A new approach to the geomorphic reclamation of disturbed lands, GeoFluv method, Natural Regrade Software. A GeoFluv geomorphic reclamation design which replicated colluvial slope-piedmont transition landforms revealed that it would allow the restoration of suitable habitats for the conservation of this bird of prey.

Going even further, it was demonstrated that the post-mined landscapes would have a higher biological diversity than the pre-mined ones.

Publication date: Janu This book deals with various interesting aspects of the histories of geomorphology and Quaternary geology in different parts of the world.

Geomorphology, a part of Earth Sciences, is the scientific study of landforms, their assemblages, and processes that molded them in the past and that change them today. Geomorphologists study shapes of landforms and regularities of their spatial distribu-tion, decipher their origin and evolution, and try to establish their ages.

Geomorphology. A major topic in geomorphology is the impact of global change on geomorphic systems. Drylands tend to cover approximately half of the Earth’s land surface, but represent only 20% of its population. Understanding how dryland areas are likely to respond to climate change is therefore of great societal and economic significance.

The main objective of this special issue is to review recent.

that land managers, practitioners, and policy‐ makers rely primarily on the statements of broad applicability and high confidence in formulating management plans and priorities, and that researchers conduct new studies to critically test the statements of moderate confidence and generality.

Geomorphology is the study of Earth’s physical land-surface features, its landforms - rivers, hills, plains, beaches, sand dunes, and myriad others [4]. The present research provides the preliminary information on various aspects of applied geomorphology in research area, aiming to identify and analyze landslide evidences obtained in the field.

EFFECTS OF LAND USE ON WETLAND HYDROLOGY TWO Wetland Soils, Hydrology, and Geomorphology C. RHETT JACKSON, JAMES A. THOMPSON, and RANDALL K. KOLKA The hydrology, soils, and watershed processes of a wetland all interact with vegetation and animals over time to cre-ate the dynamic physical template upon which a wetland’s ecosystem is based (Fig.

WALKER AND MOLLY McGRAW The deduction is that the geomorphic-based reclamation has re-established an approximate steady-state or dynamic equilibrium, where hydrological and erosive – sedimentary functionality operate now at rates comparable to the surrounding natural land.

Although further research is required to confirm long-term stability, geomorphic reclamation. The ordinary way of reclamation in Russia is based on a level relief. The author’s experience shows that the folded surface is more effective for the reclamation.

Creating of a folded relief with the purpose of the disturbed landscape restoration is a special method which I call the geoplastics. Geomorphology is the science of landforms, with an emphasis on their origin, evolution, form, and distribution across the physical landscape. Understanding geomorphology is therefore essential to understanding one of the most popular divisions of geography.

Tectonic geomorphology is the study of the interplay between tectonic and surface processes that shape the landscape in regions of active deformation and at time scales ranging from days to millions of years.

Over the past decade, recent advances in the quantification of both rates and the physical basis of tectonic and surface processes have underpinned an explosion of new research in the. transition zone where the land meets water, the region that is directly influenced by marine hydrodynamic processes.

• The coastal zone extends offshore to the continental shelf break and onshore to the first major change in topography above the reach of major storm waves.

• The CZ is divided into four subzones: (1) Coast. (2) Shore. Disturbed Land Reclamation The use, extraction, and processing of natural resources often disturbs the landscape.

Although this disturbance can be extensive, the land can be reclaimed to a condition that is compatible with or improved beyond its pre-disturbed condition or. Conclusions • The authors support the concept of geomorphic mine land reclamation in Central Appalachia and elsewhere.

• We particularly like its implications for long -term, post-bond- release stability of reclaimed surfaces, especially excess spoil fills. • Challenges to the application of landforming and stream restoration on surface mines in steep-slope topography include.

Special Conditions in Deserts – Impermeable surfaces predominate e.g. caprocks (bedrock) and hardpans (hardened soil). – Rain ends up as run-off. Never gets into groundwater, were plants can draw it up later. – Sand & Wind – but not all deserts have sand or have landforms shaped mainly by wind.

Introduction. Degraded lands are the center of much attention as global demands for food, feed and fuel continue to increase at unprecedented rates, while the agricultural land base needed for production is shrinking in many parts of the world (Bruinsma, ; Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations [FAO], ; Gelfand et al.,Lambin et al.,Lambin and Meyfroidt.
