Okmok Volcano, in the eastern Aleutian Islands, erupted in February and March of 1997 producing a 6-km-long lava flow and low-level ash plumes. This caldera is one of the most active in the Aleutian Arc, and is now the focus of international multidisciplinary studies. A synthesis of remotely sensed data (AirSAR, derived DEMs, Landsat MSS and ETM+ data,(More)
We studied 681 patients in a randomised, multicentre, double-blind, parallel group trial designed to assess the incidence of headache following spinal anaesthesia for Caesarean section using four different pencil point spinal needles. The needles used were: Whitacre 25G (n = 170), Polymedic 25G (n = 170), Sprotte 24G (n = 173) and Polymedic 24G (n = 168).(More)
This report documents the results of a numerical analysis carried out to understand the cooling of lava flows in an external open environment using the computational fluid dynamics code/program ANSYS ® FLUENT™ Version 12 (ANSYS, Inc., 2009). The Navier-Stokes equations are solved in two dimensions. A rectangular, tabular geometry for the lava body is(More)
UNLABELLED We describe the engineering of a novel single-chain fragment (scFv) metallothionein (MET) containing anti-carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) antibody (referred to as MET-scFv) for use as a diagnostic imaging agent in colorectal cancer. METHODS Site-directed cloning of annealed oligonucleotides, containing both the MET and a c-myc tag sequence, into(More)
