While abundant evidence indicates that honeybees and hymenopterous parasitoids are capable of learning visual pattems in association with a reward (reviews by Gould, 1993; Srinivasan, 1994; W~ickers and Lewis, 1994; W~ickers, 1994), relatively little evidence is available for other insects (but see Dill et al., 1993). Studies of pattern recognition outside(More)
The Distributed Integrated Ocean Prediction System (DIOPS) is a PC-based wave, tide and surf prediction system designed to provide DoD accurate and timely surf predictions for essentially any world-wide location. Regional and coastal wave predictions are made by the Simulating Waves Nearshore (SWAN) wave module that is typically initialized by offshore(More)
The High Fidelity Simulation of Littoral Environments (HFSoLE) Challenge Project (C75) encompasses a suite of seven oceanographic models ccpable of exchanging information in a physically meaningful sense across the littoral environment. This project is leveraging and extending state-of-the-art atmospheric, oceanographic, estuarine, riverine, surface(More)
Two-way fully-coupled ESMF (Earth System Modeling Framework) COAMPS® (Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System) simulations of the Adriatic Sea bora were performed to compare to observational data from several recent field studies as well as to an uncoupled simulation. Results show that latent and sensible heat fluxes were superior in the fully(More)
The public repotting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour pet response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of(More)
The long–term goal is to allow ocean modelers to efficiently and rapidly visualize the output of their ocean models by effectively exploiting large scale computing environments. This necessitates a distributed, parallel, concurrent visualization system. The modeler should be able to seamlessly view and explore an evolving ocean model in an immersive virtual(More)
The goal of the Battlespace Environments Institute (BEI) is to integrate Earth and space modeling capabilities into a seamless, whole-Earth common modeling infrastructure that facilitates interservice development of multiple, mission-specific environmental simulations and supports battlefield decisions, improves interoperability, and reduces operating costs.
