  • statistic that quantifies hotspot areas of fire risk has been used to identify statistically significant fire clusters during the ten-year time period. To assess the causative factors of fires, topographic, vegetation, climatic, anthropogenic
  • and accessibility factors were used in a multivariate statistical framework. Results suggested a clear variation in hotspots of fire occurences among districts.

  • Morphological analysis of the Sudd region using land survey and remote sensing data
  • remote sensing, field survey and historical sources were correlated and correction factors established; the SRTM was found to be partly unsuitable for further assessments. Further analysis of remote sensing data was used to investigate the Sudd's inland
  • An analysis of the vast wetland of the Sudd swamps in southern Sudan was designed to assess and describe interdependencies between morphology and hydrology. Findings based on field survey and remote sensing data include an assessment of the effect
  • of ground slopes and morphological features on spill and flooding of the seasonally flooded grasslands. Through bathymetric surveys and analysis of Landsat images, depth profiles and cross-sectional depth and flow distributions were established. Data from

  • The main aim of this paper is analysis of regional differences in agricultural land afforestation in Poland by voivodeship in the years 2000-2006. The article presents intensity and dynamics of this process. The factors contributing to the changes
  • are largely identified as socio-economic. There was also a correlation analysis performed to determine the role of protected areas in distribution of afforestations. The special significance of afforestation lies in the fact that it sustains and reinforces

  • This county has undergone changes resulting in shifts within the regional agricultural economy. The dramatic decline in cotton has prompted the question. The research employs a methodology that combines macro-scale analysis with interviews of cotton
  • farmers. Pressure from the expansion of Phoenix is identified as a driver of this land use change. Several micro-scale factors are important.

  • erosion and the statistical analysis showed that these fields had significantly steeper slopes, were terraced and had cereals as previous land use. Factors that increase the risk of terrace failure were land abandonment, steeper terrace slope, loam texture
  • . At catchment scale all abandonned fields were surveyed and characteristics of each field were described. Additionally the AA. surveyed abandonned and cultivated terraces and used statistical analyses to determine the factors that influence terrace failure

  • The aim of this research was to propose a four-staged procedure by combining several multivariate statistical techniques to detect the relationships between vegetation and soil and topography, and thereby identify the key factors for the degraded
  • ecosystem restoration and management. Forty-three plots were selected for the field survey of the vegetation, soil and topography variables in the dry warm river valley of the upper Minjiang River, Sichuan Province, China. Cluster analysis demonstrated
  • that high plant diversity, cover and height were associated with good soil quality and favorable topographic positions with lower solar incident radiation, runoff and soil erosion potential.Correlation analysis and multiple linear stepwise regression
  • analysis affirmed that plant diversity was mainly correlated with soil water content, and soil water content was mainly determined by soil texture (clay content). Identifying the favorable topographic position and the distribution pattern of soil texture

  • . Due to some limiting factors there were 18 out of 36 mountain huts suitable to be included in the research. In this paper the priorities in the process of solving hydro-ecological problems with the use of constructed wetlands are stated, based
  • on the evaluation of the degree of vulnerability. The analysis shows that present draining and purifying wastewater is not in compliance with the law at none of the mountain huts. This problem can only be solved efficiently by building the constructed wetlands at 12

  • This work analyses the viability of photogrammetry for the determination of the spatial-temporal changes of a coastal parabolic dune. Two factors have been analysed : first, the comparison of the photogrammetric results with the results obtained
  • from topographic methods (total station and GPS), and second, the quantification of the displacement of the dune system. The analysis of the correspondence between the movement of different parts of the dune and the influence of the intensity
