Remote sensing of water quality in inland waters requires reliable retrieval algorithms, accurate atmospheric correction and consistent method for uncertainty estimation. In this paper, the GSM semi-analytical inversion model is modified for inland waters to derive inherent optical properties (IOPs) and their spectral dependencies from air and space borne(More)
We applied photoacoustics as a tissue tomography technique for the detection of blood concentrations, e.g., angiogenesis around tumors. We imaged blood vessels in highly scattering samples, using 532-nm light, to depths of ~1 cm . The samples were real tissue (chicken breast) or 10% dilutions of Intralipid-10%. The blood flowed through nylon capillaries.(More)
In applied science, resolution has always been, and still is, an important issue. Since it is not unambiguously defined, it is interpreted in many ways. In this paper, which reviews the concept of optical resolution, a number of these interpretations are discussed. A discussion of resolution has to be preceded by a discussion of what is actually understood(More)
There is an ongoing debate on how to model diffusivity in fiber crossings. We propose an optimization framework for the selection of a dual tensor model and the set of diffusion weighting parameters b, such that both the diffusion shape and orientation parameters can be precisely as well as accurately estimated. For that, we have adopted the Cramér-Rao(More)
Measuring the diffusion properties of crossing fibers is very challenging due to the high number of model parameters involved and the intrinsically low SNR of Diffusion Weighted MR Images. Noise filtering aims at suppressing the noise while pertaining the data distribution. We propose an adaptive version of the Linear Minimum Mean Square Error (LMMSE)(More)
Scaling up microbial fuel cells (MFCs) is inevitable when power outputs have to be obtained that can power electrical devices other than small sensors. This research has used a bipolar plate MFC stack of four cells with a total working volume of 20 L and a total membrane surface area of 2 m(2). The cathode limited MFC performance due to oxygen reduction(More)
In Spring, the insecticide and nematicide aldicarb in the granular formulation Temik 10G (supplied by Union Carbide) was broadcast on three potato fields and incorporated by rotary cultivation. Ridges were formed by repeated runs with ridging implements. The soil was sampled in layers of 0.1 m up to 0.8 m depth three to four times during the growing season.(More)
This paper shows the results of experiments (adsorption, degradation and mobility) carried out to investigate the risk of pirimicarb leaching to groundwater, after its application to integrated fruit growing systems. Soil batches were collected from experimental fruit farms in Numansdorp and Zeewolde (The Netherlands). The distribution coefficients and the(More)
To maximize the production of carboxylic acids with open cultures of microbial consortia (reactor microbiomes), we performed experiments to understand which factors affect the community dynamics and performance parameters. We operated six thermophilic (55 °C) bioreactors to test how the factors: (i) biomass pretreatment; (ii) bioreactor operating(More)
