Seismic amplitude study is a crucial aspect in reservoir characterization as it helps to analyze seismic responses before interpretation. In this study, an attempt was made to identifying the reservoirs present in the High ...
• #### INTER-OBSERVER AGREEMENT AND THE EFFECTS OF ETHNICITY ON OBSERVATIONAL CODING OF AFFECT ﻿

(2013-12)
Observational research has shown that ethnicity of coders can bias their coding of people of different ethnic origin. However, observational coding systems of affect assume that emotion is universal and can be reliably ...
• #### Interaction of Solitary Waves with a Submerged Breakwater and Experimental Visualizations of Induced Vortex Characteristics ﻿

(2017-12-05)
A combined analytical and experimental investigation of solitary waves interacting with a submerged impermeable breakwater is presented in this study to examine the fluid flow aspects of the wave overtopping phenomena. To ...
• #### Interactions between Sulfur Oxides and a Pt-Based Diesel Oxidation Catalyst ﻿

(2015-08)
Sulfur is a common poison for automotive catalysts. Sulfur oxides in the engine exhaust adsorb onto and interact with catalytic converters leading to catalyst deactivation. SO2 is the main sulfur species exiting the engine, ...
• #### Interactions on Complex Networks: Inference Algorithms and Applications ﻿

(2013-05)
