[1] As part 1 in a series of papers describing long-term simulations using the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system and subsequent process analyses and sensitivity simulations, this paper presents a comprehensive model evaluation for the full year of 2001 over the continental U.S. using both ground-based and satellite measurements. CMAQ(More)
The Optical Physics Division of the Phillips Laboratory , with support from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program, i s developing a state-of-the-art line-by-line atmospheri c radiative transfer model as the successor to FASCODE. The goal of this project is to create a computationall y efficient model which(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal use of various therapeutic combinations for moderate/severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is unclear. The GLISTEN trial compared the efficacy of two long-acting anti-muscarinic antagonists (LAMA), when combined with an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) and a long-acting β2 agonist (LABA). METHODS This randomised, blinded,(More)
The Multiplex Fabry-Perot Interferometer (MFPI) is a unique instrument, incorporating the wide spectral-bandwidth capability of the Michelson interferometer with the small size and high resolution of the Fabry-Perot interferometer. The MFPI is, structurally, a standard Fabry-Perot in which the scanning distance is allowed to be very large, of the order of(More)
1. Abstract We describe a technique to determine the temperature of a Resident Space Object (RSO) from multiple infrared (IR) bands. The characteristic temperature of an object is the temperature of the Planck function that has the closest least squares fit to the observed irradiance in at least three infrared bands. The characteristic temperature and the(More)
The Multiplex Fabry-Perot interferometer (MFPI) consists of a Fabry-Perot interferometer in which the étalon plate separation is changed over a large optical distance. Fourier transformation of the resultant interferogram allows one to treat the multiple reflections within the étalon cavity in a manner analogous to an array of Michelson-type(More)
The Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) traditionally has been used to examine either small spectral ranges or relatively imple spectra. Recently, however, studies have shown that the FPI can be competitive with the Michelson interferometer ver extended spectral ranges. This paper describes a relatively new FPI technique in which one of the étalon plates is(More)
