Deep lime stabilisation applications for roading, East Coast, North Island, New Zealand.
(University of Canterbury. Department of Geological Sciences, 1991)
Acceleration and optical interferometry
(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1995)
The influence of acceleration on a number of physical systems is examined. We present a full relativistic treatment of a simple harmonic oscillator with relativistic velocities. The line element for Schwarzschild geometry ...
An engineering geological investigation into pit slope stability at Macraes Gold Mine, Macraes Flat, Otago, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Engineering Geology, 1998)
Macraes Gold Mine at Macraes Flat is located approximately 60km north-west of Dunedin, and is currently the largest producer of gold in New Zealand. Open-pit mining currently takes place in the three large pits of Round ...
Volcanology and geochemistry of the Kaingaroa Ignimbrite, Taupo Volcanic Zone, New Zealand.
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 1997)
The 0.23 Ma Kaingaroa Ignimbrite is a composite multiple flow-unit ignimbrite erupted from Reporoa Caldera, Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ), New Zealand. The Kaingaroa Ignimbrite has a complex internal stratigraphy with a ...
Solid state spectroscopy : laser selective excitation of holmium ions in crystalline solids
(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1992)
The technique of laser selective excitation has been used to study the spectra of 23 Ho³⁺centres present in CaF₂ and SrF₂ crystals, in mixed Ca₀.₉₉Sr₀.₀₁F₂ and Ca₀.₉₉Ba₀.₀₁F₂ crystals and in CsCdBr₃ crystals. The ...
Inter-relating characters in the evolution of jumping spider (Araneae, Salticidae) behaviour, with special reference to Trite planiceps Simon.
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1995)
Jumping spiders (Salticidae) differ from other spiders by having exceptionally acute vision and relying primarily on visual cues to mediate their behaviour. The unusual vision dependent behaviours of salticids have become ...
Speciation and measurement of aluminium in environmental systems.
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1999)
Aluminium speciation is of importance, as certain Al species are toxic to algae, fish and plants. The work within this thesis is directed towards the development and application of analytical methods to determine aluminium ...
Wood structure and coatings : an electron microscope study of Dacrydium cupressinum, Podocarpus dacrydioides and Pinus radiata weatherboard substrates
(University of Canterbury. Botany, 1990)
A scanning electron and transmission electron microscope study of wood substrate anatomy and ultrastructure, involving over one thousand micrographs, was made on weatherboards of two endemic timbers of New Zealand and ...
Wittgenstein and psychology: An exploration of creativity and madness through the investigation of sense and nonsense.
(University of Canterbury. Psychology, 1995)
The purpose of this thesis is to diagnose and cure some of the sources of conceptual confusion in psychology. Both the concepts of creativity and insanity are used as examples of areas of concern to psychologists. Wittgenstein ...
Studies in (S)-lysine biosynthesis via the diaminopimelate pathway
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1997)
The enzymes of the diaminopimelate (dap) pathway, which is responsible for the biosynthesis of (S)-lysine in plants and micro-organisms, are of interest as potential targets for herbicide and antibacterial research. This ...
