    Bowman, Clark; Chaplain, Mark; Matzavinos, Anastasios (2019-03-06) - Journal article
    We investigate with computer simulations the critical radius of pores in a lipid bilayer membrane. Ilton et al. (Ilton et al. 2016 Phys. Rev. Lett.117, 257801 (doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.117.257801)) recently showed that ...
  • Statistical analysis of SAMBAH survey and associated data 

    Thomas, Len; Burt, M Louise (University of St Andrews, 2016-03-01) - Report
    SAMBAH (Static Acoustic Monitoring of the Baltic Sea Harbour Porpoise) was an international project involving all EU countries around the Baltic Sea, funded by those countries and by the EU Life program (Project Number ...
  • Fin whale density and distribution estimation using acoustic bearings derived from sparse arrays 

    Harris, Danielle V.; Miksis-Olds, Jennifer L.; Vernon, Julia A.; Thomas, Len (2018-05) - Journal article
    Passive acoustic monitoring of marine mammals is common, and it is now possible to estimate absolute animal density from acoustic recordings. The most appropriate density estimation method depends on how much detail about ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
