  • Method for irrigation scheduling based on soil moisture data acquisition

    The water requirements of crops are dependent on evapotranspiration (ET), soil chemistry, and the crop’s maximum allowable depletion (MAD). Direct measurements of root zone soil moisture, water application along with published ET values and soil textures, can be used in a soil water balance model that can significantly optimize irrigation efficiency. Over the past five years, advancements in ...

  • Group method of data handling (GMDH) in modelling of growth dynamics of trees irrigated with wastewater

    This paper describes the formulation and analysis of growth dynamics models for trees irrigated with wastewater. The models can be used to obtain the characteristics of a species, depending on treatment conditions and climate factors, at all stages of growth. The experiments were carried out at the University of Patras to identify the characteristics (height rate and mortality) of the forest tree ...

  • Group method of data handling (GMDH) application for modelling of mechanical properties of trees irrigated with wastewater

    Experiments have been carried out to identify the mechanical properties of trees irrigated with wastewater, as well as mathematical modelling of measurement results via the group method of data handling (GMDH) method. Eucalyptus trees were cultivated and irrigated with processed wastewater from a treatment plant. Characteristics of wood quality (axial compression and bending, etc.) were measured ...

  • Data Logger the size of a credit card

    Negligent handling of temperature sensitive goods can have fatal consequences. Of course it is advantageous to control temperatures, however temperature data loggers of the past were often bulky and unmanageable. Now there is a data logger which has been reduced to the size of a credit card. Goods are not always treated gently during transportation. Shipping businesses are increasingly under ...

  • Assessing The Health of Marine Ecosystems Through Fisheries Data

    Ecosystem Health Assessment (EHA) started to be applied in environmental management in the late 80s. Since then, a considerable number of ecological indicators have been applied for EHA. Jørgensen et al. (2005a) have classified these indicators into eight levels corresponding to: indicators based on specific ...


  • A Moment Matching Approach for Generating Synthetic Data

    ABSTRACT Synthetic data are becoming increasingly important mechanisms for sharing data among collaborators and with the public. Multiple methods for the generation of synthetic data have been proposed, but many have short comings with respect to maintaining the statistical properties of the original data. We propose a new method for fully synthetic data ...

  • Unsupervised Tensor Mining for Big Data Practitioners

    ABSTRACT Multiaspect data are ubiquitous in modern Big Data applications. For instance, different aspects of a social network are the different types of communication between people, the time stamp of each interaction, and the location associated to each individual. How can we jointly model all those aspects and leverage the additional information that they ...

  • Implementing participatory irrigation management in Thailand

    Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM) was formally adopted in Thailand in 2004. The involvement of farmers in water management decision making is necessary to meet the implementation challenges of this initiative. As such, the research presented in this paper considered the level of farmer involvement in water management and decision making, and the lessons learned by both government ...

  • Monitoring Water Resources Beyond Irrigation

    Over the past year, California’s governor has taken unprecedented action, requiring Californians to drastically cut potable urban water use. While the restrictions may seem harsh to some, it actually provides an opportunity for building managers and community association boards to implement an effective long-term water conservation program. And the result can be significant dollar savings. ...

  • Plan B 4.0 by the numbers - data highlights on the global food supply

    World agriculture today faces pressure from many sources. On the production side, the amount of unused arable and worldwide has dwindled. Overworked soils are becoming eroded and degraded, and overpumped aquifers are being depleted. Meanwhile, as the global population grows and increasing biofuel production converts grain into fuel for cars, demand for food continues to climb. In Chapters 2 and 9 ...

  • Flow monitoring for golf course irrigation case study

    “We are all talking about the price of oil, but it's water we'll be fighting for in the future” Summerheights Golf Links in Cornwall, Ontario draws irrigation water from the South Raisin River. Flow rates in the river can become very low during dry periods so water extraction is regulated and monitored closely. Under a water extraction permit issued by the Ministry of The ...

  • India's groundwater irrigation boom: can it be sustained?

    Development of groundwater irrigation (GWI) has been very impressive in India, especially after the introduction of the green revolution. The area under GWI accounts for 62% of the net irrigated area today. Though GWI provides added benefits to farmers, compared to other sources of irrigation, the continuous exploitation of groundwater of late has resulted in a drastic drop in the water table, ...

  • Africa Analysis: Filling climate data gaps is only the first step

    Africa is often blamed for having scarce and unreliable weather records that hold back predictions of how climate change will affect the continent. This has led to calls over the years for better climate-change science and record-keeping, with the most recent coming from ...

  • The manage database: nutrient load and site characteristic updates and runoff concentration data

    The 'Measured Annual Nutrient loads from AGricultural Environments' (MANAGE) database was developed to be a readily accessible, easily queried database of site characteristic and field-scale nutrient export data. The original version of MANAGE, which drew heavily from an early 1980s compilation of nutrient export data, created an electronic database with nutrient load data and corresponding site ...

  • We should treat data projects as we do scientific experiments

    It is received wisdom amongst many ‘data gurus’ that correlation equals insight. And supporting them in their quest are plenty of analytics platforms to spot these correlations and hidden relationships and additional tools to blend data and identify further relationships. The reality is that most data interrelationships are not that simple. Many correlations are based on ...

  • ASAM-ODS A Standardized Data Source for Test-bed Environments

    The diversity and incompatibility of heterogeneous data archives within automotive product development was one of the driving forces that led to the foundation of the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring systems (ASAM).
