From the CFD results, in conjunction with flow visualization, it is concluded that mean drag is the dominant mechanism for the two large submergence cases and turbulent engulfment is the dominant mechanism for the small submergences.
As shown from the CFD simulation results, at very small submergences, the drawdown is dominated by turbulent engulfment at the surface and [N.sub.jd] is quite small.
The trend for the unbaffled configuration is similar to the PBTD unbaffled case, differing only in the maximum [N.sub.jd] required at large submergences (350 rpm vs.
For the unbaffled case, the maximum [N.sub.jd] at large submergences is highest (500 rpm > 375 rpm > 350 rpm) for the A340.
Comparable rates of lactate clearance measured in the laboratory submergence study were detected following forced submergences of loggerhead sea turtles in TED-equipped fishing nets.
(1991) reported that Kemp's ridley sea turtles exhibited a significant increase in plasma [[K.sup.+]] following trawl submergences. However, those authors reported that trawl stress had no effect on plasma [[Cl.sup.-]], [[Na.sup.+]], or hematocrit.
The data suggest that forced submergences of 2-year-old loggerhead sea turtles reared in captivity produce significant blood metabolic and respiratory acidosis.
Abstract--Sea turtles are subjected to involuntary submergence and potential mortality due to incidental capture by the commercial shrimp fishing industry.
The second factor was fertilizer (N) treatments consisting of N0 = without submergence: that is, all N fertilizer was given during planting; N1: for submergence during 7-14 days after planting (DAP), N fertilizer was given during planting; N2: for submergence during 7-14 DAP, 1/2 dose of N fertilizer was given during planting and the rest was given at 42 DAP; N3: for submergence during 7-14 and 28-35 DAP, all N fertilizer dose was given during planting; N4: for submergence during 7-14 and 28-35 DAP, 1/2 dose of N fertilizer was given during planting and the rest was given at 42 DAP.
Submergence was done by putting rice crops into tray that had been filled with dirty water (equivalent to 500 g soil/1001 water) with submergence period of 7 days.
According to [10], N fertilizer application was the proper measure to decrease negative effect of submergence stress on crop.
Rice variety which was treated with half dose of N fertilizer during planting time (and the rest was given at 42 days after planting) either received one time submergence or two times submergence and tends to have higher plant height than that of other fertilizing treatments.
