This study reports on the humidity corrections in the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) upper-air sounding dataset and their impact on diagnosed properties of convection and climate over the warm pool. During COARE, sounding data were collected from 29 sites with Vaisala-manufactured systems and 13(More)

The Lagrangian ocean model is used as a tool to simulate the response of the basin-scale overturning circulation to spatially variable diapycnal mixing in an idealized ocean basin. The model explicitly calculates the positions, velocities, and tracer properties of water parcels. Owing to its Lagrangian formulation, numerical diffusion is completely(More)
Adiabatic theories of ocean circulation and density structure have a long tradition, from the concept of the ventilated thermocline to the notion that deep ocean ventilation is controlled by westerly winds over the Southern Ocean. This study explores these ideas using a recently developed Lagrangian ocean model (LOM), which simulates ocean motions by(More)
An account is given of the histopathological mechanisms of wound healing, before additional factors of influence on cicatrisation are described. Also described is the spectrum of scar patterns, from hairline to keloid. Considerations on proper timing of scar revision and on the age of the patient best suitable for surgical correction have led to the(More)
Ptosiform blepharochalasis is not only an esthetic but also a functional problem for the elderly patient. In clinical terms there is an extension of the lid skin over upper-lid margin, a relaxation of the orbicularis muscle and a large amount of periorbital fat. The operation involves resection of the excess skin by an elliptical excision, shortening of the(More)
