An integrated approach to reservoir, irrigation, and cropping management which links four di€erent modelsÐa hydrologic model (PRMS), a crop growth simulation model (EPIC), an economic model based on linear programming , and a dynamic programming modelÐis developed and demonstrated. The demonstration is based on an irrigation district located in a subhumid(More)
Vaccines prevent infectious disease largely by inducing protective neutralizing antibodies against vulnerable epitopes. Several major pathogens have resisted traditional vaccine development, although vulnerable epitopes targeted by neutralizing antibodies have been identified for several such cases. Hence, new vaccine design methods to induce(More)
As the pixel size of CMOS image sensors (CIS) shrink, problems associated with crosstalk become more severe for devices built using mainstream CMOS processing. This high crosstalk increases the amount of noise added to the final image (via an increase of the off-diagonal terms in the color correction matrix (CCM)) and degrades the modulation transfer(More)
Maritime ships operating on-board illumination at night appear as point sources of light to highly sensitive low-light imagers on-board environmental satellites. Unlike city lights or lights from offshore gas platforms, whose locations remain stationary from one night to the next, lights from ships typically are ephemeral. Fishing boat lights are most(More)
A growing number of projects are solving complex computational and scientific tasks by soliciting human feedback through games. Many games with a purpose focus on generating textual tags for images. In contrast, we introduce a new game, Odd Leaf Out, which provides players with an enjoyable and educational game that serves the purpose of identifying(More)
s During the last peak of the solar activity cycle, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the spatial and temporal variations of the equatorial ionosphere had a significant impact on the measurement accuracy of the ARPA Long-Range Tracking and Instrumentation Radar (ALTAIR) at the Kwajalein Missile Range (KMR), primarily because of poorly modeled ionospheric(More)
During the early winter of 2002 and late winter of 2007, the Alaskan sector of the North Pacific Ocean region experienced record-breaking temperature anomalies. The duration of these episodes was unusually long, with each lasting more than 1 month: 55 days for the warm anomaly of October–December 2002 and 37 days for the cold anomaly of February–March 2007.(More)
Visible/Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Imagery from the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite is the finest spatial resolution (375 m) multi-spectral imagery of any operational meteorological satellite to date. The Imagery environmental data record (EDR) has been designated as a Key Performance Parameter (KPP) for VIIRS,(More)
Microbialites can have complex morphologies that preserve clues to ancient microbial ecology. However, extracting and interpreting these clues is challenging due to both the complexity of microbial structures and the difficulties of connecting morphology to microbial processes. Fenestrate microbialites from the 2521±3 Ma Gamohaan Formation, South Africa,(More)
Le concept d'apprentissage se situe à la confluence de nombreux champs d'étude (la gestion de projet, le changement organisationnel, l'innovation, le management des savoirs, le benchmarking…). Il apparaît comme un concept « carrefour ». Situé à l'interface de nombreuses pratiques de management, il est difficile de saisir l'influence du phénomène(More)
