    Tristan Sturm

    Hal Lindsey & Carlson’s, 1970 book, The Late Great Planet Earth, was the best-selling non-fiction book of the 1970s. In it, using the eschatology of premillennial dispensationalism commonly believed by American evangelicals, he conflates biblical prophecy with current geopolitical conflicts. He exploits the uncertainty of the nuclear age, civil rights movement, and ‘wars and rumours of wars’ in Asia

    Jakub Lysek; Jiří Pánek; Tomáš Lebeda

    The mapping of election results has long been a popular topic among cartographers, journalists, data scientists and infographic authors. However, their work usually concludes with simple visualizations of a single election, and in most cases only the winning party is represented. Can we tell the story of a political party over two decades via maps? What were the reasons for the rise and fall of such

    ABSTRACT The Alghero Bay is a coastal area of high economic value because of the presence of one of the most popular beaches of Sardinia (San Giovanni, Maria Pia, Le Bombarde, Lazzaretto). The organisms living in the meadow of Posidonia oceanica, which densely cover the offshore areas of the bay, represent the most important source of sediments to these beaches. For this reason, a detailed mapping

    ABSTRACT The NW Iberian margin is a hyperextended continental margin, formed during the opening of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a subsequent partial tectonic inversion has undergone during the Alpine Orogeny. This succession of tectonic episodes determines the magnetic signature of the margin. The Spanish Exclusive Economic Zone Project has carried out seven one-month cruises between 2001 and 2009

    In landslide susceptibility modeling, the selection of the mapping units is a very relevant topic both in terms of geomorphological adequacy and suitability of the models and final maps. In this paper, a test to integrate pixels and slope units is presented. MARS (Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines) modeling was applied to assess landslide susceptibility based on a 12 predictors and a 1608 cases

    Rimini is located at the southernmost end of the Po Plain, in Emilia-Romagna region. The geomorphology of the site mainly depends on the actions of the Marecchia River, coupled with marine processes in Holocene times. By creating a geomorphological map of the area, we highlight the factors that influenced the historical evolution of the town, relating them to anthropic features, with acmes in natural

  • Landform modifications within an intramontane urban landscape due to industrial activity, Wałbrzych, SW Poland

    The city of Wałbrzych represents a geomorphic landscape, heavily modified by nearly three centuries of industrial activity, related mainly to coal mining. The key landforms due to human impact include spoil tips of various types, extensive levelled terrains, waste ponds, and railway embankments and cuts. Ground subsidence due to mining and water pumping have affected large areas. The map shows the

    Geographers, cartographers, and related social scientists are increasingly locating the (geo)politics of the vernacular within volunteered geographic information, the geoweb, and other digital technologies that enable the production of new maps. We instead focus our attention on ‘old’ cartographic practices. We contend that map-based community activism and geopolitics continue to occur in ways that

  • Underthrusting and exhumation of continent-derived units within orogenic wedge: an example from the Northern Apennines (Italy)

    ABSTRACT The Punta Bianca Unit (NW Italy) is a continent-derived metamorphic unit that experienced underthrusting and later exhumation in the hinterland sector of the Northern Apennines fold-and-thrust belt. We present a novel 1:5000 scale geological map that aims to illustrate the polyphase tectonic evolution of the Punta Bianca Unit and its relationships with non-metamorphic units. The geologic data

    ABSTRACT This study presents the first detailed glacial geomorphological map of the sediment-landform assemblages formed by three eastern outlet glaciers of the former Patagonian Ice Sheet. These glaciers occupied the Río Corcovado, Río Huemul and Lago Palena/General Vintter valleys, Chubut province, Argentina (43°S, 71°W). By combining remote sensing and field-mapping, we build on previous ice-sheet

    ABSTRACT As part of an archaeological research project, we investigate the geomorphology of the cold and arid study area by combining field mapping with use of orthoimages and DEM. To the north of a broad trunk valley floor, gentle slopes continuously vegetated culminate around 3000 m, while to the south steep slopes reaching to 3500 m are deeply incised and covered mainly by regolith. The basin has
