K.A.M. Perera, Lasantha Manawadu Urban Spatial Structure Analysis

Uncontrolled rapid urban growth due to built-up area expansion over the last few decades has created critical problems to urban planners. Therefore, it is worth to identify spatial distribution pattern of built-up area in a town. Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) provide a great potential for urban data collection & spatial analysis and not much academic literature exists on how to best utilize these technologies for urban studies. Traditional approaches to data collection and analysis no longer adequate to provide updated information for urban planners. This book, therefore, introduces alternative techniques for data collection, updating, detection of built-up area change and unauthorised constructions, identifying urban spatial distribution pattern considering built-up area density. New GIS spatial analysis techniques such as weighted mean centre and spatial autocorrelation tools introduced. These analysis techniques should help to shed light on the field of urban planning, and should be especially useful to students and professionals in urban planning or anyone else who may be considering utilizing RS and GIS for urban spatial structure analysis.

Md. Mizanoor Rahman, Jayant K. Routray Peri-Urban Economic Transformation of Bangladesh

The book focuses on issues and challenges of economic transformation of the peri-urban area around Rajshahi city of Bangladesh. Peri-urban area is the transitional zone between an urban and its nearby rural area. Characteristically, the area is neither urban nor rural but it gradually attains urban characteristics and spatially shifts from urban to rural area. As a result, the economic setting in term of occupation, income, expenditure capacity, land use, land value, infrastructure, living facilities etc. of the dwellers of this area changes rapidly. And this changing process becomes influenced by a number of factors like location, distance from urban center, road network, transportation system, marketing network, employment opportunities, governmental policies and planning and so on. Though, the urban areas have development plan but due to week implementation of plan a haphazard urban growth can be found that reduces the actual competency of the area. So, it is necessary to implement the existing development plan and initiate integrated rural-urban development plan for better, planed and furnished urban development in Bangladesh.

Rai Praveen Kumar, Nathawat M.S. Remote Sensing . GIS in Glacier Mapping

This book is an expression of the myriad ways in which the range of Remote Sensing and GIS techniques can be applied to the mapping of glaciers. Glaciers are characterized by the variability of different types of snow and ice deposited in accumulation and ablation areas. Remote Sensing techniques like Digital image processing of satellite data provide an effective solution for categorizing the various materials on glaciers depending upon their spectral reflectance.Visual interpretation in glaciated terrain suffers mainly because of less understanding highly variable material composition and processes operative over glaciers. This sometimes leads to biased interpretation based on little knowledge which leads to wrong interpretation. Inventory of the glaciers is of prime interest to evaluate the nature of changes in glacier dimensions and also to establish relationship between climatic change and dynamics of glaciers. As glaciological studies in high altitude terrains are very difficult by conventional methods. Remote Sensing data with GIS techniques is used to mapping and monitoring of permanent snowfields and glacier covered area.

An urban hazard is a potentially damaging phenomenon that threatens a city, its population and related socioeconomic activities. There is not only a single hazard, but many hazards to which a city is vulnerable, though the probability of occurrences and intensity may differ from hazard to hazard. The book tries to address the recurrent geo-hazards in a typical hill town using Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System techniques. It also tries to see how a rapid pre-damage assessment can be carried out in a situation with scarcity of spatial data within a short period of time, by integrating available data with historical data on occurrences of natural disasters. The case study was conducted in a part of Kohima Town, Nagaland, in the North-Eastern parts of India, which lies in the zone V of the seismic map of India. Three hazards namely: seismic, landslide and fire were taken for analysis and an estimation of buildings that may suffer damage during an earthquake, landslide and fire were carried out.

Sharma Shailesh Kumar, Yadav Amar, Gajbhiye Sarita Remote Sensing and GIS Approach for Prioritization of Watershed

Watershed prioritization is the ranking of different critical sub watersheds according to the order in which they have to be taken up for the treatment by soil and water conservation measures. A particular sub watershed may get top priority due to various reasons but often the intensity of land degradation is taken as the basis. In the absence of sediment yield data or ungauged watershed situations, geomorphologic parameters along with the satellite - based land use / land cover information of watershed may be helpful in prioritization of the sub watersheds. Quantitative geomorphologic analysis of a drainage basin is considered to be the most satisfactory method because it enables us to understand the relationship among different aspects of the drainage pattern of the basin and to make a comprehensive evaluation of different drainage basins developed in various geologic and climatic regimes. The latest advances in remote sensing technology have provided very useful methods of surveying, identifying, classifying and monitoring several forms of earth resources. Remote sensing data provide accurate, timely and real time information on various aspects of the watershed.

Rachel O'Dwyer Moving Through Sound

'Moving Through Sound' explores the role of mobile sonic technologies in a user's experience of urban place. It examines how mobile technologies such as the mp3 player are embedded in urban spatial practices, focusing on how listeners use these devices in urban situations to construct their experience of place. A common criticism of mobile technologies in the city maintains that these highly personal devices disconnect the user from the here and now, producing urban spaces absent of social and collective behaviour. This book argues instead that the everyday practice of moving and listening to music is a transformative activity that shapes urban experience and contributes to the identity of urban places. This book considers the future design and application of mobile sonic devices, exploring media art and critical design work as tactical interventions which engage alternative possibilities for social and site-specific listening experiences in urban place. A transdisciplinary text that spans audio culture, media studies, urban studies and art and design, 'Moving Through Sound' is written for legibility across a variety of disciplines.

Proper urban drainage management is core to safely discharge flood generated within an urban area or from external source in to final receiving systems or to encourage on-site infiltration. With urban development flood hazard increases due to imperiousness and this reduces the infiltration capacity of a land. Similarly with the foundation of Mekelle city, flood generation became a core problem as a result of deforestation and impervious structures. According to various studies, urban storm water drainage facilities provision in it had started with road construction. Since then the municipality has tried its best to provide drainage facilities in different periods of time. But, generally, urban storm water drainage management in the city is very minimal. Because of this land degradation, river bank erosion, urban utilities degradation, natural water ways pollution and siltation and related problems are common phenomenon. The conventional way of urban drainage management is also the other problem to manage storm water in the city. That is why, this study has given a due attention to find out what real problems exist in managing the drainage system. This study is Road-map to Part-II

Erick Sanchez Flores SPATIAL AND STATISTICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF FOREST FUELS DISTRIBUTION

Characterization of forest fuels is a key component of the successful implementation of any fire management system. Great advances have been made in the characterization of forest cover by the use of remote sensing technology. Characterization of understory fuels, however, has been limited always by the difficulty of current remote sensing products to observe through the canopy. This limitation underscores the importance of exploring approaches related to site environment characteristics that can influence the production and accumulation of understory fuels. This work explores the relationships between topography, fire history, vegetation type and downed woody fuel loadings in the forested area of the Rincon Mountains in southern Arizona. The Classification and Regression Trees method is used to predict fuel loads through the influence of predictor variables. Results show that fine woody fuel loads tend to be explained by vegetation type and slope, while coarse woody fuels are predicted best by differences in elevation.

Pedestrian Zones: Car Free Urban Spaces

In 2009, plans by New York mayor Michael Bloomberg to transform part of Broadway including Times Square into a pedestrian area caused a sensation, not just in the city but internationally. Urban areas where pedestrians have right of way over vehicles are becoming increasingly important in the modern city and have enjoyed growing popularity since the 1950s. Not only do they increase the quality of life of the residents, they also become an increasingly important locational factor. In general there are two types of pedestrian zones: the first serves primarily as an alternative transit route without cars, while the second is dedicated to shopping and entertainment in the form of traffic-free shopping streets and open pedestrian areas within shopping malls. Based on a careful selection of projects this volume presents the functional and design variety of these popular urban spaces.

Prabhakara Reddy Influence of Nutrient Rich Organic Wastes in Wastelands Reclamation

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Environmental Sciences, grade: 1, , language: English, abstract: Exploration for natural resources and their utilization are present ever since the existence of human civilization. In India, land and water resources are the two important ones which determine our development. We possess large geographical area of 329 M.ha and unfortunately, nearly half of it is characterized with low soil fertility. Thus, nutrient limitation is an issue of concern in these marginal lands and several initiatives have been made in the past on their improvement. In contrast, we are also seeing nutrient surplus situations, sometimes even toxicities, in urban areas due to domestic and industrial waste disposals. Chemically, these wastes are organic in nature and rich in plant nutrients. An attempt was made to match these contrasting situations i.e. application of nutrient rich organic wastes to meet the nutrient requirements of tree species planted on less fertile wastelands. Thus, the objectives of the experiment were, - To characterize the wastelands in terms of physical and chemical features as soil limiting factors in afforestation programme- To characterize domestic and agro-industrial organic wastes for suitability as nutrient source in afforestation programme- To evaluate the changes in physical and chemical properties of wasteland soils due to organic wastes application- To evaluate the growth performance of tree species due t...

It offers an analysis and lessons learned for the contemporary operating environment.Increasingly, urban operations will be a requirement of counterinsurgency. For instance, generally speaking the area known as the Middle East is comprised of 18 Nations; is 4.3 million square miles, had a population of 326 million in 2002. 57% of this population resides in urban areas. For comparison, 25% of the population was urban in 1960 and current projections indicate that by the year 2015 that 70% of the population will be urban. Increasingly, military operations and or counter-insurgency operations within urban areas means that operations will increasingly include a succession of urban operations that literally will cross ethnic and cultural boundaries from one street to the next and will increase the complexity of operations....thus adding another layer of complexity to the hearts and minds campaign.

Army Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (ATTP) 3-06.11 establishes doctrine for combined arms operations in urban terrain for the brigade combat team (BCT) and battalion/squadron commanders and staffs, company/troop commanders, small-unit leaders, and individual Soldiers. The continued trend worldwide of urban growth and the shift of populations from rural to urban areas continues to affect Army operations. The urban environment, consisting of complex terrain, dense populations, and integrated infrastructures, is the predominant operational environment in which Army forces currently operate. Each urban environment is unique and differs because of the combinations presented by the enemy, the urban area itself, the major operation of which it may be part (or the focus), and always changing societal and geopolitical considerations. Enemy forces will take advantage of this complex environment by intermingling with the populace. ATTP 3-06.11 describes the fundamental principles, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) of urban operations (UO) across full spectrum operations, using the UO operational construct (understand, shape, engage, consolidate, and transition) to outline the discussions. ATTP 3-06.11 is based on current BCT structure and lessons learned from ongoing UO.

The study area, Wadas Lintang Watershed in Wonosobo District, Central Java Province, experiences landslide in yearly basis. Due to landslide, the area has been facing the loss of human lives and damages to properties. The landslide events commonly occur in rainy season, thus the rainfall can be regarded as the main trigger in the area. The condition has been being problematic due to lack of availability of information pertaining correlation between rainfall and persistent landslide events in this area. As respond to the problem, this book provides rainfall thresholds for landslide initiation in the area, combined with assessment of terrain hydrological properties, and modelling of slope stability in the area.

Dubey Swatantra Indoor Pollution and It.s Mum Effects

In the present era, where most of us spend 18-20 hours per day behind the closed doors which has unknown, invisible, and chronic exposure to the health which gives its result suddenly that there is no time to ascertain the cause of symptoms realized. Its impacts depend on the level of development i.e. rural and urbanized area. Indoor word assimilate not only houses but also offices, classrooms, bathrooms, restaurants, garage, etc. i.e. any space surrounded by concrete structure. It is seen that its impacts are more severe in case of more developed area rather than less developed. One of the major factors is the free space availability as in case of rural area it is less effective, because of large free space availability as comparison to urban areas.

Sea Ice: Physics and Remote Sensing addresses experiences acquired mainly in Canada by researchers in the fields of ice physics and growth history in relation to its polycrystalline structure as well as ice parameters retrieval from remote sensing observations. The volume describes processes operating at the macro- and microscale (e.g., brine entrapment in sea ice, crystallographic texture of ice types, brine drainage mechanisms, etc.). The information is supported by high-quality photographs of ice thin-sections prepared from cores of different ice types, all obtained by leading experts during field experiments in the 1970s through the 1990s, using photographic cameras and scanning microscopy. In addition, this volume presents techniques to retrieve a suite of sea ice parameters (e.g. ice type, concentration, extent, thickness, surface temperature, surface deformation, etc.) from space-borne and airborne sensor data. The breadth of the material on this subject is designed to appeal to researchers and users of remote sensing data who want to develop quick familiarity with the capabilities of this technology or detailed knowledge about major techniques for retrieval of key ice parameters. Volume highlights include: • Detailed crystallographic classification of natural sea ice, the key information from which information about ice growth conditions can be inferred. Many examples are presented with material to support qualitative and quantitative interpretation of the data. • Methods developed for revealing microstructural characteristics of sea ice and performing forensic investigations. • Data sets on radiative properties and satellite observations of sea ice, its snow cover, and surrounding open water. • Methods of retrieval of ice surface features and geophysical parameters from remote sensing observations with a focus on critical issues such as the suitability of different sensors for different tasks and data synergism. Sea Ice: Physics and Remote Sensing is intended for a variety of sea ice audiences interested in different aspects of ice related to physics, geophysics, remote sensing, operational monitoring, mechanics, and cryospheric sciences.
