—We validate Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) sea surface salinity (SSS) retrieved during August 2010 from the European Space Agency SMOS processing. Biases appear close to land and ice and between ascending and descending orbits; they are linked to image reconstruction issues and instrument calibration and remain under study. We validate the SMOS(More)
Under certain conditions, cross-sectional analysis of cross-twin intertrait correlations can provide important information about the direction of causation (DOC) between two variables. A community-based sample of Australian female twins aged 18 to 45 years was mailed an extensive Health and Lifestyle Questionnaire (HLQ) that covered a wide range of(More)
Reconstruction from structured light can be greatly affected by interreflections between surfaces in the scene. This paper introduces band-pass white noise patterns designed specifically to reduce interreflections, and still be robust to standard challenges in scanning systems such as scene depth discontinuities, defocus and low camera-projector pixel(More)
We present a scanning method that recovers dense sub-pixel camera-projector correspondence without requiring any photometric calibration nor preliminary knowledge of their relative geometry. Subpixel accuracy is achieved by considering several zero-crossings defined by the difference between pairs of unstructured patterns. We use gray-level band-pass white(More)
Reconstruction from structured light can be greatly affected by indirect illumination such as interreflections between surfaces in the scene and sub-surface scattering. This paper introduces band-pass white noise patterns designed specifically to reduce the effects of indirect illumination, and still be robust to standard challenges in scanning systems such(More)
PURPOSE Retinal arteriolar and venular calibers are highly heritable and associated with cardiovascular disease. This study was designed to investigate the relative influence of genetic and environmental factors on the high phenotypic correlation (r = 0.59) between these two traits and to assess the shared and specific influence of established and novel(More)
