    polymeric packaging material - additive migration - general validity - diffusion - foods - proportionality - component - quantity - proofs
    A method is presented to predict diffusion coefficients in polyolefins using stochastic modelling. A large number of experimental diffusion coefficients, published in the literature as one dataset, was used to derive probability distributions of diffusion coefficients in the polymers low-density polyethylene and linear low-density polyethylene, medium- and high-density polyethylene, and polypropylene. An equation is proposed to describe the diffusion coefficient as a function of the molar mass of the migrant. Model parameters and standard deviations are predicted by minimizing the sum of squared errors and the residuals are used to check the assumed types of probability distribution. The experimental data can be described by a log-normal distribution. It is shown how the derived probability distributions can be used as input for migration predictions. The method presented provides information about the most likely migration results for a given packaging¿food simulant combination. This is important for prediction of the probability that a given migration limit may be exceeded
    High-Resolution InSAR Image Simulation for Forest Canopies
    Varekamp, C. ; Hoekman, D.H. - \ 2002
    IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing 40 (2002)7. - ISSN 0196-2892 - p. 1648 - 1655.
    High-resolution interferometric airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of Indonesian tropical rain forests have been acquired during the European Space Agency (ESA) Indonesian Radar Experiment (INDREX) 1996 campaign. Research efforts are directed toward development of automated canopy reconstruction algorithms. In this paper, interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) image simulation is discussed as one of the tools to support development of such inversion algorithms. First, the relevant physics, observation geometry, and radar characteristics are described. It is assumed that a forest can be modeled as a cloud of uniformly distributed isotropically scattering elements located within crown volumes. These volumes were measured during a field experiment for a 7.2 ha plot. Simulated data comprise intensity, phase, as well as coherence images. These are compared, in a statistical sense, with real data acquired in C- and X-bands. The canopy attenuation was simulated over a range of values. The normalized second intensity moment, the mean coherence magnitude, the coherence histogram, and the autocorrelation function of coherence were taken as measures for comparison. It can be concluded that simulated and real C-band images compare well for an extinction coefficient in the range of 0.15-0.3 m/sup -1/. For X-band, the selected measures of agreement lead to contradictions, indicating that the physical assumptions made may be less valid than for C-band.

    The Indonesian Radar Experiment (INDREX) Campaign was executed in Indonesia to study the potential of high-resolution interferometric airborne radar in support of sustainable tropical forest management. Severe cloud cover limits the use of aerial photography, which is currently applied on a routine basis to extract information at the tree level. Interferometric radar images may be a viable alternative once radar imaging at the tree level is sufficiently understood. It is shown that interferometric height images can contain large height and displacement errors for individual trees but that this problem can be solved to a large extent using models for the vertical distribution of backscatter intensity and an extension of the Van Cittert-Zernike theorem. The predicted loss of coherence in lay-over regions of emergent trees is shown to be in good agreement with the loss of coherence as observed in the high resolution radar data (Pierson correlation coefficient=0.94). Several correction methods for height and displacement errors are proposed. It is shown that a simple approach already gives a good correction. Semi-empirical correction models, which can be calibrated for forest structure, perform even better

    Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) is investigated as a method for 3D tree mapping. When operational, the method may be important for monitoring forests with a persistent cloud cover such as tropical rain forests. The problem of crown displacement due to lay-over in a vegetation with a large vertical variation in scatterer height is studied. It is shown that crown displacements can be corrected for, by using coherence. An analytical expression for the coherence is derived which can be used for crown position corrections. The model is validated and shown to be consistent with observations. The water cloud model has been extended with interferometric phase, coherence and crown geometry. This model is used to simulate realistic InSAR images of a 3D forest canopy using measurements of 1064 trees. It is validated by comparing observed with simulated image statistics. The normalised second intensity moment, coherence histogram and coherence autocorrelation in range direction are used for this purpose.
    Results indicate a good agreement at C-band for an extinction coefficient of 0.3 per meter. Two image transforms are derived based on Gaussian scattering assumptions. These transforms may be used for automated canopy reconstruction. Finally, the simulation method and the intensity image transform are used to study the effect of InSAR system parameters on the position accuracy.
    Segmentation of high-resolution InSar data of tropical forest using Fourier parameterised deformable models
    Varekamp, C. ; Hoekman, D.H. - \ 2001
    International Journal of Remote Sensing 22 (2001)12. - ISSN 0143-1161 - p. 2339 - 2350.
    Currently, tree maps are produced from field measurements that are time consuming and expensive. Application of existing techniques based on aerial photography is often hindered by cloud cover. This has initiated research into the segmentation of high resolution airborne interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for deriving tree maps. A robust algorithm is constructed to optimally position closed boundaries. The boundary of a tree crown will be best approximated when at all points on the boundary, the z-coordinate image gradient is maximum, and directed inwards orthogonal to the boundary. This property can be expressed as the result of a line integral along the boundary. Boundaries with a large value for the line integral are likely to be tree crowns. This paper focuses on the search procedure and on illustrating how smoothing can be used to prevent the search from becoming trapped in a local optimum. The final crown detection stage is not described in this paper but could be based on the gradient and implemented using the above described value for the line integral. Results of this paper indicate that a Fourier parametrization with only three harmonics (nine parameters) can describe the shape variation in the 2D crown projection in sufficient detail. Current ground datasets are not suitable for obtaining detection statistics such as the percentage of tree crowns detected and the number of false alarms. Better ground datasets will be needed to evaluate algorithm performance for real tree mapping situations.
