Short-term forecasting of coastal surface currents using high frequency radar data and artificial neural networks
(MDPI AG, 2018-05-31)
Accurate and timely information of surface currents is crucial for various operations such as search and rescue, marine renewable energy extraction and oil spill treatment. Conventional approaches to study coastal surface ...
A comparison of emotion annotation approaches for text
(MDPI AG, 2018-05-11)
While the recognition of positive/negative sentiment in text is an established task with many standard data sets and well developed methodologies, the recognition of a more nuanced affect has received less attention: there ...
A module on learning technologies for teachers in higher education
(Istituto per le Tecnologie Didattiche and Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche ITDCNR, 2018-03-06)
This paper describes a 10 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS ) module in Learning Technologies which forms part of a Post Graduate Diploma in Academic Practice, part of a professional development framework ...
Tailorable drug capacity of dexamethasone-loaded conducting polymer matrix
(IOP Publishing, 2018-05-01)
The unique properties of conducting polymers, which are in the same time biocompatible and electrically responsive materials, make them perfect candidates for controlled drug release systems. In this study, the ...
Multiwavelength observations of the blazar bl lacertae: a new fast tev gamma-ray flare
(American Astronomical Society, 2018-03-28)
Combined with measurements made by very-long-baseline interferometry, the observations of fast TeV gamma-ray flares probe the structure and emission mechanism of blazar jets. However, only a handful of such flares have ...
Dyke-davidoff-masson syndrome presenting with bipolar i mania with psychosis
A strong limit on the very-high-energy emission from grb 150323a
(American Astronomical Society, 2018-04-10)
On 2015 March 23, the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System (VERITAS) responded to a Swift-Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) detection of a gamma-ray burst, with observations beginning 270 s after the onset of ...
Veritas observations of the bl lac object txs 0506+056
(American Astronomical Society, 2018-07-12)
On 2017 September 22, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory reported the detection of the high-energy neutrino event IC 170922A, of potential astrophysical origin. It was soon determined that the neutrino direction was consistent ...
Open-ended coaxial probe technique for dielectric measurement of biological tissues: challenges and common practices
(MDPI AG, 2018-06-05)
Electromagnetic (EM) medical technologies are rapidly expanding worldwide for both diagnostics and therapeutics. As these technologies are low-cost and minimally invasive, they have been the focus of significant research ...
Evolutionary trade-offs associated with loss of pmrb function in host-adapted pseudomonas aeruginosa
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-06)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonises the upper airway of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, providing a reservoir of host-adapted genotypes that subsequently establish chronic lung infection. We previously experimentally-evolved ...
