Intra-urban analysis of commercial locations: A GIS-based approach
The urban landscape is an interspersed mixing of residences, shops, theatres, parks, natural areas, and a multitude of other uses. From the early days of the central markets, to the planned downtown, to the heavily planned ...
Visible/near-infrared spectral diversity from in situ observations of the Bagnold Dune Field sands in Gale Crater, Mars
(Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, 2017-12-13)
As part of the Bagnold Dune campaign conducted by Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity, visible/near-infrared reflectance spectra of dune sands were acquired using Mast Camera (Mastcam) multispectral imaging (445–1013 ...
Snow covered soils produce N₂O that is lost from forested catchments prior to snowmelt
(American Geophysical Union, 2016-08-25)
The magnitude of net soil nitrous oxide (N₂O) production from a snow‐covered catchment in a northern temperate forest was investigated. There was considerable net soil N₂O‐N production and consumption through the snowpack, ...
Spectroscopic approaches for studying faint text on a wooden tally from Invincible (1758)
(International Journal of Conservation Science, 2013-01-01)
In this study we describe the application of X-ray fluorescence, variable pressure scanning electron microscopy and visible (420-720 nm) hyperspectral imaging to assess the surface properties of a wood tally stick that was ...
The ecology of methane in streams and rivers: patterns, controls, and global significance
(Ecological Society of America, 2015-12-07)
Streams and rivers can substantially modify organic carbon (OC) inputs from terrestrial landscapes, and much of this processing is the result of microbial respiration. While carbon dioxide (CO₂) is the major end‐product ...
Composition of Jupiter irregular satellites sheds light on their origin
(EDP Sciences, 2017)
Context. Irregular satellites of Jupiter with their highly eccentric, inclined and distant orbits suggest that their capture took place after the giant planet migration. Aims. We aim to improve our understanding of the ...
Aboriginal Capacity Building Achievements for Sustainable Natural Resource Development
(Centre for Forest Interdisciplinary Research, University of Winnipeg, 2016)
This knowledge synthesis report provides the first bibliometric profile and systemic review of research on Aboriginal capacity building for natural resource development in Canada.
Reenvisioning an Energy Strategy for Manitoba: Planning for 2030 and Beyond
(University of Winnipeg, 2020)
On March 10, 2020 the Re-envisioning an Energy Strategy for Manitoba: Planning for 2030 and Beyond workshop was held at The University of Winnipeg. The purpose of the event was to initiate a discussion amongst Manitobans ...
Surface albedo and spectral variability of Ceres
(The Astrophysical Journal Letters, 2016-01-29)
Previous observations suggested that Ceres has active, but possibly sporadic, water outgassing as well as possibly varying spectral characteristics over a timescale of months. We used all available data of Ceres collected ...
Small-scale methane dispersion modelling for possible plume sources on the surface of Mars
(Geophysical Research Letters, 2012-10-11)
Intense interest in the characteristics of a methane source on Mars has been spurred by recent observations of a plume structure. The current NASA Mars Science Laboratory and future landers and orbiters will be tasked with ...
