In component-based software development, it is necessary to measure the reusability of components in order to realize the reuse of components effectively. There are some product metrics for measuring the reusability of Object-Oriented software. However, in application development with reuse, it is difficult to use conventional metrics because the source(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurological disorder that has a considerable impact on the health of the elderly. Although oxidative stress has been implicated in the early stage of this disease, its detailed pathogenesis and therapeutic targets remain unknown. The diagnosis, particularly at the early stage, is important. In the present study, the levels of(More)
Synergistic applications of multi-resolution satellite data have been of a great interest among user communities for the development of an improved and more effective operational monitoring system of natural resources, including vegetation and soil. In this study, we conducted an inter-comparison of two remote sensing products, namely, visible/near-infrared(More)
1. BACKGROUND Rapidly changing environments of urban region impact local and regional energy balance, resulting in phenomenon of heat islands. One of the major factors is less amount of evaporative cooling by vegetation in cities than surrounding rural regions. Thus, a key to an estimation of mitigation effects by green vegetation is accurate retrieval of(More)
