      The objective was to characterize water quality for a section of the Grijalva River and its tributaries, for rainy and dry season in the border of the States of Chiapas and Tabasco. 23 physical, chemical, and microbiolo ...
    • A water quality study of Barkers Creek, South Canterbury. 

      Graham, H. J. (University of Canterbury, 2019)
      Diffuse nitrogen and phosphorus pollution from farming practices is a water resource management issue throughout New Zealand. Efficient management of diffuse pollutants requires a conceptual understanding of the relationship ...
    • Water resource use : a matter of perspective : a case study of the Kaituna River claim, Waitangi Tribunal. 

      Fraser, Timothy William (University of Canterbury, 1988)
      The thesis investigates how a Pakeha cultural perspective came to dominate water resource use and management to the exclusion of Maori spiritual and cultural values. This thesis examines through a case study of the Kaituna ...
    • The water resources of the Waipara catchment and their management 

      Lloyd, Ian (University of Canterbury. Environmental Science, 2002)
      The Waipara catchment, North Canterbury, New Zealand is currently experiencing rapid intensification in land use from pastoral farming to viticultural, horticultural and lifestyle activities. This intensification has lead ...
    • The water soluble carbohydrates of Pinus radiata : identification and quantitation 

      Paterson, A. J. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1975)
      A wide range of techniques have been used in the analysis of carbohydrates from plant sources. Many of these techniques are fraught with difficulties and are not at all suitable for routine analytical procedures. A joint ...
    • Water transport processes 

      McConchie, Jack (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
      It is estimated that the total annual discharge of New Zealand rivers is approximately 300 km3, and that another 50 km3 of water is 'stored' in perennial snow and glacier ice (see Chapter 9). This running water is of ...
    • Waterfowl management in North Canterbury, New Zealand 

      Meis, Teresa J. (University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1988)
