  • Takitaki mai : a guide to motivational interviewing for Māori. 

    Britt, Eileen F.; Gregory, Daryl; Tohiariki, Tohi; Huriwai, Terry (Matua Rak̲i, The National Addiction Workforce Programme, 2014)
  • Cosmic structure, averaging and dark energy 

    Wiltshire, D.L. (Cambridge Scientific PublishersUniversity of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2014)
    These lecture notes review the theoretical problems associated with coarse-graining the observed inhomogeneous structure of the universe at late epochs, of describing average cosmic evolution in the presence of growing ...
  • Co-opting the Global Health Agenda: The Problematic Role of Partnerships and Foundations in Defining Priorities 

    Faubion, C.T.; Paige, S.B.; Pearson, A.L. (Palgrave MacmillanUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2011)
    There is little dispute that the global health agenda is increasingly being shaped by foundations and partnerships, as the introduction to and rationale for this book make plain. In the wake of structural adjustment in the ...
  • Profiling Linguistic Disability 

    Crystal, David (Singular Publishing Group, 1992)
  • Grammatical Analysis of Language Disability - 2nd Edition 

    Crystal, David; Fletcher, Paul; Garman, Michael (Cole and Whurr, 1989)
    This series is the first to approach the problem of language disability as a single field. It attempts to bring together areas of study which have traditionally been treated under separate headings, and to focus on the ...
  • Working with LARSP 

    Crystal, David (Edward Arnold, 1979)
    This series is the first to approach the problem of language disability as a single field. It attempts to bring togeth,er areas of study which have traditionally been treated under separate headings, and to focus on the ...
  • Evaporation and the water balance 

    Kelliher, Francis M.; Jackson, R. (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    In New Zealand most water reaches the land surface as rain. Some rain evaporates after being caught on the surfaces of plants (a process called interception), but the rest reaches the ground and usually soaks into the ...
  • Denudation, weathering, and slope development 

    Fitzsimons, Sean (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    The rock formation and deformation processes described in Chapters 2 and 3 can be described as endogenic because they originate from within the Earth. When rocks are exposed at the Earth's surface by uplift and erosion, ...
  • Karst and solution processes 

    Williams, Paul (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Karst develops on rocks where solution (or corrosion, as it is sometimes called ) is the dominant landscape-forming process, even though the full suite of other geomorphic processes occurs. All rocks dissolve in natural ...
  • Soil formation processes 

    Morgan, Richard (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Soil is a fascinating and often overlooked (figuratively but also literally in many instances) component of the landscape. Apart from its intrinsic value and interest as part of the natural environment, soil also plays ...
  • Interactions within the physical environment 

    Holland, Peter (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Formal research in physical geography began with programmes of detailed observation in small areas. Over time the results were collated and generalised to ever-larger scales, culminating in such seminal work as Davis's ...
  • Global energy and climate processes 

    Fitzharris, Blair (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    The global climate system is driven by energy, almost all of which comes from the Sun. In this chapter, variations in the Sun-Earth relationship, which create spatial and temporal variations in the receipt of solar ...
  • Animals in the physical environment 

    Harvey, Ed (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    'New Zealand is as close as we will get to the opportunity to study life on another planet.' (Diamond 1990) Although the physical environment has been described as a habitat template for animals (Southwood 1977 ), many ...
  • Volcanic landforms 

    Neall, Vince (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Volcanic landforms are common features of the New Zealand environment. They originate by two major processes: first, by the eruption of various magmas onto the Earth's surface creating a wide array of landforms; and ...
  • The biosphere and the role of vegetation 

    Holland, Peter (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    'Vegetation' signifies palatable plants to a pastoral farmer, commercially important trees to a forester, diverse textures to an artist, and valued species to a conservationist. To a geographer, the vegetation cover of ...
  • Climate variation in New Zealand and the Southwest Pacific 

    Salinger, Jim (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Climate variation in the New Zealand and Southwest Pacific region is very much a subset of climate variation within the global climate system. The climate in any place over a particular time period is determined by ...
  • Aeolian processes and landforms 

    McGowan, Hamish (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Aeolian processes play an integral role in the evolution of our landscape through the entrainment, transportation, and deposition of fine grained sediments by the wind. They may be triggered by both natural and human-induced ...
  • Water transport processes 

    McConchie, Jack (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    It is estimated that the total annual discharge of New Zealand rivers is approximately 300 km3, and that another 50 km3 of water is 'stored' in perennial snow and glacier ice (see Chapter 9). This running water is of ...
  • Oceans and their circulation 

    Bury, Sarah (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    A knowledge of the key water masses and currents that affect New Zealand is invaluable to understanding near-shore and coastal processes, and the chemistry and biology of oceanic and coastal waters. This chapter introduces ...
  • The geomorphological role of rivers 

    Heerdegen, Richard (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Rivers are rather like the high-voltage transmission lines that cross the landscape. Just as power lines transport the energy produced at power stations, which is then transformed into work by its use, so too are rivers ...
