Traffic barrier crashes have been a major concern in many prior studies in traffic safety literature, especially in the crash-prone sections of mountainous regions. However, the effect of factors affecting the injury-severities resulting from crashes involving different types of traffic barriers may be different. This paper provides an...

The Guadarrama mountains are a mountain range crisscrossing the Spanish highlands, dividing the historic region of Castile in two and separating the wealthy, but rampantly overbuilt region of Madrid from the rural and undeveloped Castile-and-Leon. This project explores the possibility of addressing the three main current challenges in the area ...

Glacier surface albedo dominates glacier energy balance, thus strongly affecting the glacier mass balance. Glaciers in the Western Nyainqentanglha Mountains (WNM) experienced large mass losses in the past two decades, but long-term changes of glacier albedo and its drivers are less understood. In this study, we retrieved glacier albedo with...

Seasonal snow is the major water resource of more than a billion people around the world. In a plethora of regions in the Northern Hemisphere, agricultural, industrial, and drinking water supply are highly dependent on seasonal snow. In addition, the melting of seasonal snow regulates the magnitude and timing of high and low flows, controls the...

Intelligent agents must pursue their goals in complex environments with partial information and often limited computational capacity. Reinforcement learning methods have achieved great success by creating agents that optimize engineered reward functions, but which often struggle to learn in sparse-reward environments, generally require many...

Digital Elevation Model (DEM)-based mountain vertex extraction is one of the most useful DEM applications, providing important information to properly characterize topographic features. Current vertex-extraction techniques have considerable limitations, such as yielding low-accuracy results and generating false mountain vertices. To overcome...

China is facing the dual challenges of urbanization and motorization(Jing, 2008). The poorly organized urban centers and traditional residential planning are unable to meet the increasingly diverse demand of people. To solve these problems, the TOD model and the emerging community living circle are being favored by policy makers. Promoting urban...
