[1] SCISAT-1, also known as the Atmospheric Chemistry Experiment (ACE), is a Canadian satellite mission for remote sensing of the Earth's atmosphere. It was launched into low Earth circular orbit (altitude 650 km, inclination 74°) on 12 Aug. 2003. The primary ACE instrument is a high spectral resolution (0.02 cm À1) Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS)(More)
We present an implemented algorithm f o r a distributed team of autonomous mobile robots to search for an object. When one robot finds it, they all gather around it, and then manipulate (" rescue ") it. The algorithm exploits parallelism, with all robots searching concurrently , and also teamwork, because the manipulation is performed cooperatively. Our(More)
Resting 32-channel topographical measures of EEG slow activity were compared in 12 elderly controls and 12 patients with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type. The patients had higher amplitude delta and theta than controls, especially in the left temporal regions. This greater amount of low frequency EEG activity in the left temporal area is consistent(More)
PURPOSE To compare muscle strength and muscle fatigue of the knee extensors and flexors in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) and non-MS control subjects and to evaluate the reliability of muscle strength and muscle fatigue testing in these individuals. METHODS Thirty individuals (13 women and 2 men for both MS and control groups), age (mean +/- SD)(More)
Behavioral and electrophysiological testing of olfactory function was performed in 33 normal human male and female subjects, 18-83 years of age. Acuity for odor identification and odor detection was verified by standard psychophysical tests. For evoked potential testing, a constant flow olfactometer provided odorant stimuli (amyl acetate) or air control(More)
This study investigated the relationship between isokinetic muscle strength and bone density (SPA and DPA) in men and women aged 45-77 yr. Regression models were adjusted for age, weight, smoking status, and calcium supplementation. Elbow extensors (but not flexors) peak torque was correlated with radial density in men (partial r = 0.26, P < 0.05) and women(More)
Quantitative scalp EEG from 32 channels and the cerebral glucose metabolic rate from the 32 underlying cortical positions as assessed by positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-2-deoxyglucose (FDG) were obtained on 36 patients with mild to moderate senile dementia of the Alzheimer type and 17 age- and sex-matched normal control subjects. Subjects(More)
The test-retest reliability of isokinetic muscle strength testing was determined in 45- to 78-year-old men (N = 71; mean age = 60.2 years) and women (N = 107; mean age = 60.0 years). The dynamic muscle strength of the knee and elbow extensor (KE, EE) and flexor (KF, EF) muscle groups was measured at slow (60 degrees/sec) and fast (K = 240 degrees/sec; E =(More)
We introduce the design and capabilities of a resistive heated diamond anvil cell that can be used for side diffraction at simultaneous high pressure and high temperature. The device can be used to study lattice-preferred orientations in polycrystalline samples up to temperatures of 1100 K and pressures of 36 GPa. Capabilities of the instrument are(More)
