ABSTRACT Incentive-based programs to reduce deforestation are expected to play an increasingly important role in global efforts to protect ecosystems and sequester carbon but their(More)
PURPOSE Flattening filter free (FFF) beams generated by medical linear accelerators have recently started to be used in radiotherapy clinical practice. Such beams present fundamental differences with respect to the standard filter flattened (FF) beams, making the generally used dosimetric parameters and definitions not always viable. The present study will(More)
Payments for ecosystem services (PES) programs are likely to expand in developing countries under international agreements to reduce carbon emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, but empirical evidence on possible environment-poverty tradeoffs is extremely limited. We investigate two dimensions of impacts for a federal program in Mexico that(More)
A new lithostrotian sauropod, the small-sized Overosaurus paradasorum n. gen et sp. from the Anacleto Formation (Campanian, Late Cretaceous, Neuquén Group, Patagonia, Argentina) is here described. The specimen (MAU-Pv-CO-439) consists of a fully articulated vertebral series from the 10th cervical to the 20th caudal vertebra, the last cervical ribs, several(More)
Analysis of saccadic eyes movements is fundamental for study different neurological disorders. The Center of Research and Rehabilitation of Hereditary Ataxias (CIRAH) located in Holguín, Cuba; uses these techniques to study the evolution of many different ataxias. Current available software applications doesn't fill the requirements needed by CIRAH's staff(More)
This paper develops a proposal for designing a SCADA system for the supervision of a photovoltaic generation system using IEC 61850 and ISA S101 international standards, and industrial communication protocols such as Modbus TCP and OPC. The complete description of the elements of the generating system and communication architecture for this, based on the(More)
