A data-driven approach to assess large fire size generation in Greece

  
Natural Hazards, Vol. 88, No. 3. (2017), pp. 1591-1607, https://doi.org/10.1007/s11069-017-2934-z

Abstract

Identifying factors and drivers which control large fire size generation is critical for planning fire management activities. This study attempts to determine the role of fire suppression tactics and behavior, weather, topography and landscape features on two different datasets of large fire size (500–1000 ha) and very large fire size (>1000 ha) compared to two datasets of small fire size (<50 ha) which occurred in Greece, during the period 1984–2009. In this context, we used a logistic regression (LR) analysis and ...

Ecohydrology of an outbreak: mountain pine beetle impacts trees in drier landscape positions first

  
Ecohydrology, Vol. 6, No. 3. (June 2013), pp. 444-454, https://doi.org/10.1002/eco.1286

Abstract

Vegetation pattern and landscape structure intersect to exert strong control over ecohydrological dynamics at the watershed scale. The hydrologic implications of vegetation disturbance (e.g. fire, disease) depend on the spatial pattern and form of environmental change. Here, we investigate this intersection at Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest (TCEF), Montana, with a focus on the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) epidemic currently affecting the Rocky Mountains. We calibrated QuickBird remote sensing imagery with a leaf-level spectral library of local vegetation. We used this ...

 

Landform classification for site evaluation and forest planning: integration between scientific approach and traditional concept

  
Sains Malaysiana, Vol. 43, No. 3. (2014), pp. 349-358

Abstract

In this paper, we present an automated classification method of landform elements using an application of SAGA GIS software. The spatial assessment was done on the Yambaru forest area (YFA) in the northernmost part of Okinawa Island, Japan. This task is performed through the detailed elevation grid analyses from DTM of YFA with a spatial scale of 10 × 10 m2 supported by The Geospatial Information Authority of Japan. The classification has ten classes; high ridges, midslope ridges, upland drainage, upper ...

 

Storage and drivers of organic carbon in forest soils of southeast Germany (Bavaria) – Implications for carbon sequestration

  
Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 295 (May 2013), pp. 162-172, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2013.01.025

Abstract

[Abstract] Temperate forest soils of central Europe are regarded as important pools for soil organic carbon (SOC) and thought to have a high potential for carbon (C) sequestration. However, comprehensive data on total SOC storage, particularly under different forest types, and its drivers is limited. In this study, we analyzed a forest data set of 596 completely sampled soil profiles down to the parent material or to a depth of 1 m within Bavaria in southeast Germany in order to determine representative ...

 

Amount, distribution and driving factors of soil organic carbon and nitrogen in cropland and grassland soils of southeast Germany (Bavaria)

  
Agriculture, Ecosystems & Environment, Vol. 176 (August 2013), pp. 39-52, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.agee.2013.05.012

Abstract

[Highlights] [::] Drivers and distribution of agricultural SOC and N stocks of Bavaria were analyzed. [::] SOC differences between cropland and grassland are related to subsoil C. [::] Soil moisture controls SOC and N, temperature/precipitation are of minor importance. [::] Cropland and grassland soils in Bavaria store 242 and 134 Mt SOC and 19 and 12 Mt N. [::] For C sequestration soil types and topography are more important than land use. [Abstract] Agricultural soils have a high potential for sequestration of atmospheric carbon due to their volume ...

 

Modeling spatial patterns of saturated areas: a comparison of the topographic wetness index and a dynamic distributed model

  
Journal of Hydrology, Vol. 373, No. 1-2. (June 2009), pp. 15-23, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2009.03.031

Abstract

Topography is often one of the major controls on the spatial pattern of saturated areas, which in turn is a key to understanding much of the variability in soils, hydrological processes, and stream water quality. The topographic wetness index (TWI) has become a widely used tool to describe wetness conditions at the catchment scale. With this index, however, it is assumed that groundwater gradients always equal surface gradients. To overcome this limitation, we suggest deriving wetness indices based on simulations of ...

 

Ecological behavior of Quercus suber and Quercus ilex inferred by topographic wetness index (TWI)

  
Trees In Trees, Vol. 27, No. 5. (2013), pp. 1201-1215, https://doi.org/10.1007/s00468-013-0869-x

Abstract

The ecological behaviors of a network of pure evergreen oak stands (Quercus suber L. and Quercus ilex L.) in the Central-Western Mediterranean Basin were investigated toward climatic and edaphic factors implemented with the application of topographic wetness index (TWI). A Categorical Principal Component Analysis (Catpca) using climatic and soil physico-chemical parameters was performed on 23 cork oak and holm oak pure stands with the aim to understand better the effectiveness of TWI for characterizing soil ecology of the two species. Catpca ...

 

Methods to prioritize placement of riparian buffers for improved water quality

  
Agroforestry Systems, Vol. 75, No. 1. (2009), pp. 17-25, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10457-008-9134-5

Abstract

Agroforestry buffers in riparian zones can improve stream water quality, provided they intercept and remove contaminants from surface runoff and/or shallow groundwater. Soils, topography, surficial geology, and hydrology determine the capability of forest buffers to intercept and treat these flows. This paper describes two landscape analysis techniques for identifying and mapping locations where agroforestry buffers can effectively improve water quality. One technique employs soil survey information to rank soil map units for how effectively a buffer, when sited on them, would ...
