Abstract Convective cloud fields are populations of evolving objects, interacting with their environment but also with each other. Such population-internal dynamics can play a key role in the immediate response of a convective cloud field to an external forcing, and its subsequent interaction with the larger-scale flow and climate. Population-internal dynamical feedbacks have been identified…
Abstract The Brundtland Report, which has its 30th anniversary this year, defines sustainable development as meeting ‘the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’. But what resources that are needed to meet those needs?  Can they be claimed and controlled by the people who need them? …
Abstract UEA has developed an analytical system based around Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry to measure individual isoprene derived nitrates (Bew et al, 2016; Mills et al, 2016). This was deployed in the field for the first time in Beijing as part of the AIRPRO project (An Integrated Study of AIR Pollution PROcesses in Beijing)…
