ERA is a digital repository of original research produced at The University of Edinburgh. The archive contains documents written by, or affiliated with, academic authors, or units, based at Edinburgh that have sufficient quality to be collected and preserved by the Library, but which are not controlled by commercial publishers. Holdings include full-text digital doctoral theses, masters dissertations, project reports, briefing papers and out-of-print materials.

Information on current research activity including staff, projects and publications is available via the Edinburgh Research Explorer.


  • Effect of context on the activation and processing of word meaning over time 

    Frassinelli, Diego (The University of Edinburgh, 2015-06-29)
    The aim of this thesis is to study the effect that linguistic context exerts on the activation and processing of word meaning over time. Previous studies have demonstrated that a biasing context makes it possible to ...
  • Interpretation of observed atmospheric variations of CO2 and CH4. 

    Barlow, James Mathew (The University of Edinburgh, 2015-06-30)
    The overarching theme of my thesis is understanding observed variations of northern hemisphere atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) concentrations. I focus my analysis on high-latitude observations of these ...
  • Seismic interferometry and non-linear tomography 

    Galetti, Erica (The University of Edinburgh, 2015-06-30)
    Seismic records contain information that allows geoscientists to make inferences about the structure and properties of the Earth’s interior. Traditionally, seismic imaging and tomography methods require wavefields to be ...
  • Wireless Communication Systems Based on Spatial Modulation MIMO 

    Wu, Xiping (The University of Edinburgh, 2015)
    Spatial modulation (SM) is a unique single-stream, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission technique. Unlike traditional MIMO schemes, SM sends out signals through a single active antenna, and achieves ...
  • Methods for Bayesian inversion of seismic data 

    Walker, Matthew James (The University of Edinburgh, 2015-06-30)
    The purpose of Bayesian seismic inversion is to combine information derived from seismic data and prior geological knowledge to determine a posterior probability distribution over parameters describing the elastic and ...
