  • Capture-recapture abundance estimation using a semi-complete data likelihood approach 

    King, Ruth; T. McClintock, Brett; Kidney, Darren; Borchers, David (2016-03) - Journal article
    Capture-recapture data are often collected when abundance estimation is of interest. In the presence of unobserved individual heterogeneity, specified on a continuous scale for the capture probabilities, the likelihood is ...
  • Consistency in eyewitness reports of aquatic "monsters" 

    Paxton, Charles George Mackay; Shine, Adrian J. (2016-03-15) - Journal article
    Little work has been undertaken on the consistency/repeatabilityof reports of natural historical anomalies. Such information is usefulin understanding the reporting process associated with such accountsand distinguishing ...
  • Recent advances in coronal heating 

    De Moortel, I.; Browning, P. (2015-05-28) - Journal article
    The solar corona, the tenuous outer atmosphere of the Sun, is orders of magnitude hotter than the solar surface. This 'coronal heating problem' requires the identification of a heat source to balance losses due to thermal ...
  • Is magnetic topology important for heating the solar atmosphere? 

    E. Parnell, C.; E. H. Stevenson, J.; Threlfall, J.; J. Edwards, S. (2015-05-21) - Journal article
    Magnetic fields permeate the entire solar atmosphere weaving an extremely complex pattern on both local and global scales. In order to understand the nature of this tangled web of magnetic fields, its magnetic skeleton, ...
  • Tracking marine mammals in 3D using electronic tag data 

    Laplanche, C.; Marques, T.A.; Thomas, L. (2015-09) - Journal article
    1. Information about at-depth behaviour of marine mammals is fundamental yet very hard to obtain from direct visual observation. Animal-borne multisensor electronic tags provide a unique window of observation into such ...
