  • Quantum Phase Characterization via Entanglement Scaling in Fermionic Quantum Wires 

    Cameron, Alexander Carlo (Science, University of Calgary, 2019-10-08)
    Quantum entanglement is studied in the context of its use as a probe of quantum phases within fermionic non-interacting quantum wires. In particular, we consider the uniform lattice, as well as the Su-Schreiffer-Heeger ...
  • Measuring Catastrophic Health Expenditure: Innovation and Validation 

    Jiang, Jing (Arts, University of Calgary, 2019-10-04)
    This research attempts to provide an innovative approach to measuring Catastrophic Health Expenditure (CHE) that captures the dynamics of household assets globally. CHE is a major cause that pushes households into poverty ...
  • Deforestation in Indonesia: The Politics of Land Use Change Post Suharto 

    Sharma, Chetan (Arts, University of Calgary, 2019-10-01)
    Over the past 25 years over 130 million hectares of natural forest land on our planet has been lost accelerating climate change and threatening the world’s most diverse ecosystems. Although the annual rate of global ...
  • Central-place foraging, crop yield, and population change in bees: A study in canola agroecosystems 

    Robinson, Samuel Victor Joseph (Science, University of Calgary, 2019-10-01)
    Canola (Brassica napus L.) is a valuable crop that occupies a large part of the Canadian prairies, and is visited by wild and managed bees. However, the distribution of foraging bees in mass-flowering crops (MFCs), the ...
  • The Effect of Political Ideology on Moral Judgments of Minority Group Members 

    Parker, Daniel J. (Arts, University of Calgary, 2019-09-30)
    There is evidence liberals are more likely to perceive minority group members as victims of racial discrimination and unfair treatment compared to conservatives. We examined whether perceived victim status affects people's ...
  • Anelastic attenuation and anisotropy in seismic data: modeling and imaging 

    Fathalian, Ali (Science, University of Calgary, 2019-09-30)
    Anisotropy and attenuation are critical to the modeling and analysis of seismic amplitude, phase, and traveltime data. Neglect of either of these phenomena, which are often both operating simultaneously, diminishes the ...
  • The Irony of Climate Science and the Race to Net Zero A Carbon Footprint Investigation 

    MacKinnon, Catherine Marie (Graduate Studies Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2019-08-19)
    A carbon footprint investigation of the Kluane Lake Research Station (KLRS), which supports the advancement of climate science, is vital to identify the organization’s large-scale contribution to climate change. A comprehensive ...
  • A Sustainable and Multi-Operator Approach to Water Management in Unconventional Oil and Gas Developments 

    Ballesteros, Sergio (Graduate Studies Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2019-08-19)
    Unconventional oil and gas developments are causing significant footprints resulting from freshwater use, temporary water infrastructure and the greenhouse gas emissions associated with water hauling truck trips. These ...
  • Residential Solar PV Standard 

    McGoey, Thomas (Graduate Studies Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2019-08-19)
    Alberta is one of Canada’s most attractive jurisdictions for solar PV deployment because of the resource availability. Alberta’s recent regulatory environment, which included attractive incentives that encouraged residential ...
  • Reversible Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Technology for Carbon Utilization in Alberta 

    Masri, Abraham Omar (Graduate Studies Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2019-08-19)
    Alberta’s economy is heavily dependent on the oil & gas sector, and with increasing concern over climate change and global warming from anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere, there is an urgent need for decarbonizing the ...
