One hypothesis describes both environmental resistance mechanisms as being derived from single events of sexual reproduction (in environmental habitats) combining the TR with a cyp51A mutant.
Built with improved environmental resistance and long-distance detection in a mid-sized, right-angle housing, the RightSight M30 smart sensor offers the flexibility and performance required for a wide range of high-demand applications.
Its high tensile strength drives the PBO market but its low environmental resistance may limit its growth.
This low viscosity glass provides a "self-healing" mechanism but also results in an oxidation and environmental resistance behavior that is path dependent due to the variable chemistry of the oxidation product.
It also improves environmental resistance compared to other design solutions by using a non-conductive adhesive solution, and reduced cycle times, enabled by novel adhesive technologies capable of heat accelerating curing processes and latent ambient temperature cure.
This is likely attributable to two phenomena: (1) unusually low horizontal shear at the outflow level, particularly to the north, that enabled the storms, during their intensification phases, to build up their own low-potential-vorticity (PV) dome, and (2) low environmental resistance at the outflow level that allows a strong divergent outflow to expand the outflow dome laterally in all directions equally.
