gambiae) and r(s) = 0.745, p = 0.002) and the results used to map suitable climate zones for vector species and relative vector abundance proved very good agreement (1,9,21,23,24,35,44,60,62,64,76).
Gap: Limited availability of country-specific taxonomic keys and limited knowledge of species' bionomics, relative vector status, and distribution
However, regionally relevant identification keys along with descriptions related to the feeding, breeding, and resting behavior, relative vector status, and distribution of species are still lacking for much of the tropics.
As the previous article correctly stated, the availability of velocity vector information on traffic displays (especially the relative vectors provided by Garmin) is an extremely valuable aid to anticipating potential traffic conflicts.
Once the antenna relative baselines with respect to a master antenna are estimated using the baseline estimation filter, an earth-centered, earth-fixed (ECEF) antenna relative position matrix, [L.sub.e], is constructed at each epoch by vertically concatenating the estimate relative vectors of each of nonmaster antenna, as adopted from Cohen and Parkinson [3]:
Note that (21) expresses the relative vectors [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], in terms of the relative vectors [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
By taking the time derivatives of (21), the velocities of the relative vectors [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], are given as
Referring to Figure 2(b) again, the relative vectors [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] can be expressed in the coordinate system ([MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]) as
