  • In the beginning was economic geography - a science studies approach to disciplinary history
  • The purposes of the paper are twofold. The first is to provide a selective review of science studies, with three subtraditions (Mertonian institutionalism, the sociology of scientific knowledge, and cultural studies of science). The second
  • is to begin developing a case study in order to apply such literature, that of the institutional origins of economic geography during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and linked to a series of wider social processes around commercial trade

  • Crust strength : a wind tunnel study of the effect of impact by saltating particles on cohesive soil surfaces
  • A wind tunnel study examined the effect of distributions of saltating particles on sediment surfaces which were characterized by distributions of their tensile strength. The sediments consisted of varying proportions of large sand-sized particles
  • with a fine particle cement. The energies of the impacting particles and the surface strength were compared with the mass of material lost from the surface. This paper extends the study to look at several crusts.

  • Hedgerow planting activities by Danish farmers : a case study from central Jutland
  • The study is based on a questionnaire survey with farmers in two parishes supplemented by aerial photo interpretation. The first section examines changes in hedgerow network parameters between 1972 and 1995. The second section analyses the net

  • Community resources and opportunities in ethnic economies : a case study of Portuguese and Black entrepreneurs in Toronto
  • The purpose of this study is to examine the behaviour, strategies and barriers faced by owners of ethnic businesses in order to evaluate how race and ethnicity impact upon entrepreneurship. It aims at investigating whether intergroup differences

  • From little Britain to little Italy : an urban ethnic landscape study in Toronto
  • After World War II, heavy Italian immigration diversified the city of Toronto. Immigrants settled around St Clair where the identity of Little Britain gave way to Little Italy. The study documents and interprets landscape change on St Clair since

  • Developing a magnetic tracer to study soil erosion
  • This study develops a new magnetic tracer technique for measuring the movement of sediment caused by water erosion. The AA. set out to develop a synthetically constructed, magnetic material which moves with the soil during erosion events, and which
  • . This paper deals with the basic preliminary studies of the construction of the synthetic beads and their basic response to rill and interrill erosion processes.

  • This paper discusses the results of a lichenometrical and geomorphological study of one of the few remaining active snow hollows in the central region of the Iberian Peninsula. The study area, located on a glacial shoulder, is called Hoya del
  • Cuchillar de las Navajas. A protalus rampart occurs at the base of the hollow. The studies, conducted between 1992 and 1998, were designed to determine the geomorphological characteristics of Hoya, the mobility of the deposits, and the characteristics
  • of the snow cover. These data formed the basis for a study of the lichen colonization on the blocks and on the wall surrounding the snow hollow.

  • Gypsum formation in non-calcareous building sandstone : a case study of Scrabo sandstone
  • This paper addresses one central issue of building stone research : an origin for calcium in gypsum formation in non-calcareous sandstones. A comparative study of Scrabo sandstone from outcrops and a 120-year-old building in central Belfast shows
  • pollution. This study highlights the potential for future research into an internal mineralogical source of calcium for gypsum formation in building stones.

  • A flume design for the study of slope length effects on runoff
  • Recent publications from field and simulation studies indicate that runoff per unit area decreases as the length of the slope being observed is increased. This paper presents the design and testing of a laboratory flume for the study

  • Because of geography's tradition in studying human-environmental interaction, one would expect the discipline to play a strong role in environmental and resource study programs in western universities ; however, that is not the case. A. reviews
  • state of resource studies before and after Erath Day 1970. The programs offering resource/environmental studies, in the APCG region at least, educate twice as many students as do geography departments. A. calls on geography to increase its involvement
