Particle-Lung Interactions

This wide-ranging, accomplished reference offers the newest advancements in aerosol technological know-how and interactions among debris and the breathing tract-utilizing an inter-disciplinary strategy that integrates advances in physics, chemistry, and engineering with the epidemiological and biomedical sciences, and concentrating on the dynamics of particle deposition, retention, and clearance.

The Biology and Technology of Intelligent Autonomous Agents

The NATO subsidized complicated research Institute 'The Biology and Tech­ nology of clever self sufficient brokers' was once a rare occasion. for 2 weeks it introduced jointly the prime proponents of the hot habit­ orientated method of man made Intelligence in Castel Ivano close to Trento. The objective of the assembly used to be to set up a superior clinical and technological foun­ dation for the sphere of clever self sufficient brokers with a bias in the direction of the hot methodologies and methods that experience lately been constructed in Ar­ tificial Intelligence lower than the robust effect of biology.

Sample text

T h u s , the correlation a n d chronological dating of formations in the t w o basins b e l o w the N o r t h ­ u m b e r l a n d - L a m b e r t zone are subject t o m o r e than o n e interpretation. Earlier investigators of the N a n a i m o group h a v e not a t t e m p t e d t o corre­ late the formations in the N a n a i m o basin with those in the C o m o x basin 35 on the basis of faunal c o n t e n t and faunal succession, but, instead, founded their correlation entirely on the lithology of the rocks and the sedimentary sequences.

T h e most that can be said is that the sediments are either littoral, shallow water neritic, or d e e p water neritic. T h e littoral sediments contain thick-shelled pelecy­ p o d s and gastropods and c o m m o n l y large quantities of broken shells; the shallow water, neritic sediments contain more fragile t y p e s of pelecypods and gastropods, with occasional a m m o n i t e s ; the deep water facies contain a m m o n i t e s of numerous shapes and ornaments, a few large pelecypods, and in several instances m a n y tiny gastropods and p e l e c y p o d s .

Large, b r o w n weathering, calcareous, sandstone concretions protrude from the cliffs. Layers, lenses, and irregular patches of granules, pebbles, and c o b b l e s are c o m m o n in the sandstones, and increase in n u m b e r and thick­ ness u p w a r d to where they finally surpass the sandstones in quantity. T h e middle m e m b e r consists of subrounded t o rounded, pebble-, c o b b l e - , and even boulder-conglomerates. Fragments of quartz, chert, trap, porphyries, granite, sandstone, shale, c o n g l o m e r a t e , and, rarely, calcareous concretions, in a matrix of fine- t o medium-grained, impure, greenish grey, quartz sand form the constituents of these beds.
