    • Laboratory studies of excited atom reactions 

      Wauchop, T. S. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1969)
      Recent interest in electronically excited atoms and molecules has stemmed from a desire to know more about some species found in the upper atmosphere. This thesis reviews studies of two excited atoms O(¹D) and H(²P). ...
    • Labour turnover : The New Zealand Army Band, 1978 to 1988 

      Campbell, Irene (University of Canterbury. Psychology, 1988)
      The primary aim of this research was to determine why past members of the New Zealand Army Band had left the organisation over the last 10 years. The secondary purpose was to identify problem areas and sources of dissatisfaction ...
    • Laccases in higher plants 

      Harvey, Benjamin Manson (University of Canterbury. Biochemistry, 1997)
      The optimum method of screening for laccase in higher plant leaves was ascertained, and the method used to screen a number of plants. Four fruits from trees of the genus Prunus were also screened for laccase. A novel laccase ...
    • The lacustrine geomorphology of Lakes Manapouri and Te Anau. 

      Pickrill, R. A. (University of Canterbury. Geography, 1976)
      This thesis studies the lacustrine geomorphology of Lakes Manapouri and Te Anau. The shorelines of the two lakes are described and mapped. The type of shoreline produced is a product of the local geology and the effects ...
    • The Ladenburg rearrangement 

      Creamer, L. K. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1963)
      Ladenburg found that thermal decomposition of pyridine ethiodide led to both 2- and 4-ethylpyridine. Because no systematic study of this reaction had ever been reported, the present work was undertaken to explore the ...
    • Lahar initiation and sediment yield in the Pasig-Potrero River Basin, Mount Pinatubo, Philippines. 

      Tuñgol, Norman Manuel (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2002)
      A systemic basin-wide consideration of the complex interaction of many hydrogeomorphic and volcanic processes involved in lahar initiation emphasizes the role of rill erosion, both on tephra-covered hill slopes and on the ...
    • Land disposal of waste lubricating oil 

      Maunder, B. R. (University of Canterbury. Microbiology, 1981)
      Investigations to ascertain the factors and processes affecting the disappearance of waste lubricating oil from soil indicated that under field conditions at Timaru, New Zealand, waste lubricating oil applied at rates of ...
    • Land use planning and development suitability in Queenstown, New Zealand 

      Cunningham, Virginia (University of Canterbury. Geology, 1994)
      The demand for residential properties in Queenstown is high, but the demand is not matched by the availability of subdivided land and hence there is pressure to develop land which is less geotechnically suitable. It is ...
    • Landscape classification using GIS and national digital databases 

      Brabyn, Lars Kevin (University of Canterbury. Geography, 1996)
      This study considers whether visual landscape character can be classified using GIS. Landscape classification is needed to give landscape researchers and planners a frame of reference for communicating and comparing their ...
    • Landslide investigations, Main North Line Railway, South Island, New Zealand 

      Grocott, G. Guy (University of Canterbury. Engineering Geology, 1977)
      The most important section of railway in the South Island of New Zealand, the Main North Line, offers a continuous rail link serving the northern half of the South Island's east coast. The Main North Line, operated by the ...
    • A Landslide Risk Management Approach for the Stillwater to Ngakawau Rail Corridor (SNL96 to 126km) in the Lower Buller Gorge, New Zealand 

      Franklin, Kristel (University of Canterbury. Geologocial Sciences, 2012)
      This thesis has examined the 30km long rail corridor through the Lower Buller Gorge, on the Stillwater Ngakawau Line, between SNL96 and 126km, using a landslide risk management approach. The project area is characterised ...
    • The language status of young children with expressive language delay following verb-focussed vocabulary intervention. 

      Moore, Brooke Ataahua (University of Canterbury. Department of Communication Disorders, 2010)
      Young children with expressive language delay often present with limited vocabulary and reduced length of utterance. In consideration of the relationship between vocabulary and grammar, intervention that targets vocabulary ...
    • Large ring lasers: beyond the Macek and Davis experiment. 

      Anyi, Caroline Livan (University of Canterbury, 2019)
      Large-scale ring laser gyroscopes are highly sensitive rotation sensors whose operating principle is based upon the Sagnac effect. They are constructed for direct measurement of Earth rotation and offer applications in ...
    • Larval characteristics of some fishes from the East Coast of Southern New Zealand 

      Dolphin, Craig Heath (University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1997)
      The status of early life history descriptions for teleost fishes in New Zealand is low in comparison to other areas around the world. New Zealand itself is well-positioned to increase the number of teleost species that are ...
