    • Drivers of the tropospheric ozone budget throughout the 21st century under the medium-high climate scenario RCP 6.0 

      Revell LE; Tummon F; Stenke A; Sukhodolov T; Coulon A; Rozanov E; Garny H; Grewe V; Peter T (2015)
      Because tropospheric ozone is both a greenhouse gas and harmful air pollutant, it is important to understand how anthropogenic activities may influence its abundance and distribution through the 21st century. Here, we ...

      Watson, Janine Elizabeth (University of Canterbury. Psychology, 1986)
      This thesis is concerned with the application of the behavioural model of signal detection to the analysis of the effects of chlorpromazine (CPZ) and haloperidol on memory in pigeons. Memory is conceptualized as behaviour ...
    • A DTI-tractography study in pre-readers at risk for dyslexia 

      Vandermosten, M.; Vanderauwera, J.; Theys, C.; De Vos, A.; Vandervooren, S.; Sunaert, S.; Wouters, J.; Ghesquière, P. (University of Canterbury. Communication DisordersUniversity of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
      In adults and school-aged children, phonological aspects of reading seem to be sustained by left dorsal regions, while ventral regions seem to be involved in orthographic word recognition. Yet, given that the brain reorganises ...
    • Dual dopamine/serotonin treatment approach for addictive behaviour 

      Dassanayake, Ashlea Fiona (University of Canterbury. Department of Psychology, 2013)
      Illicit drug abuse and addiction is a major problem in New Zealand and worldwide with approximately 12% of illicit drug users classified as having drug dependence or drug-use disorders. The chronically relapsing nature of ...
    • Dual-response approach to work stress: An investigation of organisational stressors, individual moderators and wellbeing outcomes. 

      Walls, Frances Grace (University of Canterbury. Psychology, 2012)
      This study demonstrates the complex place stress has in the workplace by investigating both positive (eustress) and negative (distress) stress responses. An international sample of 140 individuals was recruited from various ...
    • Dual-Task Performance During Traverse Climbing: Human Factors Implications for Emergency-Response Organisations 

      Green, Alexander Louis (University of Canterbury. Psychology, 2012)
      Two experiments were conducted to investigate how performance on a primary rock climbing task is affected by the inclusion of a secondary word memory task. In Experiment 1, twelve experienced rock climbers completed a dual ...
    • Dual-Tasking and Multiple Resources: The Interference of Cognitive and Physical Demands in Real-World Applications 

      Epling, Samantha Lynn (University of Canterbury, 2017)
      Human Factors professionals regard Multiple Resource Theory (MRT) as a plausible explanation of the human cognitive processing system, but the theory lacks extensive testing with physical tasks. This is potentially a ...
    • Duration of Early Vocalisations 

      Gregory, A.M.; Tabain, M.; Robb, M.P. (University of Canterbury. Communication Disorders, 2013)
      The duration of three infants’ vocalisations were examined during a six-month longitudinal study. In contrast to most other infant research, this study included in its analysis all vocalisations including those deemed ...
    • Dust and gas in local galaxies in the equatorial H-ATLAS fields 

      De Vis, Pieter (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      One of the main challenges for extragalactic astronomy is to understand how the baryonic components of galaxies evolve from simple clouds of unenriched atomic gas into complex systems consisting of stars, dust, heavy ...
    • The dust budget crisis in high-redshift submillimetre galaxies 

      Rowlands, K.; Gomez, H.L.; Dunne, L.; Aragon-Salamanca, A.; Dye, S.; Maddox, S.; da Cunha, E.; van der Werf, P. (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2014)
      We apply a chemical evolution model to investigate the sources and evolution of dust in a sample of 26 high-redshift (z > 1) submillimetre galaxies (SMGs) from the literature, with complete photometry from ultraviolet ...
    • A dynamic assessment of single word learning in two year old late talkers. 

      Singer, Victoria Lena Ruth (University of Canterbury. Department of Communication Disorders, 2014)
      Purpose: Between 13% and 20% of two year olds are late to talk; of those, up to 25% are at risk of persistent language impairment. This highly exploratory study examined whether a dynamic assessment (DA) of single word ...
    • Dynamic energy budgets of the oyster Crassostrea gigas 

      Ren, Jeffrey Shengmin (University of Canterbury. Zoology, 2001)
      The Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas has become an important aquaculture species in New Zealand. As a consequence, increasing use has been made of sheltered coastal waters for oyster culture. A carrying capacity model is ...
    • Dynamic Processes in the Line Shift and Linewidth of CaF₂ and CsCdBr₃ Doped with Er³⁺ 

      Reynolds, Adrian John (University of Canterbury. Physics & Astronomy, 2012)
      The linewidths and line positions of 4I15/2 to 4I13/2 absorption transitions of trivalent erbium in CsCdBr₃ and CaF₂ were measured as a function of temperature from approximately 10 K to 300 K. By comparing the temperature ...
    • Dynamic risk factors and treatment change : exploring the mechanisms of sexual offending onset and desistance 

      Cording, Jacinta R. (University of Canterbury, 2018)
