A new version of a real-time global flood monitoring system (GFMS) driven by Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Multisatellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) rainfall has been developed and implemented using a physically based hydrologic model. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the performance of this new version of the GFMS in terms of flood(More)
INTRODUCTION Visceral larva migrans is a syndrome caused by an infection with larval helminths, which may result in partial or general pathological changes in host tissues. Due to the difficulty in finding the causative parasites, the diagnosis of visceral larva migrans is generally based on compatible clinical signs, epidemic history, marked eosinophilia(More)
We are concerned with interval constraints: solving constraints among real unknowns in such a way that soundness is not aaected by rounding errors. The contraction operator for the constraint x + y = z can simply be expressed in terms of interval arithmetic. An attempt to use the analogous deenition for x y = z fails if the usual deenitions of interval(More)
The immune response is highly active in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Identification of genetic risk contributed by immune genes to AD may provide essential insight for the prognosis, diagnosis, and treatment of this neurodegenerative disease. In this study, we performed a genetic screening for AD-related top immune genes identified in Europeans in a Chinese(More)
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) content plays an important role in energy production and sustaining normal physiological function. A decline in the mtDNA content and subsequent dysfunction cause various senile diseases, with decreasing mtDNA content observed in the elderly individuals with age-related diseases. In contrast, the oldest old individuals, for(More)
Breathwalk is a science of combining specific patterns of footsteps synchronized with the breathing. In this study, we developed a multimedia-assisted Breathwalk-aware system which detects user's walking and breathing conditions and provides appropriate multimedia guidance on the smartphone. Through the mobile device, the system enhances user's awareness of(More)
12 A widely used land surface model, the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) model, is coupled 13 with a newly developed hierarchical dominant river tracing-based runoff-routing model to form 14 the Dominant river tracing-Routing Integrated with VIC Environment (DRIVE) model, which 15 serves as the new core of the real-time Global Flood Monitoring System(More)
