  • The 2012 Madeira dengue outbreak: epidemiological determinants and future epidemic potential 

    Lourenço, José; Recker, Mario (Public Library of Science, 2014-08)
    Dengue, a vector-borne viral disease of increasing global importance, is classically associated with tropical and sub-tropical regions around the world. Urbanisation, globalisation and climate trends, however, are facilitating ...

  • The 21st century decline in damaging European windstorms 

    Dawkins, Laura Claire; Stephenson, David B.; Lockwood, Julia F.; Maisey, Paul E. (European Geosciences Union (EGU) / Copernicus Publications, 2016-08-29)
    A decline in damaging European windstorms has led to a reduction in insured losses in the 21st century. This decline is explored by identifying a damaging windstorm characteristic and investigating how and why this ...
  • 2D and 3D polar plume analysis from the three vantage positions of STEREO/EUVI A, B, and SOHO/EIT 

    de Patoul, Judith; Inhester, Bernd; Feng, L; Wiegelmann, T (Springer Verlag, 2011-11-17)
    Polar plumes are seen as elongated objects starting at the solar polar regions. Here, we analyze these objects from a sequence of images taken simultaneously by the three spacecraft telescopes STEREO/EUVI A and B, and ...
  • 2D Material Liquid Crystals for Optoelectronics and Photonics 

    Hogan, BTH; Kovalska, EK; Craciun, MFC; Baldycheva, A (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-07-21)
    The merging of the materials science paradigms of liquid crystals and 2D materials promises superb new opportunities for the advancement of the fields of optoelectronics and photonics. In this review, we summarise the ...
  • 3-D Vector Processing of Magnetometer and Inclinometer Data 

    Gibson, D. (British Cave Research Association (BCRA), 1996-10)
    Cave surveying currently relies on visually reading a compass and clinometer. The price of magnetometers and solid-state inclinometers is falling rapidly; thus an electronic compass/clinometer with automatic data-logging ...
  • 3D electron density distribution in the solar corona during solar minima: assessment for more realistic solar wind modelling 

    de Patoul, Judith; Foullon, Claire; Riley, Pete (American Astronomical Society, 2015-11-17)
    Knowledge of the electron density distribution in the solar corona put constraints on the magnetic field configurations for coronal modeling and on initial conditions for solar wind modeling. We work with polarized ...
  • 40Ar/39Ar phlogopite geochronology of lamprophyre dykes in Cornwall, UK: new age constraints on Early Permian post-collisional magmatism in the Rhenohercynian Zone, SW England 

    Dupuis, Nicolle E.; Braid, James A.; Murphy, J. Brendan; Shail, R.K.; Archibald, Doug A.; Nance, R. Damian (Geological Society, 2015-06-26)
    The spatial and temporal association of post-collisional granites and lamprophyre dykes is a common but enigmatic relationship in many orogenic belts, including the Variscan orogenic belt of SW England. The geology of SW ...
  • Ab initio investigation of BCS-type superconductivity in LuNi2 B2 C -type superconductors 

    Tütüncü, HM; Uzunok, HY; Karaca, E; Srivastava, G.P.; Özer, S; Uur, A (American Physical Society, 2015-08-20)
    Ab initio pseudopotential calculations have been made to calculate the structural, electronic, vibrational, and superconducting properties of the borocarbide superconductors RM2B2C(R=Lu,La,Y;M=Ni,Pd,Pt). Using the electronic ...
  • Ab initio investigation of superconductivity in orthorhombic MgPtSi 

    Tütüncü, HM; Karaca, E; Srivastava, GP (Elseviert, 2016-07-15)
    We have performed an ab initio study of electronic, vibrational and superconducting properties of the orthorhombic MgPtSi by employing the density functional theory, a linear-response formalism, and the plane-wave ...
  • Abrasion process between a fibre mooring line and a corroded steel element during the transit and commissioning of a Marine Renewable Energy device 

    Herduin, Manuel; Banfield, Stephen; Weller, S.D.; Thies, Philipp R.; Johanning, Lars (Elsevier, 2015-11-18)
    The interaction between fibre rope and steel parts on vessels (fairlead and roller) is technically well understood but not commonly published in codes or practised by mariners. What appears to be a smooth steel surface to ...
  • Absence of Anderson localization in certain random lattices 

    Choi, W; Yin, C; Hooper, IR; Barnes, WL; Bertolotti, J (American Physical Society, 2017-08-10)

  • Absorption in dipole-lattice models of dielectrics 

    Philbin, TG; Churchill, RJ (American Physical Society, 2016-05-05)
