Fuzzy Mediation as a Dynamic Extension to Information Fusion
This paper presents an innovative approach to the field of information fusion. Fuzzy mediation differentiates itself from other algorithms, as this approach is dynamic in nature. The experiments reported in this work analyze ...
The role of contract managers in the implementation of charitable choice in Maryland
Using case study methodology, this research study addressed the two questions: what are the roles of public sector contract managers in the implementation of the Charitable Choice provision in Maryland and how was the ...
Innovations and strategies for teaching online
(Academic Exchange Quarterly, 2009)
The development and delivery of online courses has become more sophisticated as course management systems have improved and the information available on the internet has proliferated. Faculty involvement and administrative ...
The impact of resuspension on sediment mercury dynamics, and methylmercury production and fate: A mesocosm study
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of resuspension on the fate and bioaccumulation of mercury (THg) and methylmercury (MeHg) in shallow estuarine environments, using mesocosms. Two 4-week experiments ...
Biofiltration, water quality, and sediment processes
Effect of oysters Crassostrea virginica and bottom shear velocity on benthic–pelagic coupling and estuarine water quality
Increasing the biomass of bivalve suspensions feeders has been proposed as a means to improve water quality in eutrophic estuaries such as the Chesapeake Bay. However, water quality impacts are likely to be determined by ...
Combined water-column mixing and benthic boundary-layer flow in mesocosms: key for realistic benthic–pelagic coupling studies
We developed 2 scaled linked mesocosms that realistically mimicked both water-column mixing and benthic boundary-layer flow, enabling more realistic benthic–pelagic coupling experiments. The first was a ‘large’ 1000 l ...
Changes in the liquidity of closed-end country funds after the introduction of World Equity Benchmarks
In 1996, the first exchange-traded funds (ETFs) designed to track a subset of the Morgan Stanley Capital International country indices were approved under the name World Equity Benchmarks (acronym “WEBS”TM). We examine the ...
The effect of resuspension on the fate of total mercury and methyl mercury in a shallow estuarine ecosystem: a mesocosm study
Sediments are the major repository of mercury in estuaries and could be a significant source of Hg to the overlying water column via release from the solid phase during resuspension. There is, however, little information ...
