The Neuroscience of Darkships

By: Tedd Roberts

Description: Tedd Roberts explains the scientific studies of degenerative diseases of the brain and what directly causes these diseases.

Excerpt: There are diseases currently known to twenty-first-century medical science that selectively attack synapses--Alzheimer's disease affects synapses and neuron cell bodies--but a more specific example is Myasthenia Gravis in which the body's own immune system attacks the synapse between muscle and the muscle control neurons (Motor Neurons). Many of these diseases are associated with age; it has been estimated that if humans lived long enough, we would all exhibit o...

Description: Eötvös Loránd University, Department of Meteorology, 1117, Pázmány P. s. 1/a, Budapest, Hungary. Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) single-column model simulations were performed in the late summer of 2012 in order to analyse the diurnal changes of the planetary boundary layer (PBL). Five PBL schemes were tested with the WRF. From the radiometer and wind-profiler measurements at one station, derived PBL heights were also compared to the simulations. T...

Description: Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE), Unidad La Paz, Miraflores No. 334, Fracc. Bella Vista, La Paz 23050 BCS México. The Gulf of Ulloa, a highly productive area off the western coast of the Baja California Peninsula, is examined for five successive years (2003–2007) by using satellite data and seasonal net primary productivity (NPP) estimates obtained from a vertical generalised production model. The results ide...

Technical Note: Watershed Strategy for Oceanic Mesoscale Eddy Spli...

By: L. Sun; Q. Y. Li

Description: Key Laboratory of Atmospheric Composition and Optical Radiation, CAS, School of Earth and Space Sciences, University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, 230026, China. To identify oceanic mononuclear mesoscale eddies, a threshold-free splitting method was developed based on the watershed. Because oceanic eddies are similar to plateaus and basins in the map of the sea level anomaly (SLA) data, the natural divisions of the basins are the watersh...

By: M. Collins; G. J. Van Oldenborgh; B. J. J. M. Van Den Hurk; S. Y. Philip

Description: Royal Netherlands Institute of Meteorology, De Bilt, The Netherlands. We examine the behaviour of the El Niño – Southern Oscillation (ENSO) in an ensemble of global climate model simulations with perturbations to parameters in the atmosphere and ocean components respectively. The influence of the uncertainty in these parametrisations on ENSO are investigated systematically. The ensemble exhibits a range of different ENSO behaviour in terms of the amplit...

Description: Center for Marine Science, University of North Carolina Wilmington, 5600 Marvin K. Moss Lane, Wilmington, NC 28409, USA. Hurricane Isabel made landfall near Drum Inlet, North Carolina on 18 September 2003. In nearby Onslow Bay an array of 5 moorings captured the response of the coastal ocean to the passage of the storm by measuring currents, surface waves, bottom pressure, temperature and salinity. Temperatures across the continental shelf decreased by 1...

Description: School of Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton, European Way, Southampton, Hampshire SO14 3ZH, UK. In a sensitivity experiment, an eddy-permitting ocean general circulation model is forced with realistic freshwater fluxes from the Greenland Ice Sheet, averaged for the period 1991–2000. The fluxes are obtained with a mass balance model for the ice sheet, forced with the ERA-40 reanalysis dataset. The freshwater flux is distributed around Gre...
