  • EDSS is a comprehensive software system for water quality management in tidal river networks in general and for the Pearl River Delta in particular. By combining the capabilities of geographical information system (GIS), database management system
  • (DBMS), model base management system (MBMS) and expert system, the aim is to improve the quality of decision making in what is becoming an increasingly complex area. This paper first outlines the basic concepts and philosophy adopted in developing EDSS

  • These essays are offered as a contribution to the ongoing scholarly discourse concerned with environmental problems in East Central Europe. The papers indicate the nature of environmental challenge and ways in which progress is being made
  • by negociating sustainability in a range of local situations. They provide ethnographically-detailed case studies of local environmental transformations in eight different countries. The AA. develop the central idea that the macrosociological oversimplifications

  • Landscape sensitivity may be discussed in terms of the response of landscape systems to pertubation on different time and spatial scales. Although we are increasingly able to model the present, environmental management is dominantly about conserving
  • inherited properties of landscapes : forests, soils, floodplains, coastlines. Landscape sensitivity for landscape management must, therefore, adress not only active, largely nonlinear, environmental systems, but also the mosaics and palimpsests

  • The role of Quaternary environmental change in the evolution of landscapes : case studies from southern Africa
  • coastal areas. These results can be used in the better management of contemporary ad future environmental conditions.
  • This paper begins by examining the importance of southern African Quaternary environmental change. The Quaternary also represents the time period during which people have become a dominant environmental agent in the subcontinent. Two case studies

  • Because of geography's tradition in studying human-environmental interaction, one would expect the discipline to play a strong role in environmental and resource study programs in western universities ; however, that is not the case. A. reviews

  • Coastal sensitivity to environmental change : a view from the beach
  • initiated a process of internal re-organisation that, because of an inherent sensitivity to sea level change and low thresholds for the forcing of change, fundamentally restricts future management options. The paper also attempts to show that hard rock
  • coasts are also responsive to particular types of event on short time scales and examples are discussed that modify the accepted view of hard rock insensitivity to environmental change.
