A small Plinian eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia ejected 3.5 x 10(10) kilograms of mixed dacite and andesite tephra on 13 November 1985, with a maximum column height of 31 kilometers above sea level. Small pyroclastic flows and surges, generated during the initial stage of the eruption, caused surface melting of approximately 10% of the(More)
Three highly purified preparations (preparations I, II-1, and II-2) have been obtained from wheat germ and shown to support in vitro polypeptide synthesis directed by capped or uncapped mRNAs in a eukaryotic initiation factor 4B (eIF-4B)-deficient system. The three preparations differ, however, in polypeptide composition and in the ability to overcome the(More)
Smoking is a well-known source of food contaminated caused by carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Epidemiological studies indicates a statistical correlation between the increased occurrence of cancer of the intestinal tract and the frequent intake of smoked foods. As observed during the last 10 years in a certain district of Hungary with a(More)
Giant axons from squids (Loligo vulgaris and Loligo pealii) were studied by conventional electron microscopy and by electron spectroscopic imaging: electrons with a characteristic energy loss due to interaction with phosphorus atoms were used to image phosphorus-rich elements such as ribosomes. Patches of granular material were seen in the proximal region(More)
A method is described for the fluorescence-spectrophotometric densitometric determination of nitrosamines. For this purpose, foods of animal origin are vacuum-distilled, the distilled-over nitrosamines are extracted with methylene chloride from an acid medium and, after cleavage by hydrogen bromide, the corresponding amines are reacted with(More)
Fossil medusoids identified as Cyclomedusa davidi?, Beltanelliformis brunsae, and cf. Sekwia excentrica are reported from Late Precambrian strata in the Wernecke Mountains. They are representatives of the Ediacaran fauna, the oldest assemblage of cosmopolitan metazoans, and are only the third such occurrence in Canada. In addition, specimens broadly(More)
It has been observed that delta wings placed in a transonic freestream can experience a sudden movement of the vortex breakdown location as the angle of incidence is increased. The chapter reports on the use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to examine this behaviour in detail. The study shows that a shock-vortex interaction is responsible. The balance of(More)
