The phase difference [[delta].sub.p], confined as it is to the factor [z'.sub.p], which, like [z.sub.p], is of order unity, cannot alter the order of magnitude
estimates for [a.sub.p], [~.a.sub.p], and [b.sub.p] of the previous paragraph.
The case-control studies of childhood cancer and fetal X-ray exposure are important because they demonstrate an excess risk associated with doses near 10 mSv, doses an order of magnitude
below those received in other epidemiologic studies showing an excess risk of cancer following irradiation (UNSCEAR 2000).
Nortel Networks (NYSE:NT)(TSE:NT.) has introduced the Alteon Switched Firewall (ASF) System, which will enable customers to secure their networks with greater ease and performance, as well as increase data throughput by an order of magnitude
over current firewall systems.
These progressions in technology offer higher bit density, a far greater surface area than other storage mediums, and, more importantly, an increase in order of magnitude
in track density.
Without that isotope, virtually all existing PET scanners will be an order of magnitude
more difficult to use," Welch contends.
The application note points out that the uncertainty in the calibration of power meters can be reduced by one order of magnitude
when the technique is used to correct for source and power meter mismatches.
They affect water quality by destroying vegetation and dead plant matter that slows stormwater runoff; runoff and erosion can increase by an order of magnitude
after a wildfire.
"Our data show that acidity fluxes in regions of the tropics are of the same order of magnitude
certainly as those we get in the eastern United States," says Andreae.
The dating of important minerals and geologic materials depends upon accurate determinations of potassium (K) and argon (Ar) isotopic ratios, but significant interlaboratory disagreements (1 % to 2 %) exceed intra-laboratory uncertainties by an order of magnitude
, hampering comparability of results.
This sequence may signal that stress in the Cucamonga has reached a point where it could soon generate a large earthquake, on the order of magnitude
6.5 to 7.2, which would likely wreak major damage in this developing region.
First, the zero-shear-rate viscosity of SRM 2491 at 25 [degrees]C is approximately one order of magnitude
greater than the zero-shear-rate viscosity of SRM 2490.
It currently spends about $500 million annually, he said, on research into climate change and greenhouse-warming mitigation -- "more than an order of magnitude
more than any other nation."
