The physical mechanisms and physiological causes of glare in human vision are reviewed. These mechanisms are scattering in the cornea, lens, and retina, and diffraction in the coherent cell structures on the outer radial areas of the lens. This scattering and diffraction are responsible for the " bloom " and " flare lines " seen around very bright objects.(More)
Bacteria capable of aerobic respiration on ferrous ions are spread throughout eubacterial and archaebacterial phyla. Comparative spectroscopic analyses revealed that phylogenetically distinct organisms expressed copious quantities of spectrally distinct redox-active biomolecules during autotrophic growth on soluble iron. Thiobacillus ferroxidans,(More)
The use of bio-derived materials both as fuels and/or as blending stocks becomes more attractive as the price of middle distillate fuels, especially home heating oil, continues to rise. Historically, many biomass and agricultural derived materials have been suggested. One of the most difficult problems encountered with home heating oil is that of storage(More)

Thermophilic microbial inhabitants of active seafloor and continental hot springs populate the deepest branches of the universal phyloge-netic tree, making hydrothermal ecosystems the most ancient continuously inhabited ecosystems on Earth. Geochemical consequences of hot water-rock interactions render these environments habitable and supply a diverse array(More)
