Peer review of saline intrusion model and risk assessment for the exploration phase of the Wellington Harbour Exploration Bores Project
This report presents a peer review of groundwater modelling work carried out by Earth in Mind as part of the exploration phase Wellington Harbour Exploration Bores project (termed SP1a). The SP1a project has the objective ...
Impact of Volcanic Ash on Road and Airfield Surface Skid Resistance
Volcanic ash deposited on paved surfaces during volcanic eruptions often compromises skid resistance, which is a major component of safety. We adopt the British pendulum test method in laboratory conditions to investigate ...
Semantic Referencing - Determining Context Weights for Similarity Measurement
Semantic similarity measurement is a key methodology in various domains ranging from cognitive science to geographic information retrieval on the Web. Meaningful notions of similarity, however, cannot be determined ...
Modelling Information Quality and Source Reliability to Improve the Trust of Volunteered Geographic Information
Crowdsourcing and volunteered geographic information (VGI) can improve the way we collect information about the world we live in, but they are not without limitations. Traditionally sourced geographic information (GI) ...
Numerical Study of Flow and Pedestrian Level Wind Comfort Inside Uniform and Non-Uniform Street Canyons with Different Street Width to Building Height Aspect Ratios
The aim of this study is to provide input into knowledge-based expert systems by providing mean wind speed at the entire pedestrian level street width. The air flow around an individual building is complex. Around two ...
Model of Risk of Exposure to Lyme Borreliosis and Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus-Infected Ticks in the Border Area of the Czech Republic (South Bohemia) and Germany (Lower Bavaria and Upper Palatinate)
(MDPI AG, 2019)
In Europe, Lyme borreliosis (LB) and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) are the two vector-borne diseases with the largest impact on human health. Based on data on the density of host-seeking Ixodes ricinus ticks and pathogen ...
Geospatial Assessment of Coseismic Landslides in Baturagung Area
(Forum Geografi, 2016)
Java, the most densely populated island in Indonesia, is located on top of the most seismically active areas in Southeast Asia: the Sunda Megathrust. This area is frequently hit by strong earthquake. More than 3,300 M>5 ...

The Importance of Public Space for Sustainable Urban Rehabilitation
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2010)
This study aims to reinforce the linkages between researches on urban planning and disaster risk management, through the clarification of the importance of public spaces for the improvement of disaster prevention ...
Estimating in situ rock mass strength and elastic modulus of granite from the Soultz-sous-Forêts geothermal reservoir (France)
Knowledge of the strength and elastic modulus of a reservoir rock is important for the optimisation of a particular geothermal resource. The reservoir rock for many geothermal projects in the Upper Rhine Graben, such as ...
