The Great Basin harbors at least sixty Tertiary calderas and inferred sources of tuff and several tens of thousands of cubic kilometers of ash-flow deposits, making it one of the greatest manifestations of prolonged ash-flow volcanism in the terrestrial rock record. Some individual calderas are exposed east to west across three or four mountain ranges.(More)
Motivated by the recent interest in ocean energetics, the widespread use of horizontal eddy viscosity in models, and the promise of high horizontal resolution data from the planned wide-swath satellite altimeter, this paper explores the impacts of horizontal eddy viscosity and horizontal grid resolution on geostrophic turbulence, with a particular focus on(More)

Quadratic bottom boundary layer drag is a potentially significant source of energy dissipation in the deep ocean. This study presents a new estimate of the energy dissipated by this process, using results from the world's largest archive of ocean current meter time series and focusing strongly upon the potential uncertainties in this calculation.

Pre-and probiotics (synbiotics) are suggested to have beneficial effects on human health. This study describes effects of an amino acid based formula (AAF) with syn-biotics in infants with cow's milk allergy (CMA). In a prospective, randomized, double-blind controlled study, full term infants with diagnosed IgE and/or non-IgE mediated CMA received a(More)
