A mathematical analysis on Spinosaurus mass.
Description of the method:
Graphical double integration performed by Matblab program.
We calculated the mass of the North african theropod dinosaur Spinosaurus aegyptiacus, using a graphical double integration method. We believe GDI is in itself, and without a doubt, one of the best methods to calculatte the mass of extint organisms, and the best that can be used using a multi views silhouette from the animal. The method averages a big amount of eliptical sections to aproximate the volume of a complex 3D object. The more eliptical sections, the more accurate the result will be, when a number of slices made is surpassed the result will be almost real life-like.
This matlab program utilizes digital image processing technology to analize two silhouettes from different views. It counts the number of non white pixels in every pixel-wide column from the image, and produces one slice per pixel. In response, the program is extremely sensitive to irregularities in the silho

I haven't been on DeviantArt for a while, so I'll keep this top part brief. I went to #SVP2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and was ecstatic to learn about all the great new research going on. There was tons of great stuff throughout the meeting and I met a lot of great people, but I've inevitably gotten a lot of information requests regarding new work being done at the meeting, and while the abstract is online for everyone to read, there's a lot of information from the presentations in particular that aren't in there. This is all the stuff I was able to sit in on and and write notes about. Keep in mind I purposely kept out presentation material if it was under embargo, or per request of the authors, as well as the fact that pretty much all of this is unpublished and should be taken with much skepticism until properly published. Nonetheless, I feel like this should be available somewhere for people to r
