In this paper we are interested in the approximation of continuous surface texture profiles defined only at discretely obtained points. A continuous representation is required in order to be able to apply filtration methods that assume uniform data spacing to practical data that in general is not uniformly spaced. By reconstructing surface profiles as(More)
We examine how the wavenumber influences the compression in a wavelet boundary element method for the Helmholtz equation. We show that for wavelets with high vanishing moments the number of nonzeros in the resulting compressed matrix is approximately proportional to the square of the wavenumber. When the wavenumber is fixed, the wavelet boundary element(More)
Evolution of cold dry snow and firn plays important roles in glaciology; however, the physical formulation of a densification law is still an active research topic. We forced eight firn-densification models and one seasonal-snow model in six different experiments by imposing step changes in temperature and accumulation-rate boundary conditions; all of the(More)
In this study, we conduct a spatial analysis of soil total phosphorus (TP), acid extractable phosphate (PO4) and the stable oxygen (O) isotope ratio within the PO4 molecule (δ18OPO4 ) from an intensively managed agricultural grassland site. Total P in the soil was found to range from 736 to 1952 mg P kg- 1, of which between 12 and 48% was extractable using(More)
