Airborne LiDAR Intensity Correction Based on a New Method for Incidence Angle Correction for Improving Land-Cover Classification

Description: This article considers positional shift and rotation angle deviation of the laser scanner and the inertial measurement unit (IMU) and presents a new method for calculating the incident angle based on the rigorous geometric measurement model for airborne light detection and range (LiDAR).

Ambient urban N deposition drives increased biomass and total plant N in two native prairie grass species in the U.S. Southern Great Plains

Description: This article studies atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition in urban areas on two native prairie grass species, Schizachyrium scoparium and Nasella leucotricha. Findings indicate that while native prairie grasses may exhibit a positive biomass response to increased N deposition up to ~18 kg ha⁻¹ yr⁻¹, total inorganic N deposition is well above the estimated critical load for herbaceous plant species richness in the tallgrass prairie of the Great Plains ecoregion and thus may negatively affect these plant communities.

Are States Created Equal? Moving to a State With More Expensive Childcare Reduces Mothers' Odds of Employment

Description: This article investigates whether moving to a state with more expensive childcare is associated with lower odds of maternal employment among mothers who had been employed prior to relocation. Results show that moving to states with fewer childcare barriers is associated with higher levels of maternal employment, partly mitigating the negative labor market effects of interstate migration.

Assessment of personal exposure to particulate air pollution: the first result of City Health Outlook (CHO) project

Description: First paper of a series on the City Health Outlook (CHO) project, which aims to establish multi-scale, long-lasting, real-time urban environment and health monitoring networks. This paper is targeted at illustrating the characteristics of the participants and examining the effects of different covariates on personal exposure at various air pollution exposure levels.

Automatic Extraction of Grasses and Individual Trees in Urban Areas Based on Airborne Hyperspectral and LiDAR Data

Description: This article proposes a three-dimensional (3D) vegetation extraction workflow to extract urban grasses and trees at individual tree level in urban areas using airborne LiDAR and hyperspectral data. Results suggest that two- and three-dimensional urban vegetation extraction could play a significant role in spatial layout optimization and scientific management of urban vegetation.

Bayesian Time-Series Models in Single Case Experimental Designs: A Tutorial for Trauma Researchers

Description: Article discusses the utility of SCED data for trauma research, provides recommendations for addressing challenges specific to SCED approaches, and introduces a tutorial for two Bayesian models—the Bayesian interrupted time-series (BITS) model and the Bayesian unknown change-point (BUCP) model—that can be used to analyze the typically small sample, autocorrelated, SCED data.

Beyond Traits and States: Interpersonal Decentering Is Also Activated Social Information Processing

Description: Article drawing on a process-focused model of interpersonal decentering's causal validity, the authors manipulated activation experimentally, comparing decentering scores from expressive writing essays under standard instructions (activation condition) versus control instructions, then correlated decentering scores with use of activated language. With condition controlled, both decentering scores correlated significantly with greater proportions of present-tense verbs, positive emotion words, and cognitive words, showing trait effects.
