[1] In this paper we describe the methodology of an offline retrieval of CO 2 from AIRS data and show comparisons of these retrievals with all available NOAA ESRL/GMD aircraft data during 2005. In general, we find that when compared to the aircraft the AIRS CO 2 estimates agree to approximately ±0.5% in middle-tropospheric CO 2 column abundances between ±65(More)
The stem of the bamboo plant consists of a hollow, tubular culm with periodic nodes, characterised by an internal diaphragm and an external ridge. Bamboo is a highly anisotropic material having a strong fibre orientation, but in the vicinity of the nodes, the fibres diverge from their longitudinal orientations. Previous researchers have claimed that the(More)
