Abstract Actual irrigation situation in a typical upland irrigation district was estimated by the water balance method during the 1993 rainy and the 1994 dry year periods. Soil moisture conditions were analysed for cases where daily district water use was supplied to all the cropped upland farms, and to reduced irrigation area percentages. Consumptive use was obtained through monthly weighted crop coefficients used to reduce penman's potential evapotranspiration. The moisture budget was examined at three levels of total readily available moisture, TRAM, i.e., 20,30 and 40 mm; the effect of upward capillary rise was also considered. The results of this study indicated that the actual moisture conditions in upland irrigated farms is influenced by irrigation area, cropping pattern, stage of crop growth and upward capillary rise in the farms. Actual irrigated area was within the range of about 44 to 100% of cropped area while upward capillary rise was between 0.1 and 1 mm day-1, TRAM level of 30 to 40 mm was considered most appropriate for the district. Monthly effective rainfall percentages from the water balance method were fairly close to that determined by the basic irrigation requirement method for some months. Basic irrigation requirement may therefore be considered to incorporate capillary water contribution.

Abstract 高齢気管支喘息症例の病態を解明するために30才以降の気管支喘息症例について年齢層別に臨床的特徴を検討した。1)60才以上の高齢気管支喘息症例は全体の41.1%を占めており,年齢層別では50-59才,60-69才の症例が多く認められた。2)ほとんどの症例が成人発症喘息であり,高齢気管支喘息では92.3%が中高年発症型気管支喘息であった。3)加齢に伴って細気管支閉塞型気管支喘息の増加か認められた。4)血清IgE値は50-59才で再増加し,histamine release,LTC(4)産生は40149才で高値であった。5)40-69才の年齢層でステロイド依存性難治性喘息が多く認められた。以上高齢気管支喘息症例は中高年発症型喘息の病態の特徴を有しており,中高年発症型気管支喘息の病態の解明が必要と考えられた。
Abstract Alternative To examine clinical characteristics of asthma in elderly (over 60 years), age at onset, clinical asthma types, glucocorticoid therapy, serum IgE levels and release of chemical mediators (histamine and leukotriene C(4)) were examined in 145 asthmatics over 30 years and divided into five age groups ; 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79 years. 1. The freqeuncy of asthmatics was 13.7% in age group between 30 and 39, 14.4% between 40 and 49, 30.8% between 50 and 59, 28.8% between 60 and 69, 12.3% between 70 and 79 years, respectively. The frequency of elder asthmatics (over age 60) was 41.1%. 2. The frequency of adult onset asthma (over 20 years) was 90.3% of all subjects, and the frequency of late onset asthma (over 40 years) was 92.3% of elderly subjects over age 60. 3. Numbers of asthmatics with bronchiolar obstruction type show a tendency to increase with aging. 4. Serum IgE level was increased in subjects aged 50-59 years. Histamine release (%) and release of leukotriene C(4) from peripheral leukocytes were higher in age group between 40 and 49 compared to those in the other age groups. 5. Number of patients with steroid-dependent intractable asthma was increased in age group between 40 and 69. These results suggest that elderly asthmatics show the characteristics of late onset asthma, and further examinations of late onset asthma is important to clarify the pathogenesis of asthma in elderly.

Abstract Characteristics of airway response in steroid-dependent intractable asthma (SDIA) were examined in 86 asthma patients (43 with SDIA and 43 with non-SDIA) divided into three age groups: 20-39, 40-59 and 60+ years, by observing cellular composition of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid and ventilatory function. 1. The level of serum cortisol was significantly lower in patients with SDIA than in those with non-SDIA in all age groups. 2. The proportion of lymphocytes in BAL fluid was significantly decreased in patients with SDIA compared to results in non-SDIA patients in the age between 40-59, and over 60+ years, While BAL neutrophils were significantly increased in SDIA patients compared to results in non-SDIA patients in the age group over 60 years. 3. Of ventilatory parameters, the values of % FVC, FEV(1.0%), % MMF and % V(25) were significantly lower in SDIA patients over the age of 60 compared with non-SDIA subjects of the same age group. These results show that in SDIA patients the proportion of BAL lymphocytes decreases and the proportion of BAL neutrophils increases with aging, and that ventilatory function in SDIA patients also decreases with aging compared to non-SDIA patients.

Abstract Alternative Backgrounds and immunological characteristics were studied in patients with chronic respiratory diseases admitted at Misasa Branch Hospital in 1989. At the same time, clinical effects of spa therapy were evaluated for these patients. 1. Eighty five patients with chronic respratory diseases comprised 65 patients with bronchial asthma, 4 with pulmonary emphysema, 4 with lung tuberculosis, 3 with allergic granulomatous angitis, 3 with obstructive bronchiolitis, 2 with bronchiectasia, 2 with chronic bronchitis and 2 with hypersensitivity pneumonitis. 2. Sixty three patients (74.1%) out of the 85 cases had spa therapy. 3. Out of 51 patients coming from Tottori prefecture, 32 cases (62.7%) received spa therapy. On the other hand, spa therapy was carried out for 19 cases (95.0%) out of the 20 cases from Okayama prefecture, and for 12 cases (85.7%) out of the 14 cases from the other prefectures (long distant areas). 4. Many cases with bronchial asthma showed low serum levels of IgE (lower than 200 IU/ml), and frequency of positive skin reactions to various allergens was low in the patients with bronchial asthma. Serum cortisol levels were very low in patients with steroid-dependent asthma. 5. Spa therapy was effective in 41 cases (80.3%) out of the 51 patients with bronchial asthma. Spa therapy also effective for patients with obstructive bronchiolitis, and allergic granulomatous angitis.

Title Alternative Rain-water Retention of a Small-scale Upland Field in a Rainy Year and a Droughty Year
FullText URL 001_143_149.pdf
Author Yomota, Atsushi|
Abstract From the standpoint of water resources development and environmental preservation, rain water retentivity of agricultural and forest lands are evaluated. Measurement of rainfall and runoff has been carried out at the reclaimed upland field of 4.55 ha since 1981. In this article, water retention characteristics of this study basin is compared in a rainy year of 1993 and a droughty year of 1994. In cases of rainfall less than 20mm, most of the rain water infiltrates into the soil layer. On the other hand, about 75% of a heavy rain, such as 300 mm in 1993, runs off the soil surface. Within the infiltrating rain water, the ratio of water which is kept by capillary action and can be used by crops is estimated to be less than 40% in months of rainfall more than 150 mm, but in months of rainfall less than 50 mm, it is estimated that more than 80% of rainfall can be used by crops. The ratio of monthly rainfall which contributes to base flow recharge is 0 to 12% regardless of rainfall amount.

Title Alternative Vonnegut's Brain Computer Laying stress on Galápagos and Hocus Pocus
FullText URL 002_145_161.pdf
Author Morokawa, Shigetake|
Abstract As Kurt Vonnegut (1922--) has written his novels to give warnings about the growing danger of society, in the case of valuation, it is very important to understand what happened in his time and how his works resulted from a historic background. In the late of 1970's and 80's, society underwent a few big changes, for example, signs of communism collapse on a line of the Soviet Union's perestoroika, Japanese rapid economic growth, the unbalanced world economy by the heavy fall in stock prices in America and, in the field of science, the progress of computer technology in the use of a semiconductor instead of a vacuum tube. The mentioned above data were input into Vonnegut's Brain Computer. As a result, Galápagos was publishied in 1985, Hocus Pocus in 1990. In this paper, I analyzes Vonnegut's works from such a point of view, laying stress on Galápagos and Hocus Pocus.

Abstract 多数のブユに刺されたのを契機に重症反応を呈するようになった29歳男性例について,アレルギー学的検討を行った。血清IgE値が高値(4591U/ml)であったが,免疫グロブリン,抗核抗体,血清補体価,CD4,CD8陽性リンパ球出現頻度などいずれも正常であり,またハウスダスト,カンジダその他16種類の吸入性抗原,ミツバチ,スズメバチ,アシナガバチ,ゴキブリ,ヤブカ,ユスリカなどの昆虫抗原に対する特異的IgE抗体はいずれも陰性であった。一方ニッポンヤマブユ抗原による好塩基球からのヒスタミン遊離は陰性であったが,皮膚反応,IgE抗体は陽性を示したことから,本症例における重症化因子としてIgE系反応の関与が示唆された。なおEBウイルス抗体価の検討では,EBV-EADR抗体はすべて陰性,EBNA-EIA抗体はIgG抗体のみ陽性であり,EBウイルスの既感染状態と判断されたが,病因との関連は明らかではなかった。
Abstract Alternative Allergic examinations were studied on the 29 years old male case, who suffered from severe systemic reactions by black fly bites, after the episode of much black fly bites in 1987. The level of serum IgE was high in the case, and both skin reaction and specitic IgE antibodies to whole body extract of black fly (Simulium nacojapi) were positive. The results obtained here suggest that IgE-mediated allergic reaction would play an important role in the severe systemic reactions induced by black fly bites.

Abstract Encapsulation of thiophen and bithiophen in two kinds of hexagonal faujasites (Na-EMT and H-EMT) with various concentration of Cu(2+) ions have been investigated and characterized by means of themoanalytic and spectroscopic methods. From the results, it was found that the progress of polymerization of thiophen and bithiophen in the lattice space depended on Cu(2+) contents, and the encapsulation of thiophen in Na-EMT and H-EMT with Cu(2+) ions yielded polythiophen clusters with electron states of bipolaron. On the other hand, polythiophen clusters synthesized by the encapsulation of bithiophen in H-EMT were found to be mostly polaron states.

Abstract Corrosion behavior of silica glass was investigated in high-pressure water vapor and water at 300℃. A linear weight loss in water vapor and a parabolic weight loss in water were observed. The weight loss for the former was larger than that for the later. The fracture strength of the corroded silica glass increased with the content of molecular water in the glass. The strength reduction was observed for the corroded silica glass after dehydration at 400℃ for 1 day.

Abstract Thermal 'staircase', a layer of constant temperature between the sheets of the steep gradients, was formed in the seasonal thermocline, which was 2.5 m above the bottom at a point of 18 m deep on the boundary slope in Lake Biwa. Following a sediment resuspension event when a moderate onshore wind blew, bed materials should be suspended up to the thermocline, then settled down forming a staircase above the turbid intrusion. Comparing the observed downward hear flux with the settling flux of sediment, it was found that double-diffusive convection would play an important role on the formation of the whole structure consisting of the staircase and turbid intrusion along with chemical anomalies and dense population of phytoplankters, which were fed by nutrients supplied from the bottom sediment under a typical condition of drought. Laboratory experiments were conducted to demonstrate the thermal and sediment processes in the stratified lake. Resuspension process due to surface and internal waves was examined using a tank with a sloping bottom, while the settling process was investigated by using a deep, diffusive tank. Formative process and scales of the staircase and intrusion were discussed relating with the intensity of resuspension and the buoyancy fluxes.

Abstract The proportions of cells in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid, the release of histamine, leukotrienes C(4) and B(4) from leucocytes and BAL cells, and bronchial reactivity to methacholine were examined in 40 patients with asthma in relation to patient age. 1. The proportions of lymphocytes and neutrophils in BAL fluid were higher in older patients over age 60 than in younger patients between 20 and 49. The proportions of eosinophils and basophilic cells in BAL fluid were higher in younger patients than in older patients, and the difference in the proportion of BAL basophilic cells was significant between the two groups (p<0.05). 2. The release of histamine from BAL cells was significantly higher in younger patients than in older patients (p<0.001). The release of LTC(4) from BAL cells was higher in older patients compared to younger patients. 3. Bronchial reactivity to methacholine was higher in younger patients than in older patients. The number of patients reactive to low concentration of methacholine (390μg/mℓ or less) was larger in younger patients (12/16 ; 75.0%) than in older patients (5/14 ; 35.7%). These results suggest that bronchial hyperresponsiveness changes with aging, accompanied by changes in the release of chemical mediators from BAL cells and in the proportion of BAL cells.

Abstract Partial least squares linear discriminant function (PLSD) as well as ordinary linear discriminant function (LDF) are used in pattern recognition analysis of writer identification based on are patterns extracted from the writings written with Hangul letters by 20 Koreans. Also a simulation study is performed using the Monte Carlo method to compare the performances of PLSD and LDF. PLSD showed remarkably better performance than LDF in the Monte Calro study and slightly better performance in the analysis of the real pattern recognition data.

Abstract Efficacy of complex spa therapy was studied in 55 patients with bronchial asthma. Complex spa therapy was effective in 47 (85.5%) of the 55 patients with bronchial asthma : marked efficacy was observed in 15 (27.3%), moderate in 32 (58.2%), slight in 6 (10.9%) and no efficacy in 2 patients (3.6%). Improvement of clinical symptoms and findings by complex spa therapy was more clearly observed in patients with an increased proportion of BAL lymphocytes, neutrophils and eosinophils. These findings suggest that complex spa therapy more affects cell infiltration in the airways than bronchoconstriction induced by chemical mediators. Improvement of ventilatory function represented by FEV1.0% value was higher in patients with a low proportion of BAL neutrophils, suggesting that patients with increased number of BAL neutrophils require longer complex spa therapy than those without BAL neutrophilia.
Abstract Alternative 気管支喘息55例を対象に,複合温泉療法(温泉プール水泳訓練+ヨードゾル吸入+鉱泥湿布療法)を試み,その臨床効果と気道炎症反応との関連について,若干の検討を加えた。1.複合温泉療法の臨床効果では,著効15例(27.3%),有効32例(58.2%),やや有効6例,無効2例であり,明らかに有効と判断された症 例は,55例中47例(85.5%)であった。2.複合温泉療法は,気管支肺胞洗浄液(BALF)中の細胞成分(リンパ球,好中球,好酸球など)が多い症例,すなわち気道炎症反応がより強い症例により有効であった。このことは,複合温泉療法が,単純性の(化学伝達物質による)気管支攣縮よりも,気道炎症反応をともなった病態により強く影響を及ぼすことを示している。3.複合温泉療法による換気機能の改善(1秒量)は,BAL液中の好中球数が少ない症例においてより高度であった。このことは,BAL液中に高度な好中球増多が見られる症例に対しては,より長期的な複合温泉療法が必要であることを示しているものと考えられた。

Abstract Our visual actions take both the sensory and reversible views in the relationship of the mutual coordination between them. And the visual actions, as a whole, realize the sensory scene when having the marked tendency to sensory views, and the reversible scene to reversible views. The author of Sakuteiki classified natural scenery into the landscape types called yo. The landscape types were transformed into the places where humans and nature happened to meet harmoniously. It was the main theme of the author of Sakuteiki to discuss how we should compose rocks in the place. We can find, in Sakuteiki, two manners of looking at nature, such as 'changing the taste' corresponding to the sensory view, and 'in compliance with the requesting mood of 'to the reversible view. They were, in the paper, studied to analyze the naturalistic landscaping of Sakuteiki.

Abstract A linear scattering inverse method based in the Kirchhoff approximation is formulated to determine the location and size of a crack in a solid. A characteristic function, which defines the size of a crack, can be reconstructed from the inverse Fourier transform of scattered amplitudes at far field. The inverse method is applied to ultrasonic data scattered by a crack in an aluminum specimen. Agreement between reconstructed characteristic functions and exact ones is not good enough, because experimental conditions do not coincide with theoretical ones. We can, however, evaluate the location and size of a crack from sharp minimum points reproduced at crack tips.
