β-Agonists fed to animals for human consumption pose a serious threat to human health. Fast, broad-spectrum detection methods are needed for on-site screening of various types of β-agonists from animal feeds, meats, and animal body fluids. We developed a colorimetric assay that uses gold nanoparticle (AuNP) plasmon absorption to realize quick detection of(More)
—This paper aimed at the case of nonisothermal pixels and proposed a daytime temperature-independent spectral indices (TISI) method to retrieve directional emissivity and effective temperature from daytime multiangular observed images in both middle and thermal infrared (MIR and TIR) channels by combining the kernel-driven bidirectional reflectance(More)
—Accurate spectral calibration of the in-flight sensors is crucial for processing and exploration of remotely sensed data. This paper developed a strategy to make spectral recalibration (i.e., spectral response function, central wavelength, and band-width) for in-flight broadband sensor using a device-responsivity-decomposition model with a priori knowledge(More)
A fast and sensitive method was developed for the simutaneous quantitative determination of 16 sulfonamides in animal feeds using ultra-high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS-MS). With the developed method, a feed sample can be analyzed in less than 2 h. A solid phase extraction method using acetonitrile and basic alumina(More)
With the increasing presence of illegal dyes, such as sudan reds and malachite green, in animal feeds and food products during the last few years, there is an urgent need of accurate quantitative determination methods for these illicit compounds. Here we established an accurate method for the simultaneous determination of 15 illegal dyes in animal feeds,(More)
Land surface emissivity is a crucial parameter in the surface status monitoring. This study aims at the evaluation of four directional emissivity models, including two bi-directional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) models and two gap-frequency-based models. Results showed that the kernel-driven BRDF model could well represent directional emissivity(More)
The radiometric performance of remotely-sensed images is important for the applications of such data in monitoring land surface, ocean and atmospheric status. One requirement placed on the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) onboard Landsat 8 was that the noise-equivalent change in temperature (NEΔT) should be ≤0.4 K at 300 K for its two thermal infrared bands.(More)
