  • Beaked whales respond to simulated and actual navy sonar 

    Tyack, Peter L.; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Moretti, David; Southall, Brandon L.; Claridge, Diane E.; Durban, John W.; Clark, Christopher W.; D'Amico, Angela; DiMarzio, Nancy; Jarvis, Susan; McCarthy, Elena; Morrissey, Ronald; Ward, Jessica; Boyd, Ian L. (2011-03-14) - Journal article
    Beaked whales have mass stranded during some naval sonar exercises, but the cause is unknown. They are difficult to sight but can reliably be detected by listening for echolocation clicks produced during deep foraging ...
  • Does access to neighbourhood green space promote a healthy duration of sleep? Novel findings from a cross-sectional study of 259 319 Australians 

    Astell-Burt, Thomas; Feng, Xiaoqi; Kolt, Gregory S. (2013-08-13) - Journal article
    Objectives: Experiments demonstrate that exposure to parks and other 'green spaces' promote favourable psychological and physiological outcomes. As a consequence, people who reside in greener neighbourhoods may also have ...
  • Half adder capabilities of a coupled quantum dot device 

    Pfeffer, P; Hartmann, F; Neri, I; Schade, A; Emmerling, M; Kamp, M; Gammaitoni, L; Hoefling, Sven; Worschech, L (2016-05-27) - Journal article
    In this paper we demonstrate two realizations of a half adder based on a voltage-rectifying mechanism involving two Coulomb-coupled quantum dots. First, we examine the ranges of operation of the half adder's individual ...
  • How effectively do horizontal and vertical response strategies of long-finned pilot whales reduce sound exposure from naval sonar? 

    Wensveen, Paulus Jacobus; von Benda-Beckmann, Alexander M; Ainslie, Michael A; Lam, Frans-Peter A; Kvadsheim, Petter H; Tyack, Peter L; Miller, Patrick J O (2015-05) - Journal article
    The behaviour of a marine mammal near a noise source can modulate the sound exposure it receives. We demonstrate that two long-finned pilot whales both surfaced in synchrony with consecutive arrivals of multiple sonar ...
