  • Bedrock temperatures were measured over a 12-month period (June 2003-July 2004) at 6 sites within the Gruve-7 coal mine in the Adventdalen valley, near Longyearbyen. Temperatures are highest in areas lying beneath the Foxfonna glacier and lowest
  • in areas lying beneath the ice-free, periglacial upland. Episodic seepage of glacial meltwater into the mine is indicated by the presence of ice within joints and fractures in the exposed bedrock of the walls and ceilings of the mine corridor. Air
  • ventilation seems to be affecting bedrock temperatures in the outermost, ice-free parts of the Gruve-7 mine.

  • The A. attempted to analyze the distribution of marinas by the number and the types of boats as well as the composition of the facilities. On the basis of the analysis, the study area could be divided into 3 regions : areas facing the Pacific Ocean
  • with large storage capacity, dominance of sailboats, and incident facilities; marinas in the inner bay region, around Tokyo Bay, with small storage capacity, and simple facilities; the lake region, an area specializing in black bass fishing, with very small

  • Structural setting at the front of a thrust and fold belt : the Craco area (Southern Apennines)
  • This Craco area displays some of the best outcrops of the frontal part of the Southern Apennines ; it is therefore a key area for interpreting the evolution of a recent thrust belt. This paper reports the results of detailed geological mapping

  • Based on relevant research and investigations, 3 congregated areas of Danxia landform in China are discussed in this paper : the southeast, the southwest and the northwest. Not only the conditions of geology and geography of the 3 areas but also
  • the differences of Danxia landforms of the 3 areas are analyzed. The Danxia landscape, characterized by upright-shaped peaks, Danxia mesa, stone wall, cave and vertical cave often presents in the southeast area. The landscape of southwest area is characterised
  • by Danxia escarpment faces and waterfalls. In the northwest area, the Danxia landscape has the traits of arid areas. Finally, the AA. explore the causes which lead differences in landform and also explains the landform and the external processes.

  • The extent of the developed land in the studied area, Suzhou city at the center of the Yangtze delta, and the impact of development on soil resources at 1:100,000 scale are estimated and the soil types impacted most by urbanization development
  • are determined through overlaying the soil map on the satellite images (Landsat-7) of the studied area at different times (1984, 1995, 2000 and 2003). A GIS combines these data with established soil databases to present the fast expanding trend of urbanization
  • in the Yangtze delta area, the urban spread, the soils occupied by the urbanization process and their quality.

  • This paper presents demographic as well as socioeconomic effects of transformations of the rural areas of the gmina of Nielisz in Lublin voivodship. The conducted research showed that within the transformation period in the area of the mono
  • -functional gmina, there occured certain noticeable changes of multi-directional character. Within the area of the gmina there occured both positive and negative effects of the transformations of rural areas. The negative ones are connected with the emigration

  • Geological and geomorphological aspects of the central-western area of the Carsoli basin (L'Aquila, Italy)
  • This paper presents the results of a geological and geomorphological study carried out in the central-western area of the Carsoli basin (AQ) during the survey of the Geomorphological Sheet 367 Tagliacozzo. The existence of a local Middle Pleistocene
  • volcanism in this part of the Central Apennines has allowed for the acquisition of some useful morpho-stratigraphic, palaeoenvironmental information. This sector is a key area to be considered for a future morpho-evolutional reconstruction of the entire

  • This study aims to qualify long-term changes in land use of Songnen plain from 1980 to 2000, and to explore the impact of land use change on ecosystem services. Results showed that from 1980 to 2000, area of rangeland, water area and wetlands
  • and area of cropland decreased, but urban area and unused land increased. Meanwhile, city sprawl has also led to loss of ecological values. Total ecosystem service values of the study area reduced dramatically in the period 1980-2000.
