  • In this paper, the authors demonstrate that a new mixing rule allows cubic equations of state to be used for a broad range of nonideal mixtures which previously could only be described by activity coefficient models. Further, the authors show that there is no need to recorrelate phase equilibrium data to do this; activity coefficient model parameters currently reported, for example in the DECHEMA Data Series, can be used directly in our model. Perhaps most important is that the authors also find that the authors can use the parameters in our model obtained from one low pressure-low temperature isotherm tomore » make accurate predictions at conditions which are hundreds of degrees and hundreds of bars above the experimental data used to obtain those parameters. Consequently, this new model provides a way of being able, with confidence, to use data for nonideal mixtures obtained at moderate laboratory conditions for design at harsh processing conditions.« less
  • Air–water interfacial monolayers of poly((d,l-lactic acid-ran-glycolic acid)-block-ethylene glycol) (PLGA–PEG) exhibit an exponential increase in surface pressure under high monolayer compression. In order to understand the molecular origin of this behavior, a combined experimental and theoretical investigation (including surface pressure–area isotherm, X-ray reflectivity (XR) and interfacial rheological measurements, and a self-consistent field (SCF) theoretical analysis) was performed on air–water monolayers formed by a PLGA–PEG diblock copolymer and also by a nonglassy analogue of this diblock copolymer, poly((d,l-lactic acid-ran-glycolic acid-ran-caprolactone)-block-ethylene glycol) (PLGACL–PEG). The combined results of this study show that the two mechanisms, i.e., the glass transition of the collapsed PLGA filmmore » and the lateral repulsion of the PEG brush chains that occur simultaneously under lateral compression of the monolayer, are both responsible for the observed PLGA–PEG isotherm behavior. Upon cessation of compression, the high surface pressure of the PLGA–PEG monolayer typically relaxes over time with a stretched exponential decay, suggesting that in this diblock copolymer situation, the hydrophobic domain formed by the PLGA blocks undergoes glass transition in the high lateral compression state, analogously to the PLGA homopolymer monolayer. In the high PEG grafting density regime, the contribution of the PEG brush chains to the high monolayer surface pressure is significantly lower than what is predicted by the SCF model because of the many-body attraction among PEG segments (referred to in the literature as the “n-cluster” effects). The end-grafted PEG chains were found to be protein resistant even under the influence of the “n-cluster” effects.« less
  • Comprehensive surface - based retrievals of cloud optical and microphysical properties were made at Taihu, a highly polluted site in central Yangtze Delta region, during a research campaign from May 2008 to December 2009. C loud optical depth (COD) , effective radius (R e ) and liquid water path (LWP) were retrieved from measurements made with a suite of ground - based and space - borne instruments, including an Analytical Spectral Devices (ASD) spectroradiometer , a Multi - Filter Rotating Shadowband R adiometer (MFRSR) , a Multichannel Microwave Radiometer Profiler (MWRP), and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer ( MODIS) onmore » Terra and Aqua satellites . Retrievals from zenith radiance measurements capture better the temporal variation of cloud properties than do retrievals from hemispherical fluxes . Annual mean LWP, COD and R e are 115.8 ± 90.8 g/m 2 , 28.5 ± 19.2, and 6.9 ± 4.2 μ m . Over 90% of LWP is less than 250 g/m 2 . Most of COD (>90%) fall s between 5 and 60 and ~ 80% of R e is less than 10 μ m . Maximum ( minimum ) values of LWP and R e occur in summer ( winter ); COD is highest in winter and spring. R aining and non - raining clouds have significant difference s in LWP, COD and R e . R ainfall frequency i s best correlated with LWP, followed by COD and R e . Cloud properties retrieved from multiple ground - based instruments are also compared with those from satellite retrievals. On average, relative to surface retrievals, mean differences of satellite retrievals in cloud LWP, COD and R e were - 33.6 g/m 2 ( - 26.4%), - 5.8 ( - 31.4%), and 2.9 μ m (29.3% ) for 11 MODIS - Terra overpasses , and - 43.3 g/m 2 ( - 2 2.3 %), - 3.0 ( - 10.0 %) and - 1.3 μ m ( - 12.0 %) for 8 MODIS - Aqua 40 overpasses, respectively. These discrep ancies indicate that MODIS cloud products still suffer 41 from large uncertainties in this region« less
  • The relationship between cloud optical properties and the radiative fluxes over the Arctic Ocean is explored by conducting a series of modeling experiments. The annual cycle of arctic cloud optical properties that are required to reproduce both the outgoing radiative fluxes at the top of the atmosphere as determined from satellite observations and the available determinations of surface radiative fluxes are derived. Existing data on cloud fraction and cloud microphysical properties are utilized. Four types of cloud are considered: low stratus clouds, midlevel clouds, citrus clouds, and wintertime ice crystal precipitation. Internally consistent annual cycles of surface temperature, surface albedo,more » cloud fraction and cloud optical properties, components of surface and top of atmosphere radiative fluxes, and cloud radiative forcing are presented. The modeled total cloud optical depth (weighted by cloud fraction) ranges from a low value in winter of 2 to a high summertime value of 8. Infrared emmissivities for liquid water clouds are shown to be substantially less than unity during the cold half of the year. Values of modeled surface cloud radiative forcing are positive except for two weeks in midsummer; over the course of the year clouds have a net warming effect on the surface in the Arctic. Total cloud radiative forcing at the top of the atmosphere is determined to be positive only briefly in early autumn. Surface longwave fluxes are shown to be very sensitive to the presence of lower-tropospheric ice crystal precipitation during the cold half of the year.« less
