Seasonal variation in apparent conductivity and soil salinity at two Narragansett Bay, RI salt marshes
Joseph Smoak –– This approach to salinity mapping could greatly contribute to other investigations examining responses to salinity changes.
A systematic review on literature-based discovery workflow
Tzung-Pei Hong –– It is a good review paper in this field and may provide some reference value to readers.
A Sparse-Modeling Based Approach for Class Specific Feature Selection
Tzung-Pei Hong –– It is a good paper and may provide some reference values to the scholars in this field.
Accurate spatiotemporal predictions of daily stream temperature from statistical models accounting for interactions between climate and landscape
Douglas Burns –– Stream temperature is an important concern in a warming climate, especially for the viability of cold water aquatic species such as salmon. New approaches such as described here are important to advancing our understanding of the physical controls on stream temperature dynamics.
Mercuric pollution of surface water, superficial sediments, Nile tilapia (Oreochromis nilotica Linnaeus 1758 [Cichlidae]) and yams (Dioscorea alata) in auriferous areas of Namukombe stream, Syanyonja, Busia, Uganda
Rachel Ann Hauser-Davis –– The ecotoxicology discipline is extremely important for environmental and public health risk assessments, and multidisciplinary.
Lead isotope trends and sources in the atmosphere at the artificial wetland
Xinfeng Wang –– Major sources of lead in the atmosphere over wetland in China during different seasons are identified by using the advanced stable isotope method.
A novel GIS-based ensemble technique for flood susceptibility mapping using evidential belief function and support vector machine: Brisbane, Australia
Marco Cavalli –– The ensemble method proposed in this work can help to improve the accuracy of flood susceptibility maps.
Expanding walls and shrinking beaches: loss of natural coastline in Okinawa Island, Japan
Xavier Pochon –– This innovative study used GIS and remote sensing technologies to measure the extension of coastline alterations in Okinawa, Japan, over the last 50 years. This approach offers great values for conservation efforts and coastal planning.
Validity of the iLOAD® app for resistance training monitoring
Scotty Butcher –– This new app solves a problem with current apps in the resistance monitoring literature by allowing real-time velocity feedback. The authors have shown excellent validity compared with direct velocity measures.
Mobile learning in dentistry: usage habits, attitudes and perceptions of undergraduate students
Abhiram Maddi –– It may well be one of the first articles to address mobile based learning attitudes among dental students.

Korean Peninsula had a high population density of leopards, they were extirpated from South Korea by 1970. Genetic material from old skin of a leopard captured in South Korea in the 1930s revealed that they belonged to the same clade as the Amur leopard. https://t.co/3Bc8dRqBqn
