  • Geomorphological events and landform change. The Centenary Lecture to the Department of Geography, University of Heidelberg
  • was a precursor and has considerable importance for geomorphology, even though he exaggerated the effect of the sea, and underestimated valley formation to an inhibiting degree. The A. then studies the nature of event geomorphology (the nature of processes, event

  • Atmospheric circulation patterns associated with heavy snowfall events: Bridger bowl, Montana, U.S.A.
  • This case study examines synoptic circulation patterns associated with daily snowfall events. Abnormally heavy snowfall occurs at this site in the Montana Rockies with strong northwesterly flow at the back side of a trough. - (DWG)
  • 1996
  • Magnitude and frequency of bedload transport was examined in the Lainbach River, Bavaria, using magnetically tagged particles in the summers of 1988 to 1992, during which 18 small to moderate events and one major event occurred. These data present
  • an opportunity to study the relation between the frequency and magnitude of sediment transport and major channel-forming events.

  • Infiltration, runoff and erosion characteristics of agricultural land in extreme storm events, SE France
  • Following the extreme rainfall event of 22 September 1992 in Southeastern France, an attempt was made to characterize the response of areas cultivated under vines to heavy precipitation. This response was determined in threeways by means of rainfall

  • This paper examines the influence of El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) warm and cold events on the average monthly maximum and minimum as well as mean temperatures at 88 stations across the Southeast during 1931-1994. Composite time series
  • for the 24-month period from july prior to a warm- or cold-event year (year -1) to june following a warm- or cold-event year (year +1) are examined. The role of cloud cover is studied in relation to the temperature response to ENSO.

  • Dust events in the Mojave Desert characteristically occur during the winter to spring months (February-May), associated with dry frontal activity, and are largely absent during the dry summer months. The Colorado Desert experiences a similar
  • seasonal distribution of dust events, but has more summer events, usually associated with convective thunderstorms. Frequencies of blowing dust have weak, but statistically significant, correlations with mean annual and antecedent precipitation, suggesting

  • Palynological and radiocarbon evidence for deglaciation events in the Green Bay lobe, Wisconsin
  • 1996
  • This paper examines the pattern of discharge and sediment concentration along a 1052 km reach of the Murrumbidgee River during two major flood events, and compare the observed pattern with that of Heidel (1956). Floods on the river are concentrated
  • in winter and spring. The impact of regulation on flood events varies according to their magnitude.

  • The Late Cenozoic landform development history of east Africa is explained insufficiently by the available landform genesis concepts. Late Cenozoic plain formation in East Africa was an episodic event caused by contemporaneous erosion and deposition
  • near base level. It is therefore proposed to elaborate the etchplanation concept with fluvial dynamics. Late Cenozoic planation events in East Africa were triggered by a major base level rise due to the combined effects of eustatic sea level rise

  • The influence of a climatic event on a glacial system includes the synchronous and epichronous components and lasts during the relaxation time, until the ice formed during the event remains the component of the system. The relationships developed

  • within the catchment, and spatio-temporal characteristics of rainfall events on model predictions is examined. This is achieved by applying a distributed runoff-erosion model to a 6.73 km2 catchment with a dense recording raingauge network in an area
  • dominated by convective air-mass rainfall events and infiltration-excess overland flow mechanisms.

  • and extent of past geomorphic changes. Examples are presented to illustrate how trees record Quaternary events, to emphasize the importance of tree-ring crossdating in the determination of precise calendar dates of events and, to show the utility of tree

  • The characteristics of composite suspended sediment particles transported during storm events in the river Exe, Devon, U.K.

  • The aims of this paper are to describe the nature of the peat failures from this subantarctic environment, to examines the roles that rainfall and seimic activity play in their initiation, and to look at the longer term significance of these events

  • Measurements of temperature above and below ground, vapor pressure, radiation and rainfall revealed a drought which placed water stress on plants on this mountain in southeast Asia. The el niño event was possibly not the only cause of the drought

  • Topics include: a) changing regional responses to political events in American history; b) state and local political geography; c) representation and gerrymandering; d) U.S. and the world; e) post-cold war changes; f) presidential politics
  • 1996
  • Describes a simple field method for rapidly estimating the lower limit of soil erosion where sediment is deposited below the erosion site. The method is most useful when the erosion is triggered by a single event, when a similar nearby control

  • Beach-rock development is based on successive stages of microbial activity, crystal growth, mechanical and biological erosion, etc. The combined study of such events could be a helpful way to recognize and differentiate shoreline variations.

  • The paper deals with the following subjects : 1. Thawing of permafrost landscapes and changes in soil development 2. Ecological aspects of permafrost change 3. Reconstruction of holocene events - learning from the past. - (MT)
