Over the past 100 years, the global average temperature has increased by approximately 0.6 degrees C and is projected to continue to rise at a rapid rate. Although species have responded to climatic changes throughout their evolutionary history, a primary concern for wild species and their ecosystems is this rapid rate of change. We gathered information on(More)
By a combination of aggressive packaging and electrical design, protocol innovations, and extensive pipelining Gigaplane achieves higher bandwidth, higher transaction throughput and lower latency than other competing buses, while providing support for up to 30 UltraSPARC processors. In addition to high performance features, the modular system structure(More)
This paper presents an approach for real-time multivehicle tracking and counting under fisheye camera based on simple feature points tracking, grouping and association. Different from traditional cameras, the main challenge under fisheye cameras is that the objects being tracked suffer from severe distortion and perspective effects in even adjacent frames.(More)
Many biological, hydrological, and geological processes are interactively linked in ecosystems. These ecological phenomena normally vary within bounded ranges, but rapid, nonlinear changes to markedly different conditions can be triggered by even small differences if threshold values are exceeded. Intrinsic and extrinsic ecological thresholds can lead to(More)
— A position sensitive radiation sensor was modeled, developed and fabricated then interfaced with a field programmable gate array (FPGA) to create a radiation hardened computing platform. The system exploits environmental information from the sensor in order to determine regions within the FPGA that may have been affected by radiation. The spatial(More)

Partners in Flight (PIF) is a consortium of professional and volunteer scientists and educators that promotes the conservation of landbird species. Central to the PIF conservation effort is the development of Bird Conservation Plans specific to each physiographic region of the United States. Without a coordinated priori-tization of research needs, land(More)
INTRODUCTION: In a July 9, 2001 memorandum to the District Superintendents and executive policy staff (see attached), Deputy Director Dick Troy indicated Director Areias' interest in addressing the need for off-leash dog parks in urban areas. After speaking with Senator Jackie Speier, the Director indicated his interest in testing a small number of pilot(More)
