The quantification of diurnal and seasonal gas (NH 3 , H 2 S, and CO 2) and PM 10 concentrations and emission rates (GPCER) from livestock production facilities is indispensable for the development of science‐based setback determination methods and evaluation of improved downwind community air quality resulting from the implementation of gas pollution(More)
This study was an add-on study to the National Air Emission Monitoring Study (NAEMS). The objective of this study was to measure odor emissions and corresponding concentrations and emissions of target odorous gases. Odor and odorous gas measurements at four NAEMS sites (dairy barns in Wisconsin-WI5B and Indiana-IN5B, swine finisher barn in Indiana-IN3B and(More)
Link protein (LP), an extracellular matrix protein in cartilage, stabilizes aggregates of hyaluronic acid (HA) and proteoglycans, including aggrecan and inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitor (ITI). We have shown previously that cartilage LP is present in the maturing rat and mouse ovary. In the present study, we have employed immunohistochemistry to examine the(More)
The Global Influenza Hospital Surveillance Network (GIHSN) has established a prospective, active surveillance, hospital-based epidemiological study to collect epidemiological and virological data for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres over several consecutive seasons. It focuses exclusively on severe cases of influenza requiring hospitalization. A(More)
Ecohydrology has advanced rapidly in the past few decades. A search of the topic " ecohydrology " in the Web of Science showed an exponential growth of both publications and citations. The number of publications and citations increased from 7 and 6, respectively in 2000 to 65 and 1262 by 26 November 2012 (Fig. 1). Even with slightly different focus and(More)
Temperature dependent spectral response and detectivity of GeSn photoconductors on silicon for short wave infrared detection, " Opt. Temperature dependent spectral detectivity to 2.4 μm and peak responsivity of 1.63 A/W for a Ge0. Competition of optical transitions between direct and indirect bandgaps in Ge1-xSnx, " Appl. Room-temperature(More)
Drought and salinity are severe environmental stresses and limit soybean growth. In this study, a comparative analysis of physiological and molecular responses of two soybean (Glycine max L.) genotypes to these stresses was carried out. Plants of drought-tolerant genotype RD (cv. FD92) and sensitive genotype SD (cv. Z1303) were exposed to 15 % (m/v) PEG(More)
Streptococcus pneumonia (the pneumococcus) is the leading vaccine preventable cause of serious infections in infants under 5 years of age. The major correlate of protection for pneumococcal infections is serotype-specific IgG antibody. More recently, antibody-independent mechanisms of protection have also been identified. Preclinical studies have found that(More)
