2 The climate and environment of Byzantine Anatolia: Integrating science, history, and archaeologyThis article, which is part of a larger project, examines cases in which high-resolution archaeological, textual, and environmental data can be integrated with longer-term, low-resolution data to afford greater precision in identifying some of the causal relationships underlying societal change.2014-01-01
3 Effects of bedrock lithology and subglacial till on the motion of Ruth Glacier, Alaska, deduced from five pulses from 1973 to 2012A pulse is a type of unstable glacier flow intermediate between normal flow and surging. Using Landsat MSS, TM and ETM+ imagery and feature-tracking software, a time series of mostly annual velocity maps from 1973 to 2012 was produced that reveals five pulses of Ruth Glacier, Alaska. Peaks in ice ve...2014-01-01
4 Ice surface morphology and flow on Malaspina Glacier, Alaska: Implications for regional tectonics in the Saint Elias orogenThe Saint Elias Mountains in southern Alaska are located at a structural syntaxis where the coastal thrust and fold belt of the Fairweather plate boundary intersects thrust faults and folds generated by collision of the Yakutat Terrane. The axial trace of this syntaxis extends southeastward out of t...2014-01-01
5 Urban land expansion and spatial dynamics in Globalizing ShanghaiUrban land expansion in China has attracted considerable scholarly attention. However, more work is needed to apply spatial modeling to understanding the mechanisms of urban growth from both institutional and physical perspectives. This paper analyzes urban expansion in Shanghai and its development ...2014-01-01
6 Prevalence of pure versus mixed snow cover pixels across spatial resolutions in alpine environmentsRemote sensing of snow-covered area (SCA) can be binary (indicating the presence/absence of snow cover at each pixel) or fractional (indicating the fraction of each pixel covered by snow). Fractional SCA mapping provides more information than binary SCA, but is more difficult to implement and may no...2014-01-01
7 Explaining the presence of perennial liquid water bodies in the firn of the Greenland Ice SheetRecent observations have shown that the firn layer on the Greenland Ice Sheet features subsurface bodies of liquid water at the end of the winter season. Using a model with basic firn hydrology, thermodynamics, and compaction in one dimension, we find that a combination of moderate to strong surface...2014-01-01
8 Summer melt regulates winter glacier flow speeds throughout AlaskaPredicting how climate change will affect glacier and ice sheet flow speeds remains a large hurdle toward accurate sea level rise forecasting. Increases in surface melt rates are known to accelerate glacier flow in summer, whereas in winter, flow speeds are believed to be relatively invariant. Here ...2013-01-01
9 Application and evaluation of spatial heterogeneity model in the simulation of urban expansionBased on remote sensing images and GIS data, we applied spatial expansion expansion method and geographically weighted logistic regression (GWLR) model to explore the driving forces of urban expansion in Jiangning District of Nanjing from 1999 to 2010. Special attention was paid to spatial heterogen...2013-01-01
10 Urbanization, land use, and sustainable development in ChinaChina's economic reforms and unprecedented growth have generated many fascinating issues for scholarly research. An understanding of urbanization and land use change in China is required for appropriate strategies and policies to facilitate future sustainable development. This paper reviews the lite...2014-01-01
11 Initial in situ measurements of perennial meltwater storage in the Greenland firn aquiferA perennial storage of water in a firn aquifer was discovered in southeast Greenland in 2011. We present the first in situ measurements of the aquifer, including densities and temperatures. Water was present at depths between ~12 and 37m and amounted to 18.7 ± 0.9 kg in the extracted core. The wate...2014-01-01
12 Do air quality alerts reduce traffic? An analysis of traffic data from the Salt Lake City metropolitan areaThis research explores the unintended behavioral consequences on traffic volumes of the Air Quality Alert notification system in Salt Lake and Davis Counties, Utah.Air Quality; Traffic; Salt Lake; Davis; Ozone; PM 2.52013
13 Spatial determinants of urban growth in Chinese Cities: a case study of dongguanBy 2012, 51.3% of the population in China lived in the urban areas.Spatial Non-stationary Process, Spatial Expansion, Urban Growth, Dongguan, China2012
14 Dynamics, space, and regional inequality in provincial China: a case study of Guangdong provinceThis paper investigates the regional inequality in one of the most developed provinces in China, Guangdong, from 1979 to 2009 and follows the multi-scale and multi-mechanism framework. We have found a new round of intensifying inequality in Guangdong since the early 2000s, which is attributed to the...2012-01-01

17 Production and R&D networks of foreign ventures in China: implications for technological dynamism and regional developmentThis paper analyzes the nature of FDI local networks in production and R&D activities in China and discusses their implications for technological dynamism and regional development. We investigate foreign ventures (or foreign-invested enterprises, FIEs) in the information and communication technology...2012-01
18 Geomorphic and hazard vulnerability assessment of recent residential developments on landslide-prone terrain: the case of the Traverse Mountains, Utah, USAHomeowners who live near or on steep slopes of the Traverse Mountains along the Wasatch front in southern Salt Lake City, Utah (USA) are at risk where development of "master-planned communities" has been permitted on known landslide deposits since 2001. Some of the largest landslides in the state o...2010
19 Restructuring the Sunan model, globalizing regional development: trajectories of development in Kunshan, ChinaThis paper attempts to advance the research on globalization and regional development in China through a study of Kunshan City.

23 OSL chronologies for Aeolian activity in the context of lake-level fluctuations, drainage reorganization and glacial retreat, North-Central MinnesotaDunes and stratified eolian sedi-ments are a significant component of the postglacial landscape across the mid-continent. During the 1970s, a benchmark study in north-central Minne-sota inferred a period of eolian activity 8,000 ? 5,000 years ago (i.e., the Altithermal Hypsithermal periods), based u...2006
