The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) is a new instrument aboard ESA's 2nd European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS-2), which was launched in April 1995. The main scientiic objective of the GOME mission is to determine the global distribution of ozone and several other trace gases, which play an important role in the ozone chemistry of the Earth's(More)
Emissions from fossil fuel combustion and biomass burning reduce local air quality and affect global tropospheric chemistry. Nitrogen oxides are emitted by all combustion processes and play a key part in the photochemically induced catalytic production of ozone, which results in summer smog and has increased levels of tropospheric ozone globally. Release of(More)
For the real-time identification of the time-variant, directional structure of the mobile radio channel impulse response, a broadband vector channel sounder is described. The measurement procedure relies on periodic multi-frequency excitation signals, correlation processing and joint delay-azimuth superresolution based on the ESPRIT algorithm. The(More)
In this paper, we consider the manifold separation technique (MST), which stems from the wavefield modeling formalism developed for array processing. MST is a method for modeling the steering vector of antenna arrays of practical interest with arbitrary 2-D or 3-D geometry. It is the product of a sampling matrix (dependent on the antenna array only) and a(More)
[1] Soil NOx emission from agricultural regions in the western United States has been investigated using satellite observations of NO2 from the SCIAMACHY instrument. We show that the SCIAMACHY observations over a 2 million hectare agricultural region in Montana capture the short intense NOx pulses following fertilizer application and subsequent(More)
This paper describes a novel approach for detection, estimation and tracking of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radio propagation parameters from multidimensional channel sounding measurements. A realistic state-space model is developed for the purpose, and the extended Kalman filter (EKF) is applied in a particular computationally efficient form to(More)
Unlike other heavy metals that are inherently associated with atmospheric aerosols, mercury in ambient air exists predominantly in the gaseous elemental form. Because of its prolonged atmospheric residence time, elemental mercury vapor is distributed on a global scale. Recently, Canadian researchers have discovered that total gaseous mercury levels in the(More)
A study was conducted to test the effects of Jerusalem artichoke inulin (JA) or chicory inulin (CH) in snack bars on composition of faecal microbiota, concentration of faecal SCFA, bowel habit and gastrointestinal symptoms. Forty-five volunteers participated in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study. At the end of a 7 d run-in(More)
Tetrapyrroles are macrocyclic molecules with various structural variants and multiple functions in Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes. Present knowledge about the metabolism of tetrapyrroles reflects the complex evolution of the pathway in different kingdoms of organisms, the complexity of structural and enzymatic variations of enzymatic steps, as well as a wide(More)
