  1. 1. Travelling through time : Students’ interpretation of evolutionary time in dynamic visualizations

    Author : Jörgen Stenlund; Lena Tibell; Konrad Schönborn; Niklas Gericke; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Evolution; visualization; time; learning; threshold; zooming;

    Abstract : Evolutionary knowledge is important to understand and address contemporary challenges such as loss of biodiversity, climate change and antibiotic resistance. An important aspect that is considered to be a threshold concept in teaching and learning about evolution is the time it involves. READ MORE

  2. 2. Occupying Time : Design, Time, and the Form of Interaction

    Author : Ramia Mazé; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Design; Architecture;

    Abstract : As technology pervades our everyday life and material culture, new possibilities and problematics are raised for design. Attention in contemporary design discourse is shifting ‘beyond the object’, to the qualities of processes and experiences. READ MORE

  3. 3. Real-Time Time Metrology Using Space Geodetic Methods

    Author : Carsten Rieck; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : VLBI; Time metrology; UTC; TAI; time link combination; carrier phase; time transfer; real-time filtering; GNSS;

    Abstract : Two main objectives in time and frequency metrology are the realization of the SI unit of time, and the construction and dissemination of atomic time scales based on the SI second. This thesis is mainly concerned with the latter of the two and has investigated the characteristics of space geodetic time and frequency comparison methods. READ MORE

  4. 4. Multiple Time Scales and Longitudinal Measurements in Event History Analysis

    Author : Danardono; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistics; Cox regression; multiple events; proportiona hazards; random effects; survival analysis; time-dependent covariates; time origin; Statistik; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : A general time-to-event data analysis known as event history analysis is considered. The focus is on the analysis of time-to-event data using Cox's regression model when the time to the event may be measured from different origins giving several observable time scales and when longitudinal measurements are involved.

  5. 5. Solute Transport Across Scales : Time Series Analyses of Water Quality Responses to Quantify Retention and Attenuation Mechanisms in Watersheds

    Author : Joakim Riml; Anders Wörman; Aaron I. Packman; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Solute transport modeling; Transient storage; Tracer test; Central temporal moments; Spectral analysis; Parameterization;

    Abstract : The intra-continental movement of waterborne contaminants is governed by the distribution of solute load in the landscape along with the characteristics and distribution of the hydrological pathways that transport the solutes. An understanding of the processes affecting the transport and fate of the contaminants is crucial for assessments of solute concentrations and their environmental effect on downstream recipients.
