  • A review of unmanned vehicles for the detection and monitoring of marine fauna 

    Verfuss, Ursula K.; Aniceto, Ana Sofia; Harris, Danielle V.; Gillespie, Douglas; Fielding, Sophie; Jiménez, Guillermo; Johnston, Phil; Sinclair, Rachael R.; Sivertsen, Agnar; Solbø, Stian A.; Storvold, Rune; Biuw, Martin; Wyatt, Roy (2019-03) - Journal item
    Recent technology developments have turned present-day unmanned systems into realistic alternatives to traditional marine animal survey methods. Benefits include longer survey durations, improved mission safety, mission ...
  • Rigidity for sticky disks 

    Connelly, Robert; Gortler, Steven J.; Theran, Louis Simon (2019-01-14) - Journal article
    We study the combinatorial and rigidity properties of disk packings with generic radii. We show that a packing of n disks in the plane with generic radii cannot have more than 2n − 3 pairs of disks in contact. The allowed ...
  • Density estimation of sound-producing terrestrial animals using single automatic acoustic recorders and distance sampling 

    Sebastián-González, Esther; Camp, Richard J.; Tanimoto, Ann M.; de Oliveira, Priscilla M.; Lima, Bruna B.; Marques, Tiago A.; Hart, Patrick J. (2018-12-01) - Journal article
    Obtaining accurate information on the distribution, density, and abundance of animals is an important first step toward their conservation. Methodological approaches using automatic acoustic recorders for species that ...
  • Classification of animal dive tracks via automatic landmarking, principal components analysis and clustering 

    Walker, Cameron; MacKenzie, Monique Lea; Donovan, Carl Robert; Hastie, Gordon Drummond; Quick, Nicola Jane; Kidney, Darren (2011-08-19) - Journal article
    The behaviour of animals and their interactions with the environment can be inferred by tracking their movement. For this reason, biologgers are an important source of ecological data, but analysing the shape of the tracks ...
  • Observing the simulations : applying ZDI to 3D non-potential magnetic field simulations 

    Lehmann, L. T.; Hussain, G. A. J.; Jardine, M. M.; Mackay, D. H.; Vidotto, A. A. (2019-03-11) - Journal article
    The large-scale magnetic fields of stars can be obtained with the Zeeman-Doppler-Imaging (ZDI) technique, but their interpretation is still challenging as the contribution of the small-scale field or the reliability of the ...
