  • Sediment storage and transport in Pancho Rico Valley during and after the Pleistocene-Holocene transition, Coast Ranges of central California (Monterey County)
  • climate of the Pleistocene-Holocene transition caused intense debris-flow erosion of PRC-tributary valleys. The influence of multiple mechanisms on sediment storage and transport in the Pancho Rico Valley-Salinas Valley system exemplifies the complexity

  • Antarctique ; Bilan énergétique ; Changement climatique ; Dry Valleys ; Humidité du sol ; Modèle numérique ; Mollisol ; Périglaciaire ; Température du sol
  • Here, the AA. present results of a study to characterise soil thermal properties along a soil moisture gradient adjacent to Lake Fryxell in Taylor Valley, Antarctica. The goals were to characterise the thermal characteristics of these relatively wet
  • soils (compared to the rest of the McMurdo Dry Valleys landscape), and to assess the response of the active layer to possible increases in soil moisture. The AA. measured subsurfaces temperatures at depths from 3 to 50 cm at 4 locations along a natural

  • Irrigation agriculture and the sedimentary record in the Palpa Valley, southern Peru
  • This paper reports the results of sedimentological-pedological investigations in the Palpa Valley in the coastal desert of southern Peru, the northern extension of the Chilean Atacama, where sediment-laden river water is used for irrigation
  • . An adapted facies classification is used to deduce a generalised stratigraphical sequence of the valley bottom sediments. Chronological constraints from radiocarbon dating and archaeological finds are used to reconstruct sedimentation rates for fossil
  • to recent irragric anthrosols. Actualistic case studies are used to quantify present-day irrigation sedimentation. The investigations result in a clarification of the sedimentological and geomorphic history of this valley and a quantification of irrigation

  • A radar transparent layer in a temperate valley glacier : Bench Glacier, Alaska
  • Radar surveys of Bench Glacier, Alaska, collected over five field seasons between 2002 and 2006 reveal a surface layer of radar transparent ice in this temperate valley glacier. This transparent layer has similar radar characteristics to the cold

  • Railroad abandonment : a catalyst for urban renewal in the San Fernando Valley, California
  • , thus contributing to revitalization. The Burbank Branch line, located in the San Fernando Valley just north of Los Angeles, is examined as a case study.

  • A rockfall was triggered in the Tolminka valley at Polog in the beginning of May, 2004. Rockfall didn't endangered settlements or infrastructure, but it caused many disturbances in natural environment. After the rockfall we could observe many
  • impacts of rockfalls on the natural landscape. We put special emphasis on damming of the valley, filling up the lake with sediments from upstream of the rockfall and to the ratio between the rockfall slope and erosion of the river. - (L'A.).

  • New geoarchaeological investigations of the valley systems in the Aksum area of northern Ethiopia
  • Recent geoarchaeological investigations of the valley systems to the north and northeast of Aksum have revealed indications of a relatively recent alluvial sequence, probably within the last millennium. The implication is that both during and prior
  • colluvial and alluvial additions. In the last 4 to 5 centuries, the pace of alluvial aggradation appears to have increased markedly, and has deposited at least half of the sediment captured in the valley systems and lower slopes to the north of Aksum

  • Valley morphology and sediment cascades within a wetland system in the KawaZulu-Natal Drakensberg Foothills, eastern South Africa
  • , and proceeds, using observations from this and other similar wetland systems in the region, to discuss successive breaks in connectivity with increasing spatial scale and time. Implications for valley morphology are discussed, and channel incision is shown
  • to play an important role in long-term valley and wetland morphodynamics in certain geomorphological settings, creating a diversity of geomorphological features and hydrological regimes.

  • Quantifying sediment storage in a high alpine valley (Turtmanntal, Switzerland)
  • This study quantifies sediment deposits of different high alpine landforms in a meso-scale alpine catchment of the Swiss Alps (Turtmann Valley) by applying a combination of geophysical surveying and GIS modelling techniques at different scales. Mean
  • thickness values of each landform type calculated from these data was used to estimate the sediment volume in the hanging valleys and the trough slopes. Sediment volume of the remaining subsystems was determined by modelling an assumed parabolic bedrock
