Nihonkoku kenpō Japan's peace Constitution ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"In 2005, sixty years after the end of World War II, a conservative Japanese government is pressing ahead with plans to revise the nation's constitution and jettison its famous no-war clause, Article 9. This timely, hard-hitting documentary places the ongoing debate over the constitution in an international context: What will revision mean to Japan's neighbors, Korea and China? How has the US-Japan military alliance warped the constitution and Japan's role in the world? How is the unprecedented involvement of Japan's Self-Defense Force in the occupation of Iraq perceived in the Middle East? Through interviews conducted with leading thinkers around the world, the film explores the origins of the Constitution in the ashes of war, and the significance of its peace clauses in the conflicted times of the early 21st century"--Container.

The Role of Biologically-Generated Turbulence in the Upper Ocean ( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Our interests are in oceanic processes that contribute to stirring and mixing to understand their impact on larger scales so that better sub-grid scale parameterizations may be implemented. This includes phenomena ranging from the microscale (1 cm) up to the mesoscale (10-100 km). Work on ocean biosphere energetics suggests that schooling marine organisms might generate turbulent dissipation rates with as much as 1 TW available globally to generate ocean turbulence. Measurements in Saanich Inlet revealed intense (10(exp -5) to 10(exp -4) W kg(exp -1)) turbulent bursts coinciding with the dusk vertical migration of a dense krill swarm consisting of up to 10(exp 4) individuals m(exp -3) (0.1% by volume). Lasting only 10-15 minutes, this event was nevertheless of sufficient intensity to increase daily average mixing by 2-3 orders of magnitude. This mechanism could be important for mixing nutrients and gases through the transition layer at the base of the surface mixed-layer. But turbulence dissipation does not always arise in association with migration of backscatter layers and mixing is not always associated with elevated dissipation. We seek to establish whether swimming marine organisms can contribute significantly to ocean mixing by determining the following: (1) how frequently vertically migrating backscatter layers generate turbulence and turbulent mixing; and (2) under what conditions (season, cloud-cover, lunar cycle, backscatter intensity, backscatter migration speed, etc). We have also been asked to participate in the Lateral Mixing DRI where we will map dye spreading and characterize the internal wave and turbulence conditions.
