Construction companies constantly seek to improve risk analysis techniques to determine projects' risk contingency. The construction risk assessment practice relies on heterogeneous experts' opinions in a group decision making (GDM) process to determine the risk probabilities and impacts on a...
Although it is widely agreed that data from multiple sources are necessary to confidently resolve phylogenetic relationships, procedures for accommodating and incorporating heterogeneity in such data remain underdeveloped.We explored the use of partitioned, model-based analyses of heterogeneous...
Abstract: Engineering judgment and reliance on factors of safety have been the conventional tools for dealing with soil heterogeneity in geotechnical practice. This paper presents a review of recent advances in treating soil variability. It presents the implications of geostatistical techniques...
Heterogeneity in Attitudes Underlying Preferences for Genomic Technology Producing Hybrid Poplars on Public LandDownload
This study investigates the public preference heterogeneity of planting genetically improved poplar tree on public land for biofuel production in Western Canada. Using a sample of the public from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, respondents were asked to vote in a series of...
Identifying seasonal Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) movement patterns and habitat selection in the South Saskatchewan River BasinDownload
Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens Rafinesque 1817) have experienced population declines throughout their range. In Alberta, low density age-class distributions, irregular recruitment, critically low spawning potential ratios and other factors led to a 2007 designation of “Threatened” for this...
The impact of geomechanical behavior in the SAGD process has received increased attention over the last decade because of its importance in assessing caprock integrity and potential influence on production performance. The deformations and potential shear failures in the reservoir lead to...
The recent open pit mining for oil sands in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region (AOSR), northern Alberta has created an unprecedented industrial scale disturbance whose ecological consequences is not well understood, and requires intensive investigation. This study focused on the temporal dynamics of...
Spatial heterogeneity of buffaloberry (Shepherdia canadensis) in relation to forest canopy patterns and its importance for grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) resource selectionDownload
Spatial heterogeneity inherent in the environment influences how animals respond to their surroundings, especially as it relates to the variability of their food resources. Heterogeneity in specific elements of vegetation, such as the spatial pattern of a single plant species, can be defined...
Abstract: Riparian ecotones at lakeshore edges are prominent features on the heterogeneous boreal forest landscape. We introduce a new method (the critical values approach): which incorporates inherent variability in interior forest, to quantify distance of edge influence at lakeshore forest...
Heterogeneity of surfaces is often included in mathematical treatments of colloid transport and deposition as an afterthought, if at all. Most previous models of colloid transport and deposition have employed idealizations and simplifications such as assuming smooth collector surfaces with...
