    Ruiz Costa-Jussà, Marta; Casas Manzanares, Noé; Escolano Peinado, Carlos; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article innovatively addresses machine translation from Chinese to Catalan using neural pivot strategies trained without any direct parallel data. The Catalan language is very similar to Spanish from a linguistic point ...
  • Benefits of applying nodal sampling to SMOS data over semi-enclosed seas and strongly RFI-contaminated regions 

    González Gambau, Verónica; Olmedo, Estrella; Martinez, J.; Turiel, Antonio; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Oliva, Roger; Martín Neira, Manuel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Radio Frequency Interferences (RFI) are still an important source of contamination in SMOS data. The application of nodal sampling (NS) to brightness temperature images helps to mitigate the degradation that RFIs produce ...
