  • Morphological typifications of Slovenia's surface using global classification methods
  • Morphology is often the most important factor in distinguishing landscapes and is an important element in geographical classifications, typifications, and regionalizations. Therefore, morphological divisions of the surface have a long tradition

  • A general framework for using the rate law to simulate morphological response to disturbance in the fluvial system
  • The framework includes 3 morphological response models, each developed from the fundamental rate law, which has the form of an exponential decay function. These models consider the possibility that characteristic behaviours of the fluvial system
  • , such as delayed response and/or cumulative effects, may affect morphological responses, making them capable of representing relaxation paths and times for a range of morphological response variables, whatever their initial states. To test their utility, the models
  • in the framework were applied to simulate the sequence of geomorphological responses to disruption observed in selected rivers with well-documented histories of morphological perturbation, adjustment and recovery. The results demonstrate that the models
  • in the general framework can successfully simulate temporal and spatial patterns of morphological response in the fluvial system under a range of different circumstances.

  • Morphological change of natural pipe outlets in blanket peat
  • This paper presents the first survey of natural pipe outlets in a peatland in which morphological changes in pipe outlets through time were measured. Three surveys of natural pipe outlets between 2007 and 2010 were conducted in a relatively
  • undisturbed, blanket-peat-covered catchment in northern England. The largest changes in pipe morphology occurred between July 2009 and April 2010, which spanned the coldest winter for 31 years in the UK. During this period there was a significant increase
  • in the proportion of vertically-elongated pipes and a decrease in the proportion of circular pipes. Pipe outlet morphology in blanket peat catchments is shown to be dynamic and may respond relatively quickly to changes in flow or extreme events, linked to short-term

  • The A. presents closed features of the superficial deposit on karst. The study areas were the following : karst areas in Hungary, a few karst areas of the Alps and the Padis Plateau (Apuseni Mountains, Romania). The A. investigated the morphology
  • of the depressions of superficial deposit (by topographical mapping, morphological mapping) and the morphology of the bedrock (by Vertical Electrical Sounding). He analysed the denudation types of superficial deposit found at the bottom of depressions of bedrock

  • , induration and erosion have played a larger role in the surface morphology and evolution of the MFF than previously recognized. The deposition, induration, and erosion of TARs indicate that the MFF has undergone multiple cycles of reworking, and that much

  • The Rhine bifurcation at Pannerden forms the major distribution point for water supply in the Netherlands. Its morphological stability has been a concern for centuries. The AA. present experiences from more than 2 decades of numerical morphological
  • and 3D morphological models are valuable tools, not only for pragmatic applications to engineering problems, but also for revealing the limitations of established knowledge and understanding of the relevant physical processes.

  • Interpretation of the complex dune morphology on Mars : dune activity, modelling and a terrestrial analogue
  • The AA. analyze a dark erg on Mars that could be considered a mega-dune (draa) where secondary dunes of different morphology are superposed over a main crescent-shaped bedform (primary dune). The presence of a complex, multi-directional wind regime

  • As shown in a number of recent studies, the nearshore bar morphology at Pensacola Beach varies alongshore in response to a ridge and swale bathymetry on the inner-shelf, creating hotspots of rip current activity. However, it remains unclear whether

  • Remote measurement of river morphology via fusion of LiDAR topography and spectrally based bathymetry
  • morphology that combines LiDAR topography with spectrally based bathymetry. Water surface elevations extracted from the LiDAR along the water's edge were used to produce a continuous water surface that preserved along-channel variations in slope. Subtracting

  • This study analyses beach morphological change during 6 consecutive storms acting on the meso-tidal Faro Beach (south Portugal) between 15 December 2009 and 7 January 2010. Morphological change of the sub-aerial beach profile was monitored through
  • stations. All the information combined suggests that during consecutive storm events, the antecedent morphological state can initially be the dominant controlling factor of beach response; while the hydrodynamic forcing, and especially the tide and surge

  • The Trascău Mountains are located in the eastern part of Apuseni Mountains. The 400–1400 m high mountains are lithologically compound and from a morphological viewpoint, Jurassic Limestone terrains are the most characteristic. Deep-walled

  • Spluga della Preta is one of the first caves in Italy to be well studied and described from a geological and morphological point of view. Eighty years after its first exploration a large amount of lithological and structural data has been collected

  • during summer and autumn. The morphology of the bend was very stable over the observation period and neither bank erosion nor pool scouring occurred. However, fine sediments accumulate within vegetation patches and in the recirculation zones while
  • the remaining open areas tend to erode slightly. With the decay of macrophytes in winter, sediment accumulations are mobilised again and the bathymetry levels, supporting cyclic models of morphologic change in vegetated bends. In the second part of the paper
