The present study investigates the impact of fire (low and high severity) on soil fungal abundance and microbial efficiency in C assimilation and mineralisation in a Mediterranean maquis area of Southern Italy over 2 years after fire. In burned and control soils total and active fungal mycelium, microbial biomass C, percentage of microbial biomass C present(More)
Since recent research has shown that D-lactataemia is obviously not an unusual problem in calves, determination of this metabolite may have considerable clinical significance. In analogy to the routinely used L-lactate assay, a stereospecific enzymatic assay of D-lactate was automated on a Hitachi Automatic Analyzer 911. As the method described does not(More)
This communication presents the main results about the design and in-house fabrication of a new solid-state neutron detector, which produces a DC output signal proportional to the thermal neutron fluence rate. The detector has been developed within the framework of the 3-y project NESCOFI@BTF of INFN (CSN V). Due to its sensitivity, photon rejection, low(More)
In the framework of the NESCOFI@BTF project of the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics, different types of active thermal neutron sensors were studied by coupling semiconductor devices with a suitable radiator. The objective was to develop a detector of small dimensions with a proper sensitivity to use at different positions in a novel moderating assembly(More)
Operations management of the New Mexico Alliance for Computing at Extreme Scale (ACES) (a collaboration between Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories) Trinity platform will rely on data from a variety of sources including System Environment Data Collections (SEDC); node level information, such as high speed network (HSN)(More)
NESCOFI@BTF is a 3-y project (2011-13) supported by the Scientific Commission 5 of INFN (Italy). The target is the development of neutron spectrometers similar to the Bonner spheres, in terms of response energy interval and accuracy, but able to determine the neutron spectrum in only one exposure. These devices embed multiple (10 to 30) thermal neutron(More)
This paper deals with the survey and communications of Cultural Heritage through the development of innovative methodologies. The case of study is the polychrome wooden ceiling in the “Magna” Hall of “Palazzo Steri”. The “Steri”, built in the XIV century by the noble family Chiaromonte, is at the present the headquarter of the Rector’s Office of Palermo(More)
