Doing Q Methodological Research - Theory, Method & Interpretation (Paperback): Simon Watts, Paul Stenner Doing Q Methodological Research - Theory, Method & Interpretation (Paperback)
Simon Watts, Paul Stenner
R805 Discovery Miles 8 050 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book is a simple yet thorough introduction to Q methodology, a research technique designed to capture the subjective or first-person viewpoints of its participants. Watts and Stenner outline the key theoretical concepts developed by William Stephenson, the founder of Q methodology, including subjectivity, concourse theory and abduction. They then turn to the practicalities of delivering high quality Q methodological research. Using worked examples throughout, the reader is guided through: * important design issues * the conduct of fieldwork * all the analytic processes of Q methodology, including factor extraction, factor rotation and factor interpretation. Drawing on helpful conceptual introductions to potentially difficult statistical concepts and a step-by-step guide to running Q methodological analyses using dedicated software, this book enables interested readers to design, manage, analyse, interpret and publish their own Q methodological research.

The Ugly Animals - We Can't All be Pandas (Paperback): Simon Watt The Ugly Animals - We Can't All be Pandas (Paperback)

Mother Nature's more aesthetically challenged children have been neglected for too long. The plight of the panda is known the world over because of its teddy-like good looks, but most species are not so lucky. This book, however, aims to shine a light on some of the many ignored and unloved wonders of the animal kingdom. Their hideousness hides their incredible biology and means that we may not have noticed that they need our help. It is time to celebrate the Ugly Animals.

Airborne Maritime Surveillance Radar, Volume 2 - Post-war British ASV Radars 1946-2000 (Hardcover): Simon Watts Airborne Maritime Surveillance Radar, Volume 2 - Post-war British ASV Radars 1946-2000 (Hardcover)
Simon Watts
R1,403 Discovery Miles 14 030 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Today, air-to-surface vessel (ASV) radars, or more generally airborne maritime surveillance radars, are installed on maritime reconnaissance aircraft for long-range detection, tracking and classification of surface ships (ASuW-anti-surface warfare) and for hunting submarines (ASW-anti-submarine warfare). Such radars were first developed in the UK during WWII as part of the response to the threat to shipping from German U boats. This book describes the ASV radars developed in the UK and used by RAF Coastal Command during WWII for long-range maritime surveillance.

The second edition of "Sea Clutter: Scattering, the K Distribution and Radar Performance" gives an authoritative account of our current understanding of radar sea clutter. Topics covered include the characteristics of radar sea clutter, modelling radar scattering by the ocean surface, statistical models of sea clutter, the simulation of clutter and other random processes, detection of small targets in sea clutter, imaging ocean surface features, radar detection performance calculations, CFAR detection, and the specification and measurement of radar performance. The calculation of the performance of practical radar systems is presented in sufficient detail for the reader to be able to tackle related problems with confidence. For this fully revised and updated second edition new material has been added on the Doppler characteristics of sea clutter and associated detection processing methods, bistatic sea clutter measurements; electromagnetic scattering theory of littoral sea clutter and bistatic sea clutter; the use of models for predicting radar performance, including discussion of Lognormal and Weibull models; further results and extended discussion on the modelling of the K distribution shape parameter for different conditions; the simulation of Doppler spectra of sea clutter; high grazing angle scattering; and the use of the K distribution in other fields. The material has been reorganized into four parts: Sea Clutter Properties, Mathematics of the K distribution, Radar Detection and Physical Modelling. This reorganization allows readers to access specific areas quickly, without the need for an extensive knowledge of the other parts.
