Upogebia deltaura (Crustacea: Thalassinidea) in Clyde Sea maerl beds, Scotland
Burrows inhabited by Upogebia deltaura (Crustacea: Thalassinidea) were studied over a two-year period on two maerl beds at 10 m below Chart Datum (CD) in the Clyde Sea area, Scotland. Labelled burrows proved to be stable ...
Observations and possible function of the striking anterior coloration pattern of Galathea intermedia (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura)
Galathea intermedia is common, but cryptic, on Clyde maerl deposits where it lives in small groups of mixed sex and age, sharing shelters (typically dead Dosinia shells) to avoid predation. Its appearance is marked by six ...
Horizons: a vocational approach to the National Curriculum
Self-similarity of the meddy family in the eastern North Atlantic
In this study we analyze two groups of Mediterranean salt lenses: "mid-life' lenses, typically 1-2 years old, observed in the Canary Basin, and younger Meddies from the Iberian Basin. Nonlinear transformation of variables ...
A young lens of Red Sea water in the Arabian Sea
CTD data collected in March-April 1980 in the Arabian Sea during the 22nd cruise of R.V. Akademik Vernadsky were used to investigate the structure and dynamics of a young lens of Red Sea Water (Reddy) in the initial stage ...
Dynamics of dense water cascades at the shelf edge
Plumes of dense shelf water cascade down continental slopes in many parts of the world's oceans and provide a mechanism for shelf-ocean exchange. In this paper a nonlinear process-orientated theory is developed and used ...
Capture and release of Lagrangian floats by eddies in shear flow
A mechanism to explain the observed trapping or release of Lagrangian drifters by eddies is proposed, based on an interaction between the eddy circulation and the background flow. Eddies strong in relation to the background ...
Problem Based Learning and its use on the Automotive Engineering Design Course at Coventry University
The Automotive Engineering Design course at Coventry University has been in operation since October 1989 and has earned a reputation for creating able engineers well prepared for industry. When originally conceived, a ...
Wind Turbines In The Landscape: Final Report & Script
The aim of this project was to produce a video film where the visual impact issues associated with current UK wind farms are addressed. The video is targeted to an audience of planners, planning committee members, planning ...
Visual Impact Assessment - There's more to it than meets the eye!
The visual impact of a wind farm is one of the major causes of concern for all current U.K. wind farm projects. Often visual impact is the single most important issue on which a planning application is judged. A fair and ...
