Bluelink is Australia’s contribution to the Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment (GODAE). The goals of GODAE include the development and application of eddy-resolving, data assimilating ocean forecast systems. In this paper, we describe several aspects of the Bluelink effort that are motivated by this goal. One of the main innovations of Bluelink is(More)
PURPOSE To determine normative diffusion values of the median nerve at several anatomic locations in healthy men and women of variable age and to compare these normative values with those in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS After ethics board approval and written informed consent were obtained, 45 healthy volunteers (30 women,(More)
Bluelink is a partnership between the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), the Bureau of Meteorology (the Bureau) and Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The primary objective of Bluelink is to develop and improve Australia’s capabilities in short-range ocean forecasting and reanalysis. The Bluelink forecast system (Brassington et(More)
Background: A variety of procedures with substantial differences in results are employed to treat recurrent inguinal hernia. The advantages of totally extraperitoneal patch repair (TEP) are even more evident when it is applied to recurrent compared to primary hernias. To investigate the superiority of this method more closely, we reviewed our results(More)
The Bureau of Meteorology is scheduled in 2007 to expand its oceanographic services for the Australian community to include operational mesoscale ocean forecasts. The past decade has seen the rapid development of a near real-time global ocean observing system which includes both insitu and satellite instrumentation. The spatial coverage and frequency of(More)
The authors report the long-term course of two siblings with L-dopa responsive dystonia (DRD) associated with a compound heterozygous mutation in the tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) gene. Both siblings manifested with lower-limb onset generalized DRD and had a sustained response to low-dose L-dopa therapy for over 35 years. Although the l-dopa therapy was delayed(More)
[1] We perform a series of Observing System Experiments (OSEs), where components of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) are systematically withheld from a data assimilating ocean reanalysis. We assess the relative importance of Argo temperature (T) and salinity (S) profiles, sea-surface temperature (SST) and altimetric sea-level anomalies (SLA) for(More)
A series of observing system simulation experiments (OSSEs) are performed for the tropical Indian Ocean ( 15° from the equator) using a simple analysis system. The analysis system projects an array of observations onto the dominant empirical orthogonal functions (EOFs) derived from an intermediateresolution (2° 0.5°) ocean circulation model. This system(More)
The Bluelink Ocean data assimilation system (BODAS) is an ensemble-based system that underpins Australia’s operational short-range ocean forecast system. The primary test-bed for the Bluelink system is the series of Bluelink ReANalysis (BRAN) experiments. Over the life of Bluelink, BRAN experiments have been used to assess the performance of the system, and(More)
PURPOSE To present a patient whose cold-triggered neck pain and jaw claudication remitted after revascularization of severe atherosclerotic stenoses of both external carotid arteries (ECA). CASE REPORT A 60-year-old vintner presented with jaw claudication and neck pain that increased in severity while he worked in cold temperatures. Angiography showed(More)
