Gradient

The slope,or change in elevation,of land or improvements such as a pipe or a road.It is expressed as the ratio of inches (or feet) of rise or fall over a specified distance. It is similar to the concept of pitch in roofing.Figure A (above) has a gradient of 1:12 because the grade increases by 1 foot over a distance of 12 feet. Figure B has a gradient of 1:6.

However, [V.sub.zz,c] are the vertical components of gravity gradient tensors in Gradiometer Reference Frame (GRF) and not the radial gravity gradients, hence the coordinate transformation is needed.
In the production of the hydraulic gradients 15, 66, 85 and 140, pressures of 1.8, 7.92, 10.2 and 16.8 m of water column (m[H.sub.2]O), respectively, were applied by a compressed air system on the storage interfaces (Figure 1c).
The optimization is finally carri ed out by maximal matching the gradient distribution of estimate to that of a prior face image.

There was a significant gradient between radial and femoral mean arterial pressure measurements in only 4% of the mean arterial pressure measurements, and these significant gradients were not sustained10.
Several illustrative cases are presented in section 2 that examine the behaviour of a vehicle with its front and rear contact patches on roads of different gradients. These cases are used to develop a set of geometrical relations for a general problem containing two road gradients.
Each gradient was subjected to a one-sample t-test to determine whether gradient shift occurred (i.e., the means of the gradients were compared against a criterion value of 4, the numerical value assigned to S+).
Pre-formulated buffers for pH gradient have greatly simplified the development of ion exchange chromatography (IEX) of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs).
Gradients are often due to unwanted light sources such as light pollution, but there are many natural light sources that will introduce gradients to your deep-sky images, including the zodiacal light, aurorae, and even natural airglow.
