Modelling floodplain flows using a two-dimensional finite element model
A prototype two-dimensional finite element flow model for depth-averaged free surface flows was developed for floodplain environments. Limited refinement of the model's physical representation wasExpand

Does an altered leptin axis play a role in obesity among children and adolescents with classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency?
OBJECTIVE Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) patients are at a higher risk to develop obesity. The role of leptin in CAH is still controversial. Our study aimed to evaluate serum levels of leptin,Expand

Adiponectin levels are high in children with classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to 21‐hydroxylase deficiency
Objective: It has been shown that adiponectin serves as an insulin‐sensitizing adipokine. Serum concentrations of adiponectin are low in children with obesity, and increase with fat mass loss,Expand

Catch-down growth during infancy of children born small (SGA) or appropriate (AGA) for gestational age with short-statured parents.
OBJECTIVE We analyzed postnatal growth in children with familial short stature (FSS) with regard to small (SGA) or appropriate (AGA) for gestational age status at birth. STUDY DESIGN We studied 96Expand

Two novel mutations in the human thyroid peroxidase (TPO) gene: genetics and clinical findings in four children
We report four children originating from two unrelated German families with congenital hypothyroidism (CH) due to mutations in the thyroid peroxidase (TPO) gene. Three female siblings (family 1) wereExpand

Spontaneous growth hormone secretion and IGF1:IGFBP3 molar ratios in children born small for gestational age (SGA).
OBJECTIVE To analyze spontaneous nocturnal GH profiles, IGF1 and IGFBP3 serum levels, as well as IGF1:IGFBP3 molar ratios in SGA children without postnatal catch-up growth. METHODS Short staturedExpand

The deposition and storage of suspended sediment in contemporary floodplain systems : a case study of the River Culm, Devon
This thesis documents the rates and patterns of contemporary and recent overbank deposition along the lower reaches of the River Calm, S. E. Devon, England. Two temporal perspectives are adopted: (i)Expand

Lateral variability of overbank sedimentation on a Devon flood plain
Deployment of sediment traps over a 12-month period has enabled investigation of the lateral variability of overbank deposition rates and particle size composition of deposited sediment across aExpand

The potential application of finite element modelling of flood plain inundation to predict patterns of overbank deposition
Abstract Mathematical modelling of overbank inundation and flows faces many problems and is still in its infancy. Work to date has generally been restricted to small reaches. Large-scale models basedExpand
