Sea surface reservoir ages must be known to establish a common chronological framework for marine, continental, and cryospheric paleoproxies, and are crucial for understanding ocean-continent climatic relationships and the paleoventilation of the ocean. Radiocarbon dates of planktonic foraminifera and tephra contemporaneously deposited over Mediterranean(More)
C-shaped canals are mostly found in mandibular second molars. Studies have shown that frequency ranges from 2.7 to 31%. This study was undertaken to provide further knowledge of the distribution of such canal anatomy, by determining the frequency of C-shaped canals in a sample representing the Lebanese population. Ninety-four mandibular second molars with(More)
—This work proposes a new economic approach that can form a cost-benefit-risk basis for optimum decision making for systems with prognostic capabilities, and a method to assess the value of PHM for its user after a prognostic indication. PHM potentially enables performance based logistics, condition-based maintenance, and reduced life cycle cost. When an(More)
This paper provides an optimization model based on Real Options (RO) and stochastic dynamic programming for the availability maximization of an offshore wind farm with prognostic capabilities. Alternative energy sources such as offshore wind turbines are promising technologies, but they are capital intensive projects, and the economics of the project depend(More)
