  • Changes in clientelism and urban government : a comparative case study of Naples and Marseilles
  • Adoptant un point de vue socio-historique comparatif, l'A. montre que dans ces deux villes l'essor du clientélisme politique dépend surtout, non pas de facteurs culturels, mais de processus politico-institutionnels. Les décennies 1960 et 1970 ont

  • Note sur les fondements des postcolonial studies
  • Cette note présente les principaux traits qui fondent les postcolonial studies telles qu'elles se sont développées dans le monde anglo-saxon depuis une vingtaine d'années. Cette mise au point vise à clarifier les échanges en montrant le décalage
  • entre le post-colonial français et les postcolonial studies.

  • This study attempts to apply pedology to resolve the factors controlling the geomorphic evolution of terraces in the Pakua tableland. In this study, the weighted mean profile development index (PDI or WPDI) and the amounts of Fe and Al in soils
  • are examined and compared with those obtained in other studies to estimate soils and/or river terrace ages in the Pakua tableland. Moreover, landscape evolution and active deformation of the study area are discussed based on the pedogenic processes.

  • We used the integred model of geographical study of the environment and its components as a basis of our river basin study, with the purpose of informing the public and environment decision makers about the importance of preserving good condition
  • of water resources. The methodology, which is based on the study of mutual correlation between natural characteristics of the river basin, the activities in the river basin and the quality of water, includes the hydrogeographical study of the river basin
  • , the establisment of environmental indicators for the protection of the river basin, and the foundation of ten research points fo monitoring the condition of water resources. We chose the Sotla's river basin for our study, but the model can also be transferred

  • The effect of interpolation methods in surface definition : an experimental study
  • The aim of this study is to investigate which one is more suitable by comparing the interpolation methods used in defining terrain surfaces. For this purpose, a uniform surface hill-shaped artificial object with a known volume was employed. The 3D

  • This study addresses the issue of nonlinear determinism in river flow series using prediction as a possible indicator. First, a brief account of the nonlinear local approximation method and the inverse approach to identify nonlinear determinism
  • is presented. Next, a review of the studies that have attempted river flow predictions using the nonlinear deterministic method is provided, followed by a discussion on the presence of nonlinear determinism through the inverse approach. Conclusions and scope
  • for further studies are reported at the end.

  • In order to provide a basis for future study, and to determine whether changes in urban stream-channel morphology can be detected in a short time period, 2 urban streams in Fayetteville were chosen for repeat cross-section measurement and suspended
  • sediment sampling over 18 months. Standard U.S. Geological Survey measurement and sampling techniques were used. An overall decrease in mean depth was observed over the study period. Channel shape varied with land use in the study area. Sites with more
  • disturbances in the near-channel environment were variable over the course of the study, exhibiting a complex response to several types of disturbances.
