Previous studies have established that sea surface temperature anomalies (SSTAs) in the tropical Pacific and Atlantic are the main forcing of the interannual variation of the wet season onsets in the Amazon. However, this variation appears to be complex and not uniquely determined by SSTAs. What causes such a complexity and to what extent the interannual(More)
To improve snowpack estimates in Community Land Model version 4 (CLM4), the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) snow cover fraction (SCF) was assimilated into the Community Land Model version 4 (CLM4) via the Data Assimilation Research Testbed (DART). The interface between CLM4 and DART is a flexible, extensible approach to land surface(More)
Object Modeling Technique is widely applied in the field of software engineering; and in this paper we applied this technique to model a mobile robot including its behaviors and interactions with environment. The paper first describes key background knowledge about object oriented analysis in software engineering, behavior based robotics and their(More)
This paper first describes key conceptions about object oriented analysis in software engineering, behavior based robotics and their conceptual similarities. Then, based on these similarities, the paper utilizes object oriented methods of software engineering, such as unified modeling language (UML), to analyze and model the architecture and design(More)
We investigated three locations in Beijing, China, containing different industrial plants that may cause pollution of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The highest soil concentration of 1,000 pg g(-1) (dry wt) was found in the chemical plant. The concentrations of ΣPCBs tended to decrease with distance from each of the investigated sites. The principal(More)
