thus, two different classification schemes are proposed in this study: 1) a decision tree analysis (dta)  [10, 11],  based on spectral analysis, band transformation and expert-knowledge and 2) the analysis of the principal components (pca) of knepper ratios, adequate in the fast, spectral-based delineation of mineral components.
soil classification is the separation of soil into classes or groups each having similar characteristics and potentially similar behaviour. a classification for engineering purposes should be based mainly on mechanical properties, e.g. permeability, stiffness, strength. the class to which a soil belongs can be used in its description.
rapid detection of foodborne pathogens is one of the most effective ways to solve food safety problems. to achieve rapid and noninvasive detection and classification of foodborne pathogens, we modified a fiber confocal backscattering micro-spectral system to suit an extremely small biological sample, that is, a bacterium. this system offers single-bacterium level, label-free, convenient, and
hydrochemistry mapping of groundwater is one of the important aspects of water resources management of an area based on usages such as drinking water or irrigation, and their quality requirement. such mapping could lead to optimal utilization and protection from quality deterioration. in this paper, a geospatial based water quality index is developed for preparing water quality class
two principal features of groundwater bodies distinguish them from surface water bodies. firstly, the relatively slow movement of water through the ground means that residence times in groundwaters are generally orders of magnitude longer than in surface waters (see table 1.1). once polluted, a groundwater body could remain so for decades, or
groundwater samples from 32 principal aquifers across the united states (u.s.) provide a broad spatial scope of the occurrence and distribution of strontium (sr) and are used to assess environments and factors that influence sr concentration. strontium is a common trace element in soils, rocks, and water and is ubiquitous in groundwater with...
in the work reported here, we combine both data preprocessing and an improved input variable selection method with a nonlinear regression model to facilitate improved groundwater level prediction. our method employs concepts from mutual information theory to capture nonlinear dependencies between explanatory variables by using their joint and marginal probability instead of a
abstract: colorado state university's strength in groundwater research evolved naturally from the state's early residents needing information on irrigated agriculture. the data, maps, charts, drafts, correspondence, photographs, final reports, and reference materials that were produced by or collected for these groundwater studies over the years are what comprise the groundwater data collection.
the groundwater chemistry of the gbm river delta aquifer system is controlled by the hydrostratigraphy and the groundwater flow paths and hence varies across the delta. the shallow aquifers are dominated by relatively young groundwater that bears groundwater isotopic (δ 18 o ) signature of meteoric recharge coupled with some meteoric diagenesis and evaporation loss ( mukherjee, 2006; mukherjee et al.,
to delineate groundwater potentiality, seven main criteria like lithology, drainage density, lineament density, soil texture, geomorphology, slope and land use/cover were identified based on the
three dependent variables were calculated and used to quantify presence of arb and/or multidrug resistant bacteria (mrb) in groundwater and represent the main findings from each included study (i.e. studies were the analytic unit throughout analyses), namely: (i) occurrence rates of antimicrobial resistance (≥1 antimicrobial) amongst all groundwater isolates tested; (ii) occurrence rates of multidrug resistance (≥3 antimicrobials) amongst all groundwater
it is designed to work with simple time-series data for solute concentration and groundwater elevation. it can also plot non-aqueous phase liquid thickness. for details see gwsdat on the cl:aire
this can be used to analyze medical or chemical samples, to date lunar materials, to study groundwater and old icecaps, and prospect for various materials like gold and oil.
centrifugal pump working principle the centrifugal pump working principle mainly depends on the flow of forced vortex which means whenever a certain accumulation of liquid or fluid is permitted to turn with an exterior torque than there will be an increase within rotating liquid pressure head takes place.
groundwater is an essential and vital resource for about a quarter of all canadians. it is their sole source of water for drinking and washing, for farming and manufacturing, indeed, for all their daily water needs. yet for the majority of canadians -- those who do not depend on it -- groundwater is a hidden resource whose value is not well
12-1(c)], the vertical stress is the minor principal stress and the radial stress a,' is the major princi-pal stress. the intermediate principal stress ((y2t) is equal to the major principal stress (a1). slopes and retaining structures can be approximated by the plane-strain condition in which the interme-diate principal strain (e2) is zero.
