  • Cyclones are a key element of the atmospheric circulation in the midlatitudes (Carlson, 1998). Cyclogenesis, for which a first conceptual model was presented by the Bergen school (Bjerknes, 1910), occurs most frequently at the polar front. The various ascending and descending airstreams typically associated with these cyclones carry a range of different chemical signatures (Cooper et al., 2002). The so-called warm conveyor belt (WCB) – a strongly ascending airstream ahead of a cyclone’s cold front (Browning et al.

  • Disagreements involving environmental priorities and strategic approaches, and balancing the relative roles of compliance assistance with enforcement, contribute to the complexity and friction that come with enforcing national pollution control laws. Other contributing factors include the increasing number of statutory and related regulatory pollution control requirements (some with conflicting mandates) and the adequacy of the resources available for their implementation.

  • The annual summer warming of the Arctic in 2008 was watched closely by an army of expert observers and other interested parties around the world. Organisations such as the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)3 published neardaily updates on the state of the Arctic sea ice, which every year recedes from its winter maximum as the summer comes to the far north. The reason for this scrutiny was the record low level of Arctic sea ice extent observed in summer 2007, when an area of ice nearly the size of Alaska melted.

  • If you already have health problems that are likely to mean you will need long-term care (for example, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease), you probably won’t be able to buy a policy. Insurance companies have medical underwriting standards to keep the cost of long-term care insurance affordable. Without such standards, most people would not buy coverage until they needed long-term care services. Some states have a regulation requiring the insurance company and the agent to go through a worksheet with you to decide if long-term care insurance is right for you.

  • Forest ecosystems cover large parts of the terrestrial land surface and are major components of the terrestrial carbon (C) cycle. Most important, forest ecosystems accumulate organic compounds with long C residence times in vegetation, detritus and, in particular, the soil by the process of C sequestration. Trees, the major components of forests, absorb large amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) by photosynthesis, and forests return an almost equal amount to the atmosphere by auto- and heterotrophic respiration.

  • Following site characterization, working hypotheses about important mechanisms that control the behavior of injected CO2 are developed and tested. This approach has been studied extensively over the last decade from a risk assessment perspective (Savage et al., 2004; Lewicki et al., 2006). The mechanisms that have controlled past behavior, and will control future behavior, need to be understood through fluid flow simulation based on an understanding of the fluid and chemical processes active at the pore level and guided by available injection/production and monitoring data.

  • A comparative analysis of service statistics found that the utilization of services from health facilities doubled in Site A and increased ten-fold in Site B, compared to the change in utilization in Site C. Again, comparing the two intervention sites, Site B experienced six times greater utilization of services than Site A. Thus, for most key indicators, Strategy II produced greater improvements than did Strategy I. On the basis of study findings, the following recommendations are made.

  • Although processes for the production of LVOC are extremely diverse and complex, they are typically composed of a combination of simpler activities and equipment that are based on similar scientific and engineering principles. Chapter 2 describes how unit processes, unit operations, site infrastructure, energy control and management systems are combined and modified to create a production sequence for the desired LVOC product.

  • The word genre comes from the French meaning type or category. Its roots are in the Latin word genus, a word which is now used to describe classification in biology. Using the concept of genre in relation to the moving image serves much the same purpose.

  • The term „structured product‟ is the name given to an investment product that provides a return that is pre- determined with reference to the performance of one or more underlying markets. The performance of a structured product is therefore based only on the performance of this underlying product and not on the discretion of the product provider. Most often the product relies on the use of derivatives to generate the return, and contains downside protection or guarantees of some form via options.
