Numerical Simulation of Magnetic Flux Emerging Through a Model Solar Atmosphere: Density, Magnetic F
This animation is one of a series depicting the results of a two-dimensional ideal magneto-hydrodynamic simulation of magnetic flux emerging through a solar atmosphere. The simulation has a resolution of 300x500 cells and a length scale of 16 Mm x 6.8 Mm. The simulation depicts 1730 seconds in the evolution of the model.

Water and Sanitation Needs in Complex Humanitarian Emergencies
Presents a historical overview of the influence of water and sanitation on human health; types of water and sanitation facilities and equipment presently available and particularly suited to refugee populations displaced by war, famine, drought, and economic turmoil; and methodologies for assessing and quantifying water and sanitation needs.
Tropical Environmental Health
Inadequate water supplies and lack of sanitation facilities represent major hazards to the public health in many parts of the world. In spite of the International Water Supply Decade, (1980-1990) there are more people without facilities approaching minimum standards now than existed at the beginning of the program. Without improvements in these areas, there can be no hope that there will be an overall improvement in the health of the nations which constitute the Third World. Yet appropriate tech
Global Tobacco Control
Provides an introduction to global tobacco control. Presents the health and economic burden of tobacco use worldwide and highlights practical approaches to tobacco prevention, control, surveillance, and evaluation. Examines transnational tobacco control issues, including the following: the interpretation and packaging of epidemiologic evidence for policy makers, the determinants of tobacco addiction, the economics of global tobacco control, tobacco industry strategies, legal foundations for regu
Examines health issues, scientific understanding of causes, and possible future approaches to control of the major environmental health problems in industrialized and developing countries. Topics include how the body reacts to environmental pollutants; physical, chemical, and biological agents of environmental contamination; vectors for dissemination (air, water, soil); solid and hazardous waste; susceptible populations; biomarkers and risk analysis; the scientific basis for policy decisions; an
Confronting the Burden of Injuries: A Global Perspective
Confronting the Burden of Injuries- A Global Perspective is a course offered by the Department of International Health and the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University. This course is intended to guide students interested in working on injury control in areas with little to no tradition in injury prevention from a public health perspective. Students will learn to define the injury problem and assess its magnitude; identify data
Adolescent Health and Development
The course consists of lectures, readings, discussions, panels of guest speakers, group and individual projects. The purpose of the lectures, readings, discussion and panels of guest speakers is to explore a variety of aspects of adolescence and adolescent health. The group and individual projects are meant to help students develop skills to work in multi-disciplinary teams and analyze adolescent health concerns through conceptual frameworks and recommend effective solutions through intervention
Problem Solving for Immunization Programs
Countries around the world - even those at war - are collaborating to ensure that children under the age of five don't die from diseases for which vaccines are available. In the past twenty years, global vaccine coverage has surpassed eighty percent, and a second disease, polio, is nearly eradicated. In the United States, coverage rates are even higher, and vaccine-preventable diseases are now rare. Never have so many resources been focused on immunization - yet problems remain. Additional, high
Cognitive Robotics, Spring 2004
Algorithms and paradigms for developing embedded systems that are able to operate autonomously for years at a time within harsh and uncertain environments. Focus on systems that demonstrate high levels of deduction and adaptation. Draws upon a diverse set of computational methods from artificial intelligence, operations research, software engineering, and control. Topics include: real-time deduction and search, automated planning, scheduling and execution, model-based diagnosis and failure recov
