  • A path reconstruction method integrating dead-reckoning and position fixes applied to humpback whales 

    Wensveen, Paul J.; Thomas, Len; Miller, Patrick J O (2015-09-21) - Journal article
    BACKGROUND: Detailed information about animal location and movement is often crucial in studies of natural behaviour and how animals respond to anthropogenic activities. Dead-reckoning can be used to infer such detailed ...
  • Spatial distribution of citizen science casuistic observations for different taxonomic groups 

    Tiago, Patrícia; Ceia-Hasse, Ana; Marques, Tiago A.; Capinha, César; Pereira, Henrique M. (2017-10-16) - Journal article
    Opportunistic citizen science databases are becoming an important way of gathering information on species distributions. These data are temporally and spatially dispersed and could have limitations regarding biases in the ...
  • Global warming and ocean stratification : a potential result of large extraterrestrial impacts 

    Joshi, Manoj; von Glasow, Roland; Smith, Robin S.; Paxton, Charles G. M.; Maycock, Amanda C.; Lunt, Daniel J.; Loptson, Claire; Markwick, Paul (2017-04-24) - Journal article
    The prevailing paradigm for the climatic effects of large asteroid or comet impacts is a reduction in sunlight and significant short-term cooling caused by atmospheric aerosol loading. Here we show, using global climate ...
  • Can substorm particle acceleration be applied to solar flares? 

    Birn, Joachim; Battaglia, Marina; Fletcher, Lyndsay; Hesse, Michael; Neukirch, Thomas (2017-10-20) - Journal article
    Using test particle studies in the electromagnetic fields of three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of magnetic reconnection, we study the energization of charged particles in the context of the standard ...
  • Collisionless current sheet equilibria 

    Neukirch, Thomas; Wilson, Fiona; Allanson, Oliver Douglas (2018-01) - Journal article
    Current sheets are important for the structure and dynamics of many plasma systems. In space and astrophysical plasmas they play a crucial role in activity processes, for example by facilitating the release of magnetic ...
