    Non Ban Jak is a large, moated site located in the upper Mun Valley, Northeast Thailand. Excavations over three seasons in 2011-4 have revealed a sequence of occupation that covers the final stage of the local Iron Age. ...
  • Talele, Sadhana (International Association of Technology, Education and Development (IATED), 2013)
    In this paper I summarize the various activities used in class room and laboratory teaching of first and second year engineering. These activities can be grouped under ‘active learning’. I describe the activities and the ...
  • Talele, Sadhana (2012)
    A number of bacteria, virus and other unhealthy cells need to be killed for getting rid of them. For more than a century antibiotics have been effectively used for killing bacterial pathogens and chemical drugs against the ...
  • Wyatt, Justin; Lowe, David J.; Moon, Vicki G.; Churchman, G.J. (ACMS, 2010)
    As part of a wider study examining the geomechanical properties, especially sensitivity, of sequences of Quaternary pyroclastic and associated deposits and buried soils in the landslide-prone western Bay of Plenty area ...
  • Waikato Geological Society (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    Coverpage and Contents from Volume 2, Number 1, 1968 of Earth Science Journal.
  • Pain, C.F.; Pullar, W.A. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    Air-borne volcanic ash beds are used to date fans and terraces in the Galatea Basin and to outline the depositional history of this part of the Rangitaiki Valley. The basin is interpreted as a fault-angle depression formed ...
  • Lowe, David J.; Nelson, Campbell S. (1983)
    The manual outlines some of the more common laboratory procedures available for qualitatively and quantitatively analysing the composition of the tephric clays, many of which are difficult to determine because of their ...
  • Waikato Geological Society (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Coverpage and Contents from Volume 5, Number 2, 1971 of Earth Science Journal.
  • Selby, Michael J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Notice from the Editor from Volume 5, Number 2, 1971 of Earth Science Journal.
  • Stokes, Evelyn (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Late seventeenth century ideas about volcanic activity were largely derived from classical sources. The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London provided a vehicle for publication of information about ...
  • Imeson, A.C. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Although sediment concentrations measured in two contrasting streams in East Yorkshire fluctuate in response to similar hydrological factors, the effectiveness of these factors reflects the environmental characteristics ...
  • Eyles, R.J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    In a random sample of 52 valley-side profiles at Tangoio, mass movements are shown to occur preferentially on profiles with a northerly aspect, which are long, or steeply sloping. Detailed measurements of 27 debris slide ...
  • Conacher, A.J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The vegetation cover of sand dunes and sandplain country in a part of Central Australia is aperiodically destroyed by fire, caused by lightning and Aboriginal activities. Subsequent mobilisation, transportation and ...
  • Bird, E.C.F. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Petrographic and granulometric analyses of North Queensland beach sediments indicate their affinity with sediments delivered to the coast by rivers, and it is shown that the beaches are largely derived from fluvial sediment ...
  • Selby, Michael J.; Pullar, W.A.; McCraw, J.D. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The Waihi Beach surfaces were originally mapped and correlated with European surfaces of similar altitude by Kear and Waterhouse (1961). Exposures along the edges of the surfaces indicate that they are covered with volcanic ...
  • Kear, David; Waterhouse, B.C. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The authors of the previous paper (Selby et al. 1971) kindly allowed us to see their manuscript, prior to publication. They have made a significant contribution to Bay of Plenty late Quaternary stratigraphy in recognising ...
  • Waikato Geological Society (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Book reviews and Book notice from Volume 5, Number 2, 1971 of Earth Science Journal.
  • Waikato Geological Society (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Coverpage and Contents from Volume 5, Number 1, 1971 of Earth Science Journal.
  • Cotton, C.A.; Wilson, A.T. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The frigid-arid climate that now prevails in ice-free parts of Victoria Land, Antarctica, inhibits glacial erosion. If certain landscapes, more or less remote from the great troughs of outlet glaciers, have been glaciated ...
  • Reynolds, S.G. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The problems and effects of soil crusting in Western Samoa are discussed. Illustrations of typical crust features include the glazed or 'frosted' surface of certain crusts, and dispersion mosaics. Surface mulches and fine ...
