[1] Satellite radar interferometry data from 1995 to 2004, and airborne ice thickness data from 2002, reveal that the glaciers flowing into former Wordie Ice Shelf, West Antarctic Peninsula, discharge 6.8 ± 0.3 km 3 /yr of ice, which is 84 ± 30 percent larger than a snow accumulation of 3.7 ± 0.8 km 3 /yr over a 6,300 km 2 drainage basin. Airborne and(More)
Lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) deficiency syndromes represent a group of rare genetic disorders of HDL metabolism that have been the subject of a large number of clinical, biochemical, and genetic studies. Of special interest are patients with LCAT-related disorders with severe HDL deficiency and the apparent absence of premature(More)
Citizen sensing, or the use of low-cost and accessible digital technologies to monitor environments, has contributed to new types of environmental data and data practices. Through a discussion of participatory research into air pollution sensing with residents of northeastern Pennsylvania concerned about the effects of hydraulic fracturing, we examine how(More)
Discussing a research project that investigates citizen sensing practices in relation to monitoring air pollution from hydraulic fracturing sites, this paper investigates the types of data that citizen monitoring generates, and the uses to which it might be put. The discussion is located within the wider context of the rise of environmental sensing(More)
Drawing on our own art/science practices and a series of interviews with artificial life practitioners, we explore the entanglement of developments at the artistic edges of artificial life. We start by defining key terms from Karen Barad's agential realism. We then diffractively read artificial life together with agential realism to discuss the potential(More)
The water-suppressed proton NMR spectra of plasma from healthy controls and cancer patients have been recorded along with the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and triglyceride (TG) levels in the plasma. The dependence of the average of methylene and methyl resonance linewidths on the HDL/TG ratio is demonstrated. It is shown that the deranged lipoprotein(More)
