Forest thinning is expected to affect tree water use and carbon assimilation, but the related influence from climate variability is little known. Recent forest thinning in the Wungong catchment coincided with a record dry year following the thinning, which provides a rare opportunity to understand the climate influence on the thinning effect.

—In this paper, we consider a molecular diffusion based communications link that can reliably transport data over-the-air. We show that the system can also reliably transport data across confined structural environments, especially in cases where conventional electromagnetic (EM) wave based systems may fail. In particular, this paper compares the(More)
A power control algorithm based on non-cooperative game for wireless sensor networks is presented to regulate the appropriate transmit power and satisfy the maximum requirement of network utility. In these networks, the appropriate transmission power is selected to improve the network topology, reduce the collisions, increase good put and confirm the(More)
Molecular communications between mobile nano-robots will likely yield bit transposition errors. In such a scenario, it is important to design and test a new family of appropriate forward-error-correction codes. In this paper, we first construct a proof-of-concept robot to demonstrate how transposition errors arise. We then review state-of-the-art research(More)
—In this paper, we consider a molecular diffusion based communications link that conveys information on the macro-scale (several metres). The motivation is to apply molecular-based communications to challenging electromagnetic environments. We first derive a novel capture probability expression of a finite sized receiver. The paper then introduces the(More)
This paper presents an approach for visual tracking, consisting of two combination modules, which are global detector and local image patch matching. The former gives the classification response for each object candidate specified by the sliding window in the searching region. The classification can be performed by any global detector, which is based on the(More)

An area of interest in the modern age is the human migration from rural areas to cities. Cities are characterized by a dense concentration of buildings and key infrastructures. However, what has been lacking is a pervasive sensor technology that can monitor the performance of these structures. Partly, this is due to the fact that the information collected(More)
