This paper investigates the extent to which a useful general purpose Translation Memory (TM) can be built based on very large amounts of heterogeneous parallel texts mined from the Web. In particular, we evaluate whether such a TM could add value over TMs built from other large, publicly available parallel corpora, such as the Canadian Hansard. In the case(More)
The first demonstration of a multispectral light detection and ranging (LiDAR) optimized for detailed structure and physiology measurements in forest ecosystems is described. The basic principle is to utilize, in a single instrument, both the capacity of multispectral sensing to measure plant physiology [through normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI)(More)
Machine Translation (MT) is rapidly progressing towards quality levels that might make it appropriate for broad user populations in a range of scenarios, including gisting and post-editing in unconstrained domains. For this to happen, the field may however need to switch gear and move away from its current technology driven paradigm to a more user-centered(More)
There is an increasing need for accurate forest inventories to assist forest managers and decision-makers in the planning of their forest resource. Airborne LiDAR methods enable the construction of Tree Canopy Models (TCM) at a fine resolution, thereby facilitating the delineation of individual tree crowns. This information can be useful in predicting(More)

Reaction of P-dimethylaminophosphonic acid bis(1-methylhydrazide) (6) with trimethyl orthobenzoate gave 1,2,5,6-tetrahydro-1,5-dimethyl-6-(N,N-dimethylamino)-6-phenyl-1,2,4,5,6-tetrazaphosphorine-6-oxide (7), which was subsequently oxidized to the corresponding P-diemthylamino-6-phosphaverdazyl (5) as a persistent radical. Analysis of the electron(More)

Charcoal is an important source of energy and income for millions of people in Africa. Its production often drives forest degradation and deforestation which have impacts on the local people that remain poorly understood. We present a novel methodology for analysing the contribution of woodland ecosystem services (ES) to rural wellbeing and poverty(More)
