Advances in Watershed Science and Assessment by Tamim Younos, Tammy E. Parece

By Tamim Younos, Tammy E. Parece

This quantity bargains ideas, tools and case experiences of cutting edge and evolving applied sciences within the zone of watershed evaluate. themes mentioned contain: (1) improvement and purposes of geospatial, satellite tv for pc imagery and distant sensing applied sciences for land tracking; (2) improvement and functions of satellite tv for pc imagery for tracking inland water caliber; (3) improvement and purposes of water sensor applied sciences for real-time tracking of water volume and caliber; and (4) Advances in organic tracking and microbial resource monitoring technologies.

This e-book could be of curiosity to graduate scholars and researchers all for watershed technological know-how and environmental stories. both, it's going to function a invaluable consultant to specialists in govt firms who're considering water-availability and water-quality concerns, and engineers and different execs eager about the layout of land- and water-monitoring systems.

Server-side GPS and Assisted-GPS in Java (Artech House Gnss Technologies and Applications)

Assisted GPS (A-GPS) is a expertise that vastly complements GPS functionality and services. This leading edge publication deals a close clarification of how that an A-GPS server operates from a realistic viewpoint. Engineers find out how A-GPS improves serious points of GPS, resembling time-to-first-fix (TTFF) and yield.

Creating Spatial Information Infrastructures: Towards the Spatial Semantic Web

Tasks, resembling encourage and the USA DHS Geospatial info version, are operating to enhance a wealthy set of criteria that may create harmonized types and subject matters for the spatial details infrastructure. even though, this is often purely step one. Semantically significant types needs to nonetheless be constructed so that it will stimulate interoperability.

Land Change Science: Observing, Monitoring and Understanding Trajectories of Change on the Earth’s Surface

This quantity is a synthesis of the NASA funded paintings below the Land-Cover and Land-Use switch application. countless numbers of scientists have labored for the prior 8 years to appreciate essentially the most vital forces that's altering our planet-human affects on land hide, that's land use. Its contributions span the normal and the social sciences, and practice cutting-edge suggestions for realizing the earth: satellite tv for pc distant sensing, geographic details structures, modeling, and complex computing.
