    Impact of individual atmospheric parameters on CPV system power, energy yield and cost of energy

    , Progress in Photovoltaics, Vol: 22, Pages: 1080-1095, ISSN: 1099-159X

    The performance of concentrator photovoltaic systems can be characterised by the power output under reference conditions and the output energy yield under realistic solar illumination. For a range of locations, the frequency distribution of individual atmospheric parameters and their quantitative impact on power output of a concentrator photovoltaic system have been evaluated, with aerosols shown to have a substantial impact on performance at many sites. Limited knowledge of atmospheric parameters results in a difference of up to 75% in simulated energy yield over an annual period and up to 75% deviation in the expected levelised cost of energy.

    From chemical risk assessment to environmental resources management: the challenge for mining.

    , Environ Sci Pollut Res

    On top of significant improvements and progress made through science and engineering in the last century to increase efficiency and reduce impacts of mining to the environment, risk assessment has an important role to play in further reducing such impacts and preventing and mitigating risks. This paper reflects on how risk assessment can improve planning, monitoring and management in mining and mineral processing operations focusing on the importance of better understanding source-pathway-receptor linkages for all stages of mining. However, in light of the ever-growing consumption and demand for raw materials from mining, the need to manage environmental resources more sustainably is becoming increasingly important. The paper therefore assesses how mining can form an integral part of wider sustainable resources management, with the need for re-assessing the potential of mining in the context of sustainable management of natural capital, and with a renewed focus on its the role from a systems perspective. The need for understanding demand and pressure on resources, followed by appropriate pricing that is inclusive of all environmental costs, with new opportunities for mining in the wastes we generate, is also discussed. Findings demonstrate the need for a life cycle perspective in closing the loop between mining, production, consumption and waste generation as the way forward.

    A swing state theory of trade protection in the Electoral College

    , Canadian Journal of Economics, Vol: 46, Pages: 705-724

    This paper analyzes trade policy determination in the Electoral College in the presence of swing voters. It determines the circumstances under which incumbent politicians have an incentive to build a reputation for protectionism, thus swaying voting decisions and improving their reelection probability. Strategic trade protection is shown to be more likely when protectionist swing voters have a lead over free trade supporters in states with relatively strong electoral competition and in states representing a larger proportion of Electoral College votes. An empirical test using a measure of industrial concentration in swing and decisive U.S. states lends support to the theoretical findings.

    Data assimilation on the exponentially accurate slow manifold

    , Journal: Philosophical Transactions A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, Vol: 371

    I describe an approach to data assimilation making use of an explicit map that defines a coordinate system on the slow manifold in the semi-geostrophic scaling in Lagrangian coordinates, and apply the approach to a simple toy system that has previously been proposed as a low-dimensional model for the semi-geostrophic scaling. The method can be extended to Lagrangian particle methods such as Hamiltonian particle–mesh and smooth-particle hydrodynamics applied to the rotating shallow-water equations, and many of the properties will remain for more general Eulerian methods. Making use of Hamiltonian normal-form theory, it has previously been shown that, if initial conditions for the system are chosen as image points of the map, then the fast components of the system have exponentially small magnitude for exponentially long times as ϵ→0, and this property is preserved if one uses a symplectic integrator for the numerical time stepping. The map may then be used to parametrize initial conditions near the slow manifold, allowing data assimilation to be performed without introducing any fast degrees of motion (more generally, the precise amount of fast motion can be selected).

    Smouldering Fires and Natural Fuels

    , Fire Phenomena and the Earth System: An Interdisciplinary Guide to Fire Science, Pages: 15-33, ISBN: 9780470657485

    This chapter argues that smouldering combustion leads to megafires as measured in terms of the total organic material consumed. The chapter reviews the current knowledge on smouldering fires in the Earth system regarding combustion dynamics and chemistry, while highlighting differences with flaming fires. It shows that smouldering combustion of natural ground fuels, like peatlands, leads to the largest and longest burning fires on Earth, and shows that they create a positive feedback mechanism to climate change. It is therefore absolutely crucial for us to expand our limited knowledge of not only flaming, but also particularly of smouldering fires. Flaming wildfires have received much more attention than smouldering fires hitherto; this chapter aims at reversing that trend and contributing new forward-looking ideas to the important study of flameless fires. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
