  • Stud farming in the Hunter Valley: expansion and restructuring in the equine industry
  • Focusing on this valley of New South Wales, it is suggested that horse breeding has been a target for capital investment by entrepreneurs seeking to maximise returns on profits derived from other economic sectors. The role of favourable taxation

  • Examination of seasonal pastoral migrations to alpine pastures in a valley of the northwestern Himalaya shows that increases in human population and livestock numbers are putting severe pressures on the traditional agropastoral system. - (DWG)

  • Population change in the upper Braldu Valley, Baltistan, 1900-1990: all is not as it seems
  • Demographic change ; Demographic structure ; Depopulation ; Himalaya ; Infant mortality ; Karokoram ; Local economy ; Mountain ; Pakistan ; Valley ; Village
  • Due mainly to high child mortality, population in the upper Braldu valley of the Karakoram range in northern Pakistan declined between 1900 and 1990. This trend is counter to the growth elsewhere in the Himalayan region. - (DWG)

  • Much controversy exists in literature concerning the processes by which tunnel valleys evolve, and a number of theories now exist in this regard. This article aims to evaluate critically the literature on tunnel valleys, focusing specifically
  • on the major theories which attempt to explain their formation. Before doing so, however, it summarizes salient aspects of tunnel valley geomorphology, and the sedimentology of their infills. Tunnel valleys incised into both bedrock and unconsolidated sediments

  • and postglacial development of valley systems. The morphology of mixed-type valleys is highly persistent, as it had developed before and was maintained during the Upper Pleistocene. The topographic position of these valleys and their fills can be used

  • Groundwater sapping and valley development in the Hackness Hills, North Yorkshire, England
  • Clay mineral ; Drainage network ; England ; Erosion ; Geomorphogenesis ; Groundwater ; Lithology ; Mineralogy ; Temperate zone ; United Kingdom ; Valley ; Yorkshire
  • This paper presents the first study of valley development in the Hackness Hills and, through an analysis of the links between lithological variation and valley morphology, suggests that groundwater sapping processes played a major role in valley

  • Longitudinal profile evolution of valleys on coastal terraces under the compound influence of eustasy, tectonism and marine erosion

  • On the coast of Tosa Bay, Southwestern Japan, there is a wide coastal terrace which was formed in the Last Interglacial and has been uplifted to altitudes of 150-200 m above the present sea level by crustal movement. Many valleys dissect the terrace
  • surface with upwardly convex profiles in downstream reaches. Numerical simulations were conducted to investigate the development of longitudinal profiles of the valleys under the influence of baselevel change and marine erosion. The profiles obtained from
  • the calculation fit quite closely to actual valley profiles, which demonstrate the validity of the equation.

  • An empirical evaluation of glacial trough cross-section shape is performed on seven vertical cross-sections in three Sierra Nevada valleys glaciated during the late Quaternary. Therefore, this study utilizes a datum at the upper valley wall where

  • Contemporary climatic changes occur on global, regional and local scales. The climate of the Raba River valley in the period 1971-1992 is presented as an example of the changes that can take place in the character and structure of a local climate
  • . The regional scale trends of air temperature changes for the Carpathian Foothills are presented along with local scale transformation of climatic relations in the Foothill valleys produced by the construction of a reservoir. It is also demonstrated how
