The eighteen experiments included black and white and color photography, live mice, radiation phenomena, reentry physics including transpirational cooling, electromagnetic propagation and fuel cell prototypes.
We found that the transpirational cooling by vegetation can reduce air temperatures inside an urban street canyon and in particular at the pedestrian level (2 m above ground).
Figure 5a elucidates the temperature evolution trend of all nanocomposites collectively that exhibits a low temperature elevation rate up to 80s due to the effective transpirational, vaporizational, and reradiational cooling effects generated within the ablator during ablation test.
Transpirational efficiency is also expected to increase (Alston 1976; Norton and Wachsmann 2006; Sadras and Angus 2006).
Even when there is no transpirational water loss, the roots continue to absorb water and to accumulate ions in the xylem.
For example, stomatal closure is one of the first adaptive responses plants display to increasing water stress, in an attempt to reduce leaf transpirational losses and prevent development of lethal water deficits in their tissues (Kramer and Boyer, 1995).
The ratio of shoot and root dry weight was devised as a parameter indicating balance between the transpirational and the water absorbing areas of seedlings.
1994) and low transpirational flux rates (Comstock and Ehleringer 1992).
Li's analyses of these gems of short fiction illustrate well the veracity of Li's claim that, "while Louie's transpirational narrative strategy and Hwang's transvestic theater are capable of bringing Asian American characters to the threshold of visibility, these figures of artistic performance reveal far more about the threat of Asian American derealization in the representational democracy of the United States" (p.
Transpirational pull is the main process controlling the movement of water and nutrients from the roots to the leaves.
Transpirational demands from cover crops coincided with high precipitation events, explaining why %VSWC in cover-crop treatments were never lower than the control.
