Ecological and biogeochemical processes in lakes are strongly dependent upon water temperature. Long-term surface warming of many lakes is unequivocal, but little is known about the comparative magnitude of temperature variation at diel timescales, due to a lack of appropriately resolved data. Here we quantify the pattern and magnitude of diel temperature(More)
Geographical location and landforms of various types have strong effects on the developments of many cities and associated street networks. This study presents new results of landform effects, in particular the geometry of shorelines, on the grid street networks (a total of 10,442 streets) of three Brazilian coastal cities. The results are compared with the(More)
This article analyses the morphological history of the outer Thames seabed, covering over 3,000 km2 from Aldeburgh (Suffolk), to Southend-on-Sea (Essex) and Margate (Kent). The region has been depicted on bathymetric charts since the sixteenth century, and has been formally charted since the eighteenth century. Charts published since the early 1800s(More)
Article history: Received 7 October 2016 Received in revised form 2 December 2016 Accepted 28 December 2016 Available online 12 January 2017 Shoreline change analysis is a well defined andwidely adopted approach for the examination of trends in coastal position over different timescales. Conventional shoreline changemetrics are best suited to resolving(More)
Coastal and shoreline management increasingly needs to consider morphological change occurring at decadal to centennial timescales, especially that related to climate change and AC C EP TE D M AN U SC R IP T ACCEPTED MANUSCRIPT 2 sea-level rise. This requires the development of morphological models operating at a mesoscale, defined by time and length scales(More)
Whilst understanding and predicting the effects of coastal change are primarily modelling problems, it is essential that we have appropriate conceptual frameworks for (1) the formalisation of existing knowledge; (2) the formulation of relevant scientific questions and management issues; (3) the implementation and deployment of predictive models; and (4)(More)
