The existing approaches to interface mechanics descnbe almost flat interfaces and use two elastic moduh corresponding to extension and bending deformations Recently these theones have been applied to systems with a strong curvature and hereby the finite thicknesses of interfaces come into play. We show that for such systems the elastic moduh considerably(More)
Long-term daily climatological data are important to study forest damage and simulate tree growth, but they are scarce in forested areas because observational records are often scarce. At the eight Bavarian forest sites, we examined six interpolation methods and established empirical transfer functions relating observed forest climate data to the climate(More)
Meteorological conditions have a decisive impact on surface ozone concentrations. In this study, an empirical model is used to explain the interdependence of ozone and grosswetterlagen. Different meteorological parameters such as air temperature, global solar radiation, relative humidity, wind direction and wind speed are used. Additional nitric oxide (NO)(More)
The most important characteristics of liposomes, in addition to chemical composition and surface properties, are size distribution and lamellarity. Liposomes can be formed by many different preparation techniques, which according to the literature yield rather well defined vesicle preparations. In contrast to abundant information on the experimental(More)
In this paper we apply our results concemmg a new view on a mechanical descnption of strongly curved amphiphllic interfaces to expenmental data available in the literature (Rand et al, 1990) Our theory predicts that, for cyhndncal interfaces, one has to take into account, three elastic moduh corresponding to area extension, bending and mtxed deformations We(More)
A novel amphiphilic fluorescent probe (Fluorazophore-L) with a strongly dipolar, nonionic azoalkane as headgroup and a palmitoyl tail has been synthesized and characterized. Pure Fluorazophore-L was found to be sufficiently amphiphilic to form stable air-water monolayers. An analysis of the surface pressure versus area suggests an area per molecule of about(More)
