    Abstract:

    Accumulating evidence indicates that global sea levels have been rising at an accelerating rate. This trend, linked with global warming, poses a great risk to the communities living in the low elevation coastal areas. This study aims to understand public preferences and produce estimates of economic value for sea level rise adaptation projects in Florida. Specifically, a series of choice experiments embedded in a household survey of Florida’s selected communities were used to: 1) examine the …

    Abstract:

    Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) is a powerful technique in biomedical research that uses the fluorophore decay rate to provide additional contrast in fluorescence microscopy. However, at present, the calculation, analysis, and interpretation of FLIM is a complex, slow, and computationally expensive process. Machine learning (ML) techniques are well suited to extract and interpret measurements from multi-dimensional FLIM data sets with substantial improvement in speed over conv…

    Abstract:

    The authors of this chapter undertook a study to determine how well library school education is preparing students for electronic resources (ER) librarianship. The study provides an analysis of 100 ER librarian position descriptions to determine the requisite skills, training, and knowledge, and then an analysis of how well those skills are covered in the ALA-accredited Master’s level library programs through their course descriptions. The authors also examine ways to define, explore, and…

    Abstract:

    Many libraries today are inundated with increasing number of tasks, projects, and initiatives through which they hope to achieve their mission and strategic vision only to find themselves losing focus and drowning in the volume of work. Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame struggled with absorbing an exponentially growing number of projects and aligning them with institutional strategic initiatives and goals. The increasing number of projects and the relatively stable size of th…

    Abstract:

    There are a wide range of opportunities for and approaches to developing and customizing data visualization support services in academic libraries; however, practitioners interested in exploring current approaches are constrained by the lack of a mature body of literature to consult for inspiration, caution, and best practices. This chapter presents a case study of the implementation of a data visualization space and revised data visualization services in an academic library-based digital sch…

    http://www.energy-proceedings.org/on-energy-optimal-speed-trajectories-in-urban-traffic-implementation-options/

    Realization methods for energy optimal urban driving are the prime focus of this paper. Insights into the real-time generation of such trajectories as well as “in traffic” methods for their execution are provided. This includes the usage of piecewise linear approximations of typical urban speed profiles, urban platooning, filtering of trajectories, and modifying initial acceleratio…

    Abstract:

    Background: Although many studies demonstrated reduced mortality risk with higher greenness, few studies examined the modifying effect of greenness on air pollution–health associations. We evaluated residential greenness as an effect modifier of the association between long-term exposure to fine particles (PM2.5) and mortality.

    Methods: We used data from all Medicare beneficiaries in North Carolina (NC) and Michigan (MI) (2001–2016). We estimated annual PM2.5 averages using ensemble predicti…

    Abstract:

    We develop a local, spatial measure of educational isolation (EI) and characterize the relationship between EI and our previously developed measure of racial isolation (RI). EI measures the extent to which non-college educated individuals are exposed primarily to other non-college educated individuals. To characterize how the RI-EI relationship varies across space, we propose a novel measure of local correlation. Using birth records from the State of Michigan (2005–2012), we estimate associat…

    Abstract:

    BACKGROUND AND AIM: Although previous literature suggested beneficial impacts of residential greenness on the association between heat exposure and several health outcomes, research is very limited for birth outcomes. We investigated the association between exposure to heat/heat waves during the last week of gestation and preterm birth (PTB) in North Carolina (NC) from 2003 to 2014. We evaluated disparities by residential greenness, urbanicity, and socioeconomic status (SES) in this associati…

    Abstract:

    We introduce spatial (DLfuse) and spatiotemporal (DLfuseST) distributed lag data fusion methods for predicting point-level ambient air pollution concentrations, using, as input, gridded average pollution estimates from a deterministic numerical air quality model. The methods incorporate predictive information from grid cells surrounding the prediction location of interest and are shown to collapse to existing downscaling approaches when this information adds no benefit. The spatial lagged par…
