— The release of a harmful contaminant into a densely populated area could quickly affect significant numbers of people. The results of a physical modeling study of the atmospheric transport and dispersion of a hypothetical chlorine release are presented as a case study for situational awareness and preparedness planning. Both a Computational Fluid Dynamics(More)
Eighteen echocardiographic images useful for diagnostic imaging, M-mode echocardiography, and Doppler echocardiography of the equine heart were standardised by relating the position of the axial beam to various intracardiac landmarks. The transducer orientation required for each image was recorded in 14 adult horses by describing the degree of sector(More)
Romifidine, 100 micrograms/kg administered by intravenous injection, was evaluated as a premedicant to ketamine/halothane anaesthesia in 60 horses. Sedation developed within one to two minutes. In three cases mild staggering occurred within two minutes. Anaesthesia was induced after five minutes by the intravenous administration of ketamine (2 to 2.2(More)
Measurements of the radiation-induced optical attenuation at 1.3 microm and the induced absorption spectra (0.4-1.7 microm) of state-of-the-art pure synthetic silica and doped silica core optical fiber waveguides have been undertaken to characterize their radiation response at long wavelengths. It has been observed that radiation-induced absorption bands at(More)
