    • Bayesian defeat of camouflage 

      Cofer, Rufus H. (1992-09-21)
      A new technique is shown for refining and reducing incoming camouflage data based upon the Bayesian paradigm. Innovation is displayed in use of a statistical conditioning sequence that avoids the need to form target features ...
    • Behavioral Economic Analyses of Reinforcement in the Experimental Analysis of Human Behavior 

      Chastain, James Allen (2016-07)
      Evidence-based advances in the field of Behavior Analysis have begun to demonstrate ways in which behavioral-economic methods may provide a coherent understanding of responding and consumption of reinforcers. This ...
    • Benthic Foraminiferal Distributions in a Shallow Subtropical Estuary and the Influence of Environmental Factors 

      Zamora Duran, Maria Angelica (2016-12)
      Benthic foraminiferal communities are potentially useful tools for assessing and monitoring estuarine ecosystems and as bioindicators of water quality and pollution. To evaluate this indicator for the Indian River Lagoon ...
    • Benthic marine calcifiers coexist with CaCO3-undersaturated seawater worldwide. 

      Lebrato, Mario; Andersson, Andreas J.; Ries, Justin Baker; ARONSON, RICHARD B.; Lamare, Miles D.; Koeve, Wolfgang; Oschlies, Andreas; Iglesias-Rodríguez, María Débora; Thatje, Sven; Vos, Stephanie C. (2016-07-01)
      Ocean acidification and decreasing seawater saturation state with respect to calcium carbonate (CaCO3) minerals have raised concerns about the consequences to marine organisms that build CaCO3 structures. A large proportion ...

      Owen, Kevin C.; Norris, Dean R. (1982)
      Gonyaulax monilata cysts were found in the sediments from 13 of 37 stations sampled in the Indian River, Florida. The distribution of cysts appears to be the result of 2 unrelated phenomena. In areas where blooms have ...

      Lena, Haydee (1982)
      Benthic Testacida from sediments of Lake Washington were studied. The Testacida were extracted using standard foraminiferologic techniques. The determined taxa were photographed using scanning electron microscopy. Twenty-one ...

      Amini-Harandi, Alireza; Farajzadeh, Ali P.; O'Regan, Donal; Agarwal, Ravi P. (2008-11-05)
      A best proximity pair for a set-valued map F : A → B with respect to a map g : A → A is defined, and new existence theorems of best proximity pairs for upper semicontinuous set-valued maps with respect to a homeomorphism ...
    • Best proximity pairs theorems for continuous set-valued maps 

      Amini-Harandi, Alireza; Farajzadeh, Ali P.; O'Regan, Donal; Agarwal, Ravi P. (2008-12-30)
      A best proximity pair for a set-valued map F : A -○ B with respect to a set-valued map G : A -○ A is defined, and a new existence theorem of best proximity pairs for continuous set-valued maps is proved in nonexpansive ...
    • Bias correction of 10m wind forecasts near a coastal estuary in East Central Florida 

      Holman, Bryan P.; Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael E.; Colvin, Jeffrey A.; Weaver, Robert J.; Taeb, Peyman; Saberi, Atousa (2015-01-11)
      The lagoon is long (250 km), skinny (2 - 8 km wide), and shallow (1 - 3 m in depth). Fetch is limited in most wind directions, save from the NNW (340°) and the SSE (160°). Flow in the lagoon is primarily wind-driven, ...
    • Big Data Medical Diagnostics System/ 

      Beavers, Tabitha; Binns, Andrew; Wells, Michael
      Misplaced ECG leads are estimated to be the cause of as much as 4% of misleading results1 given to patients, occasionally causing fatalities^2. This project seeks to replace current leads with a pad of ECG electrodes, ...
    • Bio Exo Skulder – The Shoulder Brace 

      McClure, Ian; Kim, Jacob; Mogharbel, Reham; Brito, Carlos
      The shoulder joint is: •A ball-and-socket joint (3 degree of freedom) •Stabilized by the rotator cuff, a group of muscles and tendons •Highly susceptible to injury •Difficult to repair due to its complexity
    • Biofabrication: 3D Printing for Tissue Engineering 

      Bailey, Ryan; Baskerville, Scott; Gilchrist, Victoria; Weng Kwan, Michael; McClure, Ian
      Biofabrication is the use of additive manufacturing (3D printing) for biological applications. The ultimate goal of biofabrication is to print viable organs for transplantation using patients’ own cells. In order for ...

      Johnson, Robert O.; Nelson, Walter G. (1985)
      Changes in benthic fauna were monitored following excavation of an offshore borrow area in the vicinity of Fort Pierce Inlet, Florida. Sampling stations were established along 2 transects located in the borrow area, 1 ...
    • Biological, Cognitive and Psychosocial Variables Associated with Female Students' Pursuit of STEM or non-STEM Major in College 

      Shuman, Anna Brenner (2017-01)
      In the United States a disproportionately small number of women entering the field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This results in women missing out on job opportunities with better earning ...
