  • A broadband cavity-enhanced spectrometer for atmospheric trace gas measurements and Rayleigh scattering cross sections in the cyan region (470–540 nm) 

    Jordan, Nick; Ye, Connie Z.; Ghosh, Satyaki; Washenfelder, Rebecca A.; Brown, Steven S.; Osthoff, Hans D. (Copernicus, Science, Chemistry, 2019-02-27)
    An incoherent broadband cavity-enhanced absorption spectroscopy (IBBCEAS) instrument for quantification of atmospheric trace gases that absorb in the cyan region of the electromagnetic spectrum (470 to 540 nm), ...
  • The effect of male age on patterns of sexual segregation in Siberian ibex 

    Wang, Muyang; Alves, Joana; Alves da Silva, António; Yang, Weikang; Ruckstuhl, Kathreen E. (Science, CAS Key Laboratory of Biogeography and Bioresources in Arid Land, Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Urumqi, 830011, China, CFE-Centre for Functional Ecology, Department of Life Sciences, University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive Northwest, Calgary, AB, T2N 1N4, Canada, Publisher's version, 2018-08-30)
    Sexual segregation is very common in sexually size dimorphic ungulates and may be the result of different habitat preferences and/or differential social behaviours of males and females. Various hypotheses have been put ...
  • Effects of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on ruminating, grazing, and bedding time in bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) 

    Wang, Muyang; Alves, Joana; Tucker, Meghan; Yang, Weikang; Ruckstuhl, Kathreen E (Public Library of Science, Science, Biological Sciences, University of Calgary, CAS Key Laboratory of Biogeography and Bioresources in Arid Land, Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Urumqi, China, Centre for Functional Ecology (CFE), Department of Life Sciences, University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal, CAS Key Laboratory of Biogeography and Bioresources in Arid Land, Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Urumqi, China, Publisher's version, 2018-10-29)
    Rumination is the repeated process of regurgitation of a food bolus, followed by chewing, swallowing, and regurgitation, which enhance nutrient assimilation. Time spent in lateral recumbency (i.e., bedded, lying) has often ...
  • A Rapid Analytical Method for the Selective Quenching-Free Determination of Thiols by GC-FPD 

    McKelvie, Kaylan H.; Thurbide, Kevin B. (Springer, Science, Chemistry, Post-print, 2018-11)
    A rapid method is introduced, which facilitates the selective gas chromatography – flame photometric detection (GC-FPD) analysis of thiols. The method uses lead oxide particles or plumbite solution to complex thiols into ...
  • Closed reduction of traumatic atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation with type II odontoid fracture 

    Opoku-Darko, Michael; Isaacs, Albert M.; Duplessis, Stephan J. (Science, 2017-11-05)
    Background: Traumatic atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation (TAARS) in adults is rare. We present an uncommon case of traumatic atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation with an associated type II odontoid fracture in a neurologically-intact ...
  • Obese Yeast Result from Uncontrolled Gpt2 Activity 

    Cardenas Rivas, Anabel (University of Calgary, Science, Biological Sciences, University of Calgary, 2018-09-21)
  • Beyond the Physical: Examining Scale and Annotation in Virtual Reality Visualizations 

    Ulusoy, Teoman; Danyluk, Kurtis Thorvald; Willett, Wesley J. (Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, 2018-10-10)
    We examine how viewers in virtual reality (VR) environments interact with simple data visualizations at scales ranging from hand-sized to room-sized. We also explore how the addition of virtual annotation and filtering ...
  • Look-From Camera Control for 3D Terrain Maps 

    Danyluk, Kurtis Thorvald; Jenny, Bernhard; Willett, Wesley J. (Association for Computing Machinery, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, Monash University,, 2018-10)
    We introduce three lightweight interactive camera control techniques for 3D terrain maps on touch devices based on a look-from metaphor (Discrete Look-From-At, Continuous Look- From-Forward, and Continuous Look-From-Towards). ...
  • Mapping the Current Understanding of Text Input within Virtual and Augmented Reality Environments 

    Vi, Steven (University of Calgary, Science, Computer Science, 2018-09-26)
    Text input is a vital part of how people interact with technology. With the emergence of augmented and virtual reality platforms, we see the adoption of new interaction devices and techniques that move away from traditional ...
  • A comparison of inhomogeneous magnetization transfer, myelin volume fraction, and diffusion tensor imaging measures in healthy children 

    Geeraert, Bryce L.; Lebel, Robert Marc; Mah, Alyssa C.; Deoni, Sean C. L.; Alsop, David C.; Varma, Gopal; Lebel, Catherine A. (Science, University of Calgary, 2017-09-12)
    Sensitive and specific biomarkers of myelin can help define baseline brain health and development, identify and monitor disease pathology, and evaluate response to treatment where myelin content is affected. Diffusion ...
