Environmental Sensor Networks (ESNs) facilitate the study of fundamental processes and the development of hazard response systems. They have evolved from passive logging systems that require manual downloading, into 'intelligent' sensor networks that comprise a network of automatic sensor nodes and communications systems which actively communicate their(More)
The developments in wireless network technology and miniaturization makes it possible to realistically monitor the natural environment. Within the field of environmental sensor networks, domain knowledge is an essential fourth component. Before designing and installing any system, it is necessary to understand its physical environment and deployment in(More)
1 associated with rapid climate change. Abstract 12 Recent research has raised concerns about the potential influence of rapid climate change 13 on the stability of major ice sheets. The behaviour of glaciers is determined largely by the 14 processes and conditions operating at their base. Technological advances have enabled 15 these factors to be examined(More)
A wireless sensor network has been designed and deployed to gather data from nodes deployed inside glaciers. This paper describes the solutions to power management, radio communications and other challenges faced in the system together with a discussion of the performance of the final system. 18 months of data have now been received, which provide an(More)
In preclinical dentistry, precise terminal knowledge of results (KR) typically is provided by an instructor when the student has completed all or a portion of a preparation. A contemporary model of psychomotor learning implies that performance can be improved if continual precise KR also is available. This investigation compared a traditional instructional(More)
The effects of diazepam (2.5 and 5 mg) and amylobarbitone sodium (50 and 100 mg) on performance and subjective effects were assessed in a group of twelve healthy subjects under standardised conditions. Treatments were administered orally at weekly intervals according to a balanced design and under double-blind conditions. The tests of performance most(More)
Previous literature shows that operative laboratory performance can be significantly improved through leadup training where students complete simulated preparations in plastic blocks. Since the task requirements of most fixed prosthodontic preparations seem similar to those of operative dentistry, it may be hypothesized that leadup training utilizing(More)
