High-Density, High-Resolution, Low-Cost Air Quality Sensor Networks for Urban Air Monitoring. The SNAQ Heathrow Project
Monitoring air quality in highly granular environments such as urban areas which are spatially heterogeneous with variable emission sources, measurements need to be made at appropriate spatial and temporal scales. Current ...
Herschel-ATLAS : the far-infrared properties and star-formation rates of broad absorption line quasi-stellar objects
We have used data from the Herschel Astrophysical Terahertz Large-Area Survey (H-ATLAS) at 250, 350 and 500 μm to determine the far-infrared (FIR) properties of 50 broad absorption line quasars (BAL QSOs)
The properties of the star-forming interstellar medium at z=0.8-2.2 from HiZELS II : star formation and clump scaling laws in gas-rich, turbulent disks
We present adaptive optics assisted integral field spectroscopy of nine Ha-selected galaxies at z = 0.84-2.23 drawn from the HiZELS narrowband survey. Our observations map the kinematics of these star-forming galaxies on ...
Estimation of radiative forcing by the dust and non-dust content in mixed East Asian pollution plumes on the basis of depolarization ratios measured with lidar
The contribution of dust and non-dust aerosols to the lidar observed total backscattering was estimated from the linear particle depolarization ratios (delta(p)) under the assumption of externally mixed aerosols. During ...
An ALMA survey of submillimetre galaxies in the Extended Chandra Deep Field-South : Detection of [Cii] at z = 4.4
We present Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) 870-μm (345-GHz) observations of two submillimetre galaxies (SMGs) drawn from an ALMA study of the 126 submillimetre sources from the LABOCA Extended Chandra Deep Field-South ...
Aerosol profiling with lidar in the Amazon Basin during the wet and dry season
For the first time, multiwavelength polarization Raman lidar observations of optical and microphysical particle properties over the Amazon Basin are presented. The fully automated advanced Raman lidar was deployed 60 km ...
AzTEC half square degree survey of the SHADES fields - II : Identifications, redshifts and evidence for large-scale structure
The Astronomical Thermal Emission Camera (AzTEC) 1.1mm survey of the two SCUBA HAlf Degree Extragalactic Survey (SHADES) fields is the largest (0.7 deg ) blank-field millimetre-wavelength (mm-wavelength) survey undertaken ...
We present LITTLE THINGS (Local Irregulars That Trace Luminosity Extremes, The H I Nearby Galaxy Survey), which is aimed at determining what drives star formation in dwarf galaxies. This is a multi-wavelength survey of 37 ...
Impacts of organic amendments on carbon stocks of an agricultural soil - Comparison of model-simulations to measurements
Organic amendments such as straw, green manure or farmyard manure are used to mitigate the soil carbon (C) losses from cultivated soils. We investigated the role of various organic amendments with different C quality for ...
Remote sensing of chiral signatures on Mars
We describe circular polarization as a remote sensing diagnostic of chiral signatures which may be applied to Mars. The remarkable phenomenon of homochirality provides a unique biosignature which can be amenable to remote ...
