3D-printen van hoge resolutie terreinmodellen met overlays van geologie en orthofoto’s met ArcGIS en Blender
At the GIS-studio of the Faculty of Science (FNWI) at the University of Amsterdam, a project has been completed in which two maps (models) are produced in 3D using ArcGIS, Blender and a 3D printer. 3D printing is an emerging ...
Biomolecular environment, quantification, and intracellular interaction of multifunctional magnetic SERS nanoprobes
Multifunctional composite nanoprobes consisting of iron oxide nanoparticles linked to silver and gold nanoparticles, Ag–Magnetite and Au–Magnetite, respectively, were introduced by endocytic uptake into cultured fibroblast ...
Surface-enhanced hyper-Raman and Raman hyperspectral mapping
We investigate distributions of crystal violet and malachite green on plasmonic surfaces by principal component analysis (PCA) imaging of surface-enhanced hyper-Raman scattering (SEHRS) data. As a two-photon excited Raman ...
Policy change, land use, and agriculture: The case of soy production and cattle ranching in Brazil, 2001-2012
The Brazilian Amazon has experienced one of the world's highest deforestation rates in the last decades. Cattle ranching and soy expansion constitute the major drivers of deforestation, both through direct conversion and ...
Deglaciation and drainage-pattern development in the eastern Uckermark, Brandenburg, Germany
After retreat from the Angermünde Ice Margin, the Weichselian inland ice sheet fell apart into different independently acting ice tongues in the eastern Uckermark. In this region (bordering Poland), between the Angermünde ...
Childhood overweight in Berlin: intra-urban differences and underlying influencing factors
BACKGROUND: In recent years, childhood overweight and obesity have become an increasing and challenging phenomenon in Western cities. A lot of studies have focused on the analysis of factors such as individual dispositions ...
Mental health in the slums of Dhaka - a geoepidemiological study
BACKGROUND: Urban health is of global concern because the majority of the world's population lives in urban areas. Although mental health problems (e.g. depression) in developing countries are highly prevalent, such issues ...
Assessment of land use factors associated with dengue cases in Malaysia using Boosted Regression Trees
The transmission of dengue disease is influenced by complex interactions among vector, host and virus. Land use such as water bodies or certain agricultural practices have been identified as likely risk factors for dengue ...
