    The accurate mapping of forest carbon stocks is essential for understanding the global carbon cycle, for assessing emissions from deforestation, and for rational land-use planning. Remote sensing (RS) is currently the key ...
  • Marketing practices and the reconfiguration of public action 

    Barnett, Clive (Policy Press, 2015-07-07)
    Market segmentation methodologies are increasingly used in public policy, arts and culture management, and third sector campaigning. Rather than presume that this is an index of creeping neoliberalization, we track the ...
  • Material Geographies

  • Matworld - the biogeochemical effects of early life on land. 

    Lenton, TM; Daines, SJ (Wiley, 2016-11-24)
    There is growing evidence that life has been on land for billions of years. Microbial mats fuelled by oxygenic photosynthesis were probably present in terrestrial habitats from c. 3.0 billion yr ago (Ga) onwards, creating ...
