Altering the level of phytic acid phosphorus by nutritional means had no effect on the ability of soybean (Glycine max L. [Merr.], cv ;Williams 79') seeds to germinate under laboratory or greenhouse conditions. Dry matter moved out of the cotyledons at similar rates whether the germinating seeds initially contained low (0.19), medium (0.59), or high (1.00(More)
Laboratory measurements have been made of the spectral reflectance of size-fractionated suspended sediments from two estuarine systems. The results show that reflectance at wavelengths between 400 and 1000 nm increases with decreasing particle size for given sediment masses. Preliminary interpretation suggests that a new factor, target area, which is(More)
A Grumman EA-6B aircraft experienced a rapid pressurization failure at 27,000 feet. All four crew members had removed their oxygen masks and were breathing cabin air pressurized to 8,000 feet before the incident. Although none of the crew members developed signs or symptoms of decompression sickness, the potential for adversity was realized by all. Altitude(More)
Twenty-four patients were studied after the application of plasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC) film as a temporary burns dressing. The burns were assessed as being partial thickness (nine patients) and full thickness (15 patients) in depth and involving 2 per cent to 35 per cent of the body surface area. Microbiological cultures were performed on the(More)
INTRODUCTION Observation-based occupational safety programs have long recognized the critical interaction of environment and behaviour in the workplace [1]. While the veracity of these programs is questioned [2], their foundation in behavioural psychology connects to various theory-based paradigms for changing manual materials handling (and musculoskeletal(More)
