Assessing the effects of weather conditions on physical activity participation using objective measuresDownload
Habitual physical activity is an important determinant of health, yet many people are considered to be inactive. Identification of the obstacles to greater participation is necessary for the development of strategies to overcome those obstacles. The weather has been identified as a perceived...
Lighting, fire is the dominant natural disturbance of the western mixedwood boreal forest of North America. We quantified the independent effects of weather and forest composition oil lightning fire initiation (a detected and recorded fire start) patterns in Alberta, Canada, to demonstrate how...
Background: Physical activity in children is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and contributes to the prevention of childhood overweight and obesity. However, Canadian children are not physically active enough. Weather conditions may limit physical activity levels, but little is known...
This dissertation develops a “Northern Textual Ecology,” a methodological approach that posits a correlation between the geo/meteorological forces of the north and the literary texts, Indigenous and other, of the north. I suggest that both the actual land and literary texts are environments: both...
Background The weather may be a barrier to physical activity but objective assessment of this hypothesis is lacking. Therefore we evaluated the effect of temperature, rain or snow, and wind speed on the daily physical activity of adults. Methods This report contains data from 25 males (BMI (mean...
The Development of Random Generators of Weather and Industrial Pipelines Data using Parametric and Non-Parametric ApproachesDownload
Construction projects are unique and complex in nature. They are associated with many challenges regarding the randomness, complexity, and interdependency related to the operation/process, the environment hosting the operation, and the product being constructed. These challenges are also common...
As climates warm and extreme climatic events occur with more frequency and severity, maintaining forest health and productivity may involve planting seed sources from warmer, drier areas. To guide such reforestation strategies, this work analyzes the risks of both climate change and assisted...
