[1] Mineral dust aerosols play an important role in the climate system. Coupled climate-aerosol models are an important tool with which to quantify dust fluxes and the associated climate impact. Over the last decade or more, numerous models have been developed, both global and regional, but to date, there have been few attempts to compare the performance of(More)
Aural rehabilitation is a critical and often neglected aspect of a hearing-impaired patient's total rehabilitation. This case description illustrates the need for implementation of aural rehabilitation services. A 59-year-old woman exhibited bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss following the onset of encephalitis herpes simplex. Auditory(More)
This study was aimed at establishing a baseline for the latency values of the biceps-brachii, triceps-brachii and brachioradialis tendon reflexes from the moment of elicitation by percussion of the tendon, to the appearance of the muscle action potential. The percussion hammer triggered the electronic sweep on the electromyograph oscilloscope, showing(More)
Origin: Cold downdrafts from moist convection. Typical meteorological conditions associated with dusty gust fronts: Wind speed: 5-15 m s-1 Visibility conditions: 0-1 km. Surface temperature drop: 0-20°C Surface pressure increase: ~ 9 hPa. Typical meteorological conditions associated with dusty gust fronts: Wind speed: 5-15 m s-1 Visibility conditions: 0-1(More)
