Remote collection of microorganisms at two depths in a freshwater lake using an unmanned surface vehicle (USV)
Microorganisms are ubiquitous in freshwater aquatic environments, but little is known about their abundance, diversity, and transport. We designed and deployed a remote-operated water-sampling system onboard an unmanned ...
Stresses and Instability in Coastal Systems: Sustaining Prosperity, Increasing Diversity and Achieving Resilience
(Virginia Tech, 2017-05-15)
More than half of the world’s human population lives within 40 miles of the sea. Coastal cities are the backbone of global finance, trade, manufacturing, and transportation. Millions of people worldwide travel to beaches ...
Effects of acute ingestion of different fats on oxidative stress and inflammation in overweight and obese adults.
Background Studies show that obese individuals have prolonged elevations in postprandial lipemia and an exacerbated inflammatory response to high fat meals, which can increase risk for cardiovascular diseases. As epidemiological ...

A Practical Method to Estimate Information Content in the Context of 4D-Var Data Assimilation. II: Application to Global Ozone Assimilation
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2012-03-01), TR-12-12
Data assimilation obtains improved estimates of the state of a physical system by combining imperfect model results with sparse and noisy observations of reality. Not all observations used in data assimilation are equally ...
Drug voyager: a computational platform for exploring unintended drug action
Abstract Background The dominant paradigm in understanding drug action focuses on the intended therapeutic effects and frequent adverse reactions. However, this approach may ...
