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 ...
Drinking motives and links to alcohol use in 13 european countries
(Alcohol Research Documentation, Inc., 2014-05-01)
Objective: The purpose of this study was to test the structure and endorsement of drinking motives and their links to alcohol use among 11- to 19-year-olds from 13 European countries. Method: Confirmatory factor analysis, ...
Protein charge determination and implications for interactions in cell extracts
Decades of dilute-solution studies have revealed the influence of charged residues on protein stability, solubility and stickiness. Similar characterizations are now required in physiological solutions to understand the ...
Grey and white matter abnormalities in temporal lobe epilepsy with and without mesial temporal sclerosis
(Springer Nature, 2013-06-11)
Temporal lobe epilepsy with (TLE-mts) and without (TLE-no) mesial temporal sclerosis display different patterns of cortical neuronal loss, suggesting that the distribution of white matter damage may also differ between the ...
Applying near infrared spectroscopy and ipls to quantitative analysis of phb, poly-p, and gly in denitrifying phosphorus removal
(HARD Publishing Company, 2018-03-05)
Near infrared spectroscopy and interval partial least-squares (iPLS) were applied to rapid quantitative analysis of thepoly-beta-hydroxybutyrate (PHB), polyphosphate (Poly-P), and glycogen (Gly) during denitrifying phosphorus ...
U-q((G) over cap) Heisenberg families
(Informa UK Limited, 2011-01-01)
We explicitly describe Heisenberg families of elements in an arbitrary grading subspaces of the quantized universal enveloping algebra U-q((G) over cap) of an affine Kac-Moody algebra (G) over cap in the Drinfeld formulation.
Near-surface diurnal warming simulations: validation with high resolution profile measurements
(Copernicus GmbH, 2013-11-19)
Sea surface temperature (SST) is an important property for governing the exchange of energy between the ocean and the atmosphere. Common in situ methods of measuring SST often require a cool-skin and warm-layer adjustment ...
Stochastic permanence, stationary distribution and extinction of a single-species nonlinear diffusion system with random perturbation
(Hindawi Limited, 2014-01-01)
We analyze the influence of stochastic perturbations on a single-species logistic model with the population's nonlinear diffusion among.. patches. First, we show that this system has a unique positive solution. Then we ...
Towards linked open gene mutations data
(Springer Nature, 2012-01-01)
Background: With the advent of high-throughput technologies, a great wealth of variation data is being produced. Such information may constitute the basis for correlation analyses between genotypes and phenotypes and, in ...
Numerical simulation of stent angioplasty with predilation: an investigation into lesion constitutive representation and calcification influence
(Springer Nature, 2017-05-09)
It is acceptable clinical practice to predilate a severely occluded vessel to allow better positioning of endovascular stents, and while the impact of this intervention has been examined for aggregate response in animals ...
