    • A landscape approach to assess impacts of hydrological changes to vegetation communities of the Tonle Sap Floodplain 

      Arias, M.E.; Cochrane, T.A.; Caruso, B.; Killeen, T.; Kummu, M. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)
      The Tonle Sap is South East Asia’s largest lake and Cambodia’s most important fishery. The hydrology of the Tonle Sap is directly linked to water levels of the Mekong River, which will experience major alterations as a ...
    • The landscape record of blind fault earthquakes 

      Quigley, M.; Mackay, B.; Bradley, B.A.; Hughes, M.; Bastin, S. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2014)
      Active faults capable of generating highly damaging earthquakes may not cause surface rupture (i.e., blind faults) or cause surface ruptures that evade detection due to subsequent burial or er ...
    • Lapses in Responsiveness: Characteristics and Detection from the EEG 

      Peiris, Malik Tivanka Rajiv (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2008)
      Performance lapses in occupations where public safety is paramount can have disastrous consequences, resulting in accidents with multiple fatalities. Drowsy individuals performing an active task, like driving, often cycle ...
    • Large deformation properties of reconstituted Christchurch sand subjected to undrained cyclic torsional simple shear loading 

      Chiaro, G.; Kiyota, T.; Miyamoto, H. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2015)
      Severe liquefaction was repeatedly observed during the 2010 - 2011 C hristchurch earthquake s , particularly affecting deposits of fine sands and silty sands of recent fluvial or estuarine origin. The effects ...
    • Large-Scale Deployment of Three Intelligent Web-Based Database Tutors 

      Mitrovic, A.; ICTG team (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2006)

    • Last word 

      Mason EG; Mason CE (2017)
      It was 2014 and we were debating whether or not purchasing credits as a speculative investment was hypocritical. There is a difference between making money and creating wealth, just as there is a difference between having ...
    • Lattice Codes and Generalized Minimum Distance Decoding for OFDM Systems
