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)
The very short-period oscillations inevit,ably undergone by any meteorological quantity predicted by a system of primit’ive equations are principally noise, if an atmospheric model is designed so as to forecast a large-scale and slowly moving meteorological wave. The noise appears as highfrequency gravitational waves. In this paper the words “gravitational(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)
A tropical cyclone has been simulated in a qu , druply nested mesh model with finest grid resolution of about S km. At the center of the vol1ex, a compact eye was maintained. Azimuthal means as well as asymmetry of the ye and the eye wall !,tructure are described. The asymmetric features within the eye wall moved cyclonically at a much smaller rotation rate(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 compared the satisfaction levels of patients with type 2 diabetes undergoing combination therapy with lixisenatide (LIX) and basal insulin with that of patients undergoing multiple daily insulin injection (MDI) therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was a 12-week open-label, randomized, multicenter, controlled trial. Participants(More)
We compared treatment satisfaction between daily dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and a weekly DPP-4 inhibitor in patients with type 2 diabetes. The study was a 12-week, open-label, randomized, multicenter, controlled trial. Participants were Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes who had received daily DPP-4 inhibitors for more than 3 months.(More)
