1. INTRODUCTION Hyperspectral image compression has received considerable interest in recent years due to enormous data volumes collected by imaging spectrometers which consists of hundreds of contiguous spectral bands with very high between-band spectral correlation. Due to such significantly improved spatial and spectral resolution provided by a(More)
In this paper, bioaugmentation was applied to upgrade a full-scale activated sludge system (S2) into a contact oxidation system (S1). Results showed that when chemical oxygen demand (COD) and ammonia nitrogen (NH(4)(+)-N) concentration of the petrochemical wastewater were 320-530 mg/L and 8-25mg/L, respectively, the bioaugmented process (S1) took only 20(More)
A microbial fuel cell (MFC) was constructed to investigate the possible generation of electricity using cattle dung as a substrate. After 30 days of operation, stable electricity was generated, and the maximum volumetric power density was 0.220 W/m(3). The total chemical oxygen demand (TCOD) removal and coulombic efficiency (CE) of the MFC reached 73.9±1.8%(More)
Emerging contaminants are considered as some substances of actual or potential threat to human health or environment, which include endocrine disruptors, pharmaceutical, personal care products, nanoparticles, antibiotic resistance genes and chemicals used in packaging products, etc. The disposal and treatment of emerging contaminants has become a key(More)
—One of the challenges in remote sensing image processing is subpixel detection where the target size is smaller than the ground sampling distance, therefore, embedded in a single pixel. Under such a circumstance, these targets can be only detected spectrally at the subpixel level, not spatially as ordinarily conducted by classical image processing(More)
Hyperspectral image compression can be performed by either 3-D compression or spectral/spatial compression. It has been demonstrated that due to high spectral resolution hyperspectral image compression can be more effective if compression is carried out spectrally and spatially in two separate stages. One commonly used spectral/spatial compression(More)
Spectral measures have been used in material identification and discrimination. They are effective if the spectral signatures are calibrated and not contaminated. However, it may not be true in many real applications, specifically, for mixed pixels and subpixel targets. This paper investigates the issue of discrimination and identification for subpixel(More)
The ecological security index (ESI) system including 27 indices for Heilongjiang Province was built up with the pressure-state-response (P-S-R) model. The weights of the indices were determined by analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and the ecological security status classification was evaluated by the ESI model for the years of 2000-2005. Then the(More)
This is a literature review for the year 2015 and contains information specifically associated with suspended growth processes including activated sludge, upflow anaerobic sludge blanket, and sequencing batch reactors. The review encompasses modeling and kinetics, nutrient removal, system design and operation. Compared to past reviews, many topics show(More)
This work proposes a new process of recovering Co from spent Li-ion batteries (LIBs) by a combination of crushing, ultrasonic washing, acid leaching and precipitation, in which ultrasonic washing was used for the first time as an alternative process to improve the recovery efficiency of Co and reduce energy consumption and pollution. Spent LIBs were crushed(More)
