  • Dusty horizons

    Lowe, David J.; Tonkin, Philip J.; Palmer, Jonathan G.; Lanigan, Kerri Miriam; Palmer, Alan S. (Geoscience Society of New Zealand with GNS Science, 2015)
    Dust whipped up and deposited by wind forms sheets of loess, which drape over the land. These loess deposits and the soils formed within them yield insights into past climatic and environmental change.
  • Duty factor is a viable measure to classify spontaneous running forms

    Patoz, Aurélien; Gindre, Cyrille; Thouvenot, Adrien; Mourot, Laurent; Hébert-Losier, Kim; Lussiana, Thibault (MDPI, 2019)
    Runners were classified using two different methods based on their spontaneous running form: (1) subjectively using the V®score from the Volodalen® scale, leading to terrestrial and aerial groups; and (2) objectively using ...
  • DVD Review: Move it

    Cheesman, Sue (2007)
    DVD review of Move it (Dance class choreographed and taught by Anita Hutchins).
  • Dying to research: An autoethnographic exploration of researching Māori and whānau experiences of end-of-life care

    Moeke-Maxwell, Tess; Nikora, Linda Waimarie; Te Awekotuku, Ngahuia (Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, 2010)
    The authors critically reflect on the autoethnographic process involved in navigating a smooth pathway towards investigating dying, death and bereavement for Māori whānau (families) in a way that supports and gives voice ...
  • The dynamic adjustment of factor inputs and its policy implications for major wheat producing areas in China

    Chen, Shuzhang; Oxley, Les; Xu, Zheng; Wang, Yanqing; Ma, Hengyun (Elsevier, 2013)
    China's major wheat producing areas play a crucial role in ensuring domestic grain production and food security more generally and it is therefore of significance, both empirically and theoretically, to investigate the ...
  • Dynamic analysis of the WESMO FSAE car’s suspension

    Kopf, Larissa Franziska (The University of Waikato, 2020)
    Over the years motorsport has become a large part of society with many millions of dollars spent on the design and development of the cars. However, with many racing series evening out the playing field between low and ...
  • A dynamic and flexible representation of social relationships in CSCW

    Jones, Steve; Marsh, Steve (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1997-01)
    CSCW system designers lack effective support in addressing the social issues and interpersonal relationships which are linked with the use of CSCW systems. We present a formal description of trust to support CSCW system ...
  • Dynamic conceptions of input, output and interaction: Vietnamese EFL lecturers learning second language acquisition theory

    Nguyen, Van Loi (University of Waikato, 2011)
    Although research into language teacher learning and cognition and teaching innovations oriented to communicative tasks has been abundant, little has addressed EFL teachers’ learning and conceiving of SLA principles ...
  • Dynamic Conditioning: Preparation of actors for the delivery of dynamic performance

    Sturgess-Monks, Nicholas (University of Waikato, 2013)
    This thesis represents an attempt to establish, and develop, a methodology for the preparation of actors for delivery of a physically and vocally dynamic performance, informed by the fact of theatrical immediacy. Specifically, ...
  • Dynamic correlation analysis of financial contagion in Asian markets in global financial turmoil

    Yiu, Matthew S.; Ho, Wai-Yip Alex; Choi, Daniel F.S. (Taylor and Francis, 2010)
    This article investigates the dynamics of correlation between 11 Asian stock markets and the US stock market. By utilizing the method of 'principal components', we identify a single latent factor that can explain a major ...
  • Dynamic digital library construction and configuration

    Bainbridge, David; Don, Katherine J.; Buchanan, George; Witten, Ian H.; Jones, Steve; Jones, Matt; Barr, Malcolm I. (Springer, 2004)
    This paper describes a digital library architecture and implementation that is configurable, extensible and dynamic in the way it presents content and in the services it provides. The design manifests itself as a network ...
  • Dynamic Electroporation Modelling

    Talele, Sadhana (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    In this thesis, modelling and simulation of the effects of electric fields on a single spherical cell are undertaken. Of interest is the effect that different electric field waveforms have on the induced transmembrane ...
  • Dynamic equilibrium in applied geomorphology: Two case studies

    Douglas, Ian (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Engineering works and agricultural activity which change the relationship between rainfall and river flow lead to modifications of river channels with attendant erosion and deposition problems. In the Swiss Jura Lakes area, ...
  • Dynamic magnetic reconnection at an X-type neutral point

    Craig, Ian J.D.; McClymont, A.N. (1991)
    The relaxation of a two-dimensional "X-type" neutral point magnetic field disturbed from equilibrium is considered. Perturbations are shown to possess well-defined azimuthal modes which allow an exact determination of the ...
  • Dynamic magnetic reconnection in three space dimensions: Fan current solutions

    Craig, Ian J.D.; Fabling, R.B. (1998-03)
    The problem of incompressible, nonlinear magnetic reconnection in three-dimensional "open" geometries is considered. An analytic treatment shows that dynamic "fan current" reconnection may be driven by superposing long ...
  • Dynamic modelling of a three-sector transitional economy

    Lim, Steven; Harland, Derek (Dept. of Economics, University of Waikato, 2001-10)
    Rural industry provides inputs and markets for agriculture, which in turn provides inputs and markets for rural industry. As the mutually supportive linkages between rural industry and agriculture develop, the size of both ...
  • Dynamic planar magnetic reconnection solutions for incompressible plasmas

    Craig, Ian J.D.; Watson, P.G. (1999-05)
    The planar magnetic reconnection problem for viscous, resistive plasmas is addressed. We show that solutions can be developed by superposing transient nonlinear disturbances onto quiescent “background” fields. The disturbance ...
