Use of multi-proxy flood records to improve estimates of flood risk: Lower River Tay, Scotland (2006)
Journal Article
Werritty, A., Paine, J. L., Macdonald, N., Rowan, J. S., & McEwen, L. J. (2006). Use of multi-proxy flood records to improve estimates of flood risk: Lower River Tay, Scotland. CATENA, 66(1-2), 107-119. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.catena.2005.07.012

Proxy flood records from sediment stacks in floodplain palaeochannels provide an opportunity to extend short instrumental records and thus improve current estimates of flood risk. The 'Bloody Inches' (a meander cutoff on the lower River Tay, Scotland... Read More about Use of multi-proxy flood records to improve estimates of flood risk: Lower River Tay, Scotland.

Flood seasonality and generating conditions in the Tay catchment, Scotland from 1200 to present (2006)
Journal Article
McEwen, L. J. (2006). Flood seasonality and generating conditions in the Tay catchment, Scotland from 1200 to present. Area, 38(1), 47-64. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1475-4762.2006.00659.x

The new maximum recorded river flows in Scotland since 1988 have triggered widespread interest in whether floods are becoming more frequent and in the conditions that generate floods of different magnitudes and frequencies. There are questions about... Read More about Flood seasonality and generating conditions in the Tay catchment, Scotland from 1200 to present.

Historical and pooled flood frequency analysis for the River Tay at Perth, Scotland (2006)
Journal Article
Macdonald, N., Werritty, A., Black, A. R., & McEwen, L. J. (2006). Historical and pooled flood frequency analysis for the River Tay at Perth, Scotland. Area, 38(1), 34-46. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1475-4762.2006.00673.x

Improved estimates of UK flood risk during a period of increased climatic variability place challenges on existing methods that rely on short instrumental records. This paper examines the value of using historical data (both documentary and epigraphi... Read More about Historical and pooled flood frequency analysis for the River Tay at Perth, Scotland.

Co-learning: Re-linking research and teaching in geography (2006)
Journal Article
Le Heron, R., Baker, R., & McEwen, L. (2006). Co-learning: Re-linking research and teaching in geography. Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 30(1), 77-87. https://doi.org/10.1080/03098260500499659

What might geography in 'the universities' look like if geographers seriously confronted the growing dichotomy between research and teaching? This challenge goes to the heart of 'the university' as a site of learning. The authors argue that the globa... Read More about Co-learning: Re-linking research and teaching in geography.
