UAV-based air pollutant source localization using gradient and probabilistic methods
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2018)
This work proposes an algorithm for air pollutant source localization using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The algorithm combines a gradient-based search with a probabilistic method to localize the pollutant source. The ...
Pollution status of marine protected areas worldwide and the consequent toxic effects are unknown
Chemical pollution is considered a factor that may threaten marine protected areas (MPAs), and recent studies have found contamination and associated biological effects in some MPAs. However, organized data on this topic ...
