  • Forgotten battles, forgotten maps : resources for reconstructing historical topographical intelligence using army map service materials
  • Army ; Historical geography ; Source of documentation ; Topographic map ; United States of America
  • A. discusses the history of the United States Army Map Service (AMS) and how its materials, which deal with topographical intelligence (terrain, facilities, and transport networks in enemy territory), became available in library collections. He
  • identifies map collections with high potential as research sources. He concludes by presenting the locations of AMS map collections and working aids for interpreting the material. Emphasis is on World War II German, Japanese, and allied sources. - (SLD)
  • Archeological site ; Galilee ; Historical geography ; Israel ; Micromorphology ; Roman era ; Soil ; Soil properties
  • The characteristics of, and the sources of the soil materials for, pottery groups manufactured in 3 ancient settlements of early Roman Galilee were studied by micromorphological techniques. The micromorphological comparison of the pottery groups
  • and soil materials shows that 2 main factors influenced the raw-material procurement strategies of the potters of these settlements : the proximity of the soil material to the potters' settlement, and the suitability of the soil material for pottery
  • Estimation of regional material yield from coastal landslides based on historical digital terrain modelling
  • High-resolution historical (1942) and recent (1994) digital terrain models were derived from aerial photographs along the Big Sur coastline in central California to measure the long-term volume of material that enters the nearshore environment
  • . The results compare well with known volumes from several deep-seated landslides in the area and suggest that the processes by which material is delivered to the coast are episodic in nature. In addition, a number of parameters are investigated to determine
  • what influences the substantial variation in yield along the coast. It is found that the magnitude of regional coastal landslide sediment yield is primarily related to the physical strength of the slope-forming material.
  • Kisérlet a tarsadalom térbeliségének torténelmi materialista értelmezésére. (Experiment at the interpretation of the spatial organization of society from the aspect of historical materialism)
  • The transfer and transformation of ideas and material cultures.

  • Standort-und Nutzungsprobleme mineralischer Rohstofflagerstätten in Weltmasstab. (Location and utilization problems of mineral raw material deposits in a global scale)
  • An essential supposition for the effective utilization of deposits is their geologic-ecological valuation. Four groups of deposits with different value, quantity and quality are distinguished. The territorial effects of the historical location
  • development of exploitable deposits are characterized in a global scale. With consideration of actual problems special attention is drawn to the transport facilities. Finally various means to a higher technic-economical availability of mineral raw materials

  • This paper is to evaluate leastways a part of that abundant paleogeographical material promoting the better understanding of the history of Earth and Life in general and particularly that of our own land and people| a secondary purpose
  • of it is to remove the crying differences between historical and geological time reckoning.
  • Smoke space : material and imagined nature in the smelter city of Anaconda, Montana
  • Environmental degradation ; Historical geography ; Industrial city ; Industrial pollution ; Metallurgy ; Montana ; Twentieth Century ; United States of America ; Urban area
  • The paper argues that both the physical material of the environment as well as the social imagination of the environment are important actors in the production of urban space. The paper shows how toxic smelter smoke and the complex social
  • imagination of that smoke shape the contours of urban space. The production of smelter smoke presents a complex set of opportunities and challenges for the continuing development of the urban landscape. Material nature matters in the everyday urban experiences
