      The increasing demand for water in the Canterbury region, and the realisation that spring flow plays an important role in many wetland and river systems, requires methods for predicting changes in spring behaviour as ...
    • The hydrogeology of the Cheviot Region, North Canterbury, New Zealand 

      Lawler, Mark E. (University of Canterbury. Geology, 1988)
      In 1967 a pump station was installed on a bore in the north west portion of the Spotswood Plains, and although it has provided an adequate supply to the farms and main township of the region, Cheviot, the water supply has ...
    • Hydrogeology of the Cromwell Terrace Aquifer, Central Otago 

      Nicol, Ryan Charles Smith (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2011)
      A hydrogeologic model, groundwater chemistry and stable isotopic analysis were used to establish recharge resources and outflows so a water balance could be developed for the Cromwell Terrace Aquifer (CTA) in Central Otago, ...
    • The hydrogeology of the Diamond Harbour region, Banks Peninsula 

      Parker, S. K. (University of Canterbury. Geology, 1989)
      The study area comprises an area of about 40 km2 and includes the township of Diamond Harbour located on the sourthern side of Lyttelton Harbour. The area is broken up into two valley systems (Orton Bradley and Purau ...
    • Hydrogeology of the Hinds Rangitata Plain, and the Impacts of the Mayfield-Hinds Irrigation Scheme 

      Dommisse, James (University of Canterbury. Environmental Science, 2006)
      The main aim of this research was to gain a better understanding of the surface and groundwater systems in order to sustainably manage the resource for both current and future generations. Three aquifers are present ...
    • Hydrogeology of the Mackenzie Basin 

      Cooksey, Kirsty (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2008)
      The intermontane Mackenzie Basin is located within the central South Island of New Zealand. The glacial basin contains three glacial lakes which are used for hydroelectric power generation via a canal system that links the ...
    • Hydrogeology of the Middle Sigatoka Valley, Southwest Viti Levu, Fiji. 

      Loco, Ratu Aminisitai (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2011)
      Bedrock geology of the middle Sigatoka valley, located ~ 20 km inland of the township of Sigatoka, southwest of Viti Levu, Fiji, includes the steeply inclined Tari Fomation and uplifted Qalimare Limestone of the Wainimala ...
    • Hydrogeology of the Takaka Valley 

      Edgar, Jane Elizabeth (University of Canterbury, 1998)
      The Takaka Valley, in Golden Bay, New Zealand, is renowned as the site of the freshwater spring system known as Waikoropupu Springs, and is also known for its marble karst aquifer. In this project the groundwater resources ...
