Humans are visiting Antarctica in increasing numbers, and the ecological effect of rapid soil habitat alteration due to human-induced physical disturbance is not well understood. An experimental soil disturbance trial was set up near Scott Base on Ross Island, to investigate the immediate and short-term changes to bacterial community structure, following(More)
The construction and use of a dual radiator Ring ImagingČerenkov (RICH) detector is described. This instrument was developed for the HERMES experiment at DESY which emphasises measurements of semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering. It provides particle identification for pions, kaons, and protons in the momentum range from 2 to 15 GeV, which is essential(More)
The inclusive A(e,eЈ) cross section for xӍ1 was measured on 2 H, C, Fe, and Au for momentum transfers Q 2 from 1 to 6.8 ͑GeV/c) 2. The scaling behavior of the data was examined in the region of transition from y scaling to x scaling. Throughout this transitional region, the data exhibit ␰ scaling, reminiscent of the Bloom-Gilman duality seen in free nucleon(More)
Separated longitudinal and transverse cross sections for charged pion electroproduction from 1 H, 2 H, and 3 He were measured at Q 2 ෇ 0.4 ͑GeV͞c͒ 2 for two values of the invariant mass, W ෇ 1.15 GeV and W ෇ 1.60 GeV, in a search for a mass dependence which would signal the effect of nuclear pions. This is the first such study that includes recoil momenta(More)
