Cover for Potential effects of environmental change on landslide hazards in forest environments.

The interactive roles of the natural factors that contribute to landslide initiation and potential climate changes are complex. Additional complexity is added when changing forest land uses are considered. Thus, while it is impossible to ascertain specific patterns of landslide response to possible ...

Cover for The potential impact of global change on surface erosion from forest lands in Asia.

The potential impacts of global change on forest cover throughout tropical Asia as well as influence of these changes on surface erosion by wind and water are discussed. Forests basically play two roles in the global warming phenomenon. First, forests have a passive role as the impact of global...

Cover for The effects of environmental changes on weathering, gravitational rock deformation, and landslides.

The effects of climatic change on the processes of weathering, slow and long-term gravitational deformation of rocks, and rapid landslides are discussed. Weathering processes, which result in landslide materials, create weathering profiles during variable time periods ranging from tens of years to...

Cover for Global changes, mangrove forests and implications for hazards along continental shorelines.

Coastal zones are becoming more hazardous due to increased population and greater susceptibility to flooding and salinization, as a result of compaction and subsidence, surface sealing and loss of buffer zones between the coast and settled areas. These conditions are exacerbated in the developing...

Cover for Regional hydrologic impacts of climate change.

A climate change detection framework is presented and applied to five hydrologic variables calculated for a collection of forested catchments from three climatic regions in Canada. The trend detection framework includes the application of a non-parametric statistical test for trend and the use of...

Cover for Climate change related to erosion and desertification: 2. Africa.

As much as 87% of the African continent, north of the equator, is affected by accelerated soil erosion. In these developing regions, soil erosion and the associated environmental consequences directly affect the livelihood of the inhabitants. However, soil erosion rates are highly variable, from as ...

Cover for Natural hazards in forests: glacier and permafrost effects as related to climate change.

Atmospheric warming is predicted to be greater in polar regions than at lower latitudes and more pronounced at high altitudes than in lowlands. In polar regions, air and ground warming may lead to a more northerly extension of the boreal forest, as growing seasons lengthen and become warmer....

Cover for Climate change related to erosion and desertification: 1. Mediterranean Europe.

The combination of recent volcanic eruptions, frequent tectonic adjustments, weak sedimentary deposits and associated soils, and frequent high-intensity storms make the Mediterranean basin vulnerable to surface erosion by water and related climate changes. The region has experienced a long history...

Cover for Potential impacts of climate change on streamflow and flooding in snow-dominated forested basins.

Changes in climate resulting from increased atmospheric greenhouse gases may affect the frequency and magnitude of flooding in forested watersheds through changes in snowpack, soil moisture, and runoff production. The level of impact will vary among watersheds depending on climate regime and...
