  • Air circulation in deep fractures and the temperature field of an alpine rock slope
  • In this study, the AA. address the impact of air and water fracture flow on the temperature field of an alpine rock slope at 2400 m a.s.l. in southern Switzerland. They first approximate the conductive temperature field based on distributed

  • This study aims to quantify the extent to which such increased mineralization occurs in a real field situation. Carbon dioxide (CO2)-efflux was measured in the field after an important erosion event for a continuous period of 112 days. The specific
  • situation on the field ensured that almost none of eroded SOC was exported from the field. Field data were complemented by measurements on incubated, undisturbed soil core samples, in order to disentangle the contribution of environmental factors (moisture
  • , temperature) from any erosional effect on CO2-efflux. Results of these measurements on the field showed that CO2-efflux was regulated by a complex interplay of different factors (mostly soil porosity, soil moisture and soil temperature). In combination

  • Spatiotemporal budgeting of soil erosion in the abandoned fields area of the “Rahnstätter Hof” near Michelbach (Taunus Mts., Western Germany)
  • This interdisciplinary study comprises archaeological findings as well as historical records. The “Rahnstätter Hof” manor of 82 ha of fields, meadows and forests was abandoned in 1870. The total amount of soil erosion on the former farmland has been
  • to intensified agriculture by the improved three-field crop rotation system and the overexploitation of forest lands in the pre-industrial era. A gully system studied was found to have developed since Early Medieval times. Soil erosion was found not to have
  • calculated, 65% of it as sheet erosion, the remaining 27% as gully erosion, leading to the deposition of colluvium on and behind field balks and of colluvial filling in small valleys. Soil erosion mainly took place during the Early Modern Era, in response

  • The value of single-site ethnography in the global era : studying transnational experiences in the migrant house
  • The aim of the paper is to show the value of doing single-site ethnography in the field of transmigration studies. It concentrates on migrants' personal experiences of living in-between two countries. The A. shows how both the relationality
  • and emotionality of transnational experiences can be studied in one place : the migrant house.

  • In this study the results of field-based geomorphological mapping and results obtained with the use of geoinformatic tools were compared. In the field, the relief forms were determined with the use of geomorphological mapping, whereas two
  • geoinformation tools were used in computer analysis: the method of comparison of smoothed digital elevation model with the original and the method of Surface Specific Points. The analysis was conducted on a 3.16 km2 large study area in SE Slovenia. - (IKR)

  • Field observations of infragravity waves and their behaviour on rock shore platforms
  • Infragravity wave (IGW) transformation was quantified from field measurements on 2 shore platforms on New Zealand's east coast (Oraka and Rothesay Bay). The observed increase in IGW height over the platform during both experiments is attributed
  • in water level at the cliff toe during high tide. Results from this study show the first measurements of IGWs on shore platforms and identify long wave motion a significant process in a morphodynamic understanding of rock coast.

  • This study was conducted on traditional cultivated fields in Niger, i.e. in conditions representative of the quantities and distribution of crop residues that are actually observed in the studied zone. The aim of this study is to quantify the amount
  • of crop residues in traditional Sahelian fields and to determine its impact on wind erosion throughout the seasonal cycle, by monitoring the erosion flux and crop residues amount over several years.
