Dense water formation on the Icelandic shelf and its contribution to the North Icelandic JetDownload
Garcia-Quintana, Yarisbel, Grivault, Nathan, Hu, Xianmin, Myers, Paul G.
The North Icelandic Jet (NIJ) is the densest component of the Denmark Strait Overflow Water, feeding the abyssal limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. Here, by using observational and numerical model data, we explore the formation of overflow water on the Icelandic shelf, the...

This paper presents a numerical scheme for a solid–fluid coupled discrete-element method (DEM) that takes into consideration solid deformation and pore pressure generation and dissipation. Analytical solutions of conventional soil mechanics examples obtained by oedometer testing are used to...

DrugBank is a unique bioinformatics/cheminformatics resource that combines detailed drug (i.e. chemical) data with comprehensive drug target (i.e. protein) information. The database contains >4100 drug entries including >800 FDA approved small molecule and biotech drugs as well as >3200...
Enhancing our understanding of teachers' personal responsibility for student motivation: A mixed methods studyDownload
Lia M. Daniels, Cheryl Poth, Lauren D. Goegan
As measured by the Teachers Responsibility Scale, teachers appear to have surprisingly low levels of personal responsibility for student motivation even though they qualitatively identify low student motivation as a major teaching concern. Thus, the purpose of the current mixed methods research...
Factors influencing dispersal by flight in bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae Scolytinae): from genes to landscapes.Download
Jones, Kelsey L., Shegelski, Victor A., Marcelis, Nathan G., Wijerathna, Asha N., Evenden, Maya L.
Dispersal by flight is obligatory for bark beetles in the subfamily Scolytinae. Adult bark beetles must leave the natal host and fly to seek new hosts for brood production. Because of the eruptive nature of some bark beetle populations, dispersal capacity has implications for beetle spread and...
Habitat use and behaviour of Irrawaddy dolphins (Orcaella brevirostris) in the Mekong River of LaosDownload
Stacey, Pam J., Hvenegaard, Glen T.
This field study addressed a number of natural history parameters of Irrawaddy dolphins (Orcaella brevirostris) in the Mekong River of Laos that were not well-documented, including diving behaviour, foraging ecology, habitat use, social behaviour, group size, and diurnal movements. Irrawaddy...

Mechanistic home range analysis (MHRA) is a highly effective tool for understanding spacing patterns of animal populations. It has hitherto focused on populations where animals defend their territories by communicating indirectly, e.g. via scent marks. However, many animal populations defend...
