  • Anticipating ubiquitous computing: Logics to forecast technological futures 

    Kinsley, Samuel (Elsevier, 2011-03)
    Visions of the future predict spaces apparently teaming with ever more novel and pervasive technologies. Significant amongst such forecasts is the notion of ‘ubiquitous computing’ (ubicomp), understood as an affordance or ...

  • Are Inventory Based and Remotely Sensed Above-Ground Biomass Estimates Consistent? 

    Hill, TC; Williams, M; Bloom, AA; Mitchard, ETA; Ryan, CM (Public Library of Science, 2013-09-19)
    Carbon emissions resulting from deforestation and forest degradation are poorly known at local, national and global scales. In part, this lack of knowledge results from uncertain above-ground biomass estimates. It is ...
  • Arguably big biology: Sociology, spatiality and the knockout mouse project 

    Davies, Gail (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013-12)
    Following the completion of the Human Genome Project (HGP), a critical challenge has been how to make biological sense of the amassed sequence data and translate this into clinical applications. A range of large biological ...

    Human settlements and transport networks are growing rapidly worldwide. Since the early 20th century their expansion has been accompanied by increasing illumination of the environment at night, a trend that is likely to ...
  • Asking about the future: methodological insights from energy biographies 

    Shirani, Fiona; Parkhill, Karen; Butler, Catherine; Groves, Chris; Pidgeon, Nick; Henwood, Karen (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2015-04-23)
    Temporality is fundamental to qualitative longitudinal (QLL) research, inherent in the design of returning to participants over time, often to explore moments of change. Previous research has indicated that talking about ...

    Assessments of ecosystem services (ES) and biodiversity (hereafter ecological parameters) provide a comprehensive view of the links between landscapes, ecosystem functioning and human well-being. The investigation of ...
  • Assessing recent trends in high-latitude Southern Hemisphere surface climate 

    Jones, JM; Gille, ST; Goosse, H; Abram, NJ; Canziani, PO; Charman, DJ; Clem, KR; Crosta, X; De Lavergne, C; Eisenman, I; England, MH; Fogt, RL; Frankcombe, LM; Marshall, GJ; Masson-Delmotte, V; Morrison, AK; Orsi, AJ; Raphael, MN; Renwick, JA; Schneider, DP; Simpkins, GR; Steig, EJ; Stenni, B; Swingedouw, D; Vance, TR (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09-28)
    Understanding the causes of recent climatic trends and variability in the high-latitude Southern Hemisphere is hampered by a short instrumental record. Here, we analyse recent atmosphere, surface ocean and sea-ice observations ...
