This paper proposes a method that solves the problem of geometric calibration of microphone arrays. We consider a distributed system, in which each array is controlled by separate acquisition devices that do not share a common synchronization clock. Given a set of probing sources, e.g. loudspeakers, each array computes an estimate of the source locations(More)
An approach to derive relationships for defining land degradation and desertification risk and developing appropriate tools for assessing the effectiveness of the various land management practices using indicators is presented in the present paper. In order to investigate which indicators are most effective in assessing the level of desertification risk, a(More)
In this paper we present a methodology for the self-calibration of two microphone arrays based on the localization of acoustic sources from volumetric acoustic maps, one for each array. A set of correspondences are obtained moving the acoustic source at different locations in space. The proposed algorithm estimates the rigid motion that brings the(More)
Indicator-based approaches are often used to monitor land degradation and desertification from the global to the very local scale. However, there is still little agreement on which indicators may best reflect both status and trends of these phenomena. In this study, various processes of land degradation and desertification have been analyzed in 17 study(More)
Sub-fs X-ray pulse generation in kilometre-scale FEL facilities will require sub-fs long-term timing stability between optical sources over kilometer distances. We present here key developments towards a completely fiber-coupled, pulsed optical timing distribution system capable of delivering such stability. First, we developed a novel 1.2-km(More)
