ARAN is the digital collection of open access scholarly publications from NUI Galway. ARAN collects, preserves and makes freely available scholarly communication, including peer-reviewed articles, working papers and conference papers created by NUI Galway researchers. Where material has already been published it is made available subject to the open-access policies of the original publishers.


Open Access to Research Outputs

NUI Galway’s policy on Open Access to Research Outputs, adopted by the Academic Council in October 2015, aims to promote open access to the University’s publications. Authors of peer-reviewed articles and peer-reviewed conference papers resulting from research carried out at NUI Galway must deposit a copy in the ARAN (Access to Research at NUI Galway) repository. ARAN enables easy discovery of publications through global search engines such as Google and complements IRIS by linking from author profiles to the full text of University publications. See Help for information on how to submit your publications to ARAN.

  • Mechanisms of flooding in Cork City 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Comer, Joanne; Nash, Stephen; Hartnett, Michael (International Association of Hydrological Sciences, 2015-11-17)
    Flooding is one of the most frequent and devastating natural disasters. Many urban developments are located in estuaries where river flow and sea water merge. Cork City situated in the River Lee estuary frequently subject ...
  • A clinical evaluation of remote ischaemic preconditioning for organ protection 

    Healy, Donagh (2016-05-24)
    Periprocedural complications are an issue for patients with cardiovascular disease. Remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) may offer periprocedural organ protection. Although the proof of concept data underpinning RIPC ...
  • Parameterization of turbulence models using 3DVAR data 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Nash, Stephen; Hartnett, Michael (City University of New York, 2014-01-08)
    In this research the 3DVAR data assimilation scheme is implemented in the numerical model DIVAST in order to optimize the performance of the numerical model by selecting an appropriate turbulence scheme and tuning its ...
  • In vivo correlation mapping microscopy 

    McGrath, James; Alexandrov, Sergey; Owens, Peter; Subhash, Hrebesh; Leahy, Martin (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2016-03)
    To facilitate regular assessment of the microcirculation in vivo, noninvasive imaging techniques such as nailfold capillaroscopy are required in clinics. Recently, a correlation mapping technique has been applied to optical ...
  • Turbulence modelling using 3DVAR data assimilation in laboratory conditions 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Nash, Stephen; Hartnett, Michael (2013)
    The viability of turbulence parameter estimation in a numerical model using 3DVAR data assimilation technique is explored in this research. Water currents measured in a physical model are assimilated into the numerical ...
