Mummified Arctic Forest Provides Clues of Dramatic Climate Change
No trees grow on windswept Ellesmere Island in the northernmost reaches of Canada. But Ohio State University researchers have just discovered signs that things were different millions of years ago in the mummified remains of a forest uprooted in an avalanche. Melting snow cascading off the side of a glacier uncovered broken tree trunks, branches, and even leaves perfectly preserved with their DNA intact. These remains constitute the northernmost mummified plant material ever found in the Canadia

2.6 A gene ‘for’ obesity?

So far we have mostly emphasized the way in which different environmental factors may affect body weight and provide a partial explanation of both individual cases of obesity and the increase in average body weight that has been so clearly documented in both North America and Western Europe during the last two decades.

5.7.1 Mixed oxidant gases system

This is a relatively new system of disinfection. It involves electrolysis of high-purity NaCl brine to produce a mixture of chlorine dioxide, ozone and hypochlorite. This mixture is separated within the electrochemical cell by a membrane, or by exploiting density difference, and is then metered into the water requiring disinfection. The mixed oxidant gases are generated on demand and this is a great safety advantage, compared with having storage tanks of chlorine on site. The source for the d
