    • F1. An index of maximal land-atmosphere coupling and its use in estimating evaporative fraction across a range of Ameriflux sites 

      Salvucci, Guido D.; Gentine, Pierre (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Examination of heat and moisture fluxes at a wide range of Ameriflux sites reveals what appears to be an emergent property of the relative humidity profile, possibly due to strong coupling of the land-atmosphere system. ...
    • F1. Using Temperature-Based Estimations of Radiation to approximate Potential Evapotranspiration 

      Archibald, Josephine A; Walter, M. Todd (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      It is well established that potential evapotranspiration (PET) can be reliably estimated using the energy budget at the canopy or land surface. However, in most cases the necessary measurements are not available. Because ...

      Study of lake evaporation includes various aspects of Dr Brutsaert’s interests such as the exchange processes on water surface, the development of internal boundary layer, estimation of evaporation rate, among others. In ...
    • F3. Hydrology in a Dutch Polder Catchment: Natural Processes in a Man-Made Landscape 

      Brauer, Claudia; Stricker, Han; Uijlenhoet, Remko (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Experimental catchments are traditionally located in areas with limited human influence, but the societal and financial losses due to hydrological extremes are often larger in more densely populated areas. In The Netherlands ...
    • F3. Regional Evaporation Using Atmospheric Boundary Layer Profiles (a.k.a Brutsaert’s Balloons) 

      Kustas, William P. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Land surface temperature (LST) from thermal remote sensing is a surface boundary condition that is strongly linked to the partitioning of the available energy between latent (evapotranspiration) and sensible heat flux. ...
    • F4. Country-Wide Rainfall Maps from a Commercial Cellular Telephone Network 

      Overeem, Aart; Leijnse, Hidde; Uijlenhoet, Remko (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Accurate rainfall observations with high spatial and temporal resolutions are needed for many applications, for instance, as input for hydrological models. Weather radars often provide data with sufficient spatial and ...
    • The Fabric Flight Connection 

      Coffman, Charlotte (1997)
      The Fabric Flight Connection is a handbook detailing principles of flight, fibrous materials used in flight, the function of garments in relation to materials, resources, and activities that relate to flight and fabric. ...
    • Fabrication, Characterization, And Modeling Of Algan/Gan High Electron Mobility Transistors 

      Harvard, Ekaterina (2013-05-26)
      Initially, advances in the high frequency markets were begun by work in Gallium Arsenide systems. In recent years, however, the focus has shifted to the promise of ever higher power at ever higher frequency with the emergence ...
    • FABRICATIONS 

      Coffman, Charlotte (2015-09)
      FABRICATIONS introduces basic fabric construction techniques for young people to learn to weave, braid, twine, wrap and knot yarns into decorative textiles. A final Design Challenge requires youth to design and create a ...
    • Facade 

      Mateas, Michael; Stern, Andrew (2005-07)
      Facade is an artificial intelligence-based art/research experiment in electronic narrative - an attempt to move beyond traditional branching or hyper-linked narrative to create a fully-realized, one-act interactive drama. ...
    • Face Vectors And Hilbert Functions 

      Chong, Kai Fong Ernest (2015-08-17)
      This dissertation builds upon two well-known theorems: Macaulay's theorem on the Hilbert functions of graded ideals, and the Kruskal-Katona theorem on the face vectors of simplicial complexes. There are four parts in the ...
    • Face Vectors Of Subdivisions Of Balls 

      Kolins, Samuel (2011-05-29)
      A fundamental invariant of a subdivision of a space into cells is its collection of face numbers or f -vector. A major area of study is understanding the possible f -vectors of various types of subdivisions. Most of this ...
