Estimating the flows of rivers can have significant economic impact, as this can help in agricultural water management and in protection from water shortages and possible flood damage. The first goal of this paper is to apply neural networks to the problem of forecasting the flow of the River Nile in Egypt. The second goal of the paper is to utilize the(More)
This work describes the results of initial evaluation of a wideband acousto-optic hydrophone probe designed to operate as point receiver in the frequency range up to 100 MHz. The hydrophone was implemented as a tapered fiber optic (FO) probe sensor with a tip diameter of approximately 7 microm. Such small physical dimensions of the sensor eliminate the need(More)
Data clustering algorithms play an important role in effectively navigating, summarizing, and organizing information. Inspired by the self-organized behaviour of bird flocks, a new dynamic clustering approach based on Particle Swarm Optimization is proposed. In this paper, we introduced the PSDC approach, new particle swarm-like agents for multidimensional(More)
Attraction of Ditylenchus dipsaci and Pratylenchus penetrans to a temperature gradient was tested. Heating wires, infrared radiations and germinating alfalfa seeds were used to create a temperature gradient as small as 0.033 C/cm in agar. P. penetrans, D. dipsaci, and Tylenchorhynchus claytoni responded to a temperature gradient of 0.033 C over a 4-cm(More)
The primary objective of this work was to develop and optimize the calibration techniques for ultrasonic hydrophone probes used in acoustic field measurements up to 100 MHz. A dependable, 100 MHz calibration method was necessary to examine the behavior of a sub-millimeter spatial resolution fiber optic (FO) sensor and assess the need for such a sensor as an(More)
The problem of detecting and tracking SPAMM tags has been the focus of cardiac MRI in the past few years. Among the many methods proposed to do that, the harmonic phase method (called HARP) has a large potential to enable real-time tracking. We propose two improvements to the original HARP technique to address the problem of magnetic field inhomogeneity and(More)
