All currently available climate models predict a near-surface warming trend under the influence of rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In addition to the direct effects on climate--for example, on the frequency of heatwaves--this increase in surface temperatures has important consequences for the hydrological cycle, particularly in regions(More)
Temperature and precipitation from 16 climate models each using two emissions scenarios (lower B1 and mid-high A2) were used to characterize the range of potential climate changes for the Rio Lempa basin of Central Amer-ica during the middle (2040–2069) and end (2070–2099) of the 21st century. A land surface model was applied to investigate the hydrologic(More)
The septins are a conserved family of proteins that are involved in cytokinesis and other aspects of cell-surface organization. In Drosophila melanogaster, null mutations in the pnut septin gene are recessive lethal, but homozygous pnut mutants complete embryogenesis and survive until the pupal stage. Because the completion of cellularization and other(More)
We study the angular distribution of relativistic electrons generated through laser-plasma interaction with pulse intensity varying from 10(18) W/cm2 up to 10(21) W/cm2 and plasma density ranging from 10 times up to 160 times critical density with the help of 2D and 3D particle-in-cell simulations. This study gives clear evidence that the divergence of the(More)
The nitrogen (N) dilution curve is a useful tool for farmers to assess the effectiveness of fertilizer application. The N dilution curve describes the decrease in plant N as biomass increases. This concept has not yet been tested for its applicability and robustness under different cutting regimes in grasslands. We conducted a principal components analysis(More)
Some physically relevant non-linear models with solitons, which have target space S 2 , are known to have submodels with infinitly many conservation laws defined by the eikonal equation. Here we calculate all the symmetries of these models and their submodels by the prolongation method. We find that for some models, like the Baby Skyrme model, the submodels(More)
The purpose of this study was the comparison of the calculated (MLSSC) and experimental power (MLSSE) in maximal lactate steady-state (MLSS) during cycling. 13 male subjects (24.2 ± 4.76 years, 72.9 ± 6.9 kg, 178.5 ± 5.9 cm, : 60.4 ± 8.6 ml min−1 kg−1, : 0.9 ± 0.19 mmol l-1 s-1) performed a ramp-test for determining the and a 15 s sprint-test for measuring(More)
The critical nitrogen concentration (CNC) is a simple yet robust relationship that describes the changes in crop N during growth. In Reyes et al. (Agron Sustain Dev 35:1561–1570, 2015), we applied the concept of CNC to calculate N uptake across various cutting regimes. While it is well-established that decreasing cutting frequency changes growth rates, the(More)
Erratum Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained errors. In equation 7, where ADP-concentration is calculated based on VO2ss and VO2max (Calculation of free ADP-concentration with respect to activated oxidative phosphorylation and maximal oxygen uptake): the term " Ks2 " is being changed to " Ks1 " (Ks2 is wrong within the(More)
