  • Cuthbert, M.O.; Gleeson, Tom; Reynolds, S.C.; Bennett, M.R.; Newton, A.C.; McCormack, C.J.; Ashely, G.M. (Nature Communications, 2017-05-30)
    Water is a fundamental resource, yet its spatiotemporal availability in East Africa is poorly understood. This is the area where most hominin first occurrences are located, and consequently the potential role of water in ...
  • Keith, D.M.; Johnson, E.A.; Valeo, C. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-07-22)
    The forest floor in many ecosystems consists of a partially decomposed organic layer (duff), which together with the litter layer comprises the boundary between the atmosphere and the mineral soil. Processes controlling ...
  • Mohammadzadeh, Alireza; Struchtrup, Henning (AIP Conference Proceedings, 2016)
    Heat transfer in solids is modeled by deriving the macroscopic equations for phonon transport from the phonon-Boltzmann equation. In these equations, the Callaway model with frequency dependent relaxation time is considered ...
  • Mohammadzadeh, Alireza; Struchtrup, Henning (Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics, 2017)
    Heat transfer in solids is modeled by deriving the macroscopic equations for phonon transport from the phonon-Boltzmann equation. In these equations, the Callaway model with frequency-dependent relaxation time is considered ...
  • Gupta, Rishi (Elsevier, 2013)
    Modern day infrastructure calls for use of impervious surfaces and curb and gutter systems on pavements to rapidly collect and transport rain runoff. Due to this stormwater reaches the receiving water bodies rapidly, in ...
  • Unknown author (Sensors, 2019)
    Monitoring of greenhouse gases is essential to understand the present state and predict the future behavior of greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the greenhouse gas of most immediate concern, because of its ...
  • Kocaman, Esat S.; Akay, Erdem; Yilmaz, Cagatay; Turkmen, Halit S.; Misirlioglu, Ibrahim B.; Suleman, Afzal; Yildiz, Mehmet (Materials, 2017-01)
    A structural health monitoring (SHM) study of biaxial glass fibre-reinforced epoxy matrix composites under a constant, high strain uniaxial fatigue loading is performed using fibre Bragg grating (FBG) optical sensors ...
  • Smilovic, Mikhail; Gleeson, Tom; Adamowski, Jan; Langhorn, Colin (Advances in Water Resources, 2019)
    Global food demand is projected double by 2050 ( Gerland et al., 2014 ; United Nations 2015 ; Godfray et al., 2010 ; Foley, 2015 ; Licker et al., 2010 ) significantly increasing freshwater consumption ( Bruinsma, 2009 ; ...
  • Sprague, David; Tory, Melanie (2009-06-02)
    Current real-world casual information visualization systems use motion to presumably increase system appeal and repeated use. Despite empirical evidence suggesting that motion is distracting and not particularly good for ...
  • Gan, Luyun; Yuen, Brosnan; Lu, Tao (Machine Learning & Knowledge Extraction, 2019)
    In this paper, we implement multi-label neural networks with optimal thresholding to identify gas species among a multiple gas mixture in a cluttered environment. Using infrared absorption spectroscopy and tested on ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Li, Peixian; Lopez-Behar, Diana; Alijla, M.; Chutskoff, A. (Green lines institute, 2016-11-16)
    With increasing interest from the construction industry to deliver innovative solutions for low-cost energy-efficient green housing, Magnesium Oxide Structural Insulated Panels (MgO SIPs) are being developed as one alternative ...
  • Rekab-Eslami, Morteza; Esmaeili, Morteza; Gulliver, T. Aaron (IEEE Access, 2017)
    A convolutional network (CN) code can be described by either global encoding kernels (GEKs) or local encoding kernels (LEKs). In the literature, the multicast property of a CN code is described using GEKs, so the design ...
  • Mohtaram, Nima Khadem; Ko, Junghyuk; Montgomery, Amy; Carlson, Michael; Sun, Lin; Wong, Alix; Robinson, Meghan; Jun, Martin Byung-Guk; Willerth, Stephanie (Journal of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, 2014-11)
    Nanofabrication techniques can produce biomaterial scaffolds that mimic the microenvironment present in healthy tissue. In this study, we used solution electrospinning to produce nanofiber-based biomaterial scaffolds that ...
  • Bharadwaj, Devesh; Fyles, Thomas M.; Struchtrup, Henning (J. Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics, 2016)
    One promising sustainable energy source is the chemical potential difference between salt and freshwater. The membrane process of pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO) has been the most widely investigated means to harvest ...
  • Tzanetakis, George; Perry, Cook (IEEE, 2002-07)
    Musical genres are categorical labels created by humans to characterize pieces of music. A musical genre is characterized by the common characteristics shared by its members. These characteristics typically are related ...
  • Fujinaga, Ichiro; Goto, Masataka; Tzanetakis, George (Hindawi, 2007)
    Editorial. "The main focus of this special issue is on the application of digital signal processing techniques for music information retrieval (MIR)."
  • Jooshesh, Afshin; Smith, Levi; Masnadi-Shirazi, Mostafa; Bahrami-Yekta, Vahid; Tiedje, Thomas; Darcie, Thomas E.; Gordon, Reuven (Optics Express, 2014-11-04)
    Arrayed hexagonal metal nanostructures are used to maximize the local current density while providing effective thermal management at the nanoscale, thereby allowing for increased emission from photoconductive terahertz ...
  • Xu, Haitian; Hajisalem, Ghazal; Steeves, Geoffrey M.; Gordon, Reuven; Choi, Byoung C. (Nature: Scientific Reports, 2015-10-30)
    Ultrafast laser-induced magnetization dynamics in ferromagnetic thin films were measured using a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser in a pump-probe magneto-optic Kerr effect setup. The effect of plasmon resonance on the transient ...
  • Regmi, Raju; Al Balushi, Ahmed A.; Rigneault, Hervé; Gordon, Reuven; Wenger, Jérôme (Nature: Scientific Reports, 2015-10-29)
    Diffraction ultimately limits the fluorescence collected from a single molecule, and sets an upper limit to the maximum concentration to isolate a single molecule in the detection volume. To overcome these limitations, we ...
  • Whetzel, Patricia I.; NCBO Team (BioMed Central, 2013-04-15)
    As new biomedical technologies are developed, the amount of publically available biomedical data continues to increase. To help manage these vast and disparate data sources, researchers have turned to the Semantic Web. ...
