Experimental fish were captured around the payao by handline. Three yellowfin tuna (YT1-3, 22-26 cm FL) were captured from August 13-15, 2005. The details of each fish are given in Table 1. The fish were implanted with coded ultrasonic transmitters (V7-2L-R256 or V9P-2H-S256, Vemco Ltd., Canada). The V7 transmitter weighed 0.9 g in water, was 7 mm in diameter, and 20 mm long. This transmitter emitted a train of six pings for identification. The V9P transmitter, which has a pressure sensor, weighed 2.9 g in water, was 9 mm in diameter, and 46 mm long. The transmitter emitted a train of eight pings for identification and depth measurement. The surgical operations were performed just after catching the fish aboard a 10-m outrigger fishing boat and took only about 1 min for each fish. The fish were laid on their backs on a makeshift operating table. An incision of approximately 15 mm was made in the abdomen of the fish to allow the transmitter to be inserted. The wound was sutured with...
Exposure to hexavalent Cr compounds has been consistently found to be associated with an elevated incidence of respiratory cancers and other adverse health effects.3-5 Squamous cell carcinoma is the most prevalent form of lung cancer among Cr(VI)-exposed workers.6 The genotoxic potential of Cr(VI) has been confirmed in animal experiments and in several cell-based assays6a7 Inhalation of Cr(VI)-containing acid mists in electroplating industry leads to nasal septum ulceration and perforation, as well as impaired lung function such as decreased vital capacity and forced expiratory vol-ume.8 Other health consequences of exposure to Cr(VI) include pulmonary fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and bronchial asthma.9 Ingestion of Cr(VI) can result in the irritation of mucous membranes and, in severe cases, intestinal bleeding. High doses of Cr(VI) cause renal tubular necrosis and can be lethal. Animal studies have also detected teratogenic activity of Cr(VI).9a Cr(VI) is the second most...
It is interesting to note that the dockyard of Yokosuka has been the headquarters of Jamstec for years. In this dockyard, the deep diving system Shinkai 6500 and the vessel-support Yokosuka are usually located. We noticed with pleasure that Professor Imawaki Shiro, current President of the Soci t franco-japonaise d'Oc anographie of Japan, is actually one of the main actors in the headquarters of Jamstec in Yokosuka.
The case study presented in this chapter took place in the town of Saint-Leu (Reunion Island) where the demand for artificial habitats followed a space-sharing conflict. Indeed, to protect a coral reef rich in fish and with high ecological value, setting aside the areas coral heritage has been considered. This site is considered important by many, including by scientists, environmental associations, tourists, and fishermen, and the aims are contradictory, divided by considerations of the natural resources and protection of the environment and species. Fishing is a traditional activity carried out both by professionals and by boaters, and represents an important food.
A simplified version of the actual prevailing wind patterns on the earth's surface is shown in Figure 2-6. These prevailing surface wind patterns are most noticeable over the oceans and were of great practical importance in the days of large sailing ships, when the major wind systems received their names. The doldrums near the equator and the horse latitudes were much feared by sailors, because a ship could remain becalmed there for weeks at a time. The various wind belts have a tendency to shift north and south at times, and the winds sometimes reverse because of topographical features, weather patterns, or simply the greater variability of some of these wind systems. The trade winds and the prevailing westerlies are fairly reliable, at least over the larger oceans, but the polar easterlies barely exist. The prevailing westerlies in both
Clouds are building slowly along the horizon as afternoon breezes begin to stir the air. Cumulous clouds float over the northern shore of Lake Erie, casting shadows on fields of wheat and corn and soybeans. They float over the Tomato Capital of Canada. Over cattails and water lilies and disappearing bullfrogs. The breezes travel south over Lake Huron and over Ojibwe homelands on the south shore of the lake. They travel over the smokestacks of Sarnia, Detroit, and Windsor, and mix with air blowing north from Cleveland and the Ohio Valley. They ruffle flags on the small docks of homes along the St. Clair River, bending the plume of power-plant smoke and black-tipped flares from the refineries that shadow their backyards. They whip up waves at the mouth of the Detroit River and rock the fishing boats moored at the Wheatley Harbor where children scamper along the pier, casting lines in practice for the upcoming fishing derby.
This distinctive machine was designed as a propulsion motor for small ships below 500 t. We have applied melt-textured GdBa2Cu3O (Gd-123) HTS bulks as pole-field magnets to the synchronous machine. These bulk HTS can provide a high magnetic field over 3 T at 77 K. The present motor has eight bulk HTS whose sizes are 60 mm in diameter and 20 mm in thickness, fixed on a single rotor plate. They were cooled down below Tc by using a circulation of liquid nitrogen. The structure of our rotor plate, bulk HTS magnets being cooled by a lateral flow of cryogen, benefits from the larger thermal conductivity of the bulk-HTS crystals along the crystallographic a-b plane. In addition, for thermal insulation, the output shaft connects the rotor plate through the intermediary of GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics) parts, the whole being called the torque tube. Thanks to this structure, we succeeded in reducing the conductive heat invasion below 13 W.
Using a 12-m fast and easy-to-handle catamaran. Taking into account the geographical scope of the two other campaigns, retrieval in the south of Italy and Spain, in the Balearic islands and Sicilia was carried out using the oceanographic vessel THETYS II from June 17 to June 26, 2005. In 2006, the oceanographic vessel L'EUROPE recovered stations located on the Maghreb coast from August 10 to August 27. These vessels provided vital logistical support (diving equipment, samples processing, and preservation), including a zodiac equipped with detection instruments (sweep sonar, vertical echo sounder) for station retrieval operations.
How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience
Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
