(IOP Publishing, 2020)We wish to correct the definition of the comoving target photon energy density in Section 4 of the published article
Search for dark matter signals towards a selection of recently detected DES dwarf galaxy satellites of the Milky Way with HESS (APS, 2020)Dwarf spheroidal galaxy satellites of the Milky Way are prime targets for indirect detection of dark matter with gamma rays due to their proximity, high dark matter content, and absence of nonthermal emission processes. ...
Microbial communities in field-scale oil-polluted soil remediation using 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing (Taylor & Francis, 2020)This investigation employed 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing to understand microbial dynamics during a 2-month field-scale oil-impacted soil remediation in the Niger Delta. Surface soil (0.0–0.5 m) had extractable total petroleum ...
Soil-texture affects the influence of termite macropores on soil water infiltration in a semi-arid savanna (Wiley, 2020)Subterranean termites create tunnels (macropores) for foraging that can influence water infiltration and may lead to preferential flow to deeper soil layers. This is particularly important in water limited ecosystems such ...
From Kant’s critique of pure reason, to action research in improving the programming skills of students (Springer, 2020)Action research (AR) is often used when doing research about social phenomena in the real-world, when change is part of the researcher’s intention. The researcher participates in the research environment with the intention ...
