This article investigates how Housing First (HF) is practiced in Alberta, Canada, with a focus on the concept of graduation. The dominant HF model, Pathways, holds that client support should be time-unlimited. However, HF is highly mobile and increasingly characterized by ambiguity and drift away...
This chapter focuses on wellbeing research in health geography and the ways in which health geographers have made important contributions to understanding the socio-spatial and place-based dimensions of wellbeing. We seek to answer two key questions: What is wellbeing? And why is it important? To...
Objectively analyzed surface hydrographic fields and NCEP–NCAR reanalysis fluxes are used to estimate water mass transformation and formation rates in the Labrador Sea, focusing on Labrador Sea Water (LSW). The authors estimate a mean long-term transformation of between 2.1 ± 0.2 and 3.9 ± 0.3 Sv...
A number of recent studies have shown enhanced retreat of tidewater glaciers over much of southern and western Greenland. One of the fastest retreats has occurred at Jakobshavn Isbrae, with the rapid retreat linked to the arrival of relatively warm and saline Irminger water along the west coast...
Two stretches of rocky coastline on Grand Cayman are characterized by boulders that are up to 5.5 m long, 3.4 m wide, and 2.3 m high (estimated to weigh as much as 40 tonnes). Clusters of boulders, which are irregularly distributed through the area, occur up to 100 m inland from the present-day...
We experimentally investigate the behaviour of a line-source plume falling through a finite two-layer stratified ambient where the depth of the upper ambient layer increases in time. Laboratory observations suggest one of two possible flow regimes depending on the value of 𝜆 , which represents...
Vermetid buildups, formed primarily of Dendropoma, are found in the coastal areas near Bodden Town and Great Bluff Estates on Grand Cayman. These gastropods are commonly encrusted by foraminifera (Homotrema rubum, Acervulina? sp.), coralline algae, and cyanobacteria. Spaces between the gastropods...
The reflectance spectra of opal-A (05-22 µm) from the Taupo Volcanic Zone: spectra that may identify hydrothermal systems on planetary systemsDownload
Opal‐A, the main component of siliceous sinters in many terrestrial hydrothermal systems, is a hydrated silicate that commonly incorporates silicified microorganisms. The detection of opal‐A on the surface of Mars, therefore, may carry important implications in the search for extraterrestrial...
The influence of high-frequency atmospheric forcing on the circulation and deep convection of the Labrador SeaDownload
The influence of high-frequency atmospheric forcing on the circulation of the North Atlantic Ocean with emphasis on the deep convection of the Labrador Sea was investigated by comparing simulations of a coupled ocean–ice model with hourly atmospheric data to simulations in which the...
The evolution of calcite-bearing kimberlites by melt-rock reaction: evidence from polymineralic inclusions within clinopyroxene and garnet megacrysts from Lac de Gras kimberlites, CanadaDownload
Megacrystic (>1 cm) clinopyroxene (Cr-diopside) and garnet (Cr-pyrope) xenocrysts within kimberlites from Lac de Gras (Northwest Territories, Canada) contain fully crystallized melt inclusions. These ‘polymineralic inclusions’ have previously been interpreted to form by necking down of melts at...
