Furthermore, even in countries which experienced a peaceful development of their oil industry, land use and environmental issues occur. Therefore, independent monitoring of oil field infrastructure may support problem solving. Earth observation(More)
Criterion-free forced-choice procedures for measuring contrast sensitivity with a cathode ray tube (CRT) have low within-subject, intersubject, and test-retest variabilities, but a long test time compared with psychophysical methods that rely on the subject's criterion to determine threshold. Test time and variability of criterion-dependent methods depend(More)
