In Fall 2008 NASA selected a large international consortium to produce a comprehensive automated feature-recognition system for the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The SDO data that we consider are all of the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) images plus surface magnetic-field images from the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI). We produce robust,(More)
Work-related driving safety is an emerging concern for Australian and overseas organisations. Research has shown that road crashes are the most common cause of work-related fatalities, injuries and absences from work. This study’s objectives were to identify driver characteristics which pose potential risks to work-related driving safety within the(More)
SoyFACE is the first FACEexperiment to focus on a seed legume and on corn and the first to explore the interactions of both elevated (eHCO z] and e[O)] on the growth and development of an arable crop. The intent of the SoyFACE experiment is to orchestrate a coordinated and comprehensive investigation of the impact of atmospheric change on this expansive(More)
Occupational fleet safety is an emerging issue for organisations across Australia and overseas. Research has shown that road crashes are the most common cause of work-related fatalities, injuries and absences from work.

This study reports on the utilisation of the Manchester Driving Behaviour Questionnaire (DBQ) and the Driving Attitude Questionnaire (DAQ) to examine the self-reported aberrant driving behaviours and safety attitudes of a sample of Australian fleet drivers (N = 443). Surveys were posted to drivers who agreed to participate in the study. Univariate analyses(More)
Driver training and education initiatives are often considered the cornerstone of many organisational fleet safety approaches, however there is currently little evidence regarding the effectiveness of such interventions. Similarly, the evidence regarding the value of other programs such as driving incentives also remains mixed, as fleet managers search to(More)
While recent years have seen a growing body of work-related road safety research from a behavioural perspective, scant research concerning taxi drivers has been reported. Currently there is little gathered evidence regarding taxi driver’s attitudes and road safety perceptions and research has yet to examine the extent of this group’s engagement in aberrant(More)

The Driver Behaviour Questionnaire (DBQ) continues to be the most widely utilised self-report scale globally to assess crash risk and aberrant driving behaviours among motorists. However, the scale also attracts criticism regarding its perceived limited ability to accurately identify those most at risk of crash involvement. This study reports on the(More)
This study reports on the utilisation of the Driver Attitude Questionnaire (DAQ) to examine the self-reported behaviours of a sample of Australian fleet drivers (N = 416). Surveys were posted to drivers who agreed to participate in the study. Univariate analyses of the four DAQ subscales revealed that respondents were least concerned about speeding,(More)
