The red flour beetle (Tribolium castaneum) is a major pest of stored grain and grain products and a popular model species for a variety of ecological, evolutionary, and developmental biology studies. Development of a linkage map based on reproducible and highly polymorphic molecular markers would greatly facilitate research in these disciplines. We have(More)
Solar–interplanetary space involvesmany features, such as discontinuities and heliospheric current sheet, with spatial scales many orders of magnitude smaller than the system size. The scalable, massively parallel, block-based, adaptive-mesh refinement (AMR) promises to resolve different temporal and spatial scales on which solar-wind plasma occurs(More)
The International Monitor for Auroral Geomagnetic Effects network magnetic measurements during the period 1995–2009 are used to characterize the annual variations in the westward electrojet. The results suggest that the annual variations in different local time sectors are quite different due to the different sources. In the MLT sector 2200–0100, the annual(More)
Total eastward and westward electrojet currents (EEJ and WEJ) and their central latitudes derived from the International Monitor for Auroral Geomagnetic Effects (IMAGE) network magnetic measurements are analyzed for the combined MLT (magnetic local time) and seasonal dependence during the period 1995–2009. EEJ shows a strong MLT variation with significant(More)
