Low-temperature sensitivity and enhanced Bohr effect in red deer (Cervus elaphus) haemoglobin: a molecular adaptive strategy to life at high altitude and low temperature. (1/187)

A study of the functional properties of haemoglobin from red deer (Cervus elaphus) whose habitat varies over a wide range of latitude, was performed. The oxygen-binding properties of the most common haemoglobin phenotype from the species living in Sardinia were examined with particular attention to the effect of pH, chloride, 2, 3-bisphosphoglycerate and temperature. Results indicate that red deer haemoglobin, like all haemoglobins from ruminants so far examined, is characterized by a low intrinsic oxygen affinity, with chloride being its main physiological modulator in vivo. The functional results and the low temperature sensitivity of the oxygen affinity are discussed in the light of the amino acid sequence of closely related ruminant haemoglobins.  (+info)

Acclimation of Arabidopsis leaves developing at low temperatures. Increasing cytoplasmic volume accompanies increased activities of enzymes in the Calvin cycle and in the sucrose-biosynthesis pathway. (2/187)

Photosynthetic and metabolic acclimation to low growth temperatures were studied in Arabidopsis (Heynh.). Plants were grown at 23 degrees C and then shifted to 5 degrees C. We compared the leaves shifted to 5 degrees C for 10 d and the new leaves developed at 5 degrees C with the control leaves on plants that had been left at 23 degrees C. Leaf development at 5 degrees C resulted in the recovery of photosynthesis to rates comparable with those achieved by control leaves at 23 degrees C. There was a shift in the partitioning of carbon from starch and toward sucrose (Suc) in leaves that developed at 5 degrees C. The recovery of photosynthetic capacity and the redirection of carbon to Suc in these leaves were associated with coordinated increases in the activity of several Calvin-cycle enzymes, even larger increases in the activity of key enzymes for Suc biosynthesis, and an increase in the phosphate available for metabolism. Development of leaves at 5 degrees C also led to an increase in cytoplasmic volume and a decrease in vacuolar volume, which may provide an important mechanism for increasing the enzymes and metabolites in cold-acclimated leaves. Understanding the mechanisms underlying such structural changes during leaf development in the cold could result in novel approaches to increasing plant yield.  (+info)

Accumulation of small heat-shock protein homologs in the endoplasmic reticulum of cortical parenchyma cells in mulberry in association with seasonal cold acclimation. (3/187)

Cortical parenchyma cells of mulberry (Morus bombycis Koidz.) trees acquire extremely high freezing tolerance in winter as a result of seasonal cold acclimation. The amount of total proteins in endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-enriched fractions isolated from these cells increased in parallel with the process of cold acclimation. Protein compositions in the ER-enriched fraction also changed seasonally, with a prominent accumulation of 20-kD (WAP20) and 27-kD (WAP27) proteins in winter. The N-terminal amino acid sequence of WAP20 exhibited homology to ER-localized small heat-shock proteins (smHSPs), whereas that of WAP27 did not exhibit homology to any known proteins. Like other smHSPs, WAP20 formed a complex of high molecular mass in native-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Furthermore, not only WAP20 but also 21-kD proteins reacted with antibodies against WAP20. Fractionation of the crude microsomes by isopycnic sucrose-gradient centrifugation revealed that both WAP27 and WAP20 were distributed on a density corresponding to the fractions with higher activity of ER marker enzyme, suggesting localization of these proteins in the ER. When ER-enriched fractions were treated with trypsin in the absence of detergent, WAP20 and WAP27 were undigested, suggesting localization of these proteins inside the ER vesicle. The accumulation of a large quantity of smHSPs in the ER in winter as a result of seasonal cold acclimation indicates that these proteins may play a significant role in the acquisition of freezing tolerance in cortical parenchyma cells of mulberry trees.  (+info)

Y-Chromosome evidence for a northward migration of modern humans into Eastern Asia during the last Ice Age. (4/187)

The timing and nature of the arrival and the subsequent expansion of modern humans into eastern Asia remains controversial. Using Y-chromosome biallelic markers, we investigated the ancient human-migration patterns in eastern Asia. Our data indicate that southern populations in eastern Asia are much more polymorphic than northern populations, which have only a subset of the southern haplotypes. This pattern indicates that the first settlement of modern humans in eastern Asia occurred in mainland Southeast Asia during the last Ice Age, coinciding with the absence of human fossils in eastern Asia, 50,000-100,000 years ago. After the initial peopling, a great northward migration extended into northern China and Siberia.  (+info)

Seasonal variations in coronary heart disease. (5/187)

Coronary heart disease exhibits a winter peak and summer trough in incidence and mortality, in countries both north and south of the equator. In England and Wales, the winter peak accounts for an additional 20,000 deaths per annum. It is likely that this reflects seasonal variations in risk factors. Seasonal variations have been demonstrated in a number of lifestyle risk factors such a physical activity and diet. However, a number of studies have also suggested a direct effect of environmental temperature on physiological and rheological factors. We review the available evidence on seasonal variations in coronary heart disease and possible explanations for them.  (+info)

New psychrophilic and psychrotolerant Bacillus marinus strains from tropical and polar deep-sea sediments and emended description of the species. (6/187)

In contrast to the current view that psychrophily combined with an absolute requirement for NaCl is connected with the Gram-negative cell wall type, psychrophilic and psychrotolerant, NaCl-requiring, Gram-positive bacteria have been isolated from tropical Atlantic, Arctic and Antarctic deep-sea sediments. Some of the isolates are even extremely psychrophilic, having maximum growth temperatures of 4 degrees C. On the basis of phenotypic characteristics, DNA base analyses, DNA-DNA hybridizations and partial and complete 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses, the strains from the three distinct geographical regions have been allocated to the obligately marine species Bacillus marinus. The distribution and origin of B. marinus are discussed and an emended description of the species is presented.  (+info)

Heat-shock protein expression is absent in the antarctic fish Trematomus bernacchii (family Nototheniidae). (7/187)

The heat-shock response, the enhanced expression of one or more classes of molecular chaperones termed heat-shock proteins (hsps) in response to stress induced by high temperatures, is commonly viewed as a 'universal' characteristic of organisms. We examined the occurrence of the heat-shock response in a highly cold-adapted, stenothermal Antarctic teleost fish, Trematomus bernacchii, to determine whether this response has persisted in a lineage that has encountered very low and stable temperatures for at least the past 14-25 million years. The patterns of protein synthesis observed in in vivo metabolic labelling experiments that involved injection of (35)S-labelled methionine and cysteine into whole fish previously subjected to a heat stress of 10 degrees C yielded no evidence for synthesis of any size class of heat-shock protein. Parallel in vivo labelling experiments with isolated hepatocytes similarly showed significant amounts of protein synthesis, but no indication of enhanced expression of any class of hsp. The heavy metal cadmium, which is known to induce synthesis of hsps, also failed to alter the pattern of proteins synthesized in hepatocytes. Although stress-induced chaperones could not be detected under any of the experimental condition used, solid-phase antibody (western) analysis revealed that a constitutively expressed 70 kDa chaperone was present in this species, as predicted on the basis of requirements for chaperoning during protein synthesis. Amounts of the constitutively expressed 70 kDa chaperone increased in brain, but not in gill, during 22 days of acclimation to 5 degrees C. The apparent absence of a heat-shock response in this highly stenothermal species is interpreted as an indication that a physiological capacity observed in almost all other organisms has been lost as a result of the absence of positive selection during evolution at stable sub-zero temperatures. Whether the loss of the heat-shock response is due to dysfunctional genes for inducible hsps (loss of open reading frames or functional regulatory regions), unstable messenger RNAs, the absence of a functional heat-shock factor or some other lesion remains to be determined.  (+info)

Mitochondrial oxyconformity and cold adaptation in the polychaete Nereis pelagica and the bivalve Arctica islandica from the Baltic and White Seas. (8/187)

The rates of oxygen uptake of the marine polychaete Nereis pelagica and the bivalve Arctica islandica depend on the availability of ambient oxygen. This is manifest both at the tissue level and in isolated mitochondria studied between oxygen tensions (P(O2)) of 6.3 and 47.6 kPa (47-357 mmHg). Oxyconformity was found in both Baltic Sea (Kiel Bight) and cold-adapted White Sea populations of the two species. However, mitochondria isolated from White Sea specimens of N. pelagica and A. islandica showed a two- to threefold higher aerobic capacity than mitochondria prepared from Baltic Sea specimens. We tested whether mitochondrial oxyconformity can be explained by an additional electron pathway that is directly controlled by P(O2). Mitochondrial respiration of both invertebrate species was inhibited by cyanide (KCN) and by salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM). The overall rate of mitochondrial oxygen consumption increased at high P(O2). Phosphorylation efficiency (ADP/O ratio) decreased at elevated P(O2) (27.5-47.6 kPa, 206-357 mmHg), regardless of whether malate or succinate was used as a substrate. In contrast to the invertebrate mitochondria studied, mitochondria isolated from bovine heart, as an oxyregulating control species, did not show an elevated rate of oxygen uptake at high P(O2) in any respiratory state, with the exception of state 2 malate respiration. In addition, rates of ATP formation, respiratory control ratios (RCR) and ADP/O ratios remained virtually unchanged or even tended to decreased. In conclusion, the comparison between mitochondria from oxyregulating and oxyconforming organisms supports the existence of an alternative oxidase in addition to the classical cytochrome c oxidase. In accordance with models discussed previously, oxidative phosphorylation does not explain the rate of mitochondrial oxygen consumption during progressive activation of the alternative electron transport system. We discuss the alternative system, thought to be adaptive in confined, usually hypoxic environments, where excess oxygen can be eliminated and oxygen levels can be kept low by an increase in the rate of oxygen consumption, thereby minimizing the risk of oxidative stress.  (+info)

Ventilation is critical in any climate because it replaces stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, and flushes out potential pollutants caused by combustion appliances or offgassing materials. Ventilation is especially important in cold climates, where homes are often built tighter and allow less natural air leakage.. Ventilation also controls indoor humidity, which is created by activities like cooking, showering, and breathing. If moist air is not exhausted, it can build up to damaging levels, penetrate different parts of the home, such as the walls and roof, and potentially cause moisture problems like mold and rot.. You can add mechanical ventilation through fans, vent hoods, or with a heat-recovery ventilator (HRV), depending on the nature of the situation.. ...

We know a lot about how carbon dioxide (CO2) levels can drive climate change, but how about the way that climate change can cause fluctuations in CO2 levels? New research from an international team of scientists reveals one of the mechanisms by which a colder climate was accompanied by depleted atmospheric CO2 during past ice ages.. The overall goal of the work is to better understand how and why the earth goes through periodic climate change, which could shed light on how man-made factors could affect the global climate.. Earths average temperature has naturally fluctuated by about 4 to 5 degrees Celsius over the course of the past million years as the planet has cycled in and out of glacial periods. During that time, the earths atmospheric CO2 levels have fluctuated between roughly 180 and 280 parts per million (ppm) every 100,000 years or so. (In recent years, man-made carbon emissions have boosted that concentration up to over 400 ppm.). About 10 years ago, researchers noticed a close ...
Be sure your doors fit in their frames and that they have a working rubber sweep on the bottom and that they meet an airtight gasket all around. If not, fix them before winter hits.. Frozen pipes are a huge problem in cold climates. We had trouble with our lines freezing, even though our water lines are eight feet underground. Being off grid, the water in our water lines doesnt move as often as it does in a normal system; our pump only kicks on when we throw the switch to fill our storage tanks in the basement. Therefore, the water sits in the line for hours and can freeze when the frost goes deep and the temperatures are sub-zero. To take care of that, Will installed a heat-line inside of the black plastic water pipe, pushed from our basement, back 100 feet with an electricians fish tape.. When installing a new water line in cold climates, it helps immensely to lay the water line, then add at least four inches of rigid insulation board (meant for soil contact) over the line to prevent ...
Of the skeletal muscles and heart masses examined in this study, only heart mass increased significantly with cold acclimation, and photoperiod did not significantly influence any of the muscle masses. Similar increases in both Ṁsum and heart mass in winter relative to summer for species wintering in cold climates (Swanson, 2010; Liknes and Swanson, 2011a) suggest that winter increments of heart mass are an important and general contributor to metabolic adjustments to cold climates in small birds. Moreover, these data suggest that temperature is the prominent driver of summer to winter variation in exercise organs in birds and that increases in heart mass in response to elevated thermogenic demands help drive winter increases in organismal thermogenic capacity. Heart mass is also positively correlated with maximum exercise metabolic capacity within individual house sparrows, Passer domesticus (Chappell et al., 1999), and red junglefowl, Gallus gallus (Hammond et al., 2000), suggesting that ...
Single-span bridges have abutments at each end that support the weight of the bridge and serve as retaining walls to resist lateral movement of the earthen fill of the bridge approach.[1] Multi-span bridges require piers to support the ends of spans between these abutments. In cold climates, the upstream edge of a pier may include a starkwater to prevent accumulation of broken ice during peak snowmelt flows. The starkwater has a sharpened upstream edge sometimes called a cutwater. The cutwater edge may be of concrete or masonry, but is often capped with a steel angle to resist abrasion and focus force at a single point to fracture floating pieces of ice striking the pier. In cold climates, the starling is typically sloped at an angle of about 45° so current pushing against the ice tends to lift the downstream edge of the ice translating horizontal force of the current to vertical force against a thinner cross-section of ice until unsupported weight of ice fractures the piece of ice allowing it ...

The growth performance of animals is often affected by extreme environmental conditions. In the case of swine, generally a cold environment will increase feed intake as the pig strives to maintain body temperature, while warmer environments may reduce growth, increase body maintenance demands, and subject the animal to environmental stress. Confinement houses are widely used as a primary means of modifying the environment to improve conditions for the growth of swine. Environment in these structures is usually controlled by natural or mechanical ventilation and by insulation for cold climates and limited use of evaporative cooling for summertime conditions. Most swine producers in Kentucky have growing-finishing production facilities that are naturally ventilated with curtains on both sidewalls. During the summer, the inside temperature of these facilities often reaches levels that can cause heat stress for the animals and adversely affect pig growth. Few hog houses are equipped with any method of
Our body maintains a constant body temperature by balancing heat lost and heat gained to keep out bodies at the optimum temperature which is 37 degrees Celcius.. When we go to places with high climates, our body temperature will increase, but receptors in our skin will detect the change in temperature sending a message to our brain (the processing centre), which will receive the information and co-ordinate a response, sending a message to the effector which in this case would be our sweat glands. We then release sweat which evaporates on the skin to cool us down and reduce our body temperature.. Similarly when we visit cold climates, receptors in the skin will detect the change in environment, but this time the effector would be our muscles. When we are cold, we shiver - this is basically our muscles rapidly contracting and releasing, which warms them up…. ...

Merino are an ancient breed of very tough sheep and they are able to survive in extremely cold climates and very hot climates. The Merino base layer is made from 100% Merino yarn and has a very fine, lightweight and soft feel. They are also breathable in summer and warm in winter. This provides a base layer that is versatile and adaptive to varying conditions. For longer or multi-day adventures they are perfectly suited, where space and weight are at a premium. They do not retain body odour, allowing them to be worn multiple days in a row. These properties make them ideal for expedition length adventures as well as short training sessions - no need to wash them after these sessions.. The versatility and functionality of the base layer is really impressive and has the added benefit of being very comfortable with a slim fit design. The Merino wool also dries quickly after being fully immersed in water and even retains about 40% body heat when wet. It packs into a neat size and can be stored (when ...
The longer the trip, the lighter you should pack. This might seem strange, but its true you can afford to lug a heavy bag around for a week or two, but do you want to have anything extra for a year? Stick to the absolute basics and know what you can and cannot buy at your destination(s). Theres no point in bringing 6 months of toothpaste to Europe or buying a sarong at home to take to the tropics. If you are visiting several climates, try to arrange it so you visit the warmer places first and coldest last. That way you can purchase sweaters and long pants and not have to carry them any more than needed. Alternately, visit cold climates first and then ship unneeded layers home - or sell them off. A good rule of thumb is to bring one outfit for the hottest day youre likely to encounter, one for an average day, and one for the coldest. Make sure everything goes with everything else (if thats important to you), and remember that layers are always best ...
A common threat in cold climates to all members of the class Insecta is the danger of freezing in living tissues. Ice formation presents many hardships to biological systems, some more obvious than others. While the expanding nature of water molecules rupturing cell tissues may be apparent, even mechanisms that exclude ice to outside the cell can wreak havoc on cellular function. Highly concentrated solutes in extracellular ice can disrupt concentration gradients and force dehydration of tissue as well as distorting intercellular signaling. This severing of cellular communication requires that every cell function on its own during exposure to freezing temperatures. Thats a pretty scary prospect for a creature housing billions of cells in different kinds of tissues!. One of the strategies that insects (and other small animals and some plants) employ to survive harsh exposure is that of freeze avoidance. These creatures cannot withstand ice formation in the body and must develop an advanced ...

One of our tiniest birds, the Golden-crowned Kinglet is remarkable in its ability to survive in cold climates. Nesting in northern forest, wintering throughout much of the continent, it is usually in dense conifers which undoubtedly help provide shelter from the cold. This choice of habitat also makes the Golden-crown hard to see, but it may be detected by its high thin callnotes, and then glimpsed as it flits about high in the spruce trees.

Koolasuchus inhabited rift valleys in southern Australia during the Early Cretaceous. During this time the area was below the Antarctic Circle, and temperatures were relatively cool for the Mesozoic. Based on the coarse-grained rocks in which remains were found, Koolasuchus likely lived in fast-moving streams. As a large aquatic predator, it was similar in lifestyle to crocodilians. Although eusuchians and kin were common during the Early Cretaceous, they were absent from southern Australia 120 million years ago, possibly because of the cold climate. By 110 Ma, represented by rocks in the Dinosaur Cove fossil locality, temperatures had warmed and crocodilians had returned to the area. These crocodilians likely displaced Koolasuchus, leading to its disappearance in younger rocks.[6] ...
The winter months are here! For those of us who live or work in in a cold climate, some form of heat is on, the windows are closed, and we may be sneezing and wheezing. Analytically-minded engineers are undoubtedly asking how they can design and manage HVAC systems to mitigate winter-time dry skin, chapped lips, colds, and asthma flare-ups. First, we need to understand the causes of these symptoms. Dry skin is easy to understand, but allergy-related illnesses such as asthma are more confusing. Asthma . . .
Poynting effect generally refers to the change in the vapor pressure of a liquid when a non-condensable gas is mixed with the vapor at saturated conditions. The critical temperature of oxygen is -118° C and of N2O is 36.5°C. When these gases are mixed in a same cylinder, then the critical temperature of the mixture becomes -6° C due to Poynting effect and the mixture remains as gas at room temperature.In cold climates if the temperature is less than -6°C,then N2O will separate into its liquid form and will remain in the bottom of the cylinder and the patient will get only O2 initially and hence will not ...

Whether a roof is framed or is trussed, and whether roofing is asphalt, metal, or tile, there are principles that should be followed to minimize the chances of failure leading to water intrusion. Rainwater collects in valleys, and these concentrations increase the chances for water to run up under the roofing at those locations. If valleys exist in the roof, make sure water can flow unimpeded for several feet on either side of the valley. Do not place a dormer or chimney in or near the valley, and do not place dormers close together. When there is an obstruction such as a chimney, or where a "blind" valley occurs between two parallel roofs, there needs to be a substantial cricket that directs water around the obstruction or out of the blind valley. Where an eave ends against a wall, kick-out flashing is needed to prevent water that runs down the joint between wall and roof from penetrating and running behind the siding below.. Some roof leaks are not roof leaks at all. In cold climates, warm ...

The birds living in cold climates, like Fairbanks, Alaska (pictured) had bigger brains, and smaller bodies, than those living in more moderate, easy-going climes. Either one might be easy to explain on its own, but the combination is unexpected. Usually, both body size and brain size go up hand in hand (or, in this case, wing in wing). Its not entirely clear how this is happening, although it certainly suggests there are some strong weather-related selection pressures shaping both features ...
An important news channel did a narrative that is really negative on spray tanning, attempting to say that last year is carcinogenic it. Tanning has been popular since the early 20th century, but the health risks associated with the suns UV rays have made maintaining an even tan considerably more challenging, particularly for those that live in cold climates. It has provided men with a way to get and keep a healthy- looking, even tan without being exposed to the suns beams or those of a tanning bed. Hawaiian Tropic and Neutrogena offer sunless tanning sprays for simple application and even coverage. Tanning oils generally have low or no sun protection factor (SPF) so your skin will tan quicker. This will leave you with an even tan ...

four-handed relatives who have thus far been wintered in northern menageries, it may be said that the sensitiveness of their lungs contrasts strangely with the tough vigor of their digestive organs. In proportion to his size, a rhesus baboon eats more than a wolf; between morning and night a ceboo monkey will devour his own weight in bananas, and, where the cravings of a naturally vigorous stomach are increased by the stimulus of a cold climate, it seems almost impossible to surfeit a savage with palatable food; his appetite is the faithful exponent of his peptic capacity, and before the fauces positively refuse to ingest there is little danger that the gastric apparatus will fail to digest.

Ivan3man:. Ivan3Man: "Charge separation requires an input of energy; so, what is that source of energy?". Yes, there must be an ultimate source of energy. And, that hasnt been identified, but there is indirect evidence that there is an unknown ultimate source - 99.99% of the visible Universe is plasma with charge seperation. As far as intermediate sources of charge seperation, according to Plasma Universe theory, galaxies have a plasmoid at their center, as opposed to a "black hole", this plasmoid acts to seperate charge and emits a preponderance of electrons in one direction from its axis of rotation and a preponderance of ions from the other end of the axis of rotation.. Once this charge seperation has been achieved, the inherent attraction and repulsion of electromagnetism provided the organizational & energy dynamics for large scale structures in the Universe with a significant role for gravity, but not the predominate role - what that role is exactly is unknown..

We investigate the low energy dynamics of ${\cal N}=1$ supersymmetric $SO(N)$ gauge theories with a single symmetric tensor matter field. These theories exhibit non-trivial matching of global t Hooft anomalies at the origin of moduli space. We argue that their quantum moduli spaces possess distinct Higgs and confining branches which touch at the origin in an interacting nonabelian Coulomb phase. The matching of anomalies between microscopic degrees of freedom and colorless moduli therefore appears to be coincidental. A formal mathematical relation between the $SO(N)$ model and an analogous $Sp(2N)$ theory with a single antisymmetric matter field provides an explanation for the anomaly matching coincidence ...

Back in the 1960s, quiet scientific dialogue began about global climate change and how it can be manipulated.. What might have turned into a productive discussion of responsible protection of Earths climate and ecosystem had eventually evolved into a mad, controlling science experiment. By the 21st century, jumbo jets were being deployed to drop billions of dollars of nanosized aluminum and other particles into the skies. In attempts to reflect sunlight away from the Earth and cool climate temperatures, this science experiment has exploited populations of people to mass amounts of airborne metals that are literally raining down and poisoning everyone, slowly, subtly.. According to neuro-surgeon Russell L. Blaylock, the nanosized aluminum particles found in chem-trails are contributing heavily to degenerative disease today.. Like in bio-engineering, where scientists rewire the DNA of crops, creating genetically modified foods, geo-engineering is the global attempt to manipulate the sun and ...
These plants can tolerate temperatures as low as about 2˚C, but they wont survive even a light frost. Temperatures of 7˚C and above are ideal for this tender perennial. It prefers a location in full shade, especially if you live in a warm, sunny climate. Although the plant will grow in partial sunlight in a cool climate, it wont tolerate bright sunlight or hot summers. The plant performs best in rich soil, so dig in plenty of compost or well-rotted manure before planting. Water the plant regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but never soggy. As a general rule, one weekly watering is sufficient unless the weather is hot, but always water immediately if the foliage begins to look wilted. ...

The most obvious function of clothing is to improve the comfort of the wearer, by protecting the wearer from the elements. In hot climates, clothing provides protection from sunburn or wind damage, while in cold climates its thermal insulation properties are generally more important. The shelter usually reduces the functional need for clothing. For example, coats, hats, gloves, and other superficial layers are normally removed when entering a warm home, particularly if one is residing or sleeping there. Similarly, clothing has seasonal and regional aspects, so that thinner materials and fewer layers of clothing are generally worn in warmer seasons and regions than in colder ones.. Clothing performs a range of social and cultural functions, such as individual, occupational and gender differentiation, and social status.[6] In many societies, norms about clothing reflect standards of modesty, religion, gender, and social status. Clothing may also function as a form of adornment and an expression of ...
The type of system best suited to a particular application depends on many factors, including: availability and cost of each type of biomass (e.g. chip, pellet or logs), competing fuel cost (e.g. fuel oil and natural gas), thermal peak and annual load, building size and type, space availability, operation and maintenance (O&M) staff availability, and local emissions regulations.. For buildings or campuses with more than 100,000 ft² to heat in a moderately cold climate, a system fuelled with wood chips will probably be the most economical, assuming that there is a stable local chip supply. The economics are even better for buildings with a year-round hot water or steam load or when competing against high-priced fossil fuels.. For buildings less than 10,000 ft² in a moderately cold climate, a wood pellet system might be the best option. These systems can be manually loaded with 40-lb bags of pellets. For larger systems, it is usually best to have pellets delivered in bulk (not bagged), where ...
Physiological and pathological respiratory responses are triggered by various conditions of exposure to cold climates. Beside airway smooth muscle, both the pulmonary and the tracheobronchial vasculatures are major effectors of respiratory responses to cold. General exposure to cold causes pulmonary vasoconstriction known as Raynauds phenomenon of the lung in subjects with primary Raynaud syndrome and favors acute pulmonary oedema in subjects with congestive heart failure. In healthy subjects acute hyperventilation of very cold air has led to acute respiratory failure closely similar to hypoxic pulmonary oedema. In outdoor exercising people years long repetition of hyperventilation of subfreezing air causes eskimo lung made of obstructive lung disease and increased wall thickness of pulmonary arteries. At a lesser degree hyperventilation of dry air cools the central airways and triggers subclinical bronchial obstruction in healthy subjects. In asthmatic subjects hyperventilation of dry air causes

Godecke Bleckens main research focus is on urban stormwater management. During his PhD studies until 2010, Godecke investigated the function and adaptation of stormwater bioretention to demanding climates. Since then he has broadened his work and also investigated other stormwater control measures such as permeable pavements, infiltration systems, ponds, constructed wetlands, done research on stormwater quality and the impact of stormwater discharges on the natural environment.. An important part of Godeckes research deals with the investigation of the function of stormwater control measures in demanding climates and their adaptation to these. A special focus here is on cold climates. Another main research topic is related to the long-term function of stormwater control measures and their maintenance needs. There is a clear risk that existing measures do not perform sufficiently e.g. due to a lack of maintenance. Further, Godecke works with evaluating ecosystem services of blue green ...

OK, I want to wear shoes made of a natural substance. What are my options? Not many. There is a reason that in cold climates people invented leather shoes. The stuff works. And there really isnt any good artificial substitute. Heck, there isnt any good natural substitute. Plant fibers are really, really poor shoes (though they are good insulators for them). But that is why none of the traditional societies I am familiar with that lives in temperate or cod climates uses them for shoes. Heck, not many people in tropical climates do. Artificial, non-leather shoes are made with polymers. Those are pretty devastating from an environmental perspective, and harm far more ...
Propagation is by division of the bulbous base with roots. After pulling apart sections, cut the leaves off and then plant in the garden or a pot. These cut leaves are good to be used as mulch. It is best to plant in spring, summer or early autumn, if propagated in winter the success rate can be quite low. Plant each 30cm apart. Using thick mulch around the plant means it will need very little attention once it has first been established.. It is best to plant lemongrass in well-drained soil with full or partial sun. In cold climates, lemongrass can be planted in a pot to bring inside in harsher weather. In very low temperatures it can help to spray the leaves of lemongrass with warm water.

Angelica keiskei is one of those plants that usually produce flowers in second year, but it might do it in its first, third or fourth year as well. Soon after the seeds are fuly developed, the plant dies. But you can keep it as perennial if you will cut off its flower buds before opening. It can also grow side shoots. It grows best in partial shade and rich, compost, moist, but well drained soil, but can also cope with full sun ( as long as temperature is not too high ) and more sandy soils. It can stand frost up to -15C, but it is going dormant in cold climate winters, that means that its leaves are dying, and new one are appearing from its root in spring. Its leafy part is usually no higher than 80cm, but flower stalk can reach over 1,5m. Leaves can be gathered at any time before it starts to turn yellow. But give it some time for small plants to get stronger before you start to pick their leaves and always leave few leaves on each plant, so it could catch some sun for further strong growth. ...
Viscosity affects heat generation in bearings, cylinders and gear sets related to an oils internal friction. It governs the sealing effect of oils and the rate of oil consumption, as well as determines the ease with which machines may be started or operated under varying temperature conditions, particularly in cold climates.. Viscosity is a measure of an oils resistance to flow. It decreases (thins) with increasing temperature and increases (or thickens) with decreased temperature. These conditions explain why an oil will flow much more easily in summer at a temperature of 25 degrees C (78 degrees F), than it will flow in winter at minus 25 degrees C (minus 13 degrees F).. An oils viscosity is measured most commonly by kinematic viscosity and reported in a unit called the centistoke (cSt). Kinematic viscosity is measured in the time it takes for a specific volume of oil to flow through a special device called a capillary tube.. Not all oils respond in the same way to a given change in ...
Clark Howell (1952) argues that the conditions of the periglacial areas had a marked effect on the morphology and morphology of the Neanderthals. distribution of Neanderthals.

Brose and Wolpoff, 1971: very wide nostril, with different ciliary mucosa and very voluminous sinus cavity to warm and moisten the air. Hein (1997) disagrees, noting that there are Neanderthals in hot and humid climates. Trinkaus (1981) agrees that the shape of the bones of the lower extremities expresses an adaptation to a cold climate, but remember that this trait can also be interpreted for biomechanical reasons (force at the expense of race speed). Neanderthals show a great wear of their incisors and canines due perhaps to their use as adjuvant or third hand in numerous tasks, such as the preparation of skins or the cutting of pieces of meat that they held with their ...

Freeze-drying procedure has been traced back to prehistory, when Eskimo preserved fish by dehydration in the cold Arctic winds. Ancient Peruvian Incas placed their potatoes and other crops above Machu Picchu where the temperature and atmospheric pressure are low. They placed their products in cold climates to freeze at night and then in the day it would evaporate. In medicine Altmann used freeze-drying for the preparation of histological sections as early as 1980. Shackell independently rediscovered the technique in 1909 for the preservation of biologicals as he realised that the material had to be frozen before commercing the drying process. The industrial applications of freeze-drying do not appear to have been appreciated prior to patients of Tival in 1927 ...

The pineapple spread throughout the world, and as an ornamental plant it can be found even in cold climates. Homeland of pineapple can be considered Brazil, as there is this plant still grows in the wild. At the moment spends about eight varieties of pineapple, which occur mainly in South America, Africa and Indonesia. The major producers of this fruit are the US (12%) and Thailand (11.5%).. The plant has a large number of roots, its trunk covered with scales, and the leaves are fleshy, stocking large amounts of moisture. The leaf edges are equipped with spines and covered with a thick layer of epidermis. It is in this layer of pineapple leaves kept the water.. The plant is propagated by selfing. The flowering period lasts about 20 days. At the end, in the center of the trunk formed a powerful stem ...
Environmental air pollution from factories, power plants and chemical plants gets a lot of press coverage these days, but some of the most offensive sources of indoor air pollution can be right in your own home in Coeur D Alene. This time of year, when most homeowners in cold climates keep windows and doors shut tight, there are even higher concentrations of indoor air pollutants that can affect the health of homeowners and their families.
Twenty species of oak (Quercus) are known from California. The white oak group is the most diverse, and includes a complex of scrub oak species that are often encountered in chaparral, mixed forest and desert margin habitats. The Protobalanus group (e.g., Quercus chrysolepis) is a unique and distinctive clade of western North American species that appears to be most closely related to the white oak group. Within the white oaks and red oaks (black oaks), the majority of California species do not have obvious, close relationships to species outside of the region. In addition, these species either have lobed leaves (e.g., Q. kelloggii, Q. lobata, Q. garryana) or have leaves that appear to be derived from ancestors with lobed leaves by reduction (e.g., Q. dumosa, Q. berberidifolia, Q. john-tuckeri, Q. cornelius-mulleri, Q. agrifolia). Lobed leaves, such as those found in numerous oaks of the eastern U.S., are characteristic of species from temperate or cold climates, but not any of the more tropical ...
STANFORD -- Modern archaeology tends to assume that ancient hunting-gathering societies either depleted their resources and moved on or, when their population outgrew the available food supply, developed new resources or agriculture. Stanford University archaeologist John Rick believes hes found an exception: a Stone Age people in South America who recognized and lived with the limitations of their environment, including managing their population. Rick studies the remains of pre-ceramic societies that lived in caves in Perus puna, the high-altitude grasslands of the Andes, from 10,000 B.C. to 2,000 B.C. Except for the earliest occupants, these hunters appear to have settled down in a relatively cold climate for thousands of years. "This culture really goes against the idea that population growth is a simple, driving force that leads people to settle down," Rick said. "More important, these people appear to have had a consciousness that population size had to be regulated in terms of the ...
Given good quality charcoal it must still be burned efficiently to produce the best results. This is specially true in domestic use where most charcoal is burned. Industrial furnaces for burning charcoal such as blast furnaces, cupolas, sintering furnaces and so on, are usually efficiently designed and operated. They will not be discussed here. The main use of charcoal in the households of the developing world is to heat water either to cook food or provide hot water for washing, etc. Some food is cooked by direct heating without immersion in water, such as when corn or meat is roasted. A cooking system would be 100% efficient if all the heat released by burning the fuel were taken up by food being cooked. In practice, this is far from the case, A typical result for well designed and operated equipment is an efficiency of around 30%, that is 70% of the heat escapes uselessly. In a cold climate, some of this waste heat may be captured and used to heat up the air of the room, thereby performing a ...
351) the same general form everywhere; every people has its laws, its commandments, its religion and superstitions, its marriage, its art, its property, etc. The paper on the Vakuts shows the effect of a very cold climate on social life, but we are struck mare by the resemblance of the culture of the Vakuts to that of Central Europe than by its difference. Their practices are harder, because life is harder, but they are not harder than the practices of the central European peasant, and in many respects strikingly resemble them,[5] This passage from Thomass Source Book is typical of the treatment of the physical and geographic factors in recent American sociological literature. This tendency is manifested in the following passages from Ellwood and Ross:. Every factor which has some degree of active influence in shaping and molding the forms of active association, the interactions of individuals is, then, a social force. While the preceding chapters have argued that the mind in all of its aspects ...

ISSN 1816-7950.. The full-scale single-stage tertiary nitrifying trickling filter (NTF) at the Citrusdal Wastewater Treatment Plant provides for external nitrification of unclarified effluent from the facultative aerobic lagoon in order to meet standard effluent ammonia concentration requirements. The apparent ammonia nitrification rate (ApANR, gN/m2 media surface·d) of the NTF was sensitive to particulate organic loading rates which were predominantly in the form of algae, and the soluble COD removal rates increased under cold climates. Installation of forced-air ventilation fans improved the nitrification efficiency from 15% to 43%. An increase in hydraulic loading rate (HLR) by effluent recirculation significantly improved the ApANR, eradicated filter flies and decreased the prevalence of worms. Maximum ...

the cold winter of 1978/1979 provided an opportunity for comparing effective bridge temperatures and temperature differences measured during these severe conditions with those predicted using methods developed at trrl. the month of january 1979 contained the lowest temperatures, and both the effective temperatures of the marlow-bisham bridge (concrete box) and the temperature differences measured through the depth of its deck during this month are presented in the report and compared with predictions. temperatures were also measured in the three elevated concrete slabs and two steel plates situated within the trrl grounds. the levels of temperature reached during january 1979 are some of the lowest recorded at this site since measurements started there in 1970. because of the sizes of the slabs and plates and their proximity to the ground, their temperatures are not strictly representative of bridge temperatures, but they provide useful supplementary information on the thermal behaviour of ...

Bogies thrive in full sun so put it in a location to receive as much light as possible. They are frost tender so be sure to get it indoors if frost is predicted.

(Do the reverse in spring.) Dont overwater or overfertilize--they actually thrive on neglect. Wait until the soil dries out and then water slowly and deeply to ensure the rootball gets wet. Fertilize once a month in winter with a product with a higher phosphorus content than nitrogen to promote bloom, e.g., 5-10-5. You can probably fertilize twice a month during active growth periods.
