A review on reflective remote sensing and data assimilation techniques for enhanced agroecosystem modeling
An overview of different methods that can be used to derive biophysical and biochemical canopy state variables from optical remote sensing data in the VNIR-SWIR regions and the prevailing techniques of assimilatingRemote sensing data into agroecosystem models are outlined. Expand
Calibration and validation of DRAINMOD to design subsurface drainage systems for Iowa's tile landscapes
Abstract The study presents the potential use of existing common data sources such as a soil database, and techniques such as a pedotransfer function and a non-linear parameter estimator to calibrateExpand
Water productivity analysis of irrigated crops in Sirsa district, India
Abstract Water productivity (WP) expresses the value or benefit derived from the use of water, and includes essential aspects of water management such as production for arid and semi-arid regions. AExpand
The water footprint of hydroelectricity: a methodological comparison from a case study in New Zealand
Abstract Hydroelectricity has been rated to have a large water footprint (WF) on global average. We assessed the WF of hydroelectricity by three different methods using New Zealand as a case study.Expand
Structural insights into fusidic acid resistance and sensitivity in EF-G.
The crystal structures of two mutants of Thermus thermophilus EF-G, G16V and T84A, which exhibit FA hypersensitivity and resistance in vitro, respectively are presented, substantiate the importance of the domain G/domain III/domain V interfaces as a key component of the FA binding site. Expand
Predicting effects of drainage water management in Iowa's subsurface drained landscapes
Abstract Long-term hydrologic simulations are presented predicting the effects of drainage water management on subsurface drainage, surface runoff and crop production in Iowa's subsurface drainedExpand
Crystal structure of a mutant elongation factor G trapped with a GTP analogue
The crystal structure provides a first insight into conformational changes induced in EF‐G by GTP, and suggests that the GTP and GDP conformations in solution are very similar and that the major contribution to the active GTPase conformation comes from its interaction with the ribosome. Expand
Antileishmanial amides and lignans from Piper cubeba and Piper retrofractum
The n-hexane, ethyl acetate, methanol, and acetone extracts of Piper cubeba Linn. and P. retrofractum Vahl. (Piperaceae) were evaluated in vitro against promastigotes of Leishmania donovani, and allExpand
Zoonotic cases of camelpox infection in India.
Considering the emerging and re-emerging nature of the virus, its genetic relatedness to VARV, zoonotic potential and productivity losses in camels; the control measures are imperative in curtailing economic and public health impact of the disease. Expand
Study of indices for drought characterization in KBK districts in Orissa (India)
Drought is a temporary, random and regional climatic phenomenon, originating due to lack of precipitation leading to water deficit and causing economic loss. Success in drought alleviation depends onExpand
