  • nitrogen
  • And that positive conclusion is even without taking into consideration the negative environmental consequences of conventional agriculture, as excess nitrogen and phosphorous from chemical fertilizer run offs causing algae blooms killing off lakes and ponds, the poisoning of birds and animals with pesticides and insecticides (e.g., recent bee colony collapse phenomena as a case in point), etc. (the-scientist.com)
  • Nitrogen oxides are formed during combustion, and the excess oxygen obstructs NOx reduction in a conventional three-way catalyst. (chalmers.se)
  • practices
  • The Department of State, Department of Defense, and USAID work together with foreign governments, private companies and nongovernmental organizations to implement humanitarian mine action programs, reduce SA/LW and conventional munitions stockpiles (including MANPADS), and improve physical security and stockpile management (PSSM) practices at conventional weapons storage sites.

  • While organic farming may limit the amounts of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides entering the environment, it may not be the most efficient way to feed the world's more than 1 billion chronically hungry inhabitants, according to a new study comparing conventional and organic agricultural practices.

  • What needs to be done is to develop varieties that will respond well to organic practices and then test these against the conventional practices. A few more years of work are needed for this to happen. (the-scientist.com)
  • Wow, given the consistent evidence that organic food is more nutritious than conventionally grown food, by approximately the same proportions, it makes a good case for how organic food practices can keep us nutritiously satisfied without the additional calories it would take to eat the same amount of nutrition from conventional sources.  An important point for an under-nourished and increasingly obese nation.

  • Model
  • The resulting model is capable of providing variations in arterial pCO2, base excess, strong ion difference, hematocrit, plasma protein, phosphates and hemodilution/hemoconcentration, but insensitive to DPG and CO concentrations. (springer.com)
  • According to many proofs of the experimental results here, the newer idea for the surface adsorption is confirmed and explained, which is quite different from the conventional Gibbs surface excess model at the air/solution interface. (go.jp)
  • data
  • Conventional excess mixing functions for several binary liquid mixtures calculated by the new method are compared with the predictions of other theories and with both experimental and Monte Carlo data. (rsc.org)
  • open
  • The IG's investigators will evaluate select active DoD ammunition plants or other facilities where open burning and open detonation are used to dispose of excess conventional ammunition and explosives. (eponline.com)
  • large
  • This new method improves prediction of the effects of large molecular size differences on the excess properties of the mixture. (rsc.org)
