Taller de Trabajo Sobre Modelaje de Cultivos: Entrenamiento y Calibracion Informe

Description: Report on a Modeling Crop and Climate Change workshop. The objectives of the workshop were: 1) train Venezuelan scientists in the use of agricultural models IBSNAT program (International Benchmark Sites Network for Agrotechnology Transfer), including discussions about their applicability and the acquisition of knowledge about the data needed for proper simulation and validation, 2) Calibrate the model of maize (CERES) for different cultivars and different regions of Venezuela using data from soil and climate corresponding to various tests, 3) Carry out model simulations under various climate scenarios to assess their potential effects on crops, 4) To strengthen the cooperation between users of IBSNAT models to make necessary tests to get a better database application thus facilitating validation and calibration of these models, and 5) To establish plans for future agricultural and meteorological research in the context of global climate change.

Remote Sensing and GIS for Nonpoint Source Pollution Analysis in the City of Dallas' Eastern Watersheds

Description: This report describes the findings of a study conducted on the Eastern Watersheds of Lake Lavon, Lake Ray Hubbard, Lake Tawakoni, Lake Palestine and Lake Fork, which are located within the Blackland Prairie, Post Oak Savannah and Pineywoods provinces. These watersheds are among nine that provide drinking water to Dallas, Texas. The study examines the potential benefit of "remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) for watershed management" in these five watersheds (p. iii).

Unexpected Findings in a Study of Visual Perception During the Naturalistic Near-Death Out-of-Body Experience

Description: Study of visual perception during the naturalistic near-death out-of-body experience (nND OBE), that aspect of the NDE in which the experiencer seems to view normal physical surroundings from a vantage point outside the physical body, which yielded some unexpected findings that contradicted or augmented previous research. Each of these findings is discussed relative to previous research and analyzed in light of the limitations of the current study.
