      Guiao, Karelle (University of Waterloo, 2022-04-20)
      The components of lignocellulosic biomasses are attractive material alternatives for petroleum-derived products as they are renewable bioresources. However, their applicability is currently stunted by their acid-heavy ...
    • Greenhouse gas cycling in experimental boreal reservoirs 

      Venkiteswaran, Jason James (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-05)
      Hydroelectric reservoirs account for 59% of the installed electricity generating capacity in Canada and 26% in Ontario. Reservoirs also provide irrigation capacity, drinking water, and recreational opportunities. Further, ...
    • Greenhouse gas flux and budget from an experimentally flooded wetland using stable isotopes and geochemistry 

      Saquet, Michelle (University of Waterloo, 2003)
      A boreal forest wetland (L979) was flooded in 1993 at the Experimental Lakes Area, Ontario to imitate a hydroelectric reservoir and to study the effects of flooding on greenhouse gas production and emission. Flooding ...
    • Greening the Game: Understanding the Organizational and Geographic Factors Influencing Environmental Commitment Among Professional Sports Teams 

      Hupman, Zachary (University of Waterloo, 2018-04-30)
      North American professional sports teams have substantial economic and social leverage due to their sizeable revenue streams and captive audiences. However, these professional sports teams also have the potential to influence ...
    • Green’s Function for Poisson Equation in Layered Nano-Structures including Graphene 

      Kang, Naijing (University of Waterloo, 2015-05-04)
      The purpose of this thesis is to focus on the electrostatic properties of graphene-based nanostructures consisting of different materials, as well as their interactions with external electric charges, by solving the boundary ...
    • Gregory of Nazianzus: carmen II. 1. 22: An Edition and Commentary 

      Barrales-Hall, Andrea Lynn (University of Waterloo, 2012-08-29)
      Gregory of Nazianzus (ca. AD 330-390) was one of the most learned men of his time and is one of the most important theologians of the early Christian Church. His orations, letters and poetry were widely studied and greatly ...
    • Grey Level Visual Cryptography for General Access Structures 

      MacPherson, Lesley (University of Waterloo, 2002)
      Visual cryptography, first introduced by Naor and Shamir, allows a secret (black and white) image to be encoded and distributed to a set of participants such that certain predefined sets of participants may reconstruct the ...
    • Grey Numbers in Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis and Conflict Resolution 

      Hanbin, Kuang (University of Waterloo, 2014-10-24)
      Definitions of grey numbers are adapted for incorporation into Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis and the Graph Model for Conflict Resolution in order to capture uncertainty in decision making. The main objective is to ...
    • GREY TO GREEN 13 GATES TO THE GREENBELT 

      El Filali, Salim (University of Waterloo, 2019-10-21)
      The Greenbelt was created by the Government of Ontario in 2005 to protect working farms, wetlands, natural habitats, woods and river valleys that surround the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Its vast 8000 square kilometers ...
    • Grid + Ghost 

      Neufeld, Stephanie (University of Waterloo, 2013-02-21)
      The thesis begins with a notion to design a school of architecture in Saskatchewan. The context, at first, appears overwhelmingly basic: an agricultural grid superimposed on a horizontal plain, under an endless sky. This ...
    • Grid Filters for Local Nonlinear Image Restoration 

      Veldhuizen, Todd (University of Waterloo, 1998)
      A new approach to local nonlinear image restoration is described, based on approximating functions using a regular grid of points in a many-dimensional space. Symmetry reductions and compression of the sparse grid make ...
    • Grid-able Plug-in Electric Vehicles in Smart Grids: Incorporation into Demand Response 

      Akhavan Rezai, Seyedeh Elham (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-22)
      Electric transportation has attracted a great deal of interest within the transport sector because of its notable potential to become a low-carbon substitute for conventional combustion engine vehicles. However, widespread ...
    • Gromit An In-Memory Graph Database 

      Cui, Yunling (University of Waterloo, 2017-02-28)
      This work presents the implementation of an in-memory graph database management system called Gromit. This graph database represents large and complex networks using labelled property graphs, and encodes semantic information ...
    • Group Preferences for Rural Amenities and Farmland Preservation in the Niagara Fruit Belt 

      Prins, Peter Gideon (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      During the production of agricultural commodities, an agricultural landscape is simultaneously being produced. In many regions, agriculture is no longer valued for just the production of food and fibre but also for the ...
    • Group-finding with photometric redshifts: The Photo-z Probability Peaks algorithm 

      Gillis, Bryan (University of Waterloo, 2010-01-25)
      We present a galaxy group-finding algorithm, the Photo-z Probability Peaks (P3) algorithm, optimized for locating small galaxy groups using photometric redshift data by searching for peaks in the signal-to-noise of the ...
    • A Grouped Hamming Network 

      Logan, Bryan (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-30)
      A distributed hash table (DHT) is a type of peer-to-peer (P2P) network that, like traditional hash tables, maps keys to values. Unlike traditional hash tables, however, the data is distributed across a network with each ...
