disPOSSESSION is a body of work that explores the accumulation of wealth of few and the displacement of many with a focus on the expansion of soy and beef production, ensuing environmental, social, and economic consequences, as well as connected indigenous land rights and peasant food sovereignty...
Vector interpolation and regularized elastic imaging of multicomponent seismic data
Historically seismic data processing has relied on the acoustic approximation to process single component data under the simplifying assumption that the recorded wavefield consists mainly of compressional wave modes. With the advancement of multicomponent seismic technology there is an increased...
Estimating accurate images of the subsurface is one of the end products of seismic data processing. Numerical solutions to the wave equation allow designing linearized forward operators. The adjoint of the linearized forward operator is used to image the interior of the earth. The adjoint...

Human migration is a global phenomenon driven by two factors: individual needs or desires, and changes in the economics and politics in the society from which the migration stems. Human migration usually involves people crossing international borders, but the impact is often felt locally, in the...
Interrogating the Impact of Recent Changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program on Temporary Foreign Workers in AlbertaDownload
Following a peak in the number of migrants admitted to Canada via its Temporary Foreign Worker Program, the program underwent significant changes in 2014 and 2015 that will undoubtedly affect the lives of temporary foreign workers in Canada. These changes include a limitation on the length of...
The challenges encountered by immigrant-serving agencies in addressing the health of temporary foreign workers
The challenges encountered by immigrant-serving agencies in addressing the health of temporary foreign workersDownload
This study sought to examine the challenges encountered by immigrant-serving agencies in meeting the health needs of temporary foreign workers and their families in one Canadian province. We interviewed eleven representatives of immigrant serving agencies and two policy makers. Some of the...
Human resources for health challenges in Nigeria and nurse migration
The emigration of sub-Saharan African health professionals to developed Western nations is an aspect of increasing global mobility. This paper focuses on the human resources for health challenges in Nigeria and the emigration of nurses from Nigeria as the country faces mounting human resources...
Roads are a prevalent, ever-increasing form of human disturbance on the landscape. In many places in western North America, energy development has brought human and road disturbance into seasonal winter range areas for migratory elk. In this population, I studied individual habitat selection...
