Climate change in northwest China over the past millennium
Around half of the world’s population lives under the influence of the Asian monsoons. The sustainability of water resources, which is intimately tied up with future monsoon variability, is a critically-important issue in northwest China where development is taking place at the margins of agricultural productivity and towards the fringe of the landward penetration of summer monsoon rainfall. Understanding the likely future behaviour of the Asian monsoons is therefore critical for the people of
War, peace & political thought
As taught Spring Semester 2011. This is an advanced module in the history of international political thought for MA students. It is structured in two parts. The first, comprising sessions 2-7, is concerned with an approach to the history of international theory, influential in the field, which insists on placing theorists in one of three ‘traditions’. We interrogate the integrity of these traditions, in each case, by analysing the work of at least two writers who are said to belong squarely

Concrete Continuum: Concept, Calculus, & Construction Connected Through Parametric Representation
This paper outlines a custom-built suite of scripts that automate?the processes of reinforced concrete design and is directly linked to the parametric?design model of the architect. The workflow creates a design and engineering feedback loop for early phase schematic design. Using this system, the design geometry is generated?and then deconstructed into a Finite Element model.?The workflow executes a static analysis then calculates rebar size and placement, and finally generates fabrication draw
