(14) Through the searing summer heat, the Mexican immigrant to California’s Central Valley and his family endured a daily routine of collecting water in his pickup truck from an emergency communal tank, washing from buckets and struggling to keep their withering orchard alive while they waited for snow to return to the mountains and begin the cycle of replenishing the aquifer that provides water to almost all the homes in the region.
(15) Grey water is simply the water used in washing dishes, clothes and showering that is allowed to cool, then saved from going down the plug hole and redirected to the garden – either by bucket, or specially installed outlet pipes.

(18) Fire crews typically rely on helicopters scooping up 1,500-litre buckets of water from ponds and streams to put out flames.
(19) Serum samples are overlayered with a sodium chloride density gradient in a preparative ultracentrifuge tube and thin layers are removed at the top of the tube after successive centrifugations at different speeds in a swinging bucket rotor.
(20) As the NHS England chief executive, Simon Stevens, commented : “No one should pretend just combining two financially leaky buckets will magically create a watertight funding solution.” But the preoccupation with structure and funding omits a key piece of the integration puzzle: culture.
(n.) A pot, bucket, or basin, in which molten plate glass is carried from the melting pot to the casting table.
(n.) A cunette.
(n.) A small vessel with at least two flat and transparent sides, used to hold a liquid sample to be analysed in the light path of a spectrometer.
(1) Membranes were sandwiched between two gas-permeable, plastic foils, placed in a sealed cuvette, and gassed with H2 as reductant or O2 as oxidant.
(2) The measured cardiac output is compared with values of cardiac output simultaneously determined using a cuvette densitometer.
(3) A monolayer of red cells was placed in a closed reaction cuvette set on a microscope stage, a light beam of 5 to 10 mum in diameter was directed into one of the red cells, and the light transmission change in the cell was analyzed.
(4) Tests of the wedge cuvette method with Evans Blue and Malachite Green serial dilutions as well as with haemoglobin solutions at several oxygen saturations demonstrate that accuracy of the order of 1% can be obtained.
(5) In purification procedures with microbial collagenases many fractions were tested by overnight incubations in disposable cuvettes.
(6) In this photometric platelet aggregation test (PAT III) a small amount (0.6 ml) of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is being rotated in a disc-shaped cuvette at 20 rpm, at 37% C. Changes in optical density of PRP which are induced by the formation of platelet aggregates are continuously registered using a chart recorder.
(7) Combination of the photometers with a "cuvette test" produced satisfactory results on comparison with a reliable reference method.
