  • Approaches to implementing a strengthened global response to the threat of climate change 

    Hayward BM; Roy J (IPCC, 2018)
    The principal rationale for this chapter is to gather and assess the best available policy relevant knowledge from the available literature, including existing options and case studies, on what is known about the methods ...
  • Using Role-Play to Improve Students’ Confidence and Perceptions of Communication in a Simulated Volcanic Crisis 

    Brogt, E; Wilson, T; Kennedy, B; Dohaney, Jacqueline (2017)
    Traditional teaching of volcanic science typically emphasises scientific principles and tends to omit the key roles, responsibilities, protocols, and communication needs that accompany volcanic crises. This chapter provides ...
  • What the applicability of mathematics says about its philosophy 

    Wilson PL (Springer, 2018)
    We use mathematics to understand the world. This fact lies behind all of modern science and technology. Mathematics is the tool used by physicists, engineers, biologists, neuroscientists, chemists, astrophysicists and ...
  • The philosophy of applied mathematics 

    Wilson P (Oxford University Press, 2014)
  • Takitaki mai : a guide to motivational interviewing for Māori. 

    Britt, Eileen F.; Gregory, Daryl; Tohiariki, Tohi; Huriwai, Terry (Matua Rak̲i, The National Addiction Workforce Programme, 2014)
  • Cosmic structure, averaging and dark energy 

    Wiltshire, D.L. (Cambridge Scientific PublishersUniversity of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2014)
    These lecture notes review the theoretical problems associated with coarse-graining the observed inhomogeneous structure of the universe at late epochs, of describing average cosmic evolution in the presence of growing ...
  • Co-opting the Global Health Agenda: The Problematic Role of Partnerships and Foundations in Defining Priorities 

    Faubion, C.T.; Paige, S.B.; Pearson, A.L. (Palgrave MacmillanUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2011)

  • Evaporation and the water balance 

    Kelliher, Francis M.; Jackson, R. (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    In New Zealand most water reaches the land surface as rain. Some rain evaporates after being caught on the surfaces of plants (a process called interception), but the rest reaches the ground and usually soaks into the ...
  • Denudation, weathering, and slope development 

    Fitzsimons, Sean (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    The rock formation and deformation processes described in Chapters 2 and 3 can be described as endogenic because they originate from within the Earth. When rocks are exposed at the Earth's surface by uplift and erosion, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Soil formation processes 

    Morgan, Richard (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Soil is a fascinating and often overlooked (figuratively but also literally in many instances) component of the landscape. Apart from its intrinsic value and interest as part of the natural environment, soil also plays ...
  • Interactions within the physical environment 

    Holland, Peter (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Formal research in physical geography began with programmes of detailed observation in small areas. Over time the results were collated and generalised to ever-larger scales, culminating in such seminal work as Davis's ...
  • Global energy and climate processes 

    Fitzharris, Blair (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    The global climate system is driven by energy, almost all of which comes from the Sun. In this chapter, variations in the Sun-Earth relationship, which create spatial and temporal variations in the receipt of solar ...
  • Animals in the physical environment 

    Harvey, Ed (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    'New Zealand is as close as we will get to the opportunity to study life on another planet.' (Diamond 1990) Although the physical environment has been described as a habitat template for animals (Southwood 1977 ), many ...
  • Volcanic landforms 

    Neall, Vince (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    Volcanic landforms are common features of the New Zealand environment. They originate by two major processes: first, by the eruption of various magmas onto the Earth's surface creating a wide array of landforms; and ...
  • The biosphere and the role of vegetation 

    Holland, Peter (Oxford University PressUniversity of Canterbury. Geography, 2001)
    'Vegetation' signifies palatable plants to a pastoral farmer, commercially important trees to a forester, diverse textures to an artist, and valued species to a conservationist. To a geographer, the vegetation cover of ...
