The diurnal variations in surface winds, rain, and clouds over Taiwan are presented for three rainfall regimes: the mei-yu (16 May–15 June), summer (16 July–31 August), and autumn (16 September–15 Oc-tober). Though the magnitude of diurnal island divergence and convergence is similar under each regime, the diurnal variations of rain and clouds vary(More)
ABSTRAcT This study combined ideas from learning hierarchy and scaffolding theory to design a web-based, adap-tive learning system to investigate the effectiveness of scaffolding for elementary school students having different levels of learning achievement. The topic chosen for learning was the Three States of Water. A quasi-experiment was conducted. In(More)
Laser ablation ICPMS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry) analysis is a powerful tool for studies of fish ecology, based on measurement of the chemical composition of otoliths (ear stones). A key trade-off for this analysis is selecting the size of the ablation area to maximize the resolution for discrete temporal intervals during the life of an(More)
To understand if the trace elements in the otoliths can be used as a biological tracer for tracking natal origin and dispersal of larval black porgy (Acanthopagrus schlegeli) and yellowfin seabream (A. latus) among estuaries, the fish larvae in 1997, 1998, and 2005 and water samples in 2005 were collected from 3 estuaries on the western coast of Taiwan.
