The SLAC Linac can deliver to End Station A (ESA) a high-energy test beam with similar beam parameters as for the International Linear Collider (ILC) for bunch charge, bunch length and bunch energy spread.[1] ESA beam tests run parasitically with PEP-II with single damped bunches at 10Hz, beam energy of 28.5 GeV and bunch charge of (1.5-2.0)·10 10(More)
A new control scheme is presented which provides simultaneous control of the output voltage and the energy storage capacitor voltage in the full-bridge Boost Integrated with Buck RectifiedEnergy storage/Dc-dc converter (full-bridge BIBRED). The new control scheme solves the problem of wide voltage excursions for the energy storage capacitor voltage under(More)
An area of saline sodic soil was intensively drained and treatments of gypsum (31 t/ha) or sulphur (6 t/ha) were applied, while control plots received no ameliorants. Physical and chemical soil analyses showed gypsum to have an ameliorative effect slightly superior to that of sulphur. Both treatments were more beneficial than the control but differences(More)
Since 1989 a federally supported long-term coral reef monitoring program has focused on two study sites atop East and West Flower Garden Banks in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico. We examined 25 yr of benthic cover data to provide a multi-decadal baseline and trend analysis of the community structure for this coral reef system. Despite global coral reef(More)
We report a 44-year-old Western Australian man who suffered a cardiac arrest several hours after a bite by a brown snake. He was successfully resuscitated after bolus administration of undiluted brown snake antivenom. We suggest that an initial bolus dose of at least five ampoules (5000 units) of undiluted brown snake antivenom should be given as primary(More)
Results of determinations for particle size distribution , bulk density, porosity and moisture retention over the available moisture range are tabulated for 2 1 different soil series. Moisture characteristic curves are plotted for seven soil series which broadly represent the various soil conditions that occur. Moisture release characteristics of these(More)
