Increasing drought periods as a result of global climate change pose a threat to many tree species by possibly outpacing their adaptive capabilities. Revealing the genetic basis of drought stress response is therefore implemental for future conservation strategies and risk assessment. Access to informative genomic regions is however challenging, especially(More)
A neural network (NN) technique to fill gaps in satellite data is introduced, linking satellite-derived fields of interest with other satellites and in situ physical observations. Satellite-derived "ocean color" (OC) data are used in this study because OC variability is primarily driven by biological processes related and correlated in complex, nonlinear(More)
The present paper analyses the community structure of ectomycorrhiza (ECM) and arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) fungi associated with seven different poplar clone types growing in a patch system on soil from four different former land use types, originating from spruce forest, poplar stand, grassland and cornfield. We determined the extent to which ECM and AM(More)
Recently available satellite sea-surface salinity (SSS) fields provide important global data for assimilating into ocean forecast systems. Although an ocean state variable, previous measurements comprised only in situ observations, which were and continue to be extremely sparse in time and space; although, in situ salinity observations have notably(More)
NOAA's Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry has been producing real-time altimetry products from ERS-1 and ERS-2 since 1995. Significant enhancements are made to ESA's fast-delivery data sets, most notably the addition of orbit information provided by the Delft University of Technology. In late 1998, several enhancements were made to the NOAA/Delft altimetry(More)
1 The second version of the NCEP Climate Forecast System (CFSv2) was made operational at 2 NCEP in March 2011. This version has upgrades to nearly all aspects of the data assimilation 3 and forecast model components of the system. A coupled Reanalysis was made over a 32 4 year period (1979-2011), which provided the initial conditions to carry out a(More)
