Multiple constraints on grassland evapotranspiration: implications for closing the energy balance.

When using the eddy covariance (EC) method for measuring the ecosystem-atmosphere exchange of sensible and latent heat, it is not uncommon to find tha...

Satellite-based analysis of evapotranspiration and water balance in the grassland ecosystems of Dryland East Asia.
The regression tree method is used to upscale evapotranspiration (ET) measurements at eddy-covariance (EC) towers to the grassland ecosystems over the Dryland East Asia (DEA). The regression tree model was driven by satellite and meteorology datasets

Can an energy balance model provide additional constraints on how to close the energy imbalance?
Elucidating the causes for the energy imbalance, i.e. the phenomenon that eddy covariance latent and sensible heat fluxes fall short of available energy, is an outstanding problem in micrometeorology. This paper tests the hypothesis that the full ene

Impaired standing balance: the clinical need for closing the loop.
Impaired balance may limit mobility and daily activities, and plays a key role in the elderly falling. Maintaining balance requires a concerted action of the sensory, nervous and motor systems, whereby cause and effect mutually affect each other with

Neuroendocrine regulation of energy balance: Implications on the development and surgical treatment of obesity.
Obesity, a serious public health problem, occurs mainly when food consumption exceeds energy expenditure. Therefore, energy balance depends on the regulation of the hunger-satiety mechanism, which involves interconnection of the central nervous syste

The water balance of grassland ecosystems in the Austrian Alps.
The altitudinal variation of precipitation, evapotranspiration and runoff was quantified at 16 different grassland sites between 580 and 2550 m a.s.l. in the Austrian Alps. Along this altitudinal transect annual evapotranspiration decreased from roug

Environment-physiology, diet quality and energy balance: the influence of early life nutrition on future energy balance.
Diseases caused by impaired regulation of energy balance, in particular obesity, represent a major global health burden. Although polymorphisms, lifestyle and dietary choices have been associated with differential risk of obesity and related conditio

Investigation of climate change impact on water resources for an Alpine basin in northern Italy: implications for evapotranspiration modeling complexity.
Assessing the future effects of climate change on water availability requires an understanding of how precipitation and evapotranspiration rates will respond to changes in atmospheric forcing. Use of simplified hydrological models is required because

Closing the net on retroviruses.
Structural studies reveal how an antiviral factor forms a molecular net to restrict retroviruses including HIV-1.
