  • Chemical analyses of fine-grained post-glacial alluvium in the middle Tyne valley has revealed marked contrasts in the geochemical characteristics of late Holocene floodplain and channel sediments. Using multivariate statistical techniques
  • , contemporary channel sediments, tills and pre-mining age alluvium from sites throughout the Tyne basin are compared and the results show that geochemical variability is diagnostic of sediment provenance from geologically distinct sub-catchments of the basin.

  • Aging, contested meanings, and the built environment
  • Canada ; Elderly people ; Ontario ; Population ageing ; Residential environment ; Social geography ; Toronto ; Urban society ; Way of life
  • The A. calls for a politiacal analysis of the ways in which the built environment is implicated in the reproduction of, and challenges to, labels associated with aging populations and thus with the construction of elderly identities. The role
  • of struggles around the built environment in changing definitions of old age is illustrated with a case study from Toronto.

  • In the Czech Republic the predominance of women within the elderly, sharply rising with age, can be observed as well as the increasing share of very old population. The laste census (1991) confirms the preferred needs of separate living
  • of particular families and individuals. This concerns also the living arrangements of the aged for whom the economic and social independence is very important. It seems necessary to stress several urban-rural differences as well. - (MS)

  • Revised ages for laminated sediment and a Holocene-marker diatom from the northern California continental slope
  • The earlier estimate for the age of laminated sediment formation, late Pleistocene to Holocene, was based on extrapolation of diatom data in the cores witn conventional 14C and oxygen-isotope chronologies. However,new radiocaebon ages for cores show
  • that the laminated deposits range in age from about 42,000 to 25,000 yr, rather than spanning the period from 20,000 to 5,000 yr B.P.

  • The age of alluvial fan deposition at a site in the southern uplands of Scotland
  • The age of a large alluvial fan debouching onto the valley floor of the River Tweed, in southern Scotland, and the sequence of events relating to this, are investigated using geomorphological, sedimentological, palynological, archaeological

  • of population in the 1960s resulted in ageing of population in rural areas, while it lowered the ratio of aged population in urban areas. The major factor of changing regional patterns of household composition is the change in age structure.

  • Prices of food products in Polish Territory as index of climatic oscillations in the Little Ice Age
  • Climate oscillation ; Climatic variation ; Economic indicators ; Historical geography ; Little ice age ; Poland ; Price
  • oscillations corresponding with climatic changes are found in this diagram. Three periods of a relatively rapid growth of prices can be distinguished which correspond with three cooling waves during Little Ice Age.

  • Controls on the variation of fan-surface age in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Haywood County, North Carolina
  • Alluvial fan deposits in two areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Haywood County were mapped and subdivided into three relative ages (young, intermediate and old) on the basis of topographic position and weathering characteristics. The mapping
  • of fan-surface ages allows an initial assessment of debris-flow hazards, as future floods and debris flows on the mountain piedmonts probably will be confined to the young surfaces.

  • Uranium-series ages of marine terrace corals from the Pacific coast of North America and implications for Last-Interglacial sea level history
  • Corals from marine terrace deposits of the Pacific coast of North America show some open-system effects with respect to U isotopes. Secondary addition of 234U is observed and implies that some apparent ages are probably minima. Some variability
  • exists in apparent ages from single deposits, and the AA. conclude that multiple analyses from a given deposit are desirable before it is possible to resolve precise age assignments or determine the duration of particular sea-level high stands.

  • Extractable Fe, Al and Mn in paleosols of late Quaternary age in the Virguna Mountains, Northwestern Rwanda
  • In this report, the AA. attempted to determine if extractable Fe, Al, and Mn provide age-dependent trends, evidence for downward movement, and leaching signals that relate the paleoclimatic influences. They also sought to determine the relative

  • The objectives of this paper are to present morphological and laboratory data for a soil that formed in one of eolian deposits, to present evidence of eolian origin, to propose an estimated age for the soil, and to compare it with two soils
  • of the same age in alluvium downslope.
