  • A systematic study of South African emigrants’ experience of the Canadian environment
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the coupling between the immigrant and the new environment by focusing on South African emigrants in Canada’s experience of the environment. This included the immigrants’ adaptation as a whole to the physical

  • Degree of human transformation of landscapes : a case study from Hungary
  • In the study the CORINE land use categories were used to identify the scale of human impact on the landscapes. The test area covered 12 natural microregions in north-eastern Hungary. - (AM)

  • Preliminary study of the interference of surface objects and rainfall in overland flow resistance
  • This study examines the validity of linear superposition approach when rainfall and surface roughness are considered in overland flow resistance. To examine a possible interference in flow resistance, a set of flume experiments using surface objects

  • The effect of survey density on the results of geopedological approach in soil mapping : a case study in the Borujen region, Central Iran
  • This paper examines the influence of sampling intervals on the accuracy of geopedological results in the Borujen region, Central Iran. After a primary interpretation of the study area on air photos (1:20 000), a geomorphic unit that encompassed
  • the maximum surface of the sample area (and also the study area) was selected and was surveyed at 3 different scales: 500, 250 and 125 m intervals. The credibility of generalization of the results of the geopedological approach for the studied unit was tested

  • In this study, a series of simulation experiments were conducted to study the effects of gravel mulches of different sizes on evaporation process from soil surface. Four mulch treatment levels were used. The major objectives were : 1) to estimate
  • the water conservation of the gravel mulches on the cumulative soil evaporation and soil evaporation rate; 2) to study the effects of the gravel size on the evaporation processes and water conservation.

  • Do swarms of migrating barchan dunes record paleoenvironmental changes ? A case study spanning the middle to late Holocene in the Pampa de Jaguay, southern Peru
  • In this paper, a possible use of barchan swarms for paleoenvironmental reconstructions is presented. The approach is based on dune migration. In a case study based on 500 dunes in the Pampa de Jaguay aeolian transport corridor in coastal southern

  • Grazing history affects the tree-line ecotone : a case study from Hardanger, Western Norway
  • This study compares the tree and ground cover of 2 localities having different grazing histories in the tree-line ecotone of Western Norway. Data from the sampling of trees, saplings, seedlings and ground cover, tree age determinations, aerial

  • In this study, soil and geomorphic properties related to landslide occurence were studied at 18 landslides in the Bridger-Teton National Forest (BTNF). Landslides were categorized as active or inactive based on geomorphic features. Landslide soil
  • characteristics including texture, shrink-swell potential, clay mineralogy, and horizonation were compared on active and inactive landslides. This study shows that soil characteristics and slope geomorphic properties may be useful for assessing landslide frequency

  • In this study, the AA. describe landscape-scale patterns of the upper boundaries of forest in 5 valleys in the inner and peripheral regions of the Alps. The aim is to describe present treeline altitudes according to climatic, geomorphologic
  • and anthropogenic factors in order to select sites appropriate to the study of climatic treeline dynamics. Moreover, the AA. want to check whether or not human disturbance has a different impact on treeline altitude in the study sites.

  • Abandonment of soil and water conservation structures in Mediterranean ecosystems. A case study from south east Spain
  • The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the degradation of soil and water conservation (SWC) structures and the relative importance of the driving forces. It describes a case study of the headwaters of a marl catchment (Cárcavo) in Murcia region
