Land Use detection with cell phone data using topic models: Case Santiago, Chile
Today we have the opportunity without precedents to analyze human land use or mobility behavior in a city, country or even the globe. Some studies have analyzed existing data generated daily by mobile networks, mostly using ...
Subjective modeling decisions can significantly impact the simulation of flood and drought events
(Elsevier B.V., 2019)
© 2018 The Author(s)It is generally acknowledged in the environmental sciences that the choice of a computational model impacts the research results. In this study of a flood and drought event in the Swiss Thur basin, we ...
A simple-biology, stage-structured population model of the spring dynamics of Calanus chilensis at Mejillones del Sur Bay, Chile
The population dynamics of Calanus chilensis (Copepoda: Crustacea) was analyzed using a mixture of field data and mathematical models. Field data were obtained in the Humboldt Current upwelling area, at Mejillones del Sur ...
Modeling forest biomass using Very-High-Resolution data - Combining textural, spectral and photogrammetric predictors derived from spaceborne stereo images
(Italian Society of Remote Sensing, 2015)
Study of the fractality of magnetized plasma using an MHD shell model driven by solar wind data
(American Institute of Physics Inc., 2018)
An MHD shell model is used to describe the dissipative events that take place in magnetized plasmas. We analyze the activity of the time series of the magnetic energy dissipation rate obtained in the MHD shell model, which ...
A model for estimating the vegetation cover in the high-altitude Wetlands of the Andes (HAWA)
(MDPI AG, 2019)
The natural salt meadows of Tilopozo in the hyperarid, Atacama Desert of northern Chile, which are located at approximately 2800 m above sea level, are under pressure from industrial activity, and cultivation and grazing ...
Using a dynamic forest model to predict tree species distributions
Aim It has been suggested that predicting species distributions requires a processbased and preferably dynamic approach. If dynamic models are to contribute towards understanding species distributions, uncertainties ...
Prediction of copper recovery from geometallurgical data using D-vine copulas
(South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, 2019)
The accurate modelling of geometallurgical data can significantly improve decision-making and help optimize mining operations. This case study compares models for predicting copper recovery from three indirect test ...
Resolution of the cloud enhancement problem for one-minute diffuse radiation prediction
For design and simulation of solar energy systems, quality information about all components of solar irradiance is crucial. In cases when only global irradiance measurements are available, separation models are a useful ...
