The impact of assimilation of satellite derived wind observations for the prediction of a monsoon depression over India using a mesoscale model
The Penn State/NCAR mesoscale model (MM5) has been used in this study to ingest and assimilate the INSAT-CMV (Indian National Satellite System-Cloud Motion Vector) wind observations using analysis nudging (four-dimensional ...
First Confirmed Detection of a Bipolar Molecular Outflow from a Young Brown Dwarf
Studying the earliest stages in the birth of stars is crucial for understanding how they form. Brown dwarfs with masses between that of stars and planets are not massive enough to maintain stable hydrogen-burning fusion ...
Cross-spectral properties of a spatial point-lattice process
This paper shows how spectral analysis can be used to study a hybrid process involving a spatial point process and a lattice process. Asymptotic distributions of spectral statistics for such processes are derived.
The new gold rush : The new multinationals and the commodification of public service work
This article describes the growth of the new 'public services industry' and outlines the way in which government-provided services can be transformed into commodities and opened up as new fields of activity for private ...
A new sample of extremely/ultra metal-poor stars
A sample of 30 very metal-poor stars from the Hamburg-European Southern Observatory (ESO) objective-prism survey have been observed at high spectral resolution at the Very Large Telescope (VLT) using the Ultraviolet and ...
Discovery of Hot Gas in Outflow in NGC 3379
We report the discovery of a faint (LX~4+/-1.5×1037 ergs s-1, 0.5-2 keV), outflowing gaseous hot interstellar medium (ISM) in NGC 3379. This represents the lowest X-ray luminosity ever measured from a hot phase of the ISM ...
