  • Delphinid echolocation click detection probability on near-seafloor sensors 

    Frasier, Kaitlin E.; Wiggins, Sean M.; Harris, Danielle; Marques, Tiago A.; Thomas, Len; Hildebrand, John A. (2016-09) - Journal article
    The probability of detecting echolocating delphinids on a near-seafloor sensor was estimated using two Monte Carlo simulation methods. One method estimated the probability of detecting a single click (cue counting); the ...
  • A simulation approach to assessing environmental risk of sound exposure to marine mammals 

    Donovan, Carl Robert; Harris, Catriona M; Milazzo, Lorenzo; Harwood, John; Marshall, Laura Helen; Williams, Robert (2017-02-28) - Journal article
    Intense underwater sounds caused by military sonar, seismic surveys, and pile driving can harm acoustically sensitive marine mammals. Many jurisdictions require such activities to undergo marine mammal impact assessments ...
  • The classification of partition homogeneous groups with applications to semigroup theory 

    André, Jorge; Araúo, Joāo; Cameron, Peter Jephson (2016-04-15) - Journal article
    Let λ=(λ1,λ2,...) be a partition of n, a sequence of positive integers in non-increasing order with sum n. Let Ω:={1,...,n}. An ordered partition P=(A1,A2,...) of Ω has type λ if |Ai|=λi.Following Martin and Sagan, we say ...
  • An assessment of the population of cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus) and their habitat in Colombia 

    Savage, Anne; Thomas, Len; Feilen, Katie L.; Kidney, Darren; Soto, Luis H.; Pearson, Mackenzie; Medina, Felix S.; Emeris, German; Guillen, Rosamira R. (2016-12-28) - Journal article
    Numerous animals have declining populations due to habitat loss, illegal wildlife trade, and climate change. The cotton-top tamarin (Saguinus oedipus) is a Critically Endangered primate species, endemic to northwest Colombia, ...
  • On optimality and construction of circular repeated-measurements designs 

    Bailey, Rosemary Anne; Cameron, Peter Jephson; Filipiak, Katarzyna; Kunert, Joachim; Markiewicz, Augustyn (2017-01) - Journal article
    The aim of this paper is to characterize and construct universally optimal designs among the class of circular repeated-measurements designs when the parameters do not permit balance for carry-over effects. It is shown ...
