  • The post to late glacial valley reconstruction on the Haramosh north side (Mani, Baska and Phuparash valleys)
  • Asia ; Glacial features ; Glacial valley ; Karokoram ; Lateral moraine ; Palaeo-environment ; Postglacial
  • The history of the landscape of the Haramosh valley is linked with the former glaciation history of the Indus Valley. The extent of the former glaciers Mani, Baska and Phuparash according to their glacio-geomorphic position, their snow line
  • depression and relative age classification, using the method of Kuhle, is reported in this article. A high glacial ice filling of the Haramosh valley and glacial erosion of the flat top of the Darchan ridge as an intermediate valley head is strongly probable.

  • Channel geometry ; China ; Comparative study ; Cross section ; Glacial features ; Glacial valley ; Mathematical model ; Model ; River bed ; Tien Shan
  • The purpose of this paper is to use the power law or quadratic equations in studying the morphology of glacial valley cross-sections in the middle and western Tian Shan Mountains, to further examine the evolution patterns of glacial valley form

  • Landform and vegetation change in the Greaves Creek Basin : an asymmetric hanging valley in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales
  • Greaves Creek has cut a hanging valley through the entire Triassic sandstone sequence near Blackheath in the western Blue Mountains. The course of the creek is related to joint directions. Topographic asymmetry expressed as unequal slopes
  • of the valley sides is related to differential insolation, erosion, vegetation cover, bioturbation and fire intensity. Vegetation structure and floristics within Greaves Creek valley are related to physiography of the valley and to aspect through their effects

  • Geomorphological evidence for fluvial change during the Roman period in the lower Rhone valley (southern France)
  • . analyse the palaeohydrological functioning of the lower Rhone valley between the 2nd century BC and the 2nd century AD as well as discuss its palaeoclimatic significance in relation to the upper and middle river valley.

  • Polygenetic vertisols of the Purna Valley of central India
  • The AA. attempt to relate the distinctly different morphological features of the vertisols in the southwestern and northeastern parts of the Purna Valley to their genesis on the basis of existing physical, chemical, mineralogical
  • and micromorphological data held by the Soil Resource Studies Division. The vertisols of the southwestern part of the Purna Valley are, therefore, polygenetic because they exhibit distinctly different soil properties resulting from increasing aridity in the valley during

  • Late Quaternary vegetation and climatic history of the Long Valley area, West-Central Idaho, U.S.A.
  • Valley area of west-central Idaho. Results and discussion.

  • Central Great Karoo headwater catchments and valley fills; an overview of short term change
  • The phenomenon of headwater catchments and valley fills in the context of southern Africa, but with specific reference to the central Great Karoo is examined. Comparisons are made to similar environmental, geographical and historical context

  • Thermoluminescence dating of alluvial sequences in coastal valleys of Southern New South Wales : problems and potential
  • here, together with C 14 dating and pedogenic evidence, to assess the reliability of TL determinations for alluvium in the valleys of the Clyde River and Termeil Creek. The Pleistocene TL ages from these valleys seem reliable, but Holocene dates do

  • The sensitivity of Scottish rivers and upland valley floors to recent environmental change
  • Atmospheric circulation ; Flood ; Global change ; Land use ; Nineteenth Century ; River bed ; Scotland ; Sensitivity analysis ; Stream ; United Kingdom ; Valley floor evolution
  • This paper examines the stability of river channels and their associated valley floors in the uplands of Scotland since 1750. Changes in global-scale atmospheric circulation patterns during this period have resulted in regionally district flood-rich

  • Lateroglacial valleys and landforms in the Karakoram Mountains (Pakistan)
  • supplies from the tributary valleys. Topographical factors seem to be more important than insolation differences for the lateroglacial valley distribution pattern.

  • Luminescence dating of sediments from the Luthern Valley, central Switzerland, and implications for the chronology of the last glacial cycle
  • and environmental change during the Upper Pleistocene. Repeated fluvial sequences can be studied in several pits along the Luthern Valley. The chronological framework is based on lithostratigraphy, pollen analysis, U/Th dating, and heavy mineral analysis

  • This study examines the spatial variability of early season water chemistry in the arctic-alpine valley of Kärkevagge. The data demonstrate the spatially heterogeneous nature of water chemistry and the general patterns of chemical weathering
  • in the valley. Water chemistry in this valley is dominated by 2 anions, bicarbonate and sulfate. Spatial patterns of chemical constituents reflect the broad effects of local geology on surface water chemistry. In particular, they demonstrate the effects

  • Metropolitan political reorganization as a politics of urban growth : the case of San Fernando Valley secession
  • between reorganization and growth politics, the paper analyzes the case of a secession movement in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. The A. shows that, among other goals, secessionists are trying to restructure the local state so that they can now more

  • Agricultural influence on landscape sensitivity in the Upper Mississippi River Valley
  • This paper evaluates how agricultural land use influenced the relative responsiveness of floods, erosion, and sedimentation to extreme and nonextreme hydologic activity occurring in watersheds of the Upper Mississippi Valley. The chronology
