Light-Activated Sensitive Probes for Amine Detection
Our new, simple, and accurate colorimetric method is based on diarylethenes (DAEs) for the rapid detection of a wide range of primary and secondary amines. The probes consist of aldehyde- or ketone-substituted diarylethenes, ...
Repeated glacial lake outburst flood threatening the oldest Buddhist monastery in north-western Nepal
Since 2004, Halji village, home of the oldest Buddhist Monastery in north-western Nepal, has suffered from recurrent glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs). A sudden englacial drainage of a supraglacial lake, located at a ...
Impacts devalue the potential of large-scale terrestrial CO2 removal through biomass plantations
Large-scale biomass plantations (BPs) are often considered a feasible and safe climate engineering proposal for extracting carbon from the atmosphere and, thereby, reducing global mean temperatures. However, the capacity ...
Werkzeuge der Signalverarbeitung
Grundlagen, Anwendungsbeispiele, Übungsaufgaben (2. Auflage)
Die digitale Signalverarbeitung hat sich zu einem akzeptierten, eigenständigen Wissenschaftsgebiet entwickelt. Das dokumentieren nicht zuletzt die zahlreichen Lehrbücher. Ein Standardwissen hat sich etabliert, mit dem viele ...
Why Do(n’t) People Move When They Get Older? Estimating the Willingness to Relocate in Diverse Ageing Cities
Two of the dominant processes shaping today’s European cities are the ageing and diversification of the population. Given that the range of action usually decreases in later life, the living environment around the place ...
ANONUS: Anonymous Bonus Point System with Fraud Detection
Bonus point systems are widely used for rewarding customer loyalty in both traditional and electronic commerce scenarios. Merchants aim to additionally increase revenue by targeted advertising using customer data. At the ...
Challenges of Misbehavior Detection in Industrial Wireless Networks
In recent years, wireless technologies are increasingly adopted in many application domains that were either unconnected before or exclusively used cable networks. This paradigm shift towards - often ad-hoc - wireless ...
Temporal constraints on future accumulation-area loss of a major Arctic ice cap due to climate change (Vestfonna, Svalbard)
Arctic glaciers and ice caps are major contributors to past, present and future sea-level fluctuations. Continued global warming may eventually lead to the equilibrium line altitudes of these ice masses rising above their ...
Surface energy and mass balance at Purogangri ice cap, central Tibetan Plateau, 2001–2011
Most glaciers on the Tibetan Plateau are difficult to assess as they are located in remote regions at high altitude. This study focuses on the surface energy-balance (SEB) and mass-balance (MB) characteristics of Purogangri ...
