As coastal disasters become more frequent and costly, a full assessment of costs becomes more important. This paper aims to identify costs of coastal disasters to human, social, built and natural capital and their associated services at the local site of a disaster and in the regions and nations that respond for relief and recovery. The spatial and temporal(More)
The spatial distribution of shallow landslides in steep forested mountains is strongly controlled by aboveground and belowground biomass, including the distribution of root cohesion. While remote sensing of aboveground canopy properties is relatively advanced, estimating the spatial distribution of root cohesion at the forest landscape scale remains(More)
This paper will address advanced OLAP capabilities that historically could not be taken advantage via the SAS platform. The paper will include real-world examples demonstrating how the SAS v9 platform has allowed great accessibility to the world of OLAP. Have you ever attempted to apply if/else logic directly into an OLAP cube that will allow the engine to(More)
Although non-point source (NPS) pathogen pollution is a leading cause of stream impairment in the United States, the sources of NPS pollution are often difficult to ascertain. While previous studies have employed land use regression methods to develop a greater understanding of the sources and dynamics of microbial NPS pollution, little work has explicitly(More)
The capability of the Malvern spray analyzer is extended to include particle size measurements in systems containing time varying index of refraction gradients. This is accomplished by adding conditional sampling optical hardware and electronic circuitry to determine when the Malvern laser beam is aligned and to allow particle size data to be collected only(More)
