Risk of rising sea level to population and land area
Low-elevation land areas and their populations are at risk globally from rising sea level. Global sea level has risen by about 2 millimeters per year over the past century. About half of this riseExpand

GIS analysis of global impacts from sea level rise.
Future sea level rise caused by climate change would disrupt the physical processes, economic activities, and social systems in coastal regions. Based on a hypothetical global sea level increase ofExpand

A Cartographic Framework for Visualizing Risk
We propose a conceptual framework of key cartographic considerations that warrant consideration for hazard and risk mapping in general, including categorizing and representing risk, selecting an appropriate level of realism, and displaying potential impacts of a hazard on human populations. Expand

Cartographic Symbols for Humanitarian Demining
Abstract A new standard set of cartographic symbols for landmine hazards and mine actions (e.g., clearances, hazard reductions, mine risk education (MRE), and technical surveys) in humanitarianExpand

Approaching Cave Level Identification with GIS: A Case Study of Carter Caves
Cave passages that are found at similar elevations are grouped together and called levels. The current understanding is that passages within a level are speleogenetically linked to a common staticExpand

High-and low-field dielectric characteristics of dielectrophoretically aligned ceramic/polymer nanocomposites
Polymer/ceramic composites with controlled spatial distribution of fillers are synthesized, and the corresponding changes in their properties are studied. Using dielectrophoretic assembly, we createExpand

Environmental stress as an indicator of anthropogenic impact across the African Albertine Rift: a case study using museum specimens
We examined fluctuating asymmetry (FA) and body condition (BC) as two measures of environmental stress using museum specimens of Lophuromys aquilus, a rodent species complex wide-spread across theExpand
