The MapReduce framework has been generating a lot of interest in a wide range of areas. It has been widely adopted in industry and has been used to solve a number of non-trivial problems in academia. Putting MapReduce on strong theoretical foundations is crucial in understanding its capabilities. This work links MapReduce to the BSP model of computation,(More)
The ID3 (Iterative Dichotomiser 3) algorithm, introduced by Quinlan (Quinlan, 1986), (Baldwin, Lawry, & Martin) is a very effective method for the creation of decision trees expressing information stored by crisp logic data sets (data values in an attribute can only belong to a finite amount of categories). This algorithm has been the basis for several(More)
Cryogenic vacuum extraction is the well-established method of extracting water from soil for isotopic analyses of waters moving through the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. We investigate if soils can alter the isotopic composition of water through isotope memory effects, and determined which mechanisms are responsible for it. Soils with differing(More)
