In this paper, the new challenges of 3DTV for subjective assessment are discussed. Conventional 2D methods have severe limitations which will be revealed. Based on the understanding of the new characteristics brought by 3DTV, changes and additions in the requirements for subjective assessment are proposed in order to develop a novel subjective video quality(More)
Modern stereoscopic 3DTV brings new QoE (quality of experience) to viewers, which not only enhances the 3D sensation due to the added binocular depth, but may also induce new problems such as visual discomfort. Subjective quality assessment is the conventional method to assess the QoE. However, the conventional perceived image quality concept is not enough(More)
Compared to traditional 2D image techniques, stereoscopic techniques provide additional information-the binocular depth, which strongly enhances the immersion. However, it may also cause visual comfort problems because it is still not a perfect representation of natural human vision but to some extent an illusion. How to fairly evaluate and understand the(More)
Since the end of the Little Ice Age (LIA), Svalbard glaciers have undergone a net retreat in response to changing meteorological conditions. Located between 76°N and 80°N, western Spitsbergen has seen a climatic transition from a glacial to a paraglacial system. On the northern shore of the Brøgger Peninsula (northwest Spitsbergen), the average temperature(More)
The highly fragmented landscape structures of coastal salinas are known to result in decreased terrestrial bird abundance, species richness and diversity but to promote original assemblages dominated by specialist species, such as the Bluethroat Luscinia svecica namnetum. This species is mainly found at the core of these salinas, where the landscape(More)
The potential of ecosystem engineers to modify the structure and dynamics of food webs has recently been hypothesised from a conceptual point of view. Empirical data on the integration of ecosystem engineers and food webs is however largely lacking. This paper investigates the hypothesised link based on a field sampling approach of intertidal biogenic(More)
