Detection of local anomalies in high resolution hyperspectral imagery using geostatistical filtering and local spatial statistics by Pierre Goovaerts( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper describes a methodology to detect local anomalies in high resolution hyperspectral imagery, which involves successively a multivariate statistical analysis (PCA) of all spectral bands, a geostatistical filtering of noise and regional background in the first principal components using factorial kriging, and finally the computation of a local indicator of spatial autocorrelation to detect local clusters of high or low reflectance values as well as anomalies. A case study illustrates the ability of the filtering procedure to reduce the proportion of false alarms, and its robustness under low signal to noise ratios. By leveraging both spectral and spatial information, the technique requires little or no input from the user, and hence can be readily automated

Improving an ergonomics testing procedure via approximation-based adaptive experimental design( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Adaptive design refers to experimental design where the next sample point is determined by information from previous experiments. This article presents a constrained optimization algorithm known as superEGO (a variant of the EGO algorithm of Schonlau, Welch, and Jones) that can create adaptive designs using kriging approximations. Our primary goal is to illustrate that superEGO is well-suited to generating adaptive designs which have many advantages over competing methods. The approach is demonstrated on a novel human-reach experiment where the selection of sampling points adapts to the individual test subject. Results indicate that superEGO is effective at satisfying the experimental objectives
Multilevel Factors Associated With Overall Mortality for Men Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer in Florida( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To identify individual and contextual factors contributing to overall mortality among men diagnosed with prostate cancer in Florida, a random sample of patients (between October 1, 2001, and December 31, 2007) was taken from the Florida Cancer Data System. Patient's demographic and clinical information were obtained from the Florida Cancer Data System. Comorbidity was computed following the Elixhauser Index method. Census-tract-level socioeconomic status and farm house presence were extracted from Census 2000 and linked to patient data. The ratio of urologists and radiation oncologists to prostate cancer cases at the county level was computed. Multilevel logistic regression was conducted to identify significance of individuals and contextual factors in relation to overall mortality. A total of 18, 042 patients were identified, among whom 2, 363 died. No racial difference was found in our study. Being older at diagnosis, unmarried, current smoker, uninsured, diagnosed at late stage, with undifferentiated, poorly differentiated, or unknown tumor grade were significantly associated with higher odds of overall mortality. Living in a low-income area was significantly associated with higher odds of mortality (p = .0404). After adjusting for age, stage, and tumor grade, patients who received hormonal, combination of radiation with hormone therapy, and no definitive treatment had higher odds of mortality compared with those who underwent surgery only. A large number of comorbidities were associated with higher odds of mortality. Although disease-specific mortality was not examined, our findings suggest the importance of careful considerations of patient sociodemographic characteristics and their coexisting conditions in treatment decision making, which in turn affects mortality
Development of Assessment Tools for Evaluation of the Benefits of DNAPL Source Zone Treatment( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since its commencement in September 2002, SERDP Project ER-1293 has supported 4 doctoral students at three universities and resulted in over 40 conference proceedings/technical abstracts and over 20 peer-reviewed publications. These presentations and publications, as referenced in this final report, describe various aspects of the research investigations and tools that have been developed to enhance design and assessment of DNAPL source zone treatment. In general, research in ER-1293 has led to the development and validation of four important concepts: (i) partial source zone mass removal may result in substantial local concentration and mass flux reductions; (ii) potential remediation efficiency is closely linked to source zone architecture (ganglia to pool ratios); (iii) biostimulation and bioaugmentation approaches are feasible for treatment of DNAPL source zones; and (iv) the uncertainty in mass discharge ([M/T]) estimates can be quantified through application of geostatistical methods to field measurements. Major contributions of this research include (i) establishment that rates of metabolic reductive dechlorination can exceed rates of DNAPL dissolution, resulting in aqueous contaminant concentrations in the presence of DNAPL that are substantially lower than saturation levels and are not toxic to the dechlorinating organisms; (ii) enhancements in dissolution will be transient and a function of physico-chemical and biological conditions adjacent to the DNAPL; (iii) demonstration that mass flux reduction behavior can be directly linked to DNAPL source zone architecture; (iv) development of a series of geostatistical approaches capable of quantifying mass discharge uncertainty and guiding real-time sampling design for uncertainty reduction through hot spot delineation ; and (v) creation of a source zone remediation cost estimation tool
