The concept of GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) as an open system has created a favorable environment for integration of process based modeling and GIS. To support this integration a new generation of tools is being developed in the following areas: a) interpolation from multidimensional scattered point data, b) analysis of surfaces and(More)
Regularized Spline with Tension (RST) is an accurate, flexible and efficient method for multivariate interpolation of scattered data. This study evaluates its capabilities to interpolate daily and annual mean precipitation in regions with complex terrain. Tension, smoothing and anisotropy parameters are optimized using the cross-validation technique. In(More)
Over the past two decades, continuum quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) has proved to be an invaluable tool for predicting of the properties of matter from fundamental principles. By solving the Schrödinger equation through a stochastic projection, it achieves the greatest accuracy and reliability of methods available for physical systems containing more than a few(More)
— Application of spline approximation method to computation and analysis of lidar-based digital elevation models is investigated to determine its accuracy and capability to create surfaces at different levels of detail. Quadtree segmentation that adapts to the spatial heterogeneity of data points makes the method feasible for large data sets. The results(More)
L and surface topography forms the boundary between the solid earth, atmosphere, and hydrosphere. It controls air, water, and mass fluxes; redistributes solar irradiation; and, consequently, has a major influence on physical processes, ecosystems, and human activities. Understanding topography—its character , properties, and human interaction—is, therefore,(More)
A method is presented to treat electrons within the many-body quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) approach "on-the-fly" throughout a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Our approach leverages the large (10-100) ratio of the QMC electron to MD ion motion to couple the stochastic, imaginary-time electronic and real-time ionic trajectories. This continuous evolution of(More)
