  • Geomorphological analysis of the Stožecká hornatina (Mountains)
  • Czech Republic ; Geomorphology ; Mountain
  • A complex geomorphological analysis of the relief of Stožecká hornatina Mts (Šumava). The structural relief features and a high number of cryogenous forms give to that territory an original geomorphological character, which is only seldom

  • Geomorphological conservation and public policy in England : a geomorphological critique of English Nature's Natural Areas approach
  • England ; Environment ; Environmental management ; Geomorphology ; Land use ; Landscape dynamics ; Nature reserve ; United Kingdom ; Web site
  • This paper reviews the geomorphological content of the 120 Natural Area Profiles, eight regional summaries and the relevant pages of the English Nature web site. It concludes that wildlife conservation, which dominates the profiles, has fully
  • grasped the principles of conservation in the wider countryside, but geomorphological conservation has largely missed the opportunities provided. What is needed is a strengthening of geomorphological/Quaternary conservation with English Nature and its
  • Local Area Teams, a more detailed approach to geomorphological description of the Natural Areas which recognizes landform evolution, landform character and sensititvity to change, and improved links between geomorphology and the land-use planning system.

  • On reductionism and emergence in geomorphology
  • Concept ; Determinism ; Geomorphology ; Geophysics ; Landscape ; Model ; Philosophy
  • This paper examines the philosophical, theoretical and practical problems involved in bridging the gap between studies of geomorphological processes and explanations of landscape development. It argues that process geomorphology is essentially

  • The aim of this paper is to compare and contrast available geomorphological, cartographic, satellite, archaeological and historical data, in order to locate precisely and date former river channels and former deltaic mouths. The AA. also present
  • a comprehensive dynamic geomorphological account of the development of the deltas since the 7th century BC. From the end of the 16th century, an acceleration of the processes of changes in the river courses and progression of the deltas can be detected, affecting

  • Geomorphological evidence for fluvial change during the Roman period in the lower Rhone valley (southern France)
  • The hydrological and geomorphological dynamics of the lower Rhone river are studied during the Roman period. The crossing of archaeological and radiocarbon dating methods allow to study events at a pluridecadal to centennial scale. Therefore the AA
