Principles of operation Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) inspection techniques are electromagnetic test methods primarily used to detect flaws or defects in high-permeability ferromagnetic metals such as carbon steel tubing, plate, wire rope and tubular parts.
Phototrophic green bacteria, phototrophic purple
bacteria, and heliobacteria are three groups of bacteria that use anoxygenic photosynthesis.
Anoxygenic phototrophs have photosynthetic pigments called bacteriochlorophylls.
Bacteriochlorophyll a and b have maxima wavelength absorption at 775 nm and 790 nm,
respectively in ether. Unlike oxygenic phototrophs, anoxygenic photosynthesis only
functions using a single photosystem. This restricts them to cyclic electron flow only, and
they are therefore unable to produce O2 from the oxidization of H2O.
Scale is a unifying concept that cuts across all natural and social sciences. At the
same time, scaling is a common challenge in both basic and applied research.
Accordingly, scale and scaling have become two of the most widely used buzzwords
in ecology today. Over the past two decades, more than a dozen books and many
more journal papers have been published on the problems of scale and scaling in
ecology and geophysical sciences. These publications, as reviewed in the chapters of
this book, have contributed significantly to our current understanding of scale issues.
Over the last ten years or so, interest in outdoor ambient
air pollution monitoring has tended to move away from
carbon monoxide and towards other pollutants such as NOx
and particulate matter. This is due to the limited direct health
impacts associated with exposure to modest amounts of
carbon monoxide. There has also been a gerneral decrease in
the ambient concentrations of carbon monoxide measured in
recent years as a result of improved vehicle technology.
Nevertheless, it also seems likely that substantial demand for voluntary GHG
emission reductions can exist even where there are regulatory requirements. “Carbon
neutrality” has become a goal for many companies seeking to attract customers by
providing environmentally friendly products and services. Likewise, growing awareness
about climate change has sparked an interest among many individuals to do their part to
help solve the problem.

Migration of carbon nanotubes from liquid phase to vapor phase in the refrigerant-based nanofluid pool boiling
Hao Peng1,2, Guoliang Ding1*, Haitao Hu1
Abstract The migration characteristics of carbon nanotubes from liquid phase to vapor phase in the refrigerant-based nanofluid pool boiling were investigated experimentally. Four types of carbon nanotubes with the outside diameters from 15 to 80 nm and the lengths from 1.5 to 10 μm were used in the experiments.
Competing geophysical/geochemical hypotheses for how Earth’s surface became oxygenated
– organic carbon burial, hydrogen escape to space, and changes in the redox state of volcanic
gases – are examined and a more biologically-based hypothesis is offered in response. It is
argued that compared to the modern oxygenated world, organic carbon burial is of minor
importance to the accumulation of oxygen in a mainly anoxic world where aerobic respiration
is not globally significant. Thus, for the Paleoproterozoic Great Oxidation Event (GOE) ~ 2.
