where k(2[theta]) defines the instrument profile and considers the imperfect optics of the diffractometer; f(2[theta]) is the specimen profile, which (apart from strain effects which are not covered here) characterizes the size broadening due to microstructural properties of the specimen (i.e., crystallite shape, distribution and dimensions); b(2[theta]) and n(2[theta]) are the background level and the noise distribution, respectively.
Since the alert levels went up "rates of inflation and seismicity have waxed and waned, but have remained above what we consider to be long-term background levels," the USGS said.
The number of pulses, he added, seems to surge about two weeks before the earthquake then drop back to background level until shortly before the fault slips.
Depending on the background levels of methane in a given area, the instrument can respond to levels of methane as low as one part per million or less.
This background level is higher than our overall epitope mapping average (average of ~3% over ~20 proteins tested; data not shown).
Jones works under a mountain, where a low background level of neutrons makes these particles easier to detect.
Yet the researchers also measured a radiation "spike"--about 20 to 30 times above the background level -- in snow near the top of the pit, deposited during late 1987 and early 1988.
According to Dr Stefan Rahmstorf, of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, ""There is a very close and statistically highly significant correlation between the rate of sea level rise and the temperature increase above the pre-industrial background level."
In earlier studies, the low but measurable background level of acrolein--dG adducts in both rodent and human tissues were attributed to endogenous lipid peroxidation (21,44).
Ryan of Health and Welfare Canada in Ottawa report that one of these workers still carries TCDD levels of 141 parts per trillion (ppt) in his fat -- 10 to 20 times the general population's background level. "If we calculate back, using a five-and-a-half-year half-life, he must have had 12,000 ppt TCDD contamination at the time of the initial exposure," Schecter says.
Labeling of zona glomerulosa and the adrenal medulla did not exceed the background level The radioactivity in these sections remained too weak to be semiquantified by phosphorautoradiography using 14 days exposure.
