    • Nitrogen in HSLA and dual phase steels 

      Ratnaraj, Ratnasabapathy (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1989)

    • No Cure for What Ails Us: The media-constructed disconnect between societal problems and possible solutions 

      Kenix, L.J. (University of Canterbury. Mass Communication and Journalism., 2004)
      This research examined the attributes of three social problems – pollution, poverty, and incarceration – in 300 news articles from 1995 to 2000. Content overwhelmingly indicated no specific cause, effect or responsible ...
    • No grey areas : a rural fundamentalist Christian perspective 

      Carr, Bridget (University of Canterbury. Religious Studies, 1992)
      An investigation into the operation of a small rural Fundamentalist Christian Fellowship is the subject of the following thesis. This field research was undertaken through observing the group for three months by attending ...
    • "No man but me" : Chaucer's Legend of good women and the ironic subversion of masculine representation. 

      Hayward, Rebecca Jane (University of Canterbury, 1993)
      In Chaucer's Legend of Good Women, irony comes from both the narrator's perspective on the women he aims to represent in the legends, and from the author's and reader's perspectives on the narrator as a constructed ...
    • No robust evidence of future changes in major stratospheric sudden warmings: a multi-model assessment from CCMI 

      Ayarzaguena B; Polvani LM; Langematz U; Akiyoshi H; Bekki S; Butchart N; Dameris M; Deushi M; Hardiman SC; Jockel P; Klekociuk A; Marchand M; Michou M; Morgenstern O; O'Connor F; Oman LD; Plummer DA; Revell LE; Rozanov E; Saint-Martin D; Scinocca J; Stenke A; Stone K; Yamashita Y; Yoshida K; Zeng G (2018)
      Major mid-winter stratospheric sudden warmings (SSWs) are the largest instance of wintertime variability in the Arctic stratosphere. Because SSWs are able to cause significant surface weather anomalies on intra-season ...
    • No scientific consensus on GMO safety 

      Hilbeck, A.; Binimelis, R.; Defarge, N.; Steinbrecher, R.; Székács, A.; Wickson, F.; Antoniou, M.; Bereano, P.L.; Clark, E.A.; Hansen, M.; Novotny, E.; Jack Heinemann, J.; Meyer, H, Shiva, V.; Wynne, B. (University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2015)
