Changes in Timor Strait hydrology and thermocline structure during the past 130 ka
(2016-11-15) - Journal article
Paleostudies of the Indonesian Throughflow (ITF) are largely based on temperature and salinity reconstructions of its near surface component, whereas the variability of its lower thermocline flow has rarely been investigated. ...
Factors controlling the thermoluminescence spectra of rare earth doped calcium fluoride
(2017-04) - Journal article
Thermoluminescence spectra of rare earth doped calcium fluoride samples, both powder and single crystal, were recorded over the temperature range from 25 K to 673 K. Although some broad band features exist, the spectra are ...
The moderating effect of higher education on the intergenerational transmission of residing in poverty neighbourhoods
(2017-09-01) - Journal article
It is well-known that socioeconomic outcomes and (dis)advantage over the life course can be transmitted from parent to child. It is increasingly suggested that these intergenerational effects also have a spatial dimension, ...
