Anomalous uplift and subsidence of the Ontong Java Plateau inferred from CO2 contents of submarine basaltic glasses

The Ontong Java Plateau in the western Pacific is anomalous compared to other oceanic large igneous provinces in that it appears to have never formed a large subaerial plateau. Paleoeruption depths (at 122 Ma) estimated from dissolved H2O and CO2… Read moreAnomalous uplift and subsidence of the Ontong Java Plateau inferred from CO2 contents of submarine basaltic glasses

Application of video glasses for sustained affective picture presentations: A comparison with video projector presentations

Video glasses have previously been reported to be an effective instrument for emotion induction or for reducing pain perception. In the present study, we assessed the application of video glasses within the affective picture viewing paradigm. Possible advantages of this… Read moreApplication of video glasses for sustained affective picture presentations: A comparison with video projector presentations

Evaporative differentiation of impact-produced melts: Laser-simulation experiments and comparison with impact glasses from the Logoisk crater

Evaporative modification of silicates during impacts by large meteorites is the result of high-temperature processing of colliding silicate materials. There are still unresolved questions about the influence of vaporization on the chemical compositions of impact glasses. Here we present the… Read moreEvaporative differentiation of impact-produced melts: Laser-simulation experiments and comparison with impact glasses from the Logoisk crater

Randomised clinical trial of the effectiveness of base-in prism reading glasses versus placebo reading glasses for symptomatic convergence insufficiency in children

Purpose: To compare base-in prism reading glasses with placebo reading glasses for the treatment of symptomatic convergence insufficiency (CI) in children aged 9 to <18 years. Methods: In a randomised clinical trial, 72 children aged 9 to <18 years with… Read moreRandomised clinical trial of the effectiveness of base-in prism reading glasses versus placebo reading glasses for symptomatic convergence insufficiency in children

Structure and the extent of disorder in quaternary (Ca-Mg and Ca-Na) aluminosilicate glasses and melts

The structure of multi-component silicate melts and glasses (e.g., Ca-Mg and Ca-Na aluminosilicates) can provide insight into the properties of natural silicate melts and has implications for relevant magmatic processes. In spite of its importance, the atomic and molecular structure… Read moreStructure and the extent of disorder in quaternary (Ca-Mg and Ca-Na) aluminosilicate glasses and melts

The effect of fictive temperature on Al coordination in high-pressure (10 GPa) sodium aluminosilicate glasses

Typical liquidus temperatures can be over 1000 °C greater than the glass transition temperatures for high-pressure aluminosilicate melts so the effect of temperature must be determined if glass data is to be used to approximate the structural speciation present in… Read moreThe effect of fictive temperature on Al coordination in high-pressure (10 GPa) sodium aluminosilicate glasses

Quantification of Anion and Cation Release from a Range of Ternary Phosphate-based Glasses with Fixed 45 mol% P2O5

This article reports on the use of ion chromatography (IC) to investigate extensively the release profiles of both cations and anions and characterize the relationship between composition and degradation for a ternary-based Na2O-CaO-P2O5 glass system developed as biomaterials. Studies are… Read moreQuantification of Anion and Cation Release from a Range of Ternary Phosphate-based Glasses with Fixed 45 mol% P2O5
