The CALMET/CALPUFF modeling system was applied to estimate the air quality impacts of power plants in 2000 and 2008 in Beijing, and the intake fractions (IF) were calculated to see the public health risks posed. Results show that in 2000 the high emission contribution induced a relatively small contribution to average ambient concentration and a significant(More)
This paper presents a new modeling framework for tool wear monitoring in machining processes using hidden Markov models (HMMs). Feature vectors are extracted from vibration signals measured during turning. A codebook is designed and used for vector quantization to convert the feature vectors into a symbol sequence for the hidden Markov model. A series of(More)
China is undergoing rapid urbanization because of unprecedented economic growth. As a result, many cities suffer from air pollution. Two-thirds of China's cities have not attained the ambient air quality standards applicable to urban residential areas (Grade II). Particulate matter (PM), rather than sulfur dioxide (SO2), is the major pollutant reflecting(More)

Psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin disorder, is characterized by aberrant keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation in the epidermis. Although the pathogenesis of psoriasis is still incompletely understood, both genetic susceptibilities and environmental triggers are known to act as key players in its development. Several studies have suggested(More)
China is taking major steps to improve Beijing’s air quality for the 2008 Olympic Games. However, concentrations of fine particulate matter and ozone in Beijing often exceed healthful levels in the summertime. Based on the US EPA’s Models-3/CMAQ model simulation over the Beijing region, we estimate that about 34% of PM2.5 on average and 35–60% of ozone(More)
In the last 10 yr, Beijing has made a great effort to improve its air quality. However, it is still suffering from regional coarse particulate matter (PM10) pollution that could be a challenge to the promise of clean air during the 2008 Olympics. To provide scientific guidance on regional air pollution control, the Mesoscale Modeling System Generation 5(More)
The concentration of chlorophyll a (chl-a) are widely used to indicate trophic state of inland lakes. Using Taihu Lake, China as a case study and MODIS images as data resources, this paper focuses on developing and applying MODIS algorithms to detect the changes of chlorophyll a concentration in Taihu Lake. Field survey data and MODIS images are acquired in(More)
Forest fires cause a significant damage for public property by destroying a large tract of forest. Forest fire risk assessment, which based on an integrated index, becomes an important tool for forest fires management. The integrated index includes the information about fuel, topography and weather condition which constitute potential fire environment(More)
The method of capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) with direct UV detection was developed for the determination of oleanolic acid, ursolic acid, quercetin and apigenin. and then for the first time successfully applied to the analysis of four analytes in Swertia mussotii Franch and its preparations. Various factors affecting the CZE procedure were(More)
This paper examines Beijing air quality in the winter and summer of 2001 using an integrated air quality modeling system (Fifth Generation Mesoscale Meteorological Model [MM5]/Community Multiscale Air Quality [CMAQ]) in nested mode. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Transport and Chemical Evolution over the Pacific (TRACE-P) emission(More)
