Five streams in catchments with pastoral dairy farming as the dominant land useweremonitored for periods of 7–16 years to detect changes in response to adoption of best management practices (BMPs). Stream water quality was degraded at the start with respect to N, P, suspended solids (SS) and E. coli concentrations, and was typical of catchments with(More)

However the usefulness of ultrasound imaging is degraded by the presence of signal depended noise known as speckle. Removing speckle noise from the original image is still a challenging research in image processing.(More)

Cities in developing countries like India are facing some of the same concerns that North American cities are: congestion and urban growth. However, the concern in cities like New Delhi, India is that this growth is far more rapid as both urbanization and motorization are ongoing processes that have not yet peaked. Furthermore air quality in major Indian(More)
