instability of thin liquid films is a contactless pattern transfer method, often called electrohydrodynamic (EHD) lithography, which has gained extensive attention due to its ability in creation of novel micro- and nano-sized structures. The need for powerful microprocessors...
Estimation of spatiotemporal transmission dynamics and analysis of management scenarios for sea lice of farmed and wild salmonDownload
Parasite transmission between farmed and wild salmon affects the sustainability of salmon aquaculture in Pacific Canada. Understanding and managing parasites in aquaculture is challenged by spatial and temporal variation in transmission dynamics. We developed a mechanistic model that connects sea...
Fecal Pellet Counts as a Technique for Monitoring an Alpine-Dwelling Social Rodent, the Hoary Marmot (Marmota caligata)Download
We evaluated fecal pellet counts as an index of hoary marmot (Marmota caligata) social group size in order to develop a simple, inexpensive method for monitoring population change of a widely distributed, but poorly studied alpine mammal. Fecal pellet counts were conducted in three separate...
Incorporating the effects of complex dynamic interactions in the construction decision making processDownload
Construction projects involve complex interactions among operational components such as labour, materials and equipment and context or organizational components such as worker morale and organizational policies. Interactions among different components of construction projects form byzantine...
Initial Excited-state Structural Dynamics of Deuterated and Methylated Uracil Derivatives by Resonance Raman SpectroscopyDownload
Nucleic acids are biological macromolecules constructed of purine (guanine and adenine) and pyrimidine (cytosine, thymine and uracil) nucleobases. The interaction of ultraviolet (UV) light with pyrimidine nucleobases leads to various photoproducts, such as cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs),...
