This paper presents a multilayered ecosystem modelling approach that combines the simulation of the biogeochemistry of a coastal ecosystem with the simulation of its main forcing functions such as catchment loading and aquaculture activities. This modelling approach was developed as a tool for the sustainable management of coastal ecosystems. A key feature(More)
The authors present a method to determine the rheological characteristics of debris flow directly. According to the authors’ experiments on the material debris flow that occurred on Moscardo Torrent (Friuli Region, Italy), the debris flow behavior can be represented by a Herschel-Bulkley model with n = 1/3. In the authors’ experiments, the coarse fraction(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS In the past decade of clinical studies, the combination of chemotherapy with cytokine induced killer (CIK) cell transfusion has confirmed a promised efficacy in several types of cancer. CIK cells are a mixture of T lymphocytes, generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells induced by multiple cytokines. This study was aimed to(More)

The paper presents a new Medium Access Control protocol for a broadband optical Local Area Network based on multichannel Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) techniques. The proposed protocol is based on the Ethernet standard, using a Carrier Sense Multiple Access / Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) scheme and is extended to the case of a multichannel(More)
BMJ Open publishes all reviews undertaken for accepted manuscripts. Reviewers are asked to complete a checklist review form (http://bmjopen.bmj.com/site/about/resources/checklist.pdf) and are provided with free text boxes to elaborate on their assessment. These free text comments are reproduced below. Some articles will have been accepted based in part or(More)
We report on the Chandra X-ray Observatory and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of two low coredensity globular clusters, NGC6144 and E3. By comparing the number of X-ray sources inside the half-mass radius to those outside, we found six X-ray sources within the half-mass radius of NGC6144, of which four are expected to be background sources; three(More)

24 electronic LAN, OCI and the bidirectional shuuenet. One important advantage of the last solution (over the previous two) is that it allows the independent choice of the most cost eeective deadlock free routing scheme for each level of the SSN architecture. 8 Conclusions Deadlocks in wormhole routing networks occur when a state is reached such that no(More)
