—Four radiative transfer equations for Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) bands 11, 12, 13, and 14 are built involving six unknowns (average atmospheric temperature, land surface temperature, and four band emissivities), which is a typical ill-posed problem. The extra equations can be built by using linear or nonlinear(More)
Ovarian cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death for women throughout the Western world. Kaempferol, a natural flavonoid, has shown promise in the chemoprevention of ovarian cancer. A common concern about using dietary supplements for chemoprevention is their bioavailability. Nanoparticles have shown promise in increasing the bioavailability of(More)
The surface air temperature retrievals from the High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS) are evaluated by using observations from the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) for the period of 2006 to 2013. One year of the USCRN data is also used as ground truth in calibrating retrieval biases. The final retrieval results show that mean biases of(More)
Nobiletin is a non-toxic dietary flavonoid that possesses anti-cancer properties. Nobiletin has been reported to reduce the risk of prostate cancer, but the mechanism is not well understood. In this study, we investigated the effects of nobiletin in prostate cancer cell lines PC-3 and DU-145. Nobiletin was isolated from a polymethoxy flavonoid mixture using(More)
Ovarian cancer is one of the primary causes of death for women all through the Western world. Baicalin and baicalein are naturally occurring flavonoids that are found in the roots and leaves of some Chinese medicinal plants and are thought to have antioxidant activity and possible anti-angiogenic, anti-cancer, anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory and(More)

All four chimpanzee sub-species populations are declining due to multiple factors including human-caused habitat loss. Effective conservation efforts are therefore needed to ensure their long-term survival. Habitat suitability models serve as useful tools for conservation planning by depicting relative environmental suitability in geographic space over(More)
Recently, sparse unmixing (SU) of hyperspectral data has received particular attention for analyzing remote sensing images. However, most SU methods are based on the commonly admitted linear mixing model (LMM), which ignores the possible nonlinear effects (i.e., nonlinearity). In this paper, we propose a new method named robust collaborative sparse(More)
—A regression analysis between brightness of all AMSR bands and MODIS land surface temperature product provided by NASA indicated good correlation, so retrieving land surface temperature from AMSR passive data is available without ground truth data (soil moisture and land surface type). The analysis results (North-Africa, NorthEast China, Tibet) indicate(More)
