  • Keeping tabs on Kansas : reflections on regionally based field study
  • Cultural studies ; Kansas ; Midwest ; Regional analysis ; Regional geography ; Regionalism ; United States of America
  • Paper presented originally as keynote address for the 1996 Annual Meeting of the Southwestern Division of the Association of American Geographers. Using Kansas to illustrate, A. calls for more regional and local studies to further the understanding
  • of place and culture. He notes that the people, in what he calls neolocalism, are seeking regional lore and local attachment and that anthropologists, environmental historians, and other academics are quick to study and give voice to unique regional

  • Maps of Storglaciären and their use in glacier monitoring studies
  • Photogrammetrical studies of volume changes of glaciers are a helpful complementary tool to field studies of mass balance. Map data give an indication as to what has happened and field data provide possibilities to interpret why it happened
  • . Photogrammetric studies are thus well suited for monitoring programmes , especially in remote areas such as in the Arctic.

  • Nature preserves and community conflict: a case study in highland Ecuador
  • Case study of local involvement in protecting the Mindo y Nambillo forest west of Quito. Concludes that neither a bottoms-up nor top-down approach is likely to ensure the future integrity for this forest. - (DWG)

  • Remote sensing techniques for landslide studies and hazard zonation in Europe
  • This paper will give a general overview of the research done in each of the three phases of landslide studies within the EC countries: detection and classification of landslides, monitoring the activity of existing landslides, and analysis

  • The study covers the historical evolution of the urbanization process in Kenya by considering the pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial periods until 1974 when the development centre policy was adopted. After 1974, the study concentrates
  • on assessing the performance of the development centre policy with emphasis on the development of Eldoret municipality as the study area and the impact on its environment and rural hinterland. -(AGD)

  • Analysis of 52 published studies to determine the importance of scale in the debate over the causes of flooding in Bangladesh. Local studies have scales that are explicitly defined and focus on physical variables, whereas regional and continental
  • studies have implicitely defined scales that focus on natural resource topics. - (DWG)

  • Rural studies special issue
  • Recent theorisation in rural studies provides insights that assist interpretation of change in the Tasmanian dairy industry. Factors contributing to change include growth of foreign ownership of dairy properties and manufacturing plant. The changes

  • Consumption ; Cultural studies ; Post-modernism ; Town ; United States of America ; Urban landscape ; Urban park
  • The A. argues that recent work in cultural geography, with both its rich engagement with culture theory and its enthusiasm for empirical study of everyday life, can shed new light on our understanding of the city. A brief tour of the quintessential

  • Suicide and parasuicide in London: a small-area study
  • The study discusses variability in the spatial prevalence of suicide and parasuicide across small areas in London in relation to the social and demographic composition of their populations. The focus is on the relative importance in explaining

  • Palaeoenvironmental interpretation of geomorphological and pedological studies in the rain forest core-areas of Eastern Zaire (Central Africa)
  • Geomorphological studies on the Late Quaternary landscape evolution in areas of eastern Zaire indicated by pedological, sedimentological, and geochemical evidence that the recent rain forest of the region within the glacial core-areas was strongly

  • The purpose of this study is to determine the validity of the POD Index for the classification of some Florida soils in thermic and hyperthermic temperature regimes, based on the methods of Schaetzl and Mokma (1988). This study, therefore, extends

  • Relief peels in the study of palaeoflood slack-water sediments
  • -water sediments as massive and structureless, is erroneous in most cases where relief peels are studied in conjunction with field-outcrop sections. Relief peels are an important tool in differentiating between palaeoflood, nonpalaeoflood and intraflood

  • This study focuses on the role of vegetation in streambank retreat and deposition along incised and variably entrenched streams during a drought. The study also investigates vegetation as associated with different bank profiles and the amount
  • of bank change which takes place at various heights on the bank. Because the study was conducted during the sixth year of drought, fluvial erosion was atypical and is specifically identified in the text where it occurred.

  • This article reviews the physical links between tropical rain forests and the atmosphere, and considers the results of studies which address the climatic impacts of deforestation. There is a growing consensus that deforestation leads to warmer
  • , drier climates. This consensus is based on experimental studies at the microscale and modelling studies at the local and regional scale. Very few comprehensive empirical studies have been conducted at the local to regional scale. Consequently

  • Deprived people or deprived places? Exploring the ecological fallacy in studies of deprivation with the Samples of Anonymised Records
  • The unit of analysis in deprivation studies are local-government wards or districts. This type of approach may be subject to ecological fallacy. Although some studies have been besed on purpose-designed individual-level survey data, these often lack

  • Geomorphological study of the Fadalto landslide, Venetian Prealps, Italy
  • . The study of this landslide is important not only to understand the geomorphological history of this alpine area, and why the Piave River modified its course in the Late Pleistocene, but also the links with human activities, and specifically with the road
