  • High mountain geomorphology
  • Avalanche ; Canada ; Climatic variation ; Ecology ; Environmental conservation ; Geo-ecology ; Geomorphology ; Global change ; High mountain ; Mountain ; Natural hazards
  • It is suggested that the global sustainability debate would benefit from more active participation by geomorphologists and that geomorphology would itself benefit by embracing sustainable development research more explicitly. Agenda 21's action
  • programs, comprising 40 priority research areas, is seen to require geomorphological expertise; it is also argued that solutions to the identified problems can only be anticipated through interdisciplinary collaboration.

  • Geomorphological survey for mass-movement hazard assessment
  • Earthquake ; Geomorphological mapping ; Heavy rain ; Japan ; Landslide ; Mass movement ; Mountain ; Natural hazards ; Slope dynamics ; Volcano
  • Geomorphological survey is very useful for hazard assessment of mountainous area. This paper deals with basic ideas and mapping method of mass-movement hazard assessment survey from the geomorphological viewpoint.

  • Palaeochannels on the North China Plain: palaeoriver geomorphology
  • Variations in the geomorphology of the North China Plain are related to differences between river deposits. The river deposits from different periods form the various geomorphological features; different combinations of palaeochannels form different
  • geomorphological regions; different kinds of palaeochannels form different kinds of micro-geomorphology. In this paper, the AA. divide the area into geomorphological bodies. It also has significance for economic development.

  • Geomorphological zoning for flood inundation using satellite data
  • The AA. investigated geomorphological features on the central plain of Thailand utilizing satellite remote sensing data and made geomorphological land classification map showing flood-stricken area. This map is useful for planning of flood control
  • works. The AA. classified land form units in the central plain of Thailand as following; delta, tidal flat, lagoon, mud spit, back marsh, natural levee, fan and former river course and so on. After that they transfer geomorphological land classification

  • Geomorphological studies involving river reconnaissance, analysis (both qualitative and quantitative) and assessment can supply information on the form and physical processes operating in a fluvial system. This information is of value to river
  • engineers and managers wishing to work with, rather than against, nature when undertaking engineering and maintenance operations or devising management policies. The utility of geomorphological river reconnaissance is illustrated using a case study from

  • This paper presents arguments to demonstrate: 1) that reconnaissance surveys are the only viable source of relevant geomorphological data for many projects; 2) that reconnaissance complements other components of integrated and multidisciplinary
  • afforded to the discipline of geomorphology by the surveys. Finally, comments are made on the potential for developing standardized approaches.
