This paper assesses the value of mitigating erosive runoff events in a severely prone watershed of France using a discrete choice experiment approach. Good farming practices are integrated together with flood protection programs within a common management policy. The inclusion of risk exposure and socio-demographic variables in a random parameter logit model allows accounting for both latent and observed heterogeneity in preferences. Results show substantial benefits for each of the management alternatives valued. Results also identify that preferences significantly vary across respondents which suggests that policy makers should consider heterogeneity in preferences when designing policies for various area profiles in order to closely monitor welfare improvements. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Existing methods to monitor intracranial pressure (ICP) are invasive. However, noninvasive monitoring via the auditory system is possible because of fluctuation of ICP transfer to the inner ear through the connections between the cerebral spinal fluid and the cochlear fluids. In order to measure ICP we can monitor distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAE) responses measured from the inner ear but before, there are certain steps of processing applied to the measured signals in order to obtain clear signals really presenting the true responses and allowing users to properly diagnose the ICP variation and this is what we will see in the graphical user interface which includes the proper steps of processing. © 2013 IEEE.
