  • Negotiating particularity in neoliberalism studies : tracing development strategies across neoliberal urban governance projects
  • Building on well developed research frameworks in neoliberalism studies, this article proposes a set of analytical tools to interpret links between particular projects and homogenizing practices. It illustrates this with a case study of urban

  • Assessment of bioclimatic conditions in cities for tourism and recreational purposes (A Warsaw case study)
  • votes cast by tourists in the course of leisure activities in Warsaw's Old Town area. This validation revealed that, while weather perception does not only depend on meteorological factors, usage of UTCI is an appropriate approach to the study

  • Studying the relationship between water-induced soil erosion and soil organic matter using Vis–NIR spectroscopy and geomorphological analysis : A case study in southern Italy
  • The AA. focused on : (1) using of the laboratory-based, proximally sensed in the visible-near-infrared (Vis-NIR, 400-2500 nm) spectral range to predict SOM content in the study area; (2) combining soil spectroscopy and geostatistics for mapping SOM
  • content; (3) mapping zones affected by water erosion processes in the study area; and (4) analyzing the relationship among soil erosion, SOM and soil spectral data. The study was performed in the Turbolo catchment, located in northern Calabria. Areas

  • A review of ground-penetrating radar studies related to peatland stratigraphy with a case study on the determination of peat thickness in a northern boreal fen in Quebec, Canada
  • This paper presents a review of recent ground-penetrating radar (GPR) applications to peatlands, particularly to determine peat stratigraphy. An example study of acquisition and comparison of peatland soil thickness of a fen-dominated watershed
  • these difficulties (the higher time required for analysis and the error margin) it seems more appropriate to use a GPR, instead of a graduated rod linked to a GPS, to measure the peat depths on a site like the one presented in this study.

  • Preliminary study on the activity of the Yuanmou-Xigeda fault during the Late Quaternary
  • Based on geomorphologic analysis by the high-resolution satellite (American Landsat ETM), combined with field observation and measurement on the tectono-geomorphologic characteristics in the studied area, activity of the Yuanmou-Xigeda Fault during
  • the Late Quaternary was studied. The morphology of the rivers and ridges along the fault shows S type with en echelon arrangement. Meanwhile, the fault activity indicates sinistral strike slip and formed a number of pull-apart basins and rift lakes along
  • the fault belt. Since the Late Quaternary, the current tectono-geomorphic features in the studied areas were formed by the activity of the Yuanmou-Xigeda fault which shows sinistral strike slip strongly and local inclined slip. The mid-southern section

  • the study area. The results are in conformity with previous studies examining diurnal patterns of convective weather processes in this region, with most lightning activity concentrated over land areas. The peak time of lightning activity over most
  • of the study area was during late afternoon hours. The peak time of lightning activity was observed during early morning hours in some coastal areas, such as Cameroon, which can be a result of local-level convergence between the land and sea breeze. A general
  • progression in the time of lightning activity from late afternoon to early evening hours was observed throughout the interior of the study area, which may be attributed to land-surface heating and associated mesoscale convective systems, and to upper-level

  • [b1] Dept. of Geography and Regional Studies, Univ., Miami, Etats-Unis
  • This study proposes a computationally simple approach to multi-unit reporting by using analysis of variance and incorporating ‘twice-stratified’ statistics, called sandwich estimation. Through the examples of case study I (a study of land use
  • in Shandong province where the attribute is spatially continuous) and case study II (a village-based study of per capita income levels in Hing’an, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region), it shows that this method performs well against two other frequently used

  • Adsorption characteristics of modified sand for the removal of hexavalent chromium ions from aqueous solutions : Kinetic, thermodynamic and equilibrium studies
  • The aim of this study is to investigate the removal of Cr(VI) from aqueous solutions by using modified sand as adsorbent. The sand samples were collected from shallow waters near the riverbank from the river Subernarekha, Jarkhand, India
  • and temperature on removal of Cr(VI) was investigated. Kinetics of removal process was studied by applying pseudo-first order and pseudo-second order models. The results obtained in this study show the modified sand to be a better adsorbent for removal of Cr(VI)

  • Landslide-induced changes of vessel shape in Betula pendula Roth. : a preliminary study
  • Goal of this study was to analyze vessel lumen length (LL) and width (LW) change on 49 microsections prepared from 15 landslide-disturbed-birches, because very little is known yet about change of the shape characteristics of vessels of Betula

  • Placing livestock in landscape studies : pastures new or out to graze?
  • The paper reviews research on livestock and landscape. It argues that farm animals have started to occupy a central position in landscape studies, opening up many new pastures for research. Using the example of cattle in the UK, the AA. consider how

  • , it demonstrates that the charges against the world city and global city concepts as paradigmatic, peripheralizing, and normative are rebutted and argues for the necessity of a provincial and comparative approach to urban studies.
