  • Library Working Environment: From the Perspective of Student Workers 

    Yang, Zheng Ye (Lan) (Chinese Librarianship: an International Electronic Journal, 2006-08-22)
    Student workers are an indispensable component of library operations. They play an important role in delivering good library services to the patrons. Without student workers, the library would not function as effectively ...
  • Supporting our troops: Library services and support for veterans 

    LeMire, Sarah (Taylor & Francis, 2017)
    Veterans are a unique population that can be found in libraries across the United States. Libraries of all types are developing new approaches to the veterans in their patron populations in the wake of the wars in Iraq and ...
  • Licensing E-Books: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly 

    Algenio, Emilie; Thompson-Young, Alexia (Taylor and Francis, 2005)
    As e-books settle into the academic market, the relationship between publishers, vendors, and libraries grows more complex. This article highlights how licenses, which govern this business affair, are no exception. From ...
  • A How-To Guide for Electronic Reserves: Or, If I Knew Then What I Know Now 

    Algenio, Emilie (Taylor & Francis LLC, 2002)
    This presents a project-planning guide for librarians new to electronic reserves. It articulates an ideal process, organized into three major steps: research, implementation, and evaluation. Within the first step, all of ...
  • Patterns of grain-size temporal variation of sediment transported by overland flow associated with moving storms: interpreting soil flume experiments 

    de Lima, J. L. M. P.; Dinis, P.A.; de Lima, M.I.P.; Cunha, P.P.; Azevedo, J.M.; Singh, V.P.; Abreu, J.M. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2011)
    This study describes and interprets the evolution of grain-size distribution of sediment yields generated in an experimental soil flume subjected to downstream and upstream moving rain storms. Results of laboratory ...
  • A copula-based precipitation forecasting model: Investigating the interdecadal modulation of ENSO’s impacts on monthly precipitation 

    Khedun, C. Prakash; Mishra, Ashok K.; Singh, Vijay P.; Giardino, John R. (2014-01-14)
    The influence of two large-scale circulation patterns (the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO)), and the effect of the interdecadal modulation of ENSO on precipitation in the state ...
  • Entropy-Copula Method for Single-Site Monthly Streamflow Simulation 

    Hao, Z.; Singh, V. P. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-06-13)
    An entropy-copula method is proposed for single-site monthly streamflow simulation. In this method, the joint distribution of adjacent monthly streamflows is constructed using the copula method, whereas the marginal ...
  • Modeling multisite streamflow dependence with maximum entropy copula 

    Hao, Z.; Singh, V. P. (American Geophysical Union, 2013)
    Synthetic streamflows at different sites in a river basin are needed for planning, operation, and management of water resources projects. Modeling the temporal and spatial dependence structure of monthly streamflow at ...
  • Simulation of the entire range of daily precipitation using a hybrid probability distribution 

    Li, Chao; Mishra, Ashok K.; Singh, Vijay P. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-03-21)
    Underestimation of extreme values is a widely acknowledged issue in daily precipitation simulation. Nonparametric precipitation generators have inherent limitations in representing extremes. Parametric generators can ...
  • The Grading Entropy-based Criteria for Structural Stability of Granular Materials and Filters 

    Fityus, Stephen; Imre, Emoke; Lorincz, Janos; Singh, Vijay P.; Talata, Istvan; Tarnai, Tibor; Trang, Phong Q. (2015-05-04)
    This paper deals with three grading entropy-based rules that describe different soil structure stability phenomena: an internal stability rule, a filtering rule and a segregation rule. These rules are elaborated on the ...
  • Some Comments on the Entropy-Based Criteria for Piping 

    Fityus, Stephen; Imre, Emoke; Nagy, Laszlo; Lorincz, Janos; Rahemi, Negar; Schanz, Tom; Singh, Vijay P. (2015-04-15)
    This paper is an extension of previous work which characterises soil behaviours using the grading entropy diagram. The present work looks at the piping process in granular soils, by considering some new data from ...
  • Integrating Entropy and Copula Theories for Hydrologic Modeling and Analysis 

    Hao, Zengchao; Singh, Vijay P. (2015-04-15)
    Entropy is a measure of uncertainty and has been commonly used for various applications, including probability inferences in hydrology. Copula has been widely used for constructing joint distributions to model the dependence ...
  • Bivariate Rainfall and Runoff Analysis Using Entropy and Copula Theories 

    Singh, Vijay P.; Zhang, Lan (2012-09-24)
    Multivariate hydrologic frequency analysis has been widely studied using: (1) commonly known joint distributions or copula functions with the assumption of univariate variables being independently identically distributed ...
  • Derivation of 2D Power-Law Velocity Distribution Using Entropy Theory 

    Fontana, Nicola; Marini, Gustavo; Singh, Vijay P. (2013-04-08)
    The one-dimensional (1D) power law velocity distribution, commonly used for computing velocities in open channel flow, has been derived empirically. However, a multitude of problems, such as scour around bridge piers, ...
  • Scrub Typhus Incidence Modeling with Meteorological Factorsin South Korea 

    Hong, Seungjin; Kim, Gilho; Kim, Hung Soo; Kim, Soojun; Kwak, Jaewon (2015-06-29)
    Since its recurrence in 1986, scrub typhus has been occurring annually and it is considered as one of the most prevalent diseases in Korea. Scrub typhus is a 3rd grade nationally notifiable disease that has greatly increased ...
  • Future Climate Data from RCP 4.5 and Occurrence of Malaria in Korea

  • Experimental Investigation of Influence of Vegetation on Flow Turbulence 

    Afzalimehr, Hossein; Mohammadzade, Nazanin; Singh, Vijay P. (Scientific & Academic Publishing, 2015)
    Vegetation in channels, rivers, reservoirs, and wetlands alters the flow turbulence characteristics. Vegetation has both positive and negative effects, depending on the objective of the hydraulic conduit. For example, it ...
