A mathematical treatment of the initial stages of drying of a soil column

, : A mathematical treatment of the initial stages of drying of a soil column. Soil Science Society of America Journal 44(2): 235-237

A nonlinear diffusion equation governing the initial stages of drying of a soil column is numerically integrated using a method designed to adjust the time step to compensate for steep moisture content gradients. A balance of mass check is used to determine when the simulation becomes invalid. Resulting tables of relative moisture depletion are given for various soils and drying rates.

Tumor-initiating cells (also known as cancer stem cells) are the subpopulation of cells shown to be responsible for tumor initiation, maintenance and recurrence. In breast cancer, CD44(+)/CD24(-/low) cells were identified as tumor-initiating cells...

As a first step in understanding the calcification mechanism, a matrix protein in the gastrolith of the crayfish Procambarus clarkii was purified and sequenced. The protein was insoluble in acid, but after trypsin digestion, it dissolved in 6 M ur...
