On the interpretation of zenith sky absorption measurements
Observations of several atmospheric species can be performed by measuring the absorption of visible and near-ultraviolet light scattered from the zenith sky. The determination of vertical column
Botanical and Geological Significance of Potassium-Argon Dates from the Juan Fern�ndez Islands
TLDR
Potassium-argon dating of five basalts from the Juan Fern�ndez Islands of Chile gives ages that are consistent with the origin of the island-seamount chain from a mantle hot spot beneath the eastward moving Nazca plate and suggests that speciation within endemic genera has occurred within the past 4 to 5 million years.
TAXONOMY OF LANTANA SECT. LANTANA (VERBENACEAE): I. CORRECT APPLICATION OF LANTANA CAMARA AND ASSOCIATED NAMES
TLDR
No available name applies to the cultigen, which is newly described as Lantana strigocamara R.W. Sanders, and a widely cultivated and naturalized cultigen species of hybrid origin that is taxonomically distinct from L. camara is hypothesized.
Absorption of solar radiation by water vapor, oxygen, and related collision pairs in the Earth's atmosphere
Absorption of solar radiation by collision pairs of oxygen is a small but significant part of the total budget of incoming shortwave radiation. It is shown that the 1.26-μm band of O4 and O2·N2 is
Visible spectroscopy at McMurdo Station, Antarctica: 2. Observations of OClO
The column abundance of OClO at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, was measured by visible absorption spectroscopy during austral spring in 1986. Observations were obtained during the day using scattered
Subfamilial Classification of Labiatae
TLDR
Erdtman's subfamilies appear to be the primary phenetic groupings of the Labiatae, but only subfam.
Solar Mesosphere Explorer Near-Infrared Spectrometer: Measurements of 1.27-μm radiances and the inference of mesospheric ozone
Ozone in the mesosphere is determined from observations made by the near-infrared spectrometer experiment on the Solar Mesosphere Explorer satellite (SME) between 50 and 90 km over most latitudes at
Measurements of arctic sunrise surface ozone depletion events at Kangerlussuaq, Greenland (67°N, 51°W)
In situ measurements of surface ozone were conducted from 30 January through 22 May 1995, at the Sondrestrom Incoherent Scatter Radar Facility near Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. Several periods of
Mesospheric ozone depletion during the solar proton event of July 13, 1982, Part I Measurement
The near infrared spectrometer and the ultraviolet spectrometer on the Solar Mesosphere Explorer (SME) observed the ozone density as a function of latitude and altitude during the solar proton event
