3 The RAdiation transfer Model Intercomparison (RAMI) initiative benchmarks canopy 4 reflectance models under well-controlled experimental conditions. Launched for the first 5 time in 1999 this triennial community exercise encourages the systematic evaluation of 6 canopy reflectance models on a voluntary basis. The first phase of RAMI focused on doc-7(More)
Small molecule chemistry is of central importance to a number of R&D companies in diverse areas such as the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food flavoring, and cosmeceutical industries. In order to store and manage thousands of chemical compounds in such an environment, we have built a state-of-the-art master chemical database with unique structure(More)
Surface and upper-air analyses from the ECMWF TOGA dataset are used to construct a climatology of 177 Alberta Clippers over 15 boreal cold seasons (October-March) from 1986-87 to 2000-01. The Alberta Clipper (hereafter simply Clipper) occurs most frequently during December and January and substantially less frequently during October and March. These(More)
Glycerol (GC, propane-1,2,3-triol), propylene glycol (PG, pro-pane-1,2-diol), and triacetin (TA, propane-1,2,3-triyl triacetate) (Figure 1) are commonly used as solvents, food additives, and humectants in the food and tobacco industries. Their use often involves high-temperature conditions, in which thermal decomposition reactions occur, exposing the human(More)
Propylene glycol and triacetin are chemical compounds, commonly used as food additives. Though the usage of the pure chemicals is not considered harmful when used as dietary supplements, little is known about the nature of their thermal degradation products and the impact they may have on human health. For these reasons, in this manuscript we investigate(More)
