  • Particle acceleration in collapsing magnetic traps with a braking plasma jet 

    Borissov, Alexei; Neukirch, Thomas; Threlfall, James William (2016) - Journal article
    Collapsing magnetic traps (CMTs) are one proposed mechanism for generating non-thermal particle populations in solar flares. CMTs occur if an initially stretched magnetic field structure relaxes rapidly into a lower-energy ...
  • Estimation bias under model selection for distance sampling detection functions 

    Prieto Gonzalez, Rocio; Thomas, Leonard Joseph; Marques, Tiago Andre Lamas Oliveira (2017-05-26) - Journal article
    Many simulation studies have examined the properties of distance sampling estimators of wildlife population size. When assumptions hold, if distances are generated from a detection model and fitted using the same model, ...
  • Rebuilding beluga stocks in West Greenland 

    Heide-Jørgensen, M. P.; Hansen, R. G.; Fossette, S.; Nielsen, N. H.; Borchers, D. L.; Stern, H.; Witting, L. (2016-11-11) - Journal article
    Decisions about sustainable exploitation levels of marine resources are often based on inadequate data, but are nevertheless required for practical purposes. We describe one exception where abundance estimates spanning ...
  • Bombs and flares at the surface and lower atmosphere of the Sun 

    Hansteen, V. H.; Archontis, V.; Pereira, T. M. D.; Carlsson, M.; Rouppe van der Voort, L.; Leenaarts, J. (2017-04-10) - Journal article
    A spectacular manifestation of solar activity is the appearance of transient brightenings in the far wings of the Hα line, known as Ellerman bombs (EBs). Recent observations obtained by the Interface Region Imaging ...
  • Foraging behaviour, swimming performance and malformations of early stages of commercially important fishes under ocean acidification and warming 

    Pimentel, Marta S.; Faleiro, Filipa; Marques, Tiago; Bispo, Regina; Dionísio, Gisela; Faria, Ana M.; Machado, Jorge; Peck, Myron A.; Pörtner, Hans; Pousão-Ferreira, Pedro; Gonçalves, Emanuel J.; Rosa, Rui (2016-08) - Journal article
    Early life stages of many marine organisms are being challenged by climate change, but little is known about their capacity to tolerate future ocean conditions. Here we investigated a comprehensive set of biological responses ...
