This paper describes the preliminary development of a network-index approach to modify and to extend the classic TOPMODEL. Application of the basic Beven and Kirkby form of TOPMODEL to high-resolution (2·0 m) laser altimetric data (based upon the UK Environment Agency’s light detection and ranging (LIDAR) system) to a 13·8 km catchment in an upland(More)
Locating optimal sites on raster suitability maps is a complex problem when the size of the sites is larger than the cell size. There are a number of techniques for generating suitability maps, but these maps are not solutions to the site location problem. Feasible solutions are clusters of contiguous cells which meet spatial criteria concerning the size(More)
OBJECTIVE Anti-endothelial cell antibodies (AECA) have been reported to induce apoptosis. We investigated the induction of apoptosis by these autoantibodies and their involvement in the removal of apoptotic cells. METHODS AECA isolated from patients with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) were incubated with human umbilical vein endothelial cells(More)
Lee M. Sharrar, former Rice instructor, was the principal speaker for the evening. Sharrar seems to be a prime favorite with the engineers since that talk that he gave nt the last engineering banquet and initiation. The basis of his talk was a choice ! stock of his best jokes, and a 10-act, play, entitled "I Am An Engineer", j According to Sharrar, when an(More)
A method is described for the measurement of the anterior and posterior radii of curvature and thickness or a soft (hydrogel) contact lens. The method is based on the observation of an interference pattern that is generated by two beams of light, one reflected from the surface of the lens and the other reflected from the surface of a comparison mirror. It(More)
