      Completing a PhD is difficult. Add a major earthquake sequence and general stress levels become much higher. Caring for some of the nonacademic needs of doctoral scholars in this environment becomes critical to their ...
    • Juxtaposing thematic regions derived from spatial and platial user-generated content 

      McKenzie G; Adams BT (Schloss Dagstuhl -- Leibniz-Zentrum fur Informatik, 2017)
      Typical approaches to defining regions, districts or neighborhoods within a city often focus on place instances of a similar type that are grouped together. For example, most cities have at least one bar district defined ...
    • Kaitiakitanga mō te kiekie – sustainable harvest Of Freycinetia Banksii 

      van Schravendijk, Cheri Johanna (University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2007)
      For generations, the harvest of native flora and fauna by Māori was guided by tikanga. In the art of weaving, the sustainability of the culture was greatly dependant on the careful practice of harvest to ensure the ...
    • The Kakanui hydrothermal system. 

      Mellis, Richard Alexander (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      Potential hydrothermal deposits were recognised within the late-Eocene to early-Oligocene volcanic tuff and overlying volcaniclastic grit at Kakanui South Head, Oamaru, New Zealand. The deposits included discrete pink ...
    • Kaluza Klein Dark Matter Analysis with the AMANDA Neutrino Telescope 

      Han, Kahae (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2010)
      In this work the search for the dark matter arising from a model of extra dimensions, otherwise known as Kaluza Klein WIMPs, on the data taken with the AMANDA neutrino telescope in the South Pole is presented. The limit ...
    • 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 ...
    • Keto acid phosphoranes: structure, synthesis, and bromolactonisation 

      Trent, John O. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1992)
      This thesis examines the structure, synthesis, and bromolactonisation of keto acid phosphoranes. Chapter One discusses the structure and the intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonding preferences of a number of keto acid ...
    • Killing Begets Killing: Evidence From a Bug-Killing Paradigm That Initial Killing Fuels Subsequent Killing 

      Martens, A.; Kosloff, S.; Greenberg, J.; Landau, M.J.; Schmader, T. (University of Canterbury. Psychology., 2007)
      Killing appears to perpetuate itself even in the absence of retaliation. This phenomenon may occur in part as a means to justify prior killing and so ease the threat of prior killing. In addition, this effect should arise ...
