Antifreeze glycopeptide and peptides from the blood of polar fishes prevent the growth of ice crystals in water at temperatures down to approximately 1 degree C below freezing point, but do not appreciably influence the equilibrium freezing point. This freezing point hysteresis must be a disequilibrium effect, or it would violate Gibbs' phase rule, but the(More)
1. ABSTRACT Atmospheric rotors are horizontally aligned vortices that develop in atmospheric flows downstream of terrain obstacles, such as those offered by mountain ranges. Rotor structure and evolution are strongly tied to the nature of the flow within the boundary layer and of concurrent mountain-induced internal gravity waves aloft. Mountain waves and(More)
