We first research the effect of the clipping with and without normalization on the Q factor of signals.
Figure 2 shows the relationship between Q factor and clipping ratio (CR) over the AWGN channel at the received SNR of 6 dB.
For a given received SNR of 8 dB, Figure 3 shows the relationship of the Q factor between clipping ratio in clipped QPSK OFDM with and without normalization after 100 km fiber transmission.

The simplest method of disposing of grass clippings is to leave them onsite.
The review illustrated that quick-release sources of N had generally higher N recovery in clippings (Petrovic, 1990).
Very few studies have examined the effects of returning clippings on turfgrass growth, N utilization, and quality.
Clipping at R4 reduced light interception on average about 20% compared with treatments not clipped at this growth stage.
Generally, no differences were observed in light interception until clipping at the R4 growth stage, which produced a similar response to narrow rows, except for plots clipped at V5 + R4 and V5 + R1 + R4, which intercepted greater levels of PAR from the period 77 to 90 DAP.
Differences were detected in wide rows when clipping occurred at V5 compared with either R4 or R1 + R4 (5.38 vs.
