Notes: [Auszug] Damage caused by introduced species results from the high population densities and large body sizes that they attain in their new location. Escape from the effects of natural enemies is a frequent explanation given for the success of introduced species. Because some parasites can reduce host ...

Use of low frequencies for sub-basalt imaging (2003)
Oxford, UK : Blackwell Science Ltd
Geophysical prospecting 51 (2003), S. 0

Topics: Geosciences , Physics
Notes: Many prospective passive ocean margins are covered by large areas of basalts. These basalts are often extremely heterogeneous and scatter the seismic energy of the conventional seismic reflection system so that it becomes difficult to obtain information on deeper reflectors. Since high frequencies are scattered more than low frequencies, we argue that the acquisition system for sub-basalt targets should be modified to emphasize the low frequencies, using much larger airguns, and towing the source and receivers at about 20 m depth. In the summer of 2001 we obtained seismic reflection data over basalt in the northeast Atlantic using a system modified to enhance the low-frequency energy. These new data show deep reflections that are not visible on lines shot in the same places with a conventional system.

Description: The next generation of climate-driven, disease prediction models will most likely require a mechanistically based, dynamical framework that parameterizes key processes at a variety of locations. Over the next two decades, consensus climate predictions make it possible to produce forecasts for a number of important infectious diseases that are largely independent of the uncertainty of longer-term emissions scenarios. In particular, the role of climate in the modulation of seasonal disease transmission needs to be unravelled from the complex dynamics resulting from the interaction of transmission with herd immunity and intervention measures that depend upon previous burdens of infection. Progress is also needed to solve the mismatch between climate projections and disease projections at the scale of public health interventions. In the time horizon of seasons to years, early warning systems should benefit from current developments on multi-model ensemble climate prediction systems, particularly in areas where high skill levels of climate models coincide with regions where large epidemics take place. A better understanding of the role of climate extremes on infectious diseases is urgently needed. ©2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht
