  • Following M. Foucault on eventalisation and H.M. Gumbrecht on presence-events, the A. focuses on subcultural and subpolitical groups trying to capture urban commercial spaces and to reverse or reveal their symbolic meaning. Using the oppositional
  • youth group Pirate Parties in Denmark, he argues that the eventalisation and the presence quality of space make events a desired experience and the qualities of the presence-experience more desired than the political content of the event.

  • Factors controlling hydro-sedimentary response during runoff events in a rural catchment in the humid Spanish zone
  • Using a dataset comprising 3 hydrological years (2004/05–2006/07) in the Corbeira catchment (Galicia), the relationships between rainfall, runoff and suspended sediment (SS) are analysed at event scale. The catchment was instrumented to measure
  • rainfall, water level and SS in the stream. Several event (rainfall, discharge and SS concentration and load) and pre-event (rainfall and discharge) variables were calculated for all the events analysed. Correlation matrices were developed using these data
  • . Discharge characteristics and rainfall depth showed good correlations with SS concentration and load. Suspended sediment and discharge relationships were also examined. In most of the events, the SS peak preceded peak discharge (clockwise hysteresis

  • The AA. examine the sediment yield from a rural catchment, located in Galicia, by measuring suspended sediments during rainfall events. Within the catchment regular surveys were conducted to obtain data on the suspended sediment sources. Important
  • variations in sediment load were detected at event scale. To study the variables controlling suspended sediment yield during the events in the catchment, several event and pre-event variables were calculated for all events. The sediment load is strongly
  • influenced by discharge variables. During the events discharge–suspended sediments were also analysed. When the soil surface was unprotected, the formation of rills and ephemeral gullies on agricultural land at the catchment head was an important source

  • Evaluating the significance of event and post-event sediment dynamics in a first order tributary using multiple sediment budgets
  • This paper examined the impact of a hillslope failure on a headwater channel system in the UK uplands, Wet Swine Gill in the northern Lake District. The primary aim was to account for sediment transfer in the failure event and post-event sediment

  • Historical floods and a recent extreme rainfall event in the Murgia karstic environment (Southern Italy)
  • of analyses were used : the historical analysis, the hydrological analysis and the geomorphological analysis. The hydro-geomorphological analyses showed the peculiarities of the 2005 flood event. The maximum rainfall return period for the 2005 event was due

  • This study examines the record of high-palaeoflow phases in river systems in northwest Europe, investigating their causes (whether due to ‘unique’ events, such as the formation of the Dover Strait, or as ‘characteristic’ consequences of climate
  • change), examining their consequences with regard to landscape evolution and possible effects on climate, and determining the chronology of key events. Large-magnitude palaeoflows, more than an order-of-magnitude larger than present-day flood peaks
  • , are shown to be characteristic of rivers in this region at particular times within the Pleistocene. These events, the most recent of which were during Heinrich events, were evidently caused by the combined effects of glacial outwash, rainfall, snowmelt

  • Synoptic classification of snowfall events in the Great Smoky Mountains,USA
  • In this paper, the AA. manually classify all snowfall events during the period 1991 to 2004 according to a synoptic classification scheme, calculate mean annual snowfall by 850 hPa wind direction and synoptic class, and develop composite plots
  • of various synoptic fields. Hourly observations from nearby first-order stations and 24 hr snowfall totals from 5 sites within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) are used to define snowfall events. NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data are used to develop

  • In this paper statistics for the ages, the depositional scale and elevations, and the accumulation localities of the coastal dune rocks are used to compare with environmental events attributed to the change of sea level and climate in the Holocene
  • period in South China. The response of the rock formation processes to the environmental events is clearly shown by the comparison which can be an easy explanation for the unsolved problems in the study of the coastal dune rocks in South China.

  • A data base of documented sediment-transporting events in torrent catchments of Austria, Switzerland and northern Italy has been compiled, using common classification techniques. With this data the AA. test an empirical approach between planimetric

  • Through a study based on historical climate data, some of the adverse effects of the storm are described and some of the possible causes are discussed. The main goal of this work is to establish an approximate reconstruction of this historical event
  • which will allow us to compare it to a recent meteorological event that had a great impact on the archipelago: “Tropical Storm Delta”, in November 2005. Studying and reviewing the origin of the 1826 storm verifies the hypothesis that extremely violent
  • perturbations have not only occurred in the Canaries on other occasions, but that these past events were also more intense and had more serious consequences than Delta. Therefore, the idea that other tropical perturbations have occurred in the region
