20,000 years of societal vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in southwest Asia (2019)
Journal Article
Jones, M., Abu-Jaber, N., AlShdaifat, A., Baird, D., Cook, B. I., Cuthbert, M. O., …Weeks, L. (2019). 20,000 years of societal vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in southwest Asia. Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Water, 6(2), doi:10.1002/wat2.1330

The Fertile Crescent, its hilly flanks and surrounding drylands has been a critical region for studying how climate has influenced societal change, and this review focuses on the region over the last 20,000 years. The complex social, economic and env... Read More about 20,000 years of societal vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in southwest Asia.

Nuclear weapons fallout 137Cs in temperate and tropical pine forest soils, 50 years post-deposition (2019)
Journal Article
Itthipoonthanakorn, T., Dann, S., Crout, N., & Shaw, G. (2019). Nuclear weapons fallout 137Cs in temperate and tropical pine forest soils, 50 years post-deposition. Science of the Total Environment, 660, 807-816. doi:10.1016/j.scitotenv.2019.01.073

Following nuclear releases to the environment, 137Cs (half-life 30 years) is a long-term contaminant of many ecosystems, including forests. We recently sampled soils under pine forests in temperate and tropical climates to test the hypothesis that mi...

Methane transport through an agricultural soil following pulse injection of isotopically-enriched methane in the sub-surface (2018)
Dataset
SHAW, G., Atkinson, B., Meredith, W., Snape, C., Lever, D., & Hoch, A. (2018). Methane transport through an agricultural soil following pulse injection of isotopically-enriched methane in the sub-surface. [Dataset]

Data comprise methane and carbon dioxide concentrations in soil following injection of discrete pulses of methane into subsoil (50 cm depth) below a spring wheat crop during the growing season. Supporting data on soil moisture, soil temperature and... Read More about Methane transport through an agricultural soil following pulse injection of isotopically-enriched methane in the sub-surface.
