We examine the seasonal cycle of near-surface air temperature simulated by 17 coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP). Nine of the models use ad hoc``¯ux adjustment'' at the ocean surface to bring model simulations close to observations of the present-day climate. We group(More)
2-D waveguide power transmission (2DWPT) can potentially provide a safe and wireless means of electricity transfer. Our goal is to develop a 2DWPT system in which the power is transferred only to special receiver devices and not to other objects. For this purpose, a new high-quality (high-<i>Q</i>) factor receiver coupler is designed, while the <i>Q</i> of(More)
89 Chapter 1 Earth Science Our research group aims to develop a physics-based predictive simulation system for crustal activities in and around Japan. In the first three years of the project we completed a prototype of the simulation system, which consists of a quasi-static stress accumulation model, a dynamic rupture propagation model and seismic/geodetic(More)
91 Chapter 1 Earth Science Our research group aims to develop a physics-based predictive simulation system for crustal activities in and around Japan, which consists of a combined simulation model for quasi-static stress accumulation and dynamic rupture propagation and the associated data assimilation software. In the first phase (2003–2005), we constructed(More)
In this paper we demonstrate a high-efficiency dc power extraction using a rectifying coupler in a two-dimensional waveguide power transmission (2DWPT) system. In our recent research, 2DWPT system has been improved in efficiency and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), by covering the waveguide surface with a thick insulator layer and using a(More)
