  • The geomorphology of the Dolomites from a geomorphodiversity viewpoint
  • Alps (The) ; Geomorphodiversity ; Geomorphology ; Geomorphosite ; Inheritated geomorphological features ; Italy ; Mountain ; Natural heritage ; UNESCO
  • The Dolomites make up an important geo-heritage that can be considered as a high-altitude field laboratory for research and development of geomorphological theories and understanding. The A. stresses that on June 26th 2009 the Dolomites were
  • included in the World Heritage List because of their scientific importance from the geological and geomorphological point of view, together with their exceptional beauty and unique landscape. Furthermore, this inclusion is an important scientific goal
  • and an event which stimulates in-depth studies, discussions and assessment of investigations and theories in the field of Geomorphology. - (NF)

  • Loss of natural heritage from the geomorphological perspective : do geomorphic processes shape or destroy the natural heritage ?
  • This study deals with geomorphological natural features (geomorphosites) relative to the natural processes that create, shape, or destroy such features. As a rule, geomorphologic processes are geographical constants in the landscape although some

  • Geomorphodiversity is a critical and specific assessment of geomorphological features of a territory. The AA. characterize the geomorphodiversity of the Czech Republic that is situated in Central Europe in the complex contact zone of the old West
  • -European Platform and the young Carpathians Mountains. The results of the research project carried out by the AA. in the frame of publication of a digital Landscape Atlas of the Czech Republic in 2009 are the digital geomorphological information system
  • (geomorphological data-base) and GIS-based geomorphological map of the Czech Republic. The content of the paper is a computer supported quantitative evaluation of the geomorphodiversity of the territory using the geomorphological data-base of above mentioned GIS

  • Relationship between geomorphology, neotectonics and earthquakes in the Danube Plain between Ercsi and Madocsa and on the Danube-Tisza Interfluve
  • Danube ; Geochronology ; Geomorphology ; Hungary ; Lithostratigraphy ; Neotectonics ; Palaeogeography ; Plain ; Seismicity ; Subsidence ; Thematic map
  • Investigations into interrelationships between geomorphology, neotectonics and seismicity in the Danube Plain and in the northern part of the Danube-Tisza Interfluve bear importance due to the socio-economic significance of these landscapes
  • . The results have been represented in thematic maps, where landscape boundaries based on genetic notions coincided with neotectonic fault lines in several places. In order to make geomorphological and tectonic models correct the geological sediments of the high
  • bluff of the Danube were analysed palaeogeomorphologically, lithostratigraphically, chronologically and sedimentologically. The most important fault lines and areas of subsidence were singled out according to geomorphological and seismological features

  • Geomorphology and cultural heritage of the Ponci Valley (Finalese karstic area, Ligurian Alps)
  • The Finalese is an area of great geomorphological and cultural value, with major scientific, landscape, socio-economic, and historical features that offer opportunities for investigating the relationships between issues concerning geodiversity
  • and land use. This paper presents the geomorphological and environmental profile of the Ponci Valley, which is located in the Finale Ligure (Savona) hinterland, and its relationship with the presence of some artefacts of Roman age (13-12 B.C.). This site
  • has geomorphological, environmental, and archaeological value and in all it can be acknowledged as a geosite of Mediterranean importance. Thereby it represents an asset of high cultural and landscape value for which protection and enhancement measures

  • Modern geomorphological environment research during rapid urbanization in Shenzhen east coastal zone
  • China ; Coastal environment ; Coastal geomorphology ; Digital elevation model ; Geographical information system ; Geological structure ; Global Positioning System ; Guangdong ; Remote sensing ; Sustainable development ; Urbanization ; Vegetation
  • This paper examines the Shenzhen east coastal zone as a case strongly influenced by urban expansion. The AA. use modern geomorphological theory and methods, along with GIS and RS techniques, to reveal key characteristics of the geomorphological
  • environment and landform classification. Furthermore, coastal ecosystem evaluation and regional resources sustainable utilization should be considered relative to the corresponding geomorphological environment. Based on this study, they conclude that modern
  • geomorphological theory and methods, supported by “3S” techniques including GIS, RS and GPS, can play an important role in resolving the environment, resources and population problems as well as sustainable development challenges facing humankind at present.
