The surface flow wetland in Cairns, Australia consists of 3 linear channels each 65 m long. Channels 1 and 2 are 5 m wide and Channel 3 is 15 m wide. The wetland was constructed in 1994 and band planted with emergent macrophyte species and alternating open water sections. The wetland was monitored for plant growth and nutrient removal until 1997.

Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) is essential for survival of proprioceptive and mechanoreceptor neurons, but its role in motoneuron development in vivo has seemed slight. Recent evidence however has suggested that NT-3 may be involved in motoneuron maturation. Here, we quantitatively assess the number and state of development of motoneurons within the lumbar lateral(More)
Membrane-spanning gramicidin channels remain unique because of their small size, well-characterized function and well-defined structure. In organic solvents, the gramicidins are conformationally poly-morphic; but a large body of work (summarized in refs 1,2) shows conclusively that the predominant channel form is a head-to-head dimer of two single-stranded(More)
During April-May 2010 the UK Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) BAe-146 aircraft flew 12 flights targeting volcanic ash clouds around the UK. Ash clouds were observed on every flight at altitudes between 2 – 8km. Due to safety considerations the aircraft only penetrated ash clouds forecast to have concentrations less than 2000µg/m 3.(More)
The Fennec climate programme aims to improve understanding of the Saharan climate system through a synergy of observations and modelling. We present a description of the Fennec airborne observations during 2011 and 2012 over the remote Sahara (Mauritania and Mali) and the advances in the understanding of mineral dust and boundary layer processes they have(More)
This paper describes the first demonstration of vibration isolation and suspension systems, which have been developed with view to application in the proposed Australian International Gravitational Observatory. In order to achieve optimal performance at low frequencies new components and techniques have been combined to create a compact advanced vibration(More)
