The relationship between tornadic and nontornadic convective wind fatalities and warnings
(American Meteorological Society, 2011)
A database of tornado fatalities, nontornadic convective wind fatalities, severe thunderstorm warnings, and tornado warnings was compiled for the period 1986–2007 to assess the spatial and temporal distribution of warned ...
Climatological Radar Delineation of Urban Convection for Atlanta, Georgia
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2010)
The distribution of warm season (June through August) thunderstorm activity surrounding Atlanta, Georgia from 1997 to 2006 was determined utilizing composite reflectivity data obtained from the network of National Weather ...
Impact of an Irreversibly Adsorbed Layer on Local Viscosity of Nanoconfined Polymer Melts
(American Physical Society, 2011)
We report the origin of the effect of nanoscale confinement on the local viscosity of entangled polystyrene (PS) films at temperatures far above the glass transition temperature. By using marker x-ray photon correlation ...
Phylogenetically Widespread Multiple Paternity in New World Natricine Snakes
(Herpetological Conservation and Biology, 2010)
We used microsatellite DNA markers to identify the extent to which multiple paternity within litters occurs among species of New World natricine snakes. We selected seven species to represent the three major clades ...
Debate on Southeast Asia – An Idea Whose Time Is Past?
(Brill Academic Publishers, 2012)
Evolution and Function of the Plant Cell Wall Synthesis-Related Glycosyltransferase Family 8
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 2010)
Carbohydrate-active enzyme glycosyltransferase family 8 (GT8) includes the plant galacturonosyltransferase1-related gene family of proven and putative a-galacturonosyltransferase (GAUT) and GAUT-like (GATL) genes. We ...
Civil Non-State Actors in Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding in West Africa
(Brill Online Books and Journals, 2013)
This paper advances the notion of civil non-state actors in peacekeeping and peacebuilding. Using Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Côte d’Ivoire as cases studies, the paper identifies three kinds of civil non-state actors in ...
Prognosis for Ecosystem Recovery Following Rodent Eradication and Seabird Restoration in an Island Archipelago
(Ecological Society of America, 2010-07)
Invasive species are widespread and can have devastating effects on biota, especially insular biota. Invasive species eradications are increasingly employed to promote island recovery to preinvasion states. However, it ...
Measurement of the Top-Quark Mass in pp- Collisions Using Events with Two Leptons
(American Physical Society, 2012-09)
We present a measurement of the top-quark mass (mt) in pp- collisions at √s=1.96TeV using tt- events with two leptons (ee, e μ, or μμ) and accompanying jets in 4.3 fb-1 of data collected with the D0 detector at the ...
Search for Neutral Higgs bosons in Events with Multiple Bottom Quarks at the Tevatron
(American Physical Society, 2012)
The combination of searches performed by the CDF and D0 collaborations at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider for neutral Higgs bosons produced in association with b quarks is reported. The data, corresponding to 2 : 6fb 1 of ...
