With the development of remote sensing techniques, parameters of individual trees for forest inventory can be extracted efficiently from high-resolution remote sensing imagery or LiDAR (light detection and ranging) data rather than using field surveys [1]-[4]. As a prerequisite step, individual tree crown (ITC) delineation from highresolution imagery or(More)
Canopy height model (CHM) derived from LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) data has been commonly used to generate segments of individual tree crowns for forest inventory and sustainable management. However, branches, tree crowns, and tree clusters usually have similar shapes and overlapping sizes, which cause current individual tree crown delineation(More)
Spinel lithium titanate (Li4Ti5O12, LTO) is applied as an epitaxial coating layer on LiMn2O4 hollow microspheres (LMO) through solvothermal-assisted processing. The epitaxial interface between LTO and LMO can be clearly observed by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) and high angle annular dark field scanning transmission electron(More)
Forest species are critical information for forest inventory and management. Conventionally, automatic species classification in forest is mainly conducted based on the spectral information in remote sensing imagery such as multispectral satellite imagery (e.g. [1], [2]). However, due to atmospheric conditions, illumination geometry, and optical properties(More)
Silicon nitride microsprings with superelasticity are characterized using SEM, XRD, TEM and micro-Raman methods. The internal structure and the superelastic mechanism of silicon nitride microsprings are proposed through analyzing the variation of Raman peaks upon stretching gradually. During the stretching process, since all the vibrations are internal(More)
From April to July of 2003–2005, we investigated habitat selection of breeding brown eared-pheasants (Crossoptilon mantchuricum) in the Xiaowutaishan National Nature Reserve, Hebei Province. Our results show that brown eared-pheasants preferred deciduous-coniferous mixed or deciduous forests with altitudes ranging from 1600 to 2200 m, steep gradients of(More)
As we know, Li(+)-ion transport in layered LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2 (NCM) is through two-dimensional channels parallel to the Li(+)-ion layers that are indexed as {010} active planes. In this paper, NCM nanoplates with exposed {010} active facets are synthesized in a polyol medium (ethylene glycol) and characterized by XRD, XPS, SEM, and HR-TEM. In addition, the(More)
Three series of H2S donors based on NSAIDs were synthesized and characterized by 1H-NMR, IR and ESI-HRMS. The H2S-release abilities of all compounds were evaluated in the presence of TECP or cysteine. The results show all compounds were fast H2S-releasers, and their half-lives were in range of 0-20 min. Under the same condition, H2S released from compound 9(More)
3D hierarchical Bi2S3 architectures have been successfully synthesized via a simple and effective hydrothermal process. The as-prepared Bi2S3 samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), nitrogen adsorptiondesorption isotherms, and UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectrum(More)
