developed a novel concept of aerosol drug delivery that provides a submicrometer aerosol to one nostril at slightly subsaturated conditions and delivered a humidified airstream saturated with water vapor to the other nostril using a nose, mouth, and throat model during NIV.
Furthermore, the addition of soluble material onto dust particles increases the water uptake at subsaturated conditions with respect to liquid water (Hatch et al.
[8] argued that shear above cloud top in a thermodynamically stable atmosphere can form a dynamically unstable layer and, thereby, turbulence and risk of Kelvin-Helmholtz waves as well as entrainment of subsaturated air and mixing, which favour SLD formation.
Wakimoto 2001 [10], in his treatment of convective outflows, describes these downdrafts as typically subsaturated owing to the effects of the flow warming adiabatically as it descends, while Srivastava 1984 [11] theorizes that the intensification of the downdraft is accomplished when there is more moisture in the lower atmosphere as the parcel of air subsides.
It contains a biologically active agent selected from the group consisting of terbinafine, naftifine, amorolfine, butenafine, derivatives thereof, salts thereof, or combinations thereof; a delivery vehicle comprising a non-polymeric crystallization inhibitor that is capable of delaying crystallization of the biologically active agent, and a film-former; a volatile solvent in an amount selected to create a subsaturated solution of said biologically active agent; and water.
Saturation indices of baryte, witherite, and calcite versus the characteristic coefficient [Na.sup.+] + [Cl.sup.-]/HC[O.sup.-.sub.3] like the groundwater metamorphism degree (GMD) also demonstrate that by the decrease in the GMD only witherite is left in the subsaturated state and is able to produce barium into water (Fig.

Line [F.sub.o] [F.sub.T] (well within the subsaturated, no-precipitation region of the Psychrometric chart) versus Line [F.sub.o] [F.sub.x] (well within the supersaturated, airborne ice-crystal region of the chart) is the engineering matter to note: Line [F.sub.o] [F.sub.x] represents the snow-making process of Figure 5 while Line [F.sub.o] [F.sub.T] represents the ideal coil-icing condition to which the system had finally been returned.

"In urban areas, anywhere from thirty to forty percent of the rainfall runs right into whatever stream is in the area, and in heavily urbanized areas it can be more than fifty percent," he explains (by comparison, he says, the amount of runoff in subsaturated woodlands is often less than 5%).
Gypsum SI ranges between -1.47 and -0.014, indicating that groundwater is subsaturated with respect to this evaporite mineral.
