  • Heritage pasts and heritage presents: temporality, meaning and the scope of heritage studies 

    Harvey, David (Routledge (Taylor & Francis Group), 2001)
    With the apparent focus of work carried out by the heritage 'community' very much directed towards heritage practices in the present, the potential historical scope for the discipline as a whole, becomes ever-more temporally ...
  • High chance that current atmospheric greenhouse concentrations commit to warmings greater than 1.5 °C over land 

    Huntingford, C; Mercado, LM (Springer Nature, 2016-07-27)
    The recent Paris UNFCCC climate meeting discussed the possibility of limiting global warming to 2 °C since pre-industrial times, or possibly even 1.5 °C, which would require major future emissions reductions. However, even ...
  • High potential for weathering and climate effects of non-vascular vegetation in the Late Ordovician 

    Porada, P; Lenton, TM; Pohl, A; Weber, B; Mander, L; Donnadieu, Y; Beer, C; Pöschl, U; Kleidon, A (Springer Nature, 2016-07-07)
    It has been hypothesized that predecessors of today's bryophytes significantly increased global chemical weathering in the Late Ordovician, thus reducing atmospheric CO2 concentration and contributing to climate cooling ...
