    • 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 ...
    • Benthic marine calcifiers coexist with CaCO3-undersaturated seawater worldwide.

      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 ...
    • BENTHIC RESTING CYSTS OF GONYAULAX MONILATA HOWELL AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO RED TIDES IN THE INDIAN RIVER, FLORIDA 

      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 ...
    • BENTHIC TESTACIDA (RHIZOPODA, PROTOZOA) OF LAKE WASHINGTON, BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA 

      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 ...

    • 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, ...
    • BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF DREDGING IN AN OFFSHORE BORROW AREA. 

      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 ...
    • BIOLOGY AND ECOLOGY OF RIVULUS MARMORATUS: NEW INSIGHTS AND A REVIEW 

      Taylor, D. Scott (2000)
      Rivulus marmoratus (Pisces: Aplocheilidae) is a small cyprinodontid indigenous to mangroves of the western tropical Atlantic. This species is well known as the only selffertilizing, hermaphroditic vertebrate, and populations ...
    • Birkhoff-Kellogg theorems on invariant directions for multimaps 

      Agarwal, Ravi P.; O'Regan, Donal (2001-12-11)

    • Bit-allocation considering mean absolute error for image compression 

      Goswami, Hemen; Kozatis, Samuel Peter (2000-06-29)
      In lossy image compression schemes, often some distortion measure is minimized to arrive at a desired target bit rate. The distortion measure that has been most studied is the mean-squared-error (MSE). However, perceptual ...
    • Blood vessel segmentation in magnetic resonance angiography imagery 

      Kozaitis, Samuel P.; Chandramohan, Raghu (2011-06-03)
      Small blood vessels may be difficult to detect in magnetic resonance angiography due to the lack of blood flow caused by disease or injury. Our method, which uses a block-matching denoising approach to segment blood vessels, ...
