  • Adequacies and deficiencies of alpine and subalpine treeline studies in the national parks of the western USA
  • The AA. performed a content analysis on previous research that examined alpine treeline in national parks and classified each treeline study as anthropogenic, orographic/edaphic, or climatic according to the primary factor attributed to treeline
  • control. Results indicated that the 3 types of treeline are not uniformly studied. Climatic treeline is most commonly studied whereas anthropogenic and orographic/edaphic studies are often lacking. Furthermore, several western national parks are entirely

  • Bunkerology - a case study in the theory and practice of urban exploration
  • The paper reviews existing academic interpretations of urban exploration and argues that focus on identifying the emancipatory dimension of this practice has failed to account for the orientation evident in the study of accounts of exploration

  • The value of single-site ethnography in the global era : studying transnational experiences in the migrant house
  • The aim of the paper is to show the value of doing single-site ethnography in the field of transmigration studies. It concentrates on migrants' personal experiences of living in-between two countries. The A. shows how both the relationality
  • and emotionality of transnational experiences can be studied in one place : the migrant house.

  • This study’s deliberations evaluate possibilities for works of art to be used as a source of knowledge in geographical research, as well as to describe a model for the conveying of information between artist and recipient (viewer or reader). However
  • , to serve as a source of knowledge in geographical studies, a work of art work must fulfill several fundamental conditions. While there are a wide variety of arts, a particular role from the point of view of geographical studies is played by plastic arts

  • Retrofitting the suburbs to increase walking : evidence from a land-use-travel study
  • The paper reports results from a detailed travel diary survey in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County. Study areas were divided into four centres, typical of compact development or smart growth, and four linear, auto-oriented corridors. Results
  • show substantial variation in the amount of walking across study areas. Pedestrian-oriented neighbourhoods necessarily import shopping trips, and driving trips, from larger surrounding catchment areas. The results suggest both land use and mobility

  • Winter microclimatic regime of low-altitude scree slopes and its relation to topography : case study from the Ceske Stredohori Mts. (N Czech Republic)
  • In this study, the AA. present a pilot study focusing on the evaluation of topographical factors (elementary landforms, slope profile, clast size) that predispose the formation of different microclimatic regimes at screes that have similar physico

  • This study examines the dynamic morphology of 7 river mouths along the Israeli Mediterranean coast. It offers a conceptual model aimed at generalizing and describing their spatial and temporal morphological patterns, and the environmental factors
  • influencing them. The study methodology comprised a detailed monitoring and mapping by GIS techniques, with quantitative data derived from historic aerial photographs, river discharge records, wave measurements, and a digital elevation model. These data were
  • incorporated into a homogenous database and subsequently applied in the investigation of the morphological patterns of these mouths, and the analysis of their influencing factors. River mouths in this study occur in 2 distinctive topographic settings with quite
  • distinctive behavior : barrier topography and funnel topography. It is concluded that the topographic setting of the beach is the primary influencing factor on the morphology of the mouths studied.

  • Cultural landscape ; Europe ; Identification ; Indicator ; Landscape ; Marginality ; Peripheral region ; Tradition ; case studies ; hotspots ; indicators ; traditional cultural landscapes
  • Hotspots of traditional cultural landscapes in Europe can be found in locations which meet a specific set of characteristics. These characteristics were defined in a study based on literature review, content analysis and two case studies conducted
  • national mainstream. These indicators are exemplified in two case studies. Based on field work carried out in Las Hurdes, in Spain, and Gyimes, in Romania, I argue that the factors that once enabled unique cultural landscapes to emerge are also those
  • that nowadays help to preserve them as islands or hotspots in a globalized, and increasingly more uniform world. Finding and monitoring these traditional cultural landscape hotspots in Europe is the first prerequisite for systematically studying and eventually
  • protecting them. But existing inventory, monitoring and policy approaches have not been designed and hence are not fully able to identify regions with traditional cultural landscapes. The indicators presented in this study can be used to identify such regions.

  • Laser scanning applications in fluvial studies
  • The AA. evaluate here the use of high-resolution light detection and ranging altimetry (LiDAR) data in fluvial studies. First, they give an overview of the operation principles of different LiDAR systems. Second, they describe the steps needed
  • to produce a DTM from LiDAR point elevation data and discuss the effects of floodplain land cover and surface sediment characteristics on the accuracy of LiDAR data. Third, they present a review of LiDAR applications in fluvial studies. Finally, they conclude
  • with the state of the laser scanning applications (airborne laser scanning, terrestrial laser scanning or mobile laser scanning including boat- and cart-based mobile mapping systems) in fluvial studies and some potential future developments.

  • Geochemical Landscape Analysis: Development and Application to the Risk Assessment of Acid Mine Drainage. A Case Study in Central Sweden
  • Acid mine drainage containing toxic contaminants is a major cause of landscape degradation at numerous historic mine sites in Europe. Risk assessment of acid mine drainage and related polluted lands requires an approach that is able to study
  • geochemical landscape analysis tool is developed using landscape ecology spatial analysis and geochemical modelling methods. A case study is presented for the analysis of geochemical landscapes in central Sweden. Results show that the method can be used
  • efficiently for the risk assessment of toxic mine contaminants in the complex wetland landscape in the study area.
