Challenging the sensitivity limits of paleomagnetism : magnetostratigraphy of weakly magnetized Guadalupian-Lopingian (Permian) limestone from Kyushu, Japan
(2015-01-15) - Journal article,
Despite their utility for bio- and chemostratigraphy, many carbonate platform sequences have been difficult to analyze using paleomagnetic techniques due to their extraordinarily weak natural remanent magnetizations (NRMs). ...
Controlling for the effects of information in a public goods discrete choice model
(2016-03) - Journal article,
This paper develops a reduced form method of controlling for differences in information sets of subjects in public good discrete choice models, using stated preference data. The main contribution of our method comes from ...
The policy challenge of waste-to-energy : lessons from France
(2016-08-31) - Journal article,
National policy-making is increasingly re-orienting towards the common goal of achieving effective renewable energy solutions. This paper focuses on the policy challenges of technological advances in energy recovery from ...
Not so non-marine? Revisiting the Stoer Group and the Mesoproterozoic biosphere
(2017-06-13) - Journal article,
The Poll a’Mhuilt Member of the Stoer Group (Torridonian Supergroup) in Scotland has been heralded as a rare window into the ecology of Mesoproterozoic terrestrial environments. Its unusually high molybdenum concentrations ...
Stable vanadium isotopes as a redox proxy in magmatic systems
(2016-10-26) - Journal article,
Recycling pathways of multivalent elements, that impact our understanding of diverse geological processes from ore formation to the rise of atmospheric oxygen, depend critically on the spatial and temporal variation of ...
The isotope geochemistry of zinc and copper
(2017-01-31) - Journal article,
Epidemiology data from the Scottish Health and Ethnicity Linkage Study (SHELS)
(2014-11-27) - Journal article,
We linked the 2001 Scottish Census, which contains ethnicity, socio-economic and demographic data to health and death records, creating an anonymised retrospective cohort study of 4.65 million people to assess the association ...
A method for estimating wage, using standardised occupational classifications, for use in medical research in the place of self-reported income
(2014-04-28) - Journal article,
Background: Income is predictive of many health outcomes and is therefore an important potential confounder to control for in studies. However it is often missing or poorly measured in epidemiological studies because of ...
Detrital zircon geochronology of the Grenville/Llano foreland and basal Sauk Sequence in west Texas, USA
(2014-07-01) - Journal article,
U-Pb detrital zircon ages from Mesoprotero zoic and Cambrian siliciclastic units in west Texas (USA) constrain the depositional setting, provenance, and tectonic history of the region within a late Mesoproterozoic Grenville ...
Modeling the Signature of Sulfur Mass-Independent Fractionation produced in the Archean Atmosphere
(2014-09-15) - Journal article,
Minor sulfur isotope anomalies indicate the absence of O2 from the Archean atmosphere. A rich dataset showing large variations in magnitude and sign of Δ33S and Δ36S, preserved in both sulfates and sulfides, suggests that ...
