  • An observational study of summertime ice formation a the Ice Valley in Milyang, Korea
  • Air temperature ; Geophysics ; Glaciology ; Ice ; Seasonal variation ; Soil moisture ; South Korea ; Summer ; Temperature ; Valley ; Wind speed
  • Ice Valley at Milyang is a famous summer resort in that natural ice freezes during hot season from early April to late August along a mountain slope. The results of observations during June 3 to 5, 1997, support the selective convection theory
  • in winter and summer as a thermal filter for the ice formation. However, the detail of the mysterious behavior of Ice Valley's ice remains unveiled.

  • Women of the high pastures and the global economy : reflections on the impacts of modernization in the Hushe Valley of the Karakorum, Northern Pakistan
  • In this Karakorum-Himalaya valley, the women do all the subsistence work : household, farming, pasturing, and selling of any surplus production. the men leave the valley for work in the plains or as porters for mountaineering expeditions. The men

  • Fluctuations of outlet and valley glaciers in the Southern Andes (Argentina) during the past 13,000 years
  • In the southern Argentine Andes, ten advances of valleys glaciers were used to reconstruct the late-glacial and Holocene glacier history. The accumulation areas of these glaciers lie in the Precordillera and are thus independent of fluctuations
  • of the South Patagonian Icefield (SPI). This paper discusses the number, age, and extent of these valley glacier advances during the late-glacial and postglacial intervals.

  • Landslide development in a coastal valley in Northern Spain : conditioning factors and temporal occurrence
  • Cantabria ; Climatic variation ; Geochronology ; Geomorphometry ; Landslide ; Lithology ; Mountain ; Quaternary ; Spain ; Spatial distribution ; Typology ; Valley
  • The aims of this paper are : to establish the features and the spatial distribution of landslides in the coastal Asturian valley of the Meredal River; to build a chronological model of the temporal sequences of landslides; to set up the causes

  • Evidence of lower-atmospheric ozone sloshing in an urbanized valley
  • Aerosol ; Arizona ; Atmosphere ; Atmospheric circulation ; Ozone ; Pollution ; Summer ; United States of America ; Urban area ; Valley ; Weather type
  • The aim of this research was to reveal evidence of the complete diurnal process by which high concentrations of lower-atmospheric ozone are typically transported across the Phoenix (Arizona) Valley. The spatial and temporal patterns of diurnal
  • transports of ozone produced a sloshing of the aerosol along the eastern side of the valley basin, affecting the eastern metropolitan population twice daily.

  • Distribution of glaciofluvial sediment within and on the surface of a high arctic valley glacier : Marthabreen, Svalbard
  • The aim of this paper is to describe the mechanisms of entrainment, transport and release of glaciofluvial sediment at the high arctic valley glacier Marthabreen (Svalbard), and to outline the ice-deformational processes that determine

  • During pluvial periods of the late Quaternary, Death Valley was occupied by a lake, called Lake Manly. The most prominent shoreline of this lake is that of the Blackwelder stand, 90 m above sea level. The Mesquite Spring and Salt Spring Hills
  • shorelines were probably formed by the Blackwelder stand and subsequently displaced , tectonically, due to transpression in the northeastern Mojave Desert and NW-SE extension across Death Valley. This tectonic regime would result in subsidence of Death Valley

  • Relief inversion in the Avrona playa as evidence of large-magnitude historical earthquakes, southern Arava Valley, Dead Sea Rift
  • This study aims to detect the youngest surface ruptures in the southern Arava Valley and to subject them to paleoseismologic analysis in order to further constrain the recurrence intervals and magnitudes of prehistoric earthquakes in this region

  • Lateglacial river sediment budgets in the Maas valley, the Netherlands
  • Braided channel ; Channel geometry ; Climatic variation ; Fluvial processes ; Fluvial terrace ; Geographical information system ; Lateglacial ; Meander ; Netherlands (The) ; Sediment budget ; Valley
  • Lateglacial (13-10 ka) terraces have been distinguished in the Maas valley. Using a geographical information system, it will be shown that the fluvial development of the Maas can be explained not only by climate-related external factors such as sediment

  • Long-term rates of denudation in the Dry Valleys, Transantarctic Mountains, southern Victoria Land, Antarctica based on in-situ-produced cosmogenic 21Ne
  • Antarctica ; Erosion rate ; Geochronology ; Ice sheet ; Isotope analysis ; Palaeogeography ; Pliocene ; Pyroclastic ; Quaternary ; Slope gradient ; Valley ; Victoria
  • Concentrations of cosmogenic 21Ne measured in quartz have been used to estimate long-term rates of denudation for contrasting landscape components in the Dry Valleys area. Samples of Beacon Supergroup sandstones and granitic basement were collected
  • with the preservation of volcanic deposits dating back to the mid-Miocene, these 21Ne data demonstrate that only minimal modification of the landscape has occurred in the Dry Valleys over at least the past 15 Ma.

  • A geo-environmental map for the sustainable development of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal
  • In the Kathmandu Valley, the major geo-environmental problems arise from haphazard exploitation of geologic resources, local landslide zones, severe problems of garbage disposal, river flooding and a dramatic river pollution. The map was prepared

  • Alluvial fan and catchment initiation by rock avalanching, Owens Valley, California
  • The North Long John alluvial fan of the Inyo Mountains piedmont, Owens Valley, was catastrophically initiated by a prehistoric (early Holocene?) rock avalanche. The key implication of this study is that not all fans of a particular piedmont
