Multielemental Analysis of Limestone and Soil Samples of Kitui South (Kenya) Limestone Deposits
The results of analysis of heavy metal in limestone and soil samples from the limestone deposit areas of Kitui South, Kenya were reported in this paper. The analysis was carried out to assess the environmental impact of ...
Estimation of Radiative Forcing due to Aerosols over Selected Sites in Kenya
Atmospheric aerosols modulate the radiative budget and ambient air quality of the atmosphere, thus, there is a need to develop both analytical and computational methodological techniques that determine their physical, ...
Life history of Oplostomus haroldi (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) under laboratory conditions and a description of its third instar larva
The life history of Oplostomus haroldi (Witte), a recently reported pest of honeybee colonies in East Africa, was studied for the first time under laboratory conditions. Adult O. haroldi collected from beehives in the ...
GPS Constraints on the spatial distribution of extension in the Ethiopian highlands and main Ethiopian rift."
(University of Nairobi, 2014-12)
27 campaign and 17 continuous GPS sites spanning the Ethiopian Highlands, Main Ethiopian Rift (MER), and Somali Platform in Ethiopia and Eritrea were measured for varying durations between 1995 and 2014. Velocities at these ...
Deletion of Plasmodium falciparum Histidine-Rich Protein 2 (pfhrp2) and Histidine-Rich Protein 3 (pfhrp3) Genes in Colombian Parasites
A number of studies have analyzed the performance of malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) in Colombia with discrepancies in performance being attributed to a combination of factors such as parasite levels, interpretation ...

A note on metric equivalence of some operators
(Pushpa Publishing House, Allahabad, INDIA, 2012)
In this paper, we study the metric equivalence relation and closely related relations on some classes of operators. We describe the spectral picture of metrically equivalent operators. We give some conditions when metric ...
Application of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell Technology in the Tropics: Effects of Air Mass on Device Performance
Effects of air mass on the performance of a dye-sensitized solar module (DSSM) have been investigated in a tropical area in Nairobi, Kenya. Outdoor measurements were performed at different times on different days and a ...
Thermal Shock Resistance of a Kyanite-Based (Aluminosilicate) Ceramic
(Society for Experimental Mechanics, 2010)
This paper presents the results of a combined experimental and theoretical study of microstructure and thermal shock resistance of an aluminosilicate ceramic. Shock-induced crack growth is studied in sintered ...
