Childhood overweight in Berlin: intra-urban differences and underlying influencing factors
BACKGROUND: In recent years, childhood overweight and obesity have become an increasing and challenging phenomenon in Western cities. A lot of studies have focused on the analysis of factors such as individual dispositions ...
Deglaciation and drainage-pattern development in the eastern Uckermark, Brandenburg, Germany
After retreat from the Angermünde Ice Margin, the Weichselian inland ice sheet fell apart into different independently acting ice tongues in the eastern Uckermark. In this region (bordering Poland), between the Angermünde ...
Landschappen in 3D
3D-printen van hoge resolutie terreinmodellen met overlays van geologie en orthofoto’s met ArcGIS en Blender
At the GIS-studio of the Faculty of Science (FNWI) at the University of Amsterdam, a project has been completed in which two maps (models) are produced in 3D using ArcGIS, Blender and a 3D printer. 3D printing is an emerging ...
Let your maps be fuzzy!—Class probabilities and floristic gradients as alternatives to crisp mapping for remote sensing of vegetation
Mapping vegetation as hard classes based on remote sensing data is a frequently applied approach, even though this crisp, categorical representation is not in line with nature's fuzziness. Gradual transitions in plant ...
Multiscale Spatiotemporal Analysis of Extreme Events in the Gomati River Basin, India
Accelerating climate change is causing considerable changes in extreme events, leading to immense socioeconomic loss of life and property. In this study, we investigate the characteristics of extreme climate events at a ...
Future glacial lakes in High Mountain Asia: an inventory and assessment of hazard potential from surrounding slopes
Bedrock overdeepenings exposed by continued glacial retreat can store precipitation and meltwater, potentially leading to the formation of new proglacial lakes. These lakes may pose threats of glacial lake outburst floods ...
Spatiotemporal Impacts of Urban Land Use/Land Cover Changes on Land Surface Temperature: A Comparative Study of Damascus and Aleppo (Syria)
Monitoring the impact of changes in land use/land cover (LULC) and land surface temperature (LST) is of great importance in environmental and urban studies. In this context, this study aimed to analyze the dynamics of LULC ...
Estimating Grassland Parameters from Sentinel‑2: A Model Comparison Study
Grassland plays an important role in German agriculture. The interplay of ecological processes in grasslands secures important ecosystem functions and, thus, ultimately contributes to essential ecosystem services. To ...
Short-Term Meteorological and Environmental Signals Recorded in a Firn Core from a High-Accumulation Site on Plateau Laclavere, Antarctic Peninsula
High-accumulation sites are crucial for understanding the patterns and mechanisms of climate and environmental change in Antarctica since they allow gaining high-resolution proxy records from firn and ice. Here, we present ...
