stratum spongiosum

The middle layer of decidua of the endometrium.

stratum submucosum

However, the barrier effect of the "soft-hard-soft" compound water-resistant strata composed by sand mudstone, medium sandstone, and sand mudstone of the workface floor, as shown numbers 9, 10, and 11 in Table 1, which existed between the floor mining failure zone and the confined water-conducting zone in the 1066 workface floor, could buffer the floor mining failure depth, obstruct the further progressive conducting of the confined water, and inhibit the occurrence of water inrush from the workface floor [18-20].
Clipping of negative samples and adding of cyclic prefixes are then done on the 1st and the 2nd subframes of all strata. Clipping of negative samples can be performed using the following operation:
Once the strata plan is cancelled, the individual lots terminated, and the owners paid for their fractional shares, the Twelve Oaks building will be demolished.
Commenting on Al-Olama's new role, Khalid Al Qubaisi, CEO of the aerospace, renewables and ICT business platform of Mubadala Investment Company, said: "This is a landmark moment for both Strata and Mubadala, as the aerospace sector continues to be one of the most prestigious and prosperous industries in the UAE, supporting the drive to create a knowledge-based and sustainable economy.
It indicates that there are strata controlling the upper strata to surface cover layer.
This accomplishment, Al Mulla explains, led to Strata being awarded the EN 9100 aerospace accreditation, which recognises an organisation as a model for quality assurance in design, development, manufacturing, installation and assistance.
"The expansion of their facilities is a significant commitment and investment by UAE and Strata to advance their aerospace manufacturing capabilities and support their long-term economic vision," said Bernard Dunn, president of Boeing Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.
Commenting on the new contract award, Ismail Ali Abdulla, CEO of Strata, stated: "During the past 12 months, Strata worked diligently to ensure the smooth delivery of the belly fairing for Pilatus' ground-breaking aircraft.
In February, Strata delivered its first shipset of belly fairings for the PC-24, which is specifically engineered to take off and land from unpaved runways with incredible short-field performance.
As part of this partnership, Arcus will gain access to Strata's drug development platform, featuring leading capabilities to design and conduct transformative precision therapy studies.
And, since strata is such a great make-ahead dish, it should also be straightforward to put together.
