Data gathered in recent years has shown that current WAIS
ice loss stems from relatively warm deep ocean water overflowing the shallow continental shelf and in some locations melting floating parts of glaciers at the coastline while also causing upstream thinning.
2002), and indeed education was significantly correlated to all WAIS
and TOPF scores in the sample, which is also consistent with prior research (Barona et al.
Arithmetic (without Letter-Number Sequencing from the WAIS
III); Perceptual Organization (PO)--Picture Completion and Block Design (without Matrix Reasoning from the WAIS
III); Processing Speed (PS) Digit Symbol-coding (without Symbol Search from the WAIS
The total COTE score and the three COTE dimension scores were all significantly positively correlated (at approximately the same level) with the WAIS
digit symbol-coding test results.
The volume of ice on the Antarctic Peninsula is small compared to that of WAIS
The 13-metre map shows the effects of both the Greenland and WAIS
melting and the 84-metre map is the "doomsday" scenario - what would happen if the East Antarctic ice sheet also disintegrated.
The lowest scores on the WAIS
were recorded in tasks that required concentration, memory, and general knowledge.
Among the mixed-set sample, the mean full-scale WAIS
IQ scores were 99.
These studies, therefore, continue the work of previous investigators, who examined age-by-age changes on the WAIS
-R, by addressing the relationship of several of Horn's constructs within his expanded notion of Gf-Gc theory to age changes across the adult life span.
The height of the WAIS
has been mapped with radar measurements from the ERS satellite altimeter, accurate to within 20 centimetres, at regular intervals since 1992.
Continued recession and perhaps even complete disintegration of the WAIS
within the present interglacial period could well be inevitable," concludes Conway's team.
AOL offers all the major attractions of the Internet, such as WWW, news groups, FTP, WAIS
and Gopher server databases.
