This paper presents NMLab, a proposal of new co-simulation framework for Matlab and ns-2 targeted for networked control systems. NMLab enables to combine flexible and powerful numerical operations together with a realistic support for a wide range of up-to-date communication protocols, and permits simulating networking scenarios of high grade of complexity.… (More)
A joint experiment was carried out on 10 February 1999 by the Swiss Federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SFISAR) and the Austrian Institute for Avalanche and Torrent Research (AIATR, of the Federal Office and Research Centre for Forests, BFW) to measure forces and velocities at the full scale experimental site CRˆETA BESSE in VALLÉE DE LA… (More)
Knowledge on the spatial and temporal distribution of snow depth is one of the key parameter in the assessment of avalanche hazards, for snow drift and avalanche modelling and model verification. Reliable measurements of snow depth distribution are of interest for practitioners as well as for scientists. Most of the conventional methods like snow pits,… (More)

The essential tea tree oil has been widely used in modern medicine and cosmetics in recent years. Although there are clinical data to show the benefical effects (e.g. antiseptic, antimicrobial, antioxidative) of this oil, dose-response studies are lacking. This paper reviews the clinical use of this essential oil, especially as a topical application.
