  • Grain surface-roughness effects on colloidal retention in the vadose zone 

    Morales, Verónica L.; Gao, Bin; Steenhuis, Tammo S. (Soil Science Society of America, 2009-02)
    Work to date has raised awareness regarding the importance of transport of colloids in the vadose zone, as it is the critical connection between shallow contaminant sources and the deeper groundwater. Existing models do ...
  • Granular bed baffled reactor (Grabbr): solution to a two-phase anaerobic digestion system 

    Baloch, M. I.; Akunna, Joseph C. (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2003-11)
    A single unit anaerobic granular bed baffled reactor (GRABBR) is proposed as an alternative to a separately operated two-phase anaerobic digestion system. This overcomes the problems related to wastewater treatment at high ...
  • Grocery loyalty : Tesco Clubcard and its impact on loyalty 

    Turner, Jason J.; Wilson, Karen (Emerald, 2006)
    Abstract: Purpose – The aim of the research is to identify the impact of the Tesco Clubcard on customer loyalty. The secondary aim is to contrast customer perceptions of the Clubcard, staff and “feeling valued” to identify ...
  • Gross primary productivity of a high elevation tropical montane cloud forest 

    van de Weg, Martine Janet; Meir, Patrick; Williams, Mathew; Girardin, Cécile; Malhi, Yadvinder; Silva-Espejo, Javier; Grace, John (Springer US, 2014-03-08)
    For decades, the productivity of tropical montane cloud forests (TMCF) has been assumed to be lower than in tropical lowland forests due to nutrient limitation, lower temperatures, and frequent cloud immersion, although ...
  • Gross solid transport in sewers 

    Butler, D.; Davies, J. W.; Jefferies, Christopher; Schütze, M. (Thomas Telford, 2003-06)
    Gross solid transport in sewers has been studied in the laboratory, by theoretical analysis, and in the field. A simplified model is proposed that can be run as an extension of existing sewer software packages (for example ...
  • Gross solids transport and degradation 

    Davies, J. W.; Butler, D.; Small, J. L.; Sekuloski, V.; Jefferies, Christopher (IWA Publishing, 1998)
    The paper describes the first stages of a study of the origin, transport, and fate of sewer gross solids. The background to the project, its overall plan, and relevant previous studies are outlined. Progress to-date is ...
  • ‘Guys! Stop doing it!’: young women's adoption and rejection of safety advice when socializing in bars, pubs and clubs 

    Brooks, Oona (Oxford University Press, 2011)
    Concern about the increase in alcohol consumption amongst young women, drink spiking and drug-assisted sexual assault have culminated in a renewed focus on safety advice for young women. This paper examines young women's ...
  • Gyorgy Lukacs 

    Law, Alex (Edinburgh University Press, 2005)
  • Handedness and behavioural inhibition: Left-handed females show most inhibition as measured by BIS/BAS self-report 

    Wright, Lynn; Hardie, Scott M.; Wilson, Karen (Elsevier, 2008-10-09)
    This study investigated the relationship between handedness, gender and behavioural approach and inhibition using Carver and White’s (1994) BIS/BAS Scale. 112 participants took part: 46 left-handers and 66 right-handers. ...
  • The HCR-20 as a measure of reliable and clinically significant change in violence risk among secure psychiatric inpatients 

    O'Shea, Laura E.; Dickens, Geoffrey L. (Elsevier, 2015-07-20)
    Objective Periodic structured violence risk assessment is the principle method underlying treatment planning for mentally disordered offenders but little is known about how risk changes over time. We aimed to determine ...
  • He sees, she smells? Male and female reports of sensory reliance in mate choice and non-mate choice contexts 

    Havlicek, Jan; Saxton, Tamsin K.; Roberts, S. Craig; Jozifkova, Eva; Lhota, Stanislav; Valentova, Jaroslava; Flegr, Jaroslav (Elsevier, 2008-10)
    Men and women differ in the importance that they ascribe to the characters of a potential mate. Previous work has shown that women rate olfactory cues as more important than men in mate choice. We investigated whether this ...
  • Health complaints among adolescents: associations with more screen-based behaviours and less physical activity 

    Marques, Adilson; Calmeiro, Luis; Loureiro, Nuno; Frasquilho, Diana; Matos, Margarida Gaspar de (Elsevier, 2015-08-11)
    In this study, we investigated the relationship between screen-based behaviours, physical activity, and health complaints (headaches, feeling low, irritability, and nervousness). Screen-based behaviour included TV viewing, ...
  • Health related behaviours: grouped risks across adolescence 

    Matos, Margarida Gaspar de; Calmeiro, Luis; Batista-Foguet, Joan M.; Loureiro, Nuno; Mota, Jorge (Federação Brasileira de Terapias Cognitivas, 2007)
    Purpose: Adolescence can be associated with a tendency to engage in health damaging behaviour. The purpose of this study is to test whether cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors are present in this age group, and to ...
  • Hegemony 

    Law, Alex (Edinburgh University Press, 2005)
  • Helping formulate propositions in forensic DNA analysis 

    Buckleton, John; Bright, Jo-Anne; Taylor, Duncan; Evett, Ian; Hicks, Tacha; Jackson, Graham; Curran, James M. (Elsevier, 2014-07)
    The Bayesian paradigm is the preferred approach to evidence interpretation. It requires the evaluation of the probability of the evidence under at least two propositions. The value of the findings (i.e., our LR) will depend ...
  • Heterogeneity in susceptible–infected–removed (SIR) epidemics on lattices 

    Neri, Franco M.; Perez-Reche, Francisco J.; Taraskin, Sergei N.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (The Royal Society, 2011-02)
