A North Carolina Field Study to Evaluate Greenroof Runoff Quantity, Runoff Quality, and Plant Growth
MORAN, AMY CHRISTINE. A North Carolina Field Study to Evaluate Greenroof Runoff Quantity, Runoff Quality, and Plant Growth. (Under the direction of Gregory D. Jennings and William F. Hunt) TwoExpand
The depolarization - attenuated backscatter relation: CALIPSO lidar measurements vs. theory.
TLDR
A high-backscatter, low-depolarization delta-gamma relationship observed for some ice clouds is shown to result primarily from horizontally oriented plates and implies a preferential lidar ratio - depolarization ratio relation in nature for ice cloud particles containing plates. Expand
THE ECONOMICS OF STRUCTURAL STORMWATER BMPs IN NORTH CAROLINA
Urban stormwater runoff and the associated negative quantitative and qualitative effects can be controlled by various best management practices (BMPs). These innovations run along the continuum ofExpand
The CALIPSO mission and initial results from CALIOP
Satellite lidars are now beginning to provide new capabilities for global atmospheric sensing from space. Following the Lidar In-space Technology Experiment (LITE), which flew on the Space Shuttle inExpand
Temporal road closures improve habitat quality for wildlife
TLDR
Assessment of how implementation of a temporal road closure affected wildlife movements in Banff National Park suggested temporal closures are an important conservation tool that can increase habitat quality for wildlife while minimizing effects on people. Expand
Assessing Potential Habitat and Carrying Capacity for Reintroduction of Plains Bison (Bison bison bison) in Banff National Park
TLDR
The successful reintroduction of bison into Banff would represent a significant global step towards conserving this iconic species, and the approach provides a useful template for evaluating potential habitat for other endangered species reintroductions into their former range. Expand
Estimating occupancy using spatially and temporally replicated snow surveys
Occupancy modelling is increasingly used to monitor changes in the spatial distribution of rare and threatened species. Occupancy methods have traditionally relied upon temporally replicated surveysExpand
Retrieval of ocean subsurface particulate backscattering coefficient from space-borne CALIOP lidar measurements.
TLDR
Compared with the results obtained from MODIS ocean color measurements, the comparison analysis shows that ocean subsurface lidar backscatter and particulate backscattering coefficient bbp can be accurately obtained from CALIOP lidar measurements, thereby supporting the use of space-borne lidar measured for ocean subsURface studies.
