The rest of the area with WN virus activity both in 1999 and 2000--the Bronx, the two counties immediately north of NYC (Westchester and Rockland), and the two counties to the east (Nassau and Suffolk)--did not have human WN virus cases in 2000, and the weekly dead crow densities never exceeded 1.
The various improvements offered by MR technology amount to an ability to read from areal densities about four times denser than TFI heads at higher flying heights.
This is called the "superparamagnetic effect," and has long been predicted to appear when densities reached 20 to 40 billion bits (gigabits) per square inch, which is near the data density of current products.
Given the horizontal transmission of hantavirus within reservoir populations, increasing population densities should result in increased rodent-to-rodent contact, opportunities for virus transmission (to susceptible mice), and overall incidence and cumulative prevalence of infection within host populations.
The fine grain particles are complemented with a new binder composition that enables an extremely thin magnetic layer, allowing shorter wavelength and higher bit densities and data rates.
At that point, the sponge cell walls are ruptured, allowing gas to escape, yielding poor skin surface and higher densities.
The Spansion 1 Gb MirrorBit product joins the Spansion GL family which includes densities ranging from 16 Mb up to 512 Mb - all in production today.
Metal particle media offered twice the coercivity and twice the remnant flux density of alternative media pigments, producing the potential for significantly higher recording densities compared to quarter-inch or half-inch cartridge formats.
Densities initially hovered in the lower 40 percent of those seen in women the researchers had studied previously, indicating a high risk of eventual fractures.
The elastomeric alloy foam has superior mechanical strength when these low densities are achieved.
The TeraScale E-Series combines an innovative architecture with the industry's highest densities to bring Vonage a high level of investment protection and ensure smooth network expansion well into the future.
By increasing the areal density--or the amount of information that can be placed within a given area on a disc drive--technologists in fact have been able to deliver densities in excess of 100 percent annually over the course of the last several years.
