[1] A new method is introduced for the solution of problems of scattering by rough surfaces in the high-frequency regime. It is shown that high-order summations of expansions in inverse powers of the wave number can be used within an integral equation framework to produce highly accurate results for surfaces and wavelengths of interest in applications.

A convenient and efficient application of heterogeneous methylrhenium trioxide (MTO) systems for the selective oxidation of lignin model compounds and lignins is reported. Environmental friendly and low-cost H2O2 was used as the oxygen atom donor. Overall, the data presented and discussed in this paper point toward the conclusion that the immobilized(More)
The Ozone Mapping Profiler Suite (OMPS) was launched aboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) spacecraft on October 28, 2011. A successful thorough Early Orbit Checkout (EOC) enabled the current Intensive Calibration and Validation (ICV) stage. We present our analyses and results of OMPS Nadir early-orbit sensor performance and(More)
This paper evaluates the first 15months of the Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) Sensor Data Record (SDR) acquired by the nadir sensors and processed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Interface Data Processing Segment. The evaluation consists of an inter-comparison with a similar satellite instrument, an analysis using a radiative(More)
