The specific problems associated with concrete and concreting in hot
environments have been recognised for some decades. This recognition has
manifested itself over the years at a few symposia and in hundreds of papers
where relevant research results and field observations were presented and
discussed. In other publications the practical conclusions from these available
data and experiences have been summarised in the form of guidelines for hot
Research over the past decade has demonstrated the feasibility of extracting topographic information
of hydrological interest directly from digital elevation models (DEM). Techniques are
available for extracting slope properties, catchment areas, drainage divides, channel networks and
other data (Jenson and Domingue, 1988; Mark, 1988; Moore et al., 1991; Martz and Garbrecht,
1992). These techniques are faster and provide more precise and reproducible measurements than
traditional manual techniques applied to topographic maps (Tribe, 1991)....
This text provides the student and professional mechanical engineer with a reference text of an essentially practical nature. It is uncluttered by text, and extensive use of illustrations and tables provide quick and clear access to information. It also includes examples of detailed calculations on many of the applications of technology used by mechanical and production engineers, draughtsmen and engineering designers.
Private landowners or Federal Agencies responsible for cleaning up radiological environments are faced with the challenge of clearly defining the nature and extent of radiological contamination, implementing remedial alternatives, then statistically verifying that cleanup objectives have been met.
See what's new in the Second Edition: · Number of species included is increased from 6300 to over 8700, about 85% of the world's birds · Better data for many of the species included in the first edition - an exhaustive compilation of new data published from 1992 through 2007 · More comprehensive coverage of Latin America, Japan, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, and more coverage of research published in non-English language journals In 1992 the CRC Handbook of Avian Body Massesbroke new ground by providing a compilation of body masses for 6300 species, about two-thirds of the world's species.
In some cases, the larger cells may be further distinguished based on their scattering
characteristics (coccolithophorids) or the presence of both PE and chlorophyll (cryptophytes)
(Olson et al., 1989; Collier & Campell, 1999).
Many authors have reported the distributions and dynamics of each photosynthetic group
in the water column in different marine environments (Li, 1995; Campbell & Vaulot, 1993;
Vaulot & Marie, 1999).

An automated data acquisition system was installed to monitor the indoor air temperatures and
humidities, HAC operation, building pressures, and outdoor weather. An automated tracer-gas
system for continuous monitoring of house air change rates also was installed. This system
injected sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) into the house every 4 h to 6 h, allowed it to mix to a uniform
concentration, and then monitored the concentration decay in several zones.
There are a number of viewpoints about the most likely direction of travel but it is clear that the best
interests of the industry will be met through the re-letting process proceeding according to
published schedules, as the DfT is doing, so that the commercial negotiations on new build versus
continuous operation can take place as quickly as possible.
This Admiralty Notices to Mariners Bulletin (ANMB) is published by the UK Hydrographic
Office (UKHO). The UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency accepts that both the paper and
digital forms of the ANMB comply with carriage requirement for Notices to Mariners within
Regulation 18.104.22.168 of the revised Chapter V of the Safety of Life at Sea Convention, and the
Merchant Shipping (Safety of Navigation) Regulations, both of which came into force 1 July
In conclusion, the results reported herewith show a significant relationship between
epifluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry, but coefficients of variation were
considerably lower for bacterial counts estimated by flow cytometry than epifluorescence
microscopy. Generally, the use of flow cytometry in marine microbiology reduces the
processing time of the sample and increases the number of processed samples.
Up to present, in Vietnam, the traditional methods used to map marine bathymetry are still very popular. These techniques have advantages of giving a high accuracy but still show big disadvantages of taking too much time for the data acquisition and processing and of being very expensive for the field works. Compensated to these cons the remote sensing technique seems to be an ideal solution since the images covers almost places on the earth with very high frequency (hours) of acquisition and served with a reasonable price even some of them can be downloaded from the internet for...
Available data suggest that, in addition to the obvious catches of fish for human needs, the by-
catches in the world’s fisheries have a significant ecological impact and cause mortality amongst fin-fish
(particularly the juveniles of commercial fish species), as well as amongst benthic invertebrates, marine
mammals, turtles and birds.
.The research described in this report was prepared for the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD). The research was conducted in the RAND National Defense Research Institute, a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the OSD, the Joint Staff, the Unified Combatant Commands, the Department of the Navy, the Marine Corps, the defense agencies, and the defense Intelligence Community under Contract DASW01-01-C-0004.

For the coastal zones of Vietnam, the storm and monsoon waves are considered as the maximum waves for the designed of the marine constructions as sea dyke and other constructions in the coast and in the marine areas. The most challenges are to choose the appropriate storm wave model, to formulate the wind input data set and especially to find the wave data in such utmost dangerous sea state for model validation and for analyzing the forecast results.
