    Description: This study investigates the physical conditions (water depth, current speed, salinity, temperature) in Lianzhou Bay, a shallow coastal bay in southern China, during two expeditions in the dry and wet seasons of 2011. Based on these expedition data, basic hydrodynamic parameters like Brunt-Väisälä Frequency, Richardson Number, Rossby radius, and Resonance Period are calculated. The results show that Lianzhou Bay is characterized by comparatively small quantity of freshwater input and weak stratification. Strong tides, which are spatially uniform within the bay, cause turbulent mixing. Residence time of the water is shorter in winter due to a stronger coastal current in that season. Consideration of the water movement may help to reduce the harmful ecological impact of aquaculture waste water discharge.

    Description: OBJECTIVESSince 2004, the Montreal heat response plan (MHRP) has been developed and implemented on the Island of Montreal to reduce heat-related health effects in the general population. In this paper, we aimed to assess the barriers and facilitators to implementation of the MHRP and evaluate the awareness of key elements of the plan by healthcare professionals and individuals from vulnerable populations. METHODSData were gathered from monitoring reports and a questionnaire administered to managers of healthcare institutions and healthcare workers in Montreal-area health and social services institutions. Individual interviews and focus groups with healthcare workers and with individuals with schizophrenia or suffering from drug or alcohol dependencies were performed. Data were categorized according to predefined subthemes. Coding matrices were then used to determine the most frequently occurring elements in the subthemes. RESULTSOur results indicate that actions are progressively implemented each year in the healthcare network. Intensification of surveillance for signs of heat-related illness is the most frequently reported measure. Identification and prioritization of clientele and homecare patients are identified as a challenge, as is ensuring the availability of sufficient personnel during a heat wave. Analysis of practice and awareness in healthcare professionals reveals that preventive measures are known and applied by the personnel. Individuals from vulnerable population groups were not uniformly aware of preventive measures, and consequently, variability was observed in their application. CONCLUSIONThe framework proposed in this study revealed valuable information that can be useful to improve plans aimed at reducing heat-related health effects in the population.

    Description: Since various leading university presses had reached the opposite conclusion about our work, I was shocked, but there was nothing that I could do. [...]like most people who do this kind of work, Karl does not deny that Asia exists, but her article implies that its existence is far less important than...

    Description: The New Zealand International Polar Year–Census of Antarctic Marine Life (NZ IPY-CAML) project added to previous benthic studies in the Ross Sea by extending sampling north from the continental shelf to previously unsampled areas of the shelf break, slope, abyssal plain and seamounts in the region. The aim of the current study is to give first insights into the deep-sea community structure of the Ross Sea focussing on a component of the benthic boundary layer that is macrofaunal crustaceans collected one metre above the seafloor. We assess changes in Ross Sea crustacean community composition from the shelf break (474 m) to the abyss (3,490 m) and compare the Ross Sea crustacean fauna to areas elsewhere in the Southern Ocean. Analyses reveal high relative abundances, suggesting an important role in the food web. Among the peracarid crustaceans, there was a decline in the proportion of amphipods with increasing depth. Three of 15 isopod families (Acanthaspidiidae, Nannoniscidae and Desmosomatidae) were identified to species level and about 72 % of the species were new to science. Isopod diversity in the Ross Sea abyss appears to be comparable to that in the highly speciose Weddell deep sea. Standardised sampling of these crustacean communities allows setting the biodiversity of the Ross Sea into a global context.

    Description: We analyze the temporal evolution of emerging fields within several scientific disciplines in terms of numbers of authors and publications. From bibliographic searches we construct databases of authors, papers, and their dates of publication. We show that the temporal development of each field, while different in detail, is well described by population contagion models, suitably adapted from epidemiology to reflect the dynamics of scientific interaction. Dynamical parameters are estimated and discussed to reflect fundamental characteristics of the field, such as time of apprenticeship and recruitment rate. We also show that fields are characterized by simple scaling laws relating numbers of new publications to new authors, with exponents that reflect increasing or decreasing returns in scientific productivity.

    Description: Averaged event-related EEG frequency response profiles were generated from normalized spectral analysis data obtained in 2 studies of short-term memory. A continuous performance task was used requiring a keyboard response to targeted letter sequences presented on a video screen at 2 sec. intervals. Seven 2 Hz frequency bands between 5–15 Hz were evaluated. In the first study (n=14) response profiles from control and target stimuli were compared. This analysis disclosed 1) a short latency increase at 5–7 and 7–9 Hz in posterior cortex that was identical in both conditions and was attributed to frequency manifestations of the extrinsic visual evoked response (VEP), 2) a separate long-latency increase of uncertain origin at 5–7 Hz in anterior cortex only in the task condition, and 3) a generalized mid-latency alpha frequency suppression and recovery pattern (event-related desynchronization, or ERD) in all bands during both conditions. The ERD in bands between 9–13 Hz was significantly increased at left central and bilateral parietal cortex during target recall. The second study (n=26) compared good vs. poor performance in the target recall task. Findings disclosed significant differences at 7–9 Hz localized to posterior temporal cortex bilaterally. These differences included reduced magnitude in the VEP component and increased suppression in the ERD component among good performers.
