    DeBell, L; Anderson, K; Brazier, Richard E.; Jones, L; King, N (NRC Research Press, 2015)
    Lightweight, portable unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or ‘drones’ are set to become a key component of a water resource management (WRM) toolkit, but are currently not widely used in this context. In practical WRM there ...
  • Waveform lidar over vegetation: An evaluation of inversion methods for estimating return energy

  • Weathering pathways and limitations in biogeochemical models: Application to Earth system evolution 

    Mills, BJW (University of East Anglia, 2012)
    Current biogeochemical box models for Phanerozoic climate are reviewed and reduced to a robust, modular system, allowing application to the Precambrian. It is shown that stabilisation of climate following a Neoproterozoic ...

    Mitchell, Catherine (2014)
  • What Do Cities Have to Do with Democracy? 

    Barnett, Clive (Wiley, 2014)
    The relationship between urbanization and democratization remains under-theorized and under-researched. Radical urban theory has undergone a veritable normative turn, registered in debates about the right to the city, ...
  • What does airborne LiDAR really measure in upland ecosystems? 

    Luscombe, David J.; Anderson, K; Gatis, Naomi; Wetherelt, A; Grand-Clement, Emilie; Brazier, Richard E. (Wiley, 2014-08-01)
    Airborne laser scanning systems (Light Detection And Ranging, LiDAR) are very well suited to the study of landscape and vegetation structure over large extents. Spatially distributed measurements describing the three-dimensional ...
