Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
Relating to the measurement of radioactivity:‘radiometric data’
- ‘We note the peak axial radiometric temperature difference between irradiated and nonirradiated surfaces of these specimens was approximately 10 degC.’
- ‘Thermal images were taken with a radiometric infrared video camera.’
- ‘The Institute Nacional de Meteorologia provided the radiometric, columnar ozone and meteorological information for the three stations used in this study.’
- ‘No radiometric technique that is capable of measuring on that large a time scale can narrow down ages within 10,000 years.’
- ‘All of these factors are likely to be important in the case of the Besdegirmen rocks, and hence igneous crystallization ages may be greater than measured radiometric ages.’
- ‘Numerous radiometric age determinations are now available to help unravel the evolution of the East Greenland Caledonide orogen.’
- ‘No radiometric data have been obtained from Stage III rocks.’
- ‘The age of the intrusion is also well constrained by several radiometric analyses.’
- ‘The sediments of the Grensen Formation are barren of all organic material and hence must be dated using radiometric and petrographic evidence alone.’
- ‘Microwave sensor data, thermal and radiometric information etc. can be got even under adverse weather conditions or cloud cover.’
- ‘A single UVB - 1 sensor in the field can experience a change in overall radiometric sensitivity or gain during the year between successive calibrations.’
- ‘Fossils are almost never dated by radiometric methods, since they rarely contain suitable radioactive elements.’
- ‘We have an extensive radiometric dataset from the garnet gneiss, summarized in Table 4.’
- ‘Dumyahn and First measured the three-dimensional emission profile of various types of single lamps by taking radiometric measurements at various points in space.’
- ‘This cannot be a simple application of the photometric and radiometric test methods used for other conventional light sources, for several reasons.’
- ‘Our interest was mainly in the spectral signature of the system, not the absolute radiometric values of the irradiance; thus, distances and angular content did not concern us.’
- ‘It comprises several mafic, mafic-felsic and felsic intrusions with distinctive geochemical affinities and apparent radiometric ages.’
- ‘Both radiometric and biostratigraphic data indicate the onset of magmatism in late Mid-Jurassic time.’
- ‘Both events clearly post-date the lower Rotliegend volcanism in the Southern Permian Basin where the volcanics give radiometric ages in the range 288300 Ma.’
- ‘The temperature-time plot shows how this model also fails to satisfy the radiometric data.’
