  • Pickering, Kim L.; Le, Tan Minh (2016)
    Aligned short harakeke fibre (New Zealand flax) mats were produced using dynamic sheet forming, impregnated with epoxy resin, then pressed and cured on a compression moulder to manufacture composite materials. These ...
  • Shuib, Raa Khimi; Pickering, Kim L. (Elsevier, 2015)
    Tan δ and energy dissipated during hysteresis testing of isotropic and anisotropic MREs containing silane modified iron sand particles in a natural rubber matrix were compared with existing antivibration rubbers. Tan δ was ...
  • Bird, Steve; Tafalla, Carolina (2015)
    Chemokines are a superfamily of cytokines that appeared about 650 million years ago, at the emergence of vertebrates, and are responsible for regulating cell migration under both inflammatory and physiological conditions. ...
  • Hampton, G. W.; Bardsley, W. Earl; White, P. A.; Murphy, P. (2015)
    In 2012 a report was commissioned by the Gisborne District Council (GDC) to examine groundwater resources in the Poverty Bay flats. This report found that groundwater elevations within the Makauri Gravel aquifer (the aquifer ...
  • Salmon, Steven Ray; Lane, Joseph R. (AIP Publishing, 2015)
    We have investigated the lowest energy structures and interaction energies of the oxygen nitrous oxide complex (O₂–N₂O) using explicitly correlated coupled cluster theory. We find that the intermolecular potential energy ...
  • Smolenski, Grant A.; Cursons, Raymond T.; Hine, Brad C; Wheeler, Thomas T. (Springer, 2015)
    The bovine teat canal provides the first-line of defence against pathogenic bacteria infecting the mammary gland, yet the protein composition and host-defence functionality of the teat canal lining (TCL) are not well ...
  • de Lange, Willem P.; Moon, Vicki G.; Johnstone, Rowan (IPENZ, 2015)
    The eastern entrance to Tauranga Harbour has been modified by capital and maintenance dredging since 1968, raising concerns that there have been, or will be, adverse impacts. This paper reviews the effects that extreme ...
  • Cussioli, Mariana C.; Bryan, Karin R.; Pilditch, Conrad A.; de Lange, Willem P. (IPENZ, 2015)
    Water quality standards associated with dredging have become more stringent, requiring better monitoring and prediction. Here, we describe the dynamics and development of plumes generated during two dredging cycles and how ...
  • Kluger, Michal; Seibel, D; Moon, Vicki G.; Kreiter, S; Hepp, DA; de Lange, Willem P.; Jorat, Ehsan; Mörz, T (2015)
    Large areas of the North Island of New Zealand are covered by thick Pleistocene pyroclastic deposits that are often prone to coastal landslides. In the Tauranga region (Fig. 1a) some landslides are associated with the ...
  • Campbell, Marnie L.; Keith, Inti; Hewitt, Chad L.; Dawson, Terry P.; Collins, Ken (Regional Euro-Asian Biological Invasions Centre - REABIC, 2015)
    Some of my co-authors and I have just returned from one of the paradises on earth and a natural history mecca – The Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. We participated in (MLC, CLH) or hosted (IK, TD, KC) the 1st Tropical Island ...
  • Amesbury, M.J.; Charman, D.J.; Newnham, Rewi M.; Loader, N.J.; Goodrich, Jordan; Royles, Jessica; Campbell, David I.; Roland, Thomas P.; Gallego-Sala, Angela (2015)
    Carbon stable isotope (δ¹³C) records from vascular plant dominated peatlands have been used as a palaeoclimate proxy, but a better empirical understanding of fractionation processes in these ecosystems is required. Here, ...
