  • Australia ; Flow ; Irrigation ; Ontology ; River management ; Rural life ; Stream ; Sustainable development ; Victoria ; Water management
  • The A. considers what it might be to do sustainable management through a case study of the Goulburn River in southern Australia. She attends to sustainable management as ontological work and tells of irrigation water and environmental water
  • as emergent in particular gathering of practices, technologies, and stories af river management and rural life. Ontological cleaving is performed. The paper contributes to the consideration of how ontological difference is managed and extends recent work

  • Aeolian sediment transport and morphologic change on a managed and an unmanaged foredune
  • Sediment transport and short-term morphologic change were evaluated at a site where sand fences are deployed and the beach is raked (Managed Site) and a site where these human adjustments are not practiced (Unmanaged Site). Data were gathered across
  • moisture and speed-up of the wind passing over the foredune. The Unmanaged Site had deposition at the dune toe, erosion at mid-slope, and deposition at the crest. Deposition occurred at mid-slope on the Managed Site near a partially buried fence. Deposition
  • at partially buried wrack on the upper backshore and dune toe at the Unmanaged Site was about twice as great as deposition in this zone at the Managed Site. Evaluation of alternative configurations of fences and strategies for managing wrack is required

  • Shared space and the post-politics of environmental change
  • This article analyses the shared space and the post-politics of environmental change through the example of vision-impaired people in London. It shows that their diverse needs are barely recognised or given a platform to influence shared space

  • Shared practice and converging views in nuclear waste management : long-term relations between implementer and regulator in Sweden
  • Based on a review of the implementer’s Research, Development and Demonstration programmes, the management and disposal of nuclear waste and interviews with representatives of the implementer, regulator, and NGOs, this paper analyses the outcomes
  • of these long-term interactions. It then discusses the potentially serious problems this creates in relation to knowledge production in the planning and environmental impact assessment process and problems now the regulator is set to review the final application
  • . The tendency of the values and priorities of implementer and regulator to converge over time, due to sustained social interaction, is a new phenomenon, which could not only impede the safety of nuclear waste management, but also risks occurring in other
