  • Dendroclimatic reconstruction of late Holocene summer temperatures in the Scottish Highlands 

    Rydval, Miloš (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-22) - Thesis
    This thesis focuses on reconstructing past temperatures using Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) tree-ring chronologies developed from Scotland. The research aims to fill a spatial and temporal gap in understanding northwest ...
  • The density and diversity of birds on farmland in West Africa 

    Hulme, Mark F. (University of St Andrews, 2007-11-30) - Thesis
    The area of land farmed in Africa is predicted to double by the year 2050 yet very few African studies have investigated the impact of different farming intensities and regimes on bird communities. This study examined avian ...
  • Density and temperature characterization of long-scale length, near-critical density controlled plasma produced from ultra-low density plastic foam 

    Chen, S. N.; Iwawaki, T.; Morita, K.; Antici, P.; Baton, S. D.; Filippi, F.; Habara, H.; Nakatsutsumi, M.; Nicolaï, P.; Nazarov, Wigen; Rousseaux, C.; Starodubstev, M.; Tanaka, K. A.; Fuchs, J. (2016-02-29) - Journal article
    The ability to produce long-scale length (i.e. millimeter scale-length), homogeneous plasmas is of interest in studying a wide range of fundamental plasma processes. We present here a validated experimental platform to ...
  • Density estimation and time trend analysis of large herbivores in Nagarhole, India 

    Gangadharan, Aditya (2005) - Thesis
    Density estimates for six large herbivore species were obtained through analysis of line transect data from Nagarhole National Park, south-western India, collected between 1989 and 2000. These species were Chital (Axis ...
  • Density estimation implications of increasing ambient noise on beaked whale click detection and classification 

    Marques, Tiago Andre Lamas Oliveira; Ward, Jessica; Jarvis, Susan; Moretti, David; Morrissey, Ronald; DiMarzio, Nancy; Thomas, Len (University of St Andrews, 2010) - Report
    Acoustic based density estimates are being increasingly used. Usually density estimation methods require one to evaluate the effective survey area of the acoustic sensors, or equivalently estimate the mean detection probability ...
  • Density functional study of interactions between fluorinated cyclohexanes and arenes 

    Cormanich, Rodrigo A.; Durie, Alastair; Bjornsson, Ragnar; Rittner, Roberto; O'Hagan, David; Buehl, Michael (2014-06) - Journal article
    1H-NMR Chemical shifts of all-syn-1,2,4,5-tetrafluorocyclohexane (1), all-syn-1,2,3,4-tetrafluorocyclohexane (2), and their complexes with benzene are calculated at the BHandH/6-311+G(2d,p) level. The observed shielding ...
  • Density of optical degrees of freedom : intensity, linear and angular momentum 

    Mazilu, Michael (SPIE, 2014-02-25) - Conference item
    For any optical system, optical eigenmodes describe solutions of Maxwells equations that are orthogonal to each other. In their simplest free space form, these modes correspond, for example, to Bessel, Laguerre-Gaussian ...
  • Deontic Reasoning Across Contexts 

    Snedegar, Justin (Springer, 2014) - Book item
    Contrastivism about `ought' holds that `ought' claims are relativized, at least implicitly, to sets of mutually exclusive but not necessarily jointly exhaustive alternatives. This kind of theory can solve puzzles that face ...
  • The dependence of coronal loop heating on the characteristics of slow photospheric motions 

    Ritchie, M. L.; Wilmot-Smith, A. L.; Hornig, G. (2016-06-06) - Journal article
    The Parker hypothesis assumes that heating of coronal loops occurs due to reconnection, induced when photospheric motions braid field lines to the point of current sheet formation. In this contribution we address the ...
  • Dependence of GAMA galaxy halo masses on the cosmic web environment from 100 deg2 of KiDS weak lensing data 

    Brouwer, Margot M.; Cacciato, Marcello; Dvornik, Andrej; Eardley, Lizzie; Heymans, Catherine; Hoekstra, Henk; Kuijken, Konrad; McNaught-Roberts, Tamsyn; Sifón, Cristóbal; Viola, Massimo; Alpaslan, Mehmet; Bilicki, Maciej; Bland-Hawthorn, Joss; Brough, Sarah; Choi, Ami; Driver, Simon P.; Erben, Thomas; Grado, Aniello; Hildebrandt, Hendrik; Holwerda, Benne W.; Hopkins, Andrew M.; de Jong, Jelte T. A.; Liske, Jochen; McFarland, John; Nakajima, Reiko; Napolitano, Nicola R.; Norberg, Peder; Peacock, John A.; Radovich, Mario; Robotham, Aaron S. G.; Schneider, Peter; Sikkema, Gert; van Uitert, Edo; Kleijn, Gijs Verdoes; Valentijn, Edwin A. (2016-11-11) - Journal article
    Galaxies and their dark matter haloes are part of a complex network of mass structures, collectively called the cosmic web. Using the tidal tensor prescription these structures can be classified into four cosmic environments: ...
  • The depiction of St. John the Baptist's legend in Florence, 1300-1500 

    Chen, Yi-Pei (University of St Andrews, 1999) - Thesis
    This thesis focuses on the portrayal of St. John the Baptist in Florence during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The first chapter is devoted to the examination of the Baptist's legend as outlined in the Bible and ...
  • Depictions of sainthood in the Latin saints' lives of twelfth-century England 

    Harris, Eilidh (University of St Andrews, 2014-07-28) - Thesis
    This thesis examines the depiction of saintly figures within the Latin vitae of twelfth-century England (1066–c.1215). It tests the extent to which these depictions are homogeneous and examines what factors may have shaped ...
  • Depletion influences restraint, but does it influence conflict identification? Expanding on Osgood and Muraven (2015) 

    Myrseth, Kristian Ove; Wollbrant, Conny (2015-09) - Journal item
    Osgood and Muraven (2015) show that cognitive depletion reduces pro-social behaviors, but not pro-social attitudes. We expand on the authors’ interpretation by relating their results to recent theorizing on the relationship ...
  • Depletion of nonlinearity in the pressure force driving Navier-Stokes flows : nonlinear depletion in NS flows 

    Tran, Chuong Van; Yu, Xinwei (2015-04-17) - Journal article
    The dynamics of the velocity norms ||u||Lq for q ≥ 3, in Navier-Stokes flows is studied. The pressure term that drives this dynamics has a high degree of nonlinear depletion, which owes its origin to a genuine negative ...
  • Depression : cognitive, social, environmental and emotional factors 

    Holttum, Susan (University of St Andrews, 1991) - Thesis
    This work examined four issues, in relation to both the experience of depression, and vulnerability to depression. There were four empirical studies, each with two parts. The first study examined the role of cognitions, ...
  • Depth perception in disparity-defined objects : finding the balance between averaging and segregation 

    Cammack, Philip Peter Kenneth; Harris, Julie (2016-06-19) - Journal article
    Deciding what constitutes an object, and what background, is an essential task for the visual system. This presents a conundrum: averaging over the visual scene is required to obtain a precise signal for object segregation, ...
  • Depth perception not found in human observers for static or dynamic anti-correlated random dot stereograms 

    Hibbard, Paul B.; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Haigh, Emma C.; Adrain, Melanie (2014-01-08) - Journal article
    One of the greatest challenges in visual neuroscience is that of linking neural activity with perceptual experience. In the case of binocular depth perception, important insights have been achieved through comparing neural ...
  • Depth perception with gaze-contingent depth of field 

    Mauderer, M.; Conte, S.; Nacenta, M.A.; Vishwanath, D. (ACM, 2014-04-26) - Conference item
    Blur in images can create the sensation of depth because it emulates an optical property of the eye; namely, the limited depth of field created by the eye's lens. When the human eye looks at an object, this object appears ...
  • Der Nationalsozialismus 

    Bavaj, Riccardo (be.bra, 2016-02) - Book
  • A derivational model of discontinuous parsing 

    Nederhof, Mark Jan; Yli-Jyra, Anssi (Springer, 2017) - Conference item
    The notion of latent-variable probabilistic context-free derivation of syntactic structures is enhanced to allow heads and unrestricted discontinuities. The chosen formalization covers both constituent parsing and dependency ...
