The variations in the biospeckle pattern intensity were quantified using the method of Difference of Absolute Values (DAV) (Cardoso & Braga, 2014), which is based on the calculations of THSP
intensity variations generated from the biospeckle laser patterns according to Eq.
As part of the first nationwide reconnaissance of the occurrence of pharmaceuticals, hormones, and other organic wastewater contaminants (OWCs) in the US, water-quality data was collected by THSP
scientists during 1999 and 2000.
Then, a new image, named the "Temporary History of the Speckle Pattern (THSP)," is constructed by setting, side by side, the chosen column of the first image, the same column of the second image, and so on, 512 times.
In each row of THSP, the speckle appears "stretched" in the time direction showing, horizontally, an elongated shape.
The Texas High School Project (THSP) supported by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Communities Foundation of Texas as well as Texas Gov.
"The irony is that throughout the last few decades, Texas has been a breeding ground for the technology industry, yet math and science achievement the basic building blocks of the technology industry--is lagging, particularly among minority and economically challenged students in our state," says Susan Dell, co-founder and chairwoman of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, which partially funds the THSP.
Current management programs at Thousand Hills State Park (THSP
) near Kirksville, Missouri provide the opportunity to assess the effects that prescribed burns can have upon small mammal communities, and the degree to which the communities change over time.
