The Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) has been operating since March 2002 onboard of the ENVIronmental SATellite of the European Space Agency (ESA). The high resolution (0.035 cm −1) limb-emission measurements acquired by MIPAS in the first two years of operation have very good geographical 5 and temporal coverage and have(More)
BACKGROUND Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 α (HIF-1 α ) and NF- κ B play important roles in the inflammatory response after hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation (H/R). Here, the role of myeloid HIF-1 α in liver hypoxia, injury, and inflammation after H/R with special regard to NF- κ B activation was studied. METHODS Mice with a conditional HIF-1 α knockout (KO)(More)
This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in ACP if available. Abstract The winter 2009/2010 was characterized by a strong Arctic vortex with extremely cold midwinter temperatures in the lower stratosphere associated with an intense activation of(More)
The Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) onboard the ENVISAT satellite provides profiles of temperature and various trace-gases from limb-viewing mid-infrared emission measurements. The stratospheric nitric acid (HNO 3) from September 2002 to March 2004 was retrieved from the MIPAS observations us-5 ing the science-oriented data(More)
Embedded in the Envisat validation programme of the chemistry instruments GOMOS, MIPAS, and SCIAMACHY a balloon flight was carried out with MIPAS-B, the balloon borne version of MIPAS, on September 24, 2002 from Aire sur l'Adour, France, adjusted to the nighttime overpass of orbit 2975. This paper outlines the instrumental characteristics of MIPAS-B, the(More)
Although space delineation is a well-accepted requirement for biologically controlled biomineralization, the actual location of the mineralizing compartment within marine invertebrates has only recently been determined. We observed that the biomineralization was compartmented within the collar region of the metamorphosing larvae of Hydrodies elegans at its(More)
This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in ACP if available. Abstract The Arctic winter 2010/11 was characterized by a persisting vortex with extremely cold temperatures in the lower stratosphere above northern Scandinavia leading to a strong(More)
The Improved Limb Atmospheric Spectrometer (ILAS)-II sensor aboard the Japanese ADEOS-II satellite was launched into its sun-synchronous orbit on 14 Decem-ber 2002 and performed solar occultation measurements of trace species, aerosols, temperature, and pressure in the polar stratosphere until 25 October 2003. Vertical trace gas profiles obtained with the(More)
