37. The along-track scanning radiometer (ATSR) data are supplied by the European Space Agency and have been analyzed by the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory , UK. 38. We thank I. Ward for assistance with coral sample preparation and mass spectrometry; Hurricanes can inflict catastrophic property damage and loss of human life. Thus, it is important to(More)
The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) Hurricane Prediction System was adopted by the U.S. National Weather Service as an operational hurricane prediction model in the 1995 hurricane season. The framework of the prediction model is described with emphasis on its unique features. The model uses a multiply nested movable mesh system to depict the(More)
A new spherical grid system whose grid density on the globe is almost homogeneous is proposed. The elementary rules of finite differencing on the grid system are defined so that a desirable condition for numerical area integration is satisfied. The integrations of primitive equations for a barotropic atmosphere with free surface are made. T h e patterns of(More)
Based on the box method, finite-difference versions of a system of primitive equations in spherical coordinates k e formulated 'for a spherical grid. Non-linear computational instability cannot occur in time integrations of these equations. Conservation of total mass is guaranteed by the finite-difference form of the continuity equation. The proposed scheme(More)
OBJECTIVES GLP-1 improves hyperglycemia, and it has been reported to have favorable effects on atherosclerosis. However, it has not been fully elucidated whether GLP-1 is able to improve endothelial function in patients with type 2 diabetes. Therefore, we investigated the efficacy of the GLP-1 analogue, liraglutide on endothelial function and glycemic(More)
OBJECTIVES The DPP-4 inhibitors are incretin-related drugs that improve hyperglycemia in a glucose-dependent manner and have been reported to exert favorable effects on atherosclerosis. However, it has not been fully elucidated whether DPP-4 inhibitors are able to improve endothelial function in patients with type 2 diabetes. Therefore, we investigated the(More)
AIMS/INTRODUCTION We carried out an observational cohort study to examine the relationship between the efficacy of oral antidiabetic drugs and clinical features in type 2 diabetics. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed the CoDiC(®) database of the Japan Diabetes Data Management Study Group across 67 institutions in Japan. In a total of 3,698 drug-naïve(More)
OBJECTIVE The fact that population with type 2 diabetes mellitus and bodyweight of patients are increasing but diabetes care is improving makes it important to explore the up-to-date rates of achieving treatment targets and prevalence of complications. We investigated the prevalence of microvascular/macrovascular complications and rates of achieving(More)
