Petrography and mineralogy of the C29/30 Candle Lake Kimberlite, Saskatchewan, Canada
Petrography and mineralogy of the C29/30 Candle Lake kimberlite (Saskatchewan, Canada) was studied to understand the characteristics of the kimberlite. Using standard optical microscopy three units where distinguished; ...
Dynamics of single axle rail wheelsets incorporating profiled wheels and rails
This thesis presents the theories and numerical simulations in regard to the behaviour of a single-axle railway wheelset commonly used in cargo rail cars. Specifically, creep forces, dynamic models, real wheel-rail profiles, ...
Books and readers, 1583; a survey and analysis of all books printed in England or in English abroad during the year 1583
This thesis constitutes a survey and analysis of all the works printed in England or in English abroad between January 1, 1583 and December 31, 1583.
The Italian community in Fort William's East End in the early twentieth century
By the turn of the twentieth century in the midst of almost every significant urban centre of Canada and the United States, there existed a so-called "Little Italy" or "Italian Colony". These were sections of cities or ...
Barren-ground caribou - a cyclic species: The development of a cycle-stratified harvest model and a cycle analysis of North American barren-ground caribou subpopulations
Unlike all other members of the deer family, subpopulations of barren-ground caribou (Rangifer tarandus groenlandicus) exhibit fluctuations in numbers that have been described as cyclic. We created a cyclic individual-based ...
Sensation seeking: cognitive and psychophysical correlates
The large body of research on exploratory behaviour, early isolation, sensory deprivation, and sensory overload has suggested the hypothesis that organisms seek an optimal level of stimulation from their environment. ...
The influence of water table fluctuation on hydrarch succession in two subarctic peatlands in Eastern James Bay, Quebec
Northern peatlands contain close to one-third of the world’s soil carbon and changes to their ecology and hydrology play a major role in the fate of these carbon stocks and the direction of their climate feedbacks. Recent ...
Evaluating consumer grade UAVs and their potential applications and implications in Ontario consulting archaeology
Archaeological investigation is an inherently destructive process that threatens permanent data loss if archaeological sites are inadequately recorded. While archaeologists strive to develop innovative methods to ensure ...
Organic semiconductors containing multi-heteroatom rings
Oligomers of thiophene are ubiquitous in molecular materials research. Other ring systems, especially those lacking at least C2v symmetry are much less common. We investigated thiophene-thiazole, pyrrole-thiazole, ...
