Better description of plume dispersion pattern is given by the [greater than or equal to] 0.001 mSv dose limit.
Further dispersion pattern of parasitoid eggs on different host densities were estimated by the Green index.
This dispersion pattern is similar to nickel and chromium patterns that is occurrence in ultramafic rocks.
The Inflated Heelsplitter, Potamilus inflatus, has densities and a distribution similar to most unionid mussels in the Amite River and a clumped dispersion pattern common in unionids (Vaughn, 1997).
If all factors are equal the shaft flex characteristics are as follows: A stiff-flex shaft will have a lower launch angle, go a shorter distance and have a straighter shot dispersion pattern. A regular-flex shaft will have a higher launch angle, go a longer distance and have a wider shot dispersion pattern.* Physical limitations -- Do you have any injuries that keep you from swinging the club through a full arc?
Atmospheric dispersion models use monitored emission data along with information on local topographic and meteorological conditions, within a Gaussian framework, to estimate the concentration and dispersion pattern of pollutants around an identified source 31, 32].
With detailed analysis of the dispersion pattern of a ground source it was found that the often questionable [Sc.sub.t] value for this case is the optimal value of 0.7 as defined for academic Fluid Dynamics test cases.
Conversely, while many low-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas typically display a loosely cohesive to single-cell dispersion pattern on aspiration specimens, some low-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas can demonstrate large cellular clusters as well.
Sharing with its PoweredForce[TM] counterpart Ethos, the 9.2-inch wide by 44-inch tall XStat electrostatic transducer addresses the specific mechanical engineering requirements necessary for this unique electrostatic panel design to achieve MartinLogan's distinct 30-degree controlled dispersion pattern. To accomplish this MartinLogan engineers reduced the gauge thickness of Theos's steel stators, which not only achieves the desired arc, but also drastically increases the visual transparency of the panel.
Thus, it is fundamental to know the dynamic distribution of this invading species to explain its invading process and to have access to basic information to predict its distribution/ dispersion pattern.
The difference between it and hanging the Micro on a nail in the wall is the dispersion pattern. Since I had everything on a shelf, the TV top, or stand, I didn't test the differences in the Micro's response to ceiling or wall mounting.
