  • Qualitative methods II: minding the gap 

    Davies, Gail; Dwyer, C (SAGE Publications, 2008-05)
    In our last review we drew together work exploring interactions between the performativity of research practices and the spaces of qualitative research (Davies and Dwyer, 2007). In this, we focus on the oscillating ...
  • Qualitative methods III: animating archives, artful interventions and online environments 

    Dwyer, C; Davies, Gail (SAGE Publications, 2010)
    In this report we review recent work in geography which engages with innovative qualitative methods, focusing on three selected arenas: the archive, artistic collaborations and online engagements. Qualitative archival ...
  • Qualitative methods: are you enchanted or are you alienated? 

    Davies, Gail; Dwyer, C (Sage Publications, 2007)
    Since the last report on qualitative methods (Crang, 2005), many of the practical procedures of doing qualitative research remain the same. Human geographers continue to study texts, to conduct interviews, to convene ...

    Contrasting Greenland and Antarctic temperatures during the last glacial period (115,000 to 11,650 years ago) are thought to have been driven by imbalances in the rates of formation of North Atlantic and Antarctic Deep ...

    Recent analyses of Amazon runoff and gridded precipitation data suggest an intensification of the hydrological cycle over the past few decades in the following sense: wet season precipitation and peak river runoff (since ...
  • Recent trends and drivers of regional sources and sinks of carbon dioxide 

    Sitch, S; Friedlingstein, P; Gruber, N; Jones, SD; Murray-Tortarolo, G; Ahlström, A; Doney, SC; Graven, H; Heinze, C; Heinze, C; Heinze, C; Huntingford, C; Levis, S; Levy, PE; Lomas, M; Poulter, B; Viovy, N; Zaehle, S; Zeng, N; Arneth, A; Bonan, G; Bopp, L; Canadell, JG; Chevallier, F; Ciais, P; Ellis, R; Gloor, M; Peylin, P; Piao, SL; Le Quéré, C; Smith, B; Zhu, Z; Zhu, Z; Myneni, R (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2015-02-02)
    © 2015 Author(s). The land and ocean absorb on average just over half of the anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year. These CO2 "sinks" are modulated by climate change and variability. Here we use a suite ...
  • Reconciling precipitation with runoff: observed hydrological change in the midlatitudes 

    Osborne, Joe M.; Lambert, F. Hugo; Groenendijk, Margriet; Harper, Anna B.; Koven, Charles D.; Poulter, B; Pugh, Thomas A.M.; Sitch, S; Stocker, Benjamin D.; Wiltshire, Andy; Zaehle, Sönke (American Meteorological Society, 2015-12)
    Century-long observed gridded land precipitation datasets are a cornerstone of hydrometeorological research. But recent work has suggested that observed Northern Hemisphere midlatitude (NHML) land mean precipitation does ...
  • Reconfiguring Ruins: Beyond Ruinenlust 

    López Galviz, C; Bartolini, N; Pendleton, M; Stock, A (Taylor & Francis, 2017-10-25)
    What explains the global proliferation of interest in ruins? Can ruins be understood beyond their common framing as products of European Romanticism? Might a transdisciplinary approach allow us to see ruins differently? ...
  • Reconstructing North Atlantic marine climate variability using an absolutely-dated sclerochronological network 

    Reynolds, DJ; Richardson, CA; Scourse, JD; Butler, PG; Hollyman, P; Román-González, A; Hall, IR (Elsevier, 2016-08-04)
    Reconstructing regional to hemispheric-scale climate variability requires the application of spatially representative and climatically sensitive proxy archives. Large spatial networks of dendrochronologies have facilitated ...
  • Reconstructing past seasonal to multi-centennial scale variability in the NE Atlantic Ocean using the long-lived marine bivalve mollusc Glycymeris glycymeris 

    Reynolds, DJ; Hall, IR; Slater, S; Scourse, JD; Halloran, PR; Sayer, MDJ (American Geophysical Union (AGU) / Wiley, 2017-10-05)
    The lack of long-term, highly resolved (annual to sub-annual) and absolutely dated baseline records of marine variability extending beyond the instrumental period (last ~50-100 years) hinders our ability to develop a ...

    Perry, C; Morgan, K; Yarlett, R (Frontiers Media, 2017-06-13)
    A coral reefs carbonate budget strongly influences reef structural complexity and net reef growth potential, and thus is increasingly recognised as a key “health” metric. Despite this, understanding of habitat specific ...

  • Regional imaginaries of governance agencies: practising the region of South West Britain 

    Harvey, David; Thomas, Nicola J; Hawkins, Harriet (Pion, 2011)
    Changes in government and governmentality in the UK have witnessed what has been termed a ‘regional renaissance’ over the last decade. This has led to an increase in the number of offices, institutions and agencies operating ...
