MR microscopy is being explored as a useful imaging tool to phenotype mouse embryos due to its volume coverage with three-dimensional isotropic resolution. However, the main limitation for mouse embryo MR microscopy is the signal-to-noise ratio. Large numbers of embryos are needed for phenotypic screening, making high throughput essential. Two(More)
[1] Using densities measured by accelerometers on the CHAMP and GRACE satellites, and taking advantage of the local time precession characteristics of these near-polar orbiting satellites, exosphere temperatures are derived as a function of local time, longitude and latitude. Significant longitude variability (e.g., ±25K maximum to minimum over the equator)(More)
The na lidar-observed temperature diurnal tidal perturbations, based on full-diurnal-cycle observations from 2002 to 2008, are compared with tidal wave measurements by the TIMED/SABER instrument to elucidate the nature of diurnal tidal-period perturbations observed locally. The diurnal amplitude and phase profiles deduced by the two instruments are in very(More)
The conformational flexibility of the linkage mechanism or tether between paramagnetic metal centers is explored to assess optimal structural characteristics of multimeric MRI contrast agents. Two dimeric paramagnetic chelates differing in linkage flexibility but similar in symmetry are compared Relaxivity, water hydration number, and reorientational times(More)
