  • Risky times: Hazard management and the tyranny of the present

    White, Iain; Haughton, Graham (Elsevier, 2017)
    This paper examines how the processes and practices of hazard management skew decision-making towards current concerns, shaping the treatment of the future in the present. We reveal how norms of science and policy combine ...
  • River Co-management and Planning in the Waikato: An Analysis of Regional and District Plans and Regional Policy Statement Compliance, and a New Approach to Plan Preparation

    den Ouden, Hester (University of Waikato, 2017)

    Paterson, Adam Karl (University of Waikato, 2000)
    Where the Ashburton river meets the sea it is impounded by a mixed sand-gravel barrier, formed through littoral transport of sediment, causing a lagoon to form, locally referred to as hapua. From the hapua, discharge to ...
  • RNAi-mediated Reduction of a Major Ruminant Specific Milk Allergen Using a Transgenic Mouse Model

    Mackie, Hamish W.; Charlton, Samuel G.; Baas, Peter H.; Villasenor, Pablo C. (Elsevier, 2013)
    The self-explaining roads (SER) approach uses road designs that evoke correct expectations and driving behaviours from road users to create a safe and user-friendly road network. Following the implementation of an SER ...

    Charlton, Samuel G.; Baas, Peter H. (2002)
    The goal of the Road User Interactions research programme is a better understanding of the human factors of our road transport system: road user demographics, risk perceptions of road users, and the driving attitudes of ...

    Antarctic and Southern Ocean science is vital to understanding natural variability, the processes that govern global change and the role of humans in the Earth and climate system. The potential for new knowledge to be ...
  • Robert and Elizabeth Mackie: a Te Aroha butcher and his family

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    Although Elizabeth Mackie was fondly remembered, her husband, Robert, was not. Both were of Scottish parentage, and lived in various places in New Zealand before settling in Te Aroha in the early 1880s. Having participated ...
  • Robert John Michael: a Te Aroha labourer

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    An Irishman, Michael prospected at Waihi before settling in Te Aroha in late 1882, where he owned several worthless mines close to that settlement and also at Stoney Creek. He also acquired and developed farmland on the ...
  • Robin's inequality for 11-free integers

    Broughan, Kevin A.; Trudgian, Tim (State University of West Georgia, Charles University, and DIMATIA, 2015)
    Let σ(n) denote the sum of divisors function, and let ϒ be Euler’s constant. We prove that if there is an n≥5041 for which σ(n)≥eϒn log log n, then n must be divisible by the eleventh power of some prime.
  • Robocop - The depersonalisation of police officers and their emotions: A diary study of emotional labor and burnout in front line British police officers

    Lennie, Sarah-Jane; Crozier Sarah, E.; Sutton, Anna (Elsevier BV, 2019)
    Policing has long been recognized as an emotionally distressing and stressful occupation, and recent years have seen a marked increase in psychological illness within the police service of Britain. Research into the emotional ...
