BABAR, the detector for the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric eþe B Factory operating at the Uð4SÞ resonance, was designed to allow comprehensive studies of CP-violation in B-meson decays. Charged particle tracks are measured in a multi-layer silicon vertex tracker surrounded by a cylindrical wire drift chamber. Electromagnetic showers from electrons and photons are(More)
Bivalve and microzooplankton community grazing on natural plankton assemblages were studied in 2 embayments of the Peconic Bay estuary (West Neck Bay, Long Island, New York) to determine the relative importance of each community on plankton mortality. Each embayment was characterized by a fringing salt marsh. The bivalve populations consisted of a(More)
