—The early detection of faulty batteries is a critical work in the manufacturing processes of a secondary rechargeable battery. Conventional approaches use original performance degradation profiles of remaining capacity after recharge in order to detect faulty batteries. However, original degradation profiles with right-truncated test duration may not be(More)
To assess the algicidal effects of the thiazolidinedione derivative TD49 on the unarmored dinoflagellate Heterocapsa circularisquama and to evaluate the response of the planktonic community and the environment to this chemical, we undertook mesocosm (1,300 L) and small-scale experiments. The reduction ratio for H. circularisquama in each experiment was(More)
The algicidal effects of the thiazolidinedione derivative TD49 on Heterosigma akashiwo and Chattonella marina (Raphidophyceae) were assessed, and the response of the planktonic community and environment to the algicide was evaluated in a microcosm, quantifying 12 L. The abundance of over 80 % of H. akashiwo and C. marina declined in a day significantly in(More)
In order to evaluate the potential to control the fish-killing dinoflagellate Cochlodinium polykrikoides, we compared the algicidal effects of the thiazolidinedione derivative TD49 with those of yellow clay in 10-L microcosms. The responses of higher trophic level marine organisms and microbial loop communities to the algicide were also evaluated. In the(More)
Heterosigma akashiwo and Chattonella species (Raphidophyceae) are difficult to detect and quantify in environmental samples because of their pleomorphic and fragile cell nature. In this study, we developed a quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) assay for the enumeration of these algal taxa using a new DNA-binding dye, EvaGreen.(More)
Culture experiments involving 23 algae strains were conducted to evaluate the algicidal effects of a newly developed algicidal thiazolidinedione (TD) derivative (TD49) on non-harmful and harmful algal bloom (HAB) species. We also assessed the effect of various concentrations of TD49 on various growth phases (lag, logarithmic, and stationary) of the harmful(More)
Near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is a rapid, non-destructive technology to predict a variety of wood properties and provides great opportunities to optimize manufacturing processes through the realization of in-line assessment of forest products. In this paper, a novel multivariate regression procedure, the hybrid model of principal component regression(More)
We examined the effects of the algicide thiazolidinedione (TD49) and yellow clay on Chattonella marina and assessed their ecological risk for the entire planktonic community. Mesocosm (1000 L) exposure experiments were employed to investigate time-course responses over 9 days. The growth of C. marina was controlled at ≥0.4 μM TD49 but not inhibited in(More)
