  • Cultural heritage of roads and road landscapes : classification and insights on valuation
  • Cultural patrimony ; Cultural studies ; Landscape ; Landscape evaluation ; Road
  • The article is aimed to present a framework for analysing the cultural heritage of the automobile roads and road landscapes consisting of the system for its classification and of identification of factors determining its cultural value

  • Télvégi utburkolatkar vizsgalata a Kisvarda-Tornyospalca utvonalon. (Frost damage to road pavement after winter on the road between Kisvarda and Tornyospalca)
  • During the winter of 1980-81 serious damage occurred to public roads in Hungary. Weather, the properties of road fill material, the traffic of heavy vehicles and the quality of pavement have been proved to be major factors influencing the extent

  • Grain size distribution ; Impact ; Rainstorm ; Rill wash ; Road ; Sediment budget ; Soil erosion ; Soil moisture ; Traffic ; United States of America ; Vegetation ; Watershed
  • The goal of this study was to quantify the effect of unpaved roads on runoff and sediment production on St John, and to better understand the key controlling factors. To this end runoff and sediment yields were measured from July 1996 to March 1997
  • from 3 plots on naturally vegetated slopes, 4 plots on unpaved road surfaces and 2 cutslope plots. Sediment yields were also measured from 7 road segments. The results assess the effects of unpaved roads on runoff and erosion at different spatial scales
  • , and provide the process-based understanding necessary for planning, improved road design and mitigation.

  • Air pollution due to road traffic in Ljubljana
  • Air quality ; Atmospheric pollution ; Pollution ; Road traffic ; Slovenia ; Urban geography
  • Air pollution is due to road traffic an inevitable outcome of internal combustion in engines of vehicles and some other processes. Air near the roads is more polluted with some pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, ozone, particulate
  • matter and some others. Monitoring the air quality is a key issue, when one wants to estimate environmental impacts of the road traffic. The article shows a method of passive samplers for air quality monitoring along different roads in the area
  • Information not data : future development of road weather information systems
  • Applied climatology ; Climatic event ; Geographical information system ; Road ; Road traffic ; Sweden ; Weather forecast
  • The Swedish Road Weather Information System is a tool for road winter maintenance giving warnings about risk of slipperiness and severe weather conditions. The system is based on climatological research at the University of Göteborg. Knowledge about
  • micro- and local climate variations is crucial when it comes to forecasting and giving warnings about different kinds of weather-related traffic disturbances. The progress of climatological research has made it possible to increase the use of road
  • Remoteness and rural development : economic impacts of rural roads on upland farmers in Sarawak, Malaysia
  • Accessibility ; Agriculture ; Economic impact ; Enquiry ; Food production ; Malaysia ; Road ; Rural development ; Sarawak ; Transport ; Transport cost
  • Attention is given to the role of rural roads in countering remoteness and promoting more equitable development. The paper focuses on three economic impacts of roads - agricultural production, employment, and household income. The impact of roads
  • varies within an area and between areas. Impacts are considerably greater when roads provide communities with access to a major urban centre compared with a small town.
  • Modelling road surface sediment production using a vector geographic information system
  • Drainage ; Forecast ; Geographical information system ; Model ; Rill wash ; Road ; Road network ; Sediment budget ; Soil erosion ; Watershed ; West Indies
  • This paper presents field observations and the resultant model (ROADMOD) that integrates road data with a vector geographic information system (GIS) to predict the amount of sediment produced by unpaved road networks on St John. Predicted road
  • Road reconstruction and landscape fragmentation in China
  • Biogeography ; China ; Ecosystem ; Fauna ; Habitat ; Impact ; Landscape structure ; Road infrastructure ; Road network ; Vegetation
  • The landscape fragmentation caused by road construction has many direct and indirect impacts on wildlife and ecosystems. By using the GIS and statistic software of fragmentation computation, a comprehensive index, road-induced landscape
  • fragmentation index (RLFI), is proposed to quantify the degree of landscape fragmentation resulting from different levels of road constructions. The anisotropic analysis indicates that the variation of fragmentation index in east-west direction is larger than
  • Epidemiology and risk of road traffic mortality in South Africa
  • Epidemiology ; Mortality ; Risk ; Road accident ; Road traffic ; South Africa ; Spatial differentiation
  • In view of the large and increasing road traffic fatality burden in South Africa, this study describes the risk of fatal road traffic injuries according to population and rural-urban characteristics in the country between 2002 and 2006. There were
  • Erosion models and hydrogeomorphological functioning on hill-roads (Iberian System, La Rioja, Spain)
  • Several erosion processes have been detected on road-cuts of hill-roads. The relative significance of slides, severe sheet wash and incisions was determined in 59 sections of hill-roads. The application of multivariable methods (cluster
  • and discriminant analysis) has allowed to distinguish 3 models of geomorphological evolution on road-cuts that are related to different types of slope runoff regimes.
  • The functions of roads according to regional political criteria
  • Austria ; Commuting ; Local labour market ; Residential location ; Road ; Road network ; Spatial organization ; Spatial structure ; Tourism ; Transport network
  • Regional political criteria are considered in the directions to road network construction. These networks are regarded as planning instruments and their various spatial functions are studied in Austria, as well as the corresponding economic
  • and social participation and utilization chances conveyed through the transport system. The function profiles form a fundamental input for the establishment of suitable constructive principles of road sections.
  • Erosion and sediment delivery following removal of forest roads
  • California ; Drainage ; Erosion control ; Forest ; Geotechnics ; Gully erosion ; Impact ; Mass movement ; Road ; Sediment budget ; Slope gradient ; Soil erosion ; United States of America ; Watershed
  • Erosion control treatments were applied to abandoned logging roads in California, with the goal of reducing road-related sediment input to streams and restoring natural hydrologic patterns on the landscape. This paper evaluates the erosion
  • and sediment delivery from treated roads based on measurements after the 1997 storm.
