The Climate Forecast System (CFS), the fully coupled ocean-land-atmosphere dynamical seasonal prediction system that became operational at NCEP in August 2004, is described and evaluated in this paper. The CFS provides important advances in operational seasonal prediction on a number of fronts. For the first time in the history of U.S. operational seasonal(More)
A prototype product suite, containing the Terra 8-day, Aqua 8-day, Terra–Aqua combined 8and 4-day products, was generated as part of testing for the next version (Collection 5) of the MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) leaf area index (LAI) products. These products were analyzed for consistency between Terra and Aqua retrievals over the(More)
Molecular devices are reported utilizing active self-assembled monolayers containing the nitroamine @28-amino-4,48-di~ethynylphenyl!-58-nitro-1-benzenethiolate# or the nitro compound @4,48-di~ethynylphenyl!-28-nitro-1-benzenethiolate# as the active components. Both of these compounds have active redox centers. Current–voltage measurements of the devices(More)
Super-Kamiokande is the world’s largest water Cherenkov detector, with net mass 50,000 tons. During the period April, 1996 to July, 2001, Super-Kamiokande I collected 1678 live-days of data, observing neutrinos from the Sun, Present address: University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15260, USA. Present address: California Institute of Technology, Pasadena,(More)
We present a fully integrated 14nm CMOS technology featuring finFET architecture on an SOI substrate for a diverse set of SoC applications including HP server microprocessors and LP ASICs. This SOI finFET architecture is integrated with a 4<sup>th</sup> generation deep trench embedded DRAM to provide an ultra-dense (0.0174um<sup>2</sup>) memory solution for(More)
This paper describes a novel method to construct solid rational T-splines for complex genus-zero geometry from boundary surface triangulations. We first build a parametric mapping between the triangulation and the boundary of the parametric domain, a unit cube. After that we adaptively subdivide the cube using an octree subdivision, project the boundary(More)
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Bagadiella victoriae and Bagadiella koalae on Eucalyptus spp., Catenulostroma eucalyptorum on Eucalyptus laevopinea, Cercospora eremochloae on Eremochloa bimaculata, Devriesia queenslandica on Scaevola taccada, Diaporthe musigena on Musa sp., Diaporthe(More)
A pre-flowering foliar spray of the plant activator acibenzolar-S-methyl at 50 mg/L a.i. combined with a fruit dip in guazatine at 500 mg/L a.i. at harvest substantially decreased disease in stored melons. Major diseases occurring on rock melons and Hami melons were caused by Fusarium spp., Alternaria spp., Rhizopus spp. and Trichothecium sp. The treatment(More)
The intestine is not only critical for the absorption of nutrients, but also interacts with a complex external milieu. Most foreign antigens enter the body through the digestive tract. Dietary amino acids are major fuels for the small intestinal mucosa, as well as important substrates for syntheses of intestinal proteins, nitric oxide, polyamines, and other(More)
