Traditional methods for aerosol retrieval and atmospheric correction of remote sensing data over water surfaces are based on the assumption of zero water reflectance in the near-infrared. Another type of approach which is becoming very popular in atmospheric correction over water is based on the simultaneous retrieval of atmospheric and water parameters(More)
Alterations of the commercially pure titanium (cpTi) surface may be undertaken to improve its biological properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the biocompatibility of cpTi when submitted to a new, porous titanium, surface treatment (porous Ti). Five types of surface treatments, namely sintered microspheres porous titanium (porous Ti),(More)
In this work, a correlation study of monoclonal antibody-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) and a liquid chromatography–electrospray mass spectrometric (HPLC/ESI/MS/MS) method for the determination of N-methylcarbamate insecticides carbofuran, carbaryl and methiocarb in fruit baby food is presented. The comparison of performance(More)
Drylands are one of the most diverse yet highly vulnerable social-ecological systems on Earth. Water scarcity has contributed to high levels of heterogeneity, variability and unpredictability, which together have shaped the long coadaptative process of coupling humans and nature. Land degradation and desertification in drylands are some of the largest and(More)
Non-linear high-power devices produce electromagnetic noise (EMN) sources of great intensity that can disrupt and damage the surrounding electrical equipment and devices. This radiative phenomenon is very common at facilities where pulsed power generators are required, particularly those that are needed to produce dense transient plasma experiments. These(More)
This paper presents a first analysis of MERIS-Full Resolution (FR) data to observe seasonal variations of the reflectances of agricultural fields in two regions with different climatic conditions: Toulouse (France) and Barrax (Castilla-La Mancha, Spain). The objective is to assess the capabilities of MERIS for crop monitoring. After applying an atmospheric(More)
The hydrodistilled oil from the fruits of Bursera tomentosa, obtained in 0.2% yield, was analyzed by GC-MS. Nine components were identified, which made up 99.3% of the oil. The most abundant constituents were cis-ocimene (47.6%), n-nonane (28.2%) and germacrene-D (11.1%). The oil showed antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923),(More)
