a large central intrusion surrounded by variably mineralised multiple porphyry arms located at the base of a large mineralised hypothermal system, with multiple mineral deposits.
Cool, that is, in the broader sense of the word: Kittler's first impact on his native soil took place at a time when many believed Germany's cultural climate was entering an Eiszeit, or ice age, as society became increasingly technologized--and that the only adequate response was a deliberately hypothermal conduct.
Buzzards keen mournfully in the distance, perhaps anticipating the imminent demise of a hypothermal trainer.
Hyper-thermal baths (40[degrees]C or hotter baths) lead to intensive responses especially in cardiovascular functions; because of this isothermal (33-35[degrees]C) or slight hypothermal baths (30-33[degrees]C) are recommended instead of hyper-thermal baths (3).
wesseliana, a largely forest-dependent species, persisted as relict populations along the coastal scarp in northern Zululand during the last hypothermal, expanding northwards and coastwards as forest cover increased.
We collected these snails in spring 2005, autumn 2006, and autumn 2007, near Rabagani, Romania, Eastern Europe (46[degrees]45'1.3"N, 22[degrees]12'44.8"E) in a hypothermal spring.
Abundant evidence indicates that mercury becomes concentrated in shallow epithermal deposits but is rare in mesothermal and hypothermal deposits except as broad geochemical halos that argue for its high mobility at elevated temperature (Barnes, 1967).
During colder than average winters, ladyfish have experienced hypothermal mortality in both Tampa Bay (Springer and Woodburn, 1960) and the Indian River Lagoon (Snelson and Bradley, 1978).
These several relictual populations collectively suggest a wider distribution of the species to the north in the past, during a hypsithermal period, and a partial withdrawal during the current hypothermal period, occurring not long enough ago to have permitted subsequent taxonomic differentiation.
