A 5,000 watt Xe-Hg source and a double monochromator were used to produce 6.6 nm. full band-pass ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Pigmented rabbit eyes were exposed to the 6.6 nm. band-pass UV radiant energy in 5 nm. steps from 295 to 320 nm. and at random intervals above 320 nm. Corneal and lenticular damage was assessed and classified with a biomicroscope.(More)
A t a workshop on the variability of the Asian– Australasian Monsoon in July 1998 in St. Michaels, Maryland, two major mechanisms were discussed at length, each thought to have the potential to produce monsoon variability. 1 The first mechanism, the role of external forcing (e.g., Charney and Shukla 1980), considered the influence on the monsoon of ENSO(More)
During the TOGA COARE Intensive Observing Period (IOP) from November 1992 through February 1993, temperature, salinity, and velocity profiles were repeatedly obtained within a 130 km ϫ 130 km region near the center of the Intensive Flux Array (IFA) in the western equatorial Pacific warm pool. Together with high quality measurements of air–sea heat flux,(More)
An ocean general circulation model (OGCM) is used to investigate the low-frequency (period longer than 90 days) rectification of atmospheric intraseasonal variability (10–90-day periods) in zonal surface current and transport of the equatorial Indian Ocean. A hierarchy of OGCM solutions is found in an actual tropical Indian Ocean basin for the period of(More)
The inferential standards for testing hypotheses are settled; those for constructing them rarely even discussed. If the fit to the data of a hypothesis matters, then so must its fundamental coherence. That is indeed prior to any other question. Here we make use of conceptual analysis in testing the coherence of hypotheses in cognitive neuroscience and apply(More)
During the TOGA COARE Intensive Observing Period, an energetic, surface-intensified, submesoscale cy-clonic eddy was observed in the near-equatorial western Pacific warm pool. The eddy appeared to have been generated as part of the spindown of a strong eastward surface jet forced by the December 1992 westerly wind burst. Because of its potential impacts on(More)
Cognitive neuroscience must attend to the conceptual coherence of its hypotheses as well as to their empirical support. Examining the most influential studies of the neural antecedents to voluntary action, our Discussion Paper sought to identify the real-world consequences of neglecting the former in what we argued has been too narrow a pursuit of the(More)
