  • Using groundwater for hydro electric power generation

    Bardsley, W. Earl (The New Zealand Hydrological Society, 1995)
    Controlled groundwater abstraction could be used to offset the effects of drought by augmenting river discharge for power generation during times of low natural flows, such as occurred in New Zealand during the winter of ...
  • Using honey in wound care

    Molan, Peter C. (Essential Oil Resource Consultants, 2006)
    Honey is primarily a herbal product with some modifications that are made by the bees that process the nectar or sap collected from the plants to store as honey. The types of phytochemicals present in a honey depend on the ...
  • Using honey to heal diabetic foot ulcers

    Molan, Peter C.; Betts, J.A. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008)
    Diabetic ulcers seem to be arrested in the inflammatory/proliferative stage of the healing process, allowing infection and inflammation to preclude healing. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria have become a major cause of ...
  • Using keyphrases as search result surrogates on small screen devices

    Jones, Steve; Jones, Matt; Deo, Shaleen (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2003-09)
    This paper investigates user interpretation of search result displays on small screen devices. Such devices present interesting design challenges given their limited display capabilities, particularly in relation to screen ...
  • Using Koi Carp to Produce Fish Silage

    Oulavallickal, Tifany (University of Waikato, 2010)
    The natural environment of New Zealand is a highly cherished and important factor of the country. Introduced koi carp is considered a pest in New Zealand because it has a deleterious effect on fresh water systems. Hence ...
  • Using loops observed in Traceroute to infer the ability to Spoof

    Lone, Qasim; Luckie, Matthew John; Korczyński, Maciej; van Eeten, Michel (Springer, 2017)
    Despite source IP address spoofing being a known vulnerability for at least 25 years, and despite many efforts to shed light on the problem, spoofing remains a popular attack method for redirection, amplification, and ...
