  • Array gain and reduction of self-noise

    Abstract—Because an array is composed of many sensors, each making an independent measurement of the wavefield, intelligent combination of the sensor signals should lead to an overall increase in the signal-to-noise ratio. What we are trying to achieve is enhancing the signal with an array beyond what is possible with a single sensor. The array gain measures an array’s signal-to-noise ...

  • Keeping Healthcare/SPD Workers Safe from Exposure: 2 Very Different Options

    Continuous Monitoring vs. Badges Badges are designed to provide the Time Weighted Average (TWA) data for the total exposure period. They contain an absorption medium that reacts with or absorbs and holds the target chemical from the air to be analyzed later, which indicates the exposure after the fact. Badges, sample tubes, and wet chemical methods were the predominant technologies for monitoring ...

  • Self-adjustment mechanism of bed structures under hydrology and sediment regimes

    Bed structures develop in many coarse gravel-bed rivers, and the distribution of bed structures is obviously impacted by the environment conditions, especially hydrology and sediment regimes. This study carried out field investigations in natural tributaries of the Yangtze River to study the sizes of bed structures, their distribution in the basin, as well as their connections with local ...

  • Hydropolitical Self-Organization theory; system dynamics to analyse hydropolitics of Helmand transboundary river

    The paper is based on the hydropolitical driver concept and analyses non-technological drivers responsible for the depletion of water resources determining the hydropolitical situation over time. To tackle the complexity stemming from the heterogeneity of drivers, the paper adopts both theoretical hydropolitics (hydropolitical driver concept) and system dynamics (SD) (causal loop diagrams ...

  • Supercritical carbon dioxide – from coffee to dry cleaning

    Sometimes I can’t start the day without my morning coffee, and I’m sure most adults would agree that consuming caffeine is a part of their daily routine. A regular cup of coffee can contain 95 to 200mg of caffeine depending on what bean is used and how it has been prepared. In moderation, caffeine can elevate your mood, reduce tiredness and make you more alert, however it can also ...

  • If you can`t stand the CO2, get out of the kitchen - part 1

    There are two potentially dangerous types of gas in a commercial kitchen: 1) the flammable ones used for cooking (e.g. methane/natural gas; propane/liquefied petroleum gas); and 2) the noxious, gaseous products of combustion such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons. It would be good to know how to avoid them. But a search for advice on kitchen ventilation threatens to drown the ...

  • Investigating the effect of moral norm and self-identity on the intention toward water conservation among Iranian young adults

    This study aimed to investigate young adults’ intention regarding water conservation in Iran. To achieve this goal, we applied a modified theory of planned behavior, with moral norm and self-identity being two additional determinants of intention and behavior. A face-to-face survey (N = 428) was undertaken in two universities, in south-western Iran. The reliability and validity of the ...
