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 ...
A model for training undergraduate students in collaborative science
(American Geophysical Union, 2018-08-16)
Engagement of undergraduate students in research has been demonstrated to correlate with improved academic performance and retention. Research experience confers many benefits on participants, particularly foundational ...
Lake Manitoba and its Watershed: Knowledge Gaps & Next Steps
Lake Manitoba is a large, shallow prairie lake located in central Manitoba. The lake and watershed are subject to numerous environmental pressures including climate change, land use change, and regulation of water levels, ...
Acidic weathering of basalt and basaltic glass: 1. Near-infrared spectra, thermal infrared spectra, and implications for Mars
(Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, 2017-01-24)
Acid-leached rinds and coatings occur in volcanic environments on Earth and have been identified using orbital spectroscopy on Mars, but their development is poorly understood. We simulated long-term open-system acidic ...
Evolution of Occator Crater on (1) Ceres
(The Astronomical Journal, 2017-02-17)
The dwarf planet Ceres (diameter 939 km) is the largest object in the main asteroid belt. Recent investigations suggest that Ceres is a thermally evolved, volatile-rich body with potential geological activity, a body which ...
Compositional homogeneity of CM parent bodies.
(The Astronomical Journal, 2016-08-10)
CM chondrites are the most common type of hydrated meteorites, making up ∼1.5% of all falls. Whereas most CM chondrites experienced only low-temperature (∼0°C–120°C) aqueous alteration, the existence of a small fraction ...
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 ...
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.
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, ...
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 ...
