      We present an overview of state-of-the-art chemistry–climate and chemistry transport models that are used within phase 1 of the Chemistry–Climate Model Initiative (CCMI-1). The CCMI aims to conduct a detailed evaluation ...
    • A Review of the History, Theory and Observations of Gravitational Microlensing up until the Present Day. 

      McClelland, Tamsyn (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2008)
      Gravitational microlensing has become almost a household term in the world of astronomy and astrophysics. It has derived fame from being the only technique yet developed that is capable of the detection of Earth-sized ...
