  • Caballero, J. A.; Gonzalez-Jimenez, R.; Donnelly, T. William (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    We perform a statistical analysis of the full set of parity-violating asymmetry data for elastic electron scattering including the most recent high precision measurement from Q-weak. Given the basis of the present analysis, ...
  • Saikawa, Eri; Rigby, Matthew; Prinn, Ronald G. (Copernicus GmbH, 2012-11)
    HCFC-22 (CHClF[subscript 2], chlorodifluoromethane) is an ozone-depleting substance (ODS) as well as a significant greenhouse gas (GHG). HCFC-22 has been used widely as a refrigerant fluid in cooling and air-conditioning ...

(American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2009-12)
    High-frequency, in situ observations from the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE) and System for Observation of halogenated Greenhouse gases in Europe (SOGE) networks for the period 1998 to 2008, combined ...
  • Kumar, Vijay M. S.; Morrison, David R.; Taylor, Washington (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2010-11)
    We develop a systematic framework for realizing general anomaly-free chiral 6D supergravity theories in F-theory. We focus on 6D (1, 0) models with one tensor multiplet whose gauge group is a product of simple factors ...
  • Selin, Noelle Eckley (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-04)
    The Minamata Convention aims to protect human health and the environment from anthropogenic emissions and releases of mercury. In the present study, the provisions of the Minamata Convention are examined to assess their ...
  • Xu, Yongsheng; Fu, Lee-Lueng; Tulloch, Ross (American Meteorological Society, 2011-08)
    The wavenumber spectra of wind kinetic energy over the ocean from Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT) observations have revealed complex spatial variability in the wavelength range of 1000–3000 km, with spectral slopes varying ...
  • Braha, Dan (Public Library of Science, 2012-10)
    Civil unrest is a powerful form of collective human dynamics, which has led to major transitions of societies in modern history. The study of collective human dynamics, including collective aggression, has been the focus ...
  • Censor-Hillel, Keren; Haeupler, Bernhard; Maymounkov, Petar; Kelner, Jonathan Adam (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-05)
    In this paper, we study the question of how efficiently a collection of interconnected nodes can perform a global computation in the GOSSIP model of communication. In this model, nodes do not know the global topology of ...
  • Jung, Heekyung; Lacombe, Julie; Mazzoni, Esteban O.; Liem, Karel F., Jr.; Grinstein, Jonathan; Mahony, Shaun; Mukhopadhyay, Debnath; Gifford, David K.; Young, Richard A. (Elsevier, 2010-09)
    In the developing spinal cord, regional and combinatorial activities of Hox transcription factors are critical in controlling motor neuron fates along the rostrocaudal axis, exemplified by the precise pattern of limb ...
  • Slotine, Jean-Jacques E.; Russo, Giovanni (American Physical Society, 2010-10)
    In many natural synchronization phenomena, communication between individual elements occurs not directly but rather through the environment. One of these instances is bacterial quorum sensing, where bacteria release signaling ...
  • Van Damme, M.; Clarisse, L.; Hurtmans, D. R.; Ngadi, Y.; Clerbaux, C.; Dolman, A. J.; Erisman, J. W.; Coheur, P. -F.; Heald, Colette L. (Copernicus GmbH, 2014-03)
    Ammonia (NH[subscript 3]) emissions in the atmosphere have increased substantially over the past decades, largely because of intensive livestock production and use of fertilizers. As a short-lived species, NH[subscript 3] ...
  • Ivy, Diane J.; Rigby, Matthew; Baasandorj, M.; Burkholder, J. B.; Prinn, Ronald G. (Copernicus GmbH, 2012-08)

    HCFC-22 (CHClF[subscript 2]) and HFC-134a (CH[subscript 2]FCF[subscript 3]) are two major gases currently used worldwide in domestic and commercial refrigeration and air conditioning. HCFC-22 contributes to stratospheric ...
  • Nikurashin, Maxim; Ferrari, Raffaele (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2011-04)
