For the first time megalopa of Mesocrangon intermedia is described. The megalopa can be distinguished from that of the Crangon and Neocrangon by the morphology of its telson and carapace. The main distinguishing features of megalopa of M. intermedia were two spines on medial line of the carapace, a relatively long rostrum, a relatively narrow antennal scale, and the distinctive length of the terminal setae on the telson. Drawings of general view and individual limbs are presented. © 2014 Zoological Institute, Russian Academy of Scienñes. Source

Digital Signal Processing: A Review Journal

In the present paper we will discuss a new wavelet-based approach aimed at processing and analyzing different features of complex geomagnetic signals. This approach makes it possible to automatically extract different kinds of disturbances in the Earth's magnetic field variations, which characterize solar activity and help to predict magnetic storms. In order to analyze geomagnetic signals wavelet packets are used in order to isolate local variations for quiet and perturbed periods and determine their intensity. Furthermore, a new automatic method of calculating the index of geomagnetic activity K is suggested on the basis of forming a quiet-day diurnal variation (Sq-curve). This method allows us to do calculations in the way that is closest to that developed by J. Bartels, who introduced the K-index in 1938. The results are compared with those obtained by INTERMAGNET and the original method of J. Bartels and the advantages of the suggested method are clearly demonstrated. For geomagnetic data collected in high-latitude regions of our planet it has become possible to reduce the error of estimating the K-index by 20% and unlike the technique used by INTERMAGNET here all the calculations can be done automatically. We will use geomagnetic signals that were kindly provided to us by the Institute of Cosmophysical Research and Radio Wave Propagation (Paratunka, Kamchatka region, Far East of Russia) for the period from January, 2002 till December, 2010. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

A mathematical model was developed for calculation of steam-water flow in a geothermal well for the feeding interval. The model assumes a variable mass flow rate over the channel length. The basis for this model are the flow continuity equation, momentum and energy conservation equations, taken with account for variable mass flow. The model was implemented as a computer code suitable for calculation of flow parameters upstream (downward the top level of the feeding zone). Then this model was applied for wells in the Mutnovskii geothermal field, this revealed a geyser-type mechanism of flow instabilities with the pressure oscillation period about ten minutes. The remedy for these oscillations was offered. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. Source

The present article deals with morphological comparison of four species of shrimp larvae, such as Neocrangon communis and Mesocrangon intermedia, Crangon dalli and C. septemspinosa, inhabiting the Okhotsk Sea and north-western part of the Pacific Ocean. Morphological comparison of I-V zoeal stages is discussed. The main morphological differences of the appropriate larval stages are detected. Most features of C. dalli and C. septemspinosa are similar and differ from M. intermedia and N. communis. It is shown that M. intermedia and N. communis more similar species by their origin than it is accepted to think. It is assumed that these two species should be included into one genus-Mesocrangon. The figures of I, III-V zoeal stages are presented. Copyright © 2014 Magnolia Press. Source

A new cold-adapted Arctic strain of Haematococcus pluvialis from Blomstrandhalvøya Island (Svalbard) is described. This strain is predominantly always in non-motile palmelloid stage. Transmission electron microscopy showed the presence of very thick cell wall and abundant lipid vesicles in the palmelloids, including red and green cells. The external morphology of the non-motile palmelloid and motile bi-flagellated cells of our strain is similar to H. pluvialis; however it differs from H. pluvialis in physiology. Our strain is adapted to live and produce astaxanthin in the low temperature (4- 10°C), whilst the usual growth temperature for H. pluvialis is between 20-27°C. Phylogenetic analysis based on 18S rRNA gene data showed that our strain nested within the Haematococcus group, forming a sister relationship to H. lacustris and H. pluvialis, which are considered synonymous. Therefore, we identified our Arctic strain as H. pluvialis. © The Korean Society of Phycology. Source
