    • A Crude Case: Landscapes of Extraction in Canadian Contemporary Visual Culture 

      French, Elysia
      In this dissertation, I examine the relationship between visual culture and the culture of oil in Canada, specifically, the visual culture of the Alberta oil sands. I situate my research in the context of recent contentious ...
    • Crustacean zooplankton sedimentary assemblages and the calcium concentration of softwater Ontario lakes 

      Jeziorski, Adam (2011-04-01)
      In recent decades, many softwater lakes on the boreal shield have experienced significant reductions in aqueous calcium (Ca) concentrations. These declines are a long-term consequence of acid deposition due to the depletion ...
    • Crustal Stresses and Seismicity in Intraplate Settings: Relationship to Geology and Driving Forces 

      Baird, William Alan Frank (2010-04-27)
      This thesis explores the relationship between contemporary stresses, paleotectonic structure, and seismicity within continental interiors. This is achieved by combining a variety of geophysical and geological data coupled ...
    • Cryogenic Alkali Halide Scintillators for Rare-Event Searches 

      Clark, Michael
      Rare-event searches such as the direct detection of dark matter require very low backgrounds, as well as large volumes of material because of the low rate of signal. Scintillators are an excellent particle detector candidate ...
    • Cryogenic Scintillators for Rare-Event Searches 

      Nadeau, Patrick (2015-05-22)
      Rare-event searches, such as the direct detection of dark matter, of neutrinoless double beta decay and of the decay of long-lived radioisotopes, require highly-sensitive radio-pure detectors to measure extremely rare ...
    • Crystal chemistry of the jarosite group of minerals - solid solution and atomic structures 

      Basciano, Laurel C. (2008-05-08)
      The jarosite group of minerals is part of the alunite supergroup, which consists of more than 40 different mineral species that have the general formula AB3(TO4)2(OH, H2O)6. There is extensive solid-solution in the A, B ...
    • A Crystal Plasticity Model of Fatigue of Dissimilar Magnesium Alloy Bi-Crystals 

      Knight, Simon (2015-09-03)
      A crystal plasticity finite element (CPFE) model was applied to the fatigue deformation of dissimilar Mg alloy bi-crystals. The mesoscopic stress-strain and microscopic slip and twinning behaviour of the model were first ...
    • CT Image Electron Density Quantification in Regions with Metal Implants: Implications for Radiotherapy Treatment Planning 

      Jechel, Christopher Alexander (2016-09-22)
      In radiotherapy planning, computed tomography (CT) images are used to quantify the electron density of tissues and provide spatial anatomical information. Treatment planning systems use these data to calculate the expected ...
    • Cucurbit[7]uril Host-Guest Complexes With Drug Molecules Containing Isoquinoline Groups 

      Kwok, Julian (2011-09-30)
      This thesis describes the host-guest chemistry between cucurbit[7]uril (CB[7]) and various guests that contain isoquinoline groups, including tacrine, papaverine, N-methyl papaverinium, N-methyl laudanosinium, 6,7-dimeth ...
    • Cucurbit[n]uril host-guest complexes: the effects of inclusion on the chemical reactivity and spectroscopic properties of aromatic guest molecules
