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)
We have designed Global Earth Observation(GEO) Grid, which is an infrastructure for archiving and processing huge satellite imagery and GIS geographical data sets. Users can immediately access the full archive and process the desired data areas on demand using the latest calibration and analysis algorithms through standardized web services interfaces on(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)
radicals. This requirement represents a major drawback in terms of atom economy and waste production. To address this limitation, Nicewicz and MacMillan have investigated ruthenium bipyridine complexes, which are well-established photoredox catalysts. Under irradiation with blue light, tris(bipyridine)ruthenium(II), Ru(bpy) 3 2+ , forms a more reactive(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)
