  • Note on paramoudra-like carbonate concretions in the Urenui Formation, North Taranaki: possible plumbing system for a Late Miocene methane seep field

    Nelson, Campbell S.; Schellenberg, Francesca; King, Peter R.; Ricketts, Brian D.; Kamp, Peter J.J.; Browne, Gregory H.; Campbell, Kathleen A. (Ministry of Economic Development, 2004)
    A reconnaissance study of calcitic and dolomitic tubular concretions in upper slope mudstone of the Late Miocene Urenui Formation exposed along the north Taranaki coastline indicates that they have a complex diagenetic ...
  • A note on the average propensity to consume, wealth and threshold adjustment

    Holmes, Mark J.; Shen, Xin (Elsevier, 2013)
    We explore the connection between the average propensity to consume (APC) and wealth to income ratio (WY) in the US. We find evidence of a long-run relationship characterised by threshold error correction. It is the APC ...
  • Note on the occurrence of Taupo pumice in the Hamilton basin

    Tonkin, Philip J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The presence of a thin layer of pumice lapilli and ash close to the surface of the Rukuhia and Moanatuatua peat bogs was recorded by Grange and Taylor (1939). Since this time a similar band of pumice has been noted in many ...
  • Note on the pumped storage potential of the Onslow-Manorburn depression, New Zealand

    Bardsley, W. Earl (New Zealand Hydrological Society, 2005)
    The Onslow-Manorburn depression in the South Island of New Zealand has possibility for development as the upper reservoir of the world's largest pumped storage scheme, as measured by an energy storage capacity of 10,200 ...
  • Note on y-truncation: a simple approach to generating bounded distributions for environmental applications

    Bardsley, W. Earl (Elsevier, 2007)
    It may sometimes be desirable to introduce bounds into probability distributions to formalise the presence of upper or lower physical limits to data to which the distribution has been applied. For example, an upper bound ...
  • Notes on the belemnite content of the Heterian and Ohauan stages at Kawhia Harbour, New Zealand

    Challinor, A.B. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    The belemnite content of the Heterian and Ohauan stages at Kawhia Harbour is described. Six major species or groups are differentiated, each of which ranges through several hundred feet of strata. Other minor elements are ...
  • Notes on the hydrology of the Waikato River

    Ridall, G.T. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The catchment area of the Waikato River is 5,500 square miles. If its source is accepted as being the Upper Waikato, then its distance to the sea at Port Waikato including its journey through Lake Taupo is 266 miles. It ...
  • Notes: an experiment in CSCW

    Apperley, Mark; Gianoutsos, Simon; Grundy, John C.; Paynter, Gordon W.; Reeves, Steve; Venable, John R. (1996-04)
    Computer Supported Co-operative Work (CSCW) systems are complex, yet no computer-based tools of any sophistication exist to support their development. Since several people often need to work together on the same project ...

  • The Nourishing Revolution: Exploring the Praxis of the Weston A. Price Foundation

    Ritchie, Isa Pearl (University of Waikato, 2011)
    As consumers of food, we are faced with many choices every day. We are encouraged to make healthy choices, but ‘healthy’ in today’s supermarket can mean many things: heart healthy, light, lite, cholesterol reducing, gluten ...
  • Novel Brominated Alkaloids from the Bryozoan Amathia citrina
