Predicting the vessel lumen area tree-ring parameter of Quercus robur with linear and nonlinear machine learning algorithms

regression by using linear spline regression and a likelihood-based model to explain nonlinearity in the relationship between tree rings and precipitation. One of the most accurate and tested process-based models, the Vaganov-Shaskin model ( VS model, Shishov et al ., 2016 ; Vaganov et al ., 2011 ), uses a piecewise linear function to model the relationship between daily environmental data and tree-rings. A similar idea is implemented in a simplified version of the VS model – the VS-Lite model ( Tolwinski-Ward et al ., 2011 ). The advantages of using nonlinear models

Some novel features of post-500°C heating blue stimulated OSL emission of fired natural quartz

-OSL simply implies that the charge responsible for emission originates from the deep trap and not the mechanism involved in OSL process. This is necessary to differentiate from the conventional OSL (325°C TL Peak). The dosimetric properties of DT-OSL were found to be good in terms of linearity and upper limit of dose estimation. The signal also satisfied various tests needed for reliable use dose estimation. 2 Experimental details The luminescence measurements were carried out on automatic Risø TL/OSL, TL-DA-15 system having a blue light-emitting diodes (λ=470 ± 30nm

Infrared stimulated luminescence dating of 19th century fluvial deposits from the upper Rhine River

( Visocekas and Guerin, 2006 ). It has been presumed that anomalous fading results from tunnelling of charge that follows strict physical laws, i.e. the signal decays logarithmically ( Visocekas, 1985 ). Following these assumptions, Huntely and Lamothe (2001) developed a procedure to correct for fading. First, storage experiments are carried out to monitor the loss of signal with time. The results of such experiments are expressed by g -values, where g is the signal loss in percent per decade, a decade being a factor of 10 in time since irradiation (Huntely and Lamothe

Investigation of the role of the production process on the luminescence of sea salt products

salt samples are manufactured on the same production line they have similar luminescence characteristics, although some slight sensitivity changes may occur, and so are amenable to evaluation using a standardized testing protocol.
