Gathering Leadership Momentum Across Great Distances: Creating An Online Community Of Practice, Erin L. Davis, Danielle Theiss-White Jan 2009

Gathering Leadership Momentum Across Great Distances: Creating An Online Community Of Practice, Erin L. Davis, Danielle Theiss-White

Erin Davis

At the 2007 Mountain Plains Library Association Leadership (MPLA) Institute, held in New Mexico, USA, eight academic librarians formed an online multi-state, multigenerational community of practice. MPLA is a twelve-state library association within the United States. Using Google Groups™, the members formed an online environment called the MPLA Community of Practice for continuing development of the leadership skills presented at the Institute. These early-career librarians represent diverse educational backgrounds and work in libraries serving varied populations with differing disciplinary emphases.

The group meets monthly with each member preparing and facilitating online discussions, complete with personal assessments, topical readings, and questions ...

Algorithm Development Of The Aglite-Lidar Instrument, Christian Marchant May 2008

Algorithm Development Of The Aglite-Lidar Instrument, Christian Marchant

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The Aglite system is a three-wavelength lidar plus a suite of instruments for measuring particulate emission levels near agricultural facilities. The lidar performs 3D scans of the air surrounding the facility and maps the concentration of particulates in the atmosphere surrounding the facility with high spatial and temporal resolution. Data from the conventional instruments are used to calibrate the lidar.

The Aglite system includes a retrieval program, which combines the data from the lidar instrument with data from the conventional instruments to produce measurements of particulate concentration values. This thesis describes the design of the lidar data retrieval program, the ...
