Ethics, Design and Planning of the Built Environment
Basta, C. ; Moroni, S. - \ 2013
Heidelberg : Springer (Urban and Landscape Perspectives 12) - ISBN 9789400752450 - 224
ethiek - steden - landen - aardwetenschappen - esthetische waarde - ethics - towns - countries - earth sciences - aesthetic value
The book proposes a set of original contributions in research areas shared by planning theory, architectural research, design and ethical inquiry. The contributors gathered in 2010 at the Ethics of the Built Environment seminar organized by the editors at Delft University of Technology. Both prominent and emerging scholars presented their researches in the areas of aesthetics, technological risks, planning theory and architecture. The scope of the seminar was highlighting shared lines of ethical inquiry among the themes discussed, in order to identify perspectives of innovative interdisciplinary research. After the seminar all seminar participants have elaborated their proposed contributions. Some of the most prominent international authors in the field were subsequently invited to join in with this inquiry. Claudia Basta teaches "Network Infrastructures and Mobility" at Wageningen University. Between 2009 and 2011 she worked as Coordinator of the 3TU Centre of Excellence for Ethics and Technology of Delft University, where she completed her post-doc research on the shared areas of investigation between risk theories, planning theories and ethical inquiry. Her main research interests concern the matter of assessing and governing technological risks in relation to sustainable land use planning. She wrote a number of journal articles and contributions to collective books on these themes. Stefano Moroni teaches “Land use ethics and the law” at Milan Politecnico. His main research interests concern planning theory and ethics. He is the author of a number of books and journal articles. Recent publications (as co-author): Contractual Communities in the Self-Organizing City (Springer 2012).

Digital Soil Mapping is the creation and the population of a geographically referenced soil database. It is generated at a given resolution by using field and laboratory observation methods coupled with environmental data through quantitative relationships. Digital soil mapping is advancing on different fronts at different rates all across the world. This book presents the state-of-the art and explores strategies for bridging research, production, and environmental application of digital soil mapping.It includes examples from North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The chapters address the following topics: - exploring new environmental covariates and sampling schemes - using integrated sensors to infer soil properties or status - innovative inference systems predicting soil classes, properties, and estimating their uncertainties - using digital soil mapping and techniques for soil assessment and environmental application - evaluating and using legacy soil data - protocol and capacity building for making digital soil mapping operational around the globe.
Applied Agrometeorology
Stigter, C.J. - \ 2010
Berlin : Springer - ISBN 9783540746973 - 1100
meteorologie - klimatologie - landbouw - milieubeheer - bosbouw - klimaatverandering - aardwetenschappen - meteorology - climatology - agriculture - environmental management - forestry - climatic change - earth sciences
This compendium first reviews regional operational applications of agrometeorology in the form of case studies of agrometeorological services and information. These services prepare farmers of different income levels for extreme weather and climate events and for the use of weather and climate “windows of opportunity” under conditions of a changing climate. Subsequently wide fields of application are covered such as crops (monocropping and multiple cropping, for which aspects of soils, pests, diseases, water, fertilizers and labour are discussed, in so far as they interact with agrometeorological factors), forestry, agroforestry, livestock, and fisheries. These fields are dealt with in a way that the contents form the bedrock material for establishment, improvement, extension and updating of agrometeorological services and information under these changing conditions. Operational supportive methods are finally reviewed and exemplified through case studies of their applications in the above mentioned fields, in approaches related to actual problem solving in agricultural production. This compendium also wants to create a renaissance in the teaching (that is education/training/ extension) of applied agrometeorology at all levels, closer to the livelihood of farmers and other growers.

Van Enschede-Noord is een hydrologische systeembeschrijving opgesteld op basis van abiotische gegevens, waarvoor een hoogtelijnenkaart, geologische kaart, bodem- en grondwatertrappenkaart, geomorfologische kaart en een kaart met stroomgebieden zijn gemaakt. De waterkwaliteit is gemeten om de potentiële vegetatie-ontwikkelingen te schetsen. Hierbij is ingedeeld naar basenrijkdom en mate van vervuiling, en naar chloride- en sulfaatgehalte. Van de stroomgebieden van de Jufferbeek, Leutinkbeek, Eschbeek-Vinkenbeek, Drienerbeken, Elsbeek, en Hoge Boekelerbeek zijn de potenties naar basenrijkdom redelijk aan te geven. Het grootste deel valt qua chloridegehalte in de klassen schoon en nauwelijks beonvloed, en qua sulfaatgehalte in de klassen matig en sterkbeonvloed.

Op de fiets door het geologisch landschap rond Vollenhove
Gonggrijp, G.P. - \ 1995
Gea : driemaandelijks tijdschrift van de Stichting Geologische Aktiviteiten voor Belangstellenden in de Geologie en Mineralogie 28 (1995)3. - ISSN 0167-4692 - p. 86 - 90.
geologie - aardwetenschappen - overijssel - geology - earth sciences
Ververwijderd van de grote steden en snelwegen ligt in de noordwesthoek van Overijssel een rustig en mooi stukje Nederland: het Land van Vollenhove. Daar wisselen opvallende hoogten, weiden, moerassen en plassen elkaar af. Deze boeiende afwisseling is te danken aan de typische geologische geschiedenis, de biologische ontwikkeling en de wijze waarop de mens in het landschap actief is geweest. In dit verhaal ligt het accent op de vorming van het fundament van het landschap door het geologische krachtenspel. De oppervlaktevormen verraden de invloedsfeer van deze krachten. Een geologisch profielwand in 'de Zandkoele' bij Heetveld toont de details van het ontstaan van het gebied.

Letter to the editor : Design-Based Versus Model-Based Sampling Strategies: Comment on R. J. Barnes' "Bounding the Required Sample Size for Geologic Site Characterization"
Gruijter, J.J. de; Braak, C.J.F. ter - \ 1992
Mathematical Geology 24 (1992)7. - ISSN 0882-8121 - p. 859 - 864.

Two fundamentally different sources of randomness exist on which design and inference in spatial sampling can be based: (a) variation that would occur on resampling the same spatial population with other sampling configurations generated by the same design, and (b) variation occurring on sampling other populations, hypothetically generated by the same spatial model, using the same sampling configuration. The former leads to the design-based approach, which uses classical sampling theory; the latter leads to the model-based approach and uses geostatistical theory. Failure to recognize these two sources of randomness causes misunderstanding about dependence of variables and the role of randomization in sampling, unwarranted narrowing down the choice of sampling strategies to those that are model-based, and abuse in simulation experiments. This is exemplified in Barnes' publication on the required sample size for geologic site characterization by nonparametric tolerance intervals. A basic design-based strategy like Simple Random Sampling is shown to require smaller sample sizes than the model-based strategy advocated by Barnes. In addition, Simple Random Sampling is completely robust against model errors and less complicated.
