Geophysical imaging of subsurface earthquake-induced liquefaction features at Christchurch Boys High School, Christchurch, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2013)
On February 22, 2011, a magnitude Mw 6.2 earthquake affected the Canterbury region, New Zealand, resulting in many fatalities. Liquefaction occurred across many areas, visible on the surface as ‘‘sand volcanoes’’, blisters ...
Ground motion input for NLRHA: practical limitations of NZS 1170.5 and comparison to US standards
Nonlinear response history analysis (NLRHA), or so-called “nonlinear time history analysis”, is adopted by practicing structural engineers who implement performance-based seismic design and/or assessment procedures. One ...
Coastal Quakes: Observations and analyses from backyard Christchurch to 21st century coastal megacities
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2013)
Anyone keeping a global tally of recent disasters is likely to be asking: What role will the hazards and disasters of coastal plains play in the lives and economies of 21st century humanity? In this article, we reflect ...
Reducing beam hardening effects and metal artefacts using Medipix3RX: With applications from biomaterial science
(University of Canterbury. Biological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology LaboratoryUniversity of Canterbury. Mathematics and StatisticsUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Physics and AstronomyUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2014)
This paper discusses methods for reducing beam hardening effects using spectral data for biomaterial applications. A small-animal spectral scanner operating in the diagnostic energy range was used. We investigate the use ...

(Third World NetworkUniversity of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2010)
I am submitting to the Philippines Government this opinion on the testing of Bt brinjal conducted in India because I understand that the Philippines is currently evaluating a Bt brinjal event for commercial release and ...
Medipix-based Spectral Micro-CT?
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2012)
Since Hounsfield’s Nobel Prize winning breakthrough decades ago, x-ray CT has been widely applied in the clinical and preclinical applications - producing a huge number of tomographic gray-scale images. However, these ...
What are the needs of potential bicycle users?

Appearances can be deceptive: Revealing a hidden viral infection with deep sequencing in a plant quarantine context
(University of Canterbury. Biological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2014)
Comprehensive inventories of plant viral diversity are essential for effective quarantine and sanitation efforts. The safety of regulated plant material exchanges presently relies heavily on techniques such as PCR or ...
