Evidence for non-Rayleigh characteristics in ship underwater acoustic signatures.

Mark V Trevorrow

J Acoust Soc Am 2021 Apr;149(4):2270

Defence Research and Development Canada-Atlantic, P.O. Box 1012, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia B2Y 3Z7, Canada.

This work examines ship underwater acoustic signature amplitude statistics and statistical distributions and explores the hypothesis that ship signatures exhibit amplitude fluctuations that are different from Rayleigh-distributed ambient ocean noise. Signature measurements from a small oceanographic ship conducting a variety of maneuvers are examined, focusing on those conditions where propeller cavitation and broadband signal modulation occur, specifically during maximum speed runs and turning maneuvers. A key difference for a ship signature is the amplitude modulation generated by propeller cavitation, and this is found to be associated with super-Rayleigh signal characteristics. Read More

Post-mortem storage conditions and cooking methods affect long-chain omega-3 fatty acid content in Atlantic mackerel (Scomber scombrus).

Food Chem 2021 Apr 20;359:129828. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Univ Brest, CNRS, IRD, Ifremer, LEMAR, F-29280 Plouzané, France.

Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acids (DHA) are health beneficial lipids found in high concentration in pelagic fishes, including Atlantic mackerel. While EPA and DHA are sensitive to oxidation during fish storage and processing, post-mortem degradation in the first hours following fish death is poorly documented. Here, we stored fish at two temperatures (2-4 °C and 18-20 °C) and monitored EPA + DHA content in dorsal fillet 6, 12 and 24 h after fish death and after cooking (grill or steam). Read More

Cannabis use disorder, anger, and violence in Iraq/Afghanistan-era veterans.

J Psychiatr Res 2021 Apr 22;138:375-379. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Durham VA Health Care System, Durham, NC, USA; Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA; VA Mid-Atlantic Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center, Durham, NC, USA; VA Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care, Durham, NC, USA.

An association has been found between cannabis use disorder (CUD) and violence in several clinical populations, including veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and there is evidence that CUD has been increasing among veterans since September 11, 2001. There is also evidence that some veterans may be attempting to self-medicate psychological problems including PTSD and aggression with cannabis, despite the lack of safety and efficacy data supporting this use. To date, however, the association between CUD and aggression has yet to be examined in a large, non-clinic sample of veterans. Read More
