Accuracy assessment of GlobeLand30 2010 land cover over China based on geographically and categorically stratified validation sample data

Remote Sensing, Vol. 10, No. 8. (02 August 2018), 1213,


Land cover information is vital for research and applications concerning natural resources and environmental modeling. Accuracy assessment is an important dimension in use and production of land cover information. GlobeLand30 is a relatively new global land cover information product with a fine spatial resolution of 30 m and is potentially useful for many applications. This paper describes the methods for and results from the first country-wide and statistically based accuracy assessment of GlobeLand30 2010 land cover dataset over China. For this, ...


System crash as dynamics of complex networks

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 113, No. 42. (18 October 2016), pp. 11726-11731,


[Significance] System crash, as an essential part of system evolution, sometimes happens in peculiar manners: Weakened systems may survive for a surprisingly long time before suddenly meeting their final ends, whereas seemingly unbeatable giants may drastically crash to virtual nonexistence. We propose a model that describes system crash as a consequence of some relatively simple local information-based individual behaviors: Individuals leave networks according to some most straightforward assessment of current and future benefits/risks. Of note, such a simple rule may enable a ...


Updated source code for calculating fire danger indices in the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System

Vol. NOR-X-424 (2015)


This report presents updated versions of the FORTRAN 77 program originally published by the Canadian Forest Service in 1985 and used to calculate the Canadian forest fire weather indices from daily weather observations. The updated program is presented here in FORTRAN 95, C, C++, Python, Java and SAS/IML programming languages to meet the needs of various users. The updated versions are easier to understand and use than the original source code. The updated source codes were written in a modular programming style, consisting of a main program and ...

Antioxidant Activities and Major Anthocyanins of Myrobalan Plum (Prunus cerasifera Ehrh.)

Journal of Food Science, Vol. 77, No. 4. (April 2012), pp. C388-C393,


Total phenolic content, total antioxidant activity of Myrobalan plum (Prunus cerasifera Ehrh.) and anthocyanin content in peel were analyzed in this article. In addition, ultra-performance liquid chromatography with photodiode array detection and electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry were used to determine anthocyanin composition of this fruit. The range of total phenolic content of the tested samples was 1.34 to 6.11 g/kg fresh weight (FW), and anthocyanin content in fruit peel of Myrobalan plum was from 1.93 to 19.86 g/kg peel. Ferric ...


Molecular cloning and functional analysis of the gene encoding 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase from hazel (Corylus avellana L. Gasaway)

Journal of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Vol. 40, No. 6. (2007)


The enzyme 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGR; EC1.1.1.34) catalyzes the first committed step of isoprenoids biosynthesis in MVA pathway. Here we report for the first time the cloning and characterization of a fulllength cDNA encoding HMGR (designated as CgHMGR, GenBank accession number EF206343) from hazel (Corylus avellana L. Gasaway), a taxol-producing plant species. The full-length cDNA of CgHMGR was 2064 bp containing a 1704-bp ORF encoding 567 amino acids. Bioinformatic analyses revealed that the deduced CgHMGR had extensive homology with other plant HMGRs ...


Measurement of the cognitive functional complexity of software

In Cognitive Informatics, 2003. Proceedings. The Second IEEE International Conference on (August 2003), pp. 67-74,


One of the central problems in software engineering is its inherited complexity. It is recognized that cognitive informatics plays an important role in understanding the fundamental characteristics of software. This paper models the cognitive weights of basic control structures of software, and develops a new concept of cognitive functional size for measuring software complexity. Comparative case studies between the cognitive functional size and physical sizes of 20 programs are conducted. It is found that for a given design, although the physical ...


The Ironies of Automation: Still Going Strong at 30?

In Proceedings of the 30th European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics (2012), pp. 65-71,


[Motivation] Bainbridge highlighted some of the ironies of automation 30 years ago and identified possible solutions. Society is now highly dependent on complex technological systems, so we assess our performance in addressing the ironies in these systems. [Research approach] A critical reflection on the original ironies of automation, followed by a review of three domains where technology plays a critical role using case studies to identify where ironies persist. [Findings/Design] The reliability and speed of technology have improved, but the ironies ...


Interactions between landcover pattern and geospatial processing methods: Effects on landscape metrics and classification accuracy

Ecological Complexity, Vol. 15 (September 2013), pp. 71-82,


[Highlights] [::] Landscape spatial pattern and geospatial processing methods interact. [::] They affect landscape metrics and classification accuracy. [::] The geospatial processing methods tested were aggregation method and pixel size. [::] Absolute values of landscape metrics should be interpreted with caution. [::] Rankings of landscapes differences were consistent for the same processing methods. [Abstract] Landscape spatial pattern and geospatial processing methods interact. They affect landscape metrics and classification accuracy. The geospatial processing methods tested were aggregation method and pixel size. Absolute values of landscape metrics should be interpreted ...


Raising money for scientific research through crowdfunding

Trends Ecol Evol, Vol. 28, No. 2. (1 February 2013), pp. 71-72,


In this article we discuss the utility of crowdfunding from the perspective of individual scientists or laboratory groups looking to fund research. We address some of the main factors determining the success of crowdfunding campaigns, and compare this approach with the use of traditional funding sources. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
