Increases in the concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) due to human activities are associated with global climate change. CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has increased by 33% (to 380 ppm) since 1750 ad, whilst CH4 concentration has increased by 75% (to 1,750 ppb), and as the global(More)
Fluctuating asymmetry (FA), the random differences between the left and right sides of a bilaterally symmetrical character, is often purported to be a sensitive measure of developmental instability particularly in populations exposed to environmental stressors. As the level of developmental instability increases, often too does the level of FA. In this(More)
Fluctuating asymmetry (FA), random variation between left and right sides in a bilaterally symmetrical character, is a commonly used measure of developmental instability that is expected to increase with increasing environmental stress. One potential stressor is 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), a powerful toxicant known to disturb tooth(More)
Experiments were conducted to determine the solubility of CO2 in a natural brine solution of the Oriskany formation under elevated temperature and pressure conditions. These data were collected at temperatures of 22 and 75 degrees C and pressures between 100 and 450 bar. Experimentally determined data were compared with CO2 solubility predictions using a(More)
We comment on a recent paper by Beaver, McAnally and Stinson (1997), drawing attention to the fact that their method ignores some recent developments in time-series econometrics. We apply a bi-variate vector autoregression framework to price and earnings data of listed US companies and the S&P 500 index to capture the dynamics of this system of equations.(More)
CO2 solubility data in the natural formation brine, synthetic formation brine, and synthetic NaCl+CaCl2 brine were collected at the pressures from 100 to 200 bar, temperatures from 323 to 423 K. Experimental results demonstrate that the CO2 solubility in the synthetic formation brines can be reliably represented by that in the synthetic NaCl+CaCl2 brines.(More)
Investing and consuming may not be so different as traditional economic theory has understood them. The consumer research literature has begun to view consumption not simply as rational decisionmaking, but as a more multisensory activity in which emotion and fantasy play important, if not essential, roles. This new perspective has been extended by Holt(More)
