A reduction in the rise time of a 2.85 GHz high power microwave (HPM) pulse is achieved by implementing an overvoltaged spark gap inside a waveguide structure. The spark gap is oriented such that when triggered, the major electric field component of the dominant TE(10) mode is shorted. The transition from a transmissive to a highly reflective microwave(More)
Eggs of blueback herring (Alosa aestivalis) and other fish taxa were sampled in Mulberry Ricefield, a former impoundment, and the west branch of Cooper River, South Carolina, U.S.A. from 1 March to 27 April 1988 and from 3 March to 27 April 1989. Four taxa of fish eggs (n=60,365) were collected in 1988 and eight taxa of eggs (n=10,541) in 1989. No(More)
Fibrolytic enzymes and microbial inoculants have the potential to improve the value of sorghum feedstuff and feedstock. An experiment was conducted to determine nutritive value, ensiling characteristics, and in situ disappearance kinetics of 4 sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) silage varieties: Dairy Master BMR (DBMR; brown midrib; Richardson Seed, Vega, TX), PS(More)
