Two surveys were carried out in the Ross Sea region during February and March 2004 and 2008 from the New Zealand RV Tangaroa. Fishes were sampled on the continental shelf and slope of the Ross Sea, and on adjacent seamounts to the north, mainly using a large demersal fish trawl and a large mesopelagic fish trawl. Parts of the shelf and slope were stratified(More)
Context. Gaia Data Release 1 (DR1) contains astrometric results for more than 1 billion stars brighter than magnitude 20.7 based on observations collected by the Gaia satellite during the first 14 months of its operational phase. Aims. We give a brief overview of the astrometric content of the data release and of the model assumptions, data processing, and(More)
Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is a commonly performed procedure for the treatment of intermittent claudication despite the lack of controlled studies. The aim of this study was to compare PTA with supervised exercise therapy for patients with arterial occlusive disease judged suitable for PTA at angiography. Patients were assessed before(More)
The present paper describes two simple procedures which enhance immunohistochemical staining. One is to cover the sections with a plastic film to keep the serum uniformly distributed and minimize its evaporation. Secondly, rocking of the slides has been introduced, causing the serum to flow back and forth under the plastic film. Using this system, it has(More)
Using the RAdial Velocity Experiment fourth data release (RAVEDR4), and a newmetallicity calibration that will be also taken into account in the future RAVE DR5, we investigate the existence and the properties of supersolar metallicity stars ([M/H] +0.1 dex) in the sample, and in particular in the solar neighbourhood. We find that RAVE is rich in supersolar(More)
Patients with germ cell testicular tumours customarily have repeated follow-up chest radiographs after treatment. This study assesses the contribution of chest radiography to the detection of recurrent disease in 162 patients. Six patients developed an intrathoracic recurrence, but in only one case was the chest radiography the only indication of(More)
