A unified view of tropical cyclogenesis and intensification
Idealized high-resolution numerical simulations of tropical cyclogenesis are presented in a model that represents deep convection by a warm rain process only. Starting with an initially weak, cloud-free, axisymmetric ...
Evidence for an isovector octupole resonance at 28.4 MeV and other Giant Resonances in 238U
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976)
The deformed, fissionable nucleus 238U was studied with inelastic scattering of 87.5 MeV electrons between 5 and 40 MeV excitation energy, at scattering angles of 45°, 60° 75° and 90°. Resonance cross sections extracted ...
Some solved and more unsolved problems in giant resonance research
(Monterey, California; Naval Postgraduate School, 1978)
A review of the main existing (e,e') data on the giant resonance region of atomic nuclei is given Open and controversial questions are pointed out. While most of the examples are taken from the Monterey data, which in ...
Coercive Nuclear Campaigns in the 21st Century; Understanding Adversary Incentives and Options for Nuclear Escalation
(Georgetown University, 2013-01)
"This report examines why and how regional powers armed with nuclear weapons may employ those weapons coercively against the United States or U.S. allies during a conventional war. We argue that the problem of intra-Ââ€ ...
