  • Decision-Making under Uncertainty: Optimal Storm Sewer Network Design Considering Flood Risk 

    Sun, Si'ao (University of ExeterEngineering, 2010-07-20)
    Storm sewer systems play a very important role in urban areas. The design of a storm sewer system should be based on an appropriate level of preventing flooding. This thesis focuses on issues relevant to decision-making ...
  • Declining summer snowfall in the Arctic: Causes, impacts and feedbacks 

    Screen, James A.; Simmonds, Ian (Springer Verlag, 2012)
    Recent changes in the Arctic hydrological cycle are explored using in situ observations and an improved atmospheric reanalysis data set, ERA-Interim. We document a pronounced decline in summer snowfall over the Arctic Ocean ...

    Hilal, Sandi; Petti, Alessandro (2010-11-08)
    Alessandro Petti, Sandi Hilal and Eyal Weizman founded an architectural collective in Bethlehem. Decolonizing Architecture is a master plan that explores the problems and potentiality associated with the reuse of Israeli ...
  • Decolonizing Architecture PowerPoint Presentation 

    Petti, Alessandro; Hilal, Sandi (2010-11-10)
    Decolonizing Architecture deals with a fundamental question: how Israeli colonies and military bases – the architecture of Israel’s colonization – could be reused, recycled or re-inhabited by Palestinians, at the moment ...
  • Deconstructing Ethnic Conflict and Sovereignty in Explanatory International Relations: The Case of Iraqi Kurdistan and the PKK 

    Cerny, Johannes (University of ExeterInstitute for Arab and Islamic Studies, 2014-09-18)
    This study is essentially a critique of how the three dominant paradigms of explanatory international relations theory – (neo-)realism, liberalism, and systemic constructivism – conceive of, analytically deal with, and ...
  • Deconstructing the binaries of spatial data production: Towards hybridity 

    Cinnamon, J (Wiley / Canadian Association of Geographers, 2014-08-26)
    Binaries, the most reductive form of categorization, can be usefully invoked to characterize emerging phenomena; yet, they are widely critiqued for oversimplifying a complex world and for their use as tools of social and ...

    Capital punishment - specifically public execution - is here investigated not simply as a judicial punishment, but as a lens through which to view the civil and socio-political development of Malawi from the colonial to ...
  • The Deep Blue Color of HD 189733b: Albedo Measurements with Hubble Space Telescope/Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph at Visible Wavelengths 

    Evans, T.M.; Pont, F.; Sing, David K.; Aigrain, Suzanne; Barstow, Joanna K.; Desert, J.-M.; Gibson, N.; Heng, Kevin; Knutson, H.; Lecavelier des Etangs, A. (IOP Publishing, 2013)
    We present a secondary eclipse observation for the hot Jupiter HD 189733b across the wavelength range 290-570 nm made using the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope. We measure geometric albedos ...
  • Deep in discussion 

    University of Exeter (2010-11-12)
  • Defects and dopants in carbon related materials 

    Pinto, Hugo Manuel (University of ExeterCollege of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, 2012-01-03)
    This thesis presents theoretical studies of the optical and electronic properties of defects in diamond and of the mechanisms of doping graphene. The birefringence of the four petalled defect commonly observed in CVD diamond ...
  • Defects of consent in English law: protecting the bargain? 

    Saintier, Severine (OUP, 2015-03-01)
    In English law, a voluntary and free consent is clearly regarded as essential for a valid contract to be formed. In consequence, mechanisms have therefore developed to protect against a defective consent, but they have ...

  • The definition, measurement, and evaluation of tax expenditures and tax reliefs 

    Myles, Gareth D.; Hashimzade, Nigar; Heady, Chris; Oats, Lynne; Scharf, Kimberley; Yousefi, Hana (National Audit Office, 2014-06)
    Tax reliefs and tax expenditures are two closely related and overlapping concepts. The distinction between tax reliefs and tax expenditures is a subtle one and can only be clear after careful description of the two concepts. ...
  • Delay Aversion in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: an empirical investigation of the broader phenotype. 

    Bitsakou, P; Psychogiou, L; Thompson, M; Sonuga-Barke, EJ (Elsevier, 2009-01)
    Delay-related motivational processes are impaired in children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Here we explore the impact of ADHD on the performance of three putative indices of Delay Aversion (DAv): ...
  • Delay effect of switch-on in a supertwisted nematic cell 

    Yang, Fuzi; Dong, Youmei; Ruan, Lizhen; Sambles, J. Roy (American Institute of Physics, 2004)
    By using a convergent beam system and the fully leaky guided mode technique the switch-on dynamics of an 180° supertwisted nematic have been studied. Using the Ericksen–Leslie theory and analyzing the guided mode data taken ...
