  • Rift Valley fever is a disease of animals and humans found throughout much of Africa, and recently in the Arabian Peninsula. It is spread via mosquito vectors and direct contact with infected tissue and fluids. This progress report reviews the key
  • research literature on climate-driven environmental change and Rift Valley fever. The roles of regional and seasonal climates for the disease are emphasized, as well as remote sensing and other approaches to monitoring and analysis. The paper concludes

  • The role of blocks of dead ice in the deposition of late glacial sediments in a large valley : A case study from the Vistula river valley in the Grudziądz basin, north Poland
  • The paper describes the processes associated with sediment deposition in the presence of large blocks of dead or stagnating ice. The study examines a large valley depression in the Grudziądz Basin (lower Vistula Valley) which formed part of the area

  • The relation between glacial and karst landforms are analysed in the study. The following surface types are considered : surface with sheep rock, surface with dolines, surface dissected with u-shaped valleys, U-shaped valley with scablands, surface
  • with cirque valley and surface with combe-ridge. In the paper author presents the characteristics and karsification features of three of the above mentioned types. - (AM)

  • Alternative coordinate systems for analyzing cross-section shapes of glaciated valleys : a case study from the Dalijia Mountains, China
  • China ; Geomorphometry ; Glacial erosion ; Glacial features ; Glacial valley ; Methodology ; Mountain ; Tibet
  • The morphometry of glaciated valleys has been of considerable significance in evaluating models and processes of valley form development, and is typically evaluated using a power law function fit to topographic data. Results of the power law method
  • are sensitive to the location of the coordinate system origin, but most previous research has used a coordinate system centered on the valley midpoint and has not systematically assessed alternative approaches. Here, the AA. test 4 options for selecting
  • the coordinate system origin, using cross-section profiles from glacial, fluvial, and transitional valleys in the Dalijia Mountains, China. In conclusion, in morphometric studies designed to evaluate impacts of glacial erosion using the power law approach, the AA

  • Critical topographic threshold of gully erosion in Yuanmou Dry-hot Valley in Southwestern China
  • This study investigated gully morphology and the critical topographic threshold of permanent gullies in Yuanmou Dry-hot Valley. Data for 36 gully heads were derived from the gully digital elevation model created by high-precision real-time kinematic
  • morphology tends to be stable. The results indicate that collapse of the gully wall is the dominant process of gully erosion in Yuanmou Dry-hot Valley.

  • The Cairngorm massif in NE Scotland is an excellent example of a preglacial upland landscape formed in granite. Glacial erosion in the mountains has been largely confined to valleys and corries and so has acted to dissect a pre-existing upland
  • . Intervening areas of the massif experienced negligible glacial erosion due to protective covers of cold-based ice and preserve a wide range of pre-glacial and non-glacial landforms and regolith. The cliffs that sharply demarcate the edges of glacial valleys
  • and corries allow the main pre-glacial landforms to be easily identified. The former shape of pre-glacial valleys and valley heads can then be reconstructed by extrapolation of contours to provide a model of the pre-glacial relief of the Cairngorms

  • From 1802 to 1854, the Chiang Tung Wars are a series of conflicts involving many Tai principalities and the kingdom of Lan Na for the control of the upper valley of Mekong. They culminated with a vast battle between the forces of Siam, Burma

  • primarily formed from colluvial deposits in the valley and secondarily from failure of slopes in granitic rock located uphill. The AA. hypothesize that the main part of the landslide resulted from seismogenic liquefaction of valley colluvium, rather than
  • in the laboratory. The results showed that the sandy soils that comprise most of the deposit are highly liquefiable under seismic loading. It is concluded that liquefaction of the colluvium in the valley during the earthquake was the main reason for this rapid long

  • Glacial and fluvial deposits in the Aragón Valley, Central-Western Pyrenees : chronology of the Pyrenean late Pleistocene glaciers
  • New morphological studies and absolute ages for moraines and fluvial terraces in the Aragón Valley allow a correlation with other Pyrenean glaciers and provide solid chronologies about the asynchroneity between global last glacial maximum (LGM

  • Quantification and dating of floodplain sedimentation in a medium-sized catchment of the German uplands : a case study from the Aar Valley in the southern Rhenish Massif, Germany

  • In order to evaluate the potential of the Schmidt hammer for relative age dating of Late Pleistocene moraines and rock glaciers, rebound (R) values were collected at 38 sites in 2 formerly glaciated valleys in the Western Tatras in northern Slovakia
  • . A large statistical population of measurements obtained from moraine and rock glacier surfaces was used to analyze the variability of mean R-values in the same lithology and overall southern valley exposition. Four separate sets of glacial/periglacial
  • morphosystems are present at different positions in the Western Tatras starting from valley outlets to the highest cirques, which represent successive phases of deglaciation. The results of weathering indexes used in conjunction with geomorphological
