The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued its Third Assessment Report in July 2001. When President Bush announced the U.S. would not ratify the Kyoto Protocol, he also asked the U.S. National Academy of Science (NAS) to assess the IPCC's climate science analysis and conclusions – the domain of the IPCC's Working Group I. The NAS supported(More)
The middle-latitude standing wave problem is investigated by means of a quasi-geostrophic, linear, steadJ;-state model in which the zonal current is perturbed by the lower boundary topography and by a distribution of heat sources and sinks. All the perturbations are assumed to have a single meridional wavelength and the dissipation is considered to take(More)
A system-type model of the acoustic reflex in man is proposed with the intention of sheding light on certain of its nonlinear behaviors. This model is the first to incorporate into the multipath structure of the reflex arc the adaptation and recovery processes. Parameter distribution in the parallel pathways is based on the current knowledge on the(More)
