  • Leaf Area Index (LAI): Field Measurements, Remote Sensing Estimation and Validation Studies

    Leaf Area Index (LAI): Field Measurements, Remote Sensing Estimation and Validation Studies

    Leaf area index (LAI) corresponds to one half the total green leaf area per unit horizontal ground surface area. It is one of the essential climate variables identified by the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) and has been applied in a range of biosphere-atmosphere, biogeochemical, and ecological models as a primary biophysical and ecological parameter. This talk consists of three parts. The first part presents the LAI ground measurement methods. In the field, LAI can be estimated directly or indirectly: the direct methods measure LAI through litterfall or destructive sampling; the indirect methods estimate LAI via relationship with other more easily measurable parameters, such as canopy transmittance. The second part is about the LAI estimation from optical remote sensing technique. Current methods for estimating LAI are classified into three categories through: (1) the empirical relationship between LAI and vegetation indices; (2) inversion of canopy reflectance models; and (3) a hybrid inversion method. Following this, several major global LAI products and their spatial and temporal properties will be introduced. The last part of the presentation focuses on how to validate remote sensing LAI products. There are several validation schemes that develop uncertainty information about the global LAI products, such as the direct comparison method, the bridging method that makes comparison with upscaled high resolution products, and the cross-validation method.
  • ISCU World Data System :Trusted Data Serices for Globel Open Siences

    ISCU World Data System :Trusted Data Serices for Globel Open Siences

    Research is increasingly international, transdisciplinary, and data-enabled, which requires scrupulous data stewardship, full and open access to data. New expectations on researchers from governments and funders to share data fully, openly, and in a timely manner present significant challenges and opportunities to improve quality, efficiency and accountability to society. Researchers should be able to archive and disseminate data, and civil society to scrutinize datasets. Trustworthiness of data services must be verifiable. In addition, the need to integrate large and complex datasets across disciplines and domains with variable levels of maturity calls for better coordination to achieve interoperability and sustainability. WDS promotes long-term stewardship of, and universal and equitable access to, quality-assured scientific data. It coordinates and supports trusted scientific data services for the provision, use, and preservation of datasets to facilitate scientific research. It certifies its members—holders and providers of data—using internationally recognized standards, providing the building blocks of a searchable common infrastructure from which a data system that is both interoperable and distributed can be formed. This presentation will describe more specifically activities developed by its Scientific Committee to:(1)Improve and stimulate basic level Certification for Scientific Data Services, in particular through collaboration with the Data Seal of Approval. (2)Identify and define best practices for Publishing Data and to test implementation by involving the core stakeholders i.e. researchers, institutions, data centres, scholarly publishers, and funders.(3)Establish an open WDS Metadata Catalogue, Knowledge Network, and Global Registry of Trusted Data Services.
  • Treads and variability in atmospheric Precipitable water over the Tibetan Plateau

    Treads and variability in atmospheric Precipitable water over the Tibetan Plateau

    Trends and variability in precipitable water (PW) are an important component of climate change assessments for the Tibetan Plateau (TP). PW products from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) are able to provide good spatial coverage of PW over the TP. The trends and variations in TP PW from 2000 to 2010 are analysed using three different methods (including linear fit, non-parametric and non-linear). The trend patterns derived from MODIS and ECMWF are very similar except for the magnitude. Increasing trends are found in the eastern and western TP; with decreasing trends in the middle. To detect the decadal trend in PW over the TP, Bayesian inference theory is used to construct long-term and spatially continuous PW data for the TP based on the station and MODIS observations. The prior information on the monthly-mean PW from MODIS and the 63 stations over the TP for 2000–06 is used to get the posterior probability knowledge that is utilized to build a Bayesian estimation model. This model is then operated to estimate continuous monthly-mean PW for 1970–2011 and its performance is evaluated using the monthly MODIS PW anomalies (2007–11) and annual GPS PW anomalies (1995–2011) to demonstrate that the model estimation can reproduce the PW variability over the TP in both space and time. Annual PW series show a significant increasing trend of 0.19mmdecade21 for the TP during the 42 years. The most significant PW increase of 0.47mmdecade21 occurs for 1986–99 and an insignificant decrease occurs for 2000–11. From the comparison of the PW data from JRA-55, ERA-40, ERA-Interim, MERRA, NCEP-2, and ISCCP, it is found that none of them are able to show the actual long-term trends and variability in PW for the TP as the Bayesian estimation.

  • Pattern and dynamic analysis of Northeast Asia land cover based on object-oriented classification method

    Pattern and dynamic analysis of Northeast Asia land cover based on object-oriented classification method

    Collecting Landsat TM/ETM+ images of the whole region in 1990~2000, with the support of the object-oriented platform Ecognition, this research used decision tree and nearest neighbors classifier to extract the information about the land cover pattern of Northeast Asia, as well as its dynamic change. Based on the above datasets, choosing the involved area of China-Russia treaty, the coastwise transect area of Heilongjiang river basin, transect area of the frozen soils and Wusuli river basin of cross-boundary region between China and Russia as priority areas in this study, we discussed characteristics of land cover patterns and spatial differences of changes among different countries. Besides, taking related research about land suitable assessment as reference, we selected the most sensitive, most accurate and most abundant information indices as the assessment factor, according to the principle of comprehensiveness, leading character, rank character and regional rules. Then, we combined AHP (analytic hierarchy process) and expert evaluation method to illustrate the weight of different evaluation factors. After that, we did comprehensive suitable evaluation of reserved cultivated land in Northeast Asia. Finally, this study determined the spatial patterns and quantity of general suitable zone, highly suitable zone, fairly unsuitable zone and unsuitable zone. The result of this study can provide scientific support for sound land use policy makings.

When you hear about companies raising tons of money for “smart glass,” the first thing that hits your mind might be something augmented reality-related like the HoloLens. But View, which just closed a $200 million funding round after securing $70 million from BlackRock, is using smart glass to make better windows that adjust to the outdoor environment. The internet-connected windows can be made more of less transparent via a smartphone app, eliminating the need for blinds. The windows can also automatically adjust based on weather conditions so that they are ready when the beating sun comes out or you’re trying to make the most of your natural light during a more cloudy day. Putting the production pipelines in place to put smart glass on 20 million square feet worth of buildings is expensive, this raise puts the company’s total up to nearly $650 million in disclosed funding. “Our demand has gone up significantly where we are now production-limited as a company,” CEO Rao Mulpuri told Te
JASK emerges from stealth with $12 million and an automated threat detection service

JASK emerges from stealth with $12 million and an automated threat detection service

JASK is emerging from stealth today with $12 million in the bank and a machine learning technology that automates network monitoring and management for overtaxed security teams. The thesis behind JASK’s service is the somewhat depressing (and frightening) thought that these days there aren’t enough security experts to meet the demands of running a modern business. Simply put, people can’t respond to every breach that a company faces, because there aren’t enough professionals trained in cybersecurity. To manage that staffing shortage, companies can turn to automated services like JASK that will monitor networks and prioritize threats to chief information security officers and their teams based on the severity of the threat, according to a statement from the company. The company was founded by network security veteran Greg Martin, a co-founder of ThreatStream (now Anomali), which was also developing network monitoring technologies. JASK’s latest round was led by Dell Technologies Capital
Facebook improves its AI Messenger assistant ‘M’ with new wits

Facebook improves its AI Messenger assistant ‘M’ with new wits

Facebook M, the company’s AI-powered assistant that lives inside Messenger, was launched widely back in April giving suggestions to users based on the context of their conversations. Today, M is getting a bit smarter and more socially capable. Perhaps most notable is that the AI assistant will now proactively remind users to save pieces of content like articles, videos or FB posts to check out later or share in message threads using the ‘Saved’ extension. If you’re someone who gets sent a lot of things to read from your friends, this should help you stay on top of it all so you don’t have to lie when they ask you what you thought of something they sent you in Messenger. It’s interesting that Messenger’s M is really being taught to help you avoid social faux pas as well, things that really may save you in some situations. One incoming set of suggestions are related to birthdays, ensuring that if you’ve been chatting with someone, you’re reminded to wish them a happy birthday. Lastly, M
Justin Kan’s video Q&A app Whale gets Tinder-style swipes in major redesign

Justin Kan’s video Q&A app Whale gets Tinder-style swipes in major redesign

Whale, the Q&A app backed by Twitch co-founder Justin Kan, has got a major update and refreshed design that makes it easier to discover video content on the service. The iOS-only app launched in October 2016, pivoting from a music app after Kan was inspired by Chinese Q&A service Fenda. The goal was to enable users to ask questions or get advice from subject matter experts, such as investment or product development tips from Kan. It used a payment mechanism to incentivize users to respond to questions with the promise of earning cash, but it has now scraped that approach — and a whole lot more — with this update. More widely, Whale has adopted a Tinder-style swipe mechanism to help you find questions that are interesting to you quickly and easily. The app serves up questions that have been asked to users you follow. Swiping right on a question indicates that you are interested in hearing the response and, if and when that video is posted, it will then show up in the ‘Watch’ tab
