when NAME 2004 was conducted, and the experimental design are found in Higgins et al. (2006) . This issue of the Journal of Climate presents a set of articles that report preliminary findings from analysis of the NAME 2004 datasets and related modeling studies. Many of the results are new, while some are confirmatory of previous studies. The full impact of NAME 2004 on monsoon prediction and applications will not be realized until a thorough integration of analysis and modeling studies has been

technique, and the experimental setup and method of retrieval of aerosol profiles by using the twilight photometer, which is designed, developed, and installed at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, India, are detailed. 2. Basic principle of twilight technique A schematic diagram of the twilight phenomena is shown in Fig. 1 . When the sun is within 0°–12° below the horizon, the lower part of the atmosphere comes under the earth’s shadow while the upper part is sunlit. The

The experimental products were created to increase the “accessibility of life-saving products via interfaces [such as social media] that are not conducive to the display of long fuse products” ( NWS 2020 , p. 1) allowing for a wide reach to external users by redistribution through social media.

] more likely to persist” ( Erber et al. 1995 , p. 436). The prediction then is that, relative to those who do not receive a prompt, those who receive a corrective prompt will demonstrate stability in their initial attitudes, and will be significantly less susceptible to the local warming effect (i.e., reliance on perceptions of today’s temperature deviation) a week after receiving the initial prompt, with all else constant (hypothesis 3). 2. Experimental design and procedure Participants ( n = 307

). The above-mentioned reasons have made the HRB an ideal field laboratory to further pursue integrated eco-hydrological studies and integrated river basin management that can benefit both the natural ecosystem and society. Heihe Watershed Allied Telemetry Experimental Research (HiWATER) was initialized based on the reasons provided in the background above. It is designed to be a comprehensive eco-hydrological experiment in the framework of the Heihe Plan, based on the diverse needs of the

Medicine Bow target area, collected in 2007–08 with an acoustic IN counter ( Langer 1973 ; Heimbach et al. 2008 ; Super et al. 2010 ), indicated that for some conditions, experimental contamination of the Medicine Bow target occurred up to 4 h after seeding in the Sierra Madre Range. Therefore, a 4-h buffer period was chosen for the RSE. In a randomized seeding experiment involving two alternating barriers, such as in a crossover design, seedable conditions must exist over both barriers for the

risk. As mentioned previously, however, no experimental work examining the effectiveness of actual IBWs exists, and the research presented here was designed to address this issue. 3. Study rationale and specific hypotheses The research reported here empirically investigates the effectiveness of the IBW approach. In three experiments, the present research examined the influence of the extra IBW text (e.g., the hazard, source, and impact information) on the ability of individuals to make protective

also demonstrated in free-viewing tasks to prove that the location of fixations was not random. Rather, fixations occurred more frequently in the most semantically and visually rich regions of an image (e.g., Buswell 1935 ; Yarbus 1967 ). This observation was important because it provided evidence that eye movements are an important representation of attention. More recently, eye tracking has been used in a variety of visual search tasks. For example, studies that have focused on web design and
