Note:Modern Earth System Monitoring represents a fundamental change in the way scientists study the Earth System. In Oceanography, for the past two centuries, ships have provided the platforms for observing. Expeditions on thecontinents and Earths poles a re land-based analogues. Fundamental understanding of current systems, climate, natural hazards, and ecosystems has been greatly advanced. While these approaches have been remarkably successful, the needto establish measurements over time can only be made using Earth observations and observatories with exacting standards and continuous data. The 19 peer-reviewed contributions in this volume provide early insights into this emergingview of Earth in both space and time in which change is a critical componen t of our growingunderstanding. Presents 19 authoritative, peer-reviewed entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology Covers a widerange of data collection platforms, including satellite remote sensing, aerial surveys, and land- a nd ocean-based monitoring stations Features a glossary of key terms and a concise definition of the subject for each contributionWritten for an audience of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professionals in academia, industry, and government

Note:The recent emergence of Local Binary Patterns (LBP) has led to significant progress in applying texture methods to various computer vision problems and applications. The focus of this research has broadened from 2D textures to 3Dtextures and spatiote mporal (dynamic) textures. Also, where texture was once utilized for applications such as remote sensing, industrial inspection and biomedical image analysis, the introduction of LBP-based approaches have providedoutstanding results in problems relating t o face and activity analysis, with future scope for face and facial expression recognition, biometrics, visual surveillance and video analysis. Computer Vision Using Local Binary Patternsprovides a detailed description of the LBP methods and their varian ts both in spatial and spatiotemporal domains. This comprehensive reference also provides an excellent overview as to how texture methods can be utilized for solvingdifferent kinds of computer vision and image analysis problems. Source codes of the basic LBP algorithms, demonstrations, some databases and a comprehensive LBP bibliography can be found from an accompanying web site. Topics include: - Local binary patterns and their variants in spatial and spatiotemporal domains - Texture classification and s egmentation, description of interest regions - Applications in image retrieval and 3D recognition - Recognition andsegmentation of dynamic textures - Background subtraction, recognition of actions - Face analysis using still images and image sequences, vi sual speech recognition - LBP in various applications Written by pioneers of LBP, this bookis an essential resource for researchers, professional engineers and graduate students in computer vision, image analysis and pattern recognition. The book will al so be of interest to all those who work with specific applications ofmachine vision

Note:This work introduces the important emerging space powers of the world. Brian Harvey describes the origins of the Japanese space program, from rocket designs based on WW II German U-boats to tiny solid fuel 'pencil' rockets, whichled to the launch of the first Japanese satellite in 1970. The next two chapters relate how Japan expanded its space program, developing small satellites into astronomical observatories and sending missions to the Moon, Mars, cometHalley, and asteroids. Chapter 4 describes ho w India's Vikram Sarabhai developed a sounding rocket program in the 1960s. The following chapter describes the expansion of the Indian space program. Chapter 6 relates how the Indian spaceprogram is looking ahead to the success of the moon probe Chandray an, due to launch in 2008, and its first manned launching in 2014. Chapters 7, 8, and 9 demonstrate how, in Iran, communications and remote sensing drive spacetechnology. Chapter 10 outlines Brazil's road to space, begun in the mid-1960's with the launch of the Sonda sounding rockets. The following two chapters describe Brazil's satellites and space launch systems and plans for the future.Chapters 13 and 14 study Israel's space industry. The next chapters look at the burgeoning space programs of North and South Korea. The book ends by contrasting and comparing all the space programs and speculating how they may evolvein the future.

Note:Femtosecond Laser Filamentation gives a comprehensive review of the physics of propagation of intense femtosecond laser pulses in optical media (principally air) and the applications and challenges of this new technique. Thisbook presents the modern understanding of the physics of femtosecond laser pulse propagation, including unusual new effects such as the self-transformation of the pulse into a white light laser pulse, intensity clamping, the physics ofmultiple filamentation and competition, and h ow filaments ability to melt glass leads to wave guide writing. The potential applications of laser filamentation in atmospheric sensing and the generation of other electromagnetic pulsesfrom the UV to the radio frequency are treated, together with possib le future challenges in the excitation of super-excited states of molecules. Exciting new phenomena such as filament induced ultrafast birefringence and the excitationof molecular rotational wave packets and their multiple revivals in air (gases) will als o be discussed. This volume provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of these topics currently available. It will be of greatinterest to scientists and researchers using intense femtosecond laser pulses as well as to graduate students and researchers who wish to learn more about the field

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents recently developed methodologies that utilize quantized information in system identification and explores their potential in extending control capabilities for systems with limited sensor information ornetworked systems. The result s of these methodologies can be applied to signal processing and control design of communication and computer networks, sensor networks, mobile agents, coordinated data fusion, remote sensing, telemedicine,and other fields in which noise-corrupted quantiz ed data need to be processed. Providing a comprehensive coverage of quantized identification, the book treats linear and nonlinear systems, as well as time-invariant and time-varyingsystems. The authors examine independent and dependent noises, stochastic - and deterministic-bounded noises, and also noises with unknown distribution functions. The key methodologies combine empirical measures andinformation-theoretic approaches to derive identification algorithms, provide convergence and convergence speed, e stablish efficiency of estimation, and explore input design, threshold selection and adaptation, and complexity analysis.System Identification with Quantized Observations is an excellent resource for graduate students, systems theorists, control engineers , applied mathematicians, as well as practitioners who use identification algorithms in their work.Selected material from the book may be used in graduate-level courses on system identification

Note:The paradigm of complexity is pervading both science and engineering, leading to the emergence of novel approaches oriented at the development of a systemic view of the phenomena under study the definition of powerful tools formodelling, estimation, and control and the cross-fertilization of different disciplines and approaches. This book is devoted to networked systems which are one of the most promising paradigms of complexity. It is demonstrated thatcomplex, dynamical networks are powerful tools t o model, estimate, and control many interesting phenomena, like agent coordination, synchronization, social and economics events, networks of critical infrastructures, resourcesallocation, information processing, or control over communication networks. Mo reover, it is shown how the recent technological advances in wireless communication and decreasing in cost and size of electronic devices are promoting theappearance of large inexpensive interconnected systems, each with computational, sensing and mobile capabilities

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The detection and neutralization of unexploded ordnance (UXO) has been of major concern for very many decades at least since the First World War. UXO continues to be the subject of intensive research in many fields of science.While today's headlines emphasize the mayhem resulting from the placement of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), humanitarian landmine clearing continues to draw significant global attention as well. In many countries of the world,landmines threaten the population and hinder re construction and fast, efficient utilization of large areas of the mined land in the aftermath of military conflicts. The reports in this volume, written by world leaders from academia,Government and industry, describe how basic ideas from mathematics, ra dar, sonar and chemistry can be combined with ongoing improvements in hardware and computation, as well as very new advances in multisensor data fusion, to yield thepromise of more sophisticated and accurate UXO detection and identification capabilities t han currently exist

Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Atmospheric particles are ubiquitous in the atmosphere: they form the seeds for cloud droplets and they form haze layers, blocking out incoming radiation and contributing to a partial cooling of our climate. They also contributeto poor air quality an d health impacts. A large fraction of aerosols are formed from nucleation processes that is a phase transition from vapour to liquid or solid particles. Examples are the formation of stable clusters about 1 nmin size from molecular collisions and these i n turn can grow into larger (100 nm or more) haze particles via condensation to the formation of ice crystals in mixed phase or cold clouds. This book brings together the leading expertsfrom the nucleation and atmospheric aerosols research communities to present the current state-of-the-art knowledge in these related fields. Topics covered are: Nucleation Experiment & Theory, Binary, Homogeneous and HeterogeneousNucleation, Ion & Cluster Properties During Nucleation, Aerosol Characterisation & Properties, Aerosol Formation, Dynamics and Growth, Marine Aerosol Production, Aerosol-Cloud Interactions, Chemical Composition & Cloud Drop Activation,Remote Sensing of aerosol & clouds and Air Quality-Climate Interactions
