Mature trophozoites fixed to stomach epithelium by a differentiation from the protomerite; this protoepimerite is dilated into a sucker and forms lobes which adhere closely to the microvillosities of the stomach epithelium; association precocious, composed of a primite and one or two satellites, these last being placed side by side; in amphipod and decapod crustaceans.
Epimerite subglobose with lateral, recurved hooks; oocysts prismatic, composed of a central, regular hexagonal prism capped at each end by a rectangular, truncated hexagonal pyramid; spines long, in two series of 6 each, inserted symmetrically in the tetrahedral angles at the junctions of the apical pyramids with the central prism; in dragonfly naiads.
Epimerite broadly ovoid, truncated posteriad, with broad, flexible equatorial tumidi that do not form hooks, spines, or digitiform processes; borne on a long, slender stalk; oocysts dodecahedral, elongate, terminally truncate, hexagonal in equatorial cross section, without equatorial faces, with equatorial and terminal spines.

  Equatorial Kundu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Republic of Equatorial Kundu is a fictional African country from the television series The West Wing, based on the real-life nation of Rwanda.
Kundu is a small nation plagued by AIDS, poverty and violence, and consists of two tribes: the Arkutu and the Induye.
With that new doctrine the President sent a brigade of the 82nd Airborne Division, the 101st Airborne Division, and a Marine expeditionary unit to Kundu to stop the violence.

Prasun Kundu (JCET/UMBC) and Thomas Bell of the Climate and Radiation Branch (Code 613.2) contributed a poster titled 'Scale Dependence of Spatial Statistics of TRMM PR-Derived Rainfall and a Stochastic Fractional Diffusion Model' at the special session on Remote Sensing of Precipitation held during the 2005 Joint Assembly in New Orleans, LA, May 23-27, 2005.
A stochastic dynamical model describing space-time variability of precipitation previously tested with surface radar measurements was applied for the first time directly to study spatial statistics of rain derived from satellite measurements.
The paper presented some new results, which clearly demonstrated power-law scaling of the variance of area-averaged rain rates as the spatial resolution is increased, as predicted by the model.

 The Lorentz Factor
The other potentially important loss mechanism is precipitation onto the K2 dwarf surface of those electrons with equatorial pitch angle sufficiently small that their mirror points are inside the star.
It can be shown (Nicholls and Storey 1998; Kundu et al 1987) that scattering is efficient in replenishing those pitch angles that lead to precipitation, and so it is reasonable to assume an isotropic distribution throughout the magnetosphere.
In other words, the electrons with smallest equatorial pitch angles spend the greatest amount of their bounce period in regions where the magnetic field is very large, and with their instantaneous pitch angles close to

While Sverdrup was analyzing observations of equatorial currents, he came upon (11.7) below relating the curl of the wind stress to mass transport within the upper ocean.
In deriving the relationship, Sverdrup assumed that the flow is stationary, that lateral friction and molecular viscosity are small, and that turbulence near the sea surface can be described using an eddy viscosity.
Measurements of mean stress in the equatorial Pacific (Yu and McPhaden, 1999) show that the flow there is in Sverdrup balance.

The effects of differential rotation and stratification are investigated for geophysical fluids.
We are primarily interested in explaining the large-scale structures of the atmosphere of Jupiter, which is dominated by long-lived east-west (zonal) flows, but our theory also has implications for earth's atmosphere and oceans (the equatorial jet streams, for example).
Little is known about what sets the velocity scales or the length scales for these zonal winds, but these scales are clearly not determined directly by the boundaries or the forcing length scales.

A simple model of rain behavior predicts that rms random error in grid-box averages should depend in a simple way on the local average rain rate, and the prediced behavior has been seen in simulations using surface rain-gauge and radar data.
This relationship was examined using satellite SSM/I data obtained over the western equatorial Pacific during TOGA COARE.
RMS error inferred directly from SSM/I rainfall estimates was found to be larger than predicted from surface data, and to depend less on local rain rate than was predicted.
