[1] Thirty-three snowpack models of varying complexity and purpose were evaluated across a wide range of hydrometeorological and forest canopy conditions at five Northern Hemisphere locations, for up to two winter snow seasons. Modeled estimates of snow water equivalent (SWE) or depth were compared to observations at forest and open sites at each location.(More)
Xylose fermentation is necessary for the bioconversion of lignocellulose to ethanol as fuel, but wild-type Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains cannot fully metabolize xylose. Several efforts have been made to obtain microbial strains with enhanced xylose fermentation. However, xylose fermentation remains a serious challenge because of the complexity of(More)
Preserving the edges in depth compression is important for improving the synthesized view quality, this paper presents a novel edge-preserving depth up-sampling method for down/up sampling-based depth coding using both the texture and depth information. We take into account the edge similarity between depth maps and their corresponding texture images as(More)
View synthesis technology generates virtual views for display and high quality virtual view is of significantimportance to free-viewpoint TV (FTV) and three dimensional video(3DV). This paper proposes a novel virtual view synthesis method in multi-view system based on multi-view plus depth. Firstly, we project two reference depth maps to the intermediate(More)
The emergence of depth sensor facilitates the real-time and low-cost depth capture. However, the quality of its depth map is still inadequate for further applications due to holes, noises and artifacts existing within its depth information. In this paper, we propose an iterative depth boundary refinement framework to recover Kinect depth map. We extract(More)
