  • The authors study the behavior of a Frisch-Hasslacher-Pomeau lattice gas automation under the effect of a spatially periodic forcing. It is shown that the lattice gas dynamics reproduces the steady-state features of the bifurcation pattern predicted by a properly truncated model of the Navier-Stokes equations. In addition, they show that the dynamical evolution of the instabilities driving the bifurcation can be modeled by supplementing the truncated Navier-Stokes equation with a random force chosen on the basis of the automation noise.
  • We address possible sampling biases reported in an earlier work (Bahadur et al., 2011) relating decreases in black carbon (BC) measurements from the IMPROVE monitoring network to diesel emissions in California. A decrease in average BC concentration of between 40 and 60% is found at each site between 1988 and 2007, consistent with the statewide average of SO%. No significant regional biases are found to drive these trends, which are independent of latitude as well as mean BC concentration. We find no reason to revise the conclusions of Bahadur et al, in response to the methodological issues raised by Schichtelmore » et al.« less
  • We examine the temporal and the spatial trends in the concentrations of black carbon (BC) - recorded by the IMPROVE monitoring network for the past 20 years - in California. Annual average BC concentrations in California have decreased by about 50% from 0.46 11g m-3 in 1989 to 0.24 11 gm-3 in 2008 compared to the corresponding reductions in diesel BC emissions (also about 50%) from a peak of 0.013 Tg Yr -1 in 1990 to 0.006 Tg Tr -1 by 2008. We attribute the observed negative trends to the reduction in vehicular emissions due to stringent statewide regulations. Ourmore » conclusion that the reduction in diesel emissions is a primary cause of the observed BC reduction is also substantiated by a significant decrease in the ratio of BC to non-BC aerosols. The absorption efficiency of aerosols at visible wavelengths - determined from the observed scattering coefficient and the observed BC - also decreased by about 50% leading to a model-inferred negative direct radiative forcing (a cooling effect) of -1.4 w m-2 (±60%) over California.« less
  • Public interest grew during the 1970s in regulating forest environments and forest products, focusing on the question of regulating private landowners. A review of existing forest-practice laws inspects their legality and history, identifies criteria that can be used to evaluate state forest practice laws, and identifies desirable as well as undesirable provisions of such laws in light of the reviews, summaries, and criteria so identified. A case study of Minnesota uses the summaries and criteria as well as the opinions of Minnesota natural-resource leaders to select provisions that might be appropriate if the state should enact forest-practice regulations. Minnesota natural-resourcemore » leaders expressed their opinions in personal interviews using a short-answer questionnaire. 40 references, 3 tables.« less
