Digital Topography: Should you choose a TIN or raster interpolation of the landscape?
Lisa Walsh, University of Maryland-College Park
The recent explosion of Geographic Information System (GIS) tools enable geoscientists to visualize the Earth's surface in three dimensions using digital topography. Digital topography can be represented in ...

Tillage erosion in developing countries in Asia
ALAN ZIEGLER
Tillage erosion, which is the net redistribution of soil within the landscape as a result of farming activities, is one of the most important soil degradation processes on sloping croplands world-wide (Govers et ...

Cosmogenic nuclide inventories of river sediments reveal the geomorphic character of their source areas
Alexandru T Codilean
The realization that surface processes can play a key role in moderating tectonics, and possibly climate (Molnar & England, 1990; Raymo & Ruddiman, 1992; see also Bishop 2007) has meant that there is now a ...

Impact of deforestation on slope stability
veerle vanacker
Slope movement is a widespread hazard in mountainous regions around the world. Consequently, not only considerable financial costs are suffered, but also major ecological and environmental problems arise in a ...

Vegetation restoration in gully beds enhances sediment deposition
veerle vanacker
Mountain ecosystems in developing countries are suffering from rapid land-use/land-cover change, induced by demographic growth and socio-economic development (Figure 1, Vanacker et al., 2003). Given their steep ...

Quantification of sediment storage and flux in an alpine basin (Reintal, Bavarian Alps, Germany)
Joachim Goetz; Martin Geilhausen
This vignette deals with the quantification of sediment storage and sediment input and exemplifies how sediment is transferred through an alpine catchment system (Reintal, Bavarian Alps). The Reintal valley is ...

Effects of 4-Wheel Drive Vehicles on Beach Sediment Transport
Timothy Austin
The use of 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) vehicles on coastal beaches is an activity that attracts considerable controversy amongst beach users. 4WD vehicles are currently permitted access to hundreds of beaches throughout ...

Width convergence in tide-dominated estuaries: the case of the Alligator Rivers, Northern Australia.
Gareth Davies
The Alligator Rivers region is situated in the southeast corner of Van Diemen Gulf, northern Australia (Figure 1). It contains some excellent examples of tide-dominated estuaries (Figure 2). An immediately obvious ...
