Simultaneous measurements of the effective density and chemical composition of individual ambient particles were made in Riverside, California by coupling a differential mobility analyzer (DMA) with an ultrafine aerosol time-of-flight mass spectrometer (UF-ATOFMS). In the summer, chemically diverse particle types (i.e., aged-OC, vanadium-OC-sulfate-nitrate,(More)
Dietary factors influencing loss of fecal nitrogen in Holstein steers have been examined in data on metabolism from forage diets. Two factors- total nitrogen and dry matter intake, accounted for a large part of the variation in fecal nitrogen. Nitrogen intak expressed as grams per kilogram dry matter intake more accurately accounted for variability in total(More)
Multileaf collimators (MLCs) need to be characterized accurately in treatment planning systems to facilitate accurate intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT). The aim of this study was to examine the use of MapCHECK 2 and ArcCHECK diode arrays for optimizing MLC parameters in Monaco X-ray voxel Monte Carlo(More)
