“Towards a Feminist Geopolitics”
The intersections and conversations between feminist geography and political geography have been surprisingly few. The notion of a feminist geopolitics remains undeveloped in geography. This paper aims to create a theoretical ...
“Terror, Territory, and Deterritorialization: Landscapes of Terror and the Unmaking of State Power in the Mozambican ‘Civil’ War”
(Taylor and Francis, 2009)
During the Mozambican "civil" war, residents across large areas of the countryside were terrorized out of their villages by the South African-backed Mozambican rebel organization Renamo. Drawing on the deterritorialization ...
Accuracy Improvement of Terrestrial Mobile Lidar System in Engineering Surveys
In this thesis, a number of effective algorithms and strategies were developed to improve the accuracy of terrestrial mobile LiDAR solutions in the field of engineering surveys. A detailed analysis for error budget of the ...
Hybrid Electric Propulsion Using Gas Mixtures
Hybrid electric propulsion is a new technology that combines electrostatic and electromagnetic propulsions. The goal of this engineering study is to design a hybrid electric propulsion system that can provide a specific ...
Exploring Hyperspectral and Very High Spatial Resolution Imagery in Vegetation Characterization
This dissertation describes three contributions in the characterization of vegetation canopies using remote sensing data, with a focus on hyperspectral and very high spatial resolution imagery. The new and innovative methods ...
Single Tree Detection from Airborne Laser Scanning Data: A Stochastic Approach
Characterizing and monitoring forests are of great scientific and managerial interests, such as understanding the global carbon circle, biodiversity conservation and management of natural resources. As an alternative or ...
Effective Broadband Permittivity Measurements of Geological Materials
It is a commonly held belief that broadband permittivity measurement techniques have great uncertainties in dielectric loss for low-loss materials, which is unfavourable for applications in planetary and asteroid radar ...
Multi-GNSS Precise Point Positioning Software Architecture and Analysis of GLONASS Pseudorange Biases
With expanding satellite-based navigation systems, multi-Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Precise Point Positioning (PPP) presents an advantage over a single navigation system, which improves position accuracy and ...
Impact of Turbulence on Hurricane Intensity Forecast
Hurricane intensity prediction and track forecasts are very sensitive to tur- bulence within the Hurricane Boundary Layer (HBL). In the Advanced Research Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF-ARW) model the effect of the ...
FPGA-Based Software GNSS Receiver Design for Satellite Applications
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver technology has tremendous scope for satellite applications such as radio occultation, precise orbit determination and reflectometry. Spaceborne GNSS receivers are characterised ...
Dynamic Modeling and Control System Design for Shape Memory Alloy Actuators
Shape memory alloy (SMA) is a type of smart material which remembers its original state. It is light weight and small, and known to provide high contraction force with low noise. Its application has wide range from robotics ...
Across Borders: Diverse Perspectives on Mexico
