Various techniques are available to locate magnetic bodies buried in the subsurface, particularly when it comes to mining explorations. Existing techniques have restrictions and problems, such as only working with profile data, being restricted to a specific source type, or failing in the presence...

The BASE architecture provides a platform that allows any human or machine resource to self-organise around activities that need them. It is self-improving, incrementally scalable, and adapts to the structure of the organisation. BASE-enabled resources and activities allow traceability, visibility...

Postharvest table grapes are susceptible to fungal infection even when stored at the optimal temperature of −0.5°C. The most important pathogen of stored Table Grapes is grey mould, which is caused by Botrytis cinerea. Some countries fumigate their grapes with sulphur dioxide gas. However, if the...
