— This paper describes the sliding spotlight algorithm and the processing strategy to be applied for TerraSAR-X. The steering spotlight geometry is analysed. Analysis of scene size and resolution demonstrates the particularities of this mode. The Doppler frequencies for individual targets and for a whole sliding spotlight scene are analyzed and the result(More)

Concerns about climate change and food productivity have spurred interest in biochar, a form of charred organic material typically used in agriculture to improve soil productivity and as a means of carbon sequestration. An innovative approach in agriculture is the use of agro-forestry waste for the production of soil fertilisers for agricultural purposes(More)
One of the most well-known, highly utilized reagents for ether cleavage is boron tribromide (BBr 3), and this reagent is frequently employed in a 1:1 stoichiometric ratio with ethers. Density functional theory calculations predict a new mechan-istic pathway involving charged intermediates for ether cleavage in aryl methyl ethers. Moreover, these(More)
Willow, a leading bioenergy feedstock, may be planted for bioremediation and has been used, more recently, as the biomass feedstock in the manufacture of biochar for agricultural applications. Here, we present a detailed study of the physical and chemical factors affecting willow char properties, where the feedstock is a by-product of bioremediation,(More)
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (<b>UNFCC</b>) adopted the Kyoto protocol, establishing legally binding targets for the developed world countries that ratified the protocol. It aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an overall 5% below 1990 levels during the period between 2008 and 2012. Our review of current literature and(More)

Last year one of us (M.R.A.) wrote a Commentary in Nature, asking if it would ever be possible to sue anyone for damaging the climate 1. At the time, this was largely a thought experiment, as the scientific and legal arguments were too immature to provide a satisfactory answer. But in this week's issue, some scientific justification for revisiting that(More)
