Presence, Fate, and Behaviour of Emerging Micropollutants in the New Zealand and Antarctic Coastal Environment
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 2013)
Many chemicals used in everyday personal care products are today amongst the most commonly detected compounds in surface waters throughout the world. Collectively referred to as micropollutants, they include paraben ...
Predictive inference comprehension in adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI): The effects of salience and working memory
(University of Canterbury. Department of Communication Disorders, 2011)
Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of salience on the comprehension of predictive inferences in adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI), by increasing the visual salience of the predictive ...

The effect of beta-alanine supplementation on aerobic and anaerobic capacity in trained cyclists
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2011)
Beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to increase skeletal muscle carnosine concentration resulting in the delay of neuromuscular fatigue and an increased aerobic and anaerobic capacity. The current study investigated ...
Studies of the meteorology and climatology of Ross Island and the Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2013)
This thesis documents a series of studies performed on the lower atmosphere over the region of the Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica, and its surroundings. In particular, much of the thesis focuses on the area in the vicinity of ...
A Taxonomic and Ecological Study of Periphytic Cyanobacteria in Kaituna River and Its Tributaries, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand.
(University of Canterbury. School of Biological Sciences, 2013)
Most of the detailed studies on periphyton in New Zealand rivers and streams have focused on diatoms. Despite the recent rise of interest in potentially toxic cyanobacterial mats, knowledge of the diversity and ecology ...
A Quaternary history of ice sheet dynamics in the Transantarctic Mountains.
(University of Canterbury. Department of Geological Sciences / Gateway Antarctica, 2013)
The Antarctic Ice Sheets responded significantly to climatic conditions during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and the subsequent warming that followed. Therefore, an understanding of how Antarctica reacted to past climates ...
Structure of benthic microbial mat assemblages in Lake Fryxell, Antarctica.
(University of Canterbury. Gateway Antarctica, 2013)
Microbial mats are important components of perennially ice-covered Antarctic lakes in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, where they often comprise the dominant biomass in this cold, shaded environment. These lakes represent some of ...
