Genomic Insights into Methanotrophy: The Complete Genome Sequence of Methylococcus capsulatus (Bath)
(Public Library of Science, 2004-09-21)
Methanotrophs are ubiquitous bacteria that can use the greenhouse gas methane as a sole carbon and energy source for growth, thus playing major roles in global carbon cycles, and in particular, substantially reducing ...
Direct measurements of the mean flow and eddy kinetic energy structure of the upper ocean circuletion in the NE Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-19)
The upper ocean circulation in the sub-polar northeast Atlantic has been a challenge to quantify due to strong and variable wind-forcing, and strong and variable deep currents that lead to large uncertainties in the use ...
MassSorter: a tool for administrating and analyzing data from mass spectrometry experiments on proteins with known amino acid sequences
(BioMed Central, 2006-01-26)
Background: Proteomics is the study of the proteome, and is critical to the understanding of cellular processes. Two central and related tasks of proteomics are protein identification and protein characterization. Many ...
Holocene mean July temperature and winter precipitation in western Norway inferred from palynological and glaciological lake-sediment proxies
Reconstructions of mean July temperature (Tjul) and winter precipitation (Pw) for the last 11/500 years on the Folgefonna peninsula are presented. Tjul was reconstructed using pollen-climate transfer functions and Pw was ...
Atmospheric boundary layers in storms: advanced theory and modelling applications
(European Geosciences Union/Copernicus, 2005-03-29)
Turbulent planetary boundary layers (PBLs) control the exchange processes between the atmosphere and the ocean/land. The key problems of PBL physics are to determine the PBL height, the momentum, energy and matter fluxes ...
Deep chlorophyll a maxima (DCMs) in pelagic Antarctic waters. II. Relation to bathymetric features and dissolved iron concentrations
A deep chlorophyll a maximum (DCM) at depths between 60 and 90 m in waters south of the Antarctic Polar Front (APF) occurs only in pelagic waters where the chlorophyll a concentrations in the upper mixed layer (UML) are ...
Escape mortality of cod, sithe and haddock in a Barents Sea trawl fishery
Experiments are described to investigate the survival of gadoid sh in the Barents Sea escaping from a demersal trawl, with and without a sorting grid, at high and low levels of shing intensity. The mortality for cod ...
The effect of wind speed products and wind speed-gas exchange relationships on interannual variability of the air-sea CO2 gas transfer velocity
The lack of a firm relationship between wind speed (U10) and gas transfer velocity (k) is considered to be one of the factors that hinders accurate quantification of interannual variations of ocean–atmosphere CO2 fluxes. ...
Heat flux variations in the eastern Norwegian Atlantic Current toward
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-21)
Numerical Modeling of Supercritical ‘Out-Salting’ in the “Atlantis II Deep” (Red Sea) Hydrothermal System
(Bentham Open, 2007)
Supercritical water behaves close to that of a non-polar fluid and its ability to dissolve salt ions is very low. In rifting locations world-wide, where hot vents occur, it has been shown that seawater attains supercritical ...
