  • Considering multiple anthropogenic threats in the context of natural variability: Ecological processes in a regulated riverine ecosystem 

    Sinnatamby, R. Niloshini; Mayer, Bernhard; Kruk, Mary K.; Rood, Stewart B.; Farineau, Anne; Post, John R. (Wiley, Science, Biological Sciences, University of Calgary, acceptedVersion, 2020-06-09)
    Rivers are among the most altered environments globally, but identifying which threats are responsible for observed biotic and abiotic changes is complicated by natural drivers of variation. The Bow River, Canada provides ...
  • Multi-Agent Simulations of Intra-colony Violence in Ants 

    Martin, Kit; Sengupta, Pratim (Springer, Other, Northwestern University, University of Calgary, 2020-06)
    This paper seeks to elucidate key aspects of a rarely-studied interaction in ant colonies -- intra-colony violence -- using multi-agent-based computational simulations. A central finding is that intra-colony violence is ...
  • The contribution of aqueous catechol-silica complexes to silicification during carbonate diagenesis 

    Escario Perez, Sofia; Nightingale, Michael; Humez, Pauline; Tutolo, Benjamin M. (J.GCA, Science, Geoscience, University of Calgary, 2020-04)
    Pore-filling and carbonate-replacing silica is exceedingly common in carbonates, but the fundamental geochemical mechanisms that drive these silicification reactions during diagenesis remain poorly understood. An existing ...
  • PixelClipper: Supporting Public Engagement and Conversation About Visualizations 

    Walny, Jagoda; Storteboom, Sarah; Pusch, Richard; Hwang, Steven Munsu; Knudsen, Søren; Carpendale, Sheelagh; Willett, Wesley J. (IEEE, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary,, acceptedVersion, 2020-03)
    In this article, we present PixelClipper, a tool built for facilitating data engagement events. PixelClipper supports conversations around visualizations in public settings through annotation and commenting capabilities. ...
  • Active Control of Selectivity in Organic Acid Analysis by Gas Chromatography 

    Darko, Ernest; Thurbide, Kevin B. (Science, Chemistry, University of Calgary, acceptedVersion, 2020-03-04)
    A new method that allows organic acid selectivity to be dynamically controlled during gas chromatography (GC) is presented. It employs dual in-series stainless steel columns, each coated with a pH-adjusted water stationary ...
  • High Performance Tubular Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Based on Ba0.5Sr0.5Ce0.6Zr0.2Gd0.1Y0.1O3-? Proton Conducting Electrolyte 

    Amiri, Taghi; Singh, Kalpana; Sandhu, Navjot Kaur; Hanifi, Amir Reza; Etsell, Thomas H.; Luo, Jing-Li; Thangadurai, Venkataraman; Sarkar, Partha (The Electrochemical Society, Science, Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary,, publishedVersion, 2018-07-07)
    In this work, synthesis and characterization of an anode supported tubular solid oxide fuel cell based on Ba0.5Sr0.5Ce0.6Zr0.2Gd0.1Y0.1O3-? (BSCZGY) electrolyte has been investigated. Anode-supported Ni - yttria-stabilized ...
  • Chemically Stable Proton Conducting Doped BaCeO3 -No More Fear to SOFC Wastes 

    Kannan, Ramaiyan; Singh, Kalpana; Gill, Sukhdeep; Fürstenhaupt, Tobias; Thangadurai, Venkataraman (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, Science, Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary, publishedVersion, 2013-07-04)
    Development of chemically stable proton conductors for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) will solve several issues, including cost associated with expensive inter-connectors and long-term durability. Best known Y-doped BaCeO3 ...
  • Electrolyte selection for supercapacitive devices: a critical review 

    Pal, Bhupender; Yang, Shengyuan; Ramesh, Subramaniam; Thangadurai, Venkataraman; Jose, Rajan (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Science, Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary,, publishedVersion, 2019-08-27)
    Electrolytes are one of the vital constituents of electrochemical energy storage devices and their physical and chemical properties play an important role in these devices' performance, including capacity, power density, ...
  • The synthesis and electrical properties of hybrid gel electrolytes derived from Keggin-type heteropoly acids and 3-(pyridin-1-ium-1-yl)propane-1-sulfonate (PyPs) 

    Narayanan, Sumaletha; Tong, Xia; Thangadurai, Venkataraman (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Science, Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary,, publishedVersion, 2016-10-12)
    Herein, we report the effect of the proton concentration in polyoxometalates (POMs) upon hybrid formation with ionic liquids (ILs), and their ionic conductivity relationship to optimize their ionic conductivity. The hybrid ...
  • Comparative Evaluation of Coated and Non-Coated Carbon Electrodes in a Microbial Fuel Cell for Treatment of Municipal Sludge 

    Nandy, Arpita; Sharma, Mohita; Venkatesan, Senthil Velan; Taylor, Nicole; Gieg, Lisa; Thangadurai, Venkataraman (MDPI AG, Science, Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary,, publishedVersion, 2019-03-16)
