  • of the future might shape geographies of whiteness. It explores this proposition by showing how the geographic study of whiteness is carried out through three past-oriented modes of analysis : labour studies ; postcolonial theory and identity ; and critical
  • whiteness studies and anti-racism. It then offers suggestions as to how each mode might benefit by engaging with the notion of futurity.

  • Assessment of agricultural land fragmentation in Romania, a case study : Izvoarele commune, Olt county
  • Agricultural land fragmentation is a common phenomenon in developing countries in general and for Romanian agriculture in particular. The aim of this study was to analyze the degree of fragmentation of Romania’s agricultural land, which
  • is considered a major obstacle in the development of a modern agriculture. The analysis undertaken has shown that the degree of land fragmentation is high in the study area; the most fragmented are the big farms, while the small ones are more compact. - (IKR)

  • Science studies in physical geography : An idea whose time has come?
  • The A. begins with an overview of work that argues for science studies in human geography, physical geography and the history of geology. He then discusses a series of science studies approaches that address different questions about the social
  • on a biographical science studies approach, he examines key aspects of the life and work of the river scientist Luna Leopold (1915–2006). This then leads to a discussion of the geographical imagination, and particularly how this is grounded in the sociological
  • imagination – where history and biography are entwined. In conclusion, the A. encourages to use science studies in research on the making and shaping of physical geography.

  • This study examined the changes in soil properties and soil quality 30 years after cultivated farmland was restored back to forest land in Loess Plateau, China. Specifically, organic matter, total nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), available N, P
  • and Potassium (K) contents and enzyme activities in soils were tested and analyzed. The study showed that after 30 years of restoration, nutrients content in the soil of mixed forest of black locust and amorpha increased significantly. However, nutrients content
  • in the soil of mixed forest of Chinese pine and amorpha decreased. The study also found that the organic matter content was relatively low in the restored soils, compared with not-restored land. This may be caused by the high enzyme activity per unit
  • of organic carbon in the soils of the study area which tends to help decompose and therefore decrease the organic matter in soil.

  • This progress report presents an overview of the latest planetary geomorphic studies characterizing aeolian processes on extraterrestrial surfaces. The understanding of aeolian processes on other planetary surfaces comes largely from Earth analog

  • are extremely relevant are discussed, including studies of basaltic dune fields, laboratory analyses, and the formation of linear dunes.
